Writing Year in Review

What a year that was...

2014 saw the final part of my EPIC nine-book series reaching the shelves, and there was much rejoicing. It was a bit of a scramble to get it written in time, as it generally is, but this book achieved everything I wanted it to achieve, and so I remain immensely proud of it. The ninth book, and the events that transpire within it, had been a secret I'd been keeping for seven years, and it was such a relief to get it out there. Sure, I didn't tie up every last plot thread — in some cases I just ran out of time, in others I decided to be mean and simply not resolve stuff — but it was a fitting send-off, I think.

The publication saw another astonishing Tom Percival cover, plus a very limited black edition which, as it turned out, was an extraordinarily clever bit of marketing by yours truly. It meant that the excitement that first morning was ELECTRIC as everyone rushed to search through each shop. That wasn't my original intent — I just wanted a cool black book — but to follow the tweets that morning as each copy got snapped up... that was awesome.

The reaction to the book was exactly what I wanted, also. True, there was some confusion over the chapters that ended mid-sentence, but all in all, readers understood what I was doing. And then to catch you all out right at the end....

... glorious...

The Dying of the Light got me back touring, of course, and we fit in the Requiem Ball and the Theatre of Shadows, and I once again visited New Zealand and Australia and met loads of enthusiastic readers. If ever my ego was in need of a boost...

And then I got home, and got to work on the NEW book.

(Okay. Sil..Chi needs her. Sil2 can continue with Beth for a while.)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Hey Zaf.)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(Where did we get to with the roleplay?)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*sits between the cots, head in hands*
It'll be okay. You'll be okay.

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

Chi: *doesn't want to leave his side*
*Smiles at memories, her, blake and the twins at the lake playing*
That can never happen again... *keeps crying*
*shakes her head*
No...no it can happen again...
*Laughs*
*Has completely lost her mind*
We'll go to the beach again, won't we? *kisses his dead lips*

(I'm actually close to crying right now, this is way too sad...)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(SilTC had just said 'Good.' To being told she wasn't overstepping the welcome.)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Oh my..Chi has gone insane.)


*gets back up, pacing again*
She can do this. Be an only mother...I-if she has people to help her...your mummy, she'll come back..she'll help you.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Liliana: You two are always welcome here. Provided you do not want to kill me, that is.

Bethany: ... Thank you?

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

Here.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: We probably won't want to kill you. At least not unless something goes remarkably wrong.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Hey Kas.)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Liliana: Wrong? Such as?

Run. If you stay long enough to know my name, you'll probably die a tragic death. said...

I'm excited to see what will happen with the new book.

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

*sits down and curls up* -Zaf

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: *shrugs* you kill one of us first.

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(Hey.)

*hugs Zaffy*

Happy New Year's Eve, guys!

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

Chi: *Takes his hand and stands up*
Let's go back to the twins now, Blakey... They'll be wanting their mummy and daddy back...
*Starts climbing the stairs*
*Looks back at Blake, he's just turned around, his head leaving a blood trail*
Blakey...why don't you stand up? come on...we need to go back to the twins now...
*He doesn't move or say anything*
Baby...?
*Starts crying again*
Blakey...*falls to her knees, hugging the corpse*

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

Run?

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*sits down again, lookinh first at Lira then at Lucas*
*quietly*
At least you don't understand yet..so young..but is that a blessing or a curse..

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

Chi: *Sits on the ground, next to Blake's body*
*There is blood all over her dress*
*Puts Blake's head on her lap, holding it close*
Help...me...S-somebody help...- *through tears and gasps*
HELP! *breaks down again*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*cant hear*
*she's too far away*
Shes taking so long..but she needs to grieve..

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: Or get Minerve to kidnap us.

Liliana: I... I'm sorry. I didn't know... Minerve will be here in a matter of minutes...

Bethany: *reaches for her spear*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

What?!
*reaches for the sword, groaning when she remembers she left it in that things body*
Idiot

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

(So much for that sistersense)

Chi: No one's coming Blakey... I guess it'll just be me and you for eternity...*creates an ice dagger* We could be matching...perfectly together...even in death...*tears cover her cheeks* We said forever and always...remember...? *plunges the ice dagger into her head*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(AHHH THATS NOT GOOD!)


