Most of the last 24 hours we’ve been discussing what a Disney Adaptation of Dracula might look like-

The conclusion we’ve come to is that Dracula occupies a role reserved typically for Disney princesses but with a Gothy lean in demeanor, dress and the types of woodland creatures he’d talk to.

I even have some sketches.

I regret nothing.

New book for my collection.
I originally read this one after stumbling upon it at a local community college I was attending at the time. I had to order a used copy on Amazon, but I finally own it.

Because I see people whining in the tags about how ‘inaccurate’ Dracula Untold is going to be.

Stop.

This is fiction.

Dracula as a fictional character has fascinated people from all over the world- He appears as far afield as Japan in popular fiction- and as a character has quite a different life from his real-life historical figure.

Granted they are mixing in fact, but that happens.

See King Arthur- They do this with him sometimes, too. Dracula is romanticized on the same level- The only difference being is that Dracula does not have an entire saga written about him from Ye Olden Times. (Historically speaking there are some lengthy poems on Dracula, but I am unsure any whole manuscripts survive… though I could be wrong.)

Calm down.

Nobody is stealing Vlad the Impaler, and no one is trying to take your precious cranky bby of a vampire away, either.

Learn you some things- I’m seeing a whole heck of a lot of false information going around- For the BILLIONTH TIME- So here are some books-

Florescu and McNally’s two books are two of the best by far in English-

Dracula: Prince of many faces- (I’ve gone through two copies and still cite it regularly)-

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/73989.Dracula_Prince_of_Many_Faces

'In Search of Dracula' Is Florescu and McNally's first book about Vlad the Impaler that lead to Prince of Many Faces. (No link for this one. I thought it would be redundant.)

Vlad the III Dracula: The Life and Times of the historical Dracula-

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/72490.Vlad_III_Dracula

(Ignore the guy whining about the book being too political in tone- not much is known about Dracula the man- He was so private no one even knows if he was married to the woman who’s been labeled his first wife.)

Vlad The Impaler: In Search of the real Dracula:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/72505.Vlad_the_Impaler

IIRC This one primarily broke down what facts there are in order to assess whether or not Dracula’s reputation for brutality was founded or not.

I’ve read ALL these books- ‘Life and Times…” Is the only one I did not read cover to cover.

The mummified heart is said to be that of vampire Auguste Delagrance, responsible for the deaths of more than forty people back in the 1900, a period of vampirism in the USA. When he was identified, Delagrance was hunted down by a Romano Catholic priest and a Voodoo Hougan, and was destroyed in 1912. (x)

This is fucking Rad
