Webcomic / Dangerously Chloe

Go To
Ready for some romantic demonic shenanigans?

The second spin-off in the Eerie Cuties 'verse, sharing many of the creative team from that comic in variant roles, Dangerously Chloe follows the exploits of the succubus Chloe Love (last seen in Eerie Cuties leaving to go to a new schoolnote  after an incident with a pair of Doom Panties temporarily made her evil), who is summoned from Hell due to a misunderstanding with a museum "burglar" and a blood oath.

The series was first posted on October 22, 2012. It completed its run on April 8, 2019 with 635 pages. It has twenty four chapters of varying lengths. A mirror can be found here.

The art tends toward borderline R rated for lots the sex and nudity (Dear God does it have a lot; but, then, the main character is a succubus) but with lots of Censor Steam and Scenery Censor as well as Barbie Doll Anatomy, since most of the characters are under 18. Of the three Eerie Cuties comics DC has the most sexual situations, EC has the least, with Magick Chicks falling in between.

This webcomic contains examples of…

  • All Men Are Perverts: Teddy honestly tries to avert this trope, at least as much as a Hormone-Addled Teenager who hangs out with succubi can, but eventually even he succumbs to temptation by taking advantage of Lacy's wish to get some "hands on" instruction in male reproductive anatomy.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?:
    • Chloe first assumes she's been summoned for sex, and prepares to "get this over with", but that so wasn't going to happen. Justified in that she is a succubus, and sex is just what they do.
    • After becoming "permanently" female, Teddi accepts a date with a member of the football team, Ed, in order to find a candidate who might survive deflowering Chloe. He acts the complete gentleman and walks Teddi to the door then gives her a kiss goodnight before leaving. Standing at the door after he leaves a stunned Teddi asks, "Wait...That's it?"
  • Art Shift:
    • Sort of, in that the comic didn't initially use visibly different artists in the same way as some if the EC-verse strips do, but there was a sudden change to the design of Abby and several strips were reported, to avoid Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick in the firm of implied incest.
    • Then in February 2015, the original artist, Cassandra Wedeking, dropped out and was replaced by Jason Waltrip, leading to an immediate minor shift in style.
  • Bedmate Reveal: Chapter 2 (aptly titled "Demon in Bed") starts with one.
  • Bland-Name Product: Alchemy's DiePod, which is not just a kickass music player, it has a DeathTracker app that tells her whenever anyone in her vicinity is likely to die. Teddy is not happy to learn that his name pops up a lot and she doesn't actually worry about him until the probability exceeds 50 percent.
  • Blatant Lies: Pandora's standard MO is half blatant lies and half Refuge in Audacity. Teddy's forced to follow suit after Chloe's weirdness completely takes over his life.
  • Blood Magic: How Teddy accidentally made a Deal with the Devil.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: Alchemy is bound by "nature documentary rules": no interference in the natural course of events. Which side of the life/death line you happen to fall on at the moment literally doesn't matter to a reaper, they can be your friend either way.
  • Can't Have Sex, Ever: Not without Teddy dying and being damned to Hell at least. This is no longer the case when Teddy is able to set up a date with Naomi, disolving the contract between Chloe and Teddy, and then Teddy's ascension into a god-tier being bound by a slave choker allows them two weeks of continual sexual escapades for just the first round.
  • Chibi: Chloe looks adorable as is, but cutesy of moments rendered as chibi-fied panels dangerously approaches brain-melting level.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When Abby gets upset upon learning that, when Chloe sleeps with Teddy, she will "'love' him to death," Pandora reassures her that it's just an expression: "There's very little 'love' involved."
  • Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: When Teddy steals Lacy away from their date, Triana (who really isn't too thrilled with the date) is torn between thankful and infuriated.
    Triana: HE STOLE MY GIRLFRIEND? Thank God, dare he?
  • Continuity Snarl:
    • With the other series set in the EC-verse. Time explicitly passes faster in Hell, where Chloe spent an undetermined timespan after wreaking havoc in Charybdis Academy. The main problem is with Magick Chicks, as some episodes imply DC takes place before Cerise's takeover of Artemis Academy, while other suggest it takes place after this arc.
