Spanking A-Z Blog Challenge, W: Winter Storm Fairy Tale References

spank A2Z

 

I am so excited about today’s “W” post for the Spanking A-Z blog challenge!

I have been chomping at the bit for ages to talk about the symbolism in my favorite story.

Hehe, okay, it’s my favorite because I co-wrote it with Renee Rose and Casey McKay.

But even if we hadn’t written it, I am pretty sure it would be my favorite. 🙂

The Winter Storm is a fun, action packed, spank-a-riffic, romance with paranormal, BDSM and fantasy aspects to it. But did you know that a lot of the characters and scenes were based off fairy tale or bed time story references?

If you’ve read the story, here’s your chance to see how many you caught!

So here are all the fun references from the story. In random order

 

Jake and Jillian Hill – Siblings on their way to see the matchmaker. Jake falls down a hill and hurts his head. (That’s an easy one. Jack and Jill. Jack hurt his crown.)

The matchmaker lives in Grimmberg – taken from the many Grimm Brothers stories we perused, looking for ideas for the story.

Banbury – Jake and Jillian’s white stallion. (This was a fun one to play with. In the nursery rhyme, “Ride a Cock horse”, the fine lady rode her white stallion to Banbury Cross. Banbury Cross happens to be on a steep hill, so that fit with my siblings traversing a big hill. But even more importantly, a cock horse is described as a high-spirited horse, or the additional horse to assist pulling a cart or carriage up a hill. From the mid-sixteenth century it also meant a pretend hobby horse or an adult’s knee. (from wikipedia). LOL, “riding an adult knee”, reminded me of a spanking, so it was easy to name their horse Banbury.

Spa- NK – the lodge that Bertram owns, and the central location of the stories. It’s easy to see the word “spank”, but do you know what the “NK” stands for?

North Kristiandom – the land our MC’s live, is taken from the name of a very well-known author, Hans Christian Andersen. Hence, “Kristiandom”.

Bertram B. Wolfe – a shapeshifter, whose initials BB Wolfe, (Big Bad Wold), have even more meaning, when paired with his “daughter”, also known as

Redd – Bertram’s “little”. She is like a daughter to him. (LOL, I have not put a cloak on her yet. That would make it too easy!)

Faye Godmeyer – She’s half  fairy, and she’s about to become very special to Cindy, as special as a godmother. But first she has to learn to use her magick wand 🙂

Cindy / the Stepmother – Cindy is Spa-NK’s sweet submissive, who also has a split personality. During the day, she continues all her chores and tasks, singing songs about nightingales and princes. But at midnight she becomes, The Stepmother, the hottest Domme around. (It seemed like a fun idea to cross Cinderella with the clash of the strong matriarch.)

Cade Lupus- a shapeshifter and cousin to Bertram. This had a very Harry Potter’esque feel to it. Remember Professor Lupin, the werewolf? This one’s much hotter, though. 🙂

Coral – A “mermaid lost” is a beautiful red head who is hiding from an evil sea witch. She runs the aquarium at Spa-NK, and uses the word “plankton” as her safe word with Jake.

There were a few smaller characters that made appearances:

Pino – the friendly but shy porter, who served everyone, had a very “puppet like” run, and confirmed several times, his incessant need to always be honest. (hehe, Pinocchio)

Bram- the Dom that first offered to “play” with Jillian in the dungeon. Bertram became very angry, and told Jillian to stay away from this “blood sucking bastard”. (obviously a vampire; and since  Bram Stoker wrote “Dracula”, it just made sense 🙂 )

Bertram made another maid cry, when he yelled at her for falling asleep on the job again – Her name was Rory. (this may have been hard to see. Aurora from sleeping Beauty)

At the beginning of the story, Jake took Jillian away from their village because she threw rocks at a disrespectful rich Lord’s house, and threatened to burn his house down. LOL, she also called him a pig. (I like pig references in stories with wolves 🙂 )

Both Bertram and Cade originally lost their girlfriends to three men. Tom, Dick and Harry. (It was later changed to just Cade’s loss. We thought it might be difficult for these three men to handle two feisty women. 🙂 )

Mrs. Hubber – is the woman who helps in the kitchen. She is elderly and has a lot of children. :)(old mother Hubbard)

Even though it’s not mentioned much, there is a spa at the back of the lodge (hence the SPA in Spa – NK). It was first run by a hair dresser and masseuse with reeeeeeeeeeally long hair. – ok, her name was Petra, not Rapunzel. There is an adaptation of Grimm’s Rapunzel, called, Petrosinella or Parsley (Wikipedia). LOL, the closest I could come from “Petrosinella” was Petra. There were a bunch of other cool adaptations, but no other cool names to work with, so the beautician became “Petra”.

