Day 20.1

It's been close to a week since i posted. It's because it's been a really slow week, mostly. And i talked to Master about everything, so it felt redundant to put it in the journal.

i'm so angry right now, i could chew rebar and spit nails. i fucking hate fighting, so i refuse. i fucking refuse.

Master goes from zero to pissed in 2.5 seconds. When I broached the subject of Bella, the most I got was some strange personal vendetta and accusations, and his instructions were to tell her to go fuck herself. I said I wouldn't do that. I decided to drop it and ask if I should pull out of Kiss's room to give him my attention, only to be confronted with:

Quinn
"Right now, i'm pretty pissy.‏
So the likeliness of anything being all that fun around me is slim to nil.‏"

So, fine. Be pissy. It's not like i'm subjected to -your- schizophrenic moods or anything.‏ And he has -no- idea why i'm frustrated and losing my normal implacable calm.‏ And in the middle of this, I forget to ask permission to enter Master's room. That He invited me to. And then told me to sit down.‏ So fuck it. I shut down IMVU.‏ GAH.

It's not in my personality to tell someone else to go fuck themselves. The very idea of, after applauding and encouraging me to stick to etiquette and careful speech, Master asking me to do that makes me so angry i could just cry. i'm not the kind of person who listens to what everyone else has to say about someone. i make my own decision on whether i like someone or something. It's part of being opinionated, something Master said He liked. Master's temper drives me through the freaking roof. Not that -i- didn't threaten bodily harm to people when i was younger and more hot-headed, but someone told me once that threatening to do something i wouldn't truthfully do lessened my impact, not added to it. It sank in. i usually view things with a very critical eye. 

xavi called attention to my training yesterday, too. i admitted that while yes, i had been impeccably trained, no one had bothered refining it in a long time. It makes me rusty. And Master, while voicing His wishes, does not train me. His wishes change constantly. i try to keep up, i really do. 

Master's looking for a Dominare. A Daddy Dom. While i'm thrilled about this, Master seems to consider me a teddy bear, when in fact we're a package deal. Whether His new Daddy gives me orders or not is irrelevant. It's a new force in our lives that affects both of us. Not that i'm not still dealing with guilt over the other two that Master had when i came in. 

i think perhaps the thing that made me lose my temper the most is seeing something that i had to excise from myself in Master. Once, i was the kind of person who allowed others to immediately impact my world. i hadn't learned to let it flow from me yet. When you give your irritations the right to make your day terrible, you give them too much power. So, because Master is pissy, all the plans and the light and the happiness of spending the day with Him is gone. Because yet something else made him upset. He does not have control of himself, and as such i am left, once again, feeling frustrated. And no, not sexually. For fucks sake, it's not all or nothing. i've been laid, both mentally and physically. My libido does not control me.

Though the thought that all the light is gone means that plans are once again put off to another day because of something Master let get to him. And he just had me fill out this ungodly long questionnaire of kinks. 

The WHIPLASH, GODDESS. Mein Gott, the whiplash.

And because i'm refusing to get into a fight with Master, i've been told to write it all out. So here. Written. 

i love my Master. i love my Master. i love my Master.

Day 14.1

i'm actually on break for the weekend, outside of writing and doing basic publicity maintenance.

The main thrust of today is Sinister! It's a goth club that springs into being every so often, as though on the back of a giant turtle. Within its walls live music and memories, disappearing again at dawn in a splash of reality and without knowledge of its return. Behold the mighty! In truth, i am -so- excite. *lapses into doge in excitement*

i'm going to wear my collar and manacles proudly today, Master. It'll be the first time in public.

*thinks happy and devoted thoughts to his Master*

Day 13.1

The last few days have been a rush. i hit a manic and went super-productive.

For those just tuning in, i'm a manic depressive. It's a strange place, but it's home.

i had a unique perspective on my manic this time. It lasted for 2 days and i not only felt very productive, but aggressive as well. i was more comfortable in traditionally Dominant roles and found myself directing the household with peak efficiency. i even took a more active rather than passive role with Master. The submissive Guardsman or Protector is a role i'm usually pretty comfortable in, and the little Master has felt particularly needy and shota of late. i don't mind. It pleases me to make Him happy.

