I bring an original supernatural/sci-fi story. The story is about four people who are just trying to find what they want in their world.


The story centers on a group of five people, who are all trying to find what they want in the world. Maggie Quinn awoke in a cement cell years ago. Now, she's taken care of by Douglas Andrews, a man whose given up everything in order to care for Maggie. The two live together with Simon Turner, a 20-something just trying to get his life back on track. Everything seems to be going well for the threesome, until the arrive of mysterious James Warren. Oh, and did I mention Simon's a werewolf, Warren's a vampire, and Maggie's. . .well, over three hundred years old?




Maggie Quinn - Her first memories are of her waking up in a stone prison, with no windows or doors. This as in the 1700s. She stayed trapped in there for a hundred years. And was saved by Richard Whitman. Since then, his family has taken care of her. Maggie doesn't age, doesn't sleep or eat or drink, doesn't have an oder, as no memories before 1700s, and can't be around normal people - she can see their future deaths, and it is physically painful. The Whitman - now Andrews - family has one person take care of Maggie since the 1700s. Basically, he/she is a gloried babysitter. Except, Maggie more or less kills them after 25 years, because she may/may not feed off their soul. Maggie wants to find out whom or what she is, how she came to be, where she came from, etc.

Douglas Andrews - is in his late 30s, and has been Maggie's "Keeper" for the last 12 years. Taking care of Maggie means he has a great immune system, but he's also slowly dying and not allowed to have a real life - no friends, no wife, no girlfriends, and no children. He's the only "normal" person Maggie can stand being around. I image Douglas as a very normal man, who was pulled into the supernatural world, though not totally against his will. He lives his life for Maggie, and has become harder and less humane. He works low paying jobs, and tries to pretend that everything is fine. But, that changes when he falls in love. It's then that he has to decide if he really wants to stay with Maggie - he could break their bond, but then they wouldn't be able to interact anymore- or follow his heart. .

Simon Turner is in his mid-twenties and has recently become a werewolf. Because he's supernatural, Maggie can stand being around him. He was found in Douglas and Maggie's backyard after his first transformation. They agreed to take him in, so Douglas could show him the ropes. Simon is a bit insecure, so he tries to cover it up by being rude. He sees Douglas and Maggie as his family now, and tries to protect them. But, he's also rather young and looking for a place to truly belong. He's thinking of looking for a cure for his new "infection" but he's not sure if he likes what he finds.

Henrietta "Henry" Harker - is in her late-twenties and is a totally normal human. I image her as the Arthur Dent of the group. A normal person thrust into the world of supernatural, almost against her will. She is the object of affection for Andrews, leading to issues for Maggie and Simon. She's a young professional, and doesn't believe in any of the things she's currently dealing with. Maggie says Henry "special", though what that means has yet to be determined.

James Warren - is a vampire that is over 100 years old. He's rather young, but he's already got a dangerous reputation in the supernatural world. He strikes up a friendship with Simon - showing the young man all the right ways to have a good time. This annoys Douglas, who sees Warren as dangerous. Warren states that if he drank Maggie's blood, he'd never have to drink blood again, but so far Maggie's not very interested. Warren begins to drive a wedge between Douglas and Simon, by being the "cool" guy that Simon wants to be like, much to Douglas' dismay. Warren also drives a wedge between Douglas and Maggie, by telling Maggie that Douglas wants to leave her to have a normal life with Henry.

Mood Dissonance – Andrews tries very hard to make Maggie feel like everyone else; Maggie tries to, but sometimes the mood is destroyed: “Today someone came to the door. I think they were religious types. I went to open the door, but I could hear it. . .I could see it. . .their fates. So, I went and did the dishes instead.”

Battle in the center of the mind – Warren vs. his vampire nature. Sort of.

I Do Not Drink Wine – Maggie doesn’t eat or drink – ever.

I Uh You Too – If Maggie calls you her ‘friend’, it means she loves you.

Maggie: You are my very bestest friend.
