harrowgate: (you bore me)
I have questions for you. Your place or mine?

A perfunctory text message had succeeded in securing Robin Goodfellow's attention for that evening, as Felix had crafted it to do. As the response had included a rather posh address, it seemed Felix had succeeded doubly: he'd have Robin's experience to draw upon, and Shannon would be none the wiser.

He'd changed clothes after work and arrived at the given address in a dark, subtly patterned shirt beneath a cashmere sweater that fit his slim frame with aching perfection, beneath a warm winter coat against the London night air. The building's security -- cleverly disguised as reception in smart business attire -- assured him that he was expected, and sent him up to the correct floor. As it turned out, Felix hardly needed to look further. There was only one door beyond the elevator. Rather than let himself be impressed for too long, Felix donned an expectant expression, and knocked.

When Robin opened the door, he was decidedly underdressed. However, perhaps he should have been lauded for wearing clothes at all, since he'd briefly wondered what the little wizard would do if he'd opened the door in the nude. Instead, he was wearing a green silk dressing gown that somehow made his eyes look even more jewel-like, and it slipped just enough at the neck to tease an expanse of perfectly smooth, golden skin.

"Would you like a drink?" was his greeting as he opened the door wider for him to enter.

"I don't know," Robin said, smirking. He looked amused, as if, perhaps somehow, he knew exactly what Felix was thinking. Or perhaps, that he could guess.

"Do you prefer scotch, brandy, or wine?"

"About me?" Robin asked casually as he moved to the bar to pull out a bottle of scotch and two glasses. "Because I really think you ought to add accurate anatomical drawings."

"Again I must wonder if you mean me," Robin said smoothly, and brought Felix a glass with scotch and water. "I do not know what to tell you, pet. I'm simply irresistable."

"Oh, you minx," said Robin immediately, but then caught Felix's expression and tone, and added, his voice a bit more tight, "When you say convinced...?"

Robin was blatant with his advances, but he drew the line very, very strongly at the willing.

Robin knocked back about half of his scotch in one go, and then said, "Sounds like an incubus. Or an incubus-like vampire. I've never met one of the latter, heard about this one family but I thought they were in America."

"There are different types of most everything," Robin said. "You should know that, little wizard." He slid serpent-like onto the couch next to him, though not close enough to touch. "Have you ever met a vampire?"

Robin wrinkled his nose. "Certainly not. Some of them are really lovely." He smiled, all teeth. "But, all of them feed off of life force in some way. For almost all, it's blood. Not that that means they kill people. Some have volunteers, some steal from blood banks, or in the case of at least one in this city, run a nice little piano bar and let the customers pay bar tabs in donations." He waved a hand vaguely in the air. "But for a small minority, they don't drink blood at all, they drink emotions. Nasty stuff, most of them. Had a run in with despair vampires a few years ago. Wouldn't recommend it. I've always rather wanted to meet a lust vampire, though. I've heard they're fun. As long as they don't suck your soul away while you beg for more, I mean."

"Oh yes," Robin said. "They can make you want them, easily enough. Not that it's even that necessary most of the time, apparently; I mean, well, you've seen one, apparently." He was tempted to ask for a description and name. He'd really always wanted to meet one. "There's probably no harm done, you know. I mean, physical harm. One night with an incubus-vampire might leave you a bit tired, is all. It can become addictive, of course. If you find yourself wanting more, best to take a step back and think about it."

"It could be worse," Robin said, and picked up the bottle of scotch to refill Felix's glass. "There are some vampires, that kind included, who would have just as soon left you dead in the bed."

"Well," said Robin, "there's good news and bad news." He poured, then his as well, and knocked back about half of his. "The good news is, the worst kind of vampires - the real nasty ones, the ones that basically see humans as cattle - have a lot of weaknesses, relatively. Sunlight. Fire. Silver. I'd recommend carrying around a silver knife. And I know wizards who can bottle sunshine, that's useful. The bad news is, those emotional vampires - now, I'm no expert on this - but from what I've heard, they don't have those same weaknesses. My advice? If you run across this fellow again, don't let him touch you. Skin to skin contact heightens it, so I understand."

"It's a kind of magic," Robin said with a shrug. "Just not a conscious sort. You're upset. Is there s particular sort of reassurance you were hoping for?"

"His intentions may or may not have been malicious," Robin pointed out, and refilled his own glass. "I mean, imagine how much it would suck to not be able to have sex at all otherwise? Of course, that's the kind of benefit of the doubt I'm not usually willing to give. You're probably right, you were probably a snack. Does your lovely blonde consort even know you're a wizard?"
