Born of my innate tendency to mix and merge my favorite fandoms. 

During a fight with a fill-in-the-blank enemy (perhaps it’s Dracula?) Trevor, Alucard, and Sypha were faced with a deceptively vague spell - one designed to show them that ‘they had no future!’ However, said curse was interrupted mid-casting by 1) A sanctified whip 2) A gout of flames and 3) A silver sword.

Rather then unleash a force of devastation upon them, it instead summoned Percival Graves from approximately five hundred years in the future.

Percival Graves who took one look at Trevor and spluttered “Granddad!?” Who addressed Sypha as “Grandma?!” And whose face filled with utter exasperated fury upon seeing Alucard. “Grandfather, what the fuck?”

Percival Graves, who punches demons in the face (just like Trevor), summons gouts of fire and ice to his side in a fight (just like Sypha) and accomplishes it all with an effortless grace and almost arrogant self-assurance (just like Alucard).

Percival Graves, whose full name is Percival Belmont Graves, and who immediately starts curing ‘Grandsir’ Alucard to high heaven. “What the fuck did you do now, you senile old fuck?!”

Percival Graves, who is the many-times great-grandson of Trevor and Sypha Belmont, has had to put up with infuriatingly vague and melodramatic ‘Grandsir’ Alucard his entire life, and who has been summoned from the far future just as he was about to fucking propose to Newt, goddamnit!

Percival Graves, who rolls his eyes at Alucard, gingerly trades tips on magic with ‘Grandma’ Sypha, and who, surprisingly, gets along best with ‘Grandpa’ Trevor - they have similar tastes in alcohol, and Graves desperately needs a drink. (Trevor, for his part, is determinedly regarding Percival as something of a distant cousin; he’s quietly thrilled to have family again, but it threatens his sanity to think of this man as his grandson). Percival can’t stand Alucard, and Grandma Sypha is - almost frighteningly naive in ways that make him very uncomfortable; on the other hand, he falls quite easily into talking shop with Trevor.

It was Percival’s mother who was the Belmont, but she made damn sure her son would be able to wield a whip with the best of them if it ever came down to it.

Then, of course, Newt somehow manages to follow Percy back in time (I see him as arriving on the back of a fire-breathing dragon for some reason) and Trevor damn near swallows his tongue. There’s a certain physical resemblance between Newt and Sypha - both thin, short-haired, sharp-faced magic-users, who are unexpectedly baddass. In short, Trevor is the first to figure out that Belmonts have a type - he kind of wants to bang his head against something very hard at that realization.

@elenothar

Dracula is almost happy at the revelation his many-times descendant has inherited his fashion sense.

Graves: “My psychotic great-grandfather just complimented me.” (Cue BSOD)

One of these days, I am going to find the time to sit down and write down my Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them/Castlevania fusion plot bunny.

…it’s gramander, and involves dragons, demons, time-travel, annoying relatives, True Love, threesomes, and Percival Belmont Graves cursing out Grandsir Alucard, talking shop with Grandma Sypha, and sharing a long, companionable drink with Grandpa Trevor.

Rewatching the Church scene from Castlevania, and I just - I just love this scene so much. This is a literal demon giving a corrupt churchman the Reasons You Suck speech (and trolling the ever-loving hell out of the priest; it’s seriously awesome) but it’s the implications on faith and belief that really draw my interest.

‘God is not here’ - that line gets me every time. The bishop thinks he is doing God’s work, but the fact that the demons can literally enter the church reveal that as a lie. It also implies that in other circumstances, the church might actually have posed a significant barrier/threat to the demons - that is obviously not the case in this instance.

One interpretation is that the bishop does believe, does have faith - but only in what HE believes his god to be. His interpretation of it - which may not correlate with the actual figure. I once read - I can’t remember exactly where, though I have the sneaking suspicion that it was C.S. Lewis - a line that essentially stated that ‘god is in the deed’ - meaning that no matter what you think, it is what you do, the actions that one takes, that really matter.

…when did I become interested in theology? …right, when it showed up in an animated show about demons and vampires. At any rate, I’m probably getting this wrong; please don’t kill me for my ruminating?

Author: Crownofpins

Summary: Deep in the wilds, mysterious things wander through the lands on mysterious trails. Dracula isn’t the only legend that walks their earth.

Trevor darns clothing, Sypha sews some pants, and Alucard spends a lot of time thinking about plumbing. And, through it all, they bond… hopefully. If they don’t kill each other first.

And if they don’t get eaten first. That’s important too.

Also, Sypha is 100% not the voice of reason in that trio, quit shoving her in that role, fandom. Sypha is the idealist with principles she values over self-preservation, Alucard is the drama queen, and Trevor is the one exhaustedly saying ‘Guys. Guys no. Do not fight the giant demon with only a sword and a pack of matches. Do not.’

owlgirl1998:

(Okay @armera and @yrimiel rebloged my eariler post so I’m tagging them, but please, interact with me. I am a social creature and crave validation)

Imagine for a moment, Monster Hunter Belmonts.

