Claiming the King's Bed

In the writer's own words:

"Scene: A new queen waits nervously outside her husband’s chambers. It is late and the castle is quiet as the residents sleep. They have been married a short time but the marriage is not as she wants. It is not unusual given their arranged marriage, but she is determined to make things work. The Queen wishes to secure her place in the King’s heart, and his bed...."

I love historical fiction and romance, and this gorgeous script by /u/DPP_NewFrost captured a lot of what people love about the medieval period.

    What a cunning protagonist. She knows the danger of a king displeased in a new wife, let alone one widely known for amorous behavior with other women. She learns about the king without asking him directly, working as if in secret. She has the "gossipers" dismissed from his service--exercising authority without his oversight--and says it's for his sake. She allures the king at night with gentle submission and nakedness of body and heart. She speaks sweetly things, stroking his ego (and otherwise), while thanking him for his fidelity to her by removing his previous women--apparently even the pregnant ones, which she uses to speak on how she alone can provide a true heir. She references their religion twice over (thus subtly emphasizing the religious (though not cultural) imperative to monogamy).

    Everything she does is precisely considered yet wholly intimate (emotionally at that). She's not wicked in any of this, either! She's smart! It's a wonderful example of a clever, earnest woman.

      tl;dr Maybe I'm off my head looking too deep into it, but I don't think so. It's fun either way but your writing here, Eve, was great. It's the most exciting thing about these little audio stories you produce and this one in particular. No wonder you went into being a novelist.

      It's women like this in real history who shaped the course of nations, not by trying to rip away the scepter from their king but by being sincere and clever. It's a protagonist that really proves she's worthy of the crown on her head. What a fun character.

        Thank you so much, what a wonderful comment!

          It is very sweet, and my headcanon is that God will reward her clever efforts handsomely: The Queen will indeed conceive that night, and nine months later the couple will welcome their firstborn, a son, followed mere minutes later by the little crown prince's baby sister. And the King and Queen will be so in love they'll continue to make love and create more offspring. xD

            Twins! Ack!

            I like the second part though :P

  • MadWithLust on 2019-04-01 10:59:44 (UTC)

    Oh my queen! What a delicious seduction! It was so effortless to be enchanted by that soft, shy whisper..."why, yes, please come in"..."but you look so lovely in that slip fit for a lovely queen" (silky slip <3 <3 <3!!!) ..."yes, it is so warm in this bed, like the warm glow of the fire dancing all over that gorgeous body of yours"...."comfort for my needs...OMG YES!"

    For a king wiho's knocking up the village...I sure felt like a teenager again with the new queen! Bless those magic words! It's good to be king!

    BTW, the queen has permission to enter my chamber any time! With consent of fornication! ;P

    • A Eve on 2019-04-03 21:16:07 (UTC)

      haha it's good to be kind indeed!

  • Aadam on 2019-03-25 04:56:45 (UTC)

    That title is misleading. The Queen claimed more than the King's bed 😂. Jokes aside, this is fantastic. I don't know how you pull this off but keep up the good work.

    BTW, rumor has it that the Queen has fantasized about his King entering her chamber to claim her. I think it would be in His Magesty's best interest to fulfill that fantasy :P

    • A Eve on 2019-03-26 13:23:28 (UTC)

      haha absolutely! Thank you so much! I plan to do more historical themed audios in the near future!

  • Vermouth1991 on 2019-03-20 18:28:53 (UTC) (edited)

    "IMPREG". Oh Eve! That category. O_o

    My girlfriend and I would have LDR phone sex with either voice message exchanges or audio calls on skype, and she's since accepted my love for Impreg as part of the "words to make hair stand on end" category, she gets turned on when I tell her I want to knock her up and keep taking her while her belly's growing, and I absolutely lose it every time she gets into the mood to moan that she wants me to fill her up and that she wants my babies. 😭

    And there are few things hotter than the woman knowing the guy to be a sex machine with evidence all over, but still claiming him so they could make babies of their own.

    • A Eve on 2019-03-23 15:54:55 (UTC)

      I know it's a pretty popular genre for a lot of people - there is something very primal about a man giving a woman a baby.

      • Vermouth1991 on 2019-03-27 19:07:11 (UTC)

        It's definitely primal for me. Humans evolved to have more complex feelings, but there would always be a primal breeding aspect to sex. Non-stop marathon fucking sessions. Cumming over and over again into her fertile belly. Drowning the woman's eggs with the man's sperm until finally he knocks her up. The baby (or babies) would be a solid reminder of lust and sex, and the woman carries it to birth, seemingly starting from nothing; no wonder there were so many cultures that worshipped the fertility goddess. And so many men in real life would continue to worship their women when they're pregnant from them, and the women love being worshipped in return.

    Easily one of your best ones yet, it is sooo intense! I didn't even know I would like such a setting.

    • A Eve on 2019-03-14 21:46:41 (UTC)

      That's so great to hear, I love introducing listeners to new themes they might not have tried before. I love history, and I love really delving into unique themes like this.

  • Darx on 2019-03-12 10:09:31 (UTC)

    I've never been big on role play/period piece audios, but you make a strong argument, Eve. I swear I could feel the cold stone walls of the room, smell the fire, and even the little pricks of the quills in the down pillows. You always go the extra mile with the little details like the fire crackle, it makes it so easy to get lost in the world you weave.

    I'm sure I'm not the first to ever mention this, but I'm now craving some more Eve Accents. I'm somewhat partial to the Irish that comes out occasionally in some of the small videos you post in Twitter, but your British is also wonderful.

    • A Eve on 2019-03-14 21:47:25 (UTC)

      Thank you so much Darx! I recently finished another historical one where I play a female viking, so I tried a slight Scandanavian accent. I hope you like it!

  • CharlieRomeoLima on 2019-03-11 04:12:09 (UTC)

    It was an enchanting experience to listen to a fairy tale, Eve's Garden-style, on a chilly evening. The sound quality was top-notch as always and the foley of heavy oaken doors and the subtle crackle of a bedchamber fireplace keeping the drafts at bay made for a most immersive audio escape. The growing passion between these royal lovers brought together by station and circumstance was palpable, and the kissy denouement was the perfect epilogue to this accounting of what happens following "Happily ever after."

    😆 those back scratches! Are we quite sure Her Majesty is a demure FSUB? Perhaps one day her inner wildcat will lead to a Royal Romp in the castle dungeon 😋

    • A Eve on 2019-03-14 21:48:03 (UTC)

      haha I don't think Her Majesty is as mild and demure as she would have her King believe...I think he's in for some royal shenanigans :P

  • SamuelXD on 2019-03-11 03:57:25 (UTC)

    "Now madam, I will part your legs like the Red Sea and proceed to mount. As I claim you as my queen, we will continue to thrust until we both scream in victory"

    Sorry, I couldn't resist XD

    • A Eve on 2019-03-14 21:48:14 (UTC)

      haha I love it!

  • cubastank on 2019-03-10 23:28:20 (UTC)

    Another award-winning performance, even if no actual awards are involved! Aw, what the heck. Here you go! 🏆😄

    • A Eve on 2019-03-14 21:48:44 (UTC)

      Yay! Thank you so much! The first time someone has given me a trophy! 😘

      • cubastank on 2019-03-14 23:39:45 (UTC)

        You deserve it! 😁

        • A Eve on 2019-03-15 20:31:14 (UTC)
