So, after @3andastra3 once mentioned how Tanz der Vampire was a bit similar to Beauty and the Beast in terms of love triangles and the beastie castle owner, I kept imagining the Beauty and the Beast songs playing in the Tanz setting…the results were…uhm…well…
Knoblauch/Be Our Guest
Chagal: “Be our guests, be our guests, put our service to the test! Rub some vodka ‘round your nose, my friends, the warmth will do the rest. Garlic soup, garlic bread, after that a nice warm bed. Have a bath, it’s got hot water, don’t believe me? Ask my daughter (actually, don’t. I’ll rip your head off if you glance at her).
Nie geseh’n/There’s Something There
Alfred: “There’s something there…the way she smiles. I never thought to see a girl like that for miles. Who would have thought, that in this shack, I’d think ‘For now I say I don’t want to go back.’?”
Abronsius: “No one’s smarter than me! No one sees more than me! Who would travel at such an age other than me? For there’s no one else quite as determined!”
Alfred: “Perfect, a pure paragon!”
Abronsius: “You can ask dear old doctor Van Helsing, and he’ll tell you which team he’d prefer to be on!”
Draußen ist Freiheit/Belle (Reprise):
Sarah: “I want adventure in the great wide somewhere! This invitation sets me free. And for once I feel some hope that I can reach a wider scope…*to Alfred* Be kind and get my sponge and sope.”
Totale Finsternis/Beauty and the Beast:
Herbert *Watching Krolock and Sarah in the Gallery*: “Tale that never ends. Every year’s the same. Not even eighteen years, but gives him both her ears, Gosh, I am so bored. Just a little snack, not even a new dress, tale that never ends, My father’s brood extends…and I am here, ignored.”
Die unstillbare Gier/Evermore
Krolock: “My immortal greed endeavours, carries me through endless years! My human sense is vanquished, nothing’s left, not even dried up tears. Wasting in my lonely castle, waiting for a pointless end. I know this end will never come, and as humanity gets numb, our coming’s signalled by dark drums, praying to an endless greed!
Your art and animatics gave been such an inspiration to me, and I was gonna post this on my art blog and tag you but I didn’t know if you would see it, but this is for you and your amazing work. I know most of us only know you from behind a screen, but you have touched and improved so many people’s lives, even if it’s as simple as providing a laugh when life sucks, and I wish this art could be enough to show my appreciation that you’re here.
Oh my goodness, this is so sweet I’m almost in tears.. Really, a simple message/text of appreciation is more than enough, but the fact that you took the time and effort to create this is just so touching <333 Tank you so much for this, you have no idea how much I love this ;-;
Once you get this, you have to say five things you like about yourself, publicly. Then you have to send this to ten of your favourite followers (non-negotiable, positivity is cool~) 🌈🌈
I was also sent this by @jadedbirch - thanks, you two, for thinking of me ♥ I’ll bite, because my self-esteem has been questionable lately. And this is nice.
1.) My uncontrollable enthusiasm. I sometimes think of this as a negative quality, but I shouldn’t. Were it not for my enthusiasm, my life wouldn’t be as rich as it is. One time, @crucifythenburn said to me, “You’re extra. And there is NOTHING wrong with that. … You can’t tone yourself down for other people. You just can’t. Watering yourself down to be palatable to others is death,” and it was exactly what I needed to hear in that moment and something I’ve held onto closely ever since. I’m extra, and that’s why sometimes my comments on fic are longer than the fics themselves, and that’s just who I am, and I’ve learned to love that.
2.) My sense of humor/wit. Which I get from my dad. I love making people laugh and I’m good at it. The downside is that I can’t… turn it off, lol.
3.) My speaking voice. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on it throughout my life.
4.) I’m a good judge of character. This has caused me to have very, very few toxic, unhealthy, or otherwise unpleasant relationships in my life. When I meet someone, I just… know, and truthfully, I’m never wrong or surprised later on.
5.) My… support skills? I’m not a leader, but I am the best damn follower in the world, lol. Being there, and being what people need, making things easier for others or propping them up… I genuinely love that role and I think I’m good at it.
