Domino Masks and Succubi do mix…

Domino Masks and Succubi do mix… Well occasionally they do, but that depends on the mask really…

For those that do not know, Domino masks are usually see at masquerade balls when you want to disguise who you are…

Thing is, some Domino masks don’t really do that to be honest…

This particular style I have some issues with and I’ll have to explain that a little bit…

Most Domino masks cover quite a lot of your face when you are wearing one. I have seen some masks where they leave only your cheeks visible while the rest is covered by the mask or feathers and other things attached to them.

Now, while I understand that this mask isn’t exactly made with the same amount of “mystery”, I think that decision also makes for an odd looking mask.

That concern comes from the openings in the bottom part of the mask, which I think shouldn’t be there. Somehow I think that it would have been better to remove those lower parts and leave this looking more like a pair of glasses with horns on them.

It’s a good start, but I just think that it’s missing a certain amount of Succubiness in it…

There has to be a story in there somewhere to ponder…

Temptations L (50)

The Queen of the Succubi sees temptations… Does she respond?

_______________________

Temptations L

By TeraS and Legion

Tera did not react as he ranted and moved around her. That was the thing about people that dealt with her. They never seemed to understand that she would never be angry… Never be upset…. Never be unruly… For that was never her way….

She did her best in other ways…

But if they expected anger…. So be it then…

She smiled slightly and said, “Legion is it? How quaint… Have all of your campaigns driven you to me then? Should I feel honored that you have brought yourself to me in this way?” Her tail stopped swishing and peeked over her left shoulder as she purred, “As for having to meet me…. Are you sure that you are? Reality and the mind are so easily swayed you know…”

She tilted her head to the left to rest it upon her hand and continued, “Let’s see…. You did things to my kind that I’m not sure that you can be forgiven for… You have tried to impinge on my honour by suggesting that I do not care about my kind…. You have acted as one that thinks that I am to be toyed with…. You expect me to quake in surprise at your efforts… You believe that in some some way I will come to trust you and perhaps accept you in some way….”

She chuckled a bit, “Lots of things against you my dear Legion… The hole you dig is deeper and deeper with each passing moment…. If you know me… You’ll know the right answers…. If not then you will find that the game you seek is not the one you desire…”

Then she waved her left hand a little, “As for the words of my kind…. My dear Legion… They would never speak of me in that way… But then you never thought to ask them for my truth… And so from the beginning you are in the trap that you have set for yourself…”

Legion didn’t spend the last few thousand years making deals not to know a bluff when he heard it.  He would be the biggest kind of fool to enter Tera’s place without knowing everything there was to know of her.

But if she wanted to underestimate him, so much the better.  This was going to be a very interesting game, two manipulators, masters of the deal, clashing.. to what end?

That was going to be a pleasure to find out.

“Oh Queen, you wound me.  You cut me to the quick,” he says lightly.

“It is I who am honored to be in the mear shadow of you oh legendary Queen.  Though I doubt you would treat a guest so rudely as to send only a phantom, even a phantom of you would be enjoyable.”

He can see in her eyes she is playing the game, just as he is.  But this is a different game for both of them.  Standard wares and tricks will only waste time and not amount to anything.  This will be a test of stepping outside the norms.

That is why he spent so long planning this little venture after all.

“I have not come here to ask for forgiveness for any affront oh Queen.  I feel they are very happy.  If granting them their desire is wrong then we are both guilty as sin.  And if I impinged your honor I deeply apologize.”

He bows slightly, never taking his eye from her’s.

“And I expect nothing at all, save the pleasure of your company.  As for trust… well, let us be honest, you trust me as much as I do you, which is to say not at all.”

He smiles very slightly, “But then how many who have walked through that door have trusted you from the moment they saw you? Oh eventually they do, but not at once.”

He wanted to laugh at what she had said about her kind.  She had been in charge so long it never occurred to her what would happen if someone else took charge of one of her kind.  It was a common mistake dealers made and one he was very careful not to make himself.

“But you would be AMAZED what your kind says when the barriers are down,”  he looks over another book shelf.

“So many…” he mutters softly before continuing, “I mean, have not some of the folks in your tender deals changed tunes once they have been given what they desire?  Are Succumbi THAT different from others?  Honestly, no.  You might want to taste one of your own in the same way you taste everyone else… might be a new experience for you.”

