Torrid Tuesdays: Revenge Turns Hot

It's time for prompts of the potentially-pr0ny kind. Yes, it's Torrid Tuesday!

I thought I'd welcome it in this year with something that has a bit of an edge, so... your challenge is:

Write us some Revenge Sex

Options abound: Keep it simple, i.e. one character going after another, primarily to hurt somoene (to crush the feelings of his/her own other? Or maybe the target's other?). Or, add a twist - are there issues it causes beyond the cheating, i.e. seduction by a vampire turns bitey and someone gets turned, maybe?  Hmmm..... some AU possibilities here, too - like the chance to make your protagonist act very out of character?

If those are beyond your taste for the darkly manipulative, there could be a happier route to take. Like, say, a character who decides living well is the best revenge - and who finds someone to live well with. ;).

All fics welcome - from the only barely suggestive to the hot dayum!

Good luck, hope the prompt brings you words, and happy writing!

Right? I KNOW! It's put a little spring in my step this week, Torrid Tuesdays being back!

I might have to write to my own prompt today.....

Perfect prompt for phonefic on this ridiculously boring road trip! :D

Awesome! Glad that it's coming in handy. :)

My idea of revenge sex - I hate cheating/any form of abuse - is, apparently, more of a BDSM-style punishment for a severe transgression.

I like the way your muse thinks! ;)

I've had a plot kicking around for a while...

Person A is half-furious and half-terrified of the way Person B wades head-first into danger with no regard for his own health and safety. Person A does love B for who he is - i.e. the kind of man who would do everything to save a complete stranger on the street - he just wishes that B wouldn't take what A thinks are unnecessary risks. B's problem is that he's kind of a spur-of-the-moment guy; he often rushes in immediately without thinking, and thus might run headfirst into traps. He's a young hero still in that stage when they think they're invincible (has a little more basis in his case, but still gives A heart attacks). A has a lingering and pretty well-founded fear that he'd wake up one day to find B gone (which happened once, and was sufficiently horrific that B can barely remember what was done to him while he was in enemy hands).

Tl;dr: A hates the way B keeps sacrificing himself, but A isn't the typical overprotective mother hen and B isn't a brawny idiot.

So one day, after yet another death-defying stunt, B wakes up to find himself naked and chained to the bed, and generally spends the next few weeks being used as A's personal sex slave. Because in A's words: "If you won't take care of your body, you don't deserve to have autonomy over it."

[Warnings, well, it's undiscussed but B never attempted to safeword. B's not happy about it, but he doesn't put up a real fight, and A deliberately makes sure never to trigger him. I wouldn't even call it dubcon.]

When it comes to fic, my feeling is its all fair in love and words: dubcon included if that floats your boat. I've found I'm happier in my own fics if the BDSM is about mutual benefit- both sides seeing the experience as wanted and positive. So if the whole thing is way out of left field for character B, I'm not sure how that would work for me as a reader. But then for others that might be the most intriguing factor of all!

It IS for mutual benefit, and B does grow to learn that (and tries to stop taking unnecessary risks with his life for the sake of the people who love him). I wouldn't be able to write anything else. B trusts and respects A, and this strengthens their relationship.

It's a revenge fic after all, I don't think anyone expects revenge from the get-go!

Your original prompts have too much emotional abuse in them; it's not my cup of tea unless I'm doing a piece focusing on Stockholm Syndrome or similar. And the "living well" one is too fluffy haha.

so I'm new to the comm and this prompt like really inspired me to torture my poor sweet Ianto lol, so I was just wondering do I post a link to my story as a reply here or as a new post to the comm? I just don't want to do it wrong hahah. I read through the rules and I'm unclear. Thanks!!
Jun. 24th, 2015 07:52 pm (UTC)

Hi! Well, most people put it in the comments, either as a spoiler cut (if it's short) or a link to wherever else they posted it.

Jun. 24th, 2015 08:03 pm (UTC)
Yup, Starry is right- feel free to post it or link to it right here! That way people who want to click around later and find the various stories that get written for Torrid Tuesdays this year will find it.

You could also post it to the whole group - I don't think the mods ever mind some squeeing about fics. :)

I mostly post to the full comm when I have a couple of things saved up to share -- for instance, I'm thinking I'll post to all when I get done with my bingo, and I'll use that post to also follow up on some rewards I wrote this month.

And oh, yes, Ianto fics highly encouraged, lol. :)
Jun. 24th, 2015 08:42 pm (UTC)

Oh! There's also a neat list of AO3 subcollections, which I spam because my fics are generally too long to fit in one comment. You can post it there and link it in your comment.

I adore that Torrid Tuesdays are back - although this prompt took me on a decidedly angsty route involving Danny and Rachel pre-show ..... no sexy times, lots of angsty conversation.....

Title - A Dish Best Served
Rating - PG13
Fandom - H50
Characters - Danny Williams, Rachel Willams
Summary - Rachel has had enough of being second best to Danny's career.
