MST3K vs Hypnosis: Gamera vs Zigra

August 21, 2016

(This post has been brought to you by the efforts of my 40 startlingly stellar Patrons! Visit my Patreon page to learn how to become one of them.)

No, that’s not the double-bill for tonight’s events; believe it or not, the B-grade Japanese monster movie series about the giant fire-breathing turtle who flew by pulling his limbs into his shell and turning the holes into jet propulsion vents actually took a pretty big detour into hypnosis somewhere around the seventh film in the venerable monster series. (As a general rule, by Film #7 in any series, they tend to be a bit desperate for ideas.)

In this particular case, the titular villain, Zigra, doesn’t actually appear until the back half of the movie. It spends most of the first half in consultation with its spokeswoman, a bikini-wearing character who delivers most of the exposition on its behalf. She has a passionate hatred for the human race (because we pollute the oceans and kill fish…there’s a weird, half-baked environmental message in there) and she has the ability to gaze into people’s eyes and zap them with red twinkling lights. Folks so zapped become automatons, more or less mindless but capable of following simple instructions.

Yes, I know, it sounds like the best movie ever. And if you’re a bumbling-Japanese-scientist-sexual, it probably is. But unfortunately, most of the scenes involve her  hypnotizing bumbling Japanese scientists, so the rest of us are kind of left out in the cold just a bit. (She also spends some time chasing small children around, because late-period Gamera movie, but I’m hoping nobody finds that sexy.) Plus, there are way too few scenes of her hypnotizing men and way too many scenes of hotel managers arguing with zookeepers over fish for this to really count as a major sexytimes production.

Although I will give it some credit–the mid-movie twist is that she, herself, is a victim of Zigra’s hypnosis, having been brainwashed into becoming its avatar/representative to humanity. The same technique that frees people from her control works on her. (Steven Moffat later used this to brilliant effect in Doctor Who.) But at that point the hypnosis disappears from the film entirely, so it’s very much a lose/lose scenario.

I’d say you could repurpose it for brainwashing mash-up videos, but that’s about it. Funny episode, though!

Early Bird Sneak Peek: “Fix You”!

August 18, 2016

Hi all! It’s time for another Early Bird Sneak Peek, where I share a glimpse at the story my lucky Early Bird patrons will be enjoying next Saturday thanks to their pledges at my Patreon page! Of course, if you’re not an Early Bird patron, you’ll still get a story next week–“Keeper of the Flame”, teased as last week’s Early Bird story, has already been submitted to the EMCSA. But the Early Bird patrons will be getting “Fix You”! (MC MF MD)

Jane’s having a recurrence of her anxiety disorder. She’s feeling uncertain of her place in the scheme of things, uncomfortable with who she is and what she’s doing, and she needs to talk about her anxiety. Luckily, Doctor Bishop is always there for her. Always.

Here’s a taste:

“So what can I do for you?” he asked, breaking into her train of thought. “We don’t have a session scheduled, but I’ve got a little free time at the moment if you need to talk.”

Jane shifted nervously. “I, I mean, it’s probably nothing, but I just figured…I mean, if you don’t mind working on a Saturday, I just…” She took a deep breath, trying to center her thoughts. “I just don’t feel right, you know? Like the world doesn’t make sense to me anymore. I thought maybe you could fix me up.”

Doctor Bishop chuckled, gesturing to the recliner by his desk. “Now, Jane, we’ve talked about this.” His voice felt so calming that Jane almost forgot she’d ever had any anxiety at all. “These sessions aren’t about trying to ‘fix you’, they’re about finding ways to shake off negative patterns of thought and behavior and steer you towards positive ones. Nobody who walks through my door is ‘broken’,” he said, gesturing to the door opposite the one Jane entered through, “they just need a little help finding their best self. That’s what you want, isn’t it?”

Hope you enjoy it!

