Synopsis/Details: 

PILOT: Thirteen year old Sylvia meets her perfect older sister Julia's new boyfriend Terry during a wardrobe malfunction; over dinner, Sylvia suspects there's something dark and maybe sinister in Terry's nature.

Series mini-bible available.

Series Synopsis: Sylvia is going into eighth grade when she meets her older sister Julia's new handsome boyfriend, Terry. Too good to be true, Sylvia looks closer at this handsome man and sees "vampire". She snoops some more.

Sylvia studies Valtieri "Terry" Dakmarr, who has kept a low profile and just wants to belong to normal society. He comes from a family with a long business history of making vampire blending in happen.

Beginning eighth grade, Sylvia has the usual self-doubts of a girl her age, especially one in the limelight of a perfect older sister. She also lives in the peripheral vision of a mom who knows she's there somewhere (kind of a hands-off approach to parenting), but has her own life to live.

Sylvia and her best friend Holly sneak around Terry's apartment, being where they shouldn't be, learning things about him he's kept hidden for centuries. This comes to an end when Sylvia, alone and snooping, comes face to fang in Terry's apartment. Terry discovers her, confronts her realizations, and dismisses them as her imagination.

Knowing the truth to what she's seen firsthand, Sylvia is dumbfounded. The truth comes out between Sylvia, Julia, and Terry. The story concludes with acceptance, and Sylvia realizing she's not as plain as she feels to the right boy.

No bloodlust, no biting. Focus is on Sylvia's coming to terms with herself.
