Well, you get an extra dose of me this week, since it's a US holiday and I had some time to spare to help out with the blog this morning. Speaking of, thank you to any and every veteran who has ever served to protect the freedom and security of their country! And, without further ado... please enjoy Aditus' review of @comicfan's story, A Vampire to the Rescue! 

 

A Vampire to the Rescue

Halloween is over, and all the creepy folk are back behind the veil for one year with the help of fireworks and Jack-o’-lanterns. Except for one vampire. Him we still want around because he is a hero.
Terry is out to get some food when he overhears a heated conversation between two men in a darkened street. Just when he is about to turn away, he hears something that reminds him of how cruel humanity can be to a child. How cruel it has been to him. This is why there is no way Terry will allow what is about to happen.

While he is still considering what to do the argument turns into a fight, and one of the men kills the other. When the survivor pulls a frightened kid out of the trunk of a car, Terry sees his suspicions confirmed. He can’t wait any longer to intervene. An epic fight enfolds, and Terry finds out he’s battling an old enemy.

In the end, Terry is still hungry, but the kid has the perfect idea of how they could change that.

The story has some nice twists and surprises I really liked. There might be some parts where I want to know even more, but that’s because I’m greedy. And now I have that damn song in my head: Oh..someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah.

      A couple of weeks ago someone mentioned the s*** word. And then I heard there fell s*** at some places. I think it's safe now to think of the Ch********* word, especially together with a story.
      A month from today, I will post the first chapter of my new/ old Ch**story Baby, it's Cold Outside.
      Sneak peek:
      I was on the subway, the hood of my jacket still drawn over my head against the nasty weather, mentally going through the list for the big dinner I had planned, when I heard Peter's distinctive laughter. I would have recognized it anywhere, these deep rumbling chortles that always made me feel warm inside. Surprised, I looked back over my shoulder and saw him talking animatedly to a woman I didn't know. It was too early for him to be on this train. Then I smiled. He wanted to surprise me and be home early before he had to go on that business trip tomorrow.
      I gathered the cloth bags filled with groceries from the floor between my feet, ready to join them, when Peter lifted his hand, stroked the woman's hair, and leaned in for a kiss.

      Book 1 The Holly and the Ivy; Book 2 Caesura
       
      Landyn paced around the empty space in front of the gate, compulsively pulling at his short ponytail every few steps.
      Except for a young Asian couple, Simon, and him, the people waiting for passengers from flight AA1034 were long gone.
      Impatiently he turned to his mate, who tried to get a glimpse through the tinted glass wall dividing the arrival area from the security section behind. "Do you see him yet?"
      "No," Simon grumbled. "Maybe he missed the plane. Everyone from that damned plane must have gotten out by now, including the pilot, the copilot, and the very last tardy member of his crew. Where is he?" He shoved his hands in the pockets of his black canvas shorts and walked over to his lover.
      Landyn stared at the blinking lights appearing next to the flight numbers on the information board. "Are you sure this is the right flight? Did you cross-check the dates? You know how he is with numbers sometimes."
      Simon rolled his eyes. "Of course. I checked the dates as well as the passenger list."
      "How did you get your hands on the… Never mind, there he is!" Landyn gestured in the direction of the escalators, relief clearly visible on his face.
      Together they watched Noël carefully lead a petite older Japanese lady towards the security gate; one of her hands firmly rested in the crook of his left arm. With his other hand, he pulled a huge yellow suitcase with a duffle bag piled on top of it behind them. Seeing he also carried an apparently heavy backpack on his shoulders, Landyn murmured, “It looks like he turned into a shopaholic in Japan.”
      “It’s probably all the cool stuff he couldn’t stop talking about.”
      The sliding doors opened and Noël squinted, brows wrinkled in concentration, as he looked around. When his gaze fell on his friends, he smiled briefly but then turned to his charge and talked to her quietly while patting her arm. The couple that had been waiting with them rushed over as soon as the doors swished open. Noël talked briefly to them and then took the old lady's fragile hand, which was still holding on to him, and placed it on the young woman's arm. He then gave the handle of the big suitcase over to the man after he lifted the duffle bag from it. They spoke again quietly and the woman bowed several times before she gave Noël two long, narrow, padded bags, which he immediately slung over his shoulder. This time Noël bowed before he finally turned around and sought out his friends, who had been watching all of this curiously from a polite distance.
       
