(Fanart by Hunsay for Berserk, source)
Appropriating this for the night of Lestat’s big break:
“It came in late August at last. Paris was at its warmest, and the nights were almost balmy… The crowd was standing up to applaud us… These were Parisians shouting for Lelio and Flaminia to come back out.
"That night Nicolas and I celebrated with a colossal drunk. We had all the troupe up to our rooms for it, and I climbed out on the slippery rooftops and opened my arms to Paris and Nicolas played his violin in the window until we’d awakened the whole neighborhood. The music was rapturous… We were dancing and singing as we had in the witches’ place. I almost fell off the window ledge.” – Lestat de Lioncourt, The Vampire Lestat (Part 1, Ch. 7)
