Callidus is back!

Callidus is back!

I mean, he never went away, really, but he's updated his website again - in a big way! *girlish squealing*

As you know, I've collaborated with Callidus on several occasions, all of which you should look up. It's great to see new material from him - not just the new animated manip, which is quite hot, but all the yummy bells and whistles that adorn the updated site. If you haven't checked it out yet, go enjoy!

Tabenings - Dwindling September Edition

It's Tuesday! And here's an update!

Hmmm, perhaps I should make this a regular thing.


Okay, first let's talk about the stuff you care about. CORE #12 is proceeding - the first scene, which is much longer than has been the case for prior issues, is all rendered now, and is pretty darned hot. That is, it's hot if you share my various fetishes, which I assume you do. And I have written the second scene and sent that to Uzobono, who is working on it even as we speak. As usual, I'm just trying to keep out ahead so that Uzo doesn't suffer any downtime.

In terms of overall progress, there will probably be eleven or so scenes total, so I'd say we're well underway but not close to any big milestones.

As for 'Modding', whose title I am shortly to change, I'm happy to report that I'm up to 18,875 words, so more progress there. And I *just now* actually got to the very first scene that my erotic imaginings conjured up back in Italy this summer. Yes, it's been almost twenty thousand words just to get to the first fucking thing I thought of. Damn me and my irresistible compulsions to tell a story "properly" rather than just writing down the hot parts. Not that the earlier bits aren't hot, mind you, there's monster fucking right off the bat, just that the really *POW* Holy Fuck My Genitals moments are only just now finally coming into being.

At least, I hope they'll be PHFMG moments. I mean, you never know, right? But I still think the core ideas are pretty fucking wow.

So that's me. Also I'd like to observe that there are some really tasty stories appearing on the EMCSA these days. I don't get there like I used to... who am I kidding, I check religiously every Saturday night for the update. But I haven't been really getting into the stories like I once did, probably for many reasons all of them personal to me and my aging self.

But recently more stories seem to be in the particular bents that I like. So I want to observe that I'm very much enjoying The Odyssey, a story of sci-fi alien squick and mind control. Clearly it would be up my alley on subject matter grounds alone, but that's not enough these days, and I'm very much enjoying this particular treatment of the subject and the authorial voice. I love stories about things that turn me on which are well-written but not by me; there's something about having someone else tell these stories that really pleases, both by virtue of there being surprises but also because it's simply nice to hear from someone else, as it were.

Also this week I quite enjoyed 113B, about fully-indoctrinated slaves escaping (maybe) from an industrial slaving facility. Again, the subject matter is smack dab in my favorites and I'm really pleased by the new and different treatment of some of my favorite ideas.

I generally hesitate to praise stories in public just because I worry that people I don't mention might feel slighted, so let me add that I am as scattershot as can be and these two stories happen to make me happy at this particular moment; there are many other recent stories that I'm not mentioning because, well, I'm flighty and tend to forget things. But feel free to recommend your own recent likes!

Okay, that's enough for tonight. Hopefully the act of finally reaching the actual PHFMG scenes that I've been wanting to write and share for months will spur me onward at greater pace in my production of 'Modding'. We'll see!

Tabenings - Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Edition

Ha-HA! I am not dead!

First off, sorry about that. Nothing dramatic happened, but my life just got super busy to the point where things were falling off the plate, as it were. And although you know I love you, when it comes down to it, it's family first, then work, and my porn-writing hobby comes in fairly far down that list. So when the going got hectic, the blogging got cut.

But I'm back! And I shall do my level best to keep updating.

Hmm. Not great news on the 'Modding' front - 16,895 words as I check this evening - and I did a little work on it this evening - so some movement, but that pretty much was on hold for the last month as well. On a different front, I *have* started CORE #12 with Uzobono; the first thirty or so pages are written and Uzo's cranking out the illustrations. So there are a couple of irons in the fire at the moment.

People continue to make the entirely understandable observation that they'd like the conclusion to 'Pierced'. And so would I! So let's not go writing that off just yet, it did take me over a year to get to the coda for 'Seed'.

But for now, let's just go with 'okay, I am blogging and writing smut again' and see how things pick up. My predictions about having more time at this time of year were laughably incorrect, so I shall refrain from further predictions and fall back upon hope.

Also, the solar eclipse was pretty cool.
