I love that one. I'm looking for a really sexy picture. :)

She's a seductress...see online post:

"Your doom, Wolf of Ruin?" Though her movements were shadowed again, her voice seemed to be coming from the walls of the chasm themselves. The scent of her sex permeated his nostrils, enticing his most basest of instincts to take over. To have their way with her. That was all she wanted, and he could smell it in the very scent of her core.

"I seek not your doom, but rather, your seed."

There was the most audible licking of lips that perhaps the Wolf of Ruin had ever heard. That sound a woman made when she wanted it, laid it out on the table, and spread her legs. That trace of moisture that he no doubt wanted dribbling off his erect cock. Her voice was like her tongue, circling the head of his want.

"I want it coating my insides, drooling down my thighs. I want it inside me because I am the only creature in the world worthy to carry your spawn, Wolf."

A rock clicked down the side of the chasm from the ground high above. It sounded, almost, like there was something up there. But he knew she was down here with him, so truly, what could it be? Perhaps an animal enticed by the scent of his kills.

"Mmm..." A soft moan. He could almost hear something akin to fingers slipping over wet flesh.

"Stop pretending you don't want it. Sheathe your knife. But come closer and unsheathe your sword."

Just a touch of moonlight illuminated the curve of her succulent lips...

This was the next post:

The look in the Wolf of Ruin's eyes was unmistakeable as his pants were undone and lowered.

The shockwaves of pleasure that suddenly racked through her as he plowed his length into her forced her glistening body to arc over the rock that she'd positioned herself against. Still, he had found a formidible lover in this creature of the chasm. She was slick and sweet, and as soon as he was inside her, she was wild with wanton lust and sexual ferocity. Her pelvis bucked until he would growl like the bestial man that he was. And she would scream with such pleasure in that voice, that voice that rang in his mind and his ears, that it would be impossible for him to keep his seed to himself.

And she didn't let him leave her. She'd fucked men before that found more interest in spraying their seed across the curve of her back, the roundness of her tits, or the perfect pillows of her lips--but not Therome. She wouldn't allow it were he to even try. Her hands went back and gripped his sweaty pounding hips and forced him to bury himself to the hilt. Her black, silky hair with odd greenish highlights stuck to his chest as she leaned against him, keeping her ass flattened to him, and bit at his neck like a bitch in heat.

The light bathed the edge of her face before she threw herself forward and gripped the rock in front of her in preparation for him. She knew it was coming. She knew he was ready. She could feel his readiness pulsating inside her. And then came the spray of heat inside of her. SHe shoved back of him, guaranteeing that he was sending his seed into the very depths of her.

Guaranteeing that his seed would germinate inside her...

That was the sexiest rp I ever did. There wasn't much else to it..but here's the last portion. And for your information, I'm a chick that rps. Imagine that.


Her breath came in gasps as he stepped back from her. He could hear the press of her fingers inside her, making sure none of him slipped out of her and down her thighs before the change happened. It was quick the way her legs pressed together, and scales started to cover them. It was so fast the way her head bucked back and then, she turned to look over her shoulder at him. Her eyes watched his eyes--half expecting him to execute her.

When her eyes turned into green, snakelike diamonds, and her odd hair started to hiss...

It was at the exact same moment that the lustful stare the Gorgon gave to Therome turned him directly to stone.

The Pale Ghost turned and stared at Therome's frozen features, watching them as the snakes of her hair danced around her features. Her legs--which were no longer supple thighs but the tail of a snake--carried her over to him. She wound the tip of her tail around Therome, and her tongue snapped out to lick, smell, and taste Therome all at one moment.

She would miss him.

But he would be proud of his children.

Why do you assholes always draw gorgons with awesome racks? Medusa would turn any man who saw her to stone because she was so hideous. That means either no titties, or, if they are there, they are shriveled, wrinkled, and dry. Gorgons are not seductresses, they are gruesome monsters.

Have you seen much Greek art? Not a whole lot of flabby fucks standing around there. Pretty much all monsters that have human body parts have the human parts nearly flawless.

Also, making Medusa beautiful actually enhances the danger. She is something you *WANT* to look at, but can't because doing so would turn you to stone.

And Greek mythology is rife with lots of other pretty looking women monsters who will seduce you before doing horrible horrible things to you.

>> No.11689330

From Wikipedia:
"While ancient Greek vase-painters and relief carvers imagined Medusa and her sisters as beings born of monstrous form, sculptors and vase-painters of the fifth century began to envisage her as being beautiful as well as terrifying."
All the depictions of her being beautiful are basically fanfiction.

The idea of Vampires turning to dust when exposed to sunlight is itself, a Hollywood concoction. Most Vampires function just fine.

And the idea that Vampires are sexy sons of bitches that seduce lovely young maidens to the point where they're practically begging to become their immortal lovers is veeeeery old as well. Way older than Twilight.

The said bag contained three we incorporated--the bulette, the owl bear, and the rust monster.

Hmm. In WoD, I had a Medusa be a spirit of despair, shattered and bound in four artifacts, a robe that caused you never to make any sounds while worn, apart from a low hissing of snakes, a mask that petrified people (basically an AGG attack), and two gloves, one that ruined dead matter, and one that ruined living.

All this was taken from the term 'medusa touch', which I think is a french bastardization of midas touch, but I got inspired.
