Written for my Paranormal25 150 Prompt Table. Prompt #131: Black Agnes.

They barely made it into the house before snarls and growls and whimpers mixed with lecherous chuckles and throaty groans. Clothes tore, skin scratched and nails dug deep as adrenaline raced through their veins, the thrill of a successful hunt and victorious battle fueling passions already soaring.


"She needs to get away from them, even if only for a little while." Dean grumbled darkly as he paced one of the terraces of the building in which the charity event they were attending was being held in. "She's stronger than she gives herself credit, and she's getting stronger."

"Dean," Sam sighed, leaning against the balcony, head lowered, gaze on the shadows cast by moonlight. "We need to accept that we may have lost her already."

His elder brother sent him a look.

"I'm serious, things are different now than before." Sam looked up finally, shadows dancing on his darkened face. "She's a-you know what she is-and-."

"Does that really bother you, Sammy?" Dean snapped at him. "Because if so then fine. I don't care! I-."

"No it doesn't bother me Dean!" Sam snapped back at him, the flimsy amount of control he had over his emotions wavering. "But it matters to her."

The older Winchester couldn't deny that, so he just returned to pacing. "We're losing her, Sammy."

"We mightn't have had her to begin with." Sam whispered, lowering his gaze once more.

"We did!" Dean insisted. "If she hadn't run-if we'd been smart enough to realize she'd bolt-things would have been different and she would have come around." He stopped pacing. "If we could get her away from them for a while, she would come around."

"Sam! Dean!" Lois' voice caused them to turn and see their friend and co-star as she rushed to them, pale. "You have to come quick. You won't believe what's happening on CNN."


Stefan watched Chloe as she slept in the large bed, hair tousled, skin pale, bite marks on each side of her neck, lips curled in a highly satisfied way that made him feel somewhat proud. The hunt and the celebrating afterwards had completely tired her out, and she was even snoring softly as she shifted positions in her sleep, the sheet that'd been tucked up to her neck now riding low on her chest.

Feeling movement, he watched Damon enter the bedroom, two glasses of bourbon in his hands, offering one out to Stefan.

"Thanks." He whispered so as not to disturb her, accepting the glass and taking a small sip.

It was odd, this relative peace between him and his brother. It almost reminded him of how they'd been before Katherine had gotten in the middle and ruined everything, or, well, it was probably as close to returning to how they were as they'd ever be. They still argued and rarely saw eye to eye in anything, but despite that they hardly stabbed each other anymore. That had to count for something.

Hearing his phone ring, Stefan hurried to answer it before it awoke the blonde. He gazed at the caller I.D. in shock for a second before flipping open the lid and looking up at his curious brother bringing bringing it to his ear. "Elena?"


Having been discharged from the hospital, the girls lay on Audrey's bed, watching the footage of what had happened in the cave on Audrey's laptop, their eyes widening as fangs elongated and eyes darkened. Vampires. They were vampires. The girls closed the lid of the computer and turned to look at each other, shocked, not understanding anything or sure what to do with this information. This video was more than they could have hoped for, it showed just how perfect Chlalvatorism was...and yet...and yet...if they put this on the internet they'd be letting out a secret Chloe, Damon and Stefan were obviously guarding zealously.

They wanted the world to love this coupling as much as they did...but at what cost?

Audrey gulped, bringing her hand to gingerly touch the bandage on her head. "I'd be dead if it wasn't for them."

"So would I." Vanna whispered. "I kinda love them even more now."

"Tell me about it." Audrey whispered as she ejected the video card, gazing at it. On this was all they'd put their lives in jeopardy for.

The girls shared a look.

Silently, sharing a nod, they limped towards the bathroom and flushed the card down the toilet, smiling as it disappeared forever.

"So." Audrey grinned brightly. "Wanna co-write a Chlalvatore story with me where Chloe, Stefan and Damon somehow get covered in magical sex powder?"

"Only if Stefan and Dean also have a congenial relationship with Sam and Dean in this story." Vanna replied, obviously thinking back at the surprising fact that the real Winchesters and Salvatores apparently tolerated each other. "No one needs to be a villain out of the four. Chloe loves the four of them, so why can't we all just learn from that and stop with the shipping wars?"

"We'll spread this message with our writing." Audrey promised her. "We'll even start a new ship if we have to!"

"A new one?" Vanna asked, curious.

"Of course!" Audrey grinned, placing her arm round Vanna's shoulder and fanning out her free arm in front of them. "We'll call it: Schleanvatore!"

Vanna's eyes widened and she grinned, clapping her hands together in excitement. "How taboo! I love it!"

"Come, we have much to plan!" Audrey declared, and together the girls left the bathroom, excited and exchanging ideas for the future of their brand new ship.


