  2. I have a story with something like that in it. Though it is definitely tested.
  3. I don't know what it would be called, but I like the silent communication thing. Where the friendship is strong enough that the two don't have to say anything at all, often to the point where a third person in the room feels like they're missing something, not because the two friends are TRYING to shut them out, but that so much passes between them unspoken that it just happens. Sometimes one of the friends will do something that confuses a third person, and the friend has to explain that their friend knew exactly what was wanted/needed and was off to do that very thing.

    Discord

    This morning when I woke up, I tried to hop on the Discord only to find that the whole of Discord was down for me. Then I realized how much I really look forward to chatting with everyone, both about writing and about other things. So I just thought I'd give a shout out to everyone on the Discord for being awesome folks. Even when we don't all agree, we're generally able to move things along without too much permanent drama or damage. Yay us!

  8. In one of my worlds, the vampires were all created by a sorceress who wanted an evil that was self-spreading. It took her a bit to get it to work, but that was part of the trials of one of the main characters. In another world the vampire like people were the result of the first mortal who died to break the barriers of Death's realm. Since he was neither fully alive nor fully dead, he became a vampire (though they didn't use that name for them in world.) A lot of my stories don't go back to the creation myth, however, which leaves it up in the air.
  9. I would have found the story more compelling if it wasn't meant to be Dracula, since Dracula was not meant to be a romantic figure initially, but that's just me being picky. That being said, I did love the costumes! And I've always liked Winona Ryder. It was a beautiful love story, it just wasn't proper Dracula. 😄

  11. I'm on this one! I never go the virus route personally. For me it's almost always magic or religion, though I think I have at least one world where they were naturally occurring. In one story I have a plan to have vampires as the result of a spell that was meant to be beneficial, but had unforeseen consequences.
  12. I was probably 12ish when I read Dracula. Maybe 13 or as old as 14. I actually found it kind of dry the first time I read it, but all subsequent readings I have loved it. I mean more direct adaptations of the Dracula story, not merely anything with a character named Dracula IN it. 🙂 Which is why I said 'about' Dracula instead of 'with' Dracula. But, honestly, I'm happy to talk about any of them. 😄
  13. I don't love this one, but I will defend it. 😛 It doesn't work in all cases, but if something is based on a particular power that only follows a limited number of bloodlines, and two people have that power, there are higher odds that they will be related. Also, it depends on the scope of a story. If there's a large area that folks travel between, and multiple countries, or even cities, are involved, it's kinda ridiculous, I agree. But if a story takes place in a small town, a lot of people will be related, by blood or marriage, to some degree. As you said about the earlier trope, it's about execution. However, this one has to be used with care, I agree.
