Also, interesting note on Lucy’s condition. Stoker is actually subverting what was a common trope in that time period.
It was a common for characters in novels to fall ill, often from tuberculosis, which had similar symptoms as what Lucy is experiencing- paleness, loss of energy, difficulty breathing. A victorian reader would quickly recognise these symptoms, and the trope they are suggesting.
But in this case, nope, it’s not that rascally consumption this time, Lucy’s got a case of the vampires, lads.
#Dracula #vampires #puns #anything that makes me laugh this much deserves a reblog #illness tw #this probably deserves some other warning tag but I am not sure what
