There was definitely a sense that Crystal Prep had relaxed a great deal since Principal Cadence had taken over the school. And the lunch hour gave a fine opportunity to truly see it. All around the front yard of the building, students were gathered into their various social cliques and groups, talking with each other and hanging out in ways that simply might not have been possible in the old days, given how rigorous and serious thing tended to be. But, it was definitely looking as though things were, for the most part, more upbeat than most students were used to. In particular, two of the school's most noteworthy individuals, Sunny Flare and Indigo Zap, were sitting next to one another on the front steps of the school, eating their respective lunches. For a time, they said nothing to one another, but, after a while, Sunny looked to Indigo with slight curiosity in her expression.
Taking a bite of her sandwich, Indigo replied as best she could.
Sunny bilked at her
Alice's ThursdayIt is Thursday. Alice is in the shower, getting ready to head out with Vincent. The bathroom is flush with steam as Alice runs a silky smooth bar of soap across her tan skin. Her hand darts back and forth, almost nervously as she scrubs herself. Biting her lower lip as she bends over, struggling to reach her lower legs. Giving up, Alice flops down, landing on the bottom of the tub. Finally able to get clean her legs, she brings her attention to the very object that restricts her mobility. Laying on her back, letting the water beat down on her from the showerhead, Alice moans.
“Oh God, I hope tonight goes well. I need tonight to go well.” Alice thinks to herself, closing her eyes. There, feeling the water land on her belly, feeling the droplets roll down her sides, down the upper part of her belly, towards her breasts, slipping down towards her legs.
“You had best behave.” Alice growls as she pounds her right fist on her belly in a somewhat playful manner. She th
Monster Lesson #3In the Dominican Republic, they have their own version of the succubus, La Ciguapa.
La Ciguapa could be an individual, or a species. She lives high up in the mountains, and is described as a beautiful woman, with backwards facing feet, brown or blue skin, and long glossy hair that covers her body. She's always nude, because when you're a temptress, clothing isn't necessary.
La Ciguapa waits for lost and lonely men to pass by the cave she lives in. She'll approach them, offering them companionship and a place to stay. If they fall for her tricks, they'll never be seen again. What she does with them varies from story to story; she might eat them, or maybe keeps them with her forever.
Either way, if you're a man vacationing in the Dominican Republic, or even a lesbian (who knows?), don't go hiking alone.
Monster Lesson #2The "gorgeous gorgon" trope is more than a bit mythologically inaccurate.
In Greek Mythology, Medusa and her two older sisters, Stheno and Euryale, were the daughters of Phorcys and Cetos, primordial sea gods. Medusa in particular was known for her incredible beauty, and had many suitors, including Poseidon himself.
The god was so enthralled with her, he arranged to meet her in secret, with her sisters acting as lookouts. Poseidon chose Athena's temple as the meeting spot, and then conceived two children with Medusa (possibly by rape, it varies depending on the author).
Athena was a virgin goddess, so this greatly offended her. As punishment, she put a curse on the three sisters, turning them into the gorgons. They had fangs and claws made of brass, huge wings, snakes for hair, and, most famously, turned anyone who looked them in the eye to stone.
Eventually, the hero Perseus decapitated Medusa, leaving her sisters alone, as they were immortal. Even in death, her curse remained, and he
Monster Lesson #4Every country in the world has their own version of the vampire legend, and some are weirder than others. For example, the Philippines has the Aswang.
By day a normal woman, at night the Aswang sprouts wings and flies in search of her favorite food: babies. She uses her incredibly long, sharp tongue to reach into people's homes and snatch up their children. In some stories, she tears fetuses out of their mothers to eat. That's just plain gross.
The Aswang is sometimes called a "Tik-tik", because of the noise it makes. Its said that, the closer it gets to you, the quieter the noise is.
There are several legends about women marrying handsome men and moving into their elaborate mansions, only to find out that their new mother-in-law is a bloodthirsty Aswang. (Insert evil in-law joke here.)
Strangely, the Aswang are more human than most monsters. They have families and friends, during the day at least, and will not harm people who live in their town. Because of this, the Philippines have a
