I've read tons of stories here and still am but i seem to have subconsciously avoid and/or ignore any story that has any mind control aspect to it.
ESP is a different topic. I like that, it's an underpowered version of mind control thus it has its challenges.
Anyway, i've been having this thoughts that mind control is a lazy way of writing a story, like a super thick plot armor, or a heaven defying luck that could turn a situation around just because.
For example, idk about you guys, but when i read erotic stories, i find the chase more exciting yet the mind control entirely skips this part.
If there are any conflict, mind control seems to do the job in a jiffy.
I think people should consider adding side effects to curb the OPness of said ability.