Belmonts that use magic to make themselves stronger and more durable and train like demons for /generations/ until they become something a little bit more than human.

Imagine Trevor fighting a regular human for the first time. He still remembers the aftermath. He tones it down after that but he’s never been very good at knowing what normal people are like. He gets up just a little to easily, punches just a little to hard.

He gets used to it.

The Cyclops is a surprise. He never faced one and his first strikes barely draw blood so used to holding back. Killing it’s a rush.

He barely has to push himself with the demons. Humans are breakable and deamons are just as fragile if you know their weaknesses and the Belmonts made sure that everyone of them knew them. Sybla fights beside him, wielding fire and ice and wind and something in him /sings/

And then Alucard. And he hasn’t had to push himself this way in years. He’s so used to trying to slow down, soften his blows, act a little more human, not draw too much attention to himself, and well, he’s out of practice.

He’s not afraid of death. He is however slightly afraid of what his mother will do to him when she finds out how easily he was taken down.

There’s a hand in his hair, pulling his head back to bare his neck and he hasn’t faced someone this strong in years. It’s a little distracting. And then the bastard is backing off, following Sypha’s command as if it was as easy as breathing and Trevor is completly and totally screwed.

darthstitch:

I know, I’ve been busy.  I’ve been raving over this series for the past week but I couldn’t get to a proper keyboard so I can a Proper Rave™ complete with gifs and sparklies.  

Seriously, WHERE IS THE REST OF CASTLEVANIA, NETFLIX?  YOU CAN’T LEAVE US HANGING WITH JUST FOUR BLOODY EPISODES, OKAY??!!!!  I NEED THE NEXT SET OF EPISODES AND I NEED THEM NOW. 

Fine, fine.  I’ll be a proper grown up.  I’ll stop sulking and wait patiently. 

Let’s get on with the List of Things That I Really Love About Netflix’s Castlevania animated series:

a.  Dracula - First off, Dracula is not a precious misunderstood Woobie Destroyer of Worlds.  He’s evil.  He’s got a dangerous labyrinth of a castle sitting smack dab in the middle of a forest of skeletons that are impaled on very long sharp stakes, his victims from years ago.  Dracula is bored, mean and absolutely disgusted with humanity.  Apparently, the only reason he doesn’t seem to be concocting some sort of Evil Plan to Cover the World in Eternal Night™ in the first few minutes we see him is because he can’t be arsed to anymore.  

But he is a lot more complex than your average moustache-twirling baddie and in less than five minutes we get the idea that there’s still some ounce of humanity left in everyone’s favorite Evil King Vampire.  He basically gets this OH NO SHE’S ADORABLE AND I LIKE HER SEND HELP look on his face once he gets properly acquainted with one Dr. Lisa Fahrenheights.  

b.  Lisa Fahrenheights - People who’ve played Castlevania:  Symphony of the Night will know who she is and in the game, she’s pretty much portrayed as some sort of sanctified figure in a Certain Person’s memories.  In this series, Lisa Fahrenheights is smart, sassy and willing to tell off the most dangerous vampire in the world for his bad manners.  And while our acquaintance with her is painfully short, it gets pretty clear why Dracula would fall arse over cape for her.  

And surprisingly, she genuinely seems to love him back and is apparently willing to believe he can be better than his Evil self without forgetting that he IS a terrifying Evil Dark Lord With Fangs™.  We only get like 10 minutes to have her around and I’m actually willing to buy into the Dracula/Lisa love story far more than I did with Twilight or the Star Wars Anakin/Padme romance.  

She’s genuinely a good person without being insufferably saintly and I hope we get to see more of her in flashbacks as this series progresses because LISA FAHRENHEIGHTS DESERVED BETTER GDI.  

Seriously, in the Great List of Incredibly Stupid and Boneheaded Ideas™, accusing Dr. Lisa Fahrenheights Tepes (somehow, I get the feeling she and Vlad had a long and lively discussion about being his Princess/Lady/Countess and she stuck to her guns about being a Doctor) of witchcraft and then burning her alive at the stake is probably in the Top Three.  Right beside the one that says, “Do not kill the Cinnabon Roll Son of the Dark Lord of the Sith while Darth Papa is actually there to see everything.”  

Unfortunately, since this is the Middle Ages and we have all that bullshit about wise women being falsely accused and the Church being corrupt, so this clusterfuckery happens and of course, Vlad eventually comes home to find the house he built for his beloved destroyed and that he’s too late to save her.  He can’t even get the chance to possibly turn her into a vampire.  

Of course he’s pissed off.

One of, if not my favorite elements from Netflix’s Castlevania series is how, when the Elder of the Speakers tells Trevor that Dracula literally unleashed Hell because of dumb mother-fuckers killing his wife, Trevor doesn’t respond with ‘Oh, what a terrible thing!’ or ‘That’s no reason to kill everyone!’

He’s just like: ’*nods* Eyup, that’ll do it.’
