The Cosmos:
{Taryn walks in and sits at her usual table}
The Cosmos:
{Sang sits with Akhiro and Van along with Kat and Nikki}
The Universe:
{David, Aiden, Conrad, Jace, Christopher and Samuel have already hit the morning joint along with any girls that would}
The Cosmos:

The Cosmos:

The Cosmos:
{Camille sits with Joey and Lia}
The Cosmos:
{Renee looks at Devon and then at Ryan, quietly} I’m widowed not divorced and my husband was killed doing one of his daredevil stunts. He was BASE jumping and his cord snapped.


The Universe:
{Ryan looks at Ren, quietly} How long ago?
The Cosmos:
{Renee quietly} A little under a year.
The Universe:
{Ryan shakes his head} I’m sorry. {glances at Devon thinking “that must’ve been a mess” though he would *never* say that out loud, looks back at Ren} How long were you married?
The Cosmos:
{Devon blinks, quietly} I’m sorry Ren. That must have been {glances at Ryan} awful for you.
The Cosmos:
{Renee looks at Ryan, shakes her head} He died four days shy of our second anniversary. {looks at Devon} It was. The only way I could identify him was by his wedding ring. We’d had them made and were very unique.
The Universe:
{Ryan nods} I don’t even know what to say.
The Universe:
{Aiden takes a long drag off the joint, cashing it out, drops it in the ashtray} Loch’s gonna be sorry he missed that.
The Cosmos:
{Renee smiles} You don’t have to say anything. He died doing what he enjoyed. That’s a comfort and he wouldn’t want me pining away after him. He’d want me to live which is what I’ve been doing.
The Universe:
{Ryan smiles at Ren} Well, I’m glad you’re doing it with us.
The Cosmos:
{Aubrey looks at David, smiles} How yafeelin’ this morning?
The Universe:
{David looks at Aubrey, holds up his spiked cup of coffee} I been worse.
The Cosmos:
{Renee smiles at Ryan} I am too. He’d’ve loved you guys.
The Cosmos:
{Aubrey laughs} Hair of the dog?
The Universe:
{Aiden smirks} He’s probably still drunk.
The Universe:
{David nods} Damn right. {looks at Aiden, smiles} I actually slept that shit off.
The Cosmos:
{Saige walks in and heads for Tristan’s table, smiles} Morning.
The Universe:
{Samuel smiles} Then you either weren’t drunk enough or you were drinkin’ the wrong shit.
The Universe:
{Tristan smiles at Saige} Morning.
The Cosmos:
{Saige takes a seat} What’s up?
The Universe:
{Tristan leans over and kisses Saige} Not much. I think everyone’s still waking up.
The Cosmos:
{Saige smiles} Probably. {kisses him back}
The Cosmos:
{Eden walks in grabs coffee and heads over to the table where Ethan’s sitting, finds an empty seat and gulps her coffee}
The Cosmos:
{Siobhan and Mia sit at the table with the other ghouls, eating}
The Universe:
{Ethan looks over at Eden as he takes a sip from his own cup}
The Cosmos:
{Shay eats with a single minded goal}
The Cosmos:
{Sophia walks in and heads to Samuel’s table}
The Universe:
{Jace looks at the other ghouls} So.. Heather wants to turn me. Well.. Heather and Sebastian.
The Cosmos:
{Siobhan blinks} Seriously?
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Jace, arches a brow} Have they spoken to Genja?
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} A promotion. Nice.
The Cosmos:
{Kat watches Akhiro surreptitiously as she eats}
The Universe:
{Jace nods} Yeah, seriously. And Genja’sgonna rule tonight.
The Cosmos:
{Aubrey looks over and grins} Oh..he’sgonna be insufferable now.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Aubrey, smiles} Like I’m not already?
The Cosmos:
{Mia looks at Aubrey } Do you even know what that means?
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at Mia} Google.
The Cosmos:
{Aubrey laughs}
The Cosmos:
{Mia looks at Gabe nods} Word of the day?
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles} No, actually. The word of the day is “taken”. As in..that’s what I am since last night.
The Universe:
{Jace rolls his eyes} Speakin’ of insufferable.
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at Jace} You’re just jealous because now you’ll *never* get to play with the pigtails.
The Cosmos:
{Mia laughs} She finally got off her ass, huh. What’d you do? threaten to cut em off?
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles at Mia} Yanno, I actually tried to kidnap her. Lured her to my room telling her I had a secret. And she totally turned that shit around and thought *she* was gonna do the kidnapping.
The Cosmos:
{Mia smiles} Oh reeeaaly? Do tell.
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles again, shrugs} Not much to tell. Ultimately, no one got kidnapped but I *did* manage to hold her hostage til she agreed I was her boyfriend.
The Universe:
{Loch walks in with his arm around Bree, a little late because they were puppy feeding, looks around, whispers} This look like everyone to you?
The Cosmos:
{Bree nods} Mostly.
The Universe:
{Loch nods, looks over the room} So, we’ve got a couple of announcements. Figured we’d do this shit like high school home room. First, Bree’s mine so all you fuckers who are hot for her can go home and cry. Second… one week from tonight, *we* are havin’ a fetish ball. Do *not* tell the vampires.
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles} Sweet! On both things.

