Creature Feature Friday: Werewolves

Kate from I Just Want to Sit Here and Read is here today to howl about some of her favorite paranormal creatures...

What is a werewolf?
A werewolf is many things. In fiction they range from turning into a wolf, but still in human form (standing upright, but with wolf-like qualities) to ‘shifting’ into wolf form at the full moon and sometimes at will.

What do you love about werewolves?
Hot in more ways then one. Most werewolves portrayed in fiction run hot blooded and most of the time physically ripped and gorgeous. A downside would be a hot temper, but who doesn’t love a man that runs hot!

Metabolism what? Werewolves can pretty much eat and drink whatever they want and don’t gain a pound. At least in the Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. Elena and the rest of the Pack eat like maniacs and with their high metabolism and changing abilities they stay at their goal weight and not gain a pound. Awesome diet right?

Enhanced…everything. Werewolves are crazy strong, they have keener senses, and they are connected with nature more than any human can be. Definitely would want one with me in a dark alley!

They are alive as a supe can be. There is always the vampire vs. werewolf debate, and as a rep for the werewolves who would want to be around something dead? Yeah immortality sounds cool, but why not be around something with a heartbeat? Not into the cold corpse thing sorry! Speaking of immortality though, most werewolves tend to live out a human lifetime and then some. So there is a taste of the immortality but there’s no wandering the world for thousands of years, you’d think those vampires would get bored?

Overall, werewolves are the superior supe, although I prefer the actual wolf form instead of the wolf/man form. Although they are (most of the time) ruled by the moon, I wouldn’t mind the freeing form of a wolf to change up my normality for a little while.

Favorite werewolf in fiction:
Clay Danvers from Women of the Otherworld Series by Kelley Armstrong.

Favorite werewolf in pop-culture:
Scott Howard (Michael J. Fox) in Teen Wolf.
