Twi Me Up Q&A - October 30th

Q: Does your Dom ever ask you to dress up?

A: That depends on what you mean by dress up. I have had a Dom ask me to wear something specific to a session, or wear my hair a certain way. I have been asked to wear certain shoes, or certain clothing. However, I have not had a Dom ask me to ‘dress up’ - for example as a naughty nurse, or a school girl. Of course I would, if asked.

Tuesday's Best~Oct 27th, 2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled


Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday is no different. The Master and I are normally here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices to flow. However, due to that fucker named "REAL LIFE" TwiSlash's Master aka our darling Val has had to take a brief hiatus. She will certainly be missed and I know we all wish her well and can't wait for her return.

With that said, I knew I couldn't carry on alone, so I've asked my good friend and beta, Naelany to join me in Tuesday's Best and bring to you our Picks of the Week. So, be sure to give her some love.

PS. So sorry this is late. My laptop hates me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's Girl brings you...

by DefinatelyStaying


Well, I know I'll probably catch some flack about lovin' on a member of the blog, but DefinatelyStaying's Fractured deserves all the love it can possibly get.

Fractured is the story of Jasper and Edward, but unlike DS's other stories featuring these amazingly fuckhot couple of guys, it isn't smut and it isn't porn. What it is, is an fucking amazing tale of two men who just so happens to be sharing something that most people don't understand and can't possibly grasp.

If for some reason you do NOT have DefinatelyStaying on Author Alert and you haven't read Fractured or any of her other fucking astonishingly beautiful stories then get busy. She's a Mistress of words and exquisitely gorgeous plots.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Naelany brings you...

I went scouring through my read list, to see if there was anything there that hadn't been covered already, and lo and behold, find something I did!

by mhl1115


You know how so many of us start of as readers (aka fangirls), and don't think we can write anything near as good as some of the stuff out there? Well, mhl1115 was one of them. She got brave though, and with a little liquid courage gave us a very yummy Edward who's not come out yet, and is on vacation with his family. While they're all hanging out on the beach, he sees Jasper. The instant chemistry between them is palpable, and the resulting... well, lets just say the result is pretty hot, and leaves Edward (and you) wanting more.

It's only three chapters in, and I for one can not wait to read more about these boys as they discover who they are and what they can be.

And just to wet your whistle a little...

"I haven't seen you around before. Are you here on vacation with your family?"

Really? He wanted to chitchat? Now??

"Yep, got in a few days ago," I replied.

“Hmmm…” he purred. With that, chitchat was over. He took his legs, wrapped them around my waist and pulled me to him. I was face-to-face with him when he whispered, "I would have remembered you if I had seen you before." I reached out slowly to touch his curls, gauging whether or not this was something he wanted me to do. God, I hoped he wanted this as much as I did. His deep blue eyes were filled with lust as he smiled, licked his lips, and touched me the same way. Only now, he fisted my locks and pulled my lips to his.

I swear I almost came right then.

His tongue gained entrance to my mouth quickly and it was all I could do to keep my composure. Our mouths were exploring each other gently at first, but then with a sense of mounting urgency. I wanted him more than I had ever wanted anything in my life.

When our dicks grazed each other, and the electricity was enough to force me to grab the edge of the table for balance. I pulled away from his kiss and he moaned and leaned back as I slowly licked my way down his neck, his collarbone, his chest.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, there you have it. Another Tuesday filled with TwiSlash Unveiled's picks of the week. Hope you remembered your towel. If not, don't send us the dry cleaning bill, we warned you.

I also want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to Naelany, not only for stepping up and helping out for a bit, but once she agreed to do so, she did something I've not had the time to do - she's created a list of all our recs and done it in record time, WITHOUT being asked. I can't thank her enough. I love ya chick!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, don't forget about TwiSlash Unveiled's Poly Slash One Shot contest that opened on Sept 15th. For information, click the link on the top right hand side of the page, or shoot us an email. We'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Slash Author Guest Rec - Fiberkitty

When I was asked to offer my story recommendations for the blog, I'll admit I panicked a bit. I'm weaning myself off fanfic, and I think I was only reading around five stories at the time I was originally asked. Two new stories started recently, and both are quickly moving up the ranks of my favorites. Neither are slash, and both- ready yourselves for the shock- are primarily canon pairings.


