It Had To Be Done

All rite, I'm posting a thread. Something superficial, cheap, and devoid of squids *sigh*... Tell me, What is your definition of a vampire? Is it just blood lust? Or must you be dead and also immortal? There are a lot of people coming over here and proclaiming that they're the almighty undead, but others that argue they're missing a few requirements. Really, people, let's settle this, without any gwarlock-zapping. What's a vampire?

Dyshade, I think that when you ask that you're asking more than one question. I think that 'vampire' is just as undefinable as 'goth' or whatever.

The technical definition (ie dictionary) is:

vampire noun 1. a preternatural being, in the common belief a reanimated corpse of a person improperly buried, supposed to suck blood of sleeping persons at night. 2. one who preys ruthlessly on others; an extortionist.

I think we all like to think of the first definition when we think of vampires.

I'm one of these weirdos that believe that supernatural creatures called vampires (who are immortal unless killed, allergic to the sun, either sleep or suffer lethargy during the day, drink blood to survive, and may/may not also posess other powers) exist. I guess that's my definition.

However, anyone who drinks blood on a regular basis could be called a vampire. I have a friend who requires regular blood transfusions to manage her chronic anemia and I laughingly call her a vampire (running joke between us).

You started this thread, what's your definition?

Excuse me, I think you've got the wrong person.

My most sincere apologies.

It is late, I'm tired, and I am missing the top half of my thumb from a mishap with a lovely sharp knife. I'll be more careful next time.

What did you think of what I said, after that first indiscretion?

My opinion is much like yours. I really have no clue. Why do you think I'm asking this question in the first place? Many come here and proclaim they're vampires just because they drink blood, while others say they must be immortal. I have no opinion in general. What you do, you do. If you lust for blood, than that can't make you altogether a vampire. Perhaps you simply have blood lust. I'm not an expert on the topic either, that's why I refrain from posting as much as say, Dyshade, or AOCM, or DM, or others of great mental capacity, intellectual worth, and witty repartee. I'm just a simple moderator, looking for answers.

Awww... DP you are too kind.....
I would define a Vampire as a Traditional Belief in which one is killed by one who is one already and rises up from the dead to prey on those still alive for thier blood... as for that booby being afraid of crosses thingie.. that is probably just the zealous christians looking for another way to infiltrate a very Pagan belief
I do not think that they(Vampires) exist in any form on our planet..
those that drink blood from anopther human or even animals are merely fetishists...

So no Vampires do not exist and so any definition will be vague..
I do though believe in other things that may be beyond our perceptions... this is not the place to discuss that...

And Psychic Vampires is another way of saying... "Hey I am an attention seeking little fuck who really wants to scare people into liking me" buncha boobs...
