Olivia’s Ass Toy, by kmiru0

It’s a well written story, except for the author’s decision to make one of the characters ambiguously gendered.  It’s marked as an FF story, but the submissive character (Robin) has a gender neutral name, and the author only uses plural pronouns when referring to the character (they and their).  It sticks out and is confusing at first. Additionally there are a few instances where the Robin character is called a “good boy” that made me have to go back and check the color codes to see if I was reading a green instead of a pink.

It’s a good story, but this choice by the author prevented me from really enjoying it.  I was taken out of the story too many times.

That doesn’t sound like an ambiguously gendered character so much as a nonbinary one. Still should probably be purple rather than red.

Subliminals and hypnosis can't really change someone's sexuality.

...I'm not sure that "realism" is a high priority for most authors on this archive.

Indeed, LOL.
I tend to look at hypnosis themes a little too seriously. As Shadra mentioned above, I often prefer things more fantastical as well. :) The story was quite tongue in cheek -- or tongue in something -- so it was definitely just built to be fun.

Hm. I don't know if it's good form, but... has anyone read my story, by chance? *twiddles fingers nervously*

I did. I read an earlier version, too, and gave you quite a lot of editing feedback, noticing that you used almost all of it.

But without crediting my efforts.

Speaking of good form, I appreciate that AWMBH and Mind Zapper, who I also provided quite a lot of editing feedback to and who submitted stories the same week, credited my efforts at the end of their stories. Even though AWMBH spelled my name wrong so Simon didn't hyperlink it.

That was one of the busier weeks I've ever had as an editor. My own writing still isn't back on track. I don't think I'll be doing quite so much of that again.

Arousal Inducing Audio (mc ff ma) (new)  by Synaptic Virus
Two girls experiment with sexy subliminals. Not realizing the messages are designed to slowly turn them lesbian.

The story was quite enjoyable, I found! I think I would have liked a bit more detail, getting into their thoughts and all, but for a short piece, the action was quite hot. Specifically, it would have been nice for there to be a bit more between the first and second chapters, instead of them just jumping back into listening to the audio. Even just knowing that maybe the subliminals conditioned them to want to listen again and not question things would have been great!

As for the other discussion, I guess I forgot that some people prefer the realistic aspects of hypnosis. Not sure why that surprised me, guess I've just read too many fantasy-type hypno stories. Though to be fair I think I prefer when things are allowed to be unrealistic.

Dead of Night (mc mf ff md fd) (1 new chapter)  by SoVeryFascinated
An actress responds well to a stage hypnosis show ... and so does someone else.

After Kat and Mouse, I was ecstatic to see another Fascinated story. The writing quality is top notch, which I've come to expect. Probably a bit more suspense/mystery than I prefer, but the damn story is still so intriguing (dare I say fascinating?) that I can't help but want to continue. I'm a bit surprised to hear there's only one more chapter, but if that means I'll finally get some answers, I'm all for it! Can't wait!

I agree, but hypnosis and subliminal conditioning can drag things up out of the dark recesses of denial and make it seem as if change has been brought about...

Considering a piece of peer-reviewed research carried out in Canada a few years ago, I'd say that this story has a little more realism than many of you (including the author) suspect!

hurray! new chapters no-one will read! :D

;)

I guarantee, each story posted gets many thousands of reads (even if you get zero comments). Simon doesn't share the data, but from my experience with comparable sites which do, the ratio is like 10,000:1 reads to comments.

The EMCSA would be well served with a "like/dislike" button.

Agreed. If nothing else, it would help authors gauge interest in their stories. Without thread comments or email messages, it can be very difficult to tell if anyone is reading at all. Particularly now when the updates are getting bigger.

I'd like a count of hits, but I'm not sure about ratings necessarily. They are subjective and deal with kinks instead of writing quality at times. And then they're are the trolls...

I'm with Softi on this - some sort of indication of hits would be useful...  If only to reasure me that someone was reading my rubbish!

Considering the intent and style of the archive, I very much doubt Simon is going to introduce something as Web 3.0-y as a thumbs-button. :P

I agree with this so much and would have said basically the same thing. It's not necessary, and the simplicity of the EMCSA is what makes it special. We don't need *everything* in society to have a damned "Like" button attached to it.

If you/we get feedback, especially by email, treasure it if it happens 'cause it can be a rare thing. As for stats on how many hits a given story has had, nah, I don't think that would do well for authors either.

Besides, we're not writing for other people, correct? ;)

Is she... made of wood?

It's quite plausible, but you'll have to wait for the conclusion to find out for sure!
