Title: The Scariest Halloween
Summary: The first time Peter sees Moony.
The first time that Peter sees Moony is in October, and the moon is round and yellow over the mountaintops. Peter is small and trembling, unfamiliar whiskers twitching and small, funny ears flattened back on his head. He isn’t used to being a rat yet. Moony is giant, all teeth and claws and glowing golden eyes. The werewolf bursts out of the door, like a monster in a fairytale. Peter can’t think of this thing as Remus. The powerful jaws snap shut right before his face. The werewolf’s breath smells like rancid death. It’s the scariest Halloween of Peter’s life.
Current Mood: accomplished
Moony nearly had a rat burger.
It always amazed me that Peter was able to keep from being eaten or stepped on. The others are just so much bigger that he would be very easy to misplace or forget.
I can't believe there weren't any near accidents back when they first started out. Peter was so tiny, and wolves eat things like him. Not to mention how sharp deer hooves are! All that weight on one tiny, pointed hoof? It hurts like hell to have uyour foot stepped on by one. Peter is one damned lucky rat!
