For some reason, I haven't thought to call Vampire Washington Vashington before, and it made me laugh. Anyway, Lafayette soothing Washington's ego is just about my favorite thing. I can also imagine Lafayette suggesting they just hunt whomever gave the slight. (In modern times, this is trickier, but I'm sure he's still very sincere about it!)
Saying things in a fake Count Dracula accent makes everything more fun.
Also it’s just one of the things I fixate on the most, Washington being secretly insulted that he’s not hot, hot shit anymore. Like at some point, this became peak male attractiveness:
And like, Washington, looking like a hard-lived 45 year old with LONG HAIR must have seem pretty damn uncool for quite a long time. Lafayette had to do a lot of ego repair.
