How should a werewolf react to loved ones?

The transformation has happened. The werewolf is on the hunt and ready to kill. But then a loved one appears in eyesight. How does the werewolf react? How much humanity is retained in wolf form?

Sibling Werewolf Character Name change for 2nd draft -Which name pairs together better?

So I'm 6 chapters away from finishing my 2nd draft of my wip werewolf novel During the Blue Hour and I'v decided to change a werewolf characters name.The character whose name I want to change (IMANI) she is not a pov character but she is in every scene with the pov characters and has dialogue cause her brother(ADRIAN) is a pov character . I changed her name like once before i started the 2nd draft . And now her name just irks me and doesn't match sounding wise with her brothers name . I want to change her name to something that matches well with his name.

She is a werewolf who has the celestrial power to control Ice and water and she is a healer . I had a couple of ideas for names but can't seem to choose because I like them all.

Which one pairs well with her brother? I will be choosing the name with most votes and presenting the results on my next video.

Adrian's name etemology is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Adrian is "from Hadria". and is associated with the sea, water the name can also mean “dark,” “dark one,”

Werewolves and morphing topic day 1.

I feel like I would like the idea of it if it wasnt like skyrims werewolves. Tho I would like twilight versions better due to it be an actual you know. Not the whoel vampire thing I hate that tbh I have a distates for most concepts for them due to the whole pure blood insects things. Im saying if i had to be something not real it would be that or mabye a cat cuz they get to sleep all day. Similar to how yorichis form works.

As for why these would matter I came across a post and made a comment on it saying something like what would u do if your a werewolf. But i would have kms if it was skyrims version. Not control,big ass body frame and abs,other things to like how they work there kinda just sets me off to the hell no side of it and the whole blood things is icky.

FAVORITE WEREWOLF EPISODE FROM A NON WEREWOLF TV SHOW - WHAT'S YOURS?(leave your answer in the comments)

So I just got finished watching the Librarians episode . Cause I Like that show and haven't seen it in awhile plus i never finished the later seasons when it was on TNT . While I was watching I found out this SPOILER: In season 3 episode 2 entitled And the Fangs of Death" deals with the Egyptian god of chaos, Apep, who summons the Egyptian god of death Anubis , and in this episode Anubis has the power to change anyone into werewolves.

Its a fun episode and I love it . I didn't realize they had a werewolf episode. it being a non werewolf tv show it played with the mythology a little bit and suggested that the god of death was an actual werewolf god . This is my favorite werewolf episode right now from a non werewolf tv show, What's yours?

Reversion of Red Riding Hood (Quick story piece)

Red knocks on her grandmothers front door, the Grandmother calls out asking who it was. "It's Red Grandmother, and I brought a basket of goodies." "Come in," Grandmother replied and Red goes inside, seeing her Grandmother in bed. "Grandmother, why are you in bed?" "Come here child, I need to show you something." Red comes up and notices her pointy ears. "My grandmother, what big ears you have." "The better to hear you my dear." Red notices the change of her grandmother's eyes. "My grandmother, your eyes look different." "So I can see you better my dear." Red notices the sharp teeth, "Oh my, what sharp teeth you have." "The better to eat what your mother sent me my dear. Did your mother tell you what was inside it?" Red shook her head, assuming it was baked goods but when you opened the cover, what was turned to be a perfume smell of the goods turned to raw meat. Red was shocked. "Grandmother! Why would mother send you raw meat?!" "Because Red...," he gets out of bed and Red felt fear through her body. Her Grandmother taller, but furrier and more wolf looking with her silvery grey fur and hands with thin claws and a tail. "She knows I am a werewolf," holding out her hands. Red atepped back in fear but looked in her grandmother's transformed eyes to know it's really her. She dropped the basket and hugged her grandmother. "Oh grandmother, how did this happen? Is this why mother never lets me visit you anymore?" "Yes child. She was concerned for you as she was for me. She didn't want you to see me like this until you were old enough to see the truth. Oh my dear Red, it is good to see you again." Red tears up a bit, embracing her loving grandmother again.

Wolf Style

Do you consider the Werewolves in Twilight proper Werewolves? I consider them shifters.

i am wondering

do you think a werewolf is perfectly 50% human 50% wolf or one gene is more dominant than the other? And if there is one dominant which one would it be?

Can we talk about the different forms of werewolves more?

It’s been on my mind since I found out the names for the different stages of the transformations. I feel like it’s the only really set werewolf lore that can connect all stories together if told a certain way or you can choose which stage you like best and go from there. I’d also like if everyone here knew the names so we can all have some common knowledge

Kind of a fanfic question

I'm going to ask a question that I particularly think is fanfic, but answer seriously, I'm curious to know your reaction, well the situation is this, if you were a werewolf and adopted a human girl, and she finds out that you are a werewolf and she wants to run away from you holding a gun with a plate bullet, what would you do?

Better werewolf horror

What is something you all have seen or want to see in more werewolf themed media?Specifically what would make them better or more scary in y'all's opinions. I want to see more body horror elements and if I'm being honest, ninety percent of the werewolves I've seen are too pleasing to the eye which I both love and hate. I want a beast that makes me uncomfortable to look at but unable to look away. Give me wolf shapes shoved into man suits!!! What are some of your niche ideas to revamp(pun intended) our favorite monster?

What would you do if you were a werewolf?

If you ask what I would do, I would rob banks and become a hired killer to make money on the side.

Venting

I know that werewolves are mostly folklore but for the longest time I’ve wanted to be one. It’s probably just a stupid delusion but I’ve questioned it so much and hated this fact but as a 23 year old going on 24 I’m too old to wish for this but still I wish to be one. I think it stems from my distain towards how crappy humans are and the idea that I wouldn’t totally be human and that I had a choice but y’know

(I’m sorry if this isn’t allowed you can take it down I just wanted to vent)

How dominant should a werewolf's genetics be?

In my tradition, the only way to be a werewolf is to be born that way, no bites or blood transfusions. A pure-blood werewolf takes the exact form of a wolf, while a crossbreed of human and werewolf (50% wolf, 50% human) takes the form of a crino, I was thinking if this werewolf mixed with another human the wolf gene would remain even smaller (75% human 25% wolf) but I thought the werewolf gene would be overshadowed by the human gene, what do you think?

Any Werewolf Sitcoms?

Hello ! I'm bingewatching Sabrina the Teenage Witch and I was wondering if there were any supernatural-themed sitcoms like it that had werewolves as either the main cast or side-characters. Thank you
