The Grass Touches My Forelegs

the grass touches my forelegs making me think of bugs bumping against my skin. the thistles catapult themselves against my hind legs making me flinch and shy away. i hear a grumbling noise and i flatten myself in the grass with my ears pressed against my skull. my breathing becomes shallow and my eyes search the horizon carefully.
i see a bird chirping in a tree. my eyes and my ears point towards it and i lower myself in preparation to pounce.
i leap at it my paws before me. it escapes in a flurry of feathers and i snarl in frustration. i sink back to the ground with nothing present in my mind but the thought of a lost meal.
the bird alights in a different tree and titters at me. i flatten my ears and glower at it but i leave it be. i’m aware that i won’t catch it.
i hear yells and shouts and i drop to the ground fearing someone’s seen me. but the shouts continue uninfluenced by me. i hop up and bolt from the field. the human part of me begins to take over without meaning to but i fight it trying to feel animal for as long as possible.
i hear a turkey hen complaining and my ears and nose are on sharp alert. i crawl towards the noise slowly and quietly as i can but she must hear me and she dashes for shelter under the thick brush. i growl but it’s okay. i can find food later.
a big stench with big round wheels rolls towards me. i disappear into the trees and wait for the noisy thing to leave. it leaves and i am safe now. i dash to the big square shelter and i am scared of the big straight walls around me for a long time…
but after a while, I don’t feel so animal, and I think that it is beautiful to be two species at once.

How to survive Anime North 09
When I went to my first Anime North 7 years ago, I was floored by how big it was and how overwhelming everything seemed to be. At that time, I could really have used a guide, but none seemed to exist. So if this is your first time or your 3rd time, I hope you can learn something new and get the most out of Canada’s largest anime convention. Preparation So you’ve bought your tickets, booked your hotel, and arranged transportation to and from the Congress Centre. Now all you have to do is count down the days right? Not quite. There are a couple of other things you should prepare for. Money When you’re in the Dealer’s Ro

Mother
My mother is a falling star. Leaving all that is golden about her in her trail until she is nothing but blackness, or maybe a grey rock that crashes through a window and into someone's loft. She was the bubbling youth, all the freshness of spring and attractiveness of summer molded into a human being. At least that's how I remember her. It's not how my siblings will. They might treasure memories of dinners and bed-time stories the way I treasure the memory of girl's night out with the daughter in tow. I always found falling stars sad. Bleeding out all their glitter on the way down to rock hard ground. Going from something I always imagined

Methods to Madness: Villains
Methods to Madness Character Creation Insight Villains Villains, bad guys, antagonists…call them what you will, but every story has them. In a fit of possible madness, I’ve decided to jot down my usual process for creating my villains for a tale. Mind you, I don’t consider myself as a shining example of writing prowess, but we’re only looking at my thinking here. I’m not expecting to make people go “This guy is totally on to something here!” or anything, just an explanation on my usual creative choices with what I consider one of the best parts in a story. Now, let’s get to some bad guys! First, l

If I already uploaded this, tell me and I'll take it down and give you 'thank you' kisses. lawl.

Mmm, yup. Been a little while since I posted therianthropy related writing, so here goes.
This was actually written a little ways back during my little identity crisis, and I just wanted to write about my animal side without suggesting a species. <3
