Webcomic / Elsanna – Bram Stoker's Dracula

Go To

Queen Elsa of Arendelle fought back the heathens in the name of her gods. When her wife Annabella was found dead - made to believe that Elsa had felled in battle as a trick by her enemies - Elsa curses the gods she had fought for and becomes a vampire.

One thousand years later, Elsa signs a trade agreement between Arendelle and England, only to see from a photograph that an English lord's daughter resembles her late-wife.

Elsanna - Bram Stoker's Dracula is an ongoing webcomic by an artist going by the online name "shishiyoukai". As the title suggests, it is an adaptation of the 1992 film of the same name, but with characters from Frozen (2013).

The comic can be read here.

This webcomic provides examples of:

  • Adapted Out: Renfield has no counterpart in this series, Elsa's human butler Kai being the closest thing to one. Likewise there's no brides.
  • Adaptation Species Change: Olaf is a human in this story instead of a snowman.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In canon, the Duke of Weselton was self-serving and try to have Elsa killed, but he was only looking out for his Dukedom's best interest and Elsa had caused an Endless Winter, so he was Obliviously Evil at best. Here, he is a knowing accomplice to Han's Evil Plan.
  • Artistic License – History: In the 9th century, no monarch could have gotten away with an open same-sex marriage, much less a queen.
  • Call-Back: Anna's "Wait. What?" line appears in the story, as part of her thoughts when she first met Elsa.
  • Chewing the Scenery: Elsa could give Gary Oldman a run for his money in the scenes from the 9th century.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: Anna does not have a good first impression of Elsa as she's dressed like a Victorian gentleman, with Cool Shades.
  • Expy:
    • Elsa is Count Dracula's: A warrior aristocrat who drives back infidels in war, but whose spouses were tricked into committing suicide. A Rage Against the Heavens ensues, and they become vampires. Centuries later, they discover, by chance, another person who looks identical to their spouses and then travels to London...
    • Anna is Mina Murray's: A reincarnation of the vampire's spouse.
    • Kristoff is Jonathan Harker's: The Englishman who travels to a foreign country to seal a deal with the titular vampire. However, in this story, Anna is not his wife-to-be.
  • Gender Flip: Elsa as the Dracula figure of the story, a role usually taken by a male character.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Elsa nearly dies taking an ash wood bullet meant for Anna in the heart.
  • An Ice Person: Even as a mortal queen, Elsa has ice powers. When she finds out about Anna's suicide, Power Incontinence ensues.
  • Lesbian Vampire: As a result of the Gender Flip, Elsa becomes this, particularly towards Anna.
  • Like Brother and Sister: In this story, Kristoff and Anna, as Anna is engaged to "Lord Hans Westerguard".
  • Meet Cute: The stalker's version, as Elsa stalks Anna before revealing herself.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Elsa seems to still hold power over Arendelle and its citizens without complaint, the plot kicking up when she signs a trade agreement for the country as its monarch. It is never mentioned what became of the crew of the ship that she stowed away to London (Dracula having fed on them in the source material). When she does feed or kill someone, she takes no pleasure in it and only does it for survival. When she discovers that the girl she hunted was Anna's friend, she feels tremendous guilt for it. Her "malicious" side seems to take the form of an alternate personality that would occasionally try to make her succumb to her vampiric instincts.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Elsa. By the time of Victorian London, she's more than 1000 years old.
  • Signature Scent: Elsa discovers that the break-up letter Hans sent to her was a fake when she compares scents between it and Anna's latest letter, recognizing that beneath the perfumes there was a man's scent.
