If you had to be stuck on a desert island with only one person, who would you pick? Integral and Enrico both know who they wouldn’t pick: each other. So, of course, that’s exactly where they end up together.
Enrico: Is it just me, or are we… Integra: … on a desert island? Yes. Enrico: This is starting to feel like a movie script. Integra: I wish it was. In movies, islands are always equipped with easy-to-reach coconuts and fresh water springs. Let’s get this boat on higher ground. Enrico: How about an episode… Continue reading Desert Island Storyline 1/34
Integra: The sooner we get out of here, the less time we have to spend near each other. Therefore…I’m going to go to sleep and try to contact Alucard in a dream. Enrico: What? No!! Integra: It’s the fastest way to get in touch with the rest of the world. Enrico: Regardless, I will not… Continue reading Desert Island Storyline 2/34
Enrico (thinking): “Let’s go separate ways to get wood, so we can change clothes while we’re at it”? She had a change packed?? I just had my swimsuit and tank top… Oh no, what if all she has is that bikini? I won’t be able to think straight! Enrico, you have to focus! She’ll walk… Continue reading Desert Island Storyline 3/34
Enrico: Can I borrow your glasses? Integra: Why? Enrico: To start the fire— you know, focus the sunlight— …or we could just use your cigar lighter… Integra: Give it back in one piece, and don’t burn down the forest. Enrico: Your faith in me is astonishing.
Enrico: I’m bored. Let’s talk. Integra: About what? Enrico: I don’t care. Anything. Integra: All right then… explain why it’s so abhorrent to use Alucard to help yourself. In any situation, not just this one. Answer as though it’s an innocently curious Catholic asking. Enrico: Well, what’s wrong with any sin? Integra: But why is… Continue reading Desert Island Storyline 5/34
Enrico: True, humans feed on animals, but vampires feed on humans: intelligent creatures, self-aware children God. It’s as unclean as humans practicing cannibalism. Integra: Hellsing has an arrangement with our country’s branch of the Red Cross: we feed our vampires with blood they deliver. Red blood cells only last 42 days after being donated; we… Continue reading Desert Island Storyline 6/34
Integra: Matthew 26:27-28. John 6:53-56. Over and over, Jesus gives clear directions regarding his blood. Enrico: His blood! Symbolizing his promise of salvation to the faithful! Not just anybody’s blood! Integra: Matthew 25:40 — “The king will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of… Continue reading Desert Island Storyline 7/34
Enrico: Good God… I knew you were heretical, but this is lunacy! Integra: Then we are in complete agreement… but you see how easily the Bible can be twisted into lunacy. What Integra’s not saying: the argument she just set up was used on her by…Alucard. (Funny how these things work out.) Integra: And in… Continue reading Desert Island Storyline 8/34
[SLAP] Integra: Now, now… …let’s not turn a turn a perfectly healthy theological debate in to a catfight.
Integra: You see? It’s always Iscariot that strikes first. Iscariot that picks fights with Hellsing. And we always turn the other cheek—that is, when we don’t catch the blows before they land. But there is no logical reason for our organizations to be enemies. The only thing that makes us so is your ridiculous self-appointed… Continue reading Desert Island Storyline 10/34
