So I was at the eye doctor today and I was wondering for the sake of it- Lestat getting his eyes checked and boasting he’s got the best eyes in the world but when it comes down to it he’s got imperfect vision and needs to walk out with glasses and tears in his eyes dramatically begging Louis to say it isn’t true.

Lol he would be the BIGGEST crybaby about that! He’d probably think of himself as deformed in some way and need even more cuddling and ego-stroking to get over it.

Considering vampire physiology, some things are “corrected” by the Dark Gift. All of their senses become enhanced. Gabrielle got a nice rack lift.

It won’t regrow some missing parts, like eyes (Maharet), a leg (Flavius), or a cut-out tongue (Mekare). I’m not sure as to whether vision would be corrected. 

Lestat didn’t mention his vision being an issue, and he would have needed good vision to be a good hunter as a mortal, maybe not 20/20, but good enough. It’s interesting to consider, tho!

…And then, he did lose an eye at one point, and I like to headcanon that even though he got it back, that eye was never quite the same.

Lestat >:3 i am so in love with you Q////Q … u///-////u I been preaching your god damn word in every place i go… 737/ all my friends read your books now, my boyfriend, xD c: Tell Louis to love you… LOUIS PLZ love him back <3

♛ Darling, you have done me proud! I’ll send you a set of satin sheets as a reward for being such a loyal and devoted admirer *kisses* See, this is why I write these books, so that people will actually know my side of the story and see that I’m pretty f*cking LOVABLE.

I’ve been telling Louis to love me for years, he has improved over time, but yes, I’ll show him your message, remind him tonight, and I’ll try to do it without crying…

Besides the facts that Lestat is a serial killer and essentially does the opposite of what he’s advised, why is there so much chatter about “you wouldn’t want to be his friend”, “he’s not the one you’d want to be around”?? What else has Lestat done to make himself sound so unpleasant?

You can sum it up with “Does not play well with others.”

He’s kind of a bitch. In the books, he’s impulsive, a bully… he’s constantly biting back insults, violence, and laughter just to function in conversation. He covers up a lot of insecurity with bravado and that doesn’t always work in his interactions with others. He also dissolves into tears fairly easily.

Unfortunately monogamy is also difficult for him. He needs a lot of attention from a lot of sources. He’ll purposely sabotage a relationship, subconsciously or deliberately, to engage in another with someone else 😛 And regret doing so.

THAT said, he can also be the most loving out of all of the VC characters. He’s got a lot of love to give, and he gets frustrated when people don’t accept it the way he wants to give it.
