Vampire Romance

Vampire romance is a branch of the paranormal romance subgenre, made famous by release of Twilight in 2005 by Stephanie Meyer. Since its release, he Twilight series has gained immense popularity and commercial success around the world.

Why are we fascinated by vampires, you ask?

Reader’s fascination with vampires lies partly in the portrayal of these supernatural beings as enigmatic and suave characters. The idea that a fantastic, enigmatic and gorgeous otherworldly being can fall madly in love with a regular, plain human creates a delightful escape for readers who identifies themselves with the protagonist.

To truly fall into the “romance” genre, the narrative must conclude in either a happy-for-now ending, or a happily-ever-after ending. This is also often the case with vampire romance stories.

Vampire Romance Writing Prompts

Feel like all the tropes in this subgenre have all been explored? Fear not because I have a bunch of vampire prompts and ideas percolating on the back of my mind that I’m gonna share with you!

I hope the ideas below are original. However, undoubtedly with the popularity of this trope, something similar could have existed out there already. But sometimes the smallest details matter, and make all the difference!

Please note that the genders in these starters are just placeholders and do not mean to enforce any hurtful stereotypes nor offend anyone.

Modern Vampire Romance Prompts

Here are some vampire romance writing prompts set in the modern or urban settings, because the idea of having vampires walking amongst us, riding on the train with us, working or studying alongside us, is tantalizing. Read on!

1. A vampire who works as a phlebotomist and helps him/herself to a gulp or two of blood every now and then, and an antsy, slightly needle-phobic first-time blood donor who completely enthralls them. (Originally appeared on my post 25 Non-Cliché Meet Cute Ideas.)

2. A vampire who’s tired of the taste of blood and tries to reprogram him/herself to stop consuming blood despite their body craving for it, and the physician he/she employs to help them with the addiction.

3. A vampire who opens a blood bar, serving a variety of blood-flavored cocktails and drinks for fellow vampires who grow tired of consuming plain, ol’ blood. And walks in a regular human who mistakes the blood bar for a regular bar.

4. A vampire mafia. The vampire’s immortality means that the usual dangers related to the mafia world don’t affect them at all, and the ruthless nature of a vampire makes them a successful mob boss.

5. A vampire mafia and the oblivious reporter who interviews him/her for an article about his/her business activities. When a sudden snowstorm strikes and traps the reporter in the vampire’s mansion, what kind of danger lurk in the shadows, and what happens when it’s clear that the vampire can’t resist to taste the reporter’s blood? (Originally appeared on my post Mafia Romance Story Ideas.)

6. A vampire needs medical attention due to a gunshot to his/her shoulder or stomach (something pretty grave that they have to seek medical attention for). But their supernatural anatomy only confuses the physician who treats them. How would they convince the doctor to keep their secret identity a secret?

7. A prompt idea based on the picture below: An oblivious museum curator accidentally resurrect an old vampire count who’s hidden inside of an artefact belonging to the museum, and now she must attempt to hide the incident, and him, and his appetite for blood, from her manager for fear of being fired due to the blunder.

Enemies to Lovers Vampire Romance Prompts

Here are some vampire romance writing prompts exploring the delicious enemies-to-lovers trope!

1. A vampire who creates a formula for a special sunscreen and makes bank doing it. Until a keen competitor starts to gnaw at his/her market share.

2. Rather than enemies to lovers, this prompt is more like lovers to enemies (and hopefully, back at being lovers again?) A vampire who tries to hide the fact that he’s a vampire from his fiancĂ©e, and the fiancĂ©e, who tries to hide the fact that she’s a witch from him.

3. A vampire hunts for the Holy Grail, rumored to contain traces of Christ’s blood and allegedly boost a vampire’s abilities when consumed. When another relic hunter enters the scene, the hunt for the artifact becomes a hunt for each other.

4. A medieval physician, who’s secretly a vampire, practices bloodletting, which is a ruse for him/her for an easy access to blood. What happens when he/she drinks blood from a patient and becomes specifically addicted to that patient’s blood?

5. In an alternate world, vampires are hunted because injecting their blood into a human’s system will grant the human immortality. Write a story between a vampire hunter and the vampire whom they hunt.

6. A vampire who leans hard on the “invitation only” rule and gets him/herself invited to all sorts of events like weddings, funerals, birthdays, which then will give them the free pass to do anything they like there. Until a suspecting receptionist/venue manager at a certain venue tries to get them banned from the place.

7. A prompt idea based on the picture below. A vampire hunter whose fiancé or fiancée is turned into a vampire after a disturbing incident.

Other Vampire Romance Prompts

Here are some vampire romance writing prompts and story ideas exploring various other themes such as trope subversions as well as trope exploitations!

1. A vampire who doesn’t need an invitation to come into someone’s house because… it used to be his/her house. When a new owner moves in, the vampire attempts to scare them into leaving, but instead they find themselves drawn to the newcomer.

2. In an alternate world, all of the old vampire clichĂ©s are wrong. Garlics don’t repel them, crucifixes don’t scare them, and sunlight doesn’t burn them. Write about an inefficient vampire hunter who doesn’t get the memo and believes all the wrong clichĂ©s about vampires. However, it only makes him/her all the more endearing to one particular vampire who plays along with those misconceptions.

3. Since vampires can’t see themselves in the mirror, their appearances are all disheveled and unkempt. One particular vampire hires a stylist, who’s continually baffled at the vampire’s lack of sense of style, and moreover, at the lack of mirrors in their home.

4. A vampire who transforms into a bat during an emergency and gets stuck in that form for a time due to fatigue, and the zoologist or biologist or zookeeper who captures them.

5. A vampire unknowingly bites a werewolf, who bites the vampire back. And now they’re both half vampire, half werewolf. The former enemies now have no choice but to band together and show each other the ropes to the new world they’re introducing to the other.

6. A prompt idea based on the picture below. What happens when a vampire hunter gifts a female vampire to a wealthy collector of rare creatures and oddities?

Those are some vampire romance writing prompts that hopefully will spark your imagination! One last word of reminder is to keep the ending happy-for-now or happily-ever-after. Or else, some readers who expect “romance” might feel “betrayed”.

Give the vampire characters in this particular genre some redeeming qualities in order to justify the happy ending, be it happy for now or a happy ever after.

That’s all I have for now!
