Hey, Bakertown may still be there. Maybe they could have gone there to finish at the future Bakertown HS?
They have a pill for that. Or they will...come 3535.
But right now they're only in the 2600s :p

Was just a thought anyway. Maybe an idea what to do kf anyone wanted to do a fanfic of thm trying to finish school in the future.
Pointless arguing is one of the three pillars upon which the Internet is built. The other two are of course cat pictures and porn.

Apart from Aoi and Uri, are there any regular anime clubs at Mooreland State University? What kind of relations does Aoi have with them?

Isn't Aoi House enough? Ha ha!

(Uri House is over in Lawndale.)

Thanks for the reply. I asked because I'm the scheduler for our university anime club (AnimeUC), and I was wondering if Aoi House would try to destroy or ally with us if we were on the same campus. What is their view of non-yaoi anime fans? Here they seem to be trying to convert Alex and Sandy.

Another question: are Aoi House's movie nights open to the public? (Our club has one member who's probably into yaoi and would want to go.)

They like all kinds of anime and manga... the girls just really like shonen-ai and yaoi.

If you can brave the insanity (and maybe sign a release to be secretly filmed in the process).

I became aware of VC/PMS after their write-up in the OVA game, and I've been reading the entire archive. As a result, I have a ton of questions after discussion on the forum has mostly died down. I'll try asking them in small batches as long as Adam has the time and good will to answer them.

Starting with the vampire state from the first volume, can the VC's breed of vampire, homo nocturnis, eat normal food or subsist on animal blood?

Would shooting one in the head (but not blowing it off) affect one? Would a garlic epipen like J.C. Summerfield uses be an effective weapon?

Even if they don't burn up in sunlight, are they weaker in it? Would pulling out one's fangs weaken her? Are they especially vulnerable to fire?

Apologies if this is too much at once. TIA

Hominus nocturna.

In addition to blood, we've seen the Vampire Cheerleaders drink blood coffee and sip blood from a melon.

It'd probably really piss them off...

Yep.

Depends how recently that tanned.

Would pulling out one's fangs weaken her?
Never thought about it.

Are they especially vulnerable to fire?
Yes. And if they're out in the sun without sun screen, they start to smoke and before being engulfed in fire.

Consider the movie Pretty In Pink. Molly Ringwald's character (Andie) has geeky Duckie pining over her, but Andie has a crush on and ends up with hunky Blane. So Leonard is like Duckie... there's chemisty due to them being long-time friends, but Leonard's been friend zoned for life.
Even though the story is over and Heather FINALLY apologized for what she did to Leonard(10 years after he left), I still find it hard to like Heather. Especially when she knew of his feelings for her and took advantage of them! Leonard warned Heather about the cheerleaders, she didn't listen and got attacked by them! The next day, she TOTALLY blows him off! Then, when Leonard tries to save her again, Heather back stabs her OWN friend by helping to make him into a thrall! She did feel bad about it at first, but then she got used to having him be a slave and treated him like dirt! Then, after Leonard was free from their spell by the P.M.S., he tried to save her, YET AGAIN, at prom! He thought Heather became a vampire and only did what she did because of Lorna/Lori! She then admits to Leonard that she had a choice all along! She then chooses to go back and get captured along with the others ONLY to find out later that it was a setup by Cressida Harrow to get all of them! Leonard, being the coolest guy ever AND also being a TRUE FRIEND that he is, he found OUT where they were held and LEAD the P.M.S. to save them! Only after 10 years since he left does she FINALLY apologize for the way she and the other girls have treated him! I honestly can for give Heather for ALL of the stuff she did. ALL OF IT! If she didn't say, and I quote, "I HAD A CHOICE!" That's the worst part because, not only did Heather choose to be a vampire, but she also chose to do the stuff that she did to her parents, to her schoolmates and EVEN to her BEST FRIEND FROM CHILDHOOD! After ALL that, she then decides to have Charlote pass on the message to Leonard that Heather apologizes for what she did to him instead of waiting to get to the timeline that he's at to tell him in person! Heather wasn't sorry when she admitted having a choice, but she was sorry 10 years after Leonard left!

This might sound like that Family Guy episode when Quagmire confronted Brian and explained why he hates him, but this is EXACTLY like that! After ALL Heather did, after ALL the pain she caused Leonard, I'm supposed to forgive her after her phoned in apology!? Leonard will because he's the greatest guy in ALL of space and time, but I don't. For me, she needs to do A LOT MORE than that apology.

A few more vampire questions.

Can the invitation to enter a dwelling be renounced or withdrawn like in the Russian Night Watch series, or voided with magic as in Buffy? Is glamour strong enough to make the target do self-destructive actions or harm a loved one?

Going into the psychological aspects, you've said that "Being a vampire overrides your conscious so that it acts on a carnal desire to feed." and "It's pretty common for vampires to go a little crazy after being turned, though, but it eventually evens out."
So they start as sociopaths but can regain their empathy and conscience? Can the process be stopped or reversed, esp. if the vampire kills someone by draining all the victim's blood? (Forever Knight's vampire had this happen the two times he sired.) Has Lori ever had to kill out of control progeny?
Is a feeding frenzy like Suki does in ch. 4 or Jasper's attack on Bella in Twilight always possible?

The trouble with having the vampires loving being vampires and the cursed aspects downplayed is that they start to become superheroes with fangs, like the vampyres of House of Night. Then you'd expect a lot more hominus nocturna around, or at least people bugging the VC to turn them. (House of Night gets around this by making vampirism caused by junk DNA.) We've only seen Lori's childer, and those were all teenage girls. Is there a problem with her childer siring, or with turning older women/ males?
If Heather's sister wanted to become a vampire cheerleader herself, would Heather help her or try to talk her out of it?

A couple of art questions for VCiS&T?!

Did Michael Shelfer give Leonard a cooler hairstyle, like he did for J.C. Summerfield in VCMD?

This page led to some claims here that the vampire hunters (not a mob, they were organized with special anti-vampire crossbows) were the villains because panel six showed them with "sadistic grins". I can't see it. The one on the left seems totally straight-faced. The one on the right only has the left side of his face visible, so it's hard to tell if it's a grin or a grimace from trying to hold down a super-strong vampire. So what was the intent in the script and on the the artist? Ironically, we see an unmistakeable sadistic grin on Lorna's face in panel three here.

Going over the Aoi archives, is there anything romantic between Dean Perkins and Ms. Addison?

As a swimmer, isn't Nina worried about smoking decreasing her lung capacity? Would she ever use e-cigarettes?

How do the lines at Hatsucon compare to the SDCC?
