Interview - Part 4, FIRE the Hunger

Part 4 - What is the theme that holds the stories together?

Fire’s personality is the theme. FIRE stays alive by eating, which is the horror of FIRE making it a monster. FIRE is a voracious, selfish, hungry, villain that has no guilt or shame and feasts on everything. FIRE eats oxygen out of the air, which is its very best friend.

FIRE has hypnotic powers to maintain a spell-bound entranced viewer. I witnessed this as a kid watching the hypnotic flames flicker back-and-forth sometimes yellow or orange and maybe green or blue fueled eating FIRE eating its wooden victim. As FIRE reached up into the sky, it popped sparks to escape the trees to satisfy its ravished appetite.
Where I live now, FIRE burned the dried ivy from the house next door eager to eat the house and sleeping victims and damaged our shed in the backyard. Years later an enormous FIRE came from smoldering roots in the Public Park up the hill behind our house. The wind blew the smoking embers into flames, which roared down the hill eating houses, pets, and trees. When ashes fall and the smoke gathered around our house, I panicked. I took weird things, like the dogs, chickens, phones, frozen chicken, and all our coats. And, all the photos I had because I worked on my Father’s family tree. That FIRE was drowned by Firemen just two blocks away from our home.

FIRE is a monster and the humans needed to know this and how to control its hunger.

Interview, Part 3 - FIRE, the Hunger

#3 - What do you mean by the premise and how does it work with the plot?

The premise is how the stories are organized to offer the assumption, speculation, belief that is theorized, surmised, assumed to prove or disprove, like a hypothesis of a scientific experiment. These stories are metaphors to demonstrate FIRE has an appetite that goes beyond what humans imagine.
A warning came from god Kaang, "If humans get their hands on FIRE, there will be no harmony only fear and horror among the animals with humans." Then the stories are organized to prove Kaang’s warning starting with the legend of Goddess Pele’s volcanic anger and eruptions to the gods hold ignitable FIRE in their volcanoes to make precious jewelry. The humans desire to own FIRE power which is also fueled by their hypnotic enchantment with FIRE. The animals do seek the warmth and light while also understanding FIRE’s horror. The humans are so beguiled by FIRE a hunter steal FIRE without understanding the risks and costs he carries with FIRE’s hunger.
