Widow Maker - The city lay shrouded in the distance, looming like a fragile virgin clothed in white. The year was 2785.  Vincent’s keen eyesight cut through the fog, singeing over the towering steel buildings like a guided laser.  He was searching for something lost, something that he would probably never reclaim.  continue

The Haunted House - "Over here, I tell you!  The coffin is over here!"  Mona rolled her eyes up at Frank. Idiot. He was acting if he'd found the secret entrance in the wall rather than her. She had a good mind to turn back and let Frank stand his chances of being sacrificed by the coven of she-male vampires that inhabited the dungeon of the castle. . . . continue

The Crying Veil - Anna's eyes widened in terror as the wedding veil she had situated on her head was suddenly covered with blood - drops of blood.  She detected crying, pitiful crying as if someone in her head were in agony.... continue

Vampire Short Story -  The Rat Within

Written by Sky Taylor, Sky at Dawn

The flame of the candle flickered through the darkened hole of a window, the only evidence that the tiny cottage was occupied.  Mammoth-sized rats had slowly eaten their way through the thatched roof, allowing the elements of nature to steal inside.


One of the braver rats had made himself at home by soaking up the warmth of the candle, his silhouette outlined as one watched in the distance, a shadow of mystery, of darkness.

Greta listlessly ambled towards the candle, acutely aware of the rat's presence, though not of the one that watched from afar.  As she approached the rat, he did not move, he did not cringe, he did not twitch for he was accustomed to the young woman's presence.

Nor did Greta fear the large, sparsely haired vermin, rather found him a comforting companion.  It was lonely, locked in the cottage with no one about.  Yet, she was safe here in this wooded haven of lost souls, which she had claimed as her home ten years gone by.

Due to a cruel and untimely act, she had found Mankind in her disfavor, fleeing the city to clasp this solitary life.  She had vowed never return to civilization, where people walked the streets ruler-straight, their hearts containing gluttony for personal objects, wealth, and gain - their gain.  

Humankind no longer existed, probably never had.  Through her youth, she had envisioned what she had wanted to see in the people surrounding her, not what was really there.  But, she could see it now.  Monsters, all perfectly concealed monsters with tongues that were most times sharper than a razor's edge.

Yes, she could see so much now.  Perhaps her solitude had rendered her sensitivity to a state of lofty awareness, being separated from society providing her with unique insight to the world around her.

Greta collected her brush that lay beside the candle, where the large rat sat juxtapose.  Coming within inches of his gnarled teeth, he did not move, he did not cringe, he did not twitch.

The Vampire & The Cowboy - He had ridden so far, so long, that Jack's thighs still smelled of smoked leather from the saddle that sat astride his twenty-year old mare, Ladonya.  And the horse wasn't happy about the extended ride.  She had been blowing through her nostrils at him for the last ten minutes, the last gust a gnat's ass from Jack's ear.  continue

The Ethnic Vampire Wars -A thick layer of fog lay captive in the valley below the castle.  It was the Ethnic Vampire Wars.  continue

Fashion Statement - Vampires - Vincent revolved his dark head slightly, moving his eyes mysteriously over the crowd.  They loved him, without a doubt.  His popularity was certainly nothing to scoff about.  But would they love him still, if they knew that he was a vampire?  continue

Pretty In Pick - “Right here – pile it on right cheer,” the hick told Qieu, pointing his half-full fork of spaghetti to his plate.   continue

Goat's Pine al la Mode - Goat lived in a valley that was sparsely clothed with pines, red cedars, and sumac that turned a vivid red each autumn.  As so was the season, for autumn had settled in for a brief visit that soon would welcome winter.   continue

Sweet Tooth, Sweet Fangs - Quinn studied the box of chocolates, finding them irresistible.  continue

 Vampire Online - Jewel entered the chatroom, settling in for a relaxing night of frivolous chatter.  The chats were always entertaining, and a pretty brainless way to chill out for the evening. continue

 Oh, My Aching Fang! - “Ouch!  Don’t touch it!  Get away from me, you old sawbones!”  

“Quit being such a baby,” Monique hissed, her beautiful pale face mere inches from Sandar's.  “Well, it’s settled, dear.  You’re going to need a dentist.” continue

Vampire For Hire - It wasn’t easy, obtaining a decent night job.  In the first place, not many businesses were willing to do interviews for the night slots during the late evening hours, after the sun went down.  Being a vampire, that was the only time when Jase could face the world – during the dark of night, that is.  continue

 The Vampire Bat, el Desmodus rotundas - Blood sucking demon? Flying devil? Parasite from hell? Could these cruel descriptions be related to our little winged friend, the Vampire Bat? Yes, I'm afraid so. However, the myths and legends that portray these winged lovelies are highly exaggerated.  continue


 Transformation of a Vampire - You see him in the black night, at first an ominous silhouette cloaked by the sheen of a silver moon high overhead.  The unique power of transformation is one of the most alluring talents of a Vampire…

 The shadow abruptly transforms from what appeared to be a man, into a wolf then vanishes into the night. For a moment, you believe you have imagined this phenomena but your sixth sense tells you that you've just crossed paths with a Vampire. continue

Sky At Dawn sets the focus on vampires - funny, bumbling vampires. However, take note that a few of our tales measure a 4 on the Spooky Scale.  Other than being a bit scary, all are 'wholesome'.  Well, perhaps that's not the correct word to use.  Let's just say that the language and content is 'nice', not naughty.  Just scary.

However, 99% of our content is humor and on that note, please know that we cannot be responsible for those that laugh themselves to death.
