This is a side journal belonging to chaosphaere. It's mostly friends only. If you want to read my personal stuff, this is where it lives. If you got friended by chaosphaere in the last few days, that's because I'm moving a lot of my more general-interest blogging over there and would like to share with you.

"The Hungry Heart"
gmdreia

So, I'm doing this project I call "Bad Dates."

If you follow me on Facebook, then you've seen my sketches. It may end up being an old school zine, though one person suggested I offer it as a coloring book.

One of the things that will be in it is a little story I'm working on.

An illustrated story about someone with a hungry alien heart that the owner has to keep fed. It actually has to feed, or it will consume its host. It can take its meals bit by bit - a boyfriend or girlfriend fills the bill for a while. It will sleep placidly after a meal but eventually it needs to feed again. Eventually, it ends up just consuming the host’s boyfriends/girlfriends wholecloth.

Where most people have a relationship track record or “notches on the bedpost,” the owner of the hungry heart has a body count.

But what the owner really wants to meet is someone else who will understand, someone else with a hungry heart.

They meet them. At first, they feed together on the people in their environment and go on a bender of just eating everyone around them, with abandon. They scream their joy at finally feeling met, finally feeling understood.

Eventually they’re alone, though - with nothing left to feed on but each other - and they consume each other’s host, and both die in the process.

It doesn’t need a happy ending, because it’s a parable.
