I have Alexandria's Genesis. But a lot of what people say about it isn't true. Yes I'm *crazy* pale. And I've only been sunburned once (I never
wear sunscreen). I have dark hair (black), and, of course, purple (not violet) eyes. Also I have a *very* fast metabolism. It's hard for me to put on
weight. I. Hate. It. (I'm a 6'1'' boy who weighs 125):
I poop, just like everyone else.
I look young for my age (then again most twinks do
I've been told my body makes a lot of white blood cells (like abnormally so), but I've still been sick before. And I'm pretty sure I can get
diseases (wrap it up people
, but I'd rather not test that...
Here's what I think. All the things I've mentioned can happen to people w/o Alexandria's Genesis. Some people have fast metabolisms, or an above
average white blood cell count. A lot of people are pale. Some people don't really burn or tan (it's a curse I'm afraid). Some people look young
for their age (again, every twink in the gay community). And lots of people have black hair.
I think AG only effects peoples pigmentation and metabolism and white blood cell count somehow (pale, purple, and skinny
). All of which are
largely based on Hormonal signals. So maybe I have somethin wierd goin on in my pituitary which happens to cause these things to happen.
I feel like someone in ye olden times got Alexandria's Genesis and realized that being pale and having eyes the color of royalty could work out in
their favor if they played their cards right (being pale was a sign of wealth). So they decided to spice it up a little by saying they don't create
waste, or menstruate, or grow old (all of which make them sound *very* appealing).
Then maybe their metabolism made them live a lot longer then most (who died at 30), so the common folk just kept exaggerating until dieing at 90
became dieing at 130. And then the person became something of a folk legend and other things were thrown in to spice up the story (like appearing in a
beam of light).
That's my theory anyway.
Also the back story could have been added by the ff writer.
A lot of the symptoms of AG are pretty normal when you think about it. Some people have really weird eyes! There's; black, brown, grey, green, blue,
red (albino's), yellow (*extremely* rare), violet, and hazel (orange in the right light). So, why is purple so hard to believe?
OH! And one more thing. I believe in aliens. But the back story just sounds very "folklore" to me. Personal opinion
