GTS Vivian R.I.P.

Goodbye

WordPress won’t let me post any of Vivian’s art that means so much to me, so go look at her DeviantArt gallery.  She was a blessing, and she will be missed.

ETA:  Vivian’s friend Reol discusses her life (she was 33) and the future of her work.

SizeCon 2020 is happening this weekend, and although I’m not attending, I’m still deriving a vicarious buzz.  A bunch of size enthusiasts will be having the vertiginous experience of going public for the first time, and size veterans will be meeting friends old and new.  All throughout this weekend, I will pause from my labors, cast a thought to New Jersey, and feel both a shiver and a warm thrill.

I will be there in lexical form, and for now that will have to do.

Taedis has generously and industriously compiled twenty-eight size fantasy stories into a paperback volume that he will give away at SizeCon2020.  Diligently, he has included URLs for all authors so you can find their other work.  I am honored that he included my story Glad You Came, which I wrote as a tribute to everyone who worked so hard to make the first SizeCon possible.

It’s been one year since I fled Tumblr after it was hit by the Pornocalypse.  I still miss the daily interaction, but I also don’t regret my decision to slow down and concentrate on writing.  It was about as difficult a transition as I had expected, that is, not very.  Only a handful of people visit this blog, but I enjoy composing for them and I’m happy with the feedback.  Time for a tumbler (heh) of Oban 14 and some reflection.

Aborigen has put out a poll asking for first impressions on the 35 writers who have submitted three or more stories to Size Riot, a category which includes me.  He neglects to say whether he will share the results with anyone, but I expect it will be a useful exercise nonetheless.  If you have any thoughts to share, please give it a go.

Shrunken Men, Giantesses, Nice Guys, and Toxic Masculinity

This post is proximally in reply to this comment by Aborigen, but it obviously is the result of many years of observation, rumination, self-recrimination, and determination. I cannot emphasize enough that these are my personal feelings and experiences, and the last thing I want is to assert that they are somehow generally representative of even most hetmale size fantasists, let alone everyone in the community. To be frank, this is more of a personal journal entry than a public comment, but over the years I have seen and heard things that resonate with my thoughts on these subjects, and so I’m going to digress all over the place in the hope that it might help someone somewhere deal with their own feelings and experiences.
