So I was in the shower this morning thinking about the conflict that my characters are going to encounter in book 2 and my mind strolled to the idea of the D/s relationship. I try to convey the emotional aspects of the relationship within my novels and characters. I’ve read plenty of novels and excerpts and blogs relating to this specific topic. I was pondering the idea that many D/s relationships end up with love at the end of them. I am not sure that it is not possible for Dom/sub to fall in love.
I have asked the question before on another site because someone I knew once told me that having a D/s relationship or even Master/slave can be done without any emotional attachment necessary, beyond the trust factor. I said I would have to disagree with the notion. I can understand being play partners, but talking to your Dom/me and/or sub everyday or more than just to set up a play date, would lead me to believe that the friends statement would be false.
It might just be me, but I don’t think that I could not be that emotionally involved within a relationship like that and not feel more emotion.
Oh, so the long confused blog post is my way of trying to sort through the idea. From what I have seen and read through those I follow on my blog and twitter accounts, I fully believe that the D/s relationship itself is more involved, and I know that it would depend upon the parties involved…but don’t you think that at some point the fight to not feel protective or jealousy or love would ultimately be overcome (as it does within the novel I am writing).
So..with that said. I turn to my friends and readers…especially those within the lifestyle to help me shine some light on the thoughts pondering my mind and writing at the moment.
