High Times at the Sixth Annual Succubus Sisters Garage and Bake Sale by Regan Wolfrom

I wonder sometimes if some authors use a specific keyword in their stories in order to draw attention to their stories… No, actually I am very sure of that. The question then becomes if that story actually has something in it that connects to a subject you are interested in or not. Sometimes it’s mostly not.

  • Title: High Times at the Sixth Annual Succubus Sisters Garage and Bake Sale
  • Author: Regan Wolfrom
  • Publishing Date: May 23, 2012
  • Length: 3,000 Words
  • ASIN: B0085ZCTQ0
  • This work at Amazon.com

The story is summarized as:

Pretty but shy twentysomething Heather Smythe meets the love of her life at the McDonald’s drive-thru. This lands her right in the middle of a band of killer succubi with a taste for East Hollywood douches. Will Heather find a way to keep her new girlfriend without losing her soul?

I’ll get the main point of this review out of the way first. If you are looking for Succubi with horns or tails, or Succubi of the myths and legends, you aren’t going to find them in this story.

Succubi are mentioned, that’s very true, but in that the women of this story consider themselves Succubi in what they do. And what they do is go around and kill off, then eat, people they describe as “douches.” Most of those events are skimmed over for the relationships that Heather has with the other women in the group and where things go from there.

There aren’t any sexual moments in the story really, which isn’t a bad thing considering. There is a lot of head games and confrontations in the story which over time force this story towards what is, really, very obvious from the beginning of the story.

The author writes well, they can tell a story and draw you into it, but over time I didn’t care about anyone in the story and by the end, I really didn’t care. The editing was good as well, but editing alone can’t help a story that just has no soul in it. And for me, even if you don’t have a Succubus in the story that I care about, I want to see something in the story that makes it worthwhile to me personally…

I’ll give this work one pitchfork out of five.

Not a story about Succubi, mostly a horror story wrapped in a hot flash sex story, and it really didn’t appeal to me at all…

Yes, Another Morrigan Aensland YouTube

I found another Morrigan Aensland YouTube… One things that bothers me about it is the same thing that bothers me a lot about many other YouTubes of Morrigan… And that is, why so many images of her bum?

I mean, honestly, I would have thought that there were other parts of her that were more attractive?

As always, if you can’t see the video here, just click on this link:

And this is the one image of Morrigan that I thought was the best one that they used in the video:

Morrigan Aensland

There were, honestly, a lot of images of her that I felt really aren’t all that flattering, or for that matter really sexy… Especially the first image. I don’t understand why that would be shown first when there are so many other images of her that are so much better.

I’m also not thrilled by the music… There has to be something classical that would fit Morrigan better I would think…

A Review of Succubi Seduction by Amanda Ramsay

Succubi Seduction by Amanda Ramsay

Succubi Seduction by Amanda Ramsay

It has been a peeve of mine that short stories, and I mean the ones that are short enough that you can blink and miss a lot of the story, bother me.

Now, if that story can hold my attention, that makes it better. If that story has a theme I didn’t expect, that’s better still. What does not, however, is when there is a story begun, the tease takes me and holds me to the story and then… it ends.

That really shatters the faith I have in the work and then my thoughts are… why stop there?

The summary of this story is:

Mary wakes up to the attention of a creature she didn’t know existed. A Succubus. Can she resist?

Mary finds herself at the mercy of a group of invisible Succubi who have their way with her. That in itself is interesting as a story, but here’s the problem with this one. The Succubi in this story, or at least some of them, are male. So as that seems to be the case, wouldn’t they be more correctly Incubi?

It’s not that much of a story killer in itself, but couple that with several word errors in this story such as “meeting a small pert of her need” were bothersome and creeped in much too often for my liking. It’s another example of an author writing and then not having an editor and, again, if someone is selling a book for whatever the amount, you expect some kind of care like editing to happen. Especially in a six page work.

That then brings me back to the length of this work. The six pages come and go, as does Mary, and then… it ends with questions to be answered which aren’t. I do understand that this is another of the hot flashes that seem to be the “vogue” thing at the moment, but honestly there is a story to be told here. The Succubi, again, more accurately Incubi, are mysterious and it would be a path to follow with something to be written about. The end of the work, what Mary finds when all is done… Why was that there? Did it cause what happened? Did Mary bring this upon herself or did someone set her up?

