I'm a terrible smut writer, so I focus on ethical questions, morality, fate, and emotional impact of vore instead.

Glad you liked it! I've got longform stories in the same vein- check out my series, Daniel: https://aryion.com/g4/view/530119

Yeah, there was definitely more I could have done here with her charcter (she's a bit cardboard-y), but I've been trying to keep myself limited to 1500 words for each of these.

Fourth Seal and Daniel were different beasts. I love them both, but I think this story shows my writing skills have improved. It also took waaaay less time to write.

Thanks for reading and enjoying my stories!

My writing group discusses this exact conundrum every day. I'll let you know if we find an answer.

That's very high praise, thank you kindly.

On a personal note, I think this site deserves compelling stories. I hope to continue to make content like this in the future.

Cheers!

You are absolutely correct. In Daniel, Rebecca is the the heartless villain, and Alina has to deal with the effects of her wanton cruelty. Most of that story is told from Alina's POV, so it's really hard to build sympathy for Rebecca.

Uncollar is meant to show how someone like Rebecca can get beaten down by years of the predator lifestyle, but find that it can very difficult to get away from.

I hope you enjoyed the story! Thanks for leaving a comment and sharing your thoughts (and for the shout out in that forum post)! There should be some lighter stories coming out soon!

Progressive - 2 weeks ago

I had to cut a major scene from this story. It wasn't working and interfered with the flow and pacing too much.

The good news is that I'm making that leftover content into it's own short story. It's another tearjerker (cause I seem to only write intensely emotional stories these days) about Rebecca's husband. Should be ready in the next two weeks.

Thanks for leaving a comment! Cheers!

I poured a lot of myself into this one. I've flirted with addiction problems far too often myself, so writing this has been rather cathartic.

An archway of moonlit iridescent masonry, all blues and greens, stood erect in the far corner of Nightingale's estate. It was a bold, ancient thing, littered with delicate masonic inlays depicting horned animals and enchanting forests. Some of the runes Keziah recognized, others were too archaic.

I'm not really into AV myself (and had never written it before), but I saw the opportunity to try it here. I think I really managed to squeeze enjoyment out of it, though. For the record though, I learned how to write AV from the amazingly talented Brazzel (https://aryion.com/g4/gallery/Brazzel), so definitely go check them out for more written vore greatness.

Progressive - 3 months ago

I'm afraid there is no more context to give: the names and personas of my characters and the explicit details of my settings are very important to me. As such, I do not want anyone to use them at this time.

I wouldn't claim to be the first person to come up with an Earth-like setting where only some women had voring capabilities, nor am I the only one to muse on the potential kinds of societies might arise from such a setting. I'd ask that you write your own setting with similar mechanics, but in no way use or make reference to the specific places, people and events I described in my stories (Daniel and Collar, in this case).

I know it may seem unreasonable, but I'm not asking you to understand; I'm asking you to respect my wishes.

Thank you.

Progressive - 3 months ago

My apologies, but I do not presently condone the creation of fan fictions of my work and ask that you do not use the setting or characters from any story I post here for any such endeavor. The stories and the characters within remain very precious to me and I would appreciate retaining sole control over them.
Thank you for your understanding.

Progressive - 3 months ago

This series, the Fourth Seal, is my primary focus at the moment. As for Collar/Daniel, I've only got one idea in the works for that universe at the moment. It's more of a half-written pet project which I work on occasionally. It will be released when it's ready.
Thanks for your interest!

Your kind words warm my heart. I'm very glad you enjoyed the series.

Expect more flawed characters and slow digestions from me in the future - those are some of my favorite things.

Progressive - 2 months ago

I am humbled by your praise and I am really glad you enjoyed this series!

If you haven’t already, I’d suggest you read Collar (https://aryion.com/g4/view/529597). It’s Rebecca's diary from before the events of this series and provides a different (improved, in my opinion) view of chapter 8. I’ve got an outline for a follow up for Rebecca’s story, however, work on it has been put aside until my current project’s first arc is complete.

I have no current plans to create anything new with Alina or Daniel at this time.

Cheers!

Haha. That would have been nice, wouldn't it? I think a "magic belly healing" ending would have felt a bit cheap after the extreme emphasis on digestion. Plus, the message of the story would have been entirely different if the epilogue panned out that way.

I feel that Alina and Daniel's relationship wouldn't have lasted if he had recovered. Sure, he'd feel indebted to her for a while, but I believe that Alina wouldn't have learned the lesson she was supposed to from this story. One of the themes I explored with this was the idea of infatuation vs love.

Alina starts the story infatuated with Daniel, and she's twisted herself into trying to be right for him - instead of trying to be right for herself. When she gets thrown into this ordeal her feelings get tested: did she truely love him, or was it just an obsession? I believe that the ending shows that Alina did ultimately love him. Had her feelings only been infatuation, she would have kept him in his pathetic state forever because having him would have been enough to satisfy the obsession. But by making the hard choice to put him out of his misery, Alina gave up the thing she wanted most in the world ~for Daniel~.

She loved that boy, dammit.

So, the discrepancy is mostly due to how each of them received the information. Rebecca gets the 1:6 number from a doctor in Collar; arguably, a more reliable source. Whereas Alina’s experiences with seeing vore in society comes from television and other, less reliable sources. I imagine that news reporting in Alina’s world reflects the reporting in our world (these are still humans we’re talking about), and therefore certain things are way more broadcast than others. See this chart for an example of what I am talking about: (https://www.niemanlab.org/images/Over-and-underrepresentation-of-deaths-in-media.png) Therefore, Alina has an exaggerated sense of it. She’s also thirteen or so in this scene and wants to impress her friends, so she’ll take a guess to sound like she knows what she's talking about.

An interesting aside, if you are curious: I spent a lot of time thinking about what the ratio of vore-capable women to non-capable should be in a sustainable human society. I looked up models for insect species that practice sexual cannibalism to get a sense for how those populations survive and how the practice impacted female fecundity. I also wanted to get an accurate ratio of male:female offspring just to know what a sustainable society that includes vore would look like. To that end, I started making mathematical models to track populations based on a variety of factors (I’m a dork - this is what I do for fun).

Somewhere along the way I came to realize that I was the author of this setting and I could just set the ratio to whatever I wanted, as long as it sounded reasonable.

Your observation about non-swallowers is correct though. In retrospect, I should have included more named female characters who were vore-incapable (or at least, showed no intent to do it if they were) to better reflect the ratio that I gave. It didn't help that most of the story was focused on Rebecca and her posse of hongry gurls, so the perception is greatly skewed in that direction too.

Progressive - 5 months ago

In Collar, Rebecca was under the impression that her dad 'left their family'. This version is more general and avoids pinning any specific reasons to his absence.

I personally feel that the details of his departure don't matter for the sake of this story. The point of the Rebecca chapters was to humanize the antagonist of the story and to compare her to Alina.

Therefore, I leave it to you, dear reader, to decide his fate for yourself.

Alina Robinson charged out of the classroom. She had already been in a bad mood this week, but today it had boiled over. The classroom bell rung and she was already out of the hallway and turning the corner before other students started emerging.

I'm glad you liked it so much. I'm flattered that you consider Collar among your favorites.

With regard to lacking lewd content, I should say up front: it's unlikely that you'll see much lewd writing from me. It's generally something I avoid when I write, unless it's relevant to the story - I tend to be much more interested in plots and conflicts that occur because of vore.
