I like reading stories that have happy ever after endings and I like writing stories, even erotic romance, that have happy ever after endings. The stories can also contain bdsm scenes in them. But I do like happy ever after. I always have from what I remember.
When I stop to think about the “why” behind this, I can’t put my finger on it exactly. It’s the way I think, it’s what I respond to. The world is dark and I don’t need reminding of the struggles that we face between good and evil. I want to see good triumph — even if the protector is a Dom or domme who can offer a good spanking.
Maybe it’s because I know love is not cheap or easily bought. And those who persevere in love deserve happy endings. Maybe it’s because I want hope and I want to give hope to the characters and to those who read.
My own erotic writing does not come from a quiet house or a settled life. Every day is almost turbulent, chaotic, and unpredictable. There’s constant noise and I fight interruptions every moment almost every day of the week.
So it’s cutting through the chaos that I the lovers in my stories to come together, embrace each other, and embark on a journey that may not be perfect. But it can be “happy ever after.”
