My entry for this month's art challenge by Bright, "Fail Date". While it doesn't exactly depict a date, per se, I feel it fits the spirit of the challenge.
---
Princess Giselle Seraphine "Dragongut", here, is the sole child of the king and queen of Athaine. Her parents had a great deal of trouble conceiving, so much so that the queen sought the help of a witch. The witch helped the queen conceive with a potion made from the heart of a dragon. At birth, the princess seemed normal, but as she grew, so did her appetite and strength. At the age of thirteen, her dragon side fully manifested for the first time when she swallowed her maid whole. Ever since then, she has been unable to help herself from eating the occasional person. Her stomach can seemingly dissolve anything, with an average peasant being turned to mush in about forty-five minutes, and even the biggest, burliest knight in full plate armor being reduced to chyme in less than two hours. At her current age of eighteen, Giselle needs more than her weight in food every day to stay healthy, and is able to swallow creatures as large as an average dragon. Though she tries to quell her hunger with livestock, she frequently loses control and slurps down the nearest person. Despite her struggles to contain her appetite, Giselle secretly enjoys the feel of live prey struggling in her belly. When her emotions or hunger run high, her eyes develop slits pupils like a dragon, and since she was fifteen, she has been able to breathe fire like a dragon, though she finds it exhausting to do so.

Capable of eating your average dragon huh? I like the sound of that.

For reference an "average" dragon in her world is about 36 feet long with neck outstretched, not including the tail, which adds about another 30 feet on a dragon that size.

Impressive stomach she's got. Would be pretty cool to see that.

I'll probably post something like that eventually.

You'd think suitors would stop showing up after a while! Well, if she keeps going out with them she at least seems to think she'll hold back on a date someday!

Her family has managed to keep it hushed up. So, the suitors don't know what they're getting into.

Given that an 'average dragon' then must be something like 20 times her mass and strength, and the fact that princesses seem to be a favorite dragon food, I am wondering how she could eat the dragon before it eats her instead?

She's crazy-strong from her "dragon side". While she can't strike as hard as a dragon, she's still stronger than most human knights and on par with the average ogre if she were inclined to throw a punch, and her muscles are better optimized for lifting and grappling. In that, she has equal footing with an average dragon. And she has surprise on her size.

Also, just a note, but even if that weren't a factor, strength generally doesn't scale with mass, it scales with the cube root of mass. At least when obeying the square-cube law, and I'll admit most of the stuff on this site does not follow it, including much of my stuff.

Yes, it is probably pointless to bring up anything related to 'science' here when both audience and author accept in these alternate universes that humans can swallow other humans whole, and apparently even dragons twenty times their mass. I cannot imagine anyone though bringing up the square-cube law yet imagines a human somehow pushing the live body of another human through the collarbone and ribcage which even if it were possible would still burst their lungs, and their wind pipe would be blocked long enough to suffocate. This story though, if modified just a little, could be far more plausible than most human on human vore if she were a shape shifting dragon to begin with, which is pretty much accepted in the mainstream fantasy genre (unlike people swallowing gigantic dragons). If that were the case, she could realistically swallow an adult human whole while in her dragon form, and then when he is safely through her chest cavity, and broken down a fair amount, she could safely transform back into human form with only a fairly bloated belly, though it wouldn't have to be beyond natural limits. The storyline could be that her family is trying to keep their dragon heritage a secret from their subjects, and there are only a few places in their castle big enough where they can take their dragon form, so as soon as human prey is digested enough to be manageable, they return to human form, though still avoid being seen by servants until the belly bulge is completely gone, which would be fairly quick given their bone dissolving, draconic digestive system. But back to the science, and relative strengths of various species, an alligator the same size as human has more than a hundred times the bite force as the human. It is a bit absurd to think any human sized creature would have the strength to subdue and swallow a sixty foot long dragon that doesn't want to be swallowed, and it would be impossible anyway for anything shaped like a human, which is why swallowing them first in dragon form makes this more feasible. Just an idea to make the first sensible human swallowing human story ever!

Well, that's not the story I want to tell. And, frankly, I don't really consider it any more "sensible". It's just a matter of personal preference.

I can imagine she burped up the helmet. A good classical trope in vore fiction.

There's a certain thing with the shadows here that is bothering me a little bit.
The fire seems to be the source of lighting in the picture, but all the shadows point in the opposite direction.

The helmet was definitely burped up. If you look closely, you can see some strands of saliva. As for the lighting, yeah, the shadows are pointing in the wrong direction. I ran into some issues when rendering with just the fire, everything came out too dark, so I had to add overhead light, messing up the shadows.
