Just Thinking by TeraS

Today should have been part two of Succubi Anonymous. However there are other things on my mind this part week and especially today that… honestly I haven’t been able to think or write much of anything.

With hope and luck things will be okay and it will be better.






Just Thinking
By TeraS


He wasn’t at home.

She looked in his study—well, on the plans for their house it was called a study, but she knew better than that. It was where he piled up the bits and pieces of the hobby that he loved. This is where she was; she wanted to ask him a question, but all that she found was the room.

She stood there at the doorway and looked at the moments that were reflected in the memorabilia that she saw there. She recalled the moments he had told her about that he had seen in the time before they met. She smiled as she looked at this piece or that thing that, for him, meant something and always would.

Her eyes fell upon a charred piece of metal that sat on a shelf, and her smile wavered slightly. She remembered that day vividly. The call she answered when he said that he was alright and that she shouldn’t worry when she saw the report on the news that evening. She made him promise that, if he ever did anything like that again, he would call before he did so. He would—as he did from that day onwards—call her and make a simple promise to her, and then he would be on his way to whatever it was and she would be on her way to whatever she needed to do, waiting for him to call afterwards to say that everything was fine.

But he wasn’t at home.

She closed her eyes and thought about where he could be. After a while she turned away from his, and her own, memories. He wasn’t hurt—she knew that much—but he wasn’t home. Coming to a decision, she found her long, red jacket and made her way out the front door into their world. She paused by the fence and asked her heart if he had seen him, but he answered that, while he had seen him and they had talked, he didn’t say where he was going … but her heart knew that he was troubled and worried.

As she was.

Of course, this friend by the fence knew that she was troubled and worried as well, and offered to help her to find him. She hugged her heart, told him not to worry, and then, with a smile, she walked down the cobblestone path, past the hedges and began to look for him in the places she thought he might be.

She passed by the library, but Miriam had not seen him. Miriam also offered to help find him, but a smile and a thank you for asking were her reply, and she continued on herself.

This was something that only she herself could do really.

She visited with Cassiopeia, who hadn’t seen him, either, and who also offered to help. She thanked her, smiled, and continued to look for him alone.

VVrayven hadn’t seen him, but offered to help as well. Again, there was that smile, a thank you, and she continued to look … alone.

Alei repeated the same conversation. She smiled, shared a hug, but gently said thank you and carried on to find him on her own.

It was when she had, eventually, come to the cliffs overlooking the Sea of Fire that she found him there. She stopped a short distance away and watched as he stared off into space. Britty, their dog leaned against him, and he scratched one of her ears, silently. She moved towards him, the sound of her footsteps in the grass and leaves beneath her marking her approach. But he didn’t turn to look at her.
Of course he knew that she was there. He always did. She stopped a tail’s length away from him: “Hi.”

He ran a hand through his hair and replied: “Hi.”

“What are you doing?”

He didn’t say anything for a moment, then: “Just … thinking.”

She then moved to sit on the other side of him, leaned against him, and wrapped an arm around him. Neither of them said anything for a while, then she said: “He will be fine.”

He sighed: “I know.”

She took hold of his right hand, and said: “No. He will be fine.”

He turned to look at her: “I know. It doesn’t make it any easier.”

She looked at him: “I know.”

He smiled, slightly: “I heard once that the darkest time comes before the dawn.”

She looked off into the distance and saw that the sun was setting off on the horizon, the first licks of flame shooting away from where it seemed to be touching the lake.

“Is that why you are here?”

“No. The view just is. The saying is just something that came to mind.”

“You know it is true.”

“What is?”

“That saying.”

He wrapped an arm around her waist as his tail twined with hers: “I know. Just … sometimes, it’s hard to believe it.”

As the sun set and the skies darkened, she rested her head against his shoulder: “I know.”

And now, even there, they were at home …

And what the morning brought, whatever it was, they would face it together …

A Review of Dreams in Red: Part One by Lilith Li

Dreams in Red: Part One by Lilith Li

Dreams in Red: Part One by Lilith Li

One of the things that authors need to do, I think at least, is have a summary of their work that catches the interest of others. Another is they should have someone editing their work to pick up on spelling mistakes and other such things.

Those two points are really quite important when one thinks about them. The summary of this work is… lacking to put it mildly. A single sentence isn’t nearly enough. As for the editing? Well, little mistakes that drive me out of a story do bother me.

  • Title: Dreams in Red: Part One
  • Author: Lilith Li
  • Length: 17 Pages
  • Format: eBook
  • ASIN: B00F75M00Q
  • Publishing Date: September 13, 2013
  • This work at

The work tells about:

Gwen dreams of a creature with red eyes.

Being that the summary is, in my opinion, lacking, here’s what I think is a better one:

Gwen’s nights are taken by dreams of an Incubus who desires her. His need for her slowly takes over and she cannot escape him even in her waking hours. And when her dreams touch her reality, things… change.

Gwen’s dreams are of being bound and controlled by someone she cannot see. But the touch, the feeling alone are more than enough for her dreams to be very vivid and stay in her mind once she awakens. Her thoughts wander during the day, resulting in some rather embarrassing moments from time to time. But it is her dreams that take hold of her… quite literally.

