Does my being Goth make me any more vulnerable to vampire attack?
Does my being interested in and passionate about vampires make me any more at risk of attack?
Attack from who/what? Vampires? No, there aren't any vampires.
Well, let's do a little thought problem. Putting aside for a moment the question of whether or not vampires actually exist, we'd have to agree that if they do exist they are terribly rare. You never read news accounts that anyone has encountered a vampire or caught one, so they must be extremely rare. On the other hand I've actually met people that pretend to be vampires and I've heard about people that THINK they are vampires but, of course, actually aren't. So people that think or pretend to be vampires must be much more common than actual vampires.

Now about who these people would actually prey upon. An actual vampire is reported to be very powerful, can polymorph into other animals, can fly, has superhuman strength, can't be killed, mesmerizes victims, and might be considered to have other powers. Such a being would have their pick of any victim they like and almost nothing could stop them. A pretend vampire or delusional vampire probably WOULD be attracted to a particular type of person, since they themselves are probably attracted to darker, more morbid people. So we might consider that a real vampire would have an almost unlimited choice, while a pretend or delusional vampire would be attracted to someone who was Goth.

As to threat, we've already come to the conclusion that if vampires did exist they would be extremely rare but pretend or delusional vampires aren't too terribly rare. There are people that are afraid of being struck by lightning but it's much more likely that they would be injured in a car accident. For that reason it would be wise to drive a car with airbags and keep your seatbelt fastened. If an attack by a real vampire is terribly rare, but an attack by a pretend or delusional vampire is possible, it would be wiser to avoid other people that are into vampire fantasy than to worry about being attacked by an actual vampire.

Subject: I have a black cat.
Believer: Black cats are bad luck.
Non-believer: It's just a cat.
Crackpot: Black cats are part of the New World Order government conspiracy.
Skeptic: I can test if black cats are more or less lucky than another cat.
Cynic: You only have a black cat to gain power and prestige.
