Title: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 18, 2019, 09:49:46 AM
1925, Upstate New York, a winding road in the Adirondack mountains.

It's been a harsh winter. The Juniper siblings were journeying together, heading home from the city where they'd acquired the new silk their parents needed for the haberdashery when the blizzard started to pick up. The eldest, losing control of the car in the conditions, put it into a ditch on  the side of the road. Cold, no way to contact anyone, they wandered into the woods, hoping to find a cabin or any kind of shelter in the bleak mountains when they come upon the long driveway to a prestigious mansion that you would find on the outskirts of the city, not here in the absent forest. Against their better judgement and with no other options, the siblings find themselves at the mercy of the  Master of the house, whoever they may be, until the storm has cleared.

(Okay, so I mentioned this before but here we go, Kira said something about a vampire RP a couple days ago and I've been thinking about it since then, also reminiscing on an old Beauty and the Beast style RPG we had going that I wanted to sort of recreate. Instead of the normal victorian/medieval backdrop, I thought the Jazz Age might find itself as a fun new way to play it out.

I will play Mistress of the house, a Vampire. My vampire rules: no garlic, no crosses, no sunlight, can turn into a bat, drinks mammal blood to feed, being turned involves first being bit and then choosing to bite back. If you don't bite back, you die. Easy peasy. Just wanted to make things clear since I know everyone's got different rules in mind usually.

Looking for players for  the siblings (at least two, three Max) as well as house servants who may or may not be vampires also, up to you. I will also play a few servants here and there when needed.

If there's interest, I'll post a card form.

Could I possibly join and be a sibling?
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 18, 2019, 01:33:34 PM
Yes, that's all three siblings claimed. Everyone else, you are servants. Bow down!

Name: Mistress Margaret "Peggy" Alexander
Age: 68, but appears as 20, when she was turned
Species: Vampire (for 48 years)
Appearance: Starkly white blonde long hair, eyebrows just a tad bit darker, dark green eyes with yellow halos around the iris, pale skin from missing the sun for the last fourty years, lips stained red permanently, 5'11, thin with longer legs
Personality: Extremely poised, quiet, kind-hearted to her servants, distant as first, but when broken down, is known to give a gentle chuckle
Backstory/Other: When Margaret was 20, she was drugged by her father's dearest friend and turned into a vampire by him. She proceeded to kill the family's horses and her brother after her turn as she started to acclimate herself to being a vampire without the man's guidance since he was terrified of her parents finding out. Her family was convinced she was possessed, so she was locked away for years until she grew into her abilities and learned to control her hunger. She convinced her family that she was better and became their heir, outliving everyone else. She eventually had everything moved out into the house in the middle of the mountains so she would be further away from people. She keeps a house of servants, descendants of her family's servants, all of which are sworn to secrecy and some of whom wanted their chance at immortality. She's had two lovers, neither of which allowed themselves to be turned, and now she lives by animal's blood.

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 18, 2019, 03:40:07 PM
Ok, fastforward... what, almost 20 minutes now? Here we go:

Name: Clara Malone (born Myrtle Scott, previously Myrtle Lochlan)
Age: presents as 19, the age at which she was turned. Actual age would be 33.
Species: vampire, 14 years
Appearance: very pale skin from a lack of sunlight, yellow-gold eyes framed by very dark, long eyelashes which was a trait that carried over from her human days. Clara has black wavy hair that she keeps out of the way in a ponytail; her hair is nearly breast-length, and always appears slightly messy. She has a mole just below her lip on the left side of her face. Her lips have taken on a deep red colouring from the intake of blood over the past 14 years.
Personality: Clara has an independent streak, but mostly, she’s quiet and avoids conflict when possible. She enjoys the idea of permanent youth, but misses being part of society; as a result, she tries to keep up with society’s fashion trends.
Backstory/Other: Clara - then Myrtle - was married off to a man named Silas Lochlan when she was sixteen. The marriage was not her choice, and though Silas was a decent enough man, he was quite a bit older than her (nine years her senior), and their interests were very different. One day when she was sent out to get some food from the market, she met a man named Christian Malone, who was new in town. They made pleasant conversation, and then she left to go back to Silas. She met up with him again when she went to get some new fabric to sew clothes from, and that was when they drew the conclusion that it was fate that they met twice in such a short amount of time. They quickly became friends, especially when it became apparent that Christian and Silas worked together. Eventually, the friendship turned into an affair when Clara realized that she had much more in common with him than Silas. Silas eventually became suspicious of them once it became clear that Clara had no romantic interest in him, and tried to catch them in the act of cheating. Instead, he caught Christian drinking the blood of a horse. Quickly realizing what he was, he set a fire, trying to burn Christian, only Clara happened to be there as well. Once the fire was burning out of control, Silas ran away, leaving Clara and Christian to die. Christian managed to get them out of the burning barn, but Clara had inhaled too much smoke and was dying anyway. In an attempt to save her life, he bit her and she bit him back, effectively turning her. Unfortunately, the sun began to rise by that point, and Christian began to burn anyway. Clara, not fully transformed yet, was able to get to the vegetable cellar at the behest of Christian and hide there, but Christian perished. After that, Silas told everyone his wife had died in a fluke fire (truly believing that she had died), and Clara left with a new name, Clara Malone, a name bearing the same initials as that of her lover, Christian Malone. Clara now works in Mistress Alexander's home, a place she came across by accident, as a cleaner.

Name: Charles Xavier Juniper
Age: 20
Species: Human
Appearance: Charles has wavy, dirty blonde hair that is often very close to brunette in the winter months. He keeps it slicked back for the most part and is rarely ever seen without a newsboy cap on. He's decently tall, slim build, and seems to have an ever-present smile. His eyes are hazel, often appearing more green than brown. He has a few freckles but they've started fading over time as he's indoors more often than not these days.
Personality: Charles is a massive laugh. Or at least he likes to think he is. It's rather difficult for him to take any situation seriously, so he doesn't. It may be middle child syndrome or may just be him, but he's often loud which usually demands attention, even if he's not really meaning to. He can also be quite a hot-head.
Backstory/Other: He wants to be a journalist, so he's been studying and has started a job at a newspaper company. He wants to move to the city on his own to really get started and work for the big papers.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 18, 2019, 04:47:13 PM
Name: Margaret "Maggie" Charlotte Juniper
Age: 18
Species: Human
Appearance: Maggie has purer golden blonde hair than her brother, and it's got more of a curl to it, sitting around shoulder length that she keeps neatly styled. She's tall enough, about 5'6", but still stands shorter than Charles. She has the same green hazel eyes as him and has quite a few freckles, as she spends as much of her day outside as she can.
Personality: She has a sunny and sociable personality, aspiring to one day end up in a motion picture, so she loves to network herself as best she can. However she has grown up slightly reserved when not in a situation she feels she has the upper hand, especially with two older brothers.
Backstory/Other: She dreams of working as a model and later in the motion pictures, however being the youngest she hasn't gotten the opportunity she dreams of. Still, she tries her best to get "discovered" and secretly wants to move to the city with Charles to get a career.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 18, 2019, 05:22:03 PM
Name: Thomas Juniper
Age: 22
Species: human
Appearance: Taking after his mother's side of the family, Thomas has wildly curly hair the colour of dark chocolate. He tries to tame it has a mind of its own. Thomas has grey eyes that can appear either blue or green depending on the light. He's slightly taller than his brother with a similar build.
Personality: Thomas can come across as serious, bossy and stubborn, especially when interacting with his siblings (his brother's inability to take anything seriously drives him up the wall). Despite these characteristics, he is also a gentle, patient and selfless individual who would do almost anything for his family or people he cares about. With strangers, it takes him a while to warm up to them, as he struggles with opening up.
Backstory/Other: While his siblings have grand aspirations of moving to the city, Thomas  is content to stay near home where he will one day take over the family business. Part of him resents his siblings for having the freedom to go off and follow their dreams while he feels obligated to honour his father's wishes.

Name: Raphael (Ralph) Jamison.
Age 70, appears 23.
Species: Vampire, for 47 years.
Appearance: Ralph is a tall, thin-framed man, with short red hair, a short moustache and blue-green eyes. He is almost always seen wearing an elegant, but modest three-piece suit, often in shades of grey or brown.
Personality: Raphael usually is a quiet, reserved man, of deep, abiding loyalties, gentle disposition, and an intense dislike of violence. However, he is also capable of an intense, cold rage when forced, and holds grudges as long as his loyalties,
Backstory/Other: Raphael's parents worked hard to give him an education, which he spent well, working hard himself to farther his chances. In addition to several American colleges, he crossed the Atlantic to study in England and France. Once he returned, he found them ill, and took a job at an illegal speakeasy in order to support them. After their deaths, he was walking at night, when he was attacked by Someone, who bit his neck, and fed on him. Left to die, He was found by a patron, who allowed him to drink, saving him. Ralph was given Peggy's address by the vampire who had saved him, who had been her father's friend. He now works as her butler.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 19, 2019, 03:38:46 AM
Chaotic, my only comment is that your age doesn't line up really and that Peggy wouldn't have turned anyone to be her servant until  she had her own home, probably only like 20 years ago.

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 19, 2019, 05:07:51 AM
Hopefully this is okay

Name: Nicholas "Nico" Ofstedt
Age: Turned at age 22, actually 48
Species: Vampire (turned 26 years earlier)
Appearance: The stereotype of a suave, elegant vampire is shattered when one meets Nico; tall and lanky, his clothing, posture, and over-all mannerisms are quite grungy and devil-may-care. Other than that he is quite unremarkable, with short brown hair and light eyes that are almost always hidden behind dark sunglasses, even at night.
Personality: Nico is... a handful. Brash and confident, he isn't afraid to stand up to any challenge (regardless of how stupid it may be). He's the sort of man one would expect to be a great joy to have a few drinks with... unless you're human. He greatly dislikes humans.
Backstory/Other: All he remembers about being turned was being drunk, stumbling out of a bar, and trying to pick a fight with a stranger in an alley. Clearly, said stranger had a cruel sense of humour, for after attacking Nico he decided to turn him and then left, leaving Nico behind to try and piece together the ins and outs of being undead. Miraculously, he managed to survive, traveling across the country, leaving dead humans and animals in his wake. Eventually he got bored of all the bloodshed (though mostly because of having to constantly be on the run because of it) and found himself permanent residence in Peggy's home, working as the groundskeeper.

Charles' teeth were chattering from the cold, which was all he could seem to worry about as he stared at the large doors of the manor house. He really couldn't care less about what it was doing way out here, because he really didn't understand what he and his siblings were doing way out there.
"On the bright side, if they dont let us in and we freeze our toes off we can just replace them with carrots," he said through his shivering and proceeded to knock on the heavy doors.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 19, 2019, 09:03:22 AM
Peggy sat up tall from where she was lounging on her chaise in tthe library enjoying a cocktail of whiskey and blood when she heard the knock at the door. She looked around her and then down at her journals. She hadn’t sent anyone out in this whether. She pressed a buzzer under her side table and then readjusted her glasses back on her face, “Someone to the door please,” she called.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 19, 2019, 09:13:08 AM
Thomas grunted and rolled his eyes, "Not really the time joking around Charles," he said. He was overwhelmed by guilt; he kept replaying the accident in his head. All the things he could have done differently to stop the car from plunging into the ditch. He looked at the door, hoping whoever lived there would help them.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 19, 2019, 09:17:26 AM
Clara heard Peggy’s request and headed down to the door. She peered out of the peephole only to see three young people (though realistically, they were around the age she appeared at) standing there. She opened the door slowly. “Hello,” she said.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 19, 2019, 09:55:27 AM
Charles made a face at his brother and turned his attention to the door as it opened, laying on the most cheerful smile he could muster. "Hello! This your place? Real nice, truly. Listen, we're in a bit of a bind as you can probably tell and were hoping you could help us out, if you'd be so kind," he explained while shoving his hands as far into his pockets as they'd go.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 19, 2019, 10:01:06 AM
Peggy has gotten up, tying the black silk robe she was in tighter as she made her way to just to the entry way to the library, listening in. She chuckled to herself silently as they assumed it was Clara was the house’s owner. Peggy quickly went back inside the library, downing her drink and prsssing the buzzer again, “I’ve left a glass in the library.” She announced for the help and then went out the opposite entrance, heading for her dressing room to acquire clothing.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 19, 2019, 10:21:15 AM
"Not my place," Clara said, "but the lady of the house is indeed here. Would you like to come in?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 19, 2019, 11:46:07 AM
"Yes, please!" Charles said quickly and moved to go inside the house.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 19, 2019, 12:03:43 PM
Thomas was not near as eager to enter the home as his brother; he could not shake the feeling in the pit of his stomach. Something was different about this place, and not just because it was hidden in the middle of the forest. He supposed they really had no other choice but to put their trust in whoever owned the home. "Yes, thank you," Thomas replied politely before following Charles inside
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on January 19, 2019, 12:13:36 PM
Ralph heard Peggy's call, and stepped over to collect the glass, before returning to his work, determining what groceries where needed.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 19, 2019, 12:34:20 PM
Peggy cascaded down the stairs in a black evening gown and strings on strings of fine gold and pearls. She looked at the trio of humans that entered her foyer and let out with a loud voice, “Welcome.” She arrived at the bottom, heels clicking and stopped, tilting her head, “What brings you to my neck of the woods?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 19, 2019, 12:40:47 PM
Charles had been turning in a circle to take in the house, removing his hat in the process and leaving his hair ruffled. He turned around when he heard the voice on the stairs, and his eyes widened.
"We must've missed the party memo, my apologies," he said, flashing a bright smile her way.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 19, 2019, 12:42:53 PM
Nico had been on the roof, clearing off some of the snow build up, when he'd seen the trio approached. He watched from his perch as they were brought into the building, curling his lip in disgust. Humans were so smelly. He hoped they didn't stick around long, or they'd stink up the entire place for weeks.

Thomas gazed up at the woman as she walked down the stairs towards them, momentarily stunned into silence. "we...we had an accident due to the storm. Our car crashed into the ditch," He explained
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 19, 2019, 01:10:31 PM
“Well that’s no good. I’m very sorry to hear that your car has crashed. The storm had looked awful. When the snow starts to clear, I’ll see what my man Nico can do about your car. In the mean time, please, come let me fix you tea and coffee,” Peggy said as she glided toward the kitchen. “I’m Margaret. I go by Peggy. You are?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 19, 2019, 01:41:06 PM
Charles watched her, head slightly tilted. He was starting to wonder just what they'd gotten themselves into.
"I'm Charles," he said, glancing over his shoulder at the entrance before he followed.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on January 19, 2019, 01:41:52 PM
"Unexpected guests, Ma'am?" Ralph asked, entering the room.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 19, 2019, 01:44:45 PM
"That would be greatly appreciated," Thomas said politely, though he was growing increasingly troubled about their situation. He would have liked to get him and his sibling back home rather than trapped in a strange house in the middle of nowhere. He followed the woman to the kitchen despite his worry, "and I'm Thomas. This is our sister Maggie," he said, motioning to his little sister.

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 19, 2019, 01:53:00 PM
Peggy turned on the gas and then carefully lit a match to it, shaking it to put out the match before setting a kettle over it. She looked to Ralph, “Yes, please have two rooms readied and set out two sets of men’s pajamas and one of my night gowns for the young Miss.” She then pulled down tea cups from the cabinet before looking back at the siblings, “We don’t get many visitors out here. The house will be happy to have someone to help other than me. I’m owner of the house, sole proprietor”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 19, 2019, 02:00:37 PM
"Oh, that's very kind," Charles said as she mentioned the pajamas and rooms for them.
"You run this whole place yourself then?" He asked.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 19, 2019, 02:23:18 PM
Clara smiled at the guests. She was still relatively new, and seeing as there wasn’t much in the way of visitors, she still wasn’t entirely sure what to do. The siblings seemed like nice people though. “Perhaps we could give them a tour?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 19, 2019, 02:31:33 PM
Maggie stared around, the apprehension she had initially felt gone. “It’s very kind of you to shelter us here,” she spoke up, smiling back at the female servant. The house was truly huge.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 19, 2019, 02:39:49 PM
“After they warm up,” Peggy told Clara and chuckled, “I told you everyone would be excited to see you.” She took teabags out of a tin, wrapped in silk pouches, “India, 1895, Marsala Chai, so it has some delicious spices to warm you right up,” Peggy said and then placed a tea bag in each cup before pouring water from the kettle into the three pristine china cups. She then brought out a pale yellow sugar bowl, painted with elephants and flowers. “Help yourself.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 19, 2019, 02:43:08 PM
"You travel much?" Charles asked, eyeing the tea and sugar bowls.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 19, 2019, 02:45:39 PM
Maggie reached out right away, excited to taste something so exotic and special. She sighed in relief as warmth filled her with the first sip. “Oh you must try this,” she urged her brothers.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 19, 2019, 03:35:28 PM
“Unfortunately my condition doesn’t allow me to leave the house much, so I like to bring pieces of the world to me,”  Peggy told them as she watched them drink the tea and delight over it.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 19, 2019, 03:42:46 PM
Thomas gladly took a cup for himself, eager for anything to warm up a bit. He took a sip after blowing on the tea to cool it down a bit. “This is delicious, thank you very much,” he said.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 19, 2019, 03:51:08 PM
Nico sauntered into the room, shaking the snow from his coat, staring daggers at the three intruders. "Snow's cleared, for now," he said to Peggy. "But I'll probably have to check again in an hour."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 19, 2019, 03:54:59 PM
Charles took one for himself, holding it in his hands to warm them before he drank any. "Yes, thank you. This is very kind," he reiterated his siblings gratitude.
His gaze turned on the man that entered and he immediately frowned when he saw the way he was looking at the three of them.

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 19, 2019, 03:55:33 PM
“Thank you Nico. You’re a treasure, truly. I hate this weather,” Peggy pouted at him playfully and then took notice of his mood. “Thomas, Maggie, and Charles are our guests and will be treated as such. When the snow stops, I’d like you to see to their cart. It’s in a ditch, I imagine on that roadway on the East.”

Nico snarled, once again casting a heated glance at the humans. "With all due respect, keeping them here is a mistake." Unless she meant for them to be food, though he'd never personally witnessed Peggy partaking from humans.

Maggie raised her eyebrows, unused to somebody saying such a rude thing right in front of her. “Your mistress is doing us a kind favour, and we will surely find a way to pay her back for her generosity,” she told him, trying to be diplomatic.

Post by: ChaoticRhymer on January 19, 2019, 04:12:49 PM
"That's enough Nico." Ralph said quietly, moving to obey Peggy's instructions. "She has welcomed them as guests, and they will be treated as such."

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 19, 2019, 04:24:52 PM
"I do not take orders from you," Nico snapped at Ralph. "But I suppose if the Mistress wishes it, I've no choice but to let them stink up the place," he grumbled, turning to leave the room, wanting to be as far away from the humans as he could.

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 19, 2019, 04:29:31 PM
Peggy snapped her fingers for him to stop walking away from her, "You will do as your told or you will find yourself in the garage tonight. I will not be disrespected in front of our guests,"  she said very calmly while looking directly at Nico, "If you have an actual argument, you may present it later this evening or in a note, but I have welcomed many people into my company because they were lost and needed someone, I am not about to starting turning people away now," she told him, subtly reminding Nico where he was from. She stood tall, "Once you're finished your drink, Clara and I will take you on a short tour while we give Ralph time to ready your rooms."

Thomas eyed the perturbed man suspiciously as he sipped his tea; the sooner the storm stopped the better. "a tour would be very nice; this is a beautiful home," he commented, though there was something odd about it that he could not put his finger on.

"He's a delight," Charles muttered into his tea as he sipped it. "A tour'd be great. I wouldn't want to get lost in this place, it's huge!"

Charles smiled back at her, though it was half-hearted. He had no intention of staying here long enough to get used to anything, and he could only assume his siblings were on the same page.

“Alright then, whenever you’re ready, we’ll start with the library,” Peggy told them. She was planning in her mind where to take the visitors. Making notes of areas where they would be unwelcome.

Post by: kristina-la on January 20, 2019, 05:00:11 AM
Thomas took another sip and the placed his cup back on the table, leaving the last sip. He had always disliked the last few sips of tea, when it would grow cold. "I think we're ready," he said after casting a brief glance at his siblings

Post by: Mara-la on January 20, 2019, 05:04:12 AM
Clara smiled at them. "Then to the library, we shall go," she said. She turned towards a grand door, opening it and beckoning them to follow.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 20, 2019, 05:04:33 AM
Maggie nodded, setting her teacup down as well, reluctant to leave such a pretty piece of art. “You have your own library?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

Charles sighed and looked at his only partially finished tea before he set it down to follow the others.

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 20, 2019, 05:52:14 AM
Peggy went into the library with them and grinned at Maggie, “like I said, I have to bring the world to me. I’ve acquired many books over the years. Read all but a row on the west end. Those are my works in progress,” she teased, “I’ll finish reading them soon though so I should send for more.”

"It's nice," Charles said, turning in a circle as he took it all in. It was really amazing, but he couldn't find the words.
"How have you read this many?" He asked in awe. She didn't look any older than him, but he couldn't imagine spending his whole life just reading.

“I suppose I’m just a fast reader,” Peggy told him as she picked up the book from her end table and flipped the pages, taking a breath of them, “And I don’t venture out. I don’t trifle myself with things like sports and gardening and car rides.”

Post by: kristina-la on January 20, 2019, 06:30:46 AM

“I haven’t minded. I have enough money from my parents that I needn’t really worry about getting bored. And I have others here with me,” Peggy told Thomas and then smiled softly at him, “My skin is very sensitive to the sun.

"that is most unfortunate," Thomas said as he followed them into the next room, "There is so much beauty outside...though I must admit this place is certainly not lacking in that department," Thomas said. The next room was just as exquisite as the former.

“If I’m ever in the city Charles, you will be the first to know, I promise,” Peggy teased and then looked at Thomas and sighed out. She knew she missed out on many beautiful things because of the aversion to sunlight. She took a deep breath, “This is just my study. Like the library, but without all the books,” she joked. She then stood tall, “If the storm persists and we need a letter sent out for you, this is where I have the stationary.”

Post by: kristina-la on January 20, 2019, 07:43:20 AM
while their hostess had been nothing but kind and gracious, Thomas still couldn't hope for the storm to cease as soon as possible. "Well, let's hope the storm does not continue long enough to make that necessary," Thomas said, not meaning to sound rude but it may have come across that way. He was exhausted, chilled to the bone, and consumed by guilt. He was trying to make the best of their situation, but it was difficult.

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 20, 2019, 07:54:57 AM
Peggy stopped as she had been walking, “If you wish to find your way home in the storm, no one will keep you here Thomas,” she told him, eyes and manner cold.

Peggy looked him over and then nodded her head, “Alright then. You’ve already seen the foyer and the kitchen. If you follow back through, you’ll find yourself in the greenhouse. Nico’s second home really” she teased. She then looked at Clara and nodded, “That’s true as well, we can stop the tour if you wish to rest”

Ralph entered the room. "Everything as you said Ma'am." He said, smiling without showing his teeth. "Is there anything else?"

(I assume that a vampire's fangs are visible when they show their teeth, right? Also, do they have reflections?)
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 20, 2019, 09:13:43 AM
(I usually like the idea that vampires have retractable fangs. Also, no. No reflections. Which is why there are probably very few mirrors in the house)

Peggy smiles at Ralph and nodded, “Thank you and then looked at the trio of siblings, “So? Would you like to dine with me this evening or in your rooms?”

Post by: Emma-la on January 20, 2019, 09:26:33 AM
Maggie felt a chill run down her spine at how quickly theirs hosts demeanour could change. Something about this place felt off, and she certainly didn’t want to offend Peggy. “If you wouldn’t mind us intruding on your dinner of course we’ll dine with you.”

He'd been told to wait until the snow cleared up, but Nico would be damned (ha) before he settled in inside when humans were about. So, looking for any excuse to get away from them, he went out to retrieve their vehicle. He found it easily, even in the blizzard, and pulled it out of the ditch with his bare hands. It was an ugly piece of junk, in his opinion. Should have just left it. But he had been ordered to bring it back and so he did, driving it into the garage behind the mansion.

Thomas couldn’t help but wonder how they acquired so much food, being in the middle of nowhere. “You are pretty far from any towns. Where does your food come from?” He questioned as he started towards the dinning room

"I have my own barn in the back, the animals are probably cozy near a fire tonight, one of my men watching them, but I also get standard things brought here. We...exchange things. He brings me  groceries, I give him some very fine wine from the grapes in my vineyard from the summer. But you three aren't going to rat me out, are you?" Peggy said as she led them in. A table meant for twenty had four place settings. One at the head of the table, obviously for Peggy and three others.

Figuring there was no way to avoid it any longer, Nico returned to the house. He found Peggy in the dining room, making a point to ignore the other three. "The h- ah, your guests vehicle is in the garage," he told her. "If that is all you need from me them I'm going to retire for the night."

"I believe that should be beef stew with a fresh roll, plenty filling as well as warm," Peggy told the siblings as she took her bowl, just some of the broth, no meat or vegetables, though she did have a roll. She looked at Nico, "Hold your tongue. Thank you for your services, but unless you need to speak with me later about any concerns, you are dismissed. You will most likely find me in the library once I see everyone to their rooms."

Thomas could not understand how he could have driven the car out of the ditch. It had been very stuck; he’d tried everything to get it out. He took a seat at the table, trying to push his suspiciousness aside. “It smells heavenly,” Thomas praised

"Yes, Ralph, would you and Clara finish with dinner for the rest of the staff and clean up quickly after," Peggy told him, referring to their chamber in the basement for bleeding animals. She didn't want the smell to linger through the house with humans around.

Her heart sank at that. They would be stuck here all weekend with these strange people? Sure it could be worse, it was a beautiful mansion, but she couldn’t help but distrust them. “And you’re willing to let us stay the whole time?” She carefully took a sip of the soup.

Thomas' expression soured as he realized just how long they would be trapped in the stranger's home. He sighed and looked towards his siblings; surely everything would be okay. His uneasiness about Peggy, her home, and the staff was probably nothing. "Well, I am certainly glad we found your home. Thank you for letting us stay," he said. Had they not found shelter, they would have continued to wander in the cold.

"I don't mind the company at all and don't let  any of the staff alarm you. You are under my care. They are under my pay,"  Peggy told them and winked.

Nico laughed in his face. "Stop trying to act intimidating. We both know you're a pathetic excuse for a vampire."

Maggie tried to give her brothers a reassuring smile, though she herself was a little nervous about having to sleep alone in this unfamiliar house.

If you have any issues, you may knock on my door and if you don’t find me there, the library is usually where I am,” she told them as she guided them up the stairs and then motioned to their rooms. Inside, they would find a large king sized bed, a wardrobe equal to a small bedroom, a powder room enclosed by a wooden divider, and pajamas already set out on the beds. “This is where I leave you, my pets. Have a good evening. I’ll see you in the morning”

Maggie stared into her bedroom in awe, not even glimpsing the entirety of it yet but still impressed. “Thank you very much.” She turned to her brothers. “I guess I’ll see you in the morning?”

Thomas pushed open the door to their room, checking out briefly before turning back to Peggy with a smile, "Good night. and again, thank you for everything," he said.

Charles stared at the one bed in his and his brother's room, squinting at it. "We have to share?" he muttered to himself. He supposed he couldn't be picky with their current situation, but it still put a damper on his mood. "Thank you Peggy," he added more loudly as he turned back toward her as well.

"At least we're sleeping inside, in a bed and now outside in the snow," Thomas said, "I promise, I don't snore," he teased.

Peggy looked at Thomas and gently placed her delicate fingers on his shoulder, “You shouldn’t carry your guilt Thomas. It will harm no one but yourself,” she told him and then pulled away, turning to go back fish the stairs

Post by: kristina-la on January 21, 2019, 05:02:39 PM
Thomas stared after her, frowning, "I'm not..." he started but closed his mouth, just watching her walked away. He sighed and looked to his siblings, "Good night Maggie," he said then disappeared into their room. How could he not carry the guilt of what happened?
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 21, 2019, 05:05:28 PM
Maggie watched her brother go into his room with a frown. “Goodnight,” she told Charles, seeing as Thomas was already in the room. “I hope we can leave soon,” she said in a conspiratorial voice.

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 21, 2019, 05:12:27 PM
Peggy took the walk down her stairs and then down the basement stairs, locking the door behind her as she looked at her little coven of vampire, “Are we feeding or not?”

"Yeah, me too," Charles agreed. "But hey, if you get cold you can just come join us," he added with a grin as he motioned toward the bed in his and Thomas' room. "But anyway, sleep well." He waved to Maggie and followed his brother into the room.
"Now, I know you said you don't snore, but I have lived with you for 20 years and I know how you sleep, dear brother. If a single finger or toe ends up on my side of the bed, you'll regret it."

Thomas rolled his eyes and threw a pillow at Charles, "I think this bed is plenty big enough to accommodate my restlessness," he said. He grabbed the pajamas from the bed and quickly changed into them, "I still cannot believe we happened to stumble across a mansion in the middle of nowhere," Thomas said
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 21, 2019, 05:33:39 PM

"After you, Miss," Nico said, stepping aside to allow the Mistress of the house ahead of them. "So exactly how long are the humans going to be staying here?" He asked suddenly. "Are we going to be expected to keep up some sort of farce so they don't discover what we really are?"

<**screaming meemies aaahh D:**>

Post by: kristina-la on January 21, 2019, 05:47:10 PM
Thomas lay back on the bed, "I was wondering that too. Why would anyone want to work in a creepy mansion in the middle of a secluded forest?" he mused.

Peggy strung up the hog herself, pressing a hand to its head to thank it for being their sacrifice before putting a large metal trough underneath  and then pulling a knife off the wall, slitting its throat and letting it bleed  out. She took a wine glass from a nearby bar stand beside them and dipped it into the growing pool of blood. She took a deep breath of the blood before taking a long drink of her glass, fangs having emerged, eyes nearly a glow. She then stepped aside and motioned, "My friends."

Post by: Mara-la on January 21, 2019, 06:09:23 PM
Happy to finally be feeding, Clara reached for a glass and dipped it into the blood. She tried to drink it slowly, but was too hungry, and gulped it down quickly, almost embarrassingly.

Post by: Emma-la on January 21, 2019, 11:24:19 PM
Maggie stood in front of her bed, having changed into the bedclothes provided but unwilling to settle. There was something off about this place and she intended to find out what. Charles and Thomas May be ready for bed, but she was far too curious for sleep. So she crept out of her room, electing to wander the house.

Thomas fixed his brother with a hard stare, “Charles, I don’t know if that’s a good idea,” he said. He did not think their hostess would be please with them snooping around.

Post by: kristina-la on January 22, 2019, 03:14:37 AM
Thomas groaned and then got up from the bed; he knew Charles would go off regardless so he would feel better if he went too. “Oh fine,” he said

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 22, 2019, 03:39:09 AM

Thomas released a long and frustrated breath, "You two are so reckless and irresponsible," he grumbled. He could not deny his own curiosity though.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 22, 2019, 04:17:41 AM
Nico took his own glass, filling it til the point of almost over flowing. He took a long, slow drink, and then threw his head back, fangs bared as that wonderful sensation warmed him. Although, it still wasn't quite as good as human...
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 22, 2019, 04:37:12 AM
Peggy looked at her servants and smiled, baring her fangs, “If any of you reveal us to our guest or harm our guest, you will find yourself in the green house with the windows open for the dawn to take you,” she threatened and then drank the rest of her glass before dipping her glass in for another one helping, “They are stranded, needed help, we are the only ones out here. I’ve made a firm devotion to not spill human blood, and while I do not care what you do outside my home, in these walls, you will obey my words.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 22, 2019, 04:54:29 AM
Nico scowled, but said nothing more. He more than aware of the fact that Peggy did not make empty threats. It still worried him, though; they'd all have to be extra careful to ensure that the humans didn't discover them.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 22, 2019, 05:17:44 AM
Clara went for another glass. Her fangs out was much more comfortable than having them in, but she knew they wouldn’t be accepted among humans. Life as a vampire hadn’t come easily to her, and she missed Christian, even after all this time. She had adapted though, and she liked this small coven she had found. “Miss Peggy, what if they were to discover us, despite our caution?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 22, 2019, 06:21:22 AM
Maggie rolled her eyes at her eldest brother. “You can’t tell me you’re not curious, Tommy.” She peeked down the stairs. “The coast is clear, cmon let’s see what we can find out. Something isn’t right with these people.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 22, 2019, 06:45:39 AM
Thomas sighed, "I didn't say I wasn't curious," he said, following Maggie to the stairs, "I simply do not wish to anger our hostess when she has been so gracious," Thomas explained in a hushed voice.

Post by: Emma-la on January 22, 2019, 06:57:43 AM
“Well that’s why we aren’t going to get caught,” she told him with a smile. “We just snoop around a bit and go back to bed. Nobody will be the wiser.” She crept down the stairs, on guard for any noises.

Maggie pulled a random book off a shelf and started to rifle through it. "See if you can find anything personal," she told her brothers. "There's bound to be something. For all we know they could be murderers, or ghosts."

“Don’t be silly, you’d be far more bothered as an only child,” she put the book back and grabbed a different one, which gave her pause. “Okay well this is weird,” she said, her tone getting more serious. “Look at the title.”

"No, you three may go about your business or, I suggest you rest. I know we have all the windows painted black, so we should have any problems with the humans opening curtains during daylight, but I would ask that you please try to accommodate to their sleeping schedule just this one ni--" Peggy gave pause. Someone was in the study. No...all three of them. She could hear it. She set her glass down, "Stay here." she told her servants and then in an instant, took the form of a bat, her dress and jewels dropping to the ground before she flew up, through small opening that went through the house and then up  into the study herself, hanging from a rail on the ceiling. She stayed quiet, staring down at the three, curious what they  were snooping at.

Post by: kristina-la on January 22, 2019, 05:22:33 PM
Thomas walked over and took the book from her, frowning as he read over the title. It didn’t seem to be in English but the one word that stood out was vampire. He shrugged and gave it back to Maggie, “probably just a story, like Dracula,” he said, not overtly concerned. “First ghosts, now vampires? Are you sure you didn’t hit your head in the car?” He teased.

Maggie rolled her eyes at him. “Oh shut up, I’m just saying it’s a little odd. I mean come on, you really don’t think there’s something strange going on here? A mysterious rich stranger is insisting on us staying here for days, feeding us, and you think there’s no ulterior motive?” She put the book back down.

"I doubt she's a vampire, Mags," Charles chuckled and shook his head. "If anything, I bet she married some rich old man and then offed him and took all his money," he whispered conspiratorially. Then he shrugged and turned back toward the door. "We should probably get out of here anyway."

As much as Thomas wanted to believe nothing strange was going on, he couldn’t shake his suspicion. However, Maggie’s theory was too put there for him. “There’s no such thing as vampires. Don’t be ridiculous l. And Charles, don’t enguldge her; you know how insane it is.” He said, walking out of the study, “vampires,” he muttered with a shake of his head.

"From the looks of those three, I doubt they'd anyone to teach them manners at all," Nico grumbled. He picked up the Mistress's clothing from off the ground, folding it nicely and setting it on a nearby table.

Thomas groaned and followed his siblings, "You're only 18 Maggs, and if you didn't always do stupid things maybe I wouldn't feel like I have to protect you," he countered. He stopped in front of the library, "Maybe we should look at her 'unfinished works'," Thomas suggested, "You know, the ones she told us not to look at"

Peggy flew back to her room and took her human form again. She got into her nightgown, a fashionable navy blue and pulled her silk robe over top before deciding to visit the trio in the library. She came through the secondary entrance, a staircase directly from her bedroom. She stood inside the doorway silently and just watch the three of them, wondering how long they would be before they realized she was standing there. It was in the back of the room and she had grown accustomed to being very quiet.

Clara nodded at Nico and then decided that she wanted to see the show of Miss Peggy catching the others snooping on her. "I'm going upstairs," she said. She walked very quietly, staying in the shadows, and stood by the closed door of the study, listening keenly.

Peggy watched a bat go by Maggie's head and frowned, afraid Raphael was going to reveal them. She sighed and then looked over at Thomas was going through her books she was currently reading, the ones she told him not to move because she didn't want to lose her place in them. She had two histories there, Greece and England, a romance, a financial log for her bootlegging business, and inside three of the books (which were hollowed out), bottles of alcohols- whiskey, vodka, and tequila.

Everyone else seemed so keen on seeing what the humans were doing. But what for? They were hardly interesting. All Nico cared about was that they didn't find out the truth about the residents of the house, and that would be guaranteed not to happen the sooner they left, alive or otherwise.

Thomas glanced over at his brother, noting Charles' nervousness. He really hoped no one walked in to catch them snooping. Thomas looked through the books, finding nothing that grabbed his attention.

"No? The bottle of whiskey didn't interest you? Or my financial logs?" Peggy called from where she was standing, "I trusted  you three. Brought you into my home, out of the storm....and this  is how I find you?"

Thomas swallowed hard before turning around; he had not even heard her enter the room. "We couldn't seem to fall asleep, thought we would find some books to read,' Thomas said evenly, casting a look over at her books, "We got curious," he confessed, "We should not have looked, I am very sorry"

"And the adventure into my study?" Peggy asked, stepping towards Thomas, not entertained with his lies, "What did you find there?" she asked him, eyes staying on his wholy, "What  stories  did you learn?" She then glanced at Charles, "Did I murder my husband?"

Post by: kristina-la on January 23, 2019, 01:54:54 PM
Thomas mouth twitched as she caught him in the lie; there was a small bit of fear building up inside but also guilt. He knew snooping had been a bad idea! He looked down shamefully, "We were wrong to snoop," he said but then looked up again with a frown, "How did you know we were in the study?" he questioned.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 23, 2019, 01:56:04 PM
"How long have you been listening to us?" Charles demanded, brows furrowed and jaw set. Thomas may have been remorseful for their actions, but he sure wasn't.

"This is a very quiet house. You think I couldn't hear you go down the stairs? I was just right in the kitchen," she lied, technically. The basement was through the kitchen, in a small cellar door in the greenhouse. "I've never been married, for your information. It's  hard to find someone who's okay with living with a recluse," Peggy told them, her words mostly stabbing towards Charles. "Murdered my husband," she repeated under her breath and turned, going towards her shelf and pulling out the book with the vodka, "Is kindness so rare in society these days? Did it dry up with all of our alcohol?" she said and unscrewed the lid.

Post by: Emma-la on January 23, 2019, 02:11:40 PM
Maggie’s eyes were wide, unsure how to react. They had angered their host, and that concerned her deeply, but there was also a part of her that felt angry that she had been listening to them this whole time. “One can never be too careful these days, Miss Peggy. The world is full of people who would take advantage of our situation to harm us.”

Peggy took a long drink straight from the bottle for a moment and then put it down and screwed the lid back on. She then put the bottle down and looked at three of them, shaking her head and then running her fingers through her hair, "Well then, if you're so set on believing the worst of me...." Peggy felt heat sting her eyes, "I suppose you have every right to." She'd gone the last 20 years without shedding a tear. She'd sworn she'd lost emotion like this long ago, "I lost my brother and then my parents. I've lived alone here for a long time with just my servants and I have no reason to harm you. I only intended to keep you from the harm of old Jack Frost out there."

Post by: Emma-la on January 23, 2019, 02:25:36 PM
Maggie frowned, trying very hard not to be taken in by the woman’s son story, but she had a heart and it bled for Peggy. Lin so sorry to hear that,” she said in a small, shameful voice. “We were wrong to distrust you. Please would you forgive us?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 23, 2019, 02:37:03 PM

Thomas wished he would have tried harder to stop his siblings from snooping; if he was being honest with himself, he had been just as curious about Peggy and her staff. He felt overwhelmingly guilty for distrusting the woman after everything she had already done for them, "It won't happen again," Thomas said, "that is, if you will allow us to stay," he said, hoping she would not throw them out in the cold for being a little curious.

Peggy waved her hand, “You will stay. I’m not going to freeze you out now. Just please, give me the benenfit of the doubt,” she said and then looked at three of them, “Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to bed. You three may read if you like,” she said to them as she grabbed her English history book and then headed to her private staircase.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 24, 2019, 01:16:14 AM
Charles watched her go, unease settling in his stomach. He didn't feel guilty in the slightest, if he was being completely honest. But if there were stairs she was taking then how many other hidden things did this house have? He was eager to continue looking, but he knew his siblings wouldn't try to push their luck. And, well, bed was starting to sound pretty nice.

Post by: Emma-la on January 24, 2019, 07:20:54 AM
Maggie followed her brother, feeling guilty and Thomas, being the eldest, still held some form of authority for her. She looked to Charles, who seemed reluctant. “Let’s not get ourselves into any more trouble than necessary.”

Post by: kristina-la on January 24, 2019, 07:34:02 AM
"Exactly," Thomas agreed as he stopped of the door to his and Charles' room. He fixed his brother with a hard stare, knowing Charles was still suspicious; he was not good at hiding it, "Right Charles?" he said

Peggy went to her room and slipped the robe off, sitting in her large bed as she took her book out and began to read. She sat there and eventually put the book down, thinking over everything. They had said vampires in the  study. If any of her  staff heard  them, they'd assume they were found and possibly attack. She knew the right  thing to do was keep the children safe. They were just children to her after all, 50 years younger than her almost.

Maggie curled up in bed, the feeling of being separated from her brothers for the night putting her in a state of unease. Normally she loved the idea of being apart from them, but she still felt unsafe in this house, with the scary groundskeeper especially. She fell asleep, dreaming of all kinds of unnatural things.

Peggy willed herself to sleep during the night, mostly using a bottle of brandy she kept in her bedside table. She awoke in the morning, getting out of bed and dressed in a simple white blouse with a deep emerald green skirt that was high above her waist to give the illusion of a much tighter hourglass rather than her slim form. She pulled her hair up into bun on the back of her head and headed downstairs, pouring herself a cup of coffee with a splash of pig's blood that she had in a container high in a cabinet and then sitting down at the table to await her guests and her breakfast.

Nico was beyond cranky. His sleeping schedule was going to be completely messed up now- being awake during the day was completely unnatural. Still, he got himself dressed, combed his hair, and heading down to the kitchens, running into Peggy along the way. "Morning, Miss," he said, trying his best to sound pleasant.

