A wonderful Succubus Paper Artwork…

I discovered a piece of Succubus art that is, at least from the internet’s point of view, far in the past. Now while that is true and it is also true that the artist has vanished from the internet as far as I can see…

I like this a bunch and so I’m going to share what I found today on the Tale…

Succubus (Cut Paper) by Shannon Reinbold-Gee

Succubus (Cut Paper) by Shannon Reinbold-Gee

This art is called Succubus (Cut Paper) and is by the artist Shannon Reinbold-Gee. It’s made by taking pieces of paper and cutting them into various shapes which are then layered on top of each other to create the image you see here…

I found it originally here, and you can also see an artist’s page with other cut paper works by this artist at the same site here as well.

I have never seen art like this before and it’s fascinating to me. Not just in what it looks like, but how precise every cut has to be in order to create this work.

Now I wish that the Succubus had horns and a tail, but she does have wings and stylistically she has the look of a Succubus regardless of what’s missing in her form…

I should note that this art was created back in 2003 by this artist and is, as far as I can see, the only work she has done of a Succubus although she has created other fantasy arts that can be found in her gallery I linked to earlier…

Do have a look!

Succubi Image of the Week 184

I found a rather interesting stylized Succubus this week to share on the Tale. It’s another one of those images that I don’t have any idea of who the artist is, but I think that it’s a really delicious bit of Succubus art…

Succubus by Unknown Artist

I think that this is interesting in a couple of ways. First that her horns aren’t quite horns really as they sort of look like something that the Greek god Mercury would have on his head. The wings are interesting in that she seems to have only half a pair, perhaps she’s making them vanish at this moment?

It’s also an odd shape to her tail, not quite a spade or heart shaped one really. It’s also interesting that her clothing, at least her boots, aren’t the same… almost makes me wonder if she is a succubus pirate or something…

That would be an interesting story idea wouldn’t it?

As always, any details on this work would be appreciated in the comments!

It might be a Devil Dame but it isn’t a Succubus…

It’s a shame when you find a Succubus costume that could have been something decent, but it really doesn’t make the effort to be…

This is an example of that.

Devil Dame CostumeIt’s called the Devil Dame costume and sells for about $60 US at various places on the web including Amazon.com.

It comes with the dress, choker and glovettes, but the horns are not included with it, nor are the shoes.

Wouldn’t you think that a costume for a devil or a Succubus would have the horns included with it?

To me, the word “dame” means at least a small amount of class needs to be seen and I can’t really see that in this costume. Would it be so difficult yo make the hem of the dress look decent?

The glovettes aren’t bad and I have to admit I kind of like them, but what’s the point of buying this costume to throw away the rest of it away?

I’m also not thrilled by the choker and the attached fringe that appears from it. I don’t understand what that has to do with this being a Succubus costume.

It’s another example of trashy being confused with Devilish or Succubish.

And it really doesn’t make it I think.

Giving this a quarter pitchfork out of five.

Keep the glovettes, lose the rest.

Temptations 119

Sometimes you can open doors to places you thought you would never see again… Sometimes…

_________________

Temptations 119

By TeraS and James

It wasn’t actually that hard for her to imagine the place he described… She knew it well… Known it for so long that the scent of the pine needles that was pushed by the light winds that came from the lake would have made her sure that she was there…

But they both weren’t… At least not quite yet… And she found that somewhat disappointing for a very short moment in time…

“I… think… You pay your own abilities not enough heed my dear…” She had not pulled her hands from his, nor did she want to at that moment. It was comfortable here with him and, in truth, why would one pass something as that up?

A tilt of her head to the left, “The place is quite real… But, and this I know truly, few, if any have seen it nor know of it… That should be added to I think…”

A soft breeze passed over the table around and between them and, as he watched, the library shimmered away to be replaced by the green of a forest, the sound of water lapping in the distance and all that he had described save for one thing that wasn’t…

No, all was as he had imagined it, but for the table they still sat at, the sun gleaming off the surface. She explained softly, still holding his hands, “Passage requires belief, and yours is strong and free… It also requires an open mind and a willing heart to see…”

The smile, as always, was warm, “And the trust to see what is rather than what is not…”

With that, she brushed her hair about a little and revealed two small red horns in her raven hair to him with the words, “Trust given should be shared should it not?”

