His gray eyes sparkle like stars in the sky;
He met Akasha when he was a rock star,
They went off together, where they would fly.
He then turned against her,
He left her to her death;
He then tried to burn,
Met the man that commited body theft.
He got his body back,
He then met Memnoch,
Told Memnoch "I don't need you."
Love Song To A SlayerOh, my dear, come dance with meMore Like This
And please follow my lead
You know that I am poison
You'll drink and love the deed
I love you so, ma cherie
Although we met as foes
I am drowning in your eyes
You told me that it shows
You still resist my beauty
You taunt me with your light
Won't you succumb, my darling?
I tire of this fight
Come close, and let me kiss you
Don't taunt me any more
This same old game, my sweet one
What do you play it for?
Oh, dear heart, let's fight no more
Forsake your vows of Light
Take me down into your heart
I'll drink your life this night
Fly down into my darkness
My love is beyond death
Just let me drink your beauty
Devour your last breath
Abandon me, you hell-cat
Just try it if you dare!
Go on, just try to kill me
We've seen how well you fare
You'll never give in, will you?
You'll not admit defeat
Innocently seduce me
With living, pulsing heat
Dance with me, my one last love
I will need nothing more
Let me kiss your tender mouth
And be your paramour
You always knew
The Lost Pages: Ch. 1In 1990, Susan Kay wrote a novel which depicts the story of the Phantom of the Opera. The story begins at his birth and ends, respectively, very shortly after his death. Much of the novel was written based on extensive research of the locations mentioned in the book, as well as the notes of the author of the original novel, Gaston Leroux. Monsieur Leroux has claimed to have had contact with, if not the Opera Ghost himself, then those few who were close to him. Upon obtaining certain documents, formerly owned by Leroux, Kay came into some very interesting information.However, at the behest of another, more famous author, a portion of the story regarding this information was omitted from the final version of the book.More Like This
This author is Anne Rice, perhaps the most well-known writer of vampire fiction since Bram Stoker, himself. The reason for the omission of this chapter of Erik's life was due simply to copyright. The Vampire Lestat is presumably a fictional character created by Rice, and is

Of vampires it can be said that one thing has not changed through time; they are beings that live by extraction of another's blood. They hunt in the night and are synonymous of evil. The creatures' representations, however, respond to the time and place the story is being written as demonstrated by the many differences between Bram Stoker's Dracula and Anne Rice's Lestat De Lioncourt in The Vampire Chronicles. The differences embedded in the historical and sociological context of these works is no clearer than in the arena of masculinity where Dracula is hyper-masculine and Lestat is a bisexual dandy.
According to Clieve Leatherdale, an expert on European folklore and mysticism, the romantic view of the literary vampire in Northwestern Europe is that of a refined aristocrat educated in classical traditions and endowed with charm beyond the mere mortals surrounding him or her (102-3). Both Stoker's Count and Rice's Lestat conform to this rule. D

A child can be the most exhausting thing. Especially when that child is a vampire. For mortal and vampire a like, children are difficult to contain and easily out wit and maneuver their adult caretakers. And even with our combined undead strength, Lestat and I were no match for our daughter. She was too fast, too young and Lestat was far too impatient to deal with her. She quickly won the bedtime battle that occurred nightly, just before dawn, at least against Lestat. He would give up chasing her, leaving me alone to catch her as he walked off and went to his coffin cursing (in French) in frustration. I quickly decided that there had to be an easier way to get her to go to sleep.
One night, I was in the study going through our finances. As I was finishing the commotion downstairs caught my attention. Clearly the time had gotten away from me and when I looked at the clock, I realized dawn would approach in a little less then two hours. And now Lestat was trying to put Claudia
