Look I love you Jess really and your a vamp a young one so your gonna have problems and make mistakes every one does but if it you wouldnt want Hoyt to Glamour you, it might not be the best idea to Glamour him. Dont abuse the power of the word Love. If everyone used the excuse that it was because they loved that person was the reason for their actions then people in the world would get away with a lot, and humans cant Glamour they just lie. So think of useing Glamour a a way to lie, and if you keep using it then you just keep lieing to yourself and Hoyt and then your as bad as his mama thinks.

And by the way you might want to becareful that Hoyt dosent see this. <3

@Voudoun Eh hm... first you say...

Well, Jess, girl's gotta have some secrets.

...and then you diss glamouring on account of my example?

So what you are saying is that glamouring is a no-no for small insignificant things... but for the really serious stuff... then it's ok?

Can't quite say I agree with you on this one. Hiding a fart or equivalent... well that's allright in my book. But big stuff... like my partner trying to hide letting someone else feed on them, despite a promise not to?! *growl*

hey sweetie,

glamouring is a natural part of WHAT you are, the only rules you can live by in that aspect is those given by WHO you are. Theres a big difference between the two. Now it is important for you to keep in mind that you are the king's childe there for dont be over zelous with your glamouring as now you have a reputation to up hold for both you and bill, On the other hand he is still your maker, you need to talk to him as such. weve all been through it darlin'.

keep safe,

@Joe Well is a tough one. On one had as a human I want to say that you were making out with another guy at a club and that's not cool at all. But your a vampire and that guy is food. So now it's like saying that your only allowed to eat one type of food for the rest of your life like hamburgers, and now your a bad person because you had a piece of chicken. :)

See the problems we have, hm? Human food, no matter how disgusting it is... smelly... greasy... over-done.. under-done... too salty... too bland... too dead... at least have one huge(!) advantage: it doesn't talk back to you and whine about how it wants to be eaten.

For that alone I want to see bovines and pigs evolve enough to speak. That'll be a hoot! And unless some sucker with a stake do me in I'll be around to giggle at the spectacle when it happens. :D

Hi Jessica!
First of all you're my most favorite vampire, aside from Eric for having yummy body, I really really like you!
I envy you actually, I also wanna be a vampire, I'm fed up with my life right now and I want to try something a little bit extreme and special.
I like the fact that you can glamour people well now especially Hoyt. Haha. Don't worry your secret is safe with us. ;)

Anyways, keep on surprising us. Loving your bad side, but please not too much. Hope I could meet you soon.

P.S. Can you be my maker?

Much love.

Frances xoxo

Jessica, get rid of the doll. Seriously, with witches and vampires and werewolves being real, God only knows what mythical (or maybe not so mythical) power could be controlling it :/

im slightly disappointed, though i understand its hard to deal with the pain of being stupid and hurting someone you love. You cant always glamour away everything. Think of when you date another vamp, you cant glamour away the bad things in those relationships.. It was a very immature thing to do.. i just hope it doesnt come back to bite you in the ass.. metaphorically speaking ;)>

Jessica although you are a "newborn" vampire with the ability to glamor that doesnt make it right.When dealing with humans, since you used to be one, you know the difference between right and wrong. When it comes to love, the heart is one thing you cannot decieve. As a woman you should have admitted to Hoyht what you did and allowed yourself to face the consequences without glamor to deal with and accept them. I have delt with infidelity in my own personal life with a boyfriend, and i had to make that painful choice to tell him in person other than let him hear of it from someone someone else, as Bill told you. But you should have gave him that choice as a person to let him decide how to handle the situation himself without you deciding it for him. That was wrong for you to do. You have to wonder deep inside if it wasnt for the glamor would he have choosen to forgive you from his heart not from your power to make him do so. True love is honest, and its not to be messed with. Im really dissapointed in you, and i hope you "glamor" him with the truth and let him decide for himself. Please do not ever do that again. If its meant to be it will be, Not because of magic, because the best magic, the true magic, comes from the heart. Let HIM decide. Hope things work out for the best!

Jessica, I'm going to be frank. I think you probably shouldn't have glamoured Hoyt. I understand it was done out of love for Hoyt, but it seems a little controlling to me. Seeing as that's in the past though, I'm sure you and Hoyt will be able to move forward smoothly :). Just some parting advice, don't go gung-ho on glamouring Hoyt or else he might end up like Ginger at Fangtasia.
