here is a door

And now this door is not itself any longer, not quite.

"Do you have a lot of lizards that need punching?" she asked incredulously. "And I can't really recommend punching as the solution to you violent problems, especially when your opponent is likely to have teeth and claws."
cross_and_bow: (g ~ perhaps)

"It's usually not lizards! I'd say it's usually vampires but they've gotten to be kind of thin on the ground in my town. I'd rather be slinging magic around but I can't get any spells to work, so I have to use what I've got."

"I...cannot recommend randomly murdering vampires, either."
cross_and_bow: (h ~ okay)

"I usually manage to get them before they turn. I have a key to the morgue, I put little splinters of wood in their hearts, everything's dandy."

"You've got a reproductive vampire running around your town draining people? Honey, being a ghoul's no fun, but it's reversible. Death isn't. Do you--where do you live, I can get you the number of a nearby vampire council, they can fix the problem."
cross_and_bow: (i ~ meh)

"What are you talking about?"

"There...are...thirteen kinds of vampire. Only the most powerful five kinds can make new vampires. If one of them just drains someone, without giving them any blood in return, they go corpselike and when they wake up they're a ghoul. Making ghouls is super illegal inasmuch as vampires have separate laws, which basically means that if someone catches you doing it they rip your head off. Literally. If you have a choice between killing a ghoul and letting it kill someone else, by all means put the poor thing out of its misery, but if you know someone is going to become a ghoul you can send for a higher-level vampire, they feed it, it gets promoted to something with higher reasoning faculties."

"That sounds very civilized but I'm afraid we're talking past each other, see, I'm talking about actual vampires and you seem to be talking about your favorite video game."

"I am a vampire," she says, holding up her glass, which still has blood in it. "I think I know how we work."
cross_and_bow: (l ~ business)

[personal profile] cross_and_bow 2015-09-26 06:00 am (UTC)(link)
The girl peers at the glass.

"You aren't doing the face thing, and, who'd have thought I'd ever pull this card in this way, but my boyfriend is a vampire so I too would have this information even if all the books and my Watcher were systematically lying to me. Bar, did you actually give her blood?"

It is actually blood. She is not the sort of vampire you are familiar with.

"Yeah, that much I figured out."

Gloria tips her head back a little, and lets her eyeteeth extend out of her gums to their full length.
"I'm definitely a kind of vampire," she says.
cross_and_bow: (k ~ suspicion)

[personal profile] cross_and_bow 2015-09-26 06:02 am (UTC)(link)


"Noted. Are you a kind who is a sociopath ninety nine point nine percent or is that a way you are also different?"

There's a stake in her hand. How'd that get there?
maggie_of_the_owls: (Default)

[personal profile] maggie_of_the_owls 2015-09-26 06:06 am (UTC)(link)
"That is, apparently, a way we are different. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of assholes who take suddenly having superpowers and a reputation for being monsters as an excuse to live down to the legend, but they're a minority and I'm not one of them." She rubs her neck. "The jerk who turned me was, but I came out of it fine."
maggie_of_the_owls: (Default)

[personal profile] maggie_of_the_owls 2015-09-26 06:08 am (UTC)(link)
"So if your kind of vampire are ninety nine point nine percent sociopaths, why are you dating one?"
cross_and_bow: (h ~ okay)

[personal profile] cross_and_bow 2015-09-26 06:10 am (UTC)(link)
"He's a point one percenter. Actually, not even all the sociopaths are completely uncivilized, there's some who have a kind of sex-work-like business model, I have no quarrel with those even as I cannot vouch for their emotional complexity."
maggie_of_the_owls: (Default)

[personal profile] maggie_of_the_owls 2015-09-26 06:11 am (UTC)(link)
"Well, that's...better than several of the alternatives, I suppose. I can't imagine going for it myself, though."

[personal profile] cross_and_bow 2015-09-26 06:12 am (UTC)(link)
"They make a living on it, it seems consensual, boyfriend says they don't have skeletons in the closet, I leave them be."
maggie_of_the_owls: (Default)

[personal profile] maggie_of_the_owls 2015-09-26 06:13 am (UTC)(link)
"Yeah. I can't imagine they have the problems literal sex workers face."
cross_and_bow: (h ~ okay)

[personal profile] cross_and_bow 2015-09-26 06:13 am (UTC)(link)
"They may or may not have that as a sideline, but I'm not sure they work as vectors for infections and positive they don't work as vectors for babies, so."
maggie_of_the_owls: (Default)

[personal profile] maggie_of_the_owls 2015-09-26 06:16 am (UTC)(link)
"I meant more along the lines of not being assaulted or abused or virtually enslaved. Problems specific to sex workers and not, also, people who have lots of casual sex that is not a transaction. To be honest, the STD and pregnancy thing hadn't even occurred to me. My kind of vampire don't work as vectors for those either."
cross_and_bow: (i ~ meh)

[personal profile] cross_and_bow 2015-09-26 06:18 am (UTC)(link)
The stake goes back into her messenger bag. "I mean, their immunity to that is largely predicated on their willingness to use violence, since if they don't there's no material advantage in the situation to being a vampire except maybe lesser emotional vulnerability? But I imagine the customers think twice, anyway."
maggie_of_the_owls: (Default)

[personal profile] maggie_of_the_owls 2015-09-26 06:23 am (UTC)(link)
"Using violence in self defense to prevent someone else from using violence on you is something most people are willing to do. I'm not sure how vampirism is different from having a tazer in that regard, aside from being more effective."
cross_and_bow: (h ~ okay)

[personal profile] cross_and_bow 2015-09-26 06:25 am (UTC)(link)
"They're vampires - my kind - so I bet it's pretty available to them on an emotional level, but some people with souls freeze up in violent confrontations."
maggie_of_the_owls: (Default)

[personal profile] maggie_of_the_owls 2015-09-26 06:26 am (UTC)(link)
"Vampires don't have souls where you're from? Well, I guess that would explain the sociopathy, if not the point one percent."
