Ah, yes, I can do that… books or movie? Probably both, I assume. That’ll take awhile to compile. Can’t promise I can do that very soon but maybe someone reading this wants to take it on? Hmmm? Volunteers?
I still have the other proj of pulling ridiculous Lestat quotes from the rest of canon, which I have yet to sit down and do.
For now, try my #rue royale / #Another typical night at the Rue Royale tags, which have posts that I feel like are typical affectionate and/or arguing old couple™ stuff, not necessarily canon, but still… like this right here:
(If you just want fluff, I have a #cuddles tag for that.)
Thanks! Much appreciated. Here’s an oldie but a goodie for ya…
…..aaaaand these ppl make VC memes! Check theirs out, I might have some of their memes mixed into my #by someone else tag (in no special order):
If anyone knows of other blogs that do VC memes/memeythings, reblog/comment plz.
Why do I call them memeythings?? Well, when I started making them, I wasn’t sure if they really counted as “memes” bc “memes” as I understood them, had to be some widely-accepted joke first… text from somewhere else, so I called mine memeythings instead, bc I did some of my own “writing” for them, like this “boop your nose” one, but now it’s normal to make up your own text or grab text from anywhere and it counts as a “meme,” I think. I still like the word, tho, so I’m keeping it.
I met a photographer in New Orleans who said Anne Rice told him she started dressing flashier because Elvis came to her in a dream and told her to. God bless Anne Rice.
You can really see the before and after of Ghost-Elvis fashion advice
Woah that is a lot of questions! I’m gonna respond to the comment about the negative reviews and the ask for Lestat
separately, for clarity.
[X] For VC faaaanfic:
- Archive of Our Own (AO3) is your best bet for VC fanfic.
- I have a bunch of reccs on this post here.
- #Fresh Fanfic tag
- #Fanfic and #Fanfiction tags (unfortunately they include commentary ABOUT fanfic as well as links to fanfic but oh well… someday I’ll organize it further).
- My own fanfic is under Burnadette_dpdl
There’s also some fine stuff in the @vcsecretgifts archive ❤
There’s good stuff right here on tumblr, too. VC RPers write threads and answer asks in character, which you might like, and some of them also write drabbles from time to time, try these links/tags to find them:
- A VC RP roundup post
- #headcanon and #headcanon accepted tags
- #damn you and your perfect headcanon perfection tag.
Other ppl who might be able to help:
I really dislike that movie as a whole, but I know many ppl enjoy it for what it is and/or find it nostalgic, so I try to keep my negative opinions about it to myself.
(by textsfromthevampire ^This meme actually works in reference to Lestat and Stuart Townsend AS Lestat.)
The long answer is:
I didn’t hate Townsend. I don’t like to throw hate on actors for their acting. I’d say ST did the best he could with what he was given. His failure as Lestat was a group effort (makeup, costume, script writer, dialogue coach, director, editor, sfx, etc. all had a hand in what we got on the screen) much as Cruise’s success was a group effort (wherein all those things previously mentioned came together so perfectly).
The actor is one part of the machine in creating that character. The failure or success of the character can ultimately be placed on the director since s/he’s the one who coordinates and makes all the aesthetic choices for the entire film.
But again, some ppl really enjoyed him as Lestat, maybe for the same reasons I /disliked/ his performance! Everyone has their own taste, ppl frequently disagree with the Academy Awards (why hasn’t Tom Cruise gotten one yet???!!), it’s all very subjective.
