A very simple but rather... gory question...

There's some detail I need to flesh out in a story where my main character is a werewolf. Basically, I just need to know how living flesh - human especially - would feel if you just chomped a hunk of it. How does the skin tear, and does the meat come away like in layers, as it does when I eat cooked chicken, or in a more messy hunk? How would the meat feel in the mouth? How about the skin, what textures/tastes/ect would that have being churned around in one's mouth?

Keep in mind here I'm actually talking about from a human pov - Jaron doesn't know he's a werewolf yet, and when in danger sometimes acts on instincts that are rather... strange. But that means I'm not talking about a mouth full of super-sharp teeth and an extended jaw, I'm talking about just a human mouth that's a bit better at chomping on a living, struggling creature than it probably should be.

I hope you guys can help me, but if you can, I really, really don't want to know how you know these things. =P

(Btw, if anyone happens to be bored or curious enough to want to read the first chapter, it is posted here: liminalhorizons)

When Google fails, I come here. :)

I'm looking for information on what a wedding ceremony in the 18th century would entail. The people are upper class, and it's taking place in the West Indies (This is for a PotC story I'm struggling with).

Google gave me a lot of links about women's rights, adultery, booking a genuine 18th century hotel for a 18th-century themed wedding, etc. What I'm actually looking for is what would have happened. Church or at home? Reception or no reception? Honeymoon or no honeymoon? What time of the day? Would the father have walked his daughter down the aisle, or is that a modern thing? Would there be a best man? Witnesses for signing a marriage contract? WOULD there be a contract?

I'd very much appreciate any websites you could point me at, or any information you could otherwise provide. Thanks in advance!
