Other modern takes on vampires (written) are the early Anita Blake series, (Laurell Hamilton before she goes strange) , Butcher's Harry Dresden series, and Saberhagen's Dracula series. Also the True Blood TV series and its inspiration, the books (forget the writer at this time).

I mostly fault Meyer's stories because she admits she did no research before writing them. If you're going to invoke supernatural creatures, you at least need to know their literary and mythic origins before doing your own version...
Well she also kinda decided to throw all that to the wind and make her own version based on the dream she had...more power to her, I think...yes I'm a Twilight nerd!

So, a little back story here: I've spent the last three years dealing with J and our mutual friends, and their mutual joke/argument that I am a vampire. They are convinced of this, no matter how much I protest, or how often I point out that I LOVE garlic and silver jewelry, or that I am way too claustrphobic to ever sleep in a coffin....

but they never believe me. And now Cricket has been on the same bandwagon for the last year or so

My daytime sleep schedule, gothic wardrobe, and irish complexion do not mean that I'm undead!!

On the topic of "other" vampire movies - has anyone seen "Let the Right One In?"

Having read the books and knowing how the story ends - I'm not on either side ;-)

I don't think a poly situation would work in the Twilight-verse. Huge thing there about the Vamps and Weres hating each other. Sorry to kill any fun. Popular vote amongst the gay men I know puts Team Jacob in the lead post- New Moon

"Hi, I'm Jacob. I can't act at all, but I'm gay bait, and it's written into my contract that I have to take my shirt off every two minutes so that the producers of this drivel can snag another target audience, so you should pay money to come see me fail at acting and give you half a strip-tease every other scene or so."

Yeah, that guy sucks. But he does succeed at what the producers hired him for.

I saw a t-shirt once that said "and then Buffy staked Edward, the end".
