Or kidnapees which seems to be a popular term at the moment. I was tempted just to let them surprise you, but guilt over things I have done thus far forced me to announce:
Our first guests are set to arrive tomorrow. Please, please, remember: They did not do this to you. I did this to you. If you need to take out aggressions take them out on me. They are innocent humans, most will not know how to respond to your anger. What if you were in their shoes? You wouldn't want your hero screaming at you for you being a fan, would you?
Thank you in advance for your cooperation, for those who do.
