The brute strength of a vampire:
able to lift a coffin like it’s a surf board.

1791年,剛結婚就拒絕同房 )
萊斯特想也想不透為什麼這個雛鳥居然可以拒絕他
VC系列的吸血鬼力量最弱好像也有人類的20倍
在小說裡他們總是棺材隨手拿來拿去的,好像只是拿著衝浪板一樣的輕鬆….

I may feel bad for saying this, but I really, kind of don’t want there to be more movies. I know TVC is underappreciated but I really like that it’s a book fandom, book only (apart from 2 movies but w/e) and I just don’t want movies to cheapen it or represent the books in a bad light or for it to get overly popular- or the worst scenario- for it to be associated with the vampires of today *shivers*

I know what you mean, Louis would probably agree w/ you for similar (or the same!) reasons why he wants Lestat to stop writing any more books or authorizing his ghostwriter to do so.

[I just don’t want movies to cheapen it or represent the books in a bad light…]

^So I think Josh Boone is going to handle the material very respectfully, looking at the way he tagged up the Stand for that adaptation, he clearly is treating that book like it’s the Bible for that project *u* We’ll see how the Stand fandom (what do they call themselves? now I’m curious) reacts when that adaptation comes out, as my Dad says, “The proof is in the pudding.”

Hit the jump for more response, cut for length.


[…or for it to get overly popular-]

^It might get overly popular! We might have overly fanatic fans! But we can handle that, we already deal with having the Facebook factions of the VC fandom, some of which are pretty zealous in their loyalty to AR, and from what they ask her (like ”Is Lestat really bisexual/gay???”) I wonder how they read the same books as we did. Just bc there’s more interest in it doesn’t mean you have to participate w/ the influx. 

We also had an influx when Prince Lestat came out, and they seem to be absorbing into our ranks alright.

[…or the worst scenario- for it to be associated with the vampires of today *shivers*] 

^Comparisons will be made to other vampire media, reviewers will review, haters gonna hate. You can tune all that out. Boone knows it will be held to the standard of movie!IWTV, and the standard of all his fave vampire media, so I’m sure he won’t invest the time and effort into smtg he knows can’t handle that level of scrutiny.

In general, I think @phoenifia/@firelight-fading put it really well in their post here, which I will quote some lines from, (I bolded a few things for emphasis):

I think everyone needs to keep in mind that everyone doesn’t share a collective mind- everyone read these books individually so everyone is going to have a different opinion on how certain plot events happened and how certain characters look. Boone is one of those people and he’s the one in control of how this film will look and develop…

#Your headcanon may vary 😉

On that note, just because a new film is coming out doesn’t mean that the values of past productions, like the IWTV movie with Tom Cruise, decrease. You can still enjoy it. You can still view Tom Cruise as the “perfect” Lestat. You can still choose to ignore the new film. What the new film does mean for the fandom is possible growth. Old loves for the books series will be rekindled and people will hopefully return. New fans will emerge who enjoy the film or are curious about the books. Considering Rice has lessened her hold on fanfiction restriction, that means more fanworks will possibly be generated. Lots of good things on the way even if the film is a flop.

So all in all, stay positive, go see the film to support Rice and the series if anything and if you don’t like it then it’s a done deal and you can fall back on other VC-related works. We’ll get through this irregardless.

^We’ll get through this irregardless *hugs*

Lestat is my favourite art meme

it’s 3:00 am,

have mercy on me(me)

The last one has transparent background so you can meme together with Lestat. Now that there’s the original screen cap I see how I didn’t even manage to catch the original expression goddammit

But I’m lazy so I’m not going to fix it, forgive me , THankyou & good night!

Can we just have this animated movie already? These look like stills from an animated movie and wE NEEDS IT

Intercepted text message from Lestat to Louis, co-written by @lestatthewolfkiller, inspired by this fanart by @reapersun

I do ship this OT3, but it had to be rocky in the beginning.

I’m reading the Queen of the Damned and all of a sudden Lestat woke up with a boner. The only combination of letters to represent my feelings right now would be: asdfghjkl

image

But the important question is, why did Louis memorize this passage?

Idk there’s some discussion whether “poised” meant “boner” and I never interpreted that way, bc how awkward would it be for them to all be walking around w/ tents pitched in their pants? I THINK IT WOULDA BEEN MENTIONED BEFORE. Like in IWTV when Lestat first appears to Louis. Pretty sure Louis would have run screaming. 

I think “poised” meant “waiting in normal default resting position,” which sounds alot less poetic, and I think his point in mentioning it was bc he woke up alot whiter, and it was bizarre to see that change all over his body. Plus all these women were coming into the room and they were barely able to keep from pouncing on his joysitck, bc, y’know, LESTAT.

To follow up on the previous anon, do you think Lestat loves Louis?? I certainly do!!!

#nobody ships Louis and Lestat harder than Lestat ships Louis and Lestat

Hey bud! I’m working on a Lestat cosplay rn, could you help me with ref pics? I especially need pics of his different shoes/boots and pants 💙

Bonjour~ You came to the right place… 

image

…but there aren’t many shots of his shoes or boots, really 😛 Not just to conceal the added heel height! There’s just more action going on in the face area ;]

Here’s a pic of one whole costume, w/ I think, the shoes that went w/ it (thumbnail below, check out the link for larger image).

image

He wears a bunch of outfits so I’m not sure which one you’re aiming for, but here’s a good post with several of them.

image

^Blurry combo gif is blurry but you can see his pants are generally just dark blue or black, to let the top half of his outfit be big and flashy. Tight pants would probably be best. Middle gif shows tight velvet leggings and knee high boots w/ what looks like a 2 inch heel:

image

Similar boots below, but they have a cuff, and different pants, these have button detailing (not sure how high those buttons go):
