Re: Further Confusion 2011

Well, Further Confusion 2011 has come and gone. Lots of canids in the Fursuit Parade. Lots of fun at the con. In 2012 Further Confusion will be held in the San Jose Convention Center. Two hotels are directly connected to the convention center, The Hilton and the Marriott.

Interesting prospect for June in ABC's "The Gates"

Though information is scanty, there is enough to reveal that this private community includes more than just vampires, but also other bump in the night folks like werewolves among its residents: "Meet Brett (played by Colton Haynes).

Re: Initiation Ceremony - The bite: How would it go? (detailed)

Hmmm Humans are social animals Wolves are incredibly more so. The lone wolf is the exception and the rarity. I would not be surprised if wolves hang together a lot and socialize muchly. Thusly while formal meetings, a human thing, can be scheduled, the opportunities for werewolves to network outside...

Well, Scott, consider the similarities that do exist between Wolf Society and Human. Both are pack animals, I would submit.

Re: Initiation Ceremony - The bite: How would it go? (detailed)

Actually if it was done out of an emergency necessity when nothing formal could be done, then I would not be at all surprised if something more familial or formal in a loose sense would be done later to make the event of the new membership in the pack recognized as special. Maybe a small welcoming c...

Re: Initiation Ceremony - The bite: How would it go? (detailed)

Wolves and humans have so much in common. Most especially how social and about family they are. Meld human and wolf and do you think these disappear ? Even without formal rituals, we are inclined to small social rituals, celebrations and memorials. I think it is a natural thing to celebrate the adop...

I have noted the repeated mention of helplessness during 'the change'. This does in fact make sense. Now, let us consider, wolves are very social. And being so there are social interdependencies and levels of trust that are incorporated into the individuals as members of a pack. Their personality is...

See... I dislike the idea of self transformation entirely.

Sometimes during films, folks heading out are making emergency runs to the watercloset.

Did you see folks coming in while the film was running ?

Some of those may have been returnees.

In nature, humans seldom grow tails, and yet, for some, the proof is in the seeing. There are persons with small tails, with the striated muscle and nervous wiring that they can move said tail.
