I remember seeing a Web site a couple years ago that explored user-submitted stories where aliens find humans OP, strange, insane, etc., etc. Now I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know what I'm referring to? I remember one story being about how humans are just talking meat.

    Can you define "Op"? Is that O.P. as in "overpowered"?

    I dont know the site, but I believe there is a /reddit page? Maybe called Humans are Space Orcs? I listen to a channel on YouTube where a guys reads lots of the stories from pages like you describe. The channel name is "NetNarrator" Here is a link to one of the stories the guy is narrating. youtube.com/watch?v=BAM6KjIFbmE

I believe the site your looking for is: reddit.com/r/HFY

We're a writing focused subreddit welcoming all media exhibiting the awesome potential of humanity, known as HFY or "Humanity, Fuck Yeah!" We welcome sci-fi, fantasy, and all other stories with a focus on humans being awesome!

It is a place would be authors post space/alien/Sci-Fi types stories where the humans usually(?) come out on the winning side of alien encounters of all types. (Diplomatic, Military, Trade, etc.)

Many stories are told from the alien point of view, usually indicating that the aliens had no idea the humans were that good/smart/tenacious/etc.

Most of the stories are short, (Though some are posted as a chapter a post, so ARE book length stories when combined) The quality of the short stories is quite good, Up to the quality of professionals in many instances, and very entertaining.

There are several channels on YouTube where the short stories are narrated by the channel creator (most 10-20 minutes long)

One popular one I listen to is NetNarrator. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClXev0oQLuZapY_Jc_kKKTg

I don't browse reddit.com much so there maybe other story posting channels.
