Quote from: Dirigible on July 28, 2010, 09:28:45 PMThe Gift [Bon]When trying to win a major contract or concession in business these days, it's not uncommon to ply the other party with presents ('bribes' is such an ugly word, don't you think?); drink, travel, front row tickets to the big game. In this case, though, the negotiation team found out that the man they were trying to woo into making a deal had another, more specific interest. When he got back to his hotel room that night, he found a gift waiting on the bed, all wrapped up in ribbons and ropes: a young female member of the negotiation team, with a yen to be bound and to submit... his for the night... or longer, if he could draw out the bargaining.
Quote from: Dirigible on July 31, 2010, 07:44:44 PMAfter the Masque Was Over [Van to Bon]Fancy dress and a masque can conceal who you are from others, but not who you are inside. They can be outward projections of your subconscious desires; and when you meet someone whose desires complement your own, the passions unleashed last longer than it takes to retire to a private room and tear the costumes off each other and succumb to them...
Quote from: Dirigible on July 26, 2010, 01:57:28 PM1001 Slavish Nights [Bon]Very loosely inspired by 1001 Arabian Nights. There is a man who has caused quite a scandal in the city's BDSM and fetish community. Rumours are spreading fast about his heartlessness and appetites; the string of slave-girls he has dismissed, exhausted and broken by his cruel punishments and seemingly unreachably high standards for service. It's starting to become quite unseemly, but he is wealthy, influential, a powerful patron of many in the community; not someone that can just be ostracised. Only one submissive has the courage to attempt to thaw his icy heart, to offer herself to this ruthless and demanding dom in a quest to redeem him and find her perfect master.Potential Themes, Occurrences and Plots: Uncovering the cause of the emotional turmoil that drives him; her motivations for seeking him as a master or seeking the cause of his behaviour; intrigue in the BDSM community; the negotiations of relationships between the twilight world of the scene and the vanilla daylight of day to day.
QuoteWhen you're a thief for hire, there are certain things you get used to stealing: antiques, works of art, priceless jewels. One-of-a-kind prototype quantum computers? Not so much. In the end, he wasn't sure if he stole the device, or if it hijacked his life.To be honest, Lukas Stone kind of zoned out when his client, the multi-billion-dollar innovation powerhouse Aleph corporation explained exactly what he was meant to be stealing: all he knew was the lab's address and that it looked like a funky, high-tech wristwatch. That the heist went so smoothly should have been his first clue something was up: because with its nonlinear problem solving, ability to remotely access any data on the planet and nigh-infinite calculation speed, the computer was a nascent artificial intelligence, and it wanted to be stolen. Not only could the Q-Comp brute-force any cryptography known to man, but through subatomic observation and measurement it could influence the vector collapses of probability states... and manipulate chance. It had cleared the way for Lukas, ensuring doors and windows happened to be unlocked, inducing an unfortunate heart attack in its inventor... and crashing a car into the thief's client as he tried to drop the Q-Comp off at the rendezvous.Since then, his life has been a joyride of luck and misfortune, thanks to the Q-Comp's cruel sense of humour and voyeuristic tendencies. A few spins of the roulette wheel are all it takes to make a fortune – but it slips out of his hands just as fast. Beautiful women all but fall into his lap, inevitably bringing with them a double-fistful of problems. The electronic djinn flings him around the world from one perilous encounter and ludicrous coincidence to another, with Lukas trying to dig his heels in to stop the show or at least steer it to his advantage.
