IF: Multiple (Legend of the Nine Tailed Fox) 九尾狐


  In ancient Chinese tales, fox demons are able to turn into beautiful women,and the one with NINE Tails is the most tempting one for man. Enamored by her beauty, an emperor would neglect his duty of ruling his kingdom, and in time to come, ruin it!

  九尾狐,历史上著名的妖姬“妲妃”就是九尾狐仙幻变成的。她艳如桃李,妖媚动人,蛊惑纣王荒淫误国。

I wait and wait to see your name come up with a post ... your art and the accompanying story are like a double shot of something deliciously potent! Thanks so much for telling the tales, too! (I also thought: THIS WOULD MAKE SUCH A FABULOUS TATTOO!)
