“Never Moon A Werewolf”
Loki, Ice Moon Survivor of the Month
Wise words indeed, from the latest Survivor of the one Month, one quite new to SOS, Loki the Wild Wolf. After all, what does happen if you moon a werewolf? Worse, what if you moon a werewolf on a full moon? Does it trigger an unwanted transformation either way? We don’t know for sure, but I intend to take Loki’s advice, and not try it.
(Although I can’t guarantee it won’t happen by accident if there’s a leprechaun around. You know how they are.)
Loki has contributed this advice and much more since her arrival on the site some two months ago. Like many, she came here hoping for confirmation of her lycanthropic status. You could understand her confusion, since some named Loki are chaotic Norse demigods, like Half Breed. (Fun fact: Half Breed can trace his heritage back to Loki.)
But it quickly became clear that Loki is likely named in the tradition of Norse demigods because of one particular Norse demigod – Fenrir, the wolf who had werewolf children by a witch. A really tall one. So is Loki very tall in human form? We don’t know.
We do know that she is 100% Wild Werewolf and as a result she has a witch friend. I’m not sure why wild-weres and witches make such good friends. Maybe it has something to do with the “Ws” or maybe it’s the fact that witches and wild-weres both do some powerful things with plants. One thing we know for sure though, Loki’s friend has turned at least one unsuspecting being into a toad already – so don’t get on her bad side.
(I still would like to know who that toad really is, Loki! I think you should get to the bottom of it with your friend.)
But we do know that Loki’s lycanthropy gene was likely passed down by her grandfather. Loki’s mysterious Opa is blind, but Loki began to notice that he could see the moon. Which led her to the amazing discovery that he was a werewolf who had been blinded during a fight in wolf form and consequently now in human form could only see by moonlight. A very important safety point here for werewolves. As you probably know, with some species of werewolf, the eyes are the only part doesn’t change. In some species this means a human with wolf eyes. In others, it means a wolf with human eyes. Point is, if you are a werewolf and you don’t want to end up like Loki’s Opa, you need to protect your eyes at all times. Most other injuries will heal between transformations, but not injuries to the eyes. An excellent reminder from Loki and her grandfather.
(Will we ever know the details of the fight where her Opa lost his sight? Maybe he will tell us someday. Could be very important to Loki’s survival and that of others.)
(Also makes me wonder, would a magic moonlight lamp help Loki’s Opa? I’ll have to ask that Blue Werewolf someday if they ever stop in again. They have a way of collecting blue moonlight and using it for cool stuff.)
But if she doesn’t ask her friend to turn you into a toad, Loki will be a great ally on the site. Ask LycanProtector. When he was having a problem with a time traveler killing him in his past, Loki came with him through the portal to fight. Since LycanProtector is thankfully still with us, we can assume that they won. For now, anyway!
(Who was this angry Time Traveler anyway? Why did they want to kill LycanP? I hope somebody tells in the comments below.)
Loki is quick to say “HI!” or ask a much-appreciated good question. Just don’t call her a “him” *oops* and don’t leave her alone with your cinnamon apple muffins! So feel free to say “HI” back to Loki or ask her a good question of your own. She won’t bite. Far from it. In fact she will remind you about the no-bite policy – also much appreciated. Thanks Loki! You are an exemplary Survivor of the Month.
Long may you keep on keeping on!
