I mean, come on, they're both pretty cool. And it would work based off of the canon: Dracula is old enough to be around at whatever time Robin Hood existed. Maybe Prince John is loosely related to him, since they're both royalty. Or maybe the Sheriff of Nottingham sends for him to assassinate Robin Hood as a special mission.
And maybe Robin could end up shooting him in the heart with an arrow shaft in order to kill him.
(ok, loosely based off the canon. Dracula never left Transylvania until the late 20th century, I know. But sticking to the canon isn't nearly as cool, now is it?)
I have a job at a book distributer, Once Sold Tales, where my main job is going through the used books that they get, listing the good ones and chucking the bad ones. As a perk, I get to keep any books that don't list, though normally I don't want them either. But yesterday, I found a cool one.
Growth in Using English: Developing Language Power is a book published in 1944, intended to be used to teach junior and senior high school students their English. The cool part is the vandelism. It has all the highly entertaining scribbles of it's many past students gracing the margins and first few blank pages. Here are a few of them taken from the first page:
IN CASE OF A FIRE THROW HIS BOOK IN TO KEEP IT LIT

Let no one unaquinted* with English enter here.
There's also an unflattering headshot of a man with a fairly large nose, with "Nose Cooper" beside it, and, under that, "AINT IT THE TRUTH". My guess is that Nose Cooper is their nickname for the teacher, especially since the opposite page has another, much better drawn, picture of a guy with a similarly sized nose, wearing a snappy suit complete with flower in his button hole. He's also labeled as Nose Cooper, though another label calls him the "Ford Trade Boy".
My favorite doodle is the one that says, "Turn to page 244". Page 244 has another note telling to turn to page 98, where another message sends it's reader to page 408. It finally ends on page 138, with big block letters saying. "NOSEY".
The doodles continue throughout the book, with comments on every illustration. One of them labels two men and their dog "Tom Donahue", "Ron Cooper", and "Louie", respectively. This would probably be funnier if I knew who Louie was. Given that the man named Ron Cooper was given patched clothes and beard stubble, he's probably once again the teacher.
I really like the character that doodles give a book, and kinda miss Tom Donahue and Louie, even if I never knew them.
I own close to a hundred copies of Vanilla Ice's autobiography (when I learned it was ghost-written by his manager Timmy Quon, I lost all interest in being a distributor). In the seventh grade, I invented a new eating utensil called the "clingting". I ate every meal with it for four and a half years. It involved magnets. On a dare, I once broke a window of a police car with my head, then blamed it on a homeless guy passed out in a gutter nearby and was awarded a medal.
Ever since I saw "The Neverending Story", I've felt that if ever I am truly needed, I will hear a book calling out to me. It's happened twice, and I've ignored it both times. I used to be a vegetarian for moral reasons, but ever since a cow kicked my baby brother in the head I've switched to an all-beef diet. Those jerks deserve it.
In the Scottish-Australian community, I'm known as "Lucky".

INTP - "Architect". Greatest precision in thought and language. Can readily discern contradictions and inconsistencies. The world exists primarily to be understood. Likes monsters, hates chipotle, and never drives with one hand on the wheel. Has a phobia of cantaloupe or antaloupe, but not both. 3.3% of total population. Which is not very much; Adam's special. Maybe special needs, too, haha. Ah, bad jokes. I love those things. You, gentle reader, greatly enjoy reading this blog and will comment on every post. Fnord.
