Zombie Outbreak in Texas!!!

Hail Survivors!

I recently received a very grave -no pun intended- warning from Survivor Miles who I believe may be located in or near Texas. Survivor Miles recently survived a vicious zombie attack, armed with only his wits and hedge clippers. His parents unfortunately were not so lucky.

Shapeshifters

Oh those very, very scary therianthropes! Should they have their own category? After all, werewolves technically are shape shifters as are draconians, druids and some accomplished witches or sorcerers as well. Granted nobody else transforms into inanimate objects like tables and helicopters and flowers and spoons like a shifter. Those shiftless shifters can’t even pick a state of matter!  So why should we bother?

In a word: QUEST. On the site. The mysterious commenter. Every few months a mysterious post appears by a certain commenter named QUEST describing acts of incredible mayhem and a sign left in the wake of it that reads,  “Shifterz were here.”

Judging by the signs, there may be more shape-shifters than every before. They could be all around you right now. Or possibly you ARE one… do you find it hard to maintain a molecular structure? Then vote for the shifters!

    Hi everyone.
    (correction cause my last post of this came out in the wrong way. sorry. Sometimes my first impressions don’t go to well.)
    My name is Flame. And I am a rare type of shifter as my uncle calls us, but by your defanition of a shifter i
    would see you don’t know about our spieces of shifter.
    And actually the note above does not suprise me much.
    Alot of shifters like us have gone Darkashift due to humans and demons coming after us so long. And that is not including the destruction of our habitats by humans as well.

  • Devorah

    Hey flame I’m Devorah one of the many werewolves on the site if you don’t mind me asking what kind of shifter are you?

  • Flame

    Well, I am wat my type of shifter is not seen much anymore. We are sort of inbetween Therians and shifters and humans. It’s sort of complecated to put into words, but we are at the cross roads of Therian and shifters. We are right next to Therians on the scale of humans to animal. We usually prefer is to be called warriors, but we are usually called Sercashifts. But, i haven’t been able to shift yet. Not fully anyways.
    Sercashifts are actually more of fighters. Though for thousands of years Sercashifts were known to protect humans from harm.
    But we aren’t as many as we where back then. You see during the old world witch trials we were labeled as witches ect ect. most became very hostil to humans. That’s basically what started the Darkashift problem.

    • Devorah

      Way to put it in words for having a hard time explaining you did very good 🙂

    • Flame

      Thanks, in our years I’m only about 6 months old but i did do the best i could. But i forgot the biggest part…
      The biggest aspact about Sercashifts being different from Therians that I could think of would be Bird type Sercashifts. They are pretty big…image a 5 hawk.
      But most Sercashifts do live in groups. I’m not to sure about if Therians do.

      ( hate my phone right now…)

  • Flame

    Thanks Devorah,
    Though some of my mistakes are usually because of stress.

    • Devorah

      That’s understandable I go Ice skating every Tuesday to get off the weeks stress maybe you should do something you love for awhile so your not as stressed 🙂 hope it helps

      • Flame

        I paint. draw. and Sketch. but that doesn’t help me with this kind of stress. My Uncle sent me up to Ky for a while because I got bit.
        He said it would be good for me to get away for a while and see the forest that is in Ky.
        That was a dang joke, Millitary, and Area-51 crawling all over the place and demons with attitudes is what i got.
        That’s half the reason I’m stressed…

  • Flame

    I hate storms…
    Anyone have any ideas why someone would get migrain headaches every time a storm come over their house?
    I have a pretty good hunch though…

  • Flame

    I dislike The 4th of July…
    To much Firfeworks to close to dry srubary here…
    To make long story short…their went the neiborhood…
    They burnt down half of my Pack( group, clan, which ever you wish to call it. I will explain if asked…) home.

  • Flame

    I dislike The 4th of July…
    To much Fireworks to close to dry srubary here…

    They burnt down half of my Pack( group, clan, which ever you wish to call it. I will explain if asked…) home.

  • Devorah1

    Oh poor flame yo ok

  • Flame

    Yes, maybe a few minor burns but i’m fine. You see I didn’t expect the humans to be shooting their fireworks that close to what little forest we have left here.
    Now, their went most of our home and territory…
    And most of the food…gone…
    You see Sacrashifts usually live in and work with a group if that’s what you want to call it. It all depends what types of Sacrashifts are in it. Mine is a combination of all types so… we call ours a clan.
    and the territory thing…we are asign ourselfs territorys of our areas to protect, and a small area to live in. Now with most of ours gone. We are heading for a down hill battle.
    And this is also part of the reason their is not may Sacrashifts anymore…habitat destruction.

    • Hail Flame,

      Sorry to hear about the fireworks but congratulations on being completely ungoogleable, the first ungoogleable entity on the site in a long time. Perfect for a shifter with shifty spelling.

