Ah yes, Taboo Tuesday time again. So wonderful that we have this day to engage in things that might just be outside the pale of what's considered "normal." http://tdbloghop.blogspot.com/ 8-10 sentences from a taboo, dark, or edgy erotic work, or a 100-word blog post about a specific taboo, dark, or edgy erotic work- depending if a person is sharing from a WIP or a published book or is blogging educationally or a review.
I decided today to share from a Camp NaNoWriMo WIP- check out https://campnanowrimo.org/sign_in if you're unfamiliar with this fun writing challenge. I wrote a spin-off of my Vala's Story serial. Psst- my BR hasn't even read most of this book, except for some snippets as I was writing and I asked for her help without telling her too very much :D . 5 hopefuls are brought to the mansion to see if The Queen wants them. This scene shows his slave Viviana and the nicknamed "Ms. Fifty Shades" Danielle, who did a lot of lying on her application. Viviana starts. Please forgive the few sentence too many- it was tricky to carve this right.
"Did you read some trashy erotic romance with a whip-wielding Master and decide you wanted that?"
"Why should I answer you?" You aren't the Master.
"If you haven't figured it out yet, this is not a romance novel. You aren't going to steal The Queen away from us. We're all one big family and if The Queen even decides to keep someone as dense as you, you have to learn to be kind to other fourth class slaves."
"I don't remember Simon saying anything about that." Danielle watched the Latina's expression change to anger. Fuck, did I just say something I shouldn't?
"That would be 'my Lord Simon' or 'our Lord Simon' coming out of your filthy mouth, but I'm sure he explained it to you. All the other hopefuls are working together with us fourth class slaves. Why aren't you? ..."
What do you think are the layers of taboo from this snippet?
