LUCY FROM DRACULA
LUCY FROM DRACULA?
- LUCY FROM DRACULA
WHY DIDN’T I CONSIDER THIS. THERE IS PRECEDENT FOR VAMPIRIC ATTACKS TURNING SOMEONE INTO A PARTY GIRL (or the 1890s equivalent thereof).
WHAT IF THERE IS A VAMPIRE BEHIND THE DISAPPEARANCES BUT IT’S NOT CARMILLA. WHAT IF IT’S DRACULA. SOMEHOW.
I DIDN’T THINK THEY WERE MIXING MYTHOSES (is that the correct pluralization) BUT IF THEY ARE THEN THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING.
Danny said “Normally I’m not into this sort of thing” just a little bit too quickly and defensively. Honestly, does anyone in the fandom NOT think the Summer Society is a secret league of monster-hunters at this point?
Also, is it just me, or was her reaction to “seduction eyes” kind of…off somehow? Yes, she’s protective, but look at what got her attention. Not the fact that Carmilla’s allegedly been giving Laura terrifying nightmares that cause her to go without sleep rather than experience them again. The fact that Carmilla seems to be seducing Laura.
If she cares about Laura, why wouldn’t she have been on red-alert from the beginning of the threat to Laura’s life? What suddenly lights a fire under her ass when the minor-by-comparison seduction eyes come up?
If I was going by my crack “Danny is Carmilla’s mom” theory it would make more sense; then she would be angry because Carmilla is definitely not supposed to be seducing Laura. But the only real support I have for that theory right now is that Danny is tall, and the dean is a much likelier candidate for the Countess Karnstein, Sr.
Either way, it makes me like Danny a little bit less (and no, not because I don’t ship her and Laura). It’s just…why does she only start looking for ways to eliminate a threat to Laura when threatened with competition, when Laura’s life has been- allegedly -in danger for some time now?