There is, for lack of a better explanation, an Incubus haunting Gwen, one that seemingly knows what she desires. The moments of the real world pale in comparison to the moments in dreams where Gwen is powerless to resist the Incubus and what it wishes to do to her.

As the story progresses the heat builds until the climax of the story and a discovery that Gwen could have never expected. I hope, truly, that the author continues the story using the characters they placed in this work and not made a new path for the series to follow when, or if, it should ever appear.

There are quite a number of open ended questions by the end of this work, some of which I think might be red herrings, but nonetheless I would like to know whether my thoughts about the work are correct or not. That will require a second, or more, parts to find out.

The thing is that I find the real world moments… boring. By that I mean that while Gwen seems alive in them, the others around her are… cardboard. By that I mean there is the attempt at a connection, but it doesn’t feel right or work right for me at least. The erotic moments are nicely hot and the descriptions are lovely, but there is only so much sex I can deal with before I wonder about having some story again. In this work there is a lot more sex than story. I’d like to see that to be equal or if not equal then at least give the people around Gwen more than they seem to be.

Oddly, the real world seems more like a dream than the dream world is… Perhaps that is a clue? It’s something to think about at least…

I’m giving this work two and a half out of five pitchforks.

Will I read the next work in the series when it comes out? I’m of two minds honestly… I would like to see where the author is going with this story. But I would like more story with my erotica please?

A cute cartoony Morrigan Aensland YouTube…

It’s nice to see images of Morrigan Aensland that are fun and a little bit cartoony… I found a YouTube of an artist creating such a work recently. Now, I like the art, but the hyperactive camera work is a bit concerning… Still, it really makes Morrigan look so very cute and fun… Besides glasses on Succubi make them look sexier…

And if you cannot see this video on the Tale:

Lastly, a screenshot of the art, complete with sexy cute glasses for Morrigan…

Morrigan vby HentaiDrawBoom

The artist of this art is called Hentai DrawBoom and they have quite a number of this kind of art creation videos on YouTube. While Morrigan is, slightly, over-endowed here, I really do like the touch of her wearing glasses and peering over them…

Because sexy cute is the best kind of cute isn’t it?

A Review of The Other Side of the Desert by Jessica L. Murray

The Other Side of the Desert by Jessica L. Murray

The Other Side of the Desert by Jessica L. Murray

A review of an interesting story about Lilith, her legend and the power that stories have this time. I don’t find a lot of stories that tell a story about Lilith in a way that isn’t stereotypical. Perhaps that is the one thing that many writers forget. Their words so have power and as such you really should make the most of them. In this case, this is a story that takes the myths of Lilith and adds another layer to them which makes the original story seem… lacking… in a way…

The work tells the story of:

An elderly priest on his deathbed with a dark confession entangles his young protege in his tale of a dark, mysterious woman. And a promise.

Father Robert is a legend to a young scholar just out of seminary. So Tom is delighted when he is placed there under Father Robert’s tutelage. However, Father Robert is not well. On his deathbed he requests Tom to be by his side. He has a tale to tell. A story so far-fetched it couldn’t possibly be true. The story of Father Robert’s meetings with the real-life Lilith, and hearing her side of the story of Creation, Adam, and a dark, disturbing secret that did not make it into the Bible. As Tom grapples with the imminent demise of his mentor, he must also ask himself who Father Robert really is. And why he chose Tom to reveal his secrets to.

The myth of Lilith is a well known one I think and this story takes that and turns it towards a different explanation. The story is set at the death bed of Father Robert, but it isn’t so much about him, or the young man that listens to his story, or even that of the sister that looks after the Father’s needs.

They are part of the story yes, but they aren’t the core of the story for the most part. The core of the story is the telling of what is said to be the true story of Lilith as Father Robert heard it from Lilith herself. That telling is detailed, emotional, and becomes more real than the rest of the story.

And that is where the point of the story isn’t comes into play. The story mentions one important point. Stories, the telling of them, the sharing of them, and the life in them, matters. It does to Lilith herself and the difference from the beginning of the story when she first appears to the last moment in the story is a dramatic one and that ties nicely into what Father Robert did as a result of meeting her.

I found it, through the course of Lilith telling her story, quite a different take on the story of Adam and Lilith, Lilith and her fate, and Adman, Eve and the end of the Garden of Eden. The author told a story that was captivating and strong in many ways. The trials that Lilith faces, her actions, and in the end, her transformation are all moments where they can be pictured easily in your mind and that is the mark of an excellent writer.

Nothing in the work took me out of the story and that again, marks this as a story well told and well done. the only issue I really have with it is that for the length of it, the subjects touched in it, and the events in it, there is something missing. A resolution to the climax of the story.

The promise given in that moment, for Father Robert, for Tom and most of all, for Lilith wasn’t taken to a conclusion and I have to wonder if the author intended for the story to continue in some way, but never managed to do so.

The questions left really would make for another telling story…

I’ll give this work four and a half pitchforks out of five.

