So, given that the human body has about 4.7, to five liters of blood in its body, and a person needs about eight cups of water in a day, or about 2.2 liters, but nobody can really drink all that in one go, shouldn't a vampire need the same about a day to keep physical activity going, or maybe even less?Remember, while her body needs blood for transformation, flight, immortality, it also isn't burning energy for organ management beyond cellular preservation, and just simple preservation against breakdown isn't as difficult as functioning, so it should balance to that, maybe less. Not to mention how human stomachs are not able to drink that much water at any one time, it could be assumed that a similar lack of ability to swallow that much is possible. Going by Bram Stoker rules, Vampires also don't burn in the sun, but are less powerful, so getting a vampire used to a diurnal lifestyle could also get her to need even less blood.Yes, Dracula was able to drain enough blood to kill a person, but that is about 2.5 liters, at night, and he's also powering all other vampire curses on others at the same time. That much power requires more blood, and even then he didn't drain enough to immediately kill Lucy as she was still conscious when she was found. And since Lucy's awakening never drank more than even children needed of blood, clearly the converted ones don't need as much.Given all that, and how much a Vampire would actually need for self preservation, which is far less than the quarter of weight a day vampire bats need, could it be possible that under these rules, having a vampire as a friend, and even a lover, could be easily achieved? Keep some blood packs around the house, let her bite you a little, and voila, vampire waifu.
>>26865471I like the idea that vampires need to eat and drink as well, blood drinking is just an extra thing they need to do
Fuck you I like my immortal soul
>Take Vampire to Olive Garden>she throws up and is sick all day because of garlic>you throw up and are sick all day because it's Olive Garden
Wouldn't the biting give you the curse or virus or what ever makes you their slave/ other vampire.
You're making a lot of assumptions, notably that power activation requires blood. Like V:TM. What if a vampire just needs a flat 2.5L a day, and can do anything it wants so long as it gets that?
>>26865616Bram Stoker rules is that you only get turned if you drink THEIR blood.
>>26865640huh learn something new every day.
>>26865471>Going by Bram Stoker rules, Vampires also don't burn in the sun, but are less powerful, so getting a vampire used to a diurnal lifestyle could also get her to need even less blood.Wouldn't you need more blood? To cope with this?
Would you let her bite your dick?
>>26865627VTM states it's not blood they need it's the life force. Blood is just the medium.
>>26865680Only if I was a hard M and wanted a tooth going into one of the most sensitive parts of the body.
>>26865680NuhuhuhuhahahahohohooNo. Anywhere but there.If she asked that I'd be hella' nervous about receiving oral from her afterwards.
>>26865669I wouldn't think so, it's like changing shape is like physical activity, and waking up in the day is just waking up at a different time. Possibly hard on a vampire body, as how diurnal cues effect our metabolism and bodily functions.Maybe she needs umbrellas, or to work in rooms with shades and dark lights to work. The day umbrella would also be a good IRL accessory, then the pale skin and look could help pass as a goth girl than a vampress.Dates could be at places indoors more often, like movies, plays, or laser tag.>you will never play laser tag with a vampire
>>26865680only if she lets me bring in silver plated sex toys and garlic based lube.
>>26865791Aw man why you gotta bring me down like that. Laser tag is fucking dope. I play it way too seldom.
>>26865826Branding a masochist vampire with a silver stamp.Hello boner.
>>26865680Depends, how hard is she biting?

1. Vampires are much less active than normal humans.How long each day are you awake? about 16 hours. If you work for a living, you can expect to be involved in some kind of activity for 8-12 hours of that.Vampires are only "active" nocturnally. A schedule which limits their days to an average of 12 hours. Presuming that Vampires are still people, and want to have some time to relax and unwind, then we're looking at a day of "work" for them that is between 6-8 hours. 3/4ths that of a typical person. As a result, they will have a lower caloric consumption requirement.A liter of human blood is roughly 425 calories (source: I just googled it), your typical person needs ~1800 calories per day... if we assume that vampires are down to 3/4ths of the daily calorie needs, we're down to 3.1 liters of blood to support the vampire lifestyle.Now, an adult can stand to lose up to 40% of their blood before it is fatal, or roughly 2.24 liters. (Note: losing 40% is VERY BAD, but you can SURVIVE.) an you can lose up to 1.6 liters without any significant impairment.Therefore, if we have responsible vampires taking ~1 liter from 3 victims a night, and we're sold.
>>26865680Maybe just a nibble...
>>26865826>not garlic dildoes
>>26865680Honestly, if the reality I'm in is fucked up enough for not only vampires to exist but for them to be willing to interact with me in a non-predatory fashion, sure fuck it - why not?
