Umbrage a movie that seems not for Succubi…

There is an indepenent movie in its final stages of production called Umbrage. Now, according to the trailer which you can see below, the have a character in it called Lilith…

But from what little I have been able to gather, she isn’t exactly like the traditional myths…

And in case the embedding doesn’t work:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_QaUWwHG3Y

The movie is described as being a stylish and gory vampire film. It follows s a family that has moved into a remote farm, and find themselves in the middle of a centuries-old feud between Lilith and a cowboy vampire hell-bent on revenge…

One summary described it as:

In the Old West, the assassination of an ageing cowboy is thwarted by a sultry vampiress, the would-be killer left for dead in the dust. A hundred years later an ancient obsidian mirror, long unearthed from the Mesopotamian desert, is liberated from an American collector’s vault and illegally transported to Europe. Jacob, an unscrupulous antiques dealer, moves to a remote farmhouse with his pregnant young wife, Lauren, and his difficult ward, Rachel.

His goals are clear: to pass this near-priceless mirror to the highest bidder, and to prevent these two women from ripping each other apart. Nearby, a beautiful ornithologist, in nocturnal pursuit of the Screech Owl, is disturbed in her hide by a couple of noisy hikers. Her efforts ruined, she joins them by their campfire, but when one of them is mysteriously mutilated in the woods, she and the other are forced to flee and seek refuge at Jacob’s farm.

Something has been unleashed into the dark of that night…. Shadows take on a life of their own, and the blood begins to flow. Maybe it’s all down to the ominous cowboy hiding in the barn who doesn’t seem to cast any reflection in the dark mirror. Maybe it’s because the shiny black artifact is the enchanted talisman and portal of Lilith, the willful first wife of Adam, exiled from Eden to spawn her demonic offspring. The family find themselves in the middle of a century old grudge between a vengeful undead cowboy and the re-awakened Lilith, mother to the Succubi, ruler of shadows, slaughterer of children, and consort to the devil himself. Sometimes the only weapon against evil is evil itself.

The official site for the film can be found here.

While the trailer above shows some hints of the movie, there is a more X-rated version of it that you can find on the net. One such place is here. Please note that it is not safe for work and you will have to pass an age check before seeing it.

Lilith herself is played by the Scottish actress Natalie Celino, and she is really quite beautiful, both in her appearance which is really nicely seductive, and her portrayal of the role, which reflects many facets of Lilith..

The only problem that I have is the usual ones…

Lilith does not seem to have any horns or tail, and, it appears that she is a vampiress, more accurately, the Queen of the Vampires, in this  film. It continues to bother me that the legend of Lilith, and for that matter, Succubi, continue to be mixed into the legends of vampires, which in truth they shouldn’t be….

I want to give this movie a chance to impress me. Really and truly I would love to be able to watch it and be able to say at the end that Lilith and Succubi were portrayed well here…

But all of the signs tell me not to expect too much, but I am hoping that I am wrong on that point…

It should be out soon…

I will be watching…

Succubi Image of the Week 132

This week’s Succubi is something that I rather enjoy a lot in seeing…

After all, succubi cheerleaders would be something to see wouldn’t they?

Honestly I think this is just an inspired piece of artwork…

It is the work of an artist on Hentai Foundry that calls themselves Vamptod. They have posted quite a number of works there, but this is the only Succubus work that I could find there….

It is a commission work of a Succubus cheerleader, as you have probably figured out by now…

I love the details in their pencil art, the outfit, pom-poms and overall pose is just delicious, although as always there are a couple of things that I don’t like as much…

She does have hooves, never really have liked them on Succubi, and the other thing is that she has wings, something as well that I don’t really care for a lot…

But her expression, her horns and especially her tail are just wonderful and I think they are perfect for her…

You can find their page on Hentai Foundry here, and the original page with this art here.

They also have a DeviantArt page, which you can find here as well…

Yummy, sexy, succubi cheerleader…

What more can you ask for?

The Realm’s Canada Day…

Bet you thought you saw a Succubi of the week post this morning didn’t you? Well that’s been moved to tomorrow as there is a tradition to continue today…

It is Canada Day of course, July 1st, and as has been  tradition for the last three years here on the Tale, the Poet Laureate of the Realm, my dear friend James, has added a new stanza to a Realmized version of O Canada…

And once again, his talents are amazingly wonderful…

O Canada!

No Realm, but one nice land!

True patriot love in succubi command.

With playful hearts and glowing eyes,

quite mischievous and free,

above our bangs our horns shall rise,

O Canada, for thee.

Gorgeous and glad, glorious and free,

O Canada, we swisch our tails for thee.

O Canada, we swisch our tails for thee.

Incubi, too,

stand proud, tall, and erect

(watching their mates results in great effect)!