      That said, I’m a little unclear. What forms does your kind take exactly and when and how?

      Thanks for keeping on,

      Seth

      • Flame

        Sorry, about the spelling. I’m still getting use to the translation from Our wrighting to english. Still might switch it back and forth by accadent though. It is hard to tell how to spell it from the old manuscripts.

        Sacrashifts are sort of complecated to put into
        words, but we are at the cross roads of Therian and shifters, and humans.
        We are right next to Therians on the scale of humans to
        animal.
        We can transform into animals just like Therians. But we are different from Therians in the sense that, any flying type, bird type, and some small animal Sacrashifts are much bigger than normal animals.
        Sacrashifts change using the consept of animal spirits. ( you can ask more about this later if you want)
        Sacrashifts are also different in the sense that the leader of a group of Sacrashift has a certain power in them than other Sacrashifts. Like fire abilities ect ect…
        Scarashifts also known as protectors. We mainly exist to protect humans and to keep balance.
        And to be honest I am not suprised google had nothing on sacrashifts. We are really rare to see anymore.

        Their is actually alot of different types of shifters.
        I am adopted. my uncle is a Bioshift. and my dad is actually a Guardian.
        But still yet i am still odd even for a Sacrashift.

        Because as in when we shift. Mostly anytime we wish when we are an adult or are old enough to relize we and and how to control it.
        Most Sacrashifts are born as aniamals and then after about 6 days or more in human time, then we change into human infants and stay in human form till we are at least 1 month old in our time. then we are able to shift back and forth as we please.
        Me on the other hand…I have problems with mine. I am about 6 months old in our years. And i can’t shift, all i can shift is my tail and ears. and that would normally kill a Shifter of any kind.

        But in the artical above. The Shifterz as the flag states. They most likely are Darkashifts. Shifters aren’t harmful to humans usually. They usually play small tricks but nothing majior. Besides most shifters are not able to turn into all kinds of things. Only high level ele-shifts can.

        If you have any questions about Guardians, Bioshifts, Darkashifts or anything. Just ask… just say what you want to know mainly.

        I will try to give you the best explaination i can, besides in our years i am only 6 months old.

      • Flame

        Seth i might has some information for you. It’s on the Wampus Beast for you.
        I think I incountered one while on my weekend vacation.
        It took me 3 weeks to get over it.

  • Flame

    sorry, i sorta guess i just gave you a more complicated explaination…much more than you asked for. Sorry i tent to get that way and go all scientific sometimes. I study the old manusicripts around here to much. I’ll just highlight the main things.

    Sacrashifts are sorda of a mix between humans, and a Therians, and shifters. They are more leaniant to shifters and humans though. But very close to humans on the evolutionary scale.
    Human once had powers like all of us. They where able to take their animal spirit and force it out basically. and transform themselfs into a animal form.
    Humans actually evolved down from us in not so many words.

    When we transform isn’t really an issue. We can transform when we want. Just depends on if you know how and your age in our years.
    Small animal type spirits like roosters, sparrows, Bats and the occaional Mouse. They are much bigger when they transform.
    But we have to be careful. Transforming half way or trying to turn into something similair to a werewolf like form, can hurt or even kill us.
    Me I’m just odd, in our time, 1 month of age is about when we can transform. Me I am 6 months in our time and I can’t shift to my animal form.
    Plus to add to that I can transform half way. As far as I get is usually my ears and tail. And it doesn’t hurt me or anything.
    But, my uncle says I will fully transform when my spirit is ready.

  • Flame

    I just found out that I am going out to the country, Hollar, or which ever you prefure to call it. That means I am going to be where their is more forest than you can shake a Tail at.

  • Marney

    Does anyone at all know anything on werefelines? I have many feline traits yet a big pack mentality. I know for a long while I thought I was a werewolf but some years ago after I changed I remember being well dark furred and hunted alone and pulled down a deer in a more feline like fashion. I also deeply connect to Bast the Egyption feline Goddess. I just need some kind of advise as there is no info here about werefelines. if I am one I can give a lot of info.

    • The Reaper

      Hail Marney, I have information on werefelines depending on the type of cat werefelines are relatively solitary creatures which explains why you hunt alone, if they do hunt in packs like other therians it is to take down larger game such as say… An elephant or any other large creatures. As for the connection to the cat goddess I suggest looking under the demigod section. If you have more info I personally would love to hear it. Thank you ~ The Reaper

    • Hail Marney,

      I have been wanting to add a page about werecats for a long time but I have never felt like I have had enough information about them. Small sample size is always the main challenge in supernatural survivology. Do you have any info that might help me?

