The other day, I was pondering a profound question… Would any self-respecting vampyre ever really want to clamp the old chompers down on a goth girl? Are the Girls in Black the real Fang Fodder?
Now before the dark community stakes me, hear me out.
What do vampyres secretly crave? Sunlight!
In their darkest heart of hearts, what they really want to do is stand in the sunlight, bask in the old rays just like “normal people.” If their hidden and perhaps even subconscious desire is light… would they really go after pale-skinned wannabee imitations of themselves? I would argue that they do not.
I would say that what a vampyre would really find irresistible is someone who embodies that cloaked craving for sunlight. A corn-fed farm girl, for example, with blonde pigtails who is all fresh air, great outdoors and long summer days would be, to the undead, like tasting sunlight trapped in a vein. It might very well be the closest he will ever come to the real deal.
Big blue eyes, freckles and overalls, just bustin’ out in healthy all-natural goodness. Mmmm..mmm! And no bursting into flames! Win – win!
Wouldn’t the undead prefer a long warm sip of that rather than some black-mascaraed powder-faced tattoo junkie (not that there’s anything wrong with that)?
So, ladies… if you’re really hell-bent on being Fang Fodder… you may want to start by re-thinking the fashion choices.
