were oh where do werewolves sleep…
Do werewolves sleep, and if they do sleep where and how do they rest? This needs to be covered.
Speaking in terms of the weighted one, the human living with the curse, his sleeping accommodations could be anywhere, the same as any human. The weighted one (werewolf in human form) will sleep as any other human does, but it is more likely that all weighted (cursed) people will sleep in much of the similar positions. The most popular positions for weighted humans (cursed) to sleep are:
- On the side. A human living as a werewolf will most likely choose to sleep on his or her side with the feet pulled slightly toward the chest. Position will often change throughout the night but most likely the weighted one will wake up in this position.
- On the back, hands or arms crossed OR on top of the chest. Many will say this is a “vampire” sleeping position which may be true, but this is also true for werewolves. The human living with the curse will sleep flat on the back with the hands or arms placed more frequently on top of the chest or somewhere on top of the body. This position comforts the weighted human much the same way as sleeping on the side.
- The third and least popular for the werewolf sleeping position is sleeping on the stomach. Werewolves are rarely caught off guard, this position is not efficient for the werewolf if he needs to wake up quickly, or is startled during the night.
Sleeping positions may differ depending on what is happening in the weighted persons life, different life events call for different attitudes. How the cursed sleeps often depends on the life events of the werewolf.
Now we all ask do werewolves in werewolf form sleep?
If one to ask me if werewolves in werewolf form sleep I would always say no. Werewolves do not sleep. But you will find upon asking other werewolves that many will say they do sleep. This is frequently a misunderstanding on the behalf of the human part of the werewolf that believes he really “took a nap” when in reality the werewolf in werewolf form was fully awake and conscience. This is often a sign of lose of control.
* readers, a quick note: I refer to werewolves in human form as the “weighted ones.” These are the humans who live with the curse of the werewolf but are still in human form. I find, and many readers find, that referring to the humans living with weight of the werewolf as “cursed” is demeaning and unpleasant to the weighted ones. This may seem confusing, just remember, if you are a human living with the “curse,” then you are a weighted one. If you are a weighted one who has transformed into a werewolf then I refer to them (you) simply as “werewolves” or human in werewolf form.
