Well yeah, there have been trapdoors in theatres for ages. A trapdoor wasn’t necessary for this since Lestat got the info of Nicolas’ death from a letter. If you mean that even Eleni was fooled, then, yes, that’s possible. But I think Eleni was close to Nicolas and would be in on the scheme.
So who knows, maybe Eleni wrote the letter at Nicolas’ request, or Armand’s request… maybe Nicolas himself asked her to do it. We don’t know his reasons for suicide just as we don’t know why he’d fake his death. If he faked his death, we can probably assume he didn’t want Lestat to know he was alive or try to search for him, EVER. Eleni and Armand are both still in canon as far as Prince Lestat, so only they can answer these questions.
Did AR intend that death to have been faked or real? We have unreliable narrators *shrug* She hasn’t made any hints as to Nicolas resurfacing in the next book, but at this point IT WOULDN’T SURPRISE ME. In fact, I would love for us to have our very own Civil War
[And it was paired with an image that appears to be of model Tomek Szczukiecki][so maybe it’s him?]
Sorry to tell ya that I DON’T KNOW WHO THE AUDIO IS FROM ;A; AND THE ORIGINAL POST DIDN’T TAG HIM, EITHER. @devilsviolinist was the original poster and I’m not sure if that mun is active… try asking them and report back if you find out.
YES! Someone draw this… unionthesalmon? permanentglitter? Beuller? Would u draw Lestat carting sweet baby Jesus behind him in a Radio Flyer wagon with a little entourage of the cutest orphans… maybe he’s bringing them to Dora the nun…?

ooc: I don’t like it 😦
Do you know what I hate? Smile lines. They’re right up there with wrinkles. In fact that’s what it is. One big fat wrinkle. Lestat doesn’t have wrinkles. /// but omfg what if Lestat was real and this was actually him and he was having a fucking panic attack bc we all disliked his photo???
