Mobs


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

Humans have the luxury of ignoring gossip.  At the time of the mobs, vampires could not afford to stand out.

Of course, if you have money there is always gossip about you and it is one of our Vampire Servants’ main functions to report what is being said about you.

Sometimes the gossip is hilariously inaccurate.  One time it was said that I had an abortion at a private clinic in Switzerland.

At the time I hadn’t been to Switzerland for several years and of course vampires of any kind cannot get pregnant.

In 1728 the gossip about me was that I was a witch and practised all kinds of lewd practises.

I laughed it off, even when the servants became worried.  I thought I was secure and that nothing could be done to me.

I found out I was wrong when the Witchfinders came.  They tortured me until I confessed and thankfully they hanged me instead of burning me.

If I had been burnt I would have been dead, but when I was hung I faked death, was cut down and buried.

Burial is so not a problem for vampires.  My Vampire Servants had been waiting for this and had a change of clothes and the necessary items you need when you flee a country.

So I fled, this time to Russia for sixty years until my husband staged his own death and the villagers who had remembered me had died.

The worst thing was that this time I couldn’t take any of my servants with me, except my maidservant who would have been out of a job if she had stayed, so she joined me in Russia after a decent length of time had passed.

We always have someone we can go to just in case something happens.  A mob can be whipped up at any time and sometimes gossip is just one step behind the mob.

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 turned you into a vampire
