MYTHOLOGY MEME | (1/8) LEGENDARY CREATURES
A WEREWOLF, also known as a lycanthrope, is a mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or a therianthropic hybrid wolf-like creature, either purposely or after being placed under a curse or affliction (e.g. via a bite or scratch from another werewolf). The werewolf is a widespread concept in European folklore, existing in many variants which are related by a common development of a Christian interpretation of underlying Indo-European mythology which developed during the medieval period. Belief in werewolf develops parallel to the belief in witches, in the course of the Late Middle Ages and the Early Modern period. Like the witchcraft trials as a whole, the trial of supposed werewolves emerges in what is now Switzerland in the early 15th century and spreads throughout Europe in the 16th, peaking in the 17th and subsiding by the 18th century. The persecution of werewolves and the associated folklore is an integral part of the “witch-hunt” phenomenon, albeit a marginal one. During the early period, accusations of lycanthropy (transformation into a wolf) were mixed with accusations of wolf-riding or wolf-charming. (x)
Castiel loves the feeling of the thick, soft fur against his back and the touch of sharp claws soothingly caressing his scars and leaving new ones, not as ugly as those left after their first, violent encounter, when he barely made it out alive from the mindless fury that was Dean during the full moon, and much more welcomed.
Just in case anyone is interested, Bad Dragon came out with a werewolf cock sheath: The Werewolf Were-Able.
Aside from being able to purchase something like this, I’m interested in if it’ll pop up in any fanfiction. I’m sure people can come up with lots of ideas (bottom!Derek + knotting and/or Stiles wants to be knotted but werewolves don’t actually have knots, etc)
A Sexy But Deadly quick hit!
Laurie from Trick r Treat
Even when she’s not playing Sookie Stackhouse on “True Blood,” Anna Paquin just can’t contain her thirst for blood. In this Canadian slasher, Paquin played Laurie, a shy 22-year-old virgin — who also happened to be a boy-hungry werewolf.
“What big eyes you have.“
A lycanthrope transforms in front if his friend for the first time.
"Oh my god." says his friend, "You just turned into a wolf."
"Yes," he replies, "I am a were."
Dean’s complete and total geek out about the werewolves is adorable.
An American Werewolf in London.
Uuugh yes, this is still one of my favorite transformation sequences. Look at that makeup work, too.
The Paris sequel may actually be my favorite werewolf design. They’re monstrous and ugly and muscular, almost hyena-like. I like the concept of that better than a hulking but almost anthropomorphic wolf.
