This seems rather delayed a response, but I would like to prove you wrong.
First of all, don't bash me for saying this, it would not be appreciated. What I am about to say is truth, and I have spoken to people who have
witnessed me going through the following. They believe that it is true.
I am one of them.
How do I know? I'll tell you.
My first realization of the fact that I am
a vampire was in April of my thirteenth year of this life (I am not sure how many lives I've been
through, for I have opted to avoid any painful discoveries from past-life-regression). I was on an airplane (waiting for permission to taxi to the
runway), and all of a sudden I got a strange burning sensation in the back of my throat, and I became very thirsty. I am not sure how, but I knew that
someone at least three rows behind me and five seats to the left was bleeding. I turned to my friend who I was traveling to England with, and told
her. Sure enough, the flight attendant call-light illuminated over a seat three rows back and five seats to the left, and the man in the seat was
complaining of a nosebleed. It was not the first time I had sensed blood or gotten a burning sensation in the back of my throat when around it, but it
was the first time that it was confirmed to be more than just an iron deficiency. This same event (not in the same setting, of course, then it would
be simply circumstantial) kept occurring for quite some time, and it still does. My head generally snaps in the direction that the leaking blood is
located at, and my friends...or, former friends before they determined I was a freak...all thought I was so "sketchy."
Also, I do not appreciate the embellishments and discrepancies of the poster previous to your post's symptoms/traits of vampires.......
"The true vampires have "safe" houses." FALSE.
We do not. We enjoy the company of those who understand us or are like us, but we do
not actually have clubs. That is also a Hollywood vision.
"...blood donated to them." FALSE.
We do not have blood donated to us, nor do we have
to have blood in order to survive. We can
go for up to ten years without decent "feed".
"...and they choose not to let us ("regulars") know of their existance for fear of retribution." AGAIN, FALSE.
I, and those who I
have discovered to be like me, do not care what others think. We tell those that we trust and know well enough to not reject us.
"Lets say a skinny "vampire" who weighs in at 120lbs can pick up a little over twice his weight and have nearly no muscle mass."
At the age of thirteen, I weighed 120 lbs. and did not weight lift often at ALL. Possibly lifting weights once a year to test my
strength. I could pick up 150% of my weight, which was only about 170 lbs. Not as impressive as you seem to imply.
"...due to their skin condition they get quickly sunburned (even staying out in the sun for ten minutes could be permanantly damaging.) They will
get first second and thrid degree burns." WORST EMBELLISHMENT IN THE WORLD.
Not all vampires have a skin condition, nor does sun damage
us. I rather enjoy the sun, for it feels good against my normally cold body. I get tan easily, and it is almost impossible for me to burn. Put my hand
in boiling water, and the worst that I feel is a sting. No burn, no nothing.
"Although they have a lengthy life span..." FALSE.
We live normal lives. 120 years is OLD. OLD OLD. OLD FOR HUMANS, OLD FOR US.
"Do they drink blood? Yes."
Sure, but it's not necessary. Ten years without feed is easily tolerable. We can eat human food and vegetables
As for the section about our "evolution" or whatever...? THAT WAS AWFUL. It CAN be genetics, but it's not impossible to be bitten. You don't
evolve to us. It's more of a spiritual thing.
