Yeah, mythical creatures are cool. Some people just go too far to make them "cute."

Ezekiel - Butterfly DT Male
Schnappi - Blue & Green HMPK Male
Midnight - Forest Green & Blue HM Male
Yuki-Onna - Blue & Clear CT Female
Powder - White & Clear DeT Male

Like, vampires: Traditionally, they were undead, like zombies, and sucked blood. Other variations sucked out life energy, but the point is, they were scary. There were, at some point, entire communities that believed in them, and they were not thinking "Ooh, he's hot, and he SPARKLES!" No, they were thinking "I'd better stake grandma in the ground before she gets up and tries to kill us all." If you're going to create your own mythos, and they're interesting, fine. But coming up with some half-butted "science" to justify it, no. That's just not good storytelling.

Uhhhh... well, I'd have to say vampires. Done right, you *can* change them and make the story interesting, and I enjoy that.

Aww you seriously remind me of my 3 year old. Not being mean or anything. Looking young will benefit you as you get older though, so take it as a compliment!