 

“Yes, it should be,” James replied, “and you are trusting me with a very precious thing.  I will do my best to be worthy of that trust.”

Her smile made his own warm and grow.  “This place is known to you?  It is a place I’ve imagined all my life, and use the image, which I have learned to make quite real, to relax myself.  But, for all that I have imagined this place, I have never imagined anybody quite like you there.”

At the moment, holding her hands seemed like the most natural thing in the world.  While he was sure he had never met her, her smile and her eyes felt most familiar, and there was a connection that seemed brand new, and yet older than both of them.

“I would really like to know more about you, and maybe I can help you somehow.  Maybe we can begin with a tour.” He stood, inviting her along: “Would you be good enough to take me on a tour, and tell me a bit about what this place is for you?  I can tell from your eyes that it means quite a bit.”

It would be nice to have more trust in the world… it does mean the world you know…

Priscilla and the Genie

Storm Clouds will not be appearing this week, it will return I hope next week with something added to the story, assuming my Tail allows me to write something by then…

But in its place, I am going to share this story of the Succubi by the Realm’s Poet Laureate and the Queen’s heart in which a Succubi learns a valuable lesson…

____________________________

Priscilla and the Genie by James

Just a little flash, but something special today, inspired by this picture from the Gallery of the Succubi:

One
night in
the Realm’s
treasure room,
Priscilla the
purple tail discovered a
most unusual bottle.
She pulled out this
multi-colored
ceramic item,
she admired
its beauty,
and then she
began to rub
the lovely
multi-colored
pottery and
pulled out the
cork. Wisps
of smoke came
out, and soon
clouds of smoke
surrounded her.
The next thing
she knew, a genie
stood before her,
exquisite with his
tan skin and broad
shoulders. He saw
her horns and tail
and grumbled: “No
demon creature can
be my master!” “That
would be succubi,” Priscilla
purred, “and I am your Mistress.
I want my wishes.” Grudgingly the
creature from the bottle said, “Very well.
Three wishes shall be yours.” “No, not three.
For insulting me with the name ‘demon,’ I demand
one thousand wishes.” The wily genie smiled: “If you can
seduce me before I bring you to your knees in ecstasy, then you shall
have your wishes. Otherwise, you will pleasure me in my bottle for seven
centuries.” Before Priscilla could peep, her opponent had caught her in his
beguiling stare. She felt her knees begin to weaken, her own green eyes locked
into his dark orbs, she noticed how delicious his body was, and was just beginning
to buckle when he was enticed, then overwhelmed with the fragrance of lilacs. His
gaze broken, he began to stagger toward her, kissing her outstretched hand. The imp
was not yet done, however. Even as she began to plant unending desire in his mind,
a moan, slipped through her own lips; three impossibly beautiful, achingly sensual,
naughtily naked women were massaging her sinewy purple tail. The final thoughts
of her lucid mind were that, somehow, the genie’d rummaged around in there and
discovered her most erogenous zones. By the time that thought had formed, the
blonde was licking her nether lips under her short skirt while a brunette kissed
her tight round, ass, and the other brunette reached into her titian hair to rub
her horns. She needed release . . . the genie would give it to her . . . and
she would be trapped. “Harold, behave yourself!” Priscilla glanced up,
and there was Tail, Queen Tera’s tail-self. “You still have seven cen-
turies before you get out!” “But she rubbed the bottle!” the genie
whined before Tail snapped her fingers and he faded into smoke.
“How did you do that?” Priscilla wondered aloud. “Who do you
think put him there in the first place, dear?” Tail smiled.
“Now let this be a lesson: never, ever open a bottle unless
you know what is inside . . . And always watch where you rub.”

A Review of Dream Seductions: Ethan by Celeste Hall

I discovered an interesting book that was the beginning of a series on Amazon recently. This book and the following stories are part of a universe where Succubi and Incubi exist along with other beings like vampires, but they are slightly different than what is the traditional view of them all…

Dream Seductions: Ethan by Celeste Hall

Dream Seductions: Ethan by Celeste Hall

 

The book blurb describes the story as:

Be careful what you dream…

Ethan knows that his entire race hovers on the brink of extinction. Strict laws that have protected their species are now being challenged. Laws created to prevent demons and humans from consorting outside of the Dream. But there is something about Madison that draws him – despite the consequences.

