Please welcome Grace Duncan with
a Forbes Mates story
In June of 2016, the human world and the wolf world found themselves equally rocked. Many of the wolves didn’t know it yet--wouldn’t for another year or so. Instead, they went about their lives as most do, working, playing on the full moon, spending time with their families.
Then, about a year later, a pair of destined mates found themselves without a home--not entirely because of their parents. The parents for one wanted nothing to do with him. But the other, his mother was worried about the treatment they’d get from the one person they should have been able to count on above all others--their alpha.
The boys struggle to find a home, eventually making their way to the wolf headquarters just outside of Denver, Colorado. Alpha Prime Noah Pearce isn’t too happy with the treatment the boys have gotten and calls a meeting of all the alphas nationwide.
And now they do know what happened in June of 2016. They learn about how a pair of their own wolves--destined mates--were among those killed in the Pulse Shooting. Wolves don’t need guns. They had no reason to want them; they have claws and the ability to fight that’s much deadlier than even a single bullet--at lease for a single target and who wants to do more than that? Certainly not the wolves. Sure, there are a few that carry them for a reason--like Chad and Jamie who work often in the human world. But it’s rare and it simply wouldn’t occur to them to want or need an assault rifle capable of taking out a large number of people at one time.
They’re far from innocent about violence. Most know quite well what happens every day in the streets. But a lot of them celebrate the fact that they don’t have to end up in those situations. They heal from bullet wounds. They don’t even go to hospitals in the first place. So, there’s a separation for them from these realities. When it was so bad, even the wolves were killed? Maybe arguing over who someone’s mate is is a much smaller issue than they thought.

Miguel Garcia and Luis Rodriguez have been best friends all their lives. For the last year, they’ve been hiding the fact that they’re also destined mates. When Luis’s family finds out, they kick him out. Miguel’s family would keep them… except their alpha has been known to be downright violent against gay wolves.
With the help of Miguel’s mother, they set out to find a pack that will accept them. They run into more that a few obstacles before they end up in Denver, at the national wolf headquarters, meeting the alpha prime. They’re stunned to find, not only offers to join more than one pack, but that their struggle can shine light on a bigger problem–and make things better for LGBT wolves across the country.
