ECM Vampire Text

Back to ECM Vampire

     This wiki-page is created to gather information and combine our efforts to make the wiki-page Vampire be the best page about vampires, vampyre, and the kindred of the Undead Clan there is on the Internet.

     See the writing rules on Elftown Creature Marathon. Help correcting each others' texts, but if you want to do big changes, it's often better to copy the page to a suggestion-page, or ask first. If you create a new page like vampire_anatomy or vampire by Silverfire name it exactly like that, and not something like "Heddas vamp ana". It will of course be replaced if someone comes up with a better page or adds to your page, but please don't kill them for it ;)

     So if you have any kind of text, image, link or anything that can help, please add it here or make a comment about it! People who help out a lot will be considered part of the work and will get credited on the best VAMPIRE-page on the Internet when we're done with it. And we'll also select the best contributor (Moderators can't, but we'll help as much as we can and we'll vote).

And remember: It's not just you against the web. It's also Elftown against the world!

2007-02-17 [SilverFire]: Question: what are we counting as classical literature? (basically: Does Bram Stoker's Dracula come under 'classical' literature?

2007-02-22 [Artsieladie]: 3rd paragraph, 3rd line down: "best pegasus-page on the Internet"? Shouldn't this be: "best vampire-page on the Internet"? :P

2007-02-22 [xido]: agreed, and fixed. Thanks!  ;)

2007-02-23 [Artsieladie]: YW! I could have gone & done it, but I don't like to touch anything unless I feel sure I have the permission to do so & at the time, I wasn't sure. :)

2007-02-25 [xido]: That's okay. Consider your permission granted to all ECM pages. You are a huge help, and I appreciate it.

Next step is advertising for entrants. We should hit up [Hedda] for his News Crew members to post the ECM Vampire....

2007-02-27 [Hedda]: Consider [Hedda] hit up <img:>

2007-02-27 [xido]: Oh dang, he IS hit up. x.op

2007-02-27 [NamelessMerc]: Hah, he's always one step ahead.

Though I do have an issue with 'vampyre' here. Vampyres (as far as I know, feel free to correct me) are classically demons. The trend to use the word as an association to vampires is partly to do with the spelling and their method of killing. last time I checked, vampyres suck souls from people.

As I said before, I could be completely off, so yeah...

2007-02-27 [Fireblade K'Chona]: ...I have a lovely sestina about vampires that's just kind of sitting on my poetry page...

2007-02-28 [stevedoyle]: I've got a poem you can have. Where do I post it?

2007-02-28 [SilverFire]: If you place your poem on a wiki with an obviouse name (one including the word 'Vampire', would be good :D) and link it from Vampire Poetry, that'd be good (since that was how it was done for the Pegasus marathon, I'm assuming we're doing the same here.)

2007-02-28 [Zardra]: here's something little (this was really quickly written so I will probably add more when I have actually time =P)
anne rice's vampires

2007-03-01 [Artsieladie]: Vampire Poetry is a working link now. :)

2007-03-01 [xido]: great! ;)

2007-03-01 [Artsieladie]: *nods* :)

2007-03-01 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: What about vampire mythology? Like a page with details about different view points on vampire creation nad what makes a vampire (feeding habits etc.)

2007-03-01 [SilverFire]: If it's the view of fiction authors, then it should go on: fiction / fantasy literature or classical / historical literature (pages created when we have content to put on them) if it's actual mythology then we can create a Vampire mythology page. :)

2007-03-02 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: it's a mixture really.. how about i create a kinda test page and if someone is willing to read through it they can either move bits to the right secrion (or ask me to move them) and if it IS mythology then change the page title... I might do two one on biology as well.. Thanks for the help SilverFire it's appreciated!

2007-03-02 [SilverFire]: I'm quite happy to read through a page if you create it, and I'm sure some of the other moderators would too, so go for it. :)

2007-03-02 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: cool! thanks! =D i'll get started on it!

2007-03-03 [Skife]: Heh I remember doing a whole paper on historical/folklore vampires verses dracula and pre dracula vampires of literature. Hmm... this could actually be fun.

2007-03-09 [Sue Falkenkralle]: Hi, I started the movie page, but of couse it needs work

2007-03-14 [FlowerGirl21]: I have written an article, reflecting on reality...more or less 'how they came into the world'...I don't know if you feel this is useful? It's currently at Vampires Fiction or Reality

2007-03-20 [Sue Falkenkralle]: I think you should add it [FlowerGirl21], it is very intersting.

2007-03-20 [xido]: Agreed. Any contribution is a good contribution.
I am impressed with the level of effort being coordinated here with you all. Great work!

Remember, the Undead Clan is of course accepting new members as well, and the Clan has the option of submitting a page that was created by more than 2-3 people.

