    @ foREVerTegan:D
    I dunno if you are still looking for advice on this or not! I kinda doubt it, but in case you are, um... Something I would consider doing if I were you is looking to see if there's anything interesting that wolves do when selecting mates or during mating season or when mating, etc. that I could work into the story somehow.
    Something else that came to mind just now was that maybe a ritual they could do would be something to symbolize an eternal bond. Wolves are thought to mate for life, so you could take that and apply that to werewolves. Since rituals are almost always built on some sort of symbolism you could think of things they could do or say that somehow symbolize that idea of bonding with another for life (and maybe beyond life if you've got spiritual werewolves!)
    Just some thoughts! Sorry nobody responded to your post in a more timely fashion though!
    Funnily enough, I was hoping to talk werewolves with someone! I am working on a story involving werewolves at the moment, and I have a plan for a part that involves one or both of the werewolf characters losing control and changing (I write wolves that change in circumstances besides just the full moon.) It's important that this happen because up until that happens they don't know they can change any other time besides the full moon.

    Problem is...I don't know what exactly might set them off. I have some vague ideas, but I was hoping to talk it out with someone. So like any ideas what could set off a werewolf in human form and make them lose control and start wolfing out?

    @ This.Useless.Heart.
    Do you want it to be something that wolfs them out a lot or just a few times?
    I have so many story ideas that I want to do, but I feel that when I start writing them, I'll start hating the story themselves. It happened with my nanowrimo novel, which sucks because I absolutely love the idea of the novel.

    @ aubs
    More like just one time, y'know for like one scene. The overall point is the characters learning that stimuli other than the moon can bring on changes. I had thought something violent could happen to trigger them, but I was wondering if there were other ways I could make them change. Or if I did resort to violence, I wasn't sure what the scenario should be. I thought brainstorming or talking it out with somebody might help.

    @this.useless.heart
    Thank you for your help I have been stuck on the part of my story for awhile so I haven't really been writing for it but what you suggested as helped :)

    Also what could make them angry in human form could be something like one threating a pack member it even their mate if they have one by if not then a pack member might be the way to go

    Hmm, so it'll have to be something that doesn't happen too often. Maybe it could be different for every person? Like let's say someone loses their mom, and every time someone mentions that person's mom, they transform? Like the traumatic event causes them to become unstable enough to transform?

    Thanks to everyone who helped with my last question! Sorry, I just kinda disappeared from the conversation; I, uh, tend to do that on here unfortunately. Facepalm
    I have another question for a different series though! I am planning to injure a character in a way that doesn't hurt him so bad as to be instantly life-threatening (and preferably not something that will cripple him too much either), but that will later become infected and become a serious harm. For extra info, it is during a zombie apocalypse (think very recent post-apocalypse type world), and he is travelling on foot with three others through mostly urban environments.
    I need help brainstorming ideas for how to injure him! Thanks in advance for helping me hurt an innocent character!! XD

    You could have him get scratched by a Zombie, infecting him. Most do not consider that a means of infection, but since it would b a biological thing that normally causes zombies, like bacteria, or a virus, you could use that to infect him or her.
