This Blog follows the story of Vinyl "Viola Bratsche" Scratch, In this alternate universe where she is a vampire who hunts down rogue vampires and enjoys her everyday life being undead. The story is told through weekly or Monthly page(s) of Manga which center around Vinyl as she either answers questions or sets out during story arcs.
Vinyl Scratch/ Viola Bratsche/ DJ-PON3Edit
The reader is introduced to vinyl in the first ask during one of her parties going on at her club, she demonstrates how she kills her "prey" by using herself as a sexy bait. from there on the reader begins to learn more and more about Vinyl. The reader soon learns her intentions, to kill a Rogue Vampire named Lestat who killed her friends and turned Vinyl (formerly Viola) into a vampire. Vinyl's personality is one who thinks on action not words, as she has shown especially in combat where she would get the first move and attack. as of Blood Bakery Chp4 P29, it is also revealed that a fragment of Vinyl's souls, the human part of her corrupted soul is able to calm vinyl down as she began to lose herself.
Octavia Melody is Vinyl's roomate and the one who provides Vinyl shelter, she is introduced between #11 and 12 in the ask posts. she has a slightly calm and well mannered personality, but can quickly lose her temper (an example was when vinyl dropped a weapons crate through the roof during the "Gradus Vita" story arc). She is also laid back and mostly stays at home playing the cello or enjoying her daily life, other days she would not be home since she is at practice. It has been hinted at that there could be more behind Octavia than what is presented. only time will tell.
Lestat "The Masked Vampire"Edit
Briefly mentioned in some of the early posts, all that is known about her is that she killed Viola, her friends, and many others for no known reason; along with the fact that she is the reason why Viola is still living, but as a vampire and looks forward to killing her..
"Gradus Vita" Story arc #1Edit
In this storyarc. Vinyl has recieved news of a series of muders from within the everfree forest. She sets out to help an Equestrian commander named Toros, to find out who is responsible behind these murders. Once they entered the everfree forest, they were engaged by hundreds of Ghouls, created from a vampire biting a body and sucking out all of its blood. In response, the commander called upon reinforcments which were quickly taken down along with the commander by a Rogue, unnamed vampire. After a short duel between the two vampires, Vinyl won after cathing the rogue vampire off guard and piercing the vampire's heart with Vinyl's broken katana, where Vinyl proceeds to suck on the Vampire's blood.
"Blood Bakery" Story arc #2Edit
Taking place months after the "Gradus Vita" storyarc, another series of kidnappings and dissapearances has begun. but there is no signs of any vampires this time around. The Royal guards have arrested Mrs.Cake for the murders since the majority of the dead victims were found in sugarcube corner not too long after. Now Pinkie pie is n charge of sugarcube corner, and she wants rainbow dash to help her out in making her newest cupcake. the story progresses with Vinyl searching for Rainbow dash and finding her in the basement of the sugarcube corner, dubbed "The Blood Bakery" by a vampire she ran into on her search. Vinyl and Pinkie then fight as Vinyl tires to rescue Dash. what ensues is a bloody fight between a Vampire and an Element of Harmony.
"Morte Mea" Story arc #3Edit"Morte Mea" (latin for: My death) is the third story arc/ second volume in the Vinyl the Vampire storyline. the short story arc acts as a prologue to the entire blog, showing the readers what happened during the last few hours of Viola Bratsche's life. how she became a vampire, what Lestat has done, and other important information is revealed in this short story.
- The original story was going to involve Vinyl having a Vampire Throll named Serena. even though she isn't in the overall story she has made two appearances in the earlier posts when she was supposed to be in the storyline. she is seen dancing in #1 of ask vinyl the vampire, and mopes at the loss of her boyfriend (to vinyl) in #6.
- The blog was not inspired by the popular fanfic "My roomate is a Vampire". Rather it was inspired by epic pie time and Hellsing ultimate. the fact that Vinyl the Vampire and My roomate is a vampire both deal with vinyl being a vampire is pure coincidence.
- the land of Equestria is a mixture of different time periods. the homes are structured after those from the renaissance time period, the weapons are inspired by the modern age weapons, the royal guards armor and the swords are that from the midieval era, lastly the Demeter and princess celestia's uniform are from the 40's, during the time period in which world war II took place.
- the style of the manga is heavily inspired from the "Hellsing" manga by Kohta Hirano and the style of Nintendo's "Madworld" video game.
