why was this added to the pool "Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Illusion" ?

It shouldn't have been (I think). I've removed it from the pool and sent a Dmail to the user.

Both are MS paint. Humans turned Pokemon. PMD. It's weird.

Awww man, I just read through all of these in 2 days... *existential dread setting in*

Hmm, very similar in style and content. And its emo dA rainbow-haired-Eevee OC main character would totally fit in here, along with the random NSFW bits.

Yeah, I'm sure whoever added it just made an innocent mistake ^_^

Actually there will be no NSFW bits in Victory Fire and you know what. I'm glad there isn't. Brings something fresh to the table. Something simple and clean. Not every good story needs porn.

Only on a site like this does such a point need to be made :-]

I'm kind of wondering if there are very many good stories out there that do integrate porn/erotica... there are reasons why authors tend to avoid the latter if they're really putting a lot of work into the story. (Needless to say, PMD:EoI is not an example of this.)

That's why, in my experience, stories usually tend to have either no porn, or they're all about the porn. Not much in between...

How about a beautiful story that while leaning towards "all about porn" it's silent and purely visual.
Or
What's the closest to being in between.

"All about porn" doesn't say anything about quality, just the focus. That first one ("Gift from the River God") is very nicely done... the shame is that it still gets shelved next to the Palcomix and Kabier/Jasonafex dreck, since porn overrides pretty much all other qualifiers.

That second one ("A Tale of Tails") is quite long, but I checked out the first several pages. The comments certainly speak highly of it, though it gets to NSFW territory suspiciously quickly. (I do appreciate that it seems to be treating transgender identity in a serious way).

The way I see it, a truly "in between" comic would have an even lighter touch. In the real world, sex is a part of life, and it's a big deal to most of us (relationships and all). But in terms of actual time, we spend like, what, <2% of our lives doing it?

In an "in between" comic, sex would be important, but it wouldn't be focused on so much more than anything else. Not necessarily that only 2% of the pages depict sex, but that its presence in the narrative feels no bigger than it is in most of our lives.

I don't know if there are any actual examples of this, however, because the practical reality is that even if a comic has only 2% explicit sex, that 2% is going to railroad it to the same place as comics with 99% sex. It's easier to drop that 2% to 0% (replace sex scene with a zoom into the fireplace, or whatever), so that the whole rest of the story doesn't end up in the porn ghetto.

By the way, I really appreciate these good-comic recommendations. That's always the way it is on the Internet... finding X is easy, finding good X is hard :-)
