Anime: The Novel!
Stalking the Wild Dante
And of us together:
And then I had
a brilliant idea! “Hey, have you signed up for the Masquerade?? I’m
supposed to do a solo walk-on, but since you’re Dante, maybe we could
go up together!” She was up for it, but I was not the first to have this
brilliant idea. Turns out that Trish and another Dante & Vergil pair
were already talking about doing a big DMC walk-on. I was very happy to
join in! I just hoped that Trish wouldn’t have a, uhh... wardrobe
malfunction onstage. Those things are dangerous! (or should I say...
DAN-gerous? *raise eyebrow*)
Then it was off
to the Dealers Room to buy some DMC doujinshi!
But as I looked through the stacks of Vergil x Dante manga, I realized
that my time was running out. I was dressed as Vergil for a reason: to
find and kiss a Dante! But where were all the Dantes? This is supposed
to be a DMC-centric Con, WHY AM I NOT SWIMMING IN DANTES?!? Even Yaoi
Con’s Dante was dressed as Nero this time. Ugh. With my chances of
kissing Reuben being slim to none, I’d take any Dante to save myself
from coming home empty-handed! There was Vasher dressed as DMC2 Dante,
who was actually a yaoi fan, and trust me, I tried hinting about us kissing, but I
think she was into that. Oh what to do, what to do... >_>
Out of the
doorway of the Dealer’s Room I saw him. A male Dante. A male DMC3
Dante. With a spectacular costume, no less! He even had Rebellion and a
sparkly blood amulet!!
My eyes lit up
and I turned to Vasher, “Look! A male Dante!! OMG, an actual male
Dante... CaT! Where’s CaT?? CaT!! Where’s my camera?? Male Dante
alert!” At this point I was running around the Dealers Room like a
headless chicken trying to find CaT... because CaT had my camera, and I
needed somebody to take the picture. “CaT! D-d-dante! We gotta get
over there, it’s a male Dante! I have to kiss him, lets go!! Go go
with, and by the time we got there, I heard a girl shout “OK,
EVERYBODY WITH SILVER HAIR GET IN THE SHOT!" I pointed quizzically
at myself. "Yes, that means you!” she told me. We were pulled
into a decent-sized DMC photo orgy:
enough for me, of course. I needed to kiss that Dante!! Now... you gotta
understand... I can kiss Dantes no problem, but asking them
to isn’t my strong point. ^_^;; I went from CaT to Vasher trying to
figure out who could approach him about it. Finally, Vasher did, and
asked Dante, “would you be willing to do a yaoi
shot for us?” He said yes.
Woah, there! That was way too easy. Does he even know what yaoi means?? The first Dante I kissed sure didn’t. I couldn’t believe it, so I approached him myself and reiterated, “I know my friend just asked you if we can have a yaoi shot, but do you know what that means? I mean, like, it’s ok if I can get a picture of me kissing you?” Dante nodded. I blinked but decided not to question it further.
Since the photo
shoot wasn’t completely dispersed yet, I’m pretty sure people
besides Vasher and I got pictures of this. Thanks, Dante!! Ahhh... I was
happy. I got my obligatory Dante x Vergil picture, and this was a pretty
cute Dante, too! ^_^
Now I could
safely go drop off my purchases back at the room. Due to the length of
my Vergil coat, walking up and down steps was a bit of a challenge. I
kept stepping on the coattails. >.<
During our trips back and forth through the hotel, we would sometimes see Dan or Reuben in the hallways, and at one point rode in an elevator with Johnny. We did not approach them, however. It was more like being on a safari where Reuben, Dan, and Johnny were endangered species. We did not want to frighten them or interfere with their natural habitat, only point from afar and whisper “there goes the rare Danimal” or “I think Reuben just went behind a corner.” I didn’t dare make eye contact, lest they gaze into my soul and see how crazy I really am.