Rolled 78>>26865680yes. i love my dick being bit very hard. i'm not even joking.

>>26866219"The plasma from your donation is replaced within about 24 hours. Red cells need about four to six weeks for complete replacement. That’s why at least eight weeks are required between whole blood donations." http://www.redcrossblood.org/donating-blood/donation-faqs I believe it would become harmful to lose that much blood without recovery time
>>26866219vampires are undead and have no metabolic requirements
>>26869422Top left corner.
>unit of blood is $50 minimum, and has only a liter in it>vampires need $150 of blood a day, if we're going by the three liter a day thing, or about $54,750 a year to stay regular>counting on drinking from you one liter a week, that's only $2600 off>That's not considering jobs, expenses, other tripsVampire girlfriends are expensive to keep stable if we're talking normal. Then again, this is a fantasy, so we could bend the rules a little. Maybe they can eat food and drink too, but blood is necessary for vampire upkeep, like needing some small amount to keep their bodies and minds together, at the cost of some powers that require more juice. They could eat homeless or go out prowling for a snack in the morning, but a vampire that's willing to go diurnal for a human probably wants to try and be a good girl.
>>26865949Soup can be good too.Salad is okay.
>>26870650If vampires are common they're probably organized to some degree and have bulk rates for blood available for them.Also, they're fucking magic, so the caloric value of blood isn't the important bit, it's the symbolic value.
>>26865680>Prick your dick with a sewing needle, suck the small amount of blood coming out while flicking the tiny hold with her tongue>All while making "mmm-mmm" noises indicative of a satisfying taste>Gets a slow, strong, steady rhythm of suck and pull her head a little up as she does so, lick, down a bit again, repeat that keeps the blood flowing>Puts her hands on your thighs and massages them absent mindedly>Cum in her mouth, spits it off to the side and goes back to sucking your now shrinking dick
>>26865471Depends entirely on the setting. AKA depends entirely on whether the GM wants vampires to be seriously sympathetic (sure you can drink animal blood) or universally serial-killing monsters (Feeding is frequently necessary and necessarily lethal, say) or something in between.
>>26870843How about Warhammer vamps?They will do abso-fucking-lutely ANYTHING to prolong their own life by even seconds, otherwise they act in any section of the alignment chart (they'll be altruistic, just not with their own life).
>>26865471>vampire scienceAutism speaks.
>>26865627In that case vampirism is a shit-tier curse.Hell, humans have diseases worse than that.
>>26865640and VTM rules state that you have to be fully drained by the Vampire before you drink their blood to be turned. Otherwise you're just a ghoul.
>>26866219Bare minimum amount of blood is enough to keep them alive, but you're burning a whole lot of blood to keep a reasonable simulacrum of life, and more still if you want the vampire's internal organs to actually be working.Add to THAT the fact that the older a vampire is, the more blood they need to stay alive.
>>26865471that's pretty fucking cool anon.But vampires1. don't exist ( they do, but they're small bats that normally feed on small portions of blood of farm animals)2. Get wrekt by a cross (depends on folklore)3. burn in the sun4. commands legions of vermin.5. flies.6. transforms himself into many shapes7. normally comes from hell.have you thought for a moment that maybe IT'S MAGIC AIN'T GOTTA TO EXPLAIN SHIT?
>>26871805You get mind control, immortality and a shit ton of other powers depending on source. Vampirism has always been a shit-tier curse unless you're about muh humanity
>>26874852Buffy (at least in the first season) had the right idea about it :When you become a Vampire, there's not much left of who you were before.The beast has your body and memories but none of your morality or values.The vampire is just a bloodthirsty monster of pure sadistic evil.This doesn't prevent them to become complex characters over time but most of them see no insentive into NOT being evil as fuck because it's really fun for them.Blade was also going this road in the movies.
>>26871020Why is it that whenever I see artwork of this vampire, she always has a huge gut?
>>26874924I much prefer the idea that becoming a vampire doesn't change your personality, but that doesn't stop people from turning into giant dicks, because that's normally what happens when you give people too much power.
But... wasn't the vampire with the candy princess?
>>26875232No, that's what tumblr thinks.
>>26865680Only a little.
>>26874593Cross only works if the wielder has faith in it.
I dedicate myself to becoming a lich to attain the magical proficiency to create infinite blood for her, then realize I no longer have a dick. She then leaves me for a mummy.
>>26875345Mummies have dicks but they don't have blood. Sounds like she's a little slow.
>>26875240That's what I think.Mmmm.
