You wouldn't say that if you actually had to face a similar kind of prejudice on a regular basis.

Soooo, Maria i the last panel looks like avvy material to me! :x

Also, that seems to have been a darn short night! I at least had the impression not much time passed between them going to bed and Layla pouncing on Brooke to drink from here. And they've been up since.

Also, it seems not one comic can pass without someone being offended by a line or a deed that the majority just finds funny... >_>

if Mrs delacroix is calling it a phase, judging from her reactions, she's still in it >w>, so its not so much a phase as a state of being anyway XD

Mrs Delacroix is not crushing the spirit of who her children are anyway with the phrase. The words are there but the context and meaning and essence is absolutely different. Specially given that its coming from someone who's "phase" has obviously never passed.

Personally, given the other materials produced by the creative team, I think it's safe to say that no matter how the statement could be taken, it doesn't reflect any lack of acceptance on the part of the writers.

You know, I like the expression on Layla's face in panel 3 (pre-"Oh No, Mom!"). She can be quite lovely when she isn't trying to be the alpha vamp.

Since Carmilla, I think...

By the way, Maria should be proud of her daughter: if she hadn't walked in, Layla would have... well, eaten a Succubus and a Melusine on the same night. Guess you never did this, Vamp Mom!
By the way, the "it's just a phase" cliché hasn't bothered me, coming from such a charming (and a little airheaded) character. Besides, it seems that, in her case, the cliché matches her real (ok, fictionally real) past, so it actually doesn't bother me and the delighted way she remembers it gained her all my forgiveness (oh, Maria, Maria, maybe it's not just a phase).
And, since we're speaking of personal experiences, I can say that, when I was younger, every single time I came out to a friend of mine, I had to hear this f***ing sentence (and they thought they were comforting me), and the same cliché coming from a conceited and crypto-homophobic terapist I was sent to, yes, it really made me furious too. That's why I fully understand everyone getting pissed off by the prejudice this strip recalls.
But still, this is a comic and we owe the girls' hilariuos set of expression in last panel to Maria's cliché younger years, so I won't complain.
So no kiss :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( And "That will be for some other (time)"???? THAT'S TEASING, you meanies!!!!

In the Vampire RPG (at least VtM, haven't looked at the NWOD), it's explained that all the pleasures of life are lost to a vampire. Sex, food, rest, exercise... Anything that used to make you start pumping endorphins no longer works because, well, you're dead after all. But it's all eclipsed by the sheer ecstasy of drinking blood. In a universe with these assumptions, it would make sense that vampires become bi, as sexuality becomes devoid of personal meaning for them, just an elaborate bait to catch potential preys.


The EC vampires are obviously completely different from VtM vampires, of course. Since after all they are born as vampires rather than transformed, which makes them a weird human species rather than undead.

Seems like Troika has taken some liberties with the setting in Bloodlines.

If you squint too much at any system for the supernatural, it all starts falling apart because of its assumptions and contradictions.

Like the above, for example. Soooo, endorphins no longer work, because you're dead? What about nerve conduction? Since that's another thing that only works when you are alive, do vampires also have no sensory input, including touch, hearing, and sight? No way to tell your muscles what to do either, assuming that your brain was working, which it isn't, because your dead.

The best thing to do as a reader when you are dealing with fantasy elements in a story is to not look too closely and accept that whatever the author says works, works. Save your analysis for things that are a little more familiar, like motivations, interpersonal relationships, and spelling errors. ;)

Historical note= all the Beatles DVDs and concert films were proving rather embarrassing to plenty of moms in the UK= because their teenage daughters noticed them as teens screaming at the concerts and made sure to mention it to their moms! Bringing up the past can be rather eventful!
