"frankenstein is the name of the doctor, you're actually thinking of frankenste--" HE LITERALLY
GIVES HIMSELF A NAME IN THE BOOK
HE LITERALLY NAMES HIMSELF ADAM AND NOBODY RESPECTS IT
okay this is getting a tiny bit of traction and if you're planning on replying to this like a fucking boor to be like "actually he says he shall be THY ADAM," save it, i fucking know
@smollobster FINALLY. SOMEBODY ELSE GETS IT
@smollobster *blinks* I /read/ the book and somehow missed/forgot that...
@IceWolf trans subtext is often easy to miss,
@smollobster I feel like at this point more people are familiar with the film than the book and I don't think he gets named in that, which is probably why this happens =\
@witchfynder_finder a ton of adaptations do actually include this detail tho
@smollobster I really do need to familiarize myself with more adaptations, I mostly just know the Universal movie
And Young Frankenstein of course =P
@smollobster Now resolved to be Adam at an upcoming Halloween
