AtoZ2020 - W is for Werewolves - #AtoZChallenge

Virginia Waytes' Sexy Stories - AtoZChallenge 2020 - W

AtoZChallenge 2020

Hello, Lovelies, and welcome to this new week of the AtoZChallenge. We've made it all the way to W - we are so close to the end. For this year's AtoZ I am introducing my new podcast and eBooks, with character intros, places and themes from The Manor. The episodes go out every Tuesday so look up E, L, R & X, or just check out the podcast & book pages.

Today I have another species breakdown for you. So come in, relax and take a look around.💖

W is for Werewolves

W is for Werewolf

There are more werewolves at The Manor than any other species of supernatural being, but there is a very simple explanation for this: werewolves live in packs. While there are such things as lone wolves, most werewolves to not thrive alone.

Some packs have a very loose structure with the alpha in charge and lieutenants for when the alpha isn't there to deal with something, but mostly the members get on with their lives, just with an extended family to help. Other packs have a more ridgid structure where the alpha rules the other wolves with complete authority using their lieutenants as enforcers.

Wolves have the ability to attain a wolf humanoid form as well as that of the full wolf, with variations in between. In human form they have heightened senses, very fast reflexes and greater strength than a human, this increases in their other forms.

Werewolves have a pack bond that links them all together. This bond is strongest for the alpha, but all wolves feel a connection to others in their pack. Pack bonds can be broken, but this is traumatic to the wolf and can be traumatic to the pack in some cases. Normal pack bonds can be broken by the individual wolf, however, the hardest kind of pack bond to break is one where the alpha is related to the pack member by blood. This requires the help of another alpha to achieve.

Some wolf packs live by old traditions, worshipping the moon goddess, but this is rare in the modern age.

No two packs are quite the same. Some are urban, some rural, but the one thing they all have in common is that they do best as a group.

There are currently ten werewolves in The Manor's pack, Gerry, the alpha, eight others and Joshua, the newest pack member, taken in while running from his uncle, his original alpha. Joshua's presence will change the pack more than they could have imagined. Keep up with The Manor in the Sexy Stories podcast and eBooks to find out more.

Than you for dropping by.

Please do comment below and link me to your AtoZ posts if you are taking part 💖. If you don't know what to say feel free to use to question below for inspiration, but don't feel you have to answer it.

Q. If you were part of a werewolf pack, would you like to be an alpha or a lieutenant, or would you prefer to just get on with your life and let others worry about running the pack?

I'm something of a control freak, so I suspect I would want to be something to do with the leadership, although I'm not sure I would want to be the alpha.

My other self (Natasha Duncan-Drake) is also taking part in this years AtoZChallenge over at Tasha's Thinkings. Her theme is Vampire Drabbles (100 word stories). W is for Wolf

  1. There is a role-playing game called Werewolf: Apocalypse. One of my favorites to play. I usually played wolves that were lieutenants in the pack, or peacemakers (born under the half moon).
