Kill A Demon Today, Face the Devil Tomorrow[1] is the first episode in Tyler Gracyne’s fanfiction series House of M and the first overall, beginning after the events taken place in the final act which is almost exactly like From A Cradle To A Grave with the exception that the Harvest Girls survived (all of them), Sean O’Connell is alive and (thanks to Davina) free of the hex but unfortunately comatose, and Esther is still dead, Camille’s recurring psychic dreams as well as Rebekah being absent.

This episode is told primarily in Rebekah Mikaelson (a crossover character from Something Witchy Comes This Way, House of M’s parent show)’s POV and the series as a whole acts as a flashforwards from the events of SWCTW’s current airing story/timeline.

This episode is followed by Some Things Are Meant to Stay Buried.

PlotEdit

REBEKAH ARRIVES IN THE FRENCH QUARTER — After receiving a letter from “EM”, Rebekah is persuaded by Matt to meet him in New Orleans after over a year in radio silence with her siblings, but Rebekah has a daunting decision to make about her status as the fourth most powerful being in existence that she dreads including Elijah and Klaus in. Upon arriving much earlier than she was instructed to, Rebekah decides to look around town only to meet with her brothers much earlier than expected. Surprise, surprise, Niklaus has a child: Hope Andréa Zoë Mikaelson, Princess of the French Quarter and a tribrid witch-vampire-werewolf (a Werewitchpyre).

PremiseEdit

TranscriptEdit

Dear Diary, Rebekah wrote in her diary, it had been a while, two months and a half now, since she’d wrote in her journal. After the Incursion, well, it was hard to open up to anyone but Matt. She was still heartbroken over it, just thinking about it made her eyes water because she felt like somehow, it had been her fault, her friend had DIED in it because she was in the way, because she was trying to protect Rebekah. I am in a limousine heading to New Orleans. Why there? Well, almost three months ago, my life was literally hanging by the thread of a Crystal, but my friend saved me, and she paid a high price for it. The guilt of it all kept me from eating, from drinking, if Matt had not been with me, I know I would have probably gone insane. I nearly died, ME, an Original Vampire, brushed shoulders with the Grim Reaper – I WOULD’VE died if it weren’t for her, she who gave her life for mine and more. The fear of death is a feeling I hardly ever have, the fear of death is non-existent when you’re truly immortal. But the thing is, I liked the fear. Is that scary? Matt doesn’t think so, he thinks it’s more proof of my humanity, my right to BE human. For centuries, I have loathed the being I am, a demon, built to take life, cursed by her mother to forever live as an abomination. I have hated humanity and killed and oppressed many because of my jealousy of their ability to be pure, free of evil, of eternity. In that time I have lived, hated, murdered, stolen, given, been robbed, been liberated, daggered, daggered and daggered again, and most of all, I have loved. But in my time in Mystic Falls, the friends I’ve made, the friend I lost, the fight against Silas have all given me a choice I never had for myself: a metered life or eternity. I can have one or the other.

After everything I’ve encountered, experienced, and suffered, I know something I never have:

FREEDOM

After so much time robbed of love, I was finally free from my brothers Elijah and Niklaus, even my father, the most powerful vampire elder in existence, is gone, and my mother Esther returned, asked me to forgive her, told me she loved me, possessed me and then died all over again. My brothers, Finn and Kol, both taken from me by the people I’ve grown to love and understand.

The choice should’ve been simple, Matt is my soulmate, I know that now. And I would have taken the Cure . . . if only Elijah and Niklaus were dead, too. But they aren’t, and as much as I want to ignore it, I can’t. Niklaus, I don’t give a damn what he thinks of my choices. But . . . Elijah, he’s loved and taken care of me for centuries and has only asked me to love Niklaus. Leaving him for a limited, mortal life . . . I can’t do that, not without telling him at least, face-to-face.

Thing is, I know they won’t accept it, the last time I considered taking the Cure, he was very hesitant to live with my decision. I was robbed by Silas of that chance and Elijah’s victory didn’t last long, he followed Niklaus out of Mystic Falls and left me for him once again.