Madison Gray was hired to do a job, but all she can think about are the erotic dreams she keeps having about her new employer. To make matters worse, he keeps looking at her as if he knows exactly what she’s considering.

The book was originally published by Ellora’s Cave Publishing under the pseudonym Aevyn Brooke by this author, and I have to assume that the rights to the book have reverted to her and she is reissuing the series under her own name through Amazon and their Kindle publishing systen.

There are other two stories in the series, Dream Seductions: Kye and Dream Seductions: Rico. Kye was released on Amazon.com recently and I will be reviewing that book, and the last of the series when it is released as well…

To the story then.

Madison Gray is a woman looking for love. The same love that she saw her parents have, but she has only been disappointed and devastated by the men she has met in her past. Save one. She met Ethan Cox (yes I know the double entendre in that name thank you) a long time ago and since that first meeting he’s been in her dreams. But she knows full well that being a plain woman means that she has no chance with him and resigns herself to enjoying her dreams as much as she can.

Ethan we discover is an Incubus. While his human form is very much the stuff of fantasy, his incubus form is, as you might expect, slightly demonic in nature. He is alone in this world having been pushed out of his covey for killing a vampire in the past.

There is an ongoing battle between vampires and incubi and succubi in which the vampires do not want them to exist. As a result they search them out and have been killing them one by one. As a result of this, there are few succubi left in the world and they are becoming fewer still.

The powers of the incubi and succubi are centred upon feeding on human beings, but on their sexual emotions and energies. They do not kill humans because negative emotions drain them and cause them pain over time.

The story revolves around Ethan trying to resist his urges and at the same time have Madison trust him, but as that slowly moves forwards, Ethan’s past comes to haunt him, threaten Madison, and might result in the deaths of the covey he still has a connection to.

I liked the story overall. The writing was clear and neat, the story was engrossing and the background of the Succubi and Incubi in the story I thought made a lot of sense and in doing so, made the story more “real.”

From what I have seen of the other two books in the series, they deal with the other two incubi that, at the time of this story, are still alive in Ethan’s covey.

Which brings me the characters in the story…

Ethan was, I thought, well written and played in the story. He wasn’t over the top, he had his own doubts and fears, but when he made a decision, he kept to it which I think made him a being with a sense of honour. Something that isn’t seen enough in stories like this when Incubi appear.

Madison had a lot of internal monologuing in the story which while explaining why she was the was she was, didn’t push the story ahead all of the time. I wonder if the time spent going over the same flaws and fears in her character wouldn’t have been better served in expanding the universe a bit further than it was.

The two other Incubi in the series, Kye and Rico, honestly were not fleshed out as well as Ethan was. Now that is understandable because they were secondary characters, but I would have liked to know more about them and their covey than was revealed.

And that brings us to Ayleth, the Succubus of the story. I have a problem with her being described as having porcelain white skin, it always makes me think of vampires, which she isn’t, but otherwise the red hair, attitude and her succubus form, when we see it, I think are a good match otherwise for a succubus. Her attitude, as flighty as it is at times, is a bit much. However, the realization of the situation they are all in, and what her fears are, make that impossible to avoid in the story.

So, overall I liked the story, do want to read the other books in the series and I am hoping that it is not too long before they become available as well.

I’m giving this book four and a half pitchforks out of five.

I would have liked more about the origins of the succubi and incubi, I would have liked to see Ayleth using her powers at some point in the story, and I would have liked to have a bit more on the hierarchy of the race itself…

I mean, nine incubi for one succubus?

Oh my.

A Demoness Drawing YouTube…

I found a really talented artist’s drawing of a Demoness or Succubus if you prefer on YouTube this past week and so…

If you can’t see it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxUBuGymtP0

And a still from the video of the completed work which is, really well done I think…

 

Demoness by MrCheezful

Demoness by MrCheezful

The artist is named Mr. Cheezful, who is from Romania, and you can find their page on YouTube here which shows off many of their other artworks they have shared…

While she lacks a tail, she does have an interesting set of horns and wings that do show off her qualities as a Succubus. I think the tones in her skin are really interesting and help define her form very well. Her eyes being yellow is a bit of a departure from the usual, but works here well and the magic rising from her hands is a nice bit of action instead of having a simple pose in which she is doing nothing really…

Very nice and I do hope that this artist does some more Succubi or DeVil Girls soon…
