I was recently on a little jaunt out that was, frankly, a travesty I'm not going to discuss.  Pisses me off too much.  HOWEVER, something did occur while I was out that I'd like to mention.

While out, I ran across a pretty glum looking teenage girl.  No news there right?  Anyways she had her laptop out and was typing things in from a notebook.  Curious, and with time to kill, I asked what she was up to.  Turns out she was transcribing some writing, which I thought was great!

Then i got talking more.  Turns out she has a sister and a brother.  Her brother enters singing competitions, and I think her sister was in sports or something.  Okay, so what you ask?  Turns out her parents were there supporting her brother at a singing contest.  Yay, right!  That's what parents do!  And they had been out supporting her sister recently too, good on them!

But her hobby was writing.  And while they happily SAID they supported her, they sure as hell didn't support her much.  Because their idea of support was to read her finished work, if she ever made any.

I read some of her work, and she watched me with baited breath.  I told her it was frankly bad writing, and why I thought so, and she was OVERJOYED.  Why?  because SOMEONE was providing her with feedback!  It was negative, but it was constructive at least!  Now, this wasn't good writing.  It honestly took an axe to the idea of grammar and beat punctuation like it was owed money.  BUT, the ideas were KIND of sound, and I thought it was a waste to shove them in a computer and lose them.

I gave her my email (no word yet) and said I'd read more if she wanted to send it, and give her my ten cents' worth on it.   But I was SO sad about that!  I mean, what the hell?  Can't a parent be bothered to read and give some help?  Can't a sibling do a little editing?  Apparently not.  When it comes to writing I guess you're supposed to provide all the motivation, work, and editing yourself, plus critical thinking, rereading, and plot hole scanning.  THEN you MIGHT be able to get people to look at it, if they're not too busy fawning over someone else.

That's so much bullshit.  Writing is fucking HARD.  And it's almost IMPOSSIBLE with nobody interested in what you're doing.  If you are the only one going over an idea and nobody else cares, then you think it out, maybe make a note or two, and shrug it off because hey, who else cares?  NOBODY, right?  Writing is for OTHER people, and if nobody cares enough to even nod in your direction and say 'Hey, what are you writing?  Let me hear a bit' then what's the point?

Even me writing this is so YOU guys can weigh in on it.

Remember folks, writing isn't glamorous but it IS hard work and it takes a lot of time and care.  Help out the process where you can by giving some constructive criticism, or some opinions, or some ideas.  Sometimes all you have to give is the smallest of shits.

Have a good one and keep it safe, sane, and consensual!  And try to support one another in what matters to each other!

Considering half of you are reading this largely BECAUSE of the short little comic in question, linking to it almost feels redundant, but here it is anyways!  Nacha and Kelly can be found in the gallery of Boundpretties here: boundpretties.deviantart.com/g…

I just want to say a few words about it.  It's been a fun time and an interesting learning experience.  Both Kelly and I have had fun replying to people, and everyone in the house has enjoyed the work of course (seeing Kelly get tied up being one of the favorite pastimes around here!).  The polls have been interesting to watch, and the results have been sometimes surprising.  One observation I have is that if there's a way to add more rope to a cute girl, that will be one of the most popular options!

One of the other things I have noted is that the comic was a fair success, and I'm glad people enjoyed it!  As of this point the story such as it is is done with, but there's one more picture coming up to it as a little end cap.  Look forward to it!

Now I'd naturally like to thank some people.  Boundpretties, of course, for tackling the project and delivering SO much awesome art!  He gave me what I asked for, and if he changed anything it was always for the better.  Then there's Devious-Drake, who paid for one of them when our funds choked a bit, kudos to him!  And of course, Kelly for being such a sport in the first place.  Mostly, my boyfriend of 20 years, Dagger, who paid for the overwhelming bulk of the work and an anonymous friend of ours for letting us use his paypal account to pay for all this, as well as paying for one of the pictures for us.  Thank you all!

But I'd also like to thank all of you who enjoyed, commented, and favorited!  After all, it was as much for everyone else as for us we did this little venture (that's a lie, it was for my greedy self, but we figured it would be nice to share!  Hee!).  After all, without so many positive responses stroking my ego and making Kelly chuckle I don't think we'd have gotten so far into the comic so quickly!  Never underestimate the power of positive feedback and even simple interest in a project!

All in all I'm glad the comic was such a success and people enjoyed it as much as they did!  I won't be promising future works like this because frankly the bankroll for it isn't here at this time.  BUT!  If another one gets started, I will let people know, not that most of you could possibly miss it!  Hee!

