A list of Tera’s stories that begin with Q-Z.

Rainfall

Rainfall By TeraS   There are times when the Realm reflects the mood of the Queen herself. Most of the time, really almost all of the time, there is sun above, fine weather, the sort of day when all is right with the world. It seems to offer a hint, in some way, that Tera’s …

Seduction

Seduction By TeraS   “Seduction is, always, more sublime than sex.” As she spoke those words, Tera looked out over the lecture hall, examining the reactions of those who were there.

Those that know me are aware that Mothers’ Day, along with another, are the hardest days of the year for me—especially this year. I’ve written some very sad things about this day, how it affects me, the loss, the pain, the moments when I … want to know … but I’ll never really know. The …

Snoops

Something

Something By TeraS   One of the happiest moments of Tera’s day comes when she peeks into the Library of the Realm, as she is wont to do. Being that she is the Head Librarian, of course, this means that she does so every day. She wanders the hallways, passes a fingertip over the rows …

Something More

Something More By TeraS   It was the middle of the night in the Realm of the Succubi, a time when the stars above played hide and seek with the clouds of the sky, with the waters of the Lake, and, sometimes, with those who found themselves out in the Realm having their own games …

Sometimes

I’ve written many stories about our other selves, some of which come very close to home, some of which are far more reality than fantasy, buried in the words. There are some moments when the Queen needs her King, and it is a lot more than …   Sometimes By TeraS   There is a …

Sparkly Horn Horror

I’ve often wondered if I can write something that’s a bit of a suspense/action-adventure sort of thing with a side order of erotica. This might not be all that I think it can be, but I’m going to take a try at this and see what mischief I can get some of the Realm into… …

Story

Many times, the stories that I write have a lot of reality immersed within them. Sometimes that means the stories say something, if you really take a long look at them. Other times, the words just are what they are, the words not meaning much of anything. But they still make up a …   …

Succubi Anonymous

To those that will read this story, and then moan and complain about my using Succubi for the plural and singular tenses of my characters. Deal with it.

The Choices You Make

The Choices You Make By TeraS   Every person has free choice. Free to obey or disobey the Natural Laws, your choice determines the consequences.

The Second Coming

I have a story to tell; it isn’t really part of the Realm, mind you. Still, I have been nudged by some to “try and write something more evil”, for whatever that might be worth considering.

Tired

Tired By TeraS   There comes a time when one’s soul is worn. That can be due to any number of reasons, expectations, needs, wants or, more often than not, simply a point at which one’s soul, no matter how well intentioned, cannot give anything more. It is, to be blunt, when one is tired. …
