book cover

At Weston College, Manilla, the openly lesbian artist on campus finds her heart's desire realized when a stunning dancer, Ginny shows an interest. Their relationship thrives in spite of the dancer homophobic and powerful father, and the disapproval of many of their collegiates. But their relationship reaches a new challenge when they meet a dark and sinister woman who shows an interest in Ginny. When Ginny starts to undergo a disturbing transformation, it seems unlikely that their love is enough. Perhaps they can gain strength from Manilla's equally mysterious advisor.

Qvamp says:

This story is a rewrite of the novel Virago, which is based on a short story by the same name.

The story is mostly lesbian in nature, and focus on a long-term lesbian relationship between two collegiates. However, the 'evil' vampire enjoys working through others and also introduces a gay prostitute to the story, who slashes his johns to help the vampire to feed.

Both vampires in this story are identified as lesbian, and the story has significant girl/girl sex.

This story, like a number of others in the genre, is a way to vent the authors childhood sexual abuse, outside of that, it includes some unusual historical references. It's a relatively easy ready, but nothing inspired.
