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.)
