I’ll crush you underneath my hoof.
Then I’ll take the poison juice,
And feed it to my chosen few ♫
After a looong time i needed to draw something small just for myself.
idk I just love how we Young People Today use ~improper~ punctuation/grammar in actually really defined ways to express tone without having to explicitly state tone like that’s just really fucking cool, like
no = “No,” she said.
no. = "No,” she said sharply.
No = “No,” she
No. = “No,” she snapped.
NO = “No!” she shouted.
noooooo = “No,” she moaned.
no~ = “No,” she said with a drawn-out sing-song.
~no~ = “No,” she drawled sarcastically.
NOOOOO = “No!” she screamed dramatically.
no?! = “No,” she said incredulously.
I’ve been calling this “typographical nuance” and I have a few more to add:
*no* = “No,” she said emphatically.
*nopes on out of here* = “No,” she said of herself in the third person, with a touch of humorous emphasis.
~*~noooo~*~ = “No,” she moaned in stylized pseudo-desperation.
#no = “No,” she added as a side comment.
“no” = “No,” she scare-quoted.
wtf are you kiddingno = “No,” she said flatly. “And I can’t believe I have to say this.”
no no No No NO NO NO NO = "No,” she repeated over and over again, growing louder and more emphatic.
nooOOOO = “No,” she said, starting out quietly and turning into a scream.
*no = “Oops, I meant ‘no,’” she corrected, “Sorry for the typo in my previous message.”
I cannot express how strongly I absolutely love language and writing and communication but if anyone asks why I will be showing them this post from now on
this is great, but I got to “no no No No NO NO NO NO” and immediately started singing “mamma mia, mamma mia, mamma mia let me go”
no no no nO (no no no)= “No,” she said, sticking to the status quo

Prince Lestat is thinking of writing a guide to etiquette and clothes for for gentleman and lady vampires. He’s disgusted with all the poorly dressed vampires he’s seen on TV, and sick to death of seeing them spill blood all over themselves. The well dressed gentleman or lady vampire never spills a drop of blood on anyone anywhere. And clothes are always a statement, whether we intend it or not — or so he says. Of course he’s pondering the etiquette of the “little drink,” and when to spellbind. He’s taking notes, gathering his thoughts for his guide. I’ll have an update soon.

//ooc; Mun is answering this for Lestat, bc he would just tell you to go after whatever you find beautiful! Nothing is off-limits. But he doesn’t comprehend time, effort, and financial limitation for mortals *pouts*
[^the movie the Craft has some gr9
I don’t know what your budget is but you don’t need to spend a ton of money to achieve some great vampiry fashion looks. @transylvaniateaparty shops at H&M (very affordable stuff, I get nice tops there for like $12 sometimes!) and thrift stores.
Based on what you’re saying, this youtuber kittenmoustache might be a good inspiration for you.
kittenmoustache is pale, has dark hair, and a gothy aesthetic, and all their makeup tutes would probably work for your eye color!
Fashion-wise, you could look at what she’s wearing, too, for inspiration.
has anyone written the incredibly ridiculous coffeshop AU premise for Louis and Lestat yet? Like, is there a Vamp Chron Coffee Shop AU?
are they all human for this?
Like for some reason Louis is the moody neighborhood barista introvert and he probably doesn’t NEED to work the counter, probably he OWNS the damn coffee shop because his family is loaded but he just wanted a quiet place to read and an excuse to buy an industrial latte machine, but NOW he has a damn coffee shop and this OBNOXIOUS, utterly obnoxious customer who is also very blond comes in near closing all the goddamn time, and Louis hates this guy’s guts, like, so hard, and Obnoxious Blond is always trying to flirt and god he isn’t even that funny and he probably doesn’t even KNOW HOW TO READ. Louis hates him. So much. So, so much. Louis hates him and his stupid pretty eyes. Why does he come here? WHY WON’T HE LEAVE?
And then Lestat makes his move and then they make out wildly and probably break furniture, the end.