Media from this page and the other ECM Vampire sessions will be usable on the Clan page as well. Feel free to join or help out there as you feel comfortable. ;)

Good luck everyone, and glad to see such great work!

2007-03-20 [FlowerGirl21]: I wanted too...but I'm not sure where to add it -blush-

2007-03-20 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: Just add it in the links section.. that seems to be the place for vampire info that doesn't have anywhere else to live! ^^

2007-03-30 [nivek1767]: Where would one put their own experiences in the vampirism lifestyle??? Please message me with the info. I am a true to life vampyre.

2007-03-30 [nivek1767]: for a series of shorts on the greatest vampire story there is but thats only if you are willing to wade through the rants on the authors life

2007-03-30 [FlowerGirl21]: The link doesn't work

2007-03-30 [Sue Falkenkralle]: Because of the dot. try

2007-04-02 [EvelynRain]: Do you want to know about Vampires as a myth or real life Vampyre? I know some stuff about the myth and real life stuff. :)

2007-04-02 [Artsieladie]: I think to know about both would be interesting. :D

2007-04-03 [xido]: This is true. We want it all. Every last bit of it. Write us the whole Encyclopedia Vampirica if you want. I am sure all will be benefitted from your ideas.

2007-04-24 [Lizisthebest]: Hey I have a story that I would like to add here but im not sure if I must send it in to someone else first or just post it. Can anyone help me out here?

2007-04-24 [SilverFire]: Post it on a separate wiki, and plonk a link here. :)

2007-04-24 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: .. i have a story but it's an on-going project and it's only just to the part about vampires... do you think it's relevant or not?
hehe i'm going to write a poem for this too! =D

2007-04-26 [Lizisthebest]: alright well there is mine, for anyone that reads it, its a current work in progress, plenty more for my story, but I'm not putting all of that on here, as it is in development right now.

2007-04-26 [xido]: Thank you all for your contributions. I will be adding my RPG Vampire statistics from D&D when the contest is completed, in case someone wanted to do it as part of their contribution(s). ;)

2007-04-30 [Wan-wan]: you should put up some good stuff like the legend of dracula. and how he was a real man, not a blood sucker and y he is known as one. he wasnt the greastest person in the world. but he did exist. but if u have any questions ask me

2007-04-30 [xido]: I watched those episodes on the History Channel. The guy was truly gruesome and heartless.

Vlad the Impaler is mentioned on Vampire text by Muerta.

2007-05-01 [just love me already]: well all that i can think of right now is queen of the damned vampires but.... thats not good enough

2007-05-03 [Torr-maat]: no one brings up White Wolf's Vampire the masquerade, To me that has better info than any movie, but it is copyrighted, but so are all of Ann Rice's books (which I think are worthless), And personally I think putting anything up about Dracula would be silly. Was he a vampire? No. You might as well but stuff up about Brad Pitt, or Tom Cruise...

2007-05-03 [Lizisthebest]: no one said that dracula was a vampire, in here at least, everyone knows he wasn't, but if you mention him in a vampire story it is just a way to mention the original at least. Basic story plot for vampires includes dracula, the good, no no the great ones, don't

2007-05-04 [xido]: I think it is worth noting where the legend of Dracula descended from, but it is not credo.

This contest session is now officially closed for entries, but the information will now be worked over into the Vampire Page from the Creature_List. Thank you all for entering, and please be patient with us as we evaluate the contributions. Myself and a panel of reviewers will look over your pages and decide the winner through a vote. ;)
Best of luck to all of you in your future writing endeavors!

2007-06-10 [Chrysilla]: For info about the Impaler, check Vlad Tepes vs Dracula, the truth about a myth <img:44166_1164144932.gif>

2007-06-10 [xido]: Very cool page. The text contest session is over, but can this be added to the final Vampire page for information?

2007-06-17 [Chrysilla]: Talking to me? If yes, then yes, you are free to add it :)
Glad to help.

2007-06-28 [xido]: Great, thanks!

2007-06-28 [Chrysilla]: You're welcome. If you need more details about Vlad just say. I could offer you a quasi-complete story of his life.

2007-07-02 [Hedda]: [xido], as you're the only one who can edit this page: Can you copy the stuff that should be on Vampire there?

2007-07-06 [xido]: That's strange. I don't remember doing that.
No problem. Still playing with this whole aligned image idea. Fun concept, but I still need to find a way to make it not be tight up against the text...

2007-08-19 [SilverFire]: I know this part is closed, but this is an interesting wiki on the subject: Vlad Tepes and Dracula, the difference for dummies

2007-08-19 [Chrysilla]: I mentioned it already, but thanks for doing so too.

2007-08-20 [SilverFire]: D'uh. That's what I get for being too busy to read previous comments. :P

2008-02-27 [Chrysilla]: I edited my comment to put the name of the other wiki :)
