    Anon has not considered the consequences of an entire nation of hungry vampires devoid of humans.

    People suggesting you’d have to kill for blood haven’t seen true blood. IIRC the vampires in that book/show found a way to coexist with humans because human nations created artificial blood (that you could buy like soda at a convenience store etc)

    Edit a whole bunch of other stuff happened, but that’s one aspect from that setting

      Idk about this specific mask caused vampirism but depending on the type of vampirism you might not fully kill the person.

      Just drain like a liter and move on. The person would feel no different than if they had blood drawn.

      OP really thinks The Gay isn’t transmissible.

      I’ve been to a few blood chasing parties, and let me tell you, I’ve seen straight men dying to suck other straight men after being bitten.

    Can vampires sustain themselves on alien blood? Just imagining a brood of vampires conquering Earth and then setting their eyes to the galaxy. Like they have vampire scientists who find ways to let them enter sunlight and enjoy Italian food once more.

      probably depends on their chirality. (specifically, IIRC, sugars. sugars that twist the wrong way are useless)

      In Vampire: The Masquerade, it’s considered one of the most taboo act as you literally take in the life force and soul of that other vampire.

      But it’s an alluring concept as it can make the aggressor more powerful (at the cost of some humanity… it’s cannibalism after all) AND the victim vampire is utterly destroyed (so one of the permanent ways to take out an adversary)

      Some anime probably has that as a plot line, where super vampires only feed from regular vampires

        I went down a little rabbit hole a few weeks ago looking at different animes to potentially watch and came to the conclusion it’s the closest thing to infinite monkeys on infinite typewriters. Anything you can imagine, there’s an anime plot of it.

    Real quick question…Why are you thinking about biting black men right off the bat… You know porn stars, nurses, recruiters, etc all have blood as well?

    People have more or less completely forgotten that vampires are meant to represent the monstrosity of an unchecked aristocracy/wealthy upper class. They sold their souls for power and now live exclusively by feeding off those beneath them. You don’t just ‘become’ a vampire like you don’t just ‘become’ rich. You can certainly become enthralled to a vampire though

      That was never the case. Traditional folk tales about vampires were a way to understand corpse decomposition. The narrative changed in 1819.

      You farm the remaining humans like livestock? We mastered factory farming 100 years ago, no reason things need to change just because the animals can talk back.

        Okay but among those people who choose to remain human, how many of us would be okay with donating blood every two weeks in exchange for food and rent?

        Think about it. If the vampires have all the power, why would they kill their food source when the longer they let their food source live the more food they get out of it?

        Let us tra-la-la and have happy-go-lucky existences, which will probably make our blood taste better to them, and they can spend their eternities competing for resources or whatever makes a vampire happy after the first 500 years.

              i’m always tempted to sing:

              in the gloom of mighty cities,
              'mid the roar of whirling wheels,
              we are toiling on like chattle slaves of old
              and our masters hope to keep us
              ever, thus, beneath their heels
              and to coin our very lifeblood into gold.

            There’s one already, where the vampire is a head of state and religius leader. (Luminous Valentine)

                https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/exploit

                Scroll down to verbs. When you’re talking about someone else, there’s an implication of unfairness. This is why vegans don’t eat animals or use animal products. If the animals could consent, there would be nothing wrong with it.

                I reiterate: it would not be unfair for Astarion or Lenore to drain several pints of blood from my neck

                  The definition from the vegan society doesn’t mention unfairness at all. it prohibits exploitation carte blanche

              exploitation and consent are unrelated. I exploit water resources every day, and consent is an absurd topic to raise in this context. the definition of veganism requires the abstention from exploitation of animals for food. there is no exemption made for consenting animals

                Exploit does mean “use/utilize” but I assumed the common subtext of “use unfairly or in a manner not conducive to overall welfare”

                  the ambiguity does not seem to be helpful in defining veganism, and the definition should probably be updated

                The way that people use the word “exploit” when talking about living things is different from the way we use it when talking about nonliving things. It implies a lack of consent from the one being exploited.

        I don’t need much. Some abilities I can only use using blood (so called blood magic); Such as permanent changes to society; But for everyday life I can completely avoid using blood.

        As for the periods, I don’t really care. I usually avoid them, but only because my girlfriend wants me to. I seek for social compatibility.
