Playing With / Lesbian Vampire

Go To

Basic Trope: A vampiress with an appetite for other women.

  • Straight: Sangria seduces (and ultimately bites) Alice.
  • Exaggerated: Sangria has a whole harem of young women that she's "turned".
  • Downplayed:
    • Sangria will bite men, but slakes her 'other' thirst with women, and feeding from them is a much more intimate affair: she approaches biting men the way one would eating a Happy Meal.
    • She's not metaphorical about being a lesbian. She will suck blood from either gender, but goes to singles bars for women when she wants to get laid.
  • Justified:
  • Inverted:
  • Gender Inverted: Vlad seduces (and ultimately bites) Bob.
  • Subverted:
    • Sangria is bitten by Vlad and considers biting her human boyfriend.
    • Sangria does bite other women but only sees them as a food source and considers having sexual relations with them to be bestiality
    • Advertisement:
    • Sangria considers herself straight and views even feeding on women to be too sensual, so dates and dines on men exclusively.
  • Double Subverted:
    • But, in this setting, a vampire can only survive on the blood of virgin women, so Sangria has no other choice but to seek those out instead.
    • Sangria can survive on anybody's blood, but is currently stuck inside a women's prison, which forces Situational Sexuality and makes women the obvious target of choice as they're already easy pickings (not to mention a cellmate who's RIGHT THERE). Sangria shrugs and takes the path of least resistance.
  • Parodied:
    • Sangria seduces women who are on their periods and gets her supply of blood that way.
    • Sangria is a Butch Lesbian or, alternatively, has a thing for these. Or both.
    • She's "experimenting" with just drinking womens' blood.
  • Zig Zagged: Sangria initially considers herself straight, but is under the impression that vampires can only survive on the blood of virgin women. Turns out that it's virgins in general. Ironically, Sangria finds this out at about the same time that she comes out as pansexual.
  • Averted:
    • Sangria is a human, lesbian or not, and stays that way.
    • Sangria bites anyone in a rather vicious and totally nonsexual manner.
  • Enforced: Girl-on-Girl Is Hot.
  • Lampshaded: "Alice, your blood is so tasty..."
  • Invoked: Sangria learns that vampires can only subsist on blood taken from virgin women, and needs to seek those out or else she'll "starve".
  • Exploited:
    • Alice and Bob are vampire slayers, and Alice feigns attraction to Sangria to put her off guard.
    • Sangria employs a form of misdirection with this: whenever people get the feeling she's hiding something, she comes out as lesbian and most investigators assume it's just that (provided plausible explanation). This gives her the added bonus of knowing just who is poking their noses into her business.
  • Defied:
    • Women eat garlic and bring crosses to ward Sangria off.
    • She doesn't wish to bite humans, and so only bites animals.
    • To please her conservative vampire sires, she takes conversion therapy so that she will suck the blood of men and women.
  • Discussed: "Lesbian Vampire...insert tasteless joke about oral sex and periods here!"
  • Conversed: "I wonder what happens if a male vampire bites a man? Does his victim "turn" gay like that too?
  • Implied: Sangria may have become a vampire. Few days later, women were attacked with bite marks as evidence.
  • Deconstructed: An angry mob sets out to burn all lesbians, thinking that all lesbians must be vampires.
  • Reconstructed: In this universe, they are.
  • Played For Drama: Any relevant vampire and romance plot around Sangria and her victims.
  • Played For Laughs: Sangria fulfills nearly all the humorous lesbian stereotypes, even the more obscure ones. She meets Alice at a Tegan & Sara concert, and on their third date, she picks Alice up in a U-Haul. When they arrive at Sangria's Haunted Castle, Sangria tells Alice she needs to "come out" to her, and Alice says, "Um, hey, Captain Obvious, I'd kinda noticed —" "No, vait, not that! I'm a vampire."
