A story full of references to the Disney movie. Although you won’t need any background knowledge to understand the scones, the dancing, the host’s handsome yet sinister children, or the excess of champagne.
A few days before the night of the ball: Integra: …and if you call one more time I’ll send a fully-armed unit to destroy your office, is that clear? Walter: Iscariot? Integra: Worse. Telemarketer. You wanted to see me…? Walter: Yes, about the ball… …have you given any thought to your escort?
Integra: Will I actually need an escort? Walter: It’s common protocol… Integra: And why didn’t you mention this earlier? Walter: I suppose I’ve come to take such things for granted. I do apologize. Integra: Well, I can’t exactly rent one, especially at this late stage. So I suppose you’ll have to do. Walter: Understood. Alucard:… Continue reading Beauty and the Beast 2/34
Alucard: But do consider the offer. True, I am far older than Walter, but I don’t look it. Integra: Out of the question. You don’t honestly think a ballroom full of upper-crust aristocrats will fail to notice a vampire in their midst? At least a few will be aware of the reality of such creatures.… Continue reading Beauty and the Beast 3/34
Every doujinshi needs at least one “fling!” scene. Alucard: You’ve seen me turn into a score of bats, a dog, a shadow. Why haven’t you considered that I can change my shape in smaller ways? Integra: Like what? Alucard: Allow me to demonstrate. (fling) (step) (drop)
[brown eyes] [flat teeth] Integra: Even without your clearly vampiric features, you’ll still scare people. Alucard: I would scare people no matter what form I took. Integra: True.
Alucard: So, how about it? May I escort you to the coming ball? [bow] Integra: Perhaps you may, after all…provided, of course, that you… …don’t shapechange, don’t glare at anyone, don’t stare at people’s necks, don’t make any cryptic remarks, especially about the moon or blood or drinking or thirst or night or death, don’t… Continue reading Beauty and the Beast 6/34
The night arrives (as if you hadn’t guessed)! Staff: May I see your invitation, madam? Staff (thinking): Cripes, she’s hot! Too bad that bloke’s so close at her side…he looks almost like a shadow… Integra: Certainly. I am Sir Integral Wingates Hellsing. Staff: Go on in. Staff (thinking): THAT’S Sir Hellsing?? I thought he…no, he’s… Continue reading Beauty and the Beast 7/34
I was going to call these two Jack and Diane, but I figured pulling the British-aristocrat names from a song about “two American kids growing up in the heartland” would be a bit odd. [overhead shot] Integra (thinking): Hm…Crowded. Lord Huntington: Sir Integra! Jolly good to see you! Integra: Lord Huntington, our gracious host. A… Continue reading Beauty and the Beast 8/34
Diane: Diane Elizabeth Huntington; charmed. Integra: Integra Wingates Hellsing; pleased to meet you. Diane: You can ask the orchestra to play something special if you like; a vocalist will arrive later in the evening. James: James Earl Huntington; enchanted. Integra: Pleased to meet you as well. James: The pleasure is all mine. Refreshments are on… Continue reading Beauty and the Beast 9/34
Huntington: Ah! More guests have arrived! Come along, James, Diane… James: Save me that dance, Sir Hellsing. Integra: I doubt he’s ever done a full day’s work in his life. Alucard: He’s a child. They both are. Integra: They’re a few years older than I am. Alucard: You’re a child too.
