_ _ _

When we say ‘gone feral’ folks think we mean the beast has taken over, but we’re not wolves, we’ve never been wolves, no matter what the curse makes it look like. Ferals are as human as they’ve ever been, they’ve just run away from themselves.

And that’s what humans are good at, isn’t it? Being able to look beyond what is and see what could be, what we want to be. To lose yourself in the belief that a borrowed form is as good as a borrowed soul… and run.

They aren’t feral, not really, they just want to believe.
