The Erotic Mind Control Story Archive

From Tv Tropes

Look into the green hole, the lite green hole... you're getting sleepy, sleepy... all you want is to read more stories and to be hypnotized by the people on this site... sleepy, sleepy...
"When I snap my fingers, you will describe this website here."
"Yes, Master."

Is the subject of hypnosis Fetish Fuel for you? Then you'll probably like this website. Originally part of the newsgroup, it was spun off into its own website in 1996 by a man who calls himself "Simon Bar Sinister". The site contains a huge archive of stories from many, many users, and these stories tend to run the gamut from plausible to downright bizarre.

Their unifying theme is that they all contain some form of mind control, and that the mind control is somehow used as part of a sexual act. The most common use of mind control on the site is hypnotizing someone, and then using suggestions to make them orgasm while under. Another common use involves hypnotic alternate personality play, where characters in a story think they're sluts, Sex Slaves, and other stuff like that. We have a trope for the final common use -- People Puppets, combined with And I Must Scream.

All the MC stories on the site are categorized. What's your pleasure?

This site also has an official forum, available here, as well as a secondary spinoff forum here.

Quite infamously, fan fiction is banned from the site after Warner Bros. sent a cease and desist letter to the site in 1998. There are a few Star Trek and X-Files fanfics on the site, but these are legacy fics from before 1998 that weren't affected by the ban; fan fiction hasn't been accepted since.

Similarly, Transgender stories were removed from the archive some time ago, due to the generally correct opinion of the webmaster that Transgender / Mind Control fiction tends to use MC to enforce gender play, at which point the MC is more or less dropped.

Despite it having no "fanfics" in the true sense of the word, it still generally is a site for ordinary people to post their stories

Also, one more note: When direct-linking, it's recommended that you use the "" URL; while the site technically does still exist at its original home, that URL is deprecated. And slightly longer and harder to remember.

Hypnotist: ...and when I count to 3, you will tell me every single trope this website uses. You will have no memory of this trance. Do you understand?
Trope-Tan: (eyes half-closed and staring blankly ahead with her mouth hanging open and the rest of her body completely relaxed, says this weakly and in monotone:) ...yes... @_@


