A wonderful Succubus Art WIP YouTube

A YouTube this time of an artist creating a Succubus work based on the Fire Succubus in the Summoner’s War game. I’ve noticed there are quite a lot of Succubi in that game, of many types, but I think I do like this version much more than those seen in the game…

If you can’t see the video here on the Tale, please try this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2fHdwFUfPE

The artist also posted their finished work on DeviantArt and you can find that art here. As well, here is a smaller version in the event that YouTube makes the video vanish into thin air…

The detail in this art, and you really should go and have a look, is just amazing. I love her look, the textures on her stockings and wings are wonderful. Her expression I think tells a lot about her character as does her pose. Her hair, in how there is so much shade, colour and texture, is some of the best that I have seen.

Just amazing and in that comes out a wonderful expression of a Succubus character that just cannot in the game itself…

A Review of How to Summon an Incubus Boyfriend by Brigid Hart

How to Summon an Incubus Boyfriend by Brigid Hart

How to Summon an Incubus Boyfriend by Brigid Hart

I adore cute love stories, especially ones in which the characters develop, they become more than they were but most of all, there’s real love within them which the story brings to the fore. When you love the characters, when the story is so captivating, the erotica doesn’t have to be perfect. All that it needs to do is show the love that exists.

Desiring something is important. To do so creates connections, needs and desires. It attracts souls to one another, giving them more than just what they need. Being open enough with oneself to accept one’s soulmate and lover can be something beyond anything you could imagine.

The work tells the story of:

Erick has been studying incubi for years, with two major obstacles in his path: there is hardly enough information out there about them, and no one seems to take him seriously! A ritual on a night just before the full moon bolsters his resolve to attempt a real summoning later, but the sudden appearance of a beautiful, mysterious stranger could prove that Erick needn’t have doubted his abilities in the first place.

Erick desires to summon an incubus and has for so many years. Taking a chance to try, one more time, he finds that a stranger arrives in his world and when Val turns out to be an incubus, there’s only one thing to do. Love the incubus he’s with.

This is, more than anything else a love story which tells that story in a way that leaves me aching for Erick in his desires at the beginning, smiling at his awkwardness when he encounters Val. While some of the erotica is a little odd in the telling, it doesn’t take away from how the characters are connected and what each of them desires. The story is rich with character, telling of Erick’s love of incubi, his expectations of them and how dearly he craves to be able to touch them.

Val is delightful and not at all stereotypical. He has an amazing personality, the story that revolves around him is fun and captivating. While there are hints of a slightly mischievous nature, he doesn’t act, or appear, to be evil or nasty. He’s very much a lover and a lover that Erick has been needing for so dearly long.

That then is the charm of this work. How the two characters encounter each other, the things they have in common, the needs they each have. There really didn’t need to be a lot of erotica because the story itself was erotic at times without having to put both Erick and Val in bed together. The heat between them is told wonderfully from the first moment and joyfully so.

The erotica itself has some odd moments, mostly reusing some words and actions several times over which seemed a little bit strange. That said, the heat is true to the characters, nothing over the top or strange happens and there’s even a little bit of tail involved which made me smile.

The work is short however, ending at a loving moment for the characters, but not telling of what happened after their first encounter. I’d love to know it Val moves in with Erick, how their relationship grows and what happens along the way. But in spit of the shortcomings, I adored the story and both Val and Erick dearly.

Four out of five pitchforks.

A delightfully cute story within which the main characters have delicious chemistry together. The erotica is a little bit odd in how things are described, but otherwise it is just a lovely passionate story about finding the way to one’s dreams.

After all, isn’t that part of what Incubi are?

A Review of Demonic Temptation: Futanari Obsession by Tabetha Kate

Demonic Temptation: Futanari Obsession by Tabetha Kate

Demonic Temptation: Futanari Obsession by Tabetha Kate

A review of the second work in the Demonic Temptation series, the first was reviewed earlier this week on the Tale. One of the things that felt wasn’t really explored was the succubus of this series, Azazel. There’s a good deal of mystery around her and telling more of her story would have been very good I thought. Still, something was offered, a hint of who she is.

Dreams can become reality, if one isn’t very careful. Sometimes in doing so, reality takes care of itself, and the dreamer. But in doing so, what does the dreamer know, or not?

The work tells of:

In his dreams, she visits him. Every night, this mysterious, frightening, beautiful woman forces Ross to submit to her will. He doesn’t know her name, but he knows her body, her curves, her touch, her scent. He also knows what makes her different from most women. She insists on using it on him every night until they are both satisfied. But Ross has learned what she is: a demon that preys on hapless, sleeping men, and he intends to stop her.

