Poll about vampires

I was reading this post by barbara_hambly about vampires and it started me wondering. What do people love and hate about vampire characters, hence I have made a poll. Please feel free to comment as well :).

I do like my vampires to have fangs ... defanging vamps puts me off.

Who is your all time favourite fictional vampire? (any media)

Who is you all time least favourite fictional vampire? (any media)



Edit 1: LOL - a minute in and already Edward Cullen has made an appearance in the worst category ... I knew it!

Edit 2: Loving to see who your fav and least fav vamps are ... 5 in and no doubles :).

Edit 3: Poor Edward ... he does seem to be getting a lot of votes for least favourite ;). Also, two votes for Asher (AB), two votes for Eric (TB) and two votes for David (LB) for fav - both very good choices.

Edit 4: Okay the other dislike = 'sparkling' made me laugh out loud.

Edit 5: Well Ed is still in the lead, but Bill Compton is trying to catch up for least fav vamp :).
In favs, Louis (Vamp Chron) seems to be doing well. I was always disappointed AR changed her focus to Lestat, I really like Louis.
