To the anon asking about shifting: I’m a shifter too, and I’m always aware of it. I don’t know where the idea that you’re not supposed to be aware of a shift even comes from? I’ve never heard that anywhere except in like… goofy werewolf movies or something. Some people might not be aware of their shifts, but it’s an individual thing in both cases.
I think the idea came from people confusing shifts with ‘switching’, which is only experienced by multiples.
