Apparently my unconscious mind is taking a break from zombies.
Last night's dreams featured a big, creepy house, and vampires. Not the sparkly kind; not even the aristocratic kind. No, these vampires were... mutable. Very, very mutable. They made werewolves look like positive amateurs when it came to shapechanging.
There were human(-seeming) vampires, giant spider vampires, creepy tentacle vampires, and I don't know what all else. I think some of them had wings, sometimes. There were four or five of them, at least, which is way more vampires than I ever want to be stuck in a house with - especially if they're going to turn into giant spiders and chase people around.
On the plus side, they could be killed with steel - it was just a matter of finding the heart. If we'd had to do the stake-and-behead method, I don't think any of us would have made it.
