Sorry to be a few days late with this one. Just got back into town from a very extended, unexpected stay in Florida. My apologies.


(Thanks to abby_normal for letting us borrow this cropped piece of the lovely drawing Finer Qualities of Some Things by wyna_hiros done for her story "Be Careful What You Wish For".)

Recommend a good story which depicts "bondage" (per the definition below) and was not recommended in the original challenge (see list behind the cut below). Any genre, any rating. This includes FP and RP.

Definition: (Adapted from Wikipedia) Bondage involves people (or hobbits or dwarves or elves) being tied up or otherwise restrained for pleasure. The restraints can be almost anything -- rope, silk ribbon, handcuffs, clothing, and, rarely, what practitioners call "verbal restraint" -- a partner telling you to remain in a particular position or risk punishment of some kind if you move. IMPORTANT NOTE: Bondage in this sense is NEVER non-consensual (the fantasy acted out may be about non-consensual situations, but the reality never is).

Post your recommendation as a comment on THIS entry please. Oh yes, and it doesn't matter if the fic is now unavailable online -- tell us about it anyway. Perhaps someone may know where it is hiding these days!

And remember, you can now recommend one of your own fics, but only after recommending someone else's. (Please put "SELF REC" in the subject line for clarity.)

Links to all previous responses to this challenge are below the cut. They are links to the recommendation, with the name of the story recommended and the name of the individual recommending it as the link, and any information about corrections to the URL included.
