I was very interested in this thread, seeing as I bothered to read it. I feel compelled somehow to share my own thoughts on this matter.
Let's say vampires are real. If we analyze the myths surrounding them, it is not that difficult to find that they are...
1st- Can't go into sunlight. This is a problem now isn't it. Perhaps it is because they are not of this world (the same reason that they can't have
a reflection or be captured digitally) or perhaps this is something involving their hunting, so it's just assumed that they can't come out. Maybe
it's only that they can come out. They just prefer night. After all, just like a criminal, it's easier to do things unnoticed at night.
2nd- Coffins? Ah....the bed of a vampire. Or...maybe not. Who wants to sleep in something a dead person goes into?? Vampires would rather pretend they
are living...not act like Dracula...that's no fun at all
3rd- Garlic? Yes please I actually enjoy it on food frequently. I mean seriously?
4th- Crosses? This probably originated from the fact that religion was a huge thing in the most popular time of vampires. Religion could protect from
anything at all. So relics and holy water are prize weapons.
5th- Stake to the heart. Well now...who would be able to live after that?? Or maybe it's just a paralyzer and the only way to kill a vampire is to
slice it up and scatter the pieces or maybe burn it until there is nothing left to heal...
If I missed any of these most known points of vampires please tell me and I'll be happy to banish these myths. There is just one more point I'll
leave with....if there is a creature out there that was once hunted almost to extinction...wouldn't it be wise of this creature to create myths so
absurd that nobody would hunt it anymore...That way, they could just live in peace.
Just think on it, and get back to me. I'd be pleased to answer anything at all.
Oh and another thing...."covens" seriously an ancient word. Stephenie Meyer had her own imagination nothing more. Don't believe everyone popping on
here and pretending to be a vampire. (Yes I know that was an OLD post but I felt the need to comment on it)
