Moira Rogers is having this contest for a Kindle and I have to chose which team I would want to be on. No, this isn’t a Team Edward or Team Jacob, but it does involve werewolves and vampires. Rogers has two novels coming out over the next couple weeks, Sanctuary Unbound and A Safe Harbor (7.13), and they are wondering who has the potential to be the awesomest – a badass vampire lumberjack or a devious werewolf bootlegger?
Honestly, I’m not sure if I would want to be around a drunk werewolf, I mean, they already have these violative natures due to their wolf half, do we really need to be mixing in alcohol as well? If woman are crazy during their full moon, I don’t think I would want to be around the werewolves. So I’m going to have to go with the vampire lumberjack. What about everyone else? What team would you be on and why?

I agree! Drunken wolves = trouble!
As has been mention numerous times in other blogs, the werewolves’ metabolisms would probably be too high for them to get very drunk, so there goes your argument :)
Go Team Werewolf Bootleggers!
The high metabolism only works if they don’t have a lot to drink in the first place. Even in all the books, a werewolf can still get drunk, it just takes a lot. Something a bootlegger would have access to. *grin*
Go Vampires – ian
Yes but no litters of 8!
So I know you’ve probably seen all those extensive charts as to exactly why a Werewolf Bootlegger is just plain better than a Vampire lumberjack. For that reason I’m not going to get into all of the obvious ways that the werewolf bootleggers are better, but I will say that it takes a lot to get a drunken werewolf. With their fast metabolisms it’s nearly impossible. Your argument is therefore not applicable. ;P
I agree Jennifer, they seem to be going back to that time and again. Let’s face it werewolf metabolism wins, no drunken werewolves here.
Not keen on drunken wolves.
Graceful and muscular vamp is my choice. Team Vampire Lumberjack!!!
Oh no, drunken and violent? No no. Werewolves are warm, fuzzy, caring and protective. Is an ice cold, blood drinking ghost white vamp better? I think not. Team Werewolf Supporter here! :-)
Jackie, Jackie-one word…splinters-OUCH!
I am team Werewolf Lumberjack. I know, when you get one of those killer splinters, I’ll send over some moonshine to numb the pain.
I’m for Team Vampire Lumberjack.
Vampires are just way cooler than werewolves and definitely not as hairy.
I absolutely vote for Team Lumberjack Vampire. He’s sexy, hunky, dangerous, mysterious and demanding. Yum!
Alcohol is like seasoning for a werewolf. Who wants a man as bland as a vampire’s skin? Go Team Werewolf Bootlegger!
Vampires may be cold, but at least I won’t have to worry about furballs. *grin*
I see awesomeness in both. Just because a werewolf’s bootlegging doesn’t mean he’s drinking it- it’s like how ‘good’ drug dealers don’t use their product. But I think vampire lumberjack is appealing because I find that while most vampires are written as good-looking, it almost always seems to be in a kind of feminine way. Delicate, beautiful. A more manly vampire is sorely needed.
I have to say I’m on Team Vampire Lumberjack because they’re still sexy in plaid!
He can’t get drunk though! A fast metabolism–which explains WHY he’s always so warm–would burn up the alcohol. Therefore, our darling werewolf bootlegger couldn’t be drunk.
Plus, I don’t know why you would want to have sex with a reanimated corpse. Ew!
GO TEAM WEREWOLF.
Everyone’s beating up on the drunken werewolf. Am I the only one who thinks a drunken werewolf would be hilarious? C’mon, not every drunk is a mean drunk. I’m imagining an adorably tipsy werewolf howling with laughter as he chases his own tail in a circle. And what’s not endearing about that?! :)
Team Werewolf Bootlegger, all the way!
I’m definitely a shifter girl…team werewolf bootlegger all the way!!!
TEAM WEREWOLF BOOTLEGGER for the WIN!!! But did you forget about the werewolf metabolism…? I doubt the werewolf hottie would even get that buzzed! And again I bring up the whole cold and um, DEAD thing that vampires have! ;)
Team Werewolf!!! Love those protective wolves
A good bootlegger wouldn’t drink up all his product…that’s just bad business. Team Werewolf Bootlegger!
Lily Ghates, I love your vision of the tipsy werewolf howling and chasing his tail.
I have to vote for the bootlegging werewolf, just because he is a bootlegger doesn’t mean he drinks nor does it mean he gets drunk if he drinks. I was a bartender and I never drank while I was working.
Besides I’ll take warm or hot over cold and dead anyday, and I’m not a Wolf for nothing got to cheer for my namesake.
Nope, definitely no alcohol to violent tendencies! Too scary for me :)
Way to go Team Vampire Lumberjack!!
yes!!!!! go Team Vampire Lumberjack!!!
Go Team Werewolf!
You go girl! Definitely Team Vampire Lumberjack!
I’m too cold for a vampire, I need a nice warm werewolf! And if I get really cold the free booze should warm me right up! Team Bootlegger Werewolf!
