Stay In Vegas

Postby The Hellion » Thu Feb 18, 2010 6:27 pm

Brief
Dr. Thunderfoot and Dr. Gunn have been assigned to protect Lillian Dubois and her husband Emile Dubois. They are close personal friends of mine, Lillian was one of the first people with a power whom I ever encountered and she didn't even know it. We have stayed in contact for years but now there's a problem - she has been plagued by bad luck at the main casino she runs in Las Vegas, its turned to the point where I suspect someone has decided to make her luck for her, and they are making it all bad, trying to kill her and her husband. Dr. Gunn and Dr. Thunderfoot will be undercover as chaperone's to CoffinCon a vampire convention in The Regal, Lilly and Emile's main property, you will help them only by keeping your eyes open, you will NOT attempt to intervene in any action unless given express permission and you will stay at the Convention unless told to do otherwise.

Normally I wouldn't send students into a potential danger zone but I had the passes to the Con and you all signed up.


The Regal rose up in a sheer wall of lavish decadence. The limo let the students out onto the marble steps up the carpetted stairs to the polished desk where the smiling concierge gave them mints and greetings. Dr. thunderfoot signed them in and handed them their passes. "Dr. Gunn and I are going to meet the Dubois'" she said. "Go to your rooms and unpack" she handed Dani the room assignment chart. "Dinner has already been ordered for you so that should arrive"

"No one in anyone elses room after 10" Dr. Gunn added cheerfully.
Dani nodded, eyed passing vampire clad teenagers and then sighed. "If they didn't have Kelley Armstrong at the con I'd not be here" she muttered as she watched the teachers walking away.

Dani looped the laminated pass on a black lace cord around her neck, it displayed a silver outlined blood red coffin on a black patterned background. "Okay so lets see...roll call?" she ventured

In a pair of sweat pants and a singlet Cassandra is really not dressed for the con. Of course if Krilla dropped the illusion and let the con goers see her real form she’d stand out a bit more but it’s a vampire convention not Sci Fi.

“While I’m here I’ll be handling communications. If you see something odd concentrate on me as hard as you can and I’ll either relay the message or patch you through to the teachers.”


Where Krilla is dressed plainly to avoid attention Travis is perhaps attracting a bit too much. Stretched across his chest and ridiculously tight (it actually belongs to the five foot tall Decicrate after all) is a t-shirt emblazoned with a slogan.

‘Then Buffy staked Edward the End.’

“A couple of friends of mine have heard rumors that there will be a few vampire cults recruiting here. Mostly they’ll either be LARPers or your garden variety nut jobs but on the off chance some of the real deal have slipped in to take advantage of the anonymity let me know if you find anything.”

A crowd of angry Twilight fans look like they’re about to mob him but he glares at them and they wisely wander off.

“Without telling the teachers please.”

Cam sighed, he was wearing a T-shirt that read "Spike and Dru We Love You" and leaning against a pillar. "Vampires we have several at school I mean - seriously" he eyed a girl who was oggling him. "Okay what is with that?" he gestured at her.

"You look like Malcolm" Ulla responded, she was decked out in Buffy gear and suitably gothic skirts and boots. Very uncharacteristic honestly. "From Milly Davids' "Vampire Creek" Series. He's all surly and cold as well"

"Oh....great"

Travis suddenly became aware of a group of girls and guys crowding around him. "Oh and Travis looks like Brad the torn poet engulfed in anguish by his vampire nature needing the pure love of Melissa Davidson the protagonist to redeem him"

Dani mouthed the name of the protagonist and then the author and rolled her eyes

Kiran looked around at the different swarms of fans. "I still can't believe some of these vampire fan clubs exist." He wore simple jeans and a black shirt and zip up hoodie, his hair getting rather long and held in the back in a loose ponytail.

"Come on, Twilight is amazing! You can be Edward, just bend the light to look like him and sparkle in sunlight!" Marco smiled, decked out in a Edward Cullen shirt and tight fitting jeans. Kiran smirked and unzipped his hoodie to reveal the slogan "Team Jacob". Marco glared at Kiran.

"Werewolves are better. Not pansy bloodsuckers," Kiran scanned the area, making sure he was prepared for anything.

Ruffled black hair, animated eyes and an arrogant smirk with a faint black tinge to them stroll through the crowd toward kiran. Attached is a red shirt with the two top buttons undone and also the cuffs. His neck is sporting a black and silver collar with two imitation bite marks on his left wrists. Cosmetic fangs are in his mouth and tight black trousers with leather formal boots finish the look. When it comes to conventions Thomas likes to blend into the crowd. Receiving several looks of interest he smiles and let's them see his fangs with a playful look on his face. Who said he wouldn't be able to mix work and pleasure?

He sneaks up to Kiran, spins him around quickly and goes to bite him. "Rargh!"


