Rules & Questions

Most blog awards are very personal things, and to formally receive the award you have to answer random questions and/or offer random facts about yourself. The Vampire Lover Blog Award is different, in that the questions and facts should be about a vampire. There are various ways to do this:
  • If you, the recipient, are a real-life vampire (and I know at least one blogger who is) then you may choose to talk about yourself.
  • If you are an author of vampire stories, you may allow one of your vampiric characters to receive the award. (This may also be a way for you to explore and develop aspects of character in works-in-progress.)
  • For fun, you may select a vampire from film and/or literature and imagine how they would answer the questions.
  • Or, you could imagine yourself a vampire, or create a new vampiric character solely for this purpose.

There are no restrictions about what kind of vampire you are. Perhaps you are a superheroic alpha vampire in search of his one true love, or perhaps you are an evil femme fatale who feeds on psychic and/or sexual energy.

The Questions
Questions submitted, and credits:
  1. Does living as a vampire have the same appeal as prior to being turned (if you’re that type of vampire)? If you had to do it over, would you?
  2. What aspect of humanity or being human have you lost or used less – or has diminished the most?
  3. If you live forever, or for thousands of years, and are difficult to kill, and are very strong and powerful… how do you not become a sociopath? And go off and start doing anything you want and acting on any impulse?
  4. Is it true you have to be an old vampire to fly or teleport (being one place, disappearing, and showing up wherever you want to)? Or, if you were turned by a very old, strong vampire, does that give you the ability to do those things like flying or teleport that other vampires do?

  10. I am a vampire I have been one for almost 20 yrs now I have told one person my bff brooke shes not a vampire I am great at being one I was born one its hard for me.I am scared if they know im a vampire they will hate me if anyone knows why shouldn’t be scared tell me cause the last place i lived they found out and they tryed to kill me.

    • I want to tell you to relax and take a deep breath – but maybe you’re the kind of vampire who doesn’t breathe?

      If you truly wish to tell us your story, then do so. I suspect however that you’ve been locked in a crypt for the past twenty years with only a 1990s cellphone to keep you company.

      Or maybe I’m wrong and ‘vampire’ is code for ‘bisexual trans person’, in which case I wish you all the best and hope you find freedom in this world of ignorant bullies.

  11. Ya thx that was o much help and I do breathe where I lived befor someone tried to prove I was a vampire and they didnt stop and everyone found out and got scared they found out because I hate garlic and thats how they found out them I moved away I dont know if they are still looking for me or not I think they are thought no sure my real name is harsh angle because I look pretty but im a vampire.