As though Fate would stand against my whim to wait it out, Elijah sent to me yesterday to tell me to meet him and Niklaus at the place we called home for centuries – New Orleans. I would have refused, but he wouldn’t have asked me without a hook: Niklaus has a child.

The note read:

My dearest Rebekah, I send this letter to you with high hopes that my news will touch your heart as much as it has mine. These last couple of months have been hard without the rest of the family, which has almost always been at my grasp, my eye-shot and my guardianship in life and in death, but over the course of my time watching over Niklaus, I have found that change is but Nature’s will and Nature’s will will always prevail. You live and so do your two brothers and with our lives, a new one was created in your time away. Niklaus has a child, a daughter in fact, and we would love for you to come to the place you have called home for centuries, the second place that was ever truly your home – the Plantation that stands to this day. If you come, and I plead you do, come to the place that was a sanctuary for our family in the 18th century. I send this letter with love.

— EM

Rebekah looked up from her book to study the road ahead, she was nearing the town now. She could feel the energy as she neared, the Leigh Lines that drew all supernaturals to places were especially strong in places like New Orleans and Virginia, where they flared the brightest, conjured by the Crystals of Bezel.

A CHILD! NIKLAUS?!

At first, I refused to believe it, simply folded it and placed the note in my bag, angry at the lengths Elijah would go to get me and Nik in the same room. Then I THOUGHT about it. Nik’s the HYBRID, half werewolf, therefore half alive, so was it so hard to believe that his extremely healthy, strong body could be potent enough to give him a child?

Of course, the Devil was in the mix, instead of me, my most hated, evil brother has a child, and I remain a barren vampire. If it weren’t for Matt, I would’ve stayed in Mystic Falls and drank the Cure then and there just to spite my bloody brother. But here I am, going to New Orleans to hear what they have to say . . . and see the miracle baby myself. Am I ready? No, but there is better time than the present.

As the car drove into the city boarder, Rebekah reached into her pocket and pulled out a tiny box in which the key to her happiness, or her doom resided.

She remembered Matt’s words, “When you’re ready, not a second before.”

Rebekah clutched the Cure capsule to her heart, knowing she wasn’t in for an easy ride.

1.0.1. INT. THE COMPOUND — HOPE MIKAELSON’S BEDROOM. AFTERNOON.Edit

— PRESENT DAY —

Niklaus watches his daughter sleep. He smiled at her, feeling the love of being a father more powerfully than ever. How his own father could hate him so badly, Klaus had no idea. He knew that he would do anything, kill anyone, to protect Hope from the wrath of Esther, who hated him with all her being. She showed her true colors when she came after his daughter, she —

They had done this ten times over the past two months, Davina was getting tired of calling on the Ancestors without answers, but when Monique was their leader, well, she couldn’t do much about it, besides, things between her and Davina had been going well, she wasn’t about to let the Ancestors be the cause of their rift, besides, when they weren’t trying to contact their angry ancestors, Davina was learning a new spell and teaching it to the other girls, without Geneviève’s guidance, Esther’s Grimoire’s guidance would have to do. Not to mention she was babysitting the Original Vampire Mikael, the father of the Original Vampires she was out to destroy, or at least, the father of one Mikaelson she wanted to destroy while she also volunteered at the O’Connell House on the weekends to look after a comatose Sean O’Connell since she felt guilty because she was responsible for breaking the hex, which may have just broken his mind further, plus she was also going to school again with Monique and the others. And, insanely, she was thriving at all of it. She was acing at school, she was growing stronger as a Harvest Witch of Fire and the House of M was suffering from the hands of the Werewolf Factions all without her toil. She was actually living a functional life . . . now if only these Ancestors would get lost then she’d be set.

They stood in a circle around an altar on which stood four elements: a plain round stone, a wine glass full of pure, fresh water, a polished white stone with the symbol for air and finally a black scented candle, all their symbols of power for them to channel to connect them to their ancestors.

