Amusing. Lovely. Cute.

Nicholas finds a vampire in his basement. The vampire needs blood. So he invents a blood machine with the help of a witch.

"Looking better, Bill! Glad to see you've chosen to stay with us. This is Violet, and she might be able to help you."

He pushed himself back in his seat, sprawling a little. "How can she help me? Make a donation, perhaps?" He looked at her hungrily with a smirk on his lips, and Nicholas was highly dismayed to hear Violet giggle next to him.

Quirky and fu

Domashita is a favourite and I enjoyed this quirky little story, I think though that reading her later works has spoiled me, on re-read I wanted more from it, it wasn't quite enough and I'd probably rate it lower.

A romance novel loving Vampire named Bill, a magical contraption and a timely shout of 'TEETH' there's plenty to amuse.
OMG ... this story is just so lovely (and it feels complete, even if it's only 8k).

Nicholas finds a vampire named Bill, in his basement. Bill is just one adorable vampire. He's so polite -- he cries when he reads romance novels *awwww*. I enjoyed the attempts that Nicholas and his arcanist friend, Violet, do to make an artifical blood for Bill. I enjoy the banter between the three -- and the little sex between Nicholas and Bill near the end is fun too!


""Teeth!!" Nicholas yelped at that very
Another really, really nice story by Domashita Romero - though not one of her best.

The atmosphere is lovely, warm, inviting and very visual, but the time and place in which the story is set are not defined; however, that could very well be intentional.
What bothered me is that this story is really short, and the problem is not that it's so good that I wanted more - it's that there was not nearly enough development. DR can always characterise her MCs perfectly in just a couple paragraphs - that's
