Vampires versus Werewolves
As a fan of paranormal romance I like to read about both vampires and werewolves but I have to say I lean toward the more animalistic werewolves. It seems anyone who is a fan of paranormal fiction prefers one to the other. I often wonder why that is. Perhaps because we feel more like one or the other? Showing one face to the world like the werewolf while hiding a wild craving for freedom. Or watching quietly from the shadows waiting for the perfect time to make your move, like the vampire. Maybe it's the other way around. Maybe we're drawn to the one that's least like us. We need a little wildness in our life so we gravitate to the werewolves. Or our lives are too crazy and we're drawn to the power and patience of vampires.
Or maybe it's the fact that vampires need us to live that makes them sexy and the fact that werewolves don't need us at all does the same for them. Werewolves, while vicious, are still family-oriented, often traveling in packs while vampires are usually (excuse the pun) lone wolf types. They don't deal well with others and desire solitude. It would be difficult to find two more opposite types of creatures and yet we love them both. They have a dark allure that both attracts and frightens. Perhaps it's simply that they're the ultimate bad boys, and we all love bad boys. Who knows? If you would like to share your opinion I'd love to hear from you.
