Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Romantic poet of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, wrote some pretty awesome poems about lesbian vampires and the "stately pleasure-dome" (sounds hot!) of Xanadu. Some sexy facts: Coleridge was totally addicted to opium. He had a weird love / triangulated desire /menage a trois setup with William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy, saying things like, "Tho we were three persons, it was but one soul" (sounds hot!). For his makeover, I thought I'd evoke a thin, waifish, but still sexy heroin addict. Also, I always thought "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" could have been a lot sexier without the ugly, boring old Albatross. A peacock is much prettier, don't you think? And it contains a dirty word!
