I Saw A Ship Come Sailing In

Post by flyboy254 »

A little preemptive topic start to kick of the next, and dare I say, final? Story arc coming up.
Vampires can be exceedingly charming when they need to be. They will joke, cajole and flatter, and just when you think, "vampires aren't so bad," you've got a pair of fangs buried in your neck.

For those who still insist on treating vampirism as a romantic existence, consider the suicide note left behind by Jacob Drexel, member of a prominent Philadelphia family who was transformed in 1937. After Drexel leaped off the City Hall tower one snowy night, a suicide note was found that closed with the following lines: "I have been living in constant torment over the unspeakable acts I have committed, and yet I am powerless to stop committing them. May God forgive me."

*gasp* Integra's Hellsing-senses are tingling! Methinks Alucard has just arrived on the scene.

The final storyline -- ohhhh no. Definitely not. Lots more fights, and deaths, and reunions, to be had before this is over.

But there will be a pretty dramatic shift in this one, so look forward to that :D

In other news there's some broken code on the Shine TVTropes page -- someone used {{s instead of [[s -- and I get an error whenever I try to open the editing page. Can anyone here fix it? Thanks much ^_^

Was it wrong that my first thought was 'you don't have the breasts to be Seras'?

A horse? A HORSE?!? I can understand the Black Hound of the Baskervilles, but now you're telling me you ate a HORSE, too? :ick:

He's eaten LOTS of things...If you look at the army of souls that comes out of his coffin in the manga you even see some of his old servants mixed in with all the warrior-types. Cooks, bakers, maids...he obviously wasn't all that picky about who he ate a few centuries back. So eating the horse along with the stableboy could happen.

Hey Erin... there's something I'm asking of you? Are you going to wimp-out... or are you going to ask Integra to command Alucard to kick Iscariot and Millennium's asses to oblivion? Please do this?

I find it interesting that in the original, Integra waits until the darkest moment to go Level Zero (i.e. Vatican slaughtering everyone on one side, Nazis doing the same on the other). Here, she has him go full release much sooner. I think it's a sign that Shine's Integra trusts Alucard a bit more to do the right thing, monster or no, since this Alucard lacks the same level of cruelty as his manga counterpart.

Look on the bright side, Luke. At least you didn't fall out of the steaming endtrails of a gutted hellhound. :twisted:

...is it wrong of me to want Luke to NOT re-die later on? :eyebrow:
