Tabenings - Not December Yet edition

I just sent off the next part of CORE 11 to Uzobono, which brings us up through part four (of fifteen). Hey, it's double what we had last week!

In other news... well, there's not much other news, honestly. Thanksgiving was nice, although there are family difficulties at the moment which I shan't get into. There are some yummy silver-painted girls in the music video for "Everything Sucks" by the band Dope, which has apparently been out for years but I only discovered it this weekend.

Mmm, I do like me some silver-painted girls. There's a silver-painted skin texture for the Victoria 4 Poser model which I have to say is almost enough to get me to try out 3D modeling again. The paces I'd like to put her through...

Tabenings - Eleven Point Two Edition

Greetings yet again! I just sent off the first draft of CORE #11 parts one and two to Uzobono for initial look-over and rendering, so things are underway! Right now I have, let's see, fifteen parts outlined, so that will give you a sense of the progress, which is to say there's a long way to go.

Haven't done much else in terms of smut; there are some difficulties in my personal life at the moment, and they are keeping me out of the headspace I generally need to be in for writing.

One thing I have done is I finally got around to playing Princess Trainer, which was enjoyable. It's a smut game by some Russian fellow named Akabur, and it's based on the Aladdin film from the House of Mouse. Basically, Jafar won, is now the ruler of Agrabah, and you are given princess Jasmine and told to turn her both (a) obedient and (b) slutty.

Fortunately, there's a "school" in town that sells classes which do exactly that - how they do it is a bit vague - so you do various quests and amass money and turn Jasmine into a dolled-up tramp, along with two other girls you meet along the way. It's enjoyable and smutty if an obviously male-centric male-power fantasy; the art is nice and the gameplay good. I liked it.

Between Princess Trainer and Free Cities, I really wish I had the impetus to create a 'Mind Trainer' game, where you use the various tropes and tools of the EMC genre to bend someone into the slave you want them to be. You start out with some cash, you buy and then upgrade various enslaving technologies and of course slaves - who start out rebellious, of course - and earn money with them in various ways to continue upgrading and refining your enslaving technologies.

Why, just off the top of my head you could have:
  • drugs
  • subliminals
  • hypno-machines
  • hypnotists (e.g. other slaves, yourself, outside contractors) 
  • cybernetics / implants
  • surgery / physical modification
  • squicky mind-control critters
Aimed at:
  • personality modification
    • obedience
    • fetish implantation
    • likes / dislikes
  • personality erasure
  • libido enhancement / reduction
  • memory implantation / erasure
  • sexual orientation
And in all sorts of combinations, intensities, etc. Much more fun than "I had her whipped a lot and now she loves me" IMO.

But of course talk is cheap and ideas are cheap - the real coin of the realm is effort. And I don't see myself wrestling through Twine or Ren'py any time soon.

But hey - CORE #11 is underway!

Tabenings - Ignition Edition

Woo, sliding in under the wire again. Thank you, habit!

Well, I've done a bit more on M&A, and I'm laying out CORE #11 and writing the first couple of scenes so that Uzobono can get started. As usual I'm the bottleneck; she's over there shooting me irritated glances (note: from several states away) and amusing herself trying out Daz Studio (or is that DAZ studio? Is it an acronym?) and wondering what stupid expensive props I'll ask for next.

But CORE #11 is underway, and there should be solid progress to report on it shortly.

I've realized that I haven't posted any more Secret Files here and I'd been meaning to. I think perhaps for Thanksgiving I'll post one of my very favorite of my own stories, 'Luthrina'. It's a fractured fairy tale, much more humorous than erotic, and I am very fond of it. Hmm, though as it is finished perhaps sending it to Simon would be the more appropriate course of action, and I can leave the Secret Files for more "bits 'n bobs" sort of things.

Tabenings - Election Edition

Well, it's election night, and I'm all freaked out watching the coverage, so nothing witty in the Tabenings this week. I just... how can we... how can so many people... gah! So terrifying.

Anyhow, hopefully the sun will rise tomorrow, and there will be additional mind control smut in the future.

Tabenings - Synthetic Edition

Hello again! Well, it's November! My time looks to be freeing up a bit-

-no, no promises. I will do what I do and then we shall see where we are.

In other news, though, Uzobono has produced another magnificent and ridonkulously large mind control comic book in the Division universe. If you haven't seen it, you owe it to yourself to download it right now!

I helped a bit with the text editing, so am always pleased to hear feedback about how good it is.
