Humanising


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

This is the problem with humans today : the desire to humanise everything and make it safe.

It is not a safe world out there.  With vampires, werewolves and other predators sharing a world with humans, they will disappear.

Sometimes humans run away of their own volition and do not want their families to find them.

Often it is other humans who are to blame for their disappearance.  I did not believe this could happen until I worked in a prison.  Now I know it is all too true.

I do not understand this.  Humans clearly regard other humans (and those of us who pass for humans) as people.  Why would people have such disregard for other people as to harm them?

This desire of humans to humanise everything and make it a safe world, despite their belief that it is humans who are behind all disappearances does not make sense to me.

As humans grow up, they need to understand what is expected of them as humans and what the penalties are for doing the wrong thing and for breaking the rules.

It would be better to have structure in their world; to control or neuter the ones who make humans disappear before it happens.

Humans impose more and more rules, while forgetting ones they already have.  Then they don’t even stick to the ones they have made.  It seems such a muddle to me, who is used to clear rules which stay the same for centuries.

This must be to do with the fact that humans have such a short life span, numbering in decades what we vampires number in centuries.  We can see the effects of rules and policies as we are in this game for a long time.

With us it is humans and now The Hunters who make Old Vampires disappear, not other Old Vampires.
