I've been thinking on specific ideas for stories where I could try playing a mind-controller... There's one idea I keep coming back to.
Basically, it's a mind control take on the "New Home" idea from my main ideas thread (you can find it in my signature). The way I see it, it would involve a community where people live according to strict, Victorianesque norms: women wear long dresses, sex is frowned upon, traditional gender roles are observed etc. In this story, a young woman from outside would arrive to this community... and would discover that the people in this strict community are being mind-controlled to be this way. And then, she would be taken in for her own dose of brainwashing!
Our story would tell of her transformation from a modern-minded woman to another puritanically-minded inhabitant of the community.
Yes, I know it's not the way typical mind control stories go :) Quite often, mind control stories are about prudish women being changed into bimbos etc. But I have a thing themes like strictness, enforced conformity etc., so I prefer to take things the other way around!
In fact... we might *literally* make a prude-to-bimbo story in reverse. How about the female character being very liberated sexually, or maybe some sort of sex addict? We could make a story of somebody transforming her into a more "respectable" person. It could use the "Victorianeque community" idea, or it could be something else? How about, say, a young heiress who likes to, uhm, sleep around - and is taken for "re-education" by her frustrated conservative family?
Just some specific ideas I thought I'd share... Any takers?
