I’ve had a death in the family and my sister is getting a divorce and so I’ve been stuck in a creative limbo of late.
I hope everyone doesn’t mind the non-ask content of late. I’ve got seven messages sitting in the inbox that my emotionally drained state has not allowed me to touch over the last month or so.
I’m starting to feel less drained and so I’m hoping in the coming weeks I can go back to the inbox and gives some answers.

Anonymous asked: Have you seen Dracula from 1979? The dance scene from Friday's ep is and that movie is pretty much the same. Could you gif them side by side :)
sorry I don’t have that movie, but I’ll gif the dancing scene from the NBC version :)
IIRC that’s the movie with Frank Langella as Dracula. Its one of my personal favorites, and I was thinking the same thing!

I wrote this fic about six months before the show came out. Its unfinished, and I’m really not sure I want to return to it since the show is going and re-writing (re-defining?) Dracula as it is.
Nonetheless, I’m still proud of my work->
On an unrelated side, here are some headcanons I’ve adopted while watching the show. Drop a ficlet in my box if one inspires you to write something!
- Drac/Alex isn’t drinking whiskey like a fish. That’s tuica. (Its a Romanian plum brandy)
- Renfield is a college graduate who was having a hard time finding someone willing to work with him. His total unflappability impressed Drac/Alex SO MUCH that he hired him as soon as they met.
- van Helsing has always been fascinated by vampires and has been secretly searching for a cure. Hence why he was thrown out of the Order.
- Lady Jayne is the last in a long line of illustrious vampire hunters. Her Father decided that continuing the family ‘business’ was more important than the sexist BS of the times and trained his daughter to be the best damn vampire hunter the world has ever known.
~~ Feel free to drop some headcanons in my inbox~~
If anyone out there would like a small ficlet; related to the show or judt Dracula in general, feel free to drop me a line!

Since NBC has resurrected the long dead order, I believe some Background and history is in order.
From Dracula: Prince of Many Faces (Florescu &McNally)
…” The Order (of the Dragon) had originally been founded by the Holy Roman Emperor and his second wife, Barbara Cilli, in 1387 and reorganized on December 13, 1408, with the character of a secret fraternal society. Like other semimilitary and religious orders of knights… its ostensible objectives and duties were protecting the German king and his family, defending the empire, shielding widows and orphans, and going into mourning and praying for the deceased members of the society…. The reason for the “secret” character of the order, in the eyes of its founders, was the undeclared ultimate aim of gaining for the house of Luxemburg political supremacy in Europe.”
I skipped a few things, but you get the idea. Lets break it down-
