Do you refrain from writing vore in non-vore context?

Postby Kitsouille » Tue Jan 29, 2019 1:54 am

Whether you write short stories or big stories of if you are a GM and write scenarios for roleplaying games or just do any kind of creative art, do you ever keep yourself from doing something because you're afraid it's going to be obvious and someone is going to comment about vore? For example, being eaten is a primal fear and is a legitimately terrifying threat to go against, but then you stop because you're afraid you're gonna be found out or something.

Nah. Can't resist putting vorish fanservice into my work. If people wanna take issue with that, I direct them to the likes of Made in Abyss. That guy certainly didn't hold back on the loli content and everyone and their mom loves MiA regardless.

edit: Actually, lemme give a longer answer. As a rule there is nothing inherently wrong with fanservice, of any variety. Even if it is something extremely niche like vore. If the author wants to put something sexy into their work, that's their prerogative. Nothing wrong with having some fun with your writing. Only when it becomes obvious that is taking focus away from the actual story or character development, then it becomes distracting. And your audience should rightfully complain.
Hey you. Buy my stuff.

As long as it doesn't turn into a "Magical Realm" scenario, I'd say it's fine.

I have actively avoided creatures that swallow player characters as an attack specifically to avoid magical realming my loved ones.

Nope, I think vore has some great horror applications in a non-sexual setting.

As with any writing, I think it depends partly on one's audience. While I think the author has the final say and should write what he or she wants to write about, these's also some level of writing to any audience that should be there, I think, to make a story really compelling and exciting to read. This isn't to say you should try and please everyone (because that's impossible, I think), but also it really helps to have someone (or a group of someones) in mind on some level.

That said, I try to avoid making it too explicit or put too much focus on it depending on the situation. In some cases I may slip it in there, but if I think it's going to make players or the like uncomfortable, I'll try to tone it down/leave it out. (Uncomfortable in a bad way, of course—obviously horror has some degree of necessary discomfort to work) .

Absolutely not. I have far too much pride to let fear change how I act.
That said, I find it's important to keep the story's purpose in mind. If it's not meant to be erotic, then the vore shouldn't be focused on or written in a way that's erotic. It's one character trying to kill another, or an explanation for why the game's next level is all fleshy - not fap fodder - and it needs to be treated as such.
A foot fetishist could write a story that involves kicking without it devolving into foot-porn, right? Same principal.

I try. There are situations where, if I feel like it, I'll pop some vore in on the side, in the back ground. "Serious conversation going on in the foreground, random towns-person disappearing down the gullet of a minotaur or centaur or whatever in the back ground."
Cats, snakes, dragons, foxes, anything yummy, come come come, get in my TUMMY!

Show me your hell, and I'll make it worse.

Whenever I write something that isn't meant to be a vore-focused story, I try to avoid writing vore into it in any way. I have once written something where a couple characters almost got eaten, but I made sure to keep it unwilling (only unwilling would work in that context tbh) and in the end, nobody got eaten. I guess maybe I'm a little afraid that littlest things could possibly give it away.

Nope! There isn't a logical reason to. I do however restrict myself to not sexualizing it generally speaking. If I'm going to present someone getting nommed to someone who I don't have reason to believe is a voraphile, it should be designed with the way they'd see it in mind.

Yes and no? I don't go trying to insert my kinks into places where they don't belong, especially dragging non-vore RP partners into it for my own gratification (that wonderful "magical realm" thing mentioned above), but the general concept of someone getting eaten has a lot of overlap in other places, and I don't always shy away from using it where it's appropriate. I just don't use it for kink purposes in those cases and play it straight. For example, I have characters in non-vore stories that eat people. Not because I think it's hot, but because it suits their character/species and makes sense in the story. I'm not looking for excuses to include anything involving vore, but I'm not going out of my way to exclude it in a relevant context, either.
It's not whether you include it that can make things weird, but why you're including it.

It make sense that there is a good way to do it and a bad way. Lol at the magical realm btw, I did not know that term but it's exactly what I'm trying to avoid. I was wondering about this topic out of personal reason, but I figured it would be something that happens to other people and thought it would make good discussion.

The personal reason is mainly about writing D&D scenarios and it would include stuff like giants, and well, it could happen. Of course if every giants' first thing to do/combat tactics would be about gulping up anything tiny to them, it would be very much magical realming. Other things like a sexy soul-eating succubus or a sexy bloodsucking vampire is more mixed, because it's not particularly weird or suspiciously lewd. I don't find it odd if either of those get turned on by the idea of killing me and absorbing my "life essence", but I'd be self-conscious writing this kind of character for others.

Also shrinking characters feels like a great idea because mundane things become dangerous and even rats can become quite fearsome. There can be a plethora of reasons for being shrunk (captured by an evil sorcerer, put through a trial, need to interact with a species of tinies, etc.) but describing the threats of being so small also inevitably comes with telling the party they got much much lower in the food chain...
