Started out as just a talk about werewolves and petting gags.
1XXX A.D.: You’ve been living in this boring paranoid town for a while and aside from all the noise every full moon night you haven’t really come across any sign of danger. Well there are some poisonous things out there but it’s not like they’re forcing themselves into your mouth.
While you have broken just about every piece of advice the townspeople have given you breaking the law is something you haven’t done but that noise that keeps you up has been going on for way too many years in this otherwise boring town. Why not just check it out once and for all?
2XXX A.D.: During a sleepover with your best friend you accidentally pet them and discovered monsters are real. What to do with this new information?
Some scarce details ahead.
Cursed: Whether from the direct involvement of spirits possibly generations ago or from someone they peeved trying a ritual they didn’t really know that much about these people usually have the hardest time with their monstrous natures.
Communers: Whether power seekers or new age druids trying to get in touch with their totem they literally asked for their monstrous natures. That doesn’t make it easy street though.
Naturals: They’ve had their whole lives to get used to their monstrous natures and their families are usually encouraging.
The list above is about different sources of monsters. Should “infected” be listed as its own thing?
Well lets get on to a list of reaction types.
Refuser: For even the most benign monster types these are ticking time bombs.
Mixer: Blending into society perfectly while still using their monstrous natures. They might even be using their monstrous natures TO blend in.
Indulgers: Embracing their monstrous natures so much that they come off as weirdoes or just creepy but still staying socially acceptable enough for the law.
Power Embracers: Egotistical braggarts that usually consider themselves above everyone else. They also never remember (and some don’t even look up) what their weaknesses are.
Wild Embracers: Whether they think they see some kind of duty to the planet or just a different lifestyle these try to discard their human selves. At least they know how not to get caught.
I’m actually not sure what kind of direction to have the story head in.
At least I’m a decent coder.