Clara had hardly slept; it was against her routine. Still, she had gotten out of bed chipper as usual, gotten dressed, and headed to the kitchen, prepared to start bringing food to the table for the humans. On arrival, she came across Peggy and Nico. “Good morning,” she chirped, going to gather up the food to bring out.

“Good morning you three,” Peggy said and looked them over before sipping more of her coffee and then looking at the stairs, “One of our guests is awake” she said and then sighed, “They should be gone by noon.

Thomas was awoken when his brother got up; he groaned and rolled over, staring out the window. "Charles! Look, I think the storm has stopped," he said as he scrambled out of bed. Sure enough, it seemed the snow had ceased; maybe they would not be forced to remain the whole weekend.

Had been wrong. Their vehicle wasn't a piece of junk- it barely even constituted as scrap metal. "How did this thing even run," Nico muttered to himself as he got to work. The damage from the crash was the least of their problems.

It was shaping up to be more work than he'd anticipated. Nico stepped back, wiping his forehead. In all honesty, how had they ever been able to drive the thing?

Maggie flushed at the implications about her brother. Sure, Thomas was a good looking man, but she didn’t like to think about other people seeing him as potential for something romantic. At least not around her. Creepy. “My parents? Oh, they do textiles. Sewing and whatnot.” She shrugged.

Maggie was excited by the attention from Miss Peggy. “Oh all kinds of things! The pictures are full of all kinds of things. Have you seen Charlie Chaplin? He’s absolutely marvellous. Oh and Mary Pickford is just divine.”

"I'd hardly say that's rude, considering this is our car," Charles scoffed. He pointedly walked over to where Nico was and leaned over to see what he was doing.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 27, 2019, 01:23:44 AM
Nico scowled at him, but did not move out of the way. "And how do you suppose you're going to help, hm? By getting in the way?" Typical humans.

Or, better yet, how about I rip your arm off? Nico thought, absolutely fuming. Who on Earth did this kid think he was? He was probably responsible for the crash, no doubt. "What's wrong with it is pretty much everything," he said flatly. "It's an old rust bucket that should not have been anywhere near the roads in the weather we had last night."

“Charles...” Thomas muttered under his breath, nudging his brother’s arm as a warning. He was letting anger get the better of him...again. Thomas eyed the groundskeeper warily, afraid the man would lash out st them.

(I’m pretty sure his name is Nico, Stina 😂😂😂)

“I’m not familiar with this Mary woman, but Charlie Chaplin is very funny. I enjoy his films. In the winter, it’s a little easier to go out since the night is so long but it seems all the excellent films come out in summer.” She noted and then looked at Ralph, “Would you go check upstairs to see in the gentlemen would like something to eat?” She then looked to Maggie, “Nico said he may have your car finished by noon.”

Maggie’s eyes lit up. “Oh how wonderful! He truly is a wonder, that man. I must remember to thank him for everything he’s done for us.” Nico had an aura that struck fear in her heart, but there was something about that that was exciting.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on January 27, 2019, 02:54:29 AM
"Yes ma'am." Ralph went to check, but found that they weren't upstairs. "They're not there ma'am." He told Peggy, returning. "Should I go find them?"

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 27, 2019, 03:18:12 AM
Peggy chuckled and shook her head, “Nico is a little rough around the edges. He doesn’t like many people. I was lucky to ind him in a position where he needed this job and it softened him a bit” she then looked to Ralph and frowned, “Oh? Then where...”

Post by: Emma-la on January 27, 2019, 03:46:22 AM
Maggie sighed, of course they would go off on their own. And without her. “They must have decided to go exploring. Perhaps they’re checking to see if the weather is good to go home?” She wished she could have listened to Miss Peggy go on a bit more about the tall, dark and handsome groundskeeper. “We ought to find them.”

Charles glared at his brother and then turned back to the car. "What's this here?" He asked, pointing to one of the metal pieces under the hood. It looked loose, so he reached forward to try and push it into place. He wasn't anticipating the edge to be sharp, though, and blood starting beading on the pad of his finger. He quickly pulled his finger away and sucked on it, cursing under his breath.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 27, 2019, 07:38:10 AM
Nico froze, his entire body stiffening at the smell of fresh human blood. Normally he would have been able to control himself, but being on edge as it was around humans, all caution was thrown to the wind. He bared his teeth, fangs fully protruding from his gums, growling deep in his throat before he lunged at the young man.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 27, 2019, 07:43:25 AM
Thomas yelled out in surprise as the groundskeeper lunged at Charles. His human mind was struggled to accept what he'd witnessed in the moment prior; the inhuman fangs clearly visible as Nico bared his teeth; the animalistic growl. Once his initial shock wore, Thomas desperately tried to pull Nico off his brother, "Stop stop!" he explained in panic.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on January 27, 2019, 07:58:08 AM
Ralph's head spun at the sound of Nico's voice, along with that of the brothers. "Oh God DAMMIT!" He broke into a sprint for the garage. "Nico! Stop it!"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 27, 2019, 08:00:38 AM
<**.... is he going through the secret passageway?**>

 Nico just about had his fangs in Charles' throat when Thomas grabbed him. He pushed the older brother off of him forcefully. The adrenaline rushing through him, and the smell of blood was intoxicating. He was too far gone to stop now. He'd have to kill both of them.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2019, 08:06:04 AM
Charles stumbled back when Thomas pulled Nico off of him. He took a moment to gather what was going on, trying to come up with a way to get rhem out of there. His eyes landed on the garage and he started running toward it to throw the door open.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 27, 2019, 08:10:35 AM
Thomas crashed into the wall, letting out a soft groan of pain. His sister's theory from the previous night did not seem so crazy to him any longer. Vampire. Thomas watched his brother rush to the garage door, realizing quickly what his plan was. He scrambled to his feet and rushed to Charles, blocking Nico to give his brother time to get the door open.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on January 27, 2019, 08:20:00 AM
(If it's faster.)

Ralph burst into the garage, and hit Nico in a flying tackle, tearing him off the boy. "Nico, stop!"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 27, 2019, 08:26:55 AM
<**well he can't go outside right now. Also, Nico does not currently have his hands on either of them**>

Nico shoved Ralph away from him. Always ruining the fun, he was. He noticed the two brothers making their way for the door, the older blocking his way. Nico actually laughed to himself. He didn't stand a chance. He lunged again, prepared to attack.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 27, 2019, 08:29:38 AM
Thomas braced himself, prepared to fend off the creature by any means necessary. He would not let it harm his brother, "Get the door!!!" he shouted at his brother.

When the light hit him it instantly burned. His skin sizzled and blackened in the areas exposed to sun, and he instantly lept away into a darker corner of the room, teeth bared defensively.

Post by: kristina-la on January 27, 2019, 09:07:05 AM
Thomas heaved a deep sigh of relief when Charles finally got the door open and that creature retreated to the corner of the garage. Thomas stepped out of the garage into the sunlight, pulling Charles out after him, "We have to get Maggie out of there," he said urgently, looking up the drive to the house.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on January 27, 2019, 09:09:33 AM
Ralph scrambled to his feet and darted into the shadow cast by the car, swearing at both the pain, and at Nico. "You just had to, didn't you Nico? Mis Peggy isn't going to have to throw you in the greenhouse, cause I'm going to do it my f***king self!"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2019, 09:11:59 AM

Maggie watched Ralph go dumbfoundedly. Her human ears weren’t strong enough to pick up what was going on in the garage. “My brothers are likely with the car...”

[if they want to keep them there, the vampires could keep Maggie as ransom so the boys don’t leave]
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 27, 2019, 09:21:17 AM
Thomas ran as quickly as he possibly could; he was terrified and utterly confused. It was impossible; vampires could not exist! When they reached the front door, he threw it open and ran inside, "MAGGIE!" he yelled frantically
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 27, 2019, 09:29:39 AM
Nico took a moment to clear his head, swearing under his breath. "Oh, shut up Ralph," he snapped, already rushing for the secret entrance back to the house. Miss Peggy was going to skin him alive.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 27, 2019, 10:10:59 AM
Peggy heard the commotion throughout the house and groaned. Damn Nico. His attitude and his hunger was going to get them all killed and exposed. She took Maggie by the arm and sighed, “Please follow me,” She asked and led the girl to the study. She had Maggie sit down and the went over to her desk and retrieved an old revolver that she kept in perfect working condition. She checked for bullets and then took the gun with her before standing between Maggie and the door, concealing the weapon in the folds of her skirt as not to frighten the poor girl. This wasn’t her fault. She waited.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 27, 2019, 10:15:24 AM
Thomas ran up the stairs, not thinking about being more discrete. He just needed to alert his sister and get her out of the house. He ran to her room and pushed open the door; when he realized she was not there, he ran down the hall checking every room until he reached the study. He stopped dead in his tracks, staring at Peggy with a wild look in his eyes. He gazed past her at Maggie and breathed in hard
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2019, 10:31:15 AM
Charles raced after his brother, skidding to a stop when they reached the study. He looked at Peggy and then to his sister behind her, his jaw tightening in anger. "We're leaving. Thank you for your hospitality, but we need to go."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 27, 2019, 10:39:55 AM
“I’m afraid the arrangements for your stay have just changed,” Peggy told them and then pulled the gun out and pointed it at the boys first, but then, with a completely straight face, cocked the hammer and pointed it at Maggie. She sighed, “Please sit. We need to talk about how things are going to happen from here on out.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 27, 2019, 10:54:54 AM
Thomas swallowed hard as his eyes flickered from the gun to his sister. The one thought running through his mind was that he should have taken Charles' concerns more seriously. "Fine," he said sharply, "Please, there's no need to harm her," Thomas said evenly, though he was terrified. Thomas took a seat and looked to Charles, urging him to just listen and not mouth off; not when Maggies' life was on the line
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 27, 2019, 11:00:53 AM
“I don’t want to hurt anyone,” Peggy told him, sincerely. “I simply want my house in order and unfortunately, I believe you stumbled into a secret you weren’t supposed to know,” she told them. She then looked at Maggie, “Myself and my servants...are vampires.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2019, 11:07:11 AM
Charles slowly sunk into one of the chairs, staring at the gun pointed to his sister. He glanced around the room, though he couldn't quite figure out a way for them all to get out. Could he shatter the windows? That might be an option, since they saw with Nico that the vampires couldn't be in the sunlight.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on January 27, 2019, 11:15:09 AM
Pulling his suitcoat over his head to shield himself from the sun, Ralph dashed into the tunnel. He then grabbed Nico's arm, dragging him along. "We're having a talk with Miss Peggy." He snarled.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 27, 2019, 11:17:52 AM
Nico shoved him away again, more violently. "I'm going to explain what happened, without you. Shouldn't you be licking the floors clean, you goodie two shoes brown-noser?" He snapped, continuing down the tunnel to the main hall. The fear was beginning to set it. He'd screwed up, he'd screwed up bad, and he didn't need an arse kisser like Ralph breathing down his neck and reminding him about that fact.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 27, 2019, 11:20:14 AM
It seemed almost worse hearing her say it out loud; despite seeing Nico attack Charles, fangs and all, Thomas had not wanted to believe something so insane. "Let us leave, we will keep your secret," Thomas said, keeping his expression neutral. He had always been an excellent liar, especially when it mean keeping his family safe.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 27, 2019, 11:25:17 AM
“Oh. I’ve hesrd that before,” Peggy said and slowly lowered the gun, “That’s why I lost my last home. Why I moved out into the middle of the woods. We don’t bother with humans except for those who help us get supplies, under the assumption I’m a sick woman who can’t go out in the sun.” She groaned, “But if I let you go, you’ll tell people. You’ll come to kill us  because my groundskeeper is a moron.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 27, 2019, 11:36:08 AM
Maggie watched the entire thing in mute fear. Even with the gun now pointed away from her, the threat was still there and she found it hard to calm down, her hands shaking at her sides. “We won’t tell a soul, I promise,” she said in a shaky voice. “Please just let us go home.” She wanted so badly to bolt for her brothers, to feel safe beside them, but she was afraid to make any sudden move.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 27, 2019, 11:48:25 AM
Thomas could see the fear in his sister's eyes and it filled him with guilt. it was his fault they crashed. His fault they had to trudge through the snow. His fault they'd found themselves at the mercy of a house filled with monsters. If anything happened to Maggie or Charles, it would be his fault. "You can't keep us here as captives," Thomas said
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 27, 2019, 11:53:52 AM
Nico heard voices up in the study and rushed upstairs, though he came to a screeching halt at the door. The humans were talking to the Mistress. He was too late. He leaned with his back against the wall, closing his eyes. "Oh, I am so screwed..."

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 27, 2019, 12:10:11 PM
“I don’t have to keep all of you. Just. One,” she said and looked at Maggie, “I’m sorry. I...can’t move again,” She sighed out and rubbed her head, “I never meant for you to find us out. I wanted to just give you safety.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 27, 2019, 12:13:53 PM
Thomas looked to his brother and sister, knowing what needed to happen. "I'll stay," he said quietly, "let them go home and I will stay," Thomas told her, turning his gaze to fix on Peggy. There was fear in his eyes, but also a fierce determination to protect his family.

Thomas obviously did not wish to stay behind in a house filled with creatures that could very easily kill him if they lost control. However, if stayed behind meant that his brother and sister could go free and follow their dreams in the big city, then he would. "Yes, I'm very serious," he told them, "It's my fault we're even here to begin with. You two will go home, and I'll stay. There is no sense in us all being captive in this house," he said

“We’re not monsters,” Peggy told them and groaned, “You think we chose this?  You think we wanted this life?!” She looked at Thomas and her heart shuddered, “You’ll stay for them?” She swallowed and sighed. Thomas. The eldest. The handsome brother who cared for his family. “I accept. Charles, you can drive?”

“Ralph. Send Nico in please. I believe he owes these gentlemen an apology,” Peggy said gravely. She was obviously very unhappy with the man.

Nico dug his fingernails into his palms hard, taking a deep breath before he entered the room. He avoided looking at the humans, his focus entirely on the Mistress. "Miss Peggy, I never meant for this to happen, I-" he began, stumbling over his words. It wasn't his fault, right? They'd been pestering him. Nothing would have happened if they hadn't been so eager to stick their noses in everything.

“Apologize,” Peggy told him and looked over him, observing the burns in his skin, “It seems you’ve already been punished for what you’ve done.” She sighed, “I don’t want to hurt anyway and I don’t want to separate you all. Not permanently,” she said. She then looked at Thomas, “One year. Long enough for your siblings to forget how to find the way back here,” Peggy told them. She put the gun down at her side. “You three may have your time to say good byes. Then Thomas, we’ll discuss your arrangements and how in going to keep you safe from morons,” she said and glared over at Nico.

Thomas sighed and put his hands on Charles' shoulders, "I will be fine. If they wanted to kill us, we would be dead already," Thomas reasoned. "A year is not that long; I'll be back before you know it," Thomas said, trying to sound calm. He dropped his hands and then drew Maggie into a hug, "It will be okay," he said.

Maggie started to shake in Thomas’ arms, trying not to cry and she clutched him back tightly. “What are we supposed to tell mama and papa?” She asked in a strained voice. She didn’t feel ready to say goodbye, afraid she would never see him again despite the promise of one year.

"Apologize? For reacting like any of you would have?" It wasn't true though, and he knew it- he clearly had the hardest time controlling his blood lust. He lowered his head, gritting his teeth. "Fine. I apologize for attacking you when you provoked me," he told the two.

Thomas held his sister for a while, not wanting to let go or say goodbye; it was too hard. He eventually drew back, looking at her sadly, "I'm sure you'll think of something Maggs," he said. Thomas turned his attention to the groundskeeper, raising his eyebrow, "That was a terrible apology," Thomas said.

Nico snarled at the boy. "That's not your decision to make. And it was your fault for bothering me," he snapped, although he shrank back when Peggy spoke. Was she actually going to kill him?

Maggie grabbed Charles by the arm, afraid the angry groundskeeper would hurt him again. “Charlie don’t.” She didn’t trust anyone, not even Miss Peggy. The woman had pointed a gun at her.

Thomas took a few steps away from his brother and sister, keeping his gaze down; it pained him to even think about saying goodbye to them for a whole year.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 27, 2019, 03:47:34 PM
Maggie stared down at the gun, a look of agony crossing her face at the thought of walking away. “You have to keep in some kind of contact with us,” she urged Peggy, still staring at the gun. “I need to know that he’s still alive.” She couldn’t even fathom the thought of going home without Thomas. What would their parents think? What could she possibly do? She desperately wanted to just put her foot down and stay herself.

"I said exactly what happened," Nico said. "I was minding my business, doing my job, when these two came along and started hassling me. Then this one," he jabbed a finger in Charles' direction. "Thought it would be a good idea to touch a sharp object. He bled, end of story."

Peggy looked at Thomas and his siblings and her heart did  ache a little. She couldn't keep them  separated forever. She was separated from her own brother because of being changed and she would never ever get  him back. Peggy sighed  and looked at  them, "I'm afraid, Charles and Margaret...it's time to  go," she said, her  voice choking in her throat.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 27, 2019, 05:30:08 PM
Charles turned to Peggy, his expression filled with disgust. "Don't pretend you care," he said, then looked to Thomas. His face went through a range of emotions and he couldn't quite find the right words to say. "I'm sorry. For...for everything," he finally decided on.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 27, 2019, 05:37:14 PM
Thomas bit back his emotions as best he could, not wanting to make it harder than it had to be. He pulled Charles into a big hug, “I’m sorry too. I should have taken you more seriously.”he whispered, then drew back, “take care of Maggie. Don’t do anything stupid,” he added, teasingly. He breathed out deeply, “I...I will see you in a year then...” he said, struggling to even get those words out.

Maggie stared at the floor determinedly, refusing to let her tears fall, though her eyes were full of them. She knew if she spoke, she would cry, so she stayed quiet and let her brothers do the goodbye. It was only a year, she could handle a year.

Maggie wiped her eyes and looked up, moving to follow Peggy out but stopping when she passed Nico. “If you so much as touch a hair on my brothers neck, I will find you and I will make sure your death is as painful as I can make it,” she threatened hotly.

Thomas followed Maggie out of the study and into the hallway, all the while trying his hardest not to break down. He felt that he needed to stay strong for his brother and sister so they wouldn’t worry about him. Thomas smirked a bit when Maggie threatened the groundskeeper; she could be downright terrifying when she wanted to be, “

Nico was a little surprised by the small one's outburst. Normally when humans learned of their true nature, they refused to even make eye contact, terrified of unleashing vampiric rage. He turned to Ralph. "Yes, the car is driveable. I am good at my job, after all."

Peggy let Charles and Maggie pass with Ralph to take them to the car in the garage. She put her arm in front of Thomas so he wouldn’t leave the room and held her strong stance. She swallow before saying quietly, “It will pass quicker than you believe. I’ve lived 68 years and times arrow neither stands still nor reverses. It merely matches forward.” She then looked to Thomas’ eyes, “I’m sure you have many questions.”

Post by: kristina-la on January 28, 2019, 04:49:42 AM
Thomas felt his heart break as he watched Charles and Maggie depart without him. He couldn’t imagine a day when it would get easier.  He finally tore his eyes from them to look at Peggy, “have you ever fed from a human?” He asked, unable to help himself; he wanted to know, especially if he had to live with her for a whole year

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 28, 2019, 05:01:34 AM
Peggy stared at him and swallowed roughly before regaining her composure. “Just one. When you’re first turned, you’re overcome with an animalistic hunger...uncontrollable and...” she turned her face but didn’t cry. Not this time. “My older brother, Michael...he tried to help me. He tried to hold me back from killing our dog and I broke his skin in the fight. The smell...it drew me in. He didn’t stand a chance against my new strength.” She breathed out, “My parents forgave me later after having me...exorcised. Which, didn’t work. But I don’t think I’ve ever really forgiven myself”

Maggie reached for Charles’ hand, turning to look back at Thomas. There was nothing else she could do for him, now she would have to step up back at home. Without Thomas around, she would have to step up and find a real job.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 28, 2019, 07:44:06 AM
Thomas' heart went out to her, "I'm sorry, that is truly terrible. I can't even imagine the heartache and guilt..." he said softly. If he so much as harmed his siblings it would utterly crush him.

"It'll be alright, Mags," Charles said quietly, his tone subdued. He squeezed her hand as he followed the man to their car. He took a shaky breath when he saw the contraption that had caused all of this, and suddenly he wished he could just crash it. He wouldn't, of course, but he felt like a complete failure now.

“Then you must be understanding of why I have to protect what I have here. Hardly any of us chose this life. I certainly didn’t,” Peggy told him, being more open than she had in a decade, “I provide a home for those who otherwise would be murdered and treated as monsters.” She told him.

Post by: Emma-la on January 28, 2019, 08:34:11 AM
Maggie let go of his hand when they got to the car. “Do you want me to drive?” She asked, voice carefully controlled. The last thing she wanted was for them to crash into another ditch.

Thomas sighed, “I understand....it does not make this easier though. All I wanted was to find shelter for my family. I didn’t mean to uncover your secret; for what it’s worth, I would have kept your secret,” Thomas said. Of course, he couldn’t control his siblings.

ONE YEAR LATER!!!

The year had gone by slowly at first, but once Thomas had opened  himself up to their little family, Peggy allowed herself to enjoy his company. She’d  made sure the servants treated him as an equal to her and did their best to  give him whatever he asked. It was  nice as well to have someone who could go outdoors in the sunlight and do things here and there for her. Peggy had told herself that no matter how handsome or kind or friendly Thomas was, she couldn’t let herself be caught up with  him. She’d  played that game too many times before and ended up sorely heartbroken from it. It didn’t help though that they’d spend their days together, reading together on the chaise, letting him teach her about sewing, playing chess and various other games in the study. The day they’d set up the croquet tourney in the library was one of her favorite days. She’d shared her taste for the exotic with him, teas from the around the world, shown him the small room she had in the attic that acted as her own private museum of items she’d had won at auctions, and even shared with him how she’d been turned by her father’s friendr. But as November and December came and went, Peggy began to dread January. Thomas would be leaving and she’d be alone again and she was considering the end. She’d sent a letter to Maggie and Charles, inviting them to the mansion, giving vague  directions so they could arrive and take their brother. These  last few days though, Peggy had been avoiding Thomas, but she’d  find him anywhere she wanted to be and they’d brush shoulders and he’d speak very kindly. Today would be the hardest to suffer in her 70 years.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 28, 2019, 10:37:43 AM
It had taken quite a few months for Nico to begin to tolerate the human's presence, and even then he didn't go out of his way to be friendly or welcoming. He regarded Thomas as the Mistress's pet, nothing more, and was honestly surprised that she had never even entertained the notion of turning him. Although as time went on he began to resent the human more and more, as Miss Peggy's feelings for the human (and her insistence that the little worm be treated as her equal) became more and more apparent.

When that fateful day in January neared closer he felt himself growing more and more relieved. Finally, everything would soon be returning to normal.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 28, 2019, 10:38:58 AM
In the days and weeks following the departure of his siblings, Thomas had struggled greatly. The pain of missing his family drove Thomas to spending much of his time cooped up in his room, avoiding Peggy and her staff unless he absolutely necessary. At some point, he couldn't determine when, the mansion stopped feeling like a prison and become more like a home. Peggy was nothing but kind to him and the more he learned about her the more he grew to care; the more he enjoyed living in her home. He thought about his family often and he continued to miss them greatly, but the separation from them was no longer unbearable.

As January drew closer, Thomas had begun to feel conflicted about returning home with his siblings. He found the thought of leaving Peggy and the others behind just as painful as it was to say goodbye to Charles and Maggie. There was a part of him that did not want to leave. As the day finally arrived, Thomas sat in the libary with a book in his lap; he stared absently at the page, too consumed in his thoughts to get past the first sentence. They would arrive any moment and he had not come to a decision.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 28, 2019, 11:09:51 AM
Charles was thrilled to be going to get Thomas. The past year had really not been easy for him, as he'd had to step up and help his parents moreso than he ever had before. The responsibility had never been put on him like it had for Thomas, so he now had a newfound respect for his older brother. But he was still ready to get back to his own life. He'd had to turn down a job offer with a paper in New York because he'd needed to stay back home for his family, which honestly was still tearing him up.
As he drove down the road toward the manor, he leaned forward a bit, barely able to contain his excitement.

(Ok imma try to hop back in)

Clara had gone about her days as usual, helping where Miss Peggy required. It was interesting, with a human around, a human who knew their secret no less. She was pleasant with him and found him more fascinating than anything else; since being turned, she hadn’t been in close proximity with a human for an extended period of time, so this was something of a science experiment.

Now, it was time for the human’s siblings to come collect him, and she found herself a bit safenned. After all, it meant one less person to interact with. It made her realize just how much she missed people; she knew she missed society, but she hadn’t realized just how much.

Maggie had found the year difficult on her, now that there were only two of them, Charles taking the lead with the family business, she found she felt more and more lonely. Over the year she had dreamed up all sorts of situations for Thomas and them coming to get him, what it was like there, what would have happened had she stayed. The groundskeeper kept creeping up in her dreams, her lonely mind conjuring up all kinds of situations between the two of them. She had found work in a speakeasy as an entertainer, taking in the flapper lifestyle. Her parents thought she worked in a shop, but she had let Charles in on her secret. She was beyond happy to finally be picking Thomas back up, hoping things would finally go back to normal. She hummed from her seat in the car, smiling out the window.

Peggy came into the library and raised an eyebrow as she saw Thomas inside. She took a deep breath and went over to the shelf where she kept her books. She took out the one with her financial records, “You can take it with you,” she said quietly before looking at Thomas, “I’ve read it before.”

Peggy looked over at Clara and smiled softly, giving her facade of being at peace with everything. It didn’t matter that her companion was leaving. It didn’t matter she’d spent nearly every day of the last year with him. She nodded at Thomas and sighed, “Yes. I’m sure there’s much to consider. Getting back to the haberdashery. All the days with your siblings”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 28, 2019, 02:45:38 PM
Thomas turned his gaze to Clara, not sure how to answer. He was far from ready to leave them all behind, especially Peggy. Of course he was desperately eager to see Charles and Maggie but the thought of going home was unappealing, especially when he thought about returning to the haberdashery. It had been nice to be free of that responsibility; the constant pressure from his father. Thomas looked back to Peggy, "It will be very nice to see them again," he said half-heartedly rather than answering Clara's question. He was not ready. That was the truth.

Nico was lounging at the top of the stairs, waiting impatiently for the other humans to arrive so they could take their brother and he would never have to deal with any of them again.

Thomas felt his cheeks flush as her lips brushed against his skin. How could he go back to a life he had never enjoyed? He had confessed to Peggy in one of their many conversations that he really did not wish to take over the family business; that he envied Charles and Maggie for having freedom to follow their passions. "Of course I will write," he said then followed Peggy out of the library and down to the front doors.

Maggie stared at the house, nerves starting to settle in for her as well. “I hope they kept their promise and treated him well.” She stepped out of the car as they pulled up. “And don’t say anything to Thomas about my job just yet, I don’t think he’d approve.” She was 19 now, she didn’t need her older brothers approval, though she still craved it.

Thomas wrapped his arms around Maggie, unable to hide a smile, "I've missed you so much," he said shakily. He turned his gaze to Peggy as he held onto his sister, a glimmer of sadness in his eyes; he did not want to leave but he also longed to be with his family again. Seeing them again made his decision even more difficult.

Nico jumped down from the top of the staircase, landing as softly as a feather. "Yes, yes, how pleasant, getting to see everyone again," he said with a bored wave. "So nice to have you around, but I suppose you're leaving now, right? Back to your mortal life?" he asked Thomas with an almost pleasant smile.

"Neither of us can wakt, it hasn't been the same without you Tommy," Charles said warmly. However, his unease twisted in his gut when he saw the way Thomas looked at Peggy. He pointedly ignored the two vampires.

Thomas felt his stomach twist uncomfortably; the more he thought about returning home the less he wanted to go. Charles was probably so eager for to him to return so that the responsibility and expectations would fall back on him. "Right...of course, my bag if just by the door..." he said distractedly. He was watching Peggy, that twist in his gut worsening.

Charles smiled, but he could tell there was some hesitancy in his brother. He didn't go and grab his bag just yet, instead taking a moment to look over his brother. "I have really missed you, Tommy. It's...it's been hard. I'm definitely not you." He ran his fingers through his hair as he spoke, having foregone his cap, and breathed out a soft laugh. "No, definitely not. You really did hold our family together."

All of the sappiness made him want to gag. He held it together though, turning to Peggy, a quizzical look on his face. "Ah, sure?" he replied in a low voice. Was he in trouble again? He highly doubted she was asking to share a drink because she wanted to celebrate.

Thomas looked back at his brother, his jaw clenched and shoulders tense as he tried to restrain himself from speaking his mind, "How are mother and father?" he asked instead, "What did you tell them?"

Peggy turned  away, just...unable to watch  anymore. She'd made her mistake, she'd grown attached. She walked with Nico to the study and pulled out a bottle of scotch and two glasses.  She pulled  the glass cork from the top of  the bottle and poured a half glass  into each  and leaned  against the desk, taking a long sip from her glass and then just held the alcohol in her mouth  for a moment before swallowing. She then looked at her groundskeeper, "The roads are cleared? They will be safe?"

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 28, 2019, 04:50:44 PM
"Yes, they'll be able to hit the main road without issue," Nico replied. He set his own glass down without partaking of the alcohol. "What's this all about?" he asked her. "I'd have thought you'd want to say goodbye to your human."

Charles swallowed thickly and glanced away from Thomas. "Er, well, we didn't want them to think you were dead or anything so we'd said you had stayed to pay off the repairs to the car. They called bushwa on that, so I said there was a girl." He looked toward where Peggy had gone and his frown deepened. "They weren't terribly happy, but I think any hard feelings will be gone once they see you."

Peggy felt tears sting her eyes and she looked up, trying to keep them from falling down her face, "Nico..." she cleared her throat and shaking her head, "I cannot say goodbye to him. Because he's not mine." she drank the rest of her glass, hand a bit shaky. Why  was this so hard?

As Charles explained the tale they told their parents, Thomas looked down, “I...I must confess, this year has been more enjoyable than I thought possible. Peggy...” he started then trailed off, not sure what he could say to adequately explain what he felt for her. “She has been tremendously kind and generous and....Charles, I don’t want to go home” he blurted out.

Nico sighed heavily. "You have feelings for him, don't you? You... love him." He ran a hand through his hair, grabbing his glass and downing the contents in one go. "Christ, Peggy. Why did you do this to yourself?"

"I tried to  take the  girl. I didn't  want Thomas here, but  he insisted and now..." she tore her eyes from Nico's, "I'm afraid to be alone again. I  made it through  last time, and the time before that, but my mind keeps telling me this one's different. But I know it's not because I care for him and I don't...want to turn him. He deserves better  than this. To  never feel the sun? To be feared? I would never take that away..."

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 28, 2019, 05:14:19 PM
Nico set his glass down again, crossing his arms. "You do realize that if you want to be with someone you have to turn them, right?" he asked her. "Besides, it's not all bad. So what if we can't go out in the sun? We never age or get sick. And people should fear us. Makes life so much more interesting, I'd say."

Peggy's eyes went back  to Nico and she shook her head, "Death follows us wherever we  go. He hardly  came  out of his room the first month. Can you imagine living a life like that?  In fear of everyone around you? And really, I  can't keep him cooped up here. No, he...he deserves to be with his  family. He kept his promise.

Charles faltered at the admission, and his posture tensed up. "What are you saying? You'd rather stay here with those...those monsters than come back with us?!" He exclaimed, gesturing toward where Peggy and Nico had gone. "How could you even say that, Thomas? Have they brainwashed you?"

Nico sighed again, running his hand down his face. "You know, it's probably not my place to say this, but all of this moping you do really doesn't help yourself," he said. "You view being a vampire as some sort of curse. What if he doesn't feel the same way? Not all of us do."

“They are not monsters,” Thomas said, glaring at Charles, “and no, they have not brainwashed me,” he retorted. Thomas looked towards the study where Peggy and nico has disappeared, not wanting to admit his confusing feelings for Peggy. Charles wouldn’t understand. “I feel so free here. Free from all the responsibility. Free from our fathers impossible expectations. I don’t even want to run the business! Charles, Maggie...I love you both do dearly, it has been so hard to be apart this year but...the thought of leaving this place now is just as unbearable,” he admitted.

Nico smirked. "That's the spirit," he said, pouring her another drink, as she'd ordered. He poured himself more as well, sipping it thoughtfully. "I could do it," he said suddenly. "Turn the boy. And he doesn't have to know it was me. When they leave, attack the car, drag him out, turn him like that," he snapped his fingers. "It'll be dark, and I can cover my face or something. We can just say there was another coven travelling through the area or something." He took another sip. "Can't believe I just suggested that, but you know. I do owe you one."

Charles's jaw tightened and he returned the glare. "Oh, it's been hard, has it?" His tone was icy and he looked away from Thomas, nearly shaking with anger. "Clearly, since you've been living it up here while we've been trying to hold everything together. You seem real torn up about it."

Peggy rolled her eyes, "No...if anyone was to  turn him, I'm sure he'd want it to be me," she said quietly before  drinking more,  "So, Mr. 'Groundskeeper'," Peggy said and looked around before  quietly asking, "The Rye Whiskey that's supposed  to go to that new bar, in Albany, it'll all be bottled and left in the greenhouse for pick up before dawn, yes?"

Thomas’eyes flashed with anger, “the first month a could barely manage to leave my room,” Thomas fires back, jabbing his brother in the chest, “because I missed you. Because I was worried about you. Guilty that you would have assume my responsibility. What’s the matter Charles? Can’t handle it? You probably want me to come home so you can run off to New York to be a hot shot journalist, rather than listen to father point out every mistake. It’s not so fun is it Charles!”

"You can't blame me because you never spoke up, Thomas! The whole damn time you were gone, all I was told was how everything you did was so much better! So forgive me if yes, I'd rather go to New York so I don't have to hear how much better you are for the rest of my life!

Thomas stepped back, his hands starting to shake; Charles was right. How could he possibly think about abandoning his family? His whole life, everything he’d done was for them. He’d put up with his father so Charles and Maggie wouldn’t have to. “Charles...I....” he started, unsure what to say or what to do. If he chose to go home , he would be trapped and unhappy. If he stayed, he would feel eternally guilty for abandoning his family. “I don’t know what to do,” he groaned

Peggy laughed and shook his head, "Go with him?

She glared at him, "What do you care? You'd be in charge of the business side of things. You could run it the way you've wanted.

Nico took a few steps back from her, rubbing his throat. "I don't want to be in charge," he said flatly. "I'm not cut out for that." He stalked over to the door. "Forgive me for speaking to you that way. Clearly, as your ever humble servant, I've no place in telling you that you're being a fool." He left the room, going to observe the humans and find out just why exactly they were still hanging around.

Maggie’s eyes brimmed with tears. She couldn’t bring herself to be angry, as much as she wanted to be, he had fallen in love. “Tommy none of us want to be there taking over the family business,” she told him in a shaky voice. “But you’re willing to give up a life with your family for this woman?” She couldn’t let him send them back there without him, continue living like that. When she saw the groundskeeper appear once more, she wiped at her eyes, trying to stand taller and lowering her voice. “Exactly how much does she mean to you?”

Charles was shocked by what he said, but he tried to keep his expression moderately neutral. It didn't really work. Maybe his sister could sound supportive, but he couldn't bring himself to.
"It doesn't matter Thomas, even if you think she matters to you, she doesn't. You've been stuck here with barely anyone to talk to, of course you're going to cling to something. That doesn't mean you should act on it. You'll see, once you get away from this place." As he spoke, his gaze flickered to Nico and he narrowed his eyes. "We'll be leaving soon, don't worry," he said to him.

"Aren't you all technically already dead? I read up on vampires," he said, looking to Nico. "It doesn't really make a difference then, except for instead of pushing daisies you all wander around sucking blood. And apparently, my brother has lost his mind."

Thomas released a deep sigh and leaned against the wall, his mind running through all their options. There did not seem to be an perfect solution; no matter what he would be separated from people he loved. "I know I should go home, go back to the way things were, because my family needs me. But...selfishly, I do not want that; I want to stay with you," Thomas said. He knew it was what Peggy want too but she clearly was not going to give in.

"Thomas...I don't want to watch you die," Peggy told him and turned back, seeing him laid against the wall, "And...it would be selfish  and wrong of me to...turn you." she swallowed hard, "Of course I want you to stay. I've never felt more alive than when I'm with you."

Thomas said nothing, too lost in his thoughts. There had to be some kind of solution. He looked over at her, "Okay, how about this. My siblings and I stay for a few more days or weeks. That gives me a chance to show them why I want to stay, and it gives me more time to decide if I wish to be turned," Thomas said, looking at Peggy for her reaction.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 09:43:36 AM
Maggie sighed deeply and looked around the place. “I can’t believe he actually went and fell in love with her...” She grumbled.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 09:50:39 AM
Peggy looked at him and raised her eyebrow, "No matter what, in this situation, it seems as if you've decided you want to stay," she said quietly and took a step towards him, "Well Nico will hate it. He barely tolerates you. And your siblings may not agree," she warned, but then  looked at the study door, "But I like it, though I don't...love the idea of you becoming a vampire still." She then immediately turned to him, "Do not let Nico convince you to let him do it. He just wants to taste human blood again. He thinks he has me fooled, but I know he's still got a hunger."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 10:07:46 AM
"I really do not care what Nico thinks of me," Thomas said. He pushed off the wall and walked to her, taking her hands in his, "I know you do not like the idea but it will be my choice. I promise to really think about it seriously," he assured her.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 29, 2019, 10:08:20 AM
"He's not in love with her, he just hasn't really had anyone but her around. He's comfortable with her and this life," Charles said, crossing his arms. "It's not healthy, he needs to get away from here."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 10:11:49 AM
As against all this as she was, Maggie couldn’t help but envy the romance of it. She wanted Thomas to be happy, and the fact that he seemed to be in love was very sweet. She envied him for that. But it still wasn’t right for him to just abandon them and his past life to come live in seclusion with the woman. “We’ll get him home and remind him how good life can be in the real world.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 10:16:02 AM
Peggy nodded at him and then smirked a little before looking  away for a moment and  then back at him, "I've...grown quite fond of you  as well. Even so far to say I've also fallen in love." she told him and came closer, leaning up and kissing his cheek  softly, "Come...let us see if your siblings will stay. You should do the talking."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 11:07:21 AM
Thomas knew it would be difficult to convince his siblings but he did feel it was a fair arrangement. Thomas smiled, keeping his hand in Peggy's as he walked out of the study. Thomas stopped in front of Charles and Maggie, looking at them nervously.
"I have a proposition for you," Thomas started.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 11:09:12 AM
Maggie’s eyes landed on their linked hands and she raised her eyebrows at him. “What kind of proposition, Thomas?” She asked, trying to maintain a steely gaze.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 11:15:05 AM

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 12:02:26 PM
OKAY. I'm home from work finally!)

"Stay here with me for a couple weeks; I want you to understand why I wish to stay," Thomas said, "If, for some reason, I change my mind then I will come home with you," Thomas told Maggie and Charles, observing their reactions carefully. He knew Charles would probably need more convincing; Maggie would be easy persuade.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 12:04:44 PM
Maggie looked at him sceptically. “We stay here a couple weeks and you’ll come home?” She asked, oversimplifying it. She was convinced he would see the light with them there to point it out to him. Literally. “You’ve got to be willing to listen to us a bit,” she bargained.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 12:11:22 PM
Thomas sighed, "I...promise to listen to you. This is a very big decision to make and I promise not to take it lightly," Thomas assured Maggie.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 12:29:33 PM
The idea was good enough for her. She nodded. “Okay...you keep that promise and well stay. Right Charles?” She looked to her older brother for reassurance.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 29, 2019, 12:50:08 PM
Clara had finished cleaning and had followed the others to be area where they now stood with everyone. “We could make it very comfortable for you,” Clara said pleasantly. “And you could leave at any time you saw fit. We wouldn’t try to stop you.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 12:52:38 PM
"Wait, no, that's not what Thomas said," Peggy said and pulled her hand out of his, since she was expressive when she spoke and moved her hands a lot, "He said you stay here a couple weeks and then you let him make his decision and you live with that decision  based on the new knowledge you gain. He did not promise that he was going to come home," she told her, wanting to make sure that Maggie understood completely. Thomas was going to stay  with  her. Peggy wasn't sure yet how she was going to manage it, but she knew that she wasn't going to just let him leave now that they'd been honest about their feelings. She then looked at Nico, "You will be respectful to everyone while they are our guests again." She then turned to Clara and grinned, "Thank you. You're a generous soul. Would you draft up a letter for me, saying that Master and Miss Juniper will be staying with us for the week and to have some things sent for them with my driver and have him go straight away to the Habedashery?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 12:58:39 PM
Maggie scowled at Peggy, in no way warmed up to the woman pulling her family apart. But at least a couple weeks alone with Nico...that she could get behind. She would put aside her differences for the time being. “I am fully capable of understanding the deal,” she said coldly. “I don’t need it explained to me.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 01:00:44 PM
Nico grumbled silently under his breath. He was so ready to be free of humans, and now there would be two more living with them. What was next? Renovating the mansion into an inn, allowing any old human to stay for the night? "I need another drink. Of alcohol," he added before anyone got the wrong idea.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 29, 2019, 01:03:12 PM
“Of course!” Clara said. She’d be happy to have more company again. Maybe some of them could tell her about what it was like out in the grand world now. All she has to go off of was the small bits of intel that made their way back to the house. Maybe Maggie could update her on fashion, Charles on the happenings.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 01:05:07 PM
Thomas glanced at Peggy, glad for her speaking up; he did not have the heart to tell Maggie that it probably would not matter what she and Charles said to him. He would probably choose to stay. As he looked at Peggy, he could not imagine choosing otherwise. Thomas turned his gaze to Charles, wondering what his brother was thinking, "Charles?" he asked cautiously
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 01:07:49 PM
"And then you can bottle the rest of the rye," Peggy told her groundskeeper. She then looked at Maggie and Charles, "Before you stay here, you should know, we do drink blood, but not...human. We have several farmed animals on hand. We give them a good life, keep them well fed and then twice a week we feed in a draining room in the basement. Do not enter that room. You will probably get very sick from the smell alone. Right, Thomas?" she asked, giving him a knowing glance.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 29, 2019, 01:11:18 PM
Clara got a bit closer to Charles, sending his incredible disapproval of it all. “We’re a lot more like humans than you’d think,” she said, her voice sweet as ever. “We were once just like you. We just had a strange twist in our lives.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 01:15:48 PM
Maggie crinkled her nose at the idea. There was a slaughterhouse inside the house? She was an adult and she could handle this. If Thomas had lived with it, so could she. “Just a few weeks,” she said, as if in reminder for herself. The idea of a drink was tempting, that was for sure. It was something she had gotten quite used to over the past year, drinking. “Where do you get your alcohol, What with prohibition?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 01:20:52 PM
Peggy looked at Maggie and smirked, "Oh, well, that's a little secret." she said and stepped a little closer to her, "You see...I do a couple different kinds of farming. It's not about where I get my alcohol. People get their alcohol from me. I have an underground distillery. Nico doesn't do so much groundskeeping as he does...bottling and crating."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 01:25:57 PM
Now that spiked her interest. Maggie leaned in as well, eyes sparkling. “You mean to say you have an unlimited supply of the stuff? I work at a speakeasy, we probably get supplied by you!”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 01:26:25 PM
"And testing the merchandise, don't forget that," Nico replied with a cheeky grin. He turned on his heel and headed down the hall, towards the distillery cellar to finish up his work for the following night.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 01:30:10 PM
Thomas shuddered at the memory of that mistake; the smell had been so terrible he'd been ill for days. The memory alone made his stomach clench uncomfortably. "I think you will come to enjoy your time here Maggie," Thomas said, "It is far more enjoyable than enduring our parents," he muttered under his breath. "wait, speakeasy! Maggie have you lost your mind?" Thomas demanded, staring at his sister with a disapproving frown, "That's illegal!"

