presenting the original vampire, count motherfucking dracula. unlike other vampires i might mention, he doesn’t sparkle. he doesn’t hate werewolves, he commands them. he can shape shift into anything and change the weather. he lives with three vampire brides in his castle and wants to take over the world.
don’t mess with count dracula, he’ll bite you. in all seriousness, i’m begging you to read the original by bram stoker…it’s so damn good.

is it so wrong to want the finer things in life? emma bovary didn’t think so, in fact she thought she was entitled to them. emma was a farmer’s daughter who married his doctor, she quickly became bored with marriage and provincial life. emma was sure that by acquiring the finer things, she would be content. she was so consumed by her fascination that she ran up a riotous debt, had two affairs and eventually committed suicide. the saddest part of the whole thing is that emma thought all the fortune, the aristocracy, the opera, the parties and the fancy things would bring her happiness. she failed to realize that all of these things often bring misery and that in the end, nobody is really any better off than anybody else. when all her debts and the schemes of her jerk banker caught up to her, she swallowed some arsenic in typical emma bovary melodramatic fashion. all that said, she still is somehow likable.

catherine earnshaw was quite the tortured soul, much like all the other characters in wuthering heights. her childhood was happy enough and she formed a close relationship with her foster brother, heathcliff. the two had some good times until fate took catherine to thruscross grange. after spying on the fancy home with heathcliff, a dog attacked catherine and she stayed at the grange where she was educated on how to ‘be a lady’. this education forever changed her but heathcliff remained devoted to her. long story short, she marries a rich man (from thruscross of course), heathcliff disappears, comes back, catherine’s love for heathcliff drives her insane, she dies, haunts everybody in the world and heathcliff dies. hooray!

i think everybody wishes they were huck finn at one point, perhaps during that i’m going to runaway from everything phase we all go through. and who could blame them? he lead a rather carefree yet interesting and adventurous life. certainly he was not the type to fuss about what he was wearing which makes him a rather odd candidate for textbook, but luckily some of the spring collections showed dressing just as carefree and casual. so here’s to huck finn, an effortless adventurer. and my apologies for not doing his costume as a girl, perhaps next time!
