An amazing Succubus painting YouTube

There are some Succubus artworks that I think are inspired… The imagery, colours, forms and overall expression just link together into something wonderful. A process artwork I found on YouTube this week that has all of that within it…

In the event that you cannot see this video here on the Tale, please try this link.

And here is an image of the completed painting by the artist CD plus.

Amazing blend of colours in this painting, I especially like the the sheen on her skin and the reflections within it. It’s a dramatic pose and the background adds to that amazingly. Lovely tail that works with her overall form as a whole which I appreciate.

A wonderful work that tells a story of mystery that I do enjoy…

A Review of The Wrong One by K.K.S.

The Wrong One by K.K.S.

The Wrong One by K.K.S.


I enjoy stories about seduction, the dance it brings between minds, the clash of wits, thoughts and fantasies offered.

It’s delightful to see two characters try to draw one another into their orbits, to spin about themselves and see which soul falls into the other, or if both come to crash into what the seduction brings. A review then of a story in which the seduction is altogether wonderful, but the ending left me… wondering.

The work tells of:

We both ended up at that ball. I was there hunting for a woman. I liked a particular type to meet my needs. She was hunting for something of her own, and she’d sighted me as prey. But at the end of the night, we’d both be discover who’d picked the wrong one…

A look across a room between two solitudes brings about a dance of two hunters seeking prey. The dance becomes their desire and need, bringing the hunters to find themselves both hunted and preyed upon.

The work is a wonderful tease of words and actions from the beginning. Both main characters, who are never named, are seductive in their own ways, leading the other onwards with suggestion, hints and teases so they cannot escape each other’s hunger. The heat simmers, a delightful brew of expectations and replies which paint a vivid picture of what they both want from the other.

It’s not a work of erotica until the foreplay, and there is a lot of that, is torn away and they come together, crashing into their needs and really it’s almost perfectly told in the main character’s thoughts and their actions. There’s no thoughts however from the succubus of the work, save for her dialogue and she’s a bit of a mystery that the main character’s monologue tries to put into focus but really doesn’t get to the core of who she is above what she is.

The succubus herself is a bit different than what one would expect her to be. She’s seductive, without question, but at the climax of the work, when her true nature appears, it’s a bit of a shock from the seduction before and turns the story on its head. She’s a distinctly different sort of being, and sharply different most succubi.

It’s at this point where the truths of both characters are revealed… mostly. I felt a bit disappointed at the ending, but it was suggested from the beginning where things were going if one paid attention to the main characters’ cloaked references to themselves. It’s abrupt, a bit sad, and overall I’d have liked something more than where things fall.

Not a complete answer, just one that offers something more of who they both really are and what they both really are. This is, regardless of my feelings about the ending, simply a wonderfully told seduction and I enjoyed the work for that most of all.

Four and a half pitchforks out of five.

Well told seduction with two characters who delight in the game as much as the rewards. Perhaps more of why things were and who both characters are beyond the seduction would have been nice. And something more of an ending than there is. An excellent piece of writing nonetheless and well enjoyed.

Succubi Image of the Week 698

There’s quite a number of card games that have Succubi appearing in them. Occasionally there’s an image that’s more about the character and the power they have than the sexuality alone. An image then this week of a succubus which I think is quite delicious…

This work is by the artist kamiyamark on DeviantArt and you can find the original page with this art here.

Lovely detail in this art, her expression is something between amused and bored I think. It’s almost like whomever she is looking at is barely worth her time. The armour, what little there is works well with her body shape. Interesting horns and tail, they frame her form well along with her wings.

A powerful presence, which really succubi should always be…

A label on this costume doesn’t make it any better

Sinfully Sweet Bedroom Costume
There are some costumes that make me wonder what they were thinking… there are some costumes when I can’t quite figure out why they thought this was a good idea. Then comes this week’s disaster where they couldn’t help but put a huge “Devil” label on it, just to be sure you knew what this was supposed to be…

This is called the Sinfully Sweet Bedroom Costume and it comes with the top, the bottom, G-string, garters and horns. The pitchfork is not included and it sells for $50 US, but can be found on sale for $35 US.

