Wall Watchers
Wall Watchers - Overview
A class of elemental spirit. While this group includes members with wildly different types, they share similar habits and abilities. As a group, they are very territorial and possessive spirits that jealously guard the area they believe to be theirs. Besides this, they are also generalized with abilities to incapacitate trespassers, and move both themselves and victims freely through their territory. They use these powers to hunt and ambush intruders, capturing them and removing them from their territory.
Due to these abilities and habits, Wall Watchers are useful as guardians, especially in dungeons and labyrinths, giving them their name. Magicians with the means can conjure Wall Watchers to ward off thieves and other unwanted visitors. Unlike golems, which are regularly slow and lacking any will of their own, Wall Watchers possess the patience of constructs with the active hunting instinct of guard-animals, making them superior guardians, if one can look past

Anaboko-hebi and Medusa
Anaboko-hebi
Also called Ana-hebi. A form of snake spirit that seeks to possess people with unresolved desires. They enter the human body through a wound or orifice, like the mouth of a sleeping person, and make a nest in the gap or hollow of the victim's heart. Those possessed by Ana-hebi are Medusa, beings with snakes for hair which are used to feed on life energy and propagate the anaboko-hebi.  
The first major division of Anaboko-hemi is between wild and tamed spirits. The wild Ana-hebi will seek out those with strong, hidden desires like grudges or unspoken love, to feed and warm themselves on the energy given off by the person's soul. While they will possess anyone, they favor women.
They will whisper to the victim in voices only they can hear, and influence their dreams. The one possessed will be imbued with the snake's hunger for meat that grows into a desire to swallow living prey, and their hair will turn into living serpents. The spirit seeks to break down the victim's

The Cult of Ygg
It is said among the serpentine Lamia that they decended from mythic ancenstral forms, wurms of great strength, with the hidden lore of the earth etched into their bones. The Lamia of the world of Aer speak of two great, ageless serpents: Gorgon and Echidna.
It is said that Mother Gorgon, lurks in carved and ancient limestone caves deep below the Cirran desert, where the wind blows lonely and the dusty sands whisper with all they have from the time they made up glorious mountains.
But they speak of another, who dwells within the secret living labyrinths of the land the elves call Stratus. Mother Echidna, All-Mother. Mother of Monsters. She who consumes and renews without end. There are many legends of her birth and existance, but this is one that is rare and special.
Long ago, they say there was a race of great science, art, and lore, and could master all. There came a time that by their own hands, they would conqure death, and truly become as the old gods whispered to them from their

Sisterhood of the Heart
The sisterhood of the heart.
A cult found deep in the limestone caves beneath the sands of the Cirrian desert. Lead by the serpentine women known as Lamia and whispered to be mastered by an ageless gorgon, the sisterhood believes that their species were once powerful magical beings, and seek to transform themselves and revert back to these ancient forms, or failing that, serving them.
They speak of old times, when the world was a single whole, and the mothers of the Lamia were great beasts of the earth, fearsome wurms that ruled and ravaged kingdoms, places turned to immortal stone, or swallowed and born anew, obedient to their new mother.
They speak of the Fae, who were wild, mercurial, creatures of beautiful madness. They lived in another realm, and for them all they saw was a dream to mold as they wished, all their secret game, all other creatures toys for their amusement.
For a long time the sisterhood has existed in secret, claiming elvish slaves from the desert, willing servants

Though it was only tucked away a few blocks from the bustle of the city, Tom Row couldn’t help but turn his brown eyes on his girlfriend standing in the afternoon light and wonder how she had found this place.

Cali Rounder stood about a head shorter than him, right now looking in her own blue eyes with a pocket mirror, fixing her glasses and fiddling with her neck-length blonde hair, a sharp contrast to his “boring brown” as she teased him, short and simple. She was soft (not that he was cut with muscles) and curvy (which he decidedly was NOT), noticed best by the plump bottom that filled her jeans, and full, heavy breasts that Tom couldn’t fully hold in his hands, and which he knew from experience looked fucking incredible in a shiny corset.