Their tails reach out to wrap around

the beauties whom they see,

arousal in each sight and sound

sets their libidos free!

He touches her, Eternal-ly!

Make Canada the Realm and set it free!!

Make Canada the Realm and set it free!!

In Canada

we try not too make spills,

and, in the Realm, we first break stiff men’s wills.  😉

We don’t approve of making mess

that’s not necessary.

With huggles we get more success

(what fireworks we’ll see!).

We’ll tie and rub to set you free;

send Canada upon a lustful spree!!

Send Canada upon a lustful spree!!

Just too too wonderfully playful and delicious my heart… Thank you so much for continuing this story for us all…

*huggles and shares some potato salad with our Poet Laureate*

Horny Jogging Succubus?

Sometimes I wonder if the concept of a costume, or anything in the fashion world, starts out as someone saying… I wonder how kitchie I can get…

This qualifies I think…

If this isn’t kitch I don’t know what is…

This consists of two items that are available for purchase at that site what I cannot name, but you, I am sure, can google the trashiness if you really wanted to…

The first is the jacket, it is made of fleece and is not a ful length jacket. Horns are attached to the hood of the cropped zip front jacket.

Two stripes run along each sleeve, and there are two pockets for keeping your hands warm. The kitchy part is that the word “horny” is lettered across the back of the jacket. It costs $200 US.

The other part is the pants which have “devil” lettered across the back over the bum.

The pants are $160 US…

It seems to me that it’s a lot of money to spend on a jogging suit, regardless of the kitch factor in it all…

To be honest, I would think about getting the jacket, but the horns look too flimsy and they are somewhat large for my taste.

I think that there is something I am missing in this offering, most likely that most people would never actually use this as a jogging outfit, but I would really think about using the jacket, but the pants? I just don’t know…

Kitch is important, but this one goes ever so slightly over the line I think…

I’ll give the jacket three out of five pitchforks, the pants just do nothing for me to be honest…

There is better I think to be found, but to see the look on my Eternal?

I am tempted…

Temptations 67

To tell the truth is not just a game, but can open your eyes to what you cannot admit to… The Queen of the Succubi knows this, but not all do…

___________________

Temptations 67

By TeraS and Legion & Alei

Tera shook her head and smiled, “No Maria… That is what you believe I want to hear…. It’s not the truth… Not even close to it… What you want more than anything else is to go back to that family…. Forget all about this…. Be their mother… Wife and more… I can see that in you Maria…”

She tilted her head in that way she did when she had something to say that was meant to be listened to and began. “If you cannot see, then there is nothing that I can do to make you do so… The words you speak are only there to mask your from what you truly want… Truly need…. If you accept the illusion of the world… The truth cannot be…”

A lock of hair fell over Tera’s right eye and she said to her clearly, “Truth Maria. Say it…. Please?”

Maria looked at the Queen and was now puzzled, she had spoken the truth.  But it was as if the Queen wanted another answer.  It pained her deeply that she had caused such harm for her own selfishness.  The Queen  had been right in what she had said earlier, she had broken much faith without thinking.  Perhaps someday she would be able to do as the Queen suggested and live as both a Succubi in a mortal guise, but she knew that she needed to learn more before that could ever happen.

Maria did want to return to the family she had left, but she couldn’t be both Succubi and human, at least not now.  And to try would only serve to dishonor the Queen and family she had had for centuries.  And she had done enough of that already.

Looking into the Queen’s eyes she said softly, “The truth is that I am a Succubi and I should not have given in to desires that went against what has been written for centuries beyond number.  You are right, oh Queen, that others have taken human form and lived.  They just have not crossed the line I crossed.  I could return, but it should be for the right reasons, and I have proven my motives are not.”

She looked at the Queen and her mortal lover, “I am, and only am A Succubi, and it is all I should be until the day I learn what I must and what you have always known my Queen.”

Tera sighed a bit, “This all comes back around to the question of what all of this has done to you Maria…” She looked at Legion, “So you gave her a taste of something she desired… Now that has passed and she is no better off than she was before she stepped on the path you gave her… You gained from her and she has not learned anything from the experience….”

She looked back to Maria and said, “You are not just a Succubi…. You know that in your heart… You want the things that we cannot have… They tempt you and draw you towards them… They make you take a chance… And then you gain nothing from it… Dammit it all to hell Maria…”

Tera sighed, “You don’t want this… You’d be happier where you were… It’s clear to me… Why isn’t it clear to you?”

She slipped from Andrea’s grasp and drew a square in the air with a finger. There was a shimmer and then a thick book wrapped in leather bindings appeared in front of her… Tera opened the book and flipped through it slowly… On each page was a picture of a Succubi and her name written upon it… Tera didn’t say anything until she finally came upon Maria’s name and picture in the book. Taking hold of that page with two fingers, she curled the edge of the page between her fingers before looking at Maria…

She asked her, “Your choice Maria… There is only one way this can go…  Three souls need you more than I do… You made a difference for them… You took them from the Dark and gave them Light… Now they are without you… Is their end what you truly want? Truly?”