Sinfully Sweet Bedroom Costume
This is the first costume I’ve ever shown two images of and there’s a good reason. The trashy level is well over 6000 with the wonderful addition of the word “Devil” in huge letters as you can see in the image.

This is… honestly I can’t figure out the words to express how far into levels of trashy this looks with that silly writing on it. Yes the horns aren’t good, yes this is supposed to be worn in an intimate setting. But really if you can’t figure out what this might be as a look, I have serious doubts about either one’s fashion sense or the lack of imagination this involves.

Zero out of five pitchforks, mainly for the writing on this model’s derrière, but even if that wasn’t there this would barely make a one.

Better things are out there and really this is just silly… which might explain why the model is pulling on her ponytail…

A Review of Dominated By Demons by Alexis Foxx

Dominated By Demons by Alexis Foxx

Dominated By Demons by Alexis Foxx

A review today of the first work in a series where the main character desires everything she can be, but is completely lost when she’s offered it.

What makes that interesting is that in becoming so, there’s something unique about her and that can lead the series towards something I hope it can be. The question is, can the story get past the erotica and become the story it should be.

The work tells of:

Learning to be a succubus isn’t easy, and it involves swallowing a lot more than your pride.
Desperate and near-homeless, Mia Davis is given an ancient tome from her coven that promises great fortune – by trading your soul to demons. Wishing to save her soul and still pay rent, Mia instead attempts to seduce the The Alpha demons lurking within.
Unfortunately, Mia has a lot to learn about seduction. Fortunately, the demons inside are more than willing to help educate this new witch the only way they know how: rough, hot, and hard. To the budding submissive succubus, being handled by three massive demons feels a lot more like heaven than hell.
With her soul in the balance, how much can Mia take from these three hulking demons?

Mia is at the end of her rope and seeking a way to get ahead. A book opened takes her to encountering demons to offer her power through becoming a succubus. But sometimes the getting isn’t as good as the having. When that means giving up one’s soul, Mia should have looked and listened before she leaped.

The work for the most part focuses on Mia being entrapped with the three demon/incubi of the story, Samael, Azrael and Gabrael. Being so, it means the work is mainly focused on the erotica and leaves much of the storytelling to the beginning and end of the work. While that does fit the tone, it’s a bit rushed and a bit lost among all of the sex that happens.

The erotica itself is very male dominant and Mia is used in just about every way she can be. While some of the actual scenes are a bit over the top for my liking, for Mia they are what she seems to desire so it doesn’t feel out of place in that respect. However the three incubi, even if they don’t all claim to be, are not holding back in their actions, dialogue or desires. They come so very close to being stereotypical, and that took away a lot of my interest in them. Perhaps that was more of a means to frighten Mia than anything else, but at some point the constant “use” gets a bit worn and bland. It really shouldn’t have.

The thing is, there’s several clues and events in the work that make me wonder about how Mia got into the situation she finds herself in. It might be only a passing mention or two, but if the story is meant to be something more than the erotica, that should be a plot point to expand on.

Three out of five pitchforks.

The incubi are, overall, too close to being stereotypical and I hope there’s something more as the series continues. Similarly, I hope that Mia’s transformation doesn’t fall into her being a stereotypical succubus either. There’s a lot of good in this work so far and moving all of the characters towards something better and more in-depth beyond what’s been revealed I think will make this a better story.

I will be looking for the next work in the series to be released in the hope that, perhaps, some of the dangling plot threads are tugged on. Perhaps Mia becomes something more than just a plaything for the incubi, and with any luck at all, she’ll become something far more than anything she’s expected to be. There’s a good chance of that and I hope the series overall becomes what I think it could well be.

