Werewolves in Faya do have a similar form that you see in most werewolf monster movies. But it’s not the same as their normal shapeshifting. Frenzy takes over the mind and body.  Most werewolves are a little self-aware during a full moon, but the mindset is more animalistic.

Turning into a berserker outside of a full moon is rare, but it happens.  Have you ever lived in a city where your team has won a Superbowl , or a World Series? People get all worked up and go crazy.  They start a riot. They start acting like animals and mob rule takes over people’s common sense. Now picture that with long claws and teeth and a tendency towards bloodshed. Same thing.

Edit:

So… As some of you have mentioned, this page had a few typos. I’m sure some of you have noticed that they’re the same ones I’ve made in the past. And that’s part of the problem. That’s always been my problem. No matter how many times I tell myself I know these rules, I know the difference between then, than, your, and you’re, I still make mistakes. When I’m reading it in my head, it all looks fine. But it isn’t. I try to proofread these things, but I don’t see mistakes until someone points it out to me. After that it looks so obvious. I don’t know why I keep making the same mistakes over and over, but I do. It’s like my brain is stuck on them.

When I was a kid, my teachers drilled these rules into me, and I did my best to remember them and fix my mistakes. But I was always behind in class. I can’t tell you how much it hurts to have a teacher tell you you’re stupid. I’m lucky my family has always been supportive.

Even though writing is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, I still love it. Ironically enough, English was one of my favorite subjects because I loved story telling. I loved reading and still do. I was just a lot slower than all the other kids in my class. It wasn’t until college and art school where I started feeling good and felt like my hard work was finally showing at something. But even then, I still avoided writing because I was afraid of it. I was afraid of making mistakes because I knew I would.

So, this is my mountain to climb. One side of the mountain is called Dyslexia and the other side is called Fear. I know I’ll make mistakes. And it’s really frustrating, because for whatever reason my dyslexic brain gets stuck on the same mistakes and I keep repeating them.

Thank you to everyone for pointing out errors. Despite my best intentions I know I’ll make more. And I’ll probably keep making the same mistakes. Please be patient with me and please continue to point them out to me and I’ll fix them. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for your help. Send me a note or message me in comments and I’ll fix the errors right away.
