My Mistakes Were Made For You

The Cosmos:
{Heather goes with them, looks at Jace} If he makes you choose who will you choose Jace?
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather} That’s a no-brainer. Jenna.


The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Actually, that surprises me.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at her curiously} Why?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shrugs} Because of Aiden.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Heather} Jenna’s the one that maintains him, though. They’d *all* choose that vamp over the other.
The Universe:
{Jace shakes his head} What’s Aiden got to do with it?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shrugs} Nothing…
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather} Aiden’s actually pretty cool.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} He is and to hear Jenna talk about him she’s diggin’ him hard. All but threatened us if we tried to take him.
The Universe:
{Jace arches a brow} *Aiden*? Better yet.. *Jenna*? Damn.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Yeah.. she’s pretty possessive of him and was all over him in the music room the other night.
The Universe:
{Jace nods} Yeah, I know. I was there that night. He doesn’t really talk about personal shit, though. Someone was givin’ him shit about how he needed to get laid and it took a bit for him to even say he *was* gettin’ laid, but when he did, he went balls out and informed us about the door they broke. Hayden had to fix it and they turned right around and broke it again the same night.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Go Jenna.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles, nods} I think they broke some other shit while they were at it.
The Universe:
{Jace shrugs} Either way, he’s just as all over her in public as she is him.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} He’s loosening her up.
The Universe:
{Jace nods} Seems like it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles}
The Universe:
{Sebastian stops outside Genja’s door and knocks}
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Sebastian} God I hope he’s not naked.
The Universe:
{Genja opens the door naked and obviously a little displeased} This is karma for keeping Lucien away from his virgin, isn’t it?
The Cosmos:
{Heather bursts out laughing}
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Genja} I don’t even know what you’re talking about.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Genja} We need to talk to you about the vampire, ghoul, herd situation and what’s fucked up about it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather gets control} Sorry… I just.. it’s.. yeah.. anyway.
The Universe:
{Genja arches a brow} Fine. I’ll be right out. {closes the door}
The Universe:
{the boys burst out laughing}
The Cosmos:
{Heather blinks} I wonder who we’re tearing him away from.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather} Who cares? It doesn’t make it less funny.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} No it doesn’t.
The Universe:
{Genja comes out a couple of minutes later, closes the door behind him, leans back against it and crosses his arms} Let’s try to make this quick.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks over at Genja} Are we keeping you from your virgin?
The Universe:
{Genja looks at Heather} She’s not a virgin anymore, but yes, actually you are. And considering tonight is the first night she’s actually seemed to enjoy my company for more than five minutes, I’d like to get back to her as soon as possible.
The Cosmos:
{Heather blinks} All right then.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Genja} So I’ll make it quick, then. The ghouls shouldn’t be part of any herd but the vampires that maintain ’em because it complicates shit too much for us. We have to answer to two vampires who might have conflicting agendas, which one is responsible for dealing with our fucks ups or do we have to get punished *twice* and which one do we save if someone leaves their curtains open.
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods} Not to mention, if a vampire wants to turn a ghoul with two *other* vampires, just how many vampires have to be involved in the decision.
The Universe:
{Genja arches a brow} And we have to deal with this right this second?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shrugs} We want to turn him.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Genja} The sooner the better. Aubrey is a good example. She got utterly fucked up tonight with David who Chloe just gave to Heather. *He’s* so shitfaced, it’s amazing he’s not in a coma. But Aubrey’s in Damien’s herd. However, she’s *my* ghoul so I don’t intend on letting him deal with it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Sebastian}
The Universe:
{Genja nods} All right. No one is Embraced without *my* approval first. After that, it will be a matter of discussing it with the Master and getting *their* approval. However, in the future you will discuss your intentions to Embrace someone else’s ghoul with *them* before you approach the ghoul. Or human as the case may be. Secondly, you know better than to turn someone’s ghoul without appropriate compensation to the Master.

The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} I know.. and I will talk to Jenna, but he *is* Simone’s… feeder.

