Humans


*** DISCLAIMER – THIS BLOG IS FICTION AND THE AUTHOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTION OF ANYONE WHO PERSISTS IN THINKING IT IS NOT FICTION ***

Since I deal with Humans on a regular basis, I often get asked what they are like, mainly by Old Vampires who have either forgotten what they’re like or have heard that Humans are not what they used to be.

When I had Vampire Servants, they dealt with Humans.  Now Humans have changed so much over the centuries, between when I became an Old Vampire and when I started dealing with Humans again.

When I was a Human it didn’t matter what animals felt.  There was nothing to protect children or animals, and even black people were considered less than Human.

And Humans go on about how good the past was.  Death was cheap, and it was not only us who were keeping him busy.

There was famine, the black death, disease and war.  The death count was so high that Humans today still refer to “being over the hill” when they reach their 40th birthday.

Infant mortality was also high.  It was easy to get rid of vampire children then, in fact it was easy to dispose of anyone.

The problem was disguising marks of vampires.  It was helped when haemophilia was diagnosed, as lack of blood in the body would be put down to that.

It was not until the late Victorian era when people formed a society against cruelty to children, and that was after they had formed a society against cruelty to animals.

I will never understand the British preoccupation with the welfare of animals, which seems to be above any other form of life.

I would have thought that anyone who had children would be more concerned with the welfare of children than animals.

At times I think I will never understand the modern human.

Glossary

Debutante Vampires before Dracula came out, vampires who had been newly turned vampire were taught the rules of society.  They then “came out” when they were deemed presentable to vampire society as debutantes.

New Vampires vampires who do not want to be Old Vampires, often live as Goths and hold down jobs.  This started after Dracula came out.

Old Vampires vampires who are polite society.  Either turned vampire before Dracula came out or were turned after by an Old Vampire and decided to join the Old Vampires.

Parent the vampire who brought you up (if you are an Old Vampire) in polite society

Sire the vampire who made you a vampire
