Daniel's Ghost
« Reply #31 on: May 22, 2008, 06:30:35 am »
Hi! I'm not sure if this question has been asked or not so I thought I would ask it here first. I've been looking around but could not find anything. If vampires are actually dead, why does Daniel have a ghost after Ben eats him?

And who says that vampires are actually dead?
And even if, who says that they lose their soul, what makes a ghost up?

I think that vampires neither alive nor dead, but in between, forever frozen in the act of dying.
And when they are killed at least they will complete that act, finally freeing the soul, for it to move on, or stay behind as a ghost.

A possibility, MadMacAl, but Stephan specifically says, when he asks to stay at Mercy's that "I'll be dead, I don't need pillow or blankets."
So Artangel's question is a good one.  Unless the soul remains trapped in the body that's technically dead, since it's still animated in some fashion.
We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!
But do beware the toad burps.

Hmmm. If the soul's trapped in the body then shouldn't the ghost still show the soul's last memory? That would Andre feeding on Daniel as a human. And I always assumed a vampire's body was animated by magic. Unless of course the soul is "watching" what this foreign magic is doing with it's former body, and can still be affected by what the vampire does or suffers.

I think in Blood Bound- Mercy says that the ghosts that she sees are just a remnant of their true selves like Mrs Hanna who will soon fade away after awhile. And then there is ghosts that are not aware of their surroundings but just rehash moments before their deaths, they are more like a recording. But I dont know whether these ghosts have anything similar with Daniel's ghost.

Well I think that the vampires keep at least part of their soul. Stephan said that he would be dead when he´s asleep. So I think it has more to do with the way they pass. It is unquestionable that Daniel died in a very painful way, so I think that the shock hindered Daniel´s soul form completely passing.

Ok, on about chapter 6 atm and just read about what happened in Texas. Now I've always been in the Adam camp (he has less angst) but I do feel bad for Sam. He wants to be a father but just can't get a break.

I in no way agree with what he did to Mercy, but I do think he needs to just have something good happen to him.

And in the UK we are devoid of the smutty or even non smutty cover. But they have a US cover BB in Borders near where I live so now I find it to be my solemn duty to investigate the smut level of it.

You could end your anguish by reading Iron Kissed, of course...  ;) I'm sure you'll be satisfied with how it ends, romance-wise...

Newbie question--just finished Blood Bound & loved it, but am I the only one who thought maybe, since Littleton's ability to alter memories was brought up at the start, we might find out ere the end that he only made Ben THINK he ate Daniel? Or was there some tell I missed regarding that?
