wat is the significance of the cute cat in the top hat on your header?

Thanks for noticing the kitteh 😀 I am a cat person, though currently catless ;A; so having one in my header is like having one w/o the litterbox to deal with, but also without the cuddles *cries*

It’s the cat from this meme (and Idk how old it is, but I think it’s ancient enough to be called a ”macros,” which is what we used to call them) and it always makes me smile:


^the caption is so Lestatuesque. Is this not what happened, in fact? Did he not fight his own ass in the desert? But that’s TOBT, which isn’t canon for some ppl.

ANYWAY I love cats, vampires are catlike… I had planned on changing the cat’s hat/accessories for different holidays, but that didn’t happen bc I was so frickin’ fussy with the drafts, revising my blog layout, that I got tired from it so VERY LITTLE has really changed lol…

It was inspired by this post from 3 years ago, comparing cute cats in top hats (THIS TOP HATTED KITTEN LOOKS SHOPPED… I CAN TELL FROM SOME OF THE PIXELS AND FROM SEEING QUITE A FEW SHOPS IN MY TIME.)

I’m sorry I’ve seen ^that pic^ a few times now and I can’t help but think this:


Hey, I just realised that there’s a damn cat with a top hat right in your blog and I don’t know how the hell does that relate with VC, BUT IT SOMEHOW DOES <3333333 #vampiresandcatswearingtophats

It’s this lil kitteh bein’ all Lestatuesque [X] that’s how it relates to VC! Not my meme, but I love it:


um yes of course 



[X] I might be changing the cat’s hat/accessories for different holidays tho! ❤

Louis and Lestat, how much do you guys hate twilight?


[X] //ooc: they are refusing to answer this because they see the Twilight series as the author’s wish fulfillment

fantasy, and they don’t want to step on anyone’s feelings, but neither of them would want to go to high school for centuries, nor do they have any issues killing people now. Lestat is a little jealous of the sparkling tho, so he just wears face and/or body glitter sometimes.

Dearest Lestat (I hope it is alright to use your first name?) Other than your own, what is your favourite vampire book or series?

//Sorry, my Lestat can’t answer this one 😛 Since I haven’t read many other vampire books or series, I can’t consider what his opinion would be on them! 

He’d probably be more into the vampire movies and graphic novels/comics than novels and series. Lestat was into

Sam Spade

comics before it was cool to be a giant nerd! ;D 

He does read books, he did a lot of reading to educate himself on the state of the world in 1984, but remember how he felt about Gabrielle’s bookworminess: “I hated the sight of her books; I hated her absorption in them.”

However, I did ask around and got some recs from other ppl about other vampire books/series Lestat might like:


  • The Historian (for its worldliness), 
  • Dracula (for its stereotype-setting content), 
  • Lord Ruthven (Byronic vampire, Lestat doesn’t catch the irony of John Polidori’s mockery of the foppish, arrogant, and well…Lord-Byron-y vampire)
  • Tanith Lee’s vampire series was out when Lestat was playing rockstar
  • The Delicate Dependency, for romance and decadence.
  • and also A Taste of Blood Wine, also for romance and decadence.


  • Carmilla is good
  • Anita Blake and Sookie Stackhouse books, but only the early ones.
  • the Rachel Morgan series but again starts out good gets weird later and it’s not about vampires so much as there are vampires in it.

Anyone can reblog/comment and add to this what you think Lestat might like to read! We’ll make this a recc post under #vc adjacent recs.
