“Bloodlines,” The Vampire Diaries: I See What You Did There.

Posted on

Last night, Jeremy and his new friend Anna discussed the local lore about vampires in Mystic Falls. Jeremy thought the Civil War-era stories were allegorical, or as he put it, “creative expression during a very volatile time”–specifically, a way to deal with the fear of Union soldiers running nighttime raids.



Jeremy: I mean, a country at war doesn’t want realism; they want fantasy. Thus, vampire fiction.

Nice!
