Personally, I've only ever written two weight gain stories, and that's because they were the only two story ideas I thought I could pull off with some actual artistic integrity. The first was quite long, and the second wasn't short, and not many people read them, probably because of that, but in the long run, I'd rather have a few people read a story than a mass audience looking for something to, if you will pardon my crudeness, touch themselves to. I've read quite a few weight gain stories over the years, and the ones that really stay with me are the most original ones. However, there are some stories that manage to be intriguing but also concise and focused solely on weight gain. What I specifically have in mind are those by "Admirer" in Dimensions' story archive. Anyway, back on topic... Although it is a rarity, I like stories that take place at some time in the past that casually include cultural and historical references. I would say that this is perhaps too touchy of a subject, but the only example I can think of right now is something about the Korean "comfort women" love slaves the Japanese kept during World War II. If I think of a better example I'll post it.
