Hi. I'm 21, a writer and aspiring teacher from the Bay Area. Here you'll find fangirling, rambling, and assorted miscellanea.

Fair warning, I gain a new fandom about once a month. I struggle to keep track of it myself.

Thank you all kindly and I hope you have a lovely time.

Mina and Jonathan Harker. ☠, ☯, ☮

harkerling:

☠ (drinking/drunk headcanons)

  • Jonathan is probably a more robust drinker than people would think, but he has the kind of standard effusive Victorian attitude toward social drinking as something for celebration and good company rather than grief-drinking (which is probably good for him). 
  • Mina has a secret archive of carefully curated recipes for different kinds of punch and things that she probably inherited at least some of and she fully intends to make all of them some day. 

☯ (genderbent headcanons)

  • Do you know how excited fem!Jonathan is to learn how to use a typewriter? Very. Very, very excited. Her handwriting is really small and she writes so much vaguely sentimental poetry about dead relatives. 
  • dude!Mina might be preparing for clergy stuff, but the intricacies of who can marry and who’s celibate in Church of England stuff, especially in the 19th century, is completely baffling to me so I don’t know how that would work out. Mina’s the more progressive of the two of them, though introspective about this, so at any rate he’d be a very progressive cleric. 

☮ (bedroom/living space headcanon) 

  • Jonathan has the more romantic interior design sense out of the two of them — the whole thing about sighing medieval ladies writing letters, what a nerd! — and I think if he felt he were allowed he would tack up postcards and scarves and things.
  • Mina’s wardrobe isn’t very big and it’s really well organized but she keeps saving the boxes that hats and shoes come in under the persistent misbelief that she needs them for storage and nope her storage spaces are all full of empty boxes (maybe she can make a craft project? who knows)

NEVER trust an adult who won’t apologize to a child

Wow. I’d never seen it put that way, but. Wow. That is a really good piece of advice.

Dracula the book on Lucy: She’s a kindhearted, empathetic, playful young woman who is eager to learn and full of energy. She loves her best friend, Mina, not letting class differences get between them. She has deep feelings of friendship for three men who all love her. Even though she knows she’s in love with Arthur, she hates the idea of breaking any of their hearts and wishes she didn’t have to turn down any of them.

Francis Ford Coppola: LUCY’S A HUGE SLUT. SHE WANTS TO FUCK ALL THE GUYS. ALL SHE THINKS ABOUT AND TALKS ABOUT IS SEX. BUT THAT MAKES HER A LIBERATED WOMAN. YOU GO GIRL. SHOW US YOUR TITTIES.

I just noticed that Harker’s last set of diary entries before the epilogue end the same way as his first set of entries in the prologue: with a goodbye to Mina in the event that everything goes wrong.

"Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark."
