Allison Moon, Lunatic Fringe Part 4: Shawn Pigott And tonight, when the moon is full, she will leave behind her human form to creep silently along silver-touched paths, a beast capable of poetry. Links to previous posts in the series can be found at the end of this piece. I liked knowing where I stood with Archer. The idea of linking the threat of a woman at the peak of her cycle with that of a werewolf's monthly rage comes inevitably, and it's no surprise that so many of our modern female werewolves are angry creatures, ready to use their sudden strength and power to strike back at those who have hurt and humiliated them in the past. These women would be shamed and often killed, in their human form, driving home the message that women who stray from their given fate will be found out and punished.
It's hardly surprising that today's writers are claiming the female werewolf as the essence of power, strong, uninhibited, and with a rare gift.
Can you spot the three naked women hiding in this painting of a wolf?
They have body hair and they don't, on the whole, seek to remove it apart from in Mattel's Monster High seriesbut that's another story However, every so often something gives you a moment of pause. Vampires and zombies are cold creatures, forever apart from humanity. The ending is very rushed, bringing the disparate storylines together in a hurried denouement that does not completely make sense and seems to contradict some things that have come before. They have one thing in common, strength and power, traditionally male attributes, which are being taken by our wolf girls and used for their own purposes.
