I always love these, so when I saw [personal profile] adi_rotynd 's tumblr post with the first 4 books in synopsis, I had to try my hand at completing the list:

VC 


1. Lestat and Don’t Do the Thing: Make a Six-Year-Old into a Vampire

2. Lestat and Don’t Do the Thing: Be Famous

3. Lestat and Don’t Do the Thing: Wake the Mother of All Vampires and Honeymoon with Her While She Slaughters Thousands

4. Lestat and Don’t Do the Thing: Be Human While Some Random Dude Takes Your Superman Body for a Spin

5. Lestat and Don’t Do the Thing: Go to Heaven and Hell on Job Interview, it’s All Fun and Games until Someone Loses an Eye.

6. Lestat and Don’t Do the Thing: My Name is Armand and I am a Sex Addict, Etc. Also, Marius Totally Abandoned Me and He Sucks.

A little self-congratulation, and  these kinds of reaction are the reason I do this...
 
dreamlessmusic reblogged it with: "This is so fucking accurate that it hurts. Because you can’t stop laughing and so your belly starts to ache and you can’t breathe and you make unproper noises trying to contain yourself, but you just can’t ‘cause it’s too damn funny.

But, yeah, poor Lestat. Always fucking up things. Well, at least for 3 books he wasn’t the one doing it. This is a comforting thought. He’s still a lost case though."

demonpyromaniac reblogged it with: "This is so hilariously accurate! Nice job. (I haven’t read some of the later books in forever, but I’m laughing my ass off at the gentlemanly group bloodbath.)"

THIS IS MY LONGER RESPONSE TO THIS WEEK'S CAPSFRI http://vc-media.dreamwidth.org/222739.html

PARDON MY SILENCE, REAL LIFE INTRUDED. GRRRRRR. THIS COMMENT GOT UNMANAGABLY LONG, SO YOU CAN READ THE FULL RESPONSE IN MY OWN JOURNAL. I'LL EDIT IT DOWN OUT HERE, TO BE RESPECTFUL.

OK, ALSO TUMBLR HAS BEEN EXACERBATING MY VC ADDICTION. WHICH IS ACTUALLY RELEVANT TO THE TOPIC, ABOUT CHOICES AND DECISIONS, BECAUSE HERE I CHOSE TO STAY UP LATE TONIGHT TO MAKE THIS PIC BELOW, AND DO NOT REGRET IT AT ALL. I CHOSE TO MAKE A BUNCH OF SLIGHTLY OFFENSIVE VC MEMES IN THE PAST FEW WEEKS... AND DO NOT REGRET THAT AT ALL. PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ENJOYING THEM, WHICH IS QUITE ENCOURAGING :]

ANDY WARHOL: "AN ARTIST IS SOMEBODY WHO PRODUCES THINGS THAT PEOPLE DON'T NEED TO HAVE, BUT THAT HE - FOR SOME REASON - THINKS IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO GIVE THEM.” I THINK WHEN WE FEEL AN URGE TO DO SOMETHING CREATIVE, IT'S IMPORTANT TO MAKE THE CHOICE TO GIVE IN, AS LONG AS YOU'RE NOT HURTING ANYONE ELSE (UNLESS THEY WANT THAT, LOUIS), BECAUSE THAT FLOW OF INSPIRATION IS ENCOURAGED BY THE INDIVIDUAL ACTS OF GIVING-IN.

ALSO, I PROBABLY QUOTE ARMAND ON A WEEKLY BASIS: "...THE FIRST RULE. THAT WE MUST BE POWERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, AND WITHOUT REGRET." SOMETIMES THAT NEEDLESS REGRET OVER PAST CHOICES/DECISIONS IS SO STIFLING, THAT I REPEAT THIS LINE LIKE A MANTRA IN ORDER TO HAVE SOME PEACE. ALTHO I WONDER HOW ARMAND WAS GOING TO "TEACH" BEING WITHOUT REGRET, WHAT, ARE THERE LESSONS?

ARMAND: OKAY LOUIS, NOW SMASH THAT TEACUP.
LOUIS: BUT I DON'T REALLY WANT TO.
A: IT'S A PART OF THE LESSON. SMASH IT.
L: OKAY, BUT IT'S WASTEFUL. *SMASHES IT*
A: *GASPS* THAT WAS MY MOTHER'S!
L: OH NO, OH SORRY! I DIDN'T MEAN TO..
A: NONONO, YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO APOLOGIZE, THAT'S HOW 'NOT-REGRETTING' WORKS...
L: I DON'T THINK THESE LESSONS ARE WORKING. *SIIIIGH*

"WHAT ARE SOME DECISIONS THEY'VE MADE THAT THEY'RE HAPPY WITH? WHICH ONES DO THEY REGRET?"
MON DIEU WHAT DIFFICULT QUESTIONS... DEPENDS PARTLY ON WHAT YOU CONSIDER TO BE CANON. AT THE MOMENT, BECAUSE OF "GULFPORT," I HAVE ACCEPTED ALL OF THE VC AS CANON (A PAINFUL ACCEPTANCE) SO TO RESPOND WOULD TAKE INTO ACCOUNT SOME VERY AWFUL DECISIONS MADE, AND ALSO THERE WOULD BE POTENTIAL SPOILAGE.

