When most of us enter into a power exchange structure, we generally have specific ideas of what it is that we want and need, what protocols we want established and what direction the relationship is to take. But no matter how much we may outline and whatever contingency plans we may prepare to effect, there are always invariables.
Things change. People become older and may not be able to do the things they once did as Masters or as slaves. Illness or disability can set in which can change the ability of a Master or slave to do what they once did within the relationship. The household structure can change. There could be new additions. Someone may leave the household or be dismissed. There could be a change in the biological family with the addition of children, through birth, or the acquisition of a household member with familial obligations or through the illness of a family member.
With this in mind, how to we accommodate change? How do we deal with the addition of new members of the household? How do we handle it when someone leaves the household? Is it different if they leave on their own than when they are dismissed? What is done by and for the remaining household members? How does the Master handle it when their slave is no longer in the household? What do we do when someone can no longer handle responsibilities to the degree they once did? How do we deal with the addition of vanilla family members or their issues? How do we handle the aging of a Master or of a slave? How do we go about accommodating change in such a way to maintain the stability and viability of the hierarchical relationship(s)?
