    Re: vampire's teeth

    Both are acceptable, although I'm having a tough time imagining a context in which either would be appropriate.

    Re: vampire's teeth

    Maybe a discussion among actors on True Blood?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    In that context it might even be 'Who has my vampire's teeth?'

    Re: vampire's teeth

    Say they wanted to know whose character was going to get turned.

    I did watch an interview with them once. They said they felt the writers put as many instances of "Sookie Stackhouse" as possible the first time they had to wear fangs as some sort of initiation hazing. Apparently S sounds are hard when wearing a vamoire's teeth. (And yes, I'd write "vampire teeth" myself normally.)

    Vampire teeth sounds natural to me too.
