Most of them. There's a couple that would need to be combine to avoid having exceptionally obscure answers.

I would like to see more type-ins for Dionysus--mostly with the last vowel, as I tried Dionysis first and it wasn't accepted.

Dracula was first published in 1897, the ''original blood-sucking vampire book'', would be Polidori's ''The Vampyre'', which was published in 1819.

I agree, the English writer John William Polidori wrote 'The Vampyre' (1819) a really absorbing tale about a man who is a vampire and seducer. Well worth a read.

Wouldn't the dénouement be the resolution of the conflict itself? That's how I understand it in French at least; the given hint rather describes an "epilogue".

That seems correct. Signed: a native French speaker. Although the meaning of words tends to get twisted somewhat when they cross the English Channel, so idk how this specific one evolved.

It's the resolution of the story after the climax. The "falling action" or winding down of the story.

Again, dystopia, at least in it's original sense, is not the opposite of utopia. It is a scenario where things *seem* like they might be a utopia, at least at first glance... but where something is off or not quite right. Hey, we have enough soylent green to feed everyone, that's great.. but... what's it made of? Hey, everyone in this future is young and beautiful and things seem great... but... that's weird.. why is it nobody is over 30 years old and what's this Carrousel you're talking about? Hey cool.. an interactive theme park where we can pretend to be cowboys and do anything we want and nobody ever gets hurt... or do they? etc. these are examples of dystopian stories. Not the Hunger Games, where... everything just sucks.
