Hey-yo! Still alive!
In fact, I'm busy writing CORE #15, as always in collaboration with the magnificent Uzobono. So look for that in, uh, mid summer?
I'm still getting good erotic mileage out of my Stardew Valley headcanon, the one with Abigail being seduced/programmed into becoming a Joja female appliance and accepting brain implants which basically turn her into a robot.
The original idea I formulated is here: Joja!
and expanded upon with the brain implant design later on here: Apply Directly
Since one of the purposes of this blog is to capture ideas for hypothetical later use, here's the third installment.
Here's a quick character reference
, if you haven't played Stardew Valley.
As Abigail is transitioning to a female appliance, the story also is transitioning from her lived experience to that of the farm owner. As Abigail's brainwashing and dedication to Joja deepens, one of the key tasks that Joja sets her on is the brainwashing of the farmer (let's call her "Playa"). Thus, by the time Abigail returns from Zuzu City with her first brain implant, Playa is already erotically programmed to desire her own conversion into a Joja drone - to be specific a Joja farming asset.
The brain implants, as mentioned, are both internal and external - little egg-shaped devices of which half are visible on the outside of the head (and the other half, internal to the skull and radiating control wires across the brain). Aethernaut did a fantastic illustration
of the concept:
The first brain implant gives Joja more-or-less total control over their new asset. In theory a resistant subject could fight the brain implant's control - and lose - but of course at this point the asset has been deeply brainwashed and wants nothing other than to be the best Joja drone she can be. As the step up from brainwashing, the implant does allow Joja commands to be fed directly into the asset's mind, although the asset's brain still needs to process the instructions and take action (so not puppeteering). And the implant continues the brainwashing process; external hypnotic sounds and visuals continue to be applied (eagerly, by the asset herself) but are now accompanied and coordinated by the implant as it reads the brain and applies direct bio-feedback as appropriate.
A third task of the first implant is to record the asset's personality. This is because that personality will be erased by the implantation of the second implant, which is installed on the opposite side of the asset's skull. Thus, when Abigail returns from the Joja surgical facility the second time (an appointment that just thinking about made her almost climax, so intense was her desire to become a better slave), she's really not 'Abigail' any more. The second implant contains the slave personality that is now threaded throughout Abigail's brain, and integrated with the first implant. 'Abigail' - or rather, Joja female appliance #17,562 - is now essentially a robot, receiving commands and obeying them without really wanting anything, other than to obey.
Playa has been hypnotically primed for this and finds it intensely erotic, and when she fucks the very receptive female appliance (after all, that's one of a female appliance's core functions) she's almost more aroused by 'Abigail's' robotic demeanor than she is by her naked body. Playa herself at this point is becoming extremely receptive to the idea of getting her own brain implant.
Once the second implant is satisfied that any remaining traces of 'Abigail' have been dissolved, female appliance 17,562 returns for the third brain implant. As mentioned, it's a socket, a half-egg shaped depression in the center of her forehead. It's a receptacle for a personality module, of which female appliance 17,562 has returned with three, silver orbs in a small velvet box. One of them is labeled 'Abigail'. Inserting that module results in twenty seconds of fluttering eyelashes as female appliance 17,562 reboots; and then smiles. It is now perfectly able to simulate the mannerisms of 'Abigail', and has access to Abigail's memories via its link to the Joja databases. Of course, female appliance 17,562 has no desires other than to serve Joja and is merely pretending to be Abigail.
In fact, the 'Abigail' personality can and is applied to female appliances throughout the Joja economy, just as female appliance 17,562 can instead socket one of the other personalities - it has returned with one labeled 'Latisha', an identity once belonging to a different female appliance.
Then there is the third personality, labeled only with a red stripe around the silver orb. After several days using the female appliance both with and without the 'Abigail' personality, female appliance 17,562 instructs Playa to insert the third orb. She obeys. The third personality is entirely artificial, and has one mission: to complete Playa's transformation into a Joja farming asset.
Helpless to resist her artificial Mistress' dominance, Playa submits to ever-deeper brainwashing, including the injection of drugs which both increase her strength (coupled with intense, Mistress-controlled workouts) and her bust size until Playa begins lactating. Not only will she serve Joja by working on the farm, she will produce milk with her own body for their use. Her days begin now strapped into a milking (and brainwashing) machine.
At this point we introduce Leah. A friendly neighbor, Abigail laid the stage for her intake into Joja slavery earlier, and now the Mistress Module instructs Playa to intensify the secret and then overt brainwashing of the red-headed artist. Playa eagerly complies. By the time Playa reports to the Joja surgical facility for her own brain implant, Leah is eagerly masturbating as she imagines one of her own.
Once Playa returns with the implant, the Mistress Module is no longer required and is returned to the box. Joja can control Playa's brain directly, and does so. Playa of course is now an eager farming asset, strong in body and productive with her pendulous breasts. She has sold her entire farm to Joja in return for a lifetime lease on the property, with the legal stipulations that Playa must work the property at Joja's direction, planting what they direct her to and selling the produce to Joja at whatever price Joja specifies. Playa herself is legally bound to the property and may neither leave nor alter the contract - not that she will ever wish to. She is a Joja farming asset, just like the farm itself, and her only desire is to produce for Joja.
Leah of course is an artist. As she hangs out with Playa and female appliance 17,562, who by now rarely has a personality module installed, and obeys Joja commands and Playa's commands equally robotically, Leah wonders what sort of Joja asset she will become. Can Joja make use of her artistic talents, once she is their property? Every day she edges closer to making that erotic and permanent leap.
In the event, the answer is "no". Leah returns with her brain implant and announces that she is to become livestock. Playa smiles and begins Leah's course of brainwashing and drugs and exercise, turning her into a milk-producing farm laborer much like Playa herself. Only where Playa is a Joja farm asset, receiving commands directly from her brain implant, Leah is livestock. She will work and give milk but will provide no input of her own.
When 'Leah' returns with her second implant, Joja Livestock Asset #4,901 mindlessly gets to work on the farm.
So! As you can see, I continue to evolve and get mileage out of this scenario. One challenge is that I almost certainly should not write it as erotic fan-fic, meaning that I should change all the names. Unfortunately I love the name 'Joja' - I've repeated it so much as part of the fantasy that it will be hard to break. What do?
Hope you all are well!
