WHO I AM - THE ARTIST
"Play your hand - freak cards facing up."
My name is Namiin Stone, better known as MoltenGoldArt. I'm an erotic illustrator and author with a singular driving story I want to tell, time and time again: fictional, fantastical, flesh and blood fathers and daughters tangled together to be destined as consensual, consanguineous lovers.
MY LOVE LETTERS (Click me!)
An ancient, unfathomable Incubus with intent set on claiming the heart of the girl that summoned him. The girl that was made from him, the lover that was made for him and him alone. Ila, who thought she'd been abandoned since childhood, unwanted and untouchable - only to discover through the loss of her last living relative, an outpouring of over twenty years of grief, and surreal nightmares that bleed into reality that she had not been abandoned at all. She had been stolen. Far from untouchable - she was only meant to be touched by one alone; a powerful Incubus called Idris.
He needs her as much as she needs him; an Incubus needs his Cambion daughter to become his mate for both of them to be completely whole.
BLACK STAG - WHITE DOE
An Arabic, symphonic metal band called Elk Garden vanished without a trace over twenty years ago.
Ila comes back home from her third year in an out-of-state college after getting into a car accident that nearly ended her life. Idris, ever her doting dad, welcomes her home and encourages her to enroll in a local college to continue her studies, so he can keep a watchful eye on her. Her coming home coincides with Idris getting peculiar phone calls that have him working long evening hours at his accounting firm, despite being only weeks away from a late retirement.
At the same time, the band Elk Garden makes a sudden, explosive comeback with its larger than life, seven-foot-five, elk skull masked and anonymous front man, The Black Stag. As Ila bonds over the band's music with a bad boy named Ahmed she liked but never had the courage to approach before she went out of state, tensions with her protective father rise at home over Ahmed, and what, exactly, his true intentions are with her.
At their apex, an odd turn of events leads her to the backstage of an Elk Garden show, and right into the arms and heart of the mysterious, mythical, eerily familiar Black Stag...
THE MEANING OF GARDENIAS AND GLADIOLI
An Arab merchant and his albino daughter live in relative comfort and solitude in the French countryside, 1873. The old merchant is approached by a noble who wishes to ask on behalf of his son for the daughter's hand in marriage. The merchant, Idris, emphatically refuses - his daughter will marry no one, and he would be remiss to marry her off against her wishes. The noble asks again several weeks later, and again is refused, harsher this time - until he insinuates something about Idris's past "dealings".
Idris's blood-soaked past has come to collect its due. He must marry Ila off to the son of the Vicomte to save them both from a grisly demise, despite her pleading, despite her protests that rip his heart in two. The circumstances become deadly - dire - when Ila awakens her assassin father's long-buried hunger for her by kissing him with so much passion during a heated argument about her unwanted betrothal. For her, to keep her, he will spill the blood of kings again.
The two of them stall for time to plan an escape from France as their tremulous, tender romance blossoms right beneath the Vicomte and his son's noses, and Idris's decades of experience as a honed, lethal weapon will mean the difference between life and death.
The incestuous desire portrayed is not the protagonists' problem, though it is titillatingly taboo.
My stories and my heart are not for everyone - and that’s okay; they aren't meant for everyone. They are for me and mine, first and foremost. But, if you've found me here, and you like what you've found, I implore you to sit by the fire with me and listen for a while.
I hope, if nothing else, that I am an entertaining storyteller. ♥
WHAT YOU'LL FIND - THE THEME
Playing with the concepts of age, lived experience, inherent authority, and maturity between an older man and his much younger daughter is thrilling and titilating to me. There's something about the contrast of gnarled, aged hands skimming over the surface of an unblemished young woman's throat that's just so...
To that end, I find concepts related to ageplay in fiction - women play acting as little girls, vast age gaps between adults, naive girls being taught and guided by their much older (usually elderly) fathers - to be intensely erotic.
WHAT I DO - THE CONTENT
I play a long game, as a content creator.
My current novel and illustration project is called The Summoning, which takes my husband and I's characters - Idris and Ila - and throws them into a modern, human, supernatural alternate universe.
