Fear and Desire Humans for centuries have been drawn to vampires. From sitting around the fire in the time before the industrial revolution, to sitting around the table and in modern times watching it on the big screen. The folk tales of the undead that hunt at night, sucking the blood of the innocent has haunted and intrigued the human psyche for as long folklore has been in existence. Being afraid of what is being told to them, yet being unable to pull away. The pull and push affect that these mystical monsters have on the human aura is undeniable. Modern day vampires have a cult like following. When the Twilight series came out, the people where divided between team Jacob and team Edward. Teenage girls would swoon over these monsters, dangerous yet alluring.
This show represents a type of “love” that is called pseudo love, which is defined according to Mickel and Hall (2008). Pseudo love is loving without depth. It is surface love. Mickel and Hall state the idea, “I love you only so long as you make me feel good. The moment you make me feel bad or unhappy, I question my love for you” (2008, pg. 31). Pseudo love is being found more in society because people are refusing to have depth with one another. This relates perfectly to The Bachelor, any possible love that is found on this show is only pseudo love. This is because if there are any problems that arise between the bachelor and one of the women, the bachelor simply eliminates the woman from the show and continues onto the next girl. The Bachelor is promoting pseudo love within society. Pseudo love presents the false expectancy that love is the answer to all problems. The

Vampires have been around for centuries, they represent the fear of many things such as sexuality, race, gender, etc. and above all, they stand for the fear of diseases. Vampires have once been the symbol of horror due to their terrific depictions and were described as a threat to the humanity. Throughout time, the image of vampire has changed dramatically from a monstrous, inhumanely creature that doesn’t belong to human society to such an attractive and adaptive figure that expresses more of the human side than the evil. They developed human feelings, senses, and live within our society. Modern vampire movies are often more romantic and “sympathetic” comparing to the past.

First, to compare and contrast Twilight and The Vampire Diaries, the main characters need to be analyzed. Bella Swan and Edward Cullen are the main characters in the Twilight movies, while Elena Gilbert and Stefan and Damon Salvatore are the main characters in The Vampire Diaries. Both Elena and Bella are humans at the beginning of each series and fall in love with a vampire. However, the similarities between the two female characters end there. Elena is an older sibling and very protective of her younger brother, Jeremy. Elena is also very popular and has many friends. Elena makes it very clear in the series that she does not want to be a vampire. Bella, on the other hand, wants to become a

Introduction: The Reality TV Show I chose for this assignment is The Bachelor. This TV show is very dramatic and definitely leaves you on the edge of your seat. The Bachelor is about one man who is looking to find love, and approximately 20 women competing for his love. In the season I chose to watch, Sean Lowe is the bachelor. Each week he sends another women home until he is left with his future wife. The three episodes I chose to watch were the last three of the season. Which included the home town dates, the final two, and then the finale, where Sean picked the women he wants to spend the rest of his life with. This show is definitely odd; however, it is extremely entertaining. The audience for this show is typically female teenagers and
Fascination is something that is either obtainable or unobtainable. When looking into vampires and werewolves, it is something that we know is most likely not real. But, it can be real in the sense of what the monsters symbolize and through their actions we can feel a sense of understanding. In the film, Let the Right One In, the vampire is a little girl named Eli who befriends a boy named Oskar. Even though Eli is considered a monster and did kill people, it is hard not to sympathize with her and the relationship she has with Oskar. Eli was isolated because she is a vampire, and Oskar was just misunderstood and bullied which is why he did not have any friends until he met Eli. That connection and idea of people being together despite differences is something that intrigues others. Another way vampires

In order for a supernatural show to be the best it needs to have some form of forbidden love. One example of this is in The Vampire Diaries between two characters, Elena Gilbert and Stefan Salvatore.

Another example is in the