The Universe:
{Genja looks at Heather} Donor. Which brings us to the next issue you brought up. We will be fixing that as it *is* an issue. She can feed from the unmastered ghouls or any humans that haven’t been claimed without permission. Anyone else, she needs permission from the vampire they belong to.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Sebastian then at Jace}
The Universe:
{Genja looks at Sebastian} In the meantime, I will be informing the others that the mastered ghouls will be returning to their proper masters. Beyond that… fix your own fucking herds.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} I’ll let the girls know.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Heather, smiles} Things are gonna get interesting.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods smiling} Seriously…as if they haven’t been enough.
The Universe:
{Genja nods to Heather} The sooner the better. I’ll make official decrees and all that bullshit tomorrow night.
The Universe:
{Genja looks between them} On the matter of Jace being turned… I’ll think about it and rule on that tomorrow night as well.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Shall I let them know that you will be speaking as soon as dinner is over?
The Universe:
{Genja looks at Heather} I will be speaking to the vampires and the unmastered ghouls in the throne room two hours after sunset. The vampires can tell their own humans and ghouls what’s going on or not as they deem fit.

 
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} All right.
The Universe:
{Genja nods} Is that everything?
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Genja} I’ve claimed the librarian.
The Universe:
{Genja looks at Sebastian} Good. You could use some culture.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Genja} And I took David away from Chloe. and Bree’s with me as well. {looks at Jace, frowns} You’re right.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather} Yeah, see?
The Universe:
{Genja looks at Heather} Is Chloe finally within her allotted limit?
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Yes.. She’s got Ethan and Conrad. I’m over though.
The Cosmos:
{Heather continues quickly} But only until you decide about Jace.
The Universe:
{Genja nods} Seth is unmastered and Brianna is a ghoul. Release Seth from your herd and send Brianna back to the umnastered section of the castle. If she’s an issue, she can deal with the consequences. They are called “unmastered” for a reason and we are not babysitters. I put her with them so they could teach her to be a proper unmastered ghoul in the first place.
The Universe:
{Genja looks at Heather pointedly} It is *their* role to serve *us*. Not the other way around.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} I took her because she’d moved in with Seth. Yes, Genja. She also seems to be involved with my human…Loch. As in.. exclusively as of tonight anyway.

The Universe:
{Genja looks at Heather} And this is supposed to mean something to me? I’ve told you what to do. Now see it done. {looks at Sebastian} Help Heather.
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods} I’m on it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Genja} Okay.
The Universe:
{Genja nods} We’re done here. You can go now.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Have a good night, Genja.
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods} Come on, kiddies. {starts down the hall}
The Universe:
{Genja nods} Thank you. {goes back in his room}
The Cosmos:
{Heather turns and heads down the hall}
The Universe:
{Jace follows Sebastian}
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Heather} Genja doesn’t care where Brianna sleeps. He cares that “officially” she has her own room in the appropriate section of the castle.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} I don’t care where she sleeps. My goal was to get her away from Seth. Which as I said he seemed just as relieved about.
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods} Which you’ve said. Listen to what I’m saying to you. *Oficially*. That means you don’t have to go back to your room and kick her out. What it means is she has to have a room of.her.own. We can’t have unmastered ghouls bouncing from one room to another based on who they’re fucking. It means when a relationship ends she doesn’t have to keep moving her shit all over the castle. And maybe she’ll be less inclined to move in with the *next* guy if she *does* have her own room. *All* the unmastered ghouls have their own rooms and even some of the mastered ones. Like Aubrey.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} I understand that, Sebastian. And In light of what was said tonight while I was in the music room I’m thinking the least amount of herd shifting done the better.
The Universe:
{Jace nods} I’ll second that.
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods} And you don’t have to shift her. Just have Alexei assign her a room, tell her which one is hers and she can shack up with Loch all she wants for as long as you’re willing to put up with it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shrugs} Hell I might go live in her room.
