1) Your username and why you picked it. It's my name, but don't ask me why I chose to use my real name on LJ. I don't anywhere else. Dang aliens abducted mah brain again, Momma. Yup.
2) Gender? Female. I was going to say "femme fatale" to be clever, but then I remembered I'm about as "fatale" as a fence post.
3) Age?
24.
4) Blood Type? O+
5) Why are you a Dracula fan? I've been a fan of vampire lore ever since before I really understood what a vampire was. The various interpretations of Dracula made me realize that I wasn't crazy in the head - the character was sensual AND frightening and those concepts weren't mutually exclusive! Who knew?
6) The Best Vampire Film You’ve Ever Seen? The 1922 silent Nosferatu. Scares the behemoth out of me because it's so wildly unnerving. A close second would be Shadow Of The Vampire.
7) The Worst Vampire Film You’ve Ever Seen? Don't get me started on Van Helsing! Granted, Richard Roxburgh is fine for the eyes, but the movie itself was utter tripe. As was Dracula 2000. I think the only thing that separated the latter from an episode of the Power Rangers was the eye candy that is Gerard Butler.
8) Favorite Flavor of Ice Cream?  Cold Stone Creamery's (I always want to say Stone Cold Steve Austin Creamery...don't you?) "Birthday Cake" ice cream is probably laced with some kind of mind control agent. It's that good, and I just don't know how it's possible if it isn't nefarious.
9) Random Fact About Yourself? I can sing "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt" backwards *and* I have my own web design business. I'm a bargain, I tell ya! ;)

Nice post.......

the blood type comment was a nice touch:)

I've been in this community and I haven't seen your icon around much. Is this one of your first posts?? If it is, I just wanted to say 'Hi'. I'm 35 and a HUUUGE Dracula fan (since the mid-80s). Here's a list of my fav pro authors http://www.livejournal.com/users/dracschick/12978.html

My other interests including Phantom of the Opera (I cross it with Dracula and write them as vampires) and the anime/manga Hellsing.

Feel free to read my LJ, fanfic http://www.fanfiction.net/u/397630/ and friend me if you think we share similar interests. I am always looking for more Dracula LJ friends:)

Take care,
Dracschick

Welcome! And yes, Roxburgh is a fox but I think he was sadly miscast for the part of Dracula.

1) Your username and why you picked it: For the love of steampunk!
2) Gender? Male
3) Age? 21
4) Blood Type? Never bothered to check.
5) Why are you a Dracula fan? Dracula is cool, not like so many would be vampires who think they are cool. Such over acting should not be tolerated!
6) The Best Vampire Film You’ve Ever Seen? I really like Bram Stoker's Dracula, though I'd really like to direct a stage performance based directly on the book, I'm sure there's a script out there.
7) The Worst Vampire Film You’ve Ever Seen? From Dusk Till Dawn Trilogy, see number 5.
8) Favorite Flavor of Ice Cream? Depends on what Ben and Jerry's is in stock at Wallyworld.
9) Random Fact About Yourself? My favorite version of Dracula is the Castlevania variant.
