First is another architectural drawing.
Some mischievous pigs.
And a goblin.
"I should have stopped her... but I didn't. I stood there and watched my girlfriend die."When Clare woke up, she wasn't Clare anymore. But not in the way I was expecting. I was imagining something similar to when Spike sired his mother and realized that his mother was replaced by a demon. But this was more drastic than that. Something went wrong when Clare was sired. She wasn't evil, just feral. Wild. Her jaw gained the ability to open far too wide. It was then that Severin's ability first manifested itself. He turned her human, and then back into a corpse.
"I know demons older than your kind. They all fear the arrival of the siphon. A being who rips mystical energy from all he touches. All who possess supernatural power. Vampire, demon... even slayer. And he's heading straight at your friend."This, though. This was a twist I hadn't seen coming. Severin tells Buffy that with everything he kills, he becomes stronger, and that he might even be stronger than her when they take out the nest. Uh oh. Buffy kicks open the door to find it filled with corpses. And I mean FILLED. So many dead bodies. I have to admit that this genuinely gave me chills. I don't remember being this worried for Buffy in a long time. This is good writing. Buffy, shocked, says that they're already dead. Severin, crackling with power and an evil grin, turns to Buffy.
"I know."Oh $%&#@!
