About

Well this is just something of a new porject I wanted to try and see how it goes, it is an exploration into darkness and what could be considered today as gothic themes, but viewing it from an histocal point of view, though I may also include in the future a bit of litaeary and perhaps even film dicussion of the topcis included here.

    Typed in “how can you spot a vampire” for a bit of fun and your website came up, it rocks! I have some poetry that I have done recently that I may submit.

    “Bitter Rose” and
    “The Mask that I Wear”

    Will have to keep on writing more, now that I have found your website.

    Keep up the good work

  6. My website will be up and running tommorrow or Monday. I am a writer, my current book just went to sale today. I do write about vampires, they are my favorite subject. I found your site in reguards to some research I’m doing for my current novel. It is about a vampire and I couldn’t agree with you more about the traditional vampire. I think women should have more of a role for their own beauty and strength. I am breaking tradition with my new novel. Changing the rules so to speak…

    Your grammar needs some improvement but an interesting concept nonetheless.

  8. Bob says:

    I’d suggest spell checking your work more extensively. Interesting project though.

    The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…
    The glory of God
    The heavens declare the glory of God; and the
    firmament sheweth His handywork. Day unto day uttereth
    speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There
    is no speech nor language, where their voice is not
    heard. Psalm 19:1

    The failure of Man
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of
    God; Romans 3:23

    The punishment of Sin
    For the wages of sin is death; Romans 6:23

    The torment of Death
    …the dead, small and great, stand before God; and
    the books were opened: and another book was opened,
    which is the book of life: and the dead were judged
    out of those things which were written in the books,
    according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead
    which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the
    dead which were in them: and they were judged every
    man according to their works. And death and hell were
    cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
    And whosoever was not found written in the book of
    life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation
    20:12-15

    The way of Salvation
    Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of
    Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth,
    whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even
    by Him… This is the stone which was set at nought of
    you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
    Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is
    none other name under heaven given among men, whereby
    we must be saved. Acts 4:10-12

    The simplicity of the Gospel
    Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be
    saved, Acts 16:31

  10. I am much impressed by your articles at your site here. But I haven’t been through all of them yet. I just discovered your site today. I find your article on the true, historical St. Germain to be very enlightening.

    But one article I don’t agree with is the one titled “The Child Vampire.” There **are** child vampires in folklore. In the folklore of Romania, Greece, and the Slavic countries, an infant or child who was born out of wedlock and died or who died unbaptized – including babies who died at birth or by miscarriage – became a vampire. I recall that in a book written in French – “Le Vampire en Roumanie” (“The Vampire in Romania”) by Adriene Cremain [Sp?] – there is a special case for such children. They are said to cause devastating thunder storms as well as being nightstalkers. The author applies the name moroi to these vampires, but that name actually is applied to at least one other class of Romanian vampires. It seems to depend on the place and people in Romania who use the term. And “moroi” is often used as a general term for all Romanian vampires.
    There is also a specdial case of a child vampire in German folklore.

    An even more special case of child vampires is in the folklore of the Philipines. That, too, is a child who died unbaptized. But that seems to be the **only** type of “undead” Philipine vampire that is relatively well known. (But there is quite a variety of “living” (not undead), blood sucking witches and warlocks in Philipine lore. And I have a little bit about one such who continues on after death.)

    I will be happy to send you more details on this – including the titles and authors etc. of my sources (books and journal articles) – if you wish.

    By the way, I used to have a website on vampire in folk beliefs. I named it “Strigoi’s Tomb.” I’m thinking now of resurrecting it. — Patrick

  17. J.Rush says:

    You know how I found this lush garden of fallen wit, no need to go into details (but I thank my fallen stars you allowed me entrance).

    I disagree with your “critics.” Learning the ropes of things like “grammar” and “spelling” is the very act of writing itself. If we shared nothing, we’d learn nothing. The idea that someone writes alone in a churchly vault somewhere with a copy of the Bible nearby for grammatical inspirtaion is, as we dark ones know, quite silly and quite outdated. Nope, the only way toward mastery of anything is do, do, do. Taking one look at the sad sentence structure of your critics reveals all. Ignore those zombies.

    Thank you for providing the world a window.

  18. ladyofspiders says:

    Hahah I thank you greatly and I am glad you droped into this dark little corner of mine.

  19. vigorous says:

    to me
    quite seems like
    world (mankind)
    settle value these days
    to pic-up the peace or
    will guide themself
    useless to deception

  24. lilostitch says:

    hi , so I wanted to know if I can cite your views in this research paper I am working on. It is about the impact of witchcraft. In other words, it’s basically the introduction of witchcraft and generally, everything about it. How would I input your sources though? as in, in-text citation format? would it be (crocodile) or idk . I am not sure. but please help. Do i need your name or just use (crocodile)?

  25. Miss Crocodile says:

    Yes you may reference my writings in your paper. You can credit me either as Crocodile or you can use A. Mason (obviously my first initial and last name) as that might sound a bit more professional for your paper. Either or works for me.

  26. Well, well, look who made it to WP….my old friend Croc. Oh my, I seem to remember quite a few provocative activities between us…

  27. Miss Crocodile says:

    It was certainly interesting, I cannot deny that.

  28. Ummmmmmmmhhhhmmmmmmmmmmm, I’ll say.