"So Katherine is back in Mystic Falls threatening Elena and the only way she'll let Elena's brother and boyfriend live is if you two go there." Chloe summarized, stomach in knots as she sat in bed, holding the sheet up to her naked chest despite their having seen and sampled her goods millions of times over.

"That about sums it up, yes." Stefan frowned as he leaned against the wall. "I'm very worried that Katherine is up to something. Why go as far as to hide the fact that she was alive and well and then all of a sudden pull a stunt like this? Why threaten Elena and her family?"

"What does that bitch want?" Damon snarled as he lounged on a chair, glass in hand, eyes narrowed in fury. "How dare she summon us!"

Chloe looked between them, seeing the raw emotion on their faces, before she lowered her own, tightening her hold on the sheet. She'd always known it would come down to this. They hadn't been a love-match, they'd been a way of helping the other cope, of feeling less dead. And now...and now not only was Stefan's One True Love in danger, but the sire Damon obsessed over was back in town as well. And while neither of the male vampires were saying it out loud she could see in their eyes that Elena and Katherine were dominating their thoughts, concerns...as they should.

She gulped.

She was fine.

She'd known this day would come.

And thankfully, she was strong enough to do what must be done. They'd taught her well, and tonight had shown her that she was stronger than she gave herself credit for. There'd been blood, there'd been stress, and there'd been easy pickings...all her weaknesses...and yet she hadn't once thought about feeding.

"What time are you leaving?" Chloe finally asked.

Both vampires turned towards her.

"What?" Stefan frowned.

"And where would I be going?" Damon raised an eyebrow.

Chloe gave them a little smile. "Stefan, we all know that you will not leave Elena or those she loves to be in danger. And Damon, you've been searching for Katherine for a very long time, you won't stay away if only to hear why she did what she did to you."

The looks on their faces betrayed that they couldn't argue with those facts.

"I can't go because it's not safe for me if Katherine knows about me and how...different...I am." She pulled a strand of blonde hair behind her ear. "But you two need to go back to Mystic Falls."

Stefan sighed. "Will you be okay here by yourself while we go to tend to this business?"

Damon raised an eyebrow. "You can't be considering actually going back."

Stefan turned to his brother. "You know you're going, even if it's to kill her, you know you're going."

Damon narrowed his eyes and emptied his glass rapidly.

Point made, Stefan turned to Chloe, worried. "Will you?"

She smiled up at him bravely. "I'm a vampire, Stefan. I think I can take care of myself."

"You're a Baby Vampire." Damon corrected. "You still need us."

Probably more than she should.

"We'll head out tonight, now possibly." Stefan decided, seeming impatient. "The sooner we deal with Katherine the sooner we can come back."

Chloe smiled softly at Stefan for his true belief that he and Damon would be coming back, but she knew true love was a hard thing to resist, and once he'd saved Elena they'd fall into each other's arms and be happy together, as they were supposed to be. And Damon...she'd been with a drunk Damon long enough to know that he'd truly loved Katherine and was still hurt by how she'd played him a fool...if Katherine gave him the opportunity to go back, Chloe wouldn't fault him for doing so.

They'd prepared her for life as a vampire as best as they could, and she loved them for it.

But now she had to let them go.

Chloe tightened her grip around the sheets.

She had to.

She does not give her desirability any credit. They may not have said the words but they seem to love her and she's thinking of running again. Bad place to end this. You have to write another sequel now.
9th-Sep-2011 07:39 pm (UTC)
Yep, Chloe doesn't realize it, but the title "like riding a bike" not only applied to her ability to slip back into the role of investigator...but at her own insecurities (which only get heightened when one becomes a vampire) and her desire to run before she has the chance of being hurt. :(
9th-Sep-2011 07:47 pm (UTC)
I just don't see them letting her run though, especially Damon, not after everything he went through with Katherine
9th-Sep-2011 08:43 pm (UTC)
Oh, you are so right & wise young padawan! *wink*
9th-Sep-2011 04:58 pm (UTC)
U can't just end It there it's just wrong more please.

Ps when will u update ur number series and kaloe FICs
9th-Sep-2011 07:40 pm (UTC)
Yep, it's wrong, but I'm mean so that's fine! :P
I was looking at my Numbers series last night wondering the exact same thing!
9th-Sep-2011 06:24 pm (UTC)
I am totally down for Schleanvatore!!! Poor Chloe, always downplaying her own awesomeness. I can't wait for the sequel!!
9th-Sep-2011 07:41 pm (UTC)
Yes, she is, the vampirism has just enhanced all her insecurities and issues :(
9th-Sep-2011 09:08 pm (UTC)
oooh but I bet they don`t think like Chloe thinks they think of elena and katherine right? LOL when they go to mystic falls she or dean and sam are gonna take her to supernatural diaries or something :D yay!
9th-Sep-2011 09:13 pm (UTC)
Well...lets just say that while Stefan and Damon go back to face their past...Chloe's gonna be doing some of the same ;)
9th-Sep-2011 11:11 pm (UTC)
I can´t said I`m surprised but I can say I`m looking forward to some of that LOL. you rock!