Liner Notes for July 2016

August 14, 2016

(This post has been brought to you by the efforts of my 40 practically perfect Patrons! Visit my Patreon page to learn how to become one of them.)

It’s technically well into August at this point, so I’m sure you know what that means–it’s time to look at the July stories and try to figure out what went into turning them from vague ideas into functioning pieces of smut! This was a heavy month due to Simon’s well-deserved break at the end of June, so let’s get started.

Girl Crush: This was an accidental addition into the Girls(tm) canon–I was thinking about how the Girls have been expanding their influence, person by person, and it occurred to me to wonder how they get at people who are already a couple. And that led me to the idea of a couple where one person gets a Girl and the other person views it as emotional infidelity, which led me to think about the song “Girl Crush” (which, for those of you who’ve not heard it, is about a woman developing a crush on the girlfriend of the subject of her affections solely because she wishes she could be her), and…yeah. It clicked remarkably quickly after that.

Caught in a Trap: This was by request from PearlQueenPosts, from Tumblr, who asked for a story that featured pearl earrings and used not just the title but the lyrics from an ELO song as inspiration. I came up with the rough idea very early on, but a lot of the details came out of trying to figure out why the controller would go to so much trouble to get this specific woman (she must have skills that the controller wants) and why she couldn’t just go out and get her. I think that it’s important to spend time hashing out logical reasons for your plot more often than not; sure, it’s smut, but I think if everyone is just acting as plot puppets already, a lot of the heat of them being controlled is lost.

Doll: This is one of my periodic “induction” pieces, and serves as an induction if you know someone who’s into dollification and wants to go under for you. A lot of the imagery at the beginning came out of my real life issues at the time–my day job is seasonal, and summer is the busy season. Having to write on top of overtime and family obligations sometimes leaves me pretty wiped, so when I had to get this one ready, it was easy to imagine someone telling me that I looked like crap and needed a brain-break. (I’m not so much into being a doll, but one of the weird things about writing fetish porn is you pick up a little bit of sympathetic kink on a variety of subjects. Probably why I never write incest or scat.)

Trust In Me: This song is, of course, kind of a motherlode of EMC fetishism for a lot of people. As a result, for a long time, I never even thought of writing a story using it–what could I do that was going to top the formative hypnosis image of 80% of the people in the community? Then it occurred to me that a cunning hypnotist might use that in and of itself as an induction, and I got the idea of someone using physical control of the other person’s body as an induction technique, and the rest of the story clicked into place from there. About the only thing that’s even slightly worth talking about is that once again, I tried to put a little representation in there; I’m not going to break my arm patting myself on the back, but I hope that this helps people of color see themselves in the kink community.

Uniform: One of my “oh god oh god all the ideas in my idea file sound terrible and I need to stare at song titles and brainstorm until something pops into my head” stories. (There are more of these than I care to admit.) In this case, as with a lot of single-word titles, the inspiration came from considering the multiple meanings of a word and allowing the literal meaning to play off of the subtextual meaning. So Marcelline (yeah, I know) gradually transforms from being a very individual individual to a facelessly-conforming drone over the course of putting on her uniform. (Research for this involved lots of reading about latex fetishwear. Oh, the things I do for you.)

That’s all for now–join me next week for another blog entry, and next month for another Liner Notes!

Early Bird Sneak Peek: “Keeper of the Flame”!

August 11, 2016

Hi all! It’s time for another Early Bird Sneak Peek, where I share a glimpse at the story my lucky Early Bird patrons will be enjoying next Saturday thanks to their pledges at my Patreon page! Of course, if you’re not an Early Bird patron, you’ll still get a story next week–“Pussy Control”, teased as last week’s Early Bird story, has already been submitted to the EMCSA. But the Early Bird patrons will be getting “Keeper of the Flame”! (MC MF FD)

After having a few too many to drink and getting lost in a strange neighborhood, Tomas happens upon a Good Samaritan named Isra. But Isra, it seems, has a secret destiny…one that Tomas will play a large part in.

