Yeah, but it's still fantasy.

I don't believe in werewolves because it's biologically impossible for someone's body to undergo such a drastic change.  I do, however, believe in people with clinical lycanthropy.

I too strongly believe in werewolves, other fantasy creatures (vampires, warlocks, fairies, etc.), and other demensions and worlds in our own.
I mean come on Earth is way to big to contain ordinary people and animals, there will always be hidden secrets withing this atmosphere and others.
I think it would be more than amazing if I actually saw something out of the ordinary i.e any fantasy creature. I've read way too many stories to not believe.




I <3 werewolves

The new Teen Wolf series is surprisingly good.

A vampire I can understand logically for instance is might be caused by some sort of virus that causes the victim to fear sunlight, crave blood etc but a shapeshifting human/wolf is harder to logically explain.

I believe, more than just that I want to become one.  I joined this site hoping someone could help me achieve that.

Why do you want to become a werewolf?

I don't believe in werewolves.  Wouldn't that be wild if they really did exist.  Talking about being afraid to go out at night during certain times of the month.
oh there is a beast during "certain" times of the month >.> i have known her for awhile now.

Just like Good wizards choose not to bad things, just a shame they dont exist.

Might be able to magic me a tidy overdraft and double gin.

Thanks,

Just like the fictional vampire, there are no fictional werewolves :blush:
BUT! There is Therianthropy :clap:

Therianthropy – psychopathological and psychodynamical aspects by the Department of Social Psychiatry and Psychotherapy and Department of Clinical Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany

The imagination of being transformed into an animal or being an animal is called Therianthropy.

It is a delusion in the sense of self-identity. It is mainly found in schizophrenic disorders but can be a symptom of other psychiatric disorders as well. Psychodynamically this kind of delusion can be interpreted as an attempt to project suppressed affects, especially with aggressive or sexual content, into the figure of an animal.

In Neolithic tribes "shape-shifting" was practiced Shamanically, in that the pelt of say a bear would empower the wearer with the power of the bear-god and help him in the hunt or in war (as with the Norse Berserkers from which the myth of the werewolf originates).

Werewolves and lycans as we know them in pop culture are about as real as the Rolex I bought in Vietnam last year.

But there has to be some kind of cryptid that would account for the sightings of supposed "werewolves"