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 01:33:18 PM
"I'm sure Nico could show you the distillery, if you'd like to see it. He probably wouldn't even mind the help," Peggy said to Maggie, but loud enough for Nico to hear. Peggy ran her fingers over Thomas' back, "She's young, it's not that big of a deal, and she's probably just a dancer or a cocktail waitress. She wouldn't even get arrested if caught."

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 01:35:13 PM
Maggie’s eyes got big at the prospect of being around that much liquor. “She’s right, Tommy, it’s no big deal. Speakeasies are the future!” She reaches out and took Peggy’s hand, easily charmed by the offer made. “I would love to help him.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 29, 2019, 01:36:09 PM
“What’s a speakeasy?” Clara asked.

Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 01:37:39 PM
Thomas was not assured, though he could say very little on the matter as he was planning on leaving everything he knew behind to live out his life with a vampire...which was probably more insane than working at an illegal establishment. "I still think it is unwise," he grumbled.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 01:49:25 PM
"Don't need any help," Nico called over his shoulder. "Not that I don't value our absolutely esteemed guests assistance," he added in a mocking tone. But really, what would she do? Drop things, probably. Humans were so clumsy.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 01:51:37 PM
Maggie rolled her shoulders back to improve her posture. “I’ll be helpful,” she promised, though it didn’t sound like she was looking for any approval. She was determined to do it now and nothing would stop her. She brushed past the others to go follow Nico. She gave him a cheeky wink.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 01:53:23 PM
"Run along with him. He's a true delight once you get past the salty coating," Peggy told Maggie and then looked to Clara, "Alcohol is illegal, so people have to sneak into secret bars to drink. It's very scandalous and fashionable." She then looked at Thomas, smiling softly at him.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 02:02:26 PM
Thomas restrained himself from running after his sister; he did not trust Nico alone with her. "She'll be alright with him, right Peggy?" Thomas asked
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 29, 2019, 02:02:56 PM

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 02:08:00 PM
Peggy looked at Clara and smiled, "I suppose with our human guides, we could take a venture out to see a speakeasy," she told her and then looked at Thomas. She was a little unsure about Nico, but shook her head, "Your sister has a good head on her shoulders and has stood up to him more than once. I think Nico is the one who should be afraid."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 02:18:44 PM
"Have human women l become this annoying?" Nico asked her, not slowing down as he reached the cellar door. "Afraid I haven't had the chance to talk to very many in the last couple of decades."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 02:21:27 PM
She gave him her most charming smile, following him in. “Oh no, darling, I am a truly unique woman.” She looked at the cellar, taking in everything there was. “You won’t find another woman like me.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 02:28:05 PM
"Well, thank heavens for small mercies," Nico replied coolly. He flicked on the cellar light, though he really didn't need it. The area was dark, cold, and gloomy. Definitely not the most inviting place. "Now do me a favour and stand over there, out of my way."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

Thomas laughed, "There are no truer words to describe my sister," he admitted.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 02:31:51 PM
Maggie scoffed and stood her ground, eyebrow raised in a challenge. “Oh no, Mister Nico, I think I’ll stay in the way. I am here to help after all.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 02:44:32 PM
Nico gave her a pointed glare. Oh, this was going to be a long, long couple weeks. "Fine, you want to help?" he challenged. "Start moving those crates over to the back cellar door. If you're strong enough to carry them, that is."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 02:51:11 PM
She held her chin high and sauntered over to the crates, lifting one (albeit not very high or gracefully) and started to move them slowly. “You know there are better ways to get me to follow your orders,” she said, attempting to be flirtatious through her shortened breaths.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 03:02:46 PM
Peggy chuckled and put her arm through Thomas', standing close to him. Why had it taken her so long to admit to him that she loved him? Had it been that inevitable feeling of separation? She looked at Charles, who still had yet to say anything and wondered how he would adapt to their home for the weeks.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 03:06:29 PM
"And you know, there are much better ways to spend your time than by harassing me," Nico retorted, lifting another crate with ease, as if it weighed nothing. The sound of her breathing was getting to him though, he had to admit. Same with the sound of her heartbeat; the rest of the distillery was silent except for her yammering and heart.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 03:09:29 PM
Watching him work so easily only got her more excited. The man of her literal dreams was in a room alone with her and there was no way she would let that go to waste. She could feel the blood pounding in her veins as she put the crate on the floor. “You’ll warm up to my ways.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 03:17:47 PM
Her heart rate was increasing. Why was it increasing? Was she scared? No, that wasn't it. He grit his teeth. It had been far too long since he'd tasted human blood, and one would think that he'd have lost his appetite for it, but that couldn't be further from the truth. In reality he found himself craving it more and more with each passing night. "You need to leave," he said suddenly. "Just... go back to your other bloodbags and I'll finish up here. Then you can warm me up to you, or whatever," he said with a dismissive wave.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 03:19:59 PM
[ok I’m gonna head to sleep so I’m gonna actually have her listen for once so y’all can keep going]

Maggie frowned and backed up, smart enough to recognize that he had taken on a more dangerous aura. “You trust me, I will.” She stepped out of the room, a little shaken by his adamant response.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 29, 2019, 03:22:19 PM
Charles wasn't sure what to say. He hated the idea of staying here, even for a short while. And the thought that his sister was suddenly so chummy with the very thing that tried to kill him, well his mood was just going even further south. He crossed his arms and glanced to Thomas and Peggy, his frown returning before he started walking to the front door.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 03:24:34 PM

Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 03:27:24 PM
"Charles, wait!" Thomas said, pulling away from Peggy reluctantly. He ran to his brother, grabbing his arm to stop him before Charles could talk out the door. "She's right Charles. they are no the monsters you think they are," Thomas insisted, "Please, just stay and you'll understand"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 03:41:50 PM
Nico took a deep breath, closing his eyes. He wasn't about to have a repeat of the last time the humans were around- it had been a wonder that Peggy hadn't skinned him alive. Once he had calmed down he returned to work, bottling and packing up everything quickly (far more quickly than if he'd had a human around to pester him). Once finished he left the cellar, finding Peggy and the others. "Everything's all set to go," he announced.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 29, 2019, 03:42:47 PM
"And if you got away from this place, you'd see that this is absolutely insane!" Charles pulled his arm away from him. "But fine. I'll stay if only to make sure our sister doesn't get eaten."

(Charles is going to be so angry with Thomas...)

"I cannot change the way I feel Charles," thomas siad, looking back at Peggy with a smile. It felt good to finally admit his love to her; he felt like a weight had been lifted from his shoulders. He sighed happily and returned his gaze to his brother, "Maggie will be fine. We can trust them. i've been here a whole year and never had a problem"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 03:49:22 PM
Peggy furrowed her brow, unimpressed with Charles attitude about everything, but sighed, "Good. I'm...at the very least glad you'll be here to the errors in your judgement from believing fairy stories." Peggy turned to Nico as he returned and nodded, "Thank you so much. You look like you need a drink...multiple kinds. Head downstairs, I'll meet you. Thomas, if you'd show your brother and sister to the guest bedroom next to yours."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 29, 2019, 03:58:27 PM

Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 04:03:32 PM
Thomas sighed, "Come on, I'll show you to the room," he siad, turning and leading Charles and (assuming) Maggie up the stairs and down the hall to the room next to his. He stopped at the door, looking at his brother with a frown; what had Charles been through the previous year? He did not seem like the easygoing brother who could never take anything seriously, "You are different," Thomas stated

Peggy started down the stairs and down to the draining room. They already had a decent bleed from their last kill, so she just took her glass and dipped it inside. She sat on the stairs and looked around her in the dark as she drank.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 04:19:45 PM
Nico gladly took his leave, heading down to the bleeding cellar. He definitely needed something to take his mind off of that sweet, sweet human blood. He found Peggy there but said nothing as he grabbed himself a glass, downing the morbid contents like someone dying of thirst.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 04:22:24 PM
Thomas could not argue with that observation, "I suppose I have. Can't you just be happy for me Charlie? For once in my life I feel like I can...breathe," Thomas said, struggling to find words to adequately describe it, "I...I do not think I could even go back to that shop," he confessed.

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 29, 2019, 04:30:49 PM
"You shouldn't have told him..." Peggy said quietly, fangs exposed, giving her an odd lisp, "But thank you..." She had to admit, Nico being blunt could sometimes be useful. She watched him drink so heartily and chuckled, "Do I need to go fetch you a goat?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 29, 2019, 04:36:12 PM
"Someone had to tell him, and it may as well have been me," Nico said. "Otherwise he'd have left, then you would have left us." He took another drink, shivering to himself. "No, no, I'll be fine. It's just," he paused, starting to pace around the room. "That human, the girl. She's playing with fire."

"Don't tell me another human has fallen  for another vampire  in  my home? And from the same family, perhaps it's something in their genealogy or the hat shop just makes them all that miserable," Peggy teased  him  and then finished  her drink. She cleaned her glass out and then watched him pace, "Or perhaps you just think that you're so wonderful that she'd enamored with  you. Either way, I'll tell Thomas to keep her out of your way."

Nico made a disgusted face. A human, of all things, attracted to him? Perish the thought. "She's clearly having very strong thoughts about me in some way," he grumbled. "You should have heard her heart rate down in the distillery."

"I'm worried about you, Thomas. This whole thing isn't...it's not right. That woman broke our family apart." Charles explained as calmly as he could, but his voice was nearly shaking.

Peggy gave him a knowing smile. She'd heard that familiar thump of a heartbeat when she'd touch  Thomas in  any minimal way. "Well, you just mind yourself. If you just disappear and don't talk to her, she won't fall hopelessly in love with you." she then laughed, "Imagine if I'd taken her for the year instead of Thomas." Peggy stood up and grabbed a towel from the bar cart, wiping her mouth delicately.

He shuddered at the thought. "With all due respect, Miss, please stop suggesting these things. You know how I feel about humans." He set his glass down, finally able to stand still as the cravings for human blood were satiated for the time being.

“She was doing what was necessary to protect herself and the others,” Thomas said, almost defensively, “look...I know this is difficult, but I really do love her Charles. She really is an incredible woman. I just hope that you will see that too in time.” Thomas said.

Peggy rolled her eyes at him and then nodded, "I will leave it be, but Nico, you should give them a chance. They're not as awful as they seem." she told him and then headed upstairs. She went up the second flight as well, heading to her bedroom, pulling out pajamas from her chest of drawers.

Charles made a face at the idea but sighed. "You seem to be a lost cause anyway. If this is what you want, then fine, but if anything at all happens to our sister...I don't know if I could forgive you for that. She can't get caught up in all of this, alright?"

“Maggie will be fine Charles. We need to stop treating her like a child, she is 19,” Thomas said. He knew that in the past he had been guilty of doing just that but Peggy’s words earlier made him realize that Maggie was a very capable young woman; she did not need their constant protection, “I promise you no harm will come of her. I...I would never forgive myself”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 29, 2019, 05:51:20 PM
"I know she's capable, Thomas," Charles snapped a bit. "I've actually been around her for the past year. But that doesn't mean something still won't happen."

Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 05:59:16 PM
Thomas winced at his brother’s jab, “I did not wish to be separated for a year Charles. I had to make a choice and staying behind so that you two wouldn’t have to seemed the best option. Would you rather we let Maggie stay? Or you?” Thomas demanded, “your big mouth would have gotten you killed in the first week ,” Thomas snapped. He did not appreciate being criticized for a sacrifice he made for them! Thomas groaned and walked towards his room, “I won’t let anything or anyone hurt you and Maggie,” Thomas said. He would rather die than live with that guilt

Post by: kristina-la on January 29, 2019, 06:06:39 PM
Thomas shook his head, frustrated and upset. It seemed like he and Charles would never see eye to eye. He went to his own room and flopped down on the bed

Post by: Emma-la on January 29, 2019, 11:10:23 PM
Maggie sat in her room, it was hers now for a while. She wished her brothers could see more eye to eye on things, but she supposed that had never happened. She was far too excited still by the days events, she was convinced she would never sleep.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 30, 2019, 02:18:55 AM
Peggy, a vampire and therefore having terrible luck at sleeping at night, decided that if her guests were to stay with her, they could get used to everyone else being awake during the night. She put the pajamas back in the drawer and then, once she heard that Thomas was back in his own room, gracefully and extra quietly walked over, gently knocking at the door.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 30, 2019, 02:26:00 AM
Charles was still fuming and was now far too wired to sleep. He paced in front of his bed, trying to decide what he wanted to do. He knew exactly what he did not want to do, and that was stay here. But he needed to make sure his sister would be alright, considering he didn't completely trust loverboy to make any good judgement calls.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 30, 2019, 02:38:50 AM
Thomas went to the door and was greatly relieved to see Peggy standing there. He did not have any more energy or patience left to deal with either of his siblings. A smile broke out on his face, “Couldn’t sleep?” He asked; he’d become accustomed  to their late night conversations.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 30, 2019, 02:55:15 AM
Peggy chuckled lightly and stepped into his room, looking around his room, glad to see it becoming his own space and not just the generic room it has been. She then turned to him and sighed, "Actually I need to talk to you about Maggie. Apparently her annoying Nico is more than just a little childish pestering. He said her heart was racing when they were alone."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 03:20:45 AM
Maggie was far too restless for sleep, and exploring the bedroom had run its course. So instead, she snuck out, taking care to be quiet, heading down the stairs to look through the place. She had gotten very used to being up late with her job, so she made her way to the kitchen and looked for something to drink.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 03:53:34 AM
Nico was sitting in the kitchen, his thirst for blood quenched but his thirst for alcohol still strong. He was sipping on a rather strong rye when he heard someone approach. Lo and behold, it was the girl. He let out a heavy sigh and got up, deciding then was a good a time as any to head to his room. Avoiding her seemed like the best option in everyone's case.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 04:02:28 AM
When Maggie saw him get up to leave, she instinctively reached out to grab his arm. “There’s no need to leave,” she said quickly. “I’m just here for some of that.” She pointed at his glass of rye.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 30, 2019, 04:06:18 AM
Thomas rubbed the bridge of his nose as he walked back to the bed and sat down. He had trust that Nico would not do anything to Maggie purposefully, but what if he lost control? "No wonder she agreed to staying with such little fuss," Thomas said with a groan, "Thank you for letting me know. I'll keep an eye on her. If...anything were to happen to maggie I do not think i could ever forgive myself," Thomas said, flopping back on the bed with a sigh. Charles would probably never forgive him
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 04:12:50 AM
Nico tensed when she grabbed his arm, clenching his teeth. He'd thought his thirst had been satiated, but apparently not enough. He pulled his arm away. "There's a bottle in the cupboard under the sink," he told her. "Knock yourself out."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 04:18:00 AM
Maggie didn’t let go of his arm, stepping closer to him. “Pour me a glass?” The words were a question, but her tone wasn’t. Her eyes roamed him, smiling devilishly. “It wouldn’t be right to leave me alone with the booze.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 04:35:18 AM
Nico scowled at her. Out of all the people in the household she had to get the hots for, it had to be him. "Fine," he grumbled, turning back into the kitchen. "Just because I don't trust you not to drink all of it."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 04:38:36 AM
She smiled triumphantly and sat down at the table, watching him do what she asked. It felt powerful, to have him actually do as she said, even though he was a vampire who could kill her.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 04:49:11 AM
He poured her a glass, pushing it over to her, taking a swig from the bottle himself. "Isn't it past your bed time?" He asked her suddenly.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 30, 2019, 04:49:49 AM
Peggy looked at Thomas and frowned a bit, “I’m sorry. I told him to just avoid her, so I hope they won’t be running into each other.” She then decided to change the conversation a little and sat down beside him on the bed, turning slightly and running her fingers over his chest, “I must admit...It’s been a long time since someone’s been romantic with me. Please, tell me, how scandalous is it to be in a young man’s bedroom without being married?” She teased.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 04:52:06 AM
She took a hearty sip of the drink before shrugging and leaning back in her chair. “I’ve grown accustomed to my late nights, working late, meeting people...” she trailed off, knowing that was as good as life got at home. “So no. My bedtime is far later than this.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 05:05:46 AM
"When did I ask for details on your life story?" Nico replied, hopping up to sit on the counter. All he'd wanted was peace and quiet. Humans talked way too much.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 30, 2019, 05:07:56 AM
Thomas grinned, “oh I’d say quite scandalous,” he replied, enjoying the closeness and tenderness of her touch. He looked up at her, his heart thumping away in his chest; it felt so freeing to be with her in such a way, no longer denying their feelings for one another.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 05:09:53 AM
Maggie wouldn’t be deterred so easily, many men had that aggressive and prickly outward appearance. But that didn’t matter to her. She sauntered over to stand in front of him, heartbeat once again picking up at the thrill of doing something she knew she shouldn’t. She downed the rest of her drink before speaking. “There are alternatives to talking.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 30, 2019, 05:16:31 AM
Peggy could hear his heartbeat and felt herself getting an odd, ancient feeling in herself. She looked away from him and held her jaw tightly. She swallowed roughly but then pushed the feeling down, putting her hand over her mouth to keep the fangs from emerging.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 05:23:47 AM
Her heart was racing again. It was so loud, yet so delicate. Like a little bird. He covered his mouth with his hand, looking away. He could control himself, he knew he could. The only question was, could she? "Leave," he ordered, still pointedly avoiding her gaze.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 05:27:17 AM
She was not going to let him do this for a second time. “No,” she said firmly, stepping closer and placing her hands on either side of him on the counter. He couldn’t scare her away. She wouldn’t let him.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

Peggy nodded and pulled her hand down, "It's nothing..." she lied and then  turned back to him and smiled. She was happy to be with him. She wanted to be with him forever, but could she make that sacrifice? Could she let  him become like them?
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 05:41:16 AM
Nico finally dared a look at her. It was like she was baiting him, begging him to bite her. Was this their plan? To prove yet again what a monster he was? He growled softly, unable to help himself as he grabbed her roughly by the arms. He pulled her close, nuzzling the crook of her neck, breathing in the sweet scent of her skin and blood. He gently traced his tongue along her throat, holding her even tighter, harder. Not much, just enough to spook her. Maybe then she'd learn enough to leave him alone.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 05:43:24 AM
[too bad for Nico, Maggie is kind of a freak]

Maggie shuddered at the feel of his strong hands and his mouth on her neck. She had done her fair share of necking in the past, and this was like an elevated version of it. The danger of the whole situation only served to excite her more.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 30, 2019, 05:47:32 AM
Thomas did not believe her but said nothing more about it. He reached out, tenderly running his thumb along her cheek, "I am so very happy that I stayed with you," Thomas said. He could not imagine feeling any different in a few weeks time.

<**let's be real, they're both morons :p**>

He had anticipated her fighting back, struggling, something. Not enjoying it. It was getting to be too much. He should have pushed her away, demanded that all of the humans leave at once. And yet...

He couldn't help himself. Just a little taste wouldn't hurt, right? If that didn't get his message through to her then he didn't know what would. His fangs descended, and he brought them down onto the area where her throat met her shoulder, piercing the skin with ease.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 05:53:55 AM
The sudden pain in her neck was shocking and she let out a cry but it quickly died in her throat, hand coming up to grip his arm weakly, as if to fend him off. She had not factored this into her plan.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 06:02:47 AM
She was struggling now. He should have stopped but he just... couldn't. That animalistic need had overcome him. He needed to feed on human, and had longed to do so for years. His mind clouded, the smell and taste of blood the only thing he was able to think about as he fed, still gripping her tightly.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 06:06:11 AM
Maggie struggled a bit more for a few minutes, feeble useless attempts. He had proven earlier just how much stronger he was than her. After a few minutes, she started to feel lightheaded from the lost blood and she started to go limp.

Post by: kristina-la on January 30, 2019, 06:06:33 AM

Peggy smiled at him, taking his face in her hands and leaning up, her lips nearly touched his when she stopped and pulled away, an eerie but calling smell hitting her. She suddenly stood up and looked around them, confused. She then looked at the door and her heart lept, "Nico!" she called loudly as she ran into the hall and hurried down the stairs, "Nico!" she screamed again. It was blood. Human blood. A lot of it. "Charles?! Maggie?!"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 06:19:46 AM
He slowly dropped to his knees, still holding her, still feeding, much to far gone to stop now. Until he heard his name being called. It was Peggy. She sounded frantic. But why? Then reality hit him like a stake to the heart. He pulled away instantly, staring down at the girl's limp form in his arms. "Sh*t..." he hissed, wiping his mouth on his sleeve.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 30, 2019, 06:24:15 AM
Thomas sprang up from the bed and ran after Peggy, not liking the frantic tone in her voice as she called out for Nico and his siblings. He immediately thought of the worst as he ran down the hall, trying to keep up with her.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 30, 2019, 06:35:33 AM
Peggy stumbled into the kitchen, the dark room as bright as day to her. She looked behind her and shouted at Thomas, “DON’T LOOK!” She told him and then turned back, scared. She bent down furrowing her brows, “Nico....” she looked at the bloody mess in his arms. Her own eyes grew a glowing yellow, her pupils wide, fangs emerging. She shook her head and growled, reaching over and grabbing Nico by the hair on the nape of his neck and pulled him away, “You moron!!! You’ve nearly killed her!!!” She shuddered as she looked down at Maggie and she shook her head, “We....we can let her die.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 06:45:06 AM
Nico cried out when she wrenched him away, finally fully free of his bloodlust. "I-I-" he stammered, staring down at the girl. He could hardly feel her heart beat now. "It's not my fault! She... she..." He shouldn't have been left alone with her. "So what do you propose we do?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 30, 2019, 06:52:26 AM
Thomas stopped at the entrance to the kitchen, his heart beating rapidly. He knew it would be wise to listen to Peggy but he could not stop himself from entering the kitchen. When he saw his sister, covered in blood and limp in Nico's arms he felt his knees buckle. "No..." was all he could get out as his knees hit the ground.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 30, 2019, 06:55:15 AM
“Not your fault? This isn’t your fault?! I haven’t let any of you have human blood as long as you’ve been here. You aren’t even the youngest vampire!!! Clara is! I expected more. I expected you to stay away from her like I told you to! You are stronger, faster than girl ever was. You have no excuse!” She told him. She was just mostly just angry at him because she was sure Thomas would never stay now. That he would be so angry at her. She took a deep breath and looked at Maggie’s dying form. She then took Nico’s arm and using her teeth, ripped open the skin on his wrist and pushed him towards her, “Do it. Turn her.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 07:03:11 AM
Nico hissed in protest as Peggy bit him. "You... you want me to what?" he exclaimed, but by her tone he knew she was serious. He had never sired anyone before, and had honestly planned not too, but he was in too deep and knew better than to defy his Mistress. He'd already screwed up far worse than last time. So he carefully brought his wrist to the girl's lips, allowing his blood to flow into her mouth.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 07:07:50 AM

“Take her to the blood cellar. I’ll send Clara with a goat.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 07:17:54 AM
Nico silently got to his feet, cradling the girl against his chest. She was already so cold- almost as cold as him, though the change hadn't set in fully yet. He carried her out of the kitchen and down to the blood cellar, setting her gently onto the floor once there.

Thomas had wanted to protest when Peggy ordered Nico to turn Maggie. He did not want this life for her! but...the thought of losing her was too much to bear so he let it happen. Thomas said nothing as Peggy pushed him to the stairs, too shocked and horrified to do much else besides listen to her. His baby sister. He'd promised himself and Charles that nothing would happen. He made it up the stairs somehow, he barely remembered walking from the kitchen to the second floor. "I promised..." he mumbled, eyes filling up with tears

Nico sunk to the floor, head in his hands. He wasn't ready for this. Oh, he definitely wasn't ready for this. Sireing someone was a huge responsibility. He let out a heavy sigh and a string of curses, looking over at the girl's squirming form. "Why couldn't you have just left me alone?" he asked softly.

As the transformation became complete, Maggie’s eyes opened in a squint, her hand coming up the touch her neck absently as she sat up. The only thing on her mind was her intense need, she was starving. Her senses were assaulted by the different smells of animal bloods and her eyes darkened, darting around her. She had no clue how to proceed.

Peggy pushed Thomas into Charles room and then stared at him and tears just poured down her face, “I never should have said they should stay. I shouldn’t have kept you for the last year. I shouldn’t have let you in. I shouldn’t have....” she wiped her tears, “I’m sorry. I’m sorry. You and Charles have to go. You have to leave and never ever come back.”

Thomas barely registered her words; he could not get the image of his sister out of his mind.

He should never have suggested that his siblings stay

Maggie finished the second cup and placed it on the floor beside her, taking a moment to enjoy her clear mind now that she was sated. But with a clear mind she was able to take a moment to understand exactly what had happened.

Having her orders, Clara made her way to the cellar, fresh killed goat in her hands. She figured it would be easier if she killed it outside and brought it in; Maggie probably would have drained it alive as a newborn. And then, if it wasn’t finished now, it could be drained and had later. When she entered the room, she saw Maggie attack Nico. Normally, she would have helped, but in this case, this was entirely Nico’s fault. He’d have to handle it himself.

Nico struggled to push her off now that she was just as strong as he was. "I had to!" he exclaimed. "You pushed me into it! I could have killed you, but Peggy wanted you to be one of us."

Her eyes became dark and animalistic as Maggie pushed against him harder, ready to rip him limb from limb. “You should have just left me,” she spat out. “You’ve taken everything.”

"Calm down it's not that bad," Nico snapped, raising his hands defensively. "We couldn't just let you die. What would your brothers have thought?" They'd sent an angry mob, raised the alarm, destroyed the mansion and everyone in it. "I gave you a gift, okay? All I took was your weakness."

Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 01:59:33 PM
His words gave her pause, her grip on him loosening a little. “I didn’t ask for that. I just wanted to flirt with you.” She could still feel blood on her lips. She wanted anything but this life.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 30, 2019, 02:02:45 PM
Clara stepped a bit closer now, but was slow, not wanting to startle the newborn. “It isn’t so bad,” she said gently. “Sorry, Miss Peggy wanted to make sure you had well enough to eat, so I’ve brought this. Would you like it now, or later?” She sent the goat down.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 02:09:48 PM
Nico shook his head in disbelief. "Flirt? With a vampire? How on earth did you think that would end." He then noticed Clara, and the goat. "You need to feed more," he told the girl. "Your hunger is at an all time high right now."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 02:11:23 PM
Maggie was beginning to get overwhelmed and started to feel surrounded. She pulled herself away from Nico and grabbed the goat, backing herself into a corner of the room. “I want to see my brothers,” she said, nails digging into the animals flesh.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 30, 2019, 02:16:04 PM
Clara eyed Nico warily. He should have been more controlled. She then looked at Maggie. “That... wouldn’t be wise. Not right now. Not until you’ve settled a little.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 30, 2019, 02:23:13 PM
"If you come across a human now, you will kill them," Nico told her. "Tear them apart, not even being turned will save them. So no. Just sit tight and drink up for now."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 02:47:25 PM
Maggie would have argued but she was too consumed by her hunger, and her fangs were sunk into the goats flesh in seconds, savagely tearing into it and sucking out the blood. She came up for air about halfway through, blood covering her chin. “I would never harm my brothers.” It was hardly convincing, and she dove back in to finish off the animal.

“You wouldn’t be able to control it,” Clara replied, watching her feed. She remembered her first night as a vampire. She had starved through the day and come out at night, draining a cow right away before several chickens.

"What's going on?" Charles demanded. Seeing his brother so upset had him really shaken, and he looked frantically between Thomas and Peggy.

Post by: Emma-la on January 30, 2019, 03:28:55 PM
Maggie came away from the goat, having sucked it dry. Her eyes flicked to the door behind Clara and she considered just making a run for it. These people couldn’t keep her cooped up in here like a prisoner. In a split second her decision was made and she was running for the door.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 30, 2019, 03:37:38 PM
“No,” Clara said, moving very quickly to block the door and bodychecking Maggie in the process. “Do you want to kill them? Do you want them to die?”

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 30, 2019, 03:54:49 PM
Peggy looked at Charles and then stepped in front of Thomas. “Your sister had been stalking Nico, trying to get his attention. She pushed too close to him and he...he bit her and turned her.” She said and swallowed. Not quite the truth but better than a lie.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 30, 2019, 04:32:50 PM
Charles stared at her, not fully registering what she was saying. When it finally sunk in, he saw red.
"Where is he? I'm going to kill him," he growled, going to throw the door open.

Peggy grabbed his  arms  and shook his head, "No, no! You can't go out there! You can't be anywhere near Maggie during this time. She's hungry...and you'll be nothing but a meal to her," she said and then swallowed and looked away, "Charles...I can't..." She ran her hand over her face, "I'm so sorry. And  I know you won't forgive me, but we saved her."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 30, 2019, 05:14:52 PM
Thomas lifted his head, daring to look at his brother. Thomas shared Charles' anger; he wanted Nico to pay for what he did to Maggie but Thomas was more angry with himself. "It's not your fault Peggy," Thomas said, "Staying was my idea," Thomas whispered. If anyone deserved Charles' wrath, it was him.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 30, 2019, 05:32:54 PM
"Saved her? Saved her? How dare you even think that?!" Charles spat at her, ignoring Thomas. "You have done nothing but tear my family apart! And you have the audacity to say that you're capable of saving someone? You've damned her! And you!" He turned to Thomas, hot tears of anger and anguish welling in his eyes. "You promised me! You... you promised! Both of you are nothing but selfish, and you've damned our little sister!" He was shouting now, his fists balling up at his sides.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 30, 2019, 05:45:24 PM
Thomas remained quiet as Charles unleashed his grief and anger on him. In his mind, he deserved all the blame; he had made a promise to Charles that no harm would befall their sister if they chose to stay at the mansion with him. Not even a few hours later, their sister was essentially dead. “I’m sorry,” Thomas whispered; he meant those words but knew it would not be enough. It would never be enough.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on January 31, 2019, 12:32:39 AM
Maggie hit the floor and glared up at Clara. “Of course I don’t want them to die! But I won’t stay here forever, some sick prisoner of yours!” She advanced once again on Clara, eyes deadly. “This was not my choice and you can’t keep me here.” She kept her hands bared like claws, ready to scratch and bite her way out of this hell house.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on January 31, 2019, 01:24:59 AM
“You aren’t a prisoner, you will be able to leave,” Clara said. “But, in a few days, once the thirst has subsided and you’ll be safe among humans.” She stepped in front of Maggie again, blocking her from exiting, before glancing at Nico, hoping for a bit of help.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 31, 2019, 04:26:17 AM
Nico stepped in front of her as well. "Look, you will absolutely kill a human at some point. It's not a matter of if, but when," he told her. "Do you really want it to be one of your brothers?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 31, 2019, 05:06:25 AM
"She sought Nico out from the moment she entered this house! She went after him, following, wanting him. Your sister pushed him, knowing he was volatile after your last visit! I told him to stay away and he will be punished thoroughly, but I...I didn't want you to lose her, not when Thomas already wants to stay," Peggy explained and then turned, looking at the door, stopping to listen. It seemed things were calm downstairs.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2019, 05:22:13 AM
"What, now both of my siblings get to stay here? Oh yes, you've really saved me a lot of grief, your good deed for the decade I assume. Wonderful then, you've gotten what you wanted, Peggy!" Charles laughed, but it was humorless. "A human to keep you entertained and a new monster to order around, I'd imagine you're quite pleased that you've managed to completely ruin a family." He began pacing, practically ripping out his hair.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 31, 2019, 05:31:07 AM
Peggy looked over at him and glared, "You didn't have to stay here. You could have just let Thomas do as he liked and stayed with me. You could have just accepted that Thomas didn't want to go home with you anymore and be his father's worker. You've hated it yourself, haven't you? And you thought you could just come back here, pick up Thomas and take him home to replace you so you'd magically have the freedom to do whatever the hell you want with your life,' Peggy said and stood tall, staring Charles down, "But oh no, poor Charles, your brother  didn't want to come home. He deserves better than to have to run  a dying hat shop that he hates. So you have to stay and convince him somehow that this isn't  the life he wants, so you can do off on your grand adventure. You probably think you deserve to find love, but you'd rip that away from your own brother, you selfish twit. You should have just taken Maggie and went home, but now, look at the predicament you're in."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2019, 05:47:24 AM
"Oh, I'm selfish? I am? Tommy never said anything about not wanting to work for our father, how was I supposed to know that! And I didn't want him to replace me, I just wanted him home!" His voice was starting to break and he pressed his hand to his face as he gritted his teeth to hold his tears back.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 31, 2019, 05:51:42 AM
"Why? Why would you want him to come home when he's been happier here for the last year that he ever was back there?!" Peggy snapped and then stepped back, shaking her head. "I'm...I'm going to go check on Maggie. Do NOT leave this room until you want to die. And I don't mean become one of us, I mean Maggie will kill you and there will nothing I can do to stop her." Peggy told him and then left the room, slamming the door behind her. She headed down the stairs and then down, down to the cellar, quickly going in the door and closing and locking it behind her, staring at Maggie when she entered and how she was fighting the other two.

Charles winced as the door slammed. Why was he being made out to be the enemy? He hadn't killed anyone! He hit his fist against the door in anger and finally let the tears he'd been holding back flow down his cheeks.

Post by: kristina-la on January 31, 2019, 07:20:49 AM
Thomas was grateful for Peggy standing up for him, but it did little to lessen his guilt. Thomas got up from the floor and went to Charles, pulling his brother into a hug; he could not bear to see his brother weep. "I'm sorry," he whispered, "I was wrong. I should have told you both to just go back home," he said as he choked back his own sobs. "I know you will probably never forgive me and that is fine; I do not deserve your forgiveness," he whispered shakily.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 31, 2019, 07:32:20 AM
Nico stiffened when Peggy entered the room. He could only begin to imagine what his punishment would be... "She's fed," he said finally. "And now she wants to see her brothers. We told her no."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2019, 07:41:52 AM
Charles hugged him back, and wept openly into his brother's shoulder. He wanted to hate him, but this wasn't Tommy's fault. He started to calm down and pulled away. "You're an idiot," he said, wiping furiously at his eyes. "But you didn't kill our sister. You don't need me to forgive you for that. But I can't...I can't accept you being with that...woman. Not when this is what we're left with."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on January 31, 2019, 07:45:19 AM
"This is not Peggy's fault either Charles," Thomas replied, "This is Nico's fault, for lacking control and it is our sister's fault for trying to seduce a vampire," Thomas said firmly. Had he known his sister fancied the groundskeeper, he would have told them to go home rather than stay.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 31, 2019, 07:52:38 AM

Thomas shook his head, “and what would that have accomplished? They surely would not have believed you. Father would probably have you committed,” Thomas pointed out. “I doubt you would have been able to provide directions back to this place either”

Post by: MercyResurrected on January 31, 2019, 08:23:14 AM
Peggy didn't  even acknowledge Nico. She made her way to Maggie and lifted her chin, "If you still wish  to die child, instead of this life with us, then I can arrange it. But if you think that by saving you and giving you this second chance, I will never turn you away. Nor will I treat you as a servant. I sure I can arrange a way for you be still  be a dancer and a drink  girl in a night time speakeasy, maybe even find you a  secluded apartment  in the east end of the city, but first, you have to learn to control your hunger." She then looked at Nico, "I should make you drink the essence yourself. I should tie you up and put you out in the sun. You have taken her life and for  that... you owe me a life."

Nico shrunk under her gaze, feeling that rare inkling of fear that popped up once every so often. "My life, then?" he dare to ask. Of course, what else could it have been? How else would he make up for what he had done?

Post by: kristina-la on January 31, 2019, 08:44:11 AM
Thomas sighed, "Well, we cannot go back now," Thomas said, "What's done is done," Thomas said as he watched Charles carefully, "I...I wish I could have done something differently to avoid this but all I can do now if live with the guilt. I truly am sorry Charles," Thomas said, eye welling up with tears again

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 31, 2019, 08:59:06 AM
Nico frowned. So that was it, then. He was going to die. All for doing what their kind were supposed to do. He said nothing more, lowering his head as a thousand different plans of escape raced through his mind. He had to leave, had to get out. There were still a few hours before sunrise, if he moved fast he'd probably be able to find shelter. Of course, getting past Peggy and everyone else in the household would be a problem...
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on January 31, 2019, 09:02:50 AM
Peggy looked at Nico and rolled her eyes, "Perhaps you could....state your case before the house  and we, as a house, could decide what is to be done with you." She wasn't heartless and she honestly wasn't sure if she could purposely go about killing Nico.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on January 31, 2019, 09:09:30 AM
"A trial?" Nico scoffed. "Oh, yes, because it's not clear enough to everyone that I'm guilty." It seemed like more of a way to mock him. But, of course, if it offered even the slightest hope that he'd be allowed to live...

Maggie could feel tears threatening to fall, desperate to just be able to see her brothers. She hadn’t wanted any of this, but now she would have to find a way to endure. “Please, Peggy, I’m not hungry any more. I want to see my brothers.” She couldn’t imagine how stupid they thought her to be. And she didn’t want to spend another minute under the watchful gaze of Nico. In ruining her own life, it seemed she had ruined his as well.

Peggy looked at Maggie and shook her head, "I killed my own brother when I was first turned. I won't let you do the same. It's just two days. I promise, you will see them again, but you need to stay well fed." Peggy said and then looked at the girl, frowning, "I wish I knew a way to fix it."

Maggie blinked and a couple of tears fell onto her cheeks, despite her resistance to crying in front of the others. “At least...tell me what’s happened. Tommy, Charles...are they upset with me? Do they even want to see me?” She wipes her tears away hurriedly. “I can only imagine Charles will hate the thought of seeing me like this.”

Peggy’s touch seemed to break something in Maggie and she pressed her face against the woman’s shoulder, trying to hide the tears now flowing freely. “I’ve gone and ruined everything. I’m so stupid, I’ve always been too stupid,” She sniffled.

Peggy opened her arms and looked down at the girl, surprised and looked at Nico and Clara for a moment in surprise before she closed her arms around Maggie and held her closely, fingers gently running through her hair, "I'm sorry." she whispered and put her head down on Maggie's, "I just wanted to show you that Thomas was happy here. I never intended for you to get harmed."

She tried to pull herself together, knowing this was not how she intended to look in front of these people. She had purposely put forward a strong and confident version of herself, but with everything that had happened she felt like nothing more than a scared and confused little girl and all she wanted was to be comforted by her brothers, be told it would all be okay. Finally, she pulled away, wiping at her eyes furiously and sniffling. She didn’t explain anything she was feeling, instead setting her jaw and looking anywhere but at the vampires around her.

"Maggie, I know this is new and scary. We've all been where you are. None of us asked for this to happen to us. My father refused my betrothal to his business partner, so he thought if he turned me, I would have to come with him, but he didn't understand that hunger a new vampire has and was frightened after I started  to kill...so he ran away and I was left to fend for myself in a new body with  strength and a need that I couldn't fulfill. My parents locked me in a cellar for five years to punish me for killing my brother." Peggy  gently stroked Maggie's face, "I'm not gonna let you be treated by a monster. You didn't chose this. I....I chose this for you instead of letting you die. If you are going to be upset, be upset with me."

Peggy looked at Maggie and thought it over, taking a deep breath. "I suppose...I could be strong enough to hold you back. The three of us could easily overpower you. I just...don't like the idea."

Maggie's eyes were manic when they settled on her brothers, the scent of them driving her mad. She instinctively tugged her arm, trying to run at them, but luckily Peggy's grip on her was vicelike. She had to keep her wits about her, and she couldn't get out a word because her entire focus was built into ignoring her urges to attack.

Peggy immediately put her other arm around Maggie, holding her around her waist and gripping her close, "Shh, shh, calm down. Calm down." She knew Maggie just needed to see them, her brothers. But, this is what she was worried about with Thomas too. She couldn't imagine changing him and having to fight this kind of desire.

Thomas had moved to the other side of the room with Charles. When peggy opened the door, revealing his sister beside her, he swallowed hard and restrained himself from running to her. She was covered in blood and he knew it was probably not just her own. "Maggie..." Thomas choked out, struggling to hold back another flood of tears. The way she was looking at him and Charles, like they were a meal, it was unsettling. It forced him to really consider if he wanted to become like her voluntarily. What fool would choose that?

Nico was waiting outside the room, figuring his presence would just send her brothers into a furious tizzy, and all of that adrenaline and raised heart rates would help nobody. So he stood just outside the door, still contemplating just running. After all, they were all distracted...