>>26865640Most settings seem to actually follow this rule.
>>26865640Bram Stoker also ruled that dying via Dracula drinking your blood takes about a week or more.
>>26870650Perhaps they can supplement their diet with animal blood.
>>26876177Oh please don't turn this into Twilight.
>>26876190Vampires drinking animal blood is far far older than twilight. Most settings that do it though have human blood much more delicious and/or contain something vampires need not found in animals so they can't go full animal.
>>26865471It's not about the blood loss, or the refresh rate of red blood cells that makes this idea unworkable.In many versions of vampirism, it is the multiple feedings that puts you under the thrall of the vampire in question.The resource I remember most vividly places the number at 3. Get fed on by a vampire on three separate occasions and you can forget about free will. But not only that, you're pretty much boned after the first feeding, since it makes you more susceptible to all their mental powers (hypnotism, illusions, suggestions, outright domination). Without outside interference, if the vampire gets you once, future attempts are easier, not harder.So I'm game to say that you'd end up your vampire waifu's pet in short order after she conned you into this agreement.
>>26876284Presumably in this setting such abilities don't exist or are at least controlled by the vampire. There would be trust issues about it sure. But you're already trusting them to not kill you when they have their teeth in your neck.
>>26876284I prefer the VTM version: being fed from doesn't put you under the thrall of the vampire, it's being fed the vampire's blood that does it.It also ties nicely into this lore though because being fed from leaves a person confused and disoriented, during which time it would be easy to force-feed a person the vampire's blood.
>>26875232Bubblegum _clearly_ has the hots for Marceline. Other than a minor case of jealousy, it's somewhat less clear what Marceline makes of p-bubs.Finn is clearly going to lose an arm at some point, and probably wind up with his dimensional equivlalent of Roslinen. Because frankly all the bitches he knows at the moment are completely cray-cray.
>>26876190It's been done elsewhere. I remember a series where a new vampire (half-vampire, actually) works his way up to being comfortable with feeding on people by holding his thirst off with animal blood. I'm sure there are other examples of it somewhere.
>>26876325"Honey... do I love you because I love you, or because you used dark magics on me?"Lily flipped the page of the dimestore love novel, not looking up from her scandalous moment with the well-toned stable boy from the Wine Country."Well, sweetie, most relationships are built on a mix of facetiousness and half-truths anyway, so you wouldn't really be able to tell, now would you?""...I ...guess? But I still would like to know."She looked up, glanced at her human boyfriend, pouty and scrawny, and giggled softly."Aww... I love how cute humans are about their free wills.""Hey now, I-"She put down the book and glided on over her lover. Eduardo could wait."I'm not being facetious, it really is one of the things I like about you. Most monsters or thralls or whatever serve the Dark Lord unquestionably. They say he'll kill us if we don't, but between you and me, I don't think a lot of them know how to say no to authority. But humans, they always want to know that their choices are their own or not. It's not that they want the choices to all be their own, they just want to know who's pulling the strings."She stopped gliding to gaze upside down at his butt, before he spun around and pulled her up to his eyes by her shirt."W-wwell, what's wrong with that? I want to know if how I feel about you is real."She smiled a fanged grin."When you met me all the months ago in the park, did you feel attracted to me there?" She said, softly kicking her legs as she spun around him, her long raven hair flowing like delicate fins in an invisible sea."I need you to be serious, here, stop doing the spinny-dancey-whatever thing."She spun around and rested on his shoulder, "But you LIKE the spinny-dancey-whatever thing~ You used to anyway...""I... look, I just want to know if this is real. I want this to work out with some truth."She began to sniff his neck, and he placed a hand on her face, "Am I'm NOT giving you any of my blood until I get a straight answer."
>>26877367Lily finally stepped down on the ground. The teasing clearly wasn't loosening him up on this, and she was getting frustrated too. "Humans get so dependent on knowledge sometimes. Knowledge this, knowledge that. Doesn't matter if the knowledge is bogus, is it? You just want an answer. We feel good right? What's wrong with feeling good?""If it's based on a lie, it's not worth feeling!"She rolled her eyes. "Bloody Catholics. Well, Mr. High and Mighty and Proper, if I was going to make you into my slave, I'd just do it. If you were under my control, would we even be having this conversation.""H-how do I know you aren't controlling this conversation now, just to implant a memory in my head to make it seem li-""OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE, ARE YOU CALVINIST NOW?!?!" She snarled, "ARE YOU JUST LOOKING FOR A SIGN OR A CODEWORD THAT I'M TRICKING YOU OR SOMETHING? WHAT IS THIS EVEN ABOUT?!?""I feel entitled to an answer.""You're entitled to my foot up your ass Mark. You're talking about trust and you won't take the first step?""I did.""Where?""By asking for honesty.""Then be honest with me.""You first.""On what?""Anything.""...your car smells like mold.""And?""No, you gotta say something now.""And?""UGH, you pull stupid stuff like this testing us!""AND?""AND WHAT? WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO SAY?""WHAT YOU NEVER FUCKING SAY!!!""WELL I DON'T SAY A LOT OF THINGS, MARK, YOU HAVE TO BE MORE FUCKING SPECIFIC!!!""THAT YOU LOVE ME BACK!!!"