He had been watching the exchange with Maria and the Queen for a time as he regained his strength after his little stunt in bringing her here.  But now, the Queen’s words, not very friendly, caused him to speak out.

“My Queen, I offered her what she wanted, I forced nothing.  The choice was hers and hers alone.  And as for passing, forgive me my Queen, but YOU are the one who had me call her here as you doubted my intentions.  This is the first pact I have broken in a thousand centuries, and I did it at your request.  She would have remained there, happy and with the children, until her mortal life ended.  As for learning… are you so unsure of your own subjects that you will not take them at their word?”

He managed to sit up a little straighter now his strength had almost fully returned, “As I have said, the family she was with no longer remember her ever being there.  They are as they were if I had never inserted Maria into their life.  The home she was in was not broken, simply sad, as all mortals get when death comes.  But they will move on as well, as all mortals do.”

He looked at Maria and bowed his head for a moment, “Maria has show the courage to admit that the massive responsablity of true love, and the love of children, is not one she feels ready for.  It does not mean she doesn’t want it, it only means she wants it when she is ready.  Have not you, yourself my Queen, mentioned that there are other Succubi who can take this path if they choose?  Is it so wrong for Maria to want to be sure of all aspects of herself?”

He looked at the Queen and her love and nodded, “Not all matters of the heart are as strong, true, and correct as the one you share with her.”

Maria had listened to both the Queen and Legion for a time.  Seeing the Queen pull out the book surprised her as she didn’t think that the Queen was willing to push things that far.

“No, their end is not what I want, but their lives will not end… and their hearts are not broken at my being gone as Legion has said.  I am not the only light they can have.”

She looked the Queen squarly in the eye, trying to convey what she felt, “MY Queen, I have errored and sinned in my selfish desires.  I was weak and it caused great trouble, I let my needs come before my responsabilites.  If I would do that as a Succubi… would I do that as a mortal?  Legion only promised a family, but mortal families are not perfect.  In a few years time, what if I did it again, but with the children and their father?”

She shook her head, “Above all, we are meant for joys, pleasures, dreams, and what is right for the mortal we are with.  If I love them and you my Queen, how can I honestly say that, I will not be so selfish again, when I was horriably selfish in the first place?  It caused so much trouble this time… what will happen if I am weak again?”

She walked over and in a breach of conduct rested her hand on the Queen’s hand that held the page, “I have to be better my Queen.  For them, for you, and for myself.  Because if I am not… then I am not worthy of any of you.  Someday, when I have learned not to be selfish, not to put the need of myself over the needs of my duties, I will return to them.  But for now, let me be a Succubi… who has much to learn.”

Much to learn and it is the hope that all do someday….

Storm Clouds

Chapter 14

By TeraS

After Camilla left, Tom spent the next thirty minutes grilling Bill over what he had done, what he was doing, and whether anyone in his company might have taken it upon themselves to attack Brent and his wife. He came to the decision that, while Bill wasn’t directly involved in what happened, he could not dismiss the possibility that someone that worked for Bill had done the deed . . . or that Bill was hiding something from him.

That bothered him.

It wasn’t that he didn’t believe what Bill had said, it was the sheer stupidity of Bill going off his rocker and going off on a tirade over the injustice that he perceived was done to him.

Tom didn’t enjoy pushing his old friend that way. Worse was trying to break all of his explanations and reasons why he wasn’t responsible for what had happened. Most of the reasons made sense, most of them, but one exchange just about pushed Bill over the edge, and that worried him.

Tom sighed and paced in front of the offices again.  He was sure that the workers inside were looking at him oddly, but he didn’t care: Bill was not quite cleared; that one piece of evidence would damn him in court if it came to that.

Tom hoped that it wouldn’t.

Camilla came into view soon after, her heels clicking on the concrete floor of the warehouse. Tom noticed that Billy wasn’t there, and he wasn’t too pleased about that. He had been intending to grill Billy next, thanks to his father’s admission, but was now preparing to go hunt him down and corner him. Filing away the thoughts on his old friend, he called out to Camilla, “Where’s Billy? Have to talk to him.”

“No you don’t. He’s not to blame for this: he nor his father.”

Tom rubbed his chin a moment, then said, “You got a feeling or something?”

She looked around, then nodded and explained, “Let’s just say that my … feelings … are pretty accurate.”

Turning away, he replied, “You’ll have to explain that to me sometime. Soon would be great. You know, before I have to toss them both in jail.”

