Parents ok with vampires?

Post by Twilight*Dreamer »

Hey, I was just wondering out of curiousity if most people's parents don't mind you reading vampire stuff or if they dislike it. My parents think it's fine, which I am so grateful for, cause if I wasn't allowed to read it :shock: *starts hyperventlating* See, it's scary to even think about it.

well, i'm Christian, but my mom knows i don't believe in this vampire-hype. she knows that i'm smart enough not to go out and start drinking the blood of some psychos crazy enough to slit their wrists for that exact purpose, and so she doesn't really care at all. same goes for my dad, but he's pretty out-there himself. i mean, he wants to name his dog Yoda.
It's a lie - a kiss with open eyes.

My mom doesn't mind. Even though she refuses to admit it, she has her moments where she actually trusts me (also, my sister bought me TWILIGHT, and my mom practically worships her already, so why go against the 'holy' child?). As for my dad....Well, he could care less. So long as my room is clean and I am a presentable young lady, he's all right with what I read (crazy old Ukrainian man, incredibly traditional, that one).

Well... Once i went to a bookstore with my parents & i wanted to buy three books. The German copy of Twilight, Interview with a Vampire and Dracula.
My parents said that i couldn't have all three books because i just needed one book and i should look at my library. And they said that they did not wanted me to get in all this vampire stuff because it could cause damage to my sanity.... Sure they trust me but it just the fact that when i was younger i watched horror movies and all that stuff with my parents.
And now they cannot read those books or imagine the same i imagine when i read them... They don't know what the books are about..
OK Dracula... Everybody knows what it is about but they did not know what Twilight was about.
Now it is ok for them when i read Twilight and New Moon and other books of Stephenie because i told them how different they are from Dracula and all this typical stuff...

Me and my family aren't religious, so there were never any discussions about my sanity or things like that. And since I'm 18 they can't tell me what to do and not to do.
Funny as it is, I just had a conversation about Twilight and New Moon with my mother yesterday and we came to the conclusion that it's typical for me to read special romance novels with vampires instead of boring normal ones.
The good part about reading english romance novels is that people seeing me read Twilight don't know what it's about and are just impressed of me reading english, although it isn't difficult at all. :wink: (Jane Austen is more complicated and takes me longer)

Oh, they think I'm nuts. My mother keeps going to me (in a mournful voice) "Why don't you want to read nice books? Like 'Winnie The Pooh'?"
But the only time I had a problem was my dad looked at the back cover of Full Moon Rising, where the reviewers were raving over the "sexy vampires and horny werewolves" Stupid reviewers. I'm lucky he didn't check out the back of Rebel Angels.

Um, my mom really doesn't like vampires. She can't even sit through a movie. I think it's all the gore though... she doesn't like the whole 'biting' idea. (She's reading Twilight for me. :) I told her that if she's going to go to a signing that she has to read at least one of the books.) My dad is fine. He watches all the gorey vampire movies out there. I don't know if they would approve of my current interest in vampire literature though. I have a considerable number of vampire books sitting on my bookshelf at the moment. But they probably would just be happy that I'm reading a book for pleasure and not just because they're assignments from school.

I hope my aunt never visits... if she has a problem with Harry Potter than I don't know what she'd say about my book collection.

I'm a Christian and I love vampire books like Twilight and Vampire Kisses, etc...my parents think I'm too funny when they see me walking around with a copy of either New Moon or Twilight in my hand asking me how many times I've read them. I think it's def. ok to like all this fantasy stuff as long as you realize that it's not real and that vamps don't really exist....so, yeah, my parents are ok with all this vamp stuff :) We watched The Lost boys together earlier today actually...hehehe

My parents are okay with the whole vampire thing. My mom isn't completely thrilled, but she doesn't mind. She always asks me, "what happened to reading stories about nice, little fairies?" Of course, I still read faery stories, but I read stuff like Tithe and The Hunter's Moon, which might not really count as the "nice, little fairies" she was talking about. :lol:
