** Relatedly, there's a pair of WhiteWolf vampire short stories having to do with artists. One kills himself before he can be made into a vampire, in order to avoid CreativeSterility and/or having to give up the sun. One who is already a vampire then becomes obsessed with sunlight and starts staying up late every dawn to try to watch it rise, only barely managing to drag herself away with growing burns each time. The implication is that eventually it will become this trope.
