Original Manip Files

Published on December 14, 2011

Director's Commentary

This series was absolutely one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had since I started manipping. I actually had very little to do in the way of alterations. There was the removal of some body piercings, swapping out a head with a better facial expression, and adding a pair of goggles to the last few pics; but really that was it. These pics were so perfect to begin with that my work really took place in the writing, which was, as I’ve intoned, terrific fun.

    This is SO much fun. It’s a great set of photos, as you noted, and I think you matched the writing to them *extremely* well. It’s exceedingly hot, of course, but some of the little touches are also fabulous. The reference to “The Russian fellow,” for example – really great stuff. I can definitely see why you had so much fun with this series!

    Spiffy! I can see where the images demanded to be worked with, what a great steampunk setup. And what good hands it fell into! Very nice work.

    My word!
    Good gracious.
    This is a rum do if I ever saw one.
    Why, I do believe the good Marquis is nothing but a bounder and a cad. I shall have him expelled from his gentleman’s club forthwith. Moreover, I shall write a strongly worded letter to the Times about his ungallant behaviour….

    Don’t worry, Irene. i will rescue you.
    [sounds of a brief, not very serious struggle] 😊
    Oh dear, chloroformed, captured, disrobed, and displayed
    in His implacable and inescapable restraints already.

    Soon, His entire vast army of diabolical physical and psychological tools and techniques will be arrayed against my vulnerable mind, body, and soul. With any luck, by tea time, i will be nothing but yet another well corrupted whore kneeling nude at the Marquis’ feet and tremblingly eager to do His bidding. Yum!