Thomas sighed, “I saw, and it was unsettling but she is still my little sister and nothing is going to changed that.” Thomas looked over at Clara as she entered the room with sandwiches and tea; his stomach clenched at the smell.

Peggy took Maggie's clothes and handed them to Nico, "Maggie's old clothes can be put in the fireplace. The smell needs to be removed immediately. Then clean up your mess in the kitchen.

Nico took his leave, heading down to the main hall. There was already a fire going so he tossed the old clothing into the flames, closing the grate behind them, before heading into the kitchen. There was blood all over the floor. He'd truly made a mess of things, in more ways than one. He almost felt the need to admire his handiwork, though; it had been a long time since he'd felt that alive.

Peggy grabbed some coconut oil shampoo she'd discovered recently, a new hit of the 20's, and after pouring some water over Maggie's hair with a pitcher, started to get off some of the dried blood from the ends and the front, "I had all of your clothes sent for for the two weeks you'd be staying here. I can always have a catalog brought for you though, if you'd like some new things. Things maybe your...parents wouldn't approve of," trying to make Maggie feel more at ease with a new life.

Cleaning up the blood hadn't been that difficult- he'd had to clean up after himself dozens of times in the past, after all. Once he was finished he found himself heading out to the back porch, staring out into the forest that surrounded their home. Home... Was that really what this place was? Sure he had shelter and a steady supply of (animal) blood, but had it ever really felt like home? No, not really. He was always the odd one out. The vampire who actually revelled in what they were.

"Strength, speed, the immortality of course, and um..."

I mean he knows, but I've never done it in front of him." Peggy stood up and with ease, became a bat, her clothing falling to the ground. She swooped around the room a few times and then landed back at her clothing, becoming herself again and breathing hard.

Peggy smirked again, but then it faded into a frown, "I never wanted this for you. I'm very sorry Maggie. I explained to Charles, I just wanted Thomas to be happy. I know he hates working for your father and I wanted you two to see that he had a good life here," she told her, "I never would have refused your visits or ever for Thomas to come see you."

Maggie refused to break down again, so she stood from the tub, looking for a towel to dry off with. “I know this isn’t what you wanted. It’s not what I wanted. But I can’t blame you, I don’t think I would have been able to just let me die if I were in your position.”

Peggy got up and brought Maggie a towel and looked at her, trying to smile. She then turned and went out to her bedroom, going to the wardrobe to pull her only flapper dress and a bra and some bloomers, putting them on the bed, "Give it a try." she told her. She then sat on the bed and laid back, staring at the ceiling. Closing her eyes, she just thought of Thomas' face of disgust and fear as he saw Maggie. Surely now he'd refuse to become a vampire....

Post by: Emma-la on February 01, 2019, 05:56:45 AM
Maggie pulled the dress on, it was a little too long but not too bad overall. It was the style she mooned over. She noticed that Peggy was no longer looking and it seemed like perhaps this was her chance to just run. What she could do, she didn’t know, but despite all of the woman’s kindness she still felt the need to just run.

Peggy looked over at Maggie and raised her eyebrow, "Look at that.

The more he thought about it, the more he realized that there was nothing for him in that house. He was an outsider, always had been, and he'd be an idiot to believe that his fate, even with a trial, wasn't already sealed. He was going to be put to death for acting how their kind were supposed to act. How was that fair.

He turned his attention to the sky. Still a couple hours before the sun started to rise. That was more than enough time to get safely away and find some shelter. He'd weighed the pros and cons well enough, and without another thought he started off, leaving the manor behind in the distance.

He made it quite far, well past the boundaries of the property, and hadn't heard anyone behind him. He wasn't being followed. Clearly they didn't care, or more likely they hadn't noticed.

Peggy raised an eyebrow and shrugged, “Of course. The doors will be locked. I will be the only one with a key. Thomas can speak with you through the door and after two days, we’ll see how you two do standing in a room together,” she offered.

Charles took a deep breath, but then he stood and looked at the door. "I'd rather not drag this out, so I'll ankle on out soon as we get the clear," he said.

Ralph quietly stepped out of the room and closed the door. "Sweet Mary, Mother of God, what a mess. He said to Clara, shaking his head.

Maggie nodded dumbly. “That would be amazing. And perhaps I could convince acharles to stay. He doesn’t want to work for our parents any more than Thomas did.”

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 01, 2019, 03:49:35 PM
"But...what would your parents think if all their children just...didn't come home?" Peggy asked, a bit concerned. She pat the bed beside her, "Come sit. I'm going to get the boys to talk to you."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 01, 2019, 03:52:39 PM
The thought of her parents crushed Maggie. How could she never go home again? Never see her parents. She sat down on the bed, starting to feel that overwhelming feeling again. “I guess I’m being selfish. They’ve already lost Thomas and now me.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 01, 2019, 04:01:34 PM
Peggy stopped and looked at the door before turning back, "Maggie...You know Thomas better than I do, perhaps." she was wringing her hands together, "He looked...horrified when he saw you earlier. And I think...he may be reconsidering staying with me." Peggy took a deep breath, "Should I send him home too?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 01, 2019, 04:04:37 PM
Maggie couldn’t even try to entertain the thought, she was too selfish. “Not if he still wants to stay. He’s very good at making decisions, he always has been. Part of being the eldest. If he can’t stand to become what I have, he’ll leave.” It would probably be better for him to leave. But the thought of her entire family being gone where she couldn’t freely visit them made her feel ill.

Peggy  looked down at the ground, vulnerable for a moment, "I don't think...I could watch Thomas grow old. I've tried  it before...and it's so difficult every time. And something's different about Thomas...everything about him heightens me."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 01, 2019, 04:13:04 PM
[i miss him already 😭 bring my baby back]

Maggie sighed and drew her feet up towards herself. “Thomas will make the right decision. He always knows what’s best.” She ran a hand through her hair. “I don’t want to watch him grow old either, I’m the wrong person to ask if you want me to tell you not to turn him.”

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 01, 2019, 04:23:52 PM
Peggy nodded and then chuckled, "Right. I suppose it would be difficult to watch your older brother outgrow you so immensley," she said and went over to the stairway to the library and closed the door, locking it. She then headed to the main door to the room, "Are you gonna be alright while I get the boys?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 01, 2019, 04:25:23 PM
Maggie nodded. “I’ll not cause a fuss,” she promised. “Do whatever you need to.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 01, 2019, 04:39:37 PM
Peggy looked at her and then with ease, left the room and swiftly closed and locked the door behind her. She went over to the boy's room and knocked on the door before entering, "Maggie wants to talk to you two. She'll be staying in my room the next few days while her hunger subsides. Clara, Ralph, can I have one of you bring something to drink for Maggie. Leave it in the library."

Thomas did not want to see Charles go but knew it was for the best, "We should probably discuss what you'll tell our parents," Thomas said before Peggy walked in. He drew a deep breath as his mind went back to Maggie and that look of pure animalistic hunger in her eyes. He shuddered involuntarily. "How is she?" Thomas asked
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

Peggy looked at them both  and shrugged, "Better. We got her cleaned up and in new clothes  and she's as right as rain. Just...still on the attacking side. It just takes time," she promised. She then sighed, "She wants to talk to both of you. And I believe she wants Charles to stay as well."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 01, 2019, 05:23:25 PM
<**yeah that could work :P**>

He reached the outskirts of the nearby town in record time, with still plenty of time before the sun rose. He slowed his pace as he strolled through the empty streets, every last human now asleep in the wee hours of the morning. Humming softly to himself, he began scoping out a place to hide out for the night, and that's when it hit him: the unmistakable stench of human blood. Having just recently fed it didn't send him into a tizzy, but it drew his curiosity enough that he decided to investigate.

Peggy  looked at them and nodded. She turned around, opening the door to lead them to talk to their sister, but she paused and turned back, looking at the  brothers, "What if I talk to them? I could go with you three to talk to them. Tell them that Thomas and I are courting and it's difficult since I'm sick, the sun sickness of course, so it's best if he stays and then mention that Thomas missed you and for the rest of the winter, we'd like you two to stay with us," she offered.

Charles looked uncertain at the offer. "I...I'm not quite sure that's a good idea." In all honesty, he really didn't want to stay. This all was too much, and the idea of having to sit around while both his siblings became vampires was...not appealing.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 05:07:50 AM
Thomas judged from his brother’s expression that he thought the idea unappealing. Thomas sighed, “that may work for a little while but eventually we would have to tell them something else as they will notice Maggie and myself not aging,” Thomas pointed out, eying Peggy as he said it. While he had not come to a final decision, he knew it was a strong possibility.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 02, 2019, 06:12:48 AM
Peggy looked at him and a little wetness came to her eyes. She shook her head, “I know it won’t last forever, I just think it’ll help,” She told him and then swallowed, coming closer to him, “I’m sorry I’ve made such a mess of everything” she whispered, taking his hands, ignoring Charles for a moment.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 07:57:53 AM
Thomas nodded then looked down at their hands, "You have not made a mess Peggy," he said firmly, "please, do not blame yourself for Maggie. I...I would rather wear the blame for that. She's my sister," Thomas said. He looked up, meeting her eyes; he brought his hand up and gently brushed away a tear from her cheek, "I still want to stay here with you," he whispered, feeling he needed to give her that assurance after everything that had happened.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 02, 2019, 08:08:17 AM
A small smile reached her face as he brushed her tear away and nodded at him, “I certainly hope so. I’m going to do what I can go still give Maggie her dream and set her up in a little apartment in the city. So, if you didn’t stay, I still would be all alone,” she said and then bit her lip gently before sliding her hands away, “But...Thomas I won’t rush you turning. You could wait a couple years. Find an age you like best,” she teased and brushed her fingers over the side of his hair, “I’ve been known to like a little grey on a man” she then spotted Charles turned around and cleared her throat, “Come. Speak to Maggie” she said and opened the door, heading across the hall.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 08:15:45 AM
Thomas shook his head and laughed at her comment, "I like my hair the way it is," he responded. He felt relieved that he did not need to rush into turning; he was not sure he was ready to give up his humanity yet. To give up the sun. He followed her out of the room and down the hall, feeling anxious about speaking with his sister.

Maggie jumped up to press herself again the door, eyes lighting up. “Charles? Thomas?” She called through the door.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 02, 2019, 10:23:27 AM
Vampires. Honestly he hadn't expected to come across more of their kind this quickly, and certainly not so close to the manor. It was a small group, only 3, currently feeding on what appeared to be a prostitute and her... patron. When Nico approached, one of them whirled round and bared her fangs, but softened when she realized what he was. "Hungry?" She oftered in an unusually sweet voice.

"No," Nico responded. "But if you know of a place I can hide out during the day, I'd appreciate it."

The female vampire nodded, dropping the limp human she was holding. "Come with us. We've a small coven, hiding out just down the street."

(when you get to their hideaway I will gladly be one of vamps there :))

"We're here Maggie," Thomas said calmly, leaning against the door. His heart felt like it was breaking all over again, "You doing alright in there?" he asked.

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 02, 2019, 12:44:51 PM
“I’m doing okay,” she confirmed, voice shaking a little. She hated what she’d done to her brothers. “I’m sorry for earlier. I wish I could see your faces but it’s better this way.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 02, 2019, 12:49:37 PM
"There's nothing to be sorry for, Mags," Charles assured her through the door. He closed his eyes and pressed his forehead against the wood as he breathed in shakily.

Maggie choked down a sob, she didn’t deserve their forgiveness. “There is, Charlie, I’m so stupid. I can’t believe I’ve gone and ruined everything. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to fix that.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 02, 2019, 12:53:01 PM
<**I'm just amused by the fact that nobody has noticed he's gone yet lol Poor Nico, he thought he had a bigger impact than this :P**>

It was an underground tunnel, their hideout, part of an old sewer system that had been shut down years before. It was dark, cold, and damp, but only temporary as far as he was told. The coven, twenty-three of them in total, didn't stay in one place for very long. "Wasn't planning on staying here very long anyway," Nico told them. "I've got nothing here anymore."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 01:15:01 PM
they're just distracted right now :P)

One of the three vampires that he'd first encountered, a young man appearing no older than 18, spoke up "Where were you before?" he asked curiously.

"Maggie, you have not ruined everything okay?" Thomas said, trying to stay calm though all he wanted to do was rush inside that room to comfort his sister, "It's going to be okay, you're going to be okay"

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 02, 2019, 01:19:19 PM
"I didn't think there were many others around," one of the women spoke up. She eyed Nico warily, her lips pressed together in a tight line as she looked him over.

"He's right, Mags. We'll all get through this, right as rain. You'll see," Charles assured her. His gut was wrenching at the idea of her leaving her now.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 02, 2019, 01:29:15 PM
Maggie pressed her hand to her mouth until she was able to speak, tears running down her cheeks. “How will I ever get to see mama and papa again? They can’t know and they’d notice if I weren’t aging.” She was purposely avoiding the topic of Charles leaving, too afraid of him saying he wouldn’t stay.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 01:48:47 PM
"We will find a way for you to see them Maggie. They won't notice anything strange for a few more years at least," Thomas siad reasonably.

"I'm from further up north," Nico explained. "There's a group of us with a place in the mountains. Well, by 'us' I really mean them. I'm not welcome there anymore." He crossed his arms, blowing a stray piece of hair out of his face.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 02:03:35 PM

(Though imma disappear in a bit again but here you guys can work with this)

Clara had been wandering. She had wanted to give the brothers a moment and now that they were sit their sister and Peggy, she didn’t want to intrude. It was only then that she realized that there was one person she couldn’t smell in the house: Nico. She made her way back to where Peggy was and knocked softly on the door before entering. She walked over to Peggy and whispered quietly: “I’m not sure where Nico is, but he certainly is not in the house.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 02, 2019, 02:17:37 PM
"Hardly any humans at all. We survived on animal blood," Nico said bitterly. "And I... bit a human. Well okay, more than bit. I nearly drained her, and then was made to turn her. Only problem was, she was under protection of my former Mistress. So yeah, wee bit of trouble. I had to leave before I was chained up and left to the mercy of the sun."

Maggie sniffled a little. “A couple more years. Right.” She fiddled with the bottom of her dress. “Uh, are you guys planning to stay here with me?” She asked, trying to not let the hope get into her voice.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 02:38:16 PM
Thomas said nothing in response, not sure he could break the news. He looked to Charles then back at the door, "Maggie...I promise I am not going anywhere okay? I'll be right here with you," he said, "but Charles...he can't stay. We will see him still, of course, but he can't stay," Thomas said then grew quiet as he waited for her response, which he knew would not be positive.


Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 02:39:21 PM
The idea of surviving on animal blood repulsed him, "Why would anyone be foolish enough to stay there?" he questioned, "must have been a nice set up over there to put up with a human-lover," the young vampire pressed (his name will be Francis I think.

"I don't know if I've ever heard of that low of a standard. Animal blood, really? That's positively barbaic, if you ask me," the woman said, chuckling softly to herself.

"I'll stay for a few days, at least. Until you're all settled in," Charles quickly told her.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 02, 2019, 03:10:17 PM
"I mean I got shelter, and a steady supply of blood for pretty much nothing. Even if it was animal," Nico said, almost feeling bad about bad-mouthing his former home. Almost. "But it certainly was no place for a real vampire. The bloodbags are meant as food, nothing more."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 02, 2019, 03:15:19 PM
Maggie bit her lip hard at the news that Charles would not be staying. “Charles, you’re not happy there!” She tried to reason. Charles was her best friend, she couldn’t believe he was making this choice. “And you’re leaving me?”

Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 03:22:08 PM
“And you never had to move around constantly. I can see the appeal...” Francis mused. “Come, tell us more about this place and your mistress,” he insisted then led him down the sewer to a place where three humans were tied up, each with bite marks on their necks. “They are better fresh, as I’m sure you know,” Francis said. “These three thought they could come down here and rid the town of their vampire infestation,” he explained with a laugh.

"No! No, Maggie, I don't...I don't want to leave you, trust me. But it's better this way, Mags. I can't stay, I don't belong here like Tommy does or you do now," Charles explained. "I'm just...paving the way for us in the city. You'll come out there with me soon enough, I'm sure."

Anabella followed after, curious about the human-loving coven despite her blasé attitude. "It was charming, really, the naivety of them," she said with a small laugh as she looked over the three.

Thomas fixed his brother with a frown, “Charles...” he said under his breath; of course he wanted his brother to stay with them but Thomas just feared that something would happen. He wanted his brother to be safe, and that meant away from the mansion.

"I'm staying until she doesn't want me here, Tommy. Alright?" Charles looked up at his older brother, hoping he'd understand. Though he was ready to hightail out of there, and a few minutes ago he would have gone immediately, he couldn't just abandon Maggie.

Peggy watched  the boys and then  stepped  away after a bit to let them have a few  moments alone, only turning back for a second when she heard the door  rattle, but then  paying attention to Clara again. She groaned and shook her head, "He  probably did run off, afraid of his fate." She looked around for a moment and then shook her  head, "Well, what are we to do? This is  his choice and honestly,  so be it then. He's  got  a lot to answer  for  and I suppose I can  take care of Maggie since he's abandoned his sire." Peggy looked at her remaining servants, "Tell the  driver when he's back with  the Junipers' things  that he can take Nico's  room them instead of staying in the garage. I'm sorry Ralph, but  you'll have to do more of the bottling work now."

“Of course Maggie, we will be right here on the other side whenever you need us,” he assured her. He glanced over at Peggy and the others, overhearing bits of their conversation about nico.

Nico regarded the humans with indifference, although he had to admit, it was a little uncomfortable. Whenever he'd fed on a human, he always made sure to kill them in one go, never keeping them alive. But wasn't this what they were made for? Maybe he was a bigger bleedin' heart than he'd thought.

"Not much else to say," he told them. "We ran an underground bottling operation for the money to keep the place running, and all of the animals."

"Thank you Ralph," Peggy said and then turned back to  the siblings  talking through the door and smiled at them, glad to see that they were getting along well but a little conflicted at the idea of Charles staying. They didn't get along and she could tell that he resented her greatly. She looked at Charles and then look a quick smell of the air and nodded, "Seems like maybe an hour or two since he left, his scent isn't lingering anymore."

Maggie heard the conversation through the door and she stiffened. “Who’s gone?” She asked, though the answer was fairly obvious. “He’s left?” Her heard sank. Nico was among many other things her sire. Whatever desire she had felt to him before had been overrun by that fact. How could he just leave?

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 02, 2019, 04:41:14 PM
Peggy looked at the door and sighed, "I'm sorry Maggie. He may come back though, if not from guilt, then perhaps from some sense of responsibility. He  should not have left you, even if I  had a need  to punish him for his behavior." she told them all.

Charles grit his teeth and glanced at the door, then back to Peggy. "And what if he doesn't come back? He needs to punished for what he's done."

Anabella tilted her head. "How many of you were there?" She asked, noting the way he'd looked at the humans.

“He’s dangerous , we can’t just let him wander off! He could hurt more people!” Thomas said. There were towns full of humans nearby; what would happen if nico stumbled into one such community?

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 02, 2019, 04:52:46 PM
Peggy looked between the boys and threw her hands up, "What do you want me to do? Hunt him down like some sort of dog. The sun will be out soon. I can't just go after him, for all I  know, he won't find shelter and he'll burn!"

"Aside from me? Three," Nico replied with shrug. "Well I suppose four now, with the newborn. And her two stupid human brothers," he grumbled. "But enough of that, I'm never going to see any of them, or that place, again. It's all in the past."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 04:58:52 PM
Francis exchanged looks with Anabella, eyebrow raised; he was interested in this place. It sounded like good place to settle down. They wouldn’t have to move around constantly, “why keep the humans around in the first place if not to feed?” Francis questioned

Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 05:00:28 PM

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 02, 2019, 05:01:54 PM
"I'll find him, gladly," Charles growled. He wanted nothing more than for Nico to pay for everything hed done.

Anabella nodded and smiled. "No, of course you wouldn't want to go back to that lunacy."

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 02, 2019, 05:03:48 PM
<**um wow bit harsh :p**>

"The Mistress of the house refused to harm humans," Nico explained. "Even caught feelings for one, if you can believe that," he added with a shake of his head. "I never belonged there. Don't know why it took me so long to leave."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 02, 2019, 05:04:07 PM
“Charles, no, leave it,” Maggie begged. “He isn’t worth it.” And Charles wouldn’t stand a chance against Nico.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 02, 2019, 05:10:10 PM
"Charles, I don't think letting you go off alone to find a vampire with attitude problems is a very good idea," Peggy told him straight forward, "Or you'll be the second sibling drained and without me there, you probably won't  be turned."

Post by: kristina-la on February 02, 2019, 05:12:03 PM
(What? He practically killed his little sister! He’s upset :p)

Thomas looked to Charles with worried frown; peggy was right. “This is why I thought it best for you to just go home. You’re too reckless., it is going to get you killed”

Francis laughed hysterically, “for a human? that is repulsive!” He exclaimed. A useful bit of knowledge though. He looked to anabella again, “I say we pay them a little visit,” he said

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 02, 2019, 05:16:32 PM
"Yeah, it was a mess," Nico said, leaning against the wall, feeling rather at home amongst these people. He raised an eyebrow upon hearing the last statement. "I'm not going back there. Not even worth the trip up the mountains."

Post by: Mara-la on February 02, 2019, 08:51:42 PM
“Come nightfall, perhaps we could go out and look for him?” Clara suggested. Nico, on a good day, was grumpy and could be irritating to be around, but he was company no less. It was going to be lonely with only one other servant around. On top of that, he had to face a punishment of some sort. He couldn’t just create a newborn and then leave, it was rude.

Charles met his brother's worried expression with a glare. "I did fine without you for a year, Thomas. I sure as hell don't need you telling me what to do now."

"Oh, but we'd need your help finding it," Anabella said, looking to Nico.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 03, 2019, 02:28:03 AM

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 03, 2019, 02:29:34 AM
Maggie pressed her forehead against the door. He wouldn’t come back, that much she was confident about. “Is there anything I can do?”

Post by: kristina-la on February 03, 2019, 02:35:49 AM
“Yes, because it is safe at home!” Thomas fired back, not in the mood to take his brother’s stubbornness. Thomas looked at Peggy, his frown only deepening as he thought of them all going off and leaving him and Charles alone at the house; what if something happened?
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 03, 2019, 02:39:00 AM
"So you admit it's not safe here," Charles muttered. He knew this wasn't the time, but he was not thrilled about being left behind here.

"Not much to find. It's an old house full of human-loving vampires who would gladly walk outside at noon if it meant sparing the life of a bloodbag," Nico grumbled. "They're boring, and don't take too kindly to people like us. Real vampires."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 03, 2019, 05:44:10 AM
Anabella's smile widened slightly as he spoke, a plan spinning itself in her head. She looked to Francis, then back to Nico. "Well that's just perfect, then. I think I'd like to meet them."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 03, 2019, 05:50:30 AM
"Well maybe I'll take you to meet them come nightfall," Nico replied with a yawn. He'd been awake far too long, and was absolutely exhausted. "But, for now, I'm finding a place to sleep."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 03, 2019, 06:02:48 AM
"Oh, please do. Anywhere you're comfortable," she said and gestured around. Granted, that was limited if existent at all but that wasn't really her concern.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 03, 2019, 09:08:15 AM
"Awfully welcoming, you lot are," Nico said, finding a small area to lay back and stretch out. Despite the location, which definitely wasn't as cozy as the manor, he definitely felt like he could find a home among these people.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 03, 2019, 01:28:32 PM
Francis was grinning ear to ear, similar thoughts to Anabella running through his mind. If they had a nice house like that, they would not need to sleep underground. They could live in luxury! Francis went back to their tied up humans for a small snack, wasting no time in latching on to the female human's neck. When he was done he wiped his mouth off and found a place on the ground to sleep. (I suppose they could just turn into bats and sleep from the ceiling...)

"With Nico out there, no...I guess I do not feel as though it's safe," Thomas admitted
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 03, 2019, 01:44:37 PM
(Oh worm. I forget they can be bats lmao)
Anabella took up residence in a corner. She wasn't tired, really, but she decided to spend some time trying to hash out the plan. She supposed they could go at nightfall to scope the place out and then go from there.

"Surprising." He rolled his eyes.

When he awoke again, Nico was thoroughly confused. He was hanging from the ceiling in a cold, dark place; not in his cozy bed in his home. No, he had no home, he suddenly remembered. He flitted back to the ground, taking on his human form once again, quickly pulling on his clothes.

Ralph was up before sunset, prepping tea, and other things he needed to do. "Clara, could you please give me a hand with these trays?" He called.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 03, 2019, 04:57:58 PM
Thomas has spent most of they day sitting on the ground outside Maggie's room; he had tried to sleep but could not seem to shut his mind off. He worried about Peggy, Maggie and the others going out in search of Nico; he worried about he and Charles remaining at the mansion alone. By the time evening came Thomas had finally dozed off, slumped against the door with a book in his lap and drool down his chin.


***

Already awake, Francis had started his evening with a nice meal. The human he'd fed from lay limp on the ground, not breathing, "Well that is inconvenient," he complained, then eyed the newcomer, "I suppose those human's you mentioned would make a nice replacement," he said, licking his lips.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 03, 2019, 05:04:38 PM
"I'm sure they would. And they deserve it," Nico grumbled as he laced up his shoes. "But it's awfully far. Aren't there plenty of humans around here to feed on?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 03, 2019, 05:19:36 PM
"There are, but they have started to suspect us," Francis said, nodding to the three human's they had captured, "We will have to move elsewhere soon," he confessed. That nice cozy mansion would a perfect place; sure it was far from any  communities but they could easily smuggle a stock of humans out to the house to feed from.

(Yeah, Peggy said she'd be good at tracking Nico)

"Wouldn't you want to go back there anyway? With all of us behind you, you could have anything you wanted back at that house," Anabella said as she walked over to them.

Charles had managed to stay awake while he was outside Maggie's room, though Thomas' idea was seeming better and better the longer he kept his eyes open. But he didn't trust this house or its inhabitants enough still to fall asleep out in a hallway like that.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 04, 2019, 01:09:38 AM
[ok cool I misread that and got super confused for a second]

Maggie has tried to stay awake with her brothers, but she had fallen asleep against the door sometime inadvertently. She awoke to the nighttime, completely starving. She felt a little manic, so she forced herself to move as far from the door and the scent of her brothers’ blood as possible.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 04:17:29 AM
Nico gave them a quizzical look. "You want to drive them away and take over the place?" He had to admit, it was tempting. "No, I can't," he sighed. "As much as I can't stand their goodie two shoes mentality, and as much as they hate me, I was provided a place to stay for a while, so I am grateful to the Mistress for that, at least."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 04, 2019, 04:24:38 AM
Francis' expression darkened, "and just one mistake and they turned on you," he pointed out. He was quiet a moment then in a sudden movement, he slammed Nico against the wall with his hand clutched around the vampire's throat, "You are vastly outnumbered and weakened by years of drinking animal blood, so I suggest you drop any sense of loyalty to your mistress," he snarled, "Lead us to the property or I will personally finish your mistress' job"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 04:40:13 AM
Nico struggled against him, but it was no use. The other vampire was clearly much stronger. His eyes widened as he heard the threat. "F-fine, fine!" he managed to choke out. "I'll take you! I-I'll show you where it is."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 04, 2019, 04:50:09 AM
"Thank you, we do appreciate it," Anabella said with an easy smile, entirely unfazed by what had just happened. "We'll leave shortly."

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 04, 2019, 06:44:06 AM
(Oh Nico, Peggy was going to spare him too. She never intended to kill him at all)

Peggy awoke from her place on the chaise lounge in the library and sat up slowly, looking around and furrowing her brow. She’d left the siblings to their privacy, even if she coveted the time with Thomas, she’d had him for a whole year.
Peggy got up and walked up the stairs to her bedroom, unlocking the door and smiling as she saw Maggie by the door. She took a pair of pants and a warm sweater from the closet and went to the bathroom, changing before coming out and pulling out her cloak, “Come along Maggie. We’re going to find Nico”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 04, 2019, 06:50:04 AM
Maggie nodded resolutely. “What do we do if we find him?” She had nothing to get ready, so she stood stock still.

Francis loosened his grip, watching Nico a moment to make sure he wouldn't get any foolish idea, then let him go. "Excellent," he siad happily, looking to Anabella, "Let's gather everyone and set out"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 10:05:14 AM
Nico dropped to the ground, rubbing his throat. "You... you plan on killing everyone there... don't you?" he managed to ask, pulling himself back onto his feet.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 10:39:01 AM
<**sounds like a plan to me! :p**>

Nico's mind was racing. Peggy and the others absolutely didn't stand a chance, and as angry as he was he couldn't just allow them all to be slaughtered. He had to think of something, and fast.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

Nico scowled at Francis, brushing off the spot where he'd grabbed him. He led the group out of the tunnels to the open streets. It was still fairly early in the evening with plenty of humans still milling about. That's when he had an idea. He stopped moving suddenly, staring straight ahead. And then, in a swift movement, grabbed one of the other vampires, twisting her neck painfully around. It wouldn't kill her, but it would hopefully awaken enough rage within her and the others to make a scene.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 04, 2019, 12:40:28 PM
The vampire shrieked in pain and shock, her hands desperately trying to claw his away. A number of the humans walking about the streets turned their attention to the group. Francis' eyes flashed with anger; he stepped in, trying to pry Nico off the woman, "What are you doing," he snarled
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 12:46:12 PM
"Can't you tell? I'm drawing a crowd," Nico replied. He grinned like a maniac as he shoved Francis off of himself. "You said there were humans in the area that suspected there were vampires around. Pretty soon they'll know for sure." He then crouched low and lunged at him, with much more speed than a human could ever possibly muster.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 04, 2019, 12:50:24 PM
Anabella turned around and went to help the other woman, pulling her away to check on the injury. Shs quickly turned on Nico and growled low in her throat. "Don't touch him," she said, her red eyes flashing.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 04, 2019, 01:14:56 PM
Caught off guard by the sudden attack, Francis fell back with a shout of surprise and anger. He pushed Nico off him easily enough, but it did not matter; the human's were already watching in horror. "Get to the woods," he snapped at the rest of his coven
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 01:22:08 PM
"Oh, what's the matter? Scared of a few humans?" Nico taunted. The coven had scattered, some attempting to flee into the cover of the woods, while others attempted to attack Nico. He fended them off as best as he could, but quickly became outnumber. When one of them dug their claws into his side, ripping at his flesh, he howled in pain, stumbling back. He held his injured side, eyes flashing to the crowd of humans that was gathering. It seemed like now was a good a time as any to flee. He turned and ran, disappearing into the darkness of the surrounding forest.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 04, 2019, 01:24:32 PM
Anabella cursed under her breath as he took off. She looked at the crowd and then to Francis.
"We'll send a few to track him, everyone else should go as far into the trees and away from the humans as they can," she said. "I'm happy to track him," she added.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 04, 2019, 01:28:05 PM
There were humans shrieking and causing quite a commotion all around them; they would have to leave quickly, "Follow him. he'll probably lead you right to that fancy mansion of his," Francis said, "then come find us and we're storm the castle," Francis said with a devilish grin before heading for the forest with the others
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 04, 2019, 01:32:02 PM
She nodded and then took off in the direction Nico went. The fact that he was wounded made it far easier to track him, and she found the trail with little issue.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 01:37:25 PM
He wasn't healing- why wasn't he healing? Because he was exerting himself? Whatever, he had no time to think about that. He made his way through the forest, up the snowy mountain path, back in the direction of the mansion. He could have run, he realized, away from all of it, but Peggy deserved to be warned. Then and only then would he leave.

When he finally reached the manor he felt like he would collapse, having not slown down for even a brief second as he'd ran. He climbed up the steps, shifting his jacket so it covered his injury, then grabbed the knocker and pounded on the door.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 04, 2019, 02:05:57 PM
Francis and the others ran deep into the forest, the shouts of panicked humans in the distance following them. Eventually it their voices faded away, probably giving up on their chase. "I am going to rip his heart out when I find him again!" Francis growled when he came to a stop.

Thomas was jolted away from his snooze by the pounding on the door, "Whaaa?' he muttered in confusion.

Anabella caught up when Nico reached the house. She stayed out in the trees, close enough to see and listen. She knew her job right now was to just find this place and go back to get Francis, but she couldn't let him succeed in warning the others. She gritted her teeth, but decided itd be best to find Francis and return with more of her coven.

Peggy stopped and looked at the door and then put her hand up to Maggie, “Wait...” she took a deep breath and then opened the door and ran down the stairs, heading to the front door and throwing it open, gasping, “Nico,” she said and helped her friend into the house, looking over his wounds, “God, what did this to you? It’s not,..” she pulled his chin, “Why did you run?”

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 03:02:58 PM
Nico pulled away, pulling his jacket tighter around himself. "I know I'm not welcome here, but I came to warn you: there's a large coven on the way here. They plan on killing everyone here, and bleeding out the humans over the course of days," he gasped.

Thomas had gotten to his feet and wandered to the stop of the stairs when Peggy rushed to let Nico in. Thomas gripped the handrail tightly as Nico spoke of the trouble heading their way.

Francis and the others waited around in the woods for Anabella's return, each growing more and more agitated and hungry.

Thomas groaned then followed his brother down the stairs; he tried holding Charles back so he wouldn't do something stupid. "How would they know about this place?" Thomas questioned, "or how to get here for that matter?" Thomas continued, looking at Nico suspiciously.

Francis growled; he would make sure Nico suffered for crossing him. Francis looked to Anabella and the other vampires in their coven, "We out number them anyway, it shouldn't matter," Francis said, "Anabella, lead the way."

Peggy looked at him and shook her head, “I brought humans into a house when I was the one who told you humans and their blood are never welcome here.” She sighed, “I was going to protect you. You’ve been here for years, I wouldn’t have thrown you out. And Maggie didn’t want you to go.” Peggy stood and looked back at Thomas and Charles, “I have a driver. You have to go. To the city. I’ll meet you there. He knows where to take you,” she looked over at Nico, “We can run. Nico, I’m weak. I can’t fight them. Maggie is wild, she’s more likely to side with their coven”

Ralph nodded gravely. "I'm getting some matches and alcohol."

Charles glared at Thomas over his shoulder and tried to get away from him, but finally gave up and stayed up on the steps.
"Yes, leaving would be for the best," he said.

Anabella nodded and headed toward the house once more, leading the way back through the woods.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 03:38:35 PM
Nico frowned. "Certainly didn't sound like it. But that doesn't matter, I'm not staying," he said softly. "I came to warn you, and I did, and now I'm leaving," he added, turning away.

[whoops my bad. Chaos about to break loose]

Maggie stepped out of the bedroom experimentally, half expecting there to be a forcefueld keeping her in. When she was in the hallway, she looked down the stairs at the others. The intoxicating smell of blood pumping through her brothers veins had her slowly creeping towards their turned back, eyes wild and fangs bared.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 04, 2019, 03:46:58 PM
Thomas did not want to leave Peggy or Maggie behind but he knew they stood a better chance getting away if not burdened by him and Charles. "I do not wish to leave you but...I know it probably would be best," he siad reluctantly. He was completely unaware of his sister creeping up behind them

Francis and the others followed, the group moving quickly through the woods. Francis hoped they could reach the mansion in time
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 04, 2019, 03:48:56 PM
Peggy looked over at the stairs as Nico left her and got wide eyes at Maggie. She growled and grabbed a pitcher of goat's blood she'd had prepared to bring to the girl and threw it at the stairs, blood splatter over the three siblings, Peggy hoping it would confuse Maggie's senses. Peggy ran up the stairs and grabbed the brother's arms, "Hurry with  me," she begged and pulled them with  her, towards the garage. "NICO! GRAB MAGGIE!"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 04, 2019, 03:52:33 PM
Charles was spluttering in confusion and disgust as he was pulled along with Peggy, blood dripping off of him in the most horrible way. He couldn't help but wonder why he had to end up in this situation.

"It's just up ahead," Anabella said as they neared the edge of the forest that mansion sat within. She was simply itching for a fight now, and she truly didn't care who with. Today was turning into a good one, despite Nico's betrayal.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 04, 2019, 03:55:28 PM
Maggie cried out as the blood splattered, the scents mixing to create an overwhelming smell that just engulfed her entirely. She started to run after them, growling desperately.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 04:01:10 PM
Nico rushed over and grabbed Maggie's arms, ignoring the pain in his side. "Not today, sweetheart," he hissed, pulling her back.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 04, 2019, 04:03:14 PM
As the blood splattered across his face and body, Thomas was stunned and horrified. He glanced back at his sister in horror before letting Peggy pull him down the stairs and towards the garage.

---

As they drew closer to the mansion, Francis picked up scents of the vampires and humans inside; he smiled happily at the thought of ripping them apart and feasting on the human's blood. Maybe he'd even make the mistress watch as her lover died a slow and agonizing death. "They are still inside!" he said gleefully
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 04, 2019, 04:05:54 PM
Peggy got them to the garage and panting for air, she opened the door to the car and instructed the driver, "Start the car immediately. Take them to my apartment in the city. Don't come back here. It's not safe."  She then looked at the brothers, "I'll bring Maggie when it's safe. I promise you." Her eyes then drifted to Thomas, "I promise."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 04, 2019, 04:06:31 PM
Maggie snarled as she struggled against Nico’s grip, but they were getting away too fast. She turned her glare on him then. “I need to feed,” she growled. “And you are not going to stop me.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 04, 2019, 04:09:25 PM
Thomas did not want to leave her, especially with a horde of vampires stronger than her on the way. He reached out and took her hands, looking at her fearfully, "Please come back to me," he siad desperately


Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 04, 2019, 04:13:50 PM
Peggy looked at him and knew she couldn't make a promise like that. She turned her head suddenly, the scent hitting her and her whole body covering with goosebumps, "They're here," she murmured and then quickly leaned up, kissing Thomas hard before pushing him into the car and then running to the garage door, thrusting it open. "GO!" she told the driver, making him take off, the brothers in tow.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 04:14:56 PM
Nico held her as tightly as he could, though he faltered a little. Even a vampire had limits, and he was nearing his. "Do you really want to kill your brothers?" he snapped at her. "Calm yourself and think for a moment!"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 04, 2019, 04:18:13 PM
She could tell he was weakening, he was injured and this was her chance. His words may as well have been white noise to her, for all she cared. All she could smell were the different types of blood in the air and her brothers getting fainter. But with the disappearance of them was the emergence on something new. She couldn’t quite tell what it was and all of it was giving her a headache. “I need blood now!” She wrenched her arms free from him, searching frantically for anything she could drink that would help subdue her hunger.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 04, 2019, 04:19:17 PM
Anabella came to a stop when she saw the car leaving. She sighed a bit. "I was still holding out hope for dear Nico, but it seems we'll have to kill him still," she said as she looked toward the house. She paused and then smiled.
"It seems someone in there is quite hungry. We ought to help her out," she said as she made her way toward the house.

Charles was quite shaken and stared down at his blood-soaked clothes in horror as the driver went off. "Maggie...Maggie was going to kill us," he said quietly.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 04, 2019, 04:26:02 PM
As the car pulled out of the garage, Thomas' heart was pumping hard as he watched Peggy get farther away; what if it was the last time he every saw her? He pulled himself out of his thoughts, forcing himself to look away from Peggy, "She can't help herself Charles; the hunger must be so consuming, she can't think of anything other than satisfying it," Thomas siad.


--


Francis snarled as he heard the sound of an ignition starting and then a car rolling down the drive. He nodded to a few of the vampires in his group, "stop the car, don't let it get away," He said, then headed for the house
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 04, 2019, 04:30:41 PM
Peggy felt tears sting her eyes. She'd never felt so...hollow than having to watch Thomas drift far away. She shook her head though and headed back into the house and ran over to the scene of Maggie and Nico. She looked at Ralph and Clara and shook her head, "Just run, as fast as you can. We're outnumbered and we're going to be weak in comparison." she then looked at Maggie, "There's blood in the cellar. The door is open." Her eyes went to Nico, "They're going to kill me?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 04:32:42 PM

Without a word Maggie was bounding for the cellar. She heard snippets of what was outside, but it didn’t really register with her. As soon as she got near the blood she was slurping it down desperately.

Nico sighed heavily. "There are plenty of chains in the barn, aren't there? Bind her as well as you can, and take as much animal blood as you can carry. Avoid the nearby town, too. They're more than aware that there are vampires in their midst. Then find somewhere to wait out the sunlight."

"There's no time Nico," Peggy said and swallowed, looking at the door and then back at him, "And you know as well as I do that....I haven't left this house in 15 years. I don't even know what's out there."

"Do you want to stay here and die?" Nico snapped. "Doesn't your human expect you to return to him?" He grabbed her by the shoulders, eyes wild. "We're survivors, it's in our blood. You've made it through a lot worse." He glanced back at the door, hearing them approach. "It's either you run, or you find a place to hide."

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 04, 2019, 05:00:05 PM
"Nico, no matter what...you can't let them kill Maggie," Peggy  told him and then put her hands on his face, giving him one last hopeful glance before she ran to the study, grabbing her gun and some bullets, putting them in an inner pocket in the cloak and then grabbing a big bottle with garlic bulbs floating in garlic essence from the same safe she kept the gun. Even holding the bottle was tedious for her. She brought the bottle to Nico and just nodded to him before she ran for the bootlegger tunnel in the basement, knowing  it would take her 5 miles out to a cave far into the wood.

<**ooooh Maggie should totally be kidnapped :p**>

Nico watched her go, then quickly went to the bleeding cellar, closing the door and moving a heavy cabinet in front of it, both to keep the other vampires out and Maggie inside. Clutching the jar, which he could almost feel the garlic burning him through the glass, he made his way back to the main entrance to meet the coven.

Peggy ran as fast as she could, not daring to look back. She wasn't sure if she was heading further away from Thomas or closer to the same way. She was scared, anxious. She'd never left the house. The apartment was really just for her friends who assisted in her bootlegging runs. Even as a girl, she'd never left her home after becoming a vampire, the fear of the sun so immense after she got burned on her leg from attempting to go out.

Francis could sense their window of opportunity was closing as they finally reached the entrance to the house. He had sent a number of others to scope out other exits, just in case they tried to escape. Francis personally bang on the door, “oh nico! Open up, we’ve come to play!” He called out, but then kicked the door open with ease.

