Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Mircalla, Millarca, Carmilla


message 4: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments I like Carmilla just like you do Alexander Steriling or Edward. It's all in the kind of Vampire you like.


message 5: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Sorry it was a small weding 20 years ago. However the next girl I marry for sure. I have Kissing Coffins on order.


message 6: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Yup I will get Kissing Coffins first and then Night World. There are 9 holds on Night World series so it must be pretty good. Blue Bloods was not bad. To much fashion stuff in it LOL.


message 7: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Carmilla turns to memory in ambiguous alternations sometimes the playful, languid, beautiful girl; sometimes the writhing fiend I saw in the ruined church, and often from reverie I have started, fancying I heard Carmillas light footsteps out side the drawing room door.


message 8: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Yeah Carmilla is beautiful. HOT! as you say,LOL.


message 9: by Cary (last edited Jan 28, 2009 05:57AM) (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Finished Kissing Coffins,LOL Now I am waiting for Nightworld. Any body know of any books were the vampires are at least 21 and evil?


message 10: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Well I did not dislike it. I just did not like it that much. I like all vampire stories. First of all I looked in the cover sleeve and saw a picture of the old lady who wrote it. She is about 30+ and writing on a Jr. High level. She pretends to know Goth culture but is really Daddys little rich girl. An outsider and wiredo by no means. What really ticked me was her total misrepresentation of modern Goth Kids. Raven judges her social status at school by the fact that she can cut in line at the water fountain. No Goth would even drink at the fountain that straight kids drank from. I have known lots of them and my niece is Goth. They make up their own outfits and don't go to Goth shops to buy stuff. Even though they are teens they live on their own and hang with their own group. They drink, smoke, and dope and are deffinitly not vegitarians. Lots of them just don't go to school. They do not hang out with parents, hippy aunts and such. Stupid band names like "Wicked Wiccas" ,NP. Goths I knew listend to Trance, Industrial like "Ministry". I have partied with Ministry in their Chicago studio. So even though I am old and don't particularly like Goths I hang with all types of people and am not predjudiced by age or culture. I am more into R&B Grateful Dead types. "The Grateful Dead" got their name from a book of Irish Ghost stories. Cool! Mostly it was just poor literary style. Using the same words like Coyly again and again. Alexander what can I say. Same old good guy vampire stuff. Alexander pulls Raven close to him and Raven says she can feel his beating heart. STOP! Vampires are the undead and have no heart beat. Was up with that? Kissing Coffins is a great vampire book for ages 11-13. Carmilla is a teenager, a sophisticated cultered , beautiful one. I was 16 when I first read Carmilla and loved it. So there are cool teen vampires and smart teengers. One thing for sure is there are lots of great vampire books with vampires who are adults. Not just Dracula and Ann Rice books either. I will find them sooner or later.


message 11: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Thats right FFN. I am reading Night World "Marked" It seems better than the other teen vampire in school books. Sorry to go off on a tangent the topic is "favortie vampire." With that I have to say that I have many favorites. Spike from Buffy is one of my favorites also. He is so hip and bad ass. I especially like it when he starts seeing Buffy in his crypt. When Buffy is invisble and they are doing the wild thing. Spike bad boy vampire, yeah!!!!!!!!!! Doin a slayer. tee hee


message 12: by Kami ♥ (last edited Feb 17, 2009 04:55PM) (new)

Kami ♥  C. I like Alexander Sterlilng from Vampire Kisses, Edward from Twilight, Lucas from Evernight, well Lucas isnt really a vampire, well he is kinda and Stefan from Vampire Daries


message 13: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Well I can roll with that. I think Abby Normal in You Suck and Blood Sucking Fiends is a much more real representation of a Goth girl. Much cooler than Raven. I must be the only guy in this group. I love Carmilla and the story Carmilla. She is a girl vampire the Countess Mircalla Karnstien. Everyone else likes Alexander and Edward. So I am figuring everyone here but me is a girl or gay,LOL.

Angela said: Other than tiwlight characters.

"... and then Buffy staked Edward, the end."


message 15: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Abby Normal cool goth biatch. You Suck rocks the vampire world. I just got Dead Until Dark and All Together Dead with Sookie Stackhouse from Charlaine Harris Southern Vampire Mysteries,aka TrueBloods on HBO


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

I agree Cary! I agree. sweet.


message 17: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Abby Normal I don't think is in Michael Moores first book Blood Sucking Fiends. Which is basically anohter telling of the love story bettween Tomm y 19 and Jody 26. But the way Manga cool Goth girl Abby Noraml is in You Suck. In the end she imprissons Tomy and Jody embraced together trapped inside bronze statues until they can finish developing a cure to turn them back to normal people again. Evil 800 year old Vampire Elijah Sopir escapes with the blue prostitute vampire who is now pail white. You Suck rocks! I did not get Charlaines first book Dead Until Dark yet. So I am starting with All Together Dead. It baically gives a brief acount of whats going on when five years previously vampires came out of the closet. Killer books if you like reading outside of the YA collection. Long live Vampires!


