Absolute evil (if that exists), bloodsucking creatures, with not a care. You’d imagine Dracula, perhaps. Lestat, the chap from Slayer, and most of Rice’s – thought of whom – curdle your blood.

But apart from Dracula, the first vampire to get to me was Andre LeBrel. Young looking, neat as a pin, warm, and a good guy. Bless Lackey, for since I have not been able to think of vampires as all-evil. There’s Otto Chriek, and the Black Ribboners on Discworld; no Pratchett fan can forget Carpe Jugulum. Then came Digital Knight. I believe Stephanie Meyer’s vampires abstain from human blood.

So after someone asked me a question – I’m wondering. What do you think of them?

Five words you can use to describe vampires? or which you associate with them?

  1. Pale, Fanged, Corpse, Puncture & Tall. Vampires fascinate me. Esp. after reading the quintessential Dracula when I was 12.

    …no Pratchett fan can forget Carpe Jugulum

    Hear, hear! 🙂

    Also, try Meyer’s Twilight series. You’ll like it.

  2. hot

    btw…who are all those ppl u have spoken of in this bloglet?

  3. 1 mysterious
    2 segregated
    3 misunderstood
    4 powerful
    5 voluptuous! (dracula, from dusk till dawn, et al)

    Getting reminded of Lestat’s words – come out, come out. where ever you are.

  4. Ah. Let’s see, five words:

    Young women in night-dresses. 😀

  5. Whoa!
    I did not know we had bloodsucking monk-rel in our midst! 🙂
    When did the saint turn satan?

    Red underlined Cape
    Very materialistic, yes!

  6. mysterious, control, smoke, predator, shadow

  7. @S – I did try Meyer recently! I love it! I have read only two of the four, but I am willing to wait for my next flight to buy the others, books here are so expensive!

    @juggy – people from books, man, maybe vonnaku theriyadu. 😛

    @posion – do you like lestat though?

    @incognito – Thanks. But that’s the typical dracula association. No new age vampirism for you, I guess!

    @Josh – Thanks!

  8. fake

  10. My favourite vampires are Pratchett’s ‘Black Ribboners’, like Otto Kriek

    “und ze cocoa, und ze sinkink around ze fire und ze never even sinkink of ze ‘B’ vord…”
