I looked into Erised once, when I was young enough not to fear my dreams.
I saw myself as an adult, with friends and a job. Looking happy. Looking normal.
But underneath was another vision. I saw myself running in the forest, my face covered in blood. As I watched I could feel my muscles twitching, wanting to Change even three weeks from full moon. Wanting, just once, to escape the shack and obey my nature.
Every day since then I've felt the presence of the fracture in my mind, and every time I Change it gets harder to return.
