Really well written stuff here. Nothing like reading something from someone like you to keep an idiot like me from getting an ego.

Loved the setting, I'm sure most of us have had to deal with characters like the ones you portrayed, making it easier to connect with, and enjoy their misery.

As a more personal question, what's so bad about GTS City? I've been trying to get some more critique on my garbage and it was one of the places I considered posting it.



Author's Response:

Being well-written isn't the final word in fiction, particularly in erotic fiction.  It's a bonus, true, but there are people writing totally awesome fetish pr0n whose literary skills are, to say the least, challenged.  Gator, for example, will certainly never challenge Hemingway, but he is so creative and has such a great grasp of the material that we'll forgive him almost anything (like repeatedly spelling gargantuan as garganuine).

As for the characters, I admit to doing the same thing you do (like in your magical shrinking hammer-chair story), namely, use real people as a basis for realism.  I don't, as a rule, lift people whole and stick them in a story, it being a rather rude intrusion into their privacy (although I've done it a few times), but rather pick elements from their personality and combine them with elements from other people's personalities (or my own).  Feels a bit like playing God, doesn't it?

Regarding GTS City, I don't want to get into too much of the squalid background, but suffice it that on the subject of censorship, I am with Abbie Hoffman.  (During one interview, Hoffman was asked by a reporter if it was true that he supported total freedom of expression.  Abbie agreed that was the case, to which the reporter posed the question of the classic problem of someone shouting 'fire' in a crowded theatre.  Abbie's response was: "FIRE! FIRE!")  The City is also part of a much larger problem in which the SW/GTS enterprises which turn a profit from the fetish quietly silence anyone who questions their hegemony of the online community.  I don't care to get involved in the ugly drama, but I also don't wish to tactitly condone their behaviour, so I boycott them.  Authoritarians of all stripes enjoy the phrase, "If you don't like it, leave."  So I did.  And as a result, this is the first story I've contributed to the general weal of the fetish community in years.

The best way to get critiques of your work is to get to know other fetish writers personally.  In the old days, a bunch of us (a lot whose names are associated with what has come to be known as "the classics" of the genre, like Grildrig, Chimp Howdy, Zotster, Sally Reynolds, myself, et al.) sort of hung out together online, mostly on IRC, and read each other's work with a critical eye, improving each other's skills and basking in each other's praise.  Even if you get criticism here, it likely is not going to be in a form which is useful to you as a writer: "ZOMG, MORE FEET!" or "VIOLENT GIANTESSES SUCK!" is a lot more likely than criticisms around writing style.  If you ever drop by IRC, I can almost always be found in #Shrinkingwomen on DALnet.

Summary:

I decided to let loose a fetish to my girlfriend, Alex. She agreed to try it, but now I owe her...

Not exactly my cup of tea, but from what you have here it seems like someone who IS into this sort of thing would enjoy it. The characters are decently fleshed out, though I'd say using different language when describing things would make it a much more pleasant read. For example, having a female character who's a tomboy is A-Ok, lots of people like that sort of thing, but it gets a bit iffy when she gets described as having a male-ness to her looks. That tends to conjure up images of women with a 5 o' clock shadow, which I'm assuming was not your intent. Other than that, one thing that helps me a lot is to keep a thesaurus on hand to vary up your word choice, and keep things more interesting. While still not my thing, you do seem to know your way with writing a lot better than a lot of things I've read, and should keep working on it.

Author's Response:

I was trying to hit on a sort of androgyny that bordered on masculinity, but yeah. I can get that. And I do plan to keep working, just reading around right now to see what works in certain scenes and what doesn't.

Summary:

A young man meets a mysterious and exotic girl in a new houseshare. But one act of curiousity leads to him discovering an ancient secret about her.

First off let me start by saying that, while short, this was very well written. The only problems I had were with the intro. While I can appreciate wanting to get to the action part quickly, spending just a bit more time establishing setting, and your main characters would be good to lead into the rest of the story. It's normally tough to make a character seem mysterious, and not make it seem like the author was just lazy about their characterization, but you did that very well. I liked that the girl was never named as well, adding to her mystery.

Still, much better written than I had expected. Expanding just a tiny bit more on what's going on at all times, as well as the intro when establishing setting can usually help though. Once the actual action scene did start things progressed a bit faster than expected, but overall it's a good piece. Hope you do some more sometime.

Man I was gonna comment on this a hundred years ago but I totally forgot until i saw it re-mentioned a couple of hours ago.

So, yeah. I'm really liking this. I know they're meant to be short stories, but just being a slight touch longer would be nice :>. The language and such is all gr8 though and I hope you keep it up and do something Christmas related since everyone seems to enjoy Christmas and these are all tiny and easy.

SO YEAH GO DO THAT.
