Mei DrabbleBy and large across the world rats and humans owned the cities. Here and there the seagulls took over by a coastal town or two, and the rats took a bit of exception to that, seeing the rule of those urban sprawls as sort of their thing.Obviously there were vampires to contend with too, there were always vampires to contend with. Snotty buggers, but vampires were usually city folk too. Far easier to have a quick drink on the way home without arousing suspicion and drawing lynch mobs to you in a big city. And if the three groups squabbled as neighbours squabbled; if the rats fought with the vampires and the seagulls and foxes from time to time, then this was only the natural result of being in a city, too many people crammed into too little space.

Even the river reflected the lights, mingling with the stars trapped in its depths, making it look like a velvet ribbon shot through with gold and silver. It was almost enough to console Johan that he was never going to see it by daylight. Because how could the harsh light of day ever compare to the Parisian night? Every blemish and stain laid bare rather than decently cloaked by darkness. And while it would have been a dream come true to explore the world of Dumas and Hugo by daylight, to walk along the rue de Rivoli and see the sunlight shining off the statue of Joan of Arc, the nightlife of Paris left him with more than enough to occupy his time. The opera, the theatre, the ballet…all very enjoyable pastimes that helped break up the monotony and loneliness of his present existence.Forever In Paris - Part One by ~Ariskari
