For Those Who Came In Of Late:
This is the latest installment in what began as my entry in the Young Adult Vampire Novel Challenge.

If you don't read fanfic, this ain't. If you don't read Twilight, there's nobody here who sparkles.

There is, however, an alternate, quasi-steampunkish USA, where cricket is one of the most popular sports, fast food consists mostly of sausages and pies, and the dollar is divided into ten shillings of ten pence each. In this world, one finds Shawnee State very approximately where, in our world, one finds the State of Ohio. And in Ludington City, Shawnee State, one finds Dermot O'Donovan, Stanislava Morrison, and their newfound friend and high school classmate, the mysterious and occasionally anachronistic Ashley Mundy.

Chapter One.
Chapter Two.
Chapter Three.
Chapter Four.
Chapter Five.
Chapter Six.
Chapter Seven.
Chapter Eight.
Chapter Nine.
Chapter Ten.
Chapter Eleven.
Chapter Twelve.
Chapter Thirteen.
Chapter Fourteen.

1290 words for this bit; 14,300 words total. Terrifying.
The sun was beginning to set when they rode home at last. As they neared Ashley's house, she ceased chattering and grew quiet. It's as if she's planning on asking us something, Stanislava thought. I wonder what? To stay the night and sleep in her bed? I can imagine her saying that we'd chaperone each other well enough... No, of course not. She hoped they'd not gone too far by hugging Ashley, both of them at once. I'd hate to frighten her away from Dermot. They'd make such a lovely pair.
