Poll: Weird, Weird, Research

5 months ago

Time for another poll! As we all know, writing requires time, comittment, effort, and research.  But sometimes finding information for the sake of a story can take us to unholy and strange places.  Earlier today, I needed to find out if a snake would scream if lit on fire, for a scene in one of my stories.  So delving into the googles I found quite a few answers, the only definite one some random anecdote on a forum. 

What's the weirdest thing YOU have ever had to research for a story?

The price of socks in 1914 I think. I had zero information on prices on the dawn of ww1, and needed to know how much would a cabinetmaker earn. Took some random things like food, clothes etc and searched for data. Along with WWI-era english slang.

I remember searching for something weirder, alas I can't recall what exactly.

I'm writing a CYOA about bees so I ended up having to look up how queen bees are made.

Several hours of writing later my imagination got the better of me and I found myself typing a paragraph on a queen bee flying into an unsuspecting woman's vagina to deliver royal jelly... every night for 9 months.

I never thought super hero backstories would be so hard!

Not every super being can have a G rated spider bite like Spiderman can!

I mean...they can, you just chose to have something weird as fuck.  All it takes is one radioactive bee sting....not.....body cavity bee crawling.

Are the bees at least gonna abduct the child and use it as a pawn?

But a radioactive bee sting isn’t realistic, ya know? It needs to be as realistic as possible. But that can mean pretty weird. 

Poll: Weird, Weird, Research

There is nothing realistic about bees shoving jellies up coochie holes either.  Not sure how a radioactive bee sting or some shit is so far fetched to you though.

Poll: Weird, Weird, Research

Idk but it sounds more realistic. 

Poll: Weird, Weird, Research

no one that reads super hero stories cares about realism, you're just reaching for an excuse to have strange bee fetish story

Well, you did decide to argue in defense of it, but you might be on the verge of switching sides.

So join me, young one.

I actually found the story on another thread, and holy shit is it weird...

Yes, it sure is strange.

If there's anything I've learned from lurking on here and reading the popular stories is that a lot of readers enjoy the more messed up details of a story. While I don't plan on adding in anything too edgy like genocide or sexual assault I think a little spice here and there will keep people reading.

A bee crawling into a woman's vagina is sexual assault though, isn't it? So you already failed. It's also weird af.

Poll: Weird, Weird, Research

Depends on whether the woman consented

Poll: Weird, Weird, Research

No, she's asleep every time. She doesn't have any idea bees are even in her bedroom until the night she gives birth.

Poll: Weird, Weird, Research

Hmm, I guess it counts as sexual assault? I was going to say the woman can't feel it at all, but then I'm sure you'd bring up date drugs. So I'll have to lower that bar further.

But yeah, weird is what I'm going for.

See, a mutant with three genitals skull fucking people could be fine, but its not meant as some strange perverse fetish.  Adding insects going up genitals just seems strange, like there is no reason for it!

I wouldn't read this story like "oh yes, beeginas, how spicy"

I remember @Steve24833 spent a long time researching how various insects reproduce for his rat story. Then regaled us with stories of some of the more disgusting types and some truly vile sample rat/insect person sex scenes.

Somewhere in there he got his first ban from the IRC by tricking Axiom into clicking on a picture of an erect human penis covered with worms while she was at work.

Good times.

I'll have to think of the weirdest thing I ever looked up for a story. Most recent would have to be a bunch of searching I did on whether pig bladders could be used as primitive oxygen tanks.

Prophecy is actually one of my favorite story games on here just because you can have weird anal sex with an underage bug as a rat.

I'm disgusted, yet intrigued. Guess I'll have to read this one and pick up some bug facts.

The strangest research I have done for the benefit of my stories?

In order to realistically sketch out the merfolk race I use in my stories, I had to rearrange the human body in favor of adding gills and more amphibian-like features. To do this, I had to study a whole variety of organs, both human and non-. It actually got concerning when I took a double take; generally speaking, anyone with files and folders full of grotesque humanoid figures and organs would be considered insane.

On the bright side, I passed biology that year with an A average angel.

I can only hope this will lead you down the path of the mad scientist some day.

Oddly I don’t think I’ve ever had to research anything too strange.
