"Are they okay, do you know if they suddenly came down with vampiric pregnancy? Do... do you possibly have children you didn't even know about?"

"I don't know. I never - perhaps I should visit them. And find out."

"Well, not now, all of the important parts are probably over anyway, and you're mine until we have this sorted out and and forever more besides," sniffs Yvette. "... Just two? Really? I'd thought that you'd had a whole... series of..." She waves her hand vaguely.

"I did."

Permalink

Oh, of course he ate them. Yvette whines, miserably. "... Great."

Permalink

Hug hug hug?

Permalink

Mhm, yep, hugs.

"God. What do we do."

Permalink

"We - get to America and figure out whether we can safely deliver this baby and if not..."

Wince. "Right. Uh. I'd have expected to miscarry before now if the child wasn't viable at all, but I'm just guessing and perhaps indulging in some wishful thinking. Drinking blood is I think on the whole a good sign? Since it means that there's - some proverbial communication of needs that I can act upon. Instead of. Not that. I think we should probably plan to need a cesarean section for me instead of the ordinary delivery method, if she has even a little bit of super strength as a fetus I do not think my pelvis would have a good time."

"- she?"

"... I don't know where that came from either," says Yvette, frowning. "I... have a very strong impression that the baby is a girl??"

Permalink

"...maybe she's a witch?"

Permalink

"Oh. Oh that would make sense with the hallucinations I've been having, wouldn't it. Oh damn, okay. What witch power even is that, some sort of communication thing?"

Permalink

"I don't know, you said you hallucinated being a vampire and drinking blood? Maybe she could be reading my memories and sending them to you."

Permalink

"James, love, I think that's a bit too many steps for a child that's perhaps a couple inches long," she snorts. "It doesn't do the confusing aesthetic thing that witch powers seem to have, either."

Permalink

He shrugs. "Speculating."

Permalink

"Mmhmm. Try to keep your speculations realistic." She leans into him and gives a little hum. "I... really hope she'll be okay?? I'll probably be okay regardless, right, we have emergency turning available to us and it can save humans from the brink of death?"

"So long as... they don't die before the venom takes effect, yes."

Permalink

“Okay. And it’s distributed by bloodstream?”

Permalink

"I assume so..."

Permalink

".... I'm wondering that if things start to get dangerous, if we should get the venom into my bloodstream first, and then, uh, remove her from me, so that we don't have the danger of me dying in the middle of the whole thing. But that introduces the danger of transmission of venom to our child, which could just. Kill her."

She gets a very comprehensive and artful vision of an infant ripping its way out of her heavily pregnant stomach. "Augh. I guess thanks for the heads up, kiddo, but augh."

Permalink

"- hm?"

Permalink

"Uh. So I think an ordinary birth is just. Not going to happen at all. I got a, a witch vision of her, um. Directly getting out. With her teeth."

Permalink

"Yep! Yep that was approximately my reaction! Look, dear, she has your patience!"
