the london lounge


Some Angelus aesthetics and garb. Even the mannerisms and postures match him, I think. Each image matches a scene from the story. They are not in chronological order of events:

First image: when he’s in the bedroom of the first home where he, Dru, and Spike resided in in London;
Second: lounging in the parlour after Liz and Maurizio leave, leaving Spike, Dru, and him alone;
Third: at Pierre’s party. Dru is taking him away for a dance;
Fourth: Angelus leaving that night to return to the manor;
Fifth: family night out with Liz and Spike- this is when the boys watch her kill a man;
Sixth: Angelus waiting in the vestibule for the rest of his crew so they can leave for the party;
Seventh: A scene that’s yet to happen in one of the future chapters (sneak peek!)

But Rome had always been the dream.”
