With War of Nytefall: Eulogy out, I know this topic has to be touched on. After all, it’s make or break time for Clyde’s dream. I’ve discussed it at length several times, so where else can I go with it?
Public opinion! (Sort of)
One thing I’ve wondered is if real people would see this as feasible. Would you be okay with vampires living openly in your neighborhood? This is with the knowledge that they drink blood, have incredible power, and their ancestors were the traditional monsters. I know we’d like to think we’d be open to the idea, but would we really? I know I’d be nervous at first. Though, I’m a tough one to bring into the conversation since this is my creation. So, I’d like to know how other people would handle the revelation that vampires exist and may be living peacefully next door.
For a refresher: Clyde’s dream is that the Dawn Fangs live openly and in peace with the mortals. Since Dawn Fangs can eat real food and control their bloodlust, they are less likely to go berserk. Keep in mind that I said less likely instead of will never. You’re going to have some bad apples and vampires can be triggered just like mortals. Still, he hopes that mortals will accept his people as part of their society and world instead of seeing them as terrifying monsters. To do so, he’s already had hundreds, if not thousands, of Dawn Fangs live among mortals in secret. Of course, it’s going to be a shock when you learn who has had fangs all this time, which can be a problem. Yet, it proves they can live in harmony, right?
So, what do you think? How would you react to Clyde’s dream becoming a reality?
