!!The sequel provides examples of:

* HappilyAdopted: The fact that Toby is adopted is only mentioned briefly, and he's a bit of a MommasBoy.
* MagicalSeventhSon: Werewolves are all seventh sons, born into certain families that were originally from Spain and Portugal. Toby is a bit of an exception: he apparently has six ''biological'' older brothers, but was raised as an only child.
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: All werewolves have this, being {{Magical Seventh Son}}s. Toby's friend Amin as well.
* TropaholicsAnonymous: At the end of the book, Reuben, Toby and Sergio start their own spin-off of the vampire's support group.

to:

%%* LiteraryAgentHypothesis* LiteralMetaphor: Part of the process of becoming a vampire involves puking one's guts up -- that is to say, something really nasty (Nina spares us the details as to just ''what'') happens to the lining of the stomach, and it has to come out.

A 2009 novel by Catherine Jinks about a group of {{Vegetarian Vampire}}s. In this universe, vampires are not [[VampiresAreSexGods sex gods]], or even particularly powerful. In fact, being a vampire is basically like being chronically ill for all eternity. The vampires in the titular group don't want to harm humans, so they survive on guinea pigs and enzyme supplements. They have support group meetings every Tuesday. Then, one day, Casimir, the vampire who sired most of them, doesn't show up. He's found staked in his apartment. It's up to the Reformed Vampire Support Group to investigate the murder.

As of 2011, there is a sequel, ''The Abused Werewolf Rescue Group''.

!!This work provides examples of:
* AscendedFanboy: [[spoiler: Nefley, at the end, though playing errand boy to a bunch of undead invalids is the last thing he'd expected.]]
* AssholeVictim: Casimir. He turned most of them and was kind of a prick, so nobody's actually ''sad'' that he's dead -- only concerned that the slayer will go after the rest of them.
* BadassNormal: Father Ramon (a priest who looks after the vampires) and Estelle (the protagonist's mother).
* BoomerangBigot: Nina, the main character, often complains about her fellow vampires' (and her own) frailty, apathy, revolting eating habits and constant bickering.
* ColorMeBlack: [[spoiler: Barry and Dermid, who look down on paranormals and make a living exploiting them in gruesome ways, are turned into vampires by the end of the novel.]]
%%* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires
%%* GoodShepherd: Father Ramon
* HerCodenameWasMarySue: Zadia Bloodstone, the conventional sexy vampire heroine in Nina's novels.
* IHateYouVampireDad: The reason [[AssholeVictim nobody's sad Casimir died]]. Being a vampire is extremely unpleasant, and he's the one who inflicted it on most of the group.
%%* IShouldWriteABookAboutThis
* JerkAss: Barry and Dermid, who run an illegal werewolf fighting business. Horace has his moments too.
* LemonyNarrator: Nina, who often passes judgement on characters (including herself), skips over details she feels would gross out the reader, or adds in scenes that happened while she was absent which she was told about later.

* VampireHunter: [[spoiler:Nefley]] is a wannabe vampire slayer.
* {{Vegetarian Vampire}}s: They eat guinea pigs and take enzyme supplements.
* WeakenedByTheLight: To the point that ''street lights'' can make their eyes bleed if they don't wear sunglasses.
