One half of my family

Post by Sammy_UK on 05.06.17 7:33

Hi,

I'm completely new to this stuff, but was doing some research and found this forum by accident while looking into the other half of my family. I don't really believe in the supernatural side of this, but it's the closest thing I could find to what I was looking for and I wonder if the idea of vampires is based on actual biological traits in some families.

My family on my cousin's side are a bit odd. Both my aunt (my mum's step-sister) and the uncle's family are from very old French/norman lines. All the kids (they have huge families) are a bit unusual and they teach them an old version of some pagan-jewish-christian mixture (I haven't found a name for it after years of research). They all live a pretty long time, despite very unhealthy lifestyles, and are very very intelligent (lots of engineers, professors, financiers, business owners, etc). Their grandfather won medals in the mind olympics and was a member of Mensa. He worked (we think) as a world class professional gambler, but on behalf of rich people, and had an incredible memory. Then moved abroad and disappeared in his late 80s. The grandmother was a pianist and singer and also disappeared when the son (my uncle) was in his early 20s. They were very wealthy and had a very rich lifestyle in the early 1900s. But both were incredibly private outside of family. Their name literally means strong tooth, both were very pale and the grandmother couldn't spend much time outside due to a 'skin condition' (never diagnosed, so not sure what). The younger generations inherited the same condition and cannot spend too long outdoors without heavy sunblock. The son had 3 children, who are all very intelligent and also wealthy in their own right. They were all taught this same odd religion from birth (my cousin once tried to explain some of it to me, but I was too young to really take it in).

On the mother's side, the family are very old basque lineage. They have a similar belief system, and also share the traits of the father's side (very pale, burn easily, very intelligent, very healthy). All the family are very into meat (one cousin owns a butcher shop, although he doesn't work there), preferably blue/rare and kill and eat their own animals. The woman have problems with aneamia if they do not eat enough meat (one cousin once tried to go vegetarian during college and ended up in ER) and the boys will actually drink the blood as if it's gravy and say they love the taste. They are otherwise extremely healthy and never get sick (despite smoking, drinking, drugs, etc). They all live long healthy lives past 90 (no inherited illnesses, cancer, etc), bar one of the wives who killed herself after marrying into the family and having children. They are very tall and abnormally strong (even the women). In fact, I remember my aunt winning drinks for beating men at arm wrestling in a bar when I was small. Even at 60, she is still a very tall and strong woman and has no problem lifting very heavy things that I would struggle with.

They are very friendly to my side of the family, but generally keep themselves to themselves and follow their own rules. They run their finances like a dynasty, with a trust that they all pay into and use. I can imagine a family like theirs giving rise to the mythical idea of 'vampires' back in 'olden times'.

They don't sound like vampires to me; perhaps, like you said, fearful people created myths.

Yeah honestly just sounds like you rolled a pretty interesting life and your family's prone to genetic conditions (assuming you're being 100% honest). The men could have Renfield's syndrome (but I'm not a healthcare professional, I'm a front desk lady at a hotel). Since your country actually has a semi-functional healthcare system I'd get karyotyped if I were you. I'm curious about the religion bit, though; care to elaborate?

Hello Sammy_UK

Your observations are very interesting. Makes a lot of sense to me. I can actually relate to your your situation (at least in some ways). I would like to talk with you about this topic. Perhaps we can understand each other (or just have a good conversation and learn something new).
Please feel free to contact me - nirvinrevin123@gmail.com

A completely new member, unknown to everyone in the community, joining and asking straight away for direct contact outside of the forum is often a red flag. Just a heads up to the less experienced members of the community.

Well, assuming this is all true, I would very much like the actual name of this family. "Strong of tooth" leads to a few possibilities.

For safety, I will not contact the OP outside of this forum, but being a member of one of the older European families myself, I may recognize the family, if it is in fact a real family.

The story breathes a bit too much of fiction for me to be certain, but then parts of my own family history have actually been written into fiction so, I will not discount the possibility of a real family there, in spite of the probable fiction.

