Story Challenge


Your challenge, should you choose to accept it: **write a story themed around THE POWER OF NAMES!**  
True names, secret names. Nicknames, fake names, pet names. Contracts and binding names. “Don’t tell the fae your name.” Names to control you. Names to change you. The secret meaning of your name. “Your name is who you are… or is it?” A gambler accidentally trades away his true name at the slot machines. A man discovers his affectionate pet names for his husband are influencing him in more ways than one. An office worker gets pranked with a name badge reading “Richard Sucker”… and now the whole office is convinced he’s a total blowjob slut! A linguist attends a ‘naming convention’, and discovers that name-dropping can be dangerous when it’s literal…  
**The possibilities are endless. What's** ***your*** **story about THE POWER OF NAMES?**  
We'd love to see your own spin on the prompt! You're also very welcome to take inspiration from any of the ideas above, if they appeal to you.  
This story challenge crosses all three sites, meaning your story can be about mind control, BDSM, a romance, or any combination of options. Good luck, and have fun!
The following requirements are enacted for this challenge in addition to the usual site rules:  - The story must be clearly inspired by the challenge prompt.  - Authors of challenge stories are anonymized by the system, and not shown until the final results are up. This is to make voting more fair—and to keep up the suspense! - Authors can only submit one story to the challenge. - A single story with multiple chapters is okay to submit, so long as you upload the chapters during the time frame of the challenge. **However,** no additional chapters to your challenge story can be submitted after the challenge ends when we are in the three-week voting period. (Please note, additional chapters to your challenge story *can* to be submitted after the challenge is over, if you wish to continue your story later, but those chapters this will not affect the calculations of the final challenge results.)  
Challenge stories are ‘ranked’ based on a calculation combining their best 4 category ratings (aka, the badges) with how many unique Favorites they get. Voting for this particular challenge will continue for **three** weeks after the challenge concludes, at which point the Top 5 will be announced and all authors will be revealed. 
Submission deadline: July 24, 2023 at 11:59:59 PM GMT
Final standings available!

Rich is a cocky, hung asshole who thinks his dick is God’s gift to gay men. But Rich insisting all gay dudes are "size queens" doesn’t mean he’s right. Seamus and Quentin certainly aren’t. And it’s not like Rich repeatedly calling them size queens could transform them into cock-obsessed sluts eager to degrade themselves for a chance to service Rich’s big dick… right?

For the ambitious witch, where is the glory, the art, the challenge in using magic to make men into sex puppets? Pieces of meat pulled by magical strings? No, magic is just a tool - sometimes carrot, sometimes stick - to mold men into their best uses. Well, I've just found the guy my dick thinks is the right first candidate. When I'm done with him, he won't need a lick of magic to serve.
