The answer: I have no idea. I am drawing a blank. Most stories where the vampires aren't mourning over their lost humanity and enjoying hunting humans makes the vampires the bad guys. Any vampire that doesn't act that way, pining for the good ole human days instead is a good vampire that doesn't kill humans.
Umm... Yeah. Tommy doesn't really fit into those stereotypes. While he doesn't strive to regain his humanity, he does strive to understand humans and why he'll do things that, in his opinion, aren't very good for his survival. He also doesn't miss being human and is quite fond of the hunt. The only reason he wouldn't kill is because it's a survival-smart move.
Okay, so comparing Being Human to another vampire story is out. That's probably a good thing too. Comparing a vampire story to another vampire tale might do more harm than good. I'm limiting the range of sight a person can imagine with. Especially since I'm trying to step out of the borders of all the vampire stories that came before.
Now who or what can I compare it to? I still have nothing. No books, no movies, not even a video game comes to mind. Can anyone lend me a hand? What can I compare my story about a boy who is content as a vampire and trying to understand what it means to be human even though he no longer remembers being human to?
