Untamed Devotion: Endless Beginnings 3, is a two page Oglaf story. There have been no Endless Beginnings 1 or 2 yet.



"It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness." –– Bulwer-Lytton

It was a dark and stormy night. And as happens in melodrama, the girl has gone out into the storm following an argument with the master of metaphor.

He bemoans his loss "I held a rose, but let it fly away", which his manservant notes is a very poor metaphor. The metaphor contest is at dawn, and the master's fortune depends on winning.

The master rides off into the storm and the dark. But he is back on form the next morning with the metaphor "my heart is an empty fortress of ice", a metaphor of such quality it gives the girl a small orgasm, wins the contest and makes the master richer than ever. Whatever doubts the girl had last night seem washed away, and they have sex in a bed covered in roses.

She asks if the hunky manservant can join them to make a threesome. The master's jealousy "burns brighter than magnesium" but he consents, which, as the manservant notes, shows the master is a great guy and all the girl's friends will be jealous.

Alt textEdit

This whole story is a parody of of romantic melodrama, from the "3" of the title to the purple prose. The alt texts continue this idea, with dramatic, but meaningless metaphor, sudden jumps in character, and the reference to an unpublished ebook.
