So, last night, I was watching 'Vampire Academy' (I'm now reading them, and I loved the other series), with some friends, and it got me thinking.
What is the perfect vampire?
There are four main types of vampire in modern literature:
1. The Twilight vampire
There has been a considerable boost in the vampire book/film industry since the release of this. Many modern vampires follow the original Edward precept of:
- Good looking (with hair that took hours. We know your secrets)
-Good guys=no people eating
-Bad guys= I like A- best
2. The Dracula vampire
Basically Snape, but they drink blood.
3. The hot spy vampire
The do-gooder, often implicated in some kind of CIA operation
-Good with a gun
-Drinks blood from blood banks
4. The vampire-with-implications
Portrayed by Adrian Ivashkov in Bloodlines/Vampire Academy
-Dangerously good looking
-If a spirit user, will have bipolar, depression and alcoholism
- Will have some kind of magic
-Governed by some kind of family
-A good side and bad side
-Takes blood from humans, doesn't kill (unless bad)
And there you have it! Next week will be the part 2, so all is well on that.
