To be or not to be… immortal.

So… I’m taking a little break from science fiction for my current project and working on a story that I’ve described somewhere as a story with vampires but not a story about vampires. At the core of the story is a relationship between a mother and her daughter. They’re not actually biologically related; the mother is a three hundred year immortal vampire hunter from England and her daughter is a Spanish girl she adopted after discovering that her parents had been killed by vampires.

The two of them move around a lot but the mother manages to hide the secret of her immortality (along with the existence of vampires) for the better part of twenty years. However, while it won’t come as a big surprise to anyone familiar with this type of story, the secret comes out and leads to a lot of the central drama in the story. And the age old story trope about the ‘curse’ of immortality is at the heart of it. Naturally!

And since it’s, as mentioned above, such an old trope, I’m sure most of you have come across it in a number of stories and if, you’re anything like me, maybe you’ve pondered the question of what it would be like to live forever. Whether it would be a blessing or a curse.

So I thought it could be fun to find out what people think. Now, just for the sake of keeping the question simple, we’ll just consider a scenario where you’re immortal but everyone else is not. So cast your vote and share your reasons in the comments below!