    • Not only that, but in the original EC-verse although Chloe was always been a succubus, she actually grew up on Earth and generally seemed fairly acclimated to mortal concepts. In the present comic, Chloe often finds concepts of human romance, sex, and even parenthood confusing (such as not understanding the issue with girl-Teddy having sex with his/her own father), introducing a Fish out of Water trait for Chloe that was not even hinted at in the EC-continuity.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: The Sweater of Pure Itch.
  • CPR: Clean, Pretty, Reliable: In these strips, Teddy-as-Teddi uses minimal CPR to save the victim of a drug overdose — something that's really unlikely in real life.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Chloe is a powerful, super strong succubus who can shapeshift, fly, teleport ... but when she falls for Teddy, the boy she intended to sex up and curse to hell, it becomes a major sacrifice for her to have to hold back her natural urges and succubus duties in order to save Teddy from damnation. In fact, the only way she can truly save him is to get him a girlfriend thus nullifying the pact, but also banishing herself from his side.
  • Deal with the Devil: Due to accidentally smearing his blood on an old statue, Teddy traded his soul for a girlfriend. He didn't really want anything, that was just the only thing he could think of.
  • Death Is Cheap: Thanks to magical beverages, Abby certainly thinks so. she commits suicide at one point to take care of business in heaven, figuring that she'll just get brought back when she's done.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Surprisingly enough, Chloe once she sees Teddy without a shirt. It seems as though it made her forget that getting it on with him would kill him so when she jumped his bones...yeah, whoops.
  • Don't Fear The Reaper: Alchemy being the reaper in question.
  • Dramatic Unmask: Prudence's "Revelo!" magic dispels Pandora's glamour she used to impersonate Chloe.
  • Dominatrix: Sergeant Ilsa Slash-Stab looks the part of a military-based dom — complete with chains and a whip around her waist.
  • Do You Want to Copulate?:
    • A plain weird example occurs when Naomi joins Teddy in the shower under the influence of Golden Wings. She sees him with a Raging Stiffie, and offers to put on some rubber gloves and take care of it for him.
    • Self-professed lesbian Lacy is perfectly willing to give Teddy a handjob because she figures it will probably be her only opportunity to see how a penis actually works.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady / Wrong Genetic Sex: Teddy's Gender Benders are actually an extreme case of Involuntary Shapeshifting that give him the full-body appearance of a girl (top and bottom, unfortunately) without actually changing his sex.
  • Easily Forgiven: After an initial Freak Out, Teddy and his sister quickly forgive Chloe for completely mucking up their past. Teddy accepts that the situation was a Stable Time Loop, and Chloe explained that she only wanted to help. He also prevents her from trying to get his parents back together, claiming that they are happier being separated.
  • Easy Sex Change: Teddy justifies his sudden Gender Bender into "Teddi" by claiming he somehow managed to undergo a complete surgical sex change over the weekend and replies "he was a very good surgeon" When Naomi calls him out on the preposterous nature of his claim.
  • Everyone Is Bi: Among succubi, this seems to be the case. Unsurprising, given their job description and their being a race of Gender Benders.
  • Everything Sounds Sexier in French: French is part of the Chloe's curriculum for exactly this reason.
  • Evil Is Petty: Confronted by a too-clever (younger) Melissa, Chloe slaps her ice-cream to the ground.
  • Exact Words: Teddy makes Chloe promise not to turn up at his school as a "mysterious transfer student." However, this does not cover turning up as a substitute teacher
  • Fantastic Arousal: A succubus' horns are sensitive. Very sensitive.
  • Fantastic Drug: Golden Wings is an angelic energy drink. When humans drink it, they feel full of life, have their goodness increased to unnatural levels, and lose all common sense. When Trianna notices that Naomi is behaving very oddly, she outright asks if she is "on something".
  • Fantastic Racism: The angels don't like succubi or those who associate with them. The succubi, for their part, just think the angels are idiots.
  • Fauxreigner: Teddi's strip-club co-workers speak on-stage in Poirot Speak and act with national stereotypes like Oireland and Asian Speekee Engrish, but off the clock they reveal they're just acts for the audience and they were actually born and raised in Canada.
