you either die a prisoner, or live long enough to see yourself scale the walls like a lizard

Dracula REALLY benefits from the real time experience that Dracula Daily gives it. Because, like, I GET it. Jonathan has been trapped in that castle for coming on two months now. Feeling everything at once or nothing? Crying on the floor? Staring mesmerized at dust motes? Observing yet another unimaginable tragedy and feeling dull and blank? Bitch that's month two of lockdown to a tee, I have BEEN there, except for how everyone in Jonathan's quarantine bubble is a serial killer.

Jonathan before sneaking off into the Count’s room is just
“bye Mina! bye cruel and unjust world! bye Mina!”
“you said Mina twice”
“I like Mina”

Ah, midsummer: when we’re getting deeper and deeper into the “ohhh, this is a classic horror novel” stage of Dracula Daily. With my historian hat on, I have just one observation to make about our June 25 entry.
The only thing I found was a great heap of gold in one corner—gold of all kinds, Roman, and British, and Austrian, and Hungarian, and Greek and Turkish money, covered with a film of dust, as though it had lain long in the ground. 
Huh, you may be saying to yourselves, that seems like a random assortment of coins. Why Roman and then British and then all the others? Why these coinages, specifically?
Empires. They’re all empires. The British Empire saw itself very specifically as the successor to Rome in the scope of its power and learning (but also with the culture of Greece, because they were, they were convinced, cool like that.) So we have Rome, master of the ancient world as imagined by Victorians. We have Britain, master of the modern world ditto, and it must be said they had a point. Austria and Hungary were, at the time of Jonathan’s writing, a single empire, and had been since 1867, but this was a temporary state of affairs linking two powerful monarchies of East-Central Europe. Greece we’ve covered. And then there is “Turkish money,” the currency of the Ottoman Empire, masters of enormous swathes of Central Asia and Southeastern Europe from the 15th century onward.
And all of this money? All of this power? The “chains and ornaments,” still more obvious signifiers of power? All of this is much more relevant to how the Count lives than furniture. And it tells us not only about his past, but, by implication, about his future ambitions. Dun dun dunnnnnn.

for those enjoying Dracula Daily and the profound homosexual undertones thus far, I am delighted to report upcoming chapters contain an equal amount of increasingly less subtle lesbian undertones!

Soon Dracula will be on a 'rude houseguest stories' subreddit telling everybody about this English lawyer he hosted out of the kindness of his heart who then broke into his bedroom and watched him sleep.

I wish that more vampire media maintained vampires sleeping with their eyes wide open. That is terrifying to think about.

Absolutely bonkers over the audacity of Jonathan just going, “This supernatural, superhumanly strong creature beyond my comprehension can climb on the walls, so why can’t I?” The madlad. I am in awe. You go, you funky little lawyer.

As much as this entry destroyed me emotionally, especially as a parent, I realized it showed a perfect Rule of Three of the courage of the people of Transylvania.
1) The woman who gave Jon her crucifix to wear - she couldn't go with him to the castle, but she was willing to offer what protection she had.
2) The man who tried to keep Jon from his coach- this was more direct action, but when faced by the Count (or his alleged "associate"), couldn't fight back out of fear. Sometimes, all you can do is just try to gum up the works and buy some time.
3) The woman at the gate in today's entry- what guts! She knew full well what the Count and his brides were, and she still was pounding on the door of the castle to the bitter end, praying for the slimmest possibility that her kid was still alive.
There's a pretty substantial vein of discontent and resistance among the Transylvanian people against Dracula, and I wish modern adaptations did more with that.

did i understand correctly that jonathan climbed on the side of an old castle (while barefoot) bc 1. holy shit and 2. when i started reading dracula i certainly didnt expect a scene straight out of mission impossible

It is strangely comforting that our Mutual Friend Jonathan is having the same day the rest of us are having, a couple hundred years and several vampires to the side
