Summary: The whole world now knows about vampires, and most of it has been compelled by Klaus, via the "coming out" broadcast. With the Salvatores and the Winchesters unable to see eye to eye on anything, Lois learning the way of the vampire hunter, and someone from the past returning to 'help', things are about to become crazy. And, of course, E!News is happily covering it all.

Lois ignored the arguing and fighting and breaking of objects going on below, the brunette frowning as she watched Chloe and the other vampire moving towards the building. She'd wanted to observe her cousin with the fangs, and while things with the first one seemed tense as hell (which was promising), this one had started out tense as well but had ended up uncomfortably (for Lois) tender. It was obvious to the brunette that the relationship between Chloe and the vampire was an extremely close and loving one, and that despite the fact that Chloe had said that things were different for vampires, and that she and the Salvatores weren't in a relationship and weren't in love with each other... well... it all seemed like bullshit to Lois.

Leaning her forehead against the glass, Lois took in a deep breath as Chloe and the vampire entered the building, hand in hand. Sure, Lois was going to use this time to enter Chloe's world and integrate herself into it so that she couldn't be left behind again, but there'd been another reason for her being here, and it had been recon. There was no way that she felt vampires could be good matches for her cousin, not when Sam and Dean had done so much-had waited-they were the ones meant for her cousin, and Lois had already decided that she was going to matchmake like hell to make sure that Chloe realized where she needed to be. Vampire or not, obviously there was something still there. Chloe and the Winchesters were still unable to let go of each other, to say goodbye, and that should say something! Should mean something!

Chloe couldn't end up with the vampires who'd killed her! Because the fact that Chloe had sidestepped the issue of her "creation" had confirmed any doubts Lois had had about the fact that one, or both, of the Salvatore brothers had been involved in the occurrence. If the violence below was anything to go by, her money was on the older one who'd entered the house and stormed towards Katherine and Ric and started snarling at them both the second he saw them.

Lois wanted her cousin happy above all else, and she was scared for her. The brunette had lived in fear for a whole year that she'd receive a phone call that someone, somewhere, had found the body of the blonde and she was being asked to go and positively identify it. Both girls had grown up basically abandoned by their living parents and family-members, and had only had each other for company and protection. Lois had a sister she didn't even know what part of the world she was in, the disconnect between the Lane sisters was that bad, but Lois had adopted Chloe as another sister, one that loved her back. Lois was independent, she was fiery and badass and all sorts of mayhem and chaos, but she needed to know that she had someone she could trust and who had her back, and in her whole life there had always only been one person who did that: Chloe, and she'd felt crippled when she'd lost her best friend.

She wasn't going to lose her again. She wasn't. And she was going to do all in her power to make sure that Chloe was safe and protected.

If that meant she was going to have to go head to head with vampires, well, fine.

Squaring her shoulders, Lois took in a deep breath and headed towards the sounds of the raised voices.

-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v

"You keep forgetting that I'm older than the both of you," Katherine sneered. "I can easily kill you if I want to."

Damon's eyes narrowed. "We don't need or want your help, so you can take your stripper heels and march out the same way you came in."

Out of pure defiance Katherine threw herself onto the sofa, resting said stripper heels on the coffee table. "I don't know why you pretend that you're not happy to see me."

"I'm not pretending." Damon glared.

"Damon, you searched for centuries for a way to get me out of that crypt." Katherine raised an eyebrow. "That sort of love, that sort of adoration, doesn't disappear just because you get a new plaything."

Damon's eyes darkened slightly, his skin paling, the change barely noticeable.

Alaric noticed it though, and he knew Damon well enough to know that things were about to get more dangerous, so he stepped in quickly. "Katherine, I didn't convince them to let you stay so you could antagonize everyone."

Damon's gaze turned on him. "Remind me to talk to you about that later, Ric."

Alaric sighed.

Katherine rolled her eyes, far from affected or worried. "He's just acting out right now, once he gets over his anger and frustration he'll see that I'm right."

"Fat chance," Damon sneered before he smirked. "Talking about fat: Katherine... Have you been overfeeding lately?"

Alaric palmed his face.

She hissed and threw a vase at Damin, which he easily evaded and which broke behind him on the wall. "I'm not fat! I'm as perfect as the night you gave your life for me because you loved me so much to you life wasn't worth living if I was dead!"

"You really think mentioning the moment you betrayed your friends, faked your own death, and got Stefan and I killed is really the way to go, smartass?" Damon glared. "You know what? You're right. I searched for you for centuries like some lovesick schoolboy who fantasied about about our lives could be like, but I don't love you anymore Katherine. You're the one living in a fantasy if you think I do."

"You hate me," she eyed him with a smirk. "And you know what they say about love and hate. It involves thin lines."

Damon glared at her.

Alaric narrowed his gaze between them.

"Hello Katherine," a new voice announced, breaking into the tense silence.

Everyone turned to see the newcomers.

