The Committee


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

The Committee mainly deals with exposures or potential exposures of non-human races, including marches and protests.

We Old Vampires have too much money to do the latter. Why stir ourselves to protest with rabble when we can affect the status quo with money and influence?

It is mainly Werewolves who are actively protesting, leading marches and trying to better their race.

New Vampires will sign petitions, usually in gothic script, but generally cannot afford the sunscreen we use.

Opinion of Old Vampires is divided between : “what a shame, we could have had fun with them” to pride that those who call themselves New Vampires are unable to be as we are.

Unfortunately these protests are usually well within the Human law. There are those of us who have toyed with placing agent provocateurs at protests, but the Human police are quite capable of finding out that we are the ones behind this and they are capable of making our lives uncomfortable.

My opinion is always asked about this before plans are put into operation and my answer is always the same : that it would certainly result in a loss of Status and our Ruler would not be pleased.

So we watch from the sidelines with amusement and take bets on the outcome, amount of placards and how many times the ambulance will be called out, as even in a calm protest someone will collapse from the heat or sprain their ankle.

There is always the chance that a werewolf will lose control, although they are not fool enough to schedule nor attend such near a full moon.

I admit this has only happened twice, but it is difficult for werewolves afterwards to pretend they would fit in well with the human population.
