I want to suck your blood...

Vampires are so cool, I'd say they are my favorite mythological figure. They are mysterious, sexy, beautiful at times (Twilight), their pale and seemingly fragile yet extremely deadly. I've always been a fan of Vampire movies, my favs are Interview with a Vampire (Tom and Brad could not be any sexier in that film) and then there's Bram Stoker's Dracula with the awe so dark and mysterious, Gary Oldman. Lost Boys is also a great flick for the younger generation. In that film you don't necessarily want the Vampire's to win, Keifer Sutherland and his gang of vamps are malicious and scary.

Female vampires are intriguing too. When I was in high school I did a vampire role-playing game during Halloween and I came as Nadja, a female vampire. I don't remember the story around Nadja, but it was a fun experience. I got the idea of her from a movie of the same title.

From movie to movie or story to story they're always differences between the vampires capabilities or what kills them or if they fly or turn into bats or even sometimes if they have fangs or not. In the Twilight series they don't have fangs and the can go out in the daylight but their skin glows when they do.  I like how mythology of these creatures can change from story to story.  Maybe I'll take a stab at coming up with my own backstory.  Love between vampires and humans is always been a hot idea to me.  It's so forbidden and dangerous. Twilight really has turned the notch up on that concept, the mysterious forbidden territory of true devotional love.  I just can't get enough of it, I can't wait for the next movies to come out.

  1. Kate! How in the world could you write this entry without a mention of True Blood. OMG! That, to me, is the hottest vampire/human love story yet. I can't wait until next season!!!!
