Apotamkin or rather, The Cold One

I’m sure we all clearly remember the scene in Twilight when Bella is beginning to get suspicious that there’s something “special” about Edward and goes home to furiously type things into Google. The camera views of what she pulls up are succinct, yet clear enough to give us the understanding that Bella has come across some Quielette legends stating something about “The Cold One” and how this cold one is a vampire. But,what is The Cold One? Is there actually a vampire known as this?

Well, the closest thing to any vampire legend that would bear any similarity to the legend of The Cold One would be the Apotamkin. This creature is unlike most other vampire folklore because it’s exclusive to the Native American people. The Apotamkin was a bona fide vampire however, with all the abilities and super strengths of other vampires that we know. It was believed among Native Americans that the Apotamkin would feast on the blood of any animal or human. And it got its name just the way you would expect – Apotamkins were very cold to the touch, mostly because they were dead bodies.

However, it’s been said that the Native American never really believed in the Apotamkin and that it was a cautionary tale told to children. This was used especially when warning children about wandering off by themselves with no supervision.

And, as for Twilight, Stephenie Meyer has said that in regards to her version and her version alone, she had no similarities in mind when writing the book. She simply needed to create random bits of Edward’s character and piece them together, cryptically, with mythical vampire folklore. Clever, though, how perhaps even without knowing it, Meyer has combined her own imagination of the Quileutte legend, with actual Native American vampire folklore!

Vampires DO NOT exist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But there are sick people and this disease makes them ugly and vulnerable. There is no excess capacity, only disorders.

what the *** !!! U just waste ur time debating about so childish bullshit …I have nothing againts Twilight’s fans ‘coz i like the saga too….It’s just that believing in the existence of vampires is a boundless imagination…too overflowing imagination

i think vampires are true… i do belive it because of my thoughts, how can stephanie meyer, do books without any ideas about the main characters on the story….

(witch by the way nobody has cos they dotn exist!!)

im a vampire actually ALL YOU WEIRDOS pretending you a vampire im the real did i kiss my vamp boy friends all the time so shut up before i hunt you down and drain every drop of blood from your body ,”,

You know its a little offending all of you pretending to be what is so far ahead of you you cant even imagine touching it. If it was given to you and after a day you would give it back. Its not something you can just say i am a vampire and everything’s dandy. First off how surperuous you all are a vampire would only tell anyone he or she is a vampire for two reasons. One being he or she knew you wouldnt believe and they could go about their business and pretend it was just a joke. Second, if they were going to kill you in the end anyway. What you are all doing is obserd and i take this offensivly. I wish i could meet you all and i would show you what a real vampire is. We dont like being mocked we dont like being talked about as if our lives are grand we are no better nor worst than you only difference is our lives are extended. Oh and we are a little more humane then you humans if you could believe that. But be warned not all of us are so sweet. Some of us actually like to have fun tracking down “believers”.

actually u may be right we dnt have the right to mock on any kind of species. but dere is nothing lyk vampires and werewolves. these are all old myths. there is no scientific clarification of there existence and the movies we see lyk twilight and others these are made only for our entertainment, to fanticize us and nothing else. i actualy dnt want to see any vampire in my lyf coz i knw if dey really do exist dey r not going to be sweeter. watever u al guys knw its jst bcoz from d movies which we al see cum on so stop claiming dat i m a vampire. vampires wil nt use internet to clarify dere identity. everybody knws dat. pls stop talkin nonsense dey dnt exist. it was jst a gud movie and evn i liked it too bcoz of edward

I LOVE EDWARD AND FUCK BELLA SHE SUCKS AT ACTING SORRY BUT THE TRUTH HURTS LIKE BIG TIME JA.!!!!!!

Hey… Its me again Rob I’ve some question.. Do you all believe that vampires exist and wolves?? But they don’t but you can always believe that they are exist .

Have a nice day … Rob

JAA, da hast du recht:
Ich finde den film genial:D:D:D Ich bin auch ein harry potter fan, und dass war was völlig neues und(also twilight war was neues) und ich finde es spitze:D:D:D

omfg i totally agree. its okay to love the way superstars look but dang! You all went coo-coo!!! I think you all should except the fact that the twilight saga is a damn fairy tale and u all should stop OBSESSING over robert Pattison and Taylor Laugnter. if you still believe this crazy shit then go read some cinderella stories…

actually……….. the character edward cullen is a vampire played by robert pettinson. so robert is not a vampire. pls over obsessed ppl. open your eyes

its a shame that all of you call names to those who love to make movies.your just all jelious,cause their rich and your poor.robert pattinson is my cousin actually 3rd cousin,and he isnt gay either.i met kirsten stewart/and taylor when filming newmoon.it was so awsome to see what really goes on behind the scenes of twlight/newmoon.so call it as you want….
sincerly, kate

hi everyone, can I ask you something? everyone believe twilight it’s not a real story its just a movie like any movie . no one in the world vampire. was a story from a lot of years it’s a real story name is dracula in Romania was a prince anyone make in his Country something wrong was kill him and drink his blood and the prince

if you realy vampire tell me one thing to make me believe. came to get me or kill me !!!!!! I’m waiting you . realy you marry bella!!!!!!!!!! okay Congratulations

You are all a bunch of idiots. Do you realise that if a real vampire should exist, you make the ideal fishing pond? ARE YOU REALLY THIS STUPID? Go on, give em your names, give em your adresses while youre at it!! Really, reading this and other sites where idiots like you sign up and advertise your two brain cells makes me ache inside. THINK why would a real vampire have sympathy for O please turn me because my life is so shitty? because I want to be powerful? because I want to be strong? I advise all of you to look up the movie NEAR DARK on youtube, it is another vampire human love story. Type in Near dark bar scene. Have fun!
Try growing a brain first before you mess with a thing that could kill you.
Seriously, people, even faggy Twilight had a vamp in it that liked to hunt people down for sport. What was his name again? Oh.. duh… JAMES?
And if you dont believe in vamps (who does, huh?), try imagine a human taking advantage of you, pretending to be a vamp.

Do you want to know another vampire lovestory? Go look at the movie Near Dark on Youtube, it was made in the 80ies, when I was your age, and it is really good. Has a guy in it that I think is better looking than Edward and Jacob combined, too! O yeah, he’s a vampire! The movie starts a bit slow, but if you’re in a hurry and just want the gist of the thing, the best scene is in part 5, where they all go into a bar for a drink, and Mae tells Caleb she loves him. It’s really beautiful, really magical, and it shows you something about love, and life. Also, if you’re really into vampires, maybe you want to go read Anne Rice? Start with Interview with the vampire. They’re on Youtube too, in audiobook. Just tips.

Hope you’ll all be well! Love!

explain me and tell me who are you? the story is right ds vampires on the internet has more lies than truth, but if they do and I isit? Who am I? I shall go who never think your … ixixtencia many years and never seen so many lies about vampires! why so much history as fanatics? if you like vampires that much ask to be turned! Warned now!
