Vampire: Someone offers you a chance at immortality. Do you take it, and why or why not?

Everyone always says no.

"You have to watch everyone you love die around you"
"You'll get bored"
"Won't it get lonely?"

NAH. I'd flat out 100% say yes to immortality. Are you kidding me? The chance to live forever. To get to see the human race discover what dwells at the depths of the ocean and the extraterrestrial life that thrive amongst the stars. To get to see your descendants or descendants of people you knew, become something. To watch innovation after innovation. To be not scared of never having enough time to read and watch and feel.

Of course there is sadness in loss. Of everything seeming so temporary while being so permanent. Yet at the same time that's the beauty of it. If everything was permanent it would get old and boring. Being permanent in this case does not necessarily without change. Adapting with the times, watching the new fashion trends recycle or become something new. What new franchise or celebrity will be the next big thing? Watching equality finally being achieved globally after generation, after generation of filtering the hate out from what used to be traditional values and now just accepting things as they are and as they could be rather than what an individual thinks should be. Seeing new technology revolutionising the way the world works.

Meeting and living all walks of life. 

Yes. Always.