The first, World of Sorrow, written by luvrofink is a very dark story. You can find it at: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5430298/1/


Summary:
In a world of sorrow there are only two possible outcomes: death at the hands of a killer vamp or become the property of one that has purchased you. In a rare moment of luck, one might find themselves mated, allowed to change and live forever. Follow our three favorite Twilight girls as they fight against fate and ultimately join the ruling ranks of the vamps in this AU tale of love and lust.


I was lovingly treated to an advance copy of the first two chapters a few weeks before posting. From luvrofink, formerly known as mrspacman, I would not have expected anything less than a stellar Darkward. She does not disappoint. While her After The Great War, remains my all time favorite Darkward, Sorroward is a close second.


“I can see your pulse thumping under the thin layer of skin. It calls to me, begs me, sings to me, Isabella,” he purred as his tongue traced over the throbbing point.


Yet even while surely a dark, blood-thirsty vampire, Edward also has his tender moments that allow Bella and the reader to fall for him.


“You will take a bath however often you would like, Isabella. I never want you to feel dirty again. You are a goddess and you should feel like one,” his sweet smile made me smile in return.




Even her Jasper is exquisite, starting off in chapter one with enough blood-lust to satisfy my own dark urges.


Before we walked in, my savior’s head snapped up and his fiery eyes locked with mine.

“You’ve kept me waiting a long time darlin’,” his southern drawl soothed my soul.

I was left with him then, my silver haired keeper leaving us be. I stood on shaky legs as Jasper, my love, slid his chair back from the ornate furniture and rose to greet me. He took slow deliberate steps towards me, my blood pulsing in my veins. A soft hum rippled through my body and I felt my arousal grow as he neared me.

“So responsive,” he mused as he stood in front of me.

“You’ve seen me, haven’t you darlin’?” he asked sweetly.

I nodded my head unable to speak.

“Then you know what happens next don’t you?” he asked before dipping his head and pressing his cold lips to the skin of my neck.



Emmett, while large and imposing, shows his true colors when with Rose, allowing the gentle warmth that he reserves for his loved ones to show through.



“It’s alright, Rosie. I’ll just start you a bath and give you some privacy,” he said smoothly as he turned to walk away.

“Thank you,” I whispered. Those were the first words I had spoken to him.

“You’re welcome,” he said with a small smile.

After a few moments he came out from the bathroom with a soft looking bathrobe in his hands. He walked towards me slowly, careful to not startle me. I felt my heart warm at his caring nature. Emmett held out the robe to me.

“You can put this on when you’re through. I have a dress for you. We’ll be meeting the rest of my family this evening, along with their new mates,” he explained as I took the robe.

“Go on,” he gestured toward the open door.






The vampires are dark, yet loving, a combination I find utterly irresistible. The writing is solid, and character development is going really well. Her women are not weaklings, but while still docile to the men's wishes, do show the promise of finding their own inner strength. With a promise of the ritual to be changed into a vampire hinted at in the end of chapter four, I cannot wait for more.



~*~



My second story recommendation is Where the Road Meets the Sun, by miztrezboo. It can be found here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5329811/



Summary: When everything turns to dust and falls apart at the seams, the only way out, may be the only way in. The path you know might not be the easiest, but it might also be the only one you need. AH


Given the prologue, I'm fairly certain that the heart fail is not over for Bella and Edward, Boo seems to have it out for them again. However, I know that she'll make the journey worth it, and give us enough love and warmth to cling to in the moments of pain and tears.


Chapter one starts us off with a Bella we all want to hate...


Bella, my Bella, has one hand on the doorknob and the other tangled in a mess of dirty blonde long hair. My Bella both legs wrapped around this other person’s jean clad waist and her lips… My Bella’s lips are bruised and dark rosy as she giggles and moans as he pushes her up against the door, not waiting to even enter the room before attacking her throat with his mouth.



But, we're given a small glimpse of her salvation in chapter two.



