About this chill
Tumblr media
My heart beat as I saw the house on which so much of our hope was centred, looming up grim and silent in its deserted condition amongst its more lively and spruce-looking neighbours. We sat down on a bench within good view, and began to smoke cigars so as to attract as little attention as possible.
So uh how chill do you think Jonathan managed to pretend to look.

Because if God is such a god that would force his Mina through all that suffering only to have her die in pain then Jonathan doesn't want to know God

The bad dracula adaptations are easier to swallow if you think of them as having Dracula behind the scenes on every film doing revisionist history as a his petty, century spanning revenge on the DracAttackPack
Thematically, I could almost see it. But then that would mean he was also the one actively defanging all of his cinematic stand-ins and turning them into the directors' vampire-banging fanfic insert. Including the smarmy headache that was posing and GQing around in The Invitation.
Even if it was in the name of long game prickishness, I think Dracula would rather take a holy water jacuzzi than have a hand in presenting himself as Vampire Ken Doll to the masses

Van Helsing and the Suitors Three reacting to Lucy the Bloofer Lady: Alas! She is the undead and past redemption now! The only answer is to slay her, send her saintly pure virgin angel soul to Heaven and be rid of this wretched metaphor monster! <:’(
Jonathan, ready to murder, die, undie, and sell his soul for Mina regardless of what she may become, prepared to flip God a double bird if He thinks abandoning her is the right thing to do: Out of my way choir boys, I’m about to blaspheme

It interested me, even at that moment, to see, that, whilst the face of white set passion worked convulsively over the bowed head, the hands tenderly and lovingly stroked the ruffled hair.
pov: you are dracula and mr jonathan harker is about to piñata you with his bigass knife

So, remember that Dracula sequel I’m working on?
Well, I was going to hold out to a certain page count, but since today feels like an especially fine moment in Dracula Daily land, I’m ready to show a small something. 
This…
Tumblr media
…is now here:
Tumblr media
If my pace keeps like this, I imagine this might be the first third of the book. Maybe only a quarter. For context, my giant copy of medium-print Dracula clocks in at just under 400 pages. Assuming I keep my progress as-is, this AU sequel might be a doorstopper that outweighs Stoker’s work.
Because I do love me some words.
Especially words about certain silver-haired protagonists, their wives, a return to an ominous old castle in the mountains, and, spoilers, having one of today’s heaviest lines coming back to bite our favorite solicitor:
“I care for nothing now,” he answered hotly, “except to wipe out this brute from the face of creation. I would sell my soul to do it!”
Brave talk. But such a low asking price. One dead vampire and no guarantee of Mina’s salvation? He sells himself short! Why not aim for something more concrete? 
Like, say…

Love, Vampirism, and Metaphor in Dracula: Van Helsing and the Suitors VS The Harkers
I’m writing this on the day of the September 29th entry, fresh from the second death of Lucy Westenra, Bloofer Lady and Beloved of Many. I see myself posting this on October 3rd, the day of Dracula in the bedroom and the holiest love quote. You know the one.
‘To one thing I have made up my mind: if we find out that Mina must be a vampire in the end, then she shall not go into that unknown and terrible land alone. I suppose it is thus that in old times one vampire meant many; just as their hideous bodies could only rest in sacred earth, so the holiest love was the recruiting sergeant for their ghastly ranks.’
Harrowing, horrifying in its implications for our good friend Jonathan Harker, and, when held up against the wall-to-wall likeminded alignment of the Suitors Three, of Van Helsing, and, it seems, of Mina ‘Down to Self-Sacrifice’ Harker, a quiet but unmissable sore thumb sticking out of the rest of the novel’s dogma. Let’s turn the pages back a bit.
