Are werewolves real?

YES. I am now convinced that werewolves exist or existed in some form and are real.

Here’s my proof:

In almost every ancient culture I look up, I find some reference to some kind of a dog-headed being or “werewolf”. For example, in Greek mythology you have the story of Lycaon (an evil spirit?) who transforms into a wolf. In Latvian mythology you have the Vilkacis – an evil being similar to a werewolf. The Native American legends have a “werecoyote”. You have the German fairy tales Märchen, were people transform. The Serbs and Slovenes believed that certain birthmarks were the indicator of people able to transform (most commonly into wolves). In Russia, even a prince – Prince Vseslav of Polotsk was supposed to be a werewolf who prowled the night.

And seriously, the list goes on and on through every culture that you can think of, there is some kind of reference to a werewolf. So, clearly the question is begging to be asked…are werewolves real?  What I’ve found, is that when there is something like that, that keeps showing up in culture after culture, there is some truth to it. It originated somewhere. Now, I’m not saying that they necessarily exist today – I don’t know, though I imagine they very well might. But I’m saying that they for sure must have existed and have been real at some point. How could every culture have made this up by themselves????  Are werewolves real?  Review the information, then you be the judge.

    @Lee Ann: Try Kelley Armstrong. The romance aspects take a back seat to world creation and plot development. Easily one of my favourite authors.

    Thanks for checking me out! 🙂 But don’t let the word Romance fool you. I’ve built (and am still building) a world where plot is everything. The romantic conflicts feed it, not the other way around. In fact, it took my publisher a while to understand why the romance isn’t the central theme in my books. Thankfully, they love me, so I’ve been given complete artistic freedom to delve as deeply into the darkness as I want – which is quite deep. The first three Mystic Waters books (trilogy) are Psychological thrillers that set up the following ten books in this series. All of them are plot driven by the characters themselves… and some of these characters would burn the hair off of your chinney-chin-chin! 😉

    BTW… this website will be in the acknowledgement section of Sapphire Blues as a material reference, if that is okay with the owner! Just let me know. The manuscript is still in galley form, and I get one more look at it, and can still make the change if not okay, before publication.

    @Lycanhope: I’m a big Jim Butcher fan when it comes to fantasy based novels, the mans brilliant haha

    Incidentally my other favourite author. Love dem coincidences. Dresden ftw

  7. Tia says:

    @JC Wardon: Hey. 🙂 My friend is writing books and she started in 2005. 🙂 She is on to her 3rd book now. Her books are about werewolves,vampires,witches,angels and demons. How I found at that she was written a book was back in 2012 and then when we was talking about that I told her about the boys and girls that was in school. That was the main reason why her and me are good friends now. 😀 But anyway, is there anything that you could tell me that might help her? 🙂

  8. Lee Ann says:

    @Lycanhope: Holy crap! You’re the first person I’ve ever talked to online that actually knows about the dresden files! Haha that’s awesome! I love that he doesn’t really write weak characters. There’s no helpless damsel nonsense, hell even the romance is a revolving nightmare it’s awesome

    @Tia – You didn’t say if your friend was published or not. The industry is different now than when I started writing. Back then you mailed a letter to a publishing house with a synopsis, waited sometimes for months to hear back, once they requested your manuscript (if they did) you printed it out and mailed an entire manuscript (YES, U.S. Postal Service!), waited several more months, and then heard back whether they were interested in your story, your writer’s voice, you writing style, etc… To date, I have published more than twenty-five books under my two names and am currently contracted for 16 more, and have an editor asking how soon I can begin another series I just mentioned to her, that I will likely start writing for 2016 or 2017. That series will be a spin-off from Sapphire Blues (because I’m so in love with these characters and the secondary characters must have their own stories told). 🙂

    NOW, the world of publishing is a whole different animal. Anyone, whether they can tell a story or not, whether they can write a cohesive novel or not, and even, whether they can spell, or not, can now self-publish their own books on the internet. There are also very established writers, and those first time wonders, who do very well doing this also. However, again, this is my opinion, if I were untried and new to this, I would definitely seek one of the many publishing companies out there (however caution must be used here as well) to have people judge your work – who know what a good book is as opposed to a poorly plotted one – who knows the difference between a new author who shows promise even if not yet a publication ready storyteller. A good publisher will have layers of editors and beta readers who will judge the book before it ever sees publication, as well as legitimate connections within the publishing industry.

    A diamond only sparkles once it’s cut and polished. The same is true a good book.

    Ultimately, the best thing your friend can do is put herself, or himself, out there, and submit it to a publishing house to see what kind of reaction results… I wish them best of luck.

    This is gonna sound strange: I love werewolves/werewolf myths yet I’m afraid to believe they’re real, probably because when I was really young my brother gave me a horror book about werewolves/vamps etc. I was afraid for years until my parents told me they don’t exist – which I believed until now because they believe in other things as well (ghosts and wiccanmagic) so if they dont believe in werewolf they must have a good reason because they believe in the supernatural. But now I’m in doubt because most of the time, if there are ageold myths there is some truth in it, but biological it can be possible- humans and wolves are just to different. It would kill you to change into a real wolf, I always thought and you just cant get heightened sense that quickly. So I dont know what to believe and althought I totally understand it if you think I’m a ignorant (insert insult) who isnt worth this beautiful site, please understand that I’m desperate and afraid I’m going crazy/lycanthropic because I think I have transformed and it felt very real but… and I cant tell anyone because they would sent me to an institute.

      I feel like I should probably touch this one.
      So to start off with, it’s totally fine to believe whatever you want. I can tell you that there’s nothing to be scared of, but it’s up to you to make your own decision on that.
      And absolutely, a myth or story will have some grain of truth to it, almost always. That truth can become so warped by the end that it’s barely recognisable and has little to do with what it was originally, but it’s there.

      When it comes to transforming and heightened senses and all that, I’m going to go with what I believe, and that is that the second you think you know what’s possible something will surprise you. Biology can be stupidly improbable sometimes. For example, there are species of fish that can just switch gender if they need to, literally reconstructing everything about their body. They can accomplish naturally in about 10 days what we’ve only just started doing reliable over months of various treatments. And the human body compared to a fish? Exponentially more complex. Every aspect of it does a hundred unlikely things an hour. So if a news story came out next week about some 80 year old mountain hermit that trained their body to turn into a goldfish, I honestly wouldn’t be surprised.

      Finally when it comes to thinking you’ve transformed, based on your other posts I’m going to go with probably not. These just sound like blackouts, the kind of thing you should probably see a doctor about if they continue. I do however sympathise with the feeling that opening your mouth will get you locked up. It’s a real concern, people are very keen on the whole “It’s for your own good” train of thought.