*frowns as the link from Chi's blood cuts out*
*pales*
NO!
*jumps up, calling Chi*

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

(Auntie Sil will look after the twins)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Liliana: I'm joking! Joking. I swear, I'm joking. *laughs* You're too much fun to give to Minerve.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Auntie Sil doesn't know a damn thing about babies! And sister Jaimie better not be getting deserted..)


*no answer*
Craps craps crap
*has no idea where the cave IS*
*looks At the twins*
Nononononononononononononono!

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*glares*
Hmph.

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

*Chi and Blake lay on the ground of the cave, hand and hand in a pool of blood*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Sil: Flies! Flies! Dropping like flies!
Swords and daggers and wolves and knives!
Flies! Flies! Dropping like flies!
People taking people lives!
Flies! Flies! Dropping like flies!
They cant be dead STOP WITH THESE LIES!
Flies! Flies! Dropping like flies!
Swarm forth bees of death from hives!)

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

Xan: *appears too late at Chi's call* Chi?... Blake?...
*kneels beside Chi's body, presses his hand to her cheek* Still warm.. Maybe?.. *holds himself together*

Chione! *picks the ice dagger out of her* You're not going on my watch! *creates a ball of flame and plunges it into her chest* *collapses as he becomes weak from the spell* Heal Chi... Heal...

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*drops to her haunches, covering her head*
Nononononononononononononononono

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: ... That was cruel.

Liliana: I hardly claim to be nice.

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

Chi: *Eyes flutter open* N-no! h-heal...him...

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*curls up tight in a corner, hyperventilating*


Sil2: *hugs Beth, shooting a glare Lil's way*

A ghostly figure said...

*Watches silently from the edges of the room, a sad look on its transparent face*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(*wonders which room said ghostly figure is in*)

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

Xan: Magic.. I don't have the strength.. B- but you're okay. *smiles slightly* Get Sil... *passes out*

Itherael: *appears beside Xanadu in a flash of light* *looks down a Chione and places a hand on her shoulder* *looks down at Blake's body*

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

Chi: XAN YOU IDIOT! *screams and looks down at Blake* Y-you...have to heal him...*falls over, is dizzy from blood loss*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*struggles to get her breathing under control, fighting the lump in her throat*
*calmes down slightly, shaking, tracing the blood link that's suddenly reappeared*

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: *hugs her back*

Liliana: When one is not in bed, one must find other ways to amuse oneself.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2 : One should stop referring to ones self as one for it makes one sound stuck up.

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

Itherael: He can not be healed Mrs Chione. Blake has been gone too long and his soul is no longer in his body... *looks down at her, the feeling of sadness surrounds then* I'm sorry.

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

Chi: *sits in Silence* I can't live without him...*Looks up at him* You need to kill me.

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

*Zanida stands just watching, her hands shaking. She had discovered a lot in the past few days, and she wasn't ready to even talk about it.*

Zanida: Thor? Anyone?

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*breathes and lifts the twins gently, curling up on Chi's bed and drawing them close*

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Liliana: Stuck up? Stuck up what?

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: stuck up. As in vain and self serv- oh wait that is you in general.
*smirks*

A ghostly figure said...

*Glides gently to Chione, and kneels in front of her. It cups her face gently, its hand passing through her skin. A single word emanates from its form*

No.

*Vanishes, a single transparent tear running down his cheek*

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

Itherael: That I can not do. You must live. It is not your fate to die at this moment in time. You must take care of your children, they need you.
*takes her hand and pulls her up* You must go to your house, your children and Silente are there.
*places a hand on her shoulder* He will have a funeral. I assure you.

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Zanida: Blake Soul.....*eyes widen*

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Liliana: Of course. There is no fun in being all humble.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: *raises an eyebrow* Maybe.

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

Chi: *Shakes Itherael off forcefully* Don't touch me! Silente can take care of the twins. They don't need me...they need us both. What use will I be?! I can't be without him...I-I can't... *screams again and icicles come out from her body, all over the cave but somehow avoiding Blake's body*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*looks at the vodka and the ice cream*
*gently gets up, careful not to wake the youngsters*
*hides the vodka in a portal and starts drinking the ice cream with a spoon*

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: I could never be vain... Modesty is in my nature.