But can he?

Ross dreams of a succubus who takes him every night in every way imaginable. The lust is everywhere and when he finds out exactly what she is, and what she wants, he strikes a gamble. But the thing about gambling with a succubus is that the house always wins.

The work mainly focuses upon the erotica, which leaves a lot of story behind that isn’t really delved into deeply. There are little snapshots of Ross’ life, a bit of story about him, but nothing that really works to make a connection with him. The same can be said of Azazel in that much of the story focuses upon her using Ross for her pleasure and not very much it told about her otherwise.

While it is clear, as in the first work, that Azazel is a futa succubus, that alone really doesn’t tell much about her. The little hints of her attitude, how she refers to Ross as “morsel” and so on, tells of a succubus with a particular attitude, need, and desire. But that isn’t explored too deeply. How Azazel plays with Ross, tempting him, using him and so on is, but otherwise there’s nothing told of what she’s thinking or what her history is.

The story is told from Ross’ perspective, so that isn’t surprising really. Still, Azazel is very central to the story and exploring her character, telling of her past, would I think have made for that connection that this work so dearly needs.

Erotica alone doesn’t give much in the way of a story. While there is some well written futa erotica and a fair amount of BDSM as well, it is there for the sake of the erotica and not so much for the sake of telling the story. The heart of the story, what makes this more than just a stroke story, overall, is where the issue is for me.

The characters need to be developed more, there needs to be at least one more editing pass as there are a smattering of spelling and word mistakes to be found. The erotica is a little over the top, the story needs to be fleshed out more. Overall that is what’s missing here. More story, more character development. Given that, I think this work would be so much better than it is.

Two and a half out of five pitchforks.

There’s too much focus on the erotica over story again in this work like the first in the series. The story of Azazel I would really like to know more about. Just being a futa succubus isn’t enough of an explanation, there needs to be more about her than just bending others to her will. Perhaps, in time, the author will explore that part of the story as well.

Succubi Image of the Week 462

I love cute Succubi who are, for me, really some of the most wonderful art that I have found. While sexy has its place, there’s something about a Succubus who is cute and seductive at the same time. Sometimes a smile makes all the difference…

Cute Devil Leia by かすか

I found this art on Pixiv and you can find the original page with this art here on that site.

She’s just adorable as a Succubus and it’s so nice to see a lovely smile, a little bit of cuteness and some whimsey in her as well. She has the most amazing smile, a cute hairstyle, her pose is lovely. I think her outfit works really well and her tail and horns fit her perfectly.

While she is described as a devil, I do think she makes a wonderfully cute Succubi and that is how I will be always thinking of her as…

Perhaps a Masquerade Mask might be something to consider…

Masquerade Horn MaskNot a costume today, rather an accessory that might be something to consider at one of those parties where one cannot “be” as Succubi as one would like to be. It does happen on occasion, though it is rare of course. So what does one do when you cannot actually wear horns or a tail, and need to be slightly reserved… and still be the Succubi you are?

That leaves a mask of course…

This lovely piece of mask art is about $10 US, I found this on two sites, one of which has vanished recently, sadly.

I think the overall look is interesting, it seems to be a little understated and yet I do like this.

Framing a pair of green eyes and the mask has swirls in it already? I think this has possibilities with the right sort of black dress and heels…

Four out of five pitchforks…

We’ll see if I still have the same opinion when it appears…

A Review of The Half-Succubus Gal Julie Direct 2: Demon Games by Heidi Fisk

The Half-Succubus Gal Julie Direct 2: Demon Games by Heidi Fisk

The Half-Succubus Gal Julie Direct 2: Demon Games by Heidi Fisk

A short time ago I reviewed the first work in the series called Julie Direct and you can find that review here on the Tale. At the time of that review, I noted that there seemed to be quite a number of issues with the story, and my hopes that the author might take it upon themselves to write something better than they had in the first work of the series.

Some of the issues were that more editing was needed, more time in telling a story would be nice as well. But really the main issue was how odd the writing was which took away a lot from the story itself. This, the second work, sadly doesn’t really improve much, if at all.

Comprehension matters in story telling and having something happen without really there being a point leaves a lot to be desired.

The work tells the story of:

Julie is back, and this time she has decided to play a little game. After David’s girlfriend insults her she decides that it is only natural to get back at her the only way she can. That is if the new Lilim she has summoned doesn’t keep her from her plans.

Julie’s plans of revenge, lust and sex continue onwards, gathering more victims into her clutches. But what is a succubus to do when she’s given a Lilim to play with and that Lilim is just as twisted as she is?

