Gifts for Jilli
Gerard has always vaguely liked the idea of being a vampire, in much the same way he's always vaguely liked the idea of time travel, or of being a pirate - but it's only when he wakes up dead that he realises that not all his fans (or friends) are actually human. This is rather a shock to the system, but Gerard does his best to deal with the fact that he's now an undead American, and he's lucky enough to get a little help from an unexpected corner. Just as he thinks he's starting to get the hang of being a vampire, however, everything suddenly goes to hell in a handbasket, and before he knows it there are angry vampires slayers chasing him around LA, and an urgent appointment with the Fairy Queen looming before him...
A story about love, family, metamorphosis, art, trust and geekery.
PLEASE NOTE: I haven't ticked Rape or NonCon in the warnings section because I think that would be highly misleading - the story really isn't pornalicious, and nobody is sexually assaulted. Nevertheless, the first scene (in which Gerard is forcibly turned into a vampire) may be triggery for some readers on that basis, and the question of consent in regard to vampirism is addressed.
