And here I have to come, ruining everything with my sarcasm and mispaced and offensive wit. *nod*
Like Claire Bennet and the stick-in-the-brain? Interesting, I always heard that it just killed.7. A stake through the heart paralyzes until it's removal.
It doesn't kill. This theory is disputed and accepted in just about equal measures throughout vampire literature.
Also, I just wanted to say that I always imagined that vampires would take human kids from villages and the like, raise them till they're about 20, and then turn them into vampires.
