Since I need things to distract myself from all those spoilers floating around, I´m happy there are things out there like True Blood and Vampire Diaries. I´m glad I found a *cough* link *cough* where I can watch those shows, although they haven´t reached Germany so far.
Anyway, I guess I have a crush on Vampires at the moment, or, should I say, the crush came back. When I was much younger, I loved Buffy - a lot! I ´ve seen every single episode and was a proud owner of all the seasons on DVD. This is years ago, and it´s nothing compared to my Twilight obsession - nothing! (Did I say nothing?)
However, let´s count what we have: Twilight, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, Buffy, and Moonlight. Side note: You probably know Moonlight from fragile little human's wonderful story Breath Me. It was a TV show but only had one Season, which is a pity because I liked it quite a bit! Side note two: I didn´t include Interview with a Vampire, although they would fit perfectly, because I just didn´t want to write about Brad Pitt ...
But, they all have a few things in common, without which I wouldn´t love them so much. One of these things: The tortured Vampires.
Let´s name them : There is Edward *sigh*, Bill (True Blood), Stefan (Vampire Diaries), Angel (Buffy), and Mick (Moonlight)
All of them struggle with being a Vampire, and they desire a human girl. Love is what makes those stories so beautiful. The "good" and gorgeous Vampire would do anything for the fragile human (although Buffy was far away being fragile..), even being mortal again, to have a long and happy life together *wink*. What makes them also so adorable is that they are so tortured by being a vampire; they hate themselves, which seems so vulnerable. Strong and vulnerable at the same time is an amazing mixture!
Apart from all that, we can easily imagine us being the beloved human. Hey, who wouldn´t love being adored by a strong man who is totally nuts about you, protects you against everything evil, and thinks you are the best and most beautiful woman in the world??
And let´s face it: Vampires are sexy and hot!
Why? Well it's not just because they are mostly played by gorgeous guys, but it's also that the whole mythos around those Creatures-of-the- night is dark but yet erotic. Somehow, the combination of pain and love makes our tortured Vampires so sexy, and this will last forever since they never die! While the erotic part is definitely missing in Twilight, we get quite a bit in True Blood! I´m not sure where the Vampire Diaries will go, but I guess it won´t be as hot as TB. Buffy at least had sex with Angel and later with Spike - although the scenes are definitely not as erotic as in True Blood. So if you want some hot scenes, including biting, blood, eroticism, and sex - watch True Blood!
Anyhoo, let´s have a closer look at the guys:
My first! The Vampire with a soul, and gosh I was in love with him! This big dark guy who always looks as if he´s in pain - and indeed he was! He appeared quite often in my teenage dreams... I was mad that Buffy and he didn´t end up together just because they made this Angel Spinoff!
Thinks of himself being a monster and follows the human girl since she was a small kid, finally falling in love with her. This so sweet and lovely! I liked him and the show a lot, but he hasn't appeared in my dreams. But I included him for fragile little human!
Before I hear a few of you screaming, stay calm! I´m still Team Eric. Eric belongs into a different category of vampires (coming soon). Anyhow, I have to separate the books from the show, and the first season was really nice to Bill! He takes advantage of the new synthetic blood to live among humans, because he doesn´t like to be this frightening Vampire. He would do everything for Sookie - even dying! I like dark guys, brown hair, and, although he´s a bit older than the other boys, I like him still a lot in the show! But the white make-up was sometimes way too white! And, I always have to giggle when he says, "Soooookie!"
Ok, the first thing that caught my eye were his brows!! Hell, they are way to prominent!! But he´s kind of cute - also again a boy with dark hair. The first episode didn´t do it for me, but the second was much better! And he has such kissable lips! Really, look at them! I have to see the rest of the show to write more. I haven't read the books (so far...), so let´s see how the show progresses.
Edward (oh Edward...)
Oh well, Edward, he is really the most adorable, loveliest, prettiest and.... well he´s Edward!!
What makes him so much more wonderful than the other ones? Look at him, just look at him!!! I mean, although I like all the other guys, Edward really won my heart. None of the others made me obsessed and addicted like Edward. I guess it is the way SM describes his personality, and Midnight Sun just did the rest! Besides that, Rob really became the Edward/Robward, and I just adore him an awful lot! Yeah, I guess you know how I feel ...
This was the part about our tortured vampires, and, before I hear something about Eric or Spike, let me say this: they belong in a different category, and I´ll write about them soon! Promise!!!! Next week, or sooner, let´s see ...
Edward is obvious, but who is your favorite tortured Vampire? (Eric doesn´t count here!!) Is it Angel? Stefan, maybe Brad Pitt in Interview with a Vampire? Mick? Did I forgot one??
Tell me girls!!! Say it, say it out loud!
Thanks so much fragile little human for proofreading this post, I love you!! Really do!