It wasn’t even that Maria’s head was on his lap. It wasn’t even that they looked so, perfect and couple-like all snuggled on the couch like they were when I walked in, breakfast treats in hand that I went out of my way and my pocket to buy. No, it was the fact that he looked at peace. Even in his respite, he looked happier, calmer than he had ever looked when he was with me.
That’s what hurt the most. That he could look like that without me. That he didn’t need me like I needed him.



No, no, no... Don't go running off. This is not the standard miscommunication story. I promise. Both characters have so much growing up to do, and I know that I can trust miztrezboo to help them on their journey to adulthood and finding out how to be whole on their own so they can complement one another as equals.


Along their way, they have some great friends to help. Except for James, he's an asshole. Let's start with James so we can move on to those I don't want to see crushed beneath a ton of steel bars.


"Don't move. It can wait." His fingers dug into my hip flesh again, pulling my body to his. I winced, there was definitely going to be bruising there now but at least it wasn't in a place where anyone was likely to see. That was going to be all sorts of helpful when I went back to the dorm tonight, I wouldn't have to worry about any blonde haired roommates shaking their head in my direction.

"Put your hands back where they were, Bella," James growled, his sculptured chest rising up and down in time with his ragged breaths. His eyes were changing again as the melody continued to repeat over and over from his phone's small speakers.



He started off so hot and ended up an ass. I can only hope that he gets what he deserves. In the meantime, we do get some lovely Spicolisper... If you haven't seen Fast Times at Ridgemont High to know of the amusing character Jeff Spicoli, I highly (yes, that is a bit punny) recommend watching it. The Jasper in this story has partied a little too much but he means well, and provides great comedic relief.



"If it isn't the Bellawan! Breaker of hearts and body parts everywhere!" he chuckled, pulling me up off the floor and into his lanky, beer and pot smelling embrace.

"JW, you sure do know how to greet a girl," I said as he finally put me back down, his hand still wrapped around my waist. "Though I'm not entirely sure what you meant with the breaker of body parts. As far as I know there has never been any form of broken appendage apart from my own." I chuckled, as his hands pulled me close, swaying out of time to the Ting Tings, instead like we were slow dancing to some romantic number.

"You say potato, I say tomato," he laughed, my head bouncing against his bare, sweaty chest. I laughed with him, well more at him and settled in for the ride.



It's Rosalie, however, who truly shines in this fic. Despite miztrezboo's love of Kellmett, she has fleshed out Rosalie into exactly how I think she should be. Warm, loving and loyal to her friends and family, while maintaining her cold edgy outward appearance as she puts her entire heart into protecting those of her loved ones. She doesn't mind telling Edward how things are:


“Well Ethel,” I rolled my eyes at her nickname, how we ended up with such random names to throw at each other was beyond me and fueled from one night of Jaeger bombs while I drowned my sorrows at Bella leaving me so few months ago, “You’re the one that sat there being sad panda all afternoon. How fucking long have you been out here? You should have come and found me.”



Rose is also the one to really lay into Bella about the whole mess.



"You think I should give him a chance. Is that what you're saying, Bella?"

"Y-y-yes," I stuttered, shocked at the absolute venom I could hear behind her words.

"Bella, are you fucking blind? He controls you, Bella. I see it every time you bring him around. How can you not?"

I shook my head, she was wrong. James didn't control me or anyone, he was a free spirit and he brought that out in me too.


Even with all the pain that the star-crossed lovers will be put through by my beloved Boo, two little lines give me hope that amid it all, she is still a romantic at heart.


I couldn’t take my eyes off her and I couldn’t for the life of me remember why I ever wanted to, either. She was still the earth that my moon orbited around, cosmically linked by something bigger than both of us.


Come hope with me and read this story.


I'll see you in the reviews for both of these gems, because really, any story worth reading, is worth reviewing.

Twi Me Up Q&A - October 23rd


Q: I am very curious about all the ropes and tying people up in those pretty pretty pictures.
What should you use?
Can you use anything?


