    Why is it a popular trend to sympathise with Vampires?

    Okay, I've read Anne Rice, and I'm a fan of her work and what she does but that is different.I think she was just trying to do something new and original, not necessarily say to the reader, 'wouldn't it be cool to be a vampire!'. Over the past twenty years the idea that a vampire is 'an evil thing', that 'it has no soul' or that 'it is a demon' has been chalenged. Vampires are killing machines. They have no souls, and a reanimated by demonic entities or evil spirits. Therefore, they are evil. I'm sick of the idea of feeling sorry for them. It's not that I hate them, no, not at all! I love 'em! I guess the major reason why I am so fascinated with vampires is because and why they make a good story because they are the ultimate villians. I guess i'm sort of a sucker for the the old classics, but I like stories about vampire hunters, and feel that there should be more of them. The problem is is that there are not many strong vampire killing heroe characters (with the exception of Blade, Buffy, and Anita Blake) in fiction. In reference to the author's comment; 'If vampires could transform themselves, on a molecular level, into mist or a wolf or a bat, isn't it silly that they would have to stop there?'. Not exactley. That idea comes mainly from Bram Stoker's imagination, even though there is the legend of the stregoi in Eastern Europe that can transform into certain animals. Vampires transform into bats and wolves because they can only control certain nocturnal creatures such as themselves. All that set aside, the idea of a story about a war between vampires and humans is a great idea.
