Remus: *stumbles into the Potter’s house, body torn and bleeding*
James: *gapes* R-Remus?
Remus: *hears the distant sound of voices* *eyes flutter open*
James: *muffled voice seeps in from the kitchen* -so bad Lils… I don’t know what to do.
Lily: Do you think this has something to do with the missions Albus assigned him?
James: I can’t think of any other reason why he’d miss a moon… his transformations are so much harder without us. He won’t tell me what’s happening. He won’t tell anyone… Merlin… I’ve never seen him like this before.
James: Whatever Albus has him doing… I think Moons is in way over his head.
Remus: *cringes, glancing down at the bandages around his chest* *stares as blood starts seeping through* Fuck… *slowly lifts himself off of the bed, trembling* *stumbles into the bathroom*
James: Remus? Are you up?
Remus: *weakly* I’m up, just going to take a bath… *turns the tap on and watches the steam fill the room, drowning out James’ response*
Remus: *vision blurs as a cloud of red slowly pours out into the water*
Remus: *quietly* Wh-who’s there?
Remus: *waits a moment, his eyes on the door* James?
Remus: *slowly lies back, the red water covering him* *suddenly jumps and sits up as the door opens*
“Yesterday’s view from Sounion, Greece. The visitors of the ancient Greek temple of Poseidon watch the perigee full moon rising, but i was photographing the scene from 2km (1,2 miles) at their back.” – Elias Chasiotis
The temple of Poseidon was constructed in 444-440 BC, over the ruins of a temple dating from the Archaic Period. It is perched above the sea at a height of almost 60 m. The design of the temple is a typical hexastyle i.e. it had a front portico with 6 columns. Only some columns of the Sounion temple stand today, but intact it would have closely resembled the contemporary and well-preserved Temple of Hephaestus beneath the Acropolis, which may have been designed by the same architect.
