Vampires suck blood out of their victims, right? But what if they didn’t? What would vampires need to stay “alive” then?
Would it be possible for them to enjoy a nice, cold glass of milk? Perhaps with a dollop of chocolate stirred in? Or maybe they’d like hot chocolate with marshmallows mixed in?
Your task is to think of an alternative that changes the vampire narrative. If they don’t need blood, then they won’t drain victims of blood, killing them. They wouldn’t change their victims into vampires either.
Consider what a vampire needs to sustain itself. That means there should be something nutritional about what they consume. That rules our soda unless it’s accompanied by some type of food that provides the vitamins and minerals that vampires need.
Once you’ve settled on a “food”, then create the scene and situation that shows the vampire procuring and enjoying the drink.
Have fun with this one.
