Yes , I give up !
I have been forced to write this article and clear my stand on the issue .
Lately , everyone loves them . From teeny weeny teenage blossoms to my hunky bros and my gay pals !
From ‘twilight’ to ‘eclipse’ and all other solar phenomena combined , Stephnie Meyer has done it .
Thrown pink coloured confetti inside the coffins of the most revered ancient mythical (?) evil creatures .
If any of them are still there . They probably prefer to hide inside their coffins .
( Better than Barbie/Gucci/rose clutching gals prancing behind them with their pinkie pinkie slam books for them to sign ! )
What with all these puberty hit muscled up chikne chokre growing long canines and Turning the “dark gift” into koochi kocchi valentine kisses ..
WHO CAN BLAME THE POOR VAMPIRES ??
I read “Dracula” in class 12th .
Ah ! The sheer terror of The Count crawling over walls . sinking his teeth beautifully into those lovely ladies . The old world charm ,the courtesy and and and
The sheer cold blooded evil that radiated from him !
The feeling of dread ( or reverence ) that washes over you when you behold someone so ancient and indestructible .
So loath , yet so desirable . Power as raw as it comes …..
I then picked up “Interview with the vampire – Anne Rice “
( There’s an excellent movie …with Tom Cruise ,Antonio and Brad in it . Thanks to Siva for suggesting it )
What a vampire … dear Lestat .
Free of guilt , remorse . Hungry , revengeful , proud and aggressive .
Opposite to the Count in so many ways . Yet , the kind of thing that’ll make you weak in the knee .
AND AND AND then …..
There is a long list of extremely inappropriate words I’d love to dedicate to the writer . But this is ( still ) a ‘non adult’ blog .
She ruined it . Vampires suddenly became hunks . Teenagers all ripping with ‘bottled up jawani’ and filled with long lost love ( n other desires ? )
chulhe mein . ( Evil went to hell ) gaya
The danced and smooched and carried their girlfriends in their arms across places . They attended SCHOOL in DAYTIME !
To hell with all that , they have sexual intercourse too !!!!
Another one in the series is “vampire diaries” . I plead ignorance !
MY PROBLEM ….
Is that , that they are ruining it . They are transforming vampire , one of the most feared evil powerful creatures into KEN ( barbie’s sidekick ) .
Why … why did they do it ?
With no knowledge of folklore , they are messing up with age old stories …age old legends .
Wass a better term ? “REMIXING THE LEGENDS”
RIP Vampires . Maybe they’ll release your dolls after a few years now !
