As tonight is a full moon it seems like a very good time to wrap up our werewolf themed round and let the zombies in, but first - thank you to everyone who voted in our Readers' Choice polls and now we bring you the final part of our Readers' Choice Adventure...

Just in time for our werewolf round this weekend's moon is going to be a "Super" full moon--appearing the biggest and brightest it has in 20 years.

So if you're looking for a time to let your inner wolf out--this weekend is perfect!

Thanks to [ profile] armistice_day for this head's up!!
So we have finally slipped through the chilly fingers of our second round and emerged in the dark, moonlight woods of Round Three. By overwhelmingly popular demand our monster is werewolves, and we've already got a toothsome beginning selection of poetry and art ready to satisfy your slavering maws. We've also got a spine-chilling surprise lined up as well...

To help us change our skins, what's your favorite werewolf story, movie, comic or song? Do you adore the classic wolfman, the old traditional shape-changer, or the angsty accursed heart throb?

I admit it's cheesy, but whenever I write werewolf fiction, I always end up with "Of Wolf and Man" by Metallica stuck in my head. I can't help it! A friend of mine also sent me this amazing werewolf song in German--but then I lost my copy when my MP3 player died. Maybe someday I'll remember the title and find it again.

Bright is the moon high in starlight
Chill in the air cold as steel tonight
We shift
Call of the wild
Fear in your eyes
It's later than you realized

(shape shift) Nose to the wind
(shape shift) Feeling I've been
(move swift) All senses clean
(earth's gift) Back to the meaning, Back to the meaning of...Life
(guitar solo)
I feel a change
Back to a better day
(shape shift)
Hair stands on the back of my neck
(shape shift)
In wildness is the preservation of the world

So seek the wolf in thyself

-Of Wolf and Man, Metallica