Katherine's face lit up. "Stefan!" She stood, went to him in the blink of an eye, flung her arms around his neck and kissed him deeply right in front of Chloe. She then pulled away only enough to smirk into his face. "I've missed you."

Stefan merely removed his sire's hands from around his neck and dropped them away from him. "So, what do you get out of helping us?"

"Stefan, I'm hurt," she pouted. "I don't get anything out of this."

"Except that she does." Alaric raised an eyebrow. "She's been on the run from Klaus for hundreds of years and the thought of him having total domination of the world terrifies her. It's the only reason why she's risking her neck and doing this."

Katherine frowned darkly at Alaric. "How do you know all of this?"

"I have my sources." Sources he wasn't ready to reveal as yet.

Lois Lane appeared around the corner, and Ric nearly cursed out loud for straightening slightly, especially since he could tell Damon had picked up on that little tell. This was the last thing the vampire hunter needed at this moment - for his fanboy crush on Chloe's cousin to become Damon's newest source of sadistic pleasure.

"Lois!" Chloe smiled a little warily as her gaze went between the moody vampires in the room and her cousin. "Uhm, uh, I'd like you to meet Damon and Stefan Salvatore."

Damon merely sneered at Lois. The idiot.

Stefan, on the other hand, understood the necessity of making a good first impression. He smiled at Lois and moved towards her, holding his hand out. "I know I can never apologize enough, or make up for keeping Chloe or her situation from you, but I want you to know that we took good care of your cousin while you weren't there."

Alaric could see a mixture of emotions swirling on Lois' face.

Stefan wasn't finished. "Chloe is a part of our family, and I understand that you are still new to the vampire world and don't understand what that means. To us, to our kind, family means everything."

"It means everything to humans as well," Lois whispered, eyes narrowed.

Stefan nodded. "What I am trying to say is that to us, Chloe is very important, and that as her family, you are as well."

"Speak for yourself," Damon snapped.

"I will, then." Stefan didn't look away from Lois, his gaze serious. "I want you to understand that as a fledgling Chloe was dangerous, she was battling her self-control issues and couldn't safely be a part of your life. She kept you away and in the dark-not because her life was more exciting or because she loved or missed you any less-but because of quite the opposite. I can personally tell you that she watched every episode of Paranormal, followed your Twitter account under an alias, and cried a lot because of how much she missed you… Especially whenever the Addams Family and Addams Family Values would come on the television." He blinked. "I never understood the connection, though she mumbled once that it had to do with you."

Lois's gaze went to Chloe quickly before it returned to Stefan, a sheen visible in her eyes as she cleared her throat. "We always were attracted to the macabre, and would pretend we were Thursday and Friday Addams."

"I see." Stefan paused and smiled before he nodded and continued. "I guess this is my very longwinded way of saying that you are a part of Chloe's family, so you are a part of my family as well, and I hope you can come to see me as a part of your family one day."

Chloe reached out and placed her hand on Stefan's arm, a tender expression on her face.

Lois cleared her throat as she finally reached out and put her hand in the one Stefan had held out to her this whole time, the brunette shaking it. "Well, I think we should at least get to know each other."

"Barf." Katherine rolled her eyes and threw herself back onto the sofa.

Lois pulled away and hugged herself.

Ric felt that things might be calming down finally, and he sighed in relief. He knew that he and Damon were going to argue on their own later on for the deception, but at least for now there was enough peace for everyone to talk things over and fill the Salvatores in on the fact that the Originals not only knew about Chloe's existence, but about her abilities, and that they wanted to use them/her(?) for themselves. He could see the annoyance previously felt by the brothers disappear from their faces and be replaced by another emotion.

"I don't see what the big issue is." Damon folded his arms over his chest. "All we need to do is kill these Originals."

Of course this would be his answer to the problem, this was always his answer.

"If Klaus was easy to kill I would've had him killed 500 years ago and wouldn't have been on the run my entire vampiric life." Katherine shot Damon a disgusted look. "Stakes to the heart don't work on an Original, and scarily enough, I don't know if any normal way of killing will actually work on them. None of the ways I've heard of being tried on them have actually worked."

"You're saying that they're truly Immortal?" Stefan frowned.

Lois shook her head. "Everything has a weakness. Mother natures is just a stealthy bitch who sometimes hides those weaknesses and makes them harder to find than in others, but everything can be killed."

"Rule #3." Ric flinched as soon as those words were out of his mouth.

Chloe's eyes widened. "You never told me you read Chloe and the Dead People."

He rubbed the back of his head and gave her a sheepish smile, feeling less and less cool by the second. "You never brought up your past and I figured you didn't want to talk about it."

"Gees, Ric," Damon snorted. "Next you're going to say you watched that show she did with Dumb and Dumber-Psychic Journals."

Ric lowered his head. "Supernatural Diaries. And I own Season One on DVD."

Damon's lips parted. "Does the magnitude of your betrayal know no limit?"

Lois eyes Ric curiously. "So, what's your favorite episode of SD?"

