Welcome to “Ask Juliette” aka “Ask a Vampire” a
not so regular semi-regular feature here at vampiremaman.com.
I answer all sorts of questions about life, love, Vampires, parenting, pets, wine, cheese, art, and anything else YOU need answers for or help with. If you have a question leave it in the comment section below or send me an email message at juliettevampiremom @ gmail.com.
So here we go.
Dear Juliette: I’m working on becoming a vampire. Could you please tell me about vampire powers? I also want to know if vampires can change their physical appearance (like getting taller or changing their face) or can they learn to do so? Thanks!!
I’m not sure what you mean by working on becoming a vampire. You’re either a vampire or you’re not. If you want to become a Vampire find a reliable and trusted community of Vampires to help you out. It isn’t all about drinking blood.
As for powers, I like to think of it as Vampire specific abilities or talents.
Yes, Vampires can change their physical appearance as much as anyone else can. Fortunately we can also make people THINK we look different than we actually do. We can’t get taller unless one is a child.
We (Vampires) can also give you sweet dreams or bad dreams. That is one of our most useful tools.
We can erase short term memories. We can give you long term memories. We can lock our eyes on yours and make you do all kinds of things. That is the sure fire defense against Vampire Hunters. We’re quiet. We’re strong. We’re pretty fast for the most part. We can seem invisible.
Vampires know when someone is telling a lie.
One of my favorite traits is that people are extremely attracted to us. Seriously. There is no need to climb through bedroom windows and creep around to find donors. People like us. Of course they do. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Vampires heal fast. We can also heal each other, and regular people (if we feel like it.)
However, we can’t always find our keys, or the mates to our socks, or top lids that match the bottom – just like everyone else.
Contrary to popular belief we do not sparkle (unless we use glitter lotion), we do not burn to a crisp in the sun, we don’t avoid mirrors, crosses and other religious symbols don’t burn us. Sure we avoid churches because we’re not welcome. Some of us are more sensitive to the sun, but that is true with any population group.
Vampires like coffee. Food with a lot of sugar (and carbs) tend to make us extremely sick. We usually don’t eat birds/poultry.
Vampires have a strong connection to animals.
Vampires can see Ghosts, Demons, Angels, Spirits, Fairies, and all sorts of beings most regular people can’t see.
When writing Vampires start words like Vampire, Werewolf, and Ghost, with a capitol letter.
As a rule Vampires are not overly fond of Time Travelers.
As with everyone else, each Vampire has their own special powers/skills. The longer you’re a Vampire the more you’ll learn and refine those skills.
Of course, if you’re the kind of Vampire who has no soul that is entirely another set of answers. I won’t go their this morning. I haven’t finished my coffee yet so I’m not up to that conversation.
For more information about Vampires browse though my blog. There are about 2,000 posts here and a good portion are about Vampires. The other posts are about parenting, cats, coffee, and other assorted unrelated subjects.
Good luck on your transformation. I hope it is what you really want.
Dear Juliette: Who do you think will be left at the end of Game of Thrones?
I don’t know, but if any dragons are left they can send them to my house.
And NOW a shameless plug. If you like fantasy and dragons check out the WPaD Anthology Dragons and Dreams. Available at all fine online booksellers. Proceeds go to support those with MS.
Thanks for coming by. Now I’m off to find more coffee and then vacuum tons of dog hair off of my carpets.
If you have a question or if you just want to know what I think about something feel free to ask.