The first time, Bertram spanks Jillian (with consent this time :)), he tells her to say “Peter Piper” if it gets to be too much.

Coral was being inattentive to her duties and let a known thief named, Robbie, into the lodge. He stole belongings from many people. (The next question is, did he give any of the loot to the poor? Robin Hood- easy!)

When Bertram catches his “little”, Redd, in a lie, she replies with,

“My, daddy, what big ears you have.” (hehe, ok, I had to use that. It was a must!)

Redd’s stuff kitty is called Mr. McBeakington, a combination of the names of the cats owned by the lovely Ms. Casey McKay.

The “Simple Simon” reference is mentioned a few times by characters, alluding to another character’s dumb comment or action.

When Jake offers his sister’s hand to Bertram, he gives Bertram a bag of coins as dowry. When Bertram tries to refuse, Jake asks if he would prefer a pig? (hehe, another pig reference for the big bad wolf)

Which reminds me, LOL, there was also a reference about Bertram being so angry at one point, he felt like blowing a house down.

And of course, what fairy tale story would be complete without an HEA? We have three, but one is actually quoted.

When Jillian and Bertram are about to mate (yeah, as in have rough awesome sex to seal the bond of their love), he asks her if she wants:

“Forever? ‘Til death do us part?”

 

She answers with,

 

“How about happily ever after?”

🙂

*****

Okay, there are probably more that I have forgotten. But that is all I could come up with for today’s post.

So how did you fare?

Did you catch all the symbolism?

Were any of them new to you?

LOL, did I miss any?

Thanks for stopping by. Since I have already capped out at 1043 words, I won’t be able to share an excerpt. But I am attaching the link for the first chapter, which can be found here.

winterstorm

In a world where fairy tales and real life collide, in which truth is sometimes stranger than fiction and romance and fetish are the norm, a winter storm forces a cast of characters to converge at a unique lodge, and three interwoven tales are set in motion.

Jillian and her brother narrowly escape a wolf attack, thanks to a shapeshifter, Bertram. As the owner of the lodge, Bertram opens Jillian’s eyes to a whole new world filled with spanking and so much more. Will she keep fighting her submission, or allow herself the chance for true love?

Coral is a fugitive—hiding from herself, her true desires, and the sea witch to whom she owes a great debt. She fears showing real emotion and letting herself be free, but Jake Hill’s dominating presence beckons her to yield to him—not just her body, but her heart, mind, and soul. When the sea witch demands retribution, though, she may lose the one man she has come to trust.

When Faye blunders while casting a spell upon her landlord, he claims her as his slave until she can undo the magic, and she finds herself subject to his firm discipline. As her attraction to him grows, Faye fears she will give in to the handsome shifter and forever lose her maidenhood, and consequently her powers and the ability to fix her mistake.

Even as all three women struggle with surrendering to the dominant men they have fallen for, each finds herself on a journey to discover her true self. Can they find a way to yield to love without losing themselves in the process?

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

He heard the screams, and spurred his horse to go faster.  He rounded the final snow bend and saw the five wolves circling closer to their prey. A woman stood defiantly, trying to protect the prone form on the ground from the advancing wolves. Her emerald eyes shone with fear as she struggled to maneuver the heavy sword.  He jumped off his horse and ran toward them, forcing himself to remain calm.

The wolves saw him, and turned their backs to the scared, angry young woman, baring their sharp teeth as he advanced.

“Go!” He commanded. “This is no meal for you.”

The pack leader growled and crept forward.

He tensed, flashing his golden amber eyes at the leader, and growled.

This was a fight he intended to win.

The leader stopped his movement and cocked his head, sniffing the air.  He must have realized his foe was more dangerous than he looked. He barked at the remaining pack, and with one final snarl, charged into the woods in search of other, easier prey.

The young woman watched him cautiously, her green eyes widening as he strode toward them.

“Don’t come any closer!” She held the sword higher, trying not to falter under its weight.

He tried not to laugh. “Do you even know how to use that thing? It weighs more than you do.”

“Pointy end goes in the heart! Now go away!” she used both her hands to point at his advancing chest.

He looked down at the young man, lying in a crumpled heap in the bank of snow, his pack next to him.  A pool of blood stained the white snow around his head.

“He needs help. If he stays out here, he will die from hypothermia or head injury, whichever comes first.”

He knelt down, and assessed the young man’s injuries.  No broken bones. He carefully picked up his head and wrapped his scarf around the injury.

“How’d your husband get hurt?”

