Marius and Armand at Marriage Counseling for @laurasking
This was a fun commission, I love it when people give me a whole scene to work with! As you can see, they have a lot to work out between them…
[Anon refers to this post] Maybe you’re the good half of Lestat, when he’s on his best behavior and everything is all lovey-dovey, which lasts about 12 minutes at a time, lol. Or maybe it’s more like this:
That sounds like a great friend, though! Always good to have someone as grounded as Louis who wants to talk about those things ;]
#Fanart request. So many of our characters taking on the 24-hr handcuff challenge could be hilarious. They would need to use enchanted chains like the ones in MtD or else it would be too easy to break out ;]
(One of my fics has a similar concept, L/L “tied together” for a night: A Precious Material.)

We don’t really know much about mortal!Louis’ sex life… in the movie he had been married, and the wife had died in childbirth,
one would hope that was his kid, and then he was hanging around w/ whores when he was trying to get himself killed, but he barely even acknowledges that one whore’s presence, even though he has his arm around her to stabilize himself. My general impression of Louis is that of all the vampires, he’s one of the least sexually-motivated.
In IWTV, Louis tells Claudia re: sex: “ ‘It was something hurried,’ I said, trying now to meet her eyes. How perfectly, coldly blue they were. How earnest. ‘And… it was seldom savored… something acute that was quickly lost. I think that it was the pale shadow of killing.’ ”
We don’t know if he just said that to be make her feel better about the fact that she’ll never experience it but Louis usually tells the truth.
I don’t think Louis would have had sex w/ Merrick.
So would Merrick and Louis have had sex? If Merrick wanted it she probably could have voodoo’d him into it, she voodoo’d him into breaking his moral principle to never make another vampire. Without bewitching him, I’d say no.
Thank you for this comment, bc I did some real percolating on it and I am happy to answer you.
I tagged it that way bc often I’ll see posts on my dash where someone has used a gif from a source, which hasn’t been tagged, and I’ll see tags or comments like, “Who is this hot guy?!” “Where is this from?!” which is so sad, bc they might really want to know and get into that fandom! So in tagging it #Supernatural, it’s actually free advertising BACK to Supernatural; someone might see my post on their dash, and think, “What is this from? Oh, it’s tagged Supernatural. Maybe I should check that show out, this guy looks like he could be a great actor…” And then you might gain awesome fresh blood in your fandom, who could turn out to be your new best friend (or even something more!, ppl meet the love of their life through fandom, I kinda hope to do so, too) ^_____^
I also enjoy the fact that other fandoms bleed into each other sometimes, bc fandom is an umbrella concept over so many of them (if not all). There are even crossover fanworks (fic, memes, etc.) between fandoms and different works of media, often enriching the experience of both. Especially when you have someone who can make really great meta-analysis comparing some aspect of one fandom to another, they might even make you ship smtg you never thought you’d ship.
As an example: One of our fandom ppl has moved onto the MCU!Avengers, but specifically the Steve Rogers/Tony Stark ship, and they convinced me that that ship has alot of similarity with Louis/Lestat. And now I can’t unsee it, and you could all lose me to Stony someday.
^Lestat/Louis meet Tony Stark/Steve Rogers, hilarity ensues. This is a fanwork that crossovers two different fandoms, and so much is conveyed without any dialogue at all, it’s all in the facial expressions and body positions and it gives me such feels whenever I look at it.

All that said, I’m sure I’m not the only one who has posted that gif with the #Supernatural tag. If you want a pure SPN tag, you can run your own blog and keep it as pure and clean as you like! And I don’t say that w/ any intended sassy attitude, it’s just a fact, and even though I wanted to keep my blog purely VC, I have found that embracing other fandoms is more inclusive and really does enrich the experience.
Yep. And he looks great either way, of course. Here he is at a hipster party, wearing fake glasses and a vintage Satan’s Night Out shirt ^____^

Ah! Such high praise, thank u! That means a lot, coming from you.
Of course I am more than happy to explain u all a thing or two
or a bazillionabout VC *u*
Please feel free to ask or share or participate in any way at all, bc of reasons.
And I learn so much about Captain America from americancaptaincomic! Children of Darkness (<—what we are perhaps calling ourselves now),
People Off the Page (<—what I have been calling ourselves before), my fanged little trash kittens and monsters (<—new thing I started calling ourselves), go check out this fanart/webcomic, the style is so charming and the writing so smart, you may find yourself slipping into being a Stony shipper, as I have become.
Psssst Steve/Tony is similar to Louis/Lestat! Ego size comparisons are a match for Lestat and Tony, har har har…
People Off The Page? THAT’S BRILLIANT.
Here’s this I prepared actually years earlier.
I LOVE this! Both couples! What a crossover! Tony is all, “There’s a 5 ft protective radius around Steve and you better BOTH respect it unless you want the package deal of testing out the business end of the flamethrowers I just installed.”
(People Off the Page: If you like this style as much as I do which is ALOT, I’ve got some more of it under #Therapy with the Vampire)
“People Off the Page” is pretty damn clever if I do say so myself. Unfortunately it has the same acronym as the group who slavishly follows our fandom’s creator but WHATEVER.
This week we interview the academic writer and artist Robyn Kenealy, the genius behind Steve Rogers’ American Captain and Roddy’s Film Companion. We discuss the comic industry, both local and inter…
Who would like to listen to an hour of me being a pretentious drunk asshole? All of you? That’s what I thought, here you go.
This is not VC, but WHATEVA WHATEVA I do what I want.
Notbutseriouslyy’all, this is the artist who convinced me that a really good comparison could be drawn between Tony Stark and Lestat de L., and now I can’t unsee it, so you should follow her and read her comic and also she is the beautiful mind & hand behind this fanart:
^Bonus points for Lestat having an opinion on a Twilight character.
