The Last Supper – by Blackswan Rose

I was at Aura’s place again, this time with my boyfriend and hers. I asked her again in private if she was ready to feed. Again, she said no. I sighed. Things had been tense between her and I ever since she vamped out a few weeks earlier, when I’d refused to feed her because we were both drunk. She’d declined to feed since then, despite my offering, maybe to punish herself for vamping out like that, maybe to keep our friendship as “normal” as possible. Continue reading

Aura took the train to my side of town this morning. I met her at the station, after going to the pharmacy to re-stock on micropore and butterfly strips. “You must be hungry,” I said. “It’s been-”
“-5 days” She said. Continue reading


Into The Night – by Rose Dantis

My name is Rose. I ‘m a long-time cutter, and I donate blood to a Vampyre called Aura. This is my blog.

Aura met me at work on Friday evening and we took the train to town together. Waiting outside the station for a cab to take us to her place, a dronk bergie stumbled across the street. Seeing us, he stopped and said, “Ladies… you make me think of… something… spicy.” It was the beginning of the most incredible night I’ve ever had.  Continue reading


Second Cut – by Rose Dantis

Silver spoonLast week SAVN posted “Communion” – an article about a sanguine Vampyre and a Swan meeting for the first time, describing their very first feeding together. Rose is a donor to a sanguine Vampyre, Aura. Both are members of the SAVA and live and work in Cape Town. In her follow-up article on her new blog, Rose provides her personal insight into some of the lessons learned through their subsequent communions, and the bond that is developing between them.
