Do werewolves have souls? | December 14, 2009

Someone once asked “Don’t you believe wolves have souls?” and it made me wonder what they themselves were made of.

Made me think about how they feel on a full moon night.

You know it’s like common place and knowledge that people, not necessarily my people as it were, Nons, go a little bit crazy and looney – as in lunar, on a full moon night.

A study was conducted recently in some medical journal to see what the link between full moon nights and human behavior changes was. Turns out, humans get just as tropical on the full moon nights, as us werewolves. If not more so.

So hold your judgment on my kind if you will please until you take a good, hard look at your own kind.

I think it comes down to humans not being able to handle the power of the full moon and that’s why there’s a sudden increase in ‘extreme’ behavior if you want to call it that. That leads to violence, and medical mishaps. Maybe we’re all connected to the moon’s mythical force of power over us. But Werewolves have gotten the better deal. We’ve been given what we need to deal with the full moon and lunar weeks. We can shape-shift, change form and feel, for all intents and purposes, free.

Freedom can come in many forms, but I don’t think crazy lunatic is one of them.
But then having never gone the full crazy lunatic mode, I guess I might not
Be the authority on this ‘sensation’.

So is it the werewolf soul that sates us (werewolf’s) on full moon nights, when the humans start going weird? I’d like to think so. That’s our soul being answered, assured and spoken to. That our souls are being noticed and we are being given a sense of love, purpose and fulfillment that perhaps, Nons, lack on such times.

It’s a bit of us versus them and it’s one of those times, on these times, that the police gear up for extra activity on the streets, that health care workers groan knowing they’re in for a heavy duty night of non stop work at the hands of human beings, that makes me glad I’m a werewolf. That I’m different and that I know the essence of my soul.

Our souls celebrate the full moon’s release on us. Rather than release us to the full moon, like humans
who go all out trouble mode on these nights.

So whilst we might all be connected – humans and werewolves, in the big scheme of things, we’re part human too and like the non’s we live amongst, are connected to the moon, there are those of us more privileged than others.

Like, say, werewolves.
