What Does Blood Taste Like To Vampires?

Vampire RoyaltyHumans find their own blood to have a rusty metallic salt like taste due to the iron content in the hemoglobin. On the other hand Vampires find the taste to be like an unimaginable, and indescribable sweet Heavenly nectar.  It’s like being able to perpetually exist off nothing but sweet desserts without any negative health repercussion.  In fact they get powerful benefits! Naturally different blood types along with a person’s nutritional balance alter that sweetness positively or negatively.  This amazing supernatural taste, and the feeling of literal power surging through a vampire’s body after ingesting it causes it to be quite addictive. Unfortunately this propels a vampire forward into preying on humans.  The true source of this power is the human soul which manifests power properties into blood that are undetectable to human science.  A metaphysical energy ripe with information from the soul sails through the blood, and is psychically detected by the vampire’s mind upon ingestion.

The most ideal food for vampires is human blood. Animal blood just doesn’t taste as good nor does it give them the same power surge.  However there are various paranormalVampire Blood creatures whose blood might be even sweeter, or merely just provide more powerful bodily effects that would motivate a vampire to go after them.  Since these creatures are rare there’s not much opportunity to seize upon such beings.  For instance Gnome blood is said to taste like peppermint wheat grass mushrooms.  This is probably due to all the mint clover they smoke, and the paranormal toadstools they eat.  Still vampires will grin, and bear it if they are lucky enough to bag a Gnome. This is due to the blood giving them the ability to exist in sunlight for a few hours.

It’s also known that Mermaid blood is even sweeter than human blood but it causes vampires to temporarily turn into a mermaid which puts them ironically in a weakened fish out of water state. It’s said that the sweetest blood of all is that of an Angel taking biological form.  Unfortunately it will kill most vampires instantly.  For those whose soul is good it will actually reverse their vampirism, and restore their human state.  The next sweetest blood is said to be Unicorn blood which in fact will make a vampire invincible, and immune to all magic.  This state is rumored to be permanent if the blood is fresh.   This is why Unicorn blood is just about the most sought after blood for vampires, and many other supernatural beings as well.

The most avoided blood is that of the Walking Dead Zombie, or the blood of any dead human, which acts as a weakening poison on vampires.  In a way it’s like Kryptonite to vampires.  In large enough quantities it might kill them.  It is said to taste like rotted meat which makes sense considering a zombie is in fact a rotting living dead corpse. This taste, and it’s stench protects vampires from being tricked into drinking it. However sneaky magical methods can mask this, and damn them to death!

Vampire blood itself is virtually tasteless to a vampire but they will partake of each others blood to form a psychic bond, and in some cases to share memories.  The joy of drinking another vampires blood comes from the emotional aspect rather then the lack of taste, and physical attributes. It is essential in the process of transforming a human to a vampire as it creates the bond between sire, and vampire child.  To humans, vampire blood ironically tastes similar in sweetness to human blood on a vampires palate. That’s why vampires use it to lure in unsuspecting human victims on which to prey upon!

Can Vampires See Their Reflection In Mirrors?

Do Vampires Have A Reflection?
Vampiress No ReflectionVampires do cast a reflection since light is absorbed, and reflected by everything in our physical reality in the same general manner.  The only exceptions are those employing magic, or PSI powers to bend light to their will.  There are also rare paranormal creatures who might naturally alter light, or be invisible to a great many people.  For those supernatural beings who can be seen the photons that compose light are sometimes transformed.  Especially the living dead ones that include vampires.  When these altered photons come in contact with certain reactive substances there can be paranormal incidents.  Silver being one of these substances is a potentially deadly element repellant to vampires!

In the case of mirrors they were all virtually made of silver coated glass before the advent of aluminum manufacturing in the 20th century.  Now most mirrors are made using cheaper aluminum rather than silver.  However silver is still used in some expensive mirrors, and exists in antique mirrors.  The myth of a vampire having no reflection came from the many centuries when mirrors were almost exclusively made with silver.  So vampires do have reflections in general but not when the photons of light that bounced off them end up cascading on to a silver mirror.  Needless to say many vampires were relieved when the widespread use of the silver mirror came to an end.  Unfortunately vampires who travel in wealthy elite circles will end up at social engagements in mansions that still employ silver mirrors.  A dangerous dead give away to any Vampire Slayers in vicinity!

