A thing I'm working on...
Vampire Billdip Au. (With evolved Vampires of course.) I don’t believe this has been done really, “evolved vampires”, so credit me if you use the idea, (unless I’m wrong, in which case apologies, more notes on what “evolved vampire” entails at the end) but not this story idea itself! This is something i have in the works and will publish on AO3 before the end of May.
Vamp Hunter Dip goes on a hunting spree to track down the vampire that stole his sister, he’s gone to 5 different territories before he enters Bill’s. He doesn’t care about what happens to himself, he only wants to find Mabel before time runs out. Because the other vampires were so easy to off, he thinks Bill will be the same, before even realizing who he’s up against.
A trap is set by Bill to lure the threat (Dipper) in, being the unofficial head of the vampires. He likes what he sees, and smells. Dipper is scented sweeter than anything and stronger than pine needles, his chocolate curls frame a strong jaw and hazel eyes. Bill definitely enjoys the view and decides to play along for awhile/ toying with him at first. “If you don’t have Mabel, then why are you wasting my time?” (Dipper)
“This is estate does isn’t mine it belongs to my brother, and I’m afraid you’ve intruded, therefore you are my business, so you might as well indulge me. I haven’t decided yet what to do with you.” Bill corners him, but Dipper pulls out a stake.
No, Bill’s not disappointed at all. However, he takes advantage of the other’s confidence to turn the tables and make it clear that Dipper won’t make it out without a few puncture wounds.
Dipper refuses, attempting to fight him off, “Don’t you dare you bastard! I have to find my sister, your bloodlust is going to have to be kept in check/ put on hold.”
Bill chuckles, “Like you would agree to a rain check-” he stops, eyes glinting in mischief and curiosity/ mirth. “Oh… Pine Tree~? No one ever wants to be bitten by a vampire… but all you can say for yourself/ plead for your case is your silly goose chase for this… sister of yours. What if I can help you/ offer my assistance?”
“What are you implying?”
Bill hums and cups Dippers cheek fondly, with an all (too) friendly/ toothy smile/ grin. “Nothing you should be averse to… It’s just that/ You see, I’m kind of a big deal to / as unofficial as my title may be, for all intents and purposes the majority of my kin answer to me. I could make the job of finding your sister a lot easier if I saw something worth my while in it.”
“And you already have an idea of what that is, don’t you?” Bill makes no move to agree nor deny the accusation, all the answer Dipper needs, but he wishes Bill would stop tracing his finger a long his jaw. Bill obviously wants him to keep asking questions, might as well play along while they’re at each other’s throats, so to speak. “What is it you want for helping me?” There are no words to express how much Dipper wanted to smack the smirk from his face.
“If you help me with the few rogues of my kind, you’ve had no qualms killing my friends, so do this and I’ll call us even and I won’t tear at your throat/ that pretty throat of yours now.”
Dipper licks his dry lips, “O-okay… i don’t see how that applies to-”
“I wasn’t finished, I will help you find her, but when we find her captor, I want you.”
“You want me to…. what?”
Bill rolls his eyes, impatiently, “My dear, doe eyed temptress… I don’t want you to do anything but comply when the time comes and I introduce you to vampire society. I think that’s fair, return one human to your homeland, and take another to replace it.”
“No! That’s ridiculous! Why would I-? You’d only find some way to trick me into agreeing to whatever you have in mind, no! I won’t!”
Bill growls and moves his face closer to Dipper’s despite the stake pointed at his chest beginning to poke at him. “Dipper Pines, I’m afraid you have no choice. Either we both die here and you never see your precious Mabel again, much less safe at home, or we both live to see another day and you can carry on your search with an ally before you have to say your farewells. Even if you were to somehow manage to kill me first/ without killing yourself, going from vampire to vampire on this blind little escapade of yours is suicide. You’ve offed no one but my lackeys and I’ve underestimated you, so the stalemate we’re in now? Once word gets out that I’m no more? The Vampire hunter will become the vampire hunted.”
Dipper knows he’s telling the truth, but he can’t… can’t listen to him. “You’re lying, I know… as soon as I remove this stake from your chest you’re going to make your move and kill me.”
Bill raised his eyebrow, “Kid… Kill you? Do give me some credit, if i truly wanted that fate for you, I would not have given you enough opportunity to get me in such a compromising position as to make a deal with you. No, I don’t want to kill you. I want to turn you, to claim you… so, is it a deal? I help you, you help me and then we both get what we want when your sister is found?”
Dipper bit his lip, what choice did he have anyway? This was the best he could ask for given their… situation, he shifted his feet a bit, making both of them tense, but neither made a move against the other. “So how do you usually commence/ consummate/ seal your deals? A handshake or…?”a
“a blood oath sounds nice, and I’ve always want to try one.”
“uhhaha no. Not a chance/ nice try. Not happening, nope.”
Bills pout doesn’t last long before a hopeful expression crosses his features as another idea comes to him, “How about a kiss?”
Dipper’s face is a blank slate/ smacks Bill “no.”
Bill rubs at his reddening cheek, “Well, not exactly what I had in mind…”
Bill shrugs and they shake hands, Bill kissing Dip’s before letting go, the brunette snatches his hand back and glares despite his reddening ears and face, further encouraging the vampire.
“Oh, and Dipper? I can still bite you, you know, and not turn you or kill you… so I’d watch your neck,” he says this with a hot breath by his ear, before pulling back with a wink and letting Dipper rest in his home before they head out. It’s almost dawn, and they both work at night, ironically enough, he might as well stay and rest up for the night. (Is it his own castle? If it is, he has his staff prepare a meal for Dipper and wine for himself, having a reputation as a wealthy aristocrat as well as head vamp. / it’s an abandoned one and he offers dip a ride, or Dipper just falls asleep either way, he ends up locked in the room he stays in because Bill doesn’t want him running away or snooping about or doing some other unreasonable/ irrational/ brash/ reckless thing that could get him hurt/ he could do to hurt himself. He is to be his intended after all. Can’t risk a hair on his pretty little head.
Dipper glares when he tells him as much, “Not yours (to claim), at least not yet, not until Mabel is found”
“of course not./ wouldn’t dream of it. I am, after all, a gentleman.”
“could have surprised me, Cipher.”
Bill reigns offense, “I am truly wounded by your lack of trust!”
((((Vamps are still warm blooded and alive, not undead, having evolved over time, some can even consume human foods, but it’s not the same, some only feed off of blood. Bill can live off of both, which helps him control his urges and keep his composure, despite being of an old, pure, proud and strong family line. He tends to use it to his full advantage and it unsettled some others. Bill likes the taste, the fear and the thrill of hunting, but… he can control himself, which is why he is often overlooked. (How does Dipper find him?) Vamps are still very sensitive to the sun, so Bill has a parasol, gloves and a hat at all times. Or he wears a veil during others. Bill is just weaker during the day and prone to serious heat exposure from just under an hour of being out on a sunny day. Any more and he could die of heat exposure. Bill doesn’t let on at first, but Dipper is an observant owl )))[If u want updates on this story via Tumblr, msg me or comment “Pineapple” so I know you want to be bothered with a heads up. I also have the first chapter for the story, not the one shot and some additional info somewhere on my page… I’m too tired to add a link just yet.]
