of all of vampires various powers I've always found the lack of reflection probably the weirdest if you actually saw it in real life. It's not flashy and obviously supernatural its just wrong. Although still, Joan's being tackles as usual.
and hey Teddy finally got his own clothes (he's been wearing Drake's spares and the stuff he stole off a clothes line up until now)
re Onasaki: wood carving can be very soothing ^_^
re zetina: oh, the killing wasn't abstract, but joan's knowledge of it was. She knew in the back of her mind that as a dragon and soldier he had probably killed people, but hadn't had to deal with it directly up until now.
re AyoWolf: don't worry, a bit of silliness is on the horizon to shake everyone (or at least Teddy and Joan) out of their funk.
re Bearagirl119: Teddy can be quite insightful when he's not moping in the background.
re ScreechTheMighty: uhg. the popularity of the Twilight series has put me in a bit of a tough place in that according to my own rules if enough people buy into a story it starts influencing reality, so either I have to break my own system or admit that somewhere there's a strain of vampires that do sparkle. I've decided that they did exist but the other vamps hunted them to extinction because they were kinda... embarrassing.
re XxWhiterosesxX: Why, they're going to go shopping! ^_^
re Azhtann: I'm incredibly jealous of you right now, and props for an awesome name choice (I suck at naming pets, my gecko remained simply "the gecko" for the 5 years I owned it)
re Satu-aka: ^_^ there actually is a point to the fishies. Drake will be sure to fill everyone one in when he makes a reappearance.
re Skarlog and Skittsue (sorry about your computer)I actually ended up buying a hat like Drake's (but red) because I kept loosing feeling in my ears during the winter. It's quite fluffy. Luckily for the shopkeeper dragons tend to prefer cows and deer to humans (the higher up the food chain you go the gnarlier meat gets). They tend to eat people only if they're real hungry or to, you know, make a point.