And that was the secret they shared that made them so crazy about each other: for however normal they both looked, they were a kinky pair that never got off better than with latex, leather, and a bit of role play. Whether being his slave or his mistress, the sight of her in the kinds of suits and set ups he’d looked at for so long on the net got him more than a little excited.

“Hehehe, how about this for your first suit Tom?”

Cali gestured at the big display window where there was something like a pen with two mannequins, covered in glossy black latex from head to paw-gloved hand and foot, with cat tails, strap on dildos, collars, and cat-eared hoods with tinted lenses.

A bit too big a step for me today. Tom thought to himself, Not to mention how much it must cost.

“Hey, I said okay to wearing latex, not to selling my organs to do it.” He laughed, but he was honestly a little nervous and excited to be doing this in the flesh and he eyed the sign, a beckoning cat done in a metallic finish. “I don’t want to get too deep just yet. Let’s look around first. Maybe they will have some speedos or something.”

“Okay, okay, come on, I called ahead, so the shopkeep should be waiting for us. We’ll have the store to ourselves for a little while to get you suited up.”

And with that, Tom walked forward and held open the small door, following after his curvy girlfriend into Pretty Kitty’s Latex Emporium.

It was quite warm inside the store, more than Tom expected, and at first glance there was no one around, just a sea of shiny sex, costumes, toys, and all the bits and pieces that make it all work. The smell of it rolled over him, and he shared a brief look with his girlfriend as his blood started to pump. He was still nervous, but it was like a latex wonderland, and he couldn’t help being excited and a little turned on already.

From behind the counter ahead of them, a young woman stepped out and strode towards them with a greeting, but Tom was too busy looking to hear it.

She was a pale woman in her twenties, with blue eyes behind oversized round glasses. Her hair was gray, must be dyed, Tom thought briefly, and pulled back into a casual, sloppy ponytail. But while her hair was different, it was her slim body that he was drawn to, wrapped up like one of his fantasies. She wore a metallic silver bodysuit with short sleeves like a t-shirt, and that reached down past the glossy short shorts and belt that she wore, ending around her mid-thigh, and shining like a mirror with polish. She wore a tight top that matched her shorts, glossy black with a zipper that ran from her neck down between her B-cup breasts, further emphasizing them. Black latex leggings ran from below her knees down, ending in matching shoes. And after Cali stepped on his foot, he realized she was offering him a short black latex-gloved hand.

“You must be Tom. Welcome to Pretty Kitty’s. I’m Bri. Licorice?”

Cali declined with a sidelong glare at him, but Tom, feeling embarrassed, could do nothing but accept it with a thanks, and apologize for gawking, which she waved off.

“That’s exactly why I’m dressed like this. Sex is never going to sell harder than in a sex shop, right? And what better way to get people relaxed and ready to spend then showing off some of what we have for sale? And here, excuse me.” Stepping past them, she picked up a sign off the floor, setting it on the door. “And there! As we discussed, the next 90 minutes are all for working on Tom here.”

“Well, I don’t know if I’ll need that much time. I’d like to start out smaller, and try it out first. Maybe something like a shirt or some speedos.”

“Absolutely. Please, follow me.”

A short time later, Tom was in the dressing room in the corner of the store with a tight black latex shirt in hand, feeling warm and chewing a second piece of licorice. Given the warmth of the store, he was actually happy to take off his shirt a bit, setting it on a small stool while he picked up a bottle of oil off a small single shelf.

Popping the cap, he was surprised to find that it had a nice, heady kind of scent, and was doubly surprised when he began rubbing it on himself, realizing it wasn’t just lube, but some kind of oil, and the fragrance blossomed as he started rubbing his chest and stomach, feeling his skin tingle in a way that was strange, but not unpleasant, and being new, it distracted enough that he almost forgot to lube up the inside of the shirt, but caught himself, shuddering to think what would happen if he damaged any of the gear on sale.      

All Tom’s worries were forgotten though when he slid the shirt on. The feel of the latex on his oiled skin as he pulled it into place was unlike anything he’d felt before, and more than he’d imagined. He smoothed it out gently, and seeing his chest in shiny black, he stepped out of the changing room.

