"Light of my life, this is emphatically not funny."

Permalink

"Oh, come on, that was a little funny," grumbles Yvette, pouting. "And humor is a perfectly good coping mechanism."

Permalink

Whimper.

Permalink

"Sorry." She pats his cheek. "I'll stop." Sigh. Even though it's such a great coping mechanism, and that was hilarious. But yes, serious talking time now, mhm.

"So, I. I don't want to just... not even try to save her. She's. She's our baby, we made her. C-section to remove her when it seems like she's big enough to live through it?" She gets a vision of James ripping her open with his teeth, and winces. "With... your teeth... apparently..."

"Love, I do not think I would be able to hold myself back if I actually personally tasted your blood right there at the time."

Permalink

“Right then. So, rip a tooth out and use it as a makeshift scalpel?”

Permalink

"- oh. Yes, I suppose that would work."

Permalink

Yvette squints, and tries very hard to induce a witch vision to see if that’ll work. ... nope, nothing. Just her perfectly ordinary vision and her overactive imagination. Eugh.

“How do you plan to turn me, though, if you can’t ever taste my blood? Especially quickly. Or is it just, uh, that setting.”

Permalink

"Normally drinking from - anyone, anything, involves only as much contact with blood as I want it to. If I were to be cutting you open with my teeth there would be... more of that."

Permalink

“Oh. I see. The difference between brief to the point bites and making out with my stomach with your teeth. Gotcha. Do you think you can do multiple bites at major arteries to get a lot of venom in me quickly?”

Permalink

James swallows dryly. "Yeah, that should be... possible."

Permalink

Yvette nods, then rubs her husband's back. "This should be planned out and decided before we actually do it, to prevent the whole thing from being an emergency, so. We'd have time to send you off hunting to get filled with semi-delicious shark blood beforehand. Are there other methods of getting venom into a bloodstream besides biting, to maybe spare you? I know venom, uh, melts through. A lot."

She knows how she learned this fact, but she is of the opinion that the how is not the reader's business, so the narration does not expand upon this and will let the reader come to their own conclusions.

"If there is any material my venom doesn't burn through other than my own skin, I don't know it," he says, sounding apologetic.

Permalink

"Okay, but it takes time for it to burn through things, right? I'm not saying something that would stand up long term, I'm saying a vial and a needle that can last for five minutes for you to spit into, and then inject into me. I guess it'd probably give me a higher dose of iron than I might like, or something, but uh. I don't think that'll be my biggest problem."

Permalink

"...yeah. Possibly."

Permalink

"But then I'd also be adding complications to a thing you can actually just do by biting me... You're very sure you can bite me multiple times without killing me?"

Permalink

"Yes."

Permalink

"Okay. Then I'll stop fretting about that. I guess. And instead I can just obnoxiously hang around you every waking moment, because that is so incredibly different from what we'd been doing before."

Permalink

"Almost like we are newlyweds or something."

Permalink

"Almost! Weird how that works."

Permalink

"You marry someone once and they go ahead and start thinking you should stay together forever. Madness."

Permalink

“Mhm. Almost like it was in the vows or something.”

Permalink

"Funny how that goes."

Permalink

“Quite. … God I’m now so glad I was silly and decided to wait for marriage, can you imagine me getting pregnant with a half vampire baby while I was wedding planning? Or earlier? I feel so retroactively justified in wanting to have you all to myself with zero distractions!”
