Storm Clouds XXXIX

Storm Clouds

Chapter 10

By TeraS

Tom leaned against a tree watching Brent playing with his children next to a small fountain. He had a puzzled expression on his face at what the fountain was supposed to mean. After all, you wouldn’t expect an angel motif in a place that didn’t seem to have a lot of angel looking beings in it.

Camilla came around from behind the fountain carrying a small box in her hands. When she came close to Tom, she asked him if he had eaten anything. When he didn’t answer, she simply put a wrapped sandwich in his hands and with a nod of her head directed him to have a seat at a picnic table nearby.

After getting settled, Tom watched as she began to pick at a salad. He unwrapped the sandwich as he asked, “Something bothering you?”

She paused and then began, “What bothers me Thomas is that I have lost a Sister. I suffer for that. But that’s nothing compared to Brent and his children.”

Tom picked out a slice of tomato, “How bad is it for Brent?”

She poked the fork into the salad with some force, “If he didn’t have the children I am sure that he would…. be no more.”

Tom considered that as he took a bite, “He’s still here. So are the kids. And you. He doesn’t strike me as the type to put a bullet to his head and end it all. Sorry Camilla, I’m not going to dwell on that.”

“Heartless aren’t you?”

Tom reached into a pocket of his jacket and tossed a small notebook between them, “Haven’t the time. Brent gave me a list of people that had something against him. I can look into the people. You game to grill the ones that aren’t?”

She turned the notebook around and opened the cover. After a moment she whistled, “I would not have guessed at any of these.”

Tom wiped his lips with a napkin, “How bad are the names you recognize? The ones I do are lousy, but I can take most of them from the list. I’m looking for a killer and most of them are playboys, playtoys and thrill seekers. They don’t qualify.”

Another bite, “Three of them I’ll have to grill.”

She considered him, “At least your list is a short one. From this side I can see ten times that of creatures and things that would have loved to be the one that did this…”

Tom shook his head, “Not love Camilla. Need.”

She started back at the beginning of the list again, her fingers tracing down the names. Then she said, “Two that we can get to. One that I would not touch with a ten foot pole and an army of hellhounds behind me.”

Arching an eyebrow he asked, “That bad?”

She shrugged, “Worse. We’ll need help to see that one.”

Tom considered his sandwich, “You know something? I am more inclined to believe that the one that did this is on your turf than mine.”

Raising her fork she explained, “It can be that someone, as you say, on our turf started this, but you don’t understand how things work in your world. You see Thomas, while some creatures like us can exist there and interact with your people, there are so many more that need an anchor, something or someone to believe in them and give them purchase in your world. Without that they can’t do anything physically.”

Confused, Tom just nodded for her to continue.

“Magic is thin in your world now. Creatures that once thrived in your world now can’t be there. Oh they can look in, try to whisper thoughts and ideas into people’s minds and see what happens, but without someone that believes, like a wizard, mage or witch… They can’t actually do anything there.”

“Then how do you all manage to be there?”

She smiled, “Sex is a powerful thing. Love more so. If you are intimately connected with both of those… Crossing over isn’t a hard thing to do.”

He nodded slowly, “Base desires and overwhelming needs are the gateway to the soul or something?”

“Or something.”

They were quiet for a time until Tom asked, “I need to get back. Get on and see those names. Can you check your list and…”

She shook her head, “No. You are stuck with me for the moment Thomas. You can do your investigating there and then we’ll both see what happens.”

He frowned, “You are telling me that I am going to have to go with you to see what you are afraid of seeing?”

“Afraid doesn’t mean that I will not go there. But here’s the thing. You are a detective. You know how to ask questions and moreover see more than I do. I think that you asking the questions of them will get us further than I can alone. Besides which, you have one power over them that I don’t.”

Tom looked shocked, “Power? I got nothing.”

A small shake of her head, “You have free will. You have the ability to choose. Most of the creatures we will have to see do not have that luxury. They are connected to other beings in ways that make them what they are. You however, you don’t have that flaw.”

He sighed, “No I have the flaw that I have to do the right thing.”

She munched on her salad, “It’s not a flaw. It’s a gift.”

