Do You Know What I Miss? Leeches

All monsters aren’t created equal. Some are “dark and full of terrors;” others—like the woman who spoke the title of this post—are murderous and beautiful, and their minds are half-caged in the twisted wires of psychosis. My pick for today’s entry to May Monster Madness belongs to the latter group, and she comes with a full membership to the exclusive lunacy gone wild club.

My favorite Joss Whedon character (second only to Willowis mad all the way to her fangs. I love the way Whedon uses Drusillas words to make her sound as insane as she looks. Here is a good example: “Spike, do you love my insides? All the parts you can’t see?” How do you answer that? If you say yes, she might get all excited, and suggest that you let her cut you up to see if she loves your liver as much as she loves your smile. Does this picture of Drusilla remind you of anyone else?

Craziness doesn’t keep Drusilla from burying herself (and others) in the art of healthy hobbies. Oh no. Our versatile bloodsucker enjoys gardening, even if her plans don’t always sprout as hoped: “Do you like daisies? I plant them but they always die. Everything I put in the ground withers and dies.”

Drusilla has a very difficult past, thanks to the unrequired attentions of dark and mysterious Agent Booth. Oops, wrong show. I meant to say that a couple of centuries ago, Angelus (I knew there was an ‘A’ somewhere in his name)stole Drusilla’s innocence. By deflowering her body and plucking out her soul, the vampire who sired her took away our psycho’s only chance at earthly sanity and heavenly sanctity. That would drive any virginal olden day psychic a little mad. Or a lot.

I better stop here. I’ve heard that this beautiful monster suffers no fools. Also, I have been meaning to ask her a question. “Um, Drusilla, why is your pretty little dolly all gagged up?” 

“Miss Edith speaks out of turn. She’s a bad example and will have no cakes today.”

Well, I guess I’m done for today. See you later, my Wicked Luvs. If you run into Drusilla, I suggest you keep your thoughts from morphing into words, or she might consider ripping off your tongue. And don’t play Look into My Fingers with her. Not if you value your eyeballs…

  1. There is a scene from an old B Vampire flick from the 70's which was called THE BEAST-MASTER, not to be confused with a later film starring Marc Singer. In this film there is a scene where the king vampire imprisons a young man and heends up with his hands covered in leeches. In the beginning of your post I was reminded of this film.

    1. Leeches gloves. Sounds creepy and crawly and bloody, my favorite! I better find that gem.

  2. Drusilla was always one of my favorites from Angel.

    I have to say this post made me lol literally,I have been watching Bones for years now and I'm still waiting on Booth to go all Vamp on a suspect.

    1. Right back at you! I just burst into laughter thinking about Booth going Vamp. Can you imagine the face of the person on the receiving end of that frown?

    2. Agent Booth hasn't gone vamp, but he kill a clown....I don't understand why they made him get counseling. I would've shot the damn thing as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4A4TGv12lfQ

    3. That ridiculous clown had it coming. I'm with you. They should have given him a medal ;-)

  3. I have to admit that I have never watched Buffy or Angel. I may be the only person in the world that hasn't. I do love your post, though. Drusilla seems like my kind of freaky chick! Hah.

    1. The TV show was pretty awesome (I still watch reruns every now and then) and the graphic novels are delicious, too. Whedon has some powerful and quirky characters. And Drusilla, well... you saw her in poking action.

  4. Drusilla is an awesome character! Joss Whedon really had a great take on characters. I think his are quirky and so wonderful! :-)

    1. Yes, he does! And his monsters are just so gloriously creepy. Remember the bug man? So awesome.

  5. She is just so monstrous! I think that madness as hers is the most scary thing...not even looks.

    1. A human being is made such by their capability to think, when that's gone... well, things get scary. And when the mind-gonner is inhumanly powerful, then the scary gets really terrifying.

    1. The first time I saw the picture I laughed for about 3 minutes. Only Drew would stick her head in a cage. Also, I love how you can only see her facial creepiness through the open cage. Cool, indeed.

  8. Drusilla! Easily the best antagonist on Buffy! There's something to be said for a crazy ass vampire!

    1. Her voice and her mannerisms are indeed memorable. I love the way she would take a long time to turn her face, and her entire body would do something as she turned. Whedon did well ;-)

  10. "Eyeballs to Entrails, my sweet."

    Another Buffy fan post, wooot! I'm glad you did a piece on Drusilla, she deserves it. When I made my Buffy monster posts for MMM I tried to look more to the side characters, but now I feel I'm not doing the regulars justice.

    1. Some of Buffy's secondary characters were amazing. The praying mantis was one of my favorites. I swear the actress looked like the insect even while she was in human form lol

      "Eyeballs to entrails [indeed], my sweet." When I heard Spike say that line and then looked at Drusilla's eyes, I thought of A Clockwork Orange and "the old in-out, in-out." It was just too perfect ;-D

  11. Drusilla, now there is one nutty vamp and she really was so perfectly crazy - just the right blend of intelligent and completely bonkers. I tried to cosplay her once and totally failed :).

    1. Failure, in this particular case, might be a blessing in disguise lol

      And you are right, what make Drusilla so great is that her madness comes equipped with a brain--totally dangerous.

  12. I always look at Drusilla as me on one of my "can't think days". They happen alot btw.
    Speaking of Angel...and Bones. Shelley and the kids bought me the whole Angel set for Christmas a couple of years ago. Love. And I also still watch Agent Booth and every once in awhile get an Angel moment in his face when I think he's going vamp on someone. I'm glad it's not just me.

    1. One day (I promise) I will have to threaten someone with, "I'll let Oma Linda go all Drusilla on you!" I just squealed in anticipation ;-D

      Shelley and the babes sure love you. Only truly adored people get awesome series as gifts. While I was overseas, those who loved me sent me Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and The X-Files. I was a happy Witch for many long duty nights!

  13. My favorite Dru moment comes from the show "Angel" where she is "planting" Darla after she has sired her. Also I will forgive you for referring to Angel as Agent Booth ;)

    1. I wanted to plant Darla a couple of times, myself. I might have even fantisized about pruning her first... with very dull shears ;-D

  14. Drusilla is one of my favorites too! I have to admit that in the Buffyverse Anya was my favorite and in all of Wedondom I have to go with Zoe from Firefly! LOVE THAT WOMAN!! But still hats off to Dru for being utterly creepy as proper vampires should be! lol

  17. Hello Magaly!

    Oh, it's so exciting to meet a fellow Whedonite! They's always good people, I've found.

    I always loved Drusilla- so many dark moments of the show were lightened by one her absolutely bat-sh*t crazy lines and she eneded being the source of quite a lot humour thorughout the show. And they way she would punish her dolls was always so creepy and delightful.

    I was a little heart-broken when she and Spike broke up, especially because Spike got super annoying whilst chasing after Buffy. But what're you gonna do, right?

    1. You know? I think "batsh*t" should be on Drusilla's epitaph. Right along with freaking hilarious and volatile. She is such an amazing character.

      Don't get me started about Spike (as Buffy's puppy)! There were moments when I wanted to jump into the screen and slap him senseless *sigh*
