I’d rather have a tail cozy in the middle of winter

Fuzzy Devil Hat
In case you haven’t noticed, it’s a bit cold outside and there’s this stuff called snow on the ground.

While this week’s… thing… isn’t really a costume, it does have horns. All that said, to be clear, the only reason this is appearing today is because of a few stories in the Realm where tail cozies have appeared.

This is called the Fuzzy Devil Hat, you can see what you get, and it sells for $35 US, though it can be found on sale for $25 US from time to time…

It’s… silly really. I don’t care for the horns, the hat is well over the top and I will admit it makes me laugh. But it’s not really sexy, nor does it stand out all that much. I’m not sure really what to do with it or what could make it better than it is.

Two pitchforks out of five.

It amuses me, that’s really the only reason it’s not getting a zero.

A Review of Don’t Ask, Just Take by K.C. Kane

Don't Ask, Just Take by K.C. Kane

Don’t Ask, Just Take by K.C. Kane

There are some stories that I can’t quite get deeply into. Sometimes that’s the characters, other times it’s the story.

But more often than not it’s a question of my view of how submissives should be treated and seeing something occur that just doesn’t sit well. It may be the character’s need, it may be what they desire, but even so, there’s just no heat when that happens for me.

The work tells of:

A man by the name of Eddie Winters is trying his best to eek out a lower class living. One night, he makes a mistake that leads to chain of odd events. Shadowy figures in the corner of his eye, strange nightmares, faces where faces shouldn’t be . . . all act to bring him face to face with his inner demons, an actual demon, and a horrible choice.

Landon discovers an odd creature on his way home and soon finds that it’s a succubus and he’s willing to fulfil Landon’s erotic fantasy. But that means letting go, letting the succubus take control of everything, and finding out if what Landon desires is what he really wants.

The work is a m/m focused piece of BDSM erotica with a very dark tone overall. The lead up to the erotica is really interesting and I would have liked to know more about the succubus of the work, Eli, as there really isn’t much told about him.

Eli’s character as a succubus runs hot and cold, his personality changing to meet Landon’s needs. That fits the story well and it does allow Eli to give Landon what he desires. But the erotica itself is harsh, somewhat over the top and, at least for me, didn’t have a lot of heat. I understand why the story turns in the direction it does, how things develop, but overall it just didn’t sit right with my experiences as a Domme. I’m sure to some this work has heat and it will be what they desire, but it just didn’t have much for me.

The work could use another editing pass to clean up the dialogue and make it better. At times it’s flat, needing emotion, and doing so would have helped a lot. It also would be nice to tell more about Eli as well, there’s a lot of story that just doesn’t appear.

Three out of five pitchforks.

The story has its moments, but the erotica just didn’t work for me. I’d like there to be more depth in the story, more character development too. But otherwise the world building and story idea is delightful, it’s just a shame that the erotica wasn’t what I’d hoped for.

Warmth by TeraS

The third part of Regina’s story isn’t quite finished as yet, though it is close to being so. I hope to sort things out and continue next week. As for this week’s story on the Tale … It snowed last night, the first snow of the year for us. Perhaps that’s appropriate, considering last week’s story. Perhaps it’s a moment when the ebon-maned Monarch of the Realm finds …

Warmth
By TeraS

The first snows of winter came last night to the Realm.

The event began with a few light flakes of snow, scattered far from one another as they drifted from the skies above. They were the pathfinders for the season to come, marking the path from their beginnings among the clouds to their place of rest on the lands below. The winds tossed them about the Realm, some finding their perch on rooftops, hedgerows or similar places. Others passed land by and cast themselves onto the Lake of Fire, falling into the now-cooler waters with winter’s approach. Some very few alighted upon the eternally snowcapped mountain ranges of the domain, beginning the process of rejuvenation to maintain this landscape seen from afar.

Over time, the weather turned somewhat more present, the flakes giving way to swirling masses of powdered snow. The natural colours of the Realm began to be covered slowly by layer after layer of white blankets, serving to place the vibrant colours to rest for a time as winter’s colour took its place.

It was not long before the winds picked up once more, the heart of the first storm making itself known. The outside world faded into the new background of wind-swept plains of white. Snow piled about doorway and walkway, and roofs became covered by layer upon layer of white decoration.

And amidst winter making itself known, those in the Realm made warmth in their own ways … Within a red brick home, the walkway marked with hockey-themed topiary, a red-tailed Uncle and Auntie renewed their relationship over coffee and cake … finding the warmth in their family’s love. Inside a solitary cabin found at the end of a trail leading into the deepest woods known, a red-tailed knitter found warmth with a purple-tailed younger soul once more. On the other side of a specific fence, two soulmates enjoyed their mugs of cocoa, the warmth of being together brightly glowing. And, in a home built with love, two red-tailed Eternals curled up on their couch, watching their two young blue-tailed daughters playing board games in the glow of the fireplace, the warmth of love shared keeping the winter’s cold at bay.