  • Finger Poke of Doom: Pandora-as-Chloe flicks Prudence in the nose twice, once to stop her from powering up and again to stop Prudence from using the "Lord Cleaver of Heavens" BFS.
  • Flight of Romance: ... meets Bridal Carry. Early on. "I have wings, dummy!" Either succubi are very strong fliers, or continuous power-up helps.
  • Fourth-Date Marriage: Pandora doesn't even bother to date Teddy's father before marrying him.
  • Funetik Aksent: In Chloe's "substitute French teacher" disguise, she has a really thick French accent.
  • Gender Bender: Trying to cure Teddy's cold with Chloe's blood turns him into a temporary replica of her. He slowly changes back as he metabolizes the blood. Later Pandora injects him with a half dose to keep Chloe from uncontrollably ravaging him to death out of hunger, which is followed by Alchemy injecting him with their own blood to see if it would turn him in to a copy of them. The ectoplasmic blood unexpectedly stabilizes the succubi blood, and now Teddy's stuck for life unless they figure out a way to fix it.
  • Get Out!: Teddy gets fed up with Chole after his sister is turned into a succubus and tells her to leave.
  • Gilligan Cut: Naomi promises not to get involved with Teddy. The very next panel, she's asking him out.
  • Glamour:
    • Chloe uses one to become Chloe D'amour, French Teacher.
    • Pandora uses two:
      • The first is to make Chloe look more like Pandora's darker-skinned, two-color haired original self (which fools an angel armed to capture Pandora).
      • The second is to make Pandora look like a more wholesome version of the real Chloe to further carry out the charade. "Revelo" is used by Prudence to dispel this in front of Teddy and Abby when the clinching fact of their hands not glowing proves this isn't the "Real Chloe" but an impostor.
  • Good Is Dumb:
    • The first three angels shown are simple minded and thoroughly incompetent. Pandora says angels are so stuffy she can get them to do anything she wants.
    • When Naomi drinks Golden Wings, an angelic energy drink, it increases her goodness to unnatural levels and she loses all common sense.
  • Harem Genre: A western example; the creators make no secret of their fondness for manga and anime, and Teddy steadily accumulates a retinue of cute girls with varying levels of unsuitability and interest.
    • To the point that it even mirrors the whole most suitable girl is the first one that is common of the Japanese example
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Charity's heavy-handed interrogation of Pandora-glamoured Chloe is enough for Zachuriel to put his foot down on it (Charity causes Chloe's bonds to constrict, almost choking her before Zachuriel ends it).
  • Hot Teacher: Chloe disguises herself as Miss Chloe D'amour, French teacher.
  • I Know Mortal Kombat: Abby thinks she's able to be a competent lawyer simply because she's played the Phoenix Wright games.
  • Imagine Spot: As Chloe looks for Teddy, we discover what she considers to be a relationship with him.
  • Incest Subtext: Teddy's younger sister teases Teddy by having Chloe hug him while transformed into an older, bustier, and scantily clad version of herself. It doesn't help that in her first appearance in the comic she accuses Teddy of adultery when she sees him in bed with Chloe. However, since Teddy insists that Abby doesn't understand the definition of the word "adultery" she probably doesn't fully understand incest either beyond knowing it makes Teddy uncomfortable.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Teddy, knowing that Alchemy is gender fluid and can't be killed, asks her to turn male and solve Chloe's virginity "problem", unaware that she's staying female because she has a crush on him.
  • Invisible to Normals: Angels' halo and wings are invisible to normal humans unless they allow them to be seen.
  • Just Between You and Me: When Teddy is confronting the currently antagonistic Sgt. Slash-Stab on Chloe's whereabouts in the school Teddy plays up his failure and asks how far he was from victory. Slash-Stab tells Teddy gleefully the person is one corridor over, unaware due to circumstances, Teddy has a second body and is mentally linked to the one talking to Slash-stab. What one knows the other knows.
    Teddy: Oh ... Oh darn ... You sure did out fox me! And what's worse is knowing how close I came on finding Chloe... Which was ... how far, exactly?
    Sgt. Slash-Stab: The next corridor over. Knowing that is torture, isn't it?
