The Carmilla Webseries: On Lesbian Vampires and Creampuffs

Carmilla, the titular heroine of the webseries on YouTube, should be doomed as soon as she explodes through the dorm room door. This variation on the 143 year old tale has been updated to a 2014 variation of the fictive nation of Styria and Laura is now a college student with a passion for Veronica Mars-style investigations while Carmilla is her new roommate, assigned after her old roommate mysteriously disappears. Colleges are familiar playgrounds for queer lady vamps. There its easy to cast them aside at the end of the story as the heroine’s attraction to their otherness is laughed off as an “experimentation.” But this webseries isn’t laughing.

While the music of the scene is overwrought the emotions at play are not. Callie, often given to big and loud feelings, is muted in her defeat, and Arizona, too often a stony-faced is instead there with a gentle smile and soft expressions of concern.

Review: Grey’s Anatomy – ‘Could We Start Again, Please’

Ladies and gentlemen I’m gonna need a clarification from you. Is this the first time in eleven years that Derek Shepherd has admitted he’s wrong about something in a professional setting? I know he’s been wrong, and I know he’s admitted, begrudgingly, to being wrong about things, but I’m pretty sure it took eleven years for him to get up in front of a group of his peers and eat all that crow.
