Can vampires shapeshift too?

It is interesting that one of the similarities between werewolves and vampires as noted in books and literature and history is the vampire’s so-called ability to shapeshift or transform. Most literature which references this ability of the vampire, typically cites a few things that vampires can transform into, most commonly they include bat and mist. Interestingly, some old references also cite that vampires can shapeshift into snakes and wolves. Yes, wolves!

I would like to point out however, that what I’ve read indicates that if vampires do shapeshift (and I’ve found some references that not all can do it), it is not in the way that werewolves do. With werewolves, the transformation is part of who a werewolf is. It is a natural process that many times cannot be controlled (although as we’ve discussed, experience can lead to control). Vampires however, don’t do a true transformation, they do not go through the physical process that a werewolf would. They do not actually truly become a wolf, or bat, but rather they shift their shape for a short period of time. The shapeshift is just that – a shift, not a transformation. They never gain the senses of the being they become, they do not gain the power of the creature they become – and in fact, they do not even “become” the being, but rather just the semblance of the being which in many cases can only be retained for a short period of time.

    i recently got bitten i so haven’t changed yet

    the reason i got bitten is 3 packs of wolves moved into the forest behind my house and i got pissed yesterday and went into the forest broke some plants and on my way out i saw someone running in front of me then when i went to look there were 4 huge wolves they cornered me and one bit me then my eyes started changing color at random and i started preferring meat but that may not be the first time i was bitten because 2 huge wolves got into my house and one but they didn’t break anything

    I’m thinking the first time i got bit whatever makes you turn into a werewolf wasn’t enough to complete the change but some of the symptoms showed up such as eyes changing colors preference for meat then i got bit again in the forest and the all the symptoms showed up but much more severe… i cant even eat chocolate anymore D: ill throw up if i do

    Ok yes you need blood fang sharpner if you are a true vampire. You need not kill lots of mortals willingly shed blood just keep your donours safe and check for STD’s regularly… As for the lycans here… I have to say if my Brother razor found this site He’d be offended He is a lycan and would tell you bitting is not a turning… It’s a way of marking some one with potential for turning. Long story I should actually say half brother.

    Shadows keep you all safe.

  13. pklett92 says:

    Lukesf2, arent you the one from bmg who said you’ve been a wolf since birth? I’m assuming thats the same luke. You said most of the wolves in your neighborhood are still pups, who dont know there wolves yet…whats going on? I never herd of wolves behind your house…you’ll need to explain all that to me later.

    @Victor Blood Kiss: Interesting. I want to find out more – where can I reach you? FB? MySpace?

    Darkness Blessings!

    I think it should probably be pointed out that being bitten by a werewolf does not suddenly make you one. Now, if you already had something like a “werewolf gene” inside of you and then got bitten that could bring it out. I like to call this process “turning” and think of it as like werewolf puberty lol.

  17. Re-searcha says:

    pklett, the reason why lukesf2 is telling you contradictory stories, is because he is JUST TELLING YOU STORIES, they are not true buddy. The reason why he said he was a wolf at birth, and now he is saying he was just bitten last night is because he forgot his first story.

  18. Alice Black says:

    do yuo have any ideas where i could find some of the writings about vampires who turn into snakes? i while back i had a dream about vampires who were able to snakes. (which was slightly discomforting considering i have vivid dreams) but id never even thought about it before and was trying to find something about it.

How have werewolves survived?

There is evidence that werewolves existed even before vampires, so how have they survived over the centuries without becoming extinct?...
