So out of curiosity in light of Raising the Barn, I was brushing up on power and control in abusive relationships, and I came across this interesting diagram:
These are tactics used by abusers to obtain power and control in their relationships. When used together, it creates what’s known as a climate of fear– and, with this, the victim will feel like they don’t have an equal voice in the relationship.
First off, I strongly believe Lapis was holding onto a sense of power over Peridot that she was at least somewhat aware of, leading to Peridot’s hesitation to voice her own wishes. And I’ll like to break down and illustrate the major tactics she used that unambiguously gave her power and control in her and Peridot’s relationship, because apparently there’s still debate on whether or not Lapis is an abusive character.
(mind you, not all tactics have to be used in a relationship, but considering I cover half of them below… I’d say it’s more than enough)
BTS REACTION: coming home after you tease them with nudes
“You’re never going to live this down babygirl”
Get ready because RM would not go easy on you, he asked you to stop 3 times as he was in an important meeting but you didn’t listen, that when he excused himself from the meeting and came home right away.
The second he saw you, laying on the bed in the baby blue lingerie you’d bought earlier, that’s when he snapped, taking off his belt and tying your hands to the headboard with it, that’s when he teased you with his mouth, not letting you orgasm for the rest of the night as a punishment.
Jin would be rushing home a flustered mess. A mix of emotions would swirl through him as he drive his car to your place. He wanted to roughly fuck you into the mattress until you couldn’t walk for a month, but he also wanted to punish you in such a way where you’d never EVER do this again. He smirked as he picked the second option.
When he came home and saw you in the middle of taking another one, that’s when he snatched your phone and threw it across the room.
“I’ll buy you a new one later, but for now, all fours baby”.
*reads and doesn’t reply*
That’s when you knew you were in for it. It wasn’t. Yoongi saw the nudes and dirty texts you were sending him. He did text you a few times.
“Kitten, I’m in a meeting. Stop.”
“Do you want daddy to get angry?”
“You’re in for it when I get home babygirl”
But when he read the message and didn’t reply, that’s when you worried.
He hopped in his car and turned the key, rushing to your place straight away. You already knew what position he’d want you in, ass up face down, and that’s the position he found you.
With his gummy smirk, he praised you as he made his way onto the bed, and you prepared for punishment.
“I’m getting hard, I said stop kitten.”
“If one of the boys sees this, I’ll never live this down.”
He came home straight away. He gave up trying to twist the keys as his hands shakes in anger, and just rang the doorbell multiple times instead. When you answered, completely nude, he snapped. Crashing his lips onto yours and taking you right on the wall, you weren’t able to walk for weeks after wards.
“Is my baby playing with herself whilst I’m gone? You are naughty princess.”
“Just wait until oppa gets home, I’ll make you feel better”
“I bought you those stuffies for a reason, go ride them and show daddy okay?”
Jimin, with a smirk, would happily help you. He lived nothing more than to see you using his toys when he was away. It was if you didn’t show him, that was when you got punishment.
After the meeting, you sent him multiple Videos of you riding the teddy he bought you for your birthday. He smiled as he got in the car, knowing what was in store for him when he got home.
When he opened the door, to see your naked sweaty figure with all his toys laid out, it felt like Christmas to him.
“Now let daddy lead, hmm?” He coo’d.
“You know not to touch yourself when I’m not there or without my permission”
“You little slut, that’s 20 spankings when I get home”
V wouldn’t be happy at all. But what made him Less angry, was knowing how much you were going to whine in pain and pleasure when he spanked you.
You loved your spankings, but not as much as him. When he finally came home, he grabbed you by the collar you always wore for him, and forced you over his lap.
“You get a spank for every nude and message you sent, how many did you send kitten?”
“Then that’s 26 spankings. Count. If you mess up we start over.”
And with that, he started spanking you until you couldn’t even remember your own name, but it came with a lot of after care.
“Go a little faster baby.”
“Cmon, you can add another finger, if my cock fits in you, your fingers will too.”
He’d look down at his phone, push his hair back and lick his lips slightly whilst looking at all the messages you sent him, smirking slightly at the fact you were getting off to the thought of him fucking you, the fact that you were turned on without him physically doing anything. But when he got home, that’s when everything really began.
Stripping himself of his clothes, he grabbed your ass and played with it whilst smirking, teasing you.
“God you look so much better in person.”
And after that, you couldn’t walk for almost a month.
Ah, I’m going to write a story about it. What, the development? No. Me and Mandy, how we met and what she’s taught me. I thought you were gonna write a love story next. Well that’s just the fictional framework.
