Summary:

Renfield settles into his new life. He cannot escape the bizarre conclusion that his employer, Vlad Ţepeş, terror of the Danube and scourge of the Order of the Dragon, has been weeping and rearranging the sitting room furniture in the middle of the night.



I've watched only a few episodes of the current Dracula series with Jonathan Rhys Myers, and vampire stories/Dracula stuff isn't usually my thing, but I enjoyed what I did watch, especially the guy playing Renfield (who was awesome in RocknRolla). So when my pal [personal profile] belmanoir wrote slash fic for it, I had to read it -- she's such an incredible writer that I was sure it would be good, and it really, really was. It's a deceptively simple story, but there are layers and layers going on underneath this main concept, especially in light of the fact that Renfield is a successful black man in a very hostile white person's world, and Dracula is playing at a false identity, and just...well, go read it and you'll see. It's really fucking good, and also smoking hot.

One of the more recent episodes was all about Renfield's backstory. He's fairly badass, NGL.

He is really awesome, and I have a feeling if I do watch more and get even slightly fannish about it, it will be because of him.