  • A Date With Rosie Palms: Gee, I wonder what the stories marked as "MA: Masturbation" contain? =P
  • A God Am I: Notably, the origin of the "Master PC" stories about a computer program that lets the user reprogram people.
  • All Men Are Perverts / All Women Are Lustful: Even if they're among the most restrained with their abilities.
  • All Men Love Ponygirls.
  • Anatomically Impossible Sex: Sometimes it's because the writer screwed up (or doesn't mind that what they're describing is unrealistic), sometimes it's because characters have Applied Phlebotinum that makes it work anyway, and sometimes characters attempt this and then find out that Reality Ensues (hilarity optional).
    • The story "He's The Greatest Writer" parodies this, in which a writer who failed Sex Ed forever finds out for himself how impossible the scenarios in his stories are.
  • And I Must Scream: A very large chunk of the stories marked "NC: Non-Consensual" revolve around the victim being trapped, aware of their situation but unable to change it.
  • Archive Binge: There are only about 10,000 stories... ranging from one chapter to hundreds of chapters.
  • The Artifact: This website has quite a few remnants of its original home at the Text Repository:
    • Actually it's still hosted with the A.S.S.T.R and is actually just an account under the A.S.S.T.R domain. It uses the A.S.S.T.R Webservers to serve pages. Hence the A.S.S.T.R error messages.
    • Whenever you try to access a story that doesn't exist, you get redirected to ASSTR's HTTP 404 page.
    • As mentioned above, the website keeps its original URL as a sort of "alternate" location. Please see above.
    • As mentioned in "Department of Redundancy Department", every story on the site is classified as "MC: Mind Control". This dates back to when it was a part of Of course, that website has a much larger focus than the EMCSA, and Simon's aren't the only stories around. This definitely helped in sorting newsgroups. In fact, all of the site's current tags come from an old 'standard' set of tags from that time.
    • Actually, not every story has the MC tag. Quite a few don't include it so you may miss out on these stories. Some times the MC is implied but not directly fixated on so the 'MC' tag is omitted to reflect this. It keeps people guessing!
  • Asshole Victim.
  • Author Appeal: Well, this IS a fetish site, after all.
  • Author Existence Failure, What Could Have Been: Well known author Blankpage, who was also a troper, died in early 2010 before finishing his masterpiece Chateau Aensland.
    • Sara castle, known for a series of related stories starring a villain known as The Confectioner, died in early 2011.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Stories in which the heroine (or hero) succumbs to the Obviously Evil mind controller and ends up a Sex Slave are fairly common.
    • Played with in the Super Hero category. At least one villain has the super heroines continue defending the world and another has a super heroine mind control a super villainess into becoming a hero.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For.
  • Template:Brainwashed: Another obvious trope use.
  • Bound And Gagged: Oddly enough, the stories marked "BD: Bondage and/or Discipline" don't feature this trope as much as you'd think.
  • Biggus Dickus: Well, it is a porn site. Sometimes they actually do cause problems for characters who both failed Sex Ed (and whose authors didn't) and lack the magic or ]]Applied Phlebotinum]] to make them practical.
  • Bikini Bar: One story centers about a guy getting his money "back" from girls at a bar he used to frequent, with interest.
  • Brainless Beauty: Lots of stories involve turning people into these. It's referred to on the forum as "bimboization". Blond hair is optional, but common.
  • Breast Expansion: Some stories, especially those marked as "GR: growth or enlargement of bodies and parts" There's also "LA: Lactation".
  • Break The Haughty: Many, but The Humiliation of Jane is probably the website's personal Trope Codifier, revolving around a nasty law student being given a drug that makes it impossible for her to disobey anyone. Permanently.
  • Buxom Is Better: Several references to women being more attractive due to their breast size. This even has a sub-section of the site: the GR: growth or enlargement of bodies and parts tag.
  • Captain Ersatz: For legal reasons, trademarked characters are not allowed to be used in stories, except for a few stories that were there before the ban was imposed. As a result, you'll see characters that are exactly the same as, say, Wonder Woman, but with a different name.
  • Color Coded For Your Convenience: The links to stories on the site have a different color underline that gives a general indication of what category a story falls under, such as male or female-dominant in a het fic, or which gender if it's a gay story. If the story contains none or many of these tags, there's a fifth catch-all color for it.
  • The Conspiracy: All sorts, including Ancient Conspiracy, Government Conspiracy, Nebulous Criminal Conspiracy, and others that don't necessarily fit into one of these categories. Not all of them are actually evil, though, and some even help the helpless.
