my favorite thing about carmilla essentially being a 300-year-old scholar is just the idea of how much she knows.
lthere’s carmilla the multilingual expert, who learned ancient sumerian because she was bored. there’s carmilla the philosopher (i especially love carmilla as an existentialist, specifically), who has plenty of time to kill contemplating the nature of human existence and mortal humans’ interpretations of it. carmilla the artist - “not him, he’s a poet!” carmilla the world traveler, from paris to saigon and anywhere in between - so many different cultures and different people and cities, all changing over the centuries. carmilla the not-quite-activist, who maybe never took a huge part in facilitating social change but has followed its trajectory over time, from the first inceptions of feminism or gay rights to where those movements are today (and she’s familiar enough with them to criticize where they’re lacking).
like, she’s just this giant nerd at heart, and it seems so backwards that it’s because she was turned into a vampire that she ever had the opportunity to learn and experience so much when it feels like it should just be part of who she is. i love it i love her i love my nerd vampire baby
I do not know who Manuel is but thanks to u i already luv him (pls tell me who he is...?)
welcome to the manuel lago crash course.
there he is!
Manuel Lago was Barry’s college best friend/roommate (wink) who joined the CIA after his father was indirectly killed in a terrorist attack. The CIA experimented on him and gave him the power to regenerate/heal from any injury. After he got his powers he went rogue and went after the terrorist organization that killed his father (called Basilisk) himself, trying to take them down once and for all. However, they caught and subdued him. Sure that he wasn’t working alone, they tortured him, cutting off his fingers and hands even as they grew back.
However, from the discarded hands and fingers, clones of Manuel started to grow. When there were enough of them, they attacked Basilisk and saved their father/maker.
And then they started to die in the order that they had been created. Desperate to find a cure, they turned to Manuel, but he ran out of fear-all the way back to Central City. His clones chased him, till trying to find a cure, before finding a potential one in Dr. Darwin Elias’…gene recoder i think? idk
anyways. tl;dr: Manuel Lago is an ex-CIA agent who was Barry’s college roommate, he’s very in love w/ Barry and when he thought barry was dead he cried and tried to fight back against his clones, and he’s a dorky sweet dude whose clones just want to stay alive, please.
An anon from a while ago said they thought Alicia would be good at cards and Elyza was like "well shit" when she saw her deal/shuffle. That could lead into Elyza stuffing cards up her sleeves during strip poker, but Alicia knows her shit/knows she's cheating. Alicia loses on purpose and is down to her underwear and then just plays Elyza and gets her down to nothing really quick and E is just baffled and smug Alicia is all "You really shouldn't cheat w/ some1 who knows what they're doing."
