Hi, second time posting here (I hope this is the right place for this) and was building my own little fictional world about closet monsters and started to think about why they would scare people, much less kids and tried to come up with something reasonable without ripping off Monsters Inc.'s premise. I had a few ideas but was wondering if anyone could ether fine tune it or come up with a better reasons.
The monsters decided humans had to get lost and threw them into a shared dimension ages ago, about before the dark ages, and over time the human race began to forget and think it is all unreal which angers the monsters after what happened and constantly reminding humans they exist no matter how much they plug their ears and la-la it out without exposing themselve too much, they maybe monsters but bulets still hurt.
It's entertainment, there is publishing companies in the old days (hundreads of years) that take the story of a monster scaring someone and sell the story to the masses. Times may have change and the delivery systems have changed too but the bussiness is still the same, scare someone and get a story to get paid.
There is also strict guildlines for all of the ideas in my fiction:
1. Being a closet monster is a job, someone pays someone to do it and many monsters don't like it but have little to no choice in the matter.
2. No killing, maiming or over scaring, it's a strict guideline of the goverment that no monster should kill or harm a child other than make him pee himself, anything more that monster would have serious prinson time, if not death row.
3. The monsters are kind of like people, they got lives and bills to pay even if the world they live in is a bit warped in physics.
That is all I got, if anyone has any ideas or comments I am willing to listen.
