Overview

THIS IS A STORY ABOUT MARY.

Mary was a fan of the vampire drama "City By Night", until she woke up in the show. At first, Mary is thrilled - who wouldn't want to live alongside their favorite TV characters? The charm fades when Mary realizes that the extras still don't speak, the matte paintings don't become real, and all the infuriating flaws in the writing are just amplified when you have to try to interact with the shallow characters.

And then, of course, the lead character Richmond DuNoir falls for her! But his admiration comes with its own set of problems: Antonio, Richmond's psychotic stalker, has a habit of killing off the girls-of-the-week. To stay alive, Mary has to find a way home from a world that, pardon the pun, totally sucks.

A loving satire of vampire-detective tropes, fandom, and Mary Sues from award-winning author J.M. Frey.
