* OurVampiresAreDifferent:

to:

* OurVampiresAreDifferent:OurVampiresAreDifferent: The vampires drink human blood, but can survive on animal blood or if necessary eggs as well. They are afraid of the sun and it remains uncertain if sun light would kill them, since the psychologist's desensibilisation program is never tested in practice. A spear through the heart would kill these vampires (as well as any living creature) and they don't like garlic. Throughout the day, the vampires in this story are unable to move and look dead for the curious observer. Their powers include: Telekinesis ([[VampireMonarch Freddy]] can shut a door without even looking at it), super strength (Rudolph can shove a wardrobe in front of a door, while Frederick can lift a person by just two fingers under a chin), hypnosis, flight, and shape-shifting.
