Early Bird Sneak Peek: “Virus”!

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, albeit in a slightly complicated fashion due to Simon’s well-deserved vacation–“Not Listening”, teased previously as an Early Bird story, has already been submitted to the EMCSA for publication when Simon returns, and to Literotica for publication this weekend. But the Early Bird patrons will be getting “Virus”! (MC)

This is more of a study than a story, a case study of a memetic virus as it progresses through its colonization of a human host. Perhaps it’s overtaken you as well, whether you realize it or not. Here’s a taste:

This initial stage of the infection played itself out over three to four weeks. Although the host’s initial defenses restricted the virus to activation during periods of solitude, usually when the host’s resistance was low due to circadian rhythms affecting its biological processes, the virus gradually gained more dominance as the attack on the frontal lobe progressed. As the virus hijacked more and more of the memory process, the host found itself recalling the viral structure more and more often, even in situations where it was trying to bring to mind another association. The host assumed this to be a natural flaw in its mental processes, little realizing that it was having difficulty because the virus was subsuming other memories to make more room for its replication.

The first sign that the virus had reached a critical stage in its colonization of the host’s brain came when the host was in a diurnal social situation and felt an irresistible, limbic compulsion to simulate reproduction. The host had a number of learned behaviors in this situation, all of which strongly associated reproducing in its current environment with danger and released appropriate ‘fear’ hormones at the idea. (Although the danger was abstract and complex, the emotional response associated with it was similar to that of predation.) The host recognized clearly and directly that this was a time to engage in survival activities (again, complex and abstract ones related to acquiring a medium of exchange for food and shelter, but still survival activities), not reproduction.

But the virus was now stronger than the host’s learned behaviors, and able to manipulate the limbic system directly. It overwhelmed the host with repeated triggering of the visual cortex, activating itself until the host could no longer receive input from the optic nerve. The host only received information from the virus, not from the outside world, and the portions of the frontal lobe that held an understanding of the threat posed by reproduction in this environment were simply drowned out by the intense parasympathetic arousal response. Unable to resist this constant stream of sexual desire, the host found a private place (a bodily waste receptacle in the building the host was occupying) and stimulated itself to orgasm multiple times.

Hope you enjoy it!
