Vampires and werewolves

ppl feel free to look it up at

http://www.werewolves.com/vampires-werewolves-similarities-and-differences/

Vampires and werewolves are familiar monsters to most of us. They star in movies and are popular Halloween costume choices. However, these mystical creatures also share deeper similarities. Both vampires and werewolves are shape-shifting creatures. They are thought to change form from a human to an animal. In the case of a vampire, an undead human can change into a bat at will, especially on a dark and spooky night.

Werewolves, on the other hand, do not have any control over their transformation. They shift shape from human form to wolf-like form whenever they are in the presence of a full moon. Perhaps because vampires are thought to have control over their form, while werewolves do not, each creature has a distinctive set of personality characteristics when stereotyped in film and literature. Vampires are seen as cold, both figuratively and literally.

They are capable of regarding normal humans placidly, with icy sharp logic. The iconic image of a vampire is of a pale man in a cape laughing creepily or simply staring. In contrast, werewolves are seen as passionate and almost animalistic. The iconic image of a werewolf is of a man caught mid-transformation, ripping at his shirt as his body turns from human into fierce and bulky animal. These two creatures also differ in terms of the type of threat they present to humans.

Vampires actively seek humans to kill (or to turn into vampires, depending on the story). They require regular meals of fresh human blood in order to survive, and so they act as literal silent predators. The fear that we feel when watching a vampire movie is the fear of what unknown and alien force might wait hidden in the darkness. Werewolves are not typically described as actively stalking humans, and indeed are often shown as very loving to humans when the moon is new. However, they can hurt human beings when they are in wolf form. The fear evoked at a werewolf movie is the fear of betrayal, the fear of those we trust and care for transforming into something utterly different and destructive.

lol. Removed my post when I pointed out that you were breaking the law, eh? Not a problem, I can rewrite what I wrote before. I'll probably keep it simple this time though. A warning would have been nice, but I suppose you didn't want to risk being fined for plagiarism.

"Vampires and werewolves are familiar monsters to most of us. They star in movies and are popular Halloween costume choices. However, these mystical creatures also share deeper similarities. Both vampires and werewolves are shape-shifting creatures. They are thought to change form from a human to an animal. In the case of a vampire, an undead human can change into a bat at will, especially on a dark and spooky night."

Vampires and werewolves are human, not monsters at all, and to consider them as such is a sure sign of ignorance. Vampires do not shape-shift and werewolves only do so on the Astral. Vampires are not undead, they are human and perfectly alive. They do not change into bats and dark-spooky nights are simply fun for all people who are not afraid of the dark and do like spooky things.

"Werewolves, on the other hand, do not have any control over their transformation. They shift shape from human form to wolf-like form whenever they are in the presence of a full moon. Perhaps because vampires are thought to have control over their form, while werewolves do not, each creature has a distinctive set of personality characteristics when stereotyped in film and literature. Vampires are seen as cold, both figuratively and literally."

Werewolves do have control over their shape-shifting abilities and generally only do so on the Astral. They do not turn "wolf-like," they turn into wolves. The moon cycle has nothing to do with werewolves as a control sequence of any kind, although they do tend to be more open to the energy that the moon lets off in any part of it's cycle(this includes waning, full, and simply not visible). Film and literature are untrustworthy sources and anyone knowing anything about real vampires and werewolves would not need me to point that out.

"They are capable of regarding normal humans placidly, with icy sharp logic. The iconic image of a vampire is of a pale man in a cape laughing creepily or simply staring.

The iconic image of a werewolf is of a man caught mid-transformation, ripping at his shirt as his body turns from human into fierce and bulky animal. These two creatures also differ in terms of the type of threat they present to humans."

The icon of a vampire is more likely to be a blood drop, a bat, or fangs then to be Dracula. Werewolves are not always passionate, but they are often animalistic. The icon of a werewolf would more likely be a wolf or a paw print then a creature as was described. And why would they rip at their own shirt? Answer: Hollywood drama. Neither vampires nor werewolves are a threat to humanity in general, that is another ignorant belief given by Hollywood and various authors.

"Vampires actively seek humans to kill (or to turn into vampires, depending on the story). They require regular meals of fresh human blood in order to survive, and so they act as literal silent predators. The fear that we feel when watching a vampire movie is the fear of what unknown and alien force might wait hidden in the darkness.

However, they can hurt human beings when they are in wolf form. The fear evoked at a werewolf movie is the fear of betrayal, the fear of those we trust and care for transforming into something utterly different and destructive."

The first sentence is just downright insulting. Blood vampires do not kill for blood and nowadays they more commonly take from animals such as cows, pigs, buffalo, deer, and/or whatever other meat they may purchase at your local grocery store. Psychic vampires, on the other hand, may actually be vegetarian as they do not require blood.

Any fear you feel due to ignorance while watching a Hollywood film should be a sure sign that you need to do research and stop believing that anything put into a book or a movie must be fact. Watch Disney for a bit, specifically Peter Pan, then tell me if you can jump out of a second floor window and fly just by thinking a happy thought.

Thank you for reading this, everyone. Nessiah, please, if you are going to post something here make it something more realistic or at least be sure to mention that this is not realistic. Some of the newer members may not understand where this is coming from and then believe that this must be true, adding to our already horrifying number of ignorant teachers and role players.