“Hey hey, looking good!”

“Hmm. It’s a start. But it feels incomplete though when it’s *just* the shirt.

“I know just the hot pants to match! And I’ll bring you more black licorice sir?
“Ahh, sure, thank you for that.”

Shortly, Tom was back in the room, chewing two more pieces of licorice and stripping off his underwear for a pair of tight black hot pants, and after a bit more oiling, he slid the shorts up, turning his tingling, oiled crotch into a sleek bulge. He didn’t know whether it was the oil or just the excitement, but the latex pressed against his sensitive skin felt more than good, but right, like his fantasies were meant to lead to this. Looking at himself in the mirror and feeling warm, he couldn’t help but run a hand against his bulge, sending a shudder through him with the sensation of touch through the latex, pressing against it from both sides.

“Are you alright in there sir? Did something happen?”

“Come on Tom! Stop hiding and come out already.”

Tom blinked with a start and realized he had been staring blankly at the mirror, caressing himself with a cupped hand, and hurried out, trying to hide his embarrassment as he accepted another licorice piece, despite his mouth being thick with the taste.

“I do thank you, and I like licorice enough, but is it okay to give me all these?”

Bri smiled and brushed off the question with a flick of her wrist.
“Psh! We got them as free samples to give out, but surprise surprise, not a lot of people come into a high-class fetish store, and even less like black licorice. Please, relax without worries.”
“…Sure.”

“Mmmm. I don’t know my love. It’s nice, but it’s just not the same as a one piece suit.”

“This is literally my first time wearing this stuff. I said I wanted to start small, remember? Not to mention,” He broke off and rubbed his thumb and fingers together, not wanting to talk money in front of the store clerk.

He wasn’t subtle enough, however.

“Oh, if you were looking at something like my bodysuit here,” Bri swept a hand down, emphasizing her silvery second skin “not only does  it stay easier to put on, but the price is still very reasonable. Plus we not only accept credit, but have several different options for payment plans~” she reported with the cheerful smile of a salesman at work.

He turned his eyes back to Cali. “You know the difference Tom. And think of how good it’ll feel~.”

Her pointed stare and small smile made him think about some of the pics saved on his computer, and he had to throw up his hands in surrender. It wasn’t like he disliked it so far, and if it made his girl happy, it was fine to just relax and not worry about it right now, rather than argue.

So he stood naked in the changing room, oiling himself up more as he chewed absentmindedly, feeling warm and pleasantly swamped in tingling scent of the oil in his nose and on his skin along with the taste of the licorice that felt like it was starting to overflow from his watering mouth, like it was seeping into his head and trickling down his body as he smacked his lips. But the shop clerk’s words came back to just relax and not worry, and he figured that was the right option as he got dressed into the next suit.
Pretty Kitties, Part One
Hello hello! It's been a long time but I'm breaking my silence at long last with a fresh update of the big project that kept me tied up for so long with all the latex and mind control you love, now with a male sub! This pairs with the other big announcement I have, that I now have a patreon! 

www.patreon.com/phantomoftruth

If you want to read the full thing right now, you can do so by becoming a patron for the low cost of $1! I'll be making a journal entry with more details later today, but for now, I have some place to be. Hope you all have a great day!

And my thanks to :iconrosvo: As this wouldn't be a thing without you my friend^^.

Also I'm tagging it strict because the story will get spicy later and I want to just be consistent. Better safe than sorry!
Loading...
As far behind as it is, let me start off by thanking everyone for the birthday wishes. I did see them and appreciate them, even if I didn't reply to them promptly. I've been plugging away at a few projects and a commission slowly, so I do apologize greatly for the silence here and on the tumblr. I've basically been grappling with a curse hanging over my house and to keep things brief, it's been rough, and I've been in a state of dissolution. I won't talk about the projects just yet, but I did want to take a chance to warm up with this long overdue update and just talk a bit about some games and anime.

Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight, is short, well polished 2D metroidvania that draws heavily on the Souls series in terms of mechanics and theming. It sits at ~$10 and I cleared it on normal in about 6 hours, though there's 2 harder difficulties and several secrets I didn't get, but it's a game with such a good mood that even knowing nothing about the Momodora series, I'd be happy to go back and play it again. Though there are definite platforming sections, I'd say the emphasis is much more on combat and getting soaked in on this world slowly being consumed by a spreading curse.

My only real complaints is that as a shorter game, there were certain characters and events that I was expecting more of which didn't really get any play beyond being little teases. That, and while you do have a double jump right from game start, it's very poor for actually getting higher, meant more for crossing gaps than climbing up things. All in all however, I'd absolutely recommend it for a nice, easily consumed mix of challenge and atmosphere.

Pokemon Moon: I finally managed to get my hands on a copy and made my way through the first island. While I can't speak for competitive balance, I will say that I really enjoy the polish that has been put in, with one of my favorites being the different ways your character moves when moving through tall grass. The game does tutorialize for too long, and things feel like they take just a bit too long to happen, but I love the designs of the new pokemon, and really appreciate the wide variety of different types you can encounter right from the first island with a lot of solid choices mixed in. Before leaving for the first time, I've found everything but ice and dragon types, which is a really nice wide mix to start off your journey with. I can't comment much more than that, but I look forward to getting more time with it when I don't have as much work on my plate.

----

With games out of the way, I'll just briefly move on to anime for the season.

Little Witch Academia: Yeah I'm watching fansubs. They are perfectly fine. That said, if you saw the original OVA and Movie and just wanted more of that feeling, characters, and world of witches and magic, then you know exactly what you are getting. Trigger delivers fantastically on a beautiful, energetic and fantastic world and cast with lots of room to grow, while paying constant homage with a dense mix of references to animation of east and west alike. The story is taking its time, focused more on the characters, and it's one of my favorites of the season. It's a 24 episode Trigger anime, I don't know what else to say. I have ideas of where it's going to go, but who knows? If you have any doubts, then check out the original OVA, or The Enchanted Parade and make the call.

Konosuba season 2: This being my other major favorite of the season. Konosuba is one of the best comedy series to have come out in anime in a good while indeed, with a fantasy world where everything is just a bit jank and our four heroes are all lovable idiots, and you can really enjoy the suffering they inflict on themselves and each other. Studio DEEN finally found themselves a really good fit, so hopefully they can adjust their wheelhouse to projects like this that suit them and stop botching things like When They Cry. If you have to pick one show for the season to watch and need cheering up, while also enjoying a nice parody on the rapidly overgrowing Trapped in Another World genre, then pick Konosuba every time.

Maid Dragon Kobayashi: This show actually has a really solid mix of comedy with Slice of Light happiness and a mixture of character weight in the background to create a SoL series that has solid meaning to it. It did a really solid job of selling me on it and I'm happy to have stuck with it since, enjoying the life of dead-eyed programming woman Kobayashi and her dragon maid. I had my eye on this series since the start, but I don't think I started watching it until realizing how Konosuba was later in the cycle, and glad I picked it up.

Interview with Monstergirls: From here on, the recommendations here are conditional. In my mind, There is a continuum, a line. At one end of this line is Monster Musume, which fully embraces its dumbness as a harem sex comedy and goes more towards the MGE's fetishism of monstergirls. On the far opposite end of that scale is Interviews with Monstergirls, which takes a much more realistic take on the vampire, succubus, yuki-onna, and dullahan, to the point that lots of people complained that they weren't monstergirls at all. It's much more of a slice of life series that asks questions about the lives of monstergirls, with some humor and a touch of drama thrown in. I will say there are gags that did hit me really well, but I can see it being a bit too light and fluffy for some, or dislike the lack of fantasy given to the monstergirls. That said, this series getting animated makes me hopeful that we will get to see Nurse Hitomi's Clinic get an anime some time in the near future, as I believe it sits nicely in the middle ground between this show and Monster Musume.

