Fangs for Friday: TNSS Vampires 101

18 Apr

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????I decided it was time to do a post on the basics of the vampires in my Nocturnal Surrender Series as there have been some questions raised lately.

Why and how do my vampires breathe and have heartbeats?

This is for two main reasons. First, breathing and circulating blood can help cool them. Second, it helps them pass for human when needed.

They do not have to breathe or allow their hearts to beat, and they do have control over these things. They can go into full-on-vamp mode and shut these down or they can turn them on when needed.

Why are my vampires warm to the touch?

Simple, they aren’t dead. My vamps don’t have to die in order to be turned. As a matter of fact, if they die as a mortal, there’s no way to bring them back and turn them. They have to be alive to be turned, and they remain alive after turning. No undead vamps here. Sorry.

If my vampires have no bodily functions, how do the guys rise to the occasion?

Their bodies run on blood. The more blood the better. Obviously, a certain body part requires blood to pump it up. So my guys can get hard, but nothing comes out to make a mess when the fun reaches its climax. Every woman’s dream, right?

What about silver, stakes, crosses, garlic, sunlight, and mirrors?

Silver inside their bodies, especially liquid silver, is poisonous, but will not kill them. They can wear silver jewelry without a problem. Stakes will not kill them; only knock them out temporarily, if even that. Crosses and garlic are no problem. They can see themselves in mirrors. Sunlight will not make them burst into flames or turn to ash—or sparkle. It will weaken them with prolonged exposure, though.

Can my vampires eat human food?

My vamps can have human food and drinks if they want. Their bodies are able to break down and absorb small amounts of food, but they can’t eat a lot at one sitting since their bodies don’t expel waste.

What powers do my vampires have?

Their powers and strengths develop further with age, but some basics include mind control, hearing other’s thoughts, and feeling other’s emotions. For the most part, they are able to block other vamps from doing this to them except in certain instances. Other powers will develop with age.

My vamps also have super strength and speed. They have the ability to jump very far, but they cannot fly–unless they are old enough to develop powers of telekinesis and levitate themselves. Their senses are extremely heightened, as well.

What makes them vamp out?

Simple again. The three Fs. Feeding, fighting, and fu@#ing. It is a little difficult for them to hide when they are hungry, angry, or horny. Poor vamps.

What happens when they vamp out?

Their fangs extend and their eyes shift color to silver. They can normally see well in the dark, but when they vamp out, night looks bright as day.

How do vampire laws work?

The ruling Elders created a Code of laws that all vampires and their humans must follow. The Elders’ Enforcers and Sweeper Teams dispense justice to those who break the Code.

What’s up with the Hunters?

Hunters are mortals who believe in vampires and see them as evil, inhuman creatures and therefore have been trying to rid the world of them for millennia. Usually, Hunters pass down the tradition, keeping the business in the family, so to speak.

I’m sure there are many other questions you may have about my vampires. Please ask away in the comments, and let me know what you think about my take on vamps.

Oh, and you can not only ask me questions about the series and vamps, but you can also ask any character you’d like to answer your question. Want to pick Bastian’s brain? Go for it.
