The child allowed himself to be a child again, for a single breath. He shed a single tear, a tear for the loss of the child he might have been, and also for the loss of other children. You are his tear. You flow toward the answer. It is inevitable. It is the nature of your gravity. Be that inevitability. Flow after the truth, and you will succeed. You will have no other choice.

You've got to figure "terrifying the piss out of werewolves" is a coup for any monster's CV. Whatever you encountered out there is new. Changing paradigms are peachy, but we have to be on top of it, so that we make it our paradigm. Lets to the Mulder/Scully thing and find out what we can. Be whichever one you want, I don't care. I'll just be phoning in my part anyways.

Life gives us ever more horrors to hone ourselves upon - new ways for us to either fail in fear and vice, or ascend our previous limits in virtue. The creature you've slain is new to us. That is worrisome. I do not like the playing pieces changing mid-game. Inquire further, with sharp mind and sharper weapon. There is something distasteful afoot.

Carmen Preda: only the thousands of vampires,
Carmen Preda: we could counterattack.
Carmen Preda: Give them a war to remember when they are back under the cold, cold soil.
Carmen Preda: But no. They have loosed their mongrel werewolves to run red and rabid.
Carmen Preda: You will see these are unfortunate, mistreated beasts. Not the proud wolves of legend.
Carmen Preda: Do no make the mistake of sparing them your pity.
Carmen Preda: It is too late for them now.
Carmen Preda: Better too late for them than too late for us.
Carmen Preda: Da, I have done this before.
Carmen Preda: This side of my country is a side that...
