First on the shiny new Q&A! I asked this on the last thread right before it had to be locked...

I was musing recently when I thought of something...

You know how when you don't wear earrings for a long time, your piercing closes? Well, when Leah turned into a wolf, I imagine that every time she lost control - which seems to be rather often for the young ones - wouldn't the earrings pop out? If that happened to me, I would give up wearing jewelry at all. Her piercing would have closed quite quickly because of the wolf healing. And she can't pierce her ears again until she's stopped phasing. How long until Leah can wear earrings again?

I don't think it would be possible. Stopping the phasing only allows them to age. I believe that the accelerated healing component doesn't go away- so she'd still be unable to have pierced ears.

What's to stop her from using the ones that clip on, though? :)

Have you ever worn clip-ons? I cant stand them. They're very uncomfortable.

I can't say that I have. I'm not female. :)

That doesn't really make a difference. I have many male cousins who have been forced to wear clip-on earrings. :D

"Forced" being the operative word? :)

But no, I have not. Have never had the thought to do so.

I hope forced is the operative word.

We're getting way off-topic now, new question...
If Rachel and Rebecca are genetically identical twins, Paul imprinted on Rachel, and imprinting is based on genetics, then does that mean he imprinted on Rebecca as well?

^^That's really interesting, I never even thought of that. I don't think he would because of the individuality that the twins gained over the years.

I would think that the earrings would stay in place. Because the object would prevent the healing of that cartalidge. The ears to a dog or cat aren't very thick, in fact they're usually thinner than humans. While Leah would be much larger than a normal dog/wolf, I can't see her ears getting thick enough to completely lose the earring stud, especially being the smallest of the "mature" wolves.

:p Oh, and I wish my piercings would close because darn it I've been without earrings for eight years and it still hasn't happened!