Here’s a taste:

The woman left the room and came back a few minutes later, that same welcoming smile still on her face. “There,” she said. “That’s all settled. Your cab is on its way, although I should warn you from long experience that it takes a while for them to make it out this way. Still, I hope I’m an agreeable enough person to pass the time with.” She sat down on the chair opposite him and reached out to shake his hand. “My name is Isra.”

“Tomas,” he said, surprised at the strength of her grip. “I’m sorry to be such a bother. I asked the taxi to drop me off, but I wasn’t where I thought I was, and…” He trailed off again, unable to find himself at ease in the stranger’s house no matter how welcoming she was.

“It’s no bother at all!” she said, sitting back in her chair. “I like to think of it as destiny, myself. Here I was, unable to sleep, and here you were, out on your own at night in a neighborhood that’s…well, let’s just say it’s seen better days. Who knows what might have happened if I hadn’t been the one with my light on?”

Hope you enjoy it!

Happy Birthday to Me!

August 8, 2016

(This post has been brought to you by the efforts of my 39 kind and considerate Patrons! Visit my Patreon page to learn how to become one of them.)

This will probably be a short post because I’m afraid I’m a bit too itchy to fully concentrate–yes, I had a birthday today, and yes, the festivities did involve a bit of outdoors time, and yes, there were more mosquitoes out there than I care to count and I was bitten all over. But the point is, this post is written to commemorate the very tail-end of my birthday!

I’m sure folks have guessed that, given the fact that I wrote my first porn back in 2000, I’m not exactly young. But I’m not ready to call myself old (heck, I still haven’t hit the level cap in City of Heroes yet), and I do think that smut plays a big part in that. Having an active sexual imagination is, I feel, one of the keys to feeling younger than you are; sex is a vital and energetic part of life, and keeping it close to you is a revitalizing and energizing thing. (When kept in balance, of course; I wouldn’t recommend obsessing about sex every waking moment, especially if you’re an airline pilot or an EMT.)

But I think that if you can find that spark of passion in your life, you’re never really old no matter what the calendar says.

Early Bird Sneak Peek: “Pussy Control”!

August 4, 2016

Hi all! It’s time for another Early Bird Sneak Peek, where I share a glimpse at the story my lucky Early Bird patrons will be enjoying next Saturday thanks to their pledges at my Patreon page! Of course, if you’re not an Early Bird patron, you’ll still get a story next week–“Breathe It In”, teased as last week’s Early Bird story, has already been submitted to the EMCSA. But the Early Bird patrons will be getting “Pussy Control”! (MC MF MD)

Mallory’s decided to skip class and spend a little quality time reading an email that Daniel, her online Master, sent to her. Well, not to her exactly…but she’s allowed to read along with the real recipient.

Here’s a taste:

Not that Mallory necessarily had to do everything Daniel said, of course. She liked to pretend she did sometimes, because, well…she lay down on the bed and rubbed herself through the crotch of her panties, feeling the fabric cling to her labia. Because it made her pussy do this. But that didn’t mean he was really in control. She was always in control. When she submitted, it was just because she wanted to. That was all.

And right now, she wanted to submit. Daniel wasn’t online, of course–it was two o’clock in the morning in Brisbane. But Mallory had a little something he’d left her as a special reminder of just how hot he made her. She grabbed her phone and opened up her email, scrolling down to a header that said, ‘A Special Message Just For You And You Alone’. With slightly trembling fingers, she opened it.

Hello my pretty little pussy, she read.

Hope you enjoy it!

An Update on Tumbling, Patreonic Stuff

July 31, 2016

(This post has been brought to you by the efforts of my 37 really very very decent and kind Patrons! Visit my Patreon page to learn how to become one of them.)

Which is an appropriate way to start, because this is a post about changes to my Patreon and how they’re affecting my Tumblr page. Woo! Excitement!

