Misty F Fiction

Conference Call – 3/15

Much to my surprise, I have actually done quite a bit since the last one of these. It feels like maybe I am finding my grove again--or I have been in mania state for the last few weeks and I am bound to hit manic point any day now--Guess we'll see!

Conference Call – Back on my way

It has been a while since I wrote one of these and doing so feels like breaking through spider webs, like trying to take a deep breath after a long cold. I want to get back into the habit of writing these, and I need to start somewhere. I've been fumbling with the flint, but finally, I got a light to catch. I stand with a torch in one hand, reaching out with the other as I stumble forward in the dark to the next crossroads in my life. I know not the destination, but I do know the next few turns...

Ask Misty – The Appeal of Transformation Erotica

squidbuddy99 asked: What do you think makes transformation erotica so appealing? I include things like growth, expansion, gender transformation, even more mainstream, not necessarily erotic concepts like werewolves and hypnotism. I remember getting into this genre rather innocently, only somewhat recently getting into actually in-depth works like the ones you make (by the way, I kept forgetting to thank you for the amazing request you did for me a while back!), what do you think draws so many people in?

Ask Misty – Confident Characters

Anonymous asked: Confidence is so sexy don't you think? Not flaunting it like "worship me" haughty confidence but the "I love myself" confidence when someone is happy with their own body. Those people walk into a relationship and take compliments like "aw, thanks for agreeing with me." Then you throw a transformation into the mix and it's like "and I thought I couldn't get any better!"

Ask Misty – TF scene with two straight women?

anonymous asked: How would you write a story where two women are having a sexy and fun time with a transformation but aren't homosexual? The only thing coming to mind is both doing their own thing next to each other instead of with each other. But that feels like I might as well have two separate stories instead of one with them together

Ask Misty – Is A Balanced Dynamic a Turn-Off?

Anonymous asked: I don't follow all your work, but it feels like everything I've read of late involves some form of power dynamic. I know sub Dom is a big part of a lot of peoples kinks, but not everyone's. If anything its a bit of a cliche/over trodden. Real question: is a story with a relationship that has a balanced power dynamic a turn off for sub/Dom people?

Ask Misty – A Statement of Invitation

Short version: not having the words to discuss concepts about how sex and gender are separate parts of a person’s identity only deepens the irrational fears of those predisposed to hate towards “others.” Without the ability to discuss an issue, to give it a form people can integrate into their own awareness, developing a societal understanding is likely impossible and that only results in escalation born of desperation both to be recognized and to defend against the unknown–and that paradox, that inexorable tension, is one of the greatest threats to a society and culture.

  I do not claim to have an answer for this impasse, but I would like to believe some of what I write can help open that conversation up a bit more. I might not always hit the mark perfectly, but I promise to be as respectful as possible when it comes to writing what are typically vulnerable, intimate moments between people just starting to get to know each other. I want nothing more than to treat those moments of great trust with the dignity they deserve. I want to keep making stories about these moments which end in something besides cruelty.

  Many might say never having cruel things happen is fanciful escapism. However, if someone considers the premise that humans might actually someday possess even a small empathy for others to be an escapist fantasy too far from reality to enjoy… I weep for them.

  I write Speculative Fiction. I write the stuff of dreams and hopes and fantasies. I spin tales of fears and regrets and of doubts. This sandbox I play in is full of adventures in space, across worlds unknown, and through times unwritten. There are stories during times of peace and during war. This genre of the fantastic is home to billions of other people living in other times and other places. Surely there is some reality where being trans or even altersex is just part of who people are. And I invite you to join me there.

Ask Misty – Statement of Intent

Before I say anything else, I want to say thank you, anon, for your ask. I have been wondering when I would start getting feedback like this--and, honestly? I am surprised it took this long to get something like your Ask.

  I always encourage people to call me out on stuff they feel I could be doing better and, sure, that kind of overture probably feels akin to being asked over for tea and the host has covered all the seats in broken glass; however, I mean what I say. I want, very much, to engage with people whose views are outside of my lens because there is so much more life out there than I can ever experience alone.

  So, while I feel like I would be wholly justified in just ignoring what is incendiary performative allyship hyperbolic tripe, I also want to stick to my principles of encouraging discourse. After all, the concerns I am getting from those questions are all entirely valid, if narrowly focused, criticisms of my work, and I feel that if I dismiss them out of hand, purely because I feel that their diction is purposefully confrontational, then I am saying I am not interested in entertaining opposing opinions. I realize, however, that engaging with this ask also invites more of the same so... allow me to be perfectly fucking clear about something...

Conference Call – June/5

So, yeah... last month was a real mixed bag. On the one hand, life goals are progressing well, and I even had my first “pro sale” in a comic script that is entering pre-production with FutaFan Comics--Yes, I know, I avoid that word as much as possible but, I am super looking forward to bringing my admittedly different perspective to a “porn comic”--and I was encouraged to work on the script for #2. So, yeah m/ n.n”

Ask Misty – Writing Tips

Anonymous asked: Would you be willing to share any tips on how to write good erotic fiction? Or on how to write good transformation stories? Every time I try writing one, the transformation always feels either confusing or not erotic enough.

Dinah Whitecloud

Bio Dinah Whitecloud (29, F) is a Bovidae (aka a Minotaur) whose appearance is based much more on a buffalo than a Grecian or Spanish bull. She is half-Scandinavian and half-Native American, which gives her a light auburn coat instead of the typical dark brown of her peers. Her Grandmother is still very much connected to their tribe, which is analogous to the Lakota Sioux, for whom The White Buffalo is a prophetic symbol. While Dinah is, on the whole, humble, she does feel a certain responsibility to do good for Daen-Terran and Daen-Demi relations.

Reminders to Self

-No matter how cathartic, my frustration fueled fantasies of becoming a conventionally attractive woman with a huge dick and balls and having my life magically improve are transphobic and internalize harmful patriarchal notions. Period.
-By creating the content I write, regardless of intention, I am willfully taking actions that can cause harm and I am responsible for both those wounds and old wounds reopened.

Then, in no particular order:
-Writing with physical symbolism, in a genre about being physical, is a learning process that involves playing with fire. Always strive to do better, to be respectful, to listen to others who have real experience, and to react with grace when burned.
-That which is well-meaning can still be harmful. Even if I am writing with respect, I do not have the right to feel attacked when called out.
-I hate being fetishized for being a bisexual and non-binary, the same is true for others.
-Do not allow the toxicity towards being a woman or bisexual taint my writing. Craft stories with love and understanding, not hate or shame.
-In writing about sex, gender, and transformation involving both, I am participating in a conversation that is like an iceberg. There is always more I do not know because it is outside my experience.
-Never elevate phallic symbols at the expense of vaginal ones. The puss is just as strong and to write otherwise continues to propagate the very notions I hate about gender conventions.
– Genitals do not equal gender identity. Women can have penises, men can have vaginas. Neither is empowered or diminished by this fact.

And finally:
– Sharing a story with tags puts it in front of people who have not opted-in to seeing it. This can be viewed as an act of aggression and people who feel threatened will respond as such. Also, just because I never get pushback, does not mean I should not continually strive to evaluate the biases in my thinking and expression in the same way one would check for wear and tear on any other tool.