The Universe:
{Jace shakes his head} That’d put you closer to Seth anyway.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smirks} Not funny Jace.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at her} I’m not laughin’.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him} I don’t want to be closer to him. I didn’t want him in my herd. I picked him because he was unclaimed and there.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at them} Genja’s right. This babysitting bullshit has to stop. We ghoul people because they’re competent. We *keep* unmastered ghouls because *they’re* competent. And our humans are *just* dinner. They’re not our bodyguards or our servants. The only obligation they have to us is baring their throats and opening their legs as the case may be. The only obligation we have to them is none. They’re fed, clothed and everything else as part of the household.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Sebastian} Is *that* how you feel about Little Red Ridinghood?
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Heather} Yeah. That’s exactly how I feel about her. She understands her role and she understands she’s mine. She moved in with me because it’s more convenient for both of us and yes, I like fucking her. I might even like her. And that’s fine. It happens. But *initially* that’s all that was about. And I’m not lying to her and making her promises I won’t be able to keep. She’s with me because she understands she’s safer if she belongs to me than if she doesn’t belong to anyone.
The Universe:
{Sebastian shakes his head} They’re pets, Heather. Hell, some of us are even collecting them like pets. *I* don’t keep “pets”. I have animal companions and she’s my companion too. She’s also aware of that.
The Universe:
{Jace looks over at him} And you made it a point to tell Genja you took her when you probably didn’t have to.
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} I’m making it a point to tell *everyone*.
The Universe:
{Jace nods} Why?
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Sebastian} Staking his claim.
The Universe:
{Jace nods to Heather} That’s part of it, yeah. But another part of it is because she wanted to know how everyone would know who she belonged to. So, I’m showing her.
The Universe:
{Jace nods} Right. Why? Why are you showing her?
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at her} Because you’re an asshole, that’s why. Now shut up and mind your own business.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather} Great reason, there.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Sebastian confused} Why is he an asshole.. because I’d *really * like to understand that.
The Universe:
{Sebastian just shakes his head and looks down the hall as they walk}
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather, smiles} I’m an asshole because he doesn’t want to answer that. Because the only reason to “show her” how people would know is because “she wanted to know how they’d know”.
The Universe:
{Jace looks over at Sebastian, smiles again} Because he *likes* her.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Perfect.
The Universe:
{Sebastian smirks} Fuck off. We don’t like each other. We like fucking each other. And she likes knowing I’m *not* gonna chain her in a basement and torture her for a week.
The Universe:
{Jace arches a brow} You’re not? And.. where did that big ball of what the fuck come from?
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Jace, smiles bigger}
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather, smiles}
The Universe:
{Sebastian shakes his head} Don’t worry about where it came from. That’s none of your business either.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} I want to know when you stopped torturing your food.
The Universe:
{Sebastian stops walking and looks at them} Okay.. first.. I went into the library and waited on her and took what I wanted like a *real* vampire and not some pansy ass Twilight shit. Second… second is really not some shit I feel like sharing.
The Universe:
{Jace stops walking, laughs} Wait. How’d you get her to wear the cloak then? I mean.. if you guys don’t like each other and you just took what you wanted like a *real* vampire?
The Universe:
{Sebastian shrugs} She showed up at my door later.
The Cosmos:
{Heather stops and arches her brow} Really? Come on Sebastian it’s just *us*.

The Universe:
{Sebastian rolls his eyes} Fine. She said the last time she loosened up, she went home with a dude and ended up being chained in his basement and tortured for a week. That pretty much tells you if you want them to keep their shit about them, you don’t make them relive the experience.
The Universe:
{Jace grins} So.. you’re *not* gonna torture this one because you don’t want to fuck up her head.
The Universe:
{Sebastian shakes his head} I’m not gonna torture this one because I don’t need to. She came looking for *me* because she wanted more. So, I kept her.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} My god Sebastian that’s almost…human of you.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather} And I thought *you* were collecting strays.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Heather} Don’t *ever* say that to me again.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} I won’t but seriously.. You never cared before if you fucked with their heads. What about that little chit you turned and she ended up being all clingy?
