In society where pred/prey coexist would preds take bribes?

Postby AlgerHiss » Mon Jan 21, 2019 12:19 pm

I've been reading stories set in the "Hunting Hours" world by BizzareBlue and Combat. It's a world where pred and prey species coexist uneasily, and prey can be legally hunted/caught/eaten/etc if they're out past a certain time of night. In one story, a prey briefly attempted to bribe a pred that had caught her by offering money, and was quickly ignored. But it got me thinking.

In that kind of setting, would preds take bribes? Would an enterprising pred have a price sheet for services rendered? Would there be a going rate? Would it be an accepted practice, a legal grey area, or something more under-the-table in nature?

I mean as a pred, depending how hungry I am there is a point of no return and the bribe better be another meal. I would see something like a pred-for-hire almost like a hitman sort of thing where the price would be to hunt down and take out the prey of choice.

I could see some preds becoming protection escorts or even exclusively bodyguards for the right price

If you want to be REALISTIC, people don't need a whole person, and if you're out hunting for whole people then maybe you're literally starving and in poverty. A hefty bribe may be way more valuable, and you could see a vore mugging style "your money or your life" style thing where a prey hands over the cash or gets ate and their wallet and other valuables stolen. Less risk of injury for them to surrender the goods and make one's way out of there considering how much damage a large creature could potentially do in a theortetical vore scenario. It's not just "oh no you caught meeeee" as the prey gets instantly overpowered and bellied, even if it was illegal for some dumb reason to fight back there are instincts and prey may carry weapons, which may call into question why vore is happening in the first place but hey, when you make vore legal you're gonna have some PLOT HOLES.

That could be how feudalism works in more historical settings.

I see it going a step further, preds for hire as hit men. I mean it's perfect no body, no evidence no crime.

If prey paid me to swallow them and then bring them back up I would be all to happy to oblige. Not only would I fulfill their fantasy, but I get paid a bunch. And yes I would indeed let them back out, repeat business means I don't have to worry about debt >_>

Well I kinda think that the only ones that would benefit from a pred/prey society would be the predators. But for the sake of the fetish I'll suspend my disbelief and say: it'd probably depend. There are probably people that need the money but at the same time...what are the rules to this society? Can a pred take a preys possessions and money? or do they automatically get repossessed by the closest family? Is murder still illegal? As in if you don't eat the prey is it still considered hunting or is it now straight up murder? I ask because would eating the prey and taking their wallet be an acceptable thing or would that make you look like an asshole or criminal in the eyes of society? That might be a deciding factor for some predators. Another deciding factor would probably be the preys income, if they are super rich then obviously you'd get more money from sparing them than you would just stealing their stuff. Also given this is a fetish that often has a theme of being so hungry you'd casually eat your friends or neighbours how hungry the predator is would probably also be a factor.

For that matter would it be legal for prey out past curfew to kill in self-defense?

If we are talking about a realistic society, with resource scarcity and social stratification? I have no doubt that lower-class members of the pred species would most certainly take the money, if it was good enough, assuming they weren't so unscrupulous as to take the money and eat the prey anyway.

i'd say in any fantasy society that allows you to own items, that you can bribe someone. however it also depends on how preds feel about their desires if it's all consuming hunger then you're screwed... if it's a strong desire then bribes would work.

Since they could demand any price or any service, I'm sure that some would!

That's a neat idea. Prey could pay a predator to escort them at night, even though the arrangement could/would be abused sometimes.

I have another question! Are predators allowed to just keep prey indefinitely? Because if they are, they could hang on to them until they agree to pay.

This is reminding me of that Led Zeppelin song "Gallows Pole" where the condemned keeps trying to find someone who'll pay the hangman so he'll be let free. He finally finds someone to give him gold, and he even gets his sister to give the hangman sexual favours, and then he goes ahead and hangs him ANYWAY. I love depraved stuff where there's an ultimate betrayal like that!

I like this so much, it's ridiculous. Imagine a landlord/landlady eating someone. "This is the only place you can rent until you pay up!"

This sounds like the perfect kind of setting for the primary relations to also be Macro/Micro, Which would further enhance the fun.

The landlord thing could be EXTREMELY fun for people who think like me. I absolutely LOVE hopeless situations (for us prey, I mean). Say you're out of work, stuck in this dive of a basement rental that the landlord is overcharging you for. Then, yes, you fall behind on a payment and he freezes your assets, you become cash only and you have NO CASH. He says "it's all going to be fine once you catch up on your rent" but you can't do ANYTHING without a credit card, even travel is impossible. So any chance of getting work is ruined. And add on top of that: he's given you a DEADline of 3 months to pay the back rent or you get EATEN. So you're stuck, frantically trying to come up with ANY way to make some quick cash, but nothing will get you enough to satisfy him. So you're doomed...but it will be after the three months. You have to wait...and wait...and wait. An agony of suspense and dread. (Anyone else find that idea REALLY hot?)

Now there's a neat fucking idea. Imagine a sort of predator caste system in the beginning of a Renaissance sort of era. Royalty is the top preds who can easily nom anyone else, high nobility only really struggles to eat royalty, middle nobility and military commanders are nearly incapable of eating royalty / can barely choke down a high noble, monks/nuns/military field officers are actually incapable of eating royalty, and everything else shifts down, then field troops and merchants in guilds, then unguilded merchants, then peasants, then a true slave caste. Base your society off of Japan/Medieval Europe/India/Mycenean Greece at your leisure, or make a brand new society.

A bad king is on the throne, calling for too much in the way of taxes? The high nobility calls on a distant cousin of his, a woman even, to dispose of him so life becomes livable.

I could imagine the sort of bribe where I offer to supply the pred with other forms of nourishment in form of my partner/family/friends.
