Different blood flows in their veins--but our blood quenches their thirst. From Bram Stoker's 1897 creation of Count Dracula, portrayed as a foreign invader bent on the conquest of England, the literary vampire has symbolized the Other, whether his or her otherness arises from racial, ethnic, sexual, or species difference. Even before the bloodsucking Martians of H. G. Wells' War of the Worlds, however, popular fiction contained a few vampires who were members of alien species rather than...
There are secrets on the mountain. Things adults know but don't tell their children. The young hear bits and pieces of conversations and become intrigued. They want to explore. Discover. Without knowing all the details, they can't make good decisions. Their curiosity takes them on journey's they later wish they never went on. It shows them things they wish they never saw.
Sometimes strange things happen on the mountain, like pets disappearing. Or toys. Or even people. No one knows where they go, just that they are gone. Or, at least, that is what the grownups tell the children. What if the grownups know more than what they are letting on? What if they know where all the missing things and people are, but just wont say? What if they don't? After all, it isn't just children the denizens of the dark take. It can be anyone. Even adults who no longer believe.
On the mountain, children are not any more safe than adults. Sometimes, a fabled monster turns out to be real. Other times, something completely unexpected will happen. And when your parents do not believe in something, you can't change what might happen. Children learn young to be strong but they are still afraid, wondering if they'll be the next to disappear. The next child the mountain folks search for during the day, and cry for at night.
