True Blood: How are vampires made?

I've tried google but gave up --

How are vampires made in the "True Bood" world? Apparently, drinking vampire blood alone won't do it. Yet, in almost every other vampire universe drinking blood is what turns a human into vampire.

According to the Anne Rice novels, the vampire had to drain someone to the point of death, then allow them to drink blood back from the vampire. That is all.

Thanks r1 -- but how's it done in the "True Blood" world?

True Blood TV seems to follow that and add a three day stint in the ground (with your maker?).

What r1 says is also consistent with the True Blood series.

I heard you have to suck Alan Ball's dick the first time, and if he likes you he'll ask you to plow his ass. Do a good job there, and voila, you're a vamp on HBO!

It was the same in the Buffy universe. You had to have been drained to the point of near death then revived with the blood of a vampire.

The difference is in the terminology. True Blood refers to it as "making". Buffy refers to it as "siring" and Anne Rice as "turning".

I think Ann Rice now refers to it as "Making a nice ham sandwich with some cole slaw on the side."

Fraid not, now it's "violating Jeebus's plan".
