    Slaughter Dew

    Slaughter Dew by Andromeda311

    Summary: β€œThe first time it happens, he is fourteen. Sitting at the Gryffindor table, Peter thinks of murder.” Peter and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Oneshot, 1,507 Words.

    Why You Should Care: When I read this fic, it gave me chills. While I’m nearly certain it’s not the canon reason for Peter’s betrayal, it’s so well done that I was left with shivers and the question what if? It’s a realistic portrayal of the disorder, and Peter’s gradual shift in loyalty, with his constant justification, is both sad and haunting.

    Why You Might Not Care: This is dark, and more than a little creepy; it’s even harder to take when you think of the people who really deal with this in their everyday lives. Don’t read it if you can’t handle it.

      That was intense. I love those stories that could be canon, although you are sure they aren’t what JKR imagined.

      Wow, amazing. I was reading this right after the Chinese New Year and the emphasis on numbers really struck a chord there. “Four” sounds like “death” in Chinese and is the unlucky number, “Eight” sounds like “to get rich” and is therefore the chosen number for the Olympics, and so on.

      Sorry for the useless trivia. πŸ˜‰ Awesome fic!
