Skylight: The Yarnpire Chronicles II

You remember this post, in which the epic love story of the Misunderstood Loser and her Paranormal Paramour unfolded. Well, as it's Hallowe'en, I thought it was time for the second installment. Be warned, though, it is Hallowe'en, so you might find this post particularly spooky...

Okay, so Nellie our heroine, like, totally hooked up with Viktor, the hunky exchange student from Transylvania. The first few months progressed as one could expect: a lot of teenage angst about piddling trifles, pointless misunderstandings based on their crippling inability to communicate in words, as well as much soul-searching, scenery-chewing and other compound nouns. Because I've now watched True Blood, I'd like you to imagine that there were also a perplexing number of encounters with Faeries, werewolves and a homesick yeti. Anyways, let's skip over all of that and go straight to the obligatory montage of romantic moments. Cue soppy music:

Moonlit walks on deserted beaches.

Joyride on the bow of doomed ocean liner.

Cutesy moment involving spaghetti.

Then, one night, Nellie decides to pay Viktor a spontaneous visit:

No answer. She lets herself in - and finds, to her horror, that Viktor has succumbed to his base yarnpiric instincts. Gasp!


Is there any hope for their relationship???
You'll have to wait on tenterhooks till the next installment, dear readers.

What's mermaid bumfluff? Oh dear. I think you should have a look at this.

Poor Nell. What a horror to find her flame consuming yarn, expensive yarn, no doubt!
