Vampires are real. They are also not half so deadly and frightening as people think they are. They're just undead ex-grammar school professors with a penchant for good grammer and an allergy to garlic. And it's Vampyre. Please spell it correctly. That's a sure fire way to prevent them calling round to correct you. Which will only lead on to a lengthy and soul destroying lecture
Vampires does exists yet they're different that the one you see in books or movies. There are two types of vampires - energy (psychic) vampires and sanguinarians - both feed with energy, yet first type use psychic techniques to drain it, second type drinks blood.
They don't fly, they're not immortal, they can't be burned by light and garlic won't work for them .
So i would think they excist and watnot but if there is one out there i would like to be turned ..or what evr you do to change human into vampires ...if you want my reasoning the just let me no if you intrested you no what to do.
I would say that it is up to the writer blondepoet.
Vampires are a myth based on some reality. There was, for example, an incident that happened in Greece around the turn of the 19th Century. Understand first that the corpse had been around as a corpse for a couple of days and was about to be buried. It was also during a hot summer. As it so happened when the priest put his hand on the body and no doubt pressed a little on the rib cage the corpse made a groaning sound. This of course scared the hell out of the villagers and the corpse was staked and had his head removed and filled with garlic before burial. The head being buried between the legs of the rest of the corpse so that he wouldn't go walkabout. The scientific reason for the corpse groaning? Hot weather and decomposition leading to gases building up in the chest cavity.Pressure from the priest meant the gases had to go somewhere. Incidents like this have created the vampire and have kept him going.
Vampire fiction can be fun and entertaining. A lot of people like to keep it that way and I see their point.
I should also mention here that because of the myth being around so long that there are people who genuinely do believe they can live on human blood alone. These people are mentally disturbed. There have been serial killers in the USA with this sort of blood fixation. In truth you can't really live on blood alone but you can live a while without proper food. You can live long enough to do damage to others.