 

The Universe:
{the boys look over, Ro smiles} Oh, *this* should be fun.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn whispers to which ever guy is close} What exactly does that mean?
The Universe:
{Akhiro looks over at Taryn, smiles} It means you get to dress up in your favorite latex, pvc or leather outfit and whatever other bondage type accoutrements you have and join us in the ball room for drinking and live music.
The Universe:
{Christopher sighs} God, I hate fetish balls.
The Universe:
{Conrad looks at Christopher} You say that like you’ve actually been to one.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn blinks} PVC.. {looks at Christopher} Isn’t that what pipes are made of?
The Universe:
{Christopher nods} Actually, I’ve been to a couple. *And* a couple of “vampire balls”. {looks at Taryn, smiles} Wrong kind of PVC.
The Cosmos:
{Saige looks over at Akhiro} Don’t worry about it..Tary won’t go.
The Universe:
{Jace looks over at Saige} Edward will.
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles} Edward will be all over that shit. All the vampires will.
The Cosmos:
{Izzy smiles at Ethan} Some of us wouldn’t mind seeing you in all leather.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Izzy, smiles} See, I was thinking I’d go for some PVC pants, but I think I can manage leather.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks at Saige} I *will* go. {smiles} And Edward and I’ll put you all to shame.
The Universe:
{Tristan laughs} Wiggle in that.
The Universe:
{the boys look at Taryn, Jace arches a brow} *You*?
The Cosmos:
{Izzy grins}
The Universe:
{Ethan laughs at Tristan’s comment, smiles at Taryn} Ignore the haters, babe. I have no doubt you can pull it off.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn arches her brow at Jace} What? You don’t think I can manage leather, latex or PVC?
The Universe:
{Loch looks at Bree, smiles} You want some coffee, baby?
The Cosmos:
{Bree nods} Please.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} Leather, probably. That’s about it on that list though.
The Universe:
{Aiden smiles at Taryn, to Jace} Please. That little girl puts on any of the above and she’ll be smokin’.
The Cosmos:
{Saige laughs}The only leather you’ve ever worn was your riding boots and the only PVC was your raincoat. The pink and white polka dots.
The Universe:
{Loch nods, takes Bree’s hand and heads over to the coffee pot}
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks at Saige} I was five when I had that and you had one too.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles, takes a sip of his coffee} I am sure Edward will find her something that will make the rest of you wish you hadn’t doubted her.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks over at Aiden} Thank you.
The Universe:
{Loch glances at Saige as they walk by} Not havin’ worn it doesn’t mean she *can’t*.
The Cosmos:
{Saige smiles at Loch} Please. She wears bandanas as halter tops. Oh I totally think she can wear it..she *won’t*. Hell I took her to a club wear boutique and she all but ran out of the place blushing and crying. When I managed to get her to come back and try something on… she totally lost it. It was a latex mini.
The Cosmos:
{Bree looks at Saige} Why would you take your virgin sister to a fetish outfitters?
The Universe:
{Morose looks over at Taryn, to Saige} Why would you out your sister like that?
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks at them} I wanted to go with her to a club.
The Universe:
{Morose looks at Bree} Club wear and fetish wear aren’t the same thing.
The Cosmos:
{Bree nods} I know…
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks at Morose} It’s okay.. I didn’t realize she was hitting sex clubs that night.
The Universe:
{Morose looks at Taryn, smiles} Did she used to chase you around the house with condoms in front of your boyfriends?
The Cosmos:
{Taryn shakes her head} No..thank god… she did make me {sighs} I’m going to hate myself for this.. learn to put one on a guy… with my mouth.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn blinks} Using a banana.
The Universe:
{the boys crack up}
The Universe:
{Morose laughs} Hey. As long as she didn’t do it in front of anyone, it’s not nearly as traumatizing.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks down} Oh it was traumatizing when the really cute ranch hand walked in on us.
The Cosmos:
{Saige smiles} No it wasn’t.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles at Saige} I bet he didn’t think so either.
The Cosmos:
{Saige shrugs} He didn’t.
The Universe:
{Tristan looks at Saige, smiles} And what did *you* do when he walked in?
The Cosmos:
{Saige looks at Tristan} I showed him it was possible to do it to a real boy.
The Universe:
{the boys crack up again}
The Universe:
{Ro just smiles and shakes his head}
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks at Morose} *I* got outta dodge.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn smiles} Jumped right out the loft window.
The Universe:
{Morose looks at Taryn, smiles} That.. was probably even more traumatizing then my uncle chasing me around the house throwing condoms at me in front of the girl I was about to go on my first date with.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn nods and smiles} Actually, Saige got busted for that because my dad happened to catch me jumping out of the loft. I thought he was gonna kill the guy and send Saige to a convent in Antarctica or something.
The Cosmos:
{Saige smiles} Still don’t know why you didn’t use the ladder.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks at Saige} Because you and Bo were Blocking it.
The Universe:
{Tristan arches a brow} Bo?
The Universe:
