In our defense, it started as a discussion on gchat about dead languages. Granted, that's not much of a defense, as it quickly turned into the contemplation of a vampire linguist battling Beowulf in the British Library.
Megan and I have a long history of gchat conversations that devolve into complete and utter madness. (Award-winning author friends doing Elvis karaoke in a spangly white jumpsuit. I'm just saying.)
As she explains here, last night the madness got the best of us, and we decided to write a vampire story on Twitter. The search tag is #ViL, and you can find the thing as it stands now here.
We're completely working without a net on this one. We haven't discussed plot or character or anything. We're just reacting to what the other tweets. Updates are likely to be spontaneous and surprising.
