This is the part two to my previous article: The Definitive Vampire Media Ranking List Part One. In that article I introduce all the tiers and everything, make sure to read it before reading this article. There may be some pieces of media where that I have missed, and it is simply because I haven’t watched/read it, and I would like to be entirely educated on my rankings.
A new show has come to rescue the fans of western animation. After the end of Amphibia and with The Owl House in hiatus, Dead End: Paranormal Park arrives to the silver-screen to take away our hearts, maybe literally.
Created by Hamish Steele. It is an adaptation from a graphic novel that was an adaptation from a Tapas comic which was an adaptation from a YouTube short that he had worked on.

With a writers room of all walks of life and experience they created a story about teenagers working at a haunted Disney Land.
One thing about me is that I have always loved vampires. Since I found a copy of Twilight in my Nana’s basement at the ripe old age of eleven, I have been absolutely obsessed.
In honor of this, I have decided to combine my two favorite things: Vampires and lists. So, I will be ranking different vampire media according to a very specific tier list of my own creation.
Before I get into explaining the tiers, I would just like give a quick disclaimer: I am objectively correct and right all the time.
TW: Teratophila and some sexual mentions.
Paranormal romance has been around since 1764, when the Gothic novels started to appear, with Bram Storker’s internal homophobia and outward xenophobia cementing the vampire as a terrifying yet seducing figure. However the true element of romance didn’t appear until Ann Radcliff started writing gothics, specially The Mysteries of Udolpho.
In the present this genre is rather infamous in the already ostracized romance genre (read: When people sh*t on YA romance) despite how common “paranormal romances” tend to appear in popular texts.
