365 Days of Writing

May 14th: The interview


Interview your favorite fictional character.

After much deliberation (Ethan Hunt, Spencer Reid, Alex Cross, Patrick Jane, Superman etc.), I choose Lestat de Lioncourt because I am really feeling him right now. My interview is probably going to suck, but here’s a heads up: Lestat would be replying with some of my favorite quotes from Interview with the Vampire. Let’s see what I can do with this given that I make a lame interviewer and maybe I’ll have Lestat turn the table on me. 😛

“I’ve always been my own teacher. And I must confess I’ve always been my favorite pupil as well.” Lestat


Me: (speechless upon first sight on Lestat)
Lestat: (darkly chuckles) I assume I need no introduction.

Me: Lestat, thank you for agreeing to see me at such short notice. How are things lately?
Lestat: I am afraid, madam, my days are sacrosanct.

Me: By the way, I interviewed your so-call half, Louis. He talked at length about you. Listen to this… (Plays the tape recorder)
Lestat: (When he had enough) Oh, Louis, Louis. Still whining, Louis. Have you heard enough? I’ve had to listen to that for centuries!

Me: (Hurriedly takes the tape off) Is it so easy for you to kill (unlike Louis) that you do not have any sort of compassion for the living among you?
Lestat: It’s so easy you almost feel sorry for them. You’ll get used to killing. Just forget about that mortal coil. You’ll become accustomed to it, all too quickly.

Me: And you’ve got a taste for the aristocrats!
Lestat: There’s nothing in the world now that doesn’t hold some sort of… Fascination. (Smiles) What I wouldn’t give for a drop of good old-fashioned Creole blood!

Me: And what about Louis and Claudia?
Lestat: One happy family.

Me: What’s your favorite snack?
Lestat: Evildoers are easier, and they taste better. 

Me: (Grimaces) I think I’ll stick with my French cuisine.
Lestat: Come to New Orleans then. The Paris Opera is in town. We can try some French cuisine.

Me: What are your thoughts on hell?
Lestat: I don’t know any hell.
Me: Surely, you must believe there is a hell just as there is a heaven!
Lestat: And what if there is no hell, or they don’t want us there? Ever think of that?
Me: But…
Lestat: (Yells)

Me: Okay, there is no need to be getting the fangs out. Are all vampires the same, in your own opinion?
Lestat: We are predators.

Me: I’m curious. How do you know who to choose to ‘turn’? Is it a random thing?
Lestat: Why should I tell you? It’s in my power. 

Me: And what about the dark gift?
Lestat: The dark gift is different for each of us. But one thing is true for us all, we grow stronger as we go along. Just take my word for it.

Me: I could see why Louis couldn’t resist you.
Lestat: No one could resist me, not even you.

Me: Your life is well, very interesting.
Lestat: Do you still want death? Or have you tasted it enough?
Me: Erm, what?!
Lestat: I’ve come to answer your prayers. Life has no meaning anymore, does it? The wine has no taste, food sickens you and there seems no reason for any of it.

Me: When did I say that?
Lestat: Don’t be afraid. I’m going to give you the choice I never had.
