Due to circumstances partly under my control, I'm now a writer on Ed Kline's NSFW science fiction webcomic Nightshade the Merry Widow
, and so here I am trying to drum up a bit of interest for it. You can find full details about the story on All The Tropes Wiki under its previous title Dreamwalk Journal
, but here's the short version:
Cyeatea (say-TAH) is a small planet with a huge, lush, three-dimensional forest, home to numerous species of intelligent beings resembling hybrids of bipedal mammals and insects or spiders. These beings practise a form of symbiotic predation involving the capture, sexual stimulation, partial feeding upon, and release of prey. No Cyeatean ever deliberately harms or kills another. The origins of this world and its society are shrouded in myth, but strange, legendary beings called Oomans are thought to have played a part.
TVTropes doesn't have an entry for the comic because some admin got it into their noddle that it was just porn, but the point is it's not just wall-to-wall anthro bug sex. There's a lot
more depth to the story than that, and it features Ed's stunning CG artwork and (before I started working on it) brilliant writing.
So anyway, please check it out. We'd love to hear your comments and criticisms. The current (Jan 2016) scene takes place in a classroom where a spider instructor is teaching a class of young honeybees what being preyed on is like, with a honeybee teacher as the subject. Meanwhile a couple of visiting Earthwomen watch with interest and arousal.
