how would you write a /d/ worthy story from first person point of view of a girl who wakes up in her own bed with sore pussy and realizes that she was hypnotized and raped last night but can't remember a thing

It would be a story taking place after the hot part, so you'll need something hot for her to do afterwards. Maybe there's still effects from the hypnosis. Maybe she has to do some detective work to find out more of what happened, maybe finding other still hypnotized girls, and why she was allowed to leave in the first place. Whatever you do, don't have her just confront the hypnotist and get hypnotized again, it'd be no different than if you just told the story of the first time she got hypnotized.

Not into Feminization, but Harley herself looks nice, would be better with her riding her new hypnotized toy ss.
>>
>>9991790
The first thing I'd do is make sure she's not done with the hypnosis. Like the other guy already said, you'd be writing after the part we'd normally want to see, so drag out the hypno; have some suggestions she's struggling (and sometimes failing) to fight consciously, and some only the reader picks up on. Say, for example, the idea of being hypnotized makes her hot and she resists the urge to schlick, but saying or hearing the phrase "mind control" makes her rub her legs together a bit without realizing it.

This path has surely been trod before, but I think I'd have her investigating who did this to her, then put together a team to take the scumbag down... only without realizing why/justifying it mentally, she did some suggestibility tests and put together a team of easily hypnotized babes who totally won't meet the same fate. There's still plenty of wiggle room to how the ending goes from there.

The gender ratio of /d/ as a whole is going to be 95:5 m:f (mtf counts as m). I doubt any thread here will ever be within in a lightyear of gender parity. Gives you an idea of how things stand really.

Having been a hypnotist for years it is pretty heavily slanted with 90% of the people who have approached me being men wanting to be sissies. This is even when I specifically say I'm only interested in biological females. The whole trans movement has made it worse with MTFs thinking I'll be fooled and crying foul when I reject them.

The girls who are into it somehow mostly end up being fat. But there have been a few attractive women bent to my will over the years.

Shouldn't be acceptance, more like complete breakdown of their minds and erasure of their "self".

I mean, you don't need to be the girl to do that. Guys have brains as well, so maybe wanting to be a woman is weird since it's not required. That doesn't really matter though, you're hanging out with weirdos anyway.

I wouldn't go that far, but I definitely see the appeal. Hypnosis and mind control are best treated as perils, some horrible, terrifying thing the victim has to struggle with all their might to escape, and total erasure would definitely qualify as that.

Why are there so damn few good works when it comes to this topic? I'm not into the public humiliation or softcore hypno or "eat this dickcheese" sort of shit; that stuff just comes off as... dumb. Breaks the mood completely, not to mention generally makes the art look crap. And with what I know of hypnosis and neurology... I guess I have a suspension of disbelief problem.

I like "proper" mind control. Parasites, devices. Preferably with hints of not just NC but subversion and corruption. And any additional body- and situational horror, psychological aspects, deceit and so forth just add so much more spice.

Think about it; If you got to reprogram your Van Halen teacher or Stacy's Mom, or put a little biocomputer parasite in a colleague or classmate, and had control of her... Would you make her piss her tits at a family dinner? Fuck no. That'd leave her an undesirable, despicable mess, and who the shit wants that? No, you'd let her carry on with her hubby or boyfriend and family as though nooothing was out of place. And then make her give you BJs and get knocked up with your kid all crafty on the side, maybe capture a few of her friends...

The ultimate MC is when the victims are even aware that they're under your control. They are just so far gone that they can't even do anything about it - or even better, they've been twisted so they're sadomasochistically enjoying it, and are now in on the game.

Eh, it's a so-so. It's suboptimal, sure. But it is still delicious enough if you have the proper emphasis on the replacement deceiving her friends and relations, and sadistically glorying in its takeover and likely doing very naughty things with its new housing.

Still, you're right. Better and much more delicious if it's more something like the original slowly being absorbed. BEST if the original consciousness doesn't even go away, and perhaps doesn't even clearly feel or protest any difference, but simply experiences how she is being controlled and having her thoughts and actions led at various levels. As if the thing is sort of "wearing" her, perhaps.

