Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

THIS IS SO MY POLL.

;)

I vote meloncholyish and playful. Both, wherever possible, with as little sparkle as possible. Well, diamonds, yes. They can give me as many diamonds as they want.

George Hamilton (Campy + Classy)!

Melancholy, self-absorbed, even obsessed can be enjoyable, but totally co-dependent, whinny, pouty, and sparkly are NOT.

I also enjoy the highly variable and individualized bloodsuckers from the Vampire Diaries - although to be fair there's a fair amount of "high school angst" even among the oldest of the vamps.

By everything I have seen...
Sparkly and Rich...
Like all those Wall Street Types,
sucking the life out of the country.

If you want, you pay...
But, if you need, you pay more!

I agree with Moueska. I am more of an Anne Rice vamp fan personally. Literary but not bat turney

Dark, disturbed, conflicted and a social hermit. He or she must live in secret, hunting to survive.

I like vampires as they are in Twilight. In the forest and way over in Washington.

The correct answer isn't even there... Vampires, as with any other monster, should be SCARY. Terrifying, blood-drinking monsters who regard human life as nothing more than sustenance and prey upon us like a hunter does to an animal. That's the kind of vampire I want to see.

Justin Cronin: The passage
Good read. A bit YA, but just how vamps should be.

Lestat's personality is the perfect vampire. Self-obsessed and unwilling to even recognize that there are consequences to his actions let alone take responsibility for them. Narcissistic and charmingly sociopathic. Unwilling to admit he actually needs others to witness his wreckless behavior. Without others to bear witness, does one actually exist?

Don't care about the details as long as vamps are scary. Anything that makes them *less* so, from sparkling to pretty looks, is just not right.

It would seem that there's no one else here that remembers the real vampire. All you are discussing are pop culture icons. If you children would care to see a real vampire that will make you wish to never see it again .......sit in the dark by yourself and put on 'Nosferatu'

PS And yes I have checked out some of these newer ones, couldn't make it even half way through without laughing at Lestats teenage angst so much that it was consigned to the Harlequin box that we save for my teenage neice.

Pop culture, you say?

Jonathan Harker: She's alive?
Van Helsing: She's Nosferatu.
Jonathan Harker: She's Italian?

Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995)

Now it's official. Or something.

Dark, mysterious, antagonist. Thus I chose the literary option. But no thanks on the bat part. No need for sparkles or riches, but definitely highly emotional, passionate, and very intense. I should be drawn to him as much as I despise or am terrified of him.

My half-sister taught me what it's like to have a vampire attached to my neck. Ugh.
