General Chatter / Re: Monster Hunter based Sneezefic
« on: April 06, 2019, 01:28:44 AM »
Your excitement for this is infectious.  I've not played Monster Hunter, but maybe I should give it a go?

If anyone wants me to do something similar with male monster-human hybrids, then don't be afraid to ask x3

I'm indifferent, but variety is the spice of life ;)

And for those of you thinking-
"But Hyperrrrrrrr. You can't make a monster sexy or sneeze like a human!"

Heh, no, that honestly was not something I was thinking XD.  If a monster is depicted as fully sapient that's... basically all it takes IMO.  But anthro monsters are also excellent!

Alrek does it again!  Bravo!  Seems like this commissioning thing is working out well for all involved :3

To avoid the image downsize, maybe slap them non-publicly on imgur, and add the links here as an alternate source?  That way the originals can eventually make their way to the archive.

And for folks unfamiliar with Extreme Dinosaurs (like me) there's 4 clips and one full illness-focused episode over in the video archive:

[Disclaimer: Not an admin.]

It would be totally fine.  An anthro is an anthro no matter what creature it's based on.  And anthro is furry.

It would also be unambiguously fine to post content about a Monster Hunter creature or other monster, in non-anthro form, as long as it was depicted with approximately human-level intelligence (sapience).  That class of character is commonly called "feral".  And feral is furry.
(Most modern four-legged dragons fit here, for instance.)

A creature with clearly sub-human intelligence ("non-sapient") is more of a gray area.  But as long as nothing sapient is engaging sexually with the non-sapient, I wouldn't expect objections.

Also, in the particular case of Monster Hunter, there's already oodles of specific prior art placing those creatures in the furry fandom (at least when depicted as sapient).  Reference: [NSFW] [NSFW].

Haha, jeebus, tarotgal strikes again!

My weaknesses for both dragons and mess** are well documented, so I was pretty pumped to see this story come up.

Jameson truly is a dreadful adventurer, but he was a perfect fit for the light-hearted tone of the piece, and like UltimateChimera I really liked the sweet & wholesome conclusion.

I've got no general advice for the large/small creature dynamic, but I will point at:
Feeling as though we'd shared an intimacy that allowed me now to touch him, I reach out and lay my hand on his side.
He flinches at this and narrows his eyes a moment. Then he rises fully out from under the rest of the treasure. He stretches his wings out, one at a time. Then one of his wings curves and folds around me, like a sort of embrace, perhaps a thank you.
and say yes more of that please :3

Thanks for the cross-post; I probably should be paying closer attention to your blog!

(** And in particular "nasal incontinence" of the kind that was prominent here, though if you have a better term for that please let me know, since "incontinence" makes me think of other fetishes that are distinct turn-offs for me.)

Aah, that's a really cute and well-executed idle sneeze!

I recall playing and thoroughly enjoying the original PS1 games way back when.  I also recall once (entirely innocently, you understand) looking up on the internet whether any of Spyro's idle animations included a sneeze (not, as it turns out, on any of the PS1 games, which is definitely not a thing that I remember after all these years... that would be most unseemly!)

Poor writing has no detail.  Mediocre writing has too much.  Better writing expresses detail concisely.

The conciseness of technical writing is generally a good thing.  If you can make the same impact in fewer words, then you should.  That said, fiction needs to both convey fact *and* stir emotion.
This doesn't mean opening the detail floodgates, and certainly doesn't mean using lots of words, but rather borrowing elements of poetry.  Good writing knows when to gloss over something, when to insinuate, and when to linger.

... And writing sneezefic, you're going to spend a lot of time lingering on the SF-related detail!

I take it as given that you already know what kind of SF-related detail floats you boat and can write to that.

Assuming you're writing furry sneezefic in particular, I encourage you to take full advantage of the exotic anatomy at your disposal!  How does the tickle of an impending sneeze feel along a large snout?  The lip curls back... do we see sharp teeth?  A ridged ceiling of the mouth?  What shape are the nostrils?  How do they flare?  Where does the tell-tale drop of moisture pool?  Do they stifle into a wing?  An arm with fur?  (Does it tickle?)  Scales?  (Do they scratch?)  In the aftermath, do they make a canine shake of their head?  Hide their trunk?  Blow their nose?  (And does that pose logistical problems for a standard tissue or hanky?)  The possibilities are endless.

For "research" on this site, I'd recommend the works of Java and tarogal.

(Java goes by other names elsewhere, and I'd recommend all her writing.  tarogal is *the tarogal* from the early days of the online SF community.)

I always get ridiculously excited when I see that Alrek has posted new art.

Likewise.  And to hear that there's another commission in the works!  The last one was pretty stellar.

As always: thanks for sharing, Alrek!  :D

I did!  I've always loved Alrek's art, and it's really nice to see a detailed piece with finished line work.  I think it looks great; probably his best work from a technical standpoint.  Bravo!

Heh, my only exposure to SCP was the Antimemetics Division series of short stories, which I thought were pretty good, and would recommend.  I might go read a few others, now you've reminded me about it.

