Last year my V post was about vampire slayers, and how despite being a vampire fan, there was just something about slayers that I love. This year, I decided to go with vampires. Honestly, it's only natural I do my V post on vampires or something vampire related. Aside from sparkling vampires (Unless they are named Jasper) vampires are quite bad ass.
Or they should be.
I have to say, after Twilight, there were a lot of wussy vampire books. All vampires whined about their lost humanity, moping about the humans they had killed. Whine, whine, whine. Any vampire that wasn't like that was evil and bad. They would kill babies and kittens if possible! The books, unless a series, usually ended with the evil vampires dying.
I wasn't the only one to notice this. I've stumbled across a few indie authors who decided no more wussy vampires and wrote stories with vampires that kicked ass and got some flesh stuck between their fangs. You won't find a moody, brooding vampire stuck in high school in their books.
That's not to say the humanitarian vampire doesn't have a place in books or entertainment. Far from it. I enjoy the paranormal romances with good vampires versus the bad guy vampires from time to time. But, still, sometimes a girl just wants to get down and dirty, sink her teeth into a vampire that is the good guy but still likes to nom on human necks.
What about you? Tell me about your favorite vampire (bad ass or humanitarian) and I'll pick one commenter to send a signed bookmark to.