Loveseat By TeraS

My heart, for whose advice, thoughts, and most of all compassion in reading my story messes and guiding my thoughts often makes something more than they first appeared, pondered a thought the other evening. I found myself rather taken by it in many ways. It makes sense in the Realm; it does mesh nicely with the mythos and all. But the question remains as to what happens at the …

Loveseat
By TeraS

It is well known that Tera doesn’t particularly like pomp and ceremony. There’s just something about it that rubs her, and her tail, the wrong way. This has, on many occasions, led to discusses with one particular red-tail with the whitest hair Tera had ever seen. That is, of course, her uncle.

At one point he had suggested that the throne of the Realm was wherever Tera happened to rest, be that an actual throne, lawn chair, or, as his niece suggested with a bemused smile, an inflatable pool chair. His niece was, after all, not exactly a stereotypical Queen of the Realm—not that she would ever want to be.

This discussion had gone on for some time between them when an invitation arrived from the Realm Museum for the opening of a new exhibit. The parchment note bid Her Majesty to see a collection of thrones that had been of use to the rulers of the Realm in ages past.

This, Tera decided, was something she would have to attend. Her uncle, however, would not be able to. After all, his favourite hockey team was in the playoffs. This bemused the ebon-maned Queen of the Realm, as she knew her Uncle would be making notes to punctuate his rant that evening when he called.

The Museum was, as always, a place of delight for the red-tail’s senses. This wasn’t a place where the past was sealed behind glass, roped off, set far away from those attending. One could, if one wished, touch the pitchfork of an ancestor, feel the material of a formal gown, and, if one was very careful, perhaps even be able to see if that gown or that suit of armour would fit them—assuming, of course, the guardian of the museum thought they might be the right size.

The director was Joseph, a green-tailed incubi who greeted Tera’s arrival on the steps leading to the main entrance. He had assumed that she would be informal as Tera was wont to do. He didn’t expect the bemused Queen of the Realm to arrive wearing her dress of legend.

She teased him with a smile, “Hello Joseph, I must apologize for being a bit tardy. I hope you don’t mind.”

He had to admit to himself that, while Tera was delightful in more ways than he could count, he still held hopes that, someday, there would be one entire museum to her name, with that dress at the centre of it all. But he also knew that Tera would pitchfork him if she knew. Yet, as her smile turned ever so much more bemused, he realized she probably knew his hopes just by looking at him.

“Your Majesty … I mean … Tera?”

Brushing her gloved hands over her thighs, she explained: “It is my understanding that your new exhibit contains every throne of the Realm there has been.”

His reply was a bit guarded, “There is one major omission, of course.”

She smiled, “I’m sure you’ll have what’s missing at some point.” Of course she knew.

Stepping closer to him, the red-tailed Monarch continued, her eyes sparkling, “I have it in mind to … closely examine every one of them. I would like to see what … might be the best fit for my tail.”

He did his very best not to make the obvious comment about her tail, “Of course.” Held by so-green eyes, the mesmerized one with a similar-coloured tail just nodded as the Queen continued: “You won’t mind, of course?”

Finding himself now hand in hand with the Queen, the green tail wondered how many of his kin would be grilling him for the events of the evening. “Might I take pictures?”

The Monarch’s soft giggle as her subject led the way to the exhibit was promising.

As the sun rose above the horizon marking the dawn of a new day, Tera was brooding over what she had seen, and how disappointed she was in it all. So many different thrones of so many varying shapes, textures, and usefulness, and not one of them seemed to fit her exactly right. It had taken all night to examine them all, twice over to be sure she hadn’t been making assumptions, before the audience came to a close and the revelation was clear. Not one of them would do.

Now returned home, Tera reclined and mulled over everything, still ensconced in the dress of legend. This is how her Eternal discovered her. He recognized the expression, the tapping of a finger on her lovely red lips and the turning over of thoughts that came when she was slightly miffed. He knew something was making her tail itch, and that wasn’t a good thing. Tera came out of her musing with a start when he offered a mug of hot chocolate. His expression showed his concern and she smiled in that way that only one Eternal can for another.

