Please keep writing this story, it was actually the one that brought me to being a supporter
Thanks for the feedback! I don’t really enjoy writing direct sequels, so I don’t think there will be another Mothership novel. But you never know.
I’ve Always wondered, why does Mary’s milk make the women calm (plus Jacob) but makes the men hypothesised and simple -headed?
Probably a estrogen and dopamine inducing enzyme or hormone that women process to calm and speadup pair-bonding with Jacob and suppress non augmented males testosterone and aggressive response like a depressant making them more susceptible to suggestion and being dominated .
Not one to really critique an artist (personal belief of not judging someone doing shiz-nit your own ass can’t do), but the final chapter to me seemed off pace and rushed. Almost as if it were a TV series that expected to get extended another few seasons but got canceled so they had to wrap up all loose ends in the final few episodes. Love the story, don’t get me wrong, any story that elicits that type of response should be commended. Keep it up Rawls! ps. Damn you for having to eventually end your stories, I think most folks would agree that a story purposefully written in perpetuity wouldn’t be scoffed at. lol
Thanks for your feedback.
I usually don’t like sci-fi. This is the exception! I love this story for some reason, maybe all the mom/son, or breeding. I don’t know it’s just hot all around. Thanks!
One of my favourite, mind blowing. Just sad for the Mormon sisters, wonder how it will turn out for them.
Yes, there could probably be a whole novel on what happened to the Mormon sisters. I see a new religion spreading …
Well done story. Not my personal favorite, I couldn’t keep track of the different women, and the messiah thing was getting creepy, but I enjoyed the science fiction aspects of the story, and the scenes were of course hot, they always are.
Thanks for the feedback! The messiah stuff was meant to be creepy 😉 The Winthrops certainly weren’t the good guys in this story.
Hi there, I’ve just tried to register to this site but I seem to have run into some problems. It said when I tried to enter my details that there was something wrong with WordPress. Now my profile is there but I can’t view any content. Please could I have some help
Please email me with a screenshot of the error you’re getting and we’ll get it figured out: email@example.com
Nevermind, I sorted it out.
The link isn’t working
Sorry about that. It’s fixed now.
Maybe turn the pastor’s wife and daughter (assuming the messiah’s harem thaw her out of cryo sleep too) into constantly horny and pregnant housewives for the messiah?
If Jacob breeds all the women, then everyone in the colony henceforth would be committing incest/inbreeding no matter what. Brilliant and dubious. I like the long game, Rawls.
Latest update seems to be corrupted? getting error while opening.
The white version was corrupted. I fixed it a few minutes ago. It should be working now. Try refreshing and downloading again.
Big fan of your writing. I came across your material over a variety of websites and didn’t realize at first that a lot of my favorite stories were coming from the same place.
All that said, I do have a suggestion to improve the tension of your stories. It seems like you often pull back from the interactions of most of the female family members of your stories with each other. I’d say that mother/daughter and aunt/niece sex is just as exciting and taboo. It might be interesting to spend more time on having these characters cross lines with each other to describe how they feel about it. Right now, the default often seems to be a bunch of women sitting around (often in the same room) a room waiting for sex with one man. I’m hoping for a little more variety in how these scenes play out to keep things interesting.
Thanks for the feedback. I would disagree with your analysis of my stories 🙂 With mothership, there is a lot of women waiting on one man, but that’s the point of the plot. With other stories, like Enki or Palmer Mansion, the women have relationships with each other. It just depends on the story. I am going to zero in on stories with more limited scope in the future. After TWT, I feel my strength lies in fewer characters with more depth.
Do you have any plans to have an artist illustrate this series? IMO based on your descriptions, this series would make for some wicked cool artwork or even as far as a graphic novel! ?
I would like to, but nothing imminent. Looking for the right artist for this novel.
Good conflict, good resolution, good fucking. All around good read
This story seems like a continuation of “Don’t Drink the Water.” Albeit, in an extremely distant future. The Easter Eggs calling back to other Dark Stone stories by Donna was pretty nifty authorship in a Steven King sort of way. Good writing on both story lines!
Gorgeous cover! Can’t wait for the rest of the series.
Did JD make you a new cover for Mothership?
I wanted to get a sexier cover for Mothership, with a more pulp sci-fi feel. JD has been really busy lately, so TenderMindd made the new cover. I’ll make an announcement about it.
Sorry to be a bother. I just put some information in wrong, but now I’ve corrected it.
Okay, glad it’s sorted out. Feel free to email anytime if you any trouble with the site in the future.
