It's been 4 years since I've posted anything on my page. It's not that I haven't been doing anything, I've still been writing Olympic Dames and related materials but I haven't done anything here for this page of my own here. Still though, from time to time I get asked if there's going to be any more Charlie stories.
Short answer, no.
Longer answer...Charlie came into existence as a character because I can not simply have an idea for a picture without having context or forming context afterwards. She was inspired by a commercial I saw for bank account/credit card fraud security. A pregnant woman is walking down a sidewalk, she bumps into someone. Apologies are exchanged and when she starts walking away she realizes she's not pregnant.
So I thought that would be interesting for a picture and asked Kaileighblue (artist of Olympic Dames if you don't know who that is.) She drew the idea, a girl stealing pregnancy from a couple of pregnant women and she put the thief in a stereotypical thief outfit (black sweater and pants, black wool cap). I thought it was funny because it was such a non subtle outfit and she off handily said that in her head the hat was magic and let her do it. The idea clicked in my head so I came up with a backstory and wrote a couple of stories about it. I decided to share them with the public because why not.
A lot of people said they liked them. A lot of people also have said how I can 'improve' them. Mpreg, breast expansion, labor, hyper-expansion and just a lot of other things that I'm not personally in to. People wanted to introduce their own characters, cross it with some other story, one guy copied the idea and made his own stories using the same seed but taking it in his preferences direction. For that and many other reasons, I've lost interest in making any more. I have an outline of how the series ends, but I don't see any point in bothering because there isn't any point. I know how the story ends and no one else seems to really want the things I want.
This isn't meant as an insult to others, or that I'm mad or disappointed or anything like that, its just that I don't see a point in bothering to tell a story that is considered too vanilla or whatever for others to be interested. Everybody's tastes are different and that's fine, but if my tastes aren't what the majority of the pregnancy related community wants, and all that people can say is that 'your stories are great but here's how you can make them better' then why not just let someone else do that with own character and setting?
If you have have ideas I encourage you to write them. However, make them your own work. I know fanfiction is very popular but I've personally never tried that because it seemed to me to be paradoxical to take something you say your a fan of and then change it to something completely different. There are...thousands? Hundreds? Tens of thousands? I'm not sure but more than a few people into pregnancy related fetish and everyone seems to have their own likes and dislikes so produce your work. You're likely to find many people who will enjoy it and you're likely to also find people who will want you to change it to fit their tastes. That's up to you as the producer of those works to decide what you want to do. For me, I write what I like. I uploaded to share and for the fun of it. When it stops being fun, I don't see a point to it. I'm also told, only half jokingly I fear, that it doesn't matter because people don't actually read the story, just skim for the good bits or look for art attached to it. Yeah, I kind of feel that is a bit true.
Well, enough wallowing in my own self deprecation, I got 'important things' (video games) to do so later. I'm still writing Olympic Dames, so this isn't good bye or anything, just to clarify.