message 18: by Cary (last edited Feb 20, 2009 05:39AM) (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Man I just started reading All Together Dead by Charlie Harris. Great books that are not from the YA section of the Library. Halleleuyah! No more chessy kiddy vampire stories with Raven and Manga homo Alexander duffus,LOL. Real blood sucking fiends thank freaking god. Oh bi the way Abby Normal makes Raven look like the biggest posser Goth on planet. Nuff said the end. Abby Normal real Goth chic "You Suck" possers read it

Adrian Ivashkov of Vampire Academy - he's a royalty, and gorgeous and rich and sarcastic.. perfect. my ideal guy ;)


message 22: by Cary (last edited Mar 07, 2009 07:00AM) (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments I like Dracula because he is royalty. Also because he was a strong and sucessful warrior king in life. With 500+ years of exhistance. He has learned all the occult majic secrets of a master Strigoi or Vorlock. Dracula was definitly the King Vampire. Vampires as misunderstood victims of disease is a lame idea and does not account for their ability to levitate and perform other majic feats. They are under the punishment of God for their wickedness in life and after they are destroyed they go to a far worse fate. Or in another more humaine view. With complete destruction they find pease and reconsiliation with God. I like this second view better. It is only fair that after the punishment of being a vampire. Then the creature should be given back his soul and reconcilled with God. Because God is all forgiving as long as you truly repent of your wickedness. I like Dracula because being of a royal house. He has the culture and intelligence of a gentlemen. Combined with years of learning on all subjects. His royal background also gives him an elegant sense of fashion,appearance,and class. He is rather old school. I think Eric from Sookie Stachouse is one cool vampire. Being a guy however Dracula can't be my favortie. That falls to Mircalla countess Karnstien. A female vamp of great beauty and royal blood. She also had the occult majic powers of teleportation. Probably the greatest of vampire strenghs. She was calm,intelligent,charming,and cultured. These traits are what I look for in human women. C

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Lonesome Vampire Bill Compton from Sookie Stackhouse TrueBlood Charlaine Harris Southern Vampire mysteries.


message 24: by Einin (new)

Einin | 5 comments I just finished reading Sunshine by Robin McKinley and I have developed my recent fictional character crush on Constantine.


message 25: by Cary (last edited Apr 28, 2009 05:25AM) (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments "Sunshine" what an odd name for a vampire book. But then again in the earliest vampire stories they could appear in the day. Carmilla is my favorite. She woke each day at noon. I have had a crush on her for 20 years. I guess the idea of a girl who is 19 forever and has the mind of an very smart adult is just to much to resist. I will have to check out Sunshine in the library synopsis.


message 26: by Einin (new)

Einin | 5 comments Sunshine is the nick name of the protagonist. I can tell this much without giving away more than the synopsis - she's a magic handler who absorbs power from the sun, therefore the direct antithesis of the vampire she becomes acquainted with.


message 27: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Wow cool that sounds like a kind of scifi/vampire book. I cand gig it! Is Sunshine in highschool?


message 28: by Cary (last edited Apr 28, 2009 08:39AM) (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Sunshine just needed a spot where she could be alone with her thoughts. Vampires never entered her mind. Until they found her. Sounds cool to me. So let me guess Sunshine can only see the vampire shes loves at night. In the old Gothic vampire stories. Dracula could move around in the day when it was necessary. However in daylight he had no majic powers. Carmilla on the other hand got up every day at noon. Went to bed around 10:00 and sliped out the window to hunt. Then returned to her grave to lay in blood until sunrise. At first light she would teleport out of her tomb and walk back home in a trance. In life she had loved men. But in her afterlife existance she preyed on other girls. It would apear that she had a dual personality, and that the Carmilla in the day was entirely different from the girl who slipped out of the window at night. I am not sure she herself really understood what she was. When you figure this story was writtn in 1870 it is really amazing.


message 29: by Einin (new)

Einin | 5 comments Oh no. Sunshine is around 25 I think. The only high school vamp fiction I've read is the Twilight saga and I vow for it to be the last. I enjoyed it. It was a guilty pleasure, but no more.


