Dear Fans ~
Earth is something that all vampires embrace. Under soil we can find respite and relaxation - an escape from all that troubles us. Now that we are thinking of Earth and how she continues to shake in Japan, with violent after-shocks following that 8.9 big-one, the agony of loss and destruction touches us all rather deeply, emotionally.
The oldest vampires here are talking about their knowledge of Japanese Mythology. Seems Japan was created by brother and sister deity, Izangi & Izanami, who stirred up the ocean to create that landmass. The gods wanted a great city they could embrace - and that's why there's Japan.
Only one of the vampires here have ever been through an Earthquake big as the 8.9. Ross Neterrer was in in Chile on May 22, 1960, when a 9.5 quake hit. It troubled him so much, he's never gone back.
The news media keeps reporting that Japan is in the middle of the burning rim of fire, where most of Earth's earthquakes happen. To vampires, "burning rim of fire" brings up images of historic villages where angry peasants with flaming torches storm upon a single vampire.