He turns back to her, “So, since I am sure you ask, because you ALWAYS ask, ‘What do I desire?’  I will answer:  How about a nice cup of something warm and soothing and a pleasant chat between like minded folks… meaning you and me.”

Tera listened to Legion’s words with some bemusement, the tip of her tail just moving ever so slightly as he spoke his thoughts and opinions to her. She thought to herself, “The problem my dear is that you can’t win by taking charge of a being…. You can control…. You can alter…. But to think you have the being utterly? No no no…. That isn’t the way it works…..

Her voice was calm but there was an undertone of honey in it as she said, “The words spoken by those with no choice are never the words that should be said…. Just what the other might think you want to hear…”

She moved her arms behind her, lacing her fingers together and rocking slightly on her heels as she added, “And oh yes my dear Legion…. We are soooo different from what you think…. You have no idea just how different we are… Because we can be…

She tilted her head to the right and then chuckled a little bit, “You desire a cup of something warm? Alright…” The smile played at her lips, “Coffee.. Tea… Or me? Oh but wait! We both know the answer to that question don’t we?”

Tera walked away from Legion then, her heels clicking on the hard surface beneath her as she moved into the darkness behind her throne. She called behind her, “You can wait here if you wish Legion…. Or you can follow…. The choice is yours…. But if you want a chat…. If you want to speak and that is all… Then I’ll be somewhere else than here….”

Just before she completely faded into the blackness she looked over her shoulder and purred, “After all… You cannot have a chat without a couch and a fireplace can you? And I certainly will not remain as I am, for you have no need to see this aspect of me it seems….”

Then she disappeared, soft laughter marking her passage as she did…

Two Short Succubi Sunday Thoughts…

This past week on the Garden of MC, there was something that poked me into actually doing a little writing finally about Succubi ideas and thoughts…

In short, you start with a single word and then write something but not longer than 55 words in length…

This was my addition to the thread to the theme word Latex:

Commanding

Latex…

Tight, sleek, restricting…

Light shimmering off the curves of the one sealed within. Her finger pointing to the place where your submission to her begins.

The smile on her lips as you sink to the cold floor in submission to her will.

She purrs seductively as you worship at her latex covered altar forever…

That was followed by S.B. taking my theme word Cherry and writing this lovely prose:

The Taste of Temptation

I always wondered what Temptation would taste like if it was something physical, something I could feel instead of simply imagining so.

Then, she came along, raven hair falling in a cascade of curls, green eyes demanding utmost devotion…

As I knelt to kiss her lips, I got my answer.

She tastes like cherry pie.

A yummy continuation of my little tale isn’t it?

Hoping you have some… interesting dreams…

An odd myth mashup idea on YouTube…

Someone on YouTube has an idea for a novel… This is the work of someone named AngelKaiLina, and it’s called Kyla Uncaged… They posted a video of the idea and some of their thoughts on it… What connects that to my particular interest is that they have a character that is, for lack of a better description, a merging of a vampire and a succubus…

So here is the video:

And in case the embedding doesn’t work:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62a06jYuJSU

The author makes the following comments on her concept, I have hi-lighted the parts of it that I have some issues with:

A trailer of sorts for a novel I am writing. (i know the actress for my lead character changes a lil bit, but I am toying with the idea that she can slightly change her facial appearance as part of her abilities. might not make it completely into the book but still use ur imagination a little)

Kayla is an engineered human which the vampires have created. A being infused with the soul of a demon. A succubus. She was to lead to a cure eventually for their weakness to sunlight. However some of the vampires believed that the Kindred were too dangerous to be allowed that kind of immunity. So they attacked the last known infectious Shifter, Matt. His blood was used to infect Kayla. Causing a combination of the bloodlines which has been forbidden for over 12 centuries.


But it had worse side effects. It erased her memory, and altered her into a new kind of Shifter, one who can change at will, without pain and awakens her inner demon, one with a taste for human flesh.

The Clan are an elite group of humans, some chosen for their skills with computers, their healing abilities, their psychic powers and their strength. Guardians for humanity and the police force whom ensure that the Balance is maitained. The child who travels with them, Nina, has a vision about a super weapon the vampires are using to break their one weakness.

Cash their leader, a telekinetic soldier along with his brother Nix, and Tech along with his with Stitch, the teams medic and healer. Starts a hunt along with Horus, a reincarnated ancient warrior and Kit, a Goddess with personal interests in humans, together they race against time to stop Saint, Kaylas former lover. From discovering her location. And plot to kill her if necessary.

