    Summary

    Martin’s eyes trailed the veins of Jon’s neck. He kissed the soft skin over his pulse.

    Then he bit down.

    Jon cried out and jerked away. Martin blinked, then slapped his hand over his mouth.

    -

    Martin is a vampire now. It isn't great. Jon tries to help.

    Summary

    “How … how many people have you … kissed?"

    At that, Martin’s eyes snapped wide open, but Jon looked as if he were asleep.

    “I … I, uh, don’t know, really. Four?”

    One eye peeked open. “You’re not counting Tim, are you?”

    Martin chuckled. “No, no, I don’t think those kinds of kisses count.”

    “Good.” Jon closed his eyes again, then frowned. “How … how many would it be if you … did count them?”

    Summary

    Once upon a time, in a faraway land, there was a man who wanted to save the world, and instead, nearly destroyed it.

    Before he was forced to commit this great evil, the man fled— but the failed ritual inflicted him with a terrible curse, and he concealed himself inside a dark, lonesome manor. As the years passed and the solitude ate him, he never ventured to the outside world, ever again.

    But that was alright. The man preferred it this way. For there remained not one person, living or dead, who was better for having known Jonathan Sims.

    Summary

    Martin finds them eventually, tapered white wax, twenty or thirty of them beside a box of ancient (but dry) matches, and a little brass dish with a slot that just about fits the base of the candle. He feels like Scrooge, fitting the whole thing together, tucking a few more into his pocket before striking a match -

    Which immediately goes out.

    “Oh, fuck you,” Martin says into the murk.

    Again -

    And again, the fire vanishes. Quick and efficient as a breath. He shivers in the sudden cold.

    ***

    Martin Blackwood inherits an old country house, but there are more inhabitants than he first realises. When eventually the paranormal occurrences become too frequent and dangerous for him to ignore, he has to turn to a group of misfit ghost hunters for help.
