I can vouch for vampires and sunlight! Vampires are pale, REALLY PALE. And I'm really pale, and I know that when I go out in the sunlight that it burns me up D:

And if vampires are paler than I am then they certainly can't go out unless they wear a lot of covering clothing and maybe bring a big hat or umbrella.

There's alot of things that have changed since the original vampires, some authors will take on the challenge and change up one or two things, but there's always a rhyme or reason worked into the story.

Like I keep saying, Anne Rice had Lestat hide in a church and scare the crap out of everyone, his mother even decided to try sleeping in the dirt instead of a coffin. And of course, Louis talks about how he thinks crosses are interesting. Actually I think there was also a point when Lestat was looking in a mirror, despite the fact that you're not supposed to be able to see their reflections.

BUT, that was because (in the story), many of those more trivial things turned out to be old superstitions, even to the vampires themselves. Sunlight could still kill them, hence

but alot of other stuff didn't. And of course, they still drank blood and were still dead. Though it was added that drinking blood from a corpse could kill them.

I could imagine, with the right plot device it might be possible to say that burning up in sunlight was also an old superstition in whatever story you're writing (as long as you don't remove ALL their vampiric traits for no reason) or you could say that humans cant see vampire reflections because they're only visible to the vampires. I think it's debatable whether they can ingest human food or not, though the Vampire Chronicles really seem to suggest otherwise. Doesn't change the guidelines of what vampires are supposed to be, just a different spin to provoke thought, which is allowed if you do it right, and provide a reasonable explanation as to why. Twilight never once addressed why vampires sparkled, so it wasn't done right.

Obviously they sparkled because it's pretty and cool looking. :o
Which totally makes sense. >.>
But imagine if the teenage vampires couldn't go to school! BLASPHEMY!

Clearly that is a vampire friendly sun-filtering window.... Or... Something...

Yay for plot holes and director's poor attentions to detail! :D
