    I remember it pretty well, you basically said that in the tunnel there will be dark spots representing trials, yet the end is death, and that’s just the short version

    • Lupe says:

      Oh wait no, I said that life is like a tunnel because your going to always have trials in your life, but if you never give up eventually you will reach the end of the tunnel and finally find light aka peace.

    something I haven’t told many people is that everything I touch isn’t dark enough for me

  3. Lupe says:

    @Rogue: What do you mean by that? (Dark enough)

  4. Rogue says:

    it means that everything I touch just isn’t evil enough basically, I’ve tried almost everything, but it’s still not dark enough

  5. Lupe says:

    Oh haha I forgot to change the name back lol Blazing Coyote is a name I used a while back, and I was using it to respond to someone on a separate thread who responded to me under that name.

  6. Rogue says:

    I can’t really describe it

  7. Rogue says:

    no, I just hard to explain

    • Lupe says:

      Why shouldn’t you see a doctor? Like a psychologist? It may be hard for you to explain to me what you mean but it’s difficult trying to explain to people the purpose of doctors. THEY HELP PEOPLE FOR A LIVING. Trust me, if you go to a psychologist I’m sure they will help you.

  8. Rogue says:

    I just don’t feel like they can help me

  9. Rogue says:

    I don’t know, but I also have never trusted them enough to go to them

  10. Lupe says:

    1: Do you trust me?
    2: This feeling you feel, is it (a.) in accordance to you feeling as if everything around you needs to be more corrupt? Is that what your feeling?

    Or are you feeling (b.) like something is drawing you closer to darkness and it’s just that everything around you isn’t “dark enough” because some “nature” has your mindset on things already being corrupt, and yet because of that mindset and your not being used to it, that causes you to think it should be more corrupt to suit this supposed “nature” that was developed?

  11. Rogue says:

    I do trust you

    I would probably say that it’s because darkness is drawing closer to me, because after I knew about the mythical world for sure my life has been gradually getting more corrupt

    • Lupe says:

      Hm.. ok then. Again, I am not an expert at supernatural stuff, but I know some science. This deals heavily with your brain. What could be causing this? I want you to think to yourself about what it could be.

      There are 2 potential reasons. This “darkness” is just your brain trying to adapt to a world that could scare you or that your not used to.. or that maybe a demon or something is toying with you.

      Those are the only few potential reasons I might know about (as again I’m not an expert at supernatural stuff) but I find it quite odd though that this happened alongside you wanting to be a werewolf. You say both happened or began to occur at the same time, perhaps your “darkness” thing is directly or indirectly related to your desire to be a werewolf? Just a thought.

      I hope that this helped, and I apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

    The Anglo-Saxons are Germanic tribes that invaded Britain in the 5th Century. They practiced Polytheistic religion (multiple Gods). They were so successful, they took over the country by 450. England means “Land of the Angles.” Monks brought Christianity to England in 600 A.D. and all of England was Catholic by 700 A.D. King Alfred (849-899) instituted the Anglo-Saxon chronicle, a history of that age.

    The role of upper class women were care and ring givers, and peace makers through marriage. The lords have rings (ring-giver) to show the bond with their men. They believed that Valkyries (demigods) rode into battle with them and decided who would die. The only way to escape fate was often where fate saves a man if his courage is “good.” They used oral tradition, where they used rhyming, alliterative lines for easier memorization. Beowulf is written in Old English, a foreign language. A stereotype in that era was that the most important thing to all warriors was to win fame.
