Survival


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

We Old Vampires are good at surviving.  A typical Old Vampire will have survived at least two mobs and have resided in several countries.

An Old Vampire has to be good at languages.  New Vampires do not bother with learning languages; but they have not had to face mobs and move countries.

Survival is having somewhere to run to when, or preferably just before the mob comes knocking at your door.  Even today we Old Vampires have a back-up plan.

A lot more New Vampires are found dead than Old Vampires.  As far as we have been able to determine the population for both is roughly the same, but New Vampires do not have a back-up plan.

It has leaked through to me that New Vampires do not get along with one another as much as they like to say they do.

Old Vampires have rules and, more importantly, Standards to stick to.  There are people I would like to introduce to a stake, but that is simply not done without a good reason.

Rules and Standards keep our society together.  Without them to hold us back we would literally be at one another’s throats.

The Rules and Standards are unwritten, so Old Vampires can kill another Old Vampire.  Or New Vampire.

One example is Derek’s progeny killing him because he turned them into vampires when they did not want to be vampires.

We usually kill each other socially instead of using stakes.  We watch our enemies, waiting sometimes centuries for them to show some weakness or mistake that will send their reputation tumbling, or at best turn her or him into pariahs.

It’s another form of hunting, and we are so good at hunting.

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.

The Hunters see Vampire Hunters

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

Vampire Hunters New vampire who hunt down those vampires who have committed crimes
