Lestat the interviewer  
This community could use some fresh blood. Pun intended.

I always imagine how Lestat might have interviewed the other vamps. Did they give in willingly? Did he have to bribe them? What bargains were made if any, and what sensitive information had to be excluded? Did he have them write down a memoir and hand it to him for editing? Or did he sit down and have them regurgitate their thoughts in a stream of consciousness format, mentally bookmark what he found noteworthy and fashion it into a novel?

I'm re-reading parts of Pandora here and there, and I noted that she describes how David came forward to interview her. The thoughts going through his head and hers. Too bad Mater hadn't included this in any of the main VC novels (at least not that I recall...)

I've no idea how he got them to spill really, but it's interesting and kind of telling that Louis and Armand are conspicuously absent. (Yes it is telling, it's not just Anne being tired of Louis, stfu-- *denial*)
I wonder why that is. I mean. Okay. Armand would probably rather die than tell Lestat anything, and any attempt of Lestat's to read his mind would only end in bloodshed.XD Louis though?

But I'm not sure if the whole 'Lestat got this info and wrote it down' format is really viable. It's been awhile but Baby Jenks is in QotD, isn't she? And I don't think they ever met..? Oo

it's possible that Baby Jenks is a fictional 'generic young fledgling character' invented by Lestat to put a bit of sex, drugs and urban grit among all those pompous philosophy-reading dusty vamps...

Could be. I'm just confused by the fact that Laurent shows up out of the blue, it doesn't seem to have a point if Lestat just made it up.

Lestat doesn't ever ask Armand and Louis about their time together because he's afraid of what they might say about their sexytimes.>D Trufax.

Also he figures he will get revenge by not giving them a voice in his books and hoarding the spotlight.XD

...Laurent was the most random thing in the history of ever.

...ahem. Sorry. End spaz. But I like this theory. |D

And yes, at least with Louis I'd say that sounds pretty true. He didn't like that book a lot, did he.

*nod* He was. I liked him a bit tho. Just a pity he went boom.

No, he didn't. But really tho, he's just jelly because Louis's is the Original Vampire Autobiography. The conventional bourgeois pig got there before the big bad rebel, what what.

Yeah... but well. He was all like "Bonjour, I'm pretty and snarky and here just to validate Lestat's rambling memories of how he totally ruled the theatre and we all loved him.":/

Lol! Yeah. And of course the first book will always seem more credible, so no matter how much he rants about Louis lurving him he'll just sound petulant and offended. :D

Yes. -.- But it would have been interesting to hear a little more about him. If he'd had a personality, that is.

Exactly. U_U It's uncanny. After all,
I have more wit to fare better in my little finger than you in your entire frame.

Meh. I suppose his purpose in life is for Lestat to be able to say "LOOK ARMAND your minions like me better-- u mad? Trollolol."XD
Duck: Grimshaw streetnevermore_1106 on January 13th, 2011 12:22 am (UTC)
Précisement. I mean. He gets dissed on by someone who lived underground. For being illiterate. XD

I am not amused by these shenanigans. .__.

You totes need an 'Armand is not amused' pic.*nodnod*

...lol alternatively, a 'the prostitutes are so tired of this shit' one.

I do.

*nod* ..Yes. Ca va sans dire.
