“But if I had to choose, the companion would be Louis.”
VC: Toy Story by ~Garama
I think that was when she was still promoing wolves of midwinter and since the fandom of Teen Wolf was there for their panels i could easily see her being like “check out my werewolf novels” plus those shows there might have had contact w/ uni versal
Ah, ok. I can still dream about graphic novels tho. Siiiigh. Just look at this it’s begging to be a full graphic novel ;A;

if the phantom of the opera has taught me anything it’s that if all else fails you set the place on fire and cry
And if the Vampire Chronicles have taught me anything it’s that if all else fails, you set the place on fire and mope.
Yeah, pretty much!
We make fun of Louis for his pyromania so much
hell I do it too!, but he was a plantation owner and that means slash & burn may have been part of the regular crop production. Setting fires was a step in standard operating procedure. Wiki says: “The resulting ash fertilizes the soil and the burned field is then planted at the beginning of the next rainy season with crops…”
But then you have this exchange from IWTV:
“ ‘Fire purifies …’ Claudia said. And I said, `No, fire merely destroys…’ ”
So yeah maybe it’s just the pyromania…
OMFG THAT IMAGE IN YOUR HEAD!!! CAN SOMEBODY DRAW THIS PLEASE???
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…?
Apparently, Universal has acquired the rights to the Vampire Chronicles books, and possible plans include remaking IWTV and QOTD
I think I need a drink…
This is your chance to cast! I don’t know how to feel about this news.
Oh gosh, if only! I’d kill for the chance to do that…
And same here – I have a feeling that this is either going to be really good or absolutely horrible
Just have to cross my fingers and hope that they don’t make another Antonio-Banderas-as-Armand kind of mistake again. We deserve so much more.
I still watch IWTV and sit there like O.o every time he appears – I just want to know what possessed them to cast him?? I picture them reading his description in TVL and just going “lololol no fuck that”
But on the other hand, will the new Claudia be as good as Kirsten Dunst’s Claudia, because she was pretty much perfect. That’s going to be a tough act to follow…
I just want an actually slavic redheaded teenager looking boy for Armand for once.
Also for them to not whitewash David pls
Ok… I used to be completely on board with the Banderas!Armand haters but I’ve grown pretty nostalgic about that casting, and actually figured out why they did that.
If they had cast a cherubic teenage redhead it might have been confusing to people who hadn’t read the books, and might have taken the sympathy away from Louis (who was supposed to remain the focus, it’s HIS story, after all). That would have been compromised by omg cute little redhead bby we want to snuggles you!
In the interest of that story, and keeping it accessible to an audience who had not read the book(s), Armand was to be the teacher/father figure Louis didn’t get from Lestat. They had to cast someone:
So that’s my little defense of Banderas!Antonio. I’ve left the bandwagon of hating on him, he did a magnificent job with Armand, if you think about what I wrote.
… I will admit that the wig was pretty silly, but maybe he was meant to be slightly like those Asian senpais of old, with all that long hair. Maybe it was a nod to Marius, who had long hair bc he wasn’t allowed to cut it for like 7 months before he was turned. Who knows…
Of the thousands of immortals immolated in the rise of Akasha, Armand was one of the precious few who remained. And why is that do you wonder? There is nothing mysterious to it, in fact it is made quite plain.
As much as we grind on each other, at the very bottom of the bitterness, resentment, and jealousy Armand is a beloved of mine. He is my dark brother whom I have known almost the entirety of my immortality. Life with out him would seem…incomplete.
To answer your question is Armand expendable? Absolutely not.
