I’ve been thinking lately… I don’t get where people thinking vampires are sexy is a good thing. I just don’t. Dracula was meant to be on the scariest creatures ever created, and yet over time Vampires have become something to be celebrated. worshiped, even.
I’m sorry, but to me, vampires are not meant to be sparkly. I find no appeal whatsoever in the character of Edward, or the salvatore brothers. Vampires are meant to be the scare you in the middle of the night, drain your blood, not fall in love with you, not have feelings, scary.
I don’t get why someone would think that all because a vampire is technically the same age it would be ok when that vampire had been the same age for goodness how long. I don’t even remotely find that appealing. Actually, I find just more than a little creepy and maybe even a tad bit disgusting.
I don’t know when or where vampires went from being something to be scared of to romanticized, but my goodness it’s just ugh. frustrating.
then again… vampires have always been romanticized. Just in different ways.
