Asthalia scared, helpless, then brainwashed to serve
(NB: Asthalia’s wonderful expressions are all visible during the shoot — we are just unable to show them in the trailer!)
Asthalia is in trouble.
Tranced to not know where they are, why they’re there, or who Sinister is, they’re suddenly hooded and shoved around. Their fear increased hypnotically, their reactions are genuine and it’s obvious in every pleading word and nervous motion. The repeated trances as that terror was built up stolen away, leaving them with no memory of it. Sinister is no help, of course, laughing at poor frightened Asthalia when they beg not to be hurt.
After enough time for them to really appreciate the disorientation and uncertainty, the bag on their head is removed and Asthalia is handed a set of restraints to buckle and lock onto themselves. They do so, even as they’re made to face the fact that it’s only going to make things a lot worse.
And of course, once the restraints are in place Asthalia is pinned against the St Andrew’s cross and their collar is padlocked in place. They barely have any time to nervously fiddle with the locks before their wrists are secured too – quickly followed by the rest of them. Barely able to struggle, they’re helpless to prevent Sinister’s touches and taunts as he slowly exposes them.
Of course, restrained as they are it’s difficult to take their clothes off. So gradually they’re cut off, leaving Asthalia ever more exposed and fearful. Everything that’s done to them just reminds them of their position, and their pleas for mercy fall on uncaring ears.
Sinister is quite certain that Asthalia will start to accept what’s happening, though. Because he knows how open their mind still is. It takes only a few moments to pull them back into a trance, their eyes fluttering and body slumping into their restraints. Once done, Sinister puts them into a delightfully submissive and obedient space, bringing them back awake smiling and happy to be there. They ask very politely to be useful, to be stripped, to be abused.
This attitude which falls back into terror when Asthalia’s mind is returned with a snap of the fingers. The empty, obedient shell scares them even more, of course, but despite claims that “it wasn’t me” they really don’t have a way to ignore the fact that it happened. That they’re that easily controlled.
With only a small amount of “persuasion” with a leather strap, Asthalia is soon telling Sinister that they deserve what’s happening to them, that they want it. Anything to avoid more pain. Finally they’re given a choice – convince him that they’ll serve obediently and willingly, or have their mind taken away permanently, stuck in the obedient shell with no way back. Asthalia begs and pleads, doing everything they can to convince him… but of course it’s futile. Sinister has no need of their mind, and they’re left stuck to the cross, smiling and happy and patiently waiting to be useful.
Sinister topping, Asthalia bottoming.
