Tragedy, Betrayal, Loss, Devotion, Obsession, Dom/Domme Competition, GhostsCharacters Involved:
Giselle, Albrect, Hilarion (Negotiable on the names Albrect and Hilarion, but not Giselle), Queen Myrtha of the WilisI Would Play:
Either Albrect and Myrtha or Giselle.Plot:
Giselle is a peasant that lives across the river from Duke Albrect. She's been infatuated with the prince for as long as she can remember. Sometimes innocently, sometimes she throws herself into lustful fits. She's as obsessed with her duke as the duke's gamemaster is with her. When the duke learns of this on a hunting trip, he decides to meet the girl. She's beautiful and naive, the definition of purity and innocense.
His reasons for attempting to seduce her, however, are less than noble. When he takes her back to his castle and ensures that she falls in love with him as he humiliates her more and more. He makes his gamemaster watch when he takes her virginity, and he parades her around the castle like a pet. All the while she continues to feed him her absolute devotion and adoration. He promises that he'll make her his bride if she becomes pregnant with his heir and ignites her infatuation into a full blown inferno. When it finally occurs, however, she's given a knive as a wedding present and he tells her that if she really loved him she would commit suicide for him so that he would always remember her as beautiful as she was that moment.
She smiles as she drives the knife into her heart.
Her ghost is greeted by Mytha, the Queen of the Wilis (Pronounced: Veela. vengeful spirits of brides whose dance will force men to their deaths. Chances are you know of them from Harry Potter.) But, even in death, even after the betrayal and humiliation, Giselle's spirit is reluctant to seek vengeance against the man she loved in life. In death, Giselle is faced with a choice of which royalty she wishes to serve. She can return to her duke to be his abused pet for the rest of his life, true to her word that she would never again age a day and stay as beautiful as the moment when he asked her to die. Or, she can serve her new Queen and let her love burn into vicious fury that will consume the man that did this to her.Other Information:
This is intentionally a much darker version of Giselle, my favorite ballet. I want the humiliation and dance to be a huge aspect of it, but I am negotiable on some of the darker aspects like the pregnancy. The suicide feels really romantic, though, so, please lemme keep that? And it doesn't really work without the ghosts... so, I guess for the sake of this game ghosts are solid enough to interact with physical entities, at least during the night.
I think whichever of us plays Myrtha should probably also play Albrect. Kind of competing doms over the submissive Giselle. And, as always, I would be willing to let Albrect be played as a female character, too.
