I have always loved Vampires. Since WAY before they were the new 'in' thing. I first read Dracula when I was six years old and I was hooked. So sexy. So romantic. I remember crying with Mina when she had to leave her count for the fiancee she'd made promises to. She loved the vampire so much, but she had an obligation to Jonathon and she went to him. And then Dracula lost his shit and it was incredible to see. Hundreds of years of love had carried him to her and she left him for an auditor? I remember how disappointed I was when Mina killed him. I wanted them to be together so bad.
From then on Vampires were the it for me. Eternal love was more of an interest the the blood sucking. But they came hand in hand and I accepted it all.
Fast forward 25 years and I'm still obsessed with them. Books, movies, television shows. I cannot get enough of vampires. I don't care who tells me they are on their way out. They will always be my favorite supernatural creatures and I will follow them wherever the genre takes them. Evil, romantic, old, young, classic or sparkly. I'm there.
