It’s a pleasure to meet you, Miss Snow. I’m Lucy Abrams and yes, that is very exciting news.
It’s a good thing that you’re in my class then. Red or purple?
I’d say it’s a little bit of both.
The good thing about being a Switch is the uncertainty that comes with it. The possibilities are endless and that’s rather exciting. I say, explore away.
I do agree with that philosophy. I will have to say that I believe a balanced combination of the two is the most effective. At least in my personal experience. This just makes me sad I’m not taking your class. I feel like the discussions would be epic.
Thank you for the A+, Ma’am. May I ask what it’s for?
Whichever works best for you is definitely the way to go. I take it you have your own Dominant? I have a feeling that this won’t be the last time I’ll be having a discussion with you.
It’s for the annual assessment test. Believe it or not, having a rose doesn’t guarantee you a place in the society.
I would like my answer to be more accurate, how about that? Expect an answer within the next day or so that will hopefully boost that score, Miss. Especially when I know I can do better than what I have.
Looking forward to it. I’m sure your teacher will be able to point you in the right direction.
Yes, Ma’am. The way I see it, punishment is discipline but discipline is not always a punishment. Punishment can be one outcome of discipline if a dominant decides that it is needed as a tool. Discipline is the explanation and communication between both Dominant and submissive of what went wrong and why and how it can be prevented in the future. A punishment by itself is not as effective if not paired with discipline. If a submissive understands what it was that upset a Dominant and what behavior lead to their punishment, it is more likely that a punishment will be more effective. It also isn’t simply up to a Dominant to dole out punishment. A submissive can take an active role to ask for ‘maintenance’ punishments which helps to reiterate their role and put them in a better place to serve. It also lets a Dominant know that the submissive trusts them enough to know when to ask for help instead of leaving their Dominant clueless and thus strengthening the partnership.
Sorry. I rambled. You actually touched on a topic I’m very passionate about.
Punishments are usually physical in nature - whipping, paddling etc. Discipline is most frequently thought of as being non-physical; for example an assignment that teaches and promotes self-control, the loss of certain privileges etc. But they share the same goal. It’s a lesson, a reminder to help and guide Submissives to enhance their submission which in turn pleases the Dominants. However, which is better? Discipline or Punishment? That is always debatable and it’s entirely up to the Dominant to decide what’s best for their Submissives. The intrinsic difference is that punishment is given for something already done, and discipline is used to stop something unpleasant from happening.
You’re clearly very opinionated and I like your approach. Good girl. A+.
Last exam. It was my first one and I was dominating and had no idea what to do.
So what have you done to improve yourself since the last exam?
I understand entirely, Miss. I appreciate the grade that you did give me, despite the fact that my answer was wrong. I will ask my teachers to explain it to me so that I have a better understanding of what being a good submissive is, and report back to you with what I’ve learned. I accept the grade I was given though- you asked me something that I did not know the answer to- but I’d like to show that I do know the answer once I have spoken with my teachers.
There’s no such thing as a wrong answer or opinion. Let’s put it this way. If I were to grade your answer out of a hundred, you would get a score of 30 or lower. You just need to find out what’s missing; the important elements that you need in order to score an 80 and above. Good. I’ll be looking forward to it.
I have a feeling you’re still pretty no matter what mood you are in but the message is received loud and clear, Miss Snow.
I like smart people. You’re quickly becoming my favorite. Keep that up.
Completely depends on the situation and the person.
Is that your true calling in life?