message 30: by Cary (last edited Apr 28, 2009 08:59AM) (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Yeah I read Twilight to because it was on the New York best sellrs list. What do they know?LOL. Best sellers list means there are a lot of stupid shallow people, and that's about it. I read Kissing Coffins because people here told me it was so freaky good. It is way worse than Twilight. I like old school Gothic stories the best. Anne Rice somehow was just the same old same old. Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris and the TrueBloods TV show comes from is great. It is like eating pop corn. But really fun. Very much like Buffy the Vampire slayer. With Sookie having afairs with Vampires, Shapeshifters like her B.F. Quinn the Tiger. There are Were-wolves the top of the shape shifter higherarchy. Withces,Daemons,Fairies, and beings from other dimenisons. Really allot taken of Buffy. But Charlaine gives it her own special twist. Poor Sookie gets attacked and shot at and bitten by vamps and weres all the time. She does not know martial arts like Buffy. She is just a tough resourceful country girl. Like in one fight she takes her brother Jasons heavy chain and smashes a guy with it. I have read six out of the ten Souther Vamp Mystery books. Loved every one. When I finish the last four I will have to check out Sunshine. Perhaps I might even peek at a copy if I find one.


message 31: by Einin (new)

Einin | 5 comments I'm working my way through Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles in and out of everything else I'm reading. She's so heavy that I have to lighten it up with other things as I read hers. And she's very wrapped up in Lestat, and he exasperates me to no end. I've got all the Sookie Stackhouse books, and impatiently awaiting the next. TrueBlood got me started, even though the books are much better. I will admit, though, that those books may give no literary value, but they are like eating a whole bag of chocolate once I get into one.


message 32: by Cary (last edited Apr 28, 2009 07:53PM) (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Oh yeah Sookie Stackhouse is pulp but such fun to read. I mean its just entertainment. Its so funy I am reading from Dead To Worse now. Eric has just got shot in the neck and killed the were who was trying to kill Sookie who just met her great, great, grandfather Niall the Fairy. Trouble is brewing in the long tooth were pack and Tom is still a cat,LOL. Will Octavia suceed in changing him back? I am working my way through vampire books in between serious literature like Stienbeck, Hemingway,Winston Churchill, Livy, Tacitus, and some Dickens.


message 33: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Check out this Haddaway Video What is Lovhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsCXZc...? It is an old vidoe from the 90's but it has Haddaway being taken by these two vampire women. Really quite good if you into vampires and new age dance music.


message 34: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments My favortie vampire character who is not a vampire is easily Sookie Stackhouse from Charlaine Harris Southern Vampire Mysteries and TVs TrueBlood series


message 35: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments I have read a little Anne Rice and Lestat is pretty cool. I like Armand from those books. If you have never read the orignial Dracula he is pretty charming himself in an extremely evil sort of way. In hunting him down professor Van Helsing starts puting together pieces of Draculas life. As a young man he had attended the Scholamance. A medievil school for the black arts & alchemy. It was the studies at this school and his continuing studys in witchcraft while he was a medievil war lord & count that enabled him to raise himself from the dead. So Dracula is easily my fovortie Male vamp. Carmilla my favorite girl vampire hands down no comptetion. I am in love with her. However as far a fun reading I like Vampire Bill and Eric Northman from the Southern Vampire mysteries. Pam is the only female vamp I like other than Carmilla. I could dig Pam I think. But she does not have Carmillas gentleness, charm, and warmth, or her aristocatic background. By warmth I mean that Carmilla is warm to the touch and can walk in the daytime. So although Pam is super Carmilla is easily my personal fave.

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dracula This site is real good because it analyses Dracula briefly, and why it is so good. It's the form in which Dracula is written a series of diary entries,and news paper clippings. Check it.


message 37: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments There are two Wikipedia descriptions of Dracula this one is better I think http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Count_Dr...

Cary did you ever finish reading the Night world series? I'm not sure if its your type of vampire series. You seem to like the Dark vamps more, right? If you did read the series...did you like it?
I read it about 10 years ago...




message 39: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments No I had got the books from the library and was about to start. That's why I said I was reading Marked. As soon as I cracked the book I got embarassed cause it just was not my thing. I do that allot I will order a book, based on what I hear on this site. I have learned my lesson. I look books up on the internet now or read the library synopsis before I order one. Man " Dead to the World" is the rasiest Sookie Stackhouse yet. Eric got all over her and she can barely get up and hobble to the shower the next morning, LOL.


message 40: by J.D. (new)

J.D. Stroube LOL yeah, I didnt think that Night World was your cup of tea...I read the series when I was about 13 years old and liked it...but I was 13 yrs old. LOL I think the series is probably too innocent for you.


