Talk Nerdy To Me talks Star Wars (with less f- bombs this time)  


Okay- question of the day.

I saw a question like this on a blog somewhere recently, wish I remembered where (if you remember please let me know, I'd like to give credit) but it was fun and I wanted to do a version of the werewolf vs vampire debate.

You are caught between a werewolf pack or a group of vampires. And these are not sparkly vamps but vicious. cold- blooded undead. But they do live a long time and they often have important roles in society due to their longevity and knowledge. The werewolf pack however offers a relatively normal life (when you're not howling at the moon) plus a support network, and while not as long- lived as vamps they heal quickly. Which group do you choose?

  1. I haven't had a chance to watch more episode of Travelers, but I need to before I forget again what's going on. You're still liking Riverdale? I haven't quite felt like jumping into the 2nd season.

    1. And to your question ... I'd go vampire, but only if I could go in the sun. I would be murderous if I never had the sun again.

    2. Riverdale's pretty awesome. In a trashy way, you know. :) And Travelers rocks.

  2. Spaceborn Few is hands down the most unusual title I've seen in a long time! Will have to check it out -- I'd go werewolf, I think. Vamps just haven't been doing it for me in a long time lol

  3. Ooo... I hadn't realised that Spaceborn Few was coming out! And I, too, love the idea of Jurassic Park meets Hunger Games. As to your question - it would have to be werewolf - not being able to look at my reflection in the mornings (even if I'm on the whiskery side) would be the last straw AND I like the idea of being around with my loyal pack...

    1. It's getting closer! And yes I would go werewolf too- a pack would be nice!

  4. I think I would choose werewolf in this situation! Who knows when those vicious vampires would turn on me? Also, I would like a support network after becoming a paranormal creature! :D

    1. Yeah, and the drinking blood thing... nah! And a support network is good!

  5. I'd choose the werewolf pack, obvious choice for me, I'm a dog person! I saw the cover for Record of a Spaceborn Few, it's beautiful!

  7. Thanks for sharing, Greg. I hope you enjoy Record of A Spaceborn Few. Need to check out the video and the movies. I’m not a movie fan, so I’m kinda behind with the latest popular series. Hehe..

    Enjoy your books this week and have a wonderful week. ❤️😁

    1. I don't see many movies anymore either!

      You have a great week too!

  8. Gah, I haven't started Riverdale even if everyone in school's been pushing me to. How are you liking it? :) And ooooh, definitely the wolves! I do NOT want want to be vicious (in the blood-sucking way), plus a support network is much needed, at least for me. Have an awesome week, Greg!

    1. I love Riverdale! I mean it's campy and silly but that's half the fun. And yes werewolves!!

  9. In my early PNR days, I would have said vampires but the more I read - immortality just sounds sad and lonely so werewolves.

    It has cool perks but is relatively normal. I just have to hope the shift doesn't hurt too much.

    1. You know vampires might not be bad if you were still human and just, you know, needed a little blood now and again. But the whole undead thing... nah. And I've never understood the shifting is painful thing- it seems like it might just be a transformation without pain, but maybe not...

  10. The Extinction Trials looks interesting. I hope you're loving it.

    I'd have to go with werewolves, of course :) I'd don't think I'd mind living with a bunch of furry beasts. Vamps lose too many people along the way. It'd get depressing after a few decades.

  11. Hmmm...I've never heard of this book, but it sounds interesting! Great pick!

  12. The Hunger Games meets Jurassic Park? Way to pique my interest!
    As for your question, I've always enjoyed vampires stories, but when you put it like that . . . I'm gonna opt to join the werewolves pack, after all I'm extremely loyal and they would see that like a very good quality ;)

    1. I know right? And I'm with you on the werewolves- I'd like being part of a pack maybe, and vamps are too cold and inhuman lol.

  13. I've been getting into Riverdale lately and I'm totally loving it, it's such a fun show to kick back and relax with. Travellers looks really interesting, as does The Extinction Trials! To answer your question, I think I would go with the werewolves. It sounds much more up my alley.

