What Would Happen if Werewolves Were Discovered?

March 2nd, 2012 § 69


There is a question I often ask authors when I am doing interviews, a question that has nothing to do with their book, but one that’s fun to ask in spite of that (cliché interviews are SO boring).  Every author has given me a different, yet fantastic, answer so far, and I love hearing every opinion on it – including yours. Which is why it’s now your turn Dear Readers, your turn to let your voice be heard! As enjoyable as it is to ask authors questions, I love hearing from you guys too, so here’s a question for you – If werewolves were discovered to exist today, do you think our society would accept them or try to destroy them?

Here are a few past answers from a couple of authors I have interviewed:

“Our society has enough trouble dealing with the relatively minor differences between human beings. If a werewolf turned up on Main Street, you can bet the silver bullets would be flying.” – Lisa Hendrix, author of The Immortal Brotherhood series

“I think the first reaction would be to destroy them. Esp. down south. I can see a series of books that explores racism this way, in a lot similar to the way True Blood uses Vampires to talk about homosexuality.” – Paul Jessup, author of Werewolves

“Depends on how many people they’re eating.” – S. Andrew Swann, author of The Wolfbreed series

Now it’s your turn, what do you think? If werewolves were discovered to exist today, do you think our society would accept them or try to destroy them?

Personally, I feel that we would destroy them, or at least try to. As Lisa said, we have a hard enough time dealing with minor differences, I can’t imagine how bad it would be if something as big as actual horror movie werewolves existed.

    There would be three classes sort of. Those that are like Isabella Swan in Twilight, except in love with werewolves. Thats the first class. The other class would be those that would be yelling and beating a zombie to death with baseball bats in the Apacolypse, except with silver bullets and werewolves. And finally, the middle class. They can stand the werewolves, they don’t love werewolves, but they don’t hate them. They just feel uncomftrable. Depending on which type is the most common would determine the outcome.

    i think we will try to kill them even though they may try to help us with our socitey ,but we would not care becaues a war against the land will start anyway. we like to go to war when there is no need because we do not trust anyone

    i fell in love at “Depends on how many people they’re eating.”

    In every story there is a good guy, and a bad guy. So in this case people might think their the bad guys, and we’re the good guys. Well that’s a completely different case. In this case its between all werewolves. Not between werewolves and humans. So in every story there is a hero and a villain. Well people might not see that we all have differences and alikeness. But not all werewolves are bad. Some are good but on the other hand some are bad. But hopefully we can destroy bad ones, and ONLY bad ones.

  5. i’m just wanted to say this, silver doesn’t affect werewolves, neither does holy water or crosses. that is a myth. saying that myth is about the same as saying werewolves are monsters controlled by bloodlust. the way that myth came up is when people thought werewolves where “monsters” or “demons”. silver, holy water and crosses are used to get rid of demons. werewolves are not monsters nor demons. just wanted to say that to all the people who believe that myth.

  6. what would happen if werewolves where discovered….. let me just say this, the person who let us be discovered would be…. dead…. because so many werewolves would be so very angry at that person, and after that people would start becoming “werewolf hunters” and to the people that weren’t werewolves they would see it as basically…. start killing all werewolves (or just normal people like them) and our kind would go extinct.

    Everyone here has a good point. I personally would actually be really happy if it went public that we exist. Sure, we needed to go into hiding once for our own protection, but now the secrets just hurt both species and tear families and friendships apart. I say all supernatural creatures need to go public. We need to show humans that while we’re different, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. And honestly, how much worse could it be for us than it has been for gay people? I mean, sure, things have been pretty bad for them but the thing is, we have an advantage LGBTQ people never did: the pack bond. It’s our instinct to look out for those we care about and to protect them. Together, we can use that to get through anything that comes our way. Besides, Matthew 19:26 – With God, all things are possible. God will see to it, I can tell you from experience, that no matter how hopeless things will seem at first, we WILL be okay, and, hey, maybe we can even reign in a new age of peace between arcane creatures and humans.

      Warewolfs are creatures of power and are beautiful and should be fearless and proud of the mark one day I WILL BE ONE!! And I will embrace it not as a curse but as the gift it is

    I’m willing to go for it and reveal myself to the world. I hate lying, especially to those I love, and it’s made worse by the fact that I’ve developed pack instincts toward many of my human friends. I don’t want to lie to my pack, and McKinnley, I’m sure you know how I feel. I want to reveal myself, but I won’t unless I know the rest of you are behind me. Whether or not we go public, we all need to be united on this. Please reply to this comment if you agree, everyone.