message 41: by Cary (last edited May 24, 2009 06:00AM) (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Yeah the geneation gap really shows. When I was 13 or 14 I read Carmilla in the Catholic Boys Prep School I went to Cascia Hall. I never read Dracula because I thought it was like that stupid Bella Lagossi movie. I can remember when I was around 25 reading Dracula for the first time. I was amazed at the books depth and perception. Dracula is considered classic literature by the way and Carmilla too. Anyway I thought Dracula would be some stupid horror story so I read it for amusement. Thats when I really started reading Vamprye stories. Then I looked up Carmilla and read it again, and realized it was about way more than a vampire girl. Those are the type vampire books I look for. Stories that use a vampire story as a vehicle to tell a story about something else entirely. Like the duality of human nature. Carmilla is kissing Laura all ovah!! and telling her they will be together for ever. Ho ho I did not get that at age 14. Now they are so blatant about sex in vampire stories it just socks you in the face. A kid could not fail to pick up on it. I think I like the more subtle variety of vampire stories. That are just not out and out porn. Like Sookie "Dead to the World". Man that is strait up pulp porn. It redeems itself with an interesting story line. I can't believe all these people are getting killed just because the witch wants Eric for a boy toy. To much! tee hee hee.


Michelle (In Libris Veritas) (shadowrose) I suppose my top favorite is Armand from The Vampire Chronicles. For some reason he just appeals to me.


message 43: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Wait I thought Armand was from Interview With the Vampire. Hm I could be confussed. Well everybody knows my serioius favorite is Carmilla. Dracula is very impressive and way bad but I could not say I like him. I like Vampire Bill in TrueBlood/Sookie Stackhouse.


Michelle (In Libris Veritas) (shadowrose) Interview with the Vampire is the first book in The Vampire Chronicles, so you are right.


message 45: by Cary (last edited Jun 12, 2009 01:26PM) (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments Oh wow I had no idea that Anne Rice had made her books into a series. I knew she had written a book after interview. But I thought it was just a sequal to book one. Man everyone is writting series now days. Except the book You Suck. You Suck is a comedy and a parody on vampires and their attraction to Goth kids. Abby Normal the goth girl hero. I San Francisco's most killer accurate goth chic in a book ever. She makes goth chics like Raven look like the posseurs they are. You Suck is very funy and it is a single book. It was originally written as Blood Sucking Fiends. Without Abby in it. But Abby lends so much depth and fun to the story. Its really better to just read You Suck. Serious you'll love it. You Suck by Michael Moore. When you write a book as a stand alone book. It is usally a much better piece of work. Example Dracula. A sequal to Dracula like they have in the movies is just stupid. I can't think of any other single stand alone modern vampire books. Check out Horrormasters.com vampire section and read Mystery of the Compagna. Or The Tomb of Sarah. There are lots of great short stories at that site. You might like John Polodoris The Vampyre. But Lord Ruthven is not a sweethart


Michelle (In Libris Veritas) (shadowrose) I'll check those out, I was going to read some at work but I couldn't concentrate I was so tired. I've wanted to read You Suck but I get sidetracked at the bookstore.


message 47: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments I get all my books from the county library. I read a allot. So I can't afford to buy every vamp book that comes out. I just got Dead and Gone the lastest Sookie Stackhouse from the library. The trick to geting popular books at the library is going to the online catalgue. Finding a copy that not checked out or soon to be returned and checking it out to be picked up at the library closest to you. The only vampyre books I own are the important ones. Dracula, Carmilla, Carmilla as a part of Dr. Hesselius case files In A Glass Darkly, and The Phantom World which has excerpts from the Magia Posthuma. Plus I have a guide to the first season of Buffy called The Girls got Bite, and one on Angel. Those were gifts from a librarian I know. I think I am going to get the Penguin Book of Vampire Stories. It has all the classics. The Vampyre, The Mysterious Stranger,The Tomb of Sarah and other classic stories. If your to tired to read the short stories at work. Print them out on the office computer, LOL.


Michelle (In Libris Veritas) (shadowrose) I didn't think about that! I could print them out! I'll have to remember that for Monday.
I have a slight book buying addiction, well it's actually rather large, and if I read it then I have to own it (if I like it enough that is). So going to the library is kind of pointless for me because I'll end up buying the book later. Plus the library closest to me is pitiful...


message 49: by Cary (new)

Cary (vortigern) | 804 comments I have a book buying addiction too. Which extends far and way beyond vampire books. I could dig having the works of Julius Ceasar, Livy, Tacitus, Jim Corbetts books on man eating tigers in India. A couple of Wintson Churchills books. I just dont have that kinda a cash or room. I wish I could have a small personal library. I mean a whole room of the house just a library and reading room.


Michelle (In Libris Veritas) (shadowrose) I completely agree, one of the goals of my life is to have a personal library. I would love to have a library like the one of Beauty and the Beast but it would take forever. I'm trying my hardest to expand mine, but I too don't have the money.
