An Unexpected Gift Drabble (PG13)

Postby wollstonecraft61 » Thu Apr 30, 2009 9:21 pm

Thank you, Josef. I know I have bitched on end all of these 55 years but thank you. Why?

You have helped me see that the man and vamp are one and the same, not two struggling for dominion.

You have given me back my Beth. I am now able to be the vampire she knew I was, to protect her like I protected her as a child.

You have granted a request as a brother, changing me back to what I was.

But most of all, thanks for letting me make the choice, not making the choice for me.

It was Mick's choice that does make it a precious gift.

Well done, wollstonecraft. Mick really got a gift from Josef, and after 55 years he "got" it what being a vampire could be. :hearts:

Lovely, Woll. I am so obsessed with Mick's need to choose his own destiny that this really appeals to me.

Simple and true. It was Mick's choice, and that allays any concerns Josef may have had regarding his actions.

This is beautiful, woll. I do love drabbles--every word is precious. Yes, the choice was the most wonderful gift of all, wasn't it? It was as if Josef repaved that tragic highway Mick had been trudging along, made it fresh and new, and Mick chose to take the journey again. What a freeing thing that is.

Thank you!

I had often thought that it wasn't being a vampire that had Mick so twisted. It was that Coraline took the choice from him. Josef gave it back.

Mick owes Josef much and you've tapped these emotions beautifully, woll.

A fresh perspective on what Josef did for Mick.

Lovely!

Thank everyone for being so kind to the writer-neophyte. As I told Red, some pesky mosquito tripped out as a muse bit me on this challenge. Now I understand all the writers who say that when it is in you, you just have to get it out. Hmmm....a very different perspective for me. Again, thank you to all who responded. (Note to self: Have to be more diligent in leaving responses when I read the fanfic...)

I didn't even realize up to now that this was your debut as a fanfic writer! Makes it all the more valuable that you took the challenge and gave us this lovely little insight into Mick's friendship with Josef. Wow!
