Happy Valentine’s Day! As part of the Precious Monsters Vampire Blog Hop, I’ve committed to posting about vampires today.
Vampires are pretty popular when it comes to fictional couples. Sookie and Bill (and Sookie and Eric) from “True Blood” are popular at the moment – but my favorite is definitely Angel and Buffy from “Buffy: the Vampire Slayer.” What makes this romance so appealing to fans?
The aspect of fate associated with the couple is very strong. A powerful vampire and a young vampire slayer generally charged with killing his kind certainly makes for an appealing forbidden romance. As a fan of the couple, I want them to overcome the challenges they face, making their trials all the more appealing – and heartbreaking.
I find the relationship between an immortal and a mortal rather fascinating. Whether in mythology or modern entertainment and fiction, why do mortals and immortals fall for each other? Perhaps it’s because love doesn’t see that sort of line, even if society and common sense do. While many people think such a pairing isn’t meant to be, I can’t help but always think true love is a greater force than other challenges, even when the fictional relationships don’t work out.
Vampires Are Sexy
Vampires are powerful, eloquent, potentially wise, and overall sexy. Their very nature is seductive, their very means of feeding penetrative. To see a vampire like Angel wish to both protect and become the lover of slayer Buffy is extremely attractive. Additionally, Buffy and Angel make a really sexy couple.