Liliana: And that is your loss.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(I will be back soon.)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Okay.)

Sil2m Vanity leads to errors..

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

Itherael: *the icicles glance off his armour* You are their mother! *his voice becomes deeper and he sticks his spear into the ground* They need you now more than ever. Losing one parent is enough. You will return home and see to your children.

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

Chi: I won't! you can't make me!
I'm not leaving my husband *continues crying* I won't leave him...

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(Hello, Xan.

*glances at Jai*

*has to leave*

*will be on later until very late in the morning*)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*watches the twins sleeping*
*pulls a blanket over them both*

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

((*remembers that fight with Blake that he never got to finish*

*remembers that date with Sil that never finished either*

...))

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(@Kas you can finish the date one day..)

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

(You can't finish the fight with Blake though.)

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

(Hello Tanya :) )

Itherael: Then I'm sorry I leave you no choice. *places his hands on her head and makes her pass out*
*lifts both Chi and Blake, disappearing and then reappearing next to Silente, in Chi's house*
Silente, you must look after Chi *places her down on the bed beside Sil* Just say my name and I will appear back with Blake for his funeral.
*disappears again with Blake*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*jumps, confused as to the appearance and disappearance*
*looks at Chi in her blood dress*
Oh Chi..
*sighs and straightens her spine*
Come on.
*picks Chi up, carrying her to the bath room*
*moves all the razors away*

Cordelia and Sebastian, Tsubaki and Chione Asahina (Gemma) said...

*Lays limp in Sil's arms*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*carrys her and gently lays her in the bath*
Sorry about this..
*carefully strips away the bloodied clothes and fills the sink with warm soapy water*
*grabs a sponge*
Again...Sorry...
*awkwardly starts cleaning the blood away from her skin, trying not to look too much, blushing rather a lot*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(*cough*notawkwardatall*cough*)

Chione Soul said...

(Well Sil, there isn't much I can do. I'm knocked out...)

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

(*Chi is now un-knocked out by Itherael* :P)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Stop being knocked out. *nods wisely*)


*keeps awkwardly cleaning her, stripping away the remainder of her clothes*
*sponges her completely then grabs a jug*
*fills the jug and supports her neck and head, running the water through her hair*
*washes and conditions the hair then scrubs under her nails to get the blood out*
*roots around for a towel*

Chione Soul said...

Chi: *Wakes up naked and in water*
*Looks around and panics*
*Sees Sil, sees all the blood gone, sees she's in her house*
Where's Blake?! Where did he take him?! *stands up and falls out of the bath, a murderous look in her eyes*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Chi!
*catches her quickly with a towel*
*steadied her to her feet, wrapping the towel around her*
Don't worry...he's safe..

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Sorry brother was talking to me.)

Chione Soul said...

Chi: No! I need to see Blakey! *Screams, waking up the twins and tries to get out of Silente's grasp*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*winces as the twins wake up and tightens her hold*
Chi calm down! I promise you Blake is safe but you need to calm down please!

Chione Soul said...

Chi: Get the hell off of me! Where is he Silente?! *Kicks her to the other side of the bathroom and makes a long black dress appear over her* Where. Is. He?

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Oof
*winces as she hits the wall, getting up, rubbing her head*
Nice kick..and dress..he's safe Chi. Trust me Chi..

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(*gonna presume your WiFi died...?)

Chione Soul said...

(No...Just...)

Chi: *Lifts off the ground slightly*
*Rushes towards her and grabs her throat*
*Roars*
WHERE IS HE?!

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(*cuddles* okay.)


*chokes, scrabbling at her fingers*
Chi...

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(I am back.)

Liliana: How so?

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Welcome back.)

Sil2: by over estimating your ability to do something.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Liliana: Or it can be an asset, having confidence in yourself.

Bethany: I trust myself to do as well as I can... I just don't really think highly of myself.

Chione Soul said...

Chi: *Her eyes turn Black*
Yes, sister?

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: I suppose it depends on how you look at it..

