Settling In - Spirals - Part 3

 Key: MD, MC, Hypno, Plot

Description: In an effort to calm his temper, Xander stops by a coffee shop and finds the perfect tool to get his revenge on Nadia.

    Xander was walking through the streets of New Chicago like a man on a mission…but in reality he had nowhere to go. He was just...angry. His encounter with Nadia at Spirals had put a completely opposite spin on what was supposed to be a fresh start for him. Now he was being asked to work with a woman who was instrumental in his ending up in a Depressor for ten years. A woman who, as far as he was concerned, was responsible for destroying his life.

    He took a few more steps and then stopped, balling up his fists and grunting through his teeth in frustration. It wasn’t really Nadia’s fault…not entirely, anyway. She did throw him under the bus, to save her own skin no less, but he had also let the Depressor win. She didn’t drive away the people in his  life…he did. And he knew it.

    He closed his eyes and took a deep breath, focusing on the tension and anger in his body and pushing it down into his chest. At least he could keep it stored there until he could safely punch something. Repeatedly.

    Finally, with his temper under control again, he continued down the street and began planning his next move. Revenge was such a costly endeavour, but so worthwhile in the end. But what was the best way to go about this? He pondered for a while until the simplest solution came to him. “The best revenge…is success,” he mused to himself with a smile. If the hypnotist wanted to go against him, he’d show her who was better at mind control. After all, he was an incubus.

Settling In - Spirals - Part 2

 Key: MC, Hypno

Description: Xander goes to start his first day of work at the Spirals Nightclub, only to find that a lot more surprises await him than he originally realized.

    Veo exited the elevator with a smile, a secret source had told her that Xander had finally found a place to live and it was her intention to surprise him. As she made her way toward his apartment she was surprised to see the door suddenly open as a young redhead walked out. “Oh…” she said, the surprise evident in her voice “Good morning, miss!”

    It was then that she noticed just how disheveled the young woman’s hair and clothes were, to say nothing of the blank expression on her face. It was topped off very nicely by a lovely pair of glassy, dilated eyes. “I had a wonderful evening…” Kathy said in a blank, flat tone. “I slept at home…I had a wonderful evening…I slept at home…” the woman kept repeating softly as she walked past the angel without even acknowledging her presence.

    Veo, noticing that the young woman was clearly still in a trance, moved out of her way and let her pass. “Oh, I’m sure you did!” she said with a proud smile, giggling and knocking on Xander’s apartment door.

    Xander opened the door with a confused expression on his face, clearly not expecting anyone to be knocking so early. “Helloooo Veo!” he said with a warm smile. “Come in!” he gestured as he moved out of the way for his angelic friend.

Settling In - Spirals - Part 1

 Key: MC, MD, MF

Description: Xander tries to settle into life in New Chicago, but there are more surprises, good and bad, than he could have anticipated.

    It was late evening in the city of New Chicago, and the sun was shining brightly through the blinds of a penthouse apartment. The door unlocked and swung open as a gorgeous redhead, who looked to be about twenty-five, walked in. She was professionally dressed in a black skirt suit and held a clipboard close to her chest as she entered, motioning to the room around her. “As you can see…” she began “The west facing french doors and balcony still get plenty of light during the evening hours”
    
    Behind her stumbled in a visibly weary Xander, dressed in his usual black jeans and muscle shirt. He seemed to lack not only his usual energetic disposition, but also his defining red demon’s tail.

    “The living room is finished to give it a more rustic look,” the woman, Kathy, continued without skipping a beat “complete with a fireplace and wood trim to give it a kind of…cabin in the woods feel in the heart of the city!” she finished with a smile.

    Xander was actually impressed, however they had been looking at houses for the last seven hours and he had no idea how Kathy was doing it. He was an incubus...he was immortal…and he was just about exhausted. But she wasn’t even showing the first sign of slowing down!

Among Us (N.C.U./Spirals) - Round 2

 Key: MC, FD, FF, Hypno, Freeze

Description: The people have spoken, and Nadia has been selected to be removed from the group. But was she really the hypnotist? And if so, who was her accomplice?

Note: To help you follow along a bit better a map of the camp grounds can be found here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/42493367
There is also a link to a poll at the end of the story where you can help to decide who gets voted out, and change the course of the next chapter!

The Sitting Room:
    As Nadia sat down and glared confidently at Rayne, she heard the nervous, hesitant voices of the girls around her cast their votes, one by one.

    “Nadia.” Eve said. Even though she was confident in her answer, she couldn’t hide her nervousness about how the older, and much more aggressive, hypnotist was going to respond.

    Nadia shot a glare in Eve’s direction, only to hear Abigail respond with “Nadia” next. Unlike Eve, Abigail wasn’t worried about any repercussions from her mentor. She would have voted for Nadia regardless, just to see her get hypnotized and drained by the succubus.

    “What?!” Nadia shouted as her eyes widened in shock and rage. “What the fuck are you thinking!”

    “Nadia…” came a very timid, almost whispered response from Jessy. She seemed to be trying to hide behind Eve as she gave her answer.

