Of Vampires, Work and MaST

I’m Tired.

It has been a long week full of emotional vampires at work, but I am lucky enough to have amazing regulars that make the nights go by much faster.

I work in a vape shop, and at 35 I am (when the 20 year old college student is done) youngest member of the staff by at least 10 years. Now, my little fae is 8 years older than me, however she is young at heart, and not stuffy or (overly) stubborn. To me Vaping is a passion something that I carry with me into every sale, from a person just getting their start to get off cigarettes,  to the Builders that come in and cloud chase.

My co-workers aren’t as excited about this – Nor knowledgeable, and it wears on me to constantly be asking questions related to the Technical side of our product. My Regulars make it much more bearable to keep my energy up, because we are ALL excited about vaping, building and everything vape related. the alst 2 hours of my shift were spent talking vaping with 5 or 6 regulars that came in and Cloud chasing with them, the front of the store was fogged out and smelled of all manner of deliciousness.

So now I am off until Monday with a trip into the City to attend MAsT, which I am excited for, as it means time with my little fae. Related to that – W/we have been asked to present next month on Living 24/7, I am both excited to share my thoughts and terrified, and also perplexed a bit on having to do so. My little fae has MANY years in this lifestyle, and is a wealth of knowledge – I do have a wealth of knowledge, however there is a small part of me that wonders if I am “good” enough to stand in front of some who have almost double (if not triple) my years in the lifestyle.

Just a Quick “how’s it going” From me, my Brain is Mush, so off to call My little fae after -her- emotional vampire leaves, make some food and vape/relax a bit.

Rest well and Regards,

Dear Canvas Maker – you made Da Vinci Famous.

Every so often I come across something that makes me either laugh or shake my head depending on the day…. Today I had a moment that made me do both.

Last night my little Fae and I got to “play”, I use quotations because it most certainly was much more – Probably our hardest scene to date, her ass is currently riddled with needle pricks on top of 70-ish lashes with the belt.

I was understandably happy with my handy work and So I took a few “after pictures”, one of which I shared on fetlife to friends only. Now my Friends list isn’t massive, I prefer to keep it to people I have either met in person, or interact with on a regular basis. however a DOZEN pictures like this were posted the night before, from an event we had’nt been able to attend by women who had scenes in the dungeon, So I figured my little fae and I would add to them.

So, I posted the Pic and went to bed thinking I would check to see if there were comments etc.

1 “love”, just one.

Now I’m not out for attention, or to whore approval, but as I was thinking about it, it brought to light an interesting comparison. My little fae’s Friendslist is only 12 people bigger and 12 different people other than I have, HOWEVER I have notcied she gets much more interaction than I do, for very similar pictures, and I got to thinking.

Most average guys like me are on fet to meet people, gain knowledge and the Like, however in order to get interaction on thier profile I can -almost- understand the multitude of cock pics. It may be semi negative attention from women, but it’s still attention.

So why is it, that on Fetlife on Friends only posts, that I see so much more attention lavished on women ? as opposed to the person whoi did the Spanking/Whipping/Flogging etc ?

After all, sometimes all the Sub does is Bring the Canvas – it’d be like crediting the Canvas maker for the Mona Lisa instead of Da Vinci.

 

Random thought, but it’s tickling my Brain.

We Need Them on Board.

As a Master, I have quite a few rules that I expect my slave to follow, some of them are hard, and she doesn’t like them, but she does it because she loves me. Other rules are easy and natural to us. Some of her rules are counter-intuitive to the slave mindset.

One of these particular rules springs to mind due to a fellow Masters current situation – he and his girls also happen to be among some of the closest friends we have, and they have opened their house and hospitality to us numerous times when we visit their city.

My little fae’s rule is this – You are to take care of me, that means everything, including looking out for my health, and speaking up if Sir’s choice is not exactly in the best interests of keeping him healthy.

Most D-types, and some S-types might see this as an indication that I have no place being a Master, Dom or any other D-type if I don’t have ALL my shit in order – and for those people I have two words: Fuck you. We’re all human, creatures of comfort and impulse – if we were all 100% perfect all the time what a boring existence this would be.  I digress.

Dot follows this directive quite well, and in offering her opinion, still does so respectfully and with my best interests at heart, 99% of the time I listen since I value her judgement and opinion.

With that, she also supports my choices 100% and is always on board to join me in whatever I choose. When we met, she was a vegetarian, who I slowly converted to the meat-side – and when I went Paleo she jumped in with both feet to support me, and as such we have both benefited.

As a D-type, we need the support and involvement of our S-types even when sometimes we don’t ask. Anticipatory service is part and parcel of what I consider to be a good S-type, and what better way to anticipate the needs of your D-type than to join them in their journey – be that Diet, exercise, or (non-kink) lifestyle choices.

As D-types, sometimes we need to put on our Dom-pants and drag them along for purely selfish reasons because WE NEED THEM. I don’t think it is out of the realm of reason to even tell them that (*gasp!*) it doesn’t affect your dominance, in fact it might even reinforce it.

“The healthy and strong individual is the one who asks for help when he needs it. Whether he’s got an abscess on his knee or in his soul.” -Rona Barrett

Just some food for thought.