The Universe:
{Sebastian shakes his head, starts walking again} Ancient history. And *this* one.. she got shitty with Simone. {looks at them} By the way.. pretend there’s a rule that we’re not allowed to feed on each other unless we’re in a relationship.
The Universe:
{Jace starts walking when Sebastian does, arches a brow} Why are we pretending there’s a rule like that?
The Universe:
{Sebastian shrugs} Because Simone indicated she wanted to feed on me and I told her that was the rule.
The Cosmos:
{Heather stops} Wait… our librarian got shitty? You did that for your human?
The Universe:
{Sebastian stops and looks at Heather} Yeah. Our librarian didn’t seem to like Simone’s.. suggestion. She told her she didn’t have anything red. And yeah.. I might’ve done that for my human.
The Universe:
{Jace grins again} You *so* dig this girl.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Totally.
The Universe:
{Sebastian rolls his eyes} Children. Maybe I just think it’s cool she digs *me* enough to get shitty with another vampire.
The Universe:
{Jace laughs outright} Maybe you’re full of shit because you didn’t slap her down for cock blocking you.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Which means she digs *you*.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at them} Which makes her already a little fucked up. I don’t *need* to fuck her up more because she’s at a good level of fucked up right where she is.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} Fucked up enough to dig *you*, anyway.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Babe.. I hear you practically had the king’s Virgin *and* Lucien’s virgin wetting themselves over you in your beast form.
The Universe:
{Sebastian shakes his head} She comes back to my room wearing the cloak and nothing else *and* she’s got a fucking *basket*. {looks at them} Little Red Riding Hood wasn’t called “Red” because of her hair but because of the cloak. And this woman comes back to me wearing that thing with.a.fucking.basket. The she says to me “Sebastian, what big teeth you have”. Why the fuck would I kick *that* out of my bed?
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Oh my *god* he’s living the fairy tale.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Heather} Yeah, because they were scared shitless. Then Hera had to get all pissy with me for licking one of them because she was in… {arches a brow} *No*. *That* was role-playing at its best. What made it so hot was it was totally spontaneous.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} What makes it so hot is this girl totally bared her throat to the wolf and *liked* it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Totally. Would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?
The Universe:
{Sebastian rolls his eyes and starts walking again} Librarian or not, fuck nuts, we just seem to click where it counts.
The Universe:
{Jace laughs, looks at Heather, smiling} Wow.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Jace, smiles and starts walking} Uh huh… hey Sebastian?
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks back at Heather} What?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} What color are her eyes?
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather} Maybe *she’s* livin’ the fairy tale, too. I mean she’s a librarian which means she reads all the time and her whole life is probably about books.
The Universe:
{Sebastian shrugs} I don’t know. Blue, I think.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods to Jace} Oh I’m sure she is. {looks at Sebastian} Her hair?
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather} Do you know what color her eyes are?
The Universe:
{Sebastian arches a brow} Brown. You don’t have to be a investigative reporter to see that, though.
The Cosmos:
{Heather hold up a finger to Jace} No.. {looks back at Sebastian} What about the little virgins you terrorized?
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} Red hair and blue eyes. Both of ’em.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} All right.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at her warily} Why?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} Just checking.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Sebastian} Was the librarian at least *wearing* red when you locked onto her?
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} No. She was wearing her reading glasses. And had her hair up in a bun. She was probably the most uptight looking woman in the room.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Jace, to Sebastian} And *you* locked onto that?
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} Have you seen that body?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} No.
The Cosmos:
{Heather blinks} Holy shit.. The human’s think Anya got a hold of Seth and grew him.
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods} The woman is built. And hot. And even hotter when she lets her hair down. And women like that are either really wild in bed or need help getting there. Her being a librarian meant she lives in a fantasy world because the real world is so boring or just plain shitty and the idea of fucking her in beast form in the *library* was just too hot to deny.
The Universe:
{the boys look at Heather, Jace arches a brow} Why the hell would they think that?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} I was bored… For the same reason they thought Bree was given to the ghouls.
