Alright, so the people were distraught over the loss of their family members to violent crime, so they decided to form a community in the ‘village’ where there would be only innocence, where nobody would have to deal with the loss of loved ones at the hands of evil people.
Here’s the question: why did they decide to start speaking in that dorky dialect? With all the clunky, overdramatized speech patterns, with the whole “creatures whose names must not be spoken,” “color which must not be seen,” “old shed that must not be used” bullshit? Why did they have to start speaking like assholes in theatrical tones?
Why did they decide to wear only dorky clothes, complete with buttresses (huge ass-extending things under the womens’ dresses)?
Where did they get that piano that was being played at the wedding party? I am unwilling to believe that they hand-crafted a piano in the village. Did none of the non-elders ever inquire about how the piano was made and where it came from?
On that note, how did the people in the village carry out construction, building maintenance, wood and metal working? All the Elders seemed to be ex-urban-professionals; none of them seemed like they could just abandon their desk job and take up blacksmithing and carpentry! On that same note, where did they get the glass in their windows? Did all the non-Elders simply accept that the glass just appeared out of nowhere, and did none of the children ask their parents “what is that?” There were also glass lamps and plenty of other things that must have been bought elsewhere; nobody enquired about all that junk?
Finally, they moved to the village to escape the cruelty of the real world, yet none of them ever considered that their children and other people still oblivious to the outside world might kill each other regardless? People argue and fight in any culture; there seemed to be plenty of attractive girls to be fought over, in any case. There were sharp objects all over the place; nobody ever got pissed and shanked someone in the ribs with a kitchen knife?
There, M. Night Shayamalayamanaman, answer those.
