"I moved in a few weeks ago. The brochures didn't say: Welcome to Sunnydale, we have a diverse demonic community."

"I bet they have mixers and everything. Demon mixers. BYO soul."

Ezra snorts.

"Demonic potlucks, everyone has to bring ice because the hell-fire keeps melting it."

Permalink

"They have to keep inviting new people, they keep eating the old ones."

She smiles up at him, "I'm Lina, by the way."

Permalink

"Anthony," He offers his hand "but call me Ezra, it is my middle name."

Permalink

She shakes his hand, faux-seriously. Then giggles a little, and lets go.

"How long have you known about the things that go bump in the night?"

Permalink
Ezra takes a pause to think, making it look like he is trying to remember

"A week after we moved. A friend of a friend came to visit and explained about the high rate of nightly bumps."
Permalink

"Oh, that's really recent. I've known since I was a kid, my mom is a witch too. Have you thought about learning the craft, or is it just curiosity?" She mentions towards the books he is slowly collecting.

Permalink

"A bit of both? It depends how complicated it gets, at the moment I am doing research on souls and minds, because affecting then freaks me out."

Permalink

"Freaks you out?"

Permalink

"Well... yes? I don't know how other people don't. I mean vampirism..."

Permalink
"I mean, yes, vampires scare the crap out of me. But I don't think I've ever really focused on the specifics of it. Dying and having a demon replacing you in your body. The whole soullessness is kind of a crappy side effect in a sea of crappy side effects."

She shivers. "At least I have my magic to protect me."

"If you had asked me a month ago, I would have told you that a person and their memories are one and the same. Except vampires are real, and despite knowing souls are at play it still feels like vampirism means that you come back from the dead... except wrong."

"Sorry, I am not usually this morbid. I am glad you can protect yourself."
Permalink

"Popular theory is that it isn't really you that comes back. Your soul is what makes you you and that passes onto whatever dimension suits you best."

Permalink

"Huh, and I honestly don't know if I should interpret that as 'people's religious view affecting their perceptions' or 'evidence affecting religious views', which does not quite deal with the issue of vampirism."

Permalink

"Vampires do predate most religions..."

Permalink

"I figured, but still it's not obvious how much one influenced the other."

Permalink

"I think the evidence to that might predate any of the books we have here... or maybe even predate literacy."

Permalink

Sigh. "Aren't some of these entities supposed to be old enough to remember? They could at least have the courtesy to write things down once that was invented."
