Quoting Mecha-Lenin, reply 13Make all of the characters vampires, and you got yourself a publisher.
I hear soft porns are also making a comeback...
True, mostly BDSM. Like in that pop novel.
Which gives me story idea:
Ruthless Vasari slave lord, tormented by nightmares of premature awakening in his cloning chamber as a mildly developed fetus, finds himself inexplainably attracted to enslaved female human nano-tech expert working on upgrading unimpressive offensive abilities of Rankulas class capital ship. Existential fear - the source of his terrible nightmares, and self-contempt caused by irrepresible sexual urges towards female of inferior species slowly drive him into insanity. Vasari, broken down and helpless, as if accepting his dark desires would let him see through absurdity of existence, finally succumbs to his urge of being enslaved by a puny human female...
Rest is weird porn.
Now gimme my Nobel prize.
PS: Ironclad, if you are interested in expanding this story idea into a novel just PM me. I'm open to any reasonable proposals.