——

The car came to the end of the drive and turned onto the main road. Thomas felt ill as his mind went through all the scenarios that could be happening at the house. Would Peggy make it out of there? Would Maggie? The car suddenly swerved, followed by a loud thump and a frightened cry from the driver; Thomas looked out the front window, startled. There was something...or rather, someone on the windshield.

<**you know, Francis is beginning to remind me of Xander :p but that's probably totally a coincidence, right?*>

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 04, 2019, 05:42:40 PM
Maggie has soon drank her fill of blood, coming down from the manic high of her hunger. It wasn’t long before she realized she was locked in, had been tricked! She growled angrily and kicked the door before sitting herself on the floor.

I honestly did not intend for that...but at this point I just can’t help my self:p)

Francis ignored nico, instead looking around the entryway as he walked in, “this is quite the home, you weren’t exaggerating,” he noted, then turned his gaze to nico, “you are mistaken. All I need to do is kill you and then this place is ours,” Francis said.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 04, 2019, 05:51:16 PM
Peggy came to a fork in the tunnel and stared. She took a deep breath of each and then gave a furrowed brow at the one that smelled like...fuel. She took a breath  and knew that was where Thomas probably was andd followed out that way, running as fast as she could. She might catch up to the car.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 04, 2019, 06:01:37 PM
"And without you, that little coven of yours is splintered and disorganized," Nico jeered. He walked down the stairs calmly, unscrewing the lid of the jar, then hurled it at Francis.

Anabella had gone inside with Francis and she ran forward to knock Francis out of the way of what Nico had tossed at him.

Post by: Emma-la on February 05, 2019, 01:27:27 AM
Maggie was trying to jimmy the lock on the door when the pungent smell of garlic hit her nostrils and she recoiled, hitting a bowl full of blood as she stumbled backwards and it crashed to the ground. She could tell something awful was happening up there, and she almost wished she didn’t have her wits about her so she wouldn’t be so scared.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 02:42:52 AM
With anabella’s help, Francis managed to dodge most of garlic but some had still landed on his arm and the smell was so pungent it left him on the ground, grimacing in pain. “Get him!” He ordered the others.


Thomas tore his eyes off the creature and looked at his brother; Thomas appeared calm but he was terrified. Their driver was swerving all over the road, trying to shake it off to no avail. The vampire was banging the windshield in an attempt to smash it. “We kill it” Thomas said, jaw set in determination; he was not going to let anything harm Charles.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 05, 2019, 02:49:32 AM
Peggy reached the end of the tunnel and panted for air as she stood at the edge, the snow laiden ground in front of her. She could hear the car, smell the fuel, smell rubbery wheels, but something was wrong and it didn't sound good, but everything in her body told her if she left, she'd never come back. That she would die outside. Her hands shook, fear overcoming her and she took a step  back.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 05, 2019, 02:53:00 AM
Anabella had some get on her, as she expected, but the pain was bearable. "We need to find the mistress of the house," she said to Francis, trying to get a scent or hear something. Of course with the chaos all around them, it was a bit difficult.

Charles met Thomas' eyes, his own wide with fear, and nodded. "Yes, good, but with what?!" He asked, looking around once more.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on February 05, 2019, 03:33:54 AM
Ralph began to run, looking for Peggy and Clara. "Miss." He called, finally finding her. "Fly away." He insisted. I'll make sure the others get out, just fly."

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 05, 2019, 03:38:48 AM
Peggy looked at Ralph and looked out at the wood again and shook her head, "I can't just..." she took a deep breath and decided he was right. She had to do this. She had to go. She picked up the edges of her cloak and just ran as fast as she could, through the snow, towards the smell of the car. When she reached the road, she watched in horror as the vampire on the front of the car made them swerve. She took out her gun and pulled back the hammer. It wouldn't kill the vampire. But it would stall it. She aimed and then took the shot, hitting right through the skull.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 05, 2019, 03:42:33 AM
The smell of garlic had muddled his senses, which means it would do the same for theirs. He could no longer smell Peggy, or even Maggie, and she was in the same building. A couple of coven members rushed at him and he bounded up the stairs, unsure of what his next plan of attack would be, just knowing he had to get them far away from the others.

Nico jumped out of the way of the flask, some nearly splashing on him. "Where the hell did you get that?!" Of course there was no time to hear an answer, as another vampire descended upon him. Nico grabbed him, digging his fangs and claws into his throat, tearing him apart.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on February 05, 2019, 04:30:06 AM
"A priest." Ralph didn't have time to elaborate, as several vampires turned on him. He managed to kill two, moving closer to Nico. "Get Maggie and go. I'll distract them."

"It's not safe for her to leave," Nico snapped. "And I thought Peggy ordered you to get out? Shouldn't your goodie two shoes self be running off now?" Another vampire lunged at him, biting into his shoulder. Nico cried out in pain, then tossed her hard against a nearby wall. This was no good. There were too many. He took off again, leaping across the bannister and landing softly down on the main floor.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 05:08:27 AM
Thomas didn’t know what to do; they had nothing to defend themselves with. “I....” he began but was cut off by the sound of a gun shot then the vampire on their car rolled off the hood and hit the ground. Their driver was trying to keep control of the car but another vampire came out of nowhere, causing the car to swerve and crash into a tree on the side of the road.

Francis was disoriented by the garlic essence but was not about to let Nico get away unharmed. He got to his feet and lunged at him, “I told you what would happen if you crossed me” he snarled

Francis reached out, grabbing Nico's ankle and before he could crawl away. "Oh no, you're not going anywhere," he snarled, digging his nails into Nico's flesh and pulling the vampire towards him.

--

As their car hit the tree, Thomas was jerked sideways, hitting his head against the window. He was slightly dazed when Peggy ripped the door open but other than that he was fine. "They came out of nowhere," he said to Peggy, voice trembling.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 05, 2019, 05:40:51 AM
"Dammit," Charles groaned when his head also hit the window. His ears were now ringing, and there were stars in his eyes. He blinked a few times and then touched the side of his head where blood was starting to pool. "That's not good," he mumbled as he pulled his fingers away and looked at it.

Anabella thought she had heard something upstairs and went to go investigate, slipping past the fighting with ease. She smelled animal blood more clearly now that she was away from the fighting, and she smiled as she came across a locked door. "Oh, dear," she said as she tried the doorknob and then effectively just ripped it away and pushed the door open.
"Oh, are you Nico's fledgling?" She asked the girl behind it.

Peggy pulled Thomas close, but  as Charles' bled, her fangs emerged, everything inside her suddenly awakened. Her hands slowly fell from Thomas, eyes glued to Charles. It'd been several days since her last feed, too concerned with Thomas leaving and then Maggie's turn.

Maggie backed away from the door, recognizing the predatory look in the woman’s eyes. “Don’t come any closer,” she warned, refusing to let her terror show on her face. The last thing she needed was to have that exploited.

Charles registered Peggy looking at him and his eyes shot up to her, fearful despite the determination tightening his jaw. "Stay away," he said, pressing himself up against the car door.

"I'm not here to hurt you, mia bella, I want to help you," Anabella said kindly as she stepped into the room.

Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 06:01:48 AM
Francis could care less if a few of his own died; it meant less to feed. He laughed at Nico while dodging his attacks, "Like I care," he hissed, then quickly grabbed Nico by the throat and threw him down on the ground, pinning him there with all his strength. "I am going to rip off all your limbs and throw you outside for the sun to finish the job" he whispered.

Thomas felt so relieved to hold peggy; he had been so afraid of losing her. As her arms dropped and her attention set on Charles, that same look of hunger in her eyes as he'd witnessed in Maggies'. "peggy..." he said carefully, taking her hands.

"You're scared?" Charles scoffed as he tried furiously to stop the bleeding, despite being very disoriented at the moment.

"Not you, darling. I'd like you to come with us," Anabella said, offering her hand to Maggie.

Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 06:15:51 AM
Thomas nodded, "I know, I am scared too," he admitted. He gently placed his hands on her cheeks, "We are going to get through this," he assured her, trying to keep his voice even.

Maggie spat at her foot, holding her chin high defiantly. “I’m not going anywhere with you.” She would stay right here, where her brothers could find her. They had to be alive. They had to be.

Nico grunted in pain, struggling against Francis' grip. He was severely weakened, and Francis was already far stronger than he was. "I don't plan on dying today," he hissed. He spat in his face, attempting then to head butt him in a desperate attempt to free himself.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 05, 2019, 06:22:44 AM
"Nico has Maggie. He told me to go. I had to go. I'm sorry," she said and then pulled away and looked on as two more vampires started to come after them. She looked at her human companions, "They want to drain you while you're alive."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 05, 2019, 06:23:47 AM
Anabella's eyes flashed and she rushed forward, grabbing Maggie by the arm and twisting it around. "Listen to me. They want to keep you weak and docile, giving you only animal blood to live off of. I can make you strong and give you what you truly want," she hissed into her ear, digging her nails into her arm. "Human blood is the only way for one of us to truly live."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 05, 2019, 06:31:53 AM
Maggie gasped at the sharp pain in her arm, trying to twist out of her grip. “I can’t have human blood!” She insisted. “I don’t want it.” She was lying through her teeth, animal blood couldn’t fill her hunger the way she desperately wanted it to.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 06:38:04 AM
Francis grunted and loosened his grip on Nico when his head connected with Francis'.

The thought of being kept alive just so they could drain his blood was terrifying. "Well, it's not going to happen," Thomas said firmly. He was not letting anyone else he cared about get hurt.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 05, 2019, 06:49:32 AM
The two vampires approached and Peggy immediately fought with them, trying to keep both occupied before looking back at the brother's "RUN! Run to the town! They know of the vampires and can protect you! Run until the dawn!" she begged and then continued to fight.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 05, 2019, 06:57:31 AM
Nico managed to scramble away, crawling to his feet, panting hard. Peggy and the others must have gotten away by now. He turned and ran, heading to the bleeding cellar to check on Maggie.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 05, 2019, 07:06:04 AM
"Come on," Charles grabbed Thomas to pull him out of the car with him. The jerky motions made him feel incredibly nauseous as he tumbled out the door and stood, bracing himself against the tree for a moment.

"Don't lie to me, darling. And don't lie to yourself," Anabella said. "I can show you."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 07:20:23 AM
Francis sprung to his feet, furious that Nico was getting away; he looked around at the rest of his coven for assistance but they seemed to have picked up the scent of human blood out on the main road; most were already heading that way.

---

"I can't just leave you behind Peggy!" Thomas said stubbornly as he got out of the car with Charles. He looked at his brother and knew they would not be able to get to the town very quickly; his brother was not looking well.

He skidded to a halt when he found the door to the cellar broken open. He carefully descended down the stairs, finding Anabella holding Maggie. He bared his fangs, crouching low in a defensive stance. "Step away from her," he warned.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 05, 2019, 07:34:30 AM
Maggie turned her eyes to face the woman, vulnerable. “I shouldn’t...” she said uncertainly. “I don’t want to hurt anyone.” When Nico came crashing down her head swiveled to look at him in shock. He was protecting her?
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 05, 2019, 07:47:12 AM
Anabella turned toward Nico, still keeping her grip on Maggie. "And what could you possibly do to me in your state?" She laughed. "It's a shame you turned against us, Nico. And for what? A weak coven and a child?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 05, 2019, 07:56:09 AM
"As much as I don't belong here, I don't belong with you people either," Nico growled. "And neither does she. Now I'll tell you again. Let. Her. Go," he commanded, trying not to stumble as his injuries started to take hold.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 05, 2019, 08:10:57 AM

The vampires were so much stronger and were tearing through her to get to Charles. One of them knocked her to the ground and tore at her before running towards the boys. More were coming. Many more. Peggy was caught in her cloak and tried reloading her gun underneath while she got trampled over.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 05, 2019, 09:07:58 AM
"Right, like how to not respect other covens," Nico snapped. "And how to use your own followers as sacrifices. She goes with you and she dies. It's as clear as that."

Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 09:09:44 AM
Thomas saw the vampires advancing on him and Charles, Peggy unable to hold them off. he looked at his brother and knew running wasn't an option; they would be too slow. The only thing they could do was fight and hope for the best. Thomas' eyes wandered to the tree his brother leaned on; he grabbed a branch and snapped it off to use as a weapon. When the first vampire reached them, all Thomas cared about was protecting his brother; he plunged the end of the branch through the vampire's heart, hoping the old stories were not just fictional.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 05, 2019, 09:15:11 AM
Maggie looked between them, conflicted. “Nico...” she said. She had to stay strong. She couldn’t stay with these human eating vampires. She wouldn’t harm her brothers. “I’m not going with you,” she told the woman hotly.

“What’s the fun in that?” Said Francis, who had snuck into the cellar behind the butler. Francis threw butler against the wall with ease and advanced on Nico, “look at you, so weak and pathetic,” Francis said. He grabbed nico and threw him to the floor with enough strength to kill a human.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 05, 2019, 10:15:25 AM
"Oh," Anabella looked down at Maggie, almost sadly. "You don't get a choice, darling," she said with a slow smile. She looked up as Francis came in and then wrapped an arm around Maggie's neck to hold her.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 05, 2019, 10:15:58 AM
“Nico!” Maggie cried in alarm, the man in front of her terrifying. She started to struggle in the woman’s arms even more.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 05, 2019, 10:22:20 AM
Nico barely managed to grunt in pain as he felt multiple bones break, puncturing his organs. It wasn't enough to kill him, clearly, but it left him in agony as he lay still on the floor, unable to move, hardly able to think.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 05, 2019, 11:24:00 AM
Peggy gave up on her weapon and decided to take Ralph’s advice. She turned into a bat and flitted her way towards Thomas and Charles, flying around in the faces of the other vampires so Thomas could take them out. The vampire he’d pierced turned to dust and fell to the ground.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 12:29:51 PM
Francis looked down at Nico, "pathetic," he spat with a shake of his head. He looked to Anabella, "Take the girl upstairs, we'll lock these two inside the cellar for now," Francis said, "Until I decide what to do with them"


--


THomas' face lit up as the vampire turned to dust before him; he didn't feel so powerless any longer. With Peggy's helpful distraction, Thomas dusted two more of the creatures before one caught him off guard. He was thrown to the ground by the vampire, who was on him in seconds.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 05, 2019, 12:34:19 PM
“Don’t lay a finger on him, you monster!” Maggie spat at the male vampire, enraged by the situation. She wouldn’t let this happen, it wasn’t right! Nico was her sire, and a handsome one at that. She was struggling vehemently, even trying to throw her elbow into the woman’s rib cage and trying to kick at the man.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 05, 2019, 12:59:30 PM
<**Oh Maggie. Still on about his looks :p**>

Nico groaned, rolling over onto his stomach. There was blood in his eyes; he could hardly see. He needed to feed- then and only then could he heal properly. But there was nothing around; all the animals were bled dry. "You're... going to... regret this..." he managed to seethe through grit teeth.

The distraction only worked so long before one of the other vampires grabbed Peggy and held her tightly in her hands, squeezing the bat tightly. Peggy became herself again and fought back, the cold hardly affecting her bare skin before she becoming a bat again and flying back towards the boys.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 01:48:52 PM
Francis laughed, "regret? I'm afraid I am not familiar with that sensation," he told Nico with a shrug. He helped Anabella drag the girl out of the cellar then slammed the door shut, locking Nico and the butler inside.

THomas struggled on the ground with the vampire, who had managed to bite into Thomas'  neck. It only made him fight harder until finally he lodged the branch into the creature's heart .

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 05, 2019, 01:53:23 PM
Nico managed to muster up the last bit of his strength to cry out in rage and agony. How dare that bastard. He rolled over again, lying on his back, eyes closed, trying to will his bones and organs back into their proper states. "I'm going to kill him," he growled.

Post by: Emma-la on February 05, 2019, 01:59:41 PM

As she was dragged out of the cellar and through the halls, Maggie began to try and intimidate her captors. “You’ve failed already,” she told them bitingly. “My brothers and Miss Peggy will be long gone by now, you won’t be getting any human blood anytime soon.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 04:08:07 PM
sounds good. I guess I'll kick this off then :P)

Francis dragged her up the stairs, his grip on her arm unbreakable. "I am going to show you how to fully embrace your true nature," he said, "What a sire is supposed to do," he said. When they reached the top of the stairs, he stopped and looked at the girl curiously; there were many thoughts running through his mind in that moment, making a wicked smile spread across his face, "Your brothers you say?" he questioned
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 05, 2019, 04:15:22 PM
The look on his face made a shiver run down her spine. She didn’t like any of this, from the ‘embracing her nature’ to the smile at her brothers. “Y-yes. My brothers. The handsome young humans you managed to just miss, considering how useless you are.”

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 05, 2019, 04:17:52 PM
Before she could reach the boys, Peggy was snatched again and this time, the other vampire hit her little bat head hard, not enough to hurt her majorly but enough to knock her out. He stuffed her into her cloak pocket and then moved forward to capture the humans.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 04:30:38 PM
Francis snickered, "Oh I do not think they got very far," he said dismissively. He dragged the girl to the front door and then out onto the front steps, "Do you smell them dearie?" he whispered in her ear; the intoxicating smell of spilt human blood made his shudder.

---

Thomas's eyes grew wide as they captured her, "Peggy!" he cried out in a panic, trying to get to her but was grabbed by one of the creatures. His branch was ripped out his hand and thrown into the woods by his captor.

Post by: Emma-la on February 05, 2019, 04:52:51 PM

Thomas stopped struggling when he heard the unmistakable cry of his sister, "Maggie..." he uttered in horror.

Francis took in a deep breath of that wonderful smell, "what a beautiful smell, don't you think?" he said, "Now...they are alive, for now. They can stay that way if you coorperate," Francis told her.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 05, 2019, 05:05:44 PM
Maggie clenched her teeth, knowing no matter what it was he asked she would not like it. “What must I do to keep them out of harms way?” She was careful to phrase it how she didn’t. She didn’t want them kept for feeding like human blood bags. They had to be safe for this to be worth it.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 05, 2019, 05:08:11 PM
"Is that Mags?" Charles asked, looking around. He'd felt utterly useless, but with the state his head was in even too quick of a movement sent him on the verge of vomiting.

Anabella looked at Francis in mild confusion, but she supposed the brothers would make a good bargaining chip. One of them had the affections of the mistress of the house, so it would be useful in getting her to give the place up anyway.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 05:19:41 PM
Thomas looked back at Charles, feeling so powerless. He felt like no matter what he did to protect Maggie and Charles, he failed. “we will go with you,” Thomas told the vampires surrounding them. Maggie, Charles, Peggy. He’d failed all of them. One of the vampires grabbed Charles and then they were lead back to the mansion.

—-

“I simply want the mistress to give up her home to us. Now I had planned on killing her and all of you to take it, but I think we can come to an agreement, now that I have a bargaining chip,” he said, “if she agrees, then no harm will come to your brother’s,” Francis lied. He had no intention of letting the humans go, or Margaret  for that matter.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 05, 2019, 05:27:06 PM
The vampires led the boys and Peggy still tucked away to the house. Once at the house, the man who had Peggy gently took her out and found an old birdcage in the study, putting her down inside and the closing and locking the latch on it before bringing it before Francis, “Mistress of the house, Sir”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 05, 2019, 05:32:13 PM
Anabella peered at the bird cage, pouting. "Will she wake up soon?" She asked.

Charles tried to fight against their grip, but it was pretty useless. "I'm sorry, Tommy," he said to his brother. "I should've just believed you were happy."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 05, 2019, 05:43:21 PM
Francis beamed as he took in the sight of her in the cage, “oh how wonderful!” He enthused. “Take them all inside.” He ordered

—-

Seeing Peggy in the cage was too much; Thomas just sunk to his knees, too physically and emotionally exhausted to stand standing. He and Charles would probably be used as living bloodbags, while Peggy watched from a cage.

"Wake up little bat. The master wants to see you," the man holding Peggy's cage called and hit it hard until she fluttered. She flew up to the latch  and squeaked, attempting to open it, but failing. She eventually went and hung upside down from the bird  perch  and glared at her captors. If she transformed into herself, she'd be injured by trying to break out of the cage.

"Oh!" Anabella looked delighted when Peggy awoke and even giggled a bit when she flitted about. "This will be so fun. May I?" She asked, reaching out to hold the cage.

Charles looked around, trying to find any way he could think of for them to escape. Of course, nothing seemed to be worth trying unless he wanted to get killed.

Francis laughed at the new born, “you actually thought I would keep them from harm? Now what fun would that be?” He said, then took the cage, “ no, she is going to watch her lover die slowly,” he said, peering at the little bat inside. He then handed anabella the cage and nodded to the vampires restraining the humans,” bring them inside.

Thomas was roughly pulled to his feet and brought inside

Anabella grinned and carried the cage inside, shaking it every so often as she watched Peggy inside.

"No!" Charles shouted and started struggling to get away once more. However, of course it was no use and he was dragged inside the house alongside his brother.

Thomas was dragged inside and thrown to the floor in the library, where Francis had his and Charles’ hands bound.

Maggie stared up at Francis in horror. He was going to make her kill her own brothers? “No, please,” she begged. “I’ll do anything just don’t make me...” She already felt the urge, she wouldn’t last long, but she had to give in. She thanked god that she had eaten recently.

Slowly, excruciatingly slowly, Nico's strength began to return. There were rats skittering about the cellar and he managed to grab one, draining it completely. It wasn't much, but it would have to do. He sat up and, in a flurry of leathery wings, turned into a bat, his blood-soaked clothes left in a pile on the ground. He had no time to worry about coverings, however, darting out of the room through the tiny hidden entrance.

Maggie stared at Charles, eyes flitting immediately to the blood on his hairline and licking her lips unconsciously. “I don’t have this kind of willpower,” she said in a small voice, hands nervously twitching.

Thomas watched the vampire threaten Peggy, hatred burning in eyes. He knew it was foolish to get worked up though so he took a deep breath, trying to calm down. Thomas fixed his eyes on Maggie, "Mags, look at me. You are strong; I know you can do this," he assured her, "Don't let them win"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2019, 08:25:27 AM
Charles nodded along with what Thomas was saying. "You can, Mags. You're one of the strongest people I know, you do have the willpower."

Her lip quivered and she felt herself inching towards her brothers. “I don’t want to hurt you,” she said in a small voice and stared at their necks. She was going to lose control, she was positive. With nobody to hold her back, she couldn’t stop herself. “Know I love you.” The blood on charles’ forehead was too much and she lunged.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 08:40:49 AM
Peggy fluttered wildly in the cage, panicked, scared as she watched Maggie attack, afraid for Charles, but also afraid for Thomas.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 09:13:30 AM
Yeah, she's afraid cause she knows that Thomas will go and do something stupid :P)

Thomas' eyes grew wide as Maggie lunged. With his hands tied, it was difficult to manoeuver himself but he managed to throw himself into Charles, knocking him out of Maggie's path.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2019, 09:19:36 AM
Charles cried out when Maggie lunged and tried to dodge, but he was knocked out of the way by Thomas. "No!" He shouted, struggling to get back and help his brother.

Anabella couldn't help but laugh as she watched.

Maggie’s fangs sank into Thomas’ neck and the taste of human blood hit her tongue. It was like a drug, hitting her instantly.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 09:35:33 AM
Peggy squealed and squawked and squeaked  as loud as she  could, flapping her wings wildly against  the bars.

Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 09:44:35 AM
Francis stood back, watching the scene unfold with great amusement.

Thomas grimaced in pain as Maggie's teeth sunk into his neck. he struggled but it was of no use; she was far too strong. "Mags..." he muttered weakly
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2019, 09:51:35 AM
"This is the most fun we've had in decades," Anabella said to Francis, grinning as she watched.

"No! Maggie!" Charles sobbed, trying to get closer to stop Maggie but the bindings and the head injury prevented him from being able to.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 06, 2019, 09:53:10 AM
Maggie groaned, she couldn’t stop now that she had started. And she didn’t want to. It was the most divine thing she could ever imagine, and she held Thomas down as she drank from him.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 10:13:47 AM
Thomas’ struggled less and less the more blood Maggie drained from his body. He felt so weak and scared. His own sister was going to kill him, just as Peggy had killed her brother. “Please....” he managed to get out

Francis knew he’d promised to stop the girl from actually killing her brother but he was enjoying the scene far too much.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 06, 2019, 12:53:46 PM
There. Peggy was still in bat form, in the cage. He swooped down flying in Anabella's face to disorient her before returning to his human form (again, no time to worry about his nudity) and grabbed the cage from her, opening the little door to free his Mistress.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 12:59:08 PM
Peggy flew out of the cage with ease and immediately went to Thomas, becoming herself and throwing an elbow at Francis’ face before kneeling down and looking at her lover. She leaned down and kissed him, “I’m sorry. I’m sorry I couldn’t protect you. I’m sorry,” she murmured again and again. She began to cry, but knew what she had to do. She took a nearby piece of glass from a shattered vase and sliced at her neck before gasping out and pulling Thomas up, guiding his lips there, knowing the vein there would be best since she hadn’t fed recently.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 06, 2019, 01:03:06 PM
Maggie felt herself ripped from Thomas’ neck and was faced with the shocking image of both Peggy and Nico both naked. She was dazed from everything, the human blood sending her into a slight state of shock.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 06, 2019, 01:09:14 PM
Nico grabbed Maggie, hauling her further away from Peggy and the humans (well, the one human, it would seem). "C'mon, Sweetheart, that's enough blood for you for one night."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 01:15:08 PM
Francis stumbled back in shock; he'd thought Nico was trapped away in the cellar! There must have been an exit he did not know about! His eyes set on Peggy, his suspicions of the mistress' identify confirmed.

There was a moment Thomas thought he'd reached the end; Maggie had sucked almost every bit of life out of him. Then he felt lips brush against his own; his eyes fluttered open briefly, seeing Peggy by his side; was he just imagining her? His eyes had closed again when she brought his head up to her neck. As he tasted Peggy's blood, something at the back of his mind urged him to drink.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 06, 2019, 01:16:28 PM
She stared at his nude form in shock, mouth flapping like a fish. “I...I didn’t...” she didn’t know what to say. “I didn’t want to,” she finally settled on.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 01:19:24 PM
Peggy held Thomas close and let him drink. She held her fingers on the back of his neck, fingertips running into the ends of his hair, “You’ll be with me forever,” she murmured. “I’m never letting you go.” She then took a deep breath and furrowed her brow. Francis. She should have known.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 06, 2019, 01:21:21 PM
Nico lowered his head. "I know," he sighed. Now that that was settled, he had bigger problems to deal with. One: finding a cover; two: dealing with Francis. He grabbed one of the curtains from the large, ornate windows and tore a large piece off, draping it around his body.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 06, 2019, 01:28:36 PM
She stared at her brother, realizing what she’d done. “What have I done?” She gasped out. They were still in danger, she had to pull herself together.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 06, 2019, 01:36:53 PM
"You did what we're meant to do," Nico said softly. "But... it's not your fault. You didn't want to. You were forced," he reminded her.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2019, 01:39:05 PM
Anabella let out a cry of rage and rounded on Nico. "How dare you?!" She growled and went to lunge at him.

"No!" Charles watched in horror at what Peggy was doing. He struggled with the ropes, still tied up.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 06, 2019, 01:43:28 PM
Nico rolled out of the way of her attack, still holding tightly to the fabric around him. "Not my fault you people are incompetent," he hissed.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 01:44:43 PM
Peggy's blood burned as it went down, feeling like his humanity was literally being burned away. Yet, he continued to drink until he just couldn't any longer. Thomas pulled away and slumped against Peggy, tears welling up in his eyes.



Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 01:46:31 PM
Peggy held Thomas tightly and then turned her head, looking up at Francis, “You.” She growled.

Post by: Emma-la on February 06, 2019, 01:47:36 PM
Maggie didn’t want to risk anything, but she couldn’t just leave him there. Before she could move to help him though, Annabella attacked and on instinct she leapt into action, grabbing the woman by her hair roughly. “Don’t you dare,” she snarled.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 01:52:43 PM
Francis smirked, "Why Margaret, it has been far too long," Francis said, ignoring the spat between Anabella, Nico, and the new born. "I knew you were nearby but I had no idea you had secured such a nice home!"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 01:55:14 PM
Peggy stood slowly, still holding Thomas close, but mostly now to cover her in front of..well, a former almost lover. She held her head high, “I see you’ve grown your coven. Find yourself a proper queen did you?” She asked, nodding to Annabelle.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 06, 2019, 01:55:42 PM
Seeing Maggie attack her brought a smile to Nico's face, but it fell when he heard Francis. He whirled around, mouth agape. "You know each other?" he exclaimed.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 01:59:44 PM
Francis glanced over at Anabella; she had been a suitable partner over the years. He would not go so far as to say they shared anything resembling love but they certainly had enjoyed each other's company over the years. "She has proved far more useful than you ever would have," Francis mused, "at least she embraces her true nature," Francis spat.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 02:05:41 PM
“We were all human once, it is not our right to spill more blood than what we have already been accosted. You have always been a stubborn goat Francis! This is why I never loved you! You couldn’t see past your own hunger! You’re not an animal and humans are not just another meal,” Peggy hissed at him. She glared and then looked around the house, “I’ve never turned you in or earned the people you fed on. I moved on, you have no quarrel with me and my coven!”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2019, 02:06:13 PM
Anabella growled and wrenched herself away from Maggie, but then her attention turned to Francis. She hadn't known anything about Peggy before, which didn't really sit well with her now.

Maggie raised her eyebrows at the revelation of their past relationship. She shook her head and stalked towards Charles slowly, breathing through her mouth to help fill the scent of his blood and untied the ropes as gently as she could. She couldn’t let herself dwell on the guilt, not now.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 06, 2019, 02:28:49 PM
Charles rubbed at his wrists when the ropes came off and he turned to Maggie, his Expression worried. "Don't blame yourself, Mags," he said as he slowly stood up.

Francis took a step towards her, his face set with anger, "I can do what I please Margaret, and if that is consuming human blood then so be it. They are hardly worth a second thought, if you ask me," Francis said, "How you could fall for one of them is beyond my understanding," Francis continued, "but I suppose now you get to keep your little pet forever,"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 04:59:41 PM
"Because he never made me feel second rate. He never once  judged me for who I was and the life I was forced to live. And Thomas was never my pet  even as a human, though I know that's how you feel about your partners in life, which is exactly why I left. I wasn't gonna live my life under your heel," Peggy told him and spat at his feet before glancing at Annabelle, "Does he still insist that every idea he has is the greatest ever heard of and that you follow every beck and whim?" she asked. She then looked back at Francis, "What do you want with  my house?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 05:09:19 PM
Francis' anger flared at her words, "I am tired to moving around constantly. I was trying to find my coven a real place to settle in. I had no idea that this was your home," he said innocently.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 06, 2019, 05:12:19 PM
Nico sat silently (for once) watching the exchange. They had been lovers at one point? Well, now he really felt like a jerk for bringing Peggy's ex back to haunt her. "You couldn't have just found your own home to move into?" he finally spat at Francis.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 05:13:07 PM
Peggy looked at Francis and shook her head, "And this is how you do things still Francis? You just take what you want?" she looked away and pet Thomas' hair softly. She took a deep breath and then looked around, helping Thomas to sit down at the table and then pulling the  table cloth off and wrapping it around herself. She looked at Francis, "So what now?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 05:17:23 PM
Francis was unmoved by her words; he was just as stubborn as she accused. He gone through all the trouble of leading his coven to her home, promising them a place that they could call home at last. "Now, you and your coven leave this place behind," Francis said.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 05:30:01 PM
Peggy looked at Francis and then glanced at her small coven, Thomas, Maggie, Nico, Clara and Ralph were on the run, Charles would have to be kept safe. She looked up at him, "You have no respect. I have lived a quiet life here for years and you just think you come here and because you have more numbers, you can uproot everything I have worked for? Everything I have collected? For what? So you don't look like a fool in front of your people?" she dared to step closer to him, face to face, a breath apart, "You have cost me nothing so far, my lover was going to turn himself anyway, but if you continue to push this matter, I will be forced to move my hand against you Francis. I make me weaker than you, but I have always been smarter."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 05:45:56 PM
Oooh damn girl, you tell him!)

If it were anyone else daring to speak to him in such a way, Francis would have killed them. He simply could not bring himself to harm Peggy. He stared down at her, unmoving, “you should go,” he said coldly. He refused to be swayed by her words
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 05:49:05 PM
"This is my home and you will leave," Peggy told him stubbornly, "The sun is soon to rise, so I will spare you this one day to collect your thoughts and decide where you will be going, but when night falls, this will be my home once again and you will not remain," she turned and knelt down to check on Thomas, "You need to come with me. I have blood in my room that I had set aside for Maggie. I can't let you hurt Charles."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 05:57:22 PM
“You are outnumbered margaret,” Francis reminded her, “I will not be bested by you simply because you say so,” he snarled.

Thomas’ eyes shot open, he saw Peggy there beside him and he smiled but then the hunger consumed him; it was all he could think about. He looked around desperately, his eyes quickly settling on Charles. The blood on his forehead, the beat of his heart.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 06, 2019, 06:00:27 PM
"But you wouldn't dare lay a hand on me yourself either," Peggy challenged him as she held Thomas to stand, "So why should any of your coven?" She started to direct Thomas towards the stairs, "Come with me." she told him.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 06, 2019, 06:13:08 PM
Francis would not be so easily beaten, but she was right. He could not seem to harm Peggy, “I’d watch your back if I were you,” he snarled, his words lacking confidence.


Thomas just stared at his brother as Peggy pulled him away; if it wasn’t for her grip on him, Thomas probably would have attacked. All he knew in that moment was he needed to feed, “I’m so hungry”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 06, 2019, 10:42:03 PM
Maggie stepped back towards Nico, trusting that he would keep her safe and away from Charles should she lose control again. The guilt was all consuming and she wanted to kill Francis for doing this to her. Peggy May be merciful, but Maggie definitely wasn’t.

"What are you doing? She can't just get away!" Anabella exclaimed, touching Francis' arm.

“I know, I know,” Peggy said as she helped Thomas to her room and sat him down at her bed and the brought over the pitcher of blood, not even bothering to pour it in a glass. She then closed the door and let the table cloth drape off of her before going to the wardrobe and pulling out clothing, quickly changing into undergarments and a long dress.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 03:28:29 AM
Thomas grabbed the pitcher, barely registering as Peggy’s covering fell to the floor. All that mattered was satisfying his hunger. Thomas gulped down the blood desperately. When he finished, Thomas put the pitcher down and looked to Peggy, “more...I need more”

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 05:09:59 AM
Peggy pinned her hair up, the ends red with blood but she didn’t have time to deal with that. She went over to Thomas and knelt down, holding his face, “I know. I know you do but the animals are at the barn and the only one who can go out there is Charles...” she said and looked at the door, “This is now how I imagined turning you. I imagined it much more romantic.”

Francis ignored Anabella; he could deal with Peggy later. He turned his attention to Nico and the new born, "You can try, but it would only end in your deaths," Francis replied. "Your mistress may have her ideas of what will happen when the sun goes down this evening, but I have no intention of leaving without a fight," he said viciously.

Thomas tried to focus on her rather than the hunger. He did not know how he could wait another second for more. "I...I know, but at least it wasn't Charles," Thomas whispered shakily.

"Give it up, Francis. You're never getting what you want," Nico snapped, fingers digging into the fabric around his shoulders. He felt like they were at a standstill. He wanted so badly to tear Francis apart, but knew he was too weak to continue fighting as he had been before.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 07, 2019, 06:57:31 AM
Anabella growled in frustration and turned toward Nico and Maggie as well, crossing her arms over her chest.

Charles looked around, fear settling in when he realized he was still in the room with two sadistic vampires, his sister who had just almost killed his brother, and the vampire that had turned her. He slowly started to retreat to the door. It was daylight, so he could leave and no one would follow him.
The thought that Thomas wouldn't be coming with him either sunk in, and he had to pause as the reality of his situation weighed down.

Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 07:25:44 AM
"Oh, and are you going to stop us Nico? Look at you," Francis said, "You are a pathetic excuse for a vampire, and an even worse sire," he spat. His eyes quickly darted to the human, as the boy tried to sneak out the door, "Stop. We are not done with you," Francis said.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 07, 2019, 07:45:35 AM
Nico stepped in front of Maggie, baring his teeth. That part had hurt- Francis was right, he was a pathetic excuse for a vampire. He was weak and soft, nothing like he could potentially have been. "Let the blood bag go," he said, gaze darting to Charles then back to Francis.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 07, 2019, 07:54:33 AM

“Stay here,” Peggy told Thomas and then came back down the stairs, just a hair more confident now that she was clothed. She easily came up next to Charles and grabbed his arm, “Come with me. I need you or you may die”

Charles looked confused for a moment, then just sighed and went out to the barn to get the sheep. It was tedious, and smelly, but he managed to get it back to the house - both of them very disgruntled.

Peggy was wary of the sunrise but as the sheep came in and Charles closed the door behind me, she grinned, “Thank you!” She came over and took the sheep’s reign and touched Charles’ shoulder, “You...you should run and get help. Tell the whole town. I’d rather see them burn this place down than...see your siblings die”

"What will you do though?" Charles asked, his brow furrowing.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 08:46:08 AM
I will take your siblings and go to the city. It’s the opposite direction. I’ll tell Francis he can have the house and that’s when you come with the townsfolk. I have an apartment in the city. I should be able to get us there by flight,” she reasoned.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 07, 2019, 08:52:46 AM
Charles nodded a few times. "You'll all be able to stay there?" He asked. "What if people get suspicious?"

Francis took a step towards Nico and the girl, smiling cockily, "We shall see who is in charge when the sun goes down," he replied.

Thomas could smell his brother's blood from all the way downstairs; it was taking all his will power to refrain from breaking down the door to get at him.

"Why wait for the sun to go down? How bout a little rematch, me and you, tough guy?" Nico challenged, his ego clearly bruised from recent events.

Post by: Emma-la on February 07, 2019, 10:14:56 AM
Maggie was all for fighting this monster, but she knew they didn’t particularly stand a chance. “Nico need I remind you you’re kind of naked?” He was still standing in front of her. “Why not fight him once you get some real clothes on?”

<**funny, you'd think she'd want them to fight so he has to drop the cloth :p**>

Nico cast a venemous look at Maggie, then back at Francis. As much as he'd hated to admit it, she was right. Problem was, he didn't want to let the bastard out of his sight.

Post by: Emma-la on February 07, 2019, 10:33:49 AM

“Trust me Charles. I hid here long enough. We don’t kill people, that’s why we didn’t have to move. Francis is a fool,” she said though grit teeth and looked toward the foyer. She then looked at Charles, “Go. No one will chase you in the sun”

Charles hesitated, looking toward the door for a moment before he nodded to Peggy. "Just make sure you get out," he said as he moved to open the door once more.

“You mean make sure I get your siblings out,” Peggy said and rolled her eyes. She knew he held no care for her. She turned and pulled the sheep, attempting to sneak it to the library without anyone seeing and then to the staircase up to her room.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 07, 2019, 10:56:16 AM
Charles opened his mouth to disagree, but she was already leaving. He sighed and shook his head, turning and heading outside to go into the nearby town.

Peggy got up to her room and then drug the sheep to the bathroom before letting the leash off of it and looking at Thomas, “It’s all yours,” she told him.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 12:01:11 PM
Thomas had his teeth in the sheep within seconds, gulping down the creatures blood with a savageness he had not thought he was capable off. When there was nothing left in the sheep, Thomas pulled his teeth out and pushed the carcass aside and wiped his mouth with a trembling hand. He looked up at Peggy, face smeared with blood and tears welled up in his eyes. 
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 12:37:43 PM
Peggy grabbed a towel before she looked down at him and then fell to her knees beside him. She gently brought the towel to his face and wiped his face, his tears echoing in her eyes. "This is my fault," she whispered, "I should never have let you stay for a year. I shouldn't have fallen for you."

Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 01:11:34 PM
Part of him wished he'd never crashed the car in the first place or uncovered their secret, if only to spare his siblings of all that had happened in the last year. Thomas shook his head, "Peggy, please....don't blame yourself," he said, "I...I wanted this," he reminded her.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 01:17:18 PM
“I let Charles get away. He ran out in the daylight,” she told him and finished cleaning his face, “You’ll make a marvelous vampire,” she whispered with a smile and then swallowed hard, feeling awful with Francis in her home.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 01:27:48 PM
Thomas was relieved to hear that his brother was safe; he could only hope that Charles never returned to the mansion. Of course Thomas would miss him terribly but it was the price he was willing to pay if it meant Charles could live a normal life. He grinned, "Well, I do have a marvelous sire," he replied
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 07, 2019, 01:35:13 PM
Nico stared daggers at him. First his battered body, now his wounded pride. What else would he have to endure? He turned away then, biting the inside of his cheek so hard it bled. They wouldn't fight; not now, anyway.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 01:38:00 PM
“I’m not a Sire,” Peggy teased him and ran her fingers down his arms, “I’m your Dame, but I’d much prefer you call me by my name.” She then leaned forward, kissing him softly, “Charles will bring the townspeople here to burn down the mansion tonight. We’re going to flee, telling Francis he can have the home”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 01:58:28 PM
"I have a lot to learn it seems," Thomas said, then grew quiet as he thought about the mansion burning down, "I am sorry you have to lose this place Peggy," he said, "especially because of that monster"

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 02:02:45 PM
“I can’t think of another way to escape with all of us alive,” she said and looked down, brushing a few stray hairs behind her hair, “Francis and I have a complicated history. This just...makes things worse.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 02:11:11 PM
"What exactly is your history with him?" Thomas asked cautiously; he had been fairly out of it throughout her exchange with Francis.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 07, 2019, 02:33:11 PM
Maggie rolled her eyes at the whole situation. She couldn't attack Francis today, but that wouldn't stop her doing it later on. She just need a better plan. Scowling at him, she left the room.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 02:36:27 PM
Peggy sat down beside Thomas and slid her hand into his, leaning her head on his shoulder as they sat against the wall, "Francis and I...briefly courted. It was only a few months in the time after my parents died. I was wandering about, trying to find a purpose for my eternal youth. That's why I met him. I was a young vampire, naive as hell, but he was strong and charming. It would be my determination to go without killing humans that would drive us apart."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on February 07, 2019, 02:37:08 PM
(Okay ko’d Clara it is)

Clara had arrived back into the house just in time for the sun to start rising. She had felt bad running away, but it was what she was ordered to do when the other coven arrived. She hadn’t gone very far though; in her human days, she was clumsy as anything, and some of that had come over to her vampire self. Even though she was far more graceful now than she ever had imagined she would be, she was still clumsy by vampire standards. She had run into the woods but had somehow found herself tangled in some vine, and she has fallen, knocking herself unconscious. It was only by some miracle that she woke while it was still dark. Knowing the sun was soon coming, she had turned into a bat and raced back to the house, the only spot she knew there was cover from the sun. Upon arrival, she had gotten some fresh clothes on but had stayed put, sensing the other coven still prevalent in the house. So she waited, in the servant’s quarters by the wardrobe with their spare clothes, hoping that nothing had gone too wrong.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 02:50:52 PM
Thomas found the thought of her with Francis deeply disturbing, "it's hard to imagine you with such a...a monster," Thomas admitted, shuddered as he remembered the amusement on Francis' face as he egged Maggie on.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 02:54:06 PM
She squeezed Thomas' hand, "He wasn't always a monster, but...I had to leave because it was starting to come through," she confessed. She then looked over at Thomas and smiled, "I'm glad I didn't stay and join his coven. I have a few regrets now for holding you here....but I still love you."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 03:07:01 PM
Thomas smiled back, "I love you Peggy, I have very few regrets," he whispered, "when it comes to you and I," Thomas assured her. He leaned over and kissed her, "I was terrified earlier, in the car, that I would never see you again," he murmured against her lips. 
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 03:12:44 PM
Peggy put her hand to his cheek and held their lips close together before a few more moments before turning completely and kissing him just a bit more aggressively for the taste of blood on his lips. She then pulled away, blushing a bit, turning her face away, "Sorry," she whispered.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 03:22:12 PM
Thomas gently turned her head back to face him, "You no longer have to be so gentle with me Peggy," he reminded her. Thomas leaned in, pressing his lips to her once again; he no longer had to worry about his heart beating too quickly. they could enjoy being together without Peggy having to worry about losing control
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 03:27:04 PM
Peggy kissed him back, her hand meeting his shoulder as she did so and finding her fingers into his hair with her other hand. She kissed him long and deep before pulling her lips back and shaking her head, "We can't. Not now. Not while my house is under attack," she said and pulled back a little more, "We should rest. Tonight we will run."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 03:33:29 PM
Thomas nodded, understanding though he wished they did not have to worry about Francis, "Rest would be nice," he admitted. His eyes went over to the dead sheep on the ground, "How long will that tide me over?" he asked

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 03:38:10 PM
Till the night falls. We will have to feed before we head into the city. There should be a few animals in the barn left. That will have to do before we flee. I don't want you or Maggie attempting to kill someone once we're there with people," Peggy told him as she stood up and then started towards the bedroom, holding her hand to him.

"I will pull some debts that I'm owed to get us some money and then see what I can do from there," Peggy told him and then laid back on the bed, before smirking and pulling Thomas down into the bed with her. There were many a night when they'd been living just across the hall from one another that she'd thought about crawling into his bed to feel his human warmth. But even now, to just hold him by her side was quite enough.

Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 04:17:03 PM
As he lay down on the bed beside her, he knew if his heart was still beating it would be racing. He gently brushed his fingers through her hair, "I'm scared that I will hurt someone," Thomas admitted.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 07, 2019, 04:20:39 PM
Peggy looked up at him and smiled, completely overjoyed to be so close to him. She laid her head back and gently shook her head, "I'll never let that happen," she whisper, "I could have stopped Maggie if I wasn't locked in a damn cage." she then closed her eyes and nuzzled close to his chest, "Which we are never going to talk about again."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 04:42:30 PM
"I wish I could have done more to prevent that," Thomas said; seeing them lock her away in a cage like an animal had filled him with anger, "they are all monsters," he said as his eyes started to get heavy

Post by: Emma-la on February 07, 2019, 05:06:48 PM
Maggie had not felt safe falling asleep with the likes of Francis in the mansion, so she curled herself up in a corner of the kitchen floor, trying to use the discomfort to keep herself awake. She did fall asleep a couple of times, but only briefly. When night began to come once more, she felt much more drained and hungry than she had hoped for.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on February 07, 2019, 05:10:34 PM
Clara slept through the day, safe in the servants quarters. Hiding there had been smart. There were too many scents in the house right now and so she suspected she would remain undetected. Finally when night began to fall, she felt woke, and took a deep listen, trying to figure out where everyone was.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 07, 2019, 05:53:44 PM
When evening finally came, Thomas lay awake in the bed beside Peggy. The hunger that had been quenched earlier had returned; he was relieved that Charles was no longer there as a temptation as he did not think he could resist digging his new teeth into his brother's throat. "peggy…" he said, voice shaking; he hated the thoughts racing through his mind.

Francis looked out the window with a mix of glee and anxiousness; the sun had set. Either Peggy and her cover left willingly or he would have to move against her.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 07, 2019, 06:07:54 PM
"What's your plan?" Anabella asked, walking up behind Francis. She was still miffed at the turn of events earlier, but she wasn't going to voice that now.

Charles had tried to hurry as best he could. The fact that those in the town had caught onto what was happening was helpful, and quite a few were willing to follow him back to the manor.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 08, 2019, 02:15:43 AM
Peggy stirred and turned to the side, breathing in before her eyes fluttered open. She smiled softly, seeing Thomas there, but as she rose and sat up, she realized the concerned look on his face. "Go, take Nico, Maggie, Clara, and Diego, my driver, and go to the barn. Feed as much as you can, all of you. You will need the strength for the journey. I will deal with Francis." she told him and then slid out of the bed.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 08, 2019, 02:24:38 AM
Francis turned away from the window to face anabella, “I am going to make her leave. And if she refuses, I will kill everyone she cares about...starting with her lover and his sister,” Francis said.


Thomas sat up, eyeing her warily; he was fearful of what Francis would do, “will you be alright?” He asked as he got out of bed.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 08, 2019, 02:30:23 AM
"He won't hurt me. He never could," Peggy said confidently. She then came around the bed, leaning down to give Thomas a soft kiss, "I'll only be a moment, but if things don't go quite as planned, Diego knows where to go. He'll show you the way." She then slipped away and down the library stairs. She glided through the library and then found Francis and Annabelle in the living room again. She approached with ease and stood tall, proud, "We're taking our leave. The house is yours."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 08, 2019, 02:31:40 AM
Maggie heard Peggy come downstairs and was shocked to hear that she was just giving up. Her fists clenched, she stood from her spot in the kitchen. She had to do something. This disgusting man could not get away with this.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 08, 2019, 02:40:10 AM
Thomas’ mind was not put at ease by her words but he had to trust that she could handle it. He left the room and snuck down the stairs; he quickly found Maggie in the kitchen, “come, we must go to the barn, I’ll explain on the way,”  Thomas whispered
, hoping they were not noticed by Francis of any of his coven

Francis raised his brow, not having expected her to give it up so easily, “why Margaret, I must admit I did not anticipate you accepting defeat like this,” he said, “very well then, take your cover and go,” he said

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 08, 2019, 02:44:45 AM
"I'd much rather have you destroy everything I've worked hard for than kill the ones I love," Peggy stated simply. She reached in her pocket and took out the keys to the mansion and her room. She stepped forward and held them out for him, her eyes meeting Francis' "If that is what you wish to do."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 08, 2019, 03:15:02 AM
Maggie turned her angry eyes on Thomas, prepared to fight, but it all dropped out of her. She had done this to him. She was the reason he had a crazed look in his eyes. So she followed, hating that she felt joy at being near him again and not wanting to eat him.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 08, 2019, 04:04:59 AM
Anabella watched the exchange with a pinched expression. "At least you're smart," she sniffed, watching Peggy hand over the keys. She lifted her chin and looked away, arms still crossed indignantly over her chest.

Charles could only hope that the others would be out of the house in time as he watched the mob prepare themselves. It was all very surreal and horrorshow, what with their torches and stakes and all. Apparently the vampires had been a real problem if they'd gotten this prepared. He'd also been able to get his head wrapped up, though he most likely had a concussion from the hit he'd taken.
He kept trying to hold the mob off until it was well into nightfall, insisting they needed to do it when the vampires were well awake. It worked for a time, but finally the mob began to march to the woods on their own.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 08, 2019, 04:09:19 AM
Thomas did not have to time to pause and assure Maggie that he did not blame her. They could have that conversation later; his main priority was getting to the barn or the hunger in the pit of his stomach would surely drive him mad. "Do you know where Nico is?" he asked

Francis grabbed the keys from her, not suspecting any alterior motives. "It is," he affirmed, then drew closer to her, "If you ever tire of that boy, you'll know where to find me," he whispered before drawing away again.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 08, 2019, 04:10:41 AM
Maggie shook her head. “Most likely the servants quarters,” she suggested. “He definitely didn’t stay near me,” she said a bit sourly.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 08, 2019, 04:16:40 AM
Peggy gave him a face of disgust and turned her cheek to him, “I certainly did not grant him eternal to leave him for a monster like you,” she hissed back before turning to take her leave. She began towards the barn to meet the others. If Francis discovered her true plan or survived the townspeople, she was sure he’d be soon on her trail.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 08, 2019, 04:25:55 AM
Anabella glowered at Francis, the red of her eyes shining. She growled lowly in annoyance and then turned away, stalking out of the room in a huff.

Charles hurried after as the townspeople began to leave, making it to the front to lead them to the house. It would take them a bit to get there, as they were walking, but he was still worried.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on February 08, 2019, 04:33:52 AM
After listening carefully to the going ons in the house, Clara made her way out to the barn, where she figured she would meet Thomas and Maggie. It would be nice to meet them again as equals this time, rather than as vampire and humans.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 08, 2019, 04:38:50 AM
Thomas nodded, "Go to the barn Maggie, I will meet you there," he said before hurrying down to the servant's quarters to search for Nico and the others.




Francis cared very little about Anabella's outburst of annoyance, "Is that really necessary?" he grumbled, following after her, "We got what we wanted. Stop sulking" he said.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 08, 2019, 04:42:57 AM
Anabella shot him a glare over her shoulder as she walked away. "Oh please, if you'd gotten what you wanted she would be here instead," she snarled and continued up the stairs to go look at all the rooms.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 08, 2019, 04:45:25 AM
Nico was in his bed in the servants quarters, lazily tossing a small block of wood into the air and catching it with equal uncaring grace. He figured it was best if he avoided all the others. After all, once Francis was taken care of, he still planned on leaving.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 08, 2019, 04:50:24 AM
Maggie listened to her brother reluctantly, heading for the barn as quickly as she could. When she arrived there she saw Clara and gave her a small nod. She stared at the animals ravenously. Should she?

Thomas found Nico in the servant's quarters, "We're leaving," he informed him with a tone or urgency, "Please don't argue, I'm really hungry and not in the mood," he added, already turning to lead the way to the barn

Post by: Mara-la on February 08, 2019, 04:52:13 AM

Maggie felt like she was getting a bit more of a hold on her hunger, but nodded. It was not wise to risk it. She knelt down beside an animal and started to feed, draining the entire thing dry in minutes

Maggie sat back, wiping at her mouth. She didn’t like the feeling of blood dripping down her chin, so she had taken more care not to let it be so bad. “I’ll be okay,” she said. “It’s getting easier.”

Peggy came to the barn and saw the cow was still there and decided it was best to save that for Thomas. She looked at Maggie and sighed out, "Where are Nico and Thomas?" she asked.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 08, 2019, 05:24:41 AM
“Thomas went to find Nico. I don’t know where they are.” It wasn’t her fault that Thomas told her to go on ahead. “They’ll be here soon.”

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 08, 2019, 05:30:28 AM
Nico frowned. So that was it, then? They were giving up. Honestly he was surprised they'd actually informed him instead of leaving him behind. He sighed and got up, following the newborn vampire out of the room.

Post by: kristina-la on February 08, 2019, 05:42:53 AM
Thomas lead the way out to the barn, not bothering to explain why they were leaving as he did not want to be overheard and his hunger was too distracting to form comprehensible sentences. When they finally reached the barn, his eyes fixed on the cow; he was on the animal in seconds, teeth digging into the creature's flesh.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 08, 2019, 05:46:09 AM
Peggy watched Thomas and then went over to a sheep and drank from it, but not nearly as much as the others required. She was thin and she didn’t have nearly the thirst of a newborn. She could often go days without eating.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 08, 2019, 07:22:11 AM
Thomas continued to be surprised by the hunger; he drained the entire cow before feeling satisfied. When he was done, he looked down at the animal with a sadness in his eyes.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 08, 2019, 07:35:46 AM
Peggy waited until they'd all had their fill and then took a deep breath. Diego, silent as always, walked up to them and nodded at Peggy. She looked at her group, "Let's go."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 08, 2019, 07:40:57 AM
Charles paused as the house came into sight, but the townspeople descended on it. He stayed at the back and looked toward the barn, hoping with all hopes they'd already left because it wouldn't be long until the people checked every building.

"I hear them," Thomas whispered, growing fearful. What if they were spotted making their get away?



Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 08, 2019, 07:53:10 AM
"Hear who?" Nico finally asked, annoyed about being in the dark over the whole situation. He sniffed the air then, the stench of humans, a lot of them, unmistakable. Slowly, things started to fall into place. "Oh, now I get it," he said with a grin.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 08, 2019, 08:05:59 AM
Peggy started into the night, led by Diego and they began to run, inhumanly fast. They had to get away and now.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 08, 2019, 10:20:27 AM
Maggie followed at a sprint, not knowing what was happening but smelling the humans. “Where are we going?” She questioned as they ran.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 08, 2019, 01:00:33 PM
Thomas followed after Peggy in a hurry, eager to get as far away from the smell of human blood as he could. He was grateful that he'd just consumed that cow; had he not drank that poor animal dry, he would be running towards the humans rather than away. "We're heading for the city," he told his sister as he ran


Francis was lounging in the library, a smug smile stretched across his face. His moment of jubilee was ruined when he heard the sounds of shouting and smelled human blood. He sprung up from where he lay and glanced out the window, horrified to see a mob of people with torches and all sorts of weapons. Francis growled angrily and slammed his fists on the window sill; Peggy set him up!
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 08, 2019, 01:38:41 PM
Nico followed alongside the others easily, coming up to Peggy's side. "I'm still leaving, after tonight," he informed her in a low voice. "I think I'm well past my welcome as a member of your coven."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 08, 2019, 01:49:27 PM
Charles looked around a bit to see if he could catch any signs of the others leaving. He thought he saw movement behind the barn, and he felt instant relief at the thought that they were getting away.

"You still want her to come crawling back to you?" Anabella growled to him as she looked out the windows, and then started trying to find a way out.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on February 08, 2019, 02:34:16 PM
Ralph fell into step, near Peggy. "I cached a few things so we could recover them later."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on February 08, 2019, 02:39:36 PM
Clara ran alongside the others. She overheard Nico, and she caught up beside him. “You can’t just leave!” She said. Her place to speak be damned. “We are a unit together, even if you are irritating at times.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 08, 2019, 03:02:14 PM
Francis was furious, "no. When I find her...first, I am going to kill that boy of hers and make her watch. Then, I am going to end her too," he snarled, following Anabella's lead. The villagers were going to burn the place down; he would not be caught in the blaze as Peggy clearly hoped.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 08, 2019, 03:24:41 PM
"I still have a punishment to face," Nico reminded her. "And I'd really rather not." That, and he was more than aware that this entire mess was his fault.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 08, 2019, 03:30:49 PM
Maggie could hear what they were saying and was reluctant to speak up. She wasn’t really a part of the coven, but he was her sire. She’d rather he didn’t leave again.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on February 08, 2019, 03:42:00 PM
Clara glanced at Miss Peggy. “What punishment have you in mind for our friend?” She asked, her light singsong voice taking on a slight boldness.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 08, 2019, 05:29:36 PM
"I don't have time for punishments now," Peggy told them and then glared her eyes at Nico, "You are not going to leave me with your newborn, if anything, your punishment is that you must take care of Maggie. No matter where she goes and what she does with her new life, you will be there to guide her."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: ChaoticRhymer on February 08, 2019, 05:54:20 PM
"I don't think she's gonna object to that." Ralph commented with a slight smirk. "She seemed...mildly infatuated before he turned her."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 09, 2019, 03:59:21 AM
Nico sighed. At least it was better than death by sunlight. "Very well. I'll guide her." And teach her everything she needed to know about being a vampire.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on February 09, 2019, 04:40:44 AM
“And love her till death do you part?” Clara quipped. It was hardly the time for jokes but it was the first thing that came out.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

"Just what he needs." Ralph added snarkely.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 09, 2019, 04:54:12 AM
"I'm quite incapable of feeling love," Nico replied just as snarkily, rolling his eyes. Great, were jokes part of his punishment too?

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 09, 2019, 05:08:52 AM
"Peggy, please, just kill me," Nico said in a dramatic voice, though he wore a sh*t-eating grin. Suddenly the coven felt like home again. He wondered how long that would last.

“If we survive the next night or two, I just may. You just cost me everything,” Peggy told him, frustrated but still glad to have him around. Especially to help her hunt and keep the newborns at bay for the first few days. “Diego,” she said calmly, “How many bedrooms are in the apartment?” Diego held up only 2 fingers.

“Miss Peggy and Thomas can take one room, Charles the other if he intends to stay, and if not, Maggie then. The rest of us can sleep hanging,” Clara pointed out. “It will be tight, but manageable until we can figure out what’s next.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 09, 2019, 03:11:27 PM
"You may take the room with your friend if you'd like Ralph," Peggy told him and sighed, "I will not need so many servants for a small apartment.  Charles probably will not be joining us," she said and continued on without looking at his siblings.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 09, 2019, 03:43:39 PM
Nico had retreated back into silence at Peggy's revelation that she, too, blamed him for it all. Maybe he'd thought too soon about feeling welcome again. Of course now he had to stay- he had his sire to think of, unfortunately.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

Post by: Mara-la on February 09, 2019, 04:01:06 PM
“Small quarters with two newborns hardly seems like an ideal place for a human to stay,” Clara said to Maggie. She turned to Ralph. “No, no, I’m fine thank you.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on February 09, 2019, 04:10:40 PM
Maggie knew this was logical, as much as she hated it. "Fine." She looked to Nico and shook her head. "He really hates me, doesn't he," she muttered to Clara.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on February 09, 2019, 04:14:41 PM

Post by: Emma-la on February 09, 2019, 04:17:22 PM
She shook her head. It was still obvious that the last thing he wanted was to mentor her. “Well he won’t have much to worry about. I’ll leave once I’m safe to be on my own.”

"My brother has a home with you people. But me...I had my own life before all of this. I don't see how I could leave that behind." She kept glancing at Nico. She couldn't help it, she felt a connection that she couldn't shake ever since he turned her.

Maggie shrugged. “It doesn’t really matter how I feel. He’s handsome of course.” She wasn’t willing to admit how strongly she felt that she ought to be near him. She didn’t care for it, not when she had never initially looked at him as anything more than someone to have fun with.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

Thomas fell into step beside Peggy; he was quiet, thinking about his brother CHarles and his parents. Everything would be different; Thomas would have to watch his brother grow old and eventually die. Whatever relationship he could maintain with his mother and father would last only a few years before they would grow suspicious. Hearing Peggy talk about Charles not joining them forced such thoughts to the front of his mind.

---

The mansion went up in flames quickly; many of Francis' coven perished in the blaze. Others, who managed to escape were taken down by the angry humans waiting outside the burning home. Francis has escaped in bat form, fleeing out a window and towards the woods; he was not about to let a mob of humans be his end.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 09, 2019, 05:45:56 PM
Charles managed to break away from the mob unnoticed and began making his way back into town to go to the city . At least there he'd be able to live a life, but panic was settling in that he wouldn't be able to find his family.

Anabella managed to make it out by heading out a different and transformed to fly away.

An hour passed and finally they saw the lights of the city. Diego led them down a few alleys and then to a tall apartment building. Diego took them in, leading to the highest floor and then opened the door. “Thank you,” she said to Diego and he simply nodded before allowing her in. Peggy went into and looked around with a small frown. It was small. A few beautiful furniture pieces, a bookshelf of books Peggy had never read as she’d never been here. She went over and picked one up, dusting off the cover before looking at her group, “My home is yours. It is no longer large enough to warrant servitude. I...find you equals now.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on February 10, 2019, 05:36:21 AM
Clara eyed Peggy, and was both excited and saddened by her words. She liked working for Peggy, she found that it gave her a sense of purpose. But to be free and serve nobody but herself again... she hasn’t done that for a long time. Not really, not since she was human, and even then her life belonged to her husband and her father before that.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on February 10, 2019, 07:30:35 AM
This was going to be a strange dynamic. He'd only ever seen Peggy as his superior, and he was sure the others felt the same. It was going to take a lot of getting used to.

"Alright, Girlie," he said to Maggie suddenly. "Tomorrow night you're coming with me. If I'm to be a proper sire, there are things you'll need to learn."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 10, 2019, 10:26:37 AM
Francis found a tree to perch and watched the blaze in the distance with a scowl. He should have known Peggy would not give up so easily without something like that in mind; she had outwitted him and probably cost him the respect and trust of his coven.

Thomas rubbed the back of his head as he looked around at the small apartment, with an expression of uncertainly.

Peggy closed her eyes, content to lay her face into his hands. They slowly fluttered open to look at  him and smiled, "I love you too Thomas." She looked around the room for a moment and sighed, "I suppose a smaller space isn't so frightful when you have someone you want to shared it with."

[do you think Charles would try and find them?]
(Yeah. I guess I can start off there.)

Charles caught a cab into the city, something he was very thankful for. The driver made no mention of his head wrapped up or the state of his clothes, another reason to be thankful. He just told him to take him into a central part of the city and he'd begin his search for his siblings, though he wasn't terribly confident he'd find them. He had nothing really to go off of, and he couldn't remember if Peggy had ever even told them her last name. Or at least him. Thomas probably knew it, which made his shoulders tense slightly. He shook his head and headed down the street.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 11, 2019, 02:45:32 AM
Thomas shuddered at the mere thought of him having an accident. If he hurt anyone, he knew it would be near impossible for him to live with the guilt. “A month? Then what? We just move around constantly?” He said, feeling frustrated. He missed the mansion; it was peaceful and comfortable.

Peggy tilted her head back and smirked a little, her fingers finding the back of his head, kneading into the ends of his hair, "Thomas..." she murmured and her other hand slid along his back.

Thomas had longed for such a moment with Peggy for quite a long time. Finally, they could enjoy such beautiful intimacy with no fear; he was no longer too vulnerable and delicate. His lips found hers once again and his fingers pushed through her hair

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 11, 2019, 04:54:42 PM
Peggy was content to simply curl in closer, playing with his shirt and and kissing him in a growing intensity. She laid back against her pillow and pulled him down over her by his  collar, carefully undoing the  buttons on his shirt. 
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 11, 2019, 05:03:46 PM
(is she wearing a dress? if so, what kind? :P)

As she unbuttoned his shirt, Thomas propped himself up over her and let his lips brush against her cheek, her neck and then her collor bone. When the last button was undone he quickly slipped out of the sleeves and tossed the shirt aside

oh shoot double post. I forgot!)

Francis reached the city, using his bat form to get there faster. After killing a human couple and stealing their clothes, he walked down the street with Anabella aimlessly; he did not know where Peggy and her pathetic coven had gone but he knew she would flee to the city. The rest of their coven had abandoned them; all he had left was Anabella, who continued to give him the cold shoulder after his exchange with Peggy.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 11, 2019, 05:10:50 PM
(I think I said she was in a long dress, everything from the knees down would be tassels though, I think she'd have buttons up the back? Zippers don't come until 1930s)

Peggy laid back so she could get a decent look, her fingers tracing over his chest, brows knitting together as she did a brief, curious inspection.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 11, 2019, 05:18:30 PM
I will forever love listening to Scott talk about his writing process for Leviathan and researching the silly little things like...are there zippers yet?? FYI...zippers are a Canadian invention. you're welcome ;))

Thomas grinned down at her, raising an eyebrow, "Like what you see? I hope I am not a disappointment," he said
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2019, 01:28:00 AM
Anabella was fussing with her dress a bit, not liking how it was fitting. "So, what's your plan now?" She asked, looking toward Francis.

Charles stood on one of the street corners, hands in his pockets with his back to the road as he stared up at the apartment building he was going to start with.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 12, 2019, 02:19:53 AM
Peggy looked up at his face and chuckled, feeling like she'd been caught. She nodded and lightly ran her nails down  his stomach, "I am highly impressed." she whispered and then smirked, "I always was, even when you were human."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 12, 2019, 02:31:58 AM
Francis stopped before crossing a street, not sure how to respond. He really had no plan. But then, his mouth twisted into a wicked smile as he spotted the brother of Peggy’s lover standing on the other side of the street. “Well, look who it is” he said


Thomas shuddered happily then leaned down to kiss her again, “now we have nothing holding us back,” he whispered
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 12, 2019, 02:37:09 AM
Peggy smiled tenderly into his kiss and then sat up slightly, "I suppose not," she whispered back and then carefully turned around, pulling her hair over her shoulder.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2019, 02:45:59 AM
Anabella looked over and raised an eyebrow. "Convenient," she commented with an equally wicked smile. She looked both ways before crossing the street with the small crowd, and grabbed Francis' jacket sleeve to stick close.

Charles took a deep breath and headed for the door, but was stopped by the doorman. He told him who he was looking for, but the man said no one by that name lived there.
"They may have just moved in?" Charles tried, but the man simply sent him away.
"Onto the next, then," he muttered to himself as he walked away.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 12, 2019, 02:52:20 AM
Thomas’ breath caught in his throat; he ran his hands along her shoulders the down to the buttons of her dress, hesitating at the first button.


Francis crossed the street with anabella, eager to grab the boy. As he turned from the apartment building door, Francis waited behind him, grinning at the human. “Well, what a nice surprise” he said
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 12, 2019, 02:56:26 AM
Peggy felt his hands and sighed out happily, but then when he paused, she let her shoulders down and gently turned and looked at  him over her shoulder. She tilted  her head  slightly,  "Thomas? Is everything alright?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 12, 2019, 03:00:13 AM
Thomas smiled nervously, “everything is perfect, you’re perfect,” he assured her, his hands playing with the button, “may I?” He asked, unsure if it was something she desired.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2019, 03:01:51 AM
Charles stopped short, his eyes widening when he saw the two vampires. "You're supposed to be dead," was the first thing out of his mouth. He glanced around, unsure if anyone had heard, but this was New York City and people really didn't care. He backed up a few steps, making out to run, but Anabella was behind him in an instant and grabbed onto his shoulders to hold him.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 12, 2019, 03:10:33 AM
Peggy looked at him and then nodded before turning her head back, carefully running her fingers through her hair, "Please," she said gently. It had been a long time since she was attacked as a girl and Thomas was...soft and slow. He wasn't forcing her or being rough. She appreciated his gentleness.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 12, 2019, 04:30:16 AM
Thomas carefully undid the buttons, leaving a trail of kisses down her spine as he went.

Francis stepped closer to the boy, enjoying the sound of his heart racing. He loved when they panicked, "I am over 100 years old, do you really think a pathetic fire would bring me down, foolish boy?" Francis said.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 12, 2019, 04:53:49 AM
Peggy deeply took in a breath before wrapping her arms around herself and closing her eyes. She then let her arms slide down, holding her sleeves as she did, sliding her dress off her shoulders and down her arms. She breathed out softly as she pulled the sleeves off her arms.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2019, 04:55:53 AM
Charles stiffened and leaned away when Francis stepped closer, but he couldn't do much with Anabella behind him. "You're going to try crossing Peggy again? That turned out pretty bad for you the last time, even if you did survive," he spat out at him.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 12, 2019, 05:08:24 AM
Francis laughed, “oh this time will be very different. Whatever hesitations I had will not get in the way of getting what I want,” he told the boy, “and what I want is for her to suffer,” Francis whispered in his ear.


Thomas sat back a moment, his eyes wandering as she slipped out of the sleeves of her dress. He leaned in and kissed her whole pulling the dress the rest of the way down.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 12, 2019, 05:31:29 AM
Peggy raised her shoulders and kissed him back just as whole, layinger her fingers on his face as she turned back and slid her dress off the bed. She then sat up carefully and turned around to face Thomas. She looked down, smiling to herself a bit, “Thomas...I spent a year with you, only ever a few feet away. I wish I had told you how I felt so long ago”

this is so scandalous :P)

Thomas's breath caught in his throat; never had he been so intimate with a woman and he could not imagine it happening with anyone else. He smiled at her words, feeling quite the same, "As do I," he said and breathed out, "I've loved you for months now, I wish I had not been so afraid to act on my feelings," he whispered.

Francis grinned, "true, but unfortunately for you, she cares for that brother of yours and I think she would do just about anything for him,"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2019, 06:15:19 AM
"And what if I said he doesn't care for me much either? He's one of you now, so things have changed a bit," Charles said, still trying to wriggle his arms away.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 12, 2019, 06:31:26 AM
“I would often consider coming into your room and curling into bed with you, just sharing your body heat,” she whispered and kissing his jaw, down his chin, along his throat. She paused and gently bared her fangs, grazing them along his throat, “But I was afraid to hurt you,” she whispered. She nuzzled the crook of his neck, “I’m not so afraid to hurt you now.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 12, 2019, 07:41:17 AM
Francis ran his finger along the boys neck, his nail nicking the skin enough to draw blood. “Somehow, I find that hard to believe. He did sacrifice himself for you; that is a strong bond you have. I reckon, he will do just about anything for you”


“You don’t need to fear hurting me at all now,” he whispered. He lay her back against the pillows and kissed her more intensely.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2019, 08:12:41 AM
Charles winced at the prick on his neck, but then glared at Francis. "You're just setting yourself up for disappointment. I doubt you even know where Peggy is."

Post by: kristina-la on February 12, 2019, 08:40:21 AM
Francis brought his finger to his mouth and licked the blood off. Oh how he wished to suck the human dry, but he needed the boy. "I do not," he admitted, "but I imagine I can find her, with your help of course," Francis said, "clearly you know something of their whereabouts."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2019, 08:54:45 AM

Peggy kissed him harder as well and put her hands down, using a few quick movements to start unbuttoning his pants, “Thomas,” she murmured against his lips softly.

(you know, the others are just on the other side of the door; they can probably hear everything going on :P)

"I love you," Thomas whispered as she unbuttoned his pants. Thomas hastily kicked them off the rest of the way

"Well, then you had better find you're way or I will spill more of your blood than that little drop," he hissed

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 12, 2019, 10:02:24 AM
(They're gently characters, whispering and they're vampires. I don't imagine it'd be crazy loud XD, but yeah....SKIP!)

Peggy curled into Thomas' chest, burying her face in his  skin while her fingers still grasped his shoulders, eyes fluttering open and drifting up to look at Thomas, chest rising and falling with heavy breaths, "You certainly are very strong now," she teased him and chuckled quietly.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

"Well then, we better get started then," Francis said, knowing he and Anabella could at least smell the group out if need be.


Thomas' arm rested comfortably around her, enjoying how perfectly she fit in his arms. He smiled widely at her, his breaths also heavy, "Wow," he breathed out, "that was...." he had no words.

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 12, 2019, 12:44:46 PM
Peggy put her hand flat on his chest, feeling his chest as he breathed. She chuckled and leaned up, pressing their lips together for a long kiss and then laid back down against him. “Thomas, I will never tire of you. I hope you can maintain that kind of vigor for a hundred years,” she teased him.

“I’ve lived almost 70 and god, that was...probably the best thing I’ve ever done,” She teased and laughed. She then sat up and kissed his deeply and then took her book off the nightstand. She came back, leaning against him as she started to read again, sighing out and then running her fingers over his thigh as she read.

Post by: kristina-la on February 12, 2019, 01:38:12 PM

“You’ve already had your way with me Thomas, you don’t have to keep buttering me up,” Peggy joked with him and pulled her arm up behind his head and gently played with his locks while she read just a bit more until she too became drowsy and soon enough fell asleep against his chest

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2019, 03:58:47 PM

Post by: kristina-la on February 12, 2019, 04:24:04 PM
When she fell asleep, Thomas kissed the top of her head, “good night peggy,” he whispered before falling asleep himself.

Francis walked the streets of New York with anabella and the human, checking every apartment building along the way until finally he caught their scent. “Stop,” He said suddenly, looking up at the building, “this one”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 12, 2019, 04:56:33 PM
Anabella paused and looked up at the building. She nodded, a slow grin spreading across her face.

Charles looked up at the building, frowning. "You sure it's not some other building? This doesn't seem right."

“Sure,” Clara said in response to Ralph. She had been trying to be polite; the apartment wasn’t large and she could tell what Miss Peggy and her love were up to. She was settling into the couch when she heard something very faint outside, far from where she was. Was it... Charles? Had he come looking for them?

Charles glanced at Francis, more fearful now than ever before. Thomas had already sacrificed himself once, and like hell Charles would ever let it come to that again. But he wasn't so sure he could go up against a sadistic, vengeance-bent vampire like Francis. Actually, he knew he couldn't.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 13, 2019, 12:27:03 PM

Peggy’s eyes snapped open as she heard her name called and she got out of the bed, slowly moving as to not wake Thomas and slipped a nightgown on before also putting on a robe. She slipped out of the bedroom and looked at Clara and Ralph confused, “What is I—“ she paused. Francis. She could smell him as well.

Post by: kristina-la on February 13, 2019, 04:52:29 PM
Francis did not care if they smelled him and anabella. Let them know what was coming; it would not stop his wrath from descending on them, “your way with words will not save you boy,” he said and pushed him ahead into the lift.

“They won’t go far if they know we have you,” Francis said as the lift started to bring them up. By his estimations, Peggy was on the second floor; when the lift came to a stop he dragged the boy out into the hall

“Become bats. Take off. Fly,” Peggy said and opened a window. She then opened the bedroom door and looked at Thomas, furrowing her brow. She ran over and shook him a bit, “We have to go. Come on Thomas.” She said. He was so close, Francis but a new scent hit her as he neared. Human blood. Juniper blood. She turned around as if he’d be standing right before her, “No. Charles.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 14, 2019, 02:53:21 AM
Francis ignored the boy’s desperate attempts to talk his way out of the situation, “why don’t we draw those siblings of yours out?” Francis said, grinning cruelly. He dug his nails into the boy’s arm, making a deep cut all the way down to his wrist.


Thomas stirred as she shook him and sat up slowly, confused and drowsy. Then the smell of blood hit him and Thomas felt all his senses lock on the human put in the hall; he wasn’t even aware that it was Charles.

That’s when Clara caught it: the smell of blood. They had to get Charles, but they also couldn’t risk Maggie and Thomas getting out, being as they were newborns. She has been prepared to fly off, but now was thinking it unwise. Peggy couldn’t handle Thomas, Maggie, Francis, and Charles on her own. “What do we do?” She asked quietly. “I’m not leaving you here on your own.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 14, 2019, 05:08:50 AM
Francis laughed as the smell of blood filled the hall; it was strong enough to break a newborn’s restraint.

Thomas strained against her hold on him, body tense and eyes wild. “Charles...” he breathed out, trying to get a grip on himself but the smell was so intoxicating.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 14, 2019, 05:19:56 AM
Charles was trying to pull away from Francis again, and was looking around the hall. He hoped Peggy had enough sense to just get them all out of there.

"They're taking so long, Francis," Anabella said, staring at the blood with a partially ravenous look. She had enough restraint not to jump him, but it was getting hard.

Nico grabbed Maggie's arm, already hauling her to the window. "No time to explain, Sweetheart, but now's the start of your first lesson!" He declared, wanting to get her far away from the human. "Lesson one: turning into a bat. Now jump out the window."

It took all his resolve to join Maggie at the window rather than run into the hall. He could smell his brother's blood and hear the frantic beat of his heart; if he came any closer, Thomas was not sure he could hold back.


"Oh Peggy! Come on out!" Francis called out while escorting the human down the hall.

Peggy looked around and took a chairleg and ripped it off, breaking it over her leg so it was sharp. She handed one half to Clara, “I’m gonna end him once and for all. Aim for the girl,” she said and then went over to the door, waiting for Thomas and Maggie to go before s he could open the door.

“Yes ma’am,” Clara replied, following Peggy’s lead, gripping the stick. She had never been a violent person, and fighting was outside of her nature. But Charles was out there, a defenceless human caught up in the world of vampires. He didn’t deserve any of this.

"You're an idiot if you really think this'll draw her out. She's probably already left, you know. Along with everyone else, so this is all a waste of your time," Charles rambled, but he was starting to feel panicked and he knew that Francis would know he did. How did this become his life?

Maggie was confused and a little scared at the idea. “I can’t just jump out a window!” She protested, though she was leaning far out it and looking out. What choice did she have? She had to trust Nico. “What if I don’t turn into a bat?”

Maggie took a deep breath and closed her eyes. She had to listen to them. She jumped out the window, freefalling for a few terrifying seconds before she felt weightless and her wings began to flap.

Nico listened for a moment, expecting to hear the tell-tale thud of a body hitting the ground, but there was none. "Huh. Can't believe she got it on the first try," he mused, hopping out of the window in bat form himself.

Francis ignored the boy's feeble attempts to talk his way out of the inevitable; Francis had been humiliated by Peggy, to the point of losing his whole coven. She would pay for that. Francis stopped at the end of the hall, gripping the human's shoulder's tightly, "Try to escape and I will snap your neck," he whispered.

Thomas looked back at Peggy once more, fearful of what Francis would do to her and to Charles. He knew he could not stay to find out; it would simply put Charles in danger. He turned his gaze to the window, surprised as his sister actually transformed into a bat; he was a little concerned that he would not have such success.

Peggy looked at Thomas about to jump. She wasn’t sure what Francis would Do to her if this didnt work, but she had to save Charles. She owed him that much. She opened the door slightly, “Francis!” She called.

Reluctantly, Thomas jumped after his sister  and by some miracle managed the transformation into a bat.

"I let them destroy everything I had in an attempt to rid the  world of you and your cruelty," Peggy jeered as she dropped the stake out of her held  wrist and into her free hand. She then stabbed at his side, "Why won't you just die!"

Francis threw the butler off again, getting frustrated by all their attacks. He'd had quite enough. "Maybe not, but I will make you suffer," he whispered in her ear. Francis Grabbed her arm tightly and dragged her down the hall, "bring the boy Anabella, we are leaving," he said.

Francis continued to dragged her down the hall, keeping a firm grip on her arm despite her struggles. "If you keep fighting, the boy dies," he threatened, "I am getting rather hunger," he siad, eyeing the human's throat longingly.

Panic gripped Thomas' unbeating heart as he heard Peggy call out to him, sounding scared and desperate. He flew back in a hurry, but when he reached he hall it was too late. They were already gone.

In bat form, Thomas flapped around the hall in a panic, bumping into walls and the ceiling as he had such little experience in that form. Finally he just landed on the floor and squeaked incessantly at the others. He was scared For Peggy and charles; what would Francis would do to them? He was also frantic as he did not have a clue how to change back.

"You can't just go after them alone," Clara said. "They could be leading us into a trap. Either we all go, or we wait and come up with a proper plan. They already have a head start. I'm sure Miss Peggy can handle things until we get there." She hoped, at least.

Francis looked at the pathetic human, wanting nothing more than to rip into his neck but in order to keep Peggy under control he would have to restrain. "Fine. but if you so much as try to move against us, he dies," Francis said, the cast an apologetic look at Anabella, "we'll find another human," he promised her. Francis nodded towards the subway entrance, "The sun will be up soon," he said then pulled Peggy along after him (from what I can tell, there was a subway already back then?)

Nico flew back inside, seeing as all the others had, retrieving his clothing. He turned to Ralph, frowning. "Do you have a death wish or something?" He demanded.

Clara was glad Nico had spoken up; she raised a good point. She glanced at the bat form of Maggie as she flapped around helplessly. "You need to focus on being humanoid again and do so calmly, because panicking makes it harder to turn back," she said. "I suggest you do it in the other room though, unless you want to be nude for us all."

Thomas did not like being picked up; he squeaked irritably then flew off into the room he and Peggy had slept in, flopping down on the bed alone. He tried to calm his mind and focus but it was easier said than done.

(omg. I don't remember him even putting clothes on in the first place....)

Once underground, Francis lead Anabella and their two captives down the tunnel and away from the prying eyes of the early morning commuters on the platform. (ooooh I wonder if there would be a NYC coven hanging around the tunnels)

Thomas let out a frustrated squeak in response then grew quiet as he tried again. Finally, he managed to block out all the panic and fear he felt raging inside. Thomas felt his body transform back into his human form; he quickly pulled on his clothes, which were scatted across the floor. Once his shirt was buttoned all the way, he opened the door and looked at Clara, "We have to go after them," he insisted, not thinking about the sun.

Francis dismissed her words, though Knew they had some merit; he and anabella were much stronger than Peggy and her coven but could they take on 6 vampires? He looked at the human and smirked; as long as they kept the human as collateral, Peggy’s coven would have to tread carefully. Of course, all he really wanted was to make Peggy suffer for humiliating him. “Let them come,” he said, “I will enjoy killing them one by one...while you watch”

Maggie flapped her wings indignantly, still having trouble changing back. She just could get herself calm enough, not with everything that had happened. Charles and Peggy were in danger and she was useless to help them. In all of her panic, she managed to finally find a moment of calm where was able to turn back. She sat, naked on the floor, unsure what to do. Her clothing was in the other room where everyone else was and she didn’t relish the idea of going out there nude to get them.

It was the longest day of Thomas' life, waiting in that small apartment with no idea how Peggy and his brother were faring. When the sun finally set, he was eager to set out and start their search. He was already by the door, eyeing the others impatiently.

Peggy had curled up on the ground, sleeping as long as her body allowed, tired from the struggle and from her being awoken from the previous night's activities so soon. She opened her eyes and slowly sat up, looking around her, trying to figure out a way to save Charles and herself.

