A big (belated) present under the tree

Well, we have another surprise gift this holiday, a little late but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s worth the wait. Beck, author of the blog Beck’s Coordinates, has gifted us with a very substantial tale! Those of you who have been waiting for news about Sawyer and Brooke and their community of discipline-minded women will be thrilled to hear about this latest update. 😃

So check it out on the new Holiday Exchange page, or just click here to be taken to her blog: Wildcard. And be sure to let her know how welcome her gift is, just when we needed a lift to our spirits!

Site Tweaking

Hi Spankfans! Because the Christmas exchange stories page was growing so long, I decided it deserved to be its own page. (The 2020 exchange held a record number of submissions, with another story promised to come!) So it’s now under “Holiday Exchange” with this URL: https://alyxfic.wordpress.com/holiday-exchange/.

So the bad news is that anyone who’s linked to the previous “Links & Xmas Exchange” page (https://alyxfic.wordpress.com/links/) needs to change the link to the new page. I will leave the old one up for a couple of days, then will delete it. Sorry for the inconvenience! 😟  (Note: A quick way to check for broken links is to use a service like https://validator.w3.org/checklink. You enter your site url and it will check through all the pages on your site and provide a list of broken links. You can then go and edit the pages with broken link.)

The good news is that the Links page has also been updated as well (note the new URL);  I’ve removed some outdated info and fixed a lot of broken links. I’ve also added a couple of new links for your enjoyment. 😃   (Note #2: It’s interesting how quite a few women, including lesbians, like to write M/M discipline stories. I wonder if it’s easier to reconcile the power dynamic that way?)

Finally, if anyone wants me to change/remove their link, please let me know? Thanks.

Woo-hoo, another gift under the tree!

It’s a good thing I’m keeping the Christmas tree up well into the New Year, because there is another surprise gift underneath it! I wasn’t expecting this submission from well-known spanking author Claire Britain, but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s the best kind of surprise. 😁

You can find it listed on the Holiday Exchange page, or click here to be taken to the story on the Wayward Angels blog: 2020 Spanking Olympics. I thought it was brilliant, and if you do too, be sure to comment and let her know!

Christmas is not over!

Yes, technically it’s Boxing Day for some of you (we don’t have that tradition in the U.S., we have something more in keeping with our American culture called the “After Xmas Sales” 🙄), but I mean that the gifts keep on coming!

Robin sent me this little gem on Christmas Day, saying she’s not a bard and she hopes it’s not too late. Unfortunately my stupid spam filter prevented me from seeing this till today, but I’m sure glad I found it. I think you will agree with me that she’s penned a Christmas classic! ☺️

So check it out on the Holiday Exchange page, or click here: A Christmas Poem, and be sure to let her know how much you like her gift!

Well, it’s not gold, frankincense, or myrrh….

but it is finally done! 😝 My holiday story is up on the Holiday Exchange page, and I’m going to make you go there to click on it, because I do want you to admire the awesome list of stories we have this year! Do you realize it’s a record number of items submitted in this 2020 exchange? That’s fantastic! 🥳

I just want you to know that I’m really touched by that. I think it says a lot about our community, and about human nature in general, that this year — probably the most difficult one in memory for so many people — so many of you stepped up to try to make the season a bit more merry. 🎄

THANK YOU to all the wonderful individuals who shared their work with us. And THANK YOU to all of the audience members who made it a point to comment or otherwise lend encouragement — it’s the reason artists continue to do what they do. It means a lot to all of us, but it especially supports those who are shy or first-timers…the feeling of being seen and appreciated is the greatest gift anyone can give another human being, and that’s what you did. You all rock!  🙏  🥰

I’m sending out warmest wishes for the best holiday season you can manage under the circumstances. And I’m wishing for a better New Year to come. I don’t know what the future will bring, but I do know I feel more hopeful because we’re facing it all together. *hugs*

Mele Kalikimaka me ka hauʻoli makahiki hou! And peace and blessings to you all. Not to mention a “good grrl spanking” to each and everyone of you….I just wish I could deliver it in person.

Xmas story from my favorite brat

Or maybe not quite a brat, but she definitely would drive any top crazy! 😆 Mil has sent in a story that she managed to whip together (pun not intended) right before running off to be with her family for Xmas. As with so many stories, it was inspired by real events and therefore makes me laugh like only she can. 🥰

Check it out on the Holiday Exchange page, or if you’re lazy 😉 just click right here: Mil’s Half-arsed Christmas Story. And I would say leave a comment, but she really doesn’t need any encouragement. *rolls eyes* Just kidding — do let her know how much you liked it!

(P.S. I did finally finish my story, but it’s in Fizzy’s hands for proof-reading, so will hopefully be posted soon.)

A visual gift this time

I’m sure most of you are familiar with Xen’s work, and if you aren’t you should definitely check out her blog, In the Kinks. She said she didn’t have a chance to write a new story this year, but she wanted to contribute something, so she’s added new drawings to her Krampus story from last year.

If you’re unfamiliar with the legend of Krampus, it’s a weirdly dark character that appears in many European versions of Christmas tales. Xen has put her own kinky twist on the legend, and if haven’t seen the work of this talented artist, go check it out on the Holiday Exchange page, or go straight to her blog: Wicked Girls Reprise. Be sure to let her know how much you enjoyed it!

Another gift for us

I’m sure all of you readers are familiar with Peach’s Corner and the popular author who maintains that blog. Well, despite feeling “not festive,” Peach has gifted us with another story (about her characters Rosie and Dr. Ponsonby), and I’m very happy she has! You can find it on Holiday Exchange page, or click here to be taken directly to her blog: In the Times of COVID-19.

Be sure to leave a comment and let her know how much her participation meant!

(Geez, Peachie,  you wrote that quickly! I really MUST be the slowest writer in the world! 😝 )

TWO more gifts under the tree!

The very nicest thing about this holiday exchange is how the presents can be from tried-and-true favorite authors, or brand new discoveries. Both pleasures are equally delightful, and that’s demonstrated in our latest additions to the gift exchange.

I wasn’t familiar with lengendarydanger’s work, but am happy to have a story from this brand new (to the Xmas exchange, anyway) voice. Go on and check it out on her blog, Over The Knee Society: Charcoal For Christmas.

The other author, and her blog, Shae’s Fiction Ish, has been around longer, and she’s even submitted a story to the holiday exchange before. We’re glad to have her back, and you can find her story here: A Red Christmas.

Of course you can also find links to their stories, and all the other’s submitted thus far, on the Holiday Exchange page. Be sure to let them know how much you appreciate their gifts!

One more gift under the tree

It seems like only yesterday that I read Ash saying she had to start her story, and now she tells me she’s posted it! Gee, Ash, you’re really whipping ’em out these days! Either that, or I’m the world’s slowest writer. (Quiet! 😀 )

I’m sure most of you are familiar with this writer, so I don’t need to introduce her. You can check out the listing on the Holiday Exchange page, or click here to be taken directly to her blog: Mila Gets Two Tops. And let her know how much you loved the story by leaving a comment. 🙂
