I hadn't commented on anyone's post, but it eventually occurred to me I wanted to do so, so I asked Twitter to help... before realising that miss_s_b had already gvien me a prompt back in June, when she said I should write Lesbian Vampire Killers the way it ought to be done - with lesbians who kill vampires.
THE PROMPT: Lesbians who are vampire killers.
TYPE: BBC series of a two hour pilot and six hour-long episodes per season.
RATING: 18, for horror elements and rampant gayness.
OPENING THEME: Not a Pretty Girl – Ani DiFranco
CLOSING THEME: Wuthering Heights – China Drum
SYNOPSIS: Kit and Nadia are a perfectly ordinary young couple who aren't quite sure what they want in life. They've been together a few years and there have been ups and downs along the way, and recently it's been mostly downs – there's a big elephant in that room but neither of them talk about what happened two months ago, to anyone.
Then, one day, Nadia meets a man who nearly steers her away, and in the course of getting back together, the two girls find a new purpose in life they'd never dreamed of.
