Notes: I wanted this prompt the second I saw it, so I hope eidheann_writes likes what I've done with it! I love fairy tales, the darker the better, and I hope I've done justice to Little Red Riding Hood with this story. Any accuracies in wolf behaviour can be attributed to Jack London and David Attenborough – and I've borrowed a mannerism from one of my favourite London characters. The title is taken from a Walter de la Mare poem: The Grey Wolf. Many thanks as always to my darling beta, O, who makes everything better. I couldn't have done this without you.
Summary: Deathly Hallows AU. It's dangerous to walk in the woods at full moon. This is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood; a grim fairy tale of fear and courage.
