Hit me baby, 37 times!

Could also be called, dont judge a story by its title! Oh, and PS, please dont hit me, even once. I might have a few kinks, but being spanked most definitely isnt one of them! Oh fine, that title, I guess?

https://mcstories.com/BirthdaySpankings/index.html

Yes, after far too long, I have switched it to the website address, rather than the URL one, which we had to use for a while, and I just never switched my favorite setting, but now…

Dont get me wrong, I know some people get a buzz out of spanking, or being spanked, but it does absolutely nothing for me. I’m not saying electrics is the only way I enjoy pain, but having my butt smacked most definitely does nothing for me. And yes, I know, I have tried it, hated it.

Yes, there is, unsurprisingly, some spanking going down in this story, but in truth, its just a short section, in a rather lovely romantic MC story that I got to read last week, which is why I’m recommending it. Lets just say that it may look like the ‘victim’ here is only going to get pain, but in truth, in the end, she gets far more pleasure, than pain!

So yes, I started it, thinking how soon I could excuse myself from it, given the subject matter, or indeed, whether I should even bother to start reading it, but I was so glad I did. So no, I have no plans to ever judge a story by its title, ever again! So if you like romance, with a bit of kink, well worth reading!

OK, video time. Firstly the original version

Alternatively, another chance to see Leo Moracchioli provide a very different version of the same song.

Or maybe both?

We can still come through

You know how, in peoples eyes, that librarians are a dull bunch of people, who never do anything exciting in their lives, or anything? Well, maybe in this modern world, that is the way they carry on, though I doubt it. But in fictional stories set in the past, librarians can be pretty crazy people. Well, one can at least, some crazy lady named Lemma.

http://192.155.80.152/LemmaTheLibrarian/index.html

I will point out this isnt my normal short, one chapter story that I’m posting about here, this has just completed after Chapter 20, and some of those chapters are quite lengthy, so be warned before digging in, but Lemma, and her cohorts make for an entertaining crowd. Dull librarian, no, she isnt!

In truth, this story isnt just about Lemma, and the books she has to collect, for good reason, its about the sidekicks that surround her, especially one, a guy named Iason. Put it this way, he’s the one that ends up getting Lemma out of most of the scrapes, and holes she drops herself into, and without him, she would have been a mind controlled slave, or supper for a dragon a long time ago!

So why write about it now? Well, as far as the EMCSA is concerned at least, she’s come to the end of her tasks, and the end of the road. Strictly she has to get safely home yet, but seemingly thats only in ebook branding, and I barely have enough money to live life, and time for reading anything else, so not going to happen. Great shame, but such is life. Again, maybe another reason for not getting too involved? So what I would suggest, maybe pick a chapter, or 2 at random, hope you pick a good one (wont be hard), and have a good laugh at her misadventures.

So what can I say, Lemma, and the author, Midori Konton (not her real name, but anyway), other than thanks for the incredible, and sometimes insane journey, I’m going to miss you.

Video time, what Iason did so many times for Lemma, though at the end, maybe the roles were reversed? Oh for the guys, the relatively modern day chorines.

Two (hundred) hearts, beating with just 1 mind

One of the fascinating tropes of Mind Control stories is the one known as the Hive Mind. Basically its comes down to everyone in the unit thinking as one, usually the thoughts of one controlling person, though there have been ones where literally everyone is computer (or AI) controlled, which is a pretty fascinating thought! The story tonight that brought up this subject matter is one of the former though, a supposedly evil woman controlling the thoughts of all her slaves, as one glorious hive mind, under her control.

http://192.155.80.152/Yew/index.html

Warning, it is long, just saying before you decide to leap into it, this section is over 11,000 words, and seemingly more to come, just saying… And fine, her methods suggest she is pretty determined to be in control of all, given the chance! So for those thinking of going to Mars, just be warned, lol!