This fic...this fic...this fic is awesome is what it is! I love this fandom combination so much and it's all because of you. Chloe always sees herself as second best with the men in her life, and despite all of the perks that come with being a vampire, that hasn't changed.

I particularly enjoyed the emphasis you placed on Stefan being her sire and how that pull is different then Damon's. Stefan always comes off as the tortured soul-type, so it's nice to see him embrace this bond so thoroughly with Chloe. It lightens his character quite a bit.

Can't say I'm not still pullin for the Winchester boys though, as I'm all for letting Chloe have her cake and eat it too. If it where any other character, I'd say multiple partners was selfish, but for a girl that's been passed over time and again by the men in her life (in the canon verse anyway)...a harem of devoted love slaves seems entirely deserved, lol.

All these wonderful Chloe-fics, I swear you're spoiling me...and I love every minute of it! Please come back with more soon ;-)
10th-Sep-2011 01:04 am (UTC)
Thanks! I was beginning to wonder whether I should continue this verse or leave it...so it's good to hear that there are people out there reading and enjoying it :) And yes, Chloe always sees herself second to all the brunettes in this world *facepalm*

Exactly. Stefan and Damon have two different sorts of relationships with her, both with benefits and some cons, but they help even it out...and while things are more physical with Damon they're much more emotion/spiritual with Stefan, with whom she shares a bond that no one else can really compare to vampire-wise.

Ah yes, the Winchesters...I'm still wondering what part they're going to play in the future of Chloe's life. I'm being pulled in two different directions right now...so we'll see where it goes in the future installments.
11th-Sep-2011 07:12 am (UTC) - Brothers
So, since this is Chloe and the brothers series and Klaus and Elijah are brothers, could we be possibly be seeing an appearance from them the future? Or am I barking up the wrong the tree as usual? Loving this series.
11th-Sep-2011 08:34 am (UTC) - Re: Brothers
You know...I hadn't even *considered* that!!! o.O
11th-Sep-2011 09:07 am (UTC) - Re: Brothers
Well Damon and Stephan were silly enough to leave her all by herself and since Chloe really isn't normal for a vampire and could have as yet undiscovered side talents I'm sure Klaus would find her interesting and Elijah too as a possible ally/(weapon?) It's just a possibility.
11th-Sep-2011 04:10 pm (UTC) - Re: Brothers
You make a very compelling case and I will seriously have to consider this.
12th-Sep-2011 02:27 am (UTC)
I finished reading this chapter and my first thought was "I'll join you Audrey and Vanna in shipping Schleanvatore!" :p

Although in all seriousness I think it would be cool for Damon, Stefan, Dean, and Sam to have to team up for some reason. There would be bickering, arrogance (Damon and Dean), and peacemakers (Stefan and Sam). It would be really amusing. Have no clue what situation would occur for that to happen in though.

Does this ending mean you're going to continue this series? Because I would really love it if you did, I want to see who Chloe ends up with. And I want Damon and Stefan to chase after her, they don't seem like the type to let go easily (at least Damon doesn't, too possessive). Which would be nice since Chloe reverted to feeling undesirable. :/

Loved this story and would love to red more!

12th-Sep-2011 02:45 am (UTC)
I'm sure Audrey and Vanna are very happy to know that!!!!

It *would* be interesting to see the four of them having to team up and have to work together without Chloe there as referee...but that would also be kinda dangerous!!!!

Oh, this most definitely will be continued!
13th-Sep-2011 05:07 am (UTC)
Wow. Just, wow. Not the ending I was expecting. I love how you brought fanfic writing into the story though. Gave a little nod to all us multi-shippers out here. :D I can't wait to find out what you have in store for Chloe and the Brothers next. :D

13th-Sep-2011 05:43 am (UTC)
Well....I try to keep everyone guessing! Even when I'm dabbling in known movies and such! :)
16th-Feb-2012 08:59 pm (UTC)
*kick chloe in the shin*.... had to read the whole serie again... and again can't believe how little self esteem chloe has....
loved it... thanks!!!
16th-Feb-2012 09:09 pm (UTC)
Well, in VD whenever someone turns into a vampire both their positive and negative traits as a human get magnetized and made a hundreds times stronger, so if she had low self esteem before she turned into a vampire it'll be TERRIBLE now.