The Universe:
{Jace blinks, looks at Sebastian} You fucked her in *beast* form and she came *back*?
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Sebastian} *That’s* why he’s keeping her.
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} When I talked to her, I said something about suddenly interested in reading and she suggests Bram’s Dracula. What would *you* say to that? And did I mention blood play gets her hot? She brought her knives with her to play.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Jace} Okay I’m surprised he’s not in love with her.
The Universe:
{Sebastian shrugs} You say “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” to me and mention the vampire in beast form and *I* immediately think about the scene in the garden where Lucy is wearing the *red* dress and everything else is pretty much faded out while Dracula fucks her in beast form. I figured that might be what she was referring to and maybe she had that fantasy and I wanted to find out.
The Universe:
{Jace nods to Heather} Totally.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Oh I totally know what I’m giving her.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Sebastian} Well, she must’ve because she followed you home. {laughs} And you *kept* her. {smiles at Heather} What?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} I’m gonna have Gabe find that red dress and buy it.
The Universe:
{Sebastian stops and looks at Heather, arches a brow} Fuck.me.
The Universe:
{Jace laughs} The dress she couldn’t keep her tits in?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles at the look on Sebastian’s face} Don’t worry… babe. I’ll have it delivered in your name.

The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} Do it. I’ll pay for it. You realize I have my own Lucy. *And* the castle to keep her in. And Lucy was hotter than Mina any day of the week.

The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Well yeah.. {grins} too bad you can’t do the bonding.
The Universe:
{Jace laughs again} Fuck *me*. {smiles broadly} They have their own fairy tale *and* they’re living out Dracula.
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} This girl just keeps getting better.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs and looks over at Jace} Oh my *god*.
The Cosmos:
{Heather grins, looks at Sebastian} Hypocrite.
The Universe:
{Sebastian rolls his eyes} Slut. {shrugs} Besides. There’s exceptions to every rule. Apparently, she’s mine.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. Ghoul her fast.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at her curiously} Why?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shrugs} Before someone else realizes what a catch you’ve got and tries to take her.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Sebastian} And so you don’t have to be as.. careful.. with her.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} That too.
The Cosmos:
{heather smiles} You can teach her to change forms.
The Universe:
{Sebastian shakes his head} That’s too advanced for ghouls.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} True.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Still you turn her and you won’t accidentally break her.
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} I wonder how she feels about Frankenstein.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} She’s a twisted librarian she probably loves it.
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods, summons Bonnie} I’m going to introduce you to her before I take her back to my room and get her to tell me about her interest in blood play. I don’t think she realizes I picked up on it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} I’ll talk to Gabe tonight.
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} Do me a favor. Get him to order some red lingerie for her too.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Jace} Can you imagine her at work in that librarian outfit with a fuck me red matching satin pushup bra and panties set?
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} I will and I’ll have him order a dozen red roses.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Heather, smiles again} The expensive ones.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} Yeah, I can totally imagine that.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Yes. The very expensive ones. {grins} Maybe even a miniature blood rose.
The Universe:
{Sebastian thinks} I better grab some red wine for her too. Order a set of silver goblets.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Jace} Shit.
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} And maybe get Sorrow to decorate my room.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather} This is startin’ to sound serious.
The Cosmos:
{Heather sighs and nods} Totally.. and my romantic is showing. {looks at Sebastian} There you go.
The Universe:
{Jace nods} Guess we better tell Alexei to break out the Absinthe.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Totally. We could have the gardeners fix up the garden like the one in the movie too.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at them} Oooor.. we could dial this back to right before the roses.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles at Sebastian} You suddenly realize *your* romantic was showin’?
The Universe:
{Sebastian smirks} Bite me.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} Oh no…no no no.. We’re totally doing all of that for you… *and* telling Lucien all about it.
The Universe:
{Sebastian arches a brow} You tell *Lucien* anything about this *or* Bonnie and I’ll rip your tits off.
The Universe:
{Jace blinks, cracks up} *Bonnie*? Her name is *Bonnie*?
