The Tantalizing Darkside - Wait Tornado???

We all know that the creatures of the night have pretty much taken over the universe as we know it. Vampires, witches, werewolves, wizards, zombies etc. The undead, and even the freakish, have always fascinated our human intellect from Shelley to Pattinson.

The Twilight phenomenon has banked on that, and is profiting greatly off of the sexy allure of the unnatural.

First it was Ohhh Edward… then it was CHOOSE, Edward or Jacob, vampire versus werewolf. Hard pick, I know, both actors and characters have their positives and negatives. I would like to look at it on a broader spectrum, species, versus species.

There is the vampire, chilling, sleek, dark, oozing sexual power. You look into their eyes and are mesmerized by the deep, brooding soulful depths. The struggle between the life and death of blood, eternal life and a ancient culture unchanged by the test of fate.

Next the mighty, burly werewolf, strong, animalistic, a fevered heat that calls to be tamed. There is something about the wild and the untamed, the breaking of the stallion, the intensity of the inner battle the werewolf for control.
Witches and Wizards are all about the harnessing of power. Their everyday persona's are usually small, meek, eccentric, and average. That is until they learn how to harness the power of nature, spirits and the forces of good and evil.

I am going to break off here…while I was writing this blog post we received a warning of tornado sirens here in Texas. I would just like to say for the record, I would take an earthquake over a freakin tornado any day of the week. Let me explain, with an earthquake it is usually (with Japan being the exception) seconds and then done. With a tornado, you don’t know when, how, if and what. Am I going to die because a cow lands on my roof? I mean seriously…most people are the opposite but this is me!

Well unfortunately all of this drama killed the mood, so we will pick up with this next week. Till then, consider which is your favorite and why. Can you guess mine?

  1. Interesting post :)

    I have a weakness for vampires and werewolves alike. I read a lot of books in this genre and I write too :).

    "I would take an earthquake over a freakin tornado any day of the week." - uhm, maybe seconds but a lot of them and trust me they seem like aeons sometimes. And there is no warning sirens, so no possibility to take precautions or make it to safety. Actually, there is no safe place to go during an earthquake.

    "With a tornado, you don’t know when, how, if and what." - that's something that you have with earthquakes, except that it is 365 days a year, 24/7. No warning, no sirens, no time to do anything and no way to know what to do. And it's not seasonal, as with tornados. Earthquakes happen all year round. And when an earthquake hits, there is no way to know if it is a pre-quake or the main one or how many after quakes will follow. And even if one decides to go outside, there is no way to know whether it's safer outside. Anything can fall on people, cars, etc. Or the ground can open under your feet. No predictions, no warnings and it's everywhere.

    I'm not saying that tornados are better, just that I live in a seismic country and it sucks, you wouldn't want the earthquake event hanging above your head all the time, trust me.

    Thank you for sharing :)

  2. I lived in So Cal for a long time before TX, but I was never in a BIG quake just a few little ones. That probably makes a difference. Thank for the comment!