  • Loophole Abuse: Early in the series, Chloe admits there is a loophole to their Faustian deal: if Teddy can get a girlfriend on his own and it not be Chloe, then the contract will be null and void. On page 597, after many odd and incredible things, Teddy ends up bonding with Naomi over all the weird stuff that has happened and their adventures dealing with magical beings. They set a date for an upcoming night and the magical mark on Teddy's and Chloe's hands dissolves.
  • Magical Girlfriend: Chloe herself.
  • Magic Skirt: Alchemy (in her female form). Justified as she's an Anthropomorphic Personification, though her preferred minidress is so tight it just might work as a magic skirt in the real world.
  • Mark of the Beast: Teddy receives a pentacle on the back of his left hand as a sign of his demonic contract that's normally Invisible to Normals unless Teddy is sexually aroused.
  • Mistaken for Aliens: Naomi came to the conclusion that Teddy and co. were aliens, due to misinterpreting some of their shapeshifting and other odd behavior. The sci-fi B movie she was watching at the time didn't help.
    Naomi: Aliens! It's the only explanation for that horned girl! Except for some sort of Heaven/Hell thing, which is just ridiculous.
  • Mistaken for Pedophile:
    • Poor Teddy falls into this when his little sister finds him in bed with a strange woman.
      Abigail: ADULTERER!
      Teddy: ...Uh, do you even know what that word means?
      Chloe: Oh, I see what's going on. Like 'em young, huh? [sheds a few years] No wonder you're going to Hell!
    • This becomes a Running Gag whenever she bursts in on him seemingly doing sexual acts. Even the angels have raised the accusation.
  • Mister Seahorse: Succubi don't get pregnant. They effectively take the male role, slipping their essence inside their special guy, resulting in what is implied to be a Chest Burster clawing its way out nine months later. Good thing demon boys are resilient.
  • More Deadly Than the Male: Teddy thinks a lifetime of constant bullying by other boys means he can handle anything the girls are going to dish out. He couldn't be more wrong.
  • Morphic Resonance:
    • Teddy starts to wonder what's up when "Chloe's" (actually Pandora in disguise) horns aren't as long as they usually are. And later when he finds her chest isn't as big as it usually is.
    • When Teddy is given Chloe's "cold cure," he finds it's from her blood—which explains why he looks like a wingless, hornless double of her.
    • An attempt to have Chloe mimic Teddy doesn't quite work: the result is a Gender Flip version.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Sergeant Slash-Stab.
  • New Transfer Student: Defied when Chloe suggests she go to school with Teddy to help set him up with a girl, and he tells her that she is not to come in and pose as one. He forgot to forbid her from posing as the new substitute French teacher.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Everything that went south with Teddy's life, like their father cheating on their mother and the cousin that tried to set Jacqui and Ted up when they were kids, but things didn't work out? Chloe caused everything when she accidentally traveled back in time. The cheating? Chloe mistook Ted's Aunt for his Mother and used her powers to increase their lust for each other to get them out of the house so she could help set Jacqui and Ted up. The cousin? Chloe made up that she was Ted's distant relative.When Chloe realizes how much she damaged Ted's life...
    • Teddy when he realizes what his sexual escapade with Lacy triggered a "Stage 2" lose your virginity or die doom spiral in Chloe .
  • No Indoor Voice: The Dread Lord Ba'alln'shigoroth. Which is very bad since Teddy was sneaking through a museum at the time.
    Teddy: Shh! Can you turn down the volume?
    Statue: NO!
  • Noodle Incident:
  • One-Gender Race: Sex demons, i.e. Succubus, are only ever female, and it is stated there is no naturally occurring male equivalent, i.e. typically the Incubus in mythology. That isn't to say there can't be male Succubus, as Chloe states theoretically Succubus can gender-swap, but says when a Succubus does that it becomes nearly impossible to change back (which is why when she masquerades as boy-Teddy she's still anatomically female with Boyish Short Hair).
  • Only Mostly Dead: Chloe accidentally killed Teddy in a succubus frenzy, providing the picture at the top of the page.
  • Out with a Bang:
    • Played straight with Teddy. Helping Chloe solve her "virginity problem" would result in a rather grisly dismemberment.
    • Inverted with Chloe: failing to lose her virginity before it's too late will result in a very painful death for her.