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Please. I’m totally telling Lucien. He’ll love it and probably be your biggest ally.

The Universe:
{Sebastian smirks} How about this.. I won’t rip off your tits. I’ll make *Anya* give you back your old body.
The Universe:
{Jace blinks, looks at Heather} You’re not tellin’ Lucien.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Sebastian} I hate you.
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles}
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} I won’t have to. He’ll smell it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Jace} You didn’t have a problem with my old body.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} That was before you got this one.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Oh.. I see.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Sebastian like “bullet dodged”, Sebastian laughs}
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks between them as Bonnie walks up and smiles at Sebastian, she’s wearing a black skirt and red silk top}
The Universe:
{Jace and Sebastian look over at Bonnie, Sebastian smiles} Bonnie, this is Jace and Heather.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie smiles} It’s nice to meet you both.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} You too.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie looks at Sebastian} Is everything all right.
The Universe:
{Jace looks Bonnie over brazenly}
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods} Yeah, I just wanted to make sure they could put a face to the name.
The Cosmos:
{Heather quietly to Jace} Better not let him see you looking at her like that.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather, smiles} Why do you think I’m doin’ it behind his back?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles}
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie smiles at Sebastian, quietly} I got most of my stuff moved.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Bonnie, smiles} Good. Tomorrow night Genja’s gonna rule on whether we can turn Jace. He’s also making us pull our ghouls back into our own herds.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie looks at him} Oh.. okay. So Aubrey will be coming into the group?
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods} Yeah, but she’s got her own room.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie nods} Okay.. Then I won’t… need to feed you every time?
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather}
The Cosmos:
{Heather whispers to Jace} She sounds disappointed.
The Universe:
{Jace whispers} And he’s lookin’ for the “good” answer.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at her, pondering his response} We’ll worry about that when we get to it. You’re not anemic are you?
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie shakes her head} No. I’m not.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Aubrey’ll probably be too busy to be around much.
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods} And I don’t need to feed *every* night.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} Heather’s right. She’s in Damien’s herd right now and he hasn’t had to bite her at all since gettin’ Sang.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie smiles at Heather and looks at Sebastian} I see. So what every other night?
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} I *need* to feed at least once a week or so.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie nods} Oh.. I can do that.
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods}
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather} So, I guess we’ve got an argument to finish.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} I guess so…and you have a decision.
The Universe:
{Jace nods} Yeah, well.. I was thinkin’ we could start with the argument and let Sebastian get back to his fairy tale.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Yes.. yes we can.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie looks at Sebastian} Fairy tale?
The Universe:
{Sebastian shakes his head} Ignore them. They talk out of their asses most of the time.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie glances over at Jace and Heather, then back to Sebastian} Okay. {smiles} So what are we going to do?
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles} Pick up where we left off before I had to go meet Simone and all that.
The Universe:
{Jace puts a hand on Heather’s back and starts down the hall with her} We’ll see you guys later.
The Universe:
{Jace grins} Say hi to grandma for us.
The Cosmos:
{Heather softly so only Jace can hear} He’s going to get you for that one. {louder} Later guys.
The Universe:
{Jace nods, still smiling, whispers back} Yeah. And it’s gonna *hurt*.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} But will it have been worth it?
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Heather} Damn right it will.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} You’ll have to tell me what he did.
The Universe:
{Jace nods} I will.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him} Do you really want to finish that argument?
The Universe:
{Jace looks at her} I thought we already did.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} okay.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} We’ll just have another one anyway.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} There is that too. But what about…the other stuff.. Did you want to talk more about that too?
The Universe:
{Jace looks at her} What’s “the other stuff”?
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him} Well.. um.. what’s going on with us.
The Universe:
{Jace shrugs} What’s there to talk about? You miss me and I’m probably bein’ turned so you won’t be my boss anymore.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at her} I’m gonna miss hangin’ out with the stoners and gettin’ high, though.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him} Are you sure this is what you want?