Divided by space and time, only to come together again after so long that Ila never understood herself; was never given the opportunity to understand. So long that she doesn't know why she's so drawn to the old man who calls himself Idris, nor why his intent is set so fiercely on seducing her and claiming her heart for his own. He isn't real, after all, he can't be - he is only an illusion, a figment, a product of a grieving mind, surely?
Ila, a girl who thought she was abandoned and unwanted, untouchable and strange - only to discover through loss, grief, and an inexplicable haunting that she had not been abandoned at all. She had been stolen. She wasn't untouchable; she was only ever meant to be touched by one and one alone.
Idris gives her a choice, time and again. It does nothing to stop her from finding solace in him, because she chose the second she touched the book. She chose the second she kissed him for the first time, tasting petrichor and autumn, smoke and ash.
EXCERPT FROM THE SUMMONING (Click me!)
"What do I call you?"
Her voice was soft, her brow knit in confusion. Two more tears fell down the planes of his gaunt face, and then he smiled.
There was an emptiness, a hollowness when he finally whispered, "Idris."
"Idris." Ila tested the name on her tongue as soon as he'd said it. The tall, lean figure kneeling before her looked like he was about ready to collapse, and the light shifted enough to obscure his face again, plunging them both in darkness.
"How far did you go?"
Ila blinked. "Where?"
"The book, the book," both of his hands - hands that could swallow the whole of her head - tenderly cradled her jaw, fingers lacing in her stark white hair, "how far into the book?"
"I..." she swallowed, lips parting, shaking hands reaching up to hold his knobby wrists, "I don't know. It told me how to... It told me what to do. I can't read any more of it. I don't understand it."
Her fingers brushed lighter linen and heavy cotton cloth, tickled by hair that stood on end, gooseflesh rising over his dark skin. They stayed that way, her head in his palms, his wrists in her hands, for what felt like an eternity. Still - Ila wasn't frightened, though somewhere she felt she should be. No one - no man - had ever been in her presence for such a sustained amount of time.
"Look again when you can," he breathed a shuddery sigh, "it won't tell you everything. Maybe not much at all."
He smoothed her hair back and wiped at her eyes with his thumbs again, "It won't tell you why it was in the attic. It won't tell you who I am."
Ila's gaze came into sharp focus. Her hair stood on end, she felt heat blossom in her face, felt her pulse quicken under his fingers. "How do you -"
"Mysteries that will be revealed in due time," he murmured.
"What does that mean?" She asked, a sob threatening in her throat.
"I wish I could tell you. I wish I could tell you." His grip became firmer, and the light shifted again, casting the old mans face in gradients of diffuse gray. It revealed the darkness of his eyes, the shape of his mouth, the set of his teeth. "I can't."
"Why?!" It was the closest she'd been to shouting in months. Ila finally found her fear and shoved Idris's hands away, scooting back and staring at him, wild-eyed.
His hands hung in the air where he'd just been touching her, fingers flicking. His jaw set, and she watched the motion of him swallow. The light shifted twice more, before his arms dropped, held loosely at his sides, just barely enough of a bend in one to hold his cane. They stared at each other for several heartbeats that felt like several lifetimes, breath caught beneath Ila's fluttering heart, breath slowly exhaled from Idris's flaring nostrils. Black staring into lilac.
"You're beautiful. More than I could have ever imagined."
There was an ache, set somewhere between the low growling cadence in his throat and the accent catching his tongue. Ila was too stunned to respond, but she felt it too - in the way that her heart squeezed, wrapped in the vines of a growing recognition. Before she could voice it, Idris got up from the dusty hardwood in one fluid motion, cane held sturdy in one hand to support his weight. Though, judging from the way he stood so squarely, she wasn't entirely sure he needed the cane.
"Will I see you again?" It came out in a rush, before she could think to not say it at all.
Idris looked down his hooked, crooked nose at her, stilling. His gaze shifted from hers, to the book next to her hand, and he croaked, "That's your choice to make, darling."
The light shifted again, and when Ila blinked, he was gone.
