See them now, the most beautiful forms humanity has to offer. No. That is an illusion. See how disturbingly gorgeous they are features too perfect, too symmetrical bodies too long, too muscular. You cannot look away. No. That is an illusion also. See their magnificence is revealed! See the exotic horns, tiny fangs, eyes of no colour found in this reality. Sense their primal, R-Complex sensuality. See their most amazing features wings of rainbow haze of shifting shades sliding in prismatic displays that hypnotise and lure. No. This too is an illusion. See their malevolence revealed! Pure angels of hell. Tortured wings and burnt flesh and charnel bouquet. You still cannot look away. No. This is not their true from either. No one has ever actually seen an incubus or succubus, only the illusions.