TO BE SERIOUS FOR A MOMENT, HOWEVER, THE ULTIMATE QUESTION FOR LOUIS (WHETHER YOU CONSIDER MtD AS THE LAST OF THE CANON OR NOT) WOULD BE WHETHER HE REALLY REGRETS SAYING "YES" TO LESTAT. IT'S DOUBTFUL IF HE COULD EVER ADMIT TO HIMSELF THAT HE TRULY ADORES LESTAT, AND ADORED CLAUDIA, AND YES, DOES DERIVE PLEASURE IN THIS LIFE. ONLY MERRICK MADE HIM QUESTION THAT, REALLY, AND THAT'S UNFAIR BECAUSE SHE USED HER WITCHERY ON HIM. I WOULD SAY THAT IF LOUIS CAN'T ADMIT THAT HE'S ACTUALLY GLAD TO HAVE THIS LIFE, THEN HE ALSO CAN'T ADMIT THAT HE REGRETS IT. A FRUSTRATING POSITION.

BY WAY OF APOLOGY FOR THE LONG POST, ENJOY LESTAT IN THE LATEST FASHION FROM DOLCE & GABBANA, FALL 2013 COLLECTION:



AND THE WIDER SHOT (NOTICE THE JEWELRY!!):


WE HAVE A NO-VELVET-PANTS RULE? OR JUST FOR CERTAIN PEOPLE? NOT EVERYONE CAN LOOK GOOD IN VELVET PANTS... OR BEHAVE THEMSELVES IN THEM...

So this is my irrepressibly longer response to [profile] tori_writes's post "CAPSLOCK FRIDAY: WOULD YOU DO IT? EDITION" http://vc-media.dreamwidth.org/221174.html. A person could write volumes of dissertation on this subject. Especially with the caveats that:

1. IF YOU ACCEPT, HOWEVER, YOU MUST LEAVE YOUR LIFE BEHIND. YOU AREN'T ALLOWED TO TURN ANYONE YOU KNEW OR EVER SEE THEM AGAIN. YOU CAN'T GO BACK FOR YOUR PETS OR FAKE YOUR DEATH OR DELETE YOUR INTERNET BROWSING HISTORY.
2. IF YOU SAY YES, THE VAMPIRE WILL WHISK YOU AWAY THEN AND THERE, AND YOU WILL HAVE TO REMAIN WITH THEM FOR AT LEAST 50 YEARS.


My publicly posted response, but in sentence case:

Had to wait for other people to post first, afraid to be the first to reply, for fear of attempting to be silly and it reading as flippant, or killing the post itself with a wall of text... So I'll try to keep it brief and go into more depth in my own damn journal, if anyone wants the larger wall of text to climb... XD

1. Would I do it? Yes! Of course. F*&k my family and friends, etc., lol. And I'd choose Louis. First of all, although he may appear weak, he's got strength enough. He's done it successfully twice. Further proof of strength: Aren't there sporadic references throughout the VC that he takes out any extraneous fledglings or vagabonds who dare to hunt New Orleans? And particularly appealing as targets if they have the brilliant idea to seek him or Lestat out (E.G., the fledglings and others circling the church holding a comatose Lestat in MtD). Plus, "the Dark Gift is different for each of us." So Louis could be a carrier of decent latent powers.

2. But more importantly, to get Louis in the position wherein he has to override his principles, he would have to be in that tantalizing state of bewitched devotion (E.G., Armand admitted to *pushing* Louis into giving it to Madeleine, and Merrick admitted to *pushing* him into giving it to her). To be on the receiving end of Louis' devotion, whether legitimate or not, would be intoxicating. Not even Lestat gets 100% devotion from Louis. Remember the tortured scene in TotBT in which Louis wouldn't give Lestat the Dark Gift. The ONE person Louis is supposed to be the MOST LEGITIMATELY DEVOTED TO. I've brought that scene up before, so I'll refrain from beating that particular dead horse. For NOW. Keeping the corpse for later...

3. So, choosing Louis, if I wanted Super Deluxe Brat Prince©®™ powers, too, seems that those are easily acquired as long as you know how to tease His Royal Bratness properly. One can argue that Merrick doesn't even count as canon, but she only had to exist as Louis' fledgling to be given Super Deluxe Brat Prince©®™ powers. Stat-y-pants loves to give that out. Stat-y-pants is a manwhore about giving that out. I think he lusts over the ACT of giving that out.

Okay, you want some more? Need to be plied with absinthe or a thimbleful of brandywine? Have some, then go to my damn journal. http://burnadette-dpdl.dreamwidth.org/1720.html

8/11/13 Drabble Dimanche response.

Note: For some reason, the "cut" code works here in my journal and not out in the forum area... weird... but anyway. This could have been a longer fic... but rules is rules, so, having used all the prompt words, had 600 maximum words available, managed to prune it down to 570. Also, put it under a cut for space-saving purposes.

Enjoy!
