You should have Walter forge a sword for Integra and name it Alia. Or maybe Duncan.

Alexander A. Paladin
Or
AMEN! Cooking with Catholics

Enrico notices that Alex has been acting strangely lately (strange being a relative term), and when he confronts him, Alex unveils several plans on how to take care of Alucard. These plans would make a certain coyote proud, and range from a bucket of blood as bait underneath a giant stake with Alex on the cliff with scissors to drop it to shooting a rocket into the sun with big A tied to it, and not to mention dropping the vampire into a pool of holy water infested with sharks that have crosses attached to their freakin’ heads.

This being out of character even for Alexander, Enrico decides that the paladin would benefit from a non-vampire centric outlet and quickly delegates this responisiblity to the first subordinates he sees. Heinkel and Yumike/Yumi hit upon the idea to sign Alexander up for a cooking class, since he still gets to stab things with sharpened bits of metal and it would be easy enough to trick him into going, with a course title of “101 New Ways to Prepare your Steaks.”

Hilarity can ensue in many different ways:
1. Anderson yelling Amen! every time he chops up a stalk of celery
2. Anderson almost jumping the bayonet when somebody mentions an allergy to garlic (may or may not be a real vampire).
3. women coming to the class to find available men and get shot down by Anderson
4. etc

My mythological background is failing me. What are these allusions to?

Well I tried looking it up in Wikipedia. As near as I can figure Alia is referring to Alia Atreides from Dune. This would make a little bit of sense, given that Walter is a Dune fan, and she is apparently also know as St. Alia of the Knife (never read Dune myself, so I can't say for sure).

As for Duncan, I dunno, Duncan MacLeod maybe? That's the best I can come up with.

St. Alia of the Knife? Walter would definitely work that reference into a weapon =D

St. Alia of the Knife is the little sister of Paul-Muad'Dib, and a rather interesting figure in the first sequel or two to Dune.

Duncan refers to Duncan Idaho, the swordmaster who taught Paul. He died when the Harkonnen and Sardaukar attacked Arrakism, though he killed a large number of Sardaukar. To spoil a (major or minor) plot point in the later novels, he is repeatedly resurrected as a ghola by the Tleilaxu (basically a clone with the potential to regain memories of previous lives).

Or maybe Gurney Halleck, the troubadour-swordsman who was another of Paul's teachers. He was played by Patrick Stewart in the older Dune movie.

And I'm sorry for assuming you would be a fan of everything even tangentially related to Hellsing. Still, I highly recommend reading at least the original Dune novel, though the sequels get very weird and the prequels aren't very good.

Lol, that's okay - I have actually read the original novel. It's just been a while, and I never got into the sequels and prequels, because I've heard bad things like that about them ^_^;

I do try to at least know about everything tangentially related to Hellsing. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Dune + Hellsing. Wierd. All of a sudden I'm imagining what would happen if Alucard or Seras drink from a fremen with spice in his veins. It must be like a cocain milkshake to vampires.

I know your Halloween for this year is already planned out, but if you've ever read a story called "A Night in the Lonesome October" by Roger Zelazny, it would make for an interesting crossover. Dracula shows up (as 'the Count') though much of the focus is on Jack the Ripper.

Decent summary: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Night_in ... me_October


Not sure what you might want to do with it. Perhaps Jack drops by for a visit or (if it were October) comes to get help for the Closers. It could have potential and could introduce at least one other fun English character.

*goes back to forum lurking*

*puts it on call through the library system*

I'll read it and see if anything comes of it. Thanks for the recommendation.

I've been watching Trinity Blood on AS. It's given me many ideas. If only I had time to write them down.

I've also been horribly remiss with not giving you another "What's Up Doc?" Sorry. Maybe after midterms.

Trinity Blood is on my "to watch" list. It's pretty far down, unfortunately.

Regarding midterms: I feel your pain.

I was sitting at a party this weekend and listening to the inebriated banter, as I'm apt to do when everyone is too drunk for me to speak to without becoming murderous, and after reading this thread it got me thinking how Alucard or some other vampire would handle conversation with one of these lunatics.

Drunk dude: Here, have some of this, it'll MESS you up, dewwwd!

Alucard: I don't drink. I'm not even sure why I'm here.

Drunk dude: Aw, don' be a prude man, everyone drinkssshhh.

Alucard: I think you misunderstand me. I don't drink liquids.

Drunk Dude: Now yer jusht makin fun of me, you wanna THROW DOWWWN?

Alucard: Actually, I do drink ONE liquid. Step into this dark grotto and I'll show you.

It'd be so cool to have the means to silence any drunk guy who challenges you to a duel. At times like that, I wish I was Alucard.

I'd be honored- it would be the first instance of my writing in an online webcomic, unless you count the pages posted on our Japanese Club's Facebook site. I guess we're getting some hosting site for them? Maybe.

If those pages ever see the light of day, I'll be sure to shout it to the heavens with excessive exuberance.

A friend and I were talking about broadway shows. I've never had the pleasure of seeing one, but this particular girl seemed to be fond of Wicked. She described the plot to me, and it is now high on my list of things to do before I die. Basically, for the unitiated, it chronicles the tale of how the Wicked Witch of the West actually earned her title. The topic of the current story line lead me to this train of thought: it might be fun to work that into some sort of crossover. The problem is that in order for it to work it would probably have to involve either dreams or some blatantly non-canonical supernatural force.

This was just a passing thought- mostly entertaining thoughts of a Hellsing encounter with those poor flying monkeys. Stranger things have happened in the Hellsing universe, I'm almost sorry to say.

Another thought, (and I'm planning on writing my first fanfic on this)- The messiah's reaction to World War III in the comic. Basically, Jesus would return in rapture, look around a bit, then say:

"My dad is going to be so mad at you guys, I'm not even joking."

But then, this might be blatant sacrilege. I don't have a very good concept of what's in good taste as far as religious humour is concerned.

If we're going to do muscials, then "The Sound of Music" is a must. I want to see Girlycard do "I am Sixteen Going on Seventeen". (let's all sing as we escape the Nazis....)

Alucard singing "The Producers" has made me laugh lately: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bN-62huqcKA


Hellsing doing "Avenue Q" "Internet is for Porn" is pretty funny too.

"Little Shop of Horrors" would be fantastic...FEED ME SEYMORE! and I bet Alucard could do a marvelous Victor/Victoria...one of my all time favorites.
