Title:
Vampire Myths vs. Realities
Author(s):
A-Alibaster

To be whom and what we are is what we all strive for, yet to accept yourself when you are being told that you are a lie, fake, monster, immoral, or nothing more than a myth, is extremely difficult to say the least. I can assure you that real vampires are nothing like what are in movies and/or portrayed in books. Here I will attempt to put to rest some of the myths to help others know what is real and what is a lie.

MYTH

Crosses, wooden stakes, holy water, garlic, silver bullets, and sunlight are things that can destroy or aid in the destruction of vampires.

Truth
Holy water and crosses do not harm a vampire, as a matter of fact many vampires attend church and believe in religion. Weapons, such as silver bullets {which to be correct, are actually from werewolf lore, not vampire} and wooden stakes can kill any one if used properly. Be real, people, vampires are not immortal!

The only things garlic does are aide in digestion, make one have nasty breath, flavor food, and for a sanguinarian it makes blood have a bad or strong bitter taste.

The sunlight myth, to me is most laughable, indeed. Who in their right mind would think some one, any one would melt and wither away to dust in the sun? Vampires can and do go out in daylight. Most have some discomfort from it such as sensitivity that results in bad sunburns, headaches, or migraines but nothing that has a lasting effect.

MYTH

Vampires are "made" by drinking blood from another Vampire, or by being "turned" or bitten by another vampire.

Truth
Please…NO this is not true!! A vampire is born a vampire. Any one can drink blood from vampire, but unless the person was already a vampire, they can not and will never become a vampire.

If any one ever tells you that they can make you a vampire, change you, or embrace…READ my lips…they ARE lying. I would tend to believe that if they tell you or offer you such a thing that they are trying to control you for some reason or another or they are trying to get something from you. Never, ever, ever give some one some thing to make you into a vampire! A real Vampire will not ask anything from you and they will never offer to turn you.

My advice to you if some one should offer such a thing, would be, end your relationship with the person A.S.A.P.!! There are dangerous people out there, believe that!

MYTH

Vampires are immortal or supernatural creatures that are created from the edge of death its self.

Truth
Vampires are, for the most part, as normal a human being as the next person. They are not immortal or dead. A real vampire is born as they are. It is not a choice. We live, breath and die just as others do. We do not possess supernatural powers that can make us fly, hypnotize others, jump and run long distances, or have unusually fast body functions or movements. Though some of us are extremely sensitive to emotions and our surroundings.

MYTH

Vampires sleep in coffins and must have dirt from where they were born.

Truth
There is no need for coffins or dirt. Vampires slumber in beds just as others do and definitely do not cover their beds with dirt.

MYTH

A Vampire can not enter a home uninvited.

Truth
If this were true we could not go anywhere. I mean, think about it, are you invited into the door of stores, restaurants etc.?

MYTH

Vampires can turn into other creatures.

Truth
This absolutely not true. We are what we are born and can not become some thing else at will.