A bit short, the ending left a lot of questions that I would have liked to have answers for. Well written and well worth reading for a different perspective on Lilith and her mythos…

Succubi Image of the Week 322

Two weeks of Succubi with hooves for the Succubi of the week… That’s something unique I think if I remember that correctly. Why this particular image? Well, if I ignore the hooves she does make me think of an interesting story which isn’t a bad thing… and the story behind her is interesting as well…

Misty Commission by Curlyhair

Misty Commission by Curlyhair

This image was a commission of an artist called Curlyhair on DeviantArt. You can find this artist’s page here and the page I found this work is here on DeviantArt.

The short version of the story behind Misty is that she is a cheerleader in a school and took a book of magic which then transformed her into a Succubus. It also warped her mind so that she has always, at least in her mind, looked like this as well.

The artist really has brought out the personality in this character, which before her change was a bit on the manipulative side. You can see it in her pose and expression and I would also say in her eyes in spite of them being not really visible. She has kind of a menacing air about her which for her more devilish look makes sense and looks right for her.

I’m not sure that her clothing being torn up is the best way of drawing her, but then I am picky about how Succubi appear. As always, I am not too thrilled by her hooves, though again she is more of an “evil” Succubus so that does kind of have to happen in a way…

But then my thoughts turn to how could I write a story about something, or someone, like this…

Maybe I will…

So if this is a Demon Costume where are the horns?

Woman's Demon CostumeIt is starting to become something of a habit in advertising I think where they call a costume devil or demon in some way in order to sell it. That’s not a problem really, but, when a costume is defined as such wouldn’t it be a great idea to actually have some horns at least with the costume?

In this case, that didn’t happen. Not that it would help this costume at all really but still… This is called the Woman’s Demon Costume and it comes with… well. again this is an example of a costume with no details at all about it, and that’s becoming a problem too I think. I can say that this sells for $55 US however.

I’ll guess that the boots are not included, which is a shame really because I do like them, but all else is and that means that horrid bat on the front of the skirt comes with this costume.

This is, really, a vampire costume, but of course the description of this disaster I think was designed to direct google hits to it.

I wouldn’t buy this less wear it. Vampiric Succubi do not do anything for me. This costume does nothing for me. Even adding a pair of horns to this and removing that awful bat on the skirt can’t help this to be better in anyway.

Zero pitchforks out of five.

I know this isn’t a Succubus costume, or a devil one for that matter. I just wanted to note the lengths to which some retailers go to sell something this bad…

A Review of I, Succubus by Lara Waters

I, Succubus by Lara Waters

I, Succubus by Lara Waters

It is interesting to me the concepts of what a Succubus is that authors decide on. More, it is how that existence is explained, or used, to drive the story forwards which can either make or break a story.

The problem for me comes in when the explanation of what happens in the story, how the Succubus comes to be isn’t explained or alluded to enough. To simply have her “do something Succubus-like” isn’t going to really do a lot for me. It’s quite a bit worse when, given that the story ends on a cliffhanger, and is advertised as the beginning of a series, that it does not continue and the questions are not answered.

  • Title: I, Succubus
  • Author: Lara Waters
  • Length: 15 Pages
  • ASIN: B00CBY33Y8
  • Publishing Date: April 11, 2013
  • This work at


The work tells of:

A new paranormal erotica is born! Welcome to the tale of I, Succubus – a dark, lusty and comic tale of what happens when a girl discovers more about her sexual appetites then she perhaps wants…

Evelyn is a Succubus, calling herself one of the “Others”, those that are not quite human that exist within the human world. One a month her Succubus takes over and she needs to take the life of another to calm the being within her and continue on. Meeting another in the streets of Stockholm in her moment of need, she takes them and what she is comes to the fore.

The most interesting thing about this work is that Evelyn seems to be two beings within one body. There is a distinct personality shift between the two and it’s interesting to watch Evelyn shift from being concerned about the other to not caring about them. There is a touch of evil in her Succubus self that drives the story towards erotica and while that is done well, I have a problem with it.

How Evelyn as a Succubus takes the other isn’t exactly clear and it seems a bit scattered and an afterthought really when that moment occurs. That’s not to say the erotica isn’t well written, for it is, but rather that the ending was not satisfying because it just… happened. And there the story comes to an end.

The other thing is that the way this work is summarized, I was expecting to find a second part to this work. To discover more about Evelyn, about her world, about all that has happened to her. But there isn’t, at least not to the date of this review at least.

What little there is told about her past, the vagueness of how things progress for her, the questions that I was left with at the end of the story all led to asking… why? Why couldn’t the work be a little bit longer? Why couldn’t the story tell more about Evelyn herself? About the “Others” she refers to? There just seemed to be a lot more that could have been covered in the story to make it better rounded and more interesting than simply some erotica that had a touch of horror within it.

Two and a half out of five pitchforks.

An interesting idea that left me wanting. Too much unexplained or happening that isn’t embellished upon. If there was a second work I think all of this would be better explained, but to this review, that didn’t happen…