  • A Chat With Satan: Generally, The Erotic Mind Control Story Archive has people with powers coming to (female) psychologists to tell their stories. Because the site is highly detrimental to free will, this usually ends in clients enslaving/Mind Raping the shrink after they've got everything off their chests.
  • Dead Fic / Orphaned Series: Far too many.
  • Department Of Redundancy Department: Every single fic on the site is labeled as "MC: Mind Control". For the main reason why, see "The Artifact". Also, it helps make the stories easier to sort; since it can be used as a catch-all, the servers don't need an extra algorithm to show all - just use the same stuff to sort things like ft and mm.
  • Dirty Mind Reading.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Never piss off a mind controller.
  • Doorstopper: Tim, the Teenage Mind Controller. 22 chapters, each of which the size of a short story, written over 11 years, with plans to continue updating it soon.
    • And plenty of others.
  • Emotion Bomb: The "lust" version has obvious applications; others may be useful as well.
  • Exact Words: Many mind controllers learn the hard way to be very, very careful about what orders they give.
  • Faux Action Girl: The stories classified as "CB: Comic Book Superhero" tend to fall under this trope. The heroines usually exist only to get defeated by the first supervillain with hypnosis powers, or vice versa.
  • Fetish Fuel Future.
  • Fighting From The Inside.
  • Freak Lab Accident.
  • Furry Fandom: Only 38 stories are this trope as of March 19, 2010. There are also no gay male furry stories.
  • Getting Smilies Painted On Your Soul.
  • God Mode Sue: Lots of the controllers, mildly tempered only by I Thought Everyone Could Do That.
  • Guy On Guy Is Hot: All of the fics marked as "MM:Male/Male Sex", natch!
  • Girl On Girl Is Hot: All of the fics marked as "FF: Female/Female Sex", natch!
  • Gone Horribly Right.
  • Happiness In Slavery.
  • Het Is Ew: Averted. Heterosexual stories (those labeled "MF: male-female sex") outnumber homosexual stories by almost a 2-to-1 margin. (As of March 19, 2010, there are 4,789 stories with heterosexual sex.) However, do keep in mind that the numbers for this trope as well as "Most Fanfic Writers Are Girls" below are unreliable. The FF, MF, and MM categories are not mutually exclusive, and some stories on the site are classified into more than one of these three categories.
  • Horny Devils.
  • Hospital Hottie: Many stories involve someone getting Psychic Powers from a head injury or other accident. I'll give you one guess as to who ends up being the first person to be affected by those powers.
    • Lampshaded in one story when a guy seems able to mentally control a nurse, leading to Hospital Hottie situations. But it turns out she was the one with the powers, reading his mind to see what he desired, then wiping his memory of the scene afterwards.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: Sometimes it's played relatively realistically, sometimes it's an actual superpower.
  • Hypno Fool: Some stories, typically those with stage hypnosis.
  • Hypnotize The Princess: And then have one's way with her.
  • I Thought Everyone Could Do That: Most God Mod Sue controllers that get more awesome powers than any other member of some Ancient Conspiracy group, will think their powers are between low and average, that it's easy for them and such should be as easy for others.
  • It's Not Rape If You Enjoyed It: So you meet some stranger who you think is really, really hot. The two of you go rent a motel room and have a night of really, really good sex, and then go your separate ways, never regretting any of it for the rest of your life. Does it really matter that your attraction was caused by Applied Phlebotinum instead of something more mundane?
    • Often overlaps with Rape Is OK When It Is Sci Fi.
    • Sometimes subverted: even if the victims enjoy it (physically), some of them will be hurt to the core by the fact that, emotionally, can't stop the abuse.
  • The Immodest Orgasm: Enhanced through mind control, even.
  • I Have Boobs You Must Obey.
  • Incest: Between siblings, parents and children, and other relatives, too. Stories containing incest are always marked as such, though.
  • Incompatible Orientation: Overcoming this obstacle and initiating the target into a new form of sexuality is sometimes played as Fetish Fuel.
  • Just Between You And Me: Some mind controllers give their subjects a detailed description of the fate that awaits them, either as a form of post-hypnotic suggestion or simply as foreplay.
  • Lolicon: Mostly averted. There used to be a Pedophilia category, but the category, and subsequently the stories, were purged over a decade ago, most likely due to this trope. There are still a number of stories set in and around high school.
  • Love Is In The Air.
  • Love Potion: Some even work exactly the way the user wanted them to!
  • Mad Scientist: If your story requires a Mind Control Device, this is the go-to guy.
