Hello, dear readers.

Last year (sounds like it was a decade ago, doesn’t it?) we got introduced to a charming and deadly Blackguard Sophie. Many of you were curious about a mysterious figure that appeared in an epilogue and wondered who she was. It is time to uncover that secret in yet another Sophie’s adventure! ?

 

Though this story can be read as a stand-alone, it is loosely connected to the previous one by certain events. If you want to brush up on the first Sophie’s tale, it can be found here: The Pale Collector

 

Warning: while this is still a comedy all of Pale Collector stories feature mature, nsfw content, blood, gore and themes that some people might find unsettling. Reader discretion is advised.

 

Special thanks to @SpyVsPie for all the technical advice and suggestions. ?

I love it when the humor in a story is self aware, great job Devianna, you got it right!

Also your NSFW content is getting better and better from entry to entry, did you change the female body somehow :O ?

Also I love the white snow/glow texture looks pretty nice and convincing. 

Great job! Looking forward for more!

Interesting chapter ?

 

We got a quite an action from the Blackguard of Vaermina and showcase of her nightmarish powers.

 

Nudity, spiders and mind affecting things, nightmares in one pack ?

 

She seems charming person.

 

And we a got bit of Clavius and his gang as well, I chuckled when she mistaken the aunty as the daedric prince.

 

I can already see Sophie not gonna like her a lot, especially when they need work together, Im curious what kind of little adventure you being to us ?

Thank you for the praise, Alter!  Yes, I created a custom body for Kaita since I wanted her to stand out more. ?

Both Sophie and Kaita aren't particularly concerned with general societal rules, so making NSFW content with them is definitely much easier and a lot of fun.

I'm happy you're enjoying the story. There's certainly more to come! ?

Kaita really likes to use every trick in her arsenal : confusion, doubt, horror and psychological torture (sometimes physical too).  She's charming, a bit insane and generally terrifying.  But also a lot of fun! ?

 

You are correct - Sophie is NOT happy that she has to work with someone else. Generally speaking Blackguards are solitary beings and only cooperate with others when it suits their needs. Since Sophie is ordered to assist Kaita she cannot simply 'kill the annoying woman' and be done with it. We'll have to wait and see how those two will fare on their quest. ?

Yes, Sophie is back!  ? 

 

The deal Kaita struck with Clavicus seemed to be to easy... Hope it doesn't backfire (like they all do)?

 

The introduction was very interesting from a mystery, horror perspective quickly establishing another badass character.  But I have to focus on the song Kaita sung in the beginning... it LITERALLY would have taken me weeks to write... based on past experience... Good Job!  Can't wait to see where it goes next!

I couldn't stay away from my charmingly evil Blackguard for too long, I guess. So yep yep - Sophie is back! ?

The deal's terms are tied to the completion of the quest and the quest itself is...well, we'll find out exactly what Kaita's assignment involves soon enough. ?

 

Thank you! I'm glad someone picked up on the song.  I completely agree - often times writing of a story poem/song take as much effort as writing the whole chapter, even if it is something seemingly small. ?

 

Glad you're enjoying the story. There's more to come soon(ish). ?

This is a really well put together tale. It's entertaining and the presentation is absolutely beautiful. Great job! 

 

I've recently started my own tale and it's been quite the learning process. I've been checking out the works of others to see how they put everything together and I feel like I've learned a lot just reading and studying yours. ?

 

Looking forward to more!

Omg! Devianna, thats just briliant! The humor, story, blackguard-girls, amazing shots and inter-daedric relationships! Evrything is just great in your own personal cute and facinating style! 
Awating for more ^_^

Thank you very much for your kind words.  I've actually read your chapters and upvoted them but didn't get a chance to comment yet. :classic_ph34r:

 

You have a very pleasant writing style and an interesting protagonist (that smoking break in a little fur coat looked very amusing ?). You are also absolutely correct - every entry is pretty much a learning process.  If you check out the very first works of most of the authors here you'll be able to see how the story set-ups changed, evolved and hopefully improved.

Thank you for stopping by my little blog corner. ? More of Sophie's and Kaita's adventures are in the works. ?

Aww, thank you Crw! ?

You know, Kaita did just massacre that whole fort and tortured some of them just for fun, but I guess it still comes out looking cute in my stories ?.

And I just placed two very powerful and very evil beings together in one team. I can see absolutely no way anything can possibly go wrong there. ??

 

More is coming soon!

Loved the ambience you developed at first, with a mix of horror and sensuality embodied by that nude witch twisting her opponents minds (and bodies) right from the start. Graphically, the ice-like effects were on point, and same for the Daedric-Black guard mode eyes
 (wonder how you did those btw, not sure I asked with Sophie). Interesting symbolism to have her eyes closed for most of the time before, since Vaermina sphere related to dreams and nightmares. The mind torture was also a noteworthy terrifying power. Yet, all that build-up was contrasted in the opposite direction with all the humor you developed since she entered Clavicus' hide, but her whole appreciations of the cave's highlights were priceless. ? As Alter noted, you also seem to be less and less shy regarding sexual content, though it's true there's almost always a comedic catch to it. The adventure part felt a bit uncontested though, but I guess what could be more challenging to a Black-guard than another Black-guard ? Good job  ! :smiley:

 

Malicia : « I wish I could go out like that, with only my boots on my staff. But people would think I'm very disturbed in the head. And I'd be very cold.

Thank you for your kind comment, Tirloque! ☺️ I'm very happy you noticed that Kaita's eyes were closed when she was humming the song while the fort was being massacred. I made those scenes both with the reference to Vaermina's sphere of nightmares and also to the fact that Kaita can sense everything in her surrounding even through the stone walls. It gives her a bit of a predatory feel.

 

The stark contrast between the assault on the bandits and the humorous visit to Clavicus Vile's shrine was intentional. ? Kaita is Chaotic Evil (I should probably start putting the alignment information somewhere in the afterword so the readers won't get too confused) and she really does go from 'murderous and terrifying' to 'Oh, look! A bunny! I want to hug it!' in a matter of minutes. 

 

Some of my stories didn't allow for too much of sexual content due to their structure and plot previously. Plus there were many things that I didn't know how to do.  So I was always relying more on text than on screenshots.  I still do that, of course, but at least now I can add a bit more of the pretty pictures into my tales. I'm glad that the readers seem to like it. ☺️

 

As for adventure - this is just the beginning. Getting Sophie to accept the assignment was never the problem. It's completing it that will turn out to be...interesting. ?

 

Author: Dear Malicia, you shouldn't walk around naked like Kaita. It's very dangerous if you don't have the same daedric powers. And you shouldn't delve into the dark arts. The daedra can be very mean, yes.

Sorry, I forgot to answer this one : the daedric eyes were achieved by using eye glow mod with racemenu + facelight adjustments + ENB tinkering.
