AtoZ2020 - Z is for Zillionaire - #AtoZChallenge

Virginia Waytes' Sexy Stories - AtoZChallenge 2020 - Z

AtoZChallenge 2020


Good morning, Lovelies, sorry this is a bit late - I forgot to type it up yesterday. Have you ever had one of those moments when you were sure you did something and it turned out you did not? That was me πŸ’–.

Welcome to the last day of the #AtoZChallenge.

For this year's AtoZ I am introducing my new podcast and eBooks, with character intros, places and themes from The Manor. The episodes go out every Tuesday so look up E, L, R & X, or just check out the podcast & book pages.


Z is for Zillionaire


Z is for Zillionaire

So Zillionaire is a bit of an exageration, but I needed a word for Z  πŸ˜‚. However, Lucy does have plenty of money. It's not something she has to worry about, which is how she can do what she does with The Manor.

Now The Manor is run like any other business. As far as the government is concerned it is a country club with membership fees and employees etc. It is registered, it pays taxes and it is all above board. Except for the fact that some of the employees are immortal or much longer lived than humans, so there has to be some creativity in the accounting at times.

Lucy is registered as the manager. In the public eye she runs the place, but she does not own it. It's been like this ever since the government got touchy about people passing on their wealth to the next generation. It's one of those annoying things about being an immortal living in a mortal world.

Lucy has money the government knows about, that goes through all the proper channels, and then she has money taken care of by very special accountants, that very few people know about. It's the only way to maintain her fortune without people asking very awkward questions.

Some of the money is invested, some is used in other organisations Lucy has an interest in, some is simply hidden away in the vaults under The Manor in the form of gold and other portable commodities. It's all very organised.

It was Lucy's father who taught her to be prepared when it came to interacting with the human world, and she always makes sure to keep everything organised. She loves The Manor with all her heart, but if it was destroyed tomorrow, she even has a plan for that. After all she is responsible for a lot of lives.

Lucy's motto was "be prepared" long before the boy scouts took it up, and that includes her finances.

She would give her last penny if someone really needed it, but she had measures in place to make sure it never comes to that.

Thank you so much for joining me on this year's #AtoZChallenge. It has been such fun.

I hope you have enjoyed learning all about The Manor and listening to the residents' adventures. The AtoZ may be over, but these adventures will continue, so please, come back every Tuesday for a new podcast episode and a new eBook, and the odd post about The Manor and those who live there. You haven't met everyone yet.

AtoZ2020 - Y is for Yuki-onna (Fuyuko) - #AtoZChallenge

Virginia Waytes' Sexy Stories - AtoZChallenge 2020 - Y

AtoZChallenge 2020


Greetings, Lovelies. I hope you are staying safe and well. Welcome to the second to last day of the #AtoZChallenge - can you believe that we have made it? For this year's AtoZ I am introducing my new podcast and eBooks, with character intros, places and themes from The Manor. The episodes go out every Tuesday so look up E, L, R & X, or just check out the podcast & book pages.

Don't forget that the first eBook in the series is free, so you can get a feel for them, and the podcast is completely free to listen to - not even any ads.

Today I have a character profile and an introduction to a kind of being in The Manor's universe. Enjoy. πŸ’–

Y is for Yuki-onna



Full Name: Fuyuko
Aka: Ko-chan
Species: yuki-onna
Age: unspecified
Hair: black
Eyes: black
Height: 5'7''
Pronouns: she/her


The yuki-onna or snow woman is a rare being from Japan, a yokai. There are many legends of the yuki-onna giving them many different aspects and powers from the ability to turn to a flurry of snow to their immortality, but all agree they have an affinity with the cold.

There is a yuki-onna at The Manor and her name is Fuyuko.

These being are, in fact, a form of energy vampire. They require the life essence of other lifeforms to survive. They can use this feeding to kill if they so choose, leaving a victim looking as if they have been frozen to death. However, they are not inherently evil beings and usually only take a little from their prey, so much so, most would not even notice. If they are crossed, though, they can be extremely dangerous. They are ethereal beings, able to become snow, frost or even ice and, if they want you dead, there is not a lot that can stop them.

Fuyuko is a very private, reserved individual in her personal life, keeping a great deal to herself, although she has nothing against others in principal. However, she has a very different, outgoing persona she uses as part of The Manor's adult entertainment. She often has clients every night, sometimes more than one, so she can maintain herself without endangering any of them.

