Never heard of Guillermo’s Strain. If I had some free time, I’d definitely take a look, but there’s so much everything else the vampires will have to wait.
I support vampires from ethnographic point of view. Following trail of their stories though centuries and cultures can be very interesting and can lead you to endless number of other, seemingly unrelated discoveries. (For example, you can clearly see what tribe came from which area based on variation of a vampire they brought along.)
And that’s about it. I had mind so open it almost fell out, and I believe in every weirdness I’ve seen, but sadly, I never, ever saw a classic, bloodsucking, embodied vampire or anyone that qualifies as such.
Obviously, energetic vampirism, both in psychological or personal belief sense, is something completely else. Emotional parasites are a matter of the fact, while vampirism as magic paradigm is a matter of personal spiritual choice. Can’t possibly make the world any more miserable than Abrahamites did, so if you ask me... let people vampire on
Edit: this is hilarious... I wanted to check what is the right spelling for Abrahamites and if that word exists in English in the first place... and Google refuses to give me anything but Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
The world has officially ended. Yesterday.
