FIC: Spontaneous (Leather in Lawnville; original slash)

Title: Spontaneous.
Author: Dusk Peterson.
Where to find me: Website, DW/IJ/LJ/list.
Series: Leather in Lawnville, the adventures of a suburban leatherman.
Category: Original slash.
Length: Short story (4,000 words).
Feedback: Yes, please.
Rating: NC-17.
Warnings: SM, M/s subplot, and severe misuse of lime gelatin. Boilerplate warning for all my stories.
Note: This is an oldie, but I'm about to repost the whole series, so I figured I'd announce this story for the sake of new readers.
Summary: Can an Old Guard top survive in a world with safe words?

Thinking about it, I've decided that bringing Jell-O to a gathering of leathermen wasn't my big mistake. My big mistake was bringing it on the night that Master Trent was attending.

Plus, two recent e-books:

Debt Price (Master/Other). No one would pay his debt price to gain him release from prison. So he sought to pay it himself by offering the only thing he could, his body. But one man would require more. ¶ R; gen/slash; historical fantasy; prisonfic, slavefic.

Searching (The Eternal Dungeon). Walking into a trap may be the only way to create one. ¶ PG-13; gen/slash; historical fantasy; prisonfic.

Summary: In 1965, Loren was initiated into the mysteries of leather by a motorcyclist passing through his isolated Midwestern town. Twenty years later, he is owner of the town's gay bar, which serves as a leather bar after hours. He is a master, trained to control and discipline men.

If only he could convince other leathermen of this fact. Having given up hope of ever finding someone who will submit to him, Loren is forced to content himself with secret fantasies. Then he meets the perfect man for his fantasies: handsome, uniformed, full of confidence and strength. But Loren doesn't realize that Ken holds secrets which will initiate them both into a new mystery. . . .

From the back came a quiet voice. "The master makes the slave happy."

A couple of awards-related pieces of news. First of all (as I mentioned in passing in a previous post), the Titanium Whips Awards for BDSM fiction has announced that the 2006 winner in the original fiction category is Verdict, by Parhelion, which was originally published in the October 2005 issue of my gay e-zine True Tales.

True Tales was nominated in the Best Erotic E-zine category, alongside some other nominees that . . .
