Fangs: Can't Live Without Them! (Contest included.)
Imagine you're rushing to catch the bus and the rain is pouring down. A tall handsome man holds his umbrella over you. You look up. He smiles and you notice fangs. Are you horrified? Or as you look into his wonderful eyes, is it love at first sight?
Imagine a neighborhood stray is knocking over your garbage cans. You rush out with a broom to chase him off. The huge drooling dog snarls at you. You back up. He advances. Suddenly something whooshes past you knocking down the dog. You run but can't help turning when the dog races away yelping. A huge gray wolf with golden eyes is staring at you in your driveway. Then a large handsome man is standing there instead. The same golden eyes. You can't breathe. Is it because you're scared? Or is it because your heart's racing betrays the excitement rushing through you?
Okay, I think you get what's happening here. It's that initial connection between the heroine and hero. In the first scene, it's his manners and old world charm. Fewer and fewer men display manners anymore, so those that do are particularly noticeable. In the second, it's the rescue and those eyes. Women can forgive a lot of faults including fangs, if he's good looking, well mannered, brave and courageous, a man that thinks of others above himself. Ooh, it gives me the shivers. With vampires, you have the promise of immortality, be young and beautiful forever. With werewolves, you have that sheer animal heat, the loyalty and he loves to be rubbed. LOL (I had to add that in.)
That's why we love them and see beyond the fangs.
