EFFY: Oh.
EFFY: Um...
EFFY: And... you're a friend? A-A friendly demon?
EFFY: Like... You haven't...
EFFY: You haven't done anything to Grandma, have you?!

AUBIN: Hahaha!
NIMAH: Oh my goodness...! Sorry, dear, I can see how you would assume that, but...
AUBIN: Effy, what do you think a demon is?

> Effy: wait aren't those bad. am i missing something

EFFY: Um, I... I mean... I just thought...
EFFY: I-I mean! It's in the name, right? It's right in the name! Because, um... You know, demons, demonic... It's...
EFFY: Isn't it all about evil stuff??
CLOVER: 'Sfunny ya should say that.

> Clover: And do you happen to look a bit like a humanoid cat with horns in some other form maybe ?

CLOVER: Lemme guess, Aubon--
AUBIN: Aubin.
CLOVER: This ain't what ya really look like, is it? Ya usually got horns, yeah? Maybe FUR?
AUBIN: Indeed.
AUBIN: I don't suppose you've met one of my kind before.
CLOVER: Not exactly.
NIMAH: ... Actually, there is something I've been meaning to ask.
NIMAH: I would hope it's only a strange coincidence, but...

Good thing you told them to stay put. They sound like they're ready to tear out the French dude's hair.

AUBIN: ... But?
NIMAH: You can hear them from here... Those creatures, behind the next house.
CLOVER: My place.
NIMAH: Yes.

[Image: jiqUNWk.png]

NIMAH: Sabrina and Clover told me they found them a few days ago, and that they're connected to some sort of demon...
NIMAH: What... do you make of it?
AUBIN: Well...

[Image: U0h9dRY.png]

AUBIN: These creatures are familiars, indeed, bound to a demon. But, and I assume this is what you're worried about, they are not unique. In fact, they happen to be a popular choice for demons who want companions.
NIMAH: So you mean...

> Clover: Oh no, your birds have brought a bunch of useless junk they've gathered to try and curry your favor.

[Image: D0LZslx.png]

AUBIN: Exactly.
AUBIN: There is no need to fear the return of an old friend less savoury than I.
AUBIN: That IS what you were going to ask, yes?
NIMAH: ... Yes. Thank you.
NIMAH: I never realised before how... wordy you are.
AUBIN: I imagine I mustn't make a very good impression when I only know ten words in the only language my conversation partner speaks!

>Aubin: Point out to Clover that taking care of demonic familiars is a big responsibility. She'll need to feed and water them, take them for walks, and allow them to feast on the unfiltered wickedness of mankind every blood moon.

EFFY: Um...
EFFY: Mr. Aubin?
AUBIN: Again, no need for formalities, yes?
EFFY: R... Right! I was saying, um... I mean, I was going to ask... W-Who are you talking about?
AUBIN: Hm?
EFFY: You mentioned, um, an “old friend”...
NIMAH: Oh.

[Image: ptDJjpy.png]

AUBIN: Well, I did also say I see no reason to fear the aforementioned friend’s return. She IS long-dead.

[Image: rty7jMn.png]

AUBIN: ... Although, come to think of it, so are you. Not quite as long-dead, but still.
NIMAH: Oh... No, you’re... you’re most likely right. She would never be authorised to leave. The possibility scared me, but...
AUBIN & EFFY: “Authorised”?

> Clover: Your birds want attention. Give them head pats and tummy rubs.

[Image: SfE71cd.png]

AUBIN: Ah-- Are you having any trouble, Clover?
CLOVER: No! Shut up!!
AUBIN: ... Are you sure? I can’t imagine you have handled demonic familiars before, so I was wondering if I could offer any helpful advice, that’s all.
CLOVER: Ugh, go back to whatever you were talkin’ about!
AUBIN: Do let me know if you are not yet aware of their special dietary needs during blood moons.
CLOVER: THAT’S NOT A THING!!!

