Romance, a method of courtship defined by mystery and subtlety, died February 28. It was 8,427 years old.

Vampires, 112, DieThe trend of vampire-related entertainment died March 14, in New York. The cause was Rob Schecter, a HarperCollins editor who assigned a young-adult novel about teenage vampires with anorexia. Born in 1819 with the publication of The Vampyre, by John Polidori, the trend centered on mythical creatures who sucked blood, avoided sunlight, and, most recently, looked like Marcel Marceau but with more hair gel. Vampires survived dozens of novels, an HBO series, and a Keanu Reeves movie. But the proposed YA novel proved fatal. "It's like Twilight but much edgier," said Schecter of the book idea. "We want to deal with real issues here. These vampire girls hate drinking blood because they think it's too fattening." Vampires are survived by zombies, werewolves, and investment bankers.

Though I never actually watched any movies featuring Ms. Fox, my crush flourished thanks to magazine photos and Google Image Search. My crush's health began to decline when it was revealed that Ms. Fox has a prose poem tattooed on her rib cage. It then deteriorated precipitously upon my learning she had the name of then-boyfriend Brian Austin Green, of Beverly Hills, 90210, tattooed on her pelvis.
