Okay, but remember the prison au for NATM? Imagine Capoleon for it. Al's the head security guard who protects Nippy, they bond over good food and bitching over the shit they have to eat in the prison. Al sneaks Nippy milanos and good food after lights out.

oh my god??? That’s so cute???

Like, can you imagine how their relationship would progress in that situation, how much trouble Al would get in if someone found out he was kinda sorta fucking one of the prisoners oops. 

Bonus points if the other exhibits inmates know all about it and try to help them out.

please can you explain to me the rice and vampire thing? i've never heard of that before :)

yeah! back in the day, people believed that throwing a handful of rice (or salt or sugar or pebbles– anything composed of very small pieces) on the ground would compel the vampire to stop and count all the grains (or granules or pebbles). this would then give you time to run away!

this idea also applied to a lot of different magical beings– just like garlic was thought to ward off evil and wasn’t a vampire-specific thing. 

a lot of modern stories leave this part of the mythos out, probably because being foiled by rice on the ground isn’t quite as badass. probably also the reason most modern vampires have no problem crossing running water. :P

anonymous asked:

are you feeling the vampire vibe coming from laura in the new promo pics or is it just me (also what are your thoughts on vamp!laura?)

Whatever the vibe is coming from Laura in the new promo pics, I’m absolutely in love with it because HOT DAMN SHE LOOKS GOOD!

And I’m totally down for vamp!Laura if that’s what Laura wants. :) I’m a hardcore Hollstein shipper so whatever lets her and Carm be together in a way where one of them doesn’t have to watch the other grow old and die while the other stays young and alive forever is cool with me. That means that vamp!Laura would become a thing or Carm would get turned back into a human. (It’s possible in certain vampire mythos like The Vampire Diaries, so you never know.) Though I’m more a fan of them both being vamps forever. Even if it would mean they’d lose their friends eventually. :( Maybe human Carm isn’t such a bad idea. And the show could end with Laura still human and an open-ending where you just assume they all live happily ever after and I’m cool with that too.

If you think about it though, it makes perfect sense that S0m3thing R0tt3n! has created a traditional fandom the likes of which has never been seen before for a musical because it hits all of the traditional fandom points. It’s got:

  • Has roots in a pre-existing mythos to draw from.
  • Actors are accessible people who make regular public appearances.
  • Relatively simple, easily digestible material that panders to a fan base.
  • Conventionally attractive white men.
  • Homoerotic tension.
  • Token “empowered” female.
  • Memetic lines.
  • Reference jokes.

↳ Hannibal Lecter as Hades, God of the Underworld

“You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ‘em that God’s gonna cut 'em down”