General Furry Stuff / Teratophilia
« on: September 04, 2018, 12:59:23 AM »

So I recently stumbled out from my pile of scotch bottles and DMT sachets long enough to make it to Tumblr, whereupon I learned something unexpected:

Folks have started adopting the term "Teratophilia" to mean "I fantasize about banging monsters".

Now, to be clear, I'm in full support of that sentiment.  Banging (sapient) monsters is my jam.  But I've always viewed this as one of the outer limbs of the Furry Syndrome, a particular expression of Feral, not its own classification.  If one wanted to be more specific, "monster fucker" was always available, and pleasingly self-deprecating.

So when did Teratophilia come to mean this?  The "original" definition is a paraphilia for "deformed or monstrous people".  This covers e.g. Elephantiasis, and might extend to, say, Frankenstein's Monster, but not to Deathclaws (as I've seen it used) nor to pretty boys who transform into ${something_else}.

Am I out of touch?  No, it's the neo-Teratophiles who are wrong!  The appropriation of a term for a different sort of paraphilia is clearly inappropriate!

What's going on here?

(I've a second rant in me about the popularity of "pretty boys who transform into ${something_else}" (and equivalently, monsters that spend their most of their time "glamored" as humans), versus honest-to-goodness Ferals and Monsters and Monstrous Humanoids, but that's a rant for a different day, and has more to do with personal tastes than the lofty ideals of taxonomy...)

Your sketch is very cute!

Is that the same character showing through on the other side of the paper there?  Do they have a name?

Obviously I'm speaking from a motivated position, but thank you for daring, and I definitely encourage you to keep it up ^^

But whether or not you do, Welcome To The Forum :D

My advice is to "deal with it".

It's certainly not "evil", but it is unacceptably uninhibited.  Don't.

If you're not close enough to just ask her to sometimes not take her antihistamines, then you'll have to keep hoping that she occasionally forgets and enjoy that when it happens.

Linode offers both $5/mo and $10/mo plans (and prohibits only child porn, non-consent, and bestiality, which they'd have to be really churlish to lump furry with), though admittedly the 25GB or storage on the $5 one would be a constraint.  Digitalocean probably has something similar.  But the real barrier there is likely the learning curve.

Malware scans are approximately worthless, and from the sounds of it Lunarpages' one produces loads of false positives.  It's not problem-solving, it's waving a divining rod.

Re HostGator, it's not immediately clear what their "cloud" offering is, but SMF is an old-style single-machine app, which makes me slightly anxious.  Though as long as the system presents (1) a single, shared MySQL database, and (2) a shared data directory, I think SMF should work.  It, uh, would be good to see if you can test it before buying.  They appear to have a 45-day money-back guarantee, and IIRC part of why HostGator were well-regarded back in the day was because they were really good at fulfilling that guarantee (and it was longer than most).

4GB should be plenty.

A malware scan?  I can't even comprehend what they think the relevance of malware is in the context of shared hosting -- either there's some hacked script that is abusing their systems in a way that will hurt their other customers and/or their reputation, or it's the site-runner's problem, not theirs.  Unless they claim you're /distributing/ malware.  But then your account would almost certainly be suspended already.

Anyway, you already know what my opinion of shared hosting is, compared to e.g. VPS.

But if you're stuck with shared hosting (please don't be) then HostGator is probably not a bad bet.  I seem to recall them having a fairly good name, and their Acceptable Use Policy mentions "porn" only to explicitly prohibit child porn.  Which, like, duh.  The clear in-between-the-lines meaning is that (US) legal porn is permitted.

As we say in the FOSS community: patches welcome...

Personally, I don't feel there's much difference between now and 5 years ago.  There was a bit of a rush when the site was new, and it has gradually cooled down since.

I think the "artists doing things these days" bit was very inartfully put, and I don't think I really get the sentiment.  Not every artist is Kenket (or whoever), but I've never felt the need to say "oh, SoAndSo, your art's not quite to my particular taste; no pressure, but if you want to get better at art, try being more like Kenket".

I know that's an inaccurately grim reading, and doesn't reflect what was actually meant.  But I do feel a lot more care could be taken here, and sometimes care means eliding statements that could be taken poorly, not merely couching them.  This thread is not very becoming.  :-/

As they used to say on the Blue Forum:


(Though, come to think of it, I don't think that expression has been in vogue for, like, years.  Hm.)

I like it as well, and am very happy to hear that you're happy to hear so, so I've said it again. ;)

I'm also fairly gender-blind with this stuff, and also find that colds are my favorite, so, you know... woo! etc.  And thank you, again, for sharing your work ~

... convert the forum's stories into text files for the media archive ...

What format are you looking for?  Like, /flat/ text, or Markdown, or...?

I'm not generally inclined towards BDSM; my sexuality seems to be coupled fairly firmly to peership.  But this is really well written, really compelling stuff, and I've found oodles here to like.

I must also mention how much I love playing with the "morphological variety" offered by furries / anthros, as you did here (most conspicuously in the porn mag paragraph).  I'm also fond of the occasional "animal tic" in these settings, as you had in a couple of places.

i.e.: I love your work.  This also goes for Understanding, which I think I failed to comment on.  Thank you very much for sharing these series, tarotgal!

(Also, I'm still geeking out that *the* tarotgal is here and writing furry-flavored sneeze smut XD )
