Understanding Athelind's Argot: "Terminal Sparkles"  
A Bad Case of the Sparkles describes those classic Hollywood vampires who ignite when exposed to sunlight.

This can range from a slow, Joss-Whedon-style smolder to an instantaneous Hammer-style Roman Candle.

This versus a new and more disturbing trend of a type of hollywood vampire that glitters in the sunlight, not having the common decency to burst into flame when exposed to its mortal enemy, the sun (and by extension, God). Yes yes, the sun is not god, but it's damn good at smiting.

That's "a mild case of the sparklies", of course. The implication was supposed to be that ALL vampires sparkle in the sunlight; some just sparkle HARDER.

What burns sixty-four times more brightly... huh. I think there might be an exponential curve on that one!
