(I would also have accepted "What is a pirate? A miserable little pile of swagger!")

But yeah that's definitely an Ayami Kojima influenced depiction of Captain Hook

If I'm not mistaken that's good ol' Captain Hook from Peter Pan. But he does kinda look like a younger Dracula.

That's a really hot Dracula! :)

But I still prefer the one dressed like a 19th century nobleman.

Interesting. Does anyone know of a dark psychological explanation of Peter Pan? I know that there are people who analyze children's stories and fairy-tales and try to find (or basically, make up) a deeper meaning in them by exploring the dark side of psychological themes in the story. You know, connecting the imaginary world and characters to psychological disorders, exploring themes like childhood tragedies, abuse and so forth, thus creating dark retelling of fairy tales.

Some think it's stupid, but I find it fascinating.

There is no need for a darker retelling of fairy tales since some fairy tales have started out as dark before they were tamed by the Grimm brothers and made even more tame by Disney.

Here's a short list of some fairy tales that were originally dark.

The darker stuff has always been my interest.


[The version of this tale that most of us are familiar with ends with Riding Hood being saved by the woodsman who kills the wicked wolf. But in fact, the original French version (by Charles Perrault) of the tale was not quite so nice. In this version, the little girl is a well bred young lady who is given false instructions by the wolf when she asks the way to her grandmothers. Foolishly riding hood takes the advice of the wolf and ends up being eaten. And here the story ends. There is no woodsman – no grandmother – just a fat wolf and a dead Red Riding Hood. The moral to this story is to not take advice from strangers.]

This mentioning of Red Riding Hood is accurate to say the least but the author forgot to mention one very important detail; Bestiality. In this story everything that is mentioned above, happens. However Red is coaxed into bed with the Wolf where the two engage in a sexual act. After the courtship happens then does the wolf proceed to eat Her. Kind of a shame really 'cause if I were the wolf I'd have found something else to eat and kept Red as my mate. Especially if she's the 'well-bred young woman' that the above mentions  ;)

Well, fairy tales were invented to serve as a warning.

If I had to choose between Disney's Alice, Tim Burton's Alice, the Hallmark movie and the game Madness Returns, I'd choose the game without a doubt. It's suits better to my tastes.
