What’s in a name?

Apparently a lot.

As I mentioned before, it’s been disturbing how easily m has taken to calling me Mistress. Mistress this and Mistress that…I even get a Good morning Mistress, every morning. And on his blog, before I’d even decided on a name, he was calling me Mistress Kitten.

I started out my foray in d/s as subkitten. That was my nick on alt and at the time, I was stunned that it hadn’t been taken already. I guess it’s just an indication of how there used to be very few people ‘into’ d/s before it became cool and goth. On collarme, I was kitty in japan (because at the time I was…lol).

Then when I made my first blog on livejournal, I became subtle. It was a bit of a personal joke, because I knew that there is nothing ‘subtle’ about me, but somehow, calling myself  in your face, just didn’t have the same ring to it. For some reason, when I made my blog, I didn’t want the word ‘slave’ in the title. Although my catch phrase was ‘…a subtle slavegirl’, something stopped me from actually putting the word ‘slave’ anywhere on it. Maybe deep inside I was not wanting to brand myself with the title ‘slave’.

So now I’m Mistress Subtle.

You may call me Mistress 😉

I haven’t decided on an official name for my boy yet. I usually alternate between petmy greedy little slut boy and love crumpet. We’ve both decided that we think boi sounds a bit gay, so we’ll be staying away from that…until I get him a maid’s outfit.

Speaking of brands and names,  remember that thing I have tattooed on my ass? That thing that says, ‘slave’?

Yeah. That thing.

I’m actually okay with it. I think of it more as art than anything else and I suppose if I really wanted to stretch things, I could say that I’m a ‘slave to love’ *snickers*

Actually I’d be more inclined to tell anyone clueless that asked, “It means, ‘epic'”. Because, well, I totally am epic…lol.

Last weekend I changed my status on Fetlife to ‘Mistress’ (I was playing with the idea of ‘top’ or ‘dominant’ or something else, but settled on Mistress because I figure I can call myself whatever I want at the end of the day…) and I had m change his to ‘sub’ for the time being. He still has a lot of questionable pics of me on his profile that I’ll have to ask him to make private. I’ve already deleted all my questionable pics over there and I need to take some new ones – some pics depicting our current situation. I do think the video that m has on his profile of him kissing my ass is totally appropriate though, so it will be staying there for the foreseeable future.

  1. Maybe you have answered your own question in relation to your name on your profile and in life generally – have just done a search on fetlife and neither “Mistress Epic” nor “Ms Epic” are taken or perhaps even just “Epic”. Let’s face it sweetie – it’s been an Epic journey you have both been on and I think it would be a very fitting title for you. Have also been wondering about a name change for you isince you posted about the power exchange that has taken place. Have been wondering what you might choose. to call yourself and perhaps a fitting explanatory footnote would be that you are “Epic by name and Epic by nature” xxx Ms B

  2. sorry that should have been one “i” in Emporium – my blog typings is black on black so not easy to spell-check ;-P