Davina knew it wouldn’t work, but she had time, so she —

Vincent Griffith walked into the room. He was a powerful elder warlock veteran who’d been murdered by his sociopathic wife, Eva Sinclair, every New Orleans witch/warlock-kid’s worst fear.

Vincent had told the girls they weren’t worthy of his guidance for failing to kill Hope Mikaelson to prevent a thousand years’ worth of Harvest Rituals, which Davina hadn’t known until after Monique, Abby and Cassie died and came back to life. She would never hurt Hope, sure she hated and would do anything to kill Klaus, but she wasn’t a monster. Anyway, three months ago, Vincent had awoken from his slumber, given rebirth by the Ancestors anew for all the good he’d done to replace the Shunned Geneviève. He’d told them they were on probation for “failing to execute the will of the Ancestors”, they couldn’t learn anymore from the Ancestors, all but Davina who’d not been present at the time of the New Harvest. Personally, Davina didn’t like Vincent, he had a snobby attitude and too be frank, he was shady, he hung around the cemetery way too much and seemed to talk with the Ancestors much longer than they would usually allow any witch.

She didn’t trust him and would be damned if she were in the other girls’ shoes, having him determining her use of magic.

DAVINA CLAIRE
The original . . . (CONFUSED) What do you mean by Original Witch?
Conversation Tail

Davina knew the Original Witch as the very old, older than Klaus and Elijah, Esther, their mother who was now in the Ancestral Plane. It gave her chills remembering how she’d so easily taken control of Limbo while Davina was there, she was not a witch, she was something entirely different and powerful, centuries of life in different Veils and Planes of Existence had given such a tactic mind that her eyes seemed to analyse every possible outcome of her plans before you could even start to decipher her, and from her spells, Davina knew it was true, she’d seen her work, she saw it every day, they were the work of an artist, Davina would know, she was one.

Now, looking into Vincent’s eyes and listening to him say what he’d just said, she saw the same look in his eyes, but with less tact, more like smugness that he could not be beat rather than a method of perfection like Esther. But she’d seen this before, a shade of cruelty in his eyes that suggested he’d seen things that had failed to break him but had come close . . . this was not Vincent Griffith, he was possessed.

1.0.3. INT. THE COMPOUND — DINING PAVILION. AFTERNOON.Edit

Rebekah and her brothers sat by the patio next to each other, drinking tea and having what Elijah called, Andréa’s Peanut Butter Heavenly Chocolate Chip Cookies which she just MUST try. When she did, Rebekah had been grateful she was an ever-unchanging vampire who could eat to her desires without worrying about fat reserves because she couldn’t have enough.

Elijah and Klaus were explaining everything about their time in NOLA and Rebekah was actually glad to have this time with them.

Her decision to maybe give up on immortality had not yet come into play, but so far, she had found out that her brothers had been . . . well, her brothers. She was enchanted by the idea of Davina Claire, a witch who possessed the power to expel Elijah to Limbo and back, but dreaded her next question about the teenage goddess.

Yes, and had I known just how much trouble that would entail I wouldn’t have allowed the completion of that bloody Harvest. Actually, I killed the little pest and she came back to life at the mercy of your beloved Marcel. (HE DIDN’T WAIT FOR HER TO REACT AGAIN TO MARCEL’S NAME BEING MENTIONED) But Sophie Deveraux, God bless her wretched soul, came up with a fantastic plan to complete the Harvest. She would absorb the power of Céleste Marie Helene Dubois’s power for herself
Conversation Tail

Rebekah looked at Elijah, she was familiar with the process of Consecration, Céleste Dubois had been Elijah’s lover, a very lovely Cote D’Ivoire immigrant of the New Orleans witches who’d shown up just in time to fill Elijah’s heart. Rebekah suspected the witches back then had only allowed the witch to join them because of the powerful power she would come into in her studies. Céleste had been a marvel, beautiful and kind, and perfect for Elijah . . . aside for the fact that she’d been mortal . . .