      Werecats are much more rare than werewolves but I don’t know why. Is it because they are less likely to transmit their werecattiness on to those they bite? Is it even contagious? What ways can werecattiness be transmitted?

      Keep on keeping on.

      Seth

      • Marney

        I am not sure why cats are less then wolves. in fiction at least it is much harder to give someone else what you have unlike wolves. So that may be a RL case to. Also werecats I guess are much more aloof and hidden. Exept maybe for lions. unlike wolves most cats do NOT form packs or Prides the only exeption I’d say would be lions. cats usualy like normal cats, Hunt and do things more alone then with someone else. Think of a normal cat it may work the same way. thats what I do know so far.

      • Raidho

        the reason they are rarely seen is because most are in hiding and most are not in America , they mainly reside in India , Asia and a few in Hungary

        they dont bite and turn people, no were-animal does

  • marney

    well i always feel big cat like More Panther like. I do connect to Bast more then others. Usualy solitary but also pack minded.

  • DarkOne

    Hello…. Hey any other shapeshifters out there?
    I’m a werewolf, I think, but I’m starting to suspect otherwise.
    I want to know more about Therians and Shapeshifters.
    Things like:
    •Can Therians only transform into their totem animals?
    •How do you learn to shift/control shifts? (I can very subtly change my features to a wolf or fox, on astral and mental planes, I’ve only done a wolf fully on astral, and I can subtly become invisible)
    •How are new ones created or whatever?

  • Fenrir Ulfangr

    I’m shapeshifter-ish, I can be a dragon, a wolf, a Human, and others its fun.

  • Marney

    ok I am well a Raven of Odin. But am seeking information. I want to know more about his ravens and what they can do. I was sent out for my first night my first task and was with 3 other battle ravens. But we were attacked by 3 beings. One raven was shot down and we scattered he was male i was not as big as the others but big enough. We scattered I could not see this all happened while airborn. if anyone can help please reply..

  • Cyborg man

    My little brother says if he pokesa animal he will git it’s he will have its power and it works I seen him do it is he a spices of shapeshifter?

  • Marney

    ok I need alot of help. I had the weirdest dream i ever had in my life. IF it was a dream. I may have been turned into a being that I never expected. Anyway I was taken to an underground cave or cavern or whatever. (it was beautiful though) and I wake up to see a female next to me. In front There looks to be a Queen or something. She was a snake being like the female next to me. I started saying I would be more devoted just give me a chance. She said i would need to be if I want to be fully accepted. So she said very well. She then told this female to *lock* with me so i can become of their breed. it had the name silver and then i think i heard tongue. She then bit me while coiling around me. She then bit me again at the small of my back. I then later started to change as she told me to breath and not to fight. I was then fully changed into a big king cobra or something. Then they fed me rats… I am not sure what this all means. It changed my race all together or most of what i was… eather it was just a dream or I am changed forever…

  • Marney

    I believe i found what i am at last. Basically a Wereraven of sorts.. I do not yet know much as I am still learning but my form is a large sized Raven.

  • Marney

    I take back my Wereraven post. I did some meditation more then once to find what i am. I did discover I am a Werewolf I have a White Wolf kind of form. Now to just accept what i am thats the hard part.

  • Catveena

    shapeshifters never met one that I know of as long as there nice I’m good lol
    Can shapeshifters work together to become something enormous like Idk a building or Leviathan or Godzilla ? Lol

    • Zyboragon

      As I recall, most shapeshifters are loners, and depending on how powerful they are, they can accomplish turning into the forms you specified solo.
      Taking on such a form is an easy way to attract attention though.

  • Catveena

    *smiles at Mr Zyboragon* hey that’s really awesome and cool thanks.* mumbles quietly * I wonder if one could hire one.

  • Marney

    gods I am not even sure WHY i felt I was a Werewolf. I have recently shifted about 3 weeks ago and had a feline form. I look much like an Abyssinian cat. The more I researched the More I found I am a Nekomata. we are *shapeshifting* cats among other abilities. I guess in ways we are like Kitsune. I have been pretty confident in what I am and feel very happy. I have leaned tords many species in my search. And finally now I know. (and yes I have a forked tail)

  • Marney

    Seth you should have something for Werecats. I am a Werecat and knew for a while now and no longer have the dought and confusion. Anyway Werewolves have their own so why not Werecats? I am technically a Wereleopard. (Resembling the Persian Leopard) But I hope you can work on Werecats as Werewolves are just too popular and well known. Yes we are a bit more aloof as most of us are more solitary. but we live in a human world. I am still learning more about what i am. Sometimes Shifting willingly is not easy i am still practicing. We may not have packs ect like Werewolves but they have their place. If you can’t thats ok Just wondering if it can be done and what is known.
