sociosleuth asked: vampire!
Vampire: Someone offers you a chance at immortality. Do you take it, and why or why not?

Short answer: yes. see long answer for proper explanation
Long answer: I’m so glad you asked this bc a while ago tumblr user ben-c (sorry I can’t link I’m on mobile) got asked a similar question (basically just would you want to be immortal) and she wrote the most perfect answer for it, which I’ll quote here:
“this is my fav question bc people are always like “no I wouldn’t want to live forever because I’d have to watch everyone I love die!” like fuck that, you’re so small minded.
you could live through the evolution of mankind, you can watch them change and grow and learn and you can learn along with them. you can know everything that man will ever know, you can observe their downfall and the end of the earth as it’s consumed by the dying sun. you can explore the galaxy and watch as stars die and become new life. you are the observer of the end of all things. you can watch pulsars slow and slow and stop, you can watch black holes devour entire galaxies. you can discover alien races and live with them and learn what they know and watch them evolve just as man did. you can know everything. why do people insist on basing their happiness on other peoples’ existence as if one person dying could possibly outweigh the gorgeous beauty of the literal entire universe and everything in it oh god how I wish I could have the opportunity for such profound knowledge”

So yeah basically I totally agree with what she said and I love how it’s said and so yes. I would take the offer of immortality in a heartbeat
