DTS11- Blind Date III by HeroesDaughter DTS11- Blind Date III by HeroesDaughter
So it was Mina after all. Not a surprise, uh?
My… I’m glad she did that. Vlad insisted on straightening his hair for this one but I like the sharp waves of his hair better. Now I can draw them on the next page.

And Victor is showing us a bit of what kind of boyfriend material he is made off… I guess he’s too goody for his own good (especially given the fail-field fact, v.g. [link] ). But it is nice for a change; there are way too many manipulative psychos around.


Well...
What will Mina and Vlad do now? Will Victor manage to have his date? Will the stain come out from such an expensive suit? Find it on the next issue: Blind Date IV! (end of the arc if my paneling works)

Oh! And you’ll get a little DTS bonus on the next post to made up for the wait and as a little late Christmas present ;P .

Enjoy!

*giggles* Trying to make Mr. T. jealous, has absolutely no sense of personal space, and often loses her train of thought. Have fun, Vic-tor.

Viccy and Vladdy. Hehe. Viccy and Vladdy. Makes me smile.

That's good. You can't put two people this dangerous together without giving them a something special that makes it not creepy to watch them.

True. Otherwise, all you've got is two people who are more or less -and somewhat indirectly, in some cases- serial killers. :)

What's even more disturbing is that we probably WOULDN'T find it disturbing. Never underestimate the power of a fangirl's ability to completely handwave all the bad stuff her favorite guys do.

I make her look cute, don't I? ^^; I'm not sure if that's a good thing.

About Vlad, you know, he's a pro at those things. It takes someone like Mina to resist it... or maybe not.

Thank you for the comments!

Yeah they all have something silly about them that makes them so likable.
My fave of the people he has played is Frankenstein, Gilderoy and that guy in that shakespear movie were his character feel in love with Emma Thompsons Character. Can never for the life of me remember the english titel on it and it is a long time since I saw it.

La verdad es que no era nada inesperado, pero me gustan esos casos en que uno sabe lo que va a pasar pero no sabe del todo como van a reaccionar lo personajes.

No,no, era un Bloody Mary de lo más normalito. Pero el instinto es el instinto...

Me temo que el pobre tampoco se va a librar del efecto del Fail Field ;P .

So Mina has the power to speak in dramatic gothic font when the occasion requires it. :D Wicked.
I love Vlad's haphazard grasp on the English language. And you make Mrs Lovett look like an adorable little ditz. I'm kinda rooting for her new thing with Victor :)
Also, sweet job on that bar background.

Well, I would expect no less of someone able to stand in the League of the Extraordinary Gentlemen (comic, NOT movie) and, giving some credit to the reminiscence/reincarnation plot of the Dracula movie, she can speak Romanian at punctual times.

I have a lot of trouble writing accents in English, but his is surprisingly fun to do.

About my portrayal of Mrs. Lovett, I like it, but it’s troubling me a bit ^^; .
When I first read Mrs. Lovett I though that she was a very fragile, yet not delicate, woman behind all her practical-busy-aggressive behaviour, better said, precisely because of it. That fragility gives her a finesse -showed through her sharp, perceptive and manipulative mind- that, I thought, is the root of all the perversion in her character, making her able to twist everything to the crudest side without loosing the most sensible perception of things (I guess that the reason why I write her seeming somehow ditzy). That’s why I always thought of her as the scariest character of the story but, maybe, Turpin (who is more disturbing than scary).
Tim Burton’s version of her gave me a way more independent impression; even though she’s able to do anything to preserve her egoistic affection to Mr. Todd and works on the dreamy assumption that he will turn to her eventually, she seems less longing of him (although her whole beach song matches reaaaaally good my first impression of he character).
I first wanted draw a fully Burton inspired Lovett but my first portrayal of her is showing though quite a lot. Yet, I guess her monstrous side is more emphasised the cutest she seems.

Good to know, because I love the silly love-hate triangle they make with Sweeny.

Thank you!

I dig Mina.
I'm not giving Mrs Lovett's character much scope myself, so I've obviously not pondered her characterization as thoroughly as you. She certainly looks out for number one...
As I said, I like her here. Carry on, quoi! :)