Rebekah shoved the thought of immortality and mortality far away, this wasn’t the time for that.

Beautiful Claire Holt-Rebekah Mikaelson Green
REBEKAH
How did you manage? (SHE RATHER SAID) I thought you said there were no Elders with which to complete the Harvest. (REBEKAH WAS ALSO FAMILIAR WITH THE HARVEST, ALTHOUGH IT HAD BEEN CALLED Fête du Moisson et Moissonner).
Conversation Tail
Elijah Mikaelson (Earth-20520)
ELIJAH
Well (ELIJAH SIPPED HIS TEA), I would never have agreed to this had the circumstances been different, but as you well know Rebekah, if the Harvest Ritual had not been completed, the city would be submerged in the full power of those limitless-potential-wielding girls.
Conversation Tail

Yes, she did know. The last time a coven had been led by Harvest Witches, they had managed to submerge NOLA in the oceans, which had devastated all the species.

Back then, the vampires (Rebekah, Klaus and Elijah) had used this as a chance to seize their full control over the city, the werewolves had been scattered and half-extinct, the witches were too, had suffered their own powers and were too busy rebuilding to have time fighting the Originals.

It hadn’t lasted.

Eventually, a powerful witch named Lily LeRoux had gotten her hands on a spellbook belonging to the witch Esther, the Originals’ mother and . . . well, things were never the same.

Elijah would agree, he thinks he can reach out to her and convince her otherwise. If she were alive, my solution would be to put her in the ground again, but she’s outsmarted us this time, she remains a spirit and cannot be harmed. It’s only a matter of time before she sends more of her tiresome witches after us, it doesn’t matter how many we kill because she will continue to imbue them with power. We barely saved Hope from three Harvest Witches. But . . . he and Hayley agree, we cannot do anything else, maybe her only daughter’s presence will sooth her anger. At least, that’s what I would assume they hope.

(CONSIDERS/CLEARED HIS THROAT AWKWARDLY): Well, Niklaus was the one to end her life the first time, I believe her anger is to do with that, in her own twisted manner, she believes taking Hope’s life will be enough vengeance. (TO REBEKAH) But now you are here as well and the two of us can make her see that there’s but one hope, and that is to reunite, as a family: she can rule the Ancestors and the witches, while we rule the physical world, we can coexist and they – the werewolves and the witches – will yield if we present a united front —
Conversation Tail
Beautiful Claire Holt-Rebekah Mikaelson Green
REBEKAH
You must be entirely demented, Elijah. Mother will not have any other way but her own. She has kept a grudge for a millennia, just like Mikael, and thanks to Niklaus’s inherited evil, his own daughter’s inherited all of his enemies. But . . . Mother would not be one of them. It’s been three months, right? If mother truly wanted to be the bane of Nik’s daughter then she would have attacked again.
Conversation Tail

Now THAT was a game changer. Rebekah thought about Matt. The last time Esther had returned . . . she had not been in hesitation to kill her family to undo her greatest sin: creating immortality. If Esther really DID have the Stake, she may never see Matt again.

1.0.4. INT. CAMILLE’S APARTMENT — THE BEDROOM. AFTERNOON.Edit

Camille sat on her bed, frantically studying one of the many diaries of her past ancestors who had been protectors of New Orleans. Aside from that, Camille had inherited an arsenal of dark objects – talisman that witches imbued with certain powers and abilities. Camille was learning the origins and ability of every one, but she had not even studied a quarter of them and she already knew what 15 dark objects could do.

Currently, she was reading Alejandra O’Connell’s chronicle or “journal”. It had terrifying information about the Originals in the 18th century. How she had fallen in love with and attempted to kill Elijah Mikaelson with a special powder she’d learned the witches called “vinaya”, now extinct, but back then, it had the power to control any person, kind of like compulsion.

