The Tribunal of Marius de Romanus, Pt. 1

The Tribunal of Marius de Romanus, Pt. 1

I knew the time had come. Monday is the Tribunal.  David and Maharet had done all they could do, at least I wouldn’t be put down like a lame dog. But I would be away from my family, my Lydia. That hurt me more than anything else. I know that as much as she sometimes gets […]

An Interesting Opportunity

An Interesting Opportunity

What is surely to be an interesting opportunity quickens my resolve to continue my work. Piper Vale walked back into our lives. But no this wasn’t the same Piper I used to know.  This was Piper the Vampire.  Vampirism having stripped her of her witchery, she was now accustomed to her new reality, but was […]

An Honest Conversation

An Honest Conversation

Cherry walked into my office as I was trying to navigate the expedition of the application for the Razele Bloodline to be protected under House Romanus. She had something on her mind, “Oh sorry I can see you are busy, I’ll just… I’ll just come back some other time.” She said. I immediately put my […]

A Matter of Urgent Concern

*a letter written to David Talbot from Marius de Romanus* Dearest old friend, I’m afraid there has been an incident that I will need your help to navigate. As you may have heard, we engaged in hostile actions with House Draconis in the heart of London. The fire that was reported to be malfunctioning oil […]

Let’s Keep On Not Talking About It

*at Marius’ office in Romanus Manor* I called Armand to talk about the events that occurred in Paris that had Armand so fumed with anger. Locking him and Va’lis in the gun cellar when Maharet announced they had taken his wife in addition to Carrie had been a wise move on my part, but perhaps my execution of […]

Blood Will Flow, Pt. 7

Blood Will Flow, Pt. 7

I heard that sound and I jumped behind Va’lis to catch him by his neck, I pulled him to me dropping him down to the ground covering him completely with my own weight. Cherry took a split second to turn her rage in the right direction, at Kirk. She flew through the air and using […]

Getting Back What Belongs to Us, Pt. 4

Getting Back What Belongs to Us, Pt. 4

The entire family was walking out of several elevators from the world gate 5 levels beneath them.  They were in the 1st level basement which was turned into meeting rooms and conference centers. Marius called out to Armand, “Armand! Armand! Va’lis! Where are you?” No answer. Lestat went to the other levels that have personal quarters […]

I Await Thee

I Await Thee

I knew Mary would run to Lestat.  I knew it.  And I didn’t mind one bit, Lestat is like the bratty kid in the family who everyone simply adores.  Lestat told me she would be spending a few days in New York, alone.  I respected that, as much as I wanted to run after her,  and just waited.  And […]

For A Man That Fears Little

For A Man That Fears Little

The family, mostly the council members, were gathered around all involved in the heated conversations around me, but my thoughts lingered to Mary.  My dear Mary who is so young.  The Draconians were a real threat, and unlike Earth where our anonymity keeps us from all out open war, Sosaria’s knowledge of our existence is going […]

A Difficult Lesson

A Difficult Lesson

I knew that taking Mary through her journey of exploring her gifts wouldn’t be peaches and cream.  No.  It would be tough, sometimes unbearable, not just for her but for me as her maker. But I am determined to make her into a better, well-rounded, powerful vampire.  Afterall, she was created with my blood… the blood […]