The Universe:
{Jace shakes his head} There’s good points and bad points on both sides of the question. {looks at her} I mean, what am I gonna do as a vampire but just hang out all night? On the other hand… who *wouldn’t* wanna graduate to bein’ a vampire?

The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him and smiles} There’s always something to do. You know that. {quietly} And you’ve worked long enough.
The Universe:
{Jace stops and looks at her, quietly} Why’ve you been pushin’ so hard for this? Really?
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him, very softly} Because my life is shit without you in it..
The Universe:
{Jace nods} You know this is probably gonna just open up a whole new world of shit for us to go through, right?
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} I’m pretty sure it will. You’ll have other girls… Probably lots of them.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at her} If I do this, I’m *only* gonna be doin’ it for you.
The Cosmos:
{Heather quietly} And that’s the wrong reason to be doing it. I want it for you. It’s amazing Jace. I want to share it with you but *only* if you want it too. If you don’t do it for you, you’ll end up resenting me. What really bites about all this is I wanted to be the one that changed you. Because I wanted to give you that.
The Universe:
{Jace shakes his head} Heather. Stop. {looks at her} This isn’t about *you* *or* what you want. I know what you want. You been pushin’ it for.. I don’t even know how long. And don’t tell me how I’m gonna feel later. What I’m gonna resent is if I do this and you just leave me again later and I’m stuck with forever without you in it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him} I know it’s not about me or what I want. It’s about *you* and what *you* want and I *still* don’t know.
The Universe:
{Jace nods} And every statement you make about it is “I want” and “I wanted” and how “I still don’t know” and the fuckin’ fact is if you’re so worried about *me* wantin’ it for *me*, then you’d stop for a minute and realize that if what *I* wanted mattered, you wouldn’t *still* be pushin’ me for it. Especially after it broke us up. And *that’s* why I’m fightin’ you on it. Because what *I* want hasn’t mattered enough for you to stop and think about what *you* givin’ it to me means to *me*. You’re only thinkin’ about what it means to *you*.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at her} If I do it because you wouldn’t stop pushin’ it, if I do it because you won’t let it go, then how am I doin’ it for me anyway and how is *that* a better reason?
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him} You think I haven’t thought about it? I have. I know that if you do this you’re giving up kids and getting high and hanging out with the *boys* and getting drunk and seeing the sun and all that other stuff. I *know*, because I’ve thought about it. {shakes her head} All right.. I won’t say another word about it. You doin’ this or not isn’t what broke us up…me bein’ your boss is what broke us up.
The Universe:
{Jace arches a brow} *Kids*? What the fuck are you on about kids for?
The Universe:
{Jace looks at her like she’s high} I don’t want *kids*.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him, smiles} I know.
The Universe:
{Jace rolls his eyes} Then why’d you bring it up like givin’ ’em up was a sacrifice?
The Cosmos:
{Heather rolls her eyes back at him} Because it’s one of the things I thought about when I was thinking about what you’d be giving up.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at her} There is only *one* reason for doin’ this that matters, Heather. Just one.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him} Tell me.
The Universe:
{Jace puts his hands on her shoulders, looks her in the eye, quietly} Bein’ with you.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him} Jace.. you’ve always had me.
The Universe:
{Jace presses his forehead to hers} That’s the only reason you should want me to do this and the only reason I should want to. I’m not talkin’ about that, baby. I’m talkin’ about forever. For real.
The Universe:
{Jace moves his hands to her face, rubs his thumb over her cheek, still quietly} It doesn’t matter how many women there are or come and go. I’ve only got one heart to give and it’s already taken.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him, her eyes shiny, blinks a tear from each eye that falls on to her cheeks}
The Universe:
{Jace kisses her forehead, lets her go, takes her hand and heads down the hall} Come on.
The Cosmos:
{Heather curls her fingers over his hand, and goes with him} Where are we going?
The Universe:
{Jace looks at her} My room. {smiles} We’ve got a lot of makin’ up to do.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Yes we do. A lot. SO much that I’m not even sure I’m going to make it back to mine.