Seriously, though I think this will be kind of exciting, at least to some people. I recently added a couple of new goals to my Patreon campaign, both of which are related to my Tumblr page. I’ve been using Tumblr as a combination creative outlet/advertising space, doing brief flash-fiction based around the pictures that cross my feed as and when I have time. This has been good in some ways–a lot of people have really loved my captions and have reblogged them over and over!

It’s also been bad in some ways, because it’s just one more thing that I feel like I have to do, and like everyone who tries to make money by doing something creative, you start feeling guilty any time you do something creative that’s not helping you financially because that’s time and energy you should be spending on the stuff that helps support you and your family and you can’t afford to just have fun writing anymore and–

**tamps down anxiety attack**

(Yes, it’s not just you that feels that way. It’s normal to feel a little overwhelmed by the demands of self-starting as a writer, especially when you’re publishing your own work. Don’t feel bad, you’re not alone.)

The point is, I came up with a way to make everyone…at least theoretically…happy. I’ve added a new milestone–two, actually–to my Patreon campaign. At $100 a week (total), I’m going to guarantee seven caption stories a week as well. That means that a) until I hit that milestone, I can feel less guilty about skipping a few days here and there, because if people want them daily they can put their money where their mouth is, and b) once I do hit that milestone, I can feel less guilty about doing them because they’re part of the draw that people pay money for and they’re no longer “just” creative, but a responsible part of my writing career as well.

(A responsible part of my writing career about people having kinky sex. Just so we’re clear that it’s the career, not the writing, that’s responsible.)

So, if you haven’t visited my Patreon page in a while, feel free to stop by and look at the new milestones (there’s a second one, as mentioned, which will double the number of daily captions). I hope it will make you want to contribute, because I like to think that my writing is worth something to people. If not, hey. I’ll keep trying to think of cool incentives for you.

Early Bird Sneak Peek: “Breathe It In”!

July 28, 2016

Hi all! It’s time for another Early Bird Sneak Peek, where I share a glimpse at the story my lucky Early Bird patrons will be enjoying next Saturday thanks to their pledges at my Patreon page! Of course, if you’re not an Early Bird patron, you’ll still get a story next week–“Uniform”, teased as last week’s Early Bird story, has already been submitted to the EMCSA.

Aimee has been a very naughty girl, teasing her girlfriend Joanna with all sorts of kinky fantasies and getting her all worked up. She’s being a brat on purpose, but the downside of teasing Joanna all day is that Joanna’s had all day to think about how to get her revenge.

Here’s a taste:

Aimee gulped a little, wondering if she might have gotten in over her head just a bit. “Thank you,” she said cautiously, waiting for the other shoe to drop, “but we haven’t even finished talking about where we want to have dinner, and–“

“Oh, there’s a lot of things we haven’t finished talking about,” Joanna said, doffing her coat and tossing it onto the easy chair. “For instance, we haven’t finished talking about this afternoon. And a few things that a very naughty girl said to me while I was at work and couldn’t properly respond.”

“Oh, that?” Aimee felt her grip on the rose tighten, suddenly very grateful that the stem had no thorns. “I thought you might have forgotten about that already.”

Joanna smiled a dangerous smile and sat down in the chair. “Did you really? And which particular part did you think that I might have forgotten? The part where you texted me and said you hadn’t even gotten dressed yet? Or perhaps the bit where you said you were, and I quote, ‘bored and hazy as fuck’ and teasing yourself through your panties?”

Hope you enjoy it!

Mind Control in “Ghostbusters”

July 25, 2016

(This post has been brought to you by the efforts of my 36 magical Patrons! Visit my Patreon page to learn how to become one of them.)

As you may have heard, there’s a new ‘Ghostbusters’ movie out, which has a whole set of controversies I’m not touching right now because a) I’m sure you can already guess my feelings on using the inevitable Hollywood reboot of a property as an opportunity to include more representation from groups traditionally marginalized by studio films, and b) I don’t think there’s really any reaching anyone who’s complaining about this movie, either because they’ve genuinely convinced themselves there’s nothing sexist about disliking it or because they’re unrepentantly misogynist to a degree where they wouldn’t listen to me anyway. I tilt at windmills, but not on a weekly basis.

