Offering to substitute? Damon has me on a diet but willing throats are allowed.
How about I give you a nice stake instead?

Meeting the Parents
Hazel jumped slightly when Meredith touched her head – she hadn’t been expecting it and right now she was feeling very sensitive to everything. But she relaxed a little, and Meredith kissed her forehead. She said she was going to get them and Hazel almost wanted to ask Meredith not too. If she asked would Meredith not let them see her? Maybe if she made a big enough fuss but she didn’t want to do that. She did want to see them. She just wished she didn’t have to feel so freaked out about it.
She sat quietly in her room, clinging to her stuffed animal even tighter, a part of her wanting to hide under the bed like she had done when she’d become a wolf pup that first time at the hospital. The room was so silent and it made her that much more nervous. She flinched a little when Meredith came back in the room again. She said her new mom and dad’s names for the first time, and Hazel focused in on the people walking into the room behind Meredith and just stared at them silently with wide eyes.
My new mommy and daddy. She was filled with fear and hope too; these were the people who were going to love her and take care of her.They were right here in front of her but she couldn’t find any words to say. She looked at the woman, and she looked nice. The man… She wasn’t sure about him. Even though she knew her new dad wouldn’t be like her dad, it was hard for her not to see a man and be frightened, and to remember all the things her father had done to hurt her. She hadn’t had to be around a man at the hospital except for that policeman and Matthew, so to have a man in her room was uncomfortable. She wondered if they noticed. She was kind of fidgeting a little on the bed and was trying not to look at the man too much but she did glance at Helen cautiously.
She was silent and they were silent too – no one was speaking. Finally Hazel broke the silence in a tiny voice she wondered if anyone would even hear. “H-Hi.” She looked up at Meredith, needing to see a familiar face.
Meredith knew that James and Helen were prepared to take things slow. They had had many conversations with the right people on how to make sure that Hazel stayed comfortable. Meredith really was only herein case things went south. She didn’t think they would — Hazel needed this, wanted it…and she suspected the little girl was coming to realize it.
She gave Hazel a smile but didn’t move any closer to the bed. She wasn’t going to take over the situation or allow Hazel to reply to heavily on her. She knew that Hazel might be tempted to crawl back into her shell. She glanced over her shoulder to James and Helen, who hadn’t come through the door yet.
They were still smiling.
"Hello," Helen stated and Meredith could tell the woman was fighting not to say more. James placed a hand on her shoulder and echoed his wife’s greeting.
"Do you mind if we come in?" He asked quietly.
"Hope you're not getting into too much trouble, little cousin."
"None that I can't talk my way out of, Mere."

Therefore I shall be all over the place.
Today was a fun day because I:
- gave my babies new themes which I adore
did the thing that I shouldn’t do
- Did some replies. Woot!
- Had a Fellgasm (and gained a cousin)
- Is in the beginnings of planning some Book!Mere stuff (blaming it on Sar)
- Shoved my hand down Ric’s pants (wait, that was Meredith)
But it’s 2:30 and my wrist hurts so bad. OMG I am old.
Therefore I will pass out.
