MEET THE OC: SYLVIA “SYLVIE” HALFORD

Adam turned around to face the direction of the voice before he looked back at Sylvie. “Nighty-night, jailbird.”

Sylvie didn’t even respond to him directly, instead quietly muttering a “fuck off” as she heard his footsteps leaving. Fucking finally — she could be alone.

But at the same time… she didn’t like being alone.

ABIGAIL OCINFPSHE/HER26 Y/O

CHARACTER FROM: FRAGMENTS OF FEAR

———————————————————————

a tortured soul — that is probably the most accurate way to describe sylvie. it seems that she was doomed from the start — an unwanted child, she was given up by her poor excuses for parents and placed into foster care as a toddler. she spent most of her childhood bouncing from foster home to foster home, each experience being just as miserable as the next. love. that was an unfamiliar word to her.

art, literature, and music became sylvie’s forms of escapism. drawing, writing, and painting were her ways of releasing her thoughts and feelings into the world. her sketchbooks and journals became her only friends. when nobody listened to her, her journals did.

if there was a specific point in time where sylvie’s life really went downhill, it started when she was 12 years old. she was finally adopted. at first, she had hope. everything seemed to be going well — was she finally being given a taste of what it felt like to be loved?

well, that was what she thought. the longer sylvie stayed, the more her adoptive parents began to regret their decision. just like that, she was taunted with the idea of love. when she reached out for it, it was yanked right out of her grasp. sylvie was confused. what had she done? what was wrong with her?

high school — she did well academically, and it almost became somewhat of an escape from home… but she didn’t feel safe there, either. she was the “weird loner.” she had a few friends, but they turned out to be fake. they all left her once she started experimenting with drinking alcohol to cope. she was lucky enough to get a scholarship to get into the art school of her dreams in new york, and once she graduated, she left her home in chicago, hoping to finally start a new life. well… she was wrong.

the college party scene sucked her in — especially because, hell, this was the 80s. hard drugs and alcohol left and right, it was a temptation she couldn’t resist.

that was how she met frank, or as he was known at the time, “adam.

he just happened to be sent to “investigate” a particularly unhinged party at the college, all because one of the students, charlie, happened to be an associate of kristof lazar, infamous new york crime-lord. charlie and sylvie had grown to know each other, and became what you could consider “drug buddies.” little did sylvie know that lazar was very much aware of her, and this “adam” was a corrupt detective who had decided to flirt with lawlessness. lazar was fascinating to him.

after the party, sylvie made the mistake of attempting to drive herself home. adam happened to spot her and arrested her for driving under the influence. honestly? if he hadn’t found her attractive, he would’ve just let her carry on. and so, adam became sylvie’s worst enemy. he’d taunt her and flirt with her, finding enjoyment out of getting under her skin and figuring out what made her tick. when she was finally able to go home, perhaps adam was a little… upset.

sylvie spent the next five years trying to forget about him and turn her life around. things genuinely seemed to be getting better for her, but then one night, she woke up in a mansion. “adam” was now “frank,” no longer a detective but a full-blown criminal. sylvie thought she’d never have to see his face again, but lambert had wanted him to hunt her down and bring her to this particular mansion, realizing that she, along with the rest of the “rat pack,” was needed for a particular kidnapping scheme. unfortunately for sylvie, she’d soon learn that this was all the doing of lazar’s daughter, abigail. abigail wanted sylvie there for a very particular reason… actually two reasons — she fucked with charlie, and her connection to frank. she figured forcing frank and sylvie to be in each other’s vicinity again would be interesting, and she was right. playing matchmaker was the last thing she expected she’d be doing, though.

after succumbing to his lust for power and allowing lambert to turn him into a vampire, frank betrayed the bit of trust that sylvie allowed herself to give to him. she had come to the unfortunate realization she was falling for him, and he only happened to hurt her again — in fact, he beat her up quite badly when she tried to defend joey from him. joey told her to run, and so she did, running into a forest. frank hunted her down, and out of a combination of realizing he didn’t want to lose her and pure bloodthirst, he bit her. if she was a vampire, then they’d be together forever, right? he just so happened to be falling for her too, but he didn’t want to admit that. no, he could never. after nearly killing her due to sheer bloodlust, the little humanity that was left in frank told him to save her.

he was realizing he needed her, and it was scaring him.

i’ll make a follow-up post that is more of an analysis-type post of frank and sylvie’s relationship if you guys would be interested 🤭 SORRY FOR MAKING THIS SO LONG i do a bit of yapping sometimes. sylvie is my baby 🙏

ABOUT ME

——————

AUDHD + BPD • 17 Y/O • HE/HIM • INTP 6w7

what up, the name’s steven but you can also call me JT, doesn’t really matter but i do prefer steven more. this account is primarily a fandom account but on occasion you might see me post about my other interests (music, science, the 80s, literature, etc). my hyperfixations rotate at the speed of light. my current hyperfixation is dan stevens / abigail (2024).

basic dni criteria applies. other than that, i don’t really care who interacts with me and i’ll just block you if i feel uncomfortable. feel free to send me stuff in my inbox or message me, i really do appreciate interactions!


DISCLAIMERS / WARNINGS

———————————————

• i’m a minor.

• i might vent on here.

• i reclaim r*tard, tr*nny, and f*g / f*gg*t.


MY WORKS

——————

since watching “abigail” i’ve gotten back into writing fanfics and i guess just writing in general. anything i’ve written i’ll link here. i’ll also include any ideas for potential works that i have planned.

FRAGMENTS OF FEAR (fic) — abigail fanfic that is set in the 80s. features my oc sylvia “sylvie” halford who’s got some history with frank. features some enemies to lovers type shit, smut, a bit of gore, and there Will Be Angst. WORK IN PROGRESS.

A VIOLENT MANNER (upcoming fic) — this will be another 80s-based fic that is based on the guest. main characters are goth girl louise and her best friend beverly. louise ends up meeting the creepy and mysterious southerner by the name of david collins and everything goes downhill. this one is called “a violent manner” for a reason trust me bro

THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG (upcoming fic) — follow-up to fragments of fear. frank and sylvie’s “relationship” (whatever the hell it is) will be developed on a bit more in this one. will follow sylvie’s slow, gradual transformation into a vampire and the chaos that unfolds. totally not gonna be inspired a bit by possession (1981) for this one…
