Scent

All Venatori have keen senses. Being half human you are lucky to get parts of the Venatori genetics at all. Some Minorem don’t get any unique abilities of the Venatori. Other’s get partial, and some on very rare occasions keep all Venatori abilities. I’m like most Minorem. I have heightened senses, the ability to heal…

Unwanted Partner – Walker

Dae’lin’s office wasn’t too far from the encounter with my father. I knocked on the closed door and the voice that made me jump all my life called out, “Enter.” And I had no choice but to obey. She still made me jump at her commands though now I could ignore then if I wanted…

Replacement

If you go back to last year you’ll notice a different love interest in my life. Namely Dorian Vega. Dorian has gone through many iterations. Even more so than me. He’s always been older than me. He’s always watched me grow up. This dynamic gave some people issues since Dorian is essentially my father figure….

Apple Pie

This was a second contest that AJ entered. However, we can’t find any record she ever did. Though we both swear to it. The musty smell of the cavern mingled with the apple pie Nox was licking off of his fingers. His mother insisted on going first, “This my hunt. My rules.” Nox rolled his…

The Scent of Safety

AJ wrote the first time I met Dorian.  I’d provide you the link where it’s published, but it reveals too much information so instead I’ll repost it here. Pretty sure it’s not any where here yet. My mother was angry at me and I didn’t know why. The airport was a long way from home,…

Filter

I tried to find something other than a boring topic to discuss so I started looking through AJ’s world building site at what was built and what wasn’t. While AJ already talks about Ad Aetatem I’m going to expand upon it. The link basically talks about the rituals. I’ll talk about mine specifically and what…

Unwanted Partner – My Father

I took the stairs two at a time for 28 flights. It was nothing. I’d done the entire ground to roof before. Some days I did it instead of going for a run. It was still early for my appointment with Dae’lin, but I went that direction anyway. The Venatori headquarters was a place that…

Simple

I’m running late on this one. You’d think the prompt itself would provide a simple enough response but no, it has to be complicated in my head. The fact that AJ has a new stress worthy project on her plate doesn’t help either. Sometimes it’s the simple things that matter the most. I know love…

The Ten Bloodlines

Over the weekend I spoke about what came from the Primeval Vampires I glossed over the ten blood lines and said I’d expand more on what I know. The Venatori don’t really care to know beyond how to kill a vampire, but I’m not most Venatori and I have a close personal friend that has…

Blogger Recognition Award

Woah! Someone likes my ramblings well enough to nominate me for a recognition award. Before I get into it here are the requirements for accepting the award. If you too want to be a part of this chain then follow the rules as stated below: Write a post to show your award. Give a brief…

Devastation

I speak well of Il Cane – the vampire assassin of the vampire world. To quote some unknown book or show I’ve forgotten: When things go bump in the night she is what bumps back. Il Cane or to her family Cari Giovanni. She was born in the late eleventh century. She lost her family…

Unwanted Partner – Leave Taking

We were all in the car by 7am. I got to sit next to Naya in the back seat and we had the cutest dialog half way to the City before she drifted off to sleep. Jace drove into work everyday. I don’t think I could manage that. I didn’t like driving in cities, and…

Oversight

The Venatori were supposed to be the oversight to Clandestine Providence Laws, but who watches to make sure they don’t abuse things. It was technically the Aeternus who were the oversight comity – which was the career path of the Venatori. That is still the case if you call the hunters the venatori. AJ once…

From Primeval Vampires

Since the beginning the Primeval Vampires have been forbidden from turning humans into lesser beings like themselves. But as the stories I’ve been told goes – Lila, the favorite daughter of Lilith and Cain, had different plans. But I need to go a little bit more into the depths of human religion to tell the…

Daevas & Marionettes

I started a lengthy talk on the races in my world and what they are capable of. This post is a second in that series. I don’t know how many we’ll get into before the post gets too long winded, but we’ll start and keep going. The original races are Humans, Dragons, Primeval Vampires and…

Exposure

Today might end up with a long lecture like post. I could talk about photography, but the I suck at taking pictures, and know next to nothing about it. But the prompt did incite an actual topic I’ve only hinted – life as a Venatori. We have very little exposure to the things normal kids…

Family Life – Nightmares

The darkness gave way to images – images that were always darker than the surrounding blackness. How it was possible I don’t know, but it was suffocating and the red glowing eyes came as they did every night for as long as I could remember. They came alone in the silence of the darkness wielding…

Overworked

I don’t think I’ve ever been overworked. I have one case at a time usually – and if I have more than one it’s usually connected to the others. If anything we are underworked. I mean how many people go rogue. And with so many hunters in New York City there are always plenty of…

Aesthetic

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Concerning the beauty of things is the definition of Aesthetic or at least one of them. I had to look it up to get a better understanding of what I was going to talk about. Honestly I’m still not sure. And then I remember the numberous things…

Invitation

This sparked images of weddings and since I’m not exactly the typical type guy with typical partners I don’t envision a wedding is in my future. A permanent partner yeah, but I don’t see the whole white wedding and walking down the aisle type thing going on. I’m not inclined to marry a woman… I…
