I don’t appreciate the use of terms like “sub” or “counter” unless you’re referring to people who are hell-bent on a path of destroying themselves and everybody else along with them.

What’s wrong with supernatural beings? I mean it’s not they’re your next door neighbor, play loud music all hours of the night, have a barking dog that won’t shut up, rowdy kids, and stuff like that. They live in another world! :)