When it comes to holy light, aka sunlight, reflecting off vampires on to silver mirrors what you would see is a distorted image.  The reflection is somewhat cast in a hideous manner thanks to the holy nature of the sunny photons. It neutralizes the unknown demonic element that prevents silver reflection.  Most vampires will begin displaying properties of combustion in holy light making the mirror a moot point.  Those with some level of sunlight tolerance, magical countermeasures, or consume substances such as Gnomes blood will still find their mutated reflection will give them away as a member of the nocturnal sanguine suckers club.

The exact alteration of the photons is unknown as further study is required by paranormal quantum physicists.  One theory is that photons, being the source of electromagnetism, are somehow changed by the special EM field various supernatural beings radiate. The same electromagnetic field that makes certain paranormal creatures appear distorted in photos, and videos.  Another theory is that photons absorb some aspect of the vampires demonic DNA since all demonic beings have some level of aversion to silver.  The DNA may contain a dark energy which is infused into the photon upon contact with the vampire.  Dark energy that is repelled by the silver, and never makes it to the actual surface of the mirror.  The contaminated photon could also simply be affected by the dark energy aura that is found around various demonic beings which radiates from the aforementioned demon genes.  Of course this doesn’t always mean the beings themselves are evil since there are some good vampires who fight on the side of righteousness.  Vampires such as myself who battle against the dark denizens of injustice on this Earth!

What Effect Does Virgin Blood Have On Vampires?

Sweet Virgin GirlThe various legends of virgins blood can be contradictory with some saying it’s poisonous to vampires while others saying it has mystical properties beneficial to the living dead.  Both are correct in the right context.  The blood of virgin humans contains the magical properties of pure-hearted innocence similar to what is found in children’s blood.  This is why kids blood is always poisonous under all circumstances. Especially babies blood which is deadly to vampires.  All innocent blood tastes beyond exquisite to living dead which is why a vampire can easily be tricked by an enemy into drinking it.  The difference between children’s blood, and adult virgin blood is the fact that virgins blood can be both poisonous, and powerful to nocturnal sanguine suckers.

A virgin must give permission to a vampire to partake of their blood for it to be a power boost greater than normal human blood.  If a vampire doesn’t gain permission then the blood will be pure poison, and deadly to most vampires.  However vampires over 1000 years old, and/or in the first to second generations can withstand it. No matter how powerful they are illness with befall them but they will suffer through to enjoy what they call, “the sweetest sustenance of sensuality”.  There is also sparse anecdotal evidence that the sainted pure of heart blood can resurrect a dead vampire who was staked in the heart or even beheaded!  It’s also thought to be a key ingredient in the elusive ancient cure for vampirism.

Why Is Virgin Blood So Powerful & What Of Soul Mate Blood?
Soul MatesIn addition a virgin can never be transformed into a vampire.  They are immune to a number of paranormal viruses including the vampire, werewolf, and even some strains of the dreaded supernatural form of the zombie virus.  These special protections granted to virgins are through to reside in the metaphysical energy matrix of the Chakra’s.  When one has sexual relations there is a deep, and permanent energy exchange that causes soul entanglement.  What would be called a spiritual contamination.  Only in cases of 100% true soul mates does this not occur, and in fact a supernatural strengthening is manifested. Unfortunately real soul mates on Earth, aka perfectly aligned opposite soul frequencies, is thought to only exist less than 1% of the time.  Simply consider the size of the planet, the Universe, and the expanse of time.  What are the odds two perfect paranormally compatible spiritual frequencies would meet? It’s beyond astronomical!  In fact there’s only one recorded case when it comes to vampires.  A soul mated couple allowed a group of vampires to feed on them for the soul purpose of easy eradication.  The vampires didn’t have a clue that their blood was pure paranormal poison!
