Dr. Jekyll and Miss Allatallahbel

September 26, 2020 at 10:41 pm (Gothic, Horror, Mystery, Mystery/horror, The Supernatural, Vampire novel) (, , )

Dr. Henry Jekyll sat drinking tea in a tea shop in Whitby, Yorkshire.

He had changed his name to Dr. Henry Boleyn after having fled London.

His alter ego Edward Hyde kept spinning out of control.

So he faked his death.

A friend of his got the writer Robert Louis Stevenson to write a book saying that he Jekyll (and his evil alter ego Hyde) were now dead.

Jekyll had contacted the infamous London crime overlord (and a brilliant mathematician) Prof. James Moriarty for help.

Moriarty using his mathematical genius had managed to come up with a formula for a serum that kept Jekyll’s Hyde permanently at bey.

Jekyll decided to move to Whitby for peace and quiet.

All was going well until bodies started showing up on the beach at Whitby.

Their bodies completely drained of blood.

Jekyll worried that somehow Moriarty’s serum was starting to lose its potency and that Hyde had re-emerged again for a dreadful new game of Hyde and seek.

Jekyll tried to reach Moriarty by messenger for help but Moriarty was currently playing a game of hide and seek himself with a London consulting detective named Sherlock Holmes.

One night Jekyll went for a walk along the river when he came upon this vision:

Allatallahbel the vampiress priestess of Baal

The vampiress attacked Jekyll, bit him on the neck and completely drained him of his blood.

On this night at the hands of the vampiress Allatallahbel, Jekyll had nowhere to Hyde.

    So what’s the moral here? Embrace your dark side? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      No, there was no moral here.

      Just something I wrote so I could tell a whole bunch of puns using the word Hyde.

      I have a terrible penchant for telling puns.

      Which explains why I don’t get invited to many parties.

      Of course admittedly there is currently a pandemic going on.

      But even before the pandemic, I wasn’t invited to too many parties.

      And often those parties I was invited to, I was forced to leave early.

      After having been tossed out into the snow by the host or hostess for telling too many puns. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜…

      • Jo said,

        Puns noted and enjoyed. ๐Ÿ™‚ You can come to my parties… Oh, wait! I hate parties. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        You hate parties eh?

        Too bad.

        That could have been one party I was invited to. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Years ago, I was drafting a novel about the original Baโ€™al as an orphan boy who was rehabilitated by Palace medics in the worldโ€™s first facial reconstruction surgery. He is insecure about his looks and wears masks all the time. His treatment of women is brutal and violent. There is a ritualistic sacrifice after each coupling. My Dell Inspiron ate everything. Disc spontaneously overwritten. But people are into being kidnapped by handsome men so it might work. Iโ€™ll remember Miss Allatallahbel, his nanny, when or if I revive it. Itโ€™ll take at least two years to draft because of the research. Would anyone read it though?

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      I’d probably read it.

      And there are a lot of people who are into reading tales involving ancient mythology and ancient gods so they might read it.

      So a disc ate your novel?

      I know how you feel because a Word Processor ate and overrode my disc on which I had typed my screenplay for the final episode of Seinfeld the TV show back in 1998.

      Which was too bad because I thought my screenplay was far far far better than the turkey they actually presented for their final epsode.

      I was actually going to mail that screenplay to Jerry Seinfeld and tell him that his final episode stunk and that he should make another final episode using my script.

      But I couldn’t because my script was eaten by my Word Processor.

      I did write a screenplay for a reunion episode of the TV sitcom Frasier that I wrote back in 2015.

      I never did watch Frasier when it was streamed on TV the first time around.

      But when I lived in Vancouver from 2012 to 2016, they would run re-runs of Frasier every week night from 2 AM to 3 AM (two episodes a night) on TV so I started watching them then.

      After watching the final episode of Frasier (which I thought was the best final episode of a TV series I had ever seen namely because Frasier ended it by reading aloud a quote from Alfred Lord Tennyson on the air of his radio show), I wrote a reunion episode that I posted on my blog in 2015 after I watched all the episodes.

      I tried to find a place where I could send the screenplay but I couldn’t find one.

      The actor who played Frasier Crane and the actor who played his brother Niles both had Twitter accounts so I tweeted the link to the screenplay on their feeds but never heard back from either one.

      Then sadly a year or two later , the actor who played Frasier Crane’s ex-police detective father died.

      And like so many in that cast, they were all pivotal to the success of that show.

      So a reunion episode could probably never be made with him gone.

      • Sabiscuit said,

        Sorry to hear about your screenplays. A lot of celeb social media accounts are managed by publicists, so that might explain things. In addition to which, one of the actors was, allegedly, at the time, busy trying on his now former wife’s tights. She said so herself on telly, so it has to be true. That is why I mostly write my own stories. We do not live in a meritocracy.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        That’s very true indeed.

        We do not live in a meritocracy.

    I can’t help myself but laughing much of what had happened to Jekyll.
    This time he has no where to Hyde.
    Pretty much sums up his name, tho’! LOL
