Who You Callin' A Fang Banger?
As a fan of most things vampire related, naturally I watch True Blood (as well as having read the books). An episode I recently watched (I'll be as un-spoilery as possible for those of you that haven't seen it yet) dealt with one of the human characters being shouted at and called names, i.e. "fang banger" for being with a vampire. The human's response was excellent – basically saying that regardless of whether their partner was a vampire or not, they were still a person with thoughts and feelings and they loved them regardless. They didn't care what anyone thought.
What I am going to talk about is what a bitch I've unwittingly been to some of my characters. If vampires (and indeed, my story) were real, then Meg and Grace from BITE WITH HEIGHT would surely despise me. You see, Meg's a vampire AND a lesbian and without giving too much away, she and Grace get it together. So they'd be in major trouble if they were real, subject to name calling such as 'lezzer' and Grace a 'fang banger.' Oops.
But I don't feel too bad, really. For one, they're not real. And secondly, if they were, I'm pretty sure they'd take it with a pinch of salt just like the characters in True Blood. Both girls are real kick-ass chicks who won't take shit from anyone. And of course, with Meg's background, they'd be wise not to piss her off...
...and if you want to know what I'm talking about, you'll have to read the story, won't you?
When Meg spots a young woman alone in the Pigalle district of Paris at night, she’s intrigued. She has to know her story and find out why she looks so sad and alone. After introducing herself, Meg realizes that she and Grace have a lot in common. But when they decide to go and grab a drink together, they discover a mutual love that could bond them forever.
