It’s that time of the year where I go shamelessly vote-whoring.
Literotica’s 2014 Halloween story competition has started and I have a runner.
Actually, it was supposed to be my entrant for the Summer contest, but the succubus ended up having far too much fun and the story grew too long for me to finish in time for the deadline. Like pretty much every story I’ve written, it also fits the Halloween theme. So I entered it into that competition rather than wait until next year.
Hope you enjoy it. It’s a hot one:
What Kevin Did Last Summer
I talked about how voting works in the Literotica contests back here. In short, anything other than a 5 is worse than no vote at all. Literotica is also fairly sharp at spotting shenanigans. Bashing competitors and multi-voting on a favoured story doesn’t achieve anything as they have a good filtering system for removing dodgy votes. It’s why I like Lit’s contests. I play fair (I don’t even vote on my own entrants) and can still place.
I don’t know how this one will do. “Streetwalking with a Succubus” placed in the money last year. This features a similar character to Nicole and is nicer than my usual ambush-the-unsuspecting-paranormal-romance-fans-with-horror-and-vore entrants. The sex is hot, but the story might not have as strong an aww factor as my previous winners. We’ll see. A lot will depend on the quality of the other entrants (no full-length novels this time, please!).
Speaking of Nicole. While I was writing “What Kevin Did Last Summer” I had an idea for a story—possibly even novella or novel length—featuring both Nicole and Madam Voluptula together. How does that sound? Would you like to read about Nicole and Madam Voluptula double-teaming some poor (lucky!) unsuspecting dude?

To be honest, I actually enjoyed the characterization of Lois a lot in this story.ReplyDelete
I have plans to use her again ;)Delete
Adventures of Lois in University?Delete

Hydra amigo. You are a great writer. I really love reading your stories and will continue to purchase every book you release just as I have done so in the past buuuuuuuuuut.....ReplyDelete
I do kind of feel the need to offer a little constructive criticism. I really hope it doesn't cause offense as that is absolutely the last thing I want to do here.
I sort of feel that your stories of recent have been getting a little tame and slightly more vanilla than they used to be.
Kind of feels like you are holding back these days. Edging more towards erotic and further away from horror.
Imho. The last truely Great story you wrote was Nazi vs Succubus and this is because you seemed to really let your imagination and creativity fly with that one. As you said so yourself in the intro.
They are still good stories and an enjoyable read but just don't seem to be quite the "edge of your seat, wild ride" of a story that they used to be.
I hope that didn't sound bitchy. You are still one of my favourite authors.
Hehe, no problem at. It's fair criticism. I know my readers tend to fall into two camps. Some like the horror stuff and some prefer the nicer Nicole-type stories. I try to bounce between the two. It's virtually impossible to place in any Literotica contest without a feelgood story, hence "nice" Madam Voluptula.Delete
Don't worry. I'm not going soft. I have a few nastier and weirder stories saved up for the next collection ;)
The last succ summoning was dark as night :). The whole rut in the blood of our enemies... Classic :)Delete
Nicole + Madam Voluptua would be incredible. Yes please. :)ReplyDelete
Something with Nicole and Madam Voluptula would be very nice, so yes to that please! and I look forward to more with Lois too (really ) ^_^'ReplyDelete
Sorry, Hydra, but the ending ruined it. Suspension of disbelief can only go so far. It can't stretch to the point of corpses in garbage bags being left out for the trash man. Also, if Voluptula's real form can be seen in the mirror, why have it at all?ReplyDelete
I rather liked the fact that you let the reader's imagination fill in the blanks rather than describe the sucking dry in excruciating detail as usual though.
But as I said the ending ruined it. So, since I can't honestly rate it five, I will not be voting.
Yep, I took a liberty with that one to fit the ending. The bags aren't destined for the trash man. Lois is going to dispose of them properly after the shift ends. (Although it would make more sense for her to hide them in the safe room until it's safe to go out on body disposal duty) Sometimes writers push suspension of disbelief to get the scene they want, and sometimes they get called out for pushing it a little too far. :)Delete
I can see a few possibilities concerning the mirror.Delete
1. Her disguise failed slightly because she enjoyed herself more than usual and lost a bit of control.
2. After absorbing so much energy from Kevin and the men she killed she lost a bit of control, could be combined with number 1.
3. She let him glimpse her true form on purpose. Perhaps she is looking for more humans she can trust like Lois. Perhaps this was a small test to see if he would respond properly to her mental suggestions (i.e. don't ask about what you thought you saw, don't look in the bag). If he had failed the test then hopefully she would have just altered his memories rather than killed him.
Anyway, while I certainly prefer romance in my monster girl-gives-man-best-sex-of-his-life stories, I can't ignore this is some happier fare from M.E. Hydra. A solid 5 stars.
"Come inside, said the succubus to her squeeze toy," is also now one of my favorite lines from a succubus EVER. It works on so many levels, both affectionate and dominating.
You could modify that slightly. Let's say Lois is dragging the sacks to the back room when Kevin is to be shown out. She puts them against the wall as she goes to let him out. He glimpses something out of the corner of his eye but it isn't till he's in the street that he recognises it as a hand and the pirate cloth.ReplyDelete
I must say I liked your Nicole story a lot. In general I like neither overexplicit erotica nor deliberately gory horror, but you never go overboard either way and the writing is excellent. Congratulations.
Hey Hydra fan of your works your one of my favorite if not the only favorite author in literotica.;) I got a question have you ever thought about doing the opposite in one of your stories? Guy meets girl,girl turn out to be more then she seems,girl(succubus) find the guy(worse then her) he more then she seems. an example of this is these two mangas. http://pururin.com/view/7804/02/devil-eater_3.html http://pururin.com/view/10536/00/fall-from-grace-the-lewd-succubus-elvina_1.htmlReplyDelete
I might do. The ole Turn the Tables is a classic twist. Just have to make sure it's not anti-climactic. Don't want people disappointed if the bad succubus loses her badness. ;)Delete
