    I'm getting annoyed with this. Why is it that any vampire saga that becomes successful brings in werewolves in the next season/movie/book. I mean there's Twilight, True Blood, The Vampire Diaries... the list goes on. Even Harry Potter just had to introduce werewolves in book 3.

    Can't they think of anything more original? It's getting so stupidly predictable.

    Harry Potter isn't a vampire saga...

    But I suppose it's to mix things up a bit. It might get a bit boring if they just focus on one supernatural 'creature'.

    In literature, vampires and werewolves have been enemies. It's nothing new. It isn't just successful vampire sagas.

    Thats kind of like saying why are Nazis always the enemies in WW2 films/games/books. It's just how it is man originality can still be achieved easily. True Blood for example which rocked

      The werewolves in Twilight aren't even proper werewolves. They're crappy shapeshifters.

      There were wolves in Dracula, which did have some influence on later vampire literature. Dracula could command all the 'meaner' creatures, and even turn into a wolf or a bat. Anyway, they do belong to the same kind of genre (literature/films based on superstition- if one superstition is true, why shouldn't they all be, etc.).

      Vampires DON'T sparkle.

      I prefer my gothic vampire novels.
      Anne Rice is a PROPER Vampire novelist.
      Lestat - beauty incarnate.

      The end.

      EDIT: Vampires and werewolves have always been fictional, battling forces - however, I sort of agree. They really don't need to be introduced in everything!