Camille closed the book when she read the words: Dear Diary, I think I love Elijah Mikaelson. I mean, the way he treats me, the way he kisses me, the way he TOUCHES me and knows what to do when we —

It was too much, but it was all she could do to keep herself sane . . . either than visit her comatose brother in the hospital, sleep with Marcel, tell Davina it wasn’t her fault her brother was in the condition that he is, and have weird nightmares.

Not to mention that Klaus, Elijah and Hayley wouldn’t let her in to their compound and whenever she tried going, Marcel’s guys would be at the entrance, saying that no one outside the “House of M” could enter the house. It was ridiculous. But when she asked Marcel about it, he refused to say anything to her.

So Camille decided to distract herself with everything else.

She walked out of her apartment and entered her car. She was headed to the hospital to see Sean. It comforted her to be next to him, to read to him the latest news, the family history, the town’s vampires, her hurts, her wishes and angers because he was all Camille really had left, and she would hold on to him, and stay strong for him, till the end.

Secretly, Camille needed him to awaken so she could have someone to talk to about the dark objects she’d inherited . . . someone either than Davina. She’d talked to Davina about it a couple months ago, the witch had needed the objects to generate enough power to channel something called the “Threefold Enchantment” while channeling the birthday of Hope Mikaelson. One part of the spell had broken Agnes’s hex on Sean, the second part had protected the Harvest Girls that had tried to kill Hope and that was the only reason they were still alive. Davina had intended the last part to resurrect the love of her life, Tim Heisenberg, but she claimed the spell had failed. Cami admired her strength because though she’d failed, Davina seemed to be taking it very well.

Aside from supernatural business, she would officially become a therapist, acing her class at last. Cami was excited about it and her excitement excited her even more because she was glad that even after all she’d lived through, she was still capable of living the aspect of a normal, human life helping normal people with their normal problems.

Cami pulled up in the parking lot of the hospital and jumped out of her car. In that moment, she felt a chill in her bones, so dark and evil that she gasped. It was like the day she’d met the Originals, Elijah and Klaus. They’d carried an aura of strong magic, kinda like how when you stepped into the City of the Dead, you felt the strength of the Leigh Lines.

Rebekah, Klaus, Kol, Finn and Elijah stand in the rain overseeing Mikael and Esther at a traditional Viking funeral.

Even on a day like this, Esther’s beauty was envied by her only daughter Rebekah. Esther and Kol muttered protection charms over the body of Henrik. They’d started with their charms since before the ritual, it was supposedly meant to ensure safe passage to the Afterlife, as according to Kol and Esther.

Mikael had seemed softer on the day, in genuine pain. Rebekah and all his children, including Niklaus, had hugged him and Esther, comforting them of their pain.

Conversation Tail

Rebekah remembered the sheer look of hurt in Kendrik’s eyes before he turned and fled into the woods.

Lucious had bowed graciously and apologized one more time before meeting Rebekah’s eye, giving her a silent message: don’t worry about it, love. We’ll talk later.

The funeral had commenced.

Once the traditional Viking Rite of Death was complete and Henrik’s gory remains were ignited into flames by Esther’s magic, everyone couldn’t bear to watch, so they’d left.

Only Kol and Esther had remained behind, too heartbroken to leave even the ashes of Henrik’s body.

It was a week after their turning, Klaus had been turned into an Original Vampire. He was indulging in a drink of blood, enjoying the death of his victim a little too much. The fangs of vampires were among the most sensitive parts of a vampire. When drinking from a victim, the feel of them entering the flesh was a feeling better than sex and the frenzy and sensual pleasures that followed hidden within human blood was indescribably, intimately, deliciously orgasmic, and a willing victim felt the pleasures a bite from a vampire could give.

