Buy 1 Bunny Get 25 Free!!

This is a visual representation of our weekend.

See it started on one idea … then all the others joined in.

Oh believe me the whole story idea works, and actually ties a lot of stuff together.

But now were exhausted and the living room is filled with bunnies.

While Bob and Bob 2 are just laughing hysterically, sitting on top of the kitchen table looking out of their bunny domain.

Sylum Inspiration: Thomas Jefferson

Oceania: Legal Advisor


As I’m working on a story set in Oceania thought it would be good to showcase some of the characters!

Thomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776), and the third President of the United States (1801–1809). He was an ardent proponent of democracy and embraced the principles of republicanism and the rights of the individual with worldwide influence. At the beginning of the American Revolution, he served in the Continental Congress, representing Virginia, and then served as a wartime Governor of Virginia (1779–1781). In May 1785, he became the United States Minister to France and later the first United States Secretary of State (1790–1793) serving under President George Washington. In opposition to Alexander Hamilton’s Federalism, Jefferson and his close friend, James Madison, organized the Democratic-Republican Party, and later resigned from Washington’s cabinet. Elected Vice President in 1796 in the administration of John Adams, Jefferson opposed Adams, and with Madison secretly wrote the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions, which attempted to nullify the Alien and Sedition Acts.

Elected president in what Jefferson called the “Revolution of 1800”, he oversaw acquisition of the vast Louisiana Territory from France (1803), and sent out the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804–1806), and later three others, to explore the new west. Jefferson doubled the size of the United States during his presidency. His second term was beset with troubles at home, such as the failed treason trial of his former Vice President Aaron Burr. When Britain threatened American shipping challenging U.S. neutrality during its war with Napoleon, he tried economic warfare with his embargo laws, which only impeded American foreign trade. In 1803, President Jefferson initiated a process of Indian tribal removal to the Louisiana Territory west of the Mississippi River, having opened lands for eventual American settlers. In 1807 Jefferson drafted and signed into law a bill that banned slave importation into the United States.

A leader in the Enlightenment, Jefferson was a polymath in the arts, sciences, and politics. Considered an important architect in the classical tradition, he designed his home Monticello and other notable buildings. Jefferson was keenly interested in science, invention, architecture, religion, and philosophy; he was an active member and eventual president of the American Philosophical Society. He was conversant in French, Greek, Italian, and Latin, read Spanish, and studied other languages and linguistics, interests which led him to found the University of Virginia after his presidency. Although not a notable orator, Jefferson was a skilled writer and corresponded with many influential people in America and Europe throughout his adult life.

During his time in the White House, Thomas Jefferson became good friends with Henry Sturges. The two would talk philosophy, history, politics for hours. When he discovered his friend was a Vampire, and was the one that helped Washington during the Revolutionary War, he requested to be Turned.

You don’t get it during these three days – you’ll have to make friends with someone who did.  There will be a ritual burning of the story on October 1st.

I know this story has a lot of myth/legend around it.  Let me say this now – there is nothing in this story relevant to any Sylum Canon.

Put these dates on your calendar! This will be your only chance!

Sylum Inspiration: Donald Flack Jr.

Sylum: Member

Born into a Chosen Family, Don has grown up around Vampires. He’s had a heavy responsibility on him all his life, between being the son of a decorated Police Officer and a respected Chosen One. He followed in his father’s footsteps and became a Detective for the NYPD.

Though always a Chosen One, he hasn’t had full contact with either Sylum Clan and/or Tallikut Clan. It wasn’t until his friend and colleague Daniel Messer was attacked and Turned Without Consent that he was pulled into the inner workings of a Vampire Clan. Soon after Danny’s Turning Don was reunited with Hannibal King and informed he was the Hunter’s Mate.
