Why This Must Be Read: This is a new fandom for me! I love the idea of this pairing, and what I love even more about this fic is how funny it is, even when it's being serious. Perfectly in character and in tune with the show. The voices rings true.
"What about that strange bloke in Cardiff, the one that had the creepy dolls on his neck?"
Mitchell shakes his head, which causes George to deflate yet again.
"Herrick killed him three months ago." Mitchell flips through the phone book, though he’s stopped looking at the pages for over an hour now. George taps his fingers on his thigh, which occasionally bounces against the floor as he speaks up again.
"There’s a bookstore—I can’t remember the name, but the woman behind the counter had this—look about her— all dark and crone like. Maybe she was a witch—or something."
Mitchell lifts an eyebrow. "You’re preoccupied with witches lately, is there something you’re not telling me?"
"I don’t have—I’m just trying to be helpful, I’m not an expert at these things."
"Neither am I." George jumps when Mitchell slams the book shut and his heart sinks a bit more. "I’m not an expert or a savoir, I’m just—. I can’t even help her without someone telling me what to do."
George’s lips tighten and he stands to his feet, pointing somewhere around the middle Mitchell’s chest.
"You can’t give up."
"I’m not George, I just—"
"I mean it Mitchell, don’t you dare. Annie wouldn’t. If she were here—if she were you, she’d be out in the street asking first person that passed by how to save a bloody vampire—"
"I’m not giving up."