Gabriel Dropout: A gag series about angels and devils who are bad at their jobs. Unlike what was said on the weebcast coverage of this show, I don't believe it's without merit, though I also have not see Umaru-chan or Dokuro-chan so I can't comment. It generally gets a laugh out of me at least once an episode, and the gags that stick do so really well. However, the show lacks a feeling of really getting to go anywhere unlike the other series above this, so I stick with the call I made at the start of the series and call this a B-level show. It's good, but not on any must-watch list, and a fantastic source of reaction gifs. If you have the time, then it's worth watching, but if you can only watch X number of anime at a time, then Konosuba is higher on the list.

Saga of Tanya the Evil
: Finally, we hit the edgy, military themed action series on the list. This was another show I knew about, but didn't originally plan to watch, instead getting picked up on its solid start. If you do want a magic/military kind of series with a bit of edge to it, then I recommend just going in on the first 2 episodes and DO NOT LOOK UP ABOUT THE SERIES. The anime listing kind of spoils the premise they set up in the first bit of the series. All that said, it's fine, but I'm also not so into it that you're missing out, as I don't feel quite so hooked on the premise or characters, so it's on the bottom of my list as a B-grade as well.

And that's more or less what I wanted to talk about in brief, a nice warm up of 60-90 minutes. Small disclosure, I haven't seen Masamune's revenge or Scum's Wish, but they sound very promising, as does Rakugo, but I haven't seen the first season yet, so I can't comment on it at all.

Again, thank you all for your time, have a great day^^
Time to once again break the silence and wish you all merry Christmas, happy new year, and joyous holidays. I do apologize for my silence, I've been a bit more active on tumblr, but this month has been stalled out on due to holiday rush, most keenly felt when I got terribly sick the weekend before Christmas, so I simply haven't had the chance to work on the things that I've wanted.

I have one special project on my plate to finish before the new year, then can get back to business. I have one more day of running about to see family today, then a few days of work, so things should start to pick back up here/on tumblr with the new year.

Interview with Monstergirls: From here on, the recommendations here are conditional. In my mind, There is a continuum, a line. At one end of this line is Monster Musume, which fully embraces its dumbness as a harem sex comedy and goes more towards the MGE's fetishism of monstergirls. On the far opposite end of that scale is Interviews with Monstergirls, which takes a much more realistic take on the vampire, succubus, yuki-onna, and dullahan, to the point that lots of people complained that they weren't monstergirls at all. It's much more of a slice of life series that asks questions about the lives of monstergirls, with some humor and a touch of drama thrown in. I will say there are gags that did hit me really well, but I can see it being a bit too light and fluffy for some, or dislike the lack of fantasy given to the monstergirls. That said, this series getting animated makes me hopeful that we will get to see Nurse Hitomi's Clinic get an anime some time in the near future, as I believe it sits nicely in the middle ground between this show and Monster Musume.

Gabriel Dropout: A gag series about angels and devils who are bad at their jobs. Unlike what was said on the weebcast coverage of this show, I don't believe it's without merit, though I also have not see Umaru-chan or Dokuro-chan so I can't comment. It generally gets a laugh out of me at least once an episode, and the gags that stick do so really well. However, the show lacks a feeling of really getting to go anywhere unlike the other series above this, so I stick with the call I made at the start of the series and call this a B-level show. It's good, but not on any must-watch list, and a fantastic source of reaction gifs. If you have the time, then it's worth watching, but if you can only watch X number of anime at a time, then Konosuba is higher on the list.

Saga of Tanya the Evil
: Finally, we hit the edgy, military themed action series on the list. This was another show I knew about, but didn't originally plan to watch, instead getting picked up on its solid start. If you do want a magic/military kind of series with a bit of edge to it, then I recommend just going in on the first 2 episodes and DO NOT LOOK UP ABOUT THE SERIES. The anime listing kind of spoils the premise they set up in the first bit of the series. All that said, it's fine, but I'm also not so into it that you're missing out, as I don't feel quite so hooked on the premise or characters, so it's on the bottom of my list as a B-grade as well.

And that's more or less what I wanted to talk about in brief, a nice warm up of 60-90 minutes. Small disclosure, I haven't seen Masamune's revenge or Scum's Wish, but they sound very promising, as does Rakugo, but I haven't seen the first season yet, so I can't comment on it at all.

Again, thank you all for your time, have a great day^^
