Art rec
Well, kind of a rec... I can't say I like it so much as I think it's quite a true picture of the character. Don't link if you have a weak stomach.

This picture of Fenrir Greyback by vikingcarrot is really, really disturbing... which is what a picture of Fenrir Greyback should be. This is very much Fenrir as he is implied to be in canon--a particularly vicious child killer--but can't very well be shown as in mass market books because it's too graphic.

YES! This is what a werewolf is!

Not just Fenrir. Remus is not the cuddly wolfie Fanon loves to depict him as...

Well, untransformed, he's pretty cuddly. But yeah--the R/T trope that drives me berserk is "cute little multicolored werewolf pups." BZUH? The corresponding R/S one that's a BZUH factor is "the puppies." Sirius might be a cute dog but Remus in canine form is a werewolf. You know. A monster?

I cannot, for the life of me, stand fics or fanart where Remus is a nice dog that happens to look a lot like a Wolf.

I think most of the time, "the puppies" and "multicolored werewolf cups" thing is a joke. It's when it is serious that bugs me.

Remus doesn't even turn into a Wolf. He turns into a monster that is Wolflike in looks and habits, but far more dangerous.

Yes, we can - and should - and do - still love and fangirl him. But he's not Beethoven on Full Moons.

Sorry, forgot to say "transformed" Remus! :-) Untransformed, he's a dear. With this lovely understated British humour... But as he says himself, transformed he is a monster. A WEREwolf, not a wolf!