Also, nice job NEVER picking the 'be nice to Kelly' option.  I threw those in specifically to see if people would be.  To those few who chose them in any given poll: thank you!  I appreciate the care!  For the rest of you..... Well, hey, Kelly came up with the other options!  She figuratively asked for it!  Hee!

Alright, folks, keep it safe, sane, and consensual!  I'm out!  Thank you one more time!

Nacha
Why is it when I can't sleep I come up with stuff to write down?!  Well, good enough I guess.  Something's got to fill up space around here!  Hee!  So, here's something I was thinking about.

My boyfriend Dagger got chatting with Bluish Feather earlier, whose work you can see here: bluishfeather.deviantart.com/

Bluish Feather is someone I don't REALLY know, but whose work is much liked around the house because it's frikkin' ADORABLE.  When you have a house with four women in it and only one guy who is a Jem and the Holograms fan, that counts.  So we're collectively fans of Bluish Feather's art in general, and he does tickling themes as well, which ranges from cute to comical.  Add in nice bright colours and a generally positive look, and you have fun and bright stuff that's at the light end of my general alley.  Go check it out!  His OC Kitty is pretty much the avatar of the word 'cute' in my head right now...... and there's been some indication of a return to activity here!  Yay!

One thing that came up, as often happens, is that I was recognized under the name and Kelly as well, for of course BoundPretties' lovely image set of us here: boundpretties.deviantart.com/g…

Bluish Feather noted that it was neat to talk to 'celebrities', which was more I think for a lack of other words at the time.  Flattering, yes, but it has been nagging at the back of my head.  What does it take to BE a celebrity around here?  I mean, some of the artists around here have published works!  My good friend Steve O. Reno and delightful story-smith Shiniez for example, the former with three books of pinup gals and the latter with the now completed Sunstone comic and others soon to come.  Check them out to, they're awesome!  And I think they definitely count as celebrities because I know people who have never even SEEN Deviantart and yet know their handles!

steveoreno.deviantart.com/
shiniez.deviantart.com/

Others are pros, you can see their work in multiple avenues if you look, such as The Saint, aka Bound To Please.  He does work in a variety of venues, and is a great fellow to chat with.  He's also a high quality artist with a great style of his own.  Look him up here: bound-to-please.deviantart.com… This is a man who makes a living at art, so is truly a professional artist.  Does that make him a celebrity?  I hope so, he deserves it!

Of course everyone knows and loves some artists.  BoundPretties is a perpetual fan pleaser, with a wonderful gallery and amazing turnaround time on commissions.  He's easily found right here! boundpretties.deviantart.com/ His artwork is well thought out, fun to see, and expressive as heck, with enough cartoony quality to make it enjoyable.  Awesome, and definitely a celeb in my books given the number of people that flipped when he was temporarily off the site!  In a similar vein is Jam Orbital, another fun and colourful artist with a loyal fan base and plenty of fun characters, whose work you can see just over here: jam-orbital.deviantart.com/ Both celebrities of a kind as well, and well deserved.  They've done a lot of work.

Well, they're all well known and well represented.  Most of the above are published, all are beloved by fans across the 'net.  I'd have to say they're definitely celebrities!  But...... when did they cross that invisible threshold?

Is it the number of people who have heard of you that makes it count?  How famous you are?  Is it what work you did?  Can one image make you a celebrity?

There are some awesome artists out there building awesome world in comics.  Two come to mind right off: Alexichabane, who has the Senya-verse with an absolutely amazing amount of fluff and lore behind the comic (over here: alexichabane.deviantart.com/ ), and Eio-Eio-Eio, who writes the hilariously zany and still serious world of Semi-Auto Selma (and who I recommend you check out here: eio-eio-eio.deviantart.com/ ).  I think both attract enough attention to be 'celebrities' but why?  Where's the line?!

Then I got thinking, there's another on here I know is a sort of retired celebrity around the site, and the inspiration for my fan-poll series of images thanks to a clever comic idea she attempted: Tasha Polecat!  She was part of the Chainsman Institute, which was a HUGE multi-artist creative venture that was a major stop for a lot of lovers of the BDSM back a while ago.  Her work is quite fun and while she hasn't put much on her profile lately, I still recommend a check in here: tcpolecat7.deviantart.com/gall…

Then I got pondering about it and thought: well, some CHARACTERS are celebrities.  For example, I have seen the pink haired elf Karen pop up in more than a few places, the OC of Karen Gaianni (karengaianni.deviantart.com/). And then there's.....

And then I finally hit the brakes and facepalmed.  The common thread of all these celebrities?  Me.  I've HEARD of them.  I like, respect, or enjoy them.  Sure, most people consider a celebrity to be someone super popular, widely known, and so on.  But, really, did I care?  People abuse english like nobody's business these days.  So, I've decided on something.  To me, on this site, you're a celebrity in my books if I can find someone else to talk to who has a valid opinion about you.  If they care enough about your work to have an opinion they care to discuss, you're a celebrity enough to me.  Creator, character, writer, artist, doesn't matter.  And what's the end result of this?