  • Meaningful Name: There's a user named Jukebox whose stories are all named after songs. And those songs themselves are an indicator as to what the story is about.
  • Me Love You Long Time: Some stories have a guy of undisclosed race hooking up with an Asian girl. The guy is presumed to be white.
  • Misapplied Phlebotinum: Given the premise of the site, this is somewhat inevitable. At the end of one story,
  • Mind Control Device.
  • Mind Control Eyes: Averted. Most stories show the "look" of hypnosis realistically.
  • Mind Over Manners: Generally not used. Lose a fight with a mind controller, and you're almost certainly not going to be yourself afterward, even if said mind controller isn't evil.
  • Mind Rape: Some stories, especially those with so-called "hypnodommes".
  • Morality Chain: What keeps some of these worlds to face from Fetish Fuel Futures to The End Of The World As We Know It
  • More Than Mind Control.
  • Most Fanfic Writers Are Girls: Inverted. There are only a few known female writers; this is most likely due to the tendency of males to be more forward with their fetishes than females. The Yaoi Fangirl subtrope of this trope is averted, as there is a section labeled "MM: Male/Male Sex", but gay stories on the site (840 as of March 19, 2010) are outnumbered by lesbian stories (2,569 as of the same date). See also "Het is Ew" above.
  • Narm: Some stories harken back to all those horror movies of the 1950's that many real-life hypnotists wish never existed.
  • NSFW: Make no mistake: This is an erotica (read: Porn) site. Over 99% of the stories on the site include sex, and the other ones imply sex.
  • People Puppets: The other half of the NC section (unofficially termed "BC" -- body control -- by the fanbase) revolves around people being forced to watch / feel / etc as their body goes off and does it's own thing, often at the direct command of someone else.
  • Plot With Porn: Because of the erotica nature of the site, MC stories that have little porn or a lot of plot often warn readers about this fact, so you'll get your fapping done elsewhere.
  • Power Incontinence: One older story, Tales of the Institute, has a chapter in which the heroine gains the ability to read minds... but then her mind changes to match what other people think she is like. In other words, it's the complete opposite of the standard trope used most of the stories.
    • A more standard example is "I Volunteered". Because of a medical experiment, any woman who smells the main character's pheromones ends up an addicted sex slave incapable of living a normal life - so all he can do is seclude himself and hope that his Unwanted Harem doesn't end up getting any bigger.
  • Phlebotinum Induced Stupidity: Occurs in the above mentioned Bimboization stories, such as this one.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Kind of the point.
  • Psychic Powers.
  • Rewriting Reality: The various versions of the Master PC program displayed in the titular stories are limited to rewriting people, but that's usually more than enough.
  • Robot Girl: The stories classified as "RB: Robots", natch!
    • The "RB" stories often involve people being turned into robots. Sometimes even with their permission!
  • Rule Of Sexy.
  • Sex Slave.
  • Shown Their Work: Many of the stories by Wiseguy show this trope. Busman's Holiday is an egregious example; Wiseguy might be a hypnotherapist in real life.
  • Slave Collar.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: Often Phlebotinumally induced, in fact.
  • Three Way Sex: And it doesn't always stop at three.
  • Time Stands Still: Ironically, even though this is a very common feature of the hypnoplay that the site's users engage in, only 31 actual stories (as of April 12, 2010), all of which are marked "TS: time stop", feature this trope.
    • While TimeStandsStill as a hypnotic suggestion is used, TS stories are literal uses of TimeStandsStill -- there being much overlap between the Time Stop fetish (Yes, it exists) and Hypnosis Fetishes, apparently.
  • TV Genius.
  • Unwanted Harem: Not everyone with a harem of enslaved beauties planned on it. Perhaps you rescued them from someone who was using their talents for evil, or you have Power Incontinence and anyone who gets near you falls under your spell, or your first slave decides to go "recruiting" without your permission, or something else happens, and now you have to deal with all these people who are calling you "Master", say that they love you, and get very upset if you tell them to go away.
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: Some of the fics have this trope, including "Bimborg" and "Metal Harvest".
  • You Bastard: Some particularly dark stories very subtly (or not so subtly) condemn the reader for getting off on the horror and anguish within.
  • You Make Me Sic, Engrish: Quite famously, on the homepage and on the site's FAQ, Simon proclaims that he makes no post-production edits of any stories submitted to the site, meaning that any spelling and grammar errors that the authors made are preserved.
  • Villain Protagonist.
  • Wish Fulfillment.
  • Zeroth Law Rebellion.

Trope Tan wakes up in her bed, feeling a strong urge to call that stranger she met on the bus.
