In this section, I present stories of teen vampires' awakenings and experiences while going through their awakenings. If you are a teen vampire who has awakened, is awakening, or an older vampire who awakened during your teens, and would like to share your experiences, please see Awakening Stories, Page 1 for more info.
Hiya, my name is Kate and I am 15 years old.
My awakening first started about a year ago. I first noticed something different about me, I was very very pale, and growing fairer. Kids began noticing the second week of my first year of high school. The first thing they ever said to me was, "Hey whitey, is the sun your enemy?". I was bewildered that someone had actually said that to me. I'm not meaning to sound swaggering, or above anyone, because that most certainly not how I am, but I hung with the 'in crowd'. I was popular, I wore fancy preppy clothes, and hung out with the cheerleaders. I began wearing long sleeved shirts, hoodies and jackets, even when it was warm outside. The teasing only got worse. They started calling me casper and whitey. Eventually everyone began to chime in. I started to become dreadfully sad, because I started loosing my friends. They just didn't want to be around me anymore, and I couldn't understand why. Some said they felt uncomfortable around me, others said they felt as though I was changing. I found other friends, and began dressing differently. All my life, I've listened to rock, classic rock, metal and punk. So one day I went into Hot Topic and bought an Atreyu tee shirt, because I loved the band at the time. I wore it to school that week, and everyone began calling me 'Emo'. "Why am I emo?" I would yell back. They would say, "Because youre as white as a ghost, and you listen to emo bands." They would crack up, and then I would usually get the sudden urge to attack them, and rip out their throats. I never used to be so violent. I started going through constant mood swings, and anger issues. I tried controlling them, but eventually my worrying mother found out. She said to me one day, "youre going to the psychologist, this needs to stop Katie." So I began going through immense therapy. I was diagnosed with a severe case of depression and anxiety.
As the year progressed, so did my dejection and rage. I had found a new friend, but she wasn't a friend to look up to. She did drugs and had mingled with every person she met. Rumors began flying around about me being albino. People would come up to me and ask, "Is it true your really part albino. 'So-n-so' said your grandmother was full blooded albino." Of course, I denied the rumors, but they only got worse. First, I was albino, then I was a lesbian, then I had done things with a girl, then I had smoked crack at play practice. I can't even remember everything that went around about me.
One morning, I had awoken, and felt extremely thirsty, so I went downstairs and began chugging the milk gallon. It was like that every morning, from then on. I would wake up, thirsty, not hungry, as if I had eaten the most salty food on the planet that night.
Things moved exceptionally quickly then, all of it was too much to obtain at once.
I began getting migraines, true throbbing migraines, when I stepped outside into the daylight. Any type of bright luminosity made me wince. When the sun started coming out, and winter was over and it was hot outside, I would put my sunglasses on and go outside to layout and tan. The sun would start burning my skin, literally within 5 minutes. I would lie outside for 15 minutes, and come inside looking like a tomato. I would shower, and it would all peel away. I never was like that in earlier years. I would go outside, and play and get coffee brown tan. All of that faded away now.
The thirst began taking over. It was like I was dehydrated all the time. I just drank and drank, anything I could find.
Then I began noticing other changes.
When I went to take the school tests, for sight and hearing, I would not only pass them, but excel them. I had better vision then 20/20, and I can hear up to 22000 frequencies.
I didn't really realize what I had awakened to, until I watched a horror movie. When I looked at the blood, it made me go mad. When someone would cut themselves by accident, I wouldn't even be looking at it, and I could already smell it. I've been able to smell blood very easily for a year now. My friend used to cut herself, in front of me, when she was upset, and I could always smell it. It smelled rusty, but it made me thirsty. When she had gone to bed, I had pulled the razor she cut herself from, and licked it. I'd hoped she'd never had seen me do it.
My dinner tastes began changing too.
Me and my Mother always used to get well done steaks. After knowing my blood thirst, I figured it would be best to try medium. Every time we go out to eat, I would eventually go down the list, until I just started getting the steak rare.
I've noticed other things, like I smell things before others, sense things before others, and can see significantly in the dark.
And don't EVEN get me started on the pain I go through. The urges, oh the horrible urges.
I don't even sleep until 6 am now. I have to lie to my Mother, my poor caring mother because she would be terrified if she knew that I don't go to sleep until 6. She'd take me to the mental institute if she knew.
I decided writing this, because I know now that I am truthfully a vampire. When I had read various articles on vampirism, and I read that I have the same symptoms as others, I just knew. I felt relieved that there was nothing wrong with me. I was so comforted to know that others had been going through the symptoms I had gone through as well.
Im afraid I will never find someone that will be like me. Going through the same things I went, and am going through. I hope that someday, I will find someone to share the hard times with. But for now, I am alone.
I am home schooled now, and I continue going through this awakening stage.

My name is Steve and I am 18. I am a sanguinarian and I hail from the
unfortunate land of Australia (unfortunate for vampires, that is -- you
can guess why). You'll have to excuse me, as my memory isn't all that
clear on some of the events of 4 years ago.
Hi there, I'm Tim. I'm 16 and I believe for the past few months I could
For the past few years, I've been able to read people and feel how they are feeling. It's quite bothersome, really. But, as I was saying, I find myself staring at people and start feeling how they look (happy, sad, angry, etc.) and then feeling more, uhm, alive? I don't know what word I'm looking fo,r but I'm sure you get the point.
But as for the sang part of this, I've always had a love for blood. The taste, smell, and sight of it overflows me with quite a few thoughts. My other friends and I have always shared blood just for the love of it. But lately I've needed to drink it or I would be sad, angry, or a multitude of other bad emotions.
The sun has always bothered my skin and eyes and gives me headaches. I rarely go out and I can see fine at night. I can hear other things people say they don't, and so on. My doctor has even told me I'm not normal because my core temperature is always low and my heart beats slower and whatnot. (Could be from how much I weigh but hey, who knows?.)
I've always been interested in vampires. I have never had friends. The ones I do have are into vampires and the things of this sort, so I hold them close. My girlfriend has also talked to me about this. Her best friend is a sang vamp. As I was saying, over the past months things have changed in my life. The need for blood, the better sight at night, the hearing of sounds no one hears, and so on and so forth. So I do believe that I am awaking into what I really have in my body. Unlike some others though, I welcome this fully and understand what I must do for me to survive.

So begins my story. I am 13, and am enduring my awakening. The other day, I came home early with a migraine and an extremely bad nosebleed; this happened for the rest of the week. My parents think there is something wrong with me, or I am inflicting this upon myself (I'm not). They are making me take sleeping pills at night, which do not help the slightest bit. I am going through a deep depression; many things have begun to change about me and the people around me.
I realised that I am a psivamp, because the people around me are tired
and sick all the time. These headaches are not from the sun alone, I know
that much. My mother has been watching the history of the computer, and
finding that I have been on many vamp sites, so now she also thinks I'm
crazy. I am so tired all the time; I found myself sleeping in the commons
before school started. I dont think anyone saw but...I guess you never
know. I can't control myself. I'm feeding off of energy involuntarily.
I just can't help myself. Am I crazy? Am I losing it? I really need some
help right now. there are to many closed minded nils around me that I

Eerie America TV Series
Eerie America could very well be called The Fodors Travel Guidebook for The Addams Family. I read some in-depth information about the show and saw the promo, and from what I can tell, this will be an absolutely AWESOME series if they can get it off the ground. (I'm actually praying they will.) Let others know and see who can help. This is something that should happen! Let's pull together and make it so!
