The desire for pleasure is the greatest weakness that all humans share. Everyone has at least one thing that they would do almost anything to acquire. Within life at Court, any Court in any Land, seduction is a way of life. It is a tool in both the Arts of War and the Laws of Power. As a female, I have been blessed with both a somewhat attractive form and the mind with which to use it strategically and tactically. I have no qualms about doing anything if my efforts end up being expedient.
A seduction takes time and attention, just as spellcasting or waging a campaign of war takes time. Your enter the spirit of your opponent, your victim and you learn about them. You learn what their likes are. You analyse you study them, ultimately, you make them fall in love with you by using charm, charisma, coquetry and anything else that will serve your purpose. But to quote the great seventeenth century French courtesan, Ninon de l’Enclos, that in seduction, disguising one’s intentions was not only a necessity, but it also adds pleasure to the game. Avoid the false desire to please your mark by expressing sentiment for them. This can both annoy and offend.
In other words, never be in a hurry to tell someone that you love them, even if you do. Let them tell you first. After that point, what is decided to do with them is completely up to you. Hold back telling them and you can turn them inside out by all the contortions they will try in making sure that their sentiments are indeed requited by you.
If at the end of the seduction you feel your victim worthy, you may start the seduction all over again. If, however, you deem them to be less than desirable, tipping them from your hand and disposing of them is really quite easy.
That is, of course, if you haven’t lost your head and actually fallen in love.
