I was watching Dracula one night last week, a little bit tipsy and a little bit sleepy, and I fell into this sort of half sleep/half daydream fantasy about the movie. The ending that played out for me that night was far, far better than the one I was suppose to be watching.
When I woke up, it was like someone had lit a fire under my ass (as my mom would say). I had a vision and I had to see it through. 24 manic hours of writing, three drafts, and two betas later, I had "my ending." And this is it:
And you know what? It makes my heart melt. :)
I've decided to call it Part 1 because there are so many places for Dracula and Mina's story to go - and because I won't rest until Van Helsing and Harker die in horrible, horrible ways!
I don't normally get a lot of comments for my writing on FanFiction.net (I've been told it's because my writing tends to be a strong "M" rating and does not appeal to the masses.) but I had the greatest comment from someone for TETSHBP1:
"My favourite of all I have read about Dracula. I love the prince and Mina, they are soul matter, the perfect couple."
And that person goes on the list of people who deserve great big, sloppy kisses from Wondra! :)
