Summary: I came here out of a desperate need for something different. I expected to feel out of place. I didn’t expect to be skipping through the darkened streets of Volterra with a 1500 year old vampire who looked—and acted—like he was fifteen. AU VampSlash, NC-17
A/N: Written for the second round of the Twilight No Stress Love Fest. The prompt was:
Edward’s tired of spending summers alone. Without the distraction of school to fill the days, all he ever does is read or play his piano while his family pairs off and does their own thing. Perhaps it’s time for him to reconsider Aro’s offer. Or, at least spend a summer with the Volturi to see how he would fit in while trying to maintain his "special diet." But, of course, he’s going to need someone to show him around while he’s there and teach him the rules. They can each learn a little bit from each other, while figuring themselves out along the way.
The story occurs in a post New Moon timeline in an AU where Bella never moved to Forks. God only knows why Edward went to Volterra in New Moon anyway, but hey, lets just suspend our disbelief, shall we? In other suspensions, I’ve aged Alec a little from canon, for the purposes of this fic he was 15-16 years old when he was changed. Also for the purposes of the story, Edward is sometimes a little more emotionally youthful than in canon. I’m just fucking with canon all over the place :) Oh, the freedom! Oh yeah, this is total fluff, at least by vamp standards.
Warnings: Underage sexual activity… kind of. But not really. I mean, there is sex, but whether or not it’s underage is subjective. Oh, and it’s mostly gratuitous.
Thanks: venis-envy, for giving a prompt she knew I wouldn’t be able to resist; to sapphirescribe, for doing a marvellous preread for me; and to my wonderful beta, Dellaterra.
