Prompt: I got greedy with this one and decided to claim two prompts and combine them into one story: Story prompt #5, from Shadowycat. Set during POA. Severus spots Remus wandering the corridors late at night. Immediately suspicious, he pursues him to try to discover what he's up to. They get into an argument and somehow manage to trigger a hidden door which sends them somewhere deep within the castle where their magic seems useless to get them out, forcing them to work together… and Story prompt #15, from Hogwartshoney. There is something terrifying about the way Lupin prowls in the days before the full moon. Arousing too, Severus admits, but only to himself, desperately arousing. The moon affects humans and lycans in different ways, it's true, and even Muggles tend to be more erratic in their movements, more on edge. The moon's effect on Lupin is something quite different, and Severus shudders despite himself; despite having faced Dark Lords and monster snakes and the hatred of most of the known Wizarding world, this fear, this anticipation of almost-danger - this is something he can find nowhere else.