    1. I agree, Riverdale is awesome. And Travelers is fun!

      I think I'm with the 'wolves too...

  18. You are NOT watching Travelers! Or Riverdale actually. You sit on a throne of lies :D DAMN are you really reading Extinction Trials?! How is it? Because if it is good I am probably going to cave in and buy it, so I need details!

    And vampire, no question. I'd get to live forever, and like, don't their lives always seem kind of soap opera-y? Like they are always up to something. And my new high society status is a plus. Werewolves are probably covered in animal fur half the time, and now one is going to take some dog seriously. PLUS- I have a lot of questions about shifter hygiene in general. Vampire, all the way :D

    1. Now listen. :) I am SORTA watching them, I mean Riverdale is ongoing right?? And Travelers- well I may have been too lazy to remove it, but you know I just finished S2. :) And Extinction Trials had me at the map- it's like got dinosaurs listed on it, you know? I had to. Plus it reminds me of The 100 a bit- just add dinosaurs? But I've only started it...

      Vampire?? Ha ha I was worried werewolves were gonna run away with it. But... I see your point. Vamps have advantages. But they'd be so cold and pale... I gotta go with werewolves. They can howl and stuff. :)

  19. Oh my, words cannot describe how excited I am for the third Becky Chambers Wayfarers book!

    1. It is my top anticipated book of the year!

  20. Ugh, I've been seeing those Becky Chambers books around a lot which probably means they are GOOD! I am so vary of adult sci-fic though because it tends to be more literary and I enjoy more commercial reads on a regular basis.

    Also, I was gonna comment on how Shannon is also watching Travelers but saw her comment about your throne of lies.

    1. Oh my gosh Long Way To A Small Angry Planet is AWESOME! And I didn't think it was overly literary, they're pretty readable

      Ha Travelers is awesome and I think Shannon is liking it ??!?

  21. I'd go vampire as I'm a solitary kind of person who wants to live forever so I can read all the books! I don't like the idea of drinking blood though but I suppose if I WAS a vampire I'd like it! Turning wolf every full moon sounds painful and I don't fancy fighting for pack position!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I know how much you love the Becky Chambers books so I hope this one lives up to your expectations. I LOVE Pat Benatar, especially her 80's stuff. It would be a tough decision between werewolf and vampire but I think I'd have to go with werewolf. I love my dogs and that's the closest I could come to being with them :)

    1. I do, I can't wait for that third book! And I was lucky enough to see PAt Benatar live. she was pretty good. :)

      I'm team werewolf too :)

  23. Ooooo, how are you liking Travelers? I've had my eye on it for a while now. And to answer your question I would pick neither. Elven warriors are where it's at. ;)

    1. I love Travelers! And great pick- elven warriors are awesome. It's funny, I actually thought about adding another category, for fey, since they often show up in UF too.

  24. Hmmm, I'm leaning towards the werewolves. A relatively normal life with dog-like companions doesn't sound too bad, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Is Travelers any good? I keep seeing it pop up, but I'm always hesitant to start new things (in case I get hooked haha).

    Hm. Part of me thinks being a Werewolf in that situation would be better, but I'm honestly preferable to the Vampire way of life. I mean. The darkness of night (good), no sun (good for my skin), forever young (good?), time to read all the things (also good) :P

    1. Travelers is awesome. I like S2 a smidgen better than the first, but they're both good!

      Forever young is pretty tempting. :) And reading all the books/ immortality...I would miss the sun though? I think I'm werewolf but they both have advantages!

  26. The Extinction Trials sounds like a great read! I hope you are enjoying it. Have a great week!

  27. Longmire = one of my FAVORITE shows. Always so good.

  28. I just noticed the second season of The Travelers is out. I will have to find time to watch it. I enjoyed the first season. I haven't yet read Chamber's first book! I had better get on it.

    I am not sure . . .Vampire or Werewolf. I tend to lean toward werewolf. I do love animals and I like the idea of living in a close community . . . I think immortality sounds nice from a distance, but actually faced with it, but might too much.
