Okay, Jesse, are you ready?

Crud, there's Drac and Claudia... she's mesmerized...

She is *DENSE*! If he was destroyed, then he had not seen Lugosi's performance. Stupid, stupid, stupid bimbo... I know from other sources that he probably has seen the classic film. But now she's gonna get vamped unless Jesse saves her...

Ahh, NOW she see's how bad Drac really is... Can you grab the stake and use it on Drac, save yourself, save Jesse?

Dang! She fell in *LOVE* with Jesse in just TWO MINUTES? Holy jumping up and down Martha! Go, Claudia, go!

Love can hurt him? Fascinatingly awesome!

YES! Love helped Jesse, and he did it! Hot diggety dog!

WHOA! Awesome! I can't believe it-that's too, too cool! Love and selflessness saved the day, and unvamped Jesse! Beyond awesome!

Yay! He's hungry...for real food! :)

Cool, they are going to have a happy life together; they'll go to his Montana hideaway, but probably go back to Kirksville...

Awesome story, loved it! Five stars!

Ready for another one... :)

Yay! Time for chapter 4!

So...Roarke didn't expect the Count? Hmm, interesting...

Yah...figures... She wants to BE vamped... moron...poor Jesse...

Hmm... how will their fantasies be resolved? Fascinating...

Well... hmm... perhaps... Jesse could vamp her, make her drink animal blood... and then they both get cured?

So, that count's own kind has to deliver the blow ... ? Then vamp Claudia and let her stake you...

Oh, interesting-Roarke wants Jesse to destroy Dracula? Awesome!

Yes, Claudia will have to learn her lesson tonight-or never. And that's right-Jesse must be resolved to destroy Dracula to make it work.

Hahahahah! Roarke GRINNED at Christian! That would have been so dang funny to see in person... But it is good to see Christian so protective of his beloved.

Heheheh... Poor Christian... all stressed out. Well, they'll probably be okay. Safe at the Main House, while Roarke, Jesse, and Claudia deal with Drac.

Great chapter, and awesome dialogue in the conversations! I could really see it all happening in my head... on to Chapter 5!

Okay, now for Chapter 3! :)

It will be very interesting to see how she meets Dracula when he was destroyed. But I wonder if Jesse knows about Dracula's soul-clones, or Drac's various revivals?

What a big crowd for the luau! Cool that Leslie and Christian showed up...

Oh, there's Jesse. I hope he can control himself... And I wonder how Christian will react..

Wow, Christian certainly reacted strongly! That was amazing! He *VERY* rarely goes off like that!

Ahh, good, Roarke showed up in the nick of time to help Leslie deal with Christian...

And... so, naturally, Jesse meets Claudia. Hooboy, excitement!

Wow...he's really going out on a limb. She might believe you, Jesse...but she might think you are nuts, or try to stake you...

OMG! It's Drac, in person!

JirouĊĦek Viharviz? Oh, must be Jesse's birth name. I hope Dracula doesn't want to harm him. Unless he wants to bite him and free him of the curse... I've heard from one source that if you are bit by the vampire that sired you, you can be changed back...

WOW! Whatta great chapter! Can't wait to read the next one...in a while, drat work...

Wow, Haruko is SEVENTEEN now? Time goes fast...

So what will happen to the triplets after she graduates, if she leaves for college?

Yay! Julianne and Adam are engaged! Yahooey!

Cool, Jonathan likes Brian's niece... excellent...

Well, Dania COULD be a marine biologist in Indiana-since there's a portion of Lake Michigan in the state...although that's pushing it... and frankly, FI is a better place to be a marine biologist...LOL

Yes, that would be a good idea to have Dania as the island's resident marine biologist. Also cool, since my oldest son is thinking about becoming a marine biologist.

Yay! A cute twiplet scene! I wuvs Tobias and the girls...

Yes, it is great that they can hold simple convos with the triplets now.

Hmm, hope everything is okay for Mr. Stormwater.

Hmm...a child of Dracula, eh? Fascinating...

Oh, childe! Gotcha, Drac sired him.

Yes, definitely surrounded by groupies. I see it everyday at the library...sheesh...lol

Poor Jesse. I hope Roarke can cure him! And I bet he has resorted to drinking animal blood. A number of vampires have done that...

Great chapter!

Wow, she's from Kirksville? Cool.

Wuh-oh! What a fantasy! Could be doubly dangerous for EVERYONE...remember the Ripper!

This gal is completely nutso! She wants to meet the Count and get his autograph? Sheesh!

So...we'll know him when we see him, eh?

How can Roarke keep everyone safe, I wonder? GULP!

Hmm, maybe she does have a hidden agenda. Like trying to stake Drac...

Whoa, ANOTHER vampire there, too?

Jesse Stormwater, Carpathian... interesting...

Cool-he wants to be unvamped? Hmm... Bloodsucker is a dirty word, huh? Fascinating.

Oh, that's right! Some vampires ARE possessed by demons. And yes, you do have to convince the demon to restore the vamp's soul.

Ahh, so vampiric demons have been met by him. Interesting...

I would have like to know what the other fantasy, that of the Smiths, is. Oh well...

Off to a fabulous and much missed start here!

Well, Jessie and Claudia broke the curse of Vlad Draucl for good. And, now that Jessie is cured I hope that the two of them can have a nice long NORMAL lifte ahead of them.

Christian you IDIOT! You act like a modern man, yet when it comes to this fantasy, you act like a OVERPROTECTIVE MOTHER! Leslie is NOT in danger in this fantasy! And you are fortunate that the triplets are not old enough to understand everything. Otherwise, you might be getting a chewing out from them as well!

*Hits alarm bells* UH OH CHONGO! The REAL Count Dracula on Fantasy Island? ANd Claudia is going with him? This spells TROUBLE! BIG TROUBLE!

So, the vampire that is visiting the island is a Childe of the Count! This is going to make it very interesting. I just wonder, could it be that the young lady has fallen in love with the notion of being a vampire and wants to become one herself? I can hardly WAIT to read the next chapter!

First off, my apologizes for not leaving you a signed review. I am having problems with not allowing me to log on. I suspect that it is a problem with one of their survers since other authors have told me the same thing.

I'm GLAD you finally decided to take a run at my suggestion! Bringing the idea of Mestistophelies in is something I never thought of. Now, lets see what this young lady REALLY WANTS!

Wow. That was a great story-I couldn't stop at just one chapter to review-too many highlights! Christian's reactions, the growing up of the triplets, Claudia's finally getting it, and Mr. Roarke putting them together to defeat the foe-just right! Thanks for the sweet ending and for the promise of another trip to the island soon!

Kind of reminds me of the episode where some sailor (think that was his professoin)loved a gal but wasn't going to ask her to die for him, but she was willing.
Dreamer1985 chapter 1 . 5/11/2012
Ten to one Mr. Roarke's right, she has a hidden agenda.
