I love how snarky Bela is and her interactions with her fellow slayers. I love all the little things you bring up about being a slayer - how she has weapons everywhere, the culture and paranoia around turning into a vampire, how slayers make a living. It makes her lifestyle a lot more believable.

This is admittedly a very refreshing take on vampires (it's like a parody of the YA vampire genre by adding an irreverant attitude to the traditional vampire slaying - so neither old fashioned vampire slaying or simplistic vampire romance). I'm honestly curious about where this story will go - who is the note from, will there be any Twilight 'vegetarian' vampires showing up ever (and I imagine if there were, Bela's reaction to them would be hilarious) and what type of weird situations Bela will end up in as she continues to hunt vampires.

Thanks for writing this! Glad I ran into it.

The thing I love most about BtNVS is its feel of authenticity. It dispels all of the silly parts of a lot of vampire stories, offering realism inside of a supernatural setting in the place of brooding monologues and epic battles against the evil vampire menace. In that regard, it is a very effective parody.

When I started reading this, I was worried that you were going to abandon that genuineness with some fabricated mess. It honestly felt like it was Bela on the set of some campy teen show, acting out her life.

And then I got past the introduction, and I found that was not the case at all. You did exactly as you advertised, revising, and trimming the fat. I can't tell you which I prefer, but this revised version is just as good, if not better than the original, and I feel as if you should continue with it.
