I just got kinda bored of going "Hey, don't know what this is go look it up" in the warnings for my stories, especially since I have some very specific types of vore I center my focus on that you might not find in a quick trip to Google/wikipedia.  Also, please bear in mind that all the information here comes from what I know from personal experience looking around and such.  If there's something I haven't covered, let me know--I may or may not include it depending on it's relation to the sort of work I tend to do.



A little bit about vore in general:
:bulletred:  Vore is short for "vorarephillia" (I've seen a few spellings, but this is the first I came across, so...).  It is a fetish relating to swallowing another, being swallowed, or observing the act.  So works bearing the warning lable of "vore" contain a character swallowing another character.
:bulletorange:  There are two main categories of vore:  hard vore and soft vore.  In hard vore, the prey is consumed in the method you eat food--there is ripping, chewing, that sort of thing.  In soft vore, the prey is swallowed whole and often times alive.
:bulletyellow:  There are three main sub-categories of vore (by "main" I mean the ones I see most often):  Oral vore, Genital vore, and anal vore.  They are all exactly what they sound like.
:bulletgreen:  There are quite a few other types of vore, including breast vore, tail vore, absorption vore, plant vore, etc.  Pretty much anything you can think of can be somehow used for it, really.
:bulletblue:  There are many specific sub-types of vore, such as micro/macro where one character is much smaller/larger than the other, same-size vore, and more.
:bulletpurple:  Vore can either be fatal or non-fatal.  It's a fantasy fetish for the most part (unless you count things like getting killed and eaten by wild animals), so some people decided to take it further with things like the non-fatal stuff.  Other times the prey is simply regurgitated before digestion can kill them or harm them too much.



A little bit about the work I will post here:
:bulletred:  All of my work will be soft, non-fatal vore with very few, if any, exceptions.  At this time, I have no plans for any fatal vore projects.
:bulletorange:  At this time, all projects I have planned will be oral vore, because I don't care much for the other types.
:bulletyellow:  The vast majority of my work will be male/male, though I may throw some male/female in there.  But don't count on it.
:bulletgreen:  The majority of my work will be protection and/or comfort vore.  In this case the pred swallows the prey in order to provide them with protection, and comfort.
:bulletblue:  There will be times when the prey is a bit scared at first, or even outright terrified.  However, in the end they will come to enjoy it once they realize they are in no danger at all and are as safe as they could possibly be.
:bulletpurple:  To me, the idea of being so completely protected and so incredibly close to one you care greatly for is what I like. The level of trust that the "prey" must have in the pred to allow it is immense.
:bulletblack:  The idea of the pred wanting to protect the prey in the most complete and intimate way possible, holding them within themselves, is also something I like.
:bulletpurple:  I greatly enjoy prey who are happy to be so close to the pred because, really, how can one be closer to somebody than literally inside of them, almost part of them?
:bulletblue:  I also enjoy situations where the prey originally believes they will die, but is alright with it because they care so deeply for the pred they are willing to give their life to sustain the pred, and desire to be as useful as possible--and how can you be more useful than that, sacrificing yourself to fulfill the needs of another who you are so devoted to?
:bulletgreen:  In the above situations, however, the prey will always end up surviving.
:bulletyellow:  I don't mind digestion, and will have works that include it--however in each situation it is painless, and the prey is "reformed" afterwards.  I don't plan to write anything fatal, like I said.  It's fantasy already, why not go even farther?
:bulletyellow::bulletyellow:  There is one exception to this.  I may include pain initially, though it will end painlessly.  I may also include "semi-fatal" digestion, in which the "prey" is reformed a significant amount of time after digestion occurs.


Why I like vore--a quick summary so I don't have to retype it over and over and over when explaining it to people.

Awwww you like the more happy and fluffy vore too? Yay! Though I more prefer M/f child vore I just like any happy fluffy vore. This helps a lot to understand myself better believe it or not. So thank you for writing this, you did great.

Oh God. This is sounds so sweet.
Interesting! I totally don't have the vore fetish, I think it's really a weird fetish (well, a lot of fetishes are weird), but now I do comprehend it a LOT better. I think I could find it kinda sweet. I'll check out some of your works! I love male/male stuff anyway. :3

Haha, it is most definitely weird. But then, I think everybody has at least one weird thing they like, even if it's not a fetish. :meow"

I'm glad that you're willing to give some of my work a try. :meow:

Of course, I can't speak for all vore fans with how I like it, there are many different reasons people might like it and such. But I can't really stand that fatal stuff for the most part--I just feel too guilty that somebody died. XD

Yeah, for example, for some reason I have the omorashi fetish. It means you're aroused by the idea of someone having a full bladder in a situation in which he/she can't go to the bathroom. Weird, huh? XD I know, but I can't help it! (Not like I have</> to help it, lol)
I'd like to write r-18 stuff, but I feel so embarassed everytime I try. And I'm talking about "normal" r-18 stuff, so if I would try writing something containing omorashi... Waaaah that would be SO embarassing. I envy you! ;w;

I don't like when people get hurt in every kind of erotic stuff too. ;_;

It really is strange the things people find arousing. Now, if only we could all live in harmony and not bother each other for it, right? XD

It's still embarrassing to write, ahaha. Sex scenes are especially hard. >_> ...Actually, I don't think I've ever written a happy sex scene.

