Buffy the Vampire Slayer Mentors feature prominently in the Gothic genre. From Dr Van Helsing in Bram Stoker's Dracula, who leads the young heroes into their quest to annihilate the Count, to Rupert Giles, the Watcher in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, older and more experienced adults have provided essential guidance for the younger protagonists of the genre. The differences in media of expression and the subsequent adaptations from novel to television series has not affected the presence of this character, more than a hundred years after the publication of Dracula in 1897. What also unites the novel and the series is their fin-de-siècle resonance.

In Tim Burton’s movie, “Edward Scissorhands,” he claims that when one seems different from the other, then people do not accept them for who they are because they are not like them and they are not willing to accept a new change that has come to their life. He illustrates this by making Edward stand out,so he has him only wearing black and white whereas all the other people are wearing colourful clothes; he says that Jim is mad at Edward because Edward stole his girlfriend from, then he makes fun of him for not being human behind his back because he is a machine; he moreover implies that Edward looks dark and scary when really he is sweet, nice, and unique, however, the town is colourful but the people are not, they are just bland and cruel people. Burton exaggerates the fact that Edward is different from the others by adding scissors for hands and making him wear all black and have pale skin making him look like he has a scary look even though he is sweet like candy, while the townspeople are colourful but cruel like villains; he additionally points out that people have to tolerate him but Kim has accepted him for he is, he demonstrates that by letting people know that even though Edward is different, he can still love. Although the author has advised that everyone should be treated fairly, he has more suggested that some people are not used the change that Edward has brought to this town; Burton has advanced that everyone is different and everyone should be treated fairly no matter what they look like or what problems they have.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a supernatural drama series lasting from March of 1997 to May of 2003 was a popular television show created by Joss Whedon.

The show was so successful despite being on a small network that it led to hundred of tie-in products such as novels, comics, and video games according to Wikipedia. The show went as far as winning many awards and achievements including a total of three Emmys including Outstanding Writing for the episode of “Hush”. In the episode of “Hush” there are monsters called the “gentlemen” who appear in the town and steal everyone’s voice. Buffy and her friends, who already lacked communication had to defeat those monsters using a source to interactive way in order to get it done.

The fact that Buffy has taken on the role of the "take charge" leader (usually a role taken by a male), but other characters are called upon to take on the commonplace beliefs of gender roles and behavior. Willow (played by Alyson Hannigan) has recently gone through a change in her sexuality. Once a heterosexual high school student, after going through a difficult break-up with her boyfriend, "becomes" a lesbian. This makes it quite difficult to understand whether Willow "became" a lesbian because she felt that that was her sexual orientation all along, and originally she was only following what her peers and society believed in when being a lesbian was not as accepted as it is now, or because she did not know how else to handle her difficult break up, and "decided" that being a lesbian was easy because it was right there in front of her. One stereotype that is not acknowledged within this scenario is that neither female (Willow and Tara, her girlfriend) are "butch" in their behaviors, as many believe lesbians to be. Both women are exactly the same as who they were before "realizing" their

Buffy the Vampire Slayer While the first seasons of Buffy are structured around an external threat seeking to corrupt the order of the world, later the source of the threat becomes increasingly internal, and the characters must embrace a side of themselves which is evil, irrational, or dangerous. When Giles kills an arguably innocent Ben, he does not suffer the moral ambiguity that Willow encounters when she kills a guilty Warren. Willow has to deal with an evil internal to her in a way Giles does not, and this apparent discrepancy is the result of a general evolution of the series, rather than a double standard.

The act of speaking and communicating are two very distinct actions. It is a common misconception that the only way to communicate with someone is by verbally speaking to them; but how would people communicate if one lost the ability to speak? The episode “Hush” in Buffy the Vampire Slayer--
Have you ever been in a situation where you know something is the wrong thing to do but you do it anyways even though there could be severe consequences? That is the position Alex Rider is put in. In this journal I will be questioning, predicting, characterizing, and evaluating.

The story is of a teenage girl who is chosen to be the next Slayer, endowed with supernatural strength in order to aide her on her quest, because: “In every generation there is a Chosen One. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer”("Welcome to the Hellmouth"). In this series, the Slayer is known as Buffy Summers, and the series follows her as she faces one apocalypse after another, graduating school, dealing with boys and life and death and all the issues that one expects to arise from a coming of age series. What makes Buffy unique is that unlike the rest of the Slayers from the generations before her, she has a collection of friends who help her answer her calling, and together, they create an enthralling cast that keeps the viewers coming back to relive each episode. Feminists have hailed Buffy as being one of the most prominent series that deals with feminist issues and provides viewers with a strong female figurehead; others, however, look at the show with a more critical eye, wondering just what kind of feminism and feminist ideals are being portrayed in the series. This paper will touch upon most of these ideas, yet for now, the focus will be on the character of Buffy herself. .
Critical Analysis of Interview with the Vampire Charismatic. Charming. Sensual. Beautiful. Would you ever use these adjectives to describe a vampire? The common theme in portraying vampires in literature has always involved depictions of great violence, ugliness, and fear. Novels involving vampires never portrayed the vampire as a heroic character, but rather as the villain who was then destroyed in the end. Stereotypical vampires terrorized towns, lived in grim, dark, towering castles and turned into bats when in trouble. Authors were simply not inspired to build a tale around the life of a vampire, his shortcomings, his doubts, his fears. Rather, authors used the vampire as a metaphor for evil that resides in humanity.
