QuotesEdit

Nick tensed upon seeing a clear set of fang marks on the neck. Involuntarily he brushed his hand over his lips. "Sloppy," he remarked and earned a hard stare from Natalie.

"Sloppy?"

"I mean, who would be so foolish and leave a kill out in the open without as much as concealing the marks?


CommentsEdit

  • "Oh, thank you so very much! This is even better than what I had envisioned when creating the prompt! LaCroix can certainly turn every situation to his advantage, don't you think? "Ulterior motives," indeed! I would have loved to have seen LaCroix's syllabus! / The concept of Janette's charm school doubling as a blood source is brilliant. / [...] You have a gift for writing in Nick's and LaCroix's voices. And, it was refreshing to watch Nick being manipulated gently into drinking human blood. For once, LaCroix's actions seemed to lack nefarious intent. When Nick acquiesces, it gives LaCroix the opportunity to acknowledge the value of Nick's police work, almost as a quid pro quo." — excerpted from comment by dlyt on AO3
    • "I was wrecking my brain why Lacroix and Nick would end up in a situation that necessitates a charm school. But once I had the time frame, it all came together." — excerpted from reply by PJ1228 on AO3
