Fandoms: A Woman's Face (1941), Original Work
20 Dec 2013
As I walked out of the church, the wind swept through the birches and it was as if the Devil himself had been sitting outside all this time, but waiting to whisper in my ear through the rustle of the leaves:
"But you are better than the others, Laura Erika, so much better than this wretched flock of sheep; a woman who deserves a penthouse in a metropolis, not a drafty attic that looks upon dull fields of grass. You don't deserve a girl's flowery dress: you deserve furs, pierced ears from which hang chandeliers of diamonds; you deserve adoring men at your feet."
Thus, the Devil spoke upon the warm summer wind and rapt, I listened, breathed him in.
Laura Erika knows she is different, knows she is not an ordinary girl, knows she is destined for greatness. The only one who has ever truly understood her desires and ambitions has been her favourite uncle, Torsten, the black sheep of the family. He has the means to give her the decadent life she yearns for; she has the wealth and the innocence he craves to sink his claws into.
- Part 1 of Devilry
Which one of us was more insane, he or I? Because I loved this, loved being violated over and over, giving myself to my beloved uncle, my beloved father over and over. I could have left him long ago, could have rejected his desires, but why should I have if those desires matched mine exactly? I laughed inside at the idea of what would have happened had Fate never brought us together. Would he have become a real molester, preying on true innocents instead of the child who was born a whore? Would I have burned myself to exhaustion seducing older men, none of whom would have dared give me this, the father-lover I had always sought?
Laura and Torsten leave war-torn Europe for America, taking on new lovers and indulging in new debaucheries. As they descend into the clandestine world of New York's elite sex clubs, they soon discover the patrons gamble with more than just their reputations. After falling afoul of a sinister English nobleman, they realise their very lives may be at stake.

Once Torsten and Laura know their song is coming to an end, their lust and their rage are unstoppable. Together, they set out to avenge themselves against a society that had sought to suffocate their desires--and to enjoy each last one of the world's pleasures to the fullest.
Torsten was the Devil's gift to me, the greatest blessing I had ever known. He was the older, male half of my own self, the most perfect father, brother, friend and lover I could ever have hoped for. It was true that he had brought me up in his own image, but as it was an image that was identical to what had already lain dormant in me, he had been serving but Nature itself, serving my best interests, and I couldn't have been more grateful.
In his sickness, he had been the healthiest alternative for me; in his perversion, he had protected my inborn deviant nature; in his insanity, he had been the only thing that had kept me sane.
He noticed I was shivering and laid a hand on my shoulder. "Laura."
I clutched at my father's pale hand, the hand of beauty, the hand of power, the only hand that could set me free. "Bind me."
