October Questions 3: Become a Dawn Fang Vampire

War of Nytefall

So, I was scratching my head for a while trying to figure out a theme for the October Money posts.  I also wanted to try and do some kind of promos for War of Nytefall, which limited my choices.  The character interviews were always duds and I do teasers every Tuesday.  What else could I do?

Well, the Questions 3 stuff worked out pretty well last October.  Though, I’m noticing some people just ignore the questions and give their opinion on the overall topic.  So, I’m going to try to explain the intention of these posts again.

This is all about fun and thinking about an answer to each question.  They are typically made to have you think, especially outside of your usual lane.  Not the most comfortable thing, but this is an activity that was usually done to help authors branch out.  We get stuck in our creative ruts and comfort zones without realizing it.  A simple question or 3 can revive energy, reduce writer’s block, and maybe even lead to something good that we never saw coming.

This is going to be an easy one to get people into the groove.  This is all about the powers of a Dawn Fang vampire.  These are the vampires of Windemere, who are the focal point of War of Nytefall.  They are immune to the sun, incredibly powerful, can feed without killing, eat human food, have heartbeats, can breed through sex, and are able to live among mortals without going berserk.  All of that is their baseline, so you get an idea that they are not your destructive, hunger driven monsters.

Dawn Fangs also have 3 unique powers.  They have one from each category of body, mind, and aura/magic.  Body is a power that is physical in nature.  Mind is one that is psychic or sensory.  Aura/magic is a really unique ability that might not fall into the other two categories so easily.  For example, Mab Winthrop has retractable claws (body), speaking to the dead (mind), and shadow traveling (aura/magic).  Another example would be Luther Grathan who has Raven form (body), tasting emotions (mind), and phantom clones (aura/magic).  Hope that all helps.

    1. I would be some sort of bird for the power of flight. Most likely an eagle.
    2. Ability to communicate with animals
    3. The ability to meld two animals together like B’wana Beast on Batman: The Brave and the Bold (who also communicates with animals).

  2. My body power would be the ability to change into any animal. I would be able to do this at will in response to any condition.
    My mind power would be the ability to inject thoughts into other’s minds. I could, for example, inject the thinking that I was a friend into the mind of my most bitter enemy. It would come in handy, especially if that enemy trapped me.
    My aura/magic power would be the ability to become invisible when the need arises. Invisibility would be great magic for spying on enemies or simply disappearing in times of danger.
