[RF] In the game of seduction, There is only one rule: Never fall in love. – Cruel Intentions

The desire for pleasure is the greatest weakness that all humans share. Everyone has at least one thing that they would do almost anything to acquire. Within life at Court, any Court in any Land, seduction is a way of life. It is a tool in both the Arts of War and the Laws of Power. As a female, I have been blessed with both a somewhat attractive form and the mind with which to use it strategically and tactically. I have no qualms about doing anything if my efforts end up being expedient.

A seduction takes time and attention, just as spellcasting or waging a campaign of war takes time. Your enter the spirit of your opponent, your victim and you learn about them. You learn what their likes are. You analyse you study them, ultimately, you make them fall in love with you by using charm, charisma, coquetry and anything else that will serve your purpose. But to quote the great seventeenth century French courtesan, Ninon de l’Enclos, that in seduction, disguising one’s intentions was not only a necessity, but it also adds pleasure to the game. Avoid the false desire to please your mark by expressing sentiment for them. This can both annoy and offend.

In other words, never be in a hurry to tell someone that you love them, even if you do. Let them tell you first. After that point, what is decided to do with them is completely up to you. Hold back telling them and you can turn them inside out by all the contortions they will try in making sure that their sentiments are indeed requited by you.

If at the end of the seduction you feel your victim worthy, you may start the seduction all over again. If, however, you deem them to be less than desirable, tipping them from your hand and disposing of them is really quite easy.

That is, of course, if you haven’t lost your head and actually fallen in love.

From everyone…how quaint.

It seems I have a completely different answer from a few months ago. Oh, wait, it is another test. 😉

You Are The Magician

You are powerful and wise – beyond what anyone can see.
Deeply complex, you have the resources to connect to the spiritual and material world.
You posses the knowledge to manipulate your life and the lives around you.
You also have a great healing power, should you choose to use it.

Your fortune:

You have unhidden powers that you have yet to tap into.
Soon, you will better understand how to use your intellect and intuition.
Believe it or now, you will discover how you can manipulate yourself and others for good.
You are at the beginning of a path of spiritual enlightenment.

Tell Me A Secret

“The challenge, therefore, is not in the keeping of a secret, but in avoiding telling it once too often.” – Julius Caesar

Secrets are like doorways or the lid to a Pandora’s box. Once you have thrown them open, it becomes very hard to close them again. I dont like to divulge my secrets because they are mine. I have borne my secrets in silence. I carried the deception of the circumstances around my daughter Maeve. I bore the secret of the ambition of a vengeful heart. And I kept well hid the secret that I wanted Sebastien to free me from being affianced to his one-time brother whom I knew I did not love – nor, in fact did he or could he ever love me. I silenced the cowardice within me that would not grant sufficient voice to speak of it. Those are the secrets to which the details have been revealed (or not) at the proper time and those things are likely to remain so.

Those are the personal secrets. There are others, of course. The secrets of strategy and the secrets of Power, those fascinations that I have held consistently to my breast, those are easier to reveal to you because so few will ever bother to become Power’s true understudy. I rest easy in the knowledge that most will only play at it and never fully understand. A person who does understand their role, even if that person is of the so-called weaker sex, knows how to hone al weapons at their disposal. In so doing you make yourself a force to be reckoned with. Everything is used, nothing is ever extraneous or superfluous or without a purpose.

Within that lies the laws of Power, the arts of seducing the unsuspecting and the underlying strategies of war. With these things in hand, a Prince may remain victorious over their enemies – no matter who they are or what shape they present themselves as. Such an astute observer of these secrets knows better than to make judgements about others. Even their enemies contribute to teach them still more of the secrets within secrets. With this knowledge one inevitably becomes master of one’s own destiny with no need for blaming anyone or anything outside of themselves for their successes – or lack thereof.

So there you have your secret. The question is, what will you do with it?
