We seem to have this incredible fascination with vampires. I wondered how it might change if vampires were discovered to be real...but not quite how we pictured them. What if they were kind of boring and normal? What if they were embarrassed by their portrayal in our media, and were suddenly treated as second class citizens? Stripped of their power and mystery, they become the disgraced celebrity that doesn't understand why everyone has suddenly turned on them, and made them into a joke.