Kayla hides amongst humans. She eventually settles in Chicago, with a room-mate called Lisa. However things go badly when she eventually kills Lisa’s abusive boyfriend and the Kindred track her.

Saint offers Kayla a chance to come home, to have him turn her, and they can kill the remaining council members who have ordered her destruction. She refuses. She doesnt trust him.

A fateful encounter leads her to Matt, and they share an instant connection she doesnt understand. Eventually Saint loses his patience and turns Lisa to provoke Kayla.

But its the wrong kind of response he wanted.

Joining forces with Matt, and the Clan, Kayla wages war against her creaters.

And makes a decision, which makes both sides wonder exactly what it is that they have unleashed.

So… The main issue I have in the usual one where succubi and vampires come together, and that is the one that vampires are undead beings and succubi aren’t…

So than, there follows the problem with getting a human to have a succubus soul within her. That part can work with possession or something similar, but I think that the term Succubus as used here, really doesn’t apply…

It’s more like she is a human turned into a vampire that has, by some luck, better powers than other vampires do…

I think that it’s not necessary to even mention Succubi in this work because reading this summary, what she is, really, is the end result of having all sorts of different vampire lines meeting within her and that give her the powers she possesses..

I understand that there are “Succubi” in some vampire myths, but that is in name alone as they don’t have the physical features of succubi nor do they act like Succubi do… They are vampires that have sex as a weapon over others really…

Still, I’m interested in seeing this should it ever appear…

But I won’t be looking for the Succubus in the book as they aren’t really there…

Thoughtful Succubus Artwork…

I came across this image of a Succubus at another Blog and I have two issues with it… The first and most important one is, I have no idea who is the artist, or what it is supposed to represent and that really bugs me a lot so, does anyone know who did this or what it represents?

Whomever is the person that made this work, they are really talented and I’d love to know if they have more such artworks or what else they have created…

I really have no idea of the significance of this work, if there is any… I sort of find myself flipping between something that is part of a game like Dungeons and Dragons. or. possibly this is just a work that an artist was inspired to create…

Either way, it would be nice to know…

UPDATE: With lots of thanks to two readers of the Tale, i have some more information to share on this work…

Shawn commented that:

1. The 3 sets of wings indicates that this is a fallen seraphim it’s rare to see succubi with 3 sets of wings.
2. The dark half moon (aura) around her indicating also that that she is a very power demon.
3.The 3rd eye symbolizing insight and great knowledge.

As well, Steve provided a bit of information on the artist:

Hi. The image is by Bryan Reagan, aka Zarono (who is a really great guy), who does a lot of scrolls for Cthulhu RPGs. He’s on E-bay, here’s other samples of his work at http://myworld.ebay.com/zarono. I hope this helps.

Thank you both so much for taking the time to answer my questions!

Succubi Image of the Week 114

This week’s Image of a Succubus actually answers a few questions for me.. A long time ago I came across an image of a Succubus that was uncredited and I couldn’t figure out who the artist was…

This pencil artwork was that image…

Now, the problem was that although I could find variations on this work, and there are literally hundreds of them if you search for this work, none of them pointed you in the direction of the original artist or anything about them.

So many of those colorizations of this artwork are just quickly done and really just makes her look so unflattering… Especially the ones that gave her blond hair which, to me, just doesn’t make any sense whatsoever…

At least until I was looking through Hentai-Foundry.com… And there she was, but now in amazing full colour and more importantly, the original artist’s name was with this work…

The artist’s name is SteevDragon67, and you can find their page on Hentai-Foundry here.

And more importantly, they show an image there of a completed, colorized version of this art that is, quite simply, devilishly delicious…

The artist noted that:

Here is a repost of my sultry devil girl. This started as a simple background replacement, but since I now have photoshop I thought I’d give her the deluxe treatment! Let me know what you think! Oh, I added detail to her hair, gave her some skin texture, thickened her tail, and added more boobs and booty!

And more importantly… She’s never looked as wonderful in any of her reincarnations as she does right now, right here in this perfect peace of art…

I have always wondered what she would look like in black latex leggings and opera gloves as I think those additions would be the icing on the cake of this work…

The only thing that bothers me a little bit about this work are her earrings, as I just don’t quite like their contrast against her skin and hair…

There are a couple of other Demoness and Succubi images on their Hentai-Foundry page, some of which are X-rated and above, so please be aware!
