Summary:
He loved the little human-cub, who smelled of food and did not recognize a wolf.

He only wanted to help.

Review:
This one really sunk it's teeth into me, dropping the reader right into the wolf's point-of-view and never letting go. It reminds me of something from the commentary track of Firefly (I know, random and probably horribly misremembered) where the actor who plays Jayne says the director told him Jayne sees himself as the hero of his story, as we all do. Well, in this the Wolf is the hero, and does what he thinks is best...though I doubt Granny or little red would agree.

It's chilling and immersive, and (paraphrased from one of the commenters) deliciously creepy. Like the best short fics, it seems so much larger than it's short word count.