A: The type, material, and style of rope that you use depend on your bondage objectives. If you are merely interested in restraint without the purpose of aesthetics, long term bondage, or suspension you can use any type of generic rope that does not irritate the skin. For longer term bondage, or more stressful forms such as suspension you’ll want to keep in mind tensile strength and comfort. For example rope made from hemp will give rope burns if the bound person struggles too much against them.

If you’re looking for aesthetics for something like Japanese rope bondage, you can use colored ropes, or twisted cotton or nylon ropes which leave marks in the submissive’s skin.

For more information on rope bondage and types of ropes – check out the following resources:

The Twilight Fandom Gives Back


What some of you may not know about me is that I lost my five month old daughter to an unsuccessful heart transplant. I don't think any parent should ever have to out live their child.

Please do what you can to support this cause - tweet about it, blog about it, put it in an AN, and donate if you can.

Thank you,
DefinatelyStaying

Dear friends, fans and followers,

Did you know that every year over 200,000 children worldwide are diagnosed with a form of childhood cancer? We cannot ignore this shocking statistic impacting the youth of the world, and we certainly hope that you won’t either. We need your help.

Starting Nov. 15 through Nov. 20th, the fandom will have the opportunity to help in the fight against childhood cancer. We haven't set a monetary goal, because we're firm in the belief that no matter what we set, you as a fandom will surpass it.

Running this virtual stand, is the biggest challenge we have ever faced – the challenge of raising awareness of just how serious the epidemic of childhood cancer is.

The money raised will go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer, a 501(c)3 public charity, to fund childhood cancer research projects. The mission of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is to raise funds and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily to support research into new cures and treatments; to encourage and educate others, especially children, to raise money for childhood cancer by holding their own lemonade stands; and to expedite the process of finding new cures and bringing them to children with cancer now.
Please help support our efforts and this critically important cause by making a contribution by visiting our virtual stand. You can make your donation online by visiting our Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Fundraising page, http://www.alexslemonade.org/stands/19842.

You can also help us by passing this message along to others who may be interested in visiting our virtual stand, or holding one of their own!

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
lolashoes, ninapolitan & tby789

Tuesday's Best~Oct 20th, 2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled


Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday is no different. The Master and I are normally here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices to flow. However, due to that fucker named "REAL LIFE" TwiSlash's Master aka our darling Val has had to take a brief hiatus. She will certainly be missed and I know we all wish her well and can't wait for her return.

With that said, I knew I couldn't carry on alone, so I've asked my good friend and beta, Naelany to join me in Tuesday's Best and bring to you our Picks of the Week. So, be sure to give her some love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's Girl brings you...

by Beautiful Figment


Naelany and I decided to highlight one of her favorite authors on her debut of Tuesday's best, the one, the only, the awesomeness that is Beautiful Figment.

For my pick of BF's work, I chose Need an Excuse. Edward is on a mission and closeted gay pal, Jasper - who just so happens to have the hots for his pal - has agreed to help. What happens when Bella forces Edward and Jasper into a tiny, tiny closet?

While the story's not overly long, it is fucking hot as hell and features a fabulous dry hump scene that rivals any DH I've read. If you don't have Need an Excuse on your already read list and Beautiful Figment on your alert list then you need to consult a professional, because you've lost your ever lovin mind.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Naelany brings you...

by beate73 & Beautiful Figment


So Whitlock's Girl calls me yesterday morning, asking if I could help out with the recommendations for a while, since life's taken a bit of a tailspin for her and The Master. So I say sure, why not. At first, she wasn't worried about today's post. But... my mind went running, as it's wont to do in these situations, and I just couldn't leave a week go by without a double rec for y'all. So I called her back, asking if certain stories had been brought up yet. Much to my delight, they had not! So without further ado, I bring you:

By Any Means Necessary by beate73 and Beautiful Figment

This story was written for the "For the Love of Jasper" contest. It's written in third person, and gives you Jasper, Edward, and a little bit of Bella (a very little). Jasper's a musician who's come back to his hometown to perform with his band. Edward was the closest thing to a friend he had and has come to watch the show. Bella... well, you'll have to read about her. Not going to waste words on her when I can quote you a little hot lovin'. ;) Eh, not even that, I'll let you savor that when you go read. But a little sweet, maybe??

