I've seen more on TV and read more lately than I ever wanted to know about vampires. I don't see the attraction. Vampires hide what they are, apparently. Yet, according to all the current shows and books, they are found everywhere. They are promiscuous, petty, and evil; or they are promiscuous, brave, and noble; or they change back and forth in character.
The only difference I see between vampires and regular humanity is their blood lust. Yes, pun intended. Yuck, the idea of sucking someone's blood as being a "turn on" makes me want to vomit. Yet, hordes of people follow any book or show about vampires. Of course some people like to play with poisonous snakes.
The reasons I do not believe in vampires are as follows:
1. They couldn't remain hidden in this world full of paparazzi out to break a story first.
2. Someone would start noticing all the people who avoid the sun (and I don't mean the ones with a physical condition that requires avoiding the sun, like those with Lupus).
3. Everyone notices a hickey, so how could people not notice all those neat little puncture marks on other people's necks.
4. A good imagination would come up with something better and more interesting.
5. "Good" vampires is an oxymoron.
All that I've watched and read become boring because the writers can't seem to come up with something new and different and believable, if a person suspends belief. Even with my vivid imagination, I can't believe 99% of what is out there.
No, I don't believe in vampires, and I'm beginning to believe there are no good writers who write about vampires.
