Home territory: Nottinghamshire, England for most of
my life, now London, England.
Dream territory: Heavily wooded mountain root. The
actual country, I couldn't tell you. This will remain literally a dream
territory, though, as tiger and girl have to co-exist, and the girl
in me could never cope with being that isolated.
Human hobbies/interests: Drawing, animal behaviour,
travelling around visiting people (when I can afford it), rollerblading,
nature religions, this our darling interweb.
Favorite were-movie: Have to admitt I've never seen

Vast, Treble Charger, blah, blah, etc.
Favorite mode of attack: If you mean in visualisations,
ah, the wonder of camoflage. Get as close as possible before striking.
Favorite prey: In visualisations again, deer. No question.
My dislikes: Insomnia, corned beef, and the human capacity
My thoughts towards vampires: *Waves to the few she
knows* Nothing to say, really.
Favorite mythical animal/creature: Pegasus, angels.
Favorite non-mythical animal/creature: Tiger. Big shock
Personal philosophy: While ever there's someone better
than you, you're not good enough.
Personal therianthropy:That's always a hard one really.

I don't feel I have the soul of a tiger, or that my soul is part human,
part tiger. I feel like I actually have both, whole and complete, but