“Sexy,” Edward sighed. To this, Jasper blushed as Edward reached up to tuck a wavy blond lock behind his ear. He regarded Jasper’s ear for a moment longer, reflecting on his words from just a few moments before. Edward enjoyed a good nibble behind the ear. A little too much, if he were to be honest. But would, Jasper?
One way to find out.

He leaned in quickly, scared of losing his nerve, before nudging the sweet spot behind Jasper’s ear with his nose. Jasper gasped at the contact. He hoped it was a good thing.

He pressed his lips to Jasper’s skin before gently grazing the flesh with his teeth. Jasper’s body jerked just before grabbing a fistful of Edward’s hair. He gave Jasper a gentle nip before sweeping his tongue across the newly bitten skin.

“Fuck, Edward,” Jasper whimpered.

Before Edward could get too pleased with himself, Jasper pushed him back slightly. His hands become a blur as they worked to unfasten the buttons of Edward’s shirt.

“This thing has got to go. I wanna see you.”


Now, y'all know what BF writes, and that it's fuck-hot (and really, if you don't know yet, where have you been hiding?), so believe me when I say that she makes good on her name ;). Beate and BF write seamlessly together. I loved their Edward and Jasper, I'm sure you will, too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, there you have it. Another Tuesday filled with TwiSlash Unveiled's picks of the week. Hope you remembered your towel. If not, don't send us the dry cleaning bill, we warned you.

I also want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to Naelany, not only for stepping up and helping out for a bit, but once she agreed to do so, she did something I've not had the time to do - she's created a list of all our recs and done it in record time, WITHOUT being asked. I can't thank her enough. I love ya chick!

Twi Me Up Q&A - October 16th

Q: I have had several different variations of the same question this week – has a Dom ever made you hold his semen in your mouth until he told you to swallow?

Follow up question: If not, would you?


A: As I have stated a few times before, every relationship is different, so I can’t speak to absolutes. I have not personally seen this done, no. After I started getting emails about it, I asked about half a dozen Doms and subs that I know, and they had not done it either. That is not to say that it isn’t done, but it doesn’t seem to be very common.

In my experience, the submissive swallows as a sign of further submission. At least, that’s the consensus I get from the people I have spoken to.

If my Dom told me to do that, would I?

Without question.

PLEASE READ: With certain events that have happened in the fandom recently, I would like to add the following - any comments (either in agreement or disagreement of this post) that are inflammatory or derogatory to me, another author, a reader, a community of readers, another blog or the even little green men that watch you take a shower will be deleted without hesitation.

I do not subscribe to the abuse and hatred that has been flying around, and it will not happen here. Our job at Twi Me Up and at TwiSlash is to inform and entertain, anything else will simply be deleted.

Tuesday's Best~Oct 13th, 2009

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled


Tuesday's are for the best slash stories we can find and this Tuesday is no different. The Master and I are here to present you with a few FUCKAWESOME tales that will get your heart to sing and your juices to flow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whitlock's Girl brings you...

by Whitlock-Masen


Marked is written by the awesomeness that is Whitlock-Masen or otherwise known as SorceressCirce and Naelany. And when I say awesomeness, I mean these two fucking rocked my world with this oneshot that was written for the Tattward and Inkella contest.

The story is told from Edward's POV. Edward, a photographer, is working on a book about tattooing. When he meets Jasper, Edward asks Jasper to sit for him. The problem is that Edward has this undeniable and barely containable attraction to Jasper. Several times during the shoot Edward is dragged into a trance-like state by a half naked Jasper. (Who can blame him?)

While there's not any smexin' yet, the UST in this oneshot is fucking fabulous. It's some of the best I've ever read in fic or published works. It's hot and steamy and leaves you fucking breathless. I seriously thought I was going to need a breathing treatment to get my respiratory system back on track after reading it.

