Okay, it may be a day or two...I need to go through and update it for the class I'm teaching this fall (on vampires and fan studies, can you believe it?), so that's a perfect time to post.

Count me in as one who is interested in your paper Lucky. Can't wait to find out why so many of us are entranced with this centuries old story. I have a thing for dragons, too.

I do have two segments of it posted at http://www.moonlightaholics.com/viewtopic.php?f=310&t=4144 --it may be a little bit before I get the rest. Putting all those pics in is a major hassle...but it's worth it, I think.

Not a vampire fan before Moonlight, either.

I totally agree with Alle about the Moonlight vamps being so much more interestng that then quasi supernatural creatures from old movies (Frank Langella and Gary Oldham notwithstanding).

I was thinking about a scene in, I believe the Mortal Cure--not sure. Mick wakes up after the big fight with Lance and looks at his reflection in the mirror. He sees a wound on the side of his face, touches it and flinches from the pain. Then he remarks to himself, 'Still human'

What is huge to me in this moment (yes, I'm wierd) is that before he poked his finger in that open sore, he didn't know.

I think that is huge. He did not feel sufficiently different to be able to tell!

As in "Love at First Bite": Dracula reads a dictionary on his way to the New York (after being expulsed from his castlein Roumania because it's going to be transformed into a gymnastics training center), bein puzzled by some words, discovering the copyright is 1926 and exclaiming: "Renfield! This dictionary is as old-fashioned as ... (resigned) I am." At the time Love at First Bite was my favorite vampire movie (it's still in the top three or so) because it was the only one with a happy end for the vampire.

I stumbled onto this and thought it would be an appropriate place to put it.
