Maggie's Fattening Story (2024)

Maggie's Fattening Story (Maggies fette Geschichte in German) is a weight gain webcomic by TheKoudelka published on DeviantArt. It has been in continuous production since 2001, with several hiatuses.

Maggie, a woman who's always had a lingering desire to get fat, is overjoyed to hear about the release of a new drug called Corpulex 7, which promises to solve all the health problems associated with obesity: heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and so on. Maggie immediately starts actively gaining weight, recruiting her friend Cidney to act as her gaining coach. A month and forty-five pounds later, Maggie goes to buy the drug, only to become distraught when she learns it costs $6,000 to buy. Cid buys it for her, allowing Maggie to pursue her gaining fantasies with reckless abandon. Cid begins getting fat herself, something that Maggie praises and encourages, and the two begin gaining weight together. Maggie's father is supportive of her weight gain, saying that he has a fat fetish and was disappointed that her mother lost weight after they first started dating.

Maggie eventually eats herself into near-immobility, and with Cid becoming increasingly obese, she brings on her friend Tanya to help take care of Maggie. while helping Maggie adjust to her new bedbound life, both women's weights begin to skyrocket. A particular source of stress for Maggie emerges, however, when her parents come to visit; her mother is very fatphobic and was always disdainful of her weight. Maggie's response is to make herself incredibly fat with the goal of shocking her mother, which she successfully accomplishes: her mother faints in horror at the sight of how large her daughter and friends have become. However, after a heart-to-heart, she forgives her daughter and says she'll support Maggie in her future gaining endeavors.

After Maggie becomes fully immobile, both Cid and Tanya begin getting increasingly competitive about their weights, and begin trying to prove that they're more gluttonous than each other. They both gain hundreds of pounds in the ensuing months from their constant gorging; while they eventually lose interest in the contest, they do both realize that they're now too fat to properly take care of Maggie. So, Tanya recruits a group of feeders who are more than eager to help take care of them. After a brief interlude explaining the origin of Corpulex and showcasing the fattest woman in the world, Maggie's parents (who have visibly put on some weight since their last appearance) visit Maggie at Cid's house. They find a veritable army of women in various stages of plumpness tending to Cid and Tanya, both of whom are now immobile.

The English translation of the comic was first uploaded to DeviantArt in 2005, and can be found here. The most recent page, #80, was uploaded in June of 2024.
