What Kills A Story For You?

Recommended Posts

Oh, and this is a personal thing, but if there is a rape scene and the rapist is exonerated in any way, I'll likely not ever come near you as an author again. And I'll probably yell at people a lot IRL.

Probably the same as "cookie-cutter houses". They all look amazingly alike, or in the case of stories, if you've read one, you've read them all. Currently I'm really enjoying "City Slicker" and started reading but just quit one that was way too over the top with sadistic activities and public displays that it fails the reasonableness test others have mentioned. That noted, "City Slicker" does have an unreasonable universe, but the plot and the characters stay within that universe. In fact, it is the author's creation of this universe that makes the story so interesting!

Pretty much all that has been mentioned will kill off a story for me.

I am not a fan of having minors as the centre of a story (sexual or not), I think that it can show our community in a bad light; I do of course make exceptions when people talk about their own childhoods in a discussion for example.

Several things will kill a story for me. At the top of the list is poor spelling and bad grammar. Secondly is bad sentence structure; writing in incomplete sentences or thoughts. That's the mechanical not-to-dos. Story-wise, you need to build characters that the reader can relate to. The story has to be more than just about using diapers. Include other aspects of the person's life as well as other people--whether diaper lovers or not. Include other activities in the main character's life. Re-read what you have written and ask yourself if it would appeal to a wider audience than just yourself. (Write for the reader and not just

On a mechanical level, bad grammar and spelling ranks high. I'm sure I've missed out on an otherwise good story or two because it was nigh-on unreadable. I briefly beta'd for someone but had to cut it off because I started feeling less like I was offering suggestions and correcting errors and more like I was personally re-writing the story from scratch. Though, in their defense, last I saw they had improved on their own merit.

In the story itself: getting sexual. Or, more specifically, getting dirty and sexual. I can abide a sex scene or two, but the moment such a scene or a diaper change or similar starts talking about cocks and pussies, I check out.

Maybe I'm the only one, but I'm not into abuse. Total turn off. Yes, this means any one belittling another. I like nurturing relationships, but a total turn-off is the BDSM relationship. That includes spankings, public shaming...

What turns me off to a story:

I'm not a big fan of magic, and magical transformations. This is because in most stories the magic only exists to make littles. The way I find it works best is when the magic exists in a way the implies a larger world, and not just as a crutch to allow some Big to baby a little. It has to function to consistent rules that don't contradict each other for the convenience of plot.

Paragraphs, learn how to use them. Same goes for chapters.

Writing good dialogue is a difficult skill to learn. It can be frustrating to read, but I can take bad dialogue if its formatted well.

The Victorian Matron domme that is also common in crossdressing fantasies. She is really just a caricature that exists solely to satisfy the fantasies of the little/crossdresser. She is also a bitch. I have never in my life met a woman that acts like this.

I despise stories that are overly sexualized or involve entirely unrealistic BS (i.e some sexy single woman that just SO HAPPENS to have a fully stocked adult size nursery in her house? Who would have guessed..?!). Same goes for female violence/domination---this is not a thing 99% of the time in real life, so it gets exhausting and frankly, boring when it pops up in an enormous amount of ABDL stories.

Stories that involve 'slice of life' type stuff, with REALISM,

This one has been going on for a while and is an interesting and informative read for any one who writes, or plans to write B/DL fiction.

Sexual content, especially non-consensual.

And the protagonist coming to love and care for someone who has kidnapped them and done horrific kinky torture to them.

And the "they're secretly an ABDL, so they'd totally like being kidnapped and forced into diapers". I'd warrant that even most of the people who want to be 24/7 incontinent would be upset if they were kidnapped and forced to wear diapers. And not all ABDLs or people who like ABDL fics even want 24/7 incontinence at all. (I get turned on by ABDL fics, but I like the idea of