Marked, while only a oneshot for the time being, is being expanded into a full blown story and I for one can't wait for it to happen. It's beautiful, captivating and if SorceressCirce and Naelany's other stories are any indication, the multi-chaptered version of Marked will continue to knock our socks off.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Master brings you...

by mistyhaze420


This past week (alright, couple of weeks) real life has been kicking my ass and unfortunately, reading lovely slash has been low on my priority list…the horror, I know! Once again, I sat here and went ‘Shit, I need a fic for tomorrow’ and went into dumpster dive mode, crawled in and pulled out “Never Let Go” by calico736. I thought with only two chapters, this would be quick story to read and possibly recommend. Boy, was I wrong. Yes, it is only two chapters, but the first chapter is over 14k, the second chapter around 7k. The author is not afraid of details, or taking her time, making sure not to rush one moment of Jasper/Edward loving.

The boys are with their friends and sibling/s, Rosalie, Emmett and Alice in a cabin in the mountains. The story starts off with Jasper verbally telling Edward off, while mentally thinking the exact opposite, after Edward tackles Jasper in a game of touch football. This tackle leads Jasper to get a bit, er, excited, and completely embarrassed. While Jasper feels this attraction, and love, for Edward, he attempts to deny his emotions. However, this does not last long, and he soon finds out that Edward feels the same way about him, but neither boy is ‘out’ yet and they do not want to be out’ed to their friends/family in this situation. This means some sneaking around (and even some closet time, literally!).

Things are uncomfortable for them, their physical desire to touch each other, and want to be near each other constantly putting them at risk for being caught by someone. Of course, it turns out they are not quite as stealthy as they thought, and there is at least one other in the cabin that has seen their attraction for each other.

After a life and death situation, they become even closer, and begin to have a more ‘what the fuck’ attitude about anyone finding out, although they are consciously still trying to hide their relationship-which has progressed quickly emotionally but not as much physically.

The author does a great job with the smut provided to date, which has been some grinding, kissing and cuddling, as well as an outstanding job portraying Jasper’s emotions. His love for Edward, and his fear of losing him, and coming out. Jasper’s emotions are tangible in this story. I like the longer chapters, although not when I am in a hurry to write a review, but ones that you can sit and enjoy and yet never be bored. So, go read “Never Let Go”, sink into some good slash and leave the author some love if you enjoy it!

So, there you have it. Another Tuesday filled with TwiSlash Unveiled's picks of the week. Hope you remembered your towel. If not, don't send us the dry cleaning bill, we warned you.

Slash Author Guest Rec - Kuntrygal

I'm honored to have been asked to do a guest rec for Twislash! I'm a big fan of SorceressCirce< and she has teamed up with ahelm to create The Phoenix Riddle. They have posted the first story of what they are calling "The Photographer Series", the first being Exposure.

Exposure: When Bella meets Edward and Rosalie, they have an interesting proposition for her. It was supposed to be one night only. What happens when no one wants it to end? ExBxR, ExB, BxR, AU/AH. Part One of The Photographer's Series.


They make the promise in the author's note of the first chapter that this is not your typical threesome fic. Well, they held true on that promise. The only other fem slash story I have ever read was a Alice/Bella, where Bella is married to Jasper. I'll admit I was a little leary when I realized it was going to have some Bella/Rosalie in it, but I trusted SorceressCirce so I continued to read. I'm so glad I did! The interaction between them is very sweet and I look forward to reading more.

This story is currently only three chapters in. I'm very anxious to see where they go with it.

Twi Me Up Q&A - October 9th











Q: Mistress my wife and I were watching fetish porn (http://www.xvideos.com/video120937/euro_bdsm_slave_anal_hook) while we’re getting each other off and we spied an anal hook being used in the vid. We both are still rather unclear about its usage in BDSM play. Care to enlighten us? Thanks.
In Devotion,


A: First, I need to preface this answer with the following:
1. I have never used an anal hook on a submissive nor have I had one used on me, however I have seen it done.
2. This is more advanced BDSM, harder core, for experienced players – don’t try this at home.
Okay, an anal hook is used basically for the same reason as breast and hair bondage – it’s another form of dominance. However, it also serves other bondage roles in that it is also used for restraint and pleasure. For example – I have seen an anal hook used for women to hold them still during sex. I have also seen it used on a man where his penis and testicles were bound with a rope toward his feet, and the anal hook going in the opposite direction. This is an effective way to teach a submissive patience and discipline without complete immobilization.

