Vampires have gotten surprisingly progressive, taking up Spanish just to preach the good word of Dragula. It’d be impressive if it wasn’t also so relatedly annoying. xD Also, welcome to Nightcorp, where everybody’s got red eyes and if they don’t they’re exploited minority monsters called ghouls working security that apparently have six genders. Jack requests a meet with the vampy boss and the ghouls give him a less than comfortable escort to the elevator. Don’t give up tryna radicalize ‘em Jack, Vive la resistance! It feels surprisingly easy regardless, but maybe it has something to do with this unruly visitor from before-
Yep, surely it does. Flashing back now, apparently Lydia was just here a while ago ready to start chucking wooden stakes around if she had any. Except she doesn’t, so she settles for using magic to basically bully her way into the building and reach the boss, Silas Blofeld. Using the not-Force, she yeets the bigwig into the wall but surprisingly his big wig itself remains tethered. Das a quality wig.
Back to Jack, and Silas is still shaken from Lydia’s visit, so it doesn’t take long for him to crack and return Jack’s favor for stopping the menacing wrath of blinding rats in the building. Namedrop the New Bloods, and scene~
Great chapter, plot is trodding along, and while Jack’s a joy to read, I must say Lydia stole the show this time ‘round. #Lydia4SuperSmashBros.
