It’s true you can’t hypnotize someone to do something they really don’t want to do. It’s also true that we all have desires we secretly want to act on but deny ourselves. My gift is finding the key that opens the door and unleashes those secret longings. For the Amazon Princess, spirals were the key. I should have known given how she spun to transform herself from a dowdy secretary to a most delectable damsel! I showed her a new spiral, a whirling kaleidoscope of colors and subliminals and the door unlocked. WIth eyes blank and jaw slack, she admitted all the repressed wants she’d refused to acknowledge: feelings of superiority, a desire for dominance, and an aching hunger for what she’d always denied herself. I merely gave her permission to act on those desires.
She’s still largely a hero to the public these days, still saving innocents in peril, throwing supervillians in jail, rescuing cats from trees, that sort of thing. But privately she’s embraced her secret desires, the new costume reflects her acceptance of her long suppressed carnal needs.
Of course, privately I’m more than happy to satisfy those needs. Of course, she also has that desire to dominate her inferiors, I can’t help her there as she’s far too grateful to me for my gift to her. I’m doing what I can to help her here as well though. It’s easier than you’d think, many of the other heroines already deferred to her and secretly some part of them wants to fully submit to her. I’m just going to use my gifts to help them to acknowledge what they secretly want.
I think we’ll start with Batgirl…
