Out from the very entertaining and somehow thought-pondering Vampires Suck
article, a number of people have noticed some changes on how the world view vampires nowadays. When did this blood-sucking villain go soft?
Last week at Comic-Con, the big story wasn't comic books—it was vampires... It's just another sign of the massive popularity of vampires. Yet, like many people who acquire mega-celebrity, the vampire has developed an eating disorder. Read the books. Watch the movies. You'll see vampires who manage nightclubs, build computer databases, work as private investigators, go to prep school, lobby Congress, chat with humans, live near humans, have sex with humans, and pine over humans, but the one thing you won't see them do is suck the blood of humans.
Taking note of the said article, Popsugar
takes us back to the time and look at how our favorite vampires evolve - from dracula to twilight and true blood. Are they sucking blood no more and now more in touch with human emotions (when in fact they no longer are capable of - for some vamps anyway).
What kind of vampire wanders about in daylight, sports no fangs, and politely declines glasses of lukewarm blood? The most popular one in the world! Edward Cullen, played by our favorite floppy-haired boy du jour Robert Pattinson... For a genre born out of the dark side, it's become awfully lighthearted.
