Chapter 1: Chapter 1
I know you'll probably never see this, and it seems like you don't usually respond to reviews anyway so I'll certainly never know if you saw this, but I just have to say that I really loved this story......until the ending. Firstly, from a fetishistic standpoint, I found it to be a massive turn-off when Gloria was suddenly the one being tortured (and partially by a male giant, no less, without the Giant tag or size roles to warn of this- IMO the Couples tag really wasn't enough of a warning by itself), and from a plot standpoint, it just didn't seem to fit with the rest of the story. Yes, in theory it would be cathartic to watch her go through all that, but with this being more of a fetishistic story where some people might 'like' Gloria, for lack of a better word (what I mean is, with this being a violent giantess story, a lot of readers want the giantess to remain dominant and aren't really interested in seeing her receive comeuppance), as opposed to more of a plot-based tale where most people would actually root against the villain, that just didn't really mesh well with the rest of the story: to me, it seemed like a failed attempt to shoehorn in a happy ending just for the sake of having one, when it felt like one simply didn't belong there. Now, I'm not saying that having a happy ending in a violent giantess story is necessarily a bad thing, but in this case I don't think one should have happened-at least, not at that point in the story. On top of that, the execution just felt off, with several important plot elements appearing suddenly and making little sense (1. It's a little too convenient that Gloria's power just happens to come from such an easily accessible source, 2. There was really no reason for Gloria to spare Sarah, and plenty of reasons NOT to, and 3. If all it took to shrink people was a spell, Gloria could've easily shrunken both the protagonists even when she herself was tiny, especially when it's shown that she doesn't actually need the book itself to do so). I know that I'm asking for a lot from a fetish writer as far as "plot holes" and that goes, while simultaneously essentially saying that fetish stories don't always need a ton of plot, but this just bothered me to the point where I felt the need to say something about it.
I don't want to leave a star rating, as 1. A decent amount of my disapproval of the ending stems from my personal tastes (which I can't really judge you or anyone else on), and 2. I don't want to taint the story's image for new readers, but I'd give it about 7/10 overall........which, again, really sucks to say when I enjoyed most of it so much.
Well thanks for leaving a review. I know not everyone likes happy endings and not everyone likes bad endings. I wanted to mix it up a little since I did a couple of 'bad ending' stories before hand. I'm glade you liked the story up till the end.
