She grins and gives Nausicaa a little sideways-hug.

"You got a plan?  A cover story and a, a non-sketchy way to start asking questions and shit?"

Permalink

"The outline of one, but it could use refinement. I'm new in town. Got recommended by Vanessa a while back, but we drifted apart and now I'm trying to reconnect. Might position myself as Gaara's arm-candy, in case anyone notices I'm human. Probably will pretend to be vapid and silly. Gaara's gonna lean on her blood-demon heritage - maybe we can do two birds with one stone, she says she's looking for her mystery grandparent?"

Permalink

"Maybe, but do blood demons have anything to do with vampires?"

Permalink

"Neither of us actually knows that! Giles might? Gaara could say she's exhausted other avenues?"

Permalink

"Hmm, if you're going to pretend to be - arm candy - then maybe Gaara should be the one to say Vanessa recommended the place to."

Permalink

"Good idea."

Permalink

"Thanks.  - Do you know if Sand Demons have any taste for - human flesh?"  She shivers a little.  "I guess she could say she gets it from the blood demon side, since no one knows what kind of demon it is exactly."

Permalink

"We may want to double check that, like, every known demon associated with spontaneous human blood isn't famously not inclined to eat humans, but I might be being paranoid.  - You know, if Gaara just constantly creates human blood in sand form vampires may want to kidnap her to feed from.  This place especially, if they're trying to keep up a steady supply to sell to lots of vampires at once.  Is it human blood or animal blood or just, you know, blood-not-otherwise-specified, somehow."

"- She has a weird sense for bloods and the default spontaneously appearing stuff is demon blood, which at least smells gross. If she's killed someone with her sand she can push their blood out, but, like, she doesn't have to do that. We weren't thinking she'd be dripping blood places, anyways, just maybe make clear that's the kind of part-demon she is..."

Permalink

"She'd be demonstrating the capability, and it might be a capability that they want access to, though.  But yeah they might not like demon blood.  We'd have to hit the books or ask Giles probably."

Permalink

"Let me check my notes..."

She pulls out a notebook and starts leafing through it.

Permalink

"There's probably a bunch I'm not thinking of, too, but - I don't want to leave this too long. Not while my family's in danger."

Permalink

"Yeah, we are kind of on a deadline.  I'll let you know if I come up with any great ideas or catastrophic failure modes this afternoon, but I'm not gonna ask you to delay."

Permalink

Kaylee nods.

"...It doesn't seem like vampires usually go in for demon blood any more than animal blood, for what that's worth."

Permalink

"And the ones I've talked to seem to really hate animal blood."

Permalink

"No luck persuading anyone to - keep kosher?"

Permalink

"I got last guy to promise to try discarded blood from blood banks. And suggested finding people who're into that, but he seemed skeptical."

Permalink

She nods.  "Are they - anything like Mr. Giles said they would be?"

Permalink

"They honestly seem to kind of suck at lying so far, and the two I've talked to were - kind of didn't feel committed? Like, evil version of someone who does volunteer work because it'll look good on their resume. Gaara was more dedicated to being an asshole."

Permalink

Tag doesn't laugh but he makes the "tss" sound through slightly parted teeth that sometimes indicates dry amusement in very low-key people.

Permalink

She nods.  "I - don't know what to do with that analogy, really."  She giggles weakly.  "Fingers crossed, though."

Permalink

"Maybe if we make being evil really inconvenient? But, yeah."