Ric blinked, though he really didn't have to think about his answer. "Episode 7: Puppet Master."

Chloe shivered. "God, I still have nightmares about that one."

Damon and Stefan, who hadn't watched the reality show, exchanged looks.

"Otherwise known as: Lois Saves Everyone's Butts." Lois' lips twitched at Ric. "You're kind of evil, those puppets were creepy as crap!" Her gaze went to Chloe. "Remember the ones that took over you and Sam, Chlo? The twins? They kept speaking in unison-so freaky! Though Dean probably got the worse deal that night-he still has a scar from where his puppet stuck him with the knife to try and start peeling off his skin."

"Please." Katherine rolled her eyes. "Everyone could see that that was all shaky camera-work and bad CGI." She then snorted at the looks she was receiving. "What? I watch TV too."

"It wasn't CGI," Chloe informed Katherine as she pulled up her pants leg to show a scar by her ankle, one she'd acquired during the filming of that episode. She then turned to Lois. "If you hadn't been immune to the Puppet Mesmer they'd be wearing our skin and that of our cameramen."

"Twas a Crowning Moment of Awesome, if I do say so myself," Lois beamed.

"Did you ever figure out why you were immune to the Puppet Mesmer?" Ric asked, knowing they were horrible off-topic and yet unable to himself himself from asking.

"Nope, but I'm leaning towards my being too strong of mind for it to work on me." Lois smirked.

Katherine stood. "Let's see if that is true with the Compulsion. Take your vervain necklace off."

Chloe glared at her. "Back off."

"Or what?" Katherine stepped closer menacingly.

Damon grabbed Katherine by the back of her shirt and pulled her away from Chloe.

"Really Damon, any excuse to get your hands all over me." Katherine glared at him as she fixed her shirt. "And anyway, getting back to what is important, even if you can find a way to kill Klaus, what makes you think it is going to be so easy to do so?"

"It's attitudes like that that has left those Original assholes feeling invincible," Damon declared. "If a stake to the heart doesn't kill him, I'm sure decapitation or setting his ass on fire will."

"You're a fool for believing it will be so easy." Katherine merely sneered at him. "The most likely outcome is that we're probably all going to die."

Alaric, sadly, agreed.

-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v -v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v-v

"CUT!" The called was made. "Take five and then start from the top!"

Dean moved out from under the blaring lights and grabbed a towel to dab at the sweat accumulating on his brow and sip some some water from his bottle as he sat down on his chair, not in the mood for all these reshoots today.

"When I was told that there was going to be a message-boy mission I offered my services out of curiosity," a voice announced behind him.

Dean frowned as he turned to see someone he hadn't expected.

Kol Mikealson, one of the Originals, stood behind him, eyeing the place curiously. "I watch the show, you know. Plots get dropped and forgotten, many creature descriptions are completely off the mark, and the whole show can get a bit cheesy every now and again, but that Lois girl is quite fetching." He turned his gaze on Dean. "Is she on set today by any chance?"

Dean stood to face the Original Vampire. "No."

"Pity." Kol pursed his lips as he stepped forwards and reached into his leather jacket's pocket. "Don't look so testy now, you should know who I am and that we're harmless. We're cousins of your kind."

"You're no cousin of mine," Dean narrowed his eyes.

Kol's gaze lowered to Dean's necklace. "Ah, vervain, I see." He shrugged. "Straightforwards then, I like that, no bullshit." He eyed the human. "I'm here as my brother's messenger-boy to hand-deliver invitations for you and your brother to attend a little soiree Niklaus will be throwing, with the explicit understanding that you'll be bringing Chloe Sullivan and Lois Lane as your guests."

Dean sneered. "I wouldn't bring either of them anywhere near you or your brother."

Kol grinned, and it was all teeth as he came near and slipped the invitations onto Dean's seat. "Niklaus just wants to talk, and I think if you just tell the pretty Miss Sullivan about the invitation, you'll find she'llwant to come to the party." He turned and walked away as he plopped some earphones into his ears and turned up the volume of his music. "See you at there."

Dean frowned at Kol's back, eyes narrowed.

Another fantastic chapter. Chloe and the boys (all of them) need to have a sit down and talk. Geez. Everyone's always assuming the worst! Can't we all just get along? I'm serious. A Chloe sandwich with Winchester-Salvatore bread. It'd be the most awesome sandwich ever. :D
17th-Dec-2013 07:56 pm (UTC)
Thankyouthankyou *takes a bow*

They do, boy do they, but definitely won't be having any constructive talk any time soon!

Man I had forgotten how much I absolutely love your writing!! This is so so good. I love Ric fangirling over Lois and Stefan telling her she was family. Damon really needs to take some lessons from his brother on how to make a good first impression on people important to Chloe *grins*

I enjoyed the fighting between Katherine and Damon. I can't believe he called her fat, I snorted out loud at that one. I'm looking forward to seeing what the originals have in store for the group.
