It’s Bigger Than You

It's Bigger Than YouExcellent thread—including the replies—on how we all benefit when more voices are included in size fantasy.  Stepping outside yourself and your particular thirst also makes for better smut.

ETA:  Jitensha has posted a status update on DA that discusses, among other things, being traumatized by the toxic entitlement that some people in the size community have.

War Stories

This one is for Arctic Giantess, Toll_Orialcon, and everyone on the front lines.  GentleApril20 entry.  Author’s Notes at bottom.


 

The new resident, Brian, backed through the breakroom doors with his arms held out in front of him, bent up at the elbows like a surgeon.  Like all of us, now.  He didn’t notice me as he went straight to the sink, tapped the footplate for hot water, collected some soap, and began scrubbing.

I waited until he was done before speaking.  “Take a load off, Brian.”

He put on fresh gloves, made some coffee in the Keurig, snagged a chair with his foot, then lowered his mask to sip the bitter brew.

She rushed three houses, but she felt the deepest affinity for Gamma Gamma Gamma.  Their rush dinner was hosted by Kristina, a tall Korean-American woman with long rich brown hair and proud cheekbones.  All the Tri-Gams were confident and welcoming, and they seemed quite diverse in their backgrounds and ambitions.  Kristina showed more than a polite interest in Tracy’s stories, talking with her long after the other rushees had left.  There was a resourcefulness to Kristina’s smile that Tracy wanted to get closer to.
