well the Leanan Sidhe doesn't just take a man's life force; she trades him. She is the "vampiric muse" she grants the man talent in art, music, and such things. In exchange she feeds off of him. Causing the victim to die at a young age. (apparently the phenomenon of talented artists and musicians and such dying young isn't new...or else...)

I would trade for immortality and all the other benefits... not death at young age. I already have an awesome blood line ~ everyone in my family lives past 100 easily. I love your work, even though it's fantasy types of pieces, you do seem to keep the characters mostly realistic in proportions and I for one appreciate that. The females are cute and sexy and you always manage to have some interesting complementing props and backgrounds.

I think you mistook me for tjota, I also do fantasy work; but is writings (I wish I could draw and paint and bring the characters to vivid life like this person does).
a direct link to the fantasy section of my gallery…

a Warning: when I rate something as "Mature" it is for a very good reason. I do commission work, and well internet story commissions tend to be very specific sorts of things (mind the tags is all I'm saying).

Most however is fantasy adventure and world building type stuff. The fanfiction section is full of "thought experiment" and practice in other genre and writing styles linked together for the most part.

Yes, I did not come to this page when replying and was only in my notifications and saw the image the comment came from as a response to my first one.

I have been with a few vampires already but they did not grant me any abilities at all... only drained my energy.
I'm always rejected DX
