Here be dragons

One of my oldest mind control fantasies involves a woman being MC'ed by a dragon. At first I imagined she'd bent sent to the dragon by her village: a sacrifice to keep it from attacking them (à la that old movie Dragonslayer), but instead it enslaves her and sends her back to take over the village. Later I thought she could be an adventuress who makes a deal with the villagers to kill the dragon, but the same thing happens in the end.

Either way, I'm nowhere close to being able to write that story yet, but it continues to percolate in my mind. I've always been fascinated by the thought of control by something terrifying and alien, like a dragon (or maybe a giant spider). The MC would have to very, very deep to make the victim love it; and that turns me on no end - even before I start thinking about the mechanics of sex with a dragon. ;)

With that in mind, here are a few pictures to stoke your own fantasies. The one above, as well as the first and third below, are by Julie Bell. The middle sketch is by Arantza.

Now three pics by Boris Vallejo. I've shown you the first one before, but it's so hilarious that I can't resist sharing it again. Ol' Boris was having great fun with the phallic symbolism on this one. He must have been laughing the whole time he was painting it.

All three of these artists - and many more - can be found on

Oh, and if MC-by-dragon turns you on as much as it does me, let me remind you of my previous post on the subject.

Stream of (sub)consciousness

Back when I was a teenager, I read Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions. I hardly remember anything about it now, not even the central plotline; but one bit has always stuck with me. There's a character in the book who's writing his own book and has everything planned out ahead of time. Then suddenly one of his characters surprises him, doing something he didn't anticipate (Hmm, or maybe one of Vonnegut's characters surprised him; like I said, I don't remember much about it anymore).

The reason this scene stuck with me is because it rang so true to my own experience. When I'm in the zone, my characters actually do write themselves. Sometimes they even dictate to me. For instance, the MCer in the story I'm working on now is wittier than I'll ever be, but his dialogue came naturally to me (Yes, it's a "him" this time - but the story's not yellow. I wouldn't dare!).

I also wrote most of the rough draft without fully understanding the MCer's methods. That's where the title of this post comes in. I go mostly on instinct, trusting my subconscious to make sense of things I don't consciously understand. Now, my MC'er in this story is pretty capricious, so I assumed he was going on instinct, too...until I slipped in a particular Easter egg. The MCer's subject is making a wild guess about his plans, but after I wrote the guess, I realized it was right! I'm still not sure if the MCer realizes what he's he's doing, though. He hasn't told me.

Anyway, more on all this when I publish the story and post my "Peek Beneath the Duct Tape." For now, I just want to marvel at the things my brain does when I'm not looking.

An appropriate entry for a post-rapture Sunday

I wonder what the old hellfire-and-brimstone crowd are thinking this morning, since they didn't get taken up into the skies to be with Jay-sus while the rest of us perished in agony. Maybe, just maybe, a few of them will realize we're all in the same boat. And maybe one or two of them will take a moment to reflect on this article about growing up gay and Christian.

In case you aren't familiar with the writer, he's a CNN anchor who just came out as gay (No, not Anderson Cooper. The other guy.) Here's a brief sample of his story, just to whet your appetite:
It's time for us, especially black people, to stop trying to pray the gay away and to get on our knees and start praying that the discrimination of gay people ends.

What we're doing to our young gay people now is child abuse. It's plain old bigotry and hatred. And if African-Americans don't know what that feels like in America, I don't know who does.
Amen, Don Lemon. Amen.

Let the brainwashing commence!

The theme of this entry should be pretty obvious, so let's just get right to the good stuff, shall we? ;-)

The pic at left came from Gwen Media, as do the middle and right-hand pictures just below. The left-hand one came from Hypnox.

I saved these and all the other pictures in this entry so long ago that I don't remember where I got all of them and don't know how many of them are still available. I'll do my best to point you in the right direction, though.

The next row comes from Latex by Anna (currently inactive), Fetish Live, and Kink Engineering.

Next up are pics from Captive Culture and Fetish Live again.

Lastly, something I've never been able to track to its source, then something that's disappeared into the void.

Vac beds are just so perfect for brainwashing, aren't they? ;-)

At right is Ulorin Vex, sporting the latest from kinky corset designer Bibian Blue. This appears to be part of the newest BB collection, which isn't available online yet as far as I can tell. But there are plenty of other goodies in their Model Mayhem gallery, including several featuring Masuimi Max. I know some of you out there kind of like her. ;-P

Things to know

You've probably gathered that I'm working on a new story, but I refuse to set a deadline for myself this time because doing that always makes me feel pressured. However, I will drop a few hints today that you might want to keep in mind for...whenever:
  • If you think you've spotted a Muse Easter egg, you're probably right.
  • A few Lady Gaga references were unavoidable, but I've kept them to a minimum.
  • The red is there for a reason.
  • The fact that I'm using dreams again is pure coincidence.
  • There is a red herring.

Fishy, fishy, in the nude

More from the amazing Kassandra Vizerskaya, this time with an oceanic theme (and a first picture that would make a fantastic MC story!).

I'm so happy to have discovered Eastern European artists like her and Jacek Yerka. Their work is entirely different from what I've grown up with, and yet it strikes a chord with me that most Western art doesn't.

I wish I could meet Vizerskaya in person. I'll bet she's a great conversationalist.

This is a scream. Literally.

I can't thank Sebiates enough for sharing this incredible gem with me. Enjoy. Ohhh, enjoy. };-D
