Let me just say my experience with supernatural beings, fictional and real, was a bit ... rocky.

Not sure if anyone else has seen a pattern, but have you noticed that a lot of supernatural beings make anti-human speeches? It's often the same one. "Blah blah blah, humans are all scum, they're all weak and stupid, we must wipe them off the face of the Earth!"

I've heard that sort of speech more than once, and it makes my blood boil. I've heard it from werewolves, vampires, and even the Slenderman. It's the same thought, over and over.

Supernatural beings may be superior to us natural beings in many ways, but that doesn't justify their ****** attitudes and behaviour towards our kind. Like them, we are more than the sum of our weaknesses.

Us "mere" humans, o mighty supernaturals, have adapted through evolution to have an advantage over the more fleet-footed natural animals that we live with. Yes, we are weak. Humans are the weakest of the great apes, but we have evolved not to be strong, but to have ridiculous endurance. Our ancestors used to stalk prey relentlessly for days, just like the Slenderman would do to hunt us. In those times, we were the scariest natural omnivores on the planes. Even the fastest animals were not safe from our steady pace.

We're not too shabby when it comes to surviving trauma, too, compared to the average natural animal. Whereas a regular animal would go into shock and die from losing a limb, it wouldn't kill us as long as we treat it quickly. We'd keep going.

While we're not hunters or gatherers anymore, we feed each other (or at least most of each other) through farming and fishing. There are 7 billion of us, and last time I checked, you arrogant vampires and werewolves make up only a quarter of our population. The Slenders, even less so. There are only four of you.

As absolute power corrupts absolutely, even with us humans all gone, eventually your own legacy will collapse in due time, like ours. And even then, the world won't be here forever. Our galaxy has a big black hole slowly consuming us all, the sun will expand to Jupiter in three million years, and our neighbouring galaxy Andromeda will crash into us soon, possibly ruining the current balance that our solar system is in. The end of our species may be your beginning, but everything eventually comes to an end. You are not exempt from this rule.

So if I hear one more anti-human speech, I'm going to have a **** fit.

That is all.