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*starts going red, gasping, trying desperately to get Chi's fingers off without hurting her*
Please..

Chione Soul said...

Chi: *Her voice changes and Chi allows Hecate to take her over*
Hecate: Hello, Silente. It's been a while since I've been allowed to play. *Cuts into her throat slightly*
Now tell me where Blake is.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*coughs, choking, starting to go purple, eyes popping and slightly bloodshot turning*
St....p...

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Liliana: It does indeed.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: Do you think there'll be any attacks today?

Chione Soul said...

H - *Takes her hand away*
Chi - Fine, i'll find him myself. Or destroy the world trying to.
*Turns into a shadow and slinks out of the window*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Chi!
*tries to grab her*
The angel took him!

Chione Soul said...

Chi: *Turns to her as she's going out* Thanks, sis. Look after the little devils for me. *vanishes*

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Liliana: Possibly. Minerve will not give up easily.

Bethany: I hope she just leaves us alone...

(I will be back soon.)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Chi!
*stares, panting*
No..
*scrambles to her feet, looking around*
Chi! Come back!
*quietly*
I need you..

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Okay Soph.)

Sil2: it'd be nice.

Chione Soul said...

*Starts to hunt for Ithereal*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*stands up and silently walks into the bedroom*
*curls up between the twins, cuddling them*
Shh...I-it's okay...she'll come back...she wouldn't leave you..

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*sits up, cradling them*
I mean...she might leave me...but not you..ever..

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

And...she does love you...her and d-daddy..
*chokes up slightly*
But daddy's gone...a-and mummy...needs some time to think...

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

(Sorry I've disappeared, watching Star Wars)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

*swallows, if she could cry, she would be*
And...and so I-I'm gonna have to...try look after you..
*laughs and shakes her head*
Well...I'll try not to let you die...I-I have some bad people...after me...

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Hey Adam)

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

I have had only two glasses of champagne and I'm getting the giggles and I can't wipe a small smile from my face and I love you, Jai.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(O_O)

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Oh....*vanishes* -Zaf

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

Zafira why are you vanishing?

Jai why are your eyes in brackets?

I feel weird.

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

Am I being embarrassing? To myself? Am I embarrassing myself?

I'm sorry.

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

I am such a bitch. How do you guys even put up with me?

Ugh never mind...

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Sorry. Random Chinese food appeared so I ate it..)

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

Food is good.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Food is good. Food brought by parents who weren't expected back until TOMORROW is even better :)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(I am back.)

Bethany: It definitely would...

Liliana: I do not mind either way.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: * rolls eyes*
Course you don't Lil..

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

Nothing....-Zaf

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(*huggles Zaffy*)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Liliana: Entertainment is entertainment.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: Mmm. Maybe. Althought if you ask me, some are better than other.

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(*also hugs Zaffy*)

Chione Soul said...

(I have my tablet charged for once so... *waves*)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(*cuddles Gem Gem*)

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(Hello, Gem!

Vampires ooh...)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(*wonders where Tanya's picture went..*)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Liliana: Of course. That is very, very true. I may go and make myself some breakfast.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: Okay. Go ahead. Beth are you wanting breakfast?

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(Everything is so blurry, but ok, I'll try putting a picture here.)

Chione Soul said...

(*sighs* I don't know what to do now that he's gone to be honest... I've gone back into depression...)

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(*editing*)

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(Gem, try finding help for depression.)

Loki Laufeyson- King of Asgard and Protector of the Nine Realms said...

*huggles* -Zaf

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(@GemGem don't be depressed..
I realise its not as easy as that. But..I'm here for you..Okay?)

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(*hugs Zaffy tiredly*)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: I'm fine, I think. Do you want breakfast?

Liliana: *nods and walks out of the bedroom, going downstairs*

Chione Soul said...

(No one is ever here for me...not really...I'm always alone which is one reason why I'm depressed.

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

Well, I'm always alone. We don't have to be alone.

Chione Soul said...

(I have Adam but he lives so far away...)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(I try to be here for you..)


I'm fine.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: *smiles and snuggles against her* Liliana is here so... we could go back to bed?

