So I've been noticing the vent! Posts and vent topics. This is not a VENT topic. We have enough of those and they are doing very well thank you very much. An advice post is more "agony aunt" than one shot rant. It is for people who have found themselves at a minor (or major) life juncture. They've thought it through and said to themselves "I need a fresh perspective!"

I will start with my own.

About 5 years ago I did a lot of work for a forum. Since which time the forum has moved on. New writers have appeared. It's all good. Thing is I'm a horror writer and many of the people currently inundating the forum are erotic fiction. I can do erotic fiction but I have the urge to limp dick them all with something truly horrifying.

Question is should I do so or just let them all happily porn? The medium and story line is an open one. But to be honest, I'm a dark mirror I could really ruin the good f**k vibe. I'm talking Cthulhu walking in on a shag level of absolutely ruining the moment.

I am conflicted, half of me is very hippy, don't ruin the love. The other half of me is more NO this needs to be balanced with terror!

This made me guffaw out loud.  For that reason alone I say you must do it.

I'll make then read 3 chapters of abomination before they get anywhere near any hope.
They will be atrocity nasty. Revulsion nasty. For to find true hope one must first go through hell.

I wish to test the readership with things they don't want to read.

Well, as an occasional panderer of titillating erotica, well alright, feeelthy pr0n, I would say go for broke.

Lovecraftian lovecraft sounds like an intriguing sub-genre.



And do drop us a link, please - for the purposes of literary appreciation, of course.

Being somewhat evil-minded,  I would suggest a Shub-Niggurrath tie-in. Stress the "goat" bit.  Let them start thinking Classical Pan imagery, along with fauns and satyrs, and. of course the attendant dryads, naiads and fae (Oh My!) .

THEN, hit them with a bit of Outer Darkness. Remind them of the origin of the term "Panic Fear".

Just tell people it's horror. Let the readers decide if it interests them or not.

Go for it. It can't any worse (or more disturbing) than some of the stuff that's appeared on fan-fic websites (some of the people who write that sh*t are MESSED UP, and that's by my standards!), and of course there's more than enough porn on the internet and bad erotica being printed without more people adding to the glut, but just to be on the safe side, label it as horror and let them decide if they're interested or not.

Maybe you could use it as chance to exggerate their sexual behaviour  by mimicing their own style to horrific / ridiculous levels with a meaingful twist i.e.indirectly by doing something as leftfield as sex is to horror without being cliched and obvious ,  but as a sort of parable / theme so it made them think  ?

Clym, old chap, I would say f$¢₭ing-well go for it, and provide no labelling beyond the minimum required by the site.

Sex? Evil? Pan, satyrs and fauns? Shub Niggurath? Slut demons?

Perhaps a succubus...  Sure! I've had a couple of them hanging around here lately...

shrub niggurath? a horticultural tie-in. You can lead demon whores to culture, but you can't make 'em... something...

Horror and porn mixed up? Now that's a stereotype that's usually, for a reason, seen as a hallmark of poor quality horror, especially in slasher franchises where everyone is already thoroughly sick of watching the same villain coming back over and over in increasingly silly ways, whilst the cast are busy being inappropriate with each other, too much so to suffer from synaptic discharges; such that now only the most hard-core keep coming back for the porn and to watch the faux-teens getting butchered in new, creative, and occasionally funny but mostly stupidly corny ways.

Best to just write horror, and see if anyone wants to read it; or leave and find somewhere else where horror is more appreciated than the constant stream of juvenile porn.

You're swimmin' with your girl
Out on lovers' lake
And the wind blows cold
It chills your bones
But you're still on the lake
That's a bad mistake
But the moon was full
And you had a chance
To be all alone
But you're not alone
This is your last dance
And your last romance

-Alice Cooper
