on the variations of pale, what would a POC vampire look like? does their skin get lighter so they just look kinda tan? or would they get even darker so they can blend into the night better? These are the questions people!
Or imagine the one who loves you/you love the most being your pet dog. a tiny chihuahua going into the deep dark woods because master must return. a tiny bork vs a snarling growl and *poof* Jerry is back and snuggling fido.
