Interview with Luna Lupine
By: Kevin 'Myth Master' Adams

What has two thumbs and is in a particularly stabby mood today?

THIS GUY!

Fear not! I shall give Luna a chance to weave her tale before I potentially dispatch her!

Without further ado, please welcome my newest guest, Luna Lupine

Myth Master: Let’s start with the basics, tell us about yourself.

Luna Lupine:Luna Lupine is wily 30 years old and lives in a quiet area in rural Transylvania (so rural I have to have Satellite to get TV and internet, but I do have running water). I'm an active member of my P.A.C.K (People Against Cruel Killings) and P.E.T.A (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) which are both to protect animals, but in the same breath I'm sad to say that I am a failed vegan several times over, especially during a full moon the girls and I enjoy some fresh meat.

Myth Master: I thought P.E.T.A. meant People Eating Tasty Animals. Hmm. Boy, have I been doing that wrong.

Luna Lupine: Cute.

Myth Master: Hobbies?

Luna Lupine: Another group you may hear me talk about in the book review column is my Lady's Book Group, they're a howl! We gather weekly greet the moon and then talk about what we're reading, or they and convince someone else to read the book they're reading. I have a lot of free time, and I read all of the time.

Normally it's two novels a month, and I pick which one is the best and write up a little blurb for the online magazine. I guess you can say that I'm a writer, though I don't think I am, I don't write stories just articles. I tried to start a werewolf themed webzine, but that was too much work for my lazy butt. Which leads to The World of Myth, I'm happy right where I am at, since I get to rant about the different moons each month and talk about great books.

During the day, I pay the bills by working as a Forest Ranger, and the nights belongs to me and my books. I am the third incarnation of Luna Lupine (think Doctor Who), before my transformation into her I was bitten by a wolf while I was trying to save it (think Spider–man).

Myth Master: Do you feel animals have a soul?

Luna Lupine:Sure. I think that souls is the negative electromagnetic energy that keeps us alive. Like a battery holds a charge a body holds the same charge. I read a great piece years ago that a few scientists gathered to prove that a soul exists. The collected multiple patents that were actively dying, and they ran all sorts of tests and there were no correlation, all but one. It did not matter if they were young or old, male or female, skinny or heavy they all lost 21 grams (or 1/20 of a pound). While it has and is continued to be debated, I'd like to agree with the researchers.

Myth Master: What is one of your favorite childhood memories?

Luna Lupine: When I was young, my older brother took me to a faux wedding for two comic book characters. While it did not have a happy ending to the story it was a happy memory. We rode a public bus to where it was being held and I had gotten sick. The adults had gotten me cleaned up and we zipped through the building where the faux wedding was being held and my brother would not let me see what was going on and quickly we boarded another bus and back home. It wasn't until I was better and asked why we jetted through the place like we did that he told me what was happening at the time. He sacrificed his good time and something that he had looked forward to as well for me. That just makes me happy inside.

Myth Master: What skill would you most like to learn?

Luna Lupine: I would love to know the science behind why with a full moon it causes a pressure change, which makes things to act and look differently. I have a friend who works in a hospital and she swears that when a full moon is out, all of the crazies get crazier. With a full moon changes the waves in an ocean, or that old myth that a normal person changes into a werewolf… Silly, huh? Werewolves. LOL!

Myth Master: What would you want written on your tombstone?

Luna Lupine: No tombstone needed. When I eventually die, cremate me and spread my ashes in the forest. That's all I need is to comeback as a zombie or something… You feel me on that right?

Myth Master: What’s wrong with zombies?

Luna Lupine: Dated one once. Serious personal hygiene issues there, let me tell you!

Myth Master: What is the best and worst thing you have ever read?

Luna Lupine: About 6 years ago, a friend let me borrow Supergods : What Masked Vigilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Smallville Can Teach Us about Being Human. What a big pile of crap! It's written by this guy named Grant Morrison and the friend who loaned it to me said he way like a Rock Star in the literary world. It made NO sense at all! NONE! I read online that he would get high af and not sleep for days and then as he enters delirium he begins to write, he thinks it makes his writings holy or something. In fact, I may write an entire review on it, just for you dear Myth Master.

The best book I have ever read is hands down Stephen King's Pet Cemetery! As you can tell, I have a fondness for animals, and when I first saw the movie in the early 90s it stole my imagination. I remember my puppy died, and my brother had to bury her in the backyard and I recall secretly hoping to myself that she'd come back from the dead. Several years later, I read the book when I was a teen and, wow! The movie didn't have beans on the novel! It lead me into the world of Stephen King, I've read most of his older stuff. They are making a remake of the movie and I pray it doesn't suck.

Myth Master: Anyways, I think I will let you back out into the wild because you remind me of my cat Mr. whiskers.

He’s over here on a shelf somewhere…

Ah! here he is!

See?

Luna Lupine: Dude, that’s a mummified cat.

Myth Master: Silence! Mr. Whiskers is alive, I can prove it.

* Meow *

Luna Lupine: You’re literally making a fake cat noise. Really?

Myth Master: Blasphemy! Mr. Whiskers will not tolerate your disrespect!

BE GONE!
