i've always made myself a set of guidelines, which doesn't relate to the conventional laws of lycanthropy. all the usual traits, eyebrows jointed, howling at the moon, jumping tall buildings, all that. it doesn't apply when you make yourself your own wolf, which is an idea for a new playwrite i might delve into soon. but, have you ever thought, which i'm very sure a lot of you have, but, why do we worship the moon? why is that our source of power?
let me put forth a barrier
the moon has no light of its own, as we all know, and we all know when the sun sets, the light from the sun reflects off of the moon, giving it that glow, which is why we see it at night. without the sun, we would never see the moon, which means, if we never did see it, we would never have discovered it, from our stand point, and it wouldn't be believed in. so, as me and my wolfess said the other day in the woods, the suns light reflects off the moon, which means we are worshipping the sun.
so, in that aspect, its not the moon is it?
i mean i still howl at the moon, feel its essence, feel its aura, and project my anger onto it, towards the rest of the family
just like the whole vampire with the steak in the heart, why is it that we worship the moon?
you are all your own wolf, find your own personal trait and keep with it.
just a basic description of my thoughts, i'm not trying to change your beliefs, i'm not anti anything, except common and modern civilization.
Who worships the moon? I sure as hell don't. I'm not sure who this post was addressed to, but I'd reckon that no one here worships the moon.
Skin Walker seems to think wolf therians are the same as Hollywood werewolves, just ignore him.

ye i'm stupid. exactly. people who believe themselves to be werewolves obviously got there traits from the werewolves portrayed on screen, in books, through legend. all that. so i do think it is a valid point.
The Moon is our nearest celestial neighbour. Although it is much smaller than the sun, it gives a lot less light. On the basis of gravitational force, this is a small satellite capable of two and a half times the pull of the sun.
ok so i dont really believe the whole hollywood werewolves and i dont worship the moon but i think of the moon not as a being that cant produce its own light so it 'steals' some light from the sun, i think the moon (trying to think of a good word) filters the sun's light into a more serene light and aura, giving it a different effect on each individual who sees it
