Stumbling Upon a Different World

askthebratprince:

"You did not know what I was. See, there you go basing your idea of trust on someone’s species alone. Not all Vampires constantly have ill intent on their mind. Besides, I didn’t even know your lot had passed into this world. I don’t exactly pay attention to the news." He…

"What a kind gesture, Haldir. I do thank you for the words. And you’re welcome. It was the very least I could do. After all, it is my fault that you’ve been pulled from your home, is it not?" He smiled then. Indeed, Lestat could have just left him to fend for him self, but that would make him just as bad as his reputation made him out to be. He was bad. Emphasis on the "was" part of that particular phrase. In light of recent events, he was trying very hard to lead a better existence, without changing himself entirely. He could still be Lestat, but he could also be better.  Helping this Elf was one of his first steps in that direction.

"It is water under the bridge now, Haldir. You’re forgiven." Lestat was oddly comforted by the fact that someone was apologizing to him this time, rather than the other way around. "And I will try not to respond with rude snark, but if there is one thing you will learn about me…." He looked over at him with a friendly smirk. "I’m rather a grouch without my sass….come, we’re almost to town."

Around 30 minutes later, they arrived at their destination: a historic hotel near the downtown area. It was large and old. A large portion of brick on one of the outer walls looked scorched, the iron bars over many of the windows were rusted and chipping, and the pillars near the main entrance were no longer their pristine white, but a dulling cream color. “Well, this is it. I know it doesn’t look like much, but it’s owned by a human whose family is familiar with my kind, and they have kept the secret for years. They should have a room to suit my….needs.”

◢ Lestat’s Diagnosis (Continued)

In doing further research, I’d like to add on that it is also extremely likely that Lestat has Histrionic Personality Disorder, which is often co-morbid with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. 

Histrionic Personality Disorder is characterized by shallow and labile affectivity, self-dramatization, theatricality, exaggerated expression of emotions, suggestibility, egocentricity, self-indulgence, lack of consideration for others, easily hurt feelings, and continuous seeking for appreciation, excitement and attention.

An individual diagnosed with histrionic personality disorder needs to show at least 5 of the following criteria:

    • Is uncomfortable in situations in which he or she is not the center of attention.
    • Interaction with others is often characterized by inappropriate sexually seductive or provocative behavior.
    • Displays rapidly shifting and shallow expression of emotions.
    • Consistently uses physical appearance to draw attention to self.
    • Has a style of speech that is excessively impressionistic and lacking in detail.
    • Shows self-dramatization, theatricality, and exaggerated expression of emotion.
    • Is suggestible, i.e., easily influenced by others or circumstances.
    • Considers relationships to be more intimate than they actually are.

I hope my followers found this to be informative.

◢ Lestat’s Diagnosis

I had a discussion with my Abnormal Psychology teacher the other day about diagnosing book characters with Psychological Disorders. We got on to the topic of Lestat, as she is rather fond of the Brat Price herself. In class this week, we were discussing Personality Disorders, and we decided that Lestat has Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

According to the DSM-5, an individual diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder needs to show at least 5 of the following criteria:

  • Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements).
  • Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.
  • Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions).
  • Requires excessive admiration.
  • Has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations.
  • Is inter-personally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends.
  • Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others.
  • Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her.
  • Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.

In addition, Narcissistic Personality Disorder is also co-morbid with other Psychological disorders, like Depressive Disorders or another Personality Disorder that is part of the Antagonistic Cluster (Narcissistic, Antisocial, Histrionic, or Borderline).

Now, Lestat shows well over 5 of the aforementioned criteria. Furthermore, he’s experienced several bouts of major depression over the course of his immortality. If it were my guess, I think he might prone to singular Major Depressive episodes, but I’ll have to review the diagnostic material on that to be sure. 

In any case, I hope you found this informative and entertaining. Perhaps you learned something about dear old Lestat.

◢ Unexpected Reunion

dogmaticcrescendo:

"There’s really no limit to what you would do.” He kept holding Lestat’s hand as they walked, looking around at the changing street scenery. Some small part of him still held a fondness for dingy surroundings. This place had all the grime of Paris, but had replaced public executions with electronic displays of vulgar wealth. The new bourgeois wandered about with glasses that gave them the appearance of insects, clutching coffee in ‘post consumer content’ and tapping out their every insipid thought for broadcast from their mobile devices. 

"A dog? Well it looks like your taste in company hasn’t changed."

"Depends on what that something is. Some aspects of my behavior are limitless. Ah, but you know that well." The blonde said nothing for a time after that, letting the both of them enjoy their walk in silence. Lestat lived in a home on Madison Street was actually far too large for him, but he enjoyed it all the same. It had three too many bedrooms for just one person, a courtyard, and a kitchen he didn’t use, save for the sink and fridge. It would be nice to finally have some company. The last person who entered the home outside of himself was one of those storm shutter companies, who had installed an electronic shutter system that Lestat could control with a simple code to make the upstairs part of the home light tight in the daylight hours, and that had been months ago.

"I imagine that you are poking fun at me, Nicki, but it’s a true statement. I get along with dogs. They are great company; loyal, dependable, and loving." Everything Lestat was not. Perhaps that was why the blonde loved dogs so much. "His name is Jasper. He’s a Sarloos Wolfhound." Finally they approached his home, as Lestat was fishing his keys from his pocket. "Well, here we are."

◢ † LET US PRAY †

lestattheonetruepope:

In the name of Myself,
my vanity, and my power to seduce all genders
W E   P R A Y …

OH Lestat,
Father of lies
Hallowed be thine Fandom
Thy Book is done, and it will come
In October, a day after the Twenty Seventh
Give us this day, our daily OTP moment
And forgive us for the crackships
As we forgive those
Who sayeth untrue things about us
and Lead us not into Akasha (or crazies)
But deliver us from Hate Anons.
Ann Rice.
