An Interview Without a Vampire
As our newest member of The Midnight Society could not be located for an interview on this, the day of her birth, I took the liberty of conducting it without her.
The Davis Girl (TDG): Are you ready to be interviewed, Victoria Nations?
Victoria Nations (VN): Yes! This is very exciting! Such an honor to be interviewed by THE The Davis Girl! Rumors of your interviewing prowess are not exaggerated!
TDG: Very true. Hello Midnight Society Readers. I am joined today via imagicaffeine by Victoria Nations. Victoria, welcome.

TDG: Well, now I’m hungry.
VN: Here, take this year supply of pop-tarts that change flavor depending on your particular tastes. And here’s a bajillion dollars. Just because. And a unicorn name Frederick.
TDG: Delightful. Don’t mind if I do. We’re done here.
Dear Victoria Nations,
You put the creep in creeptastic and I am so glad you’ve allowed us slither our way into your life. You’ve been a champion of TMS since before I can remember and that thaws my heart. So, here, from my brains to your plate, is The Thing That Reminds Me of You.
The Davis Girl
Welcome to our newest member! And…
This calls for cake.
I have arranged for a fuzzy friend to visit you later.
Have the creepiest day ever. Everyone is screaming about your special day.
Best horror wishes,
Happy Birthday, Victoria!
In honor of this wonderful day, I bring you a couple of gifts to share with the whole family:
A nice game of D&D
And a story you can all read around the campfire!
Have a great birthday!
We became fast friends in the Camp NaNo cabin over our love of all things goth…
Now that you’re a Midnighter, we totally need to have a dance-off!
Here’s hoping your birthday is filled with witchy tunes, stripey socks and ALL THE COOL, DARK THINGS!
Love & stardust…
Happy birthday lovely lady. You are so kind and wonderful, creative and hilarious, thoughtful and brilliant. I’m so thankful you were born and even happier to call you friend!
We can’t wait to sacrifice you…I mean, celebrate you. Don’t forget to come to the Midnight Society mansion tonight and don’t tell anyone where you’re going…
Happy birthday! You know I love my spirits so here’s one for you!
