Unmarked Place Introduction Post

Welcome to Unmarked Place, a bandom BDSM ‘verse written by [livejournal.com profile] kat_lair and [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666.

Synopsis: The ‘verse spans a period of approximately six years and revolves around a BDSM club called Unmarked Place. The club is owned by Bob and Patrick, who also started the New Jersey Chapter of The Family, an international organisation of likeminded people involved in the BDSM scene that aims to provide safe places for play and punishment. People can either be born into the Family (like Spencer) or sponsored and mentored in (like Patrick). The ‘verse follows the evolution of various relationships (for full list of pairings see below) and includes love, sex, kink, angst, humour and eventual happy endings (because the authors are saps).

Characters: Please see the Unmarked Place Cast List and the Family Profiles.

Pairings: Patrick/Pete, Jon/Spencer, Ryan /Brendon, Bob/Mikey, Gerard/Frank, Gerard/Ray/Frank, Alex/Ryland, Victoria/Nate. Please note that this list is not comprehensive and the ‘verse is likely to include other past/casual/as-of-yet-explored pairings. The pairings for individual stories vary and will be included in the header info. See also: pairing tags.

Rating: Due to the content, the overall rating for the ‘verse is NC-17/18+/Mature. The ratings for individual stories vary but are included in the header info. See also: rating tags.

Kinks: If you are looking for a non-stop explosion of kinky porn, you will be disappointed. This is a story about how people go about their normal lives – work, play, love – within a context of BDSM relationships. The emphasis is on the negotiation and practice of d/s dynamics and power exchange rather than on sexual acts. Saying that, there will also be plenty of that so please heed the warnings See also: kink tags.

Kink disclaimer:
This is not a ‘how-to’ manual to kinky sex. While the BDSM practices, techniques, relationships and dynamics described herein are realistic as far as possible and based on the authors’ personal views and experiences, as well as a good deal of research, they are used for fictional purposes. There are stories here that deal with what happens when people get it wrong, including descriptions of some unsafe practices. We hope it’s clear when that’s the case, but as a rule you should never use a piece of fiction as the sole guide on how to do things. Inspiration yes, go for it, but not as a guidebook. Finally, it is important to emphasise that the dynamics, relationships and the structured context of The Family as described here are only one way to ‘do BDSM’. We are not suggesting it’s the best way or that it would suit everyone.

General Disclaimer: This is not a story about real people, but about fictional representations of real people. Authors are fully aware of the distinction between the two. None of this is true, no disrespect is meant and no profit made.

Stories: You can find all the fics in the 'verse listed at the Story Indexes.

um i'm pretty sure i knew you like two years ago when i was [livejournal.com profile] rawkenr0ll and this was just something you were talking about back then, and i was really excited about it, and i am sooo happy to be back because i have several verses a lot like this one that i used to rp, as in they're kink-based but based mostly on people's psychology, character development, normal lives but through a d/s and/or s/m context. man. i am so excited to hear that something came of this. i am hyped to read ALL OF IT and as soon as i do i would be happy to like cheerlead you on in developing/writing/commentficcing whatever. and maybe (just maybe) i'll write my own, because holy shit i have years and years of rps worth of ideas.

anyway i'm babbling I'M HAPPY THIS EXISTS, YAY YOU~

oh, the rps i was talking about were just me and one other person playing out a cast of about... 30 characters, maybe? something like that. pretty much what you have going here, but we did it in a POV switch-off because it was rp, which means it's tragically unpublishable. and also my logs are scattered across about four or five machines now.

and i wasn't implying that i wanted to invite myself in and write something. your sandbox is your sandbox, i've got my own sandbox and toys. so far you don't even have any pairings i would even want to write, lol.

alright, following the comm and friending you. glad to have found you again!
