what, pray, does this say about me?!!!

you are a.. LUSTFUL vampire, you like things hot
and heavy! you seduce all that cross your path.
with that, "come hither" attitude,
all are helpless against your sex appeal. Being
a vampire has changed your look on life and you
have decided to enjoy it to the fullest. you
love attention and you sure know how to get it,
in more ways than one. you are dependant on
love to survive, as well as blood. you get
along with almost any kind of vampire, but you
especally get along well with the
"cute" vampires, they are easily
swayed by your dominent personality

A Ventrue, A Ventrue. Or perhaps a toreodor. Never did like them Toreodors too much.
I, Myself, am a Gangrel. Please to make your acquaintance.

There is a mistake here though. A vampire do not 'love'. They do not believe in human love, food and sex. They only lust for blood. The closest thing they come to 'love' is by drinking another vampire's blood and this done thrice will create a 'blood bond' that is the most potent bond on earth.

This would be a Joss Whedonian vampire rather than a Anne Rice or Bram Stoker one and my extensive knowledge of American pop culture says that in Buffy world you would be Spike. Well, except for the fact that you would need to be male, british, dead and with a penchant for dying your hair platinum blond. Then again, if you can stretch so far as to have a vampire alter-ego then the rest of it should be a snap. Spike is kinda hot, look him up on google, but spare yourself and don't read anything that looks like fan fiction. Your eyes might fall out, and I don't mean that in a good way. The picture makes no sense though. The cross should be burning both to a double-vampire-quick-fry. Anyway, that is my bit of knowledge for the day. Need to do reading and contemplate the intricacies of Citizen Kane. Heh, I actually have a film studies class, watching movies for credit ;)

A cross does not affect vampires.
A shotgun blow to the head will hurt. And if a vampire catches a sunlight then its all over.

ah, there you go again, quoting classics. Who said Whedonian vampires follow established vampire rules? The Vampire Whedonum burns holding a cross. Sunlight rule is the same too, but it's amazing how many times the main vampires can just throw blankets over their heads and run around in blazing sunlight only slightly fried rather than a whole mass of nothingness. It is also amazing how many times they are not exactly staked in the heart even though lesser minions crumble into dust even with a stake in their undead stomachs. Oh well, I love my show even with the idiosyncrasies. Buffy should be shown in India, the silliness of the name and the above mentioned slippages apart, it's an interesting show. And when I was blathering about the vampire Whedonum, it was supposed to be a clever reference to Joss Whedon, the creator of the show. So, yeah, that was my contribution to madame hyperactive's alter-ego. No offense to original vampire lore lovers everywhere.

Why do I get comments which are more erudite than the original posts?

I do not speak of the works by John Whedon.
I think Buffy the Vampire gives the most distorted imagery of vampires possible.
And by main vampires, Did you mean the Antediluvians?
There are only 13 antediluvians in the world. They are the most powerful vampires and are only two generations removed from the first vampire, Caine.
However, The Antediluvians have been sleeping for the past centuries so I can only presume that you're talking about the Primogens.
Primogens, Leaders of the Clans, do not come out in Daylight or Nightlight or whatever it is so I suppose you must be talking about the Bosses.
Anyway, the point that I am illustrating here is that Vampiric society follows a Hierachy and hence I do not understand what do you mean when you say that Bosses run around in the daylight with blankets covering them and not dying etc etc.
Oh and another misnomer, Vampires do not die when staked. They're paralysed.
Like I said Buffy gives the most distorted views on Vampiric lore.
Oh and did I mention anything about the Sabbaths?
They're vampire Cannon fodder. The bottom of the chain. They do not know which clan they belong to and hence are regarded by other vampires to be 'beneath them'. They are proud of Being a vampire and boast their skills all the time and hence are a great threat to the vampiric society which do not wish to be known by the mortal world.
Enough yapping for now.

Oh dear. Ok, when I said 'main vampires', I meant the main vampires on the show i.e. Spike and Angel. I'm afraid I have no idea what you're talking about because, really, I know nothing about vampires. I found the show interesting for its themes and storylines, well, till about season three or four after which it kind of went haywire, but nevertheless, I was not referring to Antediluvians, Primogens etc, mainly because, till your post, I knew nothing about them. The typed word doesn't really convey tone, so I will emphasise that I do not mean to be snide or sarcastic when I say that your post was very educational. I still like Buffy, but that is neither here nor there. Hopefully I am clearer in this post than I was in the last, obviously my glibness needs work :) Anyway, that was interesting but I think I'm done now.

well the sunlight thing isnt a classic vampire rule. stoker had nothing to say about it. the german expressionist silent movie nosferatu (which be a movie i like) was the first to introduce this by now formulaic idea. at least i know of no older source for this symptom.

Well soumik, I haven't seen Nosferatu but then the movie must make complete sense.
You see, unlike most vampire clans, which maintain their human appearances even in their second birth, the nosferatus are deformed and ugly. A curse runs through their veins by their forefathers which renders them ugly and despicable to look at.
Hence they must not violate the masquerade and therefore seek refuge in the sewers, lest they be seen with human eyes.
It is no surprise that rats bring a lot of nutrients o the nosferatus as they have lived on rats for centuries.
Now, it makes sense why the nosferatus should be afraid of sunlight. I don't think it is because they will 'burst into flames' but because they have grown so comfortable with the darkness that the sunlight really hurts their eyes.
The movie makes a lot of sense...

Nosferatu is the middle-european (possibly Romanian-Armenian) word for 'undead'.
The masquerade is the law that vampires must follow to remain hidden from humans.

I believe stakes don't kill vampires. Buffy is just popular shit - it means nothing but drivel. Sunlight DEFINITELY 'weell keell' though. The Nosferatu (plural) shouldn't burst into flames in sunlight, they are supposed to crumble into ashes and return to the earth from whence they came - 'Ashes to ashes, dust to dust'.

I thought the Nosferatu fed on flesh, not rats. More specifically the flesh of the living -they were not scavengers.

No vampires feed on flesh, fledgling.
Mantis feed on flesh and blood. Mantis's possess the same qualityies as vampires but are not vampires. They are cursed with having to have flesh and blood in order to survive. They have a different hierachy and different laws of governence although they have to follow the masquerade as well.
Vampires feed on blood. Only on blood. Nothing else but blood. Any clan, any part of the hierachy, they all suck blood. They can have it in a glass, chilled from a fridge or warm rushing blood from a person's neck but only blood. Blood.
Its what sets vampires apart.
