A dirty little secret [Jul. 11th, 2004|12:40 pm]
Zoethe
[Current Mood |cheerfultempting]

Here's a little secret that not many people know about Ferrett and me:

I'm the one who writes erotica.

There are a couple regular readers of my journal from the old CompuServe Star Wars forum and Echo Station who can attest to my experience writing highly-charged, explicit sex scenes. Another friend once wrote to tell me that she was rereading my erotic novel on an international flight and got so "warmed up" that she had to lock herself in the restroom and administer manual relief.

So, here's the deal. I will write at least two pieces of steamy erotica during the Blog-a-Thon. These entries will be available only to persons who have sent me a pledge. And, as a special bonus, for a pledge of $50.00 or more, I will write a piece of slash fiction of your choice (limitations being that I have to know who the characters are, and no child porn). People who pledge even during the blogathon will be retroactively added to the special list, but I do request notice ahead for the slash so that I have a bit of time to contemplate (a $100 pledge on the day will get slash-on-the-spot).

If you don't have a LiveJournal and you want to pledge, I can email the special entries to you.

Here's hoping this raises my pledge level. Remember, kids, it's for charity!

You may have to make a list of the requests you get, as I'd be curious to know which characters people want to see get it on. *giggle*

Damnit, but what about the fact that I'm pledging 36 *each*? That's more than 50.

/me makes the cute face and wonders if adding the pouty lip will help her cause.

Ohwell. I would really love to see the way you do a Holmes/Watson, but I hardly wish to press your timing on it, especially if you've never read and/or written that pairing before. That and the fact that generally, the more explicit the slash is, the less likely I am to read it again. (That's right, folks, I read slash for the romance, not the sex. And it still isn't necessarily for its erotic qualities. I bet nobody believes that.) I love Holmes/Watson wordplay, and the Victorian voices used by the authors. It usually feels like The Night Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Was Too Horny Not To Make His Characters Play.

Uhm, yeah. *pouts*

Hmmm. I have not read any fanfic of the two, but am a fan of the stories. The language is quite the challenge, however.

I will consider your arguments....

http://www.hwslash.net/frames.html <-- The site has recently broken a little, but this link is good. This place is pretty much the only Holmes/Watson slash place I've ever found. I'll do the arduous task of skimming through them to recommend a few.

If you take up the challenge, I vote you write a PG or PG-13 version and an R or X version. The euphemisms and other ways to imply or 'soften' sex are sometimes even more enjoyable to read than the explicit sex.

Off the top of my head, I recommend these, some of them just standbys because I like the plot and wording, others because the linguistic voice by itself is captured beautifully.

(Some links. I still don't believe I've found the one with the really amazing wording, but skim through and get a feel for how these authors write, especially their dialogue.)

It's a word doc. It's not posted on the internet. It's Star Wars fanfic, involving Luke Skywalker. It's quite explicit (okay, pornographic), but it also has a lot of plot.

I have been persuaded on more than one occasion to email the file...

I think in general women write better erotica. Good luck with the blogathon. Unfortunately, we have already donated what little we can afford to this year, but I think breast cancer research is a great choice.

I can testify to the general hotness of Jedi Nights and Jedi Nights 2 - which latter, BTW, is still unfinished to the best of my knowledge. Were you planning to finish it for a large pledge? Like, how large?

I would LOVE to finish JN2. Alas, the donation required would have to be for me personally and large enough to allow me to quit my job so I would have TIME to write.

Oh no! I pledged 50 bucks to the wrong storyteller.. Why didn't you tell me sooner that if I wanted hardcore erotica I should come to you instead of Ferrett?

Actually now that I consider it, I'm not very surprised..

Yes, well, I did not think about doing this until last night. Since you have pledged generously, I imagine you might see the goodies, though.

Pay no attention to me amusing myself..

Thank you for putting in a good word for me!

Of course you did promise to be my charity whore..

So maybe I should go "Damn right!" instead.

I intend it to be non-fanfic, except the specific requests that are paid for. I'm not that big into fanfic myself, for the most part.

How much for Ferrett/Zoethe slash? (ducks and runs!)

Seriously, I keep meaning to ask, how do you pronounce zoethe? I've been saying zo-thuh (with a soft "th" as in "thin") but, for all I know, it's "Zo-ee-thuh" or rhymes w/Goethe. Heck, I'll up my after payday pledge from $20 to $30 if you'll explain the signifigance.

Ohman, I'd LOVE to see a Ferrett/Zoethe pairing come up during the blogathon! Why didn't I think of that?!

Ohwell.

It might hit to close to home to easily write, though. Knowing your own voice isn't easy.

Actually, it's ZO-eth, soft th. It was the name of my first RPG character, in an Ars-Magica game. Ferrett had started playing the game when he and I got married, and I had demurred, having never roleplayed before, but after I heard them playing decided that maybe I wanted into the game after all. He said the GM had limited the game to five players.

I cried.

He called the GM, who said that there was a character whom he had intended to be an NPC (non-player character), but that if I wanted to I could play it. She was a priestess of the sun god Zolan. I made up the name based on that, Zoeth. Then thought it looked cooler with the extra "e" on the end.

Which botched up people's ability to pronounce it easily. Ooops.

I hope you do really well in your blog-a-thon. Unfortunately no bank account or credit card mean I can't donate so I'll just have to imagine what the erotica would have been like.

Woo hoo! Done! And it's been a long and horrendous process getting PayPal to work. Forgotten passwords, panic that my credit card is expiring at the end of this month and the new one is sent to my mom's address (and she's out of town this week) and and and... It's not much, but it's done. Now that I've got my password and etc sorted, I guess I should go & donate a little to your husband as well. ;o)

I just email it out. It's huge, though, so you would need a gmail account, or I would split in half.

I need to get a webpage up.
