From the Own Your Dark Side poll, the results as of this writing are for a sample of 50 readers. 58% percent of respondents have frequent fantasies involving non-con. And for over 1/3, that’s the dominant sexual fantasy type. That doesn’t surprise me very much, considering what we write, though my real non-con has been off site for about a year and a half. I’m thinking of changing that, at least part way.
The reason my non-con isn’t public anymore is due to a promise I made. I moved it all to a private blog accessible only by invitation, so that the audience would be limited and controllable. I intend to continue to keep my promise, while at the same time being a little more flexible and complete with who I am as a writer. What that means is I plan to reinstate the stories I’ve removed from this blog but keep them behind a password access. And here’s the catch. I’ll give you the password if you want it – but only if I know you. How do I know you? I know you if I interact with you. If you’ve written a comment or shared thoughts on any of my stories with more than ‘I liked it’, you’re in if you wish. If we converse on the interwebs (this counts twitterfolk), you’re in if you wish.
If that price of admission is too high; if you feel it’s capricious or arbitrary, I understand. But them’s the rules, for now at least. I’m going to start reinstating the stories in the next couple days and putting links back up to them on a new dedicated page. If you want in, post a request in the comments below, with ‘ObsidianLens’ (all one word) in the text. It’ll be held for moderation, and, if you fit the creteria and you include a way to contact you (preferably an e-mail) I’ll send you the access password. If you haven’t commented, and want access to these stories, well, why don’t you find something of mine you liked – or didn’t like – and say so now. It’s never, ever to late to comment on a posted story. Tell me what you think. And, yeah, a note saying just something like ‘send me the password’, or ‘Me me me!’ ain’t gonna do it either. If you think that makes me an arrogant, elitist prick, then you’re probably right.
Another reason I’m doing this is that some of the things I know I want to write would fall into this category too. Non-conset, and other stories of the darker variety are on my to-write list. That hasn’t been the case for a long time, but now that it is, I’d kind of like a place where it can be seen, even if by a small set of readers. Not that I can promise anything specific at any specific time. But, I want the avenue open for the if and when.
Now, if nobody is interested in this, that’s also fine. This post will just drift down and settle into obscurity, but at least I’ll have put things more the way I wanted to, and it’ll make my oeuvre in the blog a little bit more whole something I think appropriate to start a third year.
If you have thoughts about this you’d like to share, you’re invited to. If you don’t put ‘ObsidianLens’ in the comment, it’ll post normally.
Note: Any comments with ‘ObsidianLens’ will remain private and not be published in the comment section.
For reason’s of my own, I’ve also been reluctant to post stories with these themes. The Obsidian Lens gives me the opportunity. I’ll be moving some stories already written, and I’ll be writing new stories to be included in Obsidian Lens. The same password will work for my stories as well.
