AmBear: Let's start by letting everyone know what is Vampires Anonymous?
VA: Vampires Anonymous is a Facebook Like page where we share everything vampire related. It’s a place for everyone apart of the vampire culture to gather and feel at home. We love all of our fans and we try our best to post everything and anything that they might be interested in, as long as its vampire related of course. We post things from styles to jewelry to make-up and costumes, as well as beautiful art and pictures from movies. We even go the extra mile and post historic folklore/legends of vampires from all over the world and the history of them. We’re also getting into posting vampire themed books now which has been very very exciting.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Vampires-Anonymous/270523359726983?ref=hl
I love this page! If you haven't given it a like, please do so!
AmBear: How did you get started?
VA: August 5th 2012. Our page was created because the creator has a strange taste/obsession for blood and wanted to share it with the world. Our lovely Admin Marceline has been a doll; she’s the only real reason the page has gotten to where it is today. She’s the one who reviews all the important stuff on the page as well as the book reviews we get to post!
~.:Marceline: Awww<3 love you guys!
AmBear: Who is your favorite Vampire?
One of my faves as well. Can we say, Tasty!
AmBear: What is the one thing about Vampires that makes you love them so much?
VA: This is a hard one for us here at Vampires Anonymous. We can’t just sum up 1 exact reason why we love vampires. Maybe it’s because of their mysteriousness, all that power in such a delicate form, or that longing look in their eyes, one searching for a companion to share eternity with. Who knows it could be their insatiable need to drink blood and their fangs that draw us to them. Still their beauty knows no bounds and it is distinctively the reason as to why so many people including us here at VA are drawn to them, however we would to have to say that it is their charming charismatic personalities that makes us love them so much.
~bloodsquirt~ “one does not simply name one reason for liking vampires, as there are a plethora of reasons within a single reason.”
AmBear: Do the lovelies at VA have a favorite author?
VA: Well our wonderful Admin, Marceline is always calling our fans her “lovelies” which makes them sound like either her food source or her children which can be a bit amusing at times. BUT! In all honesty it is hard to say who our fans favor, we post many things but we hardly get many likes on those posts, which makes us VERY sad at times. So even if our fans do have a favorite author we wouldn’t really know the answer.
It is hard to pick a favorite even for me, as there are so many great authors out there.
AmBear: What is the one thing about VA that makes it unique?
VA: We stick to our sources and we don’t go around asking people to share our page. People usually find us and we don’t really use provocative photos to boost the likes we get. We keep it simple, classy, and informative. We also make some of the things we post, like collages of certain vampire paraphernalia. We don’t just post about art or post pictures of just anything! We keep it all vampire related. Even though we do that, there are still TONS of things to post!
It is a great page!
AmBear: If you could be a Vampire for one day, what is the one thing you feed on?
VA: *Laughs* that is something we try to do every day. Many of our Administrators identify themselves as real vampires, but not like the ones you would normally see depicted in movies or in books. It is just simply how they live their lives. If we could be vampires for one day the number one thing we would feed off of would be blood. There’s just something about it, you know? Especially the way they show vampires drinking it in movies and TV shows today. It just makes your heart race!
AmBear: Let's say you could choose one book to make into a movie, what would it be?
VA: Well there are a lot of vampire books out there that we would LOVE to see be turned into movies, for example, “Dark Lover” by JR Ward. That would be an interesting movie if it were made. The fight scenes and the vampire world that exist in that book, WHOO! Absolutely outstanding!
Oh, that is a good one!
AmBear: Does VA have a book boyfriend crush?
VA: YES! Who do we not have a crush on? *Laughs.* We love Lestat from Ann Rice’s novels and we love Damon Salvatore from “The Vampire Diaries”. Honestly Lestat will just be the greatest vampire of all time to many of us here at VA. However, Damon Salvatore is an amazing character. He is so dynamic and the way he does things, expresses himself and holds true to his vampire nature, along with the longing and loneliness he has is something we think that everyone can connect to. It’s true, when you’re a vampire you’re not human anymore, you’re different and you have certain urges. A few of us here at VA truly believe that if vampires were real and a human became one, their emotions would be felt ten times more than they would have felt them as a human and that is the beauty of it, as well as why we love Damon Salvatore so damn much.<3
Damon is soooo YUMMY! That is the only reason I still even watch that show :) Gotta have my Damon fix!
AmBear: You throw a dinner party for a group of Vampires who feed on something other than blood, what do you serve and what entertainment do you plan?
VA: Well that is a hard one, since blood is the main food source for a vampire, but since blood is off the menu we’d have to serve something that acts as a blood substitute like blood beats or some sort of fruit/vegetable. Either that or we serve up Life energy that belongs to humans, which might be harder to obtain. We’d have to serve something! We can’t just let our guests starve, that would be inhumane *giggles*. The entertainment we would plan would probably be a few instrumental musicians to start off the evening. Very dark and sad, perhaps even goth or Victorian sounding piano songs and violin numbers throughout the night, not all played one after the other of course. We’d also plan some alternative rock music and the genre commonly referred to as Screamo, where people use screams in a musical way, which is professionally called “Distortion Vocals.” This type of music is very popular and an example of a band that makes this sort of music is known as “Pierce The Veil.” Most of the entertainment would be music that is produced by Fearless Records and Rise Records. The other entertainment we might have planned for the evening would most likely be some sort of play, since the creator loves Shakespeare and musicals. Perhaps even a few of our Administrators would love to put on the show for our guests, as long as it is what they want.
Awesome. That's a great answer. Love it.
