Owl // Count Cain

Fic- Count Cain

I meant to write this for rikoren's birthday, which was yesterday-- although she's not really on LJ much anymore anyway. But since she was the person that got me into this fandom and I know that she's also a big Jezebel fan too....

Title: Definitions
Fandom: Count Cain
Characters: Jezebel, Alexis, random prostitute No, it isn't Jezebel/random prostitute.
Genre: Angst
Rating: Somewhere between PG and PG-13? The hell with it-- if you're not disturbed by this series in general, then you shouldn't be disturbed by this.
Wordcount: 3115
Warnings: Generally disturbing themes, including disturbing religious themes; this is set during Mark of the Red Ram, but there are implied spoilers for the end of the series.
Summary: A name can have a great deal of meaning. Jezebel knows that. But Alexis may be the only one who knows what Jezebel truly means.
Disclaimer: I am not Kaori Yuki, and therefore don't own.
A/N: This fic really only works if you assume that the proper spelling is Jezebel, not Jizabel. Just a heads-up.

- As far as I'm aware, Jezebel's mother has no name in canon. But I wanted to give her one for this, and Margaret seemed appropriate.
- Jezebel actually talks to Alexis twice during this arc, and I meant for this conversation to take place sometime between those two.
- The first version of this fic was massively shorter, so I felt like experimenting with style. I'm not sure how well second-person POV and present tense work on something longer. Thoughts?
