Hi! I absolutely live for your vibe and your blog. I'm not very familiar with fantasy sub genre's, could you tell me what gaslamp fantasy is?
Ahhhh saying my vibe is on point is such a compliment thank you 😍
Gaslamp Fantasy, to my understanding, has several core elements that set it apart from similar genres (such as Steampunk and Historic Fantasy). Namely, what makes a story Gaslamp Fantasy is the magic system, the inspired time period, and the subtle nod to its precursor genre, Gothic Horror.
For example, as the name implies, the novel is usually set in a world in which electricity has either not yet been utilised universally or is in its early stages of development, giving either a Regency/Victorian/Edwardian setting or Victorian+ style world . It must be noted that like a lot of Fantasy, a failing of Gaslamp is it's Eurocentrism. A facet of this movement away from the technology of known history, can be the exploration of magic as a means of supplementing society and life where electricity was beginning to be known. Furthermore, this use of magic and magic systems set Gaslamp Fantasy apart from Steampunk as the aspects that make it fantasy are rooted in the use of magic rather than the speculative inclusion of an alternate steampowered society. The Historical aspect again proves important in this distinction, as steampunk has been able to break into the Sci-Fi genre whereas Gaslamp remains fantasy. However, Historic Fantasy is again, a different genre. Historic Fantasy is set in a certain time that usually mirrors or is heavily inspired by a real period of his history, alongside the inclusion of fantastical elements whereas Gaslamp Fantasy is usually set in a Victorian+ or Victorian+ adjacent world and the magic is not just present it is essential to the story.
Finally, Gaslamp Fantasy's origin in Gothic Horror is important to the genres characteristics as many aspects of Gothic remain. The inclusion of the mythological or folkloric within the world, such as vampires, witches, werewolves, ghosts, demons etc. is pulled from Gothic Horror. The genres differ in their treatments of the supernatural, Gothic Horror serves to alienate the otherness or intrusion of a supernatural being or event and ultimately remove it from the world in order to restore balance (think Carmilla, Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, etc.) whereas the supernatural merges with the everyday in Gaslamp Fantasy and becomes part of the world building (think Infernal Devices, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrel, A Marvellous Light).
Anyway, like any genre it is not set in stone, and I certainly missed something in my explanation but I hope that helped and I'm sorry I wrote an essay (I'm an English Major at Uni).

New rule I will at least attempt to follow: If you want to make a Dracula adaptation where he has a happy relationship with Mina, whatever. It’s not my thing but there’s a million ways most adaptations change books.
If you claim that you are deconstructing the book by making happy Dracula/Mina and making Jonathan a big asshole who would abandon her for scars on her neck, or if you use the phrase “Bram Stoker’s” in the title, I reserve the right to be pissy.

Y’all I did a thing. So yesterday I read chapter 21 of Dracula and I really liked it so I decided to draw this thingy with Dracula and Renfield. It took me around seven hours over the course of two days but I think it was worth it. I for one am quite satisfied with how it turned out, one could even say proud.

Dracula had it right, sleep all day, live alone in an abandoned castle & explode into a thousand bats to get out of social situations.

genuinely one of my favourite details about Bram Stokers Dracula that isn't really transferred to the pop culture is that vampires have irridescent eyes, they appear brown at a glance, however when light is reflected on them they seem to go red!