So, bills today. Only three days on the paycheck. It's going to be a bit tight.

Sinister this weekend! i'm going to wear my collar proudly for the first time. i could just dance.

Day 10.2

As a crown and caveat to the day, i finally got the last of the detritus for The Beast within done! i am having celebratory beer. Well, Bud Light and Clammato, which is also GOD. *squees*


Day 10.1

Got a headache today. Didn't feel like going grocery shopping, so it'll wait. The Husbear cleaned out the bank account again anyway. i swear he has the money management skills of a toddler. i never want to hear -again- that anyone but me should keep track of the money. i swear no bill would ever get paid. *affectionate laugh*

Late start on work today, though. i have to get the .pdf and .epub done today, but after that, The Beast Within will be out in the world, and off my desk!

The art came in for Skin and Bones. SO happy with it. Now i just need to get the text on it and up on the site. The work's already through edits. Resistance was sent off to content yesterday! Things might just lighten up. That makes me so happy!

...Master said today he's considering releasing Tai. It makes me sad, because i know Master cares about Tai deeply. However, i'm also...somehow relieved. Master needs less stress in His life. He's changed, or so i'm told. xavi had a conversation with me a few days ago, and it was much needed. he's a wonderful person. However, he's pulling away from Master. i don't want to see their relationship end, but xavi's hurting. he asked me to talk to Master about it when i talked about the 'sex thing', but i haven't found an opportunity to talk yet. Maybe tonight. *Sigh* i don't want to be in the middle of the Master/xavi thing. They're a good pair. i'm just worried about Master. Then again, that's kind of my job description. *laughs*

Ah, it'll be fine. i'm sure things will work out.

Day 9.1

Today was a busy one.

i woke up at 6:45 a.m. and got straight to work. i didn't stop until 7 pm. Then, a bit of Numbers, and then online for a little bit.

Master had D&D tonight. He was mildly impaired when He got home, or so i'm told. So...i got online, and i think He passed out. o.o Tai got upset for some reason and left the room in a hurry, signed on to his Taitsu profile, and went and hid in his 'upset room'? Weird. Maybe because Master went black.

Ah, well. i'll send Master a text to wake up to and kiss Him metaphorically. i'm having a very good day. Long work day ahead again tomorrow, but the Beast Within is finally up for sale! Yay.

Day 8.1

So, Master gave me permission to skip the last few days. Firstly, we had a long talk re: the last post, and then yesterday was review day.

Master offered me his collar, and i accepted.

The scene the Husbear promised me never happened. In fact, he hasn't even mentioned it. He offered me his collar on Valentine's Day, and i turned him down. The truth is that he burned out 3 years ago. In those subsequent three years, i've lost a good deal of my respect for the man, since i've had to make all the decisions and lead the household. i've fucking forgotten how to live submissively. i can't do it without giving in to fear and anxiety. i'm missing my pills terribly. All i can think about is what's going to go wrong if i'm not paying attention. To let it go is something i've forgotten how to do. It's killing me.

i've been on a roller coaster for days. Throwing out Anna, getting in the new rescues. The house is swirling around my head. my work is swirling around my head. i want to write so badly, but nothing's coming, and when i start to look towards work, i know i'm behind and other things get pushed in front of my face. i need to just do this shit and get it done. This is ridiculous. It's all fucking ridiculous. i'm clingy, and weepy, and depressed, and ecstatic, and hopeful, and FUCK.

And that's my Boss calling. Oh, go to hell. *headdesk*

i shouldn't say things like that. i know we're doing well at the con where she's at. We're selling books and making money. Money that i hopefully will see some return on. o.o Text.

Great. Two more novels in the inbox. June just filled up.

The issue with Tai is a whole different ballgame. Goddess, i'm trying. And i'm the new kid on the block, and i don't have any room to talk, and i want to just reach out, flex the Alpha muscles, and wrap him up under my wing. Fuck if i know how that would go.

