Lucy by hellcorpceo Lucy by hellcorpceo
I was reading Dracula a while back, and decided to do a painting of Lucy. Lucy gets a bad rap in the movies--Movie Dracula is seductive, and so Lucy is a slutty slutty slut because she falls for him first and gets vampirized. In the book, Lucy is a wonderful woman, and her only real flaw is having idiot friends who are too stupid to actually protect her.

Seriously, the thing reads like Van Helsing and his cohorts have some kind of memory disorder. They keep leaving the near-dead Lucy alone, and either Dracula breaks in, or the house staff freaking LETS HIM IN by opening the windows in Lucy's room and taking down all the garlic because it smells bad. This happens again and again and again. Surely, you think, surely THIS TIME Van Helsing will stop being a baby and just spend the night in the room while Lucy's suitors search for Dracula and kill him. But no, nobody does that, and so Lucy has to die. Worst vampire hunters ever.

Lucy in movie versions always reminded me of the character Scarlett from 'Gone with the Wind' someone who got her own way, acted a bit obnoxious and a flirt...i never really paid much attention to the character. But i love this! :)

well, Stoker wanted to have her stabbed*, so she had to get vampirized first. Plus she regrets not being able to marry 2 guys at once ( or is it 3 ? can't remember ) so in victorian terms she was a total slut and got it coming.

But you're entirely right in your assessment of that part which is the weakest of the novel ( a weak novel in my opinion )

* it's been rather convincingly argued the stabbing scene is as much of a gang-rape as could be written at the time

Umm...technially Lucy wasn't stabbed, she was staked through the heart.  Just thought I'd tell you.
