was original going to be a role play game for our LJ community
"vandracula" started by my dear friend "gabrielsangel". The
two of us soon decided to write a joint fanfic instead though and

stood in a corner of the large room, looking around at the large
group of people who had gathered here. She twisted a strand of her
blonde hair in her fingers and wondered if she should be here. It had
been a very strange day for her so far. All of the members of the
vandracula group on her LJ had recived a very strange invitation
(admit one only, of course, isn't that always the way it is) to come
to a gathering in an old palace in Transylvania. The gathering was
going to be held by a very mysterious man, who had favored the movie
greatly. It was for Dracula fans only and she could see why very
fast. Most of the girls had come dressed as vampires, Dracula's
brides or even Dracula himself. All Arene had done was worn her Van
Helsing hat, which wasn't exactly helpful.
"Well.... at least
I'm noticable," she had told herself.
It had been a very nice
day though, the girls had introduced themselves as their LJ names and
old friends could finally meet. It was really kind of like a college
reunion... without the college. Arene pulled away from her corner and
began to walk through the crowd. She introduced herself as
gabrielsangel and quickly met some of her friends. It felt really
nice; like meeting members of her family.
The palace, though old,
was extremely beautiful. This guy had gone all out! It actually
looked like the ballroom from "Van Helsing", with food, dancing
and beautiful costumes. It was fantastic.
Suddenly a very small,
rat-like man appeared onstage. Everyone looked up at him. Arene moved
closer to the stage, getting in the front row, she wanted to know
what this was all about. No man held a party this big without a
"Dearest ladies." The man began in a voice Arene
swore she knew, "I am pleased to introduce my master and your

It was, in person, Count Vladislaus Dracula.

him. Count Vladislaus Dragulia. All her dreams had come true. She
felt a sudden urge to rush forward to him but controlled it. Then she
saw his eyes move over her. It was as if he had known her desire. "Of
course he does, fool," she told herself, "he can read your

gripped tighter to her neighbour's arm to stop herself from
falling. He continued his inspection of the group and as he looked
away from her Nicola recovered.

again and something inside began to warn her.

"No, Kidding!" another girl
standing beside them whispered. "The man of our dreams invited
us here, he happens to be the sexiest man on the planet.... maybe
he'll even invite us to spend the night!" she squealed.

Before Nicola could ask, Arene slowly made her way
through the sea of girls (they had parted so Dracula could make his
way through them, almost like the red sea) until she saw Dracula
clearly and stepped out behind him. Dracula turned around and his
eyes locked with hers. The girls all began to sweat, what was he
