* '''Parodied''': Vampires look absolutely nothing like humans, but continue pretending to be human in normal society while enthusiastically stating at every opportunity that they [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial are absolutely not vampires at all]].

** The development of information technology, such as the Internet and sousvellience, breaks the masquerade since there is no way to keep anything a secret anymore.

* "'Reconstructed'": The masquerade exists for the benefit of the supernatural world, who are terrified of humans hunting them down. They'd rather live inside a prison of secrecy than risk what might happen if their existance was made public.

Added DiffLines:
** The masquerade is actually bad for humanity since it prevents them from knowing how to protect themselves from supernatural threats and prevents any checks on the power of whoever is keeping the supernatural a secret. Those who are in the know have an effective monopoly over all interaction between the human and supernatural world, which not only lacks any form of transparency but also restricts any scientific or economic benefits humans may gain. ** The development of information technology, such as the Internet and sousvellience, breaks the masquerade since there is no way to keep anything a secret anymore. * "'Reconstructed'": The masquerade exists for the benefit of the supernatural world, who are terrified of humans hunting them down.

This just sounded more like a deconstruction than reconstruction.
* '''Deconstructed''': The vampires' refusal to show themselves to humans is a sign of their elitism and snobbery - they see themselves as better than typical humans. This leads them to refuse to ask for human help when crisis strikes them all, and they suffer greatly because they will not let themselves integrate into the thriving normal society. * '''Reconstructed:''' A vampire breaks the masquerade, and the resulting consequences are significantly worse than the sacrifices made to uphold it.

Added Reconstruction and a new level of zig-zaggery.
* '''Zig Zagged''': No human knows that the vampires exist... until we meet Alice. Then, however, it turns out that Alice is completely delusional, and although she thinks there are vampires, her beliefs are completely unfounded. Until we find out about the second group of vampires that exactly matches Alice's descriptions, of course. Then, however, it turns out that these vampires are actually just humans pretending to have supernatural powers.

It turns out that this was a smokescreen to conceal the masquerade the werewolves are upholding.
