TWILIGHT II - Atlanta, GA - March 7-9, 2008:

The next TWILIGHT (II) will be held on March 7-9, 2008 in Atlanta, Georgia, hosted by the Atlanta Vampire Alliance (House AVA) - and the Atlanta Vampire & Non-Conformists Meetup Group - This event will run for the entire weekend and feature presentations from a variety of community members including but not limited to Michelle Belanger, the Atlanta Vampire Alliance, and a variety of other local and national groups, discussion panels that will engage all attendees, and nightly entertainment. Information concerning hotel and lodging accommodations, driving directions or airport info, discussion format, presenters, entertainment, and complete literary will be provided exclusively to those who are able to attend the event (please RSVP for this event after joining the group). This is an event you do not want to miss if you are seriously invested into the community and appreciative of in-depth discussions on vampirism, energy work, community affairs, and other related topics.

Please direct this information to those living in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, North & South Carolina, Tennessee, other neighboring states, and all individuals who may be able to arrange transportation to attend this event.

TWILIGHT is a formal gathering of individuals involved in vampirism (practical and academic) coordinated by Merticus of the Atlanta Vampire Alliance (House AVA) and Suscitatio Enteprises, LLC, and Daemonox of the Vampirism Community eList and The Wretched eList (California Vampires). The goal is to bring together the community's serious and sane for discussion, knowledge exchange, networking, and social engagement. This is an invite only event, and we reserve the right to refuse access to anyone. Please visit the following web link and complete the questions asked to join.

The first TWILIGHT (I) was hosted by Daemonox of the Vampirism eList, Wretched, and the Los Angeles Vampire Meetup Group -; and was held in Los Angeles, CA on October 30, 2007. It was a huge success with over 50 vampires in attendance; representative of some of the most notable, dedicated, and active members of our community. Some came as far away as South Carolina, Ohio, Georgia, Northern California, etc. to attend this gathering. The evening began with a formal banquet style dinner where we were seated at two long tables adorned in red and black. After dinner and networking everyone gathered upstairs for presentations and discussions that would last well into the early morning hours. Michelle Belanger of House Kheperu - and author of The Psychic Vampire Codex along with Merticus and Zero of Suscitatio Enterprises, LLC - / Atlanta Vampire Alliance (House AVA) -; authors of the Vampirism & Energy Work Research Study presented on topics ranging from the vampire subculture to ongoing research into the vampiric condition. After these multimedia (PowerPoint) and question/answer presentations concluded everyone was divided into small groups of approx. 5-8 persons to discuss a variety of topics; first in the small groups and then between the entire group in an open and civil debate format. A basic overview of the topics included were:

1.) Evolution Of The Vampire Community
2.) The Community & Publicity
3.) The Otherkin Community
4.) Vampires; Hierarchies & Elders
5.) Vampirism; Lifestyle, Religion, Counterculture, Or Something Else?
6.) Dealing With The Media

The venue where we were gathered unfortunately closed at 2 AM and there was still approximately 30 persons discussing and debating amongst themselves. Rather than everyone disbanding for the evening some of us relocated to the parking lot where we talked for about another hour before finally turning in for the evening; after all this was a weekday.

It was truly a remarkable event to be able to gather with so many diverse and at the same time well-versed individuals within our community for serious intellectual discussions and spirited exchange. We hope to continue this tradition in Atlanta, GA this March and look forward to seeing new faces and meeting with old friends!