Alex is sitting at the overpriced bar, drinking a coke and observing. He's sporting a crucifix and a stake, his costume an amateur slayer. He's keeping tabs on events by using his baseline telepathy to pick up surface thoughts. The only problem is that in a room swarmed by people, eavesdropping tends to be quite difficult.

Travis is having a crisis of faith. Normally he can deal with crowds by glaring at them till they go away but here it just seems to be working in reverse. The down side is they all seem to be relatively normal people so it’s not like he break torrents of ice or snow.


Krilla leans against the wall and covers the bottom of her face with a hand trying not to smile.


Through a gap in the crowd Travis shoots Dani a look.

Save me!

The temperature around him dropping but it doesn’t seem to be clearing them away.

Dani herself however is being waylaid by fans of all shapes and sizes. "Oh wow shes like Ephemera from blood rain"

"No dude shes Belinda from Vampire Creek"

"Oh wow she's perrrrrfect"

Dani Floundered in the midst of the fans. Cam sighed and grasped Alex. He put his hands on his temples. "Mind if I borrow your powers to play projector for my film?"

The flickering image of a male form composed entirely of static crackled into life, flickering to female every so often.

"Angel!"
"Edward Cullen!"
"Buffy!"
"Juliet Landau!"
"George Clooney!"
"Mom youre humiliating me here..."

the fans pursued the flickering figure. "Thank you Alex" Cam said. "you were ever so helpful"

Dani gestured towards the elevator. "Quick theyve realised its gone! Go! Go! Go!"

Like soldiers underfire they dashed to the large elevator and dived in

In the back of the elevator Travis’ pale even for him and actually shaking a little.

Krilla pats him on the arm gently and he flinches a little.

“Hey they’re gone now. You okay?”

He slowly shakes his head.

“No, no I’m not.”

She raises an eyebrow, well actually she doesn’t have eyebrows but the image she’s projecting raises one.

“Why? It wasn’t that bad.”

He shoots her a look.

“Oh really? Well for the record when I left this morning I was wearing underwear.”

She actually flickers between Krilla and Cassandra in shock.

“You mean…?”

“Yes.”

“But your pants! How did they?”

“I don’t know and I don’t want to think about it.”

Dani checked her clipboard. "Okay, me, Ulla and Krilla share the larger room, Thomas and Marco in the one next to us, Travis and Alex, next to them and across the hall" she blinked. "Kiran and Cam"

Cam had already figured that one out. "Can I sleep in the parking lot instead?"
"Dr. Gunn is staying in a room near the Dubois penthouse" Dani explained. "this is how it evens out"

"Seriously my REM cycles are warped anough without throwing him in on them" Cam snorted

"Oh grow up" Dani sighed. "This could be a bonding opportunity"

"Or a tragic accident where a young light wielder falls to his demise seven times" Cam growled.

Dani clipped him across the ear

"You're welcome." Alex mumbles across telepathically, he hated his weakness to empathy. He gets up and walks towards another elevator, making it seem full so he didn't have to share one. "What floor are we on boss? And who am I with?" he asks Dani over a mindlink.

"Youre with Travis and we're on floor 27, middle of the road really" sighed Dani. "Not too high not too low in the grand scheme of the hotel. Now we're not allowed go to the casino but the con has a few things on, like a showing of the original buffy movie, a panel with Milly Davids, dramatic readings of Bram Stoker......and Twilight" thats all over the next three hours

"Sorry Thomas, but I prefer to not be a vampire werewolf," Kiran smiled, "Nice outfit." He ran with him to the elevator and heard Dani announce room assignments. "Marco isn't too bad," Kiran explained to Thomas, "Just take control of the conversion he strikes up and lead it somewhere unhappy and he'll decide to go to bed."

"Uh oh, Thomas will kill me," Marco said to himself.

"Don't worry Cam, I don't snore," Kiran smiled at the depressed boy, "And it takes awhile for me to go to bed."

"I'm on Team Jacob" Tommy said flatly before high fiving Kiran. "Edward has way too much eye shadow on his eyes and also I love Sookie Stackhouse! Bill is interesting!"

"I dont sleep" Cam responded. "I just piggy back dreams...and yours will either be an episode of Lazytown or a Panic at the disco video" he pushed a strand of hair out of his eyes.

Dani groaned. "Tommy you're rooming on the other side of the girls" (OOC: With whoever else comes along if they are not Noah)

"Except for how he ultimately gets kicked out of the series" Cam sighed. "I read the series on an intercontinental flight - she is almost as bad as Anita Blake for being hung up on sex...though no one gets it quite as warped as Laurel K Hamilton."

The doors opened on their floor and allowed them out, Dani gave everyone their card keys and sighed. "okay on we go get your stuff put away and we can go register at the con"

"I enjoy the shifters even more than Bill though, who I think Sookie should forgive, but I think it's ridiculous the idea of choosing a main animal to shift to" Tommy said to Cam
