"I am sick to death of vampires as portrayed as protagonists in stories."

They are properly villains and vermin, antagonists to be exterminated,

not friends afflicted with angst and waiting to be understood. I am weary of friendly werewolves, and disgusted by friendly dragons, and I wonder about friendly witches, particularly when none of them are old crones. -- The Feast of the Magicians | John C. Wright's Journal

Your Say

I'm working on a novel that specifically shows the vampire as a charming but horrific monster that dies horribly. I think I might work some pathetic, easily avoided zombies in there too.

...which reminds me of that lolvamp with Lestat asking "Is he...sparkling?" and Louis responding "That s**t is not acceptable."
