The Supernatural: What Would You Be?


This is a bit of a different post for me, but I thought I'd share it since it's something that fascinates me and I've been obsessed with since I was a kid. I don't believe in the supernatural (and it's totally cool if you do) but I do like reading about it and watching supernatural TV/films. I even took a module during my second year at uni on supernatural literature; I bloody loved it, and it exposed me to lots of novels that I probably wouldn't have known about.

So, let's take this post on a journey and let's enter another universe, a land where powers and magical creatures walk/fly/exist. 

What would you be?

Do you walk amongst humans, blending in but needing blood to survive? Are you immortal? Are you controlled by the moon? Do you have powers? Can you cast spells and make potions? Do you control things with your mind? Can you travel through time? Are you a mythical creature? If you could be anything, what would you choose?

My answer is simple as I already share so many similarities - I'd be a vampire. I'm pale af, I stay up all night, I like to bite people - okay, that last one was a lie, but I'm sure I would if I had to. I like garlic but it doesn't like me, so the age old myth of vampire repellent would work on me. My whole wardrobe is practically black, I'm mysterious (I know I'm not, but got with me on this), I could seduce people (probably), and although being immortal isn't the biggest turn-on, I could probably cope with that. I'd just be a loner and go to sleep in a cave for hundreds of years to get away from mankind. I totally wouldn't say no to the speed and the mind compulsion either. Getting somewhere at the speed of light is the polar opposite of hobbling on crutches, so give me that super speed now.

There's plenty of downsides, obviously, blood sucking, killing (although there's a few people I wouldn't mind slicing right now), the lack of heartbeat...but I think I could cope with that; outliving everyone you know. But I think I'd make an awesome vampire. Lurking in the shadows, being a moody cow, reliving my emo phase; yeah, vampirism, come at me. 

What supernatural being would you be?

  1. I'd definitely be a werewolf because I love movies about them so much, just watching them makes me feel special and powerful! Great post, btw. Happy Monday ! :)xx

  3. This post is great! Had me giggling :) 'Reliving my emo phase' really made me laugh because my emo days have been on my mind a lot lately, especially with thinking My Chemical Romance were reuniting! :D I can relate to so much of what you said so I think I'd probably be a vampire too, but it would also be awesome to be a witch. To be able to cast spells and put curses on people, to be able to talk to animals and make potions; it would be awesome! x

  4. I'd be a vampire! My family always joke that I actually am a vampire because I'm pale, always really cold and I have heightened senses (I can literally hear people blinking...) except I love garlic so that part wouldn't really work on me.

  5. I would be the most awkward vampire EVER. I have zero seduction skills, zero grace, and I am so not mysterious. I do work nights though, so that's a plus. I feel like it would be an issue when a patient was bleeding or I had to start an IV, though. Also, I would probably be the last person suspected as a vampire due to my lack of prowess. Haha!

  6. Vampire, that way I could be spared looking in the mirror any more, I can agree on the always wearing black (with the occasional dark grey for variety though). Also, I could ditch my glasses, vampires never wear glasses.

    Mages though, now that would rock...
