[Esoteric Order Duets] Prelude: "Tomorrow's Girl" (13 Candles)

Part Two of our "extended prelude" covers Charlotte's vampiric education in the hills of New Hampshire, culminating with a shocking revelation from her sire that sets the chronicle in motion.

  1. Not only is Spartacus utterly without biblical material, it's adapted from Howard Fast's extremely Communist novel, which he started while serving prison time for refusing to co-operate with the House Un-American Activities Committee.

    Kubrick's film cuts most of the overtly Marxist stuff out, but the novel is not at all subtle about its Communism, if you ever look at it.

    2. Oh, in the World of Darkness, the novel and film are exactly the same. But the novel was written by the real Spartacus, a 6th-generation Brujah Methuselah who was Embraced by Critias at the time of his supposed death. The film's toning-down of the more overtly Communist aspects was, of course, the result of Camarilla manipulations.