It doesn't help that my former friend won't speak to me on IMVU. As in my former submissive. Perhaps she's going through another phase where i'm the devil. That hurts more than i can say, but i don't have the will to take action on it. She's going to do what she's going to do and that's that.

Aaaand Master's tied up my hands. It's training. i know it's training. And it's nice to feel something steel within Him all of a sudden. But right now the only thing going through my mind is, "Oh, so we're doing this now. Huh." Which isn't a good headspace. A lot of my training was based on verbal acuity that matched bodily stance. Without the stance, i feel almost naked. Being stripped of tools when i'm having trouble finding my toolbelt is hell. i should trust Him, and i do. i really do. But i do not trust Tai yet. He's temperamental at best, even with Master, and i don't feel the ability to rely on him to be my arms. He got very quiet when Sir asserted his Dominance, and then excused himself. It smacks of him being pretty pissed off at having his legs hobbled. How can i rely on a brother who seems to unequivocally hate me on base principle? i can't. i'll just have to try and do my best. Just...just another line item of things to deal with.

Fuck.

Day 5.2

i've been having a hard time putting my feelings into words, so when i finally managed to talk it out with a friend, it made more sense to just copy/paste the conversation.

Stormie Maria Nugent
aww someones in a good mood :3

me
An ambivalent one, if i'm honest with myself.‏

Stormie Maria Nugent
oh?‏why all the confliction?‏

me
*nods* i'm feeling needy and clingy at the moment. i'm simultaneously deliriously happy to be in the company of a new friend and tormented with circuitous thoughts on Sir. i'm a little afraid to write them out in the journal, but i know i must.‏

Stormie Maria Nugent
*nods* how come you feel that way?‏

me*blinkblink* Which one?‏

Stormie Maria Nugentthe torment‏

me
*sighs* Maybe if i talk it out, i'll feel better.‏
Let's see if i can put this into words.‏
i'm feeling the shifting of honeymoon to the meat behind. i find myself deeply attracted to my Sir. i love feeling close to Him. i am concerned about his lover, Devon, who's been making serious passes at me, and i have no idea how to handle it. Sir gave me some very broad outlines, but He's a particularly lazy Sir. So when i push Him, He mostly ignores it because of the loose leash He's had to keep with the others. They're still avoiding me with a vengeance. While we've role-played, we've never had a session, and = he lets just about anything play with His temper, and it plays havoc with my emotions. Our schedules are reversed, which means either i'm left staying up at all hours, or he's trying to be awake during the day, which results mostly in Him sleeping through the day and nothing being achieved.‏
And, unfortunately by its own nature, there is little that disappoints a slave more than an inattentive Master. It's just fact, no matter how many excuses i feed myself.‏

Stormie Maria Nugent
*nods* sounds like you and Quinn need to have a talk and decide if staying is in your best interests, cuz thats a lot of negatives going on‏

me*sighs* i don't want to leave. Leaving hadn't really occurred to me. i care about Sir deeply, and i haven't been happier in a year. But i can't presume to ask for Him to change.‏

Stormie Maria Nugent
*nods* does he know what is bothering you?‏

me
i'm not sure if I've been clear, no. And that's -my- fault. But He's in such a mood all the time. Either bouncing and through the stratosphere, or grouchy and not in a mood to really talk.‏
*laughs* And -terribly- distractable.‏

Stormie Maria Nugent
lol ya very much bipolar and likely adhd‏

me
Oh, He knows He is. Even when we were supposed to be having a 'checkup', he couldn't focus.‏

Stormie Maria Nugent
aww :(

me
And i feel terrible because here i am complaining to You. *sighs* i don't mean to.‏

Stormie Maria Nugent
its ok hun, i dont mind at all :3
i tend to be a therapist of sorts to my friends‏

me
i usually do too.‏
i'm thinking about just copy/pasting this conversation into the journal for Him.‏

Stormie Maria Nugent
its up to you hun, i dont mind‏

me
If I've actually gotten it all out for once. *smiles*
---

i don't know. i feel conflicted. And stupid, because i'm clingy today. It's Valentine's Day. 

