    Chapter 8
    Reuben is such an incredible frowny grumpypants 😂I don’t think we’ve seen him smile once so far, have we? Maybe when he first took Ion in, but definitely not after that. Seems like those ladies (or the guy) haven’t gone to the police station so far, huh? At least not that police station. I didn’t recognise anyone in the pictures, at least 🤔 hmm…

    One of the advantages of a modern vampire is that, yeah, there’s probably someone ready at all times to have you drink from them, crazy as it is. Ooooh, he likes Annie? Likes her or likes her, I wonder? Oh! He laughed! And he’s smiling! Well colour me surprised. I didn’t think that would happen in the same chapter as me calling him a frowny grumpypants 😆

    Hm. What is Ion reacting to extremely to, I wonder? Does he know her? Or is it just the fact that Reuben is smiling and being friendly?

    @_sims_Yimi I love these comments! They made me laugh really hard this morning. Thanks!

    "Frowny grumpypants" :joy::joy: Yes, he is. Smiles are pretty rare with this guy.
    What is Ion reacting to extremely to, I wonder? Does he know her? Or is it just the fact that Reuben is smiling and being friendly?

    Given all the things we've so far seen Ion react in astonishment to, it could be literally anything.

    Though Reuben smiling and being friendly would be a very good contender. :lol:

    @haneul Thanks for reading! I'm glad you're enjoying it. I love getting comments in either place. Or both places. :wink:

    Oh my...
    This could be the most hilarious explanation of sixamians' biology I've ever read XD
    Ion and Annie were adorable in this chapter, while for Reuben this sounds like a nightmare situation, poor him XD

    @Ellupelluellu and @HermioneSims Thanks for reading and for the comments! So glad you enjoyed the chapter.

    Reuben really was not ready for that conversation after a long day. :joy: Plus he's at least a few centuries old. People probably didn't talk about this stuff back in his day. :wink:

    New chapter!
    Already in fits of laughter at Ion thinking the dog is another Paladin...and the fact the new neighbour thinks he's just a DnD nerd XD Amazing. I love how she just sassed Reuben without a second thought as well. 'Besides, I like to find out people's pronouns as early as possible when I meet them so I'm not miss-gendering them. Seemed like a good moment for it.' I LOVEW HIM SO MUCH He'S SO PRECIOUS I wish he was real ;-; And there's no grotty attitudes in response, she just tells it like it is and helps him learn about humans and I love that so so so SO SO SO much. Honestly this whole story just sums up the neurodivergent mood so well. Every single conversation is a minefield, everyone else breaks the rules they tell you to follow, and you know something tiny you do will set that social minefield off somehow. Looks like Reuben had enough of that discussion though XD

    Awww... @SnowBnuuy Thank you so much for this comment! :smiley:

    Annie and Ion together are so much fun for me to write. It was hard to wait this long to introduce Annie to the readers. But this was the right moment for her to make her grand entrance. :lol: Even if it caused Reuben to make a... uh.... "grand exit".
    Every single conversation is a minefield, everyone else breaks the rules they tell you to follow, and you know something tiny you do will set that social minefield off somehow.

    This is so, so a familiar a feeling for me. Conversations with people I don't know really well are exhausting for me because I am constantly worrying about how I am coming across and analyzing everything I want to say, everything I already said, everything I almost said but then didn't, and checking whether or not I am wearing the right face expression for the topic being discussed. I end up missing a lot of what other people are saying as a result, which makes things even more awkward, and then of course that gives me another whole set of things to feel anxiety about. One of the many reasons I became good at writing, it's way easier for me than talking.

    I'm not sure if you and I have similar experiences or not, it sounds like yours may be somewhat different from mine. My struggles are largely anxiety based and stemming most probably from experiences with bullying a long time ago. But, I am honored that you find things you relate to in these characters. Annie, Ion, and honestly even Reuben, derive a lot of their personality from my own internal struggles. So even though I have a lot of fun with them, and ultimately I just want to tell an entertaining fantasy soap-opera story, there is a deeply personal aspect this set of characters and their experiences as well.

    Oh yup, felt that. Add that to the pile of 'brain no work properly' and every conversation becomes ...ugh X_X

    Really enjoyed both
    the super creative alien biology lore, and the friend with no shame who can't figure out if Ion is a cosplayer or an actual alien :)

    Whatever happens from here on, I'm sure I won't be bored
