So I finally cracked and wrote a political size-fantasy story. This one has death, destruction, hard vore, scat, and more catharsis than we’re ever likely to see from our actual political system. Felt good to write it, though.
It was a Sunday morning, just like Pearl Harbor. I was having a smoke before the start of my shift at the Washington Monument. I had that job since they finally reopened after the renovations. Of course it’s closed again like all the rest. I suppose I should be looking for another job, but I just don’t see the point.
I was on the observation floor when it first hit. It wasn’t very long, less than two seconds. A sharp jolt shook the Monument, and I felt it worst on top. I didn’t have time to worry about the Monument falling down, and afterward I spent several minutes just holding a railing and convincing myself that it was over and that I would be okay. I was mistaken on both points.

My GiantJuly19 entry. Author Notes at bottom.
I came here to get away from humans.
The island was perfect, well-forested and well north of the trade currents. I had built a cabin and learned the local fisheries. I had even cultivated some elderberries. It was too good to last.

I’m torn between being vain enough to want to know what people think are elements of my “signature style” and not wanting to let such knowledge unduly influence my future work.
You have exactly one week–seven days–to read and evaluate all of the stories in the GiantJuly19 flash fiction size fantasy contest. Be sure to leave feedback–however brief–on all of the stories.
Tempus fugit, people!
In celebration of Vore Day, I added one page to Original Stories by Olo:
This is my first true vore story, and it’s also my first story with a female protagonist. There’s a male pred, a female pred, some male prey, some female prey.
Dedicated to everyone who helps someone else try something new.

The stories submitted for the GiantJuly19 flash fiction size fantasy contest are now available for viewing. One of them is by me! You have until August 26 to read them all and evaluate them.
The first draft of my entry for the GiantJuly19 flash fiction contest is complete. This time I deliberately left the pages unnumbered so I would be (relatively) less mindful of my length. Came in at 2435 words. That’s more than trimming an unnecessary word here and there; that’s real meat that has to come out.
I always kept in the back of my head the option to publish a “Director’s Cut” once the contest results have been announced, but now I’m wondering if that doesn’t cheapen the contest entry somehow. The editing should be more-or-less organic, which requires me to care deeply about the 2k-word version. It should be something worthy of the contest evaluators’ time. More people will read the contest version than my precious puffed-up darling, after all.
Anyway, time to get cutting.
