Equal Time For Werewolves
Recently I posted an article over at our sister site vampires.com concerning the ways in which a person can become a vampire. It seems only fair, then, that I tackle the subject here of how one can become a werewolf. Ready? Let’s do this!
First off, you can make a deal with the devil or some arch-demon. The evil entity will then give you a girdle made out of wolf’s skin, along with a special ointment that you have to rub all over your skin once you ditch your clothes. This ointment will contain drugs which seep into the skin, causing hallucinations. Donning the wolf’s pelt, you may, if you want it badly enough, believe yourself transformed into a werewolf. However, the transformation will only be hallucinatory. You will not actually transform into another form. Sorry, but this isn’t possible. Considering the pact with the dark lord will cost you your soul anyway, I’d recommend you forego this route. For an imaginary transformation, it isn’t worth the trade-off.
As an alternate means, you can seek out a werewolf and get it to bite you. That’s how it works in the movies. There are a couple of big obstacles to overcome, though. For one thing, finding a movie werewolf outside of a movie will be challenging at best. Also, you’re taking a gamble that you’ll survive your mauling to contract the curse of lycanthropy for yourself. More than likely, the werewolf will just kill you. If it really existed, which it doesn’t.
I will remove my tongue from my cheek for a moment to admit that I believe werewolves might really exist, after all. But I don’t think they’re anything like the ones in the movies. If they’re really out there, they are, I am convinced, supernatural entities that never transform either into or from human form. And I won’t say that the creation of Tulpas in lupine form is impossible, either. But I am convinced that real werewolves, werewolves as we think of werewolves, if they’re real, are spiritual rather than physical beings.
