Wow! Just...wow! Chilling. You almost made me feel sympathy for Greyback. I really liked the part about the dreams and how he started to keep track of them. They way his parents looked at him w/ fear and disgust; one could almost justify what he turned into. I had to remind myself about Bill Weasley to keep from feeling sorry for Greyback ;)Very nicely done.

That is fantastic, very good. If you hadn't told me a little about it I wouldn't have know until the very end who it was talking about. It is a very interesting story.

What a horrible, shuddering inversion. I was quite sure you were discussing Remus. The intelligence, the academic interest in dark creatures, even so many of the mannerisms. The scholarly way in which the young child documents the event in order to understand it, seemed very reminescent of Professor Lupin. And the love which the child is surrounded with and seems to share with his parents also pointed me in that direction.

One imagines Fenrir being dark from the beginning, growing up with abuse and unkindness, but the genius of this piece if the way you use the assumption that this is Remus to emphasise your point. Love that lacked wisdom created Greyback. That and Fenrir's own choices. It shows the pinpoint on which the balance between Remus and Fenrir rests.

As I said, shudderingly good.

(Of course, this is my reading of your story. You may have intended it entirely differently. If so, it only speaks to the quality and literariness of the piece!)

Wonderfully creepy.

Ooh. I so knew who it was once the whole hatred and curses thing started...One wonders how Fenrir got to be as malicious as he did, but it's not all bad parenting--he's just like that, which is shown in this story as well as his family history.

Awesome! I like it.
