    ok, inspired by another recent forum lol, as i personally prefer vampires in over-all kewlness and stuff over zombies; what would you do if your town or city were suddenly revealed to have a vampire presence or growing problem?

    would crosses work against them? vampire legends are FAR older than christianity.... would garlic or was that just the invention of Bram Stoker? if that guy's to be believed, then could they walk in the sunlight like Dracula? would they be sexy Anne Rice vampires or craven animalistic predators?

    if they're sexy Anne Rice vampires, count me in- i'd do whatever it took to join 'em :p

    Vampires can walk in the sunlight. They use a special sunblock called "Sundead." I saw this on TV so I know it's true icon_eek.gif

    Vampires are often pretty hot in movies. They have cool mind powers and super-strength. I'd probably look to be turned if that seemed feasible over just being lunch, lol. icon_twisted.gif

    Since I am HIV+ I think I would be safe from vampires, unless they have a death wish.

    It would entirely depend...if it was a Tom Cruise vampire, I'd run like hell. If it were a Brad Pitt vamp, I might just trip and fall.

    And if you're too young to know the Interview With A Vampire, reference...bite me - you suck. icon_cool.gif

    The Vamps in "The Lost Boys" were pretty hot, too. I'd be torn. I think I'd get bored with living forever. And all the rules! No sunlight, no Holy Water, etc., etc. Too much to keep track off. And how are gay vampires supposed to exist without mirrors?!? Oh, the humanity!

    Then again, I've always wanted to fly.

    Oh, and to "sire" some hot guy would be pretty hot. I guess the upshot would be if a guy ever rejected me, I could have him anyway. Hmmm, where do I sign up for this?

    I think "the Vampire Lestat" by Anne Rice might be one of the sexiest, most romantic books I have ever read.

    Oh, this topic is close to my ken of knowledge....

    Being a vampire would definitely have it's advantages and disadvantages.

    On the plus side, you'd be nigh immortal, because there are ways that a vampire can be destroyed, so you wouldn't be going to the beach and work on your tan anytime soon. Depending on what mythos you follow, you wouldn't be able to visit anyone without an invite, cross running water, bear the sight of crosses and garlic, be able to tolerate a bouquet of roses as a gift or consume food and drink. On the plus side, you would have a set of preternatural and supernatural gifts and talents, such as thought control, mesmerism, flight, strength, speed and transformation, all good tricks to have.

    On the bad side of things, you're going to be around forever, so the people that you know are going to die all around you. The other vampires will be with you forever, but damn are those relationships stressful and full of a never ending stream of drama for your mama. Backstabbing, rumormongering, muckraking, mudslinging, politicking and vendettas are going to be running all over the place, so you wouldn't know who to trust in the long run. You'd be a former shell of yourself, not able to feel what you used to feel quite the same way. You'd have a recollection of what they were, but over time they fade or distort into something that only resembles a macabre version of that feeling. Not exactly healthy.

    Then there's the diet. Nothing but blood, and it'd be a terrible kind of hunger you'd get that feels like your stomach is being kicked. Get carried away with that and you'll be a glutton and call a lot of attention to yourself. What if your hunger started to focus on a specific kind of blood, the type that's not very common, like virgin Sicilian men? Fly all the way to Sicily, or hope you run into a Sicilian here in the states?

    Now if there were a problem with them in town? Yeah, sure, I'd be tempted, maybe even curious. Ultimately, though, I'd have to fight against them. I have a sense of justice, I suppose, and if they were killing my friends left and right, dammit, I'm stopping them.

    OH PLEASE!!!! Vampires! Even the movies and TV shows are retarded. Its all like lonely girl falls in love with vampire, gets bitten, becomes vampire, has a bisexual/ lesbian experience with another female vampire than gets slain by some hot guy lol. You can switch all the men with females if you want all the same hahahahicon_lol.gif

    I'm shocked.... shocked, I tell you!

    I can't believe no one has mentioned Buffy. If Vampires were in my city feasting on the innocent, I would be the Slayer (or perhaps the Slayer's tech-savvy sidekick)

    That totally reminds me -- and I'd forgotten -- that when I was in secondary school (high school) a group of us who later proved all to be gay used to play Vampire: the Masquerade.

    The dichotomy of the carnal and the sophisticated, the inversion of power and notion of something forbidden and abominable must have seemed quite compelling to us at the time.

    The tragedy in those games was that our counterculture was based on an shared repression. If only we had talked about the elephant in the room, rather than those diversions, we might have been happier. I left that school for that very reason. One of us might still live.

    Thankyou for reminding me.

    See the excellent film "Fright Night" for a step-by-step approach to extinguishing a vampire.

    I'd suck all of you...

    I mean, I'd turn all of you into vampires. But warning, I don't bite your neck. I bite your inner thigh.

    This is really terrible, only one person mentioning Buffy, the vampire slayer (that sux, i wanted to be originalicon_confused.gif ), anyway, because it's one of my favourite series, i would be definitely SLAYER. Just because i can already fight with weapons (sword and stuff are my favouriteicon_cool.gif ) and vampires are usually psychosicon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif and i would be pissed if some vampire sucked somebody i know/likeicon_biggrin.gif

    I'm not quite sure that's true really. Legends of vampires arose in the 17-18 century. There are many origins of the legend, it was an explanations for the pheumonic form of the bubonic plague and TB. As decomposing corpses burp, break wind and sigh, and because they had breakdown of the lungs, it would appear that they had blood around their mouths.

    I watched 30 days of night too... I'm glad I had someone to cuddle upto too icon_smile.gif

    Is anyone else a Christian on here?

    No, they are like Species, they can tell by looking at you with x-ray vision, to see if if you have healthy blood to drink.

    Depends, if it were Anne Rice vampires. I might think of becoming one. I love the vampires in Queen of the Damned(the book) to be ancient and all powerful would be cool as hell.

    otherwise....

    I would have to join up with Buffy and the Scoobies and fight the forces of evil.

    I would fight them with everything I learned from "Buffy", with the witty banter included!
