If you believed that we got all the vampire series we could out of Julie Plec you were sorely mistaken… and I don`t know if that`s a good thing tbh!
While I am sure we can all agree that „Vampire Academy” getting a series is a fantastic news, I for one am not convinced that Julie Plec was a good choice for the production team.
Sure… she gave us „TVD” and „The Originals”, however when you look at all the things that came out about how she treated certain actors and co-workers while on those shows it should give you pause.
Are we getting the best we can out of an adaptation with drama on the set? Debatable…
Silver lining – it`s been announced that the project will be a shared effort with Marguerite MacIntyre. Our favourite Mistic Falls sheriff has been involved in the production over on the other „TVD” spinn-off, „Legacies”, so I believe we are in for something that will feel quite familiar.
As it has just been announced that „Vampire Academy” is getting an addaptation, we have not been teased with any casting posibilities and have not been given any specific timeframe of when filming might start.All we can go on for now is the literature the series will be based on; Vampire Academy is a series of books by Richelle Mead that has span over 6 novels.
The univers is a mix-and-match of various ideas from previous creations that managed to morph into an interesting concept – props to the authos on this one.
In 2014 the first novel was adapted in a movie, however it did not fare as well as expected.
In the region of the Pyrénées between Tardets and Oloron, we can find a castle, nowadays in ruins, with the name of “Château du Vampire”.
There used to live a young aristocrat – Sir Lahonce – who had married a beautiful shepherd girl, named Marguerite.
The legend concerning the couple is presented in “Les Cimetières” by Paul Sébillot  and a larger version can be found in “Les Légendes des Pyrénées” by Ernest de Garay from 1857.
The two lovers have a tragic encounter in the forest. Marguerite – sickened with love [because of her not knowing if the nobleman has feeling for her] in the first part of the legend, seams to regain her straight for a while.
Lahonce on the other hand becomes paler and weaker by the day and the girl flees to his bedside to tend to him.
When she returns to the cottage she shares with her old mother she is not alone. She falls to the same illness as her lover before her and the mother is desperate to recognize the specter of Lahonce feeding on Marguerite as she sleeps.
When she tried to warn her daughter about the trap she was walking in, the poor woman was considered mad and that is how Marguerite made the trip back to the castle and awaited her wedding day – growing sicker by the night.
On her wedding night, when she was about to fall asleep around midnight, the girl heard outside [in the courtyard] a sinister howling.
She pretended to sleep and saw her husband, troubled and excited, go to the window saying: “I’m coming, I’m coming!”
He went out and returned 2 hours later, as cold as a corpse. The same happened the second night and the third as well.
The young woman followed him and saw him entering a cemetery, where, accompanied by a black dog, he went to a fresh grave.
She then saw her husband and the dog at the open grave eating a corpse. Disgusted by the scene she rushed to her chambers and climbed in bed just in time to pretend she was asleep when the vampire returned.
Sensing she was too cold to have been in bed for all the time he was away Lahonce tried to start a conversation but his young wife was too frightened to play pretend.
The next day she wanted to go see her mother thinking that the old woman would know what to advise her but the vampire told her that he will summon her mother to the castle.
Using the shadows of the night and disguised as to trick her trust, the undead got the truth out of his bride and in turned killed her.
That night he and his dog feasted on her flesh.

No, my kind of vampires don`t sparkle in the sun and don`t have emo hairdos. They most certainly don`t wear tons of make-up and don`t chase deer in the forest! For me, the vampire is the bloodthirsty mythological creature that inspired the gothic novels and brought to surface the fears of the subconscious. For me… the image of the vampire is Norferatu or Dracula, surely not Edward Cullen. The only romantic shades that I can accept are those given by Anne Rice in the Vampire Chronicles.