"Not for the first time, she found herself staring perhaps a bit more intently than what might have seemed normal. Sort of trying to suss something out there. Yes, she knew that the thing didn't so much 'feel' or quite think for itself; that was the point of it. And that it nevertheless was aware of every bit of her, including the attention and thoughts. Not least since they were what it used for itself, to fill in the blank spot of awareness aside from its own deliberate design.

But perhaps it was a good thing. Some kind of way of stabilizing herself, reinforcing her discovered feelings of her situation. And she just couldn't help it. Staring into the mirror. And, looking into her own eyes, somehow in the vaguest sense feeling something else, also peering back out there from behind them. Wondering.

Did the thing do more than just 'process' the thoughts? She at least felt like it did, and she hoped so. And if so, she hoped that it truly understood. That it got the sense of appreciation. That there was some satisfaction there.

She hoped that, if it could be, it was satisfied with its life, its face. With the mind that was thinking those thoughts. She was glad that it had found her, and set her right. And for all she knew she would have thought before, she was relieved and cherished that it had claimed its body. Formerly hers - as though that had ever rightfully been the case.

She quirked a lip just a hair in a warming expression at her reflection. Not able to completely place the satisfaction with it or herself, but knowing either way that it was right.

She was so grateful to it, for letting her stay. For giving her purpose and letting her be useful. Even allowing her to use its body and act out that former life under its supervision, when it wasn't explicitly in control..."

I've been crafting a character for about the last year that is a Pathfinder intellect devourer inhabiting the body of a drow fighter. I wrote one publicly visible short story and have been doing back-and-forth sessions (that I guess constitute roleplay) with someone to further develop things and even got some art done. The primary theme from my perspective is deception, and ultimately parasitic integration into the environment at large.

I'd post the art but it's just of the fighter with tentacles bursting out of her face, there's no implied mind control and the other piece is just her posing with some of her "companions" (read: dominated thralls).

Because so many artists don't give a fuck about plot, so when they make a mind control thing, it inevitably ends up as half a page of "oh no don't brainwash me", half a page of "my brain is being turned stupid", and 39 pages of "I love you and want to be fucked stupid by you because I'm a brainwashed slut!"

Tasty. Been a little while since I did any stuff like that myself, but I write a lot just for kicks. I'm such a goddamn woman that the story and fridge logic and intellectual guff are basically as much part of the turn-on for me as art and depictions are. Hence the ragging on badly thought out ideas and plot or obtuse scenarios...

Presently, last I played and what I'm now writing some short story stuff about is another character in a homebrew based (very loosely...) off of CoC 7E who essentially progressed from being a pawn villain in one campaign, to being a PC, who has essentially kinda become John Carpenter's "Thing". There's a crapton of backstory, of course, but the basic thing was to go into the philosophy of "What is choice and ego anyway?" and exploring a lot of character conflict, overlaid with elements of narrative uncertainty - because that character was purposely written so that we never get to see what goes on in its thoughts (and there's even ambiguity and exploration as to whether if it even DOES think in anything like the self-aware way we would recognize). The drama comes from when the thing basically tries to "learn goodness despite itself," after some buildup clashing with another character, and then takes the place of a woman from a group of people hunting it in some kind of attempt at "mending things," after she gets killed accidentally despite its attempts to escape them without incident. Thing is of course, that she has a family and life, and after a whole year has passed her husband finds out...

>>10016219
Eh, true. But then again, what's worse? Have you seen some of these doujins? Maybe if given the choice, one would take being dead over having to do some of the things, with some of the people, the way certain characters are depicted. Pic related.

>>10016606
My biggest question is what is worse between actual snuff and ego death like pic related?
>>
>>10016606
If they want to die or not, doesn't matter. Actually having them die is a turn off, at least for my personal taste.
Of course, I think my personal favorite is dehumanizing, humiliation, living furniture, etc. But can still wipe their memory of it so they can return to daily life, and then make them remember suddenly for existential horror before blanking them again or the like.

