Hello friends! I run an Etsy shop called Bright Strange Things where I sell a bunch of stuff, including Teen Wolf inspired jewelry stylings. Since it’s gift season, I thought I’d give you guys some presents: a 10% discount, and a giveaway for a $25 gift certificate!
Through December 17th, enter the coupon code FULLCOLDMOON at checkout, and you’ll get 10% off your total order of anything from my shop. Why? Because you’re awesome.
THE GIVEAWAY PRIZE
The winner of this giveaway will get a $25 discount code for my Etsy shop, which considering my prices will probably score you more than one item. Awwwww yiiissssss. You’ll have to pay for shipping when you order, so please bear that in mind. The code will be good for any merch in my shop, not just the Teen Wolf stuff, and only works in my specific shop, not all of Etsy.
THE GIVEAWAY RULES
Contest ends DECEMBER 17th, the night of the full moon, so you’ll have plenty of time to order some swag before you go for your naked moonlight werewolf run.
If you have any questions, feel free to drop me an ask.
Some new Teen Wolf jewelry designs! Aw yis!
Copper Emissary Necklace | The Alpha’s Revenge Necklace | Wolfsbane Bullet & Arrow Necklace | Copper Wolf & Nemeton Necklace | Copper Triskele Pendant | Howling Wolf Zipper Pull | Sterek Necklace | Three Arrow Bracelet
I’ve also got a couple of these Werewolf Hunter Necklaces back in stock if anybody was waiting for those. I only have two for now but if those sell I’ll probably make more.
Just posted a bunch of new items in my shop yesterday… here are a few:
These things and many more available at Bright Strange Things on Etsy. I’ve also got a discount code and a giveaway coming later today, stay tuned! :)
First time wearing agentotter’s tiny owls! Must get paid to buy more stuff OMG.
Still crying over how adorable this photo is tbh. Thank you!
My Christmas present to myself came in~ (and why yes I AM a dullahan. This is why I must emphasize the neck.)
Wow, I kid you not, the shipping was almost as fast as I shipped Sterek and I am so keen in awe of these beauts, perfect perfect perfection. They’re even better than I imagined, and I’d imagined they were pretty dang awesome… *^* Bought it from Bright Strange Things on etsy, fyi ♥
And I hope to have a bracelet to go along with these soon /CROSSES FINGERS. Have I Teen Wolf-ed hard enough yet??? NO??? /Teen Wolf-ing intensifies

- How was the world or universe created?
- What happens to sentient beings before they are born?

This is a great list of world building questions to start with. Answering those first three questions — or variations on them — are a great way to build a foundation of the various belief systems and cultural identities of your world, too. Since your characters typically won’t know things like how the universe was created or what happens after they die, they’ll probably have some pretty complex and ancient cultural or religious answers to those questions, and they might accept or reject the teachings of their native culture or religion on the matter.
As far as all the questions about magic and the supernatural, here are a few more:
The podcast Writing Excuses has a few great episodes on these subjects that I’d like to point to as resources, as well; you can find all of their podcasts tagged with “World Building” right here, but I’d also like to particularly point to episode 14, "Magic Systems and Their Rules," which has some fantastic discussion of why magic systems need clearly defined rules and how that helps your story.