In reality, I’m not sure if its truly possible to create a hive mind? Oh fine, so Mind Control as a whole is fictional, so obviously, no it isnt. But even if it was, for example, would it really be possible to control so many minds, to do so many roles, all at the same time? Seems impossible to me, but if anyone wants to prove otherwise to me?…

I know, strictly, in this case, the ‘slaves’ dont think, they just obey. But I wonder what it would be like, to be one of many all being sent the same commands Fine, part of me thinks it would be interesting to find out, but at the same time, its just one of those tropes that I think would be so weird to be part of?

I know, no one will tell me, but what do you think about that? Fancy being part of a hive mind, being in control of said hive (given the challenge that level of control would take), or just remaining yourself? Anyone brave enough to answer? No, I’m not seeking power, just the opposite in fact! 😉

OK, video time. This came to mind (pardon the pun), as close as I could get, a good old Phil Collins multi appearance video.

Whats in a name?

When it comes to names used in a story, there are a few that catch my eye, I have to admit. Its fair to say I’ve used Stephanie way too many times, generally not subtly in stories, but hey, as the author I’m allowed to do that lol! Its safe to say that no one, other than me, maybe, is going to use the name Harlean in a story, lets face it, and Clara is hardly likely to be the first choice for most nowadays.

There is however one other name, rarely used, that will also catch my eye, and thats Meredith. Why, simples! Because my ebook author name is Merry Brooks of course, though the likelihood of me releasing more ebooks in that name are slim at present, for better, or worse.

So when one author, whose work I enjoy included a character of that name, I took a special interest in her. He probably wishes he could change the name, to get me off his back, but anyway…Lets just say she has an interesting life, and leave it at that. This weekend, she got a story of her own, which was fun to read

http://192.155.80.152/FairShareMeredithsFirst/index.html

No, I have no experience of working as an escort, at any point in my life, let me say. And to be honest, its one of those jobs that I simply have no idea how I’d react to it, if I had. I must admit, I love the way Meredith sort of hesitates over doing it/not doing it, and everything else involved, all makes for a delightful read. How things will work out for her in the end, no idea, but I’m enjoying the main story (Fair Share, but given there are 36 chapters, you may not be feeling that brave?), so it will be fun to find out.

I must admit, the companionship side of it, and all that stuff would be lovely. Me, not so sure about the whole sex thing, mind, lol! I know, one comes with the other, but…?

Talking of things that might be fun to do, but I probably wouldnt, here are a couple of body stockings as a fine example. No, I havent got that kind of figure, not sure that I ever did have, but this would be so much fun.

So, ‘Voulez Vous’, me, as your escort for the night? 😉

Just For One Day?

As long term readers know, from time to time, I take a story I’ve really enjoyed from the latest update from the EMCSA and publicize it on here. Though in some elements this blog has been a bit tamed down from the early days, I still like to go back to the Mind Control stuff roots once in a while, and tonight is one of those.

Only thing is, this bit of publicity is a bit different to the norm. Its not so brilliant a story that its worth lots of hype, its just that, according to the author, this is his last one. To say I know little of Dictionary Rainbow beyond the odd contact on forums, or after reviewing one of his stories would be telling the truth. I know enough to know that he had a child a few years back, and I suspect that is probably one of the main reasons why he is quite literally getting out of the scene. So, if you click the link after the end of May, you probably wont get anything, just warning you!

http://192.155.80.152/CoffeehouseQuintetFive/index.html

I know, its long, but I found it worth the read. For those who havent got the time, without giving the outcome away, its about 2 twin sisters who now have nothing in common (including body shape), and a mysterious stranger who tries out something magical to bring them back together again. I will say it works, and leave it at that, because it doesnt work in a gooey, saccharin way, just warning any potential readers!