    • Averted with Chloe and a god-tier Teddy now. He has enough stamina and recovery abilities to sustain a two week sex marathon with Chloe and consider it just round one.
  • Protectorate / Distressed Damsel / Distressed Dude: Teddy — not unreasonably — considers their predicament his fault and thus right away swears to protect Chloe. She's quite touched by this, but even if she can't shoot hellfire from hands without doompanties, she's still a demon-girl strong enough to carry him while flying, so they start with her getting him out of the trouble.
  • Parental Incest:
    • A case of step-parental incest when Pandora marries Teddy's dad, and of course doesn't let up on lusting after Teddy for a moment. Of course, nobody except Teddy's dad is actually taking the marriage seriously.
    • Ilsa's torture session with her daughter Pandora gives off this vibe, with Pandora clearly enjoying it.
  • Peek-a-Boo Corpse: Teddy gets stuffed into the refrigerator after Chloe accidentally kills him by giving him a very, ahem, hands-on lesson on how to be a better kisser.
  • Plot Tumour: Teddy was turned into a girl resembling Chloe after receiving an injection of her succubus blood as a cure for sickness, which formed the Plot Arc of Chapter 6. This was brought back several chapters later, ostensibly to protect him from being eaten by Chloe, but as time has gone on Teddy's re-transformation into "Teddi" and the consequences thereof has encompassed most of the subsequent arcs.
  • Pointed Ears: Succubi have these.
  • Psychopomp: Alchemy. She even has a scythe.
  • Retcon: In strip 36, Chloe does not know what "carte blanche" means, but within six strips, she is revealed to have learned French well enough to pose as a French teacher.
  • Running Gag:
  • "It's not a light switch!" said by several characters when asked why they can't get sexually aroused on command.
  • Scarpia Ultimatum: Chloe, in her guise as a French teacher, picks the school's star quarterback and threatens to cut him from the team for poor grades if he doesn't join her for some extracurricular activity. She's hungry, he's convenient, and she also figures that draining his Life Energy might help her pry loose one of the girls he's dating for Teddy. Shortly thereafter, she uses a similar threat on a cheerleader to get her to date Teddy, but the date goes south because of other meddling by Chloe.
  • Screw Yourself: Alluded to when Teddy's split between gorgeous male and female bodies. Male and female Teddy show a lot of interest in each other.
  • Second Law of Gender-Bending: played straight absent the usual justifications. Teddy is faking acceptance for Chloe's sake and calls it an "acceptable loss." if death is his other option.
  • Sex Is Good: Naomi seems to feel this way when hopped up on Golden Wings, responding positively to Teddy's little soldier taking an interest in her.
  • Sex Shifter: Alchemy, an anthropomorphic representation of Death, manifests as either male (Al) or female (Kimmy) depending upon what the soon-to-be-dead person expects or how he/she feels at the moment.
  • Sexy Silhouette: On her first page Chloe appears this way in a flash.
  • Shape Shifter Mode Lock: Pandora has magic lipstick that can do this. She uses it to make Chloe assume her form and trap her in it for a while.
  • Shapeshifting Excludes Clothing: When Lucretia is shrunken down by a misplaced shrink bomb, she loses her clothes too.
  • Shared Universe: With Eerie Cuties, Magick Chicks, and Vampire Cheerleaders.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Teddy was roared at until he made a meaningful wish, which happened to be a subjunctive admission that maybe he'd want a girlfriend... cue a young succubus silhouette appearing. Several readers on the forum immediately asked whether it's going to be "Ah! My Demoness" scenario. And continued until the end of the chapter. In the next, "Succubus 3rd class, of Tartarus Academy" kind of sealed it.
    • Teddy introduced himself as Ted- Theodore Decarlo.
    • Sergeant Slash-Stab has the name Ilsa — just like the "She-Wolf of the SS" in an infamous B-movie.
  • Sleep Cute: The "Chrismas Eve" artwork especially.
  • Social Services Does Not Exist: Teddy's and Abby's father is never at home, preoccupied as he is with racing his cars. Their mother left years ago when her husband cheated on her. Thus, as of the comic's beginning, Teddy and Abby have been raising themselves.
