Well, I say nice thread. I do find it very amusing.
There are quite a few stories told and I find them to be interesting; there happen to be very good writers on here. Whether the stories are true or
not, is of course very hard to say over the internet. Then again, sometimes it is all too easy to see which onces are in all likely hood, false.
The idea of the vampire has, of course, been romanticized to the point that lots of people want to be one. The immortality and invulnerability to
sickness and the like is what many people desire; which I am sure is abundantly obvious. It would really be all I ever hear people talk of. One must
also point out the mystery they entail as well; I assume that is also likely part of it. The details seeming to be left out, however, seem to be the
ones that would be most important.
Regardless of whether you consider the vampire a supernatural creature or just another living being, these "details" will be there. They would be
the facts of eating and of companionship; when talking of the sanguine ones of course. Do you honestly think, for even but a moment, that vampires
would be able to get by with not killing someone, even once? Perhaps one could get by for a while, but "slip-ups" happen. If you say you want to
become one, I would truely hope you know, precisely, what you mean. The second "fact" would be the lonelyness aspect, as metioned previous. Do you
know what true lonelyness actually feels like? Not many people should, as they have family members left to see; various people they are close to... I
would say that getting around this is easier then the former. You can always try to find someone. The object, in any case, is the fact that people
leave. This has been stated before yet not truely talked about; could you watch everyone around you die? Pertaining to that, would your family even be
able to accept you? I am sure you can see what I mean. I should say even in a relationship of "life" everlasting, everyone was once human; most
human relationships do not last. I do admit that some indeed do, I doubt that anyone truely knows how many, even those who may be of a different
Not a story have we here, but more of an insight, I would say.
I think I will end in saying that you are usually your own worst enemy. A vague reference, as well as a tad cliche, to this thread and certain people
