Whump Challenge: Day 9
How would you explain whump to someone who doesn’t know what it is?:
Whump is the enjoyment of pain. Fictional or non-fictional. Aside from that, it’s whatever you want it to be. You may like physical whump but not emotional. Maybe vice versa. Maybe you’d rather watch instead of read. Maybe it’s the other way around. There may be parts of it that you do and don’t like.
I say “it’s whatever you want it to be”, because, at the end of the day; it’s whatever you like. It’s personal. Customizable.
My bottom line: There’s no “real” definition for whump, because it changes with every living soul who likes it.