“Um, my brother, not husband. He kinda accidentally fell down the hill.” She faltered and dropped the sword.

“Kinda. Accidentally?” he raised an eyebrow and met her gaze fully.

The petite, pixie like brunette, flushed. “I, um gave him a little shove, and he fell.”

He nodded. Siblings.

“I didn’t mean to hurt him.  It was an accident,” she rushed.

He held his finger up, silencing her with a stern look.  “We don’t have time for explanations.  He needs medical attention.  We need to get him back to my place, and fix him up.” He stood up and called his horse to him.

She leapt for the sword and swung it at him, her green eyes sparkling defiantly. “We are not going anywhere with you! I don’t trust you not to try to steal all our belongings and kill us.”

He rolled his eyes. They didn’t have time for this. And this little pip squeak of a woman was getting on his nerves.

“The next town is over 20 miles away, and there is a huge storm blowing in.” He looked at the quickly darkening sky.  My place is only a few miles down the road. Besides, if I wanted you dead, I would have left you for the wolves.”

“Well maybe you want to have your way with me.” She frowned.

“Not likely.” He scoffed. “I like my women with a bit more curves.

She flushed and let out an indignant squeak.

He turned his back to her, and started to remove the saddle from his horse.  He would put the little minx’s brother on the horse, strap him down, and try to keep him from falling off.

He picked the young man up in his arms, and strode toward the horse.

“I have a better idea.” The young woman pressed the sword against his back.

He stilled.

She poked it a few times gently onto his back without breaking any skin.

“I am going to take your horse, and head to the town. It’s only a few miles for you. You can walk home.”

“Listen you little ungrateful brat,” he turned and glared at her.  “I am trying to help you. You will not be able to make it to the town before the storm hits.  Besides the fact, that this is MY horse.  You don’t take things that don’t belong to you.”

“Too bad! Now, stop your fussing, and put my brother on the horse.” she glared up at him defiantly.

“Little girl, you better put that damn sword down before you find yourself upended over my knee.”

He sensed her movement before she swiped the sword across his arm. He saw two drops of blood form through the cut in his shirt.

He knelt and placed the injured man on top of his coat, then set the pack on the ground.

“You’re going to regret that.” He growled and watched her eyes widen in fear, as he snatched the sword away from her easily, and pulled her to him.

“Don’t hurt me!” she shrieked.

He sat down on the pack, and yanked her over his lap.

“Oh there won’t be any permanent damage, but this is going to hurt. You’re going to get a damn good spanking. That’s how we deal with little girls who act too big for their britches where I come from,” he growled.

Before she had a chance to reply, he lit into her backside.

“Ow, ouch! Stop!” she flailed her arms and legs.

He gave her one hard swat, “Stop the drama. You can barely feel my hand through all these layers.”

He pulled up her dress and her petticoat, and inspected her panty covered bottom, barely pink from his quick warm up.  He would change that quickly.

“You can’t do this! I might get hypothermia!” she squealed and placed her hands across her bottom.

He chuckled and held her hands to her back, “Well then, we’ll just have to get you warmed up won’t we?”

He brought his hand down on the back of her panties again and again as she hollered and cursed.

“You are a big bully and a son of a bitch!”

He placed his hand against her warm bottom. “What. Did. You Say. About my mother?”

She tried to scramble away from him. “I’m sorry. I lost my temper. I didn’t mean… oof!”

He tipped her over farther, and yanked her panties down.

He brought his palm crashing down onto her bare bottom.

“Yeow!” she shrieked.

He made sure to leave no portion of her bottom untouched over the next two minutes.  When he had finished, she lay sobbing in a heap over his lap, all the fight had gone out of her, and her bottom was scorched and red.  He could feel the heat rising from her backside.

The first snow flake reminded him of their location.

Crap! He pulled her to her feet and yanked her panties up, and skirt down.

She whimpered at his rough treatment, but he made no move to apologize. The storm was moving in fast.

“We have to get back to my place before this blizzard hits.” He growled. “Even I have a tough time tracking in this weather.

She nodded her head, and bit her lip, and moved to grab the packs.

“Hey, wait.” He took her stiff form into his arms. “I forgive you. It’s over ok?”

He felt her melt into his arms and cry, and was torn between the desire to comfort her, and the more pressing need to get them all to safety.

He kissed her forehead, patted her bottom, and gave her a gentle shove towards the packs.

“You get the gear. I’ll get your brother.”

They got moving quickly, just as the flurries started.

______________

Jillian couldn’t believe that big…animal had spanked her!  No, she sighed, she deserved it. He had saved Jake and her from wolves, and had even offered to take them back to his place to give him medical attention.

