Title: The Eternal Dungeon: Transformation, The Balance, and On Guard.
Author: Dusk Peterson.
Where to find me: Website, Dreamwidth blog, InsaneJournal mirror blog, LiveJournal mirror blog, duskpetersonbooks (e-mail list with announcements of my fiction).
Series: The Eternal Dungeon, a historical fantasy series set in a land where the psychologists wield whips. You don't need to have read the previous novel in the series, Rebirth, to understand these stories. Also, you can take part in the Eternal Dungeon story discussions.
Categories: Original fiction. Male/male attraction, male/male platonic feelings, and hard-to-categorize male/female something-or-other. Prisonfic.
Rating: PG-13 or R, depending on the story.
Warnings.
Feedback: Yes, please.
Note: I'm doing a marathon session of posting the unpublished stories in the Eternal Dungeon series (up to the point where I've written): two novels and a work-in-progress novel that I'm three scenes away from finishing. If you'd like to receive weekly notices of each story, please watch my journal.
Summary: The Eternal Dungeon is no longer in danger. Unless, that is, something unexpected should happen.

Was his desire to bring a quick end to this searching due only to his selfish desire to end the nightmares and dark memories that the prisoner was unwittingly triggering?

(Mods, if this is not allowed, I apologize!)

About two years ago I corresponded with Richard Ramírez pretty frequently. He was shy, polite but withdrawn at first but over the course of almost a year, he slowly opened up. We had some pretty interesting discussions. We exchanged photographs and he praised me with compliments and constantly asked for more.

Finally, he manned up and asked me, in very specific detail, to take certain "naughty" photos of myself for him. I could not read the letter/request with a straight face. I still can't! I thought it was completely inappropriate and hilarious. I had no idea how to reply other than with a "wtf, perv!" So, I haven't responded to that letter yet.

I may write him again, now that time has passed, hoping he's forgotten by now and we can "start over."

But anyway, after giving it some thought (and after several requests) I've decided to share the "inappropriate letter".

He also included two separate pieces of paper. One with a story which he thought was amusing (and apparently thought it would amuse me too). Another with a drawing for me.

They can be found HERE at killer_culture.

Title: The Unanswered Question.
Author: Dusk Peterson.
Where to find me: Website, Dreamwidth blog, InsaneJournal mirror blog, LiveJournal mirror blog, duskpetersonbooks (e-mail list with announcements of my fiction).
Series: The Eternal Dungeon, a historical fantasy series set in a land where the psychologists wield whips. You don't need to have read the rest of the series to understand this story.

Rating: PG-13.
Warnings.
Feedback: Yes, please.
Summary: No weapons, no allies, and no guarantees that he will survive the test.

He was weaponless. Or rather, not quite weaponless, for he knew what he was capable of doing with his body, but he bore no blade, nor any whip, nor any lead pipe with which to stun his victim, nor any rope with which to strangle the victim . . . The number of potential weapons he had deliberately laid aside was frighteningly high.

Here's a full list of the original slash and original gen stories I've posted/reposted/published in the past year that have dark settings (imprisonment, slavery, prostitution, or war), or feature servants or liegemen. As the boilerplate warning for all my stories puts it, "All of the stories feature love or respect, though sometimes it takes a while to get there."

With one exception (marked below), all of these stories are available free online. If you'd like to buy an HTML e-book containing all of my writings as of April 2009 (700,000 words of fiction and 28 collections of fiction recommendations and nonfiction), visit Love in Dark Settings Omnibus.

Summary: The torturer was naive, inexperienced, and lacking in knowledge of the world. The prisoner was tough, worldly-wise, and had an infallible plan that would give him escape from this place. So why did the prisoner feel as though the torturer had the edge?

I could see before me a ceiling-high slate tablet covered with prisoners' names, and a goodly number of those names were crossed out. I knew what that meant.

Summary: If the High Seeker wants something, no power in life or death will hold him from taking it. What he wants now has brought danger to the Eternal Dungeon.

One of the jokes of the Eternal Dungeon was that Layle Smith had designed the Seekers' hoods, and that he had done so for the sole purpose of forcing prisoners to focus their attention upon his cold eyes. It was a joke that inevitably brought nervous laughter.

Additional note: If you think you've seen this story before, you probably have; I originally posted this story in 2003. However, since I'm about to serialize its sequels, I thought I'd announce it again, for the sake of readers who missed the first announcement. Also, it's been revised stylistically and there's a new epigraph.
Summary: The prisoner knew that the Eternal Dungeon was a place where suspected criminals were broken by torture, and he was prepared to hold out against any methods used against him – except the method he could not anticipate.

"Do you have any questions?" the Seeker asked. "About the routine of the dungeon? The times you will be fed? The questions you will be asked? The instruments of torture I use?"

Cover for Master and Servant

For those of you who are interested, I'm in the midst of working on a new series, Prison City. The series is prisonerfic, lord/liegeman fic, servantfic, and slavefic (also known as "having your cake and eating it too"). Here is its description:

What will happen when a youth from a bay island boarding school ends up in a futuristic prison?

Prison City, a retrofuture series based on the Chesapeake Bay oyster wars, homoeroticism in British public schools in the 1910s, and 1960s visions of things to come.

At the moment, what I have online is a blurb for the first volume (Master and Servant), the novella "The True Master" (which I've transferred from my Master/Other site, because the novella is set in the same nation as the rest of the Prison City stories), and a scene-long excerpt from the boarding-school portion of the series.

Since this is part of my Turn-of-the-Century Toughs cycle (which also includes The Eternal Dungeon, Life Prison, and Michael's House), I've updated the geography and timeline sections of the Turn-of-the-Century Toughs site.
