A PROCESS OF ELIMINATION
My name is Namiin Stone, and I live in fantasy worlds full of strife and full of grief - but, they are worlds overfull with love and longing, too. A tender ache in the space where darkness and desire coalesce into the surreal and taboo.
I am an adult artist and author with a singular story that I want to tell, time and time again: a father and his daughter caught in a romance fraught with tension, with desire, with an inescapable - and sometimes supernatural - need to be together. Proclaiming mutual, irrevocable, burning love that extends far beyond the bounds of family, flying in the face of social taboos without heed for consequences.
An ancient, unfathomable Incubus with intent set fiercely on seducing and claiming the heart of the girl that summoned him. The daughter that was made from him, the lover that was made for him and him alone. A girl who thought she was abandoned, unwanted and untouchable - only to discover through loss, grief, and an inexplicable haunting that she had not been abandoned at all; she had been stolen. She wasn't untouchable; she was only meant to be touched by one and one alone.
A kindly elven carpenter on an alternate fantasy earth, risking life and limb to be with his daughter in every sense, always on the precipice of slipping and letting baser, territorial, animal instinct betray how deep their roots run together. A daughter that must weave a tangled web of lies with a suitor she has never desired, in order to protect her father's reputation and prolong arousing fatal suspicion within their community. She sure does spend a lot of time with her old man after all; what a funny thing...
A young daughter lured away in a plot to unseat a benevolent king and paint him as a tyrannical warlord to his kingdom. She was told for years that he had been terrible in his fury, so much so that the forest itself took the form of a beast and devoured him alive after too long smothered beneath the marching boots of his bloodthirsty army. With nothing but her memory of the noble and stalwart man she thought her father was, she returns to his abandoned castle years later to find what she thinks is the ancient beast that tore his heart out. Bereaved, held captive, with none but the Beast for company, she slowly realizes that the outwardly cruel monster harbors the harrowed heart of a man, and his eyes are so familiar...
It may be thought that this reflects some trauma on the part of the artist, but while we have all experienced trauma in some way, shape, or form, these are not stories about trauma. In telling these romances, I wish to soothe myself through the abstraction of art, through the nuances of narrative, and through the assertion of authenticity.
I choose to be brutally honest about what heals me, to be so terribly vulnerable about what brings me joy, and let's be frank, since we're adults - to be viscerally open about what arouses me, what breeds base carnality in me.
You get to choose whether or not you want to be a part of that.
You will find romance here, you will find erotica here, and you will find pornography here, but I must stress abstraction. These accounts are wholly fictional, these people are wholly fictional, and any and all similarities to any real person - living or dead - is an absolute coincidence.
If this disturbs, affronts, or upsets you, I have not a single apology to offer, and I am simply not the artist for you. If this intrigues you, then I'm glad you found me, and I hope you enjoy what I've set at the table. Sample anything you like, and leave a tip if you feel so inclined. ♥
IF YOU DISLIKE ME AND MY CONTENT
You're not the first. You won't be the last. Congratulations. Do you want a medal for your olympic feat?
If you don't want to give me a dime because I or my content is Icky and Bad, but, you feel that you are a just and moral person who wants to fight injustice, abuse, and advocate for change where you can - then put your money, your time, and your advocacy where your big mouth is. Either donate to, or boost, the following charities.
Consider it a challenge. If you have the time to stomp on vulnerable indie queer creatives online for the rights of fictional characters that don't exist? You have the time to look into things that will actionably help the real world that we both live in, and the causes I hope we both can agree are important.
If you don't want to donate now that a degenerate challenged you to - that says more about your moral fiber and the strength of your character than it does about mine. You fucking coward.

"Protecting children from sexual abuse is a cause that everyone can unite behind. Often, however, the measures we take to combat child sexual abuse (CSA) are less effective than they should be, because they are driven by emotion rather than evidence. In striving to protect children from abuse, we may end up harming them and others."
Climate Emergency Fund
"The Climate Emergency Fund was created to support the individual activists and organizations working to wake up the public to the threat of climate change and demand action from our leaders. CEF's founders have been inspired by groups like Extinction Rebellion, which recently staged major protests in central London pushing the UK parliament to declare a climate emergency. Only by changing the dialogue and declaring an emergency will we be able to reach policy solutions that work.
Young people have also mobilized, understanding that the worst of climate change will hit during the prime of their lives. Public concern is finally growing as climate change becomes harder and harder to ignore. "