{Samuel laughs} *That* is some redneck shit right there.
The Cosmos:
{Saige nods} Yeah Bo. {shrugs} His parents were from the hills.
The Universe:
{Samuel looks at Shay, smiles} Too bad they didn’t end up married. I can see the pickup now.
The Cosmos:
{Shay laughs} Can you imagine their kids? Bo Junior. they call him BJ for short, and then there’s Meryl, and Earl and Bobby Jean. Who they also call BJ for short but for totally different reasons.
The Universe:
{Samuel laughs} Hey, you just described some of the good ol’ boys I grew up next door to.
The Cosmos:
{Shay cracks up}
The Universe:
{Aiden smiles} And here I thought she was describin’ an episode of the Dukes of Hazard.
The Cosmos:
{Saige flips Shay off} Hey..he’d’ve had you bent over the rail.
The Cosmos:
{Shay smiles at Aiden} I used to watch that show. Ci watched it for the guys.. I watched it for the cars.
The Cosmos:
{Shay frowns} Where *is* Ciara?
The Universe:
{Loch hands Bree a cup of coffee, grabs his own and heads to a table with her}
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks at Shay} Lucien took her into town last night so they could be alone.
The Cosmos:
{Bree takes the cup and goes with Loch}
The Universe:
{Jace laughs} Shit. That reminds me. {smiles} We actually interrupted Genja last night and first thing he says is “this must be Karma for keepin’ Lucien away from *his* virgin”.
The Cosmos:
{Eden looks at Jace} That was *you*?
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Eden, nods} Yeah, that was us. We had some shit to talk to him about that couldn’t wait.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} Sebastian claimed the librarian.
The Universe:
{Jace shakes his head} Heard she was wearin’ a red cloak and everything.
The Cosmos:
{Bree nods} I saw her. She was.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Bree, smiles} Yeah, but did you hear how he got her?
The Cosmos:
{Bree shakes her head} No.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles more broadly} He had at her in the library in *beast* form and she showed up at his door lookin’ for more later. He decided to keep her.
The Cosmos:
{Sang blinks} Oh..ew.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Sang} Babe. He’s got his very own Lucy. It’s kinda cool.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} He’s buyin’ her the dress and everything.
The Cosmos:
{Saige smiles} Awesome.
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles} Seriously? Wow. That’s incredible. Where’s he getting it?
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Gabe, smiles} Where’s he gettin’ it?
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles} I’ll let you know when I find it. *And* the roses. *And* the silver goblets. *And* the Absinthe.
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles} Okay that’s cool.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Sang} Yeah, I was surrounded by fuckin’ romantics last night.
The Cosmos:
{Eden whispers to Ethan} Did I hear that right?
The Cosmos:
{Sang laughs} Sucks to be you.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods to Eden, whispers} If you heard “Absinthe, silver goblets, red dress and roses, you totally heard that right.
The Cosmos:
{Eden nods} And Beast form.. I can only assume that’s the form that tried to eat me.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods, whispers} I was blocking that particular detail.
The Cosmos:
{Eden smiles} Good idea.
The Universe:
{Ethan smiles, nods}
The Cosmos:
{Taryn smiles like she knows a secret as she eats}
The Universe:
{Loch looks around the room, whispers to Bree} Hayden’s missing, too.
The Cosmos:
{Bree nods} Yeah she is. {frowns} I wonder where she is?
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Izzy} So..are you going to the fetish ball?
The Cosmos:
{Izzy nods} Of course I am. {smiles} I wouldn’t miss it for anything.
The Universe:
{Ethan smiles} And what’s your fetish material of choice?
The Cosmos:
{Izzy smiles} Probably for something like that.. PVC.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} That’s cool.
The Universe:
{Tristan looks at Izzy, smiles} By that, he means “I wonder if she’ll go for the Cat Woman look”}
The Universe:
{Ethan laughs} Dude. They’re *all* going to look like Cat Woman.
The Cosmos:
{Izzy looks at Tristan then back to Ethan} I can do that.
The Universe:
{Ethan smiles at Izzy} Complete with the whip?
The Cosmos:
{Izzy laughs} Totally.
The Universe:
{Ethan smiles more broadly} The whip totally makes that outfit. You know that right?
The Cosmos:
{Izzy nods} Of course it does. And what’s a fetish ball without a few whips.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods sagely} Totally. It just wouldn’t be a fetish ball at all.
The Universe:
(Ro looks at Christopher} Can you help me with something before you go to work?
The Universe:
{Christopher nods} Yeah, sure.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Brennan} So we had a really interesting conversation last night about ghouls and vampires and found out that the last herds pretty much mostly grew old or got turned. It was actually kind of reassuring.
The Universe:
{Brennan looks at Tristan} Seriously? I was wondering, but I really didn’t want to know, you know?
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} Totally. I didn’t want to know either.
The Cosmos:
{Izzy looks at Ethan} That’s one of those things I think most of us were curious about.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Izzy} Yeah. It really seemed like one of those unspoken questions that was hanging over everyone.
The Cosmos:
{Izzy smiles} It’s good to know our longevity isn’t threatened.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks at Roland, quietly} Are you okay?