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

(Oi, I'm not that far away. I can be there within the hour.)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sure.
*smiles and pulls her over to the bed*

Chione Soul said...

(You are that far away...and it costs too much to do every week)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(Time skip?)

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(I've no idea how far away I am physically.

:/)

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

(That's why we came up with the every second week, save up money.)

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Time skip.)

Jedi-TARDIS-Chick101 said...

Thanks so much for a great year Derek!!! Incredible books, fantastic events, AWESOME tours (Aussie Aussie Aussie!). Thank you, you're amazing.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: *smiles, cuddling into her*

Chione Soul said...

Chi: *lurks in the shadows of the forest, watching for the angel who stole her beloved husband from her*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: *holds her close*

(Soph do you mind if I try merge Sil with Sil2? Bring the story lines together?)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(How would that work?)

Bethany: *kisses her passionately* Thank you...

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Sil2 would go off. Then that'd like with Sil going to Chi's house? And then Sil would call Beth?)

Sil2: *kisses her passionately back* you're welcome.

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

Itherael: *appears back near Chi's house, holding Blake* *Places him down on the ground* *waits for the inevitable*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

We can be alone together or together together.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(I would rather keep them separated until an opportunity arises which will not discredit the roleplay, if that is acceptable.)

Bethany: I much prefer it with just us two...

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(Okay.)

Sil2: *smiles*
So do I...But if someone doesn't please Lil then she might try find another pet..I have to protect my friends..

Chione Soul said...

Chi: *sees Ithereal*
*appears out of a shadow behind him* what are you doing with my husband?

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

* curls around the twins, trying to sleep, to pretend she doesn't feel like her heart was put in a mortar and pestle*
*quietly singing, half to the sleeping duo, half to nothing*

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

Itherael: *faces Chione* I said I would appear if you are ready to burry you're husband. So, are you ready to burry him?

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

(Your*)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: ... So you're just doing these things with her to stop her from getting another pet? How about talking to her?

Adrasdos Dark said...

I don't know you, but I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me and always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
The moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black

Chione Soul said...

Chi: I'm not going to bury him. *sends hundreds of shadows towards the angel*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

(*hugs Adra if she wishes to be hugged, if not then acknowledges her existence*)


Sil2: *shakes head*
It's fine.

*goes to read the post*
*poofs*

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: But you could have time with me regardless... We should probably tell her... And make sure that she won't hurt anyone...

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: *nuzzles her neck*
Only if you want to.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: And now I don't know what you want... Do you want to stop or not?

Xanadu Erebus - Prime Evil, Itherael - Grand Archangel, Talia Rose, Harrison said...

Itherael: *puts out his hand, his spear falling from the sky, deflecting the shadows* You will not burry him? Is that not what he deserves? *stands with his spear in hand, wings stood stretched*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: I want whatever you want Beth..

Adrasdos Dark said...

I used to pray to recover you.
Ach, du.
I was ten when they buried you.
At twenty I tried to die
And get back, back, back to you.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: I think I'd like to stop... If that's alright... It's a little too much for me...

Kara said...

Happy New Year to Derek and to all you Skuttlebugs. And yes, it was a fitting send-off.

Bring on the new book.

Once In A Blue Moon said...

*stumbles into Blogland, holding onto bite and stab wounds. Blood gushing and dripping all over the place.
Looks confused, out of breath and covered in bruises. Doesn't know where he is.*

HELP!!! HELP ME PLEASE!!!

*trips over a stone and hits the ground hard causing a wound to open up, blood oozing again, crying out in agony.*

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: *smiles* that's fine Beth.
*kisses her gently*
Anything for you.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

MrBBWolf: *trips over blue*
Ahh! Oh hello.
*corrects his top hat*

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: *kisses her back* *sighs* I don't know... Please tell me what you want... Not what I want... What you actually want.

Adrasdos Dark said...

...

Goodbye.

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: I dont mind. I want you, Beth.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(Goodbye Adrasdos.)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: Are your two reasons for wanting to involve Liliana to stop her making someone else her pet and because you like spending time with me?

Silente Tempest - Self Declared Vampire Queen said...

Sil2: maybe


(Happy New Year.)
