Friday afternoon. Target: Date Night.

Draconia stepped inside of the Looking Glass and shivered. The weather outside was windy and cold, a true Decembrrr day. Being slightly cold-blooded, it chilled Draconia right to her ruby heart. A twitch of her wings sent snow fluttering down onto the 'BEWARE YE WHO ENTRE HERE" welcome mat.

"Drake? Is that you?" Draconia's syster, Wyvernia tilted her head up from her iCrypt pad and adjusted her glasses.

"Yes, it's me, Wyvvie." Draconia replied, fanging up her coat. "Brrr...it's blustery out there!"

"That's why I'm over here." Wyvernia pointed at the crackling fire in the fireplace down in the reading nook. Their uncle, whom they affectionately called Uncle Wocky, had no problems with his store patrons picking up a volume and giving it a test read before buying at the Looking Glass.

The only thing he warned was that sometimes a good book could take you to faraway lands....and a bad book might conspire to keep you there.


"So! Chinese, tonight? Dusky and Moana are clearing the back wall for a poetry slam tonight, so we'll have to eat before other monsters start coming in." Wvyernia reminded her sister. Draconia stopped and blushed.

"Actually, I...er...sort of...have a date tonight." She stammered. Wyvernia raised an eyebrow in surprise, and then a smile slowly creeped across her face.

"A date? You do? Draconia! And here you were, going on to mum and dad at Fangsgiving about how you were so happy not dating anyone!"

"It's not like that!"
Draconia protested. "I mean...it IS a date, but it's not serious or anything. It's basically fanging out with friends."

"Who is it?"
Wyvernia asked. "Somemonster I know?"

"I don't think so...his name is Lin. He's a gremlin."

"A gremlin?! Be scareful you don't lose him! Or accidentally pack him away in your purse!" Wyvernia's eyes sparkled a bit as she winked with her teasing. Draconia gave one giggle.

"He's very nice and besides, we're going to be double dating with Glen and Chase. Nothing can go wrong."

"You say that now, but we'll see what you say when you get back from your date with a gremlin." Wvyernia pinched Draconia's cheek a little bit and then put away her iCrypt. "I'd better go see if Dusky and Moana need any help. I'm going to be watching the poetry slam tonight. Maybe somemonster will be uhh-mazing enough to do a news story on!"

"Maybe." Draconia nodded as her sister lurked off to the back. She looked at the clock and nearly jumped out of her boots.

"Bloody bats! Is it that late already? I have to get changed! I can't possibly go out on date night dressed like THIS!"

An hour later...

Draconia stepped out of her room dressed smartly in a lovely short evergreen crushed-velvet minidress with long black sleeves. She offset that with a pair of leggings with a frighteningly fresh purple and white checker pattern, and topped off the ensemble with her favourite pair of black scary jane heels, with a fangtastic castle pattern pressed into the leather.

She'd done her hair up in long, loose curls all swept to one side and held back with a black velvet ribbon. Draconia paused for a moment in front of the hallway mirror and checked her makeup.


"I do believe I may be ready!" She told her reflection, reassuringly. This was her first actual, official date since the amicable breakup with Manny Taur. If she let herself get too nervous about it, she wouldn't be able to enjoy it one jot. With a twist of a heel and a quick flounce of her dress, she walked down the stairs from the flat where she and her sister dwelled into the bookstore below.

"Oh, my!" Draconia gasped. She hadn't thought she was upstairs THAT long, but in that time, Luna "Dusky" Duskwing and Moana Dedmeat, the two bookstore clerks, had transformed the entire left wing of the bookstore into a dead ringer for a poetry cafe. Tables were lit by little flickering candles perched atop chick black skulls. One wall was left open, with a microphone standing in front of it and a few instruments were waiting off to the side.

Wyvernia was busy stocking up the coffee corner with cream and sugar while Dusky and Moana put the finishing touches on stylishly draping spiderweb curtains to make a mock entryway from the rest of the bookstore into the 'Poetry Scorner,' as the banner above the curtains read.


"What an utterly groovy job!" Draconia gushed. "This is such a brilliant idea!"

"Thanks!" Wyvernia grinned. "I based it off of one that I saw in New Goreleans the last time I was down there reporting on the flooding of the Mississ-icki river. I think making the Poetry Scorner a monthly event will attract some business that might not normally come to the Looking Glass."

"Maybe I can convince my group to come by here after dinner." Draconia mused. "I wonder if poetry is Lin's thing..."

"Don't worry about it!" Wyvernia assured Draconia, handing her a hot tea in a to-go cup. "Just enjoy your date."

"Thank you!" Draconia blushed a little bit. "I will! See you later!"

"Bye!" Wvyernia waved.

"You're going already? I'm just starting to feel awake!" Dusky gave Draconia a nod.

"Uuhhhggghh." Moana intoned cautiously at Draconia. Draconia nodded gratefully.

"I will, Moana, don't worry! Goodbye!" She promised the matronly zombie before hopping out the door and making a bee-line for the Maul to join Glen, Chase and Lin for their double date.

Time has a way of passing quickly in the shadow world, and as the day slipped by and dusk started to fall over the town, the door to the Looking Glass's broom closet swung ope with a flourish...

"We're he-!" "Shad" had started to say when the momentum of the door caused it to swing right back and latch itself closed in the faces of both himself as well as that of his guest and beast fiend, Lillith Van Helscream.

"Well, so much for our most ginchiest of entrances..."

"Yes, well. Can you at least do a lady the decency of getting hr out of the closet?"

"Coolsville, Lil. No need to blow your jets. I'll get us out of here."

The knob to the closet door rattled.

"Um..."

"Can I blow my jets now?"

From the outside, Draconia's sister Wyvernia approached the closet door with a smile, having overheard the commotion within. She was witness to more than one of the sack boos "wrong turns" so it didn't take th deducing of a hexpert reporter such as herself to know just who their latest guest would be. She pulled the door open and Shad's eyes widened behind his dark shades...

"Eep!"

And Shad promptly hid as best he could behind the mop. Oh yes! He remembered Draconia's sister as well! Lillith looked at her 'beasty', then at Wyvernia who just rolled her eyes with a smile. She reached in and cupped Shad's arm, pulling him out with an audible yelp.

"Come on out, you two." Wyvernia said as Lillith carefully followed. "Drake said to expect you as one of the speakers so I knew to keep an eye out for the closet. Never knew a sackman that knew how to use a front door."

Shad sheepishly brushed off his sweater while Lillith straightened her leopard print sweater before the two had a look around at the area that had been completely transformed.


"Whoaa! Total wigsville!" Shad nodded as he had a look at the few guests and speakers who had already arrived. "Check out the groovy hipsters planning their souls for the baring."

The poetry slam had seemed to attract a fair few monsters, both boos and ghouls, mansters and womoan. There was a tar beast burbling in the corner ... a rusalki seemed to be hovering over her chair as she swayed to the unheard boosic... wait, was that Nero over in the corner?

"Lovely." Lillith sighed. "The only normie, again." She put on her haughtiest air and took Shad's arm as they walked over to the poetry corner to begin preparing.