But I have seen it, I did enjoy it, and hey presto, there’s some mind control in it! And, unsurprisingly in a movie with four female leads and a male character who revels in being eye candy (Chris Hemsworth is hilarious and sweet all at the same time as dim-but-cute receptionist Kevin), the mind control in this mostly involves controlled men.

There is a scene that does involve a mind-controlled woman, and it may in fact trip certain fetish triggers–the villain of the film, Rowan, is a man with some deep-rooted insecurities who looks forward to using his supernatural power to lord it over others. As a result, when he uses those powers to (I’d say spoilers, but this is in the trailers) take over Melissa McCarthy’s Abby, there’s a quiet undertone there of Rowan being able to finally make a woman do everything he wants her to. It’s brief, more like an echo than a plot point, but the scene where she’s taken over does have a certain quality that has probably been expanded out into fanfic by someone.

But the scenes with Kevin as Rowan’s victim/meat puppet are more prominent, longer, and while there’s no real homosexual subtext to them (Rowan is more interested in enjoying being a handsome and powerful “alpha” than he is in thinking about the idea that reveling in another guy’s physicality might be a little bit less than straight) there’s definitely something there for people who want to see brainwashed guys and don’t get their chance very often because male gaze. Chris Hemsworth is, let’s all admit it, pretty damn near perfect, and while he is “possessed” instead of “mindless”, there’s definitely something there that anyone who is into the idea of men acting under someone else’s control can watch in the theater and fantasize about later.

Add to that one scene (which is greatly elaborated on in the credits) where Rowan in Kevin’s body decides to display his supernatural power by imposing it on the collective wills of a group of soldiers sent to stop him, and you’ve certainly got a little something something for those of us who have a fetish that peeks its way into the mainstream time and time again. I don’t know that the movie is worth seeing for that alone, but I will say it’s worth seeing for Kate McKinnon alone and you get all this as a fun extra if you’re looking for brainwashed beefcake.

And who knows, maybe some of you are.

Early Bird Sneak Peek: “Uniform”!

July 21, 2016

Hi all! It’s time for another Early Bird Sneak Peek, where I share a glimpse at the story my lucky Early Bird patrons will be enjoying next Saturday thanks to their pledges at my Patreon page! Of course, if you’re not an Early Bird patron, you’ll still get a story next week–“Trust In Me”, teased as last week’s Early Bird story, has already been submitted to the EMCSA. But the Early Bird patrons will be getting “Uniform”! (MC MF MD)

Marceline’s a little late for work. That wouldn’t be a problem, if her work uniform wasn’t so elaborate. And so important. After all, every good girl needs to wear her uniform to do her job right…

Here’s a taste:

She burst into the locker room with her blouse already halfway unbuttoned, almost wishing she’d worn her Supergirl t-shirt underneath just for visual effect…but there was nobody to see it anyway. Marceline was even later than she realized, if the other girls were already dressed. Crap. She ran to her locker and tossed her backpack in, then set to pulling off her clothes with an unseemly haste.

She dumped the ball of clothing into the bottom of the locker on top of her backpack, then grabbed her uniform from where it hung on the plastic hanger. She took it over to one of the changing benches and laid it out–from this point on, there really wasn’t much Marceline could to do hurry. She’d just have to hope she wasn’t as far behind as she seemed.

Marceline grabbed a bottle of silicone lube from one of the changing benches and squirted a palmful into her open hand. She set down the bottle and smeared the lube over her other hand, then worked it up and down her arms until she had a thin, slick coating up to her shoulders. She wished one of the other girls was there to help–this part always went easier with someone else lubing her body–but it wasn’t the first time she’d done it solo.

Hope you enjoy it!
