I have just spent a week away, visiting my mother and grandfather. My grandfather passed away the day after I left - not unexpected, given it was the reason I visited now rather than later.
We weren't real close. He was an old man, 93, not quite bed-bound, but pretty close to it. He had two sons and a daughter, outlived his wife and married again. He was in the navy during WWII, and I used to like listening to his stories about that, until he forgot them all. I feel like I should be sad, but I'm not. I find it hard to care, actually, except in so much as my mother is sad.
But anyway, that's enough of that. I actually just wanted to share some thoughts I've had about dirty, kinky relationships and what I want out of one, and a very small update on game development.
I am not interested in having a "master." Though I know several people who are happy with one, and several more searching, that's just not my interest. I want a partner - someone I can respect and who respects me - who just happens to like tying me up and hitting me.
This is not actually an unusual desire - despite what you may read in stories or see in porn, 24/7 D/s relationships are rather rare. Most BDSM relationships are "bedroom only" (for certain expansive definitions of bedroom).
That's... that's it. That's all I have to say right now. I promised some thoughts, not a lot of thoughts - stop judging, little mind-phantoms, insisting that every post be lonng and thought provoking and meaningful.
As far as game development goes, I've been a bit slow this past month or so. I did get the "Market" screen, and related interfaces, mostly working - still a bit more to do there, but the next focus is on the "Sailing" interface, to select destinations and whatnot. The above picture is another game asset that I thought I'd share, a tidbit to keep people interested. :)
