Tribunal, Life and Death

I faced my worst fear last night. I faced the place where I died and the Tribunal that ordered my death. And knowin’ these things, I’ve started to realize that I want to improve my position in this world. I can’t say too much ’bout the Tribunal but the horror of seein’ a vampire’s fangs ripped out and knowin’ you could be there if you did somethin’ wrong or bad? Changed my mind completely about my unlife. I stood up, looked The Magister in the eye and answered his questions truthfully. He said I showed ‘bravery beyond my years’ – I guess that’s what you say to someone who ordered your turning – but I was scared to second death inside. I can’t believe how supportive Bill was for me. I could tell it was hard for him to be back there too. Havin’ me as a punishment ain’t easy for him but his offer of goin’ to school was very kind.

So I’ve decided I need to go for a while. A week, maybe a bit more. Bill and I had a long discussion last night about where I wanted to start out and I really think I’d be good goin’ into fashion design. That’s where New York comes in. There’s a school called the Vampire Art Institute of America (VAIA) there. One of the first of it’s kind in the world to open and cater to the education of vampires. It specializes in art subjects like photography or fine arts or fashion… but there are also some courses you can take with vampire private tutors. English or maths and stuff.

Anton "Ace" LeVinThe vampire I spoke with last night, Anton LeVin, is the Sheriff of Area 7 and he specializes in fashion design and modelling. He’s very interested to see me and enjoyed some of the sketches I sent to his office. I googled him and his fashion is amazin’; not to mention he is politically active in achievin’ equal rights for vampires. I really think this could be a good experience for me.

I wish I didn’t have to leave for an entire week without Hoyt or my friends. I’m gonna miss them so much while I’m gone. Hoyt is my entire world…

So for now, this is goodbye to Bon Temps for a week of hello New York. It’s a big world out there and baby vamp is takin’ her very first steps in it. Wish me luck.

  1. I am so happy you are fine and you know what? Go kick the big city’s ass and have a blast. Anton seems like he could show you a few things, and have a wonderful time. We’ll miss your pool table dancin’ self though. Love – Ammerie
