Sir Christopher Lee still exists, because he had too much awesome and too much expertise in transcending mortality to be kept down. The question is, which form/aspect of his should prevail?
Tribute to a legend on his passing: which form/aspect would win...?
-as Count Dracula reborn,
-as the Jedi/Sith ghost- spirit of Count Dooku,
-as Saruman the Even Whiter, because! His Maia spirit lives on,
-as Scaramanga's even more dangerous long lost twin, Scarier-manga, the Man with the Mithril Missile,
-as Death from Discworld, because he can. Expertise, people.
-as Rochefort, baddie from Three Musketeers with Michael Yorke. The character returns, as told in a long lost Dumas manuscript newly unearthed. Also because he's Christopher Lee. Reasons!
-as Lord Summersisle, because the pagan gods really liked the nice toasty sacrifice he gave them.
-as Flay in Gormenghast, because Mervyn Peake adaptation FTW!
-as Olwyn the Wizard in that Robin Hood tv show from the 90s, 'cuz Sir Christopher Lee's career survived it somehow, so why not the person....
-as a notable character in a Tim Burton movie. Such as the Pastor in a Corpse Bride sequel. Or Burgomeister in a Sleepy Hollow sequel. And what kind of characters are some of those featured in Corpse Bride and Sleepy Hollow? The kind that prevail over death. Expertise, people.
-as Sherlock Holmes, because, elementary my dear, the character survived Reichenbach Falls, so there.
-other [please elaborate]
Consider this my "River of Denial" if you will.
Eru Ilúvatar lived in a timeless state,
Then he created the Ainur to sing his magnum opus. Wait….
The one who had most power,
Melkor, sang his section sour,
Ilúvatar got rather dour,
He sang Eä! (he let the Ainur in).
Melkor, in jealousy, he sought to mar the symphony
That all started with the first word. (BANG!)
