Looking for a cheap and easy way to add some lycanthropic flair this Halloween? (Or year-round?) May I suggest this lovely sign?
It costs a mere $1, and this is the second year that Target has carried it.  It’s two-sided (the other side warns against Vampires).  It’s made of thick cardboard, so it is not weather-proof, but I’ve had it hanging in my room for a year, and I’ve yet to tire of it.Edit:  Apparently some folks are having issues locating this.  The werewolf sign is not located at the back with the classy Halloween stuff; It’s up at the front, by the doors, with their 1-5 dollar deals.  I strongly encourage the purchase of werewolf-related materials… after all, that’ll likely mean more werewolf stuff in years to come!

Happy Autumn everyone!Duality is kind of a thing for me. I figured this would be a good opportunity to express that.

Also, since it is now officially Halloween season, Expect a few reviews and comments on any werewolf-related merchandise, food, etc. amongst the random folklore.




It’s that time of perfect balance again, you lovely wolf people.  Enjoy it!

This prediction works best if someone is reading the instructions to you.  If you would like to hear my crummy voice reading the directions aloud, please click here and view it on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Bz-WBEYMao&feature=youtu.be If not, please continue reading.

This image is not only a map of a werewolf’s territory, but it’s also a demonstration that a werewolf’s sense of smell is so keen that the pack doesn’t need to see you to track you down.


Don’t believe me?  Tell you what, let’s put it to the test, but you must follow these directions Precisely.  I can track you through my territory, even though I may seem a world away.  You can run… but I WILL find you.

 

We’ll start in the northernmost Forest at the New Moon.  However, you have to decide when the hunt begins.  Do you leave at Dawn?  In the Midday heat?  Perhaps you catch the last rays of sun at Dusk?  How about in the shadows on the Eve?  Or in the middle of the Night? Please pick Dawn, Midday, Dusk, Eve, or Night.  Then, skipping the space you’re on (the New Moon) Spell that time, moving one moon clockwise per letter. You’ve now arrived at a new region in my territory.  These regions are the Cave, Forest, Bay, Field, Lake, Bog, and River.  Not counting the space you are on, spell that region, moving one moon clockwise per letter.

 

Now, remember, it was you that picked the departure time; it’s you who’ve been moving around the map.  I have no way of knowing where you are.  So, you’ve evaded me, and are in a new region in my territory.  But I think I’m getting closer, and you must keep going.  Not counting the space you are on, spell that region, moving one moon clockwise per letter.

 

You’ve yet again landed in a new region, but my pack has fanned out, and while we haven’t located you, I now know where you aren’t.   You aren’t in the Forest. Nor are you in the western Field.

 

You aren’t in the northern part of the Lake.

 

And you aren’t in the southern part of the Bay, either. However, my packmates remain in these locations, marked by blood splatters.  These places are no longer safe for you to travel in, and you must skip them from now on.

 

Not counting the space you are on, spell that region, moving one moon clockwise per letter, while skipping the blooded moons. … I’ve got you. You’re in the southern Bog, On the Full Moon.

 

 

 

 Just in time for the Halloween Season!

 I’ve actually had this image and the rules pretty much done for weeks now, but I’ve just now managed to get things audio-recorded and such. 
I hope you’ve enjoyed this lycanthropic re-imagining of the classic magic trick, The Mind-Reading Clock. Thanks so much for joining me!

Enjoy the last full moon of the summer, you howling creatures of the night.

I’m not much of a drinker, but I have a bottle or two of various werewolf beers on hand almost year-round.

This is a closely video-referenced Animation I did a long while ago for my webcomic Eldritch.

The moon rises, and is then followed by a wolf.  

 

While the association of werewolves and the full moon in older folklore is largely French, in modern times, due to the spread of that particular lycanthropic element in film, nearly everyone these days draws a connection between the werewolf and the full moon.  

 

As a result, in the context of modern lycanthropic perceptions, I have a certain interest in Hati, son of Hróðvitnisson.  Hati is a wolf of Norse myth that chases the moon, and is destined to swallow it at the beginning of Ragnarök.  

 

Hróðvitnisson is said to mean “Famous Wolf” which has caused some to speculate that he is in fact the son of Fenrir, the monstrous lupine offspring of Loki, the trickster.  If so, the humanoid heritage of the wolf is of note, indicating that there is something of a man in the wolf, even though it does not spend most of its time as one.  

 

And beyond that, there is something simply lycanthropic about the appearance of a wolf-beast, preceded by the rise of the moon, even if the wolf in question does not intend to soak up the moonlight, but rather, to devour it whole.

I feel the imagery here is relevant to this blog, though I have no lycanthropological musings this evening.  It’s simply a gift for my friend over at http://shade-rartblog.tumblr.com/.