Francis was awake and feasting on a human girl he’d dragged from the platform; the foolish girl had been standing there all alone. It had been far to easy. When he was done he passed the nearly unconscious human to anabella, “your turn love,” he said then grinned over at Peggy, “evening” he said pleasantly; he was in a much better mood since feedjng

Peggy raised her nose to him, turning her face away, still calculating in her head, but the  smell of the blood did call to her a bit, but she wasn't very hungry and she'd gone 40 years without human blood, she wasn't completely immune to its call, but she'd learned to resist long ago.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 18, 2019, 04:22:22 PM
Charles watched in a mixture of horror and disgust as Anabella fed on the girl. He looked up at Francis as he spoke to Peggy and his expression turned to anger.
"So what's your grand plan? Are you just going to sit here with us and wait? Seems pretty impractical."

Post by: Emma-la on February 18, 2019, 05:03:23 PM
Maggie was fidgeting the whole time they waited, eager to get out and save her brother. Peggy had been kind, but Charles was her main goal. He was what was important to her. “Let’s go,” she said quickly when night fell. She wanted to rip Francis’ face off.

“We will need to feed too,” Thomas said as he stood at the door. If he and Maggie were hungry, Charles wouldn’t stand a chance.


Francis licked the blood off his lips as he eyed the boy, “if you like, we can lock you both away together now,” he offered, tiring of the human’s constant chatter.

Post by: Mara-la on February 19, 2019, 03:11:06 AM
This was a good point, they would need to feed, all of them. Especially in a big city like this, where Francis would likely use human blood to bait them. “Okay... let’s find a butcher shop,” Clara said.

Maggie glanced at Thomas. Now was probably the best chance to talk to him. They hadn’t really talked about what had happened. She stood. “Yes, Let’s.” She was beside Thomas, giving him a meaningful look.

Post by: kristina-la on February 19, 2019, 04:06:55 AM
Francis growled and turned his gaze away; he had a handle on his hunger (that was a lot of h's!), maybe not like Peggy, but he could control it! "Enough!" Francis snapped and grabbed Charles by the throat in his anger, "Maybe I should just kill him now! Would you like that Peggy?"

Thomas sighed and looked at his sister; he had yet to speak with Maggie about what happened. "Mags..." he started as his hand slipped from the doorknob.

Peggy stood up and furrowed her brow, “You told me to be quiet and then continued to provoke me. How did you expect me to react. Put him down Francis. You have no quarrel with the boy. Only me. I told him to get the people from the town. I told him to burn your coven to ash.”

“We do need to hurry,” Clara said gently to the siblings, a pointed look at Nico. “We need to find them before the night is over, and we need to stop for a feed first. We don’t have a lot of time. As much as you two need to talk about everything, it’s best if you do it later.”

"And please refrain from calling our brother a bloodbag," Thomas requested, "really unhelpful," he muttered as his stomach ceased with hunger. He did not want to think about his brother's blood. He let go of his sister and headed out the door; the sooner they reached Peggy the better.


Francis grumbled irritably and shoved the human back to Peggy, "Fine," he snapped.

Charles worried his bottom lip, but his demeanor seemed to relax somewhat. "You know, everything's sort of been hell since I knocked on your dood that first day. I know that wasn't your intention, but it just...it all goes back to you." He didn't sound or seem angry (which was new), just...solemn.

"I...I certainly didn't intend to tear your family apart like this. I thought keeping Thomas for a year...it would do little harm. Years for me are short and I didn't quite grasp what it would mean to your family, but I wanted to keep my friends safe." Peggy played with a curl of her hair and sighed out, "And I definitely never would have gone out of my way to fall in love with Thomas or him with me. I certainly had every intention of him going home with you, even up until the moment you arrived at the door. I just wanted him to leave so he could get his life back, but he had told me how much  he hated working at the haberdashery and how I admit, I enjoyed our time together."

"And now he and my sister are both vampires and will stay with you. Granted, that is if you make it out of here alive." He leaned his head back and looked up, though his gaze was unfocused.

Peggy looked over at Charles before glancing her eyes to the ground. It doesn't have to be she thought, but chose not to say it. She knew he'd never agree. That Charles would rather die than be turned. She took a breath, "I am truly sorry about Maggie. I though Nico's urges were controlled by now."

"Charles, anything romantic between your brother and I has strictly been in the few days since you and your sister arrived back at my home, before then we lounged around the library, walked around the greenhouse, I played piano for him in the study, it was purely platonic," Peggy told him and chuckled, "Unless those are the details you dislike."

"I left, that's all. I made a choice and he didn't like the outcome.

the smell of blood was overwhelming for Thomas; even just walking from the apartment building to the butchers had been challenging for him. The others had been forced to hold him back from attacking a number of humans passing them by; the hunger was far too great for him to control on his own yet. When they finally reached the butchers, he was beyond relieved and wasted no time feeding.

Thomas finished last, finally backing away and wiping his mouth. He would never get used to that, no matter how good it felt to satisfy the hunger.

"Me, personally, I say Thomas will definitely regret this at some point. You know he will. But," he paused and took a breath. "He's stubborn. And he loves you, though I don't really understand that aspect, but he does. And he won't regret you.  Maybe the situation, but I doubt he'll ever have any regrets about you."

Peggy looked at him and with no self control whatsoever, reached over and hugged Charles tightly, “Thank you” she murmured.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 23, 2019, 03:04:34 PM
Charles hesitated before awkwardly returning the hug. He patted her back and then pulled away, clearing his throat. "That is, you know, if we ever get out of here."

Upon arriving at the spot where they believed Peggy and Charles were being held, Clara turned to the others. “Maybe one of us should change and go scout ahead?”

Post by: MercyResurrected on February 24, 2019, 06:49:31 AM
Peggy nodded and then stood up, walking quietly over to Francis. She took a breath and then very carefully touched his arm, “Can I speak with you privately?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 24, 2019, 07:09:18 AM
(fair warning, I am trying to make soup so I can't keep up with all of these rps :P)

Francis raised and eyebrow and stood up from where he sat against the tunnel wall, "I suppose," he said suspiciously, "Anabella, keep an eye on the human," he said then lead Peggy off a ways so they could have more privacy.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 24, 2019, 07:22:54 AM
Peggy walked with him and then speaking very plainly and quietly, making sure to keep her eyes directly on Francis, she began, “If I give myself over to you, will you stop all this? Let the human go? I’ll behave, do whatever you wish. Even...drink human blood, but I cannot let you hurt Charles or Thomas or Maggie.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 24, 2019, 09:06:39 AM
Anabella frowned, but stayed nearby the human as she watched them walk away. Her eyes narrowed as she watched, unsure if she liked whatever was happening.

Post by: kristina-la on February 24, 2019, 09:40:08 AM
Thomas nodded at Clara's suggestion, "that...is probably a good idea," he agreed, peering down the dark subway tunnel. He was growing more anxious the closer that got. He breathed in deeply and shuddered, "I...I smell Charles," he whispered


Francis smirked cockily, "and how am I supposed to take you for your work Margaret?" Francis questioned as his finger ran along her cheek, "You already fooled me once," he pointed out.

Post by: Mara-la on February 24, 2019, 10:05:15 AM
Clara eyed her group. Two newborns and Nico. Given his recent history, she wasn’t sure she could trust him to keep his control either. “Nico, maybe you should scout ahead,” she said. “You can change to and from bat form easily.” And that way, she could keep an eye on the newborns, make sure they didn’t lose control if a human showed up.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on February 24, 2019, 10:18:53 AM
Peggy turned towards his touch and closed her eyes, “Francis, how long have we known each other? 40 years?” Her eyes came up to meet his, her hands coming to hold his arms, “We both know that I’m what you’ve always wanted.”

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 24, 2019, 10:29:16 AM
"You know, you probably deserve better than how he treats you," Charles said to Anabelle. She looked down at him and glared.
"You'd better stay quiet, or I'll rip more than just your arm," she growled. He flinched but didn't waver.
"I'm just saying. Willing to drop you for some old flame? Not very fair," he shrugged.

“If it meant keeping everyone else safe,” Peggy told him and slid her hands up his arms further and up around his neck, “I’ll be unhappy. I can’t promise I’ll always be kind” she whispered closely to him.

Post by: kristina-la on February 25, 2019, 01:59:00 PM
Francis brought his hand to her cheek, running his thump along her pale skin, "How noble of you," he said.


Thomas put his hand on Maggie's shoulder, trying to calm her but also to calm himself. The smell of Charles and other human's milling about the subway platform was unsettling, "he'll be alright Mags," Thomas said, trying to sound confident.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

Post by: kristina-la on February 25, 2019, 03:37:22 PM

Nico had done exactly what they planned, turning into a bat and scouting out the area. He returned after several minutes, pulling his clothing back on. "Peggy was kissing Francis," he said in disgust. "And Anabella looked ticked right off. Seems to be her plan."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on February 26, 2019, 03:38:32 AM
“She... Wait, what?” Clara asked. That certainly was a turn of events. “It must be a diversion then. I can’t imagine another reason...”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on February 26, 2019, 07:29:07 AM
Francis did not have an answer to that question that would please Anabella; he pulled his arm out of her grip and looked at Peggy, "I'd rather have her on our side than against," Francis tried to reason

Thomas's jaw clenched at the thought of that monster kissing Peggy. He knew Peggy would never kiss Francis willingly; it had to be part of her plan. "has to be," Thomas agreed as he peered down the tunnel

Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 26, 2019, 07:31:32 AM
"You don't need her! I'm more than enough!" Anabella argued, her anger bordering on hysterics now. "She has caused everything to fall apart! Her and the human both deserve to die!"

Francis was tiring of Anabella's hysterics, "Love, we're trying to build a new coven. She..." he trailed off as his heightened senses picked up the arrival of 4 vampires, "It seems your coven has found us Margaret," Francis announced

Thomas followed her down the tunnel, growing nervous about taking on Francis and Anabella.

Peggy looked down the hall and a soft smile met her lips. Of course they'd find them. She turned around and looked at Francis, "You have a choice to make then. I come with you, this is all over, but if you'd rather stay with her..." Peggy got up  and stepped back towards where her coven was arriving from.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on February 26, 2019, 04:25:19 PM
Clara glanced at Ralph. Where the heck has he come from? And there was something wrong with him too... “let’s not get carried away,” she said. She listened. She could hear Francis now. And if she could hear them, they could definitely hear her and the others.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 28, 2019, 07:47:25 AM
Anabella narrowed her eyes at Peggy and then whipped around to Francis. "Yes, I suppose you do have a choice now," she growled.

Charles looked down the tunnel where apparently the others were coming from and immediately tensed with fear. Would his siblings be able to not try and kill him? He certainly hoped so, but he wasn't sure.

Francis looked between the two women then down the tunnel, knowing he would have to choose quickly as the other would be upon them in mere moments. He growled in frustration and set his eyes on Anabella; he quickly grabbed the human by the neck and turned his gaze to Peggy, "Tell them to stand down or I will snap his neck"

Charles grappled with Francis' arm, trying to get him to let go. His eyes darted to the side as his siblings and the others entered, watching them fearfully. He really didn't know if he was going to make it out of this alive.

Anabella smiled and stepped over toward Francis, watching the others enter with a glare.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 01, 2019, 05:08:52 AM
Thomas did as told, walking in and remained at the entrance; his eyes darted from Peggy to Charles, trying to make sense of what was happening. He was terrified for Charles and it broke him to see the fear in his brother’s eyes.


Francis’ grip on the boy only tightened as he struggled, “don’t bother” he hissed, keeping his eyes on Peggy’s coven. Even though he and anabella were stronger, he was not sure they could take on four experienced vampires and two newborns. The odds were not good, so he would have to use the human.

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 01, 2019, 05:33:21 AM
Peggy realized she might actually have to stay with Francis to keep Charles safe. She looked are Thomas, heart in her throat, lip quivering before looking to Francis, “I told you...I’ll stay. Just the boy go.”

"A choice between evils." Ralph answered, moving forward. "If you kill him," he told Francis, "then what's to stop us from attacking?"

Charles closed his eyes and coughed, trying to get some air in through Francis' crushing grip.

Post by: kristina-la on March 01, 2019, 12:09:09 PM
Thomas' eyes flickered to Peggy as she offered to stay with Francis to save Charles. The situation couldn't be that hopeless could it? He took a cautious step forward, setting his gaze back to Francis who in turn tightened his grip around Charles' throat, "Please..." he siad, probably sounding pathetic; it was taking all his restraint not to lunge at Charles himself!

"And if I let him go, what stops you from attacking me?" Francis demanded, ignoring Peggy. He wasn't sure he really wanted her to stay with him, not when she'd be a miserable buzz kill all the time.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on March 01, 2019, 02:05:06 PM
Clara glanced around. "If you just... hand Charles this way, I'm sure Miss Peggy will keep her word. She's a very honest person," she said. The situation had just become more complex. Ralph had had human blood, meaning he would be more likely to take an unwanted sort of interest in Charles. The newborns were going to be difficult. Nico was Nico, having turned Maggie. Plus, there was the two enemy vampires. One wrong move... "Please," she added, hoping some sort of politeness would help.

Nico let out a deep sigh and crossed over to where Francis was, standing beside him and turning to face the others. "I'm fed up with all of this," he announced. "Squabbling over a pathetic blood bag, and for what? This is not what we're meant to be." He looked at Francis. "You are far stronger than Peggy or any of the others could hope to be. I..." he swallowed hard. "I want to join you."

A distraction, perfect. Personally, Nico had been hoping to catch Francis off guard with his act of loyalty, but Ralph's sudden impulsiveness worked just as well. With Francis preoccupied he took the opportunity to lunge at him, singing his fangs deep into the flesh of the other vampire's throat.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 05, 2019, 12:37:47 AM
Anabella rushed forward at the same time, wrenching Charles away from Clara roughly. He cried out as he felt something break in his arm, though he didn't really know or care what it was. It now hung uselessly at his side as Anabella pulled him to her. However, she quickly tossed him to the side to go and try to help Francis when she saw what was happening.

Post by: kristina-la on March 05, 2019, 12:29:28 PM
Francis yelled out in pain and shock, not expecting Nico to be so bold. He tried desperately to push the vampire off him, "Anabella! help!!" he said pathetically.

Thomas heard his brother's bone break, which infuriated him. His eyes set on Anabella and he lunged at her before she could rush to Francis' aid. He did not care if she was stronger than him, "enough," he snarled at her

Francis sounded scared. Good. Nico bit into him harder, nails burrowing into his flesh, fangs tearing at his throat. It was brutal, and animalistic, but Nico was determined to kill him.

Clara followed Maggie and Charles closely. She didn’t know if Charles was bleeding (it was hard to tell, since Ralph now smelled of human blood), and she didn’t know how well Maggie could control herself. Plus, the others seemed to be handling Francis and Anabelle well. “Is he alright?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 05, 2019, 01:00:49 PM
“He doesn’t look alright!” Maggie exclaimed, looking him over. “Did you hear what she did to him?” All of the scents in the area were confusing her, but it was probably for the best as she couldn’t pick anything specific out with Charles.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 05, 2019, 03:12:30 PM
"Somethings broken," he managed to grind out as he held his arm against him. He clenched his teeth and tilted his head back, sucking in short breaths to try and keep himself calm and ignore the pain. It wasn't working very well.

Anabella growled at Thomas, her gaze flickering toward what Nico was doing. "No!" She screamed, true horror overtaking her features as she pushed against Thomas to get to him.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 05, 2019, 03:32:24 PM
Nico was only vaguely aware of everything that was going on, of Peggy and Ralph helping him in bringing Francis down. It was almost poetic, in a way. He had brought Francis and his insanity down upon their coven, and it was up to him to bring him down. He pulled back, fangs bared, his entire front soaked crimson. Without thinking he grabbed the other vampire's head, violently wrenching it to the right before tearing it from Francis' neck.

Peggy heard Anabella's cry and her eyes locked on her. She approached her and held her head high. She was still the leader of her coven. She now had the high ground. She stepped on  one of the woman's hands and growled, "Leave. Leave New York and never return. Or I'll Nico do the same to you."

Thomas got to his feet, stared at the headless body of Francis; it left him feeling almost queasy. He tore his eyes away and settled on Charles, breathing hard and starting to back away. There tunnel was filled with the smell of human blood, from Charles and from Ralph.

"Don't touch me," Anabella growled, ripping her hands away. She was still stronger, but she didn't have the willpower to do anything with her love's head rolling on the floor.

Clara inched back towards Charles and Maggie. She was still in a mild shock seeing a decapatated head rolling on the floor, but she figured it would be a lot worse for the Juniper siblings, who had probably never seen anything remotely gruesome. “Don’t look,” she said, raising her arms to turn them away.

Post by: Emma-la on March 06, 2019, 01:40:01 PM
Maggie couldn’t stop staring though, taken in by the disgusting scene. “What do we do now?” She asked, repulsed.

"Leave it in the sun, the light will turn it to dust," Peggy told her and then looked at Thomas and then others, "We can go back to the apartment now."

"Miss Peggy... Charles really should see a doctor," Clara said, gazing at the human warmly and with concern.

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 06, 2019, 02:19:28 PM
Peggy looked to Charles and immediately came to his side with the others, though back enough not to crowd him. She nodded, "Yes, he should. I...I just don't know the city well enough to know where one is. I'm sure if we ask someone in the subway, they could direct us."

"I can get to a hospital myself," Charles said, glancing around at them as he straightened up. "You all should probably go, though. Especially the bloody ones," he said, glancing at Nico and Ralph with disgust.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 06, 2019, 03:56:55 PM
Nico was eerily quiet. "I'm... I'm going to go clean myself off," he said to no one, heading for the door.

Post by: Mara-la on March 06, 2019, 04:09:15 PM
"I can go with you, if you'd like," Clara offered to Charles. He looked shaken up, and she felt bad that he was in this whole mess.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 06, 2019, 04:14:22 PM
Maggie watched Nico go and glanced between him and her brother. Then she heard Clara and made her decision. “Please make sure he gets medical attention.” She headed off following Nico.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 06, 2019, 04:21:47 PM
Charles was about to protest as his sister walked away, but then he glanced down at his arm and felt his head start spinning. "Ah, sure, you can come," he said halfheartedly to Clara.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on March 06, 2019, 04:32:24 PM
Clara watched as Maggie and Nico walked off. "Come then," she said gently. "We'll get you all fixed up." Plus, she figured, Thomas and Peggy may need some time alone to discuss everything that had gone down. She led Charles back towards civilization.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 06, 2019, 04:37:17 PM
Nico walked for a while, feeling abnormally agitated. He wasn't sure what it was. It wasn't like it was the first time he'd ever killed anyone. He stopped abruptly, hugging himself as if for comfort. Was he growing soft? How pathetic.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 06, 2019, 04:38:55 PM
MAggie watched him quietly, growing more and more worried by the second. When he stopped, she stopped. “Are you...okay?” She asked in a tentative voice.

"I don't need you to try and comfort me," Charles said as he walked after her, only looking straight ahead. "Once I get checked in you can go back to them, no need to wait around or come with me or...anything."

Thomas tore his eyes from the severed head of Francis and watched as his siblings walked off. He closed his eyes and breathed in deeply in a lame attempt to calm down after everything they'd just been through. He couldn't get the image of Nico ripping Francis' head off; the look of shock on the vampire's face. It felt almost wrong to be so happy that he and Peggy would not have to worry about her former lover again. He walked over to Peggy and just drew her into his arms, overwhelmed with relief that she was okay, "I was so scared when he took you," Thomas whispered.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 06, 2019, 04:54:06 PM
"I'm not angry," Charles clarified. He briefly glanced at her and then looked ahead again. "I'm just...done. I told Peggy I think I'd be better off on my own anyway, and this is the start of that." He hesitated, worry creasing his features. "Wait, we're going to a hospital. And there's blood there. And you're a vampire."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 06, 2019, 04:55:32 PM
Nico almost jumped. He'd been in such a daze he hadn't heard her following him. Her, a clumsy newborn. "I'm fine," he said. "Francis is dead, we're all free and happy."

Post by: Mara-la on March 06, 2019, 05:14:23 PM
“I’ve been to a hospital since I’ve turned,” Clara said. “My sire... before he turned me he told me how he kept in control. It’s worked well for me.” The mention of Christian made her a little sad. She still missed him, after all this time. “As long as I’ve fed recently - which I did before coming to get you - I can ignore the human blood for a time. You needn’t worry.”

Peggy was surprised and jumped a little as Thomas took her in his arms, but soon melted down, putting her arms around him as well, burying her head in his shoulder, her fingers digging deeply into his back as she clung to him. She suddenly felt tremendous guilt for kissing Francis like she did, even if only as a ploy to get Charles free, for that brief moment, she almost felt...a small spark of their past relationship. But that was over now. He was dead and for good. She couldn't help the feeling though, so silent tears fell down her face and she murmured, "I'm sorry."

Clara was going to try and say something uplifting but his mention of work caught her attention. “What’s it like, reporting?” She asked. “There’s so much out there that I’ve missed. What’s new?”

"Whats new....ah, well, Coolidge is still the president, there's been a few speakeasy busts, mob's running around.." he ticked them off with his fingers and then attempted a shrug, but hissed in pain. "Ah, anyway, nothing all that exciting has happened lately. Been a bit of a dry spell, I suppose."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on March 07, 2019, 02:27:26 AM

"This way," he said, turning to the right and walking down that way. Luckily there weren't too many people out, since it was night, so he wasn't too worried about running into anyone.

Post by: kristina-la on March 07, 2019, 05:14:09 AM
Thomas did not understand what she had to apologize for; sure she kissed Francis, but he assumed it had simply been part of her plan. He drew back and looked down at her, “you have nothing to be sorry for,” he assured her.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 07, 2019, 05:38:51 AM
Nico curled his lip. "I killed him, so what. It's what we're made to do," he said. Of course he had never killed someone so brutally before, but hey, it was in his nature. Wasn't it?
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 07, 2019, 06:09:02 AM
Maggie was slowly advancing closer to Nico. “And you enjoyed it? You’re proud of it?” She goaded.

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 07, 2019, 06:15:53 AM
She crossed her arms and stared up at him with a defiant look on her face. “My brothers can handle themselves, it’s not like I can go to the hospital with Charles and I don’t really want to be around Thomas and Peggy. I’m here to look after my sire.” She poked him in the chest at that. “I’m not about to let you just turn into that dark brooding creature that you are.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on March 07, 2019, 06:17:17 AM
“It’s so metropolitan,” Clara mused, looking around them. “I grew up and lived in a small farming town near a factory before finding my way to Miss Peggy. “I always dreamed of coming to the big city and living a glamorous life, but that wasn’t what my husband wanted.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 07, 2019, 06:37:49 AM
Nico rolled his eyes. "If you knew half of anything about me then you'd know I'm not dark and brooding," he snapped at her, pushing him away. "Okay, here's another lession: treat the one who sired you with respect and don't touch them. Ever."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 07, 2019, 06:41:52 AM
She stumbled back a little but stood her ground as best she could. “Fine, I won’t touch you. But you’re not getting rid of me that easily.”

Post by: Emma-la on March 07, 2019, 06:50:03 AM

"You were married?" Charles asked curiously. "Or are you still married? Is it Ralph?" His questions spewed out as he thought of them, not really thinking of what he was saying.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on March 07, 2019, 07:19:05 AM
Clara chuckled at Charles's questions. "No, no, I'm not married anymore. I mean, I guess I technically still am? I don't know. But no, it's not Ralph. His name was Silas. He thinks I'm dead. Or, he probably does. That hospital visit I mentioned? It was to see him, a few years after I turned. I heard he had been in an accident, that he would be alright but... I just wanted to see him. He woke up, but was pretty medicated. I don't think he remembers."

"I don't think anyone likes hospitals," Clara replied as they entered. Yes, there was definitely the smell of blood here, there was no question. But there was also bleach and other strong chemicals that made the idea of feeding here very unappealing.

Thomas almost expected his heart to flutter, but it of course remained completely still in his chest; that was feeling he would struggle to get accustomed to. "Well, aren't we fortunate," he replied coyly as he walked with down the street towards the apartment building.

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 07, 2019, 01:20:31 PM
Peggy quickly smacked her hand to his chest and gave him an amused but stern look, “Thomas! Don’t be so scandalous. You’ve already ruined me, a woman unmarried,” she taunted him and continued on.

Post by: kristina-la on March 07, 2019, 01:31:13 PM
"Maybe we should get married then," Thomas said, tone not really serious though it was something he'd thought about. Of course, they weren't technically alive so it wouldn't be a legal marriage.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 07, 2019, 01:40:35 PM
Peggy paused in her steps for a moment and then continued, just walking silently along with him. That fear eeked its way into her head again, that Thomas would grow to regret her presence, that forever would be too long to spend with one woman. She also considered that she should tell Thomas about being childless.

Charles went over to a nurse and made up a story about what happened.  She had him admitted immediately to have his arm checked, but he paused to turn to Clara. "You can come up, if you truly want," he said before following after the nurse.

Post by: Mara-la on March 07, 2019, 01:50:05 PM

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 07, 2019, 02:14:00 PM
Peggy looked at him and held his hand tighter, “I will always live in fear that you will regret staying with me forever.” She looked down and avoided his eyes, “And...it will always only be the two of us forever.  Vampires can’t...reproduce”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 07, 2019, 02:20:41 PM
Thomas let her words soak in. He would never be father. Of course, it made sense; he probably should have realized that it would be impossible. Thomas nodded slowly, trying to collect his thoughts, "Peggy...one thing I know with out a doubt is that I could never regret staying with you forever, even....even if that means I'll never be a father," he said.

"I don't need pity," Charles said sharply. His hackles seemed to lower a moment later, though, and he cleared his throat. "But, thank you."
When they reached the room, the nurse quickly examined him before bringing a doctor to come set his arm.

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 07, 2019, 02:34:04 PM
Peggy looked at him with big, surprises eyes, a little glimmer of tears even. She took his face in her fingers and kissed him deeply for a long moment. She then pulled away and just put her forehead against his, “I love you”

Post by: Mara-la on March 07, 2019, 02:46:40 PM
Clara let him snap, and then waited silently while the nurse examined him. When the nurse left, she said, "Oh, I don't pity you Charles. Not one bit. I get to watch from afar as the people in my past life grow old and die while I get to live forever. If anything, I envy you. You don't have to watch them pass on.

Peggy nodded at him and laughed, “Thomas I wouldn’t care if only you and I ever knew we were married, just to know you love me so and to give you the same promise I’m return would be enough for me,” she said and then pulled at his hand, “Come along.”

"I don't think they've realized what immortality means. It doesn't really hit you until someone close dies," Clara said. "That's when it all becomes abundantly clear." It was the first time she had voiced aloud her struggles with everlasting life; she hadn't meant to, but it had come out. And she certainly hadn't anticipated that the listener be Charles. She shook her head, trying to ward away the thoughts.

Thomas' smiled stretched across his face as he thought of making that commitment to her; the thought excited him greatly. He walked alongside her back to the apartment, "Perhaps, we could return to your property and rebuild. Start a new life there," he said.

Her yellow-gold eyes met his. "That it has," she said. "My father passed away, I think it was five years ago, but I honestly couldn't tell you. I visited him, too, in the hospital. After you're turned, time becomes..." she shrugged. "It's not real anymore to you. The closest marker you have is when someone around you dies, but who wants to measure time like that?"

Peggy looked at him and she smiled, “I love that idea. We should go up to the property soon and see what we can forage from the fire. I’m hoping a lot of the cellars are in tact. I fear the library is gone though,” she said sadly as they walked up the block the apartment building was on.

Thomas nodded, just as sad about losing the library. It had been in that room in particular that Thomas felt a bond start with Peggy. They had spent so much time together in that room. "We can build a new library," he said as they finally came upon the building.

Peggy looked at Thomas and just everything he spoke of would bring more joy to her heart. She could not have found a better companion in all the world. She went into the building and headed for the elevator, growing increasingly embarassed about being in only a nightgown and her robe as they encountered people in the lobby and the elevator operator.

Clara sighed. "Peggy probably already talked to you and you probably don't want to hear it, but that's the reason you should stay. Not with us, but in their lives. You and your siblings have an advantage I've never seen, and that's knowing what we are and accepting it. When my husband found out about... well, he tried to burn my sire and I alive.

Peggy was grateful for Thomas covering her while they went through the hall. She frowned a bit though at his comment when they were in the elevator and sighed, "I promise, it's just another day or two, then you'll be fine.

Post by: kristina-la on March 07, 2019, 05:58:06 PM
Thomas nodded, though it was hard to imagine it getting easier. “I’m just...so scared that I will hurt someone,” Thomas said.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 08, 2019, 12:49:59 AM
"I suppose they're part of it, yeah." He sighed and finally looked up at her. "It's more just that...I don't want to lose my siblings. I don't, honestly, but this world is...not for me. I can't stand the idea of getting further and further from them, but it already feels as though I am."

Peggg looked at him and then gave him a little smirk, walking her fingers slowly up his chest, “Then I guess I’ll have to find something to keep you occupied in the mean time,” she said quietly.

“These have been rather unusual circumstances,” Clara said. “Usually we live as we did in the manor; quietly. This is much more excitement than we’ve had for a time.”

Post by: kristina-la on March 14, 2019, 12:50:33 PM
Thomas shuttered at her touch, his fears of hurting someone seeming less crushing. He took both her hands in his and pressed his forehead to hers, "You are the perfect distraction," he whispered.

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 14, 2019, 12:53:16 PM
Peggy smiled and pulled at his hands once they were upstairs and led him to the apartment. Once there, she looked around and groaned, looking at the mess from Francis' attack. She began to clean things up and put them back in place.

"I'd say these are a bit more than unusual circumstances," Charles muttered, rolling his eyes.

Post by: kristina-la on March 14, 2019, 01:35:39 PM
Thomas looked around at the mess left behind because of Francis. Memories of the attack still fresh in his mind; he would never forget Peggy calling out his name in desperation and being unable to do anything to help. He helped Peggy get things back in order, "Thank god we don't have to deal with Francis ever again," he said

Clara smiled at this, a slight chuckle escaping her. It wasn't funny, but his reaction to it was. "Well, yes, I suppose a whole coven is a bit unusual for a human to come across. Though, you must admit, we aren't that bad." The last bit was said playfully, trying to uplift Charles's mood a little.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 14, 2019, 02:05:15 PM
Charles looked up at her and the corner of his lips quirked slightly. "You could all certainly be worse, I'll admit that."

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 14, 2019, 03:11:25 PM
Peggy's nod was slow as she pushed a chair back into the table and then looked at Thomas, a smile coming to her lips as she watched him help. She came over and put her arms around him from behind, gently laying her head against his back and closing her eyes.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 14, 2019, 04:12:45 PM
Thomas smiled warmly as he felt her arms slip around him from behind, "a year ago I never imagined my life would be filled with this much joy," he admitted, thinking back on the days spent in the store with his father.

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 14, 2019, 04:17:18 PM
Peggy smiled brightly, "When you three came to my door, I was just glad I could do something good for someone else, no matter my condition." she then pulled away and laughed, "I royally screwed it up though." she leaned back against the table and slipped her robe off, getting warm, "I suppose it worked out for except for Maggie--and poor Charles."

Thomas could not deny that things had not gone well for his siblings. He of course had not wanted to see his sister go through such a horror, but it bring him some comfort knowing that he would not have to see her grow old and die. “Charles...he will be okay....” Thomas said, sounding unsure though

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 14, 2019, 11:42:51 PM
Peggy nodded and walked over to the corner of the room and pullled a record out, modern jazz music. “The driver. He lived here. He furnished it. I lent it to him since he was here doing deliveries so often. A place to escape from the sun,”. She put the record on the phonograph and moved the needle to play it, a smirk coming to her lips at how smooth and alive the music was.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 15, 2019, 01:37:55 AM
Thomas liked the way her face came alive when the the music filled the small apartment, just as it would back in thenlibrary when she’d be reading. He’d often sat in his sit, pretending to read while really watching her. Thomas joined her by the phonograph And took her hand, “I can only imagine what my father would say about this music,” he said as he gently spun her around and then into him

Peggy let him lead her and turned into him, carefully placing her hand on his shoulder and smiling at his comment. She shook her head, “To he fair, I didn’t enjoy it at first either. I felt it was so loud and aggressive, but it’s grown on me.”

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 15, 2019, 04:13:21 AM
“Poppycock. You’re the perfect partner,” Peggy mused as they danced through the room. After a few moments, she laid her head against his chest, her arm sliding around the back of his neck, holding their hands close to her chest.

"Oh, I once met a vampire who had generally awful hygiene," Clara said with a laugh. "It sounds ridiculous, but honestly? It was quite disgusting. You could have been stuck with a coven like that."
"Or, just, no coven at all," Charles commented. He didn't mean it to be harsh, but he couldn't help but wish none of this had ever happened at all.

Post by: Mara-la on March 15, 2019, 07:25:21 AM

Thomas smiled as they swayed to the music in each other's arms, enjoying every second he got to spend with her without having to worry about anything.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 15, 2019, 01:13:08 PM
Peggy danced with him and then slowly pulled away, leaning up and kissing him slow and softly. She then removed herself from his arms, humming along to the music as she went to the kitchen, pulling down glasses and a bottle of gin and a jar with a tight seal. She poured the gin into the glass first, then the blood. “Come. Taste this.” She told him.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 15, 2019, 04:07:44 PM
Thomas joined her in the kitchen, his eyes immediately drawn to the glass. He took the glass and took a cautious sip, trying not to gulp it down too quickly; he was still working on his restraint. "That...is amazing," he enthused.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 15, 2019, 04:11:33 PM
Peggy smiled at his lifted spirit and clinked her glass against his before drinking as well, "It wasn't long after I began bootlegging that I start experimenting with alcohol cocktails that involved blood. Alcohol has this way of warming the body when it's infused with the blood. It's one of the few ways we can get that feeling back again. The swell in your chest, a flush of the cheeks. I enjoy it so much." she told him and took another sip.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 15, 2019, 04:25:13 PM
Thomas took a sip, enjoying the taste but enjoying the feeling it gave him even more; it made him feeling alive for just a moment
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 15, 2019, 04:28:39 PM
Putting her half empty glass down, Peggy sealed the jar tightly again and corked her bottle of gin before putting them both back up in the cabinet. She finished her drink and then rinsed out the glass. The red stain of blood was bright on her lips against her pale skin. She blotted them on a kitchen towel. "Well then Thomas, how shall I keep you distracted now?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 15, 2019, 04:42:43 PM
Thomas grinned, “well, you are doing an awfully good job of that already,” Thomas admitted. He finished off his drink and put the glass aside. He took her hand and gently drew her to him once again, looking down happily, “I can think of one thing that would be most welcome distraction,” he said coyly, eyes flickering over to the bedroom.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 15, 2019, 11:24:39 PM
Peggy’s cheeks found the faintest blush and looked down, an unmistakable smile on her lips as well. She then looked up at him from her lashes before nodding and starting to walk that way, pulling his hand behind her, “Come along them” she said quietly.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 16, 2019, 03:53:15 AM
Thomas followed Peggy into the bedroom with an excitement that could not be concealed. He pulled her down on the bed with him, eager to enjoy the same intimacy they had shared previously. Perhaps their time together would not be ruined by something horrible happening, like the last time.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 16, 2019, 03:57:23 AM
Peggy looked at Thomas, laughing as she laid over top of him and stroked her fingers down his face and over his chest. She leaned down, kissing him softly, his lips, then his jaw, down to his neck before carefully grazing her fangs over the tender skin there.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 16, 2019, 06:36:28 AM
(she's still just in a robe right?)
also, how are we going to get everyone back together? Where do we even go from here? :P)

Thomas shuddered with pleasure as her fangs gently brushed against his neck. His hands slid around to her back and up to her shoulders, his fingers grasping at the thin material of her robe. 
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 16, 2019, 06:48:28 AM
(I assumed they’d all come back :P they don’t have homes or anything. She’s sort of their safe haven :P there’s gonna be trouble when she can’t deliver the alcohol to her speakeasy pals)

(And no, she took the robe off. She’s in her nightgown)

Peggy sat up, straddling Thomas’ waist. She unbuttoned his shorts, pushing it off and the putting her hands down to pull her nightgown off.

Maggie headed back for the apartment, unsure what she was going to do with herself now. It was clear Nico had no interest in her, so she would have to find her own path in her new life - or death.

Post by: kristina-la on March 16, 2019, 11:18:37 AM
Thomas held Peggy in his arms, lazily running his fingers along her shoulder, "I am effectively distracted," he whispered with a grin.

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 16, 2019, 11:25:12 AM
Maggie stepped into the apartment, not finding the others. She decided to search for them. However, she didn’t know the apartment very well, so the first door she opened was the bedroom. When she saw her brother and Peggy under the covers and clearly not wearing anything, she gasped and pressed her hands over her eyes. “Oh my god!” She shut the door quickly.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 16, 2019, 12:05:50 PM
The way Thomas ran his fingers over her reminded Peggy of the first time she’d seen him out of his bedroom when he was at the house. She’d crossed in front of the library and had to back up, looking at him as his fingers carefully drew down the spines of her books. The memory was suddenly interrupted as the door as thrust open and she gasped, startled and held herself close to Thomas. When she heard it was Maggie, when the door closed, she laughed into his chest.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 16, 2019, 12:09:17 PM
Thomas stared at the closed door, where his little sister had just stood moments before. He was absolutely mortified. "This is not funny, how can you be laughing? oh god, this is horrible," Thomas groaned.

“Oh Thomas dear, at least we weren’t being frisky. We were just laying here,” Peggy reminded him as she slid out of bed and went to the dresser, pulling out a dress and just slipping it over her frame. She came over and kissed him, “I’ve been alive too long to be embarrass by something so small” she whispered and then went to the door. She came out into the apartment and closed the door quickly behind her, “Maggie. You’re back.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 16, 2019, 12:25:56 PM
Maggie looked at Peggy, cheeks bright red. “I am. Unexpectedly I see.” She focused anywhere but Peggy now, not sure how to act.

Post by: kristina-la on March 16, 2019, 12:28:02 PM
It was easy for her to say, Maggie wasn't her baby sister! THomas groaned and got out of the bed and followed Peggy out, after changing into his clothes once again. "Mags..." he said awkwardly. He could only imagine what Maggie was thinking about them; she probably knew exactly what they had been doing.

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 16, 2019, 01:18:19 PM
“We were just enjoying an embrace. Nothing scandalous, I swear,” Peggy said casually and shrugged, “Not too much of an interruption. Are you thirsty?” She asked calmly and went to fetch the jar from the cabinet.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 16, 2019, 01:24:25 PM
With Peggy out of sight, Maggie gave her brother a pointed look. “I could use a drink.” She said, all the while staring at Thomas. “I can never I see that,” she told him pointedly. “God only knows what I would have seen if I’d come back sooner.”

Post by: Emma-la on March 16, 2019, 01:36:15 PM
Maggie stuck out of her tongue at him. “Just be more careful next time.” She didn’t want to walk in on them ever again. She would have to get revenge of course, that she was sure.

“Don’t be so dramatic you two,” Peggy said, her hearing of course able to  stretch to where they were. She poured Maggie a drink of blood and gin and then brought it over to her before turning over the record on the player.

She smirked, a million plans forming in her head to use that information against him. “I thought so.” She sat down, drinking primly. “I’ve decided to go back to the speakeasy I was working at as soon as I’m able.”

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 16, 2019, 02:56:47 PM

Thomas eyed his sister unconvinced; he was skeptical about her work in the speakeasy to begin with, but he knew she would never listen to what he thought about it. "You haven't been tested like that yet Mags, it's too soon," Thomas said cautiously.

"Please, just Peggy is fine," she told Maggie and sighed, shaking her head, "I think at least you should wait a week, but--" she crossed her arms over her chest, "I suppose I could come along. Chaperone you, at least the cravings part of you, not the adult woman you are."

Spending some time alone had done wonders for clearing his head. And, as much as he craved isolation, he knew now that leaving the coven was a stupid idea. He was starting to head back when something hit him on the back of the head. The small glass bauble shattered and he was doused with something akin to acid; holy water. He scrambled away, seething in pain as his flesh burned, as he tried to find the source of the attack. All too fast, however, a wooden stake was plunged deep into his chest. The figure holding it leaned into him, whispering in his ear. "Back to hell where you belong, demon."

---

Marina took a step back as the vampire collapsed, unmoving. The kill had been easier than she thought- he'd been distracted, clearly. Of course she had no time to consider why, as there were other demons in need of slaying in the area.

But first, she had to grab herself a hunting trophy...

There were two possibilities that made sense in Thomas' mind. one was that Charles had finally decided to go off on his own and he wasn't coming back. The second, was that something had happened to his brother. "He better be okay Clara," Thomas said, searching her face for the answer.

He was alone, the human who had been fraternizing with the demons. Marina followed him, her steps light and silence from years of practice following the monsters that lurked in the shadows. When she got close enough she lunged at him, the flat edge of a small knife pressed into his throat. "You're going to help me kill the rest of those monsters," she hissed at him. "Or die. Your choice."

Oh dear 😧)

Thomas would have liked to at least have the chance of saying goodbye to Charles, but he supposed that would have been too hard for all of them. “He’ll be okay,” Thomas said, not wanting to dwell on it much. He looked at Clara, “and did you happen to see nico or did he really take off?”

Clara shook her head. “No... I thought he’d find his way back here.” Should they start worrying? The sun would be rising soon.

When the edge of the knife pressed to his throat, his first thought was 'why me?'. Charles' eyes flicked to the side to try and see who was speaking. "That's not really a fair choice, ma'am. What's a lady like you ouf here doing making deals like that?"

Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 24, 2019, 04:21:01 AM
"A 'lady like me' is out hunting the blood sucking monsters that plague our world," she sneered. "I've been watching you all. You were in league with them, but I won't punish you for that so long as you cooperate. I've already killed one of their company; don't think I couldn't kill you with far more ease."

