Re: Dream On

Chapter 5: Steady State I was recovering from post-coital exhausted happiness that evening, and too tired to really tweak the conditioning program, so I just set what I had to run before dozing off. As I’d internalized before, the conditioning regimens which the shadowy group had subjected Clair to ...

Re: Dream On

Chapter 4: Checkdsk and Recovery I had been so focused on my efforts and monitoring the progress via Clair’s behavior, that when she arrived back home one night and said she wanted to talk about my continued crashing at her house, it sorta blindsided me. I had to remind myself that although I had be...

Re: Dream On

Chapter 3: Bootstrapping I spent the night in her room that evening, on a side chair, working on a portable laptop to do the conditioning. Although I wasn’t the type of person who needed lots of ambient noise to work effectively, I didn’t need to be especially quiet either: I still had system access...

Re: Dream On

Chapter 2: Reboot “So what the hell do we do now?” We had come full circle, in a sense, although now her tone was significantly more hopeful and open-ended, compared to despondent and hopeless, which was progress at least. It was still a big ask, with an equally big answer, but at least now the answ...

Re: Dream On

Chapter 1: Kernel Panic “So what the hell do I do now?” It was a legitimate question, and one which I did not have an easy answer for. Clair was sitting cross from me on her designer black sofa, still in her professional work clothes, but with work being undoubtedly the furthest thing from her mind....

Dream On

This is another story which was floating in my head, and sorta demanded to be written out. I've been playing some Cyberpunk 2077 recently, and this is somewhat inspired by one of the story lines in the game. You can think of it as taking place roughly in that world, although hopefully it stands alon...

Compulsion to finish a story?

Curiosity question: Very often when I start writing something, even if it's an incomplete idea at first, I feel a pretty strong compulsion to keep going back and working on it, until it's "done". I know I have some OCD, so that's a possible cause, but I wonder how common this is among stor...

Re: The Trip

Epilog: Stepping Back Venessa did meet Sahara’s father the next day, after an elongated rest; a very nice and considerate man, in her estimation. The girls took advantage of the pool that morning, but by the afternoon they were back out, to see more sights and have more experiences. That pattern con...

Re: The Trip

Chapter 3: Exploring Venessa lasted about ten minutes trying to unpack while walking around strictly on her toes, give or take. While she was loath to remove the beautiful anklets (shackles? The distinction was a little fuzzy with these…), even with sitting breaks her calf muscles were getting tired...

Re: The Trip

Chapter 2: Settling In They would, eventually, make it all the way through the airport, and to the designated location for ride share pickups, even though that was still further separated from the terminal areas. Venessa had quickly discovered that walking around a dorm room with short steps, where ...

The Trip

Author's note: This is another fantasy-inspired story; probably lighter than most stories here, but hopefully still at least moderately engaging. It's semi inspired by some posts and comments from Jessica Ackles (to give credit where due). ----- Chapter 1: Stepping Out “You sure you still want to do...

Re: Playing with Fire

Thank you for your kind words/sentiment, and your feedback. Re length, this is always tough; I originally envisioned this as a short story, but it somewhat accidentally grew into a medium one. There's always a trade-off between "staying on topic" and meandering too much, and I tried to str...

Re: Playing with Fire

Author's addendum: I hope this story was enjoyable. In some sense, I feel like the Phantom, presenting a finished piece, only to disappear into the shadows once more (but with no threats to read it or anything; really more like Twist at the end of Beethoven's Last Night, for those who get that refer...

Re: Playing with Fire

Epilog The long term problem with falling in love with a demon and visa-versa, it turned out, was not so much the periodic all-consuming hunger; that could be managed. Neither was it the sexual sessions which extended for many hours and left me feeling near-dead, all in the interest of experimental...

Re: Playing with Fire

Settling In, and Branching Out During the week of downtime, Mona was doing what she could to alleviate my boredom, which I certainly appreciated. She had resumed her morning routine of waking me with a request to pleasure me, which initially gave me bad flashbacks, but I was getting re-accustomed t...

Re: Playing with Fire

After Action Report I awoke in pain and discomfort, and neither were in short supply. The first thing I noticed was that my head was throbbing, like I’d had too much to drink, and now had a massive hangover. The light in the room wasn’t helping; I went to pull the sheets over my head, but the sheet...

Re: Playing with Fire

Containment “May I pleasure you?” The now familiar morning greeting had not gotten old yet, and I sincerely hoped it never would. Some time in the night, Mona had moved out of the bed, and back to her familiar kneeling position on the side. I once again mumbled my obvious consent, expecting Mona to...

It wasn’t until Mona was under the covers that it registered that this particular session was proceeding a little slower than the previous ones, and then another few moments before it registered t...

Re: Playing with Fire

Note: The story is coming along nicely, and I'm getting closer to done; hopefully in the next few days I'll post the rest of the chapters. There are a few more, and it does take some twists (see previous note about trying to think through how something would function in the "real world", b...

Re: Playing with Fire

Feeling Out Constraints The next morning I was exhausted, despite having a very deep and restful sleep. Despite my regular weekend hikes and occasional gym visits, my body was not accustomed to regular vigorous exercise, and the amount of orgasms I was experiencing was taking a toll. That didn’t st...
