What happened to the sinister murderers that lurk in the shadows of dark alleys and parks, waiting for their next unsuspecting victim?
Since when do vampires sparkle?
Since when do vampires go to high school?
Since when do vampires go out in the FUCKING SUN???
I won't blame is all on Twilight, even if the vast majority of the blame will be assigned thusly. I think the credit for starting this slippery slope of vampire degradation, falls squarely on the shoulders of Anne Rice.
Now I know what you hardcore LaStat fans are going to say...yes I fully admit that LaStat was extremely sinister and 10 times out of 10 he would totally kick Edward's ass, but lets look at Louie for a second.
Louie is basically as emo as Edward will ever pretend to be, albeit a LOT more likable, but he was the gateway for the touchy feely vampires that we're bombarded with today. Like a little joint that opens our eyes to the possibility of cocaine, Louie opened us up to the idea that vampires can have feelings too.
But let me say this...like cocaine, emotionally distraught vampires may seem like a good idea at the time, but they're ultimately going to leave you quivering in a puddle of your own excrement, wondering when you'll get another fix. Cause Edward is so dreamy...go Team Edward!!
Agh...I think I just vomited in my mouth a little.