Winter is but a season, with its own purpose and reason for being. Perhaps the very telling thing is the warmth of the Realm shared freely and to all …

A Review of Succubus by J.L. Stanford

Succubus by J.L. Stanford

Succubus by J.L. Stanford

One of the aspects of succubus stories that doesn’t appear often are those that focus on the metaphysical, the dream state, and the perception of reality.

In doing so such stories give something of a unique glimpse into the souls of the characters, but more so, what haunts them.

A man by the name of Eddie Winters is trying his best to eek out a lower class living. One night, he makes a mistake that leads to chain of odd events. Shadowy figures in the corner of his eye, strange nightmares, faces where faces shouldn’t be . . . all act to bring him face to face with his inner demons, an actual demon, and a horrible choice.

Eddie Winters leads a harsh life that builds barriers around him. An encounter leads to his past returning and the unleashing of a succubus intent on his soul. Whether or not he can find escape isn’t as important as if the succubus will ever leave him.

The work is a mixture of myth, mystery and self exploration that works well in telling the story. It’s very focused on that, there’s little time spent in events that aren’t core to the plot. It is a bit difficult to follow at some points, mainly in the grammar and word structure, and I found myself trying to piece together events and connect them to prior ones in the work. That’s not a bad thing. but it led to some confusion.

The succubus of the work, who is never named. is not the stereotypical evil sexual being but more of a ghost, a presence than anything else. She’s a primal force seeking something and as things unfold she’s more a horrific power to push Eddie onward.

The work needs another editing pass to clean things up somewhat. Again it’s the oddities of the writing style, the somewhat flat dialogue as well takes a lot away from the storytelling. I’d like some of the scenes to be clearer, to be more to the point. There’s moments that feel skimmed over and expanding on those would do a lot to make things better.

Three out of five pitchforks.

A very different sort of succubus story, it isn’t erotica and as such there’s something telling to be found. Perhaps the succubus isn’t as present as she might be, but she’s still a force to be reckoned with.

A Short Cute Succubus Speedpainting YouTube

Possibly one of the shortest YouTubes I’ve found this time on the Tale. It’s of a really cute succubus, who I think is just adorable…

In the event you cannot see this YouTube on the Tale, please try this link.

As always, in the event YouTube removes the video, here’s a screenshot of the completed artwork…

Amazing eyes, lovely expression and she’s just a wonderfully cute succubus character that I think is adorable…

A Review of Filling The Incubus by N W

Filling The Incubus by N W

Filling The Incubus by N W

A review today of a very short incubus work. Incubi exist in the dream world, they are shaped by it to be what they become for the souls they encounter.

But that leaves some room for interpretation and changes which can be unexpected as well. Then the question of what desire means brings something that cannot be ignored.

The work tells of:

An incubus gets more than he bargained for when he finds a lucid dreamer.

Sebastian has visited many souls in their dreams as an incubus. But there are those called lucid dreamers and tonight he will encounter Harold who will turn Sebastian’s world upside down.

The work is an extremely short m/m focused hot flash which doesn’t spend a lot of time in developing the story or characters more than what’s needed to get to the erotica. It’s a bit odd, the fetish is certainly unexpected, and overall it’s a rather unique fetish which is described.

But the story just doesn’t develop very far beyond the encounter and the fetish that’s explored. I’d have liked more time spent in telling the story, it’s very rushed and doesn’t really give any time for the story to breathe or tell more about the characters.

Two and a half out of five pitchforks.

It’s far too short a story, which is a shame. Perhaps the author will revisit this work and add to it. There’s something interesting here, but regrettably this is a pamphlet in length and that takes away too much.

Succubi Image of the Week 720

I’ve found that portraits of succubi characters often surprise me. There’s something in the look and expression that tells more about the character than what their overall look might. A work then this week on the Tale which expresses one particular character’s personality so very well…

Devil Chick by BABAGANOOSH99

Devil Chick by BABAGANOOSH99

This work is by the artist BABAGANOOSH99 on DeviantArt and you can find the original page with this art here.

Just an amazing work of art from the small details in her eyes to the textures in her hair. I think the colour palette works really well with her style and look as well.

More than anything else, her expression speaks volumes as to what her personality might be like. It’s delightfully mischievous but also there’s a sense of her being less than thrilled about something too.

Perhaps it’s the bad girl vibe she has, perhaps it’s just her overall look that brings that out. Nonetheless this is quite the telling work that holds a lot of personality.
