Integra: I assume you’ve already made arrangements?

Walter: Yes. You’re booked for a week on the cruise ship Demeter.

Integra: Not the Demeter that Count Dracula traveled on, I hope?

Walter: Of course not — I checked. It just happens to have the same name. There’s absolutely nothing to be worried about!

[KRAK-BOOM]

Walter: …I’m sure the ominous clap of thunder was just a coincidence.

Integra: Perhaps. But I’m not ruling out “sign from God” just yet.

A quarter of an hour later…

Integra: Can you think of any other times?

Walter: Just one. You were eight years old. They never did rebuild that amusement park.

But this time will be different. I promise — we’ve worked out a few precautions to make sure that no vampires will disturb you this time. First: sunlight is hateful at best, fatal at worst to vampires. The brighter, the more harmful. Second: running water poses a problem. And the ocean itself is like the pits of hell to them.

Put together sunlight, the ocean, and relaxation, and you get…

Integra: Do enlighten me.

Walter: A Caribbean cruise.

Integra: I was afraid of that.

Integra: No, Walter. Absolutely not. You do remember what happened the last time you and Seras convinced me to do something “relaxing”?

Walter: Well, the party turned out to have undead hosts.

Integra (thinking): And he doesn’t even know about the incident with the champagne…

Integra: And the time before that? It would’ve been before Seras came.

Walter: It must have been…Paris. With the vampires at the theater.

Integra: And the time before that?

Walter: The resort. With the werewolves.

Integra: Before that?

Walter: New York — the hotel that got attacked by some undead…

Fangirl Karaoke: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Fangirl Karaoke: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun published on No Comments on Fangirl Karaoke: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

– It’s an age-old refrain: girls just wanna have fun.

– So do fangirls, for that matter.

– But vamps…

I ask her what her choice will be
The police girl nods that she’ll be going with me
Oh police girl, we are the fortunate ones
But vamps, they gotta have blood
Oh, vamps just gotta have blood

I come out with a little police girl
My Master says, I’ll have someone take care of her
Oh, Master dear, you know you’re still number one
But now, she’s gotta have blood
Oh, vamps just gotta have

That’s all they really need, some blood
No food, no drink, and no one
But vamps just gotta have blood
Oh, vamps just gotta have blood

I once was a beautiful girl
But now I’m cut off from the rest of the world
I burn up if I try to walk in the sun
And vamps, they gotta have blood
Oh, vamps just gotta have

That’s all they really need, some blood
No food, no drink, and no one
But vamps just gotta have blood
Oh, vamps just gotta have blood

They just gotta, they just gotta
They just gotta, they just gotta
Vampis just gotta have blood

That’s all they really need, some blood
No food, no drink, and no one
But vamps, vamps just gotta have blood!

Accomplices are enlisted…

Walter: This is one of those “that’s so crazy that it just might work” ideas, isn’t it?

Strategies are devised…

Seras: One week, or two?

Walter: Better make it one. I don’t think I could hold Integra’s job longer than that.

…and the plan is executed.

Walter: Sir Integra, we’ve been thinking…

One quiet night, somewhere on the outskirts of London, in an old and stately mansion…

…in a deep, dark room, within a four-poster coffin containing a fledgling child of the night…

…a decision is made.

Seras (thinking): Sir Integra could really use a vacation.

Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: Where do you get your ideas?

Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: Where do you get your ideas? published on No Comments on Doujinshi-Ka’s Inbox: Where do you get your ideas?

In the sense of “go easy on yourself,” not “be a slacker who doesn’t try.”

Erin: Now, here’s a loaded question if I ever heard one.

Email: Where do you get your ideas?

Erin: The simple answer is: I think them up. As for the complex answer…

First of all, whenever you get an idea, write it down. I have a notebook in which I jot down every amusing Hellsing-related idea I have for future reference.

Look for ideas all around you; relate random things (Dr. Seuss, Windows 98, your history class) to Hellsing.

Consider what the characters would do in bizarre situations (the whole upcoming storyline started with two such words). Jot down funny things your friends say about it (I get a lot of jokes from my mom, unintentionally on her part).

For me, most of it is like fanfic writing, since most of my strips are parts of full-fledged storylines. If you have an idea that’s funny on its own, but could have a whole amusing backstory leading up to it, write out the backstory!

Behind me are the pages on which I planned out the Valentine’s Week story. I don’t usually write out the whole script, just general plans and really good lines. Oh, and the occasional sketch ^_^

By the way — there’s something Scott Adams (cartoonist of Dilbert) said once that I always try to keep in mind. Most people would consider a 20% success rate horrendous. Not him. If he can make someone laugh at one strip out of five, he considers that a good week. And so do I.
