The Animal Menagerie

I feel it necessary to post a few rules in reference to the entertainment complex known as The Animal Menagerie. If you don't know of it feel free to overlook this information unless you plan to visit Circe in the future. For the residents of Circe, reading and remembering this information is in your best interest. There may be a test later.

1. The Animal Menagerie straddles the wall with an entry on both sides. No shifter, and I mean NO shifter, has permission to exit through the doors leading into Georgetown. This should be obvious. Each of you should be shaking your head over my even mentioning this irrefutable fact. If not, feel free to contact me in person.

2. The Menagerie is an adult entertainment center not a daycare. Under no circumstances is it acceptable to allow your children to enter with or without you. Those friendly doormen who were keeping their sight above waist level and missing the youngsters sneaking in have been treated. I personally ensured they will have no such vision problems in the future. Any person, shifter or human, younger than twenty years of age will be turned away.

3. The Pleasure Caves located at the rear of the building are for the mutual enjoyment of everyone who enters. Guards have been posted to ensure no one in bonds is dragged in conscious or not. I really can't believe I'm having to address this. Just as we don't play with our food, we don't drug and tie-up our playmates.

4. It will no longer be a 24/7 establishment. Unfortunately, recent trouble has the human council of Georgetown considering a curfew for their residents. As all of you are aware, I will never set such restrictions within FNT. However, to keep the humans where they're supposed to be I've been asked to regulate the Menagerie's hours of operation. I haven't established those yet and will welcome your input.

For the time being these are the most important rules. There are others listed by each entry.

My View of Things

Humans can be quite amusing at the best of times. I try to remind myself on a daily basis there are many humans with redeeming qualities. I just don’t know if there are enough of them to outweigh the others. I think of my ex-wife and it turns my stomach to remember that I chose her of my own free will. Karma sure can be a bitch, and she showed no mercy when she paired me with that sadistic whore. The only goodness out of that union was my beautiful daughter, Emily. She is half human, the poor child, and one day I’ll have to repent for that grave mistake.

I look out as I soar high above the human lands, disguised as a golden eagle, and none of them the wiser. With my keen sight I see fewer and fewer acts of kindness on the human side of the wall than before the war. Now they are wary of even each other, as they try to live in this new world of our making. I am proud to be a shifter. I’ve roamed this earth for nearly three-hundred years and revealing myself as an animal cost all that had grown precious to me in that time.

My ex-wife wasn’t much of a loss, but my daughter, my job, friends and colleagues… It’s left a hole in me I don’t know how to heal. The alpha has my undying loyalty, for he has the strength to see us through this transition. The humans are learning to live with us and we with them. However, I don’t know how long this fragile peace will last. How long can the animals control their baser nature to kill that which they don’t understand? As a shifter, I only hope the humans will remain humane.

It starts here:

Good evening. This is the first post for the new FNT blog. Here I will update every member of the pack on news that is important enough for all of you to know, but not so important I need to step into your minds and plant it there. This is a project I've been planning for a while, however, as negotiations continue with the human government my time has been stretched thin. Every now and again you may receive news from someone other than myself. Nevertheless, it will be straight from me.

First, I'd like to reiterate that hacking into the Worldwide Human Internal Network is forbidden and punishable by FNT law. My technological team has spent countless hours creating and maintaining the Shifter Worldwide Network. Therefore no one should have reason to use WHIN for any reason whatsoever. If you encounter any problems with SWN please go through the appropriate channels to report them.

Second, news has reached my ears that the Animal Menagerie has seen an increase in shifter/human violence. Whether it is originating with the humans or not I expect every member of my pack who frequents the Menagerie to take extra care with the humans in their midst. We are stronger, faster and smarter than them. Be the better animal and don't take advantage of their weaknesses.

Third and final, the incident at Castor laboratories has been resolved. I'm aware that some residents of Circe took it upon themselves to breach the wall while the investigation was ongoing. That is forbidden by both governments. If anyone feels they have a reason to travel into Georgetown I'll be more than happy to discuss why that is not so. I'm currently residing at the fortress in the New Colorado Territories and plan to remain here for an indefinite period of time. Feel free to come visit and we'll discuss your need to defy me.

If there are any questions about anything posted above, let me know.
