July's Theme Winner:
In the Valley of the DevilsThis is how we prepare for winter in werewolf country: by lighting all the torches on the ramparts around the encampment, because werewolves fear fire, and so that we can see them when they come skulking in the dead of night. Sometimes, beneath the flames, we see the werewolves in our midst, the ones standing beside us. This makes the winter longer, and darker.
This is how we prepare for winter in the forest outside the camp: by catching rabbits and deer and possum, and roasting them on spits on our little fires, which we keep small so that the village will not see the smoke. If they locate us, they will come with guns and silver shrapnel, and tear us to bloody bits.
By first frost, we have finished digging the ditch around us. It is filled with blades pointing up, and hemlock and mistletoe, which the werewolves avoid as a vampire avoids garlic. We toss in the cut branches, and also some parts of their brethren, a skull or tooth, or a hand, which was once a paw

Werewolf Tournament


**Update Sept. 14th 2014**
Get your nominations in! We don't have quite as many suggestions as last year, we need werewolves you want to see fight in this tournament! To clarify, we're looking for both Popular media werewolves (Werewolves you've seen or read about in movies, comics, books, TV shows, etc.) as well as werewolves born here on deviantart, werewolves made by deviants! Send a note to Kigai-Holt to suggest the werewolves you want to see fight.

YOU CAN SUGGEST AS MANY WEREWOLVES AS YOU'D LIKE! There's no limit, and we encourage you to give us a long list. Remember, the roster closes on September 19th! After that, if we haven't gotten enough suggestions, most of the chosen werewolves will be taken in at random from last year. So get those werewolves in!

**Update Sept. 2nd 2014**
As a reminder, nominations are currently being taken by Kigai-Holt, send a note to him with a list of who you'd like in the tournament!
You can nominate as many werewolves as you'd like!

You do not have to send a picture of a media werewolf, I can get that.

DeviantArt Werewolves must have an illustration of the nominated werewolf to be considered, but again, you can send in as many as you'd like!

Start getting your nominations in! We need a total of 64 werewolves by September 19th! The sooner you can get your nominations in, the sooner I can prep them for the tournament!

Welcome everyone to the preliminaries of WerewolvesAtHeart's 2nd Annual Werewolf Tournament!

This is your chance to help the werewolf community finally set things straight as to who is the champion of the moon, the leader of the lunacy, the best werewolf alive!

The Preliminaries

Here's how it works. The fights will begin on September 22nd, until September 19th, it is YOUR job to tell us who YOU want to see in this tournament!

To do this, send a note to Kigai-Holt and list off the werewolves you want to fight in the tournament!
They could be from comics, movies, tv shows, books, music videos, video games, you name it!
(In order to be considered for a spot however, there must be a photo or accurate illustration of the werewolf)
The more werewolves you suggest the better, we can get a list much more easily then!

Last year's semi finalists will not be considered for this tournament. This includes
Genn Greymane (Winner of 2013's tournament)
Harley Macfinn
Van Helsing
and Kigai Holt

Artist's Werewolves

Now hear this!
There will also be a select number of slots reserved for DeviantArt werewolves! That's right, werewolves created from artists may also join in the brawl! So send a separate list of werewolves born in dA that you want seen in the tournament!

Suggestions for werewolf fighters will be taken until September 19th at which point the 64 most popular choices will be placed in the brackets!

The Tournament!

When the tournament starts, YOU will be voting on randomly set 1-on-1 werewolf fights!

Remember, you'll be voting on who you think would win in a FIGHT, We're not going on looks ladies and gentlemen.

Each round of voting will last 5 days, and there will be 6 rounds! Our battle for the championship will be conducted on the last week of October, and our winner will be announced on Halloween!!!

REMEMBER: You can suggest as many as you'd like! Be sure to send us some large media werewolves AND some dA werewolves you'd like to see in the tournament!

Now get your champions ready, send Kigai-Holt a note and tell us who will fight in this Grand Lunar Brawl!

Having trouble thinking of werewolves you'd like to nominate? Take a peek at last year's roster!

I have a question, I am an author who will open for commissions soon, and I want to know what price I should charge for number of words/scenes/characters/ etc. If you don't want to post it here, feel free to send me a note.

Hi, I wrote a piece, "Midnight Swim," for the monthly challenge, but couldn't find the gallery to submit it to--it didn't show up on my end? Just the "Werewolf in Training" theme challenge from last month. Could you possibly move it there for me, or what should I do? Thank you!

Right over yonder: werewolvesatheart.deviantart.c…
Let me know if you can see that :)
rsbohn Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2014
I do see it there. The problem--I think--is that when I hit "Select Group" for the piece and select WerewolvesAtHeart, a list pops up of available galleries... And that one's not listed. I'm sorry, I'm just confused!
