A Vampire Stole My Girl!

  1. Over the last twenty years, those creatures of the night have slowly made themselves known. It's the same story predicted in countless volumes of tween literature and movies, pumped out by those who romanticized the idea of the seductive undead sneaking into their room at night to whisk them away into an unimaginable world of romance and love. Slowly, they have gained acceptance into society. Piece by piece, bit by bit they integrated themselves into our world; until they became accepted as a part of normal life.

    Yet, despite this, there are those who refuse to accept their presence. Often, these are jealous men who have deeply set abandonment issues after having their girl prance off with some pale bloodsucker. Other times, it's just good ol' fashioned prejudice. Regardless, these discontented souls take their plight to the only stage that will accept their cries of pain and outrage; the internet! A certain site by the name of VampireComplaints caters to these individuals, allowing them to post their feelings in an environment that negates the fear of retaliation. It is here that people from across the world come to make their disgust or discomfort known.

    You are one of these people. On VampireComplaints, you stumble across a certain thread that catches your eye. It's not the first time you've seen a thread like this...but, upon opening it, you see that there is more than the standard psychological breakdown. "A VAMPIRE STOLE MY GIRL!", it reads. Below is a long and painstaking message.

    It is a clarion call. A user by the name of LeatherJacket has put out this post to draw together those who suffer as they do. To put an end to the menace...and get back your girl...er...or boy. Whoever was taken by a Vampire. You get the idea.

    Ok, well, that's the breakdown of the intro for this thread! It's intended to be an anime-style parody of the Modern Fantasy genre, with our characters banding together to take away what they believe was wrongfully taken from them. In truth, "their" boy or girl abandoned them willingly...or, perhaps, never even knew that your character existed. Denying this in the fullest, these brave souls set out to reclaim what they never really had; and to kill some goddamn Vampires along the way!

    Now, our little group will be based in a city with a relatively high Vampire population; called Birchgrove. For the sake of ease and simplicity, all of our characters will be in the city at the beginning. Whether they came there at LeatherJacket's summons, or happened to live there before noticing the message is up to you. I plan to start the thread off with them meeting up for the first time and their interactions thereafter. Mind you, our characters won't be certified badasses right off the bat...but, if things go well...they will be, before long, loppin' off heads and breakin (stakin') hearts left and right.

    So, are you in...or are you in?