As someone with no sisters, indeed no family at all, I think I’m safe, lol! At the same time, allowing for the age difference between now, and her, but it would be fun, as a twenty, or thirty something, to be able to swap places, quite literally with my past life self, just for one day. Well, ideally a bit longer (about a week?), so I could get the feel of life working in the movies in the late 20’s, and during the 30’s before coming back to the real world. Thankfully in this story, you get the host bodies talents, so I would get her dancing skills, which might be a blessing! I wonder what Clara would make of a modern office lol? Oh my, that would be fun, and the amusement at actually asking Jean Harlow for her autograph, in real life… 😉

So anyway, Dictionary Rainbow (whatever your real name is), all my best wishes for the future, and thanks for all the memories. Oh, and thanks for one last story, and for letting us know you’re going, so we dont worry about you.

OK, video time. I think I might have given it away. But yes, this is a bit special. Not just Bowie, not just Queen as backing band either (its from the Freddie Mercury memorial concert), but the last (in this life at least) major live performance of Bowie, and Mick Ronson together. Ronson died a year later, at 46, from cancer, far too young.

That Same Old Feeling

Every so often, along comes a story at the Archive that amuses me more than most, and today has produced one of them! This one by the illustrious genius known as ‘Jukebox’.

http://192.155.80.152/ChooseToBeMe/index.html

Oh fine, why can I never get an offer like that? I’m sure by the sound of it, that even 60’s year old’s would come out with that stunning look, after a meet with Francesca lol! Oh agreed, I’d prefer a Clara Johnson, or second best, Jean Harlow version of that makeover, but given the description given of her, I’m sure I could just about cope with looking like that!

Even more so, given it would mean saying goodbye to damaged knees, damaged back, and everything else too! Yes, like Betty, I’m definitely nothing special to look at, at present, but after that transformation, oh wow! Fine, I was amused when Betty tried to resist at the end, but why am I not surprised that it was a futile gesture?

So yes, if Francesca is looking for a victim at present, it would make a heavenly 60th birthday present for me, in 6 weeks time, and counting! Well, from Friday at least!

Given that the video relates to this, I’ll slip it in now, rather than at the end. Depressing thing for me, this is all but 50 years old, and I remember it being released, and probably sang along to it, imagining I was the singer!

Thats not the only story that amused me in the wishful makeover sense today, there was this one as well

http://192.155.80.152/Admiration/index.html

Only thing is, I’d love to be everything that a certain Clara was, in this case! Be warned, this story is a little more adult than the first one, just warning… No, as far as I know, none of the pills I’m taking are having this effect on me…sadly!

Gang On The Run

OK, tonight is going to be one of that occasional series where I take a story I’ve read, and develop it into a blog. Given where its posted, its not hard to work out that things might not work out for the best for the group in the Escape Room, but read it, and find out

http://192.155.80.152/EntrancingEscapeRoom/index.html

Yes, I know I’m weird, but I have to say that this sounds a fun place to go! What a way to lose your mind lol!

OK, blog stuff. I’d never seen one of those Escape Room places until last May, when I saw one in Hollywood, on one of the corners of a street, along Hollywood Boulevard. I admit it, the details outside appealed to my fascination, so I tried looking up more about it online. Big snag was, its a group thing to do, and I was on my own. So no, it never happened! Besides which, I wasnt sure if I really had the money to try it on my own, even if it had been possible. But fine, there were a couple of concepts that appealed no end (I think one was a mental asylum type place), but wasnt to be.

Since then, one has opened up in Huddersfield, quite close to where I get off the bus in town in the morning. No, I havent even looked into it, given that I assume all these places are designed for small groups, and not for one person to do. In truth now, given the state of my back, its quite possible that the chance of me ever doing anything like this, is now probably gone. I know my readers are notorious for not ever commenting on my posts, but if anyone has done an escape room adventure, and knows what they’re like, please let me know. If you dont want to comment here, and I can fully understand, then just email me, at robotunit8@hotmail.com and let me know that way. Fine, no one will, but no harm in asking!

And yes, I know, compared to the one in the story, even if you lose, then I’m sure they are very tame in comparison lol! Who, me, want to submit my mind to control by a machine, oh surely not?

But yes, if anyone knows, and wants to quell my curiosity, then let me know here, or by email, pretty please.

The video, bit of a clue in the title, if not blindingly obvious!
