Integra orders Seras to drink her blood; Walter catches Pip watching; two baobhan sith make a trip to London; a stray catboy turns up in a box; and all of this converges on Integra’s birthday.
Somewhere in Scotland: They dance, all in green, the beautiful but deadly White Women of the Scottish Highlands. They are the baobhan sith, who lure men to their doom… “Laura”: Um…sisters? I think we need to find a new strategy.
Baobhan sith 1: We haven’t had a good victim in years. Men don’t notice us any more. What can we do? Baobhan sith 2: Our outfits are old-fashioned. Let’s try something more revealing. Baobhan sith 1: That’s hot! “Laura”: One problem… If we run around wearing that in the middle of a forest, we’ll never… Continue reading Birthday Bash 2/85
Baobhan sith 3: Do you have a better idea, sister? Laura: Yes, I do. Let’s leave this forest and go find people, instead of waiting for them to find us. Nobody sees us from their cars. We need to find them where they live and work and shop. Doesn’t just need to be men, either.… Continue reading Birthday Bash 3/85
[sigh] The baobhan sith soon to be known as Marian: Sister! Wait! Laura: What is it? Marian! You’re leaving all by yourself, aren’t you? Take me with you! Laura: You’re willing to face the dangers outside our forest? Marian: Uh-huh. Plus, men are icky. I wanna meet some hot chicks!
She’s drinking flowers-of-Perun tea. The Hellsing mansion [sip] [EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE] [ZAP] Integra (thinking): Fangirl portal: closed. Before it even had the chance to fully open. We won’t be having any fangirl trouble this year. She looks so happy, I don’t have the heart to tell her she’s wrong…
Laura: You want to “meet hot chicks”? Fair enough. So do I. What is your name, little sister? Marian: Marian Amethyst Raven Yumi Sappho Urania Elizabeth. It’s the name I chose when I became one of the baobhan sith. Like it? Laura: Tell you what. Why don’t I just call you Marian, and you can… Continue reading Birthday Bash 6/85
Marian: Where are we going first, Laura? Laura: Well, little sister, I have one idea… You’ve heard the rumors out of England, about the female knight…who kills or captures every vampire she meets? Marian: Wow! Is that really what she looks like? Laura: Er…so I imagine, anyway.
Laura: We have all heard about this knight, but none of us have met her. I intend to go to England and see her for myself. Marian: But there’s a reason we haven’t gone looking for her! What if we’re killed? Laura: Marian, we died long ago. It would be such a waste to be… Continue reading Birthday Bash 8/85
The last panel begins a scene adapted from Hellsing volume 4, chapter 8. The original scene takes place shortly before the all-out attack on England; this one will lead into a more subtle series of events. Marian: All right! Let’s go to England! I wonder if I”ll meet any younger vampires outside of the forest?… Continue reading Birthday Bash 9/85
[CHOMP] [BLEAHHH] Seras (thinking): I never thought the day would come when salad could make me nauseated…
