So, Cassandra, tell us a little bit about Dark Dates…
Well, strictly between us – we’re very discreet, so we don’t like to shout about it – Dark Dates is a dating agency with a difference. We cater to humans and vampires who want to get together for love, adventure or feeding. I started it a few years back after I dated a vampire myself for a while, and it really took off after Twilight and True Blood when suddenly everyone wanted their own vampire.
Isn’t it dangerous?
Well, the vampires tend not to be – London has been at peace for decades and the way they keep that peace is to not kill people, so they rely on consensual feeding. Anyone breaking that rule will find that the vampires take a very robust line in self-regulation… Though I must admit lately my business has taken more than its fair share of knocks, not least when someone tried to blow up one of my parties.
I know, right? You try to just make a living and suddenly you find yourself in the middle of a supernatural war. Though honestly, the way my life is going lately that’s starting to seem like just another day at the office.
Wow. OK. So, other than vampires, do you cater for any other supernatural creatures?
Yes, we’re very open. My colleague Medea is a witch, and her girlfriend is a shifter, and my sort-of ex-sort-of-boyfriend is… well, let’s just say he’s definitely not entirely human, so there’s no bias against any species. Though I am slightly wary of werewolves as I’ve heard they can be a little lacking in impulse control…
We hear that one of London’s most powerful vampires is a regular at your events…
We also heard that a certain hunter takes a very personal interest in your business…
Oh, God. Cain. Yup, it definitely adds a frisson of danger when you’re running a dating agency for vampires but at the same time you’re having an on-off relationship with one of the world’s fiercest hunters, who believes all vampires should be staked on sight. Luckily the fact that London is peaceful has stopped him doing anything too drastic… yet. Though I start to get nervous every time Laclos and Cain are in the same room…
