Never Piss Off The Wolf

woodswerewolfToday readers, I’ll be telling you an old werewolf tale that comes from France, a land full of werewolf stories. This story is about how you never mess with a werewolf because, well, payback is a bitch.

This story is about a nobleman from Brittany named Bisclavret. Bisclavret would disappear into the forest for three days every week and never told anyone why. His nosey wife begged and begged for him to tell her where he went and what he did. Bisclavret finally confessed to her that he was a werewolf and he went into the woods to hunt, also that he left his clothes at the edge of the forest. Why would that matter? Well, without his clothes he couldn’t turn back into human form. Bad move telling his wife for she was unfaithful and had a secret lover who was a local knight. With this newfound info, the wife and her lover followed Bisclavret to the woods, and after he removed his clothes and transformed into wolf form, they stole them, trapping him in wolf form.  When Bisclavret didn’t show for so long the two-timing wife lied and told everyone that he must have been killed in the woods. She then married her lover and they took over Bisclavret lands. Lame.

A while after, the king (who was Bisclavret’s friend) and his group were hunting in the woods, when they and the hunting dogs cornered a wolf. The wolf was of course the trapped Bisclavret, who recognized his royal friend and ran up to the king and shocked everyone by kissing the king’s feet. The king then ordered away his dogs and took the kind wolf home as a pet. The wolf, Bisclavret, was so sweet and gentle that he became a quick favorite at court. One day Bisclavret’s wife’s new husband, the treacherous knight, came to court and the wolf attacked him. A wise man in court said this wasn’t right and that there must be a reason the wolf attacked the knight. Shortly after, the king visited Bisclavret’s wife, taking along wolf Bisclavret. The wife greeted the king sweetly but then the wolf attacked her and bit off her nose. Ouch! This raised even more questions so the king ordered the wife and knight to be questioned about this aka they were tortured into confessing. The wife finally admitted to what they did and showed everyone Bisclavret’s clothes. The clothes were then given to the wolf, who transformed back into human form privately. Once again human, the king restored to Bisclavret his lands and exiled the cheating wife and dishonorable knight. If that wasn’t bad enough, all the children that the wife and knight had after, were born without noses.

Like I said, payback is a bitch so don’t piss off any werewolves… especially werewolves with friends in high places.

do the silver bulits really actually work? i doubt it, but maybe you know. i have a sort of a passion for wolves/werewolves and would like to know more about them. thank you, and please let me know when u have answer.

There are a lot of different theories and myths and we can’t really say what it true and what isn’t.

Here is what we do know…
Some people believe that silver is the earthly symbol for the moon and only a part of the moon can kill a werewolf. So only silver, which has connections to the moon like a were does, can kill it.

Back in the day silver bullets or any weapon of silver was thought to be effective against werewolves (also some vampires). The idea was that the only thing that could kill a werewolf while he was in wolf form was a weapon of silver. The werewolf’s vulnerability to silver actually dates back to the legend of the Beast of Gévaudan, in which a gigantic wolf is killed by a person wielding a gun loaded with silver bullets.
There are other folk tales as well that involve werewolves and other beasties being taken down with silver too.

We can’t know for sure if silver does work since every culture tends to have it’s own myths and beliefs.

if werewolves showed themselves, wilddeath, since most humans are such jerks they’ll start gettin the wrong ideas and try to kill off all the werewolves. so the werewolves hide in safty to protect themselves from extinction, then they will be a myth. isn’t it enough they have to deal with the vampires? they protect humans while the vampires try to feed on us! werewolves, for now, already have big matters on there hands, don’t try pushing it.

I say that is a ture story and never ever piss off a werewolf. In my theory, I say that this story is so mind-thrilling delicious, & brilliant! btw, if there are any real werewolves out there, just keep it a secret cause for right now, you don’t need to show it. We will be ready when the human are ready for us to show ourselves to them. But that time is not now.

This is for wilddeath. I am a werewolf going off on a limb to explain to you why we hide. Angel is correct in saying that humans will try to kill us off and here is why. Man fear what he does not understand and werewolves are most definatly feared. And i understand why. If I was still human I would be afraid too. Actually I would be terrified. Back in the day when humans all over the world were burning and haning human in accusation of being werewolves, they actually killed many werewolves in the process. We were pushed to the brink of extintion but being as hardy as we are we survived. Barely. As for Angels question about silver. Moonlight makes a good statment and to be truthful I do not know why silver kills us it just does. It only affects us though if you hit vital spots in our body as well as if you were to kill any animal but it has to first pass through skin. You would have to either be shoot from far away or be one damned lucky human to get that far.

I am human and I do not fear what I do not know or understand. I instead go out and try to find as much honest information as I can on topics I am not familiar with. I end up reading stories like this one, but it leaves me with more questions then answers. Yes humans are monsters, at least that’s my opinion, but not all. Yes, a rather large group of us react with violence when faced with that of which we are unfamiliar, but again, not all. I have said what I wanted. Continue with your daily lives.

My Friend said that he had and run-in with a “Werewolf” (I think he just trying to impress me, but whatever.) and now i think i’m going to kill him. No joke!
