    Summary

    Bertie is dallying with a chorus girl. Jeeves is not happy. In fact, he's jealous. Who knew that such an involvement would lead to so many complications? Who knew that Jeeves had a secret reason for being unavailable?

    Who knew Oofy Prosser could be persuaded to produce a West End musical? And why does Bertie always have to be Ginger Rogers? 

    This story turned out to be almost a musical...any chapter that references songs has the accompanying song video in it!

    Comments are most desired!

    Summary

    Sometimes Rhys liked to go out to seedy bars, where he could look and act like himself and he wouldn't have to worry about anyone recognizing him. It was the only thing that could make a life of corsetry and boring conversation with even more boring people seem even the slightest bit more bearable. On one of these such nights, Rhys runs into an American man named Jack Lawrence who immediately flirts up a storm and propositions him. Rhys is drawn in by Jacks' boldness and the way he sees him as he is and not how he seems to be to everyone else.

    Or
    In which Vampire Jack falls in love with Rhys while Jack slowly kills his way through half of Victorian London.
