You Never Forget Your First
…vampire sweetheart, that is.
What is it about these creatures that haunt us, possess us, and draw us away from the well-lit safe places of our everyday lives?
Is it…eternal love?
The promise of an eternity of dwelling in another's eyes, of being loved to the point of consumption. To quench the desire of someone who would starve without us. To become their life, their reason to exist.
Yeah. That's probably it.
Or…is it the danger, the rush of treading that silver blade between life and death, pleasure and pain?
But then again, with vampires, there is no "line between". Life and death, pleasure and pain, light and dark, good and bad. They are everything, all at once.
Heroes with unimaginable power, undone by a brush of sunlight. Strength and weakness, entwined.
No wonder vamps ensnare us: we do like our men complex, after all.
I have to go back a long time to remember my first vampire crush. I cut my teeth on Anne Rice when I was in college. My boyfriend had an English assignment on Interview with a Vampire and wanted me to read it so I could help him with the paper. (Come to think of it, I read a LOT of extra novels in college for the same purpose.) I balked at first. Vampires weren't my thing.
Then, he turned big baby brown eyes on me and fluttered those long lashes. Seriously. He had eyes like the puppies on those rip-your-heart-out animal fundraiser posters.
So, I heaved a sigh and read it. I WAS BLOWN AWAY.
Louis had such depth, such tragic humanity. And Lestat? What an ass. I hated him. He was cocky, he was mean, he was so in love with himself that he eclipsed the sun. That jerk had little regard for anyone else, no matter how much I wish he would.
I didn't realize he was setting himself up to be a Bad Boy. Uh oh. My first human crush was a Bad Boy. Unrequited love all the way for six solid years. I listened to more miserable music over him than I did for the boys I actually dated. That crush was my secret agony.
Lestat didn't disappoint. And, unrequited? Heck, yeah. I still ache a little inside when I think of him (or when I see old Reutger Hauer movies.) I'd never invested myself in a character the way I did Lestat. I hadn't known it was possible.
It was tough but eventually I moved on and found other vampire crushes. Jean Claude: I never wanted him more than the way I did in the very first Anita Blake installment. That hint of a suggestion of a tease was a complete PHEROMONE. Eric Northman: I have not the words. (The suggestions, I got a million of them, but when I open my mouth, nothing comes out.)
There's Eric’c chum Bill Compton but he's off limits. That's Sookie's first vampire love. I understand the sacredness of that bond. Sookie needs to keep that all to herself, to keep it in her heart-shaped box and cherish it always.
Eric, on the other hand, is free game. =)
Not all vampires aren't loveable. I know there are some really bad ones out there and some of them are downright Nosferatu. Some of them—like Still-Heart in my debut release BLEEDING HEARTS—are beautiful creatures but don't be fooled: inside, he's a demon. He may act like a Bad Boy but deep down, he's just bad.
In fact, all the vamps in my Demimonde series are bad, bad, bad. But the Demivampire? Another story altogether. *wicked grin* Especially Rodrian…and there is a LOT of him in BLOOD RUSH (Demimonde #2). Readers got a taste of him in BLEEDING HEARTS and they wanted more. Who am I if not an enabler?
So…I’m not going to tell you that, when it comes to your first vampire crush, you just need to get over him or move on or any other silly piece of nonsense. Oh, no. I’m going to tell you to cherish him, hold on to the feels you felt when you met him, and never, ever let go.
You never forget your first…
…and, though you only get one “first”, he doesn’t need to be your last.
