random tidbit from worldbuilding this morning

I’ve been working on designing some alien species for this hard sci fi I’ve got planned for after nano. (I’m working on this instead of my nano project to A) keep myself distracted enough I don’t jump the gun and start my nano early and B) make my nano jealous so I will really hit the ground running with it when I *can* start it.)

Anyway, so I’m designing these creatures right? And I’m thinking, okay, for plot reasons they basically supplant humans, but also can nearly blend in with us, so humanoid. Pursuit predator style mechanics of course. Hm, probably a bit sturdier, too–they need to survive like, catastrophic levels of awful (plot reasons!); they probably heal faster, too. Oh, and maybe they have claws and fangs, those are fun and advantageous! What about night vision, they should probably have good night vision, maybe better sense of smell……..

Werewolves. I’m designing space werewolves. Dear lord, self.

  1. Bahaha, er . . . whoops? Space werewolves! \o/ (Totally get you on the ‘make my project jealous’ front . . . I’m currently ignoring my planned – HA! – NaNo project(s) in hopes that when I turn to them next week they’ll cooperate.)

    1. Right? I was all pumped for my nano project when I first came up with it, but since then this sci-fi thing has knocked me on my ass…. :/ But it’s way too soon for me to start working on it. I’m going to need probably at least a MONTH more of worldbuilding put into it before I’m ready to write any of it. Gah this thing is going to be big.
