These are questions that are asked frequently in the vampire community.
Q: Vampires? They aren’t REAL!
A: Yes actually vampires are very real. They are also very human. The vampire community came out of the underground in the 1990’s.They may not be the immortal undead glamorized by Hollywood, but they are defiantly here to stay.
Q: Are there different types of vampires?
A: There are roughly three groups within the vampire community, though amongst those groups are highly diverse people with a diverse set of needs. There are Sanguinarian vampires, or vampires that drink blood, pranic or psi vampires, who feed on human energy, and lifestylers, who aren’t actually vampires, but enjoy the cliché image of vampires in the media. Lifestylers will dress in capes, wear fangs, sleep in coffins, and speak in old English.
Q: So what is a vampire?
A: A vampire is a person who for some reason cannot live a comfortable, normal life without ingesting human blood or energy.
Q: Do vampires have super powers?
A: No. Vampires are normal human beings. They are not dead, do not live forever, and cannot turn into bats. Though some vampires report having certain talents in areas such as metaphysics, these abilities are nothing that a normal, non-vampire, could not also posses.
Q: How do vampires get blood?
A: Vampires are bound by a code of ethics, called the Black Veil, and take blood only from willing donors. Pranic vampires follow this same code of ethics.
Q: How does a vampire find a donor?
A: Vampires frequently ask their friends or loved ones to be their donor. In the case of a vampire who has not made their condition public, they may find a donor elsewhere, such as on an online vampire sight or at a local nightclub. Both donor and vampire must be tested frequently for all known blood borne pathogens.
Q: I’m A Sanguinarian vampire, and I can’t get blood. What do I do?
A: There are a number of blood substitutes available on the web to sate off the craving. Until you can find a willing donor please take advantage of these. If you find yourself becoming hostile you may need to avoid people until it passes. Whatever you do, avoid attacking someone. This will land you in serious trouble. If you are under the age of legal adulthood you may not be able to get a donor until you are of age. You are not alone. There is a community out there to help. Get support, get blood substitutes, you will make it through this.
Q: I would like to be a blood or prana donor for a vampire. Where do I go?
A: Try searching the web and checking out a couple community sights for vampires in need. Some of them have hook ups to talk to vampires in your area. Be sure to first, however, to know your safety guidelines and your rights as a donor. Check out the Donor bill of Rights, and make sure you have a recent blood borne pathogen test. Also use caution when meeting someone from the internet. Meet in a public place and bring a friend.
Q: Pranic Vampires, how exactly does energy feeding work?
A: Pranic energy is the life-force of a person. It’s a person’s soul and it’s what a medium sees when they see auras. This energy is constantly created by all living things, and each person’s energy is different. Pranic Vampires don’t make enough of their own energy, due to a flaw in their connection to the universal life force. So they must take it from others. When a person creates too much energy, it is simply thrown off into the universe. We call this loose energy, ambient energy, and sometimes it is enough to keep a pranic vampire going. Other times a pranic vampire must make an actual connection with a donor, bridging their energy and their donors. Using this connection a pranic vampire can take in energy directly from a person. Though, less invasive physically, pranic feeding can sometimes be very emotionally evasive. For this reason, pranic vampires also use willing donors.
Q: So is being a vampire a disease or something?
A: No, being a vampire is not a medical condition at all. It is a spiritual one. Before attributing any symptoms to vampirism be sure to consult a doctor first and make sure there isn’t anything else going on.
Q: I want to be a vampire! Where can I find someone to turn me?
A: No you don’t want to be a vampire. There is nothing beneficial about this condition. It is simply a condition that causes a special need. Sorry to disappoint but vampires are not made, they are born the way they are. Though it is known that a person who is fed off too much by a pranic vampire may start to exhibit signs of vampirism, this is a curable condition known as “sympathetic vampirism”. Vampires cannot be made, and people cannot be turned into vampires.
