[Dracula is sitting at his desk, which has a substantial pile of library books and papers on it. The candles are all lit and the fire stoked, giving a good view of him. He is in his shirtsleeves and a smart dark blue vest in very subtle brocade. His expression is fairly pleasant, and his eyes, once vacant, now sparkle with curiosity and liveliness.]

When he left a friend of mine bequeathed me with a substantial portion of his motion picture collection. Of course, they involved a number of vampire movies, most of which are quite amusing. These, however, I have not seen yet. [He picks up a jewel case marked MST3K]. And apparently they are very amusing indeed.

Besides making the collection available for Movie Nights, I was wondering if anyone would like to join me for a viewing in the eighth floor common room once the proper arrangements are made?

Oh, and hello to any newcomers. I am Count Vladislaus Dracula...although chances are that I am not the man whom you associate with that name.

I've been quite well. On holiday, for all intents and purposes. I've missed your Romanian songs.

[Grin, applause.]

Wonderful as ever.

It can be a very rewarding path. Not without its hazards, but there is much to be experienced if you have the wherewithal.

And it pleases me, you know, to hear you talking about graduation in terms of "when".

[In a voice holding much disdain.] Are you associated with Vampirella?

Date: 2012-06-09 01:57 am (UTC)
death_becomes: (Pissed the fuck off)
From: [personal profile] death_becomes
Yes, she is a vile and loathsome wench.

death_becomes: (Seductive)
From: [personal profile] death_becomes
Yes. Though possessing the same Sire, I suspect you are not the Count I am most familiar with. If I do say so, I find you much more becoming on the eyes, my Lord.

[Oh, Lady D likes this one very much.]

Where exactly are you, my Lord? Not terribly far, I hope?

[Her expression goes sour and she says with distaste:] Yes, I myself am familiar with less than desirable others. My bane would be Lady Demon.

From: [personal profile] death_becomes
Vlad, then. A pleasure.

Unfortunately, my twin is within myself. A demon conjured forth for Lucifer's pleasures and ill-doing.

death_becomes: (Uncertain | Curious)
From: [personal profile] death_becomes
However shall you be accomplishing that?

[Lady Death wants to know more, her look that of someone very much intrigued, but before she can ask the how's and what's, the transmission cuts to white static before simply fading to black.]

Siri, who made the first vampire a vampire?

frickinbaretta: (- don't ask me why -)
From: [personal profile] frickinbaretta
Glad you liked what you saw; I mean, I know most of 'em are kinda crap, but. That's why they're good sometimes, you know?

[Pause. Right. Greeting first might have been better.]

Hey, man.

Date: 2012-06-09 11:48 am (UTC)
frickinbaretta: (explanation)
From: [personal profile] frickinbaretta
...and then you get Plan 9, which is just fun 'cause it's so fucking terrible. But yeah, I mean...that guy? Classic. The Hollywood version never woulda been half as decent without him.

[A shrug.] Alright, I guess. [It's complicated.] You look like you're doing fan-fucking-tastic though.

Date: 2012-06-10 11:48 am (UTC)
frickinbaretta: (slow down there cowboy)
From: [personal profile] frickinbaretta
Well it's Hollywood, they're pretty into making things more serious than they should be.

Glad to hear it, man. That's...you deserve that, shit you've been through. You've welcome to visit whenever you want, although...couldn't tell you how good company I'd be, shit kinda got all kinds of fucked up 'cause I left. Might not remember you. I mean...don't let that stop you or anything, we'd get along just fine either way, but...Just thought you should know.

[Don't ask him how he's here now and remembers everything, he couldn't really tell you. Barge weirdness.]

[Ultrasonic clicks, and then a string of similarly-pitched chatter that has a definite lingual component to it. A moment later, the translator at the large bat's neck outputs, cheerfully:]

Hello, Count. You are in our communications feed! Quite unexpected. But with winds from the equator even catchbirds are fed.

[This last said as if it is a common idiom. None of her colleagues know if she's cryptic intentionally or if it's just a translator glitch.]

[Delightful! So few hominids appreciate what it means to rest right side up.]

It is our second, this ship, our engineering staff are not pleased. But I can possibly be persuaded to allow this unruly network traffic. I can be bribed, ask Chief Stildyne.

[She sounds cheerful enough about this that any implied censure is probably ironic. Irony being the mother tongue of Ragnarok, after all.]

I am Second Officer of JFS Ragnarok, and my name is [a series of ultrasonic tones that don't translate at all]. But by hominids called 'Two'. You are not a standard hominid, I think? Most I know go red in the facial membranes when they hang for long.

He has spoken? I am pleased. Unless there was censure. Then it is all false. I am a much put-upon old woman.

[If you can trust the translator-- or hear the superaudible range-- she sounds very playful.]

I do not the medical complexities grasp. But you are excellent company. You have excellent manners. [She unfurls her wing-- vast, to support a slightly-under-human sized bulk in the middle, and taps a key with her wing-knuckles, pulling a few files that play out as low-volume ultrasonic; informational.] Do you fly as well as hang?

No wings? [A touch of grandmotherly scandalization.] How do you catch thermals, it is ridiculous. Very silly.

[One of her dark, unfocused eyes blinks alone. It may be a wink. She may have had an itch.]

Date: 2012-06-10 04:01 pm (UTC)
bat_hug: (Ohai)
From: [personal profile] bat_hug
[There's a modulated ultrasonic shrill, her tongue coming out to rasp along her white teeth, but the translator can't make anything out of laughter.]

Yes yes. Come visit; we have deep caves, room for guests. I have many grandchildren. They are young and know where the thermals have shifted. The will show you to play.

[You're adorable, right-side-up no-winged hominid! You should certainly visit.]

[A chitter of pleasure.] Splendid. Delightful. Our Chief is useful after all, he has run off, he still has his uses.

[She sounds absolutely friendly about it.]

bat_hug: (Default)
From: [personal profile] bat_hug
Has he not said? Shocking. Not to be borne. Secretive. We have parted ways with our Chief before he came away to your untidy ship. He is missed. Do not tell him so. It will go to his head.

You must visit. In time perhaps also I will? Are there juicy thermals, this is the question.

Date: 2012-06-12 04:22 am (UTC)
bat_hug: (Default)
From: [personal profile] bat_hug
Splendid. Send word.

The chief hasn't got a Cousin. The Cousin will get us a message.

[She trills approvingly at him.]

Two away.

[Oh, god, Vladislaus. I hope you enjoy the guy in the costume store cape speaking in the really hideous faux Romanian accent.]

How ridiculous. Why, there is only one Count Vladislaus Dracula and you are not him.