If there is one weakness for a yuki-onna it is love. When they are in love and loved in return, a yuki-onna can appear to be a normal human, the energy between them and their mate sustaining them completely. However, it also makes them vulnerable, because they will do just about anything for their loved one.

Fuyuko left her home and came to England because of love. She lost her heart to an English pilot just after the Second World War and became his wife. However, when she did not age, he became afraid of her and kicked her out. With nowhere to go, she became a prostitute in London to keep herself alive and met Lucy when there was a spate of unusual, supernatural murders. She helped Lucy figure it out and they became friends. 

Lucy offered to help her get home to Japan, but Fuyuko felt she could not leave until her husband died, even though he had betrayed her. Of course, Lucy offered her a home. It came with no strings, but Fuyuko is quite comfortable with her professional persona, and it makes feeding straightforward. Her husband did die in the early 2000s, but by then, she was settled and remains one of The Manor's residents.

Thank you for reading.

Q. How far would you go for love?

I think love should be a continuation of a person. If it is making you do things you find wrong then it is not love, it is obsession. However, I also think love is a wonderful and great gift that should be cherished and maintained.

AtoZ2020 - X is for seX & Episode 4 - #AtoZChallenge

Virginia Waytes' Sexy Stories - AtoZChallenge 2020 - X

AtoZChallenge 2020


Hello, Lovelies, and welcome to the 4th Tuesday of the #AtoZChallenge and hence, a new episode of the podcast and a new eBook of the episode. While the podcast has all the naughty parts of the episode, the book has all the lovely plot. The book of the first episode is free if you would like to see what I mean.

For this year's AtoZ I am introducing the podcast and eBooks, with character intros, places and themes from The Manor. The episodes go out every Tuesday so look up E, L, R & X, or just check out the podcast & book pages.

If there is one thing important at The Manor, is is sex, so I cheated a little for X and went for seX - although I suppose I could have gone for XXX πŸ’–.

X is for seX & Episode 4


X is for seX

Sooner or later, most things at The Manor come back to sex. While it pretends to be a country club, the establishment is, at it's heart a sex club. There are very few sensual pleasures to which The Manor does not cater.

From the simple desire to have sex with another being to wanting to be humiliated and/or dominated and any other kinks along the way, The Manor can usually provide. There is only one rule, everything must be consensual. This is literally coded into The Manor's foundation magic.

There are a few things that can cause a member to be barred, but in the case of breaking this rule, The Manor itself would see to it. It's hard to return to a place you can't remember and, depending on the nature of the transgretion, Lucy reserves the right to take further action.
  • Some of the residents of The Manor use sex simply as a revenue source. It's about the income. Since no one is charged rent at The Manor, they don't need it for that, but it is always nice to be able to buy things for oneself.
  • Others do it because they simply really, really like it and the income is incidental.
  • Then there are those who use it as a cover for feeding from humans, be is sexual energy, blood or something else. No member is ever harmed, another rule, but sometimes the sex games lead to games of another kind that the members don't usually remember.
Lucy, being part succubus, takes clients for the last two reasons. Never let it be said that she doesn't enjoy her job, but she does need it as well. She believes in a place where beings can be themselves and this applies to sex as much as to anything else.

The Manor may be a sex club, but the last thing Lucy will ever let it be is a centre for exploitation.

Check out the new podcast episode below for some fun sexy werewolf times.

AtoZ2020 - W is for Werewolves - #AtoZChallenge

Virginia Waytes' Sexy Stories - AtoZChallenge 2020 - W

AtoZChallenge 2020


Hello, Lovelies, and welcome to this new week of the AtoZChallenge. We've made it all the way to W - we are so close to the end. For this year's AtoZ I am introducing my new podcast and eBooks, with character intros, places and themes from The Manor. The episodes go out every Tuesday so look up E, L, R & X, or just check out the podcast & book pages.

Today I have another species breakdown for you. So come in, relax and take a look around.πŸ’–

W is for Werewolves


W is for Werewolf

There are more werewolves at The Manor than any other species of supernatural being, but there is a very simple explanation for this: werewolves live in packs. While there are such things as lone wolves, most werewolves to not thrive alone.