       
       
      I hope this makes  you curious and looking forward to book three. I plan to post the first chapter in January. Thoughts?

      Happy Birthday Wayne!

      Bill's Christmas Gift - comicfan
       
      This made me smile and cry at the same time.
       
      It was in part a wonderful story of how Bill finds he has more friends and family than he thought he had.
       
      The other part that made it sad for me was not only was the love of his life dead, but Jonny didn't get the chance to meet his nephew and the other members of his family that still cared.
       
      A wonderfully written piece, from one of my favourite authors.
       
      Boxed In: A Christmas Story - Headstall
       
      Loved it!
       
      Clint was actually very sweet in his own way, even when he wasn't talking.
       
      Daddy Issues - Sasha Distan
       
      An interesting take on the Egyptian Gods.
       
      Faeries Anonymous - Valkyrie
       
      I want more!
       
      I loved it, but I wanted to know more about all the characters. I think Val's got the beginning of a great series here.
       
      Family Matters - Sasha Distan
       
      Nice short story.
       
      I liked the way it jumped between the past and the present.
       
      Although Jamie and Blaine are going to find their love life seriously dented once there's a baby around.
       
      Finding Refuge - Headstall
       
      A sweet story.
       
      I wanted to get hold of the father and Cletus.
       
      The father to give him a taste of the 'medicine' he gave his son.
       
      And Cletus to shake some sense into him. He should have realized what he had before it was too late.
       
      Maelstrom - Valkyrie
       
      This story was thought provoking.
       
      My first reaction to Val's question was NO! Once a drunk abuser, always a drunk abuser.
       
      BUT! That was a knee jerk reaction and I decided to sleep on it.
       
      I thought about people I knew where something had happened to chance their attitudes/behavior. I thought about myself and how my attitude/behaviour had changed over the years depending on what happened to me.
       
      So, do I think people can change? YES! But, I would wary of someone who has a violent past.
       
      Stepping Through the Mirror - Headstall
       
      invisible and forgotten. I wanted to shake Blake's parents. They remembered he had this 'art thing' but the other siblings were more important. No chld is more important than another.
       
      I felt for Blake's trust issues when Ryan tried flirting with him.
       
      And lastly I cheered when they left together for their happy ever after.
       
      The Legend of Treehaven Woods - Valkyrie
       
      I liked this one but I wanted more.
       
      I wanted to know more about the legends surrounding the woods. I wanted to know more about the community.
       
      And I definitely wanted to see more of the blooming romance between Matthew and Kater.
       
      Trade Deals - Sasha Distan
       
      I like how Anubis told the rude person to walk and took the others on the barge.
       
      I also liked how Set had to beg for help from the one God he seemed to really hate.
       
      I think the ending was my favourite bit though. Anubis seemed to have grown up and fallen in love. It was a sweet ending.
       
      Voli Me Tangare - aditus
       
      *Tissue Warning*
       
      I can't imagine never being with the one I love, and yet being linked to his mind always.
       
      Only having small things to remember him by. Living on the hope that one day we will be together again.
       
      A great story, but very sad as well.
       
      Waiter, Waiter - ME
       
      All comments are gratefully received.
       
      Overall
       
      I loved all the stories in this anthology, all for different reasons.
       
      I had fun participating for the first time, and have had even more fun reading and reviewing all the other entries.
       
      My thanks go to everyone involved with this anthology and I look forward to the next one.
