    The Vampire Fad- Why you hate it or love it.

    First of all, my friend and I(EmoNightmareRose, as you know him) have, like many others, noticed the growing trend of vampires being the mainstream popularity. With shows/movies/books like True Blood, Twilight, and countless other teen vampire 'stories'.
    What do you think of this growing fad?

    I personally HATE it. My favorite vampire related novels are The Science of Vampires, Dracula, The Blood Countess, Carmilla, At Home with Marquis De Sade and From Hell(yes, Jack the Ripper and Marquis De Sade widely rumored to involve himself in vampiristic behaviour.) So to see vampires go the route of a fluffy Shoujo manga is bound to get on my nerves. And I love fluffy Shoujo Manga. My username is Utena Tenjou and my avatar is from Peach Girl. So c'mon, I'm being fair. I love it, but not when it's paired with sexually demented murderous fiends that exist to suck blood.

    I say it's a damn shame when I ask a girl wearing a 'I love vampires' tee, "Do you like Erzebeth Bathory?" and she answers," Who? LOL!"

    Anyway, as for the second category we get Anne Rice and True Blood(which I won't review since I've never seen).
    Anne Rice, on the otherhand offers your handsome vampires through not so murderous intentions, but I won't say she's the best. Her writing is fine for people who aren't fans of vampirism.
    Her philosophy is so so, through years of analysis I've never found out what the huge philosophical atheist rants that her main characters happened to be going on and on about were. Memnoch the Devil, however is a good example of the religion tied in with vampirism. But besides that I've found her writing to have decreased in quality over the years.

    Anywaaay, the purpose of this thread isn't to listen to me(though I wish it was), it's to hear you.
    So discussion relating to vampirism from before Carmilla to Twilight is now open.

    I love it because vampires are cool. Elizebeth Bathory was a real life socio path. Stuff like that blurrs the line, nobody and I mean nobody should look up to bloody Bathory. That woman was pure evil. But in fiction that stuff is just awesome, and manga can do vampires good. Vampire princess Miyu was very scary but was a manga.

    That's why it's gold. The entire root of vampirism is a murderous sociopathic being that sucks blood and the life out of it's prey. That is the line. She is the Queen of Vampires because of it. Killing hundreds of people made her a grander vampire.

    Re: The Vampire Fad- Why you hate it or love it.

    I like True Blood cause it ain't all about vampires, it has mind readers, shifters,
    maynads, and hopefully werewolves will be in season three. I wouldn't really say
    I am into vampirism cause I can't stand The Vampire Diaries and Twilight is okay
    but not my favorite flick and I'm not a devoted fan. I'm more into the supernatural
    aspect of it, which is why I like True Blood, it just has a bit of a psychotic twist
    and I love the movie From Hell. And has anyone ever seen Ghost Hunt?
    Elizabeth Bathory is even mentioned on that anime.

    Vampires are interesting, and make for good ratings. Thus all the vampire shows, movies, video games, and wannabes. Lol Anywho they are quite entertaining for the fact that they always have different rules, some sparkle, some don't. Some turn to ash in the sun, and some can walk out in daylight. It all depends on what show you are watching.

    And I say this because I like vampire shows and movies. My favorites are Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Moonlight, and Dracula Dead and Loving It.

    Signature is a Gwenibe original.

    hey another fan like me...and i thought i'm the only fan here. she's also mentioned in nat geo and discovery as well.

    anyway, i'm ok with this fad only in tv and movies. but i don't like people trying to be them in real life.
    YYYEEEEAAAAAAHHHHH!!!