  • Spot the Impostor: Teddy's realizing this isn't the real—HIS—Chloe he's dealing with:
    1. "Chloe" forgot she was supposed to KEEP his soul OUT of Hell (which the real Chloe didn't).
    2. She's got horns that are a LOT Smaller than the real Chloe's.
    3. She's not as endowed as the "real Chloe" either..
    4. He's just realized her hand's NOT glowing—something HIS Chloe had about her hand.
  • Stable Time Loop: Early in the series, Teddy's sister Abigail mentions that their father cheated on their mother, which is why she got a divorce and left. At the time, this was meant as just a bit of background information. Some time later, the portal Chloe took to return to Earth went wrong, sending her several years into the past. Taking advantage of this opportunity, she decides to manipulate the past so the then-younger Jacqui will fall in love with the then-younger Teddy. So she sends who she assumes are Teddy's mother and father away on a romantic getaway. Just one problem: The woman Chloe sent with their father wasn't their mother. It was their aunt (their mother's sister). Right about when their actual mother comes home, Chloe remembers something about Teddy's father cheating with another woman, now known to be their aunt. And Chloe just caused that. Oops. Oh and her pheromone powers are what turned Jacqui into her current boycrazy self, when she was still in the boys are gross phase.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: Both Abigail and Prudence call Teddy "Adulterer" when they witnessed this. Lampshaded by Ted.
    Teddy: Still not the right word.
  • The Talk: Abby is just starting to notice boys, and her parents aren't around, so Chloe and Pandora resolve to give her The Talk. Which might be good if they weren't both succubi. Fortunately they're not excessively evil as sex demons go, but unfortunately they don't understand mortals very well either. Abby ends up with a very skewed idea of what sex and relationships entail, leaving her horrified and causing her to promise her brother she will never let him sleep with a girl ever.
  • Teleporter Accident: When Chloe comes back from a brief jaunt to Hell, the portal glitches and sends her to the past.
  • Tempting Fate: "The girls at my school wouldn't come within ten feet of m-" Teddy doesn't even get to finish the thought before he's glomped from behind.
  • That Was Not a Dream: "You... you're not real... you were a dream!" Nope, she's here and she's a succubus.
  • There Is Only One Bed: Waking up next to a mostly clothed succubus. Probably unusual.
  • Third Law of Gender-Bending: played with. Teddy goes full girl (on the outside, on the inside he insists "I'm still me") because it's a rare opportunity to find out life is like as a girl and he's not willing to waste time hiding when he has bigger fish to fry. Alchemy inverts the trope by adopting her "Kimmy" form whenever she's feeling girly.
  • Title Drop: The last lines in the series is Teddy saying, "You sure like to live dangerously, Chloe."
  • Truth Serums: Gabrielle used one on Naomi and Prudence. Since Prudence is an angel, it ends up having the opposite effect and results in her temporarily becoming a Bad Liar.
  • Unwanted Harem: Teddy accumulates quite a retinue of what appear to be attractive young women. Unfortunately, the nonhumans are mostly potentially lethal to him for various reasons, and the humans either dismiss him as weird or think he's literally an alien.
  • What Did I Do Last Night?: "Chapter 2: Demon In Bed".
    Teddy: Owwwww, my head... what hap— hm? (notices the sleepy succubus half-embracing him, but have good taste to Freak Out quietly).
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Naomi becomes convinced that Teddy and Chloe are extra-terrestrial aliens out to kidnap human women. She gets over this after bonding and befriending the male and female Teddys.
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: Chloe traps a shrunken Lucretia there, causing Lucretia to completely lose it.
  • Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: Sergeant Slash-Stab gives Chloe extra credit, outlining how Chloe has ruined Teddy's life. Naturally, as Chloe was trying to fix it, Chloe is less than pleased with this boost to her grades. Slash-Stab also later congratulates Chloe on sabotaging Teddy and Triana's sort-of-date, calling her treatment of him especially cold. Chloe is again less than pleased.
  • You Keep Using That Word: Teddy gets called an "adulterer" a lot, especially by Abby. Usually, he responds with "not the right word" because he's not actually doing anything - it's an exception when it's an accurate description of what's happening.
