Dialogue

Introduction

Petru: (Speaking before a crowd) Comrades! A revolution is impossible without a revolutionary situation!
Petru: We have been driven from our homes, from our birth lands, by imperialists.
Petru: Imperialists with fangs!
Petru: We stand before a capitalistic vampiric army
Petru: bend on sucking the people dry for their own private profit.
Petru: We must organise! We must revolt!
Petru: (Turning to you) They are resistant to change...
Petru: but change is being thrust upon us whether we want it or not.
Petru: My own kind is the worst.
Petru: The Blajini do not realise that what serves society will server them also.
Petru: We've been isolated for too long.
Petru: I have read the works of Marx and Lenin.
Petru: I understand that without a revolutionary theory there cannot be a revolutionary movement.
Petru: Revolutions are the locomotives of history!
Petru: But locomotives also need passengers, and
Petru: (looking at the 'crowd' that was listening to him earlier) we are a bit thin in that department
Petru: I have put a message to my people on the magic tape
Petru: to let them know that they may come out of hiding and follow you,
Petru: that you will protect them and bring them to this shelter.
Petru: (Handing you a small cassette recorder) They will do so, because they are sheep.
Petru: I want to teach them to think for themselves, but until then it is good they are sheep.
Petru: Sometimes, history needs a tiny nudge in the right place.
Petru: (Turning back to the crowd) Abolish all private property!
Petru: Faeries of the world, unite!

Interesting. These are creatures of older soil, separated from the movement of the world for centuries. Reduced to a forgotten footnote of myth. An irrelevancy.

Now violent change is pressed upon them, and they respond in turn with change. From the death of tradition, the shoots of new thoughtforms. Do they adapt or die? Of this we are uncertain, but we welcome the glorious uncertainty.

You are witnessing the alchemy of chaos firsthand; blood is not all that has been shed in this valley. Let the vampires cast their bones, and we shall observe where they fall.

I don't mean to sound racist, but these guys remind me of this line of dolls from the 80s. It's on the tip of my tongue. Never mind, I'll get back to you if it comes to me.

Anyway, good thinking re: getting on the trail and winning hearts and minds out there. I wouldn't kiss any of their babies, you don't know where these things have been, but still.

If you want to really do them a favour, talk them out of that whole Marxist angle. Take it from me, I went to Cal-Berkeley, I know a thing or two about social classes.

Ciao-ciao

Of course our remit can be stretched from the protection of mankind alone. After all, it was under our amnesty, and our watch, that the Shades of Ealdwic were set up to take in the, well, "supernaturally dispossessed."

Times of conflict always lead to a new influx of the weird and wondrous to our city. Shelly will be thrilled no doubt, but on the positive side of business will boom across the hidden markets and lost rivers of London.

And perhaps, once said conflict has ended, they will have a home to return to. Let us hope so.