Some packs have a very loose structure with the alpha in charge and lieutenants for when the alpha isn't there to deal with something, but mostly the members get on with their lives, just with an extended family to help. Other packs have a more ridgid structure where the alpha rules the other wolves with complete authority using their lieutenants as enforcers.

Wolves have the ability to attain a wolf humanoid form as well as that of the full wolf, with variations in between. In human form they have heightened senses, very fast reflexes and greater strength than a human, this increases in their other forms.

Werewolves have a pack bond that links them all together. This bond is strongest for the alpha, but all wolves feel a connection to others in their pack. Pack bonds can be broken, but this is traumatic to the wolf and can be traumatic to the pack in some cases. Normal pack bonds can be broken by the individual wolf, however, the hardest kind of pack bond to break is one where the alpha is related to the pack member by blood. This requires the help of another alpha to achieve.

Some wolf packs live by old traditions, worshipping the moon goddess, but this is rare in the modern age.

No two packs are quite the same. Some are urban, some rural, but the one thing they all have in common is that they do best as a group.

There are currently ten werewolves in The Manor's pack, Gerry, the alpha, eight others and Joshua, the newest pack member, taken in while running from his uncle, his original alpha. Joshua's presence will change the pack more than they could have imagined. Keep up with The Manor in the Sexy Stories podcast and eBooks to find out more.

Than you for dropping by.

Please do comment below and link me to your AtoZ posts if you are taking part πŸ’–. If you don't know what to say feel free to use to question below for inspiration, but don't feel you have to answer it.

Q. If you were part of a werewolf pack, would you like to be an alpha or a lieutenant, or would you prefer to just get on with your life and let others worry about running the pack?

I'm something of a control freak, so I suspect I would want to be something to do with the leadership, although I'm not sure I would want to be the alpha.

AtoZ2020 - V is for Vampires - #AtoZChallenge

Virginia Waytes' Sexy Stories - AtoZChallenge 2020 - V

AtoZChallenge 2020


Hello, Lovelies. I've always had a soft spot for the letter V, which could have something to do with my love of all things vampire. For this year's AtoZ I am introducing my new podcast and eBooks, with character intros, places and themes from The Manor. The episodes go out every Tuesday so look up E, L, R & X, or just check out the podcast & book pages.

Today I am talking about the iconic supernatural beings, vampires and how they fit in to The Manor's universe. Enjoy πŸ’– and stay safe.

V is for Vampires


V is for Vampire

Vampires are complicated beings, as diverse as the humans from which they usually arise. Lucy is half vampire, the blood drinking kind, the half she gained from her father. He was a powerful human sorcerer, but he was betrayed and turned into a vampire. In this entry I will talking about their species, but there are others, such as energy vampires and even other species of blood drinkers.

Most supernatural creatures have magic only within their own abilities, it does not extend to having free magic to use for spells or rituals, hence Lucy's father's power was severly limited by what happened to him. Lucy was his answer to this, a being created using what magic was available to him, combining usually incompatible species to be more powerful than both, or his human beginnings.

Because of her heritage, Lucy requires blood, but not as often as she requires sex for her succubus aspect. She can sustain herself quite well with a regular small drink.

Normal vampires require more, a pint or so a night as long as they consume normal food as well. If they consume only blood they need more, but doing so is unwise as it can eventually result in an unquenchable bloodlust, the kind of thing that created the vampire horror stories of legend.

Vampire are light sensitive, especially when young, but they do not combust as legend would have us believe. Well-fed they would find it uncomfortable and detrimental to their health after more than half an hour or so. Starving they are likely to smoulder rather than burst into flame.

They have supernatural speed, invulnerability to most weapons, mesmeric powers, great strength, a demonic form, and in some cases, the ability to take the form of bats or wolves. The extent of their powers relies on their bloodline and their age.

As a half vampire, Lucy has a degree of many of these abilities, but not the full demonic form or changing into an animal. She finds bright light uncomfortable, but it not suscpetible to the truly detrimental effects of her species. Frankly she is happy with the balance.

Please do comment below and link me to your AtoZ posts if you are taking part πŸ’–. If you don't know what to say feel free to use to question below for inspiration, but don't feel you have to answer it.

Q. If you could have one power of a vampire, what would it be, and would you be prepared to take one of the disadvantages too?