What if they make a backup of the girl's mind that's uploaded back into her head after they destroy it?
>>
>>10016646
I guess this is getting into philosophy of the self. If it's the brain and the neurons are just purged/restored, that's fine. Since once it's restored, it's the same consciousness. Thus the person is back whole.
What it sounds like you're talking about is kinda a mind cloning, which isn't the same. And gets into the realm of are clones different from the original, and is someone expendable if there's a clone, etc etc.
Personally, cloned or not I know I don't want my current mind to come to an end, even knowing a copy will be around, it's a copy, it's not the original, it's not "me".

So is the "girl's consciousness not existing anymore" aspect of it the turn off, or is it that cases like the parasite girl come off more as a necrophilia than mind control, kinda like a zombie? I know that's splitting hairs, but I'm curious to what specific aspect you would say is the turn off.
>>
>>10016656
>>
>>10016657
Necrophilia. The body isn't dying, but the person is dead.
Girl's consciousness being completely dead for good is a slight turn off, but that depends on the context and the scenario. Being a vegetable isn't much better, but it is slightly. I guess all blank slates are ego death, and I find that hot, but I enjoy having them being able to come back. Usually for tormenting them. But I'm also a wimp and I'm not into prolapsed body parts, etc either that's common with the more hardcore "They're literally a braindead vegetable now" stories.

Yea, all cases of ego death are pretty fucked. I personally don't find it as bad if the victim technically survives via their consciousness not being obliterated, but from any pratical sense, the person they once were is gone for good regardless. It is a bit hot to me though, and I find the concept of someone being brainwiped to have a different sense of identity while technically still being alive pretty appealing, albeit pretty dark.

See, this is what I'm talking about liking mental erasure as peril. It's not about her being turned into a vegetable, it's about the merciless countdown, her final panic being cut off like nothing, the real casual way the auctioneer announces that she's about to become a mindless piece of meat. That's hot as shit.
Of course, then she actually does turn into said meat. And there's the problem. The leadup to the mental snuff is hot, and you do need that presence or implication of mental snuff for it to be hot, but the actual snuff itself is absolutely not. It's frustrating, but I don't think it can be helped.

This ends right fuckin' here. I'm going to donate so much stuff, and then become a pediatrician. Wanna get married, since you know what I am? I really feel like this woman could use some honesty..."

Nah, you're dating a slug pupetting a zombie body.
Would rather just be hypno sadist with the girl, if they were shitty before makes the sadism harder.
I just can't into death. And I'm a fan of ryona.

Better rez, though still slightly smaller than full.

Snuff implies permanence. And that's the issue; it has to be real for the situation to have any bite. Any kind of copout just makes it less hot. Hell, even the mental backup thing >>10016646 and >>10016651 subtract from that a little.

That and the kendo girl ruin the whole series for me. Dude was THIS CLOSE to breaking the mold. Show that even in a porn dystopia like this there'd still be plenty of guys who wouldn't just go around raping women, show people trying to be "normal" in this shithole. Then nah, JK, they all get fucked up anyway because I don't know.

Date really seems to trend towards the outright Thing type snuff like some of the darker stuff here >>>9989064. Hell his actual mind control stuff is pretty dark.

Those fuckers immediately turned on her. Cases of betrayal or actually showing the victim being happy before they get turned hit like a truck. Pic related pissed me off too.

They turned on her for literally no reason, after going out of their way to save her from being some stranger's hypno fuckpet, then complained at the end that she'd been broken. You can't have your cake and eat it too, Fan.

I knew better than to read much that, but it did seem like another case of wasted potential. Not that that's surprising at all, though. The NTRfag reaction was pretty funny.

If I were Alex, I would have just gotten the wizards to magic me up an orc sized dick. Simple as.

Long stamina as well so he can last through the night but considering he traded a huge chunk of his lifespan, that probably wouldn't work out in the long run.
