Entitled 'Bloody Murder'. I realise it looks more like a raven but 'Bloody Unkindness' doesn't quite have the same ring...

And blurbage:
I present to you the Morvarg. Supernatural wolves of the spirit world: they patrol its shadowy borders, hunting down anything that tries to make it back to the land of the living. They may also act as guards and/or guides to select souls passing through to the afterworlds, which the spirit world is the gateway to. Occasionally they come to the mortal plane to drag away unfortunates whose time is deemed to have come and those who attempt to cheat death. Their bite causes lycanthropy so anyone bitten by one and not dragged off to their realm is doomed to die and rise again as a dire (undead) werewolf. The Morvarg are not truly undead themselves as they were never alive in the first place.

Generally they appear at first glance as large, black wolves with glowing green or red eyes, sometimes with a glowing aura like flames that never burn their host. Very occasionally one may be white. This appearance can change, with their skeleton seeming to show through as a pattern in their fur and, if really riled up, any resemblance to a living creature will vanish and what remains will be a very angry skeleton surrounded by smoke, burning inside with in inner balefire light that sears the soul. They are almost always accompanied by unnatural crows which are an extension of their being, scouting afar for them.

I think you were going for "Bloody Conspiracy" since a group of ravens is called a conspiracy (ravens are a lot more sinister and frightening in my opinion and in a group...well you know for sure something's dying or dead then since they only come together when death is involved and food is scarce not to mention during such times they've even been known to hunt the living). Makes it a lot creepier in my opinion :)

Good point well made :)  I think if I'd done this but without the snarly wolfy beasts (or maybe if they'd been looking calmer and less immediately bitey) then that would be the perfect title.  As this piece currently is, with the bloody maws 'Murder' seemed a more appropriate title as there's not the subtlety that would do 'Conspiracy' justice.  Heh, maybe I should revisit this theme... ;)

Hm... The wolves do seem rather murderous so I can see that. Haha I look forward to a revisit :)
