A Continued Rant on the Reaper Succubus…

Now that I can at least sit up in bed long enough to type, I’m going to continue my rant over that poor excuse for a Succubi in the Reaper TV Series…

One thing that really bugs me is how Sock (still think that name is dumb) describes being kissed by the Succubus as, and I quote… “Like being on smack.” Endquote.

Connected with that is the effect that the kiss has on him for a period of time… It sort of turns him into Superman for lack of a better description… He carries around huge beams of wood and carries a man on his back for 5 miles or has this stupid need to do push-ups…

Since when has any of that been part of the Succubus mythos?

In short her so-called effects on him are nothing at all like what a Succubus does…

Now.

As for her in particular…

First issue to comment on is her so-called red skin. Ummm… It looks like someone tried to use watercolours on her skin and very poorly at that… If you look at where her skin meets her clothing, when she moves in certain directions you can see a sharp paint line where the paint ends.

Garbage job really….

Then let’s look at her horns… You know what they reminded me of?

Lil Hershey Kisses.

Seriously.

All they were was two little tiny Hershey kisses glued to her forehead pointing forward…

I will give them one point however. When her horns were stroked a little bit she did shiver and moan a bit which IS Succubus like…

There is more of course that bugs me about her… Some of that was mentioned last week in the Tale…

But one final point to make…

Like so many other stories about the Succubi, in this case, her revelation that she liked Sock was casually brushed away in a scene that reminded me of a bad 80s comedy movie…

So if anyone from the Reaper series ever sees any of this…

Try to make her more than you have created so far?

Because honestly…

It’s disappointing…

    Wow. Now I’m really glad I missed it. At least they gave her horns and made them erogenous zones. But it sounds like that’s all they got right.

    And, I’m glad you’re feeling at least a little better, Mistress. Keep taking it easy.

    I’m glad your back up to ranting, Majesty. As for the substance of your rant . . . really, when anybody uses the CW network as their source for information about anything–especially Succubi folklore–they are probably too stupid to read your blog.

    On the other hand, if it inspired you back to semi-consciousness, it can’t be ALL bad.

    More huggles, more chocolate, more Diet Coke . . . and stuff for your Beloved, too. :kiss:
