V is for Vampire.

I doubt if the vampire needs any introduction. These undead beings who subsist on human blood have grown in popular fiction since the early 1800s and more recently have achieved a significant place in movies and television. In early folklore the vampire was always an evil being to be feared and avoided. The last two centuries have seen an emergence of vampires as more humanistic creatures with incredible powers and the ability to be either good or evil. They have so caught the public imagination they've inspired thousands of popular books and films with a huge fan audience. While vampires are generally considered to be fictional, there are groups dedicated to vampirism and who claim they are real vampires.

And then there is Andreas from your Guardian Witch series. For me the all time sexiest vampire of all. Not in the least because he may exist on heart blood, but he loves Ari with all his heart.

Aw, thank you. I'm rather biased when it comes to Andreas. :)

I love pretty vampires like the one in your photo. They always have such lovely white teeth.
