Okay, so before all of you start thinking its all romantic or amazing to be a vampire and that you there will be never ending life and such let me just stop you there. being a vampire is NOT fun! to someone like me who was born this way it is not at all like the hollywood version of being a vampire.
We dont live forever.
We dont burst into flame from the smallest ray of sunlight. (Nor do we sparkle.)
We dont sleep in coffins. (Some of us chose to because in all actuality they are super compfertable and help block out the bright light and loud noises)
We dont fly, or turn into bats.
Garlic doesnt bother us, its just a matter of personal prefrence.
We arent afraid of crosses of holy water, but we do get offended when you try and throw holy water on us and scream die. thats just messed up, hardcore rude, and gets us all wet.
And we arnt even technically excepted by society as a race because many still hold to the old ways and believe we are evil or believe we just dont exsist.
So okay heres REAL life for us.
We are practically get no sleep what so ever. (Due to our natural insticts we would much rather sleep in the mornings till dusk, but many of us still have to live normal lives as students, go to work, or actully do things that are not avalible to us in the night like shopping or athletics.)
We get sick ALOT if we dont have blood (its a bit like haveing the flu, you end up getting migranes, and your weaker than normal.)
We do heal fast, if not alot faster, than normal people.
We still consider ourselves human, and technically we still are.
We have to wear sunglasses all the time in the day light or near floresant lights, because if we dont we get frequent migranes/headaches and the glare burns our eyes. (thats another reasion why night time is our best friend.)
There is no romantic vampire moment like in books, our life has the same amount of problems as yours. if not more.
Its a lonley existance because many of us start to push ourselves further from our friends and family, because we feel diffrent or start getting depressed from thinking the world would be better without us around. (i know from expirence...)
We swich between being very social and extreemly anti-social. (Imagine it from our perspective... take all your teenage emotions or adult drama and multiply that by 100.)
We dont have any cool powers, we do have skills we can learn to perfect but thats our natural way of defending ourselves. (many of us can sense or even feel other people's emotions to the point were it is overwelming and draining. We can sorta blend in with the crowd or not be noticed by people if you dont want to. Or some can manipulate energy -sangs can learn how or accidentally do it when we are really in need of kicking the edge off our hunger, but psi's are born with that quality-.)
We do have amazing night vision skills. (another reasion why our eyes are so sensitve.)
Being a vampire doesnt meen escaping your life or making you indistructable. It actully makes your life twice as hard as a normal person's life.
We are not dead, or the undead. We are just alittle diffrent.
Vampires are not evil. (you wouldnt think a person with canser is, we dont get a choice in what we are, we never asked to be this way, and we shouldnt be condemmed for something that is considered normal for many of us.)
We do drink blood but we NEVER kill people to get it, we have close friends or partners that agree to help, only about an ounce or two is even needed to keep even the biggest vampire healthy for weeks, and they are ALWAYS tested for any known problems by a cerfefied professional who specialises in testing blood. (when you donate at Red cross for example they test to make sure your blood is healthy. vampires will have you do the same.)
We dont all have fangs (most are blessed with them but others may end up having them capped if they happen to be chipped, or if they had them filed at a young age.)
We are extreemly pale. (but it can verie depending on ethnicity Example: im native american and greek so im still pale but i have an olive hue to my skin tone.
We dont burst into flames in sunlight, but we do where sun block -anything above 40- because after about 3-7 minutes in the sun light we do get a pretty bad sun burn. (but thanks to the over active healing it turns into a tan after a couple hours, and fades within a day or so.)
We do have extreemly hightened senses, but many of us who use glasses still need them.
Our eyes dont change color drastically. Only sometimes with our mood, but we almost always have an eye color no one can really label. (like random colors all mixed together, but that are still seprate from eachother. But all real vampires have a dark ring around the iris of their eye -it does start to fade when they havent had blood for a while, but it always is still there.- but dont be confused completely normal people can have this too but it is also always seen in our kind.)
And Most Importantly we dont turn people. even if we wanted to many of us are not going to put someone we care about in danger cause almost everyone who trys to turn dies in the process, or is too weak to survive. few try an succeed, but then what? your wont even be half as strong, could get someone killed, expose us, or worst... so when people say that they can turn you if you meet up with them dont always believe it. many have a different motive and you can get yourself killed.