If Mother had the stake, she damn well would have used it by now, her “devotion to Nature” would demand it. Trust me, I’d be a pile of ash. For the past three months, the werewolves have been gathering my power. Every full moon, the witches have been absorbing my power as a hybrid, the 12 moonlight rings have been accumulating strength, power they have not used. According to Diego, the werewolves are back in town, which means they plan on using the Stake tonight. Which is why, my dear Marcel, I would let Rebekah and Elijah and the mother of my one and only child attempt to beg our mother to spare her, because Elijah will not let Hayley die and he and Rebekah, will be safe from the werewolves who come to kill me tonight.

Leigh lines are mystical cracks in the earth that emit magical energy into the spiritual world. It attracts magical creatures, ensures the magical flow continues. They’re primal, but they can form anywhere depending on how much magic has been used there.
Conversation Tail
Geneviève KADTFTDT
GENEVIÈVE
Like here, in the Nécropolis. The witches have been buried here since the times of the Aztecs, years of magic practice are drafted and recorded into the earth, the drafts are turned into leigh lines, cracks in the spirit of Mother Nature that draw even more magic and strengthen over time and connect witches all over the world. Witches can store their magic in them, the Ancestors have done so here. Or they can send messages to each other or even draw on raw leigh lines for power. Think of it as kind of the Internet of supernatural beings, the veins of Magic’s very existence.
Conversation Tail

Rebekah knew the leigh lines all too well, it was partly why she had the Cure and partly why Silas was still alive.

1.1.6. EXT. THE STREETS OF NEW ORLEANS. NIGHT.Edit

Tina walks alone in the streets seemingly headed to the compound when she sees a man looking at her from across the street. His eyes are glowing golden and she rushes into the compound, realizing he is a werewolf.

CUT TO:

1.1.7. INT. THE COMPOUND — COURTYARD. NIGHT.Edit

As Tina enters the compound she sees that every vampire has already assembled and Klaus is making an announcement from his balcony.

Niklaus-TSAR
KLAUS
Vampires, this Quarter has belonged to you for the past century and yet the werewolves’ presence is strong enough to make you tremble in your own city for the past three months! I say NO MORE! Some of you are over a century old, some are but tweens, I am older than all you and yet we all share something in common: we all love New Orleans and we share the same blood. You see, when my mother created Immortality, she realized we would be alone our entire lives. So she gave us the ability to create others like ourselves, sirelings of our choosing who would be companions and possess the same immortality. And if we so chose, we could take it back for each non-Original vampire dies by any wood. All of you were turned by Marcellus and are therefore part of my bloodline. I BUILT New Orleans! I molded it’s foundations with my siblings. Sadly, for all of you, Mother’s spell also bound the lives of every member of our bloodlines to us, therefore if I were to (GRINS) die tonight, a domino-effect of magic would be produced, dragging all my sirelings into death with me.
Conversation Tail

An outcry of worry rippled across the vampires that stood everywhere in the room. Some were unsure of this, others thought Klaus was lying. Looking up, Tina could see that Klaus was smirking at them, unworried and wondered why he was telling them this.

Niklaus-TSAR
KLAUS
Quiet! (SMILING) Now, some time ago my brothers, the Original Vampires Kol and Finn, were killed. Yes, we Originals can be killed. When they died, as you know, entire lines of vampires from their bloodlines died with them, extincting their sirelines. As you know, the conventional wood cannot kill us, but there is a wood that can: the White Oak. (RAISES A FINGER) It is extinct, save for one Stake which my mother Esther made immortal with her matchless magic. That stake has fallen into enemy lines. Marcel and I believe it to be in werewolf hands, and the moon is rising: tonight is a full moon and they plan to attack us. Their leaders possess the Moonlight Rings which drain me of all my powers when the moon reaches its apex. If Francesca does indeed have the Stake, she can kill even me with it and when I fall, you will all fall with me.
Conversation Tail

Oh my God, Tina thought anxiously. Warm fingers intertwined with hers: Josh was standing next her, he gave her a look that suggested he was just as frightened as her.

