I like things. I like people. I especially like the lady person pictured above. I am over-fond of text. Books, television, films, poetry, theatre. I will post Roman things, mythology things, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Buffy (and Angel and Firefly and Dr. Horrible and Dollhouse), Stephen Sondheim, My Little Pony. ee cummings gets an automatic reblog. Oh, I knit, too. Just never enough.
And it seems unusually specific in True Blood. The progeny-to-be needs to be exsanguinated, drink the Maker’s blood and spend a night with them in the ground.
In others, the sire merely has to exsanguinate the progeny, or they have to exchange blood, or the progeny merely has to drink the blood of their sire (which in Dracula merely makes Mina Harker ill).
Which makes me wonder: If you go the True Blood route, with three criteria, does vampiricism still result when the vampires fulfilling each criterion are not the same? Could progeny have three Makers?