Cutting him and threatening him was definitely not the right way to thank him. She would make it up to him, somehow.

She looked at the large, brooding man, whose face was furrowed in thought.  Was he angry about something? Or was her brother getting heavy? They had realized pretty quickly, that the unconscious man was not going to stay on the horse, so Mr. Wolfe, Bertram decided to carry him. Her bottom ached as she bounced on top of the horse.

“How much further?” she whined, regretting it when he gave her that look.

“Not much further, but it will take longer, if we have to stop and warm up your bottom again.” He raised his eyebrow.

She couldn’t stop the heat that crept to her cheeks. The memory of being over his lap was doing weird things to her tummy.

“So Bertram, what do you do for a living?”

“I own a specialty shop and lodge. You’ll find it interesting, I’m sure.”

He must have misread her surprise as fear, “You and your brother will be safe, I assure you.”

“I wasn’t worried about that.” She scoffed and looked nervously at his large hands. They might be safe, but would her bottom?

“Sure,” he grunted, and shifted Jake in his arms. “So, where were you two heading before your unfortunate, ahem, accident?”

“We were going to that big town to meet the matchmaker.” She looked at the ground and mumbled. “Neither of us has had much luck finding mates in our village, so a friend suggested the matchmaker.

“Interesting,” he nodded. “Why?”

“Why what?” she asked, confused.

“Why do you have problems finding suitable mates? You’re a decent-looking woman.”

She rolled her eyes at him and grumbled, “Thanks. Honestly, Jake sais I’m too, um temperamental.”

“High maintenance? Feisty? In need of a good long spanking, often?” He grinned at her shocked gasp.

Bertram chuckled at her, “I can see that. But you just need to find the right man. Seems to me, you need a man as strong willed as you are.”

She shrugged her shoulders, feeling very uncomfortable with the subject.

“So what about you? Wife, kids?”

His face turned stony, then softened again. “Wife left a few years ago for Tom, Dick, and Harry in another town.”

“All three?” she gasped.

“Yep,” he smirked. “But I took the settlement earnings to build my place, and am living happily with my…” he paused, “daughter. We get a lot of visitors, so we don’t get lonely.”

He slowed his walk, and met her gaze kindly. “I know you feel badly about your brother. Don’t worry, we’ll get him fixed up.”

The tears filled her eyes, and she nodded in thanks.

“All right. It’s just around the bend. You are both welcome to stay as long as you like, as long as you obey the rules.”

She was about to ask him what rules he meant, when they turned the corner, and the lodge came into view. Mansion was more like it. It was huge! Bigger than five houses put together! It was beautiful and brightly lit with torches and lights.

The huge sign announced,

*Winter Spanks Fetish Shop and Play Lodge*

Come in, get warm.

Stay and Play.

She suddenly felt very warm as he stopped in front of the doors and called out for assistance. They were surrounded by help. A pair of strong hands lifted her from the horse, and she looked into the dark eyes of her rescuer. Bertram instructed the medics to take care of Jake as he led her by the hand into the front shop area.

Paddles, floggers, canes, and whips hung on walls. Every square inch was adorned with spanking paraphernalia. But her eyes were drawn to the beautiful pictures of the women, with glowing red bare bottoms. Some crying, some laughing.  She felt so drawn to them.

“Daddy!” She turned to see a cute red haired young lady, about her age, fling herself into Bertram’s arms.

They hugged for a moment before he scolded her about something, swatted her on the backside, and sent her on an errand.

The feisty red head scowled at her before flouncing out the door.

Jillian met Bertram’s eyes, and moved to his place by the counter.

She looked up at the sign above his head. “B.B. Wolfe. Co-owner, Operator”

“So. What do you think?” he grinned and gave her a toothy smile.

“It’s interesting.” She shrugged noncommittally.

“Well, I’m glad you find it interesting.” He placed his hands behind his head. “You’re going to be here awhile.” He looked outside at the growing storm. “If you’re a good girl, I’ll let you try out some of the implements.” He winked.

She bit her lip and sucked in a breath, the excitement growing in her. He had read her so well. She looked around wide eyed at all the different implements, her bottom clenching involuntarily.

“And what if I’m not a good girl,” she whispered and licked her lips.

His huge guffawing laugh shook the rafters.

“Little girl, you are going to get a lot of spankings while you are here. The choice is yours, about what kind you get.”

He took her hand and led her to the inner door of the lodge.

“Let’s go check on your brother. Then we’ll get you settled in. Then…” his smile broadened, “you’ll get your first spanking as a guest.”

“Welcome to Winter Spanks.”
