Summary
An adaptation of Shaftesbury's award-winning, groundbreaking queer vampire web series CARMILLA. Newly escaped from the stifling boredom of growing up in a small town with an overprotective father, college freshman Laura is more than ready for her first great adventure. Sure, some of the campus traditions at Silas University are a little weird, but Laura and her funloving roommate Betty aren't going to let that get in the way of their good time. But when Betty vanishes without a trace, and a sarcastic, nocturnal philosophy student named Carmilla moves into Betty's side of the room before her posters are even down, Laura starts to see the dangerous side of the university's "harmless quirks." In spite of Carmilla's mocking disapproval, Laura begins investigating Betty's disappearance, and what she discovers is stranger at every turn: Betty isn't the first girl to go missing, just the first who hasn't come back. All over campus, girls have been vanishing, and they are completely changed when (or if) they return. Even more disturbing are the strange dreams they recount: smothering darkness, and a strange pale figure haunting their rooms. Dreams that Laura is starting to have herself. As Laura grows more determined to unravel these mysteries, tensions are rising with Carmilla. But is this just a roommate relationship that isn't working out? Or does Carmilla know more than she's letting on about the disappearances? What will Laura do if it turns out her roommate isn't just selfish and insensitive, but completely inhuman? And what will she do if they fall in love?
