There’s some vamp talkin’ goin. I just put up some stuff on bratty vampires in Buffy. Here’s a snipet:
“I just want to say that when I figured out that James Marsters was in fact, not English, a small part of me just died. It just dragged itself into a bed, curled up, and died. But that’s not what this post is going to be about.
This is about how, for lack of a better word Spike is a total brat. This is perhaps because he’s a punk, or something rebellious. But really, the dude’s a twerp. And you know what else? Drusilla is more than a bat-shit crazy vampire and fetish object. She’s a scary child. Like, a scary brat child with high-functioning autism and mean streak.”
