I love the Donor House. I forgot how much until I saw all the stories I loved on my website, so this one is a Donor House list. Living at the House are a group of vampires who are trying to live alongside humans and this is about how things work out.
 
The first story is about a vegetarian who became a vampire and the one that chose to help her: Robert: Getting Leah to the House.

Then we have a story about the first addict who found his way to the House (because being bitten is addictive): Caleb: Entering the House.

And finally we have a story about a vampire who saves one of his old friend's daughters after she's in an accident: Rex: Saving Melody.

I’ve been wanting to write this for ages and I’ve finally got round to it.

Anne stared at her father. “No.” She shook her head. “Henry is bad enough mortal.” That was something she knew she’d only be safe saying at Hever, because everyone who worked there was loyal to her family, which was why what happened was still a secret. “I don’t believe any King should be immortal, but Henry…” It was impossible not to think of the damage he’d caused when he tried to get over her by using her sister. “This is a mistake.”

It was disappointing, but not a surprise. Kerry had sent off her application on a whim, thinking the Donor House would be the best place to find her saviour, and she was right about that. Both Nick and Alice had agreed that if she was looking for a specific vampire then the House was where she was most likely to find him. The problem was she didn’t know him. All she had was a memory of his voice from the night he stopped her from being taken by the gatherers, which meant that no one could help her. Even a name would have been a start, because it wasn’t unusual for wandering vampires to meet hundreds of their kind, but she didn’t even have that.

The pounding of my head told me what had happened. It was exacerbated by the sounds of many people doing their best to keep the tears from flowing, tears of fear, tears of grief, tears of anger. Some were crying, although that seemed to be the children who’d found themselves in the same position as me unable to hide the way they were feeling, and I can’t help thinking it was hearing them, hearing their pain, that made me do something I wouldn’t have done otherwise. Or maybe I would. Honestly, I’m not sure exactly why I made the decision, when I always promised myself I wouldn’t pass on the curse of being a blood drinker, but I knew it was the only way for me to protect myself from becoming a slave to someone who couldn’t possibly understand what I was.

For most vampires there was a slightly sexual element to feeding. Jack knew that, but feeding had never been like that to him, even before he had a name for what he was. That knowledge was one of the reason he was grateful he'd been turned into a vampire. If he'd just lived his human life then he would have died without that and back then his life had been very difficult. His family expected him to marry and have children just like everyone else. They didn't get it when he tried to explain to them that he didn't want to have children. In all honesty he didn't want to get married either because he didn't think that anyone would understand why he didn't have any interest in sex.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] ysabetwordsmith's prompt: a vampire from the Donor House is involved in a drunk-driving car accident. How will the other vampires and donors back at the house respond?

It had been a slow night until Grant was brought in by the police. Nadia looked at the vampire, who glared sullenly back at her, and then at the two human policemen. One of them smiled at her, which was unusual, but not exactly unwanted, so she smiled back, before turning her attention to why a vampire would have been brought back to the donor house by the police.

This month the spotlight is on Nick, from the Donor House collection.

What would you like to know about Nick? Ask me any questions you can think of and I will endeavour to answer them. All answers will be posted under the tag character spotlight and linked to under the questions because I don't want the post to get too cluttered or have too many spoilers posted here.

Tell me what stories you'd like to see. Would you like to see what happens during his life before Alice? Would you like to see him meeting other characters in this collection? More interaction with the donors at the donor house? What he's like as a vampire?

Written for [livejournal.com profile] ysabetwordsmith's prompt: 'what would happen if a group of trick-or-treaters accidentally found themselves at the donor house'.


There was a moment when all Alice could do was stare. As it was Halloween she'd made sure that she was on the reception desk, which gave the receptionist an unexpected night off, just in case someone turned up that she didn't want in the house. Halloween brought out all the creepiest vampires. What she hadn't expected was the group of children that walked though the door. As a general rule most children in the local area avoided the donor house. She couldn't help smiling at them when she realised that they were all dressed in costumes and that meant they were obviously out trick-or-treating.

If it hadn't been for Nick pleading with her to go with him Alice probably never would have visited Echoes of Alexandria. She'd walked past it a couple of times but had never been able to gather up the courage to actually step into the human-run bookshop. Being a vampire made everything different. There were humans who made it very obvious that vampires should not be in their shop, even though they couldn't put up a sign any more that said 'no vampires', and then there were humans who didn't have a problem. It was just a case of knowing which shops had humans in who weren't anti-vampire.