> So how does this work, does Aubin need to be invited to your home before he can step in? Do you really want to invite a demon to your house?

[Image: V5OfJdP.gif]

AUBIN: But speaking of the unimaginable! Nimah, you simply must tell me what you mean.
AUBIN: If Ivra would not be “authorised”, I assume, to walk among the living, then I must assume that YOU are, and that there are rules governing this!
AUBIN: Not only that, but your mere presence before me has the most vast implications! Life after death has been one of the great unknowns ever since the dawn of mankind and now its mechanisms may be within my grasp!
EFFY: Um... Yeah! It... It’s all really cool, so... So let’s all talk about ourselves inside! L-Like we said earlier, right?
EFFY: W-Wait, do you need, um, a formal invitation, or...
AUBIN: No, no, you’re thinking of vampires.
EFFY: VAMPIRES ARE REAL???

[Image: NBz3hLP.gif]

CLOVER: Yeah, yeah, y’all got a lotta questions for each other...
CLOVER: Just take turns or somethin’. We’re gonna be at it all day no matter what, right?

Clover: So, that's not a thing, but if it were a thing, what would I need to watch out for on a blood moon?

and seconding typeandkey's first suggestion because, come on, obviously if the subject can be vampires then the subject should be vampires

Aubin: Be French, I mean really really French, like I mean so French that French people would go, "Whoa that is too French"
Aubin: In response to any questions Effy has overly explain everything in demonic terminology that she does not understand. Produce a chart from your jacket showing graphs and numbers that are so esoteric to the human mind that they cause a temporary rift in Effy's sanity.

[Image: mA81szh.png]

EFFY: What are vampires like? Do you know any?? Are they like Dracula or like Alucard or like Edward? Do they actually sparkle???
AUBIN: Haha!
AUBIN: This isn’t quite what I had in mind, but I certainly don’t mind sharing what I know before I satisfy my own curiosity.

[Image: Y4XOIHc.png]

AUBIN: If life after death is one of the great unknowns, then perhaps unlife is God’s way of telling us not to seek an answer. Of course, others would argue that God has nothing to do with these creatures whatsoever. Do they possess souls? Are they demons? Are they unworthy of the title for having been born human, or are they simply beneath it by virtue of their being? What can be said for a fact is that they are bloodsucking parasites - but then again, undeath is not a requirement for such a nature.
AUBIN: I have written about vampires, both for a human audience who is better kept in the dark and for my fellow longhorns, but I have never had the opportunity to speak to one.
AUBIN: ... To my knowledge, anyway.
AUBIN: They must keep to themselves. It is natural, I suppose, since no good came of the last time they were in the public eye. The dead rising from their graves all over Europe, making more of their kind in droves and meeting their ultimate demise just as abundantly... No, I am quite sure they prefer to carry out their deeds in the dark, in more ways than one.
AUBIN: ... What was that about sparkles?

[Image: rddMR50.png]

EFFY: N... Never mind! And, um, thank you!
EFFY: But, but are they really all evil or--
CLOVER: Wait.
CLOVER: My turn to ask a question.
EFFY: O-Oh, right.

> Clover: Not to (mercyfully) change the subject but Do they know a green haired kitsune named Selena

[Image: 7FziD41.png]

CLOVER: Ya know that girl with the crazy hair, don’t ya?
AUBIN: ... Who?
CLOVER: Selena! The fox lady with the green hair!
AUBIN: Selena...?
CLOVER: She summoned the freakin’ birds!
CLOVER: Look, she said they were her friend’s birds and I heard ya talkin’ to Nimah, so don’t ya try to pull one over me or anythin’! I’m not dumb!
AUBIN: Ah.
AUBIN: Of course, I never assumed you were. Forgive my hesitation. I sincerely wasn’t sure who you meant.
AUBIN: But I do know her, yes. What of it?

>Clover: Apply your palm to your face. You were going to be more tactful, but yes, that sums it up.
