And by that I mean "Five Paragraphs" to make up for all the Friday Fives I've been missing. This narrative was written for a application for an rpg two years ago. Sicne I just joined a new game with said character, I figured I should post this here...since I never did? Oops?

Anyway, this is Aksel. He can control you. When he says dance, you dance. He's the Puppetmaster, bitches.

And he's not a nice guy. )

My post for today is locked due to smut but if you want to read it, it's posted unlocked over at [livejournal.com profile] bb_shousetu here.

On a random note, I've been considering collecting my [livejournal.com profile] bb_shousetu works into an ebook and putting it up for download (I guess on my website and here)to give my work more exposure. I am just not 100% sure that it's worth the effort, but I don't see that it can hurt. (I recently learned how to make an ebook and I'm intrigued). I just dunno if more than like 5 people would even download it. Or hey I could always pull it together as a collection and submit it to LT3 as well. It'd come to close to 45,000 words. Closer to 50K if I include one I wrote and didn't wind up submitting to [livejournal.com profile] bb_shousetu (yet. I might still at some point). Food for thought.

Also, spent my morning brainstorming stuff. Trying to get back into the right frame of mind for what I'm doing.

Probably the last snippet you're getting from this. Enjoy!

It's late when I get the text but it doesn't matter. I don't sleep like I used to anymore. Late nights on the job mean if I'm in bed at 1 AM, it's early for me. It's only a few minutes before midnight so the night owls are still just getting ready. I'd have thought I was too old for this by now, but seven months of casinos and blackjack a couple times a week means I've become one of them, in more ways than one. They trust me now.

With that in mind I get up, wash my face and shower, after sending back a quick response that I'd be there. I slick back my hair, the way I've been wearing it for seven months. It's not my hair. It's Robert's hair. It's Robert's face in the mirror, Robert's clothes I'm wearing, Robert's life I've been living since I went undercover. James feels like he's gone, buried under the perfectly cultivated facade. I don't know if I'd even recognize James anymore, if I can go back to being him when this is all over. I hope I can. I hope he isn't as far gone as I fear. I don't want to be Robert, but I can't stop now. The job isn't done.

Teaser

Another teaser. You probably can get an idea of what's going on in this, if you piece these together. Maybe. I am jumping around a bit with my teasers.

They're all in red velvet, though no two costumes are at all the same.

It's the one in the black satin yukata, shorter than any I've ever seen, worn open over a red velvet corset, that catches my eye. The short robe is barely recognizable as one, the way it's been cut and fitted to show off as much as possible without really showing anything at all. It's a rare and enticing level of modesty mixed with scandal and Kureno actually laughs at me when he sees where I'm looking.

"So you're not a eunuch. Good to know, I was starting to worry about you. That's Kana and be careful; he's Fujimoto's favorite. He never leaves the Red Velvet room."

In all the months I've been coming here I've showed no more than passing interest in the men and women who work the tables, just enough to keep from looking suspicious. But there's no acting at all going on as I watch Kana over at the bar mixing drinks. His robe rides up, just a little and I cough and look back at Kureno. "Fujimoto likes to keep him close?"

Kureno nods slowly and the gears start clicking. If Fujimoto bends anyone's ear here, it might be Kana's.


I broke 4000 words on this today, and hopefully I can actually get to the smut part so I can finish it in time to be betaed. Whew.

Random: I feel like I need a new mood theme already. I feel awkward posting about smut and then using a Calvin & Hobbes theme º///º

Here, have another from my [livejournal.com profile] bb_shousetsu story.

"Have you ever had ginger liqueur? I prefer Domaine de Canton. Mix it with Bourbon and a splash of lemon. It's called a Gold Rush. It's a little strong for me like that though, so I add a little club soda, top it with a cherry. I call it Fool's Gold."

"That sounds delicious," I respond sincerely. "I've never had the opportunity to try ginger liqueur before."

"I'll bring you one," Kana offers.

"Later," I reply. "I'd rather you didn't get up."

"Good. I didn't feel like moving either," Kana says and takes my hand, resting it on his thigh. His skin is warm, soft, and insanely distracting. I swallow hard and my voice is rougher than I'd like when I say, "You sure you're not just trying to make him jealous?"

Kana laughs again and leans in close again. His honeyed scent fills my nostrils and I know he can't miss my reaction, not the way he's in my lap. "I promise you, that's not what I'm doing," he whispers huskily. His mouth is so close to my ear that his lips brush it on the word 'promise' and his tongue grazes the shell of my ear when he's finished speaking. My hand goes tight on his thigh and he's the one who sucks in his breath.

Teaser!

Here's a wee teaser for you from my [livejournal.com profile] bb_shousetsu piece.

Kana's waiting for me that night when I'm getting ready leave. He's silent on his feet and quick as a cat. Before I know it, he's behind me, my jacket in his hands and those artfully smoky eyes looking up into mine. "Leaving so soon?"

My last drink was hours ago, so I can't blame alcohol for keeping my tongue tied. Kana laughs. "Tongue-tied again. Is it because you've got my undivided attention once more?" His fingers walk up my shirt, his slim hand wrapping around the knot in my tie. "I told you that if you were really good, you could have me. Well guess what, Robert?" He goes up on his toes, his lips against my ear again. "You were fantastic. You want to see how fantastic I can be?"

Eee! :D

I just wrote some more for [livejournal.com profile] bb_shousetsu and I'm really excited about this. I hope it turns out as good as I'd like. I'm trying to finish it this week to give betas time to critique and me time to fix. Then I want to finish my LT3 thing next week for the same reasons. Anyway, have a wee snippet:

I resolve to get as close to Kana as possible without arousing Fujimoto's jealously, and as Kureno and I pick a table I tell myself it's just business. I tell myself it's got nothing to do with Kana's long, pale legs, his small and secretive smile, his features that border so far on pretty that if Kureno hadn't made it clear he was a man, I'd have been guessing all night. I tell myself it's nothing to do with the sweet honeysuckle scent of his perfume as he comes over to our table, and everything to do with the fact that he might be a gold mine of information.

I tell myself I'm going to flirt and seduce because it's part of the job, and not because with a handful of words and light touch on my arm, Kana's already got me under his spell.

For the first month, I actually believe it.


Also ahaha thank you iTunes.

I finally have a real workable plot for my next [livejournal.com profile] bb_shousetsu story for the Hookers and Blackjack issue! I'll post a tidbit here, but as a reminder, most of my daily posts from now on (if they are daily) are going to be short snippets that don't give much away, since most of my writing this year will hopefully be for publication.

Julia Roberts was right. I should never have kissed him. The circumstance may have been completely different, but it mostly amounts to the same thing. 'Don't kiss on the mouth' was just a way of saying don't let feelings get involved. I should have listened. Falling in love was not supposed to be part of the job.


This story, assuming I can wrangle it into submission, will involve escorts, gambling, cover ups, business fronts, blackmail, undercover work, drug trades, and possibly slave trade. To make it work it has to have a lot of focus, detail, and research. And length. I don't think I can crap out on the length for this one. We'll see. I need to start writing it now that I have a real idea. Also needed: names for the three major players.
