So, knowing how big of a fan of Twilight I am, this post has been a long time coming. Like Bram Stoker’s vampires, Anne Rice’s are pretty badass. One of the the most interesting is Claudia. Unlike the rest of her kind, Claudia was made a vampire before she was an adult which leaves her to be a child for eternity. At first, that’s cool and her vampire fathers Lestat and Louis spoil her to no end. She ensnares her prey by being an angelic young child, often lost or in need. She murders at will and without care, ugh, kids. As decades wear on, Claudia becomes frustrated that she’ll never experience life as an adult. Her frustration turns to blind rage and she murders Lestat (but he don’t die!) and she and Louis flee to Europe to find more about their vampire roots. In Paris, the pair revel in culture and the arts before finding a troupe of vampires who pretend to be humans who pretend to be vampires to trick their prey. After it is revealed that Louis and Claudia killed Lestat, the theatrical vampires condemn Claudia to death by sunshine. I hate sunshine too. For those concerned for Louis, he lives, but is forever haunted by the death of Claudia. Try to keep in mind what a spoiled child with really good taste would wear…

Enjoy this? Fine, here’s more vampires for ya:
Bella is perhaps the most heroic of all the characters I’ve posted before. She tempts fate, she dances with vampires and werewolves and manages to find some meaning for existence in the pacific northwest. I mean, how could you not be impressed? She’s just so strong and I remember when I read the books the first six times I thought, “Wow, I wish I could be that strong” but we all know I never will be. I’m just vampire food. Whatever, she’s way better than Hermione Granger and she could probably kick her ass. We all know Hermione is just a joke.
