Careful What You Ask For

This is e's subconscious, although you can call me marion, as D has given me that name now.

I wanted to take some time while e was 'away' to make a quick post myself. There have been so many interesting things going on lately that i thought i should add my two cents in, coming from a somewhat unique perspective.

I thought that it would be good to talk a bit about do's and don'ts as far as hypnotizing is concerned, and things that you'd definitely need to keep a close eye on. Keep in mind that i'm not an expert and can only speak for myself and e.

It's really important to make sure you as the Dom or Domme or Hypnotizer, whoever you might be, keep very good track of what's going on with the hypnotizee. I think that D keeps somewhat of a running list of the major 'programs' that He's installed with me. This is really important so that one isn't giving conflicting messages. It will also help you avoid some of the more obvious pitfalls.

We luckily haven't run into a big conflict yet, where D tells e to do one thing that is in direct conflict with another, so i'm not quite sure what would happen. Either the new command would override the first, or the first having already been in place would stick, or some strange new combination would appear, having completely unpredictable results.

Another thing you want to keep very good track of is trigger words. When you implant a trigger for some specific activity, i highly suggest that you; 1. Use unusual words that your hypnotizee won't likely encounter in every day life and 2. WRITE THEM DOWN!!! It would be really unfortunate if you or someone else accidentally triggered something at a dangerous or embarrassing moment. Forgetting might be just as bad -- as weeks or months later you could use it unintentionally.

Both D and e have mentioned her "accidental pee" in the kitchen. This is a great example of another possible hazard with permanent triggers. e was programmed that when she snapped her fingers i would blank out the memory of what would happen and she would wet herself. There weren't any conditions put on this trigger, so she snapped and i delivered in technicolor.

Choose your words carefully; think about what you want to say before you say it. i'm fairly certain that D often writes out His commands before they are given to us to avoid any mistakes or unexpected turns. A few badly placed words and your hypnotizee could be in an unpleasant situation. You wouldn't want to frighten or hurt her, unless of course you meant to.

So are there limits where e/Marion would not carry out an instruction? Knowing e is submissive to begin with, does she have hard limits? I guess the closet comes to mind as something that needs to be worked out, but in other literature and discussions, there are blanket statements that you cannot hypnotise a person to do something they wouldn't want to do to begin with.

Maybe I'm being paranoid, but what happens if a situation arises where a usggestion is implemented and then god forbid, D goes away permanently, does that suggestion stay, fade over time, can be overridden by another hypnotiser? I can just imagine, a command issued of not being able to orgasm unless D's voice tells you to, and then D get's hit by a bus...would you be screwed then forever?

Of course I can be dark sometimes...!

It may be a reflection of my own turnons,but I kinda liked the story of the wetting in the kitchen...and hope E looks back on it with amusement too.
I agree that there needs to be consideration given to what happens if the dominant suddenly becomes unavailable.
So what does "Marion" think of "Rosie"?

As far as triggers go, I use two types of trigger - one, short term, intended to be removed at the end of the session, which is just some random word or action that can be slipped into conversation. The other, the long-term trigger, follows a naming convention along the lines of "{begin} {keyword} {end}" with the begin and end phrases the same each time, and in such a way that the combination is unlikely to come up in conversation...

I talked with marion briefly about what she would do if I disappeared, what would happen to all those standing commands? She'd rather not think about it, but she says she's just not sure. She thinks they'd fade over time, but she's not sure how long. (It's interesting to know that the subconscious doesn't have all the answers either.) So I'm thinking about giving her an explicit command, after I talk it over with e.

On a different subject, marion is perfectly fine with Rosie, and is the one who gets to 'watch' her and make sure she's doing her work right.

grey_shadow, that's a good approach to 'safe' triggers. I use a slightly less secure method for all my triggers -- basically anything beginning with a particular code word becomes either a command to be carried out, or is a comment addressed solely to e's subconscious.

K on the other hand has used a fairly common term as the single trigger word that sends c into trance. I have now twice used that word accidentally in conversation with her... sending her off to a jungle scene and leaving me conversing with her subconscious, Megan, instead.

Thankfully, K has a rule against a trance occurring anytime risky, such as when c is driving.

I suspect that, when I find another long-term subject, it'll end up working out that the "{begin} {keyword} {end}" structure will start to work even with keywords that haven't been explicitly set up as triggers - provided the keyword is unambiguous enough for her subconscious to figure out what it's meant to do...

The expectation that it would work would be enough to make it work...
