First time and wondering where are the werewolves? Gavin's the werewolf here, but his grandparents don't know. Back to the town next week.

I mean...it's not like there's any real danger to getting him a wolfwear cap - you can always just say it's made of some special material.

Isn't there? That's what Gavin's beginning to think. ;)

Until he asks where it came from. Until someone else asks where it came from. Until someone feels it. "Special materials" indeed, but what happens when it's examined?

Also don't forget those three coys are still looking for him and Archibald could easily get caught up in that.

I didn’t mean to delete your comment, LegendaryLycanthrope. Complete accident. I’m on my phone which I don’t normally use for CF and I thought I was deleting my response.

The long and short of what I wanted to say is the fabric of WolfWear is not like any other. It’s designed to withstand the throes of lycanthropy and has perspiration resistance. Even if this sounds like others, it’s noticeably different.

Hey Peter, I know it's awful close to another Wednesday to be asking this, but do 'wolf things have magic-like properties? I don't mean the Dark Arts, I mean that the 'wolves are effectively immortal. This means that they can spend centuries perfecting something, to the point that (from an outside perspective), it'd seem like magic.

There are artists and singers out there who are so masterful at their craft that what they produce seems almost magical. Does this make sense?

I would agree entirely with what you're saying. Besides the logic and sense in it, their skills and abilities and crafts would have arisen because of the use of magic, a la spells are in place that cause all things of werewolfery.

Hoo boy... Now what? He could get him a cap, but as others have said "What happens if someone examines it?" And then there is the fact that Archibald has seen Gav in wolf form and while he doesn't know it's him, giving him clothing that is "suspiciously stretchy" may just clue him in that Gav is the wolf.

Exactly! And I wouldn't say "Gav" around the lil' blonde 'wolf... ;)

Noted, but that makes me want to say it even more now XD. Might be an interesting way for Gavin to accidentally reveal he's a werewolf. He teases Archibald in hopes that it will cause him to leave Gavin alone, but instead it makes Archibald upset and he blurts out Gav to Gavin's annoyance. Realizing Archibald has found a way to upset Gavin and to get back at him, he keeps going on making Gavin angrier until he finally snaps and transforms in anger. Although this may be too simple. It would be more interesting to see what you have in mind.

Solution:

Head to thrift store
Go to clothing aisle
Find MLB* cap from a team that finishes in the bottom of rankings
Pay 25 cents
Cheerfully present it to Archibald

*If MLB cap not available, find a company picnic souvenir cap from 3 years ago

Well, Grandma would eventually get to see the cap, or might even be present when Archibald got it, so she'd know it's not the same type. Also, Archibald's father would never let him have a MLB cap... not if he doesn't know teams and has a 'loser' to boot. And a random company would raise an eyebrow as well.

The Grandparents really have Gavin between a rock and a hard place. I am curious to see how things go after Gavin turns 16.

Yeah, though I have a feeling they're going to find out about the werewolf thing--even, possibly, Wolverton, before too long. Those three coys have probably traced Gavin by now and if he does bring home another wolfy item his grandmother is likely to want to know where it came from.

I dread the thought Gavin's grandparents find out. They would probably lock him in a silver-plated cage in the basement!

And all the while repeating other poisonous platitudes like "This is for your own good!"

Oh wait, I think they've said that a few times already....

Gavin IS sixteen. He'd be able to be on his own at 18.

And it's so wonderful to see/hear you all concerned for him. :)

In most states he'd be a legal adult anyway. If things get too hairy, though, he may end up facing an early outing, which would complicate things a lot.

I just double checked. Where Wolverton is located it's 18. :)

In most states, the age of majority is 18 - Nebraska and Alabama are 19 and Mississippi is 21.