Too many questions left and if the author had at least tried to answer some of them, then this story would have easily been double the length it is.

The physical descriptions of what happens to Mary, what the Succubi do to her are very hot and erotic. Some truly needful moments come in the work, but then, again, the word mistakes pop up in the middle of the heat and things fall apart again.

It is not awful, not at all, but a bit more care, a bit more thought and this would be something very special…

I’ll give this work two and a half pitchforks out of five.

Too short. Far too short. Six pages and then nothing more does not endear a work to me even if the beings within the story do. Nor does not proofreading for errors that should have been not there…

Succubi Image of the Week 294

Succubi do have their darker side sometimes… The creation of art that shows that side, but also retains the sensuality of the Succubi is something special. I found a wonderful example to share this week on the Tale…

Sketchjam002 - Demons by Amymiu

Sketchjam002 – Demons
by Amymiu

This art is titled Sketchjam002 – Demons and is by an artist on DeviantArt named Amymiu. You can find the original page on DeviantArt with this work here and this artist’s page here too…

I really do think her eyes, the glow, are the focus of this art, but what’s more fascinating to me is how there are but two colours here, red and black, and they tell a story in a way, They tells of her power, her existence, her being. But they also give hints and at the same time they hide a lot of her. One of those things being her tail, I can’t see one, but her wings are there and can be seen well.

I wonder if this might be a moment when she has been summoned and is materializing on this plane of existence, her powers stating to become known to the one that did. Her smile as she sees that whomever it is will be her toy, or pet, or thrall moments later…

Another thought for a story, and that’s always a good thing to have…

Please do visit this artist’s page for more wonderful art…

PVC Does Not A Succubi Costume Make

I like shiny Succubi costumes. I freely admit that and, as well, I tend to give a better rating to them. I just think that overall they tend to look better if they are done in the right way… Mostly…

PVC Devil Woman

This is called, simply, the PVC Devil Woman costume and it comes with the PVC costume with an attached tail and the PVC horns and the wristlets.

The stockings and garters do not come with the costume.

It sells for $45 US, but it can be found for less easily enough.

The one thing that really bothers me about this costume is that, on some sites, this is described as being a “cat devil” costume because, and I can see this, the horns are so wide that they can be mistaken for cat’s ears.

I really don’t like this much. There isn’t really a lot of sexy here and seductiveness is even less so.

I also can’t see a way to make this better considering that the entire costume looks… cheap. It’s not sexy in the way I like sexy nor is it honestly well made from what I can see.

I won’t give it a zero, though I have to admit that I was very tempted to do so…

One half pitchfork out of five.

I’m still looking…

Desires 91

What is it that Succubi can offer?

________________

Desires – Beginnings

By BStyles and Tera S

Part Twenty-Seven

 

Her hands made him quiver…

Her tongue made him gasp…

But her lips made him moan out loud…a new experience this, the realm of physical delight. Again his thoughts meandered to ponder the truly wondrous world of mortals, before Tera’s lips consumed his thoughts in pleasure.

Like seemingly all malekind with no idea how to occupy themselves during such an act, Martin found his hands nestling in her hair. A short moment was taken as he enjoyed the luxurious feel of her reddish locks between his fingers, before his hands strayed to brush against her horns. Remembering her earlier reactions, he gave them a few little touches and caresses. His wings twitched as well, quivering with his delight before he brought them around his body once again, their gentle weight falling around to almost envelop Tera entirely, once more spreading pleasant feathery softness over her bare skin.

Angels can have pleasures too…

A Preview of Something to Come

Something of a previewIt’s been a week for me and as such I haven’t really been able to focus on anything creative.

As such I haven’t anything finished to share today on the Tale, but as an aside, I can share this little part of a manip that I am working on…

It’s been a long time since I have done some manipping and perhaps that is a way for my creativity to start to return again…

I know the title of this will be “Something” and I think I have a vague idea of what it might be about as well…

The part of that being about one of the Succubi is a given I think… It’s the rest of the story that needs to be figured out better than it is….

Still, there is a possibility it might become more than something and that has to be… something… I suppose…

We shall see…