As to pleasure, the hook can also be attached with a rope to a sub’s collar or other movable binding (wrist cuffs, etc). During intercourse, the sub can have control over the movement of the hook causing heightened stimulation much like a dildo or a plug can be used.

Whitlock's Girl brings you...

The Ranch Hand
by FiberKitty


I was teased and tantalized with this story during WC after WC while Kitty was writing it and I was so tickled when it went live and even more tickled when the "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" contest announced that FiberKitty's The Ranch Hand took first place. If you like Jasper and Emmett and you like Emsper stories then dear sweet fucking Jesus Christ this story is the one for you.

Emmett runs into an old friend and is offered a job. The job is on a ranch and owner of said ranch is Jasper Whitlock. Emmett has had a thing for Jasper for a long while, but since Jasper is with Alice, Emmett is stuck in the space between a rock and a hard place.

On the first day, Emmett can't help but whack off to the images of Jasper - hot, sweaty, and dusty Jasper. The thing is, from his spot in the bathroom, Emmett hears Jasper in the bedroom, self-servicing himself.

I don't want to give too much away, as it is only a one shot, but if you've not read this story, you need to stop whatever you are doing and go read it now.

The Master brings you...

I came across this story via a Jasper/Bella story that the author writes that I read as well, when I saw this story posted in her A/N, I thought I’d give it a quick read. I did…and fell I love with it. There are several reasons why I am living this story so far, some close to me, others just personal preferences. “Lessons Learned” is about Edward, the adopted social misfit child of Carlise and Esme. He has a dark and abusive past leaving him emotionally scared and socially awkward. Then we have Jasper, a loner by choice, also from a dark past, who is socially well adjusted-but we find out it is all an act.

Edward’s past follows him and he is bullied by his peers, beaten and verbally abused. Carlise and Esme fear his lack of friends and social skills at the age of thirteen is reason enough to possibly enroll him in a special school. Overhearing their plans, a worried Edward goes the park to watch his peers and attempt to socialize. Things go horribly wrong and he is once again bullied and runs away, in tears. He comes across newcomer Jasper playing basketball in his yard. They strike up an immediate friendship and Edward invites Jasper to his house for dinner, thrilling Esme.

The bond of their friendship is fast and deep, they tell each other some deep secrets, and Jasper even goes to the park the next day to beat the shit out of Edward’s tormentors. Edward clearly admires Jasper’s skills and confidence, and Jasper loves having Edward admire him. He promises to teach Edward to be just like him, pretend to have the confidence and fit in-Edward accepts the challenge and proves to be a very apt pupil.

Jasper is so devoted to teaching Edward everything, he even volunteers his lips are service to teach Edward to kiss, and to judge if Edward is a sufficient kisser or not. This is one very sweet, yet hot scene, as their tender lips move together and we get Jasper’s pov wanting to continue it, deepen it and enjoying far more than he expected.

After, all Jasper wants to do is kiss Edward, but he resists until they are together Christmas night and Edward spends the night in Jasper’s bed. When they wake, tangled in each other, they kiss and cuddle, with a wannabe grind. Happy sigh.

Now, the reasons I love this story-the author is not afraid to touch on these darker topics, an abusive past, and Edward who cuts himself, a Jasper who takes prescription meds to forget his shitty life, as well as young teen boys discovering themselves and their attraction to each other.

I enjoy the deep back story she is giving us before moving them along-as I am doing the same thing in my story and feel back stories can be so vital to where the characters go in the future and why they make certain choices. Another parallel I see is the depth of the bond of their friendship, much like my Jasper/Edward, hers would do anything for the other, no matter the cost. They can kiss and touch and then be the same Jasper/Edward the next day-to them, it’s normal and acceptable and okay. They are just that close and friendships like that are rare, so to see this unique bond makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. I also like her strong Jasper-too often we get hero Edward (I am guilty of this) and a weaker Jasper, but her Jasper, at least at the moment, is confident and strong, someone Edward can idolize.
Lastly, mistyhaze420 doesn’t shy away from details and lengthy chapters, something I learned while reading her other story-and enjoyed there as well.