Hello Nightshade

A "completely new member, unknown to everyone in the community" here. Nice to meet you. Smile

Being serious now. I prefer when someone is using my name and speaking to me directly about any (real or not) problem - Rather than talk about me in the third person (like I'm not there) and leaving the topic just with just his/her own assumptions.
I'm real and new to this forum (not "completely" new). But you don't know me as a person, so please - Don't assume something about me based on only one situation. Judging others while knowing only a few simple facts - And also changing them (exaggerating/overstating) for your liking will be always very far from the truth. You won't know who I'm without making a real move and at least trying to speak with me for a while.
I can see many other people with a similar activity at this forum ("beginners"). Aren't people just talking with each other normally here? Didn't saw someone treating new people like a completely strangers (yet) and testing them... I just don't feel like talking to everyone and about everything. This is my choice. So I won't have a lot of posts.

Back to the topic. I understand your concerns, but I think you are a little too "paranoid" in this specific situation (not that the danger is not real at all). Being honest I can appreciate that more experienced users are concerned about everyone's safety here (it's a good sign to me - speaks well about this community) and I'm open to speak with you about your concerns. Of course we don't have to start a whole new discussion here. I will just take some of my own time to write a proper response to your message (I can or even should - as you are referring in this way to my person).

"Registration date : 2017-09-16"
I'm new to this forum. Indeed. But I'm not "completely new".. My account was not created yesterday. There is a difference. Of course I'm a beginner, so I simply wasn't aware that I will appear so strange to someone. I'm here to study and learn new things. Not to create misunderstandings or upset some people. So I'm sorry about this situation. I see your point of view. My message was too straight forward. I agree. This wasn't my intention. I was trying to sound rather neutral ("feel free to contact me"). Not upset somebody. I admit. My mistake.
That being said - I can't understand other things.
As you can see Sammy_UK is a fairy new user too (Registration date : 2017-06-05), so why you are making such a distinction between me and her? She is just a "less experienced member" and I'm a "completely new member, unknown to everyone in the community"... How so? Aren't you putting a 'shadow' on me here? Our 'experience' on this forum is actually very similar (nearly the same). I can't help that I'm new here too (that's why nobody knows me - a normal thing).
If I can ask you for something. Be conscious/ aware (as you are) while treating both of us (or other people) equally.

Another thing is that I'm not just "joining and asking" for anything. Giving (my email) to someone is not the same as asking this person for something. Right? I did this in a polite way too (at least this was my intention).
By writing "(..)joining and asking straight away for direct contact" you are making it look like I made my account just a day ago and was pushing someone to 'give' me something. Which is not true. This is what I mean about you "overexaggerating" this situation and oversaturating my behavior.
I had a two posts before - To the topics that I'm truly interested in (and having personal experiences with). Not very 'strange' numbers (just see other older/younger members of this forum). I'm new to this place, but not to this topic. I have my own reasons to be on this forum.

Please. Simply don't take everything about one person to the extreme  - While being protective to someone else. We are not living in a black&white world. I didn't really affected anybody in a negative way. There is no real harm done.  Why overexaggerating everything and making me look different, while Sammy_UK is nearly as new to the forum as I am? No need for this at all.

I saw that she is not very active here - That's why I thought about giving her my email address. This is really just simple as that. Speaking about more personal topics (me, my family) is also not that easy to do - As not only real members can read it here (this is even more important). I did what I did in good intentions - To give Sammy_UK other options. Writing "feel free to to contact me" is not forcing anything on anybody.

I'm actually open to have a conversation on this forum with anybody. For now I will talk with people more openly - Just on the forum. I hope there won't be situations like this in a future.

As I said. I appreciate that more experienced users are concerned about everyone's safety. But I would be happier if you could threat people more equally. That's all really.
If you still have some concerns - Feel free to PM me (so we won't change this topic into something else). See if I'm real for yourself. I'm open for any conversation. I guess this is the simplest option. I'm not willing to split more hairs on this topic. Anyway... If I would be fake I wouldn't write a message like this. I hope people will feel super-safe now.  Rolling Eyes

Johnathan01, I can only speak for myself.

Humans often do not understand our caution when we do reveal ourselves at all. For many misinformed and misguided souls we hold both the allure and the danger fiction has placed on us. While we are not what fiction has made us out to be, there are those that truly believe we are that and, they either want us to turn them or, want to kill us. One stalker is all it takes to make our lives miserable and, possibly dangerous.

I do not want to risk my safety simply for being who and what I am and, I have even less desire to be forced to harm another in self defense. Better to avoid the possibility of that happening in the first place.
