About the "traditional" shifting scene

I get that the "modern traditional" way of depicting a scene of transformation involves claws emerging from nails and teeth somehow sharpening itself into fangs and somehow the claws receding back into the nailholes, and the fangs dulling back to human-shaped, but just hear me out for a bit here, be...

Something about the psychology of ancient werewolves

So I had a conversation with a lovely young lady a few days ago: "Now I don't profess to be a psychologist, but I keep thinking... an ancient werewolf, who lived for so long even to the present day, who's probably seen so much of the world, that all the suffering, all the death, all the wars they've...

I'm not touching that with a ten foot pole. Oh my god, Tasha is the most artificially-made b**** stereotype I've ever seen in recent memory.

Re: "Identity scent" for humans

This might work, but I know only one good way of doing it. Hair of the dog good sir? You'll need a scent extracted from a werewolf, something that cannot be replicated anywhere else by accident. That way there's only three likely outcomes. Either your werewolf meets you. Your werewolf meets another...

"Identity scent" for humans

So you're a human civilian affiliated with werewolves. You want to meet a werewolf in a crowd, but you're the one waiting, and the werewolf is the one looking, and you prefer to be anonymous, so the werewolf doesn't know what you look like. You can't just do anything like flashing imagery or doing s...

Re: Freeborn Novel Now Online

It's just... how many years was this worked on? How many arguments kept popping up over the years in the section of the forums that's meant to be some kind of King of the Hill for the universal ideal concept of a werewolf that Anthony stated he'd use as a reference library for Freeborn? All of that,...

Re: Freeborn Novel Now Online

Why the wanton dead humans? Why is Max keeping Tasha around even though she's clearly shown to be unsympathetic? Why is Tasha such a b****? Why is there only two extremes for choices given to the exposed humans? Why am I still reading this? And no, don't even try to give me her backstory that was al...

Re: "Why bother"

I'd also like to reiterate how much I feel like I'm ruining the werewolf fandom by pretty much making them into "superheroes", when the least I've done is just give them clothes to keep their balls and tits from flying everywhere, and tools and weapons tailored for their giant hands. God forbid I ma...

Re: "Why bother"

I've backed out of the online artist communities entirely. I put my faith in one, it dried up. I put my faith in Artspots, but I knew it was a sinking ship.

Sometimes I just wonder why I bother. Got rejected twice in DA's biggest werewolf group, and I'm not in a hurry to get rejected a third time, I get the sinking feeling other fans are just trying to straight up avoid me, either because I'm too passive-aggressive for their liking, or the werewolves I ...

Re: Werewolves and PETA

It dawned on me a while ago that in a round about way, the "Bite them so if they tell anybody they'll be putting themselves at risk." could play out a few ways. My way, if I was bitten by a werewolf under the presumption that it would keep me quiet about the existence of werewolves, would be the wo...

Re: Werewolves and PETA

The problem is that PETA isn't me, and considering PETA's modus operandi and past history, it's not above them to think shapeshifters are abominations, and that they should be exterminated at any cost, for whatever petty reason they have. What makes them just a bit more frightening is that they don...

Re: Werewolves and PETA

I'm personally convinced that animal activist organizations pose the biggest risk to werewolves, because it's hard to tell which one is genuinely for a noble cause, and which ones are national derivatives of PETA. You wouldn't be laughing when you find out that PETA stole your pups and is very like...

Werewolves and PETA

So, from personal experience, this is what I've observed with werewolf stories and media: Hunters: "We need to get out of this mess before the hunters find us and kill us all, they don't care who's who, Jesus Christ hates anyone who isn't human" Government: "We need to keep ourselves hidden from the...

At least your rambling has more words and is generally more educated and coherent. The point about tiger skin is interesting.

Re: Greying skin is stupid. Darkening skin, however...

"A sign of sickness" would imply that the skin also has a lot of other awful symptoms, like black spots, eczema-like rashes, or just excessive dryness of the skin, which could potentially run contrary to interpretations on how lycanthropy makes people "feel really really good". The point I brought u...

I've never understood why werewolves had to have their skin go completely grey for no good reason. I think it's kind of dumb, even if it's reasons like designers getting around the budget of fully-furred bodies or "MY ARTISTIC VISION!!!111". But to that trope's credit, it actually got me thinking ab...

Re: The ultimate question... FRESH OR COOKED?!

I know, right? Not to take fresh meat for granted, but there's such an enormous list of dishes you can make out of cooking meat, you'd be missing out on so much that it's almost ridiculous. Even campfire cooking has a considerable menu for any skilled chef.

Re: The ultimate question... FRESH OR COOKED?!

... No, you're missing the point of this topic. This isn't serious fluff about what a werewolf should be, this is about two different clashing opinions based on personal taste.

You know... Which is more delicious? Console VS PC? Which is best?

Based on a rarely-if-ever touched topic of Urban Werewolves VS Forest Werewolves, there eventually comes the most pressing question of all: Fresh meat, or cooked meat?