I cannot wait to see where this story goes, I am hoping for some great angst for the boys, either dealing with their growing attraction to each other, or dealing with those around them as they progress in their friendship/relationship. Go read, you won’t be sorry and be sure to leave her some love in a review if you enjoy it.

Read, Rate & Review~Thursday, Oct 1st!

Welcome to TwiSlash Unveiled!

We really appreciate you coming back week after week to see us. Every Thursday, The Master and Whitlock's Girl try to bring you a story that will knock your socks off. We hope you enjoy this week's story.

And...without further ado, we bring to you...


Gasping for Air
by Wolfenmoon1313

SUMMARY:
Jasper is a young man with a dark past. No one should have to survive the horror he had to endure. All he's looking for is a friend but he find much more than that...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Val, aka The Master:

Oddly enough, this story was almost my recommendation for this past Tuesday, so when Donna suggested it as our Thursday review, I was all over it. “Gasping for Air” by Wolfenmoon1313 is about naïve Jasper and Edward; two strangers who have a chance meeting at coffee shop and learn a lot about in each other in a very short amount of time. As of chapter six, the story has only covered one day, although there are characters’ back stories weaved through the povs-and what back stories they are!

Jasper easily has one of the most tragic pasts I have read about in any Twific. Having watched his parents be brutally murdered while he was sexually molested, coming out of it mentally and physically scarred for life. Edward’s past, while not quite as tragic, included a horrific experience for him as well. Both are confused, due to their pasts, about their sexuality-neither ever really considering if they were gay, straight or bisexual. In fact, Jasper hasn’t had an erection in the seven years since his parents death.

However, after literally running into Edward, at a coffee shop, Jasper has his first erection, and is at a bit of a loss as to what to do about it. Scared, he runs off before even getting Edward’s name. Experimenting in the shower, he masturbates to Edward’s image, realizing just how good being sexual can feel.

Edward also feels the instant attraction to Jasper and after picking up Jasper’s dropped backpack, he discovers Jasper’s address and hand delivers it.

Needless to say, Jasper is shocked to find the green-eyed beauty of his shower fantasy at his door, however he invites him and the beginning of a relationship starts as they realize they have so much more in common than they ever could have imagined.

While I really enjoyed this story, especially Jasper’s incredibly dark past, I do feel their discovery of ‘I’m gay’ was quick and coincidental, as neither realized they were gay prior to meeting each other and within half an hour, Edward is coming out of the closet to his friends. My other quirky moment was shortly after Edward showed up at Jasper’s, they are awkwardly declaring their desire for each other and sharing their histories-it just seemed to move a bit fast considering how shy and naïve they both are.

Also, the first chapter, I had a bit of a difficult time concentrating because all I kept seeing was the pronoun fail (numerous sentences beginning with I, he, she, me, we, it etc) which was a bit distracting for me. However, overall, I enjoyed the story and would recommend it, I am curious to see their relationship progress emotionally and physically. Be sure to leave the author some love if you enjoy it!

Donna aka Whitlock's Girl

Since I have the worst case of the flu I think I've ever had, along with my 9yo son being ill as well, I'm find myself falling farther and farther behind. Combined with last week's laptop fail, I'm slowly getting overwhelmed and I hope you'll forgive me for taking a tiny break.

So, when Val asked what we were doing for today, this story was the first one to my mind. A good friend, Zulfiqar had rec'd it to me the night before and I thought we'd give it a go because it wasn't the typical story.

From Jasper's, and also Edward's, tragic past to Jasper's experimentation with self-pleasure, to the budding relationship between the two that came about kinda quick, in my opinion, I felt my emotions running the gamut. I have to say that I enjoyed the story immensely. I can't wait to see what their relationship becomes and how it gets to where it's going.

At just six chapters, Gasping for Air is a quick read and a pretty good one as well. Like Val said, the first chapter's pronoun fail is hard to swallow, but other than that the story is fabulous.

I hope that you'll give it a read. If you do, make sure to leave Wolfenmoon1313 some love.
