Knowing me now, and in the future

Yes, as regular readers will know, every so often I read a story that inspires me to blog about it, or the concept of it at least. And yes, today was one of those days. A link to the story

Oh, by the way, for those concerned, the mind control is only hypnosis, and the concept its used for, is just so sweet. Fine, if you want to read the story, without knowing the plot, go do so now!

OK, you’re back?

No, I’ve never met myself from my future, as far as I know, and given my age, I dont think its going to happen now! Pretty sure I havent got 30 years left, and I certainly hope thats the case at present, the way things are. But yes, it might have been interesting, had it happened when I was younger, and could have moved things along in a different way, if I’d had the choice. And fine, re the story, let me add that I’m no fan of piercings (beyond ears, once), and despite having one small one, not a big fan of tattoos either.

But in terms of looking back/forward at how lesbian relationships were looked upon, and events, even happening now, it makes an interesting historical piece. If anyone from the future had told me, at the beginning/middle of the 80’s, that single sex marriage would be legal, I’d have laughed at them. But here we are now, and…

In terms of myself, my only other voice I’ve heard, was the one from the past, and that technically wasnt me, it was my past life. But as was said at the time, her voice was so different to mine, it was quite amazing. Yes, sweet little Clara Johnson. But of course, I couldnt talk to her at the time, unlike Jessica in the story.

I’ve never yet, considered getting Clara, and her modern day self, CJ, to meet in one of my stories, I just feel that would be a little too weird, for all involved! Mainly because, despite all the crazy things she’s done, CJ has not yet done any time travelling! And fine, given my attachment to both, I’m pretty sure I’d struggle to write a scene with both of them in, anyway!

But yes, I wonder what we would do, if in our early twenties, we could meet ourselves, in our early fifties, and maybe change our lives for the better? Possibly its best that its only fiction!

The video, well, knowing me, knowing me, isnt a song title, so this is as close as I could get!

What would happen?

I suppose this came about because of a recent story by one of my favourite writers, Redecoration, by Tang. For those of you who need a link, its

http://www.asstr.org/~mcstories/Redecoration/index.html

To save you reading it all before reading this blog, I’ll summarise it as Nicola, an administrator in an office, gets changed into Nikki, motorcycle courier rider. Yes, the clothes look changes from traditional to leathers, as you would expect from her new role, but also goes from hetro to lesbian. All this because she has a rival who wants her job!

Its a great story, you should read it if you get the time, and let the author know Merry sent you. Of course some of you will have read it already of course. But yes, you get an idea of where this is heading. If this happened in real life, how easy would it be to cope with a whole new identity, let alone a whole new sexuality, and fashion style? I think its fair to say, probably as hard as Nicola does initially in the story. Of course, because of the fictional mind control, and magic involved in this story, she soon learns to cope. But in real life…?

I suppose a lot depends how dramatic the changes are, as I have proved to myself, just changing your name isnt that difficult a thing. Well, alright, I did once or twice early on, sign my old name, to amusement at work, but anyway…I soon got the hang of it lol! But a whole new look, a whole new job, and a whole new sexual attitude, maybe not so easy!

As much as I’d love to arrive in my hotel in Seattle in a few weeks time, and find a US Passport in a different name (yes, one of the obvious ones, but I have my reason for not mentioning it just yet), an address in the country, and preferably a job, that would be great, and no reason at all I couldnt cope with that, though it might make my current pre pay credit card fun to use lol. What might come as more of a shock would be if the picture looked ‘a bit’ different to the current me, say. Even more so if I got up in the morning, or just went in the bathroom straight away, and looked very different. Sexuality with me, hey, lets face it, if I was interested in guys, girls, or both, then that would be a change for me anyway!

But lets face it, how weird would it be to go to the address given on your ID, and know that you live there. Even more so when you have no idea what to expect, though I suspect knowing ‘me’, the apartment would probably be fashionably decorated 20’s style, though complete with internet and cable TV lol! As for my wardrobe at home…

Even more so, the job. If you go by the story, people would know you at the workplace, and you would know the job too. I mean, I suppose a call centre operator, I could probably cope, but anything else nowadays…? Not sure if interesting would be the right word as much as fascinating would be. Especially if somehow or other I know how to drive a car! Now that would be something.

The where, well I think its fair to say that unless I’m a farmgirl, or worker in Cherryvale (in which case I do hope I can drive), then the obvious places for a certain new me would have to be either Wichita, or Rochester, NY I think. Yes, you know who I’m hinting at looking like lol, not that it was ever hard to work out I guess, if you’ve read any, or many of these.

But if anyone is actually thinking, I can provide her with that experience, feel free to do so! I’m sure I could cope with being a Brooksie lookalike, I really do! 😉

Funny thing is, I discovered by typing into You Tube that there is a famous Meredith Brooks, just shows how out of touch I am with modern music. Yes, either Meredith, or Mary would be the obvious christian names for the ‘thoroughly modern brooksie’, I think. And funnily enough, she recorded a song called “What Would Happen”, even if it wasnt about a situation like this. One of her other songs (I Need) actually mentions Seattle in the lyrics, and she was born in Oregon, the next door state.

But no, I dont want to be her, I want to be plain Meredith (call me Merry), or Mary Brooks, from Kansas lol! Middle name, please, do you really have to be told? The song, the obvious one given the title of this blog