Need some tail? I have one for you…

Okay, I admit the title of this article is a play on words, but when I saw this I couldn’t help myself…

For those of you that want a tail, and are brave enough or kinky enough…

Here’s your tail…

For those of you that haven’t a clue what this is, this is a… well… Devil’s Tail Butt Plug…

Now I have seen pony tails, cat tails, bunny tails and of course the generic and not so generic butt plugs, but this is, as far as I can remember, the first Devil Tail plug that I have ever seen…

It is described as coming only in red, and is about nine inches in length. The tail itself, the part that sticks out, is five inches long… Actually to me that’s kind of short for a Succubi tail, but I suppose that’s mostly to make it easier for you to manage to keep in place…

The interesting thing to me is that, this is the only such tail I can find on the internet…

Which really is a surprise to me…

I mean considering the popularity of the other tails in the fetish world, and the number of girls that I have seen looking like devils and Succubi, I would think that there would be a decent market for this and more companies would make it…

In any case, this is out there in various adult stores for about $25 USD in general, though some of them come with other items like horns, latex gloves and so on and are a bit more expensive…

*looks innocent*

A YouTube of drawing Morrigan…

I’ve always been amazed by the drawing talents that appear on the internet. Some of them are the artist’s own creations, and, of course, some are their interpretations of other artist’s works and characters…

One of the most popular is of course Morrigan Aensland of Darkstalkers fame…

And in case the embedding doesn’t work:


This is one of a series of videos that this artist has put on YouTube showing his methods of drawing different characters, and he has a site as well that gives lessons.

You can find that site here.

The finished results that he shows on his site are really wonderful…

Another Lilith-based movie to avoid…

It seems to me that, for reasons only known to the movie makers, that legends need to be altered in order to play on the current “hot things” in the movie world. Of course that points at the idea of making money I think, but that’s not always the case.

Coming later this year is a movie called Umbrage, which is, as is the current hot thing, a vampire movie. But in this case they are adding Lilith to the mix.

According to the information available on the internet so far on this movie. this film is summarized as:

“In the Old West, the assassination of an ageing cowboy is thwarted by a sultry vampiress, the would-be killer left for dead in the dust… A hundred years later an ancient obsidian mirror, long unearthed from the Mesopotamian desert, is liberated from an American collector’s vault and illegally transported to Europe.

Jacob, an unscrupulous antiques dealer, moves to a remote farmhouse with his pregnant young wife, Lauren, and his difficult ward, Rachel. His goals are clear: to pass this near-priceless mirror to the highest bidder, and to prevent these two women from ripping each other apart. Nearby, a beautiful ornithologist, in nocturnal pursuit of the Screech Owl, is disturbed in her hide by a couple of noisy hikers. Her efforts ruined, she joins them by their campfire, but when one of them is mysteriously mutilated in the woods, she and the other are forced to flee and seek refuge at Jacob’s farm.

Something has been unleashed into the dark of that night…. Shadows take on a life of their own, and the blood begins to flow. Maybe it’s all down to the ominous cowboy hiding in the barn who doesn’t seem to cast any reflection in the dark mirror.

Maybe it’s because the shiny black artefact is the enchanted talisman and portal of Lilith, the wilful first wife of Adam, exiled from Eden to spawn her demonic offspring.

The family find themselves in the middle of a century old grudge between a vengeful undead cowboy and the re-awakened Lilith, mother to the Succubi, ruler of shadows, slaughterer of children, and consort to the devil himself.

Sometimes the only weapon against evil is evil itself…”

I have so so so many issues with this plot outline with regards to Lilith, the primary one, and I have the worst feeling from, the trailer and this outline seems to reflect, is that Lilith will be a vampire, or act like one, and not be a Succubus.

I am going to see this, I have connections in the UK so I will see it somehow, but going in, I really worry.

What is Lilith going to look like? Is she actually going to be a succubus or just the usual train wreck of a gorefest that seems to be the only way movies can show her? Is there the possibility that she will be shown as she is in the legends or will she be once again just a poor reflection of the powerful being she really is?

We’ll see…

I’m hoping but not that confident…

You can find a trailer for this movie here.

And the official website is here, but was not complete at the time of this article’s entry in the Tale.

