Okay so.

As some/many of you know, I'm currently working on a novel project involving men kissing and skinwalkers.  Unrelated events, but still. For some reason, I am absolutely fascinated with the whole skinwalker mythos. Partially because it's like the dark side of animal transfigurations. And partially because I love legends and shit like this. This isn't your typical "Man turns to wolf" story, this is evil. This is the stuff Native Americans don't talk about. The Fight Club of the supernatural world.

So of course, I think it's the neatest thing ever. And naturally the amount of information on the subject is minimal, because, according to what information there is, talking about skinwalkers, or yee naaldlooshii ("with it, he goes on all fours") in the Navajo tradition*, is extremely taboo. You don't talk about it. Especially to outsiders.

The book I do have on it, is Hunt for the Skinwalker: Science Confronts the Unexplained at a Remote Ranch in Utah. Stupidly long title, but, basically, it details the experiences of a rancher family in the Utinah Basin region of Utah.

SO. What does all this have to do with my new theory?

So that's what I did with my afternoon.