But the only reason I'm able to even post this stuff is because this is actually an alternate account--I'm too embarrassed/shy to post it to my main account, ahaha.

Yeah. I mean it's just... Okay, I like angst, and some situations I actually find that pain is good--but not when it's erotic. I don't... I mean, yeah, certain stories call for things that are painful, but I've never found the actual pain itself to be erotic. It's just... I feel so bad for the poor characters. ;_;

Just now stumbled onto your page and I really like how you've created this journal. Informative, easy to read, and down-to-earth. Though I don't usually care for MM vore, I'm going to have to come back another time to see what you've done. It's far too late right now XD

I took a look and read through some of your stories. Your talent for writing is great! Though I notice you have a few 'key phrases' that are used a few times, you put a lot of detail into the stories. My personal favorite was Warmth. You gave a very believable scenario that actually gave good purpose for the actual vore part.

Like I said, I'm not one for M/M stories too much, but yours were grand! Keep up the good work :)

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed some of my work! And I'm glad about Warmth, especially--it took forever to try and remove the most glaring plot-holes for that scenario. XD

Mmm, would you mind pointing out the phrases I tend to favor? I know they're there, I just can't remember which ones I tend to abuse... XD

I'm glad you like my work, and I'll do my best to keep it up!

Yeah. I understand them not liking it--that's totally okay! But as long as we're not hurting anybody, I don't see why they have to dislike us as people. Just because I don't like what somebody else likes doesn't mean I hate them for liking it...

You speak the truth. And honestly, there's PLENTY of other things out there that would be more disconcerting than what we like. I'd wager that many of those people who attack vore lovers personally have their own skeletons in the closet.

Hey, no problem! Like I always say, life happens! School, especially, throws a wrench in plans. I know it all too well!

Indeed. Especially things that can be re-created in real life. I mean, especially with the non-fatal types of vore, it's something that's absolutely impossible IRL, and anybody who doesn't get that has a problem telling fantasy from reality. And yeah, I agree--they've got their own things they'd rather people not find out about, or they've got their own fetishes. What really bugs me, though, is when non-vore fans who have fantasy fetishes (especially those commonly considered 'fucked up' like furries) start bashing us. I mean, they should know full well how it hurts to be mindlessly attacked with inaccurate or incomplete information. Hell, even people with less "fucked up" fetishes, like weight gain or something attack us but they know what it's like to be attacked. -_-'

I just don't get why people who know how it feels decided to turn that on others--they know it hurts, so why spread it? Why not spread love instead? D:

Your style of vore is... interesting. It is very sweet. I look at some vore related things from time to time. I'm a fan of Karbo's work. I don't consider myself to be a vore fetishist though. I guess that makes it more of an... interest? Something that intrigues me? I dunno. You do really great work though and I enjoyed reading about your preferred vore style and your stories. Keep up the good work. You earned a watcher. (:

Alright, I'm slightly confused about one thing... The different types of VORE. Oral Vore is obvious, but... the other types... I don't understand O.=.o Does someone go in through the genitalia...? But that would be really painful... Or is that part of the body eaten and no other part of the body is eaten...? That doesn't really make sense to me... But otherwise, very good explanation :P Especially good with the part about why you like VORE so much. Oh, also... e-mail? *pokes* Or are you back on AIM now?

ShadowedLightning Featured By Owner May 2, 2011
Like I said, it's exactly what it sounds like. And really, it doesn't matter if it should hurt, since swallowing something as large as yourself should logically hurt, too. Personally, I don't enjoy those for the most part (though considering I absolutely love well-written works, I might enjoy the story simply for how well it's written rather than the content, ahaha).

And yeah, hopefully I'll be able to get back to AIM and mail after next Monday--that's when pretty much everything is due by, so I should be finished up by then. This week shall be hell, though. Dx

...So... was what I said correct? I don't think the eating part would be that great, I like the more swallowing stuff cause it's more romantic with the other person, y'know, not dying and all... Yeah, it's not fair to say you totally won't like a certain genre even if it's very well written...
