~the instinctive, brilliant smile of a woman who knows what feeble creatures men can be~
As you have gathered, my name is JezebelFromHell, but you are welcome to call me Jez. I have always been somewhat of a "troublemaker", but in the best possible way. *winks slyly*
For those of you who do not know Jezebel's story, let me give you a little taste.
Biblical Jezebel sure knew how to stir things up! Jezebel was a princess from an ancient Canaanite nation; she was the daughter of Ethbaal of Sidon. When Jezebel married Ahab, her thirst for power had a chilling effect – she led him to worship Baal and ordered the execution of Yahweh’s prophets. A woman of fierce energy, she tried to destroy all those who opposed her.
Elijah rightfully foresaw God’s justice in this situation; his word sent chills down their spines as he predicted an unforgettable drought that would befall them all at once.
Sometime later Elijah had the Baal priests slain after they lost a contest with him to see which god would heed prayers to ignite a bull offering, Baal or Yahweh. When Jezebel heard of the slaughter, she angrily swore to have Elijah killed, forcing him to flee for his life (1 Kings 18:19–19:3).
Jezebel had quite a twisted approach to leadership and quickly became known for her notoriously cruel acts -one of the most famous was in 1 Kings 21. Adjacent to Ahab’s palace was a vineyard, which he coveted; it belonged to a commoner, Naboth of Jezreel (an ancient city at the foot of Mount Gilboa, probably the site of the modern Israeli settlement of the same name). When Naboth refused to part with his vineyard (“the inheritance of my fathers”), Jezebel falsely charged him with blaspheming “God and the king,” which led to Naboth’s death by stoning. Elijah confronted Ahab in the vineyard, predicting that he and all his heirs would be destroyed and that dogs in Jezreel would devour Jezebel.
A few years later, Ahab perished in battle with the Syrians. Jezebel lived on for approximately another ten years. Elijah’s successor, Elisha the prophet, equally determined to end Baal worship, had a military commander named Jehu anointed to be king of Israel, an act that provoked civil war, for Jezebel’s son Jehoram (Joram) then ruled. Jehu killed Jehoram at the site of Naboth’s property and then went to Jezebel’s palace. Expecting him, she adorned herself for the occasion, decked out in her finest clothing and jewels. Looking down from her window, she taunted him, and Jehu ordered her eunuchs to throw her out the window, which they did. Later, when he commanded that she be properly buried as a king’s daughter, it was discovered that dogs had eaten most of her body.
Jezebel’s notorious name still resonates today; her story is one of Machiavellian scheming, vengefulness, and heartless cruelty.
The term Jezebel has been used for centuries to refer to women who are seen as immoral or sexually threatening. Part of Jezebel's reputation as a seductress comes from a verse in 1 Kings that describes her applying cosmetics in preparation for her death.
In Western culture, Jezebel, has come to refer to a wicked, alluring, headstrong, seductive woman who takes control of her sexuality.
Does anyone actually read text on a profile? It does not seem as if they do, so I wonder why I bother. Later in this section, I clearly and unequivocally state that I despise receiving non-substantive messages from people I do not know such as "hi" or "how are you?" I also state that if you are one of those VR males who enjoys messaging every female profile on the site with the same canned message, I will block you. I have several profiles on this site, so when I receive cut and pasted messages on several profiles, I become irritated and annoyed. Irritated and annoyed JezebelFromHell=your ass blocked. I am not here looking for a date or to meet people who do not take the time to put together two thoughtful sentences when messaging me. It is that simple, but I digress.
I generally do not post many details about my personal life on my profiles. Over time, I have shortened this section and will continue to edit it. As with most people, I have both hard and soft personality traits. I am often kind and express a caring attitude toward others. I am compassionate, considerate, and enjoy extending assistance to someone in need. Still, I am a dominant (not domineering) person. I do not put up with excuses and cannot stand insensitivity, idiocy, or ignorance. I loathe drama, although occasionally, I am grudgingly swept into it based on a need to defend myself or others. I am fiercely protective of those I love, including myself. I know how to listen and am confident and fully self-sufficient.
Additionally, I am a private person and carefully choose with whom I share my life. I am an introspective introvert and I ordinarily find it hard to confide in others I meet online. While VR is near and dear to my heart, I have found it particularly difficult to trust most who frequent this website. Most people who know me apart from VR think I must be kidding when I tell them I am an introvert. If you asked someone to describe me who knows me reasonably well offline, they'd presumably characterize me as outgoing, extroverted, and social.
I am an attorney by profession and have practiced for more than 21 years. For 21 years, I was a litigator. Two and a half years ago, I closed my private practice and accepted a non-litigation position at one of the nation's largest law firms. I work in risk management which means I advise attorneys regarding potential conflict issues with clients and with business relationships. I am responsible for assisting with the review, identification, and resolution of potential conflicts issues with respect to lateral candidates and firm growth opportunities. I also ensure compliance with ethical professional rules of responsibility and risk. I work with my firm's conflicts department, recruiting department, and partners. Since this is a new position in my firm, I have been responsible for establishing and training others on the process I use to effectively screen new lateral associate and partner hires. If this sounds complex, that is because it is.