I’ll be watching…

Succubi Image of the Week 110

I was looking through some Succubus artwork that we have from years ago when I came across this one, and since I was looking for a cute Succubus this week, she gets the honour…

This is another one of those images that I have no information on. I don’t know who created this, I don’t know if this is an actual character in an anime series or not, popular or not, I don’t recognize her at least…

I know that we added this image to our collection of Succubi in May of 2006, which probably isn’t a good idea of when it first appeared, but it’s as close as I can get…

I love the little pumpkin she’s holding, it makes me wonder if that’s a spell she is going to cast on someone or something similar as that happens a lot in anime…

The wings and tail that she has are really nicely matched to her overall looks and playful attitude I think. She’s not, i think, actually evil but is rather more a kind of playfully naughty being…

As always, if anyone has an idea of the artist, please comment?

Edit: A reader of the Tale as indicated that this is called Holloween cChain by a Japanese attest called Bome.

Thank you for sharing the info!

Succubus Costume Desperation?

I think that this is becoming a theme isn’t it? I haven’t come across a decent, at least to me, Succubus costume for a long long time…

This one isn’t a good one either…

I really think this is tacky beyond words, but this is what you get with this costume in the package. The horns, wings, top and skirt and the rather flimsy tail are included. The boots as shown here are not part of the package when it arrives.

The wings are attached by straps over your shoulders and under your arms, which isn’t a good idea because the longer you wear it the more chafing happens. The top is, regrettably, not well constructed as the zipper doesn’t take a lot of abuse before it begins to separate and you have to either pin it or tape it in place. The tail is attached to the skirt, but the slightest tug on it will pull it away easily. I’d suggest that you use some thread and stitch it on better than it is.

You can find this costume all over the internet for about $40 USD. I suppose it would be good enough for a “go out to a public party and not show off too much” costume, but the material it is made of, at least in my case, is rough and uncomfortable to wear.

I’ll give it just barely one pitchfork out of five, but that’s mainly because you can toss the wings away…

Temptations XXXXV – The Grotto – Part XIII

Getting almost to the point where all of the players in this tale of meeting the Succubi Queen will come face to face…


Temptations XXXV

By TeraS and Darkside

I thought about that for a moment. “I’m unfamilar with the term.” I focused and restored the rest of clothing. I still had my dignity, after all. “What is it exactly that you mean?”

Tera chuckled softly at his words of being able to live with it. When he didn’t understand the term anchor she explained, “Your world is going to be different now my dear… It’s so much less physical and more mystical than you have known… Some of the things that you will have to face now will ask you a question…. It’s one that you will have to have an answer for… Who do you trust?

She was quiet for a moment and then said, “There are only two beings here and now that I trust completely and without fear. You have not met them but you will soon enough… If you are willing and if you wish it to be.”

Tera considered her next words carefully and then asked, “Are you willing to have me as your anchor…. Or do you wish to find another? That choice is yours as all of these have been. If you accept, then there is more that you will learn from this… If not then I will guide you from here and back to your reality as it is…. And you will not be allowed to return here again…”

I stood up and restored the rest of my clothing. I really had no options at this point, and besides, it’s unlikely I’d ever find another anchor in time, so…

I bowed, “I accept.”

Tera moved close to him as he stood up again. She cupped his cheek with a hand and said, “There are others that are tied to me here for survival. I have not touched their minds for the protection goes both ways…. There are others that are here of choice and need. And the choice was and remains theirs. And then there is you…”

She placed a hand on his chest over his heart and asked, “Are you sure of this? Are you willing in this? Do you trust me? If you cannot say yes then this is all for naught…”

Tera looked into his eyes and said, “Give yourself freely and it will be so….”

I nodded. “Yes, let’s do it.”

Tera nodded and then there was a strong smell of cherry around him. Tera’s fingers seemed to pass through his clothing and it seemed like she trailed her fingers over the skin of his stomach. She looked into his eyes and whispered, “What name will I know you by and what will you require of me?”

She pressed tighter against him, the warmth of her seeping into him as she shivered slightly. She sensations of her bare legs rubbing against his caught his attention and he felt her powers begin to mix and twine with his so very carefully…

She did not attempt to alter him from what he was, but rather added to the strength within him. Her tail twisted around behind her and the tip rubbed against his right thigh. A sort green glow began to form there as she asked, “I ask you not to serve…. But to trust… Can you…. Will you…. Shall you?”


Always questions to answer aren’t there? More next time…