Cupping his ebon-maned love’s chin, he lightly kissed her and then asked, “Can I help?”
A pat of a gloved hand beside her bade him welcome and so one Eternal settled in with another.

Sipping from her mug, Tera began, “You know, every ruler of our world has had a throne. I’ve settled into every one of them, looked out from the perch they had. Imagined what they would have been, said, or proclaimed.”

Keith had laced the fingers of one hand with Tera’s free one as he offered, “Not one of them was right, was it?”

The mug placed on the end table, she nodded: “Some too hard, some too soft, nothing was just right.”

Her red-tailed soulmate kissed her fingers, “If you’re trying to be Goldilocks, you haven’t the hair for it.”

Tossing her hair to the side, she considered him with a naughty look. “I’m pickier.”

“Ah, but you are just right for me.”

Sighing, the red-tail curled into his embrace, closing her eyes, “You know we’ll have to figure out a throne sometime. There’s not enough room at the museum for all of the things that we’ve rested on.”

Keith was silent for a time, his tail twining with Tera’s own before he spoke.

“I have a suggestion.”

Tera opened her eyes. “Oh?”

“Are you comfortable?”

Her purr was temptation, “Yes.”

“Are you happy?”

So-green eyes glistened with love, “I’m with you.”

“There’s your answer. This is our official throne, always has been.”

A red loveseat, trimmed in silver, just big enough for two in love to be intimate and entwined. A simple thing, most would say, seen on its own, but for two Eternals in love, it was the expression of their love and what they had, together, built the Realm upon. The Eternals drew together, their passions christening the loveseat into the symbol of their reign.

For love was the throne upon which the Realm was built …

A Review of I Would Make You Mine: A Story Of The Succubus by Effie Rivers

I Would Make You Mine: A Story Of The Succubus by Effie Rivers

I Would Make You Mine: A Story Of The Succubus by Effie Rivers

The mythos of succubi lends itself to be being shaped and altered in order to create new myths and stories about them.

At the same time, those new stories can bring about questions about not just the characters themselves, but questions about what is right and wrong. A review then of a different sort of succubi myth and how a single choice can have lasting effects in more than one way.

The work tells of:

Daphne and Kathleen have lived as succubi for nine-hundred years. Their mortality nears, and they must find a new heir for their East European throne. They have selected a distant cousin from North America to inherit their wealth, but will the cousin want to live as a succubus after she is witness to the loneliness, violence, and empty sex that accompanies the life of a succubi?

There comes a time when one generation of succubi brings into being the next. Choices are made and truths are revealed not just to those that are, but to those that come next. But with the truths plain to see, what is the path forward and what is the best path to choose.

The work is an interesting progression of events between two succubi twins, Kathleen and Daphne, and their soon to be sister Monika. The work tells, through the characters, of each view of themselves, their kind, the relationship they have with humanity. This runs between something close to one character being almost stereotypical in nature to another being slightly more than humane in their personality. How these personalities clash, the choices that come from the interactions and the end result, bring out the core beliefs they share and occasionally reject.

There is a bit of erotica along the way, but it’s not overpowering and doesn’t get in the way of the story itself. Perhaps it’s more accurate to say that the erotica is a means to an end and how that turns the thoughts of some of the succubi towards what might have been and what they are proves to be interesting.

The work does need some editing however, there’s a bit of story confusion here and there, some occasional word misuse or spelling errors as well. Overall the thing that’s missing is a lack of direction for the characters and story which slows the progress of things from time to time. Cleaning up the story a bit both in flow and action I think would make this a lot more than it is and should be.

Three and a half out of five pitchforks.

A unique take on the succubi mythos, interesting characters with flaws that bring about their own transformations. I’d have liked something more from the ending, it’s a bit abrupt for my tastes, but in that a lot of questions are left behind and it does provide another unique viewpoint on succubi that was lovely to see.