I have been on VR for about 10 years now. I do not remember the exact details of how I came to find VR; I just know that I did and was immediately drawn to the site. Despite taking many breaks from logging in, I have always returned to the site. It is a place where I feel free to express myself in whatever way I choose. Although VR has changed drastically, I still love it here and enjoy freely expressing my personality's darker sides.
During my time on VR, I have had two Covens. The first, I established immediately following leveling my main profile, Theodora, to Sire. VR was much more active at that time. Path of Ecstacy was a great deal of fun, with playful banter, sarcastic sexual quips, and fun threads where all type of information was exchanged. I have had a Mentorship since I reached level 80, which was also very active for quite some time. When first established the Mentorship was called Succubus Seductions. When I returned to VR a few years ago, I rebranded the Mentorship, Violet Dreamscapes. I overhauled the member pages and the forums. Sadly, Covens and Mentorships on this site are not active as they once were.
Because my life off VR is of a serious nature, you will find me to be quite silly, often joking. I am also quite perverse and have never met a dirty joke I did not like. Although I am difficult to offend, I have a few ground rules. I expect to be treated with respect. If you respect me, I will respect you. The converse is also true. If you disrespect me, expect to be disrespected in return. I do not put up with people's bullshit, delusions, name-calling, whining, or drama. I loathe misogynistic misanthropes; I do not think journals of women's bouncing breasts are amusing or appropriate. While they might well be within the TOS on this site, they are tasteless and vulgar. I am not a vampire or were-creature and cannot turn you, so please do not ask me to do so. I am also not here to edit or evaluate your profile, so please do not ask me to do this either. I come here in my free time for enjoyment and to talk to a few close friends that remain on the site. Do not flirt with me, period. I am in a long-term relationship.
Also, do not message me and simply say "hi." I despise non-substantive messages. If you are one of those VR males who likes to message every female on the site, I will block you. If you call me, my friends, pets, or family names, I will block you. Cancer created the block button for a reason and I do not hesitate to utilize it when needed.
In my minimal spare time, I enjoy creating. I love to develop new and different coding and delight in creating exceptional, one-of-a-kind graphics. Coding and creating graphics are one of the ways I express my more creative side. I am classically trained on the violin although I do not play much anymore. I use a violin hand-crafted by my grandfather prior to his passing. It contains a scroll from a famous violinist's violin; my grandfather acquired it many years ago in New York at an auction.
If you add me, rate me, or add my journal, please let me know so that I can do the same. Thanks for visiting my profile, and if you have read this far, compliments to you!
Rating... I probably have far too much to say about rating; suffice it to say that I tend to give what I get. In the past, I have rated compassionately, generally giving a 10 to those who attempted to decorate their profile. You see, I realize that not everyone is a coder by profession or has the equipment and software to code a profile elaborately. I was always conscious of that when I rated. However, recently, I have rethought my rating policy due to some unnamed individuals rating low. Now I give what I get. Why should I be bothered to help you if you won't help me?
The VR Manual states: “A valid rating is between 1 and 10 with 1 being the lowest score and 10 being the highest. How you choose to rate a profile is totally up to you. Different members will have different criteria for profile rating. When you rate a profile, it will have more weight the higher your status level.”
My typical rating is not random. I do have certain criteria that I utilize when deciding how to score a profile. If you use a tiny font that I have to find a microscope to read, I am not rating your profile high. Likewise, if you utilize a color scheme that makes it difficult, if not impossible, to read your profile, you will receive a low rating. Profiles with poor grammar and/or poor spelling will garner a low rating. If you do not possess a basic knowledge of grammar and spelling, there are free sites such as Grammarly that you can utilize. There is no excuse for poor grammar or misspelled words on a profile, in my opinion. If you make changes or edits to your profile, you are always welcome to ask me for a re-rate which I may or may not do.
If you need assistance with graphics or coding, you are always welcome to reach out. Because I love to code and make graphics, I am usually happy to share my knowledge. I also do not use expensive software to create my graphics. Everything I have learned regarding coding and creating graphics is self-taught, with occasional help from a few dear friends.
Although I detest focusing on negative matters, I need to address those on the site who are spiteful and purposefully rate profiles low. From dealing with children for years, I have found it best to ignore their tantrums and histrionics. You are entitled to your opinion as I am entitled to mine. However, I recommend seeking counseling from a licensed psychotherapist; therapy is even available online now.
I am the proud Mentor Mistress of Whips & Chains Mentorship
Thanks for stopping by. If you add me or favor my journal, please let me know so that I may return the favor.

Without reflection one does not know from daily life that their subtle transgressions divulge their true nature. Reflection then becomes the bitterest reminder of who we are and who we will become…~bows~
