The current story I’m writing is based on my dreams. They are highly inspirational. Often I’m able to do things I can’t in real life, like fly or attack someone with energy shooting out from my hands; I’m the hero trying to save lives or running from an enemy. One dream from years ago stands out to me. My consciousness was traveling through space and brought me to a station with a forcefield. On the other side of that forcefield was a vampire who wanted to get through the defenses so she could feed on the human that was there. A change in the field gave that vampire access she ran right past me to find and attack the person on board. I tried to run past her to get to the person but the vampire was faster. In that dream I failed to protect the innocent.
A dream like that makes me think of a horror story set in space where a person is sharing a ship with a deadly vampire on board. It could definitely get some reads. Especially because the vampire is a predator and not a romantic interest. I feel like some people would find that refreshing. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy a good vampire romance, The Black Dagger Brotherhood comes to mind, but there is also a group of people who want to see the horror side of the vampire. They drink blood and threaten humanity’s existence with their superior skills (depending on the story).
