Favorites of 2013

Chess camp has eaten my life, (Ithinkihatechessithinkihatechessithinkihatechess) but I put this post together throughout the year, and it would be remiss of me to miss posting it before the next year rolls around. I compiled this list over the course of the year, and I almost forgot to post it.

There are a few posts that were not written this year, and you will see a couple of authors pop up more than once, but hey, I read them all this year and some posts are just that awesome.

I couldn't find an actual title for this one, but this particular post was written by cat, of Be Pleasing Always. I found it to be incredibly hot...

Patience, from cat of Be Pleasing Always. This post says so much of what I have been learning this year, and I think it's an incredibly valuable and wonderful approach to submission.
I know that's two from cat, but how could I resist?

A Temple, This one is from Bleuame at L'heure Bleu. I was never able to form eloquent thoughts about this post, but I truly loved it. This was one of those posts that has really made a difference in my life, and I'm still pondering it.

My Most Important Job ,Written by Sir J of What Does It Mean To Be Dominant? it's just an awesome post.

"But What of Love?" Written by Her Liege at Her Liege. I have often mused on the impact of love on ttwd...

Service Sub Written by Morningstar at The Journey. This post is a wonderfully realistic take on service, and I enjoyed it immensely.

Whose Body is This?  By P Surren & E Surren at The Power of Surrender. I guess the whole body image thing is kind of a running theme for me, but I really liked the post and I enjoyed reading both perspectives.

Dominants: it starts with you, posted by Michael at The Journey. I just really loved this post, and I think it's a totally awesome look at how successful Dominance works. I'm inclined to believe all prospective Dominants should read this one.

I discovered this lovely little gem, at My Trousers Rolled. That post...It is a poignant and perfect expression of something that I have never been able to properly verbalize in any format.

grateful, by Greengirl at What I Wonder. What can say other than it's lovely, and it made me smile.

Safe Without A Word, written by Kaya of Under His Hand. I think that any submissive who has dealt with an injury can understand this feeling, and she said it so well...

Little Things, from For the Love of a Submissive. Because I liked it.

When Love and Hate Collide, By tori at Pain's Pleasure. Because it's a truth that is difficult to put into words, and I think she did so splendidly.

Kaya did it again with Fear, posted at Submissive Guide. Because that's it, that feeling of needing to take the burden from him in whatever form that taking might be...

Untitled post another one from Her Liege. Just because it's exquisite.

I hope that some of you have a chance to check out these lovely posts, and that you enjoy them as much as I did. Let me know what you think!


  1. Thanks, I've just checked a couple and they seem intriguing and moving so far, so I'm definitely going to look at the rest.


  2. Lil,
    I am so honoured to have a post of mine included in your wonderful list! I look forward to reading and re-reading some of them in the next week. Happy New Year!

    1. Oh Bleuame, that post has really stuck with me--I still pull it out in my mind and ponder it sometimes, so thank you!

      I hope that you enjoy the list! Part of my reasoning was selfish--I can go back and read them whenever I want without having to look for them, lol.

      Happy New Year to you too!

  3. Thanks for this list. Good to read what catches other people's eye...and I appreciate you recognizing excellence on other blots. Thank you!

    1. Blots?? Hate autocorrect ...blogs!

    1. scarlet,
      thank you! Next years list will probably be longer since I didn't start compiling this one right away.

      Thank you, and Happy New Year!

  6. Such a great idea Lil, thanks for posting this. I have read a couple of these posts and they spoke to me too. Will definitely have to check out the others!