Day 5.1

Today has been busy and slow all at the same time. Thursdays usually are.

Photo editing that didn't bear much fruit. Did an intake with Sir. Boss did the galley edits for this weekend's release, which puts the formatting in my ballpark. i'll start on it tonight and finish it tomorrow. It's due Saturday.

Sir's had a day of it. He lay down for a nap.

i always feel sad when Sir's in a bad mood. It's difficult for me.

Building a room on IMVU. Got paid today. Nothing much else to report, aside from the incoming parade on Saturday. *headdesk* Moving the office into the bedroom in the next day or so.

Day 4.1

So, i missed yesterday. i was in bed before i went to bed, not online.

Yesterday, i did an awful lot of random work. Website touches, formatting dealies, etc. Filtering through emails. Sir was grouchy and went to bed. i got down. The Husbear was sent home from work early, and ended up doing something really nice for me.

He took me in, rubbed me down, made me laugh and smile. He's always known exactly what to do for me to make me happy again - twould be why i married the man. Got to talk to him about a lot of things. He's giving me a session for Valentine's Day. This makes me happier than i can say. His ex-girlfriend burned him out on D/s relationships. It's hard for him to muster feelings of Dominance, even though he loves me and that was part of our original relationship. i asked him how he felt about me having a Sir. He said that he knows he'll never be able to be there quite how i need someone to be, and that's he's happy i found someone. It made me ecstatic. There were some fun times, and by the time fun was over, i was exhausted and passed out.

So today, i'm running away. i'm going to work with the Husbear. There's nothing that can't be accomplished tomorrow, and i'm possessed of a terrible dunwanna in favor of spending a day with him, while he wants me.

Jimmy's formatting, the covers, and the .epub can just freaking wait.

Day 2.1

It has been a really long day.

Today, i worked like crazy. i did the intake on a horror erotica (yuck) and made two art covers.




i should have kept going. i should have pushed. But i was so emotionally wrecked. 

So i watched a movie with my niece and cuddled up. Gamed with the roommate. Interesting character, this one. Very shota. 

When Sir got back from D&D at 9:30, He said He was going to take a nap and text me when He woke up. It's now 3:30 in the morning. i can't stay up any longer - i'm exhausted. Worked on IMVU for a while, talking to Cain and shopping. i'm sorry, Sir. i know You wanted me to be around, but i think You passed out for the night.

i hate having opposing schedules to Sir. But my work schedule can't change...and He has others to care for as well. i'm just being silly, i suppose. Bad me.

Goodnight, Sir.

Sunday, February 9, 2014

Day 1.2

Gamed all day. Did pretty much nothing. Hung with Anna. Going to bed early- tomorrow is going to be terrifying. Two intakes, a cover art, galley edits, and purchasing art for another cover, as well as starting on .epub for the rest of the stock. Ugh. This work week will be short and hard.

Day 1.1

i was given an assignment today, to start a blog for my Sir.

Sweetie, I've decided what your first -project- is going to be. I want you to pick a writing program like MS Word or a blog site like Tumblr, and start a journal dedicated fully to you. It should include things that you've done that day, something funny, sad, or silly, something that made you angry or depressed, or just worth remembering. I'd like these entries to be nightly, probably right before bed- or small jabbering at any point in the day. Use as much detail as you can. You can include pictures, chatlogs, books, quotes, movies, anything you want. But I want it to be honest and heartfelt, even if it's just a fast "Hung out on IMVU with ____, ____, and ____ today. We sat around and goofed off as usual. Nothing else really happened, but it was a decent day."

I want to review these every seven days, preferably during review day until your trial is finished, to what ever end, or what have you. I'll give feedback, ask and answer questions, address and issues and we'll discuss them as needed. If you want to send me an entry early, that's fine. But I'd prefer a week by week, mass document. <3"

i've always failed at blogs and journals. It's not in me to remember to keep these kinds of things. i always feel like i have nothing to say of any import. i sit there and stare at the screen and all i see is whiteness, and it just feels like reruns.

But i'll try, for my Sir.