Like the first work, this is a very difficult read. Editing mistakes, wooden dialogue and disjointed sentence structure do not help in comprehending the story. Further, the lack of direction from Julie, or the other characters in telling a story, moving it forwards, leaves something to be desired.

There’s no expansion of Julie as a character, of her past either. Again, the focus is on Julie having sex, casting some spells and getting involved with the Lilim that comes into her possession. The theme and tone again makes this read like Hentai, there are a lot of tentacles after all. Little or no character development happens, the erotica has almost no heat to it as well.

The small bits of development that happened in the prior work aren’t really touched on, save once, and then are forgotten in the wake of Julie’s sexual needs taking over the story completely once more. Like the first work, the erotica reads as Hentai porn, there’s no real point. There’s no direction or plot, and as the conclusion comes the question remains as to just what, exactly, is going on.

The work has little, if any, editing, the dialogue reads oddly, the narrative is mostly non-existent. There isn’t so much a story as a series of short porn scenes where Julie gets to come… over and over again… and then it rushes off in another direction altogether.

The plot, the narrative is missing and it would be good for the author to re-edit things to make it read better than it does. Again, there’s a story here, but the flaws get in the way, leaving it hidden and lost. One more editing pass to make the dialogue better, to make the characters more than cardboard would be nice. It also would help to say something more about Julie than she loves sex and toying with those around her.

One pitchfork out of five.

Not much more interesting than the first work and that’s a shame. The author seems to suggest there will be another work in the series and if there is I hope that allows for Julie as a character to be more than she is now. Being manipulative is a character trait, it shouldn’t be all that Julie is by far.

A Review of Demonic Temptation: Futanari & Gender Swap Erotica by Tabetha Kate

Demonic Temptation: Futanari & Gender Swap Erotica by Tabetha Kate

Demonic Temptation: Futanari & Gender Swap Erotica by Tabetha Kate

A review of the first work in the Demonic Temptation series, and I will be reviewing the second work in the series on Friday. The thing about writing a series is that there needs to be a strong central character to gather stories about. If that character has enough power alone to support that series, then things can be very interesting. But just having them present, and not really telling their story, can be a bit of a problem.

Wants and needs are kinds of desire. They can push a soul into making a deal they do not understand. It isn’t always about the deal, but the dealer after all.

The work tells of:

Sick of being ignored and passed up again and again at his job, Nick decided the only answer lies in a very literal Deal with The Devil. When the demon he summons turns out to be a sensual creature named Azazel, though, he realizes he might be in for more than he bargained for… especially when he sees the thick, long, hard piece of Hell she intends to use on him! Will the money and success be worth it? And what will Nick do when he learns that demons have a taste for women… and the ability to change their pets’ gender?

But can he?

Nick wants power, to be successful. Seeing that the quickest path is making a deal with a devil, he summons one to make that come true. But when one summons a succubus, the one that comes isn’t always the one you expect.

There is some interesting plot to tie the erotica together in this work, but overall there’s a singular focus on the erotica over the story and I wish that wasn’t so. The beginning of the work seemed to offer a lot of story to develop, to explore, but as things unfold the focus turns erotica over story.

While Azazel is the succubus of this work, really the only things known for certain about her is that she is a futa, she enjoys tricking humans, and otherwise there’s very little told about her. It’s a shame because I thought she was interesting and I wanted to know more about her.

The erotica are a short series of hot flashes, with a little bit of a gender transformation added to the latter part of the work. The thing is, while the erotica is told in all kinds of detail, the transformation isn’t. Nick is “changed” in an instant and the erotica quickly moves on from there. There’s a distinct “over the top” quality to much of the erotica which took me out of the story at several points as it was, many times, just pushing too far past the boundaries of what I could accept.

I wanted to know more about Azazel. There are some interesting quirks about her, such as calling Nick “morsel” that I wanted to know more about. Really much of what is seen of Azazel’s personality is very interesting, but it isn’t used much more as a tease to draw Nick to his “doom” overall. The focus of the work, mainly on the erotica, doesn’t tell much in the way of a story. While there is some well written futa erotica and a fair amount of BDSM as well, and a little bit of a gender change, they are there for the sake of the erotica. I wished for more story to balance things out, but that didn’t happen.

The characters need to be developed more, there needs to be at least one more editing pass as there are one minor tense problems in the work. The erotica is a little over the top, the story needs to be more present.

Two and a half out of five pitchforks.

Too much erotica and not enough story and character development. Azalea is interesting, and I’d like her to be shown not to be stereotypical. There’s something good in this series and I hope the author will consider building up a mythos and story overall going forwards to balance things out more.
