Day 21 – Favorite romantic/sexual relationship (including asexual romantic relationships)

Louis and Lestat. Interview With A Vampire, the one Anne Rice book that I loved and made me waste hours of my life reading the rest of her books with the vain hope that she could match this one. Yeah, she doesn't. The Vampire Lestat is fine reading (I didn't like it, but it was good nonetheless), and Queen of the Damned is the last one I can safely recommend, though I feel like it abandons all the personal, emotion-driven storytelling that makes the first two books strong.

Anyway, I thought they were cute, and I like how tragic their relationship was. I don't mean like R&J tragic, though they were all fucked from the start, but more that it shows their romance, if you can even call it that, the furthest thing from romantic. They're vampires. I feel like that's how it's supposed to be. Anyway, I lose a lot of interest in them once Lestat takes up the POV character mantle in later books. I liked him better as an tragic anti-villain than as a well-meaning anti-hero. Louis I still adored now though, character bastardization aside (he's always been dumb as a brick, so it's not all that much of a bastardization, really). He's my favorite whiny little whiner ever. I want to pinch his cheeks.
