We’ve imagined what the world would be like in many different instances — sans the Internet, sans books, sans Harry Potter, etc. So it was only a matter of time before we wondered how life would be without our favorite pieces of vampire fiction. You know, like The Vampire Diaries, Twilight and Vampire Academy. Basically, sexy vamps and not, like, old-school Nosferatu stuff…
We’d never know what true love is (a la Stelena through TVD, Season 3.5).
Fictional high schools would not be as interesting. Come on, there’s nothing like St. Vladimir’s.
An entire portion of The Mortal Instruments would have to be rewritten. (Okay, so the vampires themselves aren’t sexy, but the Shadowhunters sure are.)
And who would be the clingy boyfriend every girl would wish for?
Plus Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel would never have happened, which would’ve SUCKED.
Johnny Depp in all of his pale glory would’ve remained to be seen (unless you count his creepy portrayal as The Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland, bleh).
A life without ever seeing Brad Pitt like this? Cannot imagine.
Finally — bringing it back to TVD again, of course — Damon. Salvatore.