Camilla looked at him curiously, then followed behind. Tom seemed to be in a rush to get out of the warehouse, and she found herself running a bit to keep up with him. Then she asked, “Do you have something to charge them with?”

“Enough to charge him: making threats. He was foolish in front of a lot of people. That’s a big no-no in things like this.”

“Passions of the heart can make us all say silly things we don’t mean at the moment they are said.”

“Passions can and have killed in the past, you know.”

Camilla had finally caught up to him, and, as she walked beside, started to lecture Tom a bit, “Those are not passions. Those are misguided beliefs and desires that pull one from what is important inward, toward oneself. It is easy to fall to darker desires and temptations than it is to hold onto the more important things within.”

“You know, I don’t understand all of that stuff. I’m just a simple man. I haven’t got the time to deal with theories and wishes. I deal in facts. Give me some of those and I’ll be able to deal with ‘em.”

“All right then, fact: Bill said that he would never harm a lady. Fact: you agree that he would not either. Therefore, he cannot be the one to have done the deed nor order it done.”

“Okay, see that’s not a fact: that is conjecture.”

“Is it? I don’t think so. I have …”

“A feeling? You said that before. What does that mean?”

The pair exited the warehouse, but Camilla did not speak until she was quite sure that no one could hear her.

“I … We … know people by their souls, Thomas. When I touched your hand, I knew that you were a good man. I also knew that you have a troubled past and that you have lost someone close to you.”

Tom’s look was a mix of shock and concern, but, before he could say anything, she continued.

“I didn’t look deeply into you. I did not look into your memories; I could have, but you didn’t give me permission, so all I knew was that you cared about what happened to Patricia, for whatever reason you had, and so …”

He stopped walking, “You used me.”

“No. I did not. I gave you the card. I gave you the chance to walk away.  You decided that you needed to find out more and you came into our world. Do not confuse the sight of an open door with walking through it. You had the choice. You made it.”

Tom wanted to rant at her, but her logic was sound. He did poke his nose in, and he was deep in it now. With a sigh, he asked, “How much do you know about Bill and his son?”

“Enough to know that Bill has not killed anyone, ever. I can say the same for Billy, as well.”

“Okay, explain that … in simple words so that my mind doesn’t break.”

Camilla laced her hands together and explained, “If you are dark, or have been touched by the dark, if you have killed or done something that serves the dark and makes it gain power, you are marked, in your soul, with that. If I touch someone like that, I’ll know. The same is true of someone who has been touched by the light, but it is different.”

“Weird. Sort of sounds like you are a divining rod.”

She giggled a bit: “Divine I’m not.”

And with her right hand she pointed at her forehead.

“What most people are, generally, are shades of grey. That’s normal, and what we expect from most. But there are always exceptions to that rule. If either of them had killed, they would not be grey; they would be dark. I don’t sense that in either of them.”

“So, you give them a pass?”

“I give them more than a pass: there is nothing in them that screams they are involved. But …”

“But what?”

“I asked Billy for a favor.”

So there is a Succubus in The Gates?

So there is a Succubus in The Gates?

For those that are not aware, the Gates is a summer show on ABC that is sort of a mix of Sex In The City and Vampires Diaries.

Neither of which do much for me, but I digress…

Well, at least this teaser that was released this past week seems to point at that…

And in case the embedding doesn’t work:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfF7wb3QH8I

So, according to the preview at least, the character named Andie Bates, is a Succubus. Which is of course a problem for the guy she has a crush on in the series who is named Charlie Monohan.

Is she a real Succubus?

So far there is little proof of that, this weekend’s episode I hope will straighten out things to some extent, however I have not seen any evidence of Succubi in the series that match with the traditional ones. Moreover, this is an ABC show, so I am not expecting to actually see Succubi running around the series seducing various characters and taking away their souls.

Especially the teenaged Succubus that they seem to have in mind…

I’d like to see a back story on the Succubi in the series, but I have the awful feeling that the series will take the view that vampires and Succubi are the same thing, like a lot of vampires book and shows, thus continuing a legacy of smashing up myths and making what is a clear myth of the Succubi, muddled by a need to play to the current vampire craze that seems to be popular in media these days…

The other thing that bugs me about the teaser is, there is a test for Succubiness?

Seriously?

Is there going to be a test for all of the other creatures on the series? I’m rather disappointed that there is a nice, simple scientific means to detect Succubi…

Of course in the universe of the TV series I suppose it makes sense, but otherwise?

Yuck.

Lastly, I wonder if they will dare to show our young Succubus with horns and a tail. Now since this is ABC, and they didn’t have the Succubi in the television series The Middleman, a series that they killed off far before its time, with either of those, I am not holding my breath.

Regardless of all of that, I am going to watch this and see just how badly Succubi are treated in this universe…

I’ll keep a little bit of hope that I am wrong, but the track record tells me that I will be disappointed again…
