Posting New Chapters

Posted: February 26, 2014 by LilGray in Uncategorized

Hello Readers!  Robin and I have been hard at work on our novel, The Vampire’s Pet, and It’s Elemental.  The novel has thirty-one (31) chapters written and It’s Elemental has fourteen (14) written.

As such I have decided to start posting them…  I will post the first chapter of The Vampire’s Pet on Friday and then on every Friday (in the evening probably between 8 and 10 pm) I’ll post the next chapter… I’ll shoot to post them around the same time on Fridays.  I figure thirty-one (31) chapters are enough of a buffer that we should not have any long periods without new chapters (crosses fingers.)

It’s Elemental has fourteen (14) chapters written so I’m going to give you the first chapter today and then on Tuesdays (also around 8 to 10 pm) I’ll post the subsequent chapters one at a time…  I’m taking down the old stuff since new chapters will be posted each week.

I should warn you that there were previously four chapters posted for It’s Elemental and I split up the old chapters into shorter chapters and then fleshed them out to keep them from getting too long… so I think the last new chapter that was already posted in some form is chapter ten (10).  The completely new stuff starts with chapter eleven (11)…

Robin and I have endeavored to remove most of the repeating stuff… so the same scene isn’t written twice or three times in different perspectives since that’s been driving me nuts… not sure why I wrote it that way in the first place…but oh well… it’s fixed now…lol.

Now for The Vampire’s Pet we need a favor from all of you…  As I’m sure some of you will notice the novel started out as The Viking’s Pet, a Sookie Stackhouse/Eric Northman Southern Vampire Mysteries/True Blood fan fiction… so we went in and tried to remove everything that is the intellectual property of other people (Ms. Harris or Mr. Ball for example) so what we need from all of you is for you to keep an eye out for anything we missed.

We changed ‘glamour’ to ‘enhance’ but left the ability since according to our research Vampires are able to control their victims’ minds in some fashion in several fandoms so we don’t feel our version is encroaching on anyone else’s intellectual property… if you disagree and/or have suggestions to make it better and different please let us know (We’ll even give you a shout out in the Authors’ Notes).

Now I had to manually go in and switch all the ‘glamour’ and ‘glamouring’ to ‘enhance’, ‘enhanced’, or ‘enhancement’ since the suffixes for ‘enhance’ didn’t match up with the ones for glamour in some cases so I couldn’t do a replace all and have the program change them for me… so if you notice the word ‘glamour’ used in that context please drop us a comment and let us know about it so we can fix it… I’m pretty sure I’ve gotten them all by this point but better safe than sorry…

Also, we have Vampire Blood as a drug, we call it Dracula’s Blood and Dracula’s Blood – Amplified or DB and DB-amp for short…  DB-amp is straight up Vampire’s Blood and makes the person feel more alive and have better senses as well as feel more sensual.  DB on the other hand is the ashes created when a Vampire is killed.  The ashes can be snorted or cooked like Meth and either smoked in a meth pipe or injected… It cannot be smoked like weed; when flame touches the ashes they immediately disintegrate as Vampires’ and fires do not mix.…  DB is a hallucinogen… we included the drugs since Ms. Harris is not the only one to use Vampire Blood as a drug (Moonlight is probably one of the more recent examples only they called it ‘Black Crystal’).  If you have any ideas to make this more original feel free to share but we’re fairly confident that we’re not encroaching on anyone else’s intellectual property by including the drugs.  If you disagree let us know and we’ll see if we can change it more to make it more ours than we already have.

If you see anything else you feel belongs to someone not Lilly Gray or Robin then please let us know.  We in no way shape or form wish to plagiarize anyone so any help in making sure we don’t accidentally do that would be most appreciated…

Other than that we hope you enjoy our stories… the first chapter of It’s Elemental is posted now and the link to the main story page is below (to be clear, subsequent chapters will be posted on Tuesdays not Wednesdays).

Look for the first chapter of The Vampire’s Pet to be posted on Friday.

Happy Reading!

-Lilly and Robin