I know a heck of a lot of celebrities!  Hee!  But also, by writing this, and by mentioning them, hopefully I can spread their celebrity a little further.  Because it's not a static thing.  The moment someone has heard of you, you are a celebrity.  It only takes ONE person, because 'celebrity' isn't a thing you can just quantify.  I was thinking of it in terms of 'a person who is famous' and forgetting the word also means 'a measure of fame'. So, go dig through your list of favorites and introduce me or someone else to some celebrities!  Naturally mine MOSTLY revolve in some way around the BDSM lifestyle or art thereof, but hey..... this place has a huge number of artists making beautiful, intelligent, inspiring, and just plain weird art.  Be it your own or someone else's, remember, celebrity is a thing you can help spread a little more at your whim.  It's not hard, just mention it!  Here's one: White Raven Lord, good friend of mine, lots of interests, HUGE storehouse of lore and fluff on things, lovely writer.  Find him here: whiteravenlord.deviantart.com/

There's others: GBeeee, HK881, the massively famous Genzoman, IDarkshadowI, Reptileye, Phantomdotexe, DanteWontDie, the non-BDSM comic writer Mr-Culexus, heck Harry Partridge has a page here!  What do these people all have in common?  Well, you've heard of them now, so they have just a little more celebrity.  And I think they're all worth checking out.  I'd post links but I'm getting tired.  Time for me to flare out.

Remember to keep it safe, sane, and consensual!  Browse responsibly!  And hey...... go ahead and start considering me and Kelly celebrities!  We don't mind!  Hee!

Recently it was noted to me that there is a subset of bondage lovers that just really dig the gags.  This was a little chat with The Saint (bound-to-please.deviantart.com…), a lovely gentleman with a delightful fan base who I recommend checking out if you haven't previously.

Anyways he noted there's a subset of us bondage people (myself included!) with a HUGE thing for gags.  And I thought I'd take a self reflective little look at this.  Now, there's no shortage of types and mechanisms FOR muffled speech, silence, and holding the jaws open.  But what's the appeal?

In any bondage scenario there is a measure of control.  One of the most powerful expressions of that is removing the subject's ability to speak.  If they can't speak, they have no ability to protest, no ability to instruct or suggest or complain.  It's a powerful feeling having someone in your control that can't even effectively tell you to stop!  It's pretty much a huge ego stroke to have undirected control over a sub.

There's a measure of submission.  As a sub there's almost nothing you can do with your domme that shows you're more submissive than giving up your ability to complain.  No protest means you are jacking up the kink factor because they can get away with anything and at best you can make vague indicators of your comfort or discomfort with a scenario.  Once you lose the ability to say something clearly, you can be ignored to a point because your complaints become easily mis-interpreted.

There's also a measure of trust.  If you're involving a gag in play, there's a wonderful feeling of trust and some nice warm fuzzies in there.  When you're buckling up that ball, tying that wad of cloth into place, or wrapping that tape in, there's a nice cuddly feeling.  You know your slave is fully in your hands when they allow, or even request, a gag.  It's crossing a threshold that's proof you're doing something right in the relationship, or that you're getting some good electricity!

There's also some accessorizing when it comes to gags.  A bright red ball gag is a splash of colour, a shiny silver dental gag is bright and shiny, scarves can be all sorts of colours.  Just what KIND of gag you use can be a good reveal as to taste and style as anything!  Let's face it, folks, sometimes full body black latex just needs a little extra something, and a gag gives you one more chance to do something visual.

In art and role play, there's a sense of complete helplessness to a gagged person.  Let's face it, someone who can still shout for help can at least DO something!  When you have a gagged figure, they can't even passively try to help themselves that way.  It's a visual cue for extreme helplessness.  If someone isn't gagged and isn't calling for help, they're either in a complex situation..... or they're not feeling threatened.  A gagged person tends to be more scared, intimidated, or (sometimes) angry.

So basically what I'm coming up with?  Gags are a force multiplier for all sorts of feelings!  By adding that gag you're nudging (or leaping) over that invisible boundary.  You're making something happen, flipping a little switch over.  It's hard to explain, and it's not something people try to quantify often, but there it is.

I know this one's short and kind of bullet-point, but hey...... it's just an examination of facts, and I feel it's about time I get an entry that's less rambly and a bit more snappy!  So, what are your thoughts on gags?  Let me know below!

Remember, folks, keep it safe, sane, and consensual!  And have fun!