Niklaus-TSAR
KLAUS
That’s where all you come in. A legion of werewolves will be here to destroy me by night’s end. You are to protect me to protect yourselves. Marcel has already agreed. (LOOKS BACK AT MARCEL)

MARCEL
(WALKS UP NEXT TO KLAUS): Klaus’s right. Y’all know I wouldn’t lie to you. I’m not compelled either. But right now you’re our best bet. You’re immortal and you’re strong. Tonight we have to protect Klaus to save ourselves. Fight like you’ve got nothing to lose because if you DO lose, you lose it all. You lose your home, and your LIVES! Fight to live, fight for forever! And when it’s all over, Klaus’s promised to heal any vampire that the werewolves bite. If you’re not up for it, by all means, walk out that door. But if you trust me, do as I ask and fight for the House of M!
Conversation Tail

Tina inhaled deeply, knowing she had already accepted and watched as all the vampires took a step forward with her, accepting to fight for their home just as the moonlight shone at near apex.

Klaus grinned closed his eyes. Tina could feel the Original’s ancient powers flooding the room as an image drilled itself into her mind: a silver-bound, beautiful White Oak stake – the White Oak Stake, Klaus was showing it to all the vampires with a message: if you see it, bring it to me. And then a private message for Tina alone: come to Hope’s room.

Once all other vampires had gone to take their positions, expecting the werewolves, Tina headed off to the room Klaus had instructed her to go to and found Josh, Marcel and Klaus standing in it.

I can’t say I’d necessarily trust them myself, but they refused to participate in the war between me and your family three months ago when I propositioned them, so I’d say you can trust them.

No I don’t think too much. I mean THINK about it. Werewitchpyre in the house. If she’s a vampire too, then what MAKES her a vampire? Does she just have an endless supply of the stuff in her blood, and if so, if she ages until 18 and I kill her – which I can NEVER do now – would that turn her into vampire? And if it does turn her, does she still get to be a witch-werewolf?

(EYES THE SLEEPING BABY): Sorry — so he was born from a werewolf and witch bloodline. Esther and whoever her lover was. Klaus was born a hybrid – a werewitch, or in his case, a werelock. Then they were turned into vampires, and when he had his first kill — BAM! — his werewolf curse turned him into a vampire-werewolf.

What’s your point?

JOSH
(SIGHS): My point is this: If Klaus was able to break his curse and stay a werewolf, how about his warlock-ness? If he can be a werewolf and a vampire in the same breath – especially since he’s a pureblood werewitch to begin – then why can’t he be a warlock too?

What if Esther always feared not just him being a hybrid, but a tribrid, like his daughter? He’s only managed to break the curse in the 21st century thinking he’d be just a werewolf-vampire hybrid, that’s why he doesn’t even realize . . . you’re looking pale, Tina, you okay?

1.2.2. INT. THE COMPOUND — COURTYARD. NIGHT.Edit

It was war, bodies lay limply across the cauldron, casualties equal on both sides – for now. The werewolves were growing stronger, and were killing and learning more than they were dying while the vampires were running out of heads.

Marcel shoved a werewolf off a young vampire girl and broke the beast’s ribcage, throwing it into another. He saw Oliver rip out a vampire’s out and throw it away and bite three others in the same breath. Oliver was a Lycan . . . there was no other explanation.

He pulled Oliver off one of his guys and thrust his head into a wall, but that didn’t last, Oliver pulled his head out like it was made out of steel and bared his four, canine fangs, sharp and long and his nails elongated into sharp claws and his muscle and bone mass stretched. Oliver was suddenly taller than Marcel and venomously strong. He lunged at Marcel, his teeth nearly catching him, but Marcel repelled his attack and caught his wrists before he could tear out his throat with his new claws. Oliver was starting to look like whatever would be between a human and a wolf, hairy and monstrous. Marcel punched him across the face and caught his backlashing fist but made the mistake of not ripping his heart out then and there: Oliver shoved his hand into Marcel’s chest.

Marcel and Oliver had fought head-to-head. Marcel was a powerful vampire, he’d lived for three hundred years and yet, Oliver’s power was as strong as Klaus.
