I am Dracula

September 25, 2017 § Leave a comment

I am Dracula, I am tall and dark and mysterious, and brilliant, and intelligent, and genius, and rich: what more could I possibly want? I take their unending squeals of abuse as a compliment, and as such are warmed by them.

How I love the sounds of the jungle!

How I love the sounds of the jungle! I want to become an “unrestrained colourist with a richness of line bordering on the violent”!

I feel like a butterfly and you’ve pinned me to the board; every time I flutter my wings a bit you hit the pin in even further

I feel like a butterfly, and you’ve pinned me to the board; every time I flutter my wings a bit you hit the pin in even further. I want to find my own way to live, I don’t like it if you think you’ve already got the answer. The patient is likely to fall back inside themselves again. I think if you won’t admit the problem you can’t help soften it. I feel I’m fighting for my survival, and I wanted your help. If you’re different in any way, you have to fight for your right to be different, because people will try and crush you for it; you are joining in. I feel like the man in The Crucible. You seem to see my difference as something that has to be cured, whereas I see it as something that has to be developed, and exploited.

I’ve spent my whole life with people trying to make me feel ashamed: I’m here to tell them they have failed and I have survived and now they better run for cover

I’ve spent my whole life with people trying to make me feel ashamed: I’m here to tell them they have failed and I have survived, and now they better run for cover, because I AM a vampire and I’m proud of it, and when I’m in a position to start settling scores they will feel there isn’t a hiding place in the world that I won’t find them in. I’ve been on the back foot for 28 years, and finding me in that vulnerable position, Sarah tried to deliver the coup de grâce and finish me off; I’ve survived her too: I will not be destroyed, I am a rare and endangered species, and I will not be made extinct just to make life easier for the stupid people. Time was on Dracula’s side, time was on Oscar Wilde’s side, time was on Van Gogh’s side: they all still live, more powerful than ever. Their detractors are dead & buried and anonymous forever. I am inhuman, but I’m still more human than you are.

“A sense of one’s own strangeness” is a wonderful thing to discover in life

“A sense of one’s own strangeness” is a wonderful thing to discover in life, and you try to take that away. I must fight to the death to protect that.

Oscar Wilde showed the stupid people up for what they are; I hope that is what I can do too. One day if I’ve got 60 or 80 books behind me

Oscar Wilde showed the stupid people up for what they are; I hope that is what I can do, too. One day if I’ve got 60 or 80 books behind me, that body of work will show the stupid people up, it will educate people about people who are borderline autistic, demonstrate that that is as valid and as valuable a thing to be as anything else.
