My First Fanfic

Achtung! I have ceased to write this story. Sorry.

No, that isn't a childrens book I'm reading. I have actually started to write a story from the whole Skulduggery Pleasant theme. It's mostly to develop my persona, Lorelei Fetch, but I have included Lyra Blue and promised to include Nixion Strange.
So yeah, this is it so far. I hope I can write some more over the weekend, but TEOTW might take up too much of my time....we'll see.

btw I'm thinking I'll call it L&L for now (Lyra and Lorelei) but once again, we'll see.

It was hot. Sticky, stinking, burning heat that made the air shimmer over the sun baked rocks of the desert. Lorelei shielded her eyes from the sun as she stared out over the god-cursed landscape. She hated it when it was hot. The Bespoke clothes she wore kept her body cool; but she could still feel the heat nagging at her mind. She couldn’t think when it was hot. It made her want to curl up in a freezer and eat chocolate cake. It was because of the heat that she had left Australia in the first place.

Yet here she was again. Oh well she thought, at least I don’t live here anymore. She turned her attention back to finding the vampires. She knew they were living somewhere nearby, probably in one of the caves that a lot of Coober Pedy residents preferred. She just had to work out which one.

Lyra Blue was waiting for her at the general store. Lorelei would be glad for the help, and Lyra was one of her oldest friends. They had met while doing some combat training together and became fast friends. If they weren’t busy they still sparred occasionally; but that wasn’t often.

Before she stepped out onto the street she checked her weapons. The last thing she needed was to be caught unprepared. But it was apparently too hot for anyone but Lyra and herself.

“Hiya Fetch! How ya been, got a couple of little pests I hear?” Lyra and Lorelei always called each other by their last names. It was a habit they had picked up from action movies. “I’m as good as I can be, considering I’ve gotta get rid of two vampires in one day. What about you Blue?”

“All in a day’s work Fetch, you know that. But god it’s hot! Can we take this inside for now?”

“Just try and stop me! I wish these sorts of things wouldn’t happen to me, I thought I was done with this place you know?”

“Yeah, yeah you give me that every time. Come on.”

They got two ice creams and sat down below the air conditioner. Lyra licked her double scoop of chocolate and gestured for Lorelei to begin.

“Right, so the idea is, because I’m so carefree and jobless the Aussie Sanctuary thinks it can pick on me. I keep telling them I won’t do any Aussie jobs and they keep upping the price. Apparently though they are low on resources, they are not low on cash. Also they claim I’m still legally an Australian citizen.

Anyway, Grand Mage whatshisname is gonna give me two grand to get rid of these vamps that are causing trouble and I heard you had something new developed.”

Lyra grinned. She had indeed been busy at the bomb range lately and with some devastating results. “You just wait til ya see this Fetch. You won’t even know those vampires were there once we’re done with them.” Lorelei grinned back over her cookies and cream.

“Then what are we waiting for?”


The vampires were behind a hot pink door with a unicorn painted on it. They knew this because it was the only door that was locked with magic. No one had answered the front door, so they had picked the lock. Now they had come to the unicorn door and it simply would not be picked. Magic wasn’t working either.

“I always knew unicorns were evil,” Lorelei sighed, “looks like we’re going to have abandon stealth.”

“Not to worry Fetch. I was never one for sneaking up on vampires anyway.” Lyra pulled some C4 out of her bag as she spoke and pressed a small ball onto the door. “Bit more than that wouldn’t you say? I mean the door is hot pink,” Lorelei said.

“Probably,” Lyra put another couple of chunks along the door, pressed a relatively short fuse into one and lit it with her Zippo.

The explosion was loud, but barely noticeable from outside the cave. You could walk past and not know anything had happened; if you ignored the faintly smoking front door that was. “Good job Blue,” Lorelei grinned and gestured to the door, “shall we?”

“We shall,” replied Lyra and the two girls walked through the blackened entryway and came face to face with at least two dozen vampires.