The Universe:
{Jace nods} Good thing I wasn’t expectin’ you to. {smiles} Can you believe the *biggest* womanizer we’ve ever known is actually makin’ an *effort*?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Baby, are you talkin’ about you, Sebastian or Damien?
The Universe:
{Jace laughs} I was talkin’ about Sebastian.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles brighter} Holy fuck.. how gone is he?
The Universe:
{Jace grins at her} I’m half expectin’ him to tell her “I have crossed oceans of time to find you”.

The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Oh.. he does that and I’ll know she’s drugging him or something.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} Or somethin’. How good is librarian pussy to get *him* all.. considerate and shit? {looks at her} She’s a fuckin’ *librarian*, baby. What.the.hell. That is like *the* least cool profession *ever*.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him} Oh.. no shit. Not to mention the most boring.. she’s cataloging our books.. how many fucking books do we have?
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} Why the hell would you ask *me* about books?
The Universe:
{Jace laughs} Maybe we should ask Sebastian. Yanno.. since he goes to the *library* now.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} And *how* did she get by *Edward*?
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} That’s an easy one. He got himself a timid virgin.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} So? What? His cock doesn’t work anymore?
The Universe:
{Jace shrugs} Don’t know. Rumor is, she’s *still* a virgin. {looks at her} I will *never* understand dudes who get with virgins on *purpose*.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} I heard Lucien’s is too.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} Not for lack of tryin’. I heard she’s all but losin’ her mind because they haven’t been able to fuck yet and he’s not doin’ much better. I *also* saw them take off in his car earlier, headin’ towards town.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} But you know Genja fucked with him last night, right?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} I didn’t know that.. okay then what happened to him tonight was Karma biting him in the ass.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} Him *and* Eden because he had her helpin’ him when he kept “stoppin’ by with official business that just *has* to be discussed right *now*”.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at her} And that’s when he wasn’t randomly summoning him all night.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Beautiful. Oh my god.. he’s evil. And Shay was learning how to summon and kept summoning Ciara too.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} Yeah, I heard about that one, too. That was the night after, I think, so maybe *that* was last night and Genja was the night before.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} IT’s a wonder Genja hasn’t woken up staked.
The Universe:
{Jace laughs} No shit.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} You know what this means right?
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} What?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Chaos and drama for *days*.
The Universe:
{Jace laughs, nods} No shit.
The Universe:
{Edward comes down the hall toward them, smiles seeing them holding hands} Hey.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Hey.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Edward, smiles} S’up?
The Universe:
{Edward shrugs} Not much. {smiles} Glad to see you guys talking though.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Yeah.. we were just talking about castle happenings. You know.. Sebastian claimed the Librarian?
The Universe:
{Edward nods} I heard. The claiming, I mean. I was… apparently, too close to that end of the floor at the time. {looks at Jace} What happened with Gabe today?
The Universe:
{Jace shakes his head} You mean with Taryn, right?
The Universe:
{Edward nods} Yes. That’s what I mean.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Edward} Speaking of…where is your virgin?
The Universe:
{Jace smirks} She got all shitty with him because he didn’t save her *horses*.
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Heather} I’m actually on my way to find her. I just wanted to get a little more… information on what happened today before I talk to her about it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} I see. How’d you find out about that one?
The Universe:
{Edward looks at her like “really?”} The same way I hear about most of the things that go on around here during the day.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Alexei or your supersonic hearing.
The Universe:
{Edward smiles} Yes. Anyway, I’ll leave you to it. {summons Taryn} Have a good night. {heads down the hall}
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs, looks at Jace} Rut roh. Think she’s in trouble?
The Universe:
{Jace watches him go, to Heather} That was quick. {looks at Heather} Oh, yeah. I’m sure she’ll get a stern tear filled talking to.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs again} That was horrible.
The Universe:
{Edward over his shoulder as he walks down the hall} I heard that!
The Cosmos:
{Taryn walks out of the media room and toward Edward}
The Universe:
{Jace laughs, grabs Heather and drags her into his room}
