For the MUD, see Lost Souls MUDLost Souls is a 1992 novel by Poppy Z. Brite, about a not-nearly-legal goth teenager who's name is Jason but who calls himself Nothing. Nothing runs away from home in search of a band he's obsessed with called Lost Souls?, and while hitchhiking he's picked up by every goth kid's dream... a trio of real vampires.
Jumped at the Call: Nothing is thrilled to be a vampire, and the only thing he's mournful about is his lack of fangs. Actually, most of the vampires are shown to enjoy their powers and near-immortality, or at least are reigned to it.
Karma Houdini: Steve never gets arrested for raping Ann. Also, Nothing never gets any kind of comeuppance for helping the trio kill Laine, despite the fact that he was supposedly his best friend. He never even seemed to feel sad.
Our Vampires Are Different: Notably, you're not turned into a vampire, you're born one. Vampires are a predatory subspecies of humanity that have been living alongside, breeding with, and preying upon humans for eons. In fact, the four main vampires in the book (Zillah, Molochai, Twig, and Nothing) have so much human ancestry that almost all the 'classic' vampire traits have been bred out of them. In one scene, a much younger vampire envies Christian, who is several hundred years old, because he has fangs.