"I don't doubt that." Charles swallowed nervously and kept his chin up to try and avoid the blade. "I can't help you though, I have no idea where they are." He reached up with his good hand to try and push her arm away.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 24, 2019, 04:35:06 AM
She stepped away from him, feigning disappointment. "Oh, well that's too bad. Then I suppose you couldn't deliver this for me? I figured his fellow leeches would want his belongings back." She tossed him a small cloth bag. Inside were the sunglasses Nico always wore, along with his fangs, bloody and freshly ripped out of his skull.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 24, 2019, 05:02:24 AM
Charles peered inside and his eyes widened. He looked up at the woman, his expression tinged with real fear now. "Look, I honestly don't know where they are. I've never been there or seen it. I came looking and I got kidnapped by these idiots and they broke my arm and I just got out of this whole mess of a time!" He rambled on, his frustration coming out a bit now as well

Thomas hoped they had not seen the last of Charles, though for the time being he could not deny the relief he felt. Until he gained more control of his hunger, it would be better to keep Charles away. As for Nico, Thomas really wouldn't mind if the vampire never returned.  He looked at Peggy and nodded, "that's...probably a good idea," he said.

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 24, 2019, 01:47:38 PM
Peggy nodded and then went over to the kitchen where the telephone was and starting to dial for the operator, sitting down on the countertop with the phone set in her lap, looking at the sad lot of people in her living room.

"What a shame," Marina sighed, shoving the bag back into her pocket. "You're cute, but useless. So you'll have to die." With that she pulled a pistol out from under her coat, aiming it right between his eyes.

"I'm sure I'll find them on my own, and when I do, I'll string them all up in the sun and watch them burn," she told him cheerily. "Keep your ears peeled for the sound of demon screams, I'm sure you'll find it absolutely beautiful." She turned then and started walking away, an odd spring in her step.

Thomas looked down at his sister, his hands falling to his sides; if he hadn't asked Maggie and Charles to stay for a few more days, Maggie wouldn't have been turned. She would be free to pursue her dreams in the city. "I...I don't know Maggs," Thomas said quietly, "It won't be easy, but at least we have each other"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 25, 2019, 10:19:13 AM
Marina walked off, though she didn't go that far. She had an inkling, call it feminine intuition, that the boy felt something for at least one of the monsters. Perhaps he'd known them when they were still human? Either way she had a feeling he wouldn't just sit by while she made threats towards them. He would want to warn them, and she would follow.

 (I have officially accepted Charles' role as local dumbass™)

Charles looked around quickly for a moment before he turned and hurried on his way, back toward the direction Clara had gone. He still didn't know where the apartment was, but he was sure he could find it. Eventually. Before the trained vampire hunter.
...he tried his best not to feel completely hopeless as he trudged along the streets.

Thomas was trying not to let Charles' sudden departure bother him, but it was not easy. "Maggs...it's for the best. I...I don't even think I can be around him right now anyway,' he reminded her. "He still loves us. we'll see him again, okay?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 25, 2019, 02:42:56 PM
She nodded, though her heart wasn’t in it. She didn’t believe she would see him again. “He hates vampires,” she said softly. What if he’d rather they be really dead than vampires? She knew he couldn’t want that, Charles did love them too much for that. But the thought kept invading her head.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 25, 2019, 05:32:23 PM
The more conversation continued, the more awful and hollow Peggy felt. She quietly put the phone down and slipped away to the bedroom, closing the door lightly behind her as not to alert them. She went over and sat on the edge of the bed and held her arms around herself. This was all her fault. Her fault for revealing they were vampires. Her fault for letting them come to her house in the woods.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 26, 2019, 12:31:22 AM
Charles decided to base his search on places he thought a vampire might live. Or, rather, went to doormen and asked if any were living there under Peggy's name. He didn't even know if the apartment would actually be under her name, but he didn't have much else to go off.
He finally, however, made some headway. There wasn't a doorman because of the hour, but there was someone at the front desk. When he asked, he was directed upstairs - and he went as fast as he could. He knocked loudly on the door, anxiously looking behind him.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 26, 2019, 05:17:29 AM
Thomas sighed,” I know he does...but he still loves us maggie,” Thomas said firmly. Then, he tensed as someone knocked on the door. He knew instantly it was a human, maybe even Charles. He couldn’t quite tell. He made no move towards the door, not trusting himself with whoever stood on the other side.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 26, 2019, 05:22:42 AM
Peggy heard the door and smelled the human as well and her eyes lit up. She came out of the room and rushed to the door, opening it, “Charles!” She said, guilt washed away and turned to Thomas and Maggie, “See. No more tears!”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 26, 2019, 07:28:43 AM
Charles stalled, looking at his siblings with confusion. Were they crying over him? He quickly shook the thought away and focused on Peggy. "There's a hunter after you. All of you. I think she already killed Nico."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 26, 2019, 11:00:19 AM
As soon as Maggie saw Charles, she threw her arms around him tightly. But when he spoke, she stiffened. “Nico...a hunter...what? This is crazy, that can’t be true.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 26, 2019, 11:17:47 AM
Thomas stayed where he was, eyes fixed on Charles as he tried to process what he was telling them. A hunter? Nico was presumably dead? "How do you know all this Charles?" he asked
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 26, 2019, 11:27:34 AM
"Ouch, Mags, my arm," Charles winced but patted his sister's shoulder. He turned to Thomas and took a deep breath. "She came up and showed me. Stuff she had...taken from him." His stomach turned a bit at the memory. "She threatened to kill me but then she left, saying she'd find all of you and...well, that doesn't matter. But you all need to go."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 26, 2019, 11:29:39 AM
Peggy looked at Charles and stepped back, shaking her head, “There haven’t been hunters in New York in...30 years. Why would one come now? And alone? Usually they are in a large group.” She then paused. “His fangs?” She asked coldly, “Is that what she had?” She then furrowed her brow, “There’s no time to speak them. You’ve probably let her right to us.”

Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on March 26, 2019, 12:20:28 PM
Clara was confused about why Charles was back, that was, until he mentioned that a vampire hunter was after them and had killed Nico. She felt her stomach drop. Poor Nico. "Miss Peggy's right, we need to go." She looked at Charles then. "You should come with us. If this hunter knows your face, you won't be safe."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on March 26, 2019, 02:26:23 PM
Thomas should have known their moment of peace would be over so quickly. He looked at Peggy, the alarm clear in his eyes. "Well then let's go, now," he said urgently.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on March 26, 2019, 02:27:33 PM
Maggie grabbed Charles by the uninsured arm, wincing at the idea of them no longer being safe. “You came back for us,” she said in a soft voice.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 26, 2019, 04:02:39 PM
Charles looked at Maggie and his gaze softened. "Of course I did. I couldn't let anything happen to you," he touched her hand to move it from his arm and the squeezed it before letting go. He turned to Clara and looked almost ready to argue, but he held his tongue and nodded.
"If she did follow, though, I could maybe try to lead her away."

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 26, 2019, 04:58:02 PM
"We can fly away. I'm not sure where or how to let you know we are safe, Charles," Peggy told him and looked towards the window again, "Though I also am wary of you going up against this hunter."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 27, 2019, 12:39:16 AM
"Here." He dug around in his pocket for a pen and paper, then quickly wrote a number down and handed it to her. "That's the paper I'm working for. You can call when you're safe, and if I'm not the one that gets it then someone else will let me know at least." He didn't comment about the hunter because he really wasn't sure about it either.

Post by: Emma-la on March 27, 2019, 12:49:45 AM
Maggie didn’t want to leave her brother at the mercy of this hunter. She had killed Nico, she was clearly volatile. “I’ll stay with you Charles,” she said resolutely. “I’ll make sure she doesn’t hurt you.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Mara-la on March 27, 2019, 01:16:50 AM
Clara didn’t like this. She didn’t like the idea of leaving Charles to throw off a clearly dangerous killer. She turned to Miss Peggy - no, it was just Peggy now. It had been for the short time they’d been away from the manor, and she would have to adapt. “Peggy, no. We can’t leave him behind.” It felt strange, speaking so informally to her once mistress.

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 27, 2019, 03:23:10 AM
Peggy looked at Clara and smirked a little at how the woman addressed her. The authority that peeled through. She nodded slowly and then took a breath, “What do you suggest then? Where can we hide and not be noticed? But be underground in case the sun comes up?”

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 27, 2019, 03:44:56 AM
"We can't really wait around and debate it," Charles said, a bit exasperated. "She's obviously coming after you all and she's following me so the most logical thing is for you all to leave and me to lead her off, or at least try. Buy you some time."

Maggie nodded, feeling stiff and nervous herself. “We’re not far now.” She could see the building in the distance and they slipped into an alleyway towards a back entrance. She rapped quickly twice on the door and a little eyehole opened up.

“Password?” Said a deep voice.

Maggie leaned against the doorway pouting. “Oh I haven’t gotten the new one yet. I’ve been away! But you recognize me, dontcha, Paulie?”

Peggy looked at Thomas and squeezed his hand, “I promise. I will not let anything happen. Let me be your distraction.” She said quietly.  She was scared as well, but for a whole different reason. She hadn’t ventured out of the mansion in years. The smell of cigarettes coming through the door was already vividly bringing back memories of her father in his study, smoking while he worked and while he taught her how to do the finances as well.

Clara had followed and was intrigued by the use of a password. In reality, she had no idea how it worked. She overheard Peggy tell Thomas that he needed to teach her to be modern, and Clara related to that. Though younger than Peggy, she had lived a very sheltered life before with old fashioned views. This was very new. The cigarette smoke reminded her of Silas and Christian both, at that damn work event. Thinking about that for the first time in years, she felt that haunting pain again of loss, especially seeing Peggy and Thomas together.

Thomas ignored Charles comments and rolled his eyes at his sister before setting his gaze on Peggy. He smiled and gave her hand a comforting squeeze; she certainly stood out amongst the other women but in his mind it was in a good way, "Personally, I don't care for the new fashions," Thomas said while following Maggie and trying to keep his focus on Peggy rather than the dense crowd.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 31, 2019, 08:40:42 AM
After the women’s fashions, the next thing Peggy noticed was the way women just draped themselves over the men and each other. Women casually in men’s laps or with their arms wrapped like snakes around a gentleman’s neck but hardly making eye contact with each other. It was so strange and she felt a bit scandalized. It would draw gasps if she even held hands with her brother when they were teens, now it seemed strange to only be holding hands with Thomas. Thomas. She turned her head to look at him as she listened to his words. She smiled softly and then sat down at a table near to the bar and motioned to the seat beside her for Thomas, “A vampire hunter wouldn’t suspect us to be in a place like this. So crowded.”

"Hopefully this woman did not follow us here," Thomas said as he took a seat beside Peggy. "have you encountered a hunter before?" he asked.

Peggy looked at him and shook her head, “No but francis had.” She sighed, “I thought things were safe now and that if I didn’t kill humans, I’d never be in that kind of danger.” She felt her chest grow tight, “Nico...” she muttered and shook her head.

Charles wandered up to the bar to grab a drink. He leaned against it, tapping to get the bartender's attention. "Gin and tonic, my good man," he said cheerfully. Had he known this is what it was like here, he'd have come with Maggie long ago. He turned around to watch the crowd once he got his drink, sipping it carefully.

Post by: kristina-la on April 01, 2019, 07:44:42 AM
Thomas had not been fond of Nico, especially considering what happened with Maggie, but Nico had redeemed himself at the end. Francis was finally gone because on him. Thomas sighed and looked out into the crowd of people, "I can't believe he's gone," Thomas siad, then after a pause he looked over at Maggie, thankful that she had chosen to return rather than stay with Nico. The hunter probably would have killed her too. "this woman is going after the wrong vampires. She should be going after the remnants of Francis' clan," he muttered

Peggy nodded and sat up nice and tall, “Anabelle is still out there.” A man came over to Peggy and opened a box, “Cigarette miss?” She furrowed her brow, but remembered that she was supposed to look like she belonged her. She nodded and took one, letting him light it before handing him a quarter. She just held it in her hand for a moment while the man offered one to Thomas.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 01, 2019, 10:57:54 AM
Thomas took the cigarette from the man without a second thought, giving the man an appreciative nod as he passed over a quarter. Thomas normally wouldn't smoke but he had on occasion, usually with his father. He glanced at Peggy and a small grin inched across his face as he observed her hesitation, "It won't kill you," he pointed out; of course, there were already dead so his statement could not be more true.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 01, 2019, 12:07:49 PM
“It’s not that,” Peggy said as she took a soft drag off and then blew the smoke out elegantly like she’d seen her father do a hundred times, “Its just not ladylike. Or at least- it wasn’t” she said and took another puff. She knocked the ash off the end and looked at Thomas, “You’ve smoked before?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 01, 2019, 01:02:06 PM
Thomas nodded as his mind wandered to old memories, "With my father, sometimes," Thomas said with a small shrug of his shoulders.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 01, 2019, 01:31:58 PM
Peggy took another drag off her cigarette before leaning over and kissing Thomas, “I’m going to get a drink. Do you want some water or juice?” She asked as she placed the cigarette in the ash tray.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 01, 2019, 03:02:39 PM
Maggie sidled up to the bar near Charles, though she gave him a little distance. “My usual, if you will,” she told the bartender with a flirty wink. She looked to Charles. “So I take it you don’t hate the place after all?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 01, 2019, 03:36:47 PM
"No! This place is the berries, Mags!" Charles beamed at her. "How are you doing?" He asked, remembering the situation at hand.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 01, 2019, 04:37:10 PM
She took her drink from the bartender and downed it all in one go, the amber liquid stinging on the way down. “I think I’m okay. Nervous. But I don’t think I’m a danger to anybody here right now.” She gave him a small grin. “This place is just heavenly. I don’t know what you were picturing, some sort of dump?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 02, 2019, 01:06:07 AM
"Pretty much. I thought it'd be crawling with sleaze balls," Charles admitted. He nursed his drink carefully, eyeing her empty glass.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 02, 2019, 01:41:32 AM
Thomas smiled and nodded, “water would be lovely,” said with a glance at his sister who seemed not to be worried about drinking. He hoped she could control herself.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 02, 2019, 02:32:03 AM
Peggy went up to the bar and waited to get the bartender's attention. A man came up beside her and tapped on the bar, "Hey keep, can you get me a bourbon and uh--" he glanced at Peggy and smiled, "Whatever the lady wants." Peggy looked at him surprised and furrowed her brow, "I can certainly pay for my own drinks but thank you." The guy puffed up his chest, standing taller, "What, you're too good for me sweetheart? I just wanna buy you a drink."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 02, 2019, 06:25:48 AM
Thomas glanced over at the bar, overhearing the conversation between Peggy and the man. He put out the cigarette in the ash tray and walked over to them, "Do we have a problem here?" he asked as he stood beside Peggy and glared at the man.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 02, 2019, 06:43:34 AM
“Thomas,” Peggy said quickly and put a hand on his arm, not wanting him to get flustered and hurt the man. The man let out a scoff, “Oh, so she’s your woman. Well, you should either come to the bar yourself or teach her some manners” Peggy cleated her throat and just turned to ignore him, “Can I get water and a whiskey, neat please?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 02, 2019, 08:29:31 AM
Thomas let out a low growl in response, "I believe you are the one that needs to learn some manners," Thomas said, wanted nothing more than to act on the hunger burning inside him; to silence that relentless beating coming from the man's chest.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 02, 2019, 09:44:18 AM
Peggy took their drinks and then grabbed Thomas’ arm a little roughly, “Come on. It’s not worth it.” She whispered. The man just sneered at Thomas before commenting, “Yeah, just take your bearcat and go chase yourself”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 02, 2019, 09:55:38 AM
Charles looked over at the altercation and tensed up. He walked over, glaring at the man. "Look, bimbo, just back off if you know what's good for you," he said, glancing at his brother.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 02, 2019, 10:53:13 AM
Maggie watched apprehensively, concerned that a fight might break out. They couldn’t get themselves kicked out, so she slid in between them with a coy smile on her face and placed her hand on the man’s chest. “Oh come now, no need to fight. She’s taken, but you can always buy me a drink.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 02, 2019, 11:00:31 AM
Thomas was grateful for his siblings intercession; he might have reacted poorly had they not. Thomas breathed in deeply and backed away from the man.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 02, 2019, 11:48:06 AM
Peggy sat back down at the table and put their drinks down before taking another drag off the cigarette and looking at Thomas, “Thank you,” She said softly.

The man looked at Maggie and calmed down a little, raising his eyebrow at her, “Yeah, I can buy you a drink. You and your friend,” he said and nodded at Clara. “Barkeep, whatever they want”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 02, 2019, 11:52:02 AM
Maggie grinned at Clara and nodded for her to order. "I'll take a whiskey sour," she told the barkeep. She played with her straw of the drink she already had and leaned against the bar. "What brings you in here?" she asked the man.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 02, 2019, 12:00:49 PM
“I like strong drinks and hotsy-totsy ladies,” he said and looked Maggie over from head to toe this time, hand coming to her waist, “You like to dance, baby?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 02, 2019, 12:08:19 PM
Maggie giggled at the sudden contact. She shouldn't, she really shouldn't. But he was buying her drinks and making her feel special, so she leaned into the touch. "Well normally I'd make you woo me a bit more, but I think I can make an exception tonight."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 02, 2019, 12:28:51 PM
Thomas smiled faintly as he took a sip of water, "You're very welcome. I...I know I should have stayed out of it but I just...I couldn't sit there and do nothing," he admitted then glanced over at his sister and the man with a look of disapproval. The last thing he wanted to see was men fawning over his little sister.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 02, 2019, 12:58:50 PM
"Mm, I like a woman who knows what she wants, but I'm afraid you did all the wooing around her, talking me down from a fight," he said and took her hand, leading her out towards the dance floor, "Hicks. Nyle Hicks, and you, doll?"

"Thomas, I know that you're quite aware that I can handle myself. I'm much stronger than that man will ever be, though I didn't want to quite alert him to that fact," Peggy said and then reached her hand out to turn Thomas' face so he looked back at her, "She's her own woman. You can't always be looking over her."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 02, 2019, 01:07:19 PM
Maggie's lips parted slightly as she followed him, eyes hungry. "Maggie," she told him as she ran her thumb lightly along his hand. "Maggie Juniper. I actually work here occasionally."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 02, 2019, 01:19:18 PM
"Oh, well then I certainly know where to keep finding you," he said and took her hand as he began to dance with it. It was a bit difficult to keep talking as he began to dance in such a lively manner.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 02, 2019, 01:39:39 PM
Thomas held her gaze as he collected his thoughts; he felt so foolish for reacting so unnecessarily. Thomas knew Peggy could handle herself just fine without him intervening so pathetically. He sighed and nodded, "I know, I know. She will always be my little sister and I just...I feel as though I've already failed her," he admitted, "I couldn't bear it if anything else were to happen.."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 02, 2019, 01:43:29 PM
Maggie let the conversation die as they danced, instead allowing her body to do the talking. The dance was particularly close quarters, after all. "You're good," she commented happily.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 02, 2019, 01:50:30 PM
“You’re pretty amazing yourself, you’re quite the Olivia Twist,” he joked and then came much closer to her, “You know the white haired creature and her burly friend?” He asked glancing at the two sitting at their table.

Peggy sat back in her chair and leaned her head back, blowing smoke up towards the ceiling. She then looked at Thomas, “I love you,” she said quietly, bringing her chair closer to his. She wasn’t going to sit in his lap or anything, but she was fine with being close enough to talk, “Do you like this? The noise and the bustle and the intimacy?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 02, 2019, 02:01:27 PM
"Oh them? That's my brother," she said distractedly. "And his girl." His scent was intoxicating, the blood pumping in his veins. It was all a little worrying, yet she couldn't find it in her to tear herself away.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 02, 2019, 02:15:15 PM
“And you just brought yourself over as a piece offering?” Nyle said and smirked, “Some kind of tomato you are.” He grazed his fingers down her back, his heart beating a little harder as he leaned in, “You wanna ditch this place, dollface?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 02, 2019, 02:25:30 PM
Maggie's breath hitched in her throat and she licked her lips, his thumping blood pounding in her ears. She gripped his arm tighter and nodded dumbly, her eyes dark with want. "Please."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 02, 2019, 02:30:11 PM
"I can't say I'm enjoying the noise and bustle," Thomas admitted as he drew closer to her, "But, this...." he leaned in and kissed her gently, "this I enjoy very much," he whispered.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 02, 2019, 02:31:26 PM
Charles watched Maggie dance with the guy, quite nervously. And angrily. If he tried anything on his little sister, he certainly wouldn't be trying to stop a fight anymore. He straightened up when he realized they were leaving, and looked around to see where Peggy and Thomas were. He quickly hurried over.
"Sorry to interrupt, but I think Mags is leaving with that guy," he said, looking over his shoulder.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 02, 2019, 02:52:53 PM
Peggy pulled from Thomas’ lips lovingly and cooed but then was interrupted by Charles’ who was she nearly scolded. She understood outside the club, but every woman in here was latched to her man, why couldn’t she? She then turned her attention to what he pointed out and growled, standing up quickly. She this time took Maggie’s hand, not addressing the man, “We can’t leave. You know it’s not safe.” Nyle pulled Maggie toward him roughly, “You had your chance little lady, now scram. Your sister here wants to have some fun.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 02, 2019, 02:56:37 PM
Maggie stumbled slightly but made no move to get away from Nyle. The thoughts running through her head were simple really, she wanted him in more ways than one. "Listen, I know my brothers are controlling, but don't go doing their dirty work too now. I'll be just fine."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 02, 2019, 04:11:28 PM
Peggy pulled her closer and hissed, just barely showing her fangs, “This is my own work,” she told her, “It’s. Not. Safe. For him.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 03, 2019, 12:27:09 AM
Maggie scowled, But she had no other choice. “Maybe you can catch up with me another time,” she said with a sweet smile. “When I’m more...alone,” she told Nyle.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 03, 2019, 12:29:58 AM
"This might've been a bad idea," Charles said. He rubbed his temple, using his good arm, and then looked around the room.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 03, 2019, 02:27:49 AM
Peggy felt resolved and turned around, glad Maggie didn’t make a big scene. But as soon as her back was turned, Nyle shook his head, “Come on baby, you can’t let these ninnies tell you how to have fun.” He said and nodded towards the back door.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 03, 2019, 04:04:53 AM
Thomas has gotten to his feet, watching peggy and Maggie with apprehension. He knew it was better if peggy handled it than him or Charles; Maggie would never listen to either of them. “And She wonders why we treat her like a child still,” Thomas grumbled with a shake of his head.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 03, 2019, 07:43:45 AM
Maggie bit her lip, unsure, but her decision was made quickly. She could handle herself, everything would be just fine. So she nodded with a small grin and let him lead her away. He was just so bad and she loved it.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 03, 2019, 08:09:32 AM
Nyle led her out the backway and let her go out first before looking back at the others to make sure they were distracted before closing the discreet door and then pushing Maggie towards the alleyway gently, "Look at that. You're a free woman now," he joked and took her hand, "Come on. We can take a taxi to my shack."

Peggy looked at Thomas and shook her head, "I just don't want her causing a scene or going out--" she paused and looked around, "Where did they go?" They would have had to pass them again to go through the main entrance. She furrowed her brow.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 03, 2019, 09:12:04 AM
Thomas hurried over to peggy when he realized Maggie was gone. He felt panic rising up within, “I don’t know, I looked over at Charles for a just second and they were gone when I looked back,” he said frantically. Had the man taken Maggie or had she stupidly slipped away willingly? He knew Maggie could handle herself, but he didn’t want her to hurt anyone
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 03, 2019, 10:19:08 AM
Charles ran over to Thomas and Peggy. "We gotta find her! Or. I do, I guess. None of you should be leaving here."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 03, 2019, 10:45:08 AM
Maggie shivered, feeling a stab of uncertainty, but the alcohol and pure spite urged her on. “My brothers will have a fit,” she told him with a smirk. “How far away is your place?”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 03, 2019, 11:13:55 AM
Peggy looked at Thomas and Charles and then slowly sat down, “Maggie put herself in this situation despite my warning.” She picked up her cigarette off the ash tray and took a drag, “This is her path”

Nyle whistled for a tag and shrugged, “Just a few blocks. Down towards 12th.” He looked at her and then came closer, putting an arm around her waist, “You’re not getting cold feet on me, are ya darling?” The cab pulled up and he headed towards it, opening the door for her.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 03, 2019, 11:33:06 AM
"We can't just sit here and do nothing," Thomas insisted, looking at his brother with wide eyes. He knew Maggie could handle the man she'd run off with, but what if she ran into that hunter? He pushed his hands through his hair in frustration, "Why must she continue to make such stupid choices," he groaned.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 03, 2019, 11:35:16 AM
"I'm sorry, what?" Charles stared at Peggy, feeling his anger bubbling up. "This is her path?! No! No, this is...Jesus Christ, I'll just go find her before they get too far," he said. He turned around and stalked over to the exit.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 03, 2019, 12:26:47 PM
[maggie is just full of bad decisions]

Maggie ran her hand along his jawbone and shook her head. “No cold feet on me,” she said as she lithely slid into the cab. “I ain’t no chicken.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 03, 2019, 04:13:20 PM
Peggy sat still, unwavering. She wasn't going to be controlling of someone else's life. She'd spent too many years in a basement to throw someone else in with her.

Nyle grinned and got into the cab before putting a firm hand on Maggie's thigh, "12th street and step on it," he told the cabbie before turning to Maggie, grinning, "How about a little kiss for good old Nyle then?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 03, 2019, 11:40:30 PM
Maggie wasted no time in complying and grabbed his face with both hands, pulling it down to hers and capturing his lips in her own. She could do this, she could control herself. She had to. The others underestimated her, she had far more self control than they thought.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 04, 2019, 12:32:18 AM
Charles talked to the guy at the door, asking what cab they'd gotten into. The man didn't know, and Charles practically growled in frustration as he turned to look at the cars leaving, trying to see if Maggie was in a single one.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 04, 2019, 04:14:33 AM
Thomas wanted to go after his brother, to help find Maggie, but he stayed with Peggy. He slowly lowered himself back into his chair. “She will be alright...” Thomas said aloud, trying to convince himself.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 04, 2019, 04:20:28 AM
"I can't promise that," Peggy told him and took a long drink from her glass, "But she's not always going to have you looking over her shoulder. She has to learn."

Nyle's heart raced as they kissed, his free hand coming up to hold hers against his face, while his hand on her thigh moved down and slipped under her dress, holding her bare knee, his thumb grazing against her soft skin. He smiled to himself a little as he whisper, "You're so cold darling. We've got to get you inside and warm you right up."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 04, 2019, 04:42:01 AM
Maggie heard the blood pumping through his veins and she could feel herself quickly losing control of herself. He noticed how cold she was and the reality started to set in. She pulled away from his face. "You need to drop me off and go home," she said in a small voice.

Post by: MercyResurrected on April 04, 2019, 05:03:30 AM
“Now now, you told me you weren’t chicken. A little touch on the leg isn’t scaring you off, is it?” The taxi stopped anyway, “Besides, we’re here baby,” he said and reached over her and opened the door, “Out and out my dear.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 04, 2019, 05:17:06 AM
Maggie grimaced slightly but she didn’t have the willpower to resist, so she stepped out of the cab with him. “I’m not chicken,” she defended. “But it’s best for both of us if I don’t come up.” It was obvious this wasn’t what she desired, however, as she dragged her hand along his chest.

Post by: MercyResurrected on April 04, 2019, 05:28:05 AM
“I’m not scared of your brothers. Or that witch with the long hair,” Nyle told her and whispered to her, “Come along now.” He presses his lips to her again before taking her hand from his chest and pulled it along up to his apartment.

Post by: Emma-la on April 04, 2019, 05:37:40 AM
“I’ve never done this before,” she told him as a warning. “It’s quite scandalous.” Having older brothers had certainly limited her opportunities to have illicit affairs with anybody.

Charles went back inside, walking over to Thomas and Peggy. "They're gone. I swear, if anything happens to her with that guy or that hunter goes after her..." he trailed off, angrily shaking his head. "I need a drink," he muttered and walked over to the bar.

“A creature as gorgeous as yourself hasn’t partaken in such a wonderful and intimate act? I promise we can be as slow and passionate as possible,” he told her. Once at the apartment, he opened the door and nudged her forward.

Post by: Emma-la on April 04, 2019, 06:13:51 AM
The two drinks she’d had at the club were beginning to wear off, and with it her confidence. But it was too late to back out, she would have to keep her cool. “How about another drink?” She suggested with a smile.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 04, 2019, 06:28:34 AM
Thomas sighed and nodded in agreement; Maggie had to learn from her mistakes. Charles' return did little to ease Thomas' mind though

“Another drink? Just take a sip of this,” Nyle told her as he enveloped his arms around her and pressed his lips more roughly to hers, stepping slowly and purposefully towards the couch.

She squealed a little, his aggression getting more worrying by the second. Peggy’s words came back to her - it isn’t safe for him. What if she lost control and killed him? She couldn’t handle that, she had to get a grip.

Nyle pulled his lips from hers and sat down on the couch, breathing a little hard, his blood certainly pumping as he began to unbutton his shirt, “Oh Maggie, I’d love to see what treasures you’re hiding under your dress”

Post by: Emma-la on April 04, 2019, 06:47:59 AM
Maggie's eyes went dark, his blood pumping in her ears and she lost all sense, climbing on top of his lap and latching onto his neck, kissing him madly. She was driven by a lust for him mixed with the animalistic urge to drink all of his blood. "You are a treat," she told him with a dangerous grin.

Post by: MercyResurrected on April 04, 2019, 10:16:07 AM
Nyle moaned longingly as she seemed to devour his neck with her kisses and chuckled, "Maggie, you're really something else.

Maggie's fangs were out and she dragged them along his neck, having fun playing with him. But the hunger was too strong and his blood was pumping so loudly. 'I want you," she whispered in his ear, sinking in for her first nibble.

"Damn, Mags, your teeth---" he commented as shivers ran down his spine from the way she grazed his neck. He reached up, fingers caught in the back of her hair, pulling her back a bit so he could kiss her lips, starting to move to push her down onto the couch.

Moaning loudly, Maggie let herself be pushed down on the couch. "Nyle..." she groaned impatiently. "Stop wasting time." She laughed a little as he kissed her. She had to resist, she didn't want this to end just yet.

Nyle laughed at her, "Wasting time? Baby, we're just getting started."

[haha heck yeah]

Through some trick of fate, Maggie managed to almost make it through without completely losing control. She doubted Nyle he had noticed her fangs digging in a couple of times. But when she lost control, she truly lost control and her fangs sank deep into his neck, drinking the blood like a starved woman.

Post by: MercyResurrected on April 04, 2019, 12:40:09 PM
Nyle gasped suddenly and wasn’t sure what was happening. He felt so much pain suddenly in the middle of all his pleasure. He fell over top of her, into her deep thirst, eyes wide, mouth unable to speak. He pushed his hands against her, groaning.

Maggie was quick with sucking him dry, and pushed his dead body onto the floor when she was done with it. She lay on the couch in a daze, naked. When she started to realize exactly what she had done, Maggie started to feel ill instead of the blissful fullness. "Oh my god," she whispered, staring down at him in horror. She grabbed her dress from the floor and haphazrdly put it back on, before she searched the apartment for some sort of telephone. He must have been well-off, because she found one and started to turn the dial to call the bar. She needed help.

Post by: MercyResurrected on April 04, 2019, 01:27:31 PM
The bartender took the call as he wiped down the bar, “Yo. You’ve got Harold. What’s the word?” He said quickly and began to pour another shot for a customer.

Post by: Emma-la on April 04, 2019, 01:32:18 PM
"Harold, it's Maggie. I need to talk to my brother, he's in the bar. Thomas. Dark, curly hair, tall?" Her voice shook slightly as she spoke, trying to keep her composure, all the while staring at the dead body on the floor.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 04, 2019, 02:03:37 PM
Harold looked around and called over to Thomas, “Hey! Juniper! Your sister Mags is calling for you!” He called and held the phone out, “I don’t got all day for these calls”

Post by: kristina-la on April 04, 2019, 02:15:33 PM
Thomas got to his feet and hurried over to the bar, grabbing the phone from the man. He clutched the phone and breathed in harshly before putting the phone to his ear, not saying anything at first. What had Maggie gone and done? He was worried about his sister but also angry, "Maggs…." he finally said, "Where are you? Please tell me you're alright," he said first.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 04, 2019, 02:18:49 PM
Maggie choked back a sob and nodded. But then she realized Thomas couldn't see that so she spoke in a shaky voice. "Tommy, I'm ok, I'm not hurt," she assured him. "But I need your help. I've done a bad thing. I don't know what to do."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 04, 2019, 02:24:34 PM
Thomas swallowed hard, his jaw clenched in frustration. He cast a quickly glance over at Peggy, not sure how to handle the present predicament. He wanted to rush in and bail his little sister out but there was also a part of him that wanted her to figure it out on her own. "What did you do Maggie?" he questioned quietly.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 04, 2019, 02:28:35 PM
He sounded so judgemental. Can't really blame him, she thought. "I...I think I killed somebody," she said in a small voice. "I'm scared."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 04, 2019, 02:37:50 PM
It nearly broke him to hear just how frightened she was, "Maggie, what did you think was going to happen?" he asked her. He groaned and took a seat at the bar, pushing his free hand through his hair as he tried to figure out what to do.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 04, 2019, 02:40:46 PM
"I don't know!" she exclaimed, a little hysterically. "I tried to leave, but I thought I could handle it. I thought I was stronger." She fiddled with the ends of her hair, that same nauseous feeling not going away. "What if I just left? Walk away, leave the body?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 04, 2019, 02:52:15 PM
Thomas just so disappointed in Maggie, not because she lost control but because she's put herself in that position in the first place. How could she be so foolish? So selfish? "No, you can't do that Maggie; it would be bad for all of us," Thomas pointed out. What would happen if someone found the body? They would surely notice the bite marks in the man's throat. "Just...tell me where you are," he said.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 04, 2019, 02:56:52 PM
Maggie regretted even calling. She should have asked for Charles, maybe he wouldn't judge her so harshly. "I'm in an apartment on 12th Avenue," she told him reluctantly. She would have to cover up the body before he arrived, the last thing Maggie wanted was for her brother to see Nyle naked on the floor and know what she'd done.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 04, 2019, 03:04:06 PM
Peggy stood up and looked over at Thomas, worried. What had happened? Why was he so nervous?
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 04, 2019, 03:07:34 PM
Thomas sighed, "alright Maggs, we'll be there shortly," he assured her, then after a long pause, "I'm sorry to sound so unsympathic Maggie. I'm just...frustrated. You constantly make these poor choices and then run back to us to bail you out; one day Charles and I won't be there to fix your mistakes," he said, glancing again at Peggy.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 04, 2019, 03:10:34 PM
Charles looked over and saw Thomas on the phone. He frowned and made his way over to his seat at the bar, a frown etched onto his face. "Is that Maggie?" He asked, looking over Thomas' expression.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 04, 2019, 03:12:07 PM
His words hurt, likely because of how true they were. It took her a second to come up with any kind of response for him. “Well I’m sorry to be such a burden,” she said a little sourly. “I never wanted this life. I just wanted to be a normal girl with a normal life.” Scared of his response, she hung up with phone a little aggressively and got to work pulling Nyle’s pants back onto him.

Post by: kristina-la on April 04, 2019, 03:16:32 PM
Thomas heard the line go dead as Maggie hung up, he put the phone down slowly and glanced at Charles with eyes glistening. Her words hurt. Because of him, Maggie would never have the normal life she craved. "Come on Charlie, our sister needs us," he said, not elaborating more as he did not want to alarm the bar's patrons. He got up and led the way back to Peggy

Her brothers words swimming through her cloudy brain, Maggie decided to do her best to clean up her own mess. Perhaps if she got it all fixed before they arrived it would be better. She set to work cleaning herself up from all the blood before she turned to work on the floor. She grabbed a washcloth with some water and furiously started to scrub the floor, refusing to let herself cry.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 04, 2019, 03:28:00 PM
"What happened?" Charles asked, following after Thomas. "Wait, just tell me on the way. I'll get us a cab," he said, leaving Thomas with Peggy to go out front and hail one.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 04, 2019, 04:33:46 PM
Peggy looked at Thomas worried, but part of her already knew. She'd felt it was going to happen. She'd warned Maggie, tried to stop her. She followed Charles and Thomas outside, "She killed him, didn't she?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: kristina-la on April 04, 2019, 04:41:50 PM
Thomas simply nodded in response, trying desperately to hold himself together. Maggie’s last words to him over the phone continued to ring through his mind. “I...I just hope that she learns from this,” Thomas said when they reached the street where Charles was waiting for a cab

Post by: Emma-la on April 05, 2019, 12:29:04 AM
After a long while of trying desperately to scrub the floor, it still didn’t feel clean enough. The guilt was eating Maggie alive and she broke down crying, unable to do anything more.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 05, 2019, 12:40:33 AM
"I've got one," Charles said and opened up the door of the cab for Thomas and Peggy to slide into before he got in as well. "Where is she?" he asked Thomas.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 05, 2019, 01:14:13 AM
Peggy was quiet now. She felt if she made any comment, Charles would surely have something to save about it.

“She said an apartment on 12th,” Thomas replied to Charles.

“I know how to fix this,” Peggy said softly, “We just have to cut the throat to make sure it looks like a murder and not a bite.” She then looked at Thomas, “You shouldn’t go inside.”

Post by: MercyResurrected on April 05, 2019, 02:44:01 AM
Peggy cleared her throat, “Yes,” she said quietly. She took a shaky breath, “In the beginning he was careful for my sake because I was afraid of him being caught....” she looked down at her hands, “It was when he got sloppy and stopped caring if the humans knew he was killing them. That’s why I started to pull away”

Maggie could hear their voices outside the door. Not wanting them to see her in such a state, she hurriedly wiped her eyes and attempted to pull herself together. She looked at the floor and although it was mostly clean now, she felt compelled to keep cleaning it. It would never be clean from the horror she had caused.

Post by: MercyResurrected on April 05, 2019, 06:15:47 AM
Peggy knocked on the door, but she knew from the smell she had the right room. She opened it and looked at the scene in front of her and took a deep breath, “Oh Margaret...” she said quietly and then came over and just took the crying girl in her arms.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 05, 2019, 06:56:30 AM
Charles shot his brother a glare, but then followed Peggy into the apartment. His eyes widened when he saw the body, and he looked at Maggie with a worried expression. "Mags, don't...don't worry, we'll take care of this."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 05, 2019, 02:32:01 PM
Maggie couldn’t help but notice the absense of Thomas in the room. She let herself be comforted by Peggy and Charles only briefly, her eyes fixed on the body in the room the entire time. “I need to fix this myself,” she said in a raw voice. “I made the mess, it’s my job to fix it.”
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: MercyResurrected on April 05, 2019, 02:34:53 PM
Peggy stepped back and looked at the body and then nodded at Maggie. "Find a knife. You--you have to make the bite marks look like cuts. It'll make it look less like a monster and more like just a murder."
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 05, 2019, 02:37:32 PM
She whimpered slightly but went to find a knife in the kitchen. She desperately did not want to do this, but Thomas’ words kept echoing in her head. She approached Nyle’s body and crouched down, grimacing. She held the knife to his neck but couldn’t bring herself to make the cut.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 05, 2019, 02:38:47 PM
"Here, Mags," Charles crouched beside her and reached for the knife to do it for her.

Post by: Emma-la on April 05, 2019, 02:41:20 PM
Maggie held the knife firmly, eyes welling up with tears again. "I can't let you do it, Charlie," she said softly. "This is my responsibility. I can't keep relying on you to clean up my messes."

Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 05, 2019, 02:56:31 PM

Post by: Emma-la on April 05, 2019, 02:58:29 PM
She stared hard at the body, trying to pull herself together. "I don't deserve you Charlie." She cut the throat, choking back a cry as she did it. Peggy was right, there was no more blood to be spilled, but it still felt so wrong. When she had killed him she hadn't been in her right mind. Now she was. This was inhumane.

Post by: MercyResurrected on April 05, 2019, 03:06:38 PM
"I shouldn't have let you leave, but I didn't want to cause a scene and possibly lose you your job," Peggy told Maggie as she started to straighten up some things on the couch and the nearby coffee table. She looked around and raised an eyebrow. Odd, it didn't seemed like Maggie made it far into the apartment with the man, but they'd been here a while before she'd killed him. She turned back to Maggie, "Did you come here straight from the bar? No one would recognize you?"
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: |ĸιrα| on April 05, 2019, 03:12:59 PM

Post by: Emma-la on April 05, 2019, 03:17:14 PM
Maggie sat back and shook her head. "We didn't stop anywhere else," she confirmed. "I don't think anybody would recognize me." She stood and threw the knife on the ground. She still couldn't get her mind off her brother. Why hadn't Thomas come inside? "Did something happen to Thomas?" she asked, wondering if he was really so angry that he refused to step foot inside.

Post by: MercyResurrected on April 05, 2019, 03:21:34 PM
"No, no, I just told him it would be more wise for him to wait in the hall since there's a strong blood smell in here and he's still young and Charles is here," Peggy said as she looked at Maggie, "Are you alright? I mean-- other than the death part of this." Something was off, but she couldn't put her finger on it.
Title: Re: The Great Fangsby
Post by: Emma-la on April 05, 2019, 03:52:04 PM

Thomas winced at his sister's response; he certainly felt like they needed to talk but he would wait until she was ready. Thomas sighed and followed them out of the building, "I think that's probably best," he agreed.

Post by: Emma-la on April 06, 2019, 03:21:51 PM
Maggie nodded in response. She didn’t particularly want to be alone with Thomas and Peggy. Even if Peggy had felt pity for her, she was with Thomas and would probably take his side if an argument broke out. She didn’t say anything though as they walked, tugging uselessly at the hem of her dress.

Maggie nodded stiffly. “Am I...” She didn’t know if she had the guts to finish the question. “Do you think I’m...immature?” She finished lamely. It wasn’t what she had meant to ask but she wasn’t sure she wanted to know if he truly saw her as a burden.

Charles raised his eyebrows and then looked ahead, thinking about the question. "Well, sure, you're my little sister. Plus, you might be immortal now or what-have-you, but you're still young and learning. So yeah, you're immature but not...in a bad way. At least all the time."

Peggy turned into the hotel and went to the front desk, booking two rooms for the night and taking the keys. She took one set for herself and then brought one to Thomas, "For you and Charles." she said.

Peggy stared at where Maggie had been and anger stirred in her chest. They would still be at the club if it wasn’t for Maggie’s lust.