>>26877379"...what?"Mark sat down, and ran his fingers through his hair. "Everytime I say I love you, you smile and nod or kiss me or giggle or whatever, and I can't tell anymore if you love me back. I mean, you're already an immortal monster of evil, I'm gambling motives here anyway, but yeah... I'd like some knowledge on that."Lily stood there, then floated into Mark's lap, nuzzling under her arms."Mark... it's complicated, all right? I do really feel the same way, but... well...""Well, what?""Saying it's... hard. I mean, I've already lived three times longer than you, and you're not the first human I've had... you just break too easily, all right? You're nice and squishy and fun for a long time, but you just fall apart so easily, and I can't make you get that close knowing you're going to die too... I know some can, but it feels..."Lily bit her lip and looked on."So... if I don't say it, I can keep enough distance to not feel so worked up about... that."She glared back at Mark."Do you feel better with the knowledge now, asshole?"Mark placed a hand on Lily's head, and one on her legs."...yes."Suddenly he yanked her up in the air and blew raspberries on her stomach. She yelped at the surprise, then started laughing and jerking about at the sensation. Finally he stopped and they embraced, snogging like teenagers."Honesty is nice, isn't it?""How do you know I was being honest?""Were you?""Was I?""Well, here's some brutal honesty about you and me." Mark then whispered a few things in Lily's ear, that we will not be repeating because they are very naughty and Mark is a bad Catholic who should stop dating vampires. Let's just say that Lily, an undead demon corpse, blushed at them."Can I bite you a little?""Only if I get to bite you.""Oooh, Mark~ You're so much more passionate than that Eduardo boy~"Mark backed off, "Wait, who's Eduardo?""Shut up and get me to bed before I eat you, Thrall."
>>26877376You not heard of a Damphr before?
>>26877460That's when you cut a vampire and a human in two then sew them together, right?
>>26870650However with the increased speed and reflexes, vampires could get pretty high income jobs.
>>26877528Do you think they'd have higher or lower health premiums? Anemia probably boosts it up, but the inability to get a lot of stuff probably a bonus.
>>26877376Basically, it was where an older vampire would partially turn someone, giving them some of the physical enhancement without the weakness to sunlight. The half-vampire would typically guard their mentor during the day.

>>26878895I always wondered about that, I just wasn't sure who'd ripped off who.
>>26878909Anne Rice started writing her vampire books in the 70's, White Wolf made V:tM in 1991.The 1st edition rulebook is BLATANTLY an exercise in playing Anne Rice style vampires, with just enough of the serial numbers filed off so she couldn't sue. And with a conscious effort made to lift a few ideas from Lost Boys and a few other iconic vampire settings to disguise the influences a bit more.They kind of tone it back in later books (which was a very good thing), but a lot of the "OH WHOA I AM A VAMPIRE ANGST ANGST! LOOK AT ME BEING ALL STYLISH AND TRAGIC!" came straight out of Rice.Along with a heavy emphasis on "IT'S NOT GAY IF TWO MALE VAMPIRES MAKE OUT AND SHARE BLOOD, VAMPIRES DON'T HAVE SEX SO GENDER DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING AT ALL! HONEST! THEY TOTALLY DON'T RETAIN ANY SEXUAL MORES FROM THEIR MORTAL LIVES AT ALL! STOP BEING SO HUNG UP ON GENDER NORMS!"
I gotta say, as this makes scientific sense. In a way i think of it more as a matter of "craving" than actual "need" to drink blood. Kind of like when you get your favorite bag of potato chips. Yeah okay, i could survive eating only five or six chips. If i don't do a good job of controlling myself however, before I know it I've finished off 3/4 of the bag.So yes, I could see it...but imagine trying to eat just one potato chip and have the bag just sit next to you and taunt you all day long...or have sex with you...
>>26879090If I could have sex with it I probably wouldn't care nearly as much about the chips so that works out from my perspective.