Among Us (N.C.U./Spirals) - Round 1

 Key: FD, MC

Description: This is an interactive story that will be written based on poll responses from the readers! A group of young women from New Chicago head out for a relaxing, hypnosis free weekend, but …two of the girls have decided they have other plans. Can you help the girls figure out who the hypnotists are…before everyone is entranced?

    Camp Spirals, a former scout camp, was recently acquired by the mysterious owner of the Spirals Nightclub. Although the camp was renovated and in good shape as a result, it still needed some minor work to be done; after being abandoned for some time, the floors needed sweeping and mopping and there were some other small tasks that needed to be accomplished. Nothing that the girls couldn’t handle. In order to get a nice quiet weekend away from the city, ten young women who worked at or were patrons of the Spirals Nightclub had been selected to complete those tasks. The trip was all expenses paid, provided they finish all of the assigned tasks before the end of the weekend. (A map of the camp can be found HERE).

    Included in the group of young women were: Nadia, the assistant manager from the Spiral’s Nightclub, a fiery redheaded hypnotist with a devious streak about her. Abigail, Nadia’s protege, a brunette in her mid twenties who was constantly trying to one up her mentor. Dr. Stacy, a dark haired Elven surgeon, and her friend Eluran, a curly haired blonde elf who had just recently joined her friend for a visit to Spirals. Midnight, a seductive succubus who was acting as a hypnotized messenger for the mysterious owners of the club and, by extension, the camp, and Katheryn, a bubbly redhead who worked in the city's museums. Joining them were four students from New Chicago University’s Hypnotic Sorority, S.L.E.E.P. Eve, a grad volunteer with long flowing brown hair. Laura, a bubbly and excitable blonde. Jessy, an outgoing but ultimately nervous young woman with shoulder length brown hair. And finally Rayne, a short, muscular red headed freshman who was determined to control the girls of S.L.E.E.P.

    On the way to the camp, the young women came to a three part agreement. First, they would divide the tasks up at random to ensure that all of the duties were spread out evenly among them. Second, upon arrival they would set out to complete all of the tasks as quickly as possible, ideally before dinner, to give them plenty of time to relax and enjoy the rest of the weekend. And finally, they agreed that in order for the weekend to be completely free from stress, they would abstain from hypnotizing anyone during the trip so everyone could relax. All of the girls agreed. Two of them lied.

There are two hypnotists remaining.

I Could Usssse a Vacation - Part 2

 Key: MD, MC, MF, Hypno, Kaa

Description: With Victoria under Kaa’s spell, she lets him into her vacation villa for more of an intimate encounter. (This is a fan commissioned story!)

    Victoria walked through the resort with an energetic grin on her face. Her head bobbed softly from side to side with each step that she took, and she even managed to say hi to some of the other guests she passed in the hallway…of course, only if they said hello first. She was responsive, but focused on the task that had been programmed into her mind. The task that she needed to complete. Fortunately no one noticed her eyes, covered by her sunglasses but swirling with hypnotic energy as she made her way to her room.

    Her expression didn’t change as she entered her room and moved to the large picture window, opening it about a foot and pulling the blinds down as well. She didn’t know why she did this…but in her current state it wasn’t important for her to know anyway. Then she moved over to the thermostat and flipped the air conditioner off, setting the heat as high as it would go. At 78 degrees, it was much hotter than she usually liked, but for some reason it felt just right to her now.  

    As soon as her tasks were completed she couldn’t help but feel a wave of exhaustion washing over her. She moved to the chair and sat down, removing her sunglasses as she did...the hypnotic swirls were still visible even through her drooping, half lidded eyes. Little by little the grin on her face slowly faded away while her eyes slid closed and her head fell to the side, landing against the chair. She was too deeply asleep to notice the rustling noise coming from outside the window.

I Could Usssse a Vacation - Part 1

 Key: MD, MC, Hypno

Description: Actress Victoria Justice goes for a much needed walk in the forest near her vacation villa. Little does she know that something is watching her from the brush. (This is a fan commissioned story!)

    Victoria pushed open the door to the resort lobby with a relieved sigh. It was a beautiful day in early spring, the nights were still cool but the days were warm enough to allow for more comfortable clothing. In this case it was a tight tank top, a pair of equally tight shorts and some comfy shoes.

    She had booked herself a vacation at an out of the way resort secluded near one of the national parks. She couldn’t remember the name, just that it had been named after a military general or something...to be honest, she didn’t really care. All she wanted was the ability to get away from it all and get back to nature. Since it was the resort’s off season it was deserted, and those that were there wanted the solitude of the pool...or the bar. Which gave her the peace and quiet she needed to collect her thoughts. Alone, in the forest. What could possibly go wrong?

    She adjusted her sunglasses as she headed up the main trail. The air was mostly calm, with only the occasional breeze drifting through the trees, and it was early enough in spring that the leaves hadn’t fully grown in yet. Even though they blocked most of the sun, there was still just enough room for dozens of rays of light to filter through the forest canopy.
