When you date a vampire, you have to expect a little danger now and then — but these girls are living in fear 24/7!
Are you the kind of girl who stays up at night dreaming of the vampire that will come into your bedroom and sweep you off your feet? Well, wake up! Girls who get involved with vampires either end up hurt or dead, and our favorite three — The Vampire Diaries‘ Elena (Nina Dobrev), Twilight‘s Bella (Kristen Stewart) and True Blood‘s Sookie (Anna Paquin) — are all living proof of that fact. Their lives might be less exciting afterwards, but you have to admit they’d all be better off if they stuck to dating their own kind. You know, humans.
Bella, the Twilight saga (Chance of death: It’ll definitely happen — she wants to become a vampire!)
Those of you who have read all of Stephenie Meyers‘ books in the Twilight saga know how things will turn out for Bella Swan in the end — but for now, shes in a heap of trouble. A whole flock of fanged folk are after her, including the ancient vampire coven of the Volturi. They resent the Cullens’ vegetarian lifestyle and want Bella dead because of her ‘unnatural’ relationship with them. And what Dakota Fanning wants, Dakota Fanning gets!
More importantly, Bella wants Edward (Robert Pattinson) to turn her into a vampire, and as we all know, you kind of have to get killed in order to complete the transition. So… as long as Bella is able to convince Edward to do it — and most of you know how all that goes — her chance of death is almost totally certain.
Elena, The Vampire Diaries (Chance of death: Crazy high! I can’t believe she’s still alive!)
Keeping up with your schoolwork is hard enough, but it’s even more difficult to focus on your studies when you’ve got the world’s oldest vampire looking for you with sharpened fangs. Just ask Elena Gilbert, the prettiest girl in Mystic Falls, Va., and the object of desire for vampire brothers Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder.) Not only is Klaus, one of the “original” vampires, out to get her — but she’s also constantly tormented by Stefan and Damon’s ex, Katherine, who’s literally her doppleganger.
She’s managed to stay alive this long, but Elena’s starting to crack: she’s fully ready to hand herself over to her enemies if it means her family and friends will be left unharmed. A mortal girl with a death wish up against the oldest vampire of all time? Elena’s current situation redefines “screwed.”
Sookie, True Blood (Chance of death: Low. She’s safe for now.)
Vampires love the taste of human blood… but they love the taste of fairy blood even more, so you can imagine how much it must suck (pun intended) to be Sookie Stackhouse, the human-fairy hybrid caught in a love triangle with vampires Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard.)
Fortunately for Sookie, her fairy blood also gives her some bitchin’ powers to protect herself with. She recently helped defeat evil vampire Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) before rejecting both Bill and Eric, and disappearing to the safety of fairy land to live with her winged brethren. She’s out of harm’s way for now, but we’ll see what kind of dangers season four will bring this summer.
So tell us, ladies: Which of these girls needs to wake up and smell the blood… on their boyfriend’s breath? If Bella, Elena and Sookie stay with these guys, they’re about 10,000 percent more likely to end up dead.
