I been away a while. COVID did more damage than I knew, and then my computer failed me. When I got back, Fandom had made some serious changes. The jury's still out and it took some finagling to get the look of the wiki back. Seems there's been changes in the infobox structures too, leaving some oddities on some pages. I'll get there ... or someone will.
The Policy & Guideline page had become unwielding and difficult to navigate, so I broke out all of the key elements to individual pages and simplified expectations and requirements. The Guidelines page is now simply that, a list of expected behaviors, in other words, it's for how you behave. The new and improved Manual of Style is for how you create. I hope these changes improve your experience here.
Please take the time to visit these pages and see how they can help you.
Updates continue as the personal recovery of Connie's Wolves unfolds, each dealing with the sudden change in their own unique way, as Malaya continues to struggle with the official formation of Walters Pack.
The "Work of Art" at the top of the right column of the Main Page has been updated to a sketch of Malaya that the author had started but ended up not using, so it was offered as an incentive to vote for the comic at Top Web Comics.
Two updates, one on the 22nd and another on the 23rd, both updates taking place in Charlene's NOLA stylin' apartment. The noisy crow, her familiar Alphonsus, follows her around as she readies herself for bed. Charlene apparently understands him as the two hold a conversation about the upcoming camping trip. Al seems excited at the prospect, Charlene, not so much.
I've tried to match the general theme of the website for the comic. I've noticed that the background color changes with each update, but there is a general trend to stay in the purple/violet range. I've used the colors that sort of match but still allow users to see and read the content. Comment here on this posting by clicking on the speech bubble in the upper right corner of this post.
Page 558 was released today, um, well, yesterday now. Seems there's a big witch camping thing up on Lake Superior that Eli and Mal want Charlene to go to with Marisa, to see what they can find out about Lucas and the Yardley Pack. Charlene is reluctant.
In other news, Shawn reveals the name of Tom's daughter. Ladies and gentlemen, please meet Ella Yardley! (And the crowd goes wild!)
As always, check the history of HB:P&G to see what's new and what's updated.
Found and imported the template Reflist as well as an updated version of Documentation used by templates. Reflist allows the user to split the references list into two or three columns so that long reference lists don't drag on for ever. Myk Streja (wall) 00:56, September 11, 2020 (UTC)
Shawn has treated us to back-to-back updates of our favorite webcomic, Tuesday September 8 &Wednesday September 9. Malaya is struggling to get the paperwork done for her soon-to-be-born pack. Werewolf politics aren't making it easy for her. The counter claim being filed by Thomas Yardley for Yardley Pack (yep, got names now) isn't helping any. Malaya's frustration is palpable.
The opening pages of Chapter 11 of How to be a Werewolf have been released with promises of more to come. The first page was posted September 1 with the next page following the very next day.
As of September 3, the comic was rated 18th on Top Web Comics. Let's see if we can keep it up by voting here or clicking on the TWC Top Comics banner on the righthand sidebar of the comic's webpage.
Shawn Lenore has released the cover for the soon-to-be-released Chapter 11. She writes that she likes what she has so far for the chapter and is anticipating publishing the first page next week. She claims she spent way too much time on the cover, but she loves how it came out. The chapter title is a line from Sylvia Plath's The Rival. The cover can be seen at How to be a Werewolf or right here below the news releases.
Looking forward to the start of a new chapter!

Shawn Lenore announces the end of Chapter 10 along with the end of the current story arc … and the beginning of Chapter 11 with a new story arc. As yet, she hasn't announced the exact direction the arc is taking, but theories abound. Shawn mentioned in her latest blog that she is planning to possibly have a give-away to celebrate the end of Chapter 10. Details to follow.
