TEAM PHOENIX ENTRY: Femmequixotic "Exegesis" Title: Exegesis Author:femmequixotic Team: Phoenix Genre(s): Alternate Reality *Hover/Click for Games Definition of Alternate Reality* & Romance Prompt(s): The Root of All Evil Rating/Warnings/Kinks: NC-17; minor character death, religious/theological elements* Word Count: ~49,150 Summary: Every culture has their tales regarding creatures of the night. A/N: Many thanks and much love to cursive and ze_dragon for their beta work, and a huge, huge, huge debt of gratitude to ze_dragon for Catholic-picking above and beyond the call of duty. Credit for various aspects of this fic must be given to Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and Florescu & McNally's In Search of Dracula. Inspiration was also drawn from various film references including Nosferatu, Dracula (1931), Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), and Van Helsing. Further elements were taken from Gypsy Law: Romani Legal Traditions and Culture, A Handbook of Vlax Romani, and the various writings of St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Augustine. Disclaimer: If I owned them, Deathly Hallows would have been written so very differently.
