    Summary

    At the Order's third clandestine meeting, Dumbledore pulled Severus aside. Severus kept to the edges in these meetings, anyway, so Lily didn't even notice him go.

    Out in the cold side alley, Dumbledore put his hands in the pockets of his robes and watched Severus slowly. Severus felt weighed. After a long moment he lifted his chin and looked back.

    "Severus," said Dumbledore. "I am going to ask something difficult of you. It would mean not coming to meetings anymore. It would mean... a lot of things." In the decades they would fight this long, quiet war together, Severus would come to know Albus Dumbledore better than most. He would see him tired, see where his enigmas faded into exhausted despair. He would come to know that this hesitancy was something the headmaster would grow out of-- one day, when asking children to give their lives for the cause, there would be no stumble to this man's voice.

    Summary

    "Hello, Stiles," Peter's voice purrs down the line. Stiles lets out a harsh breath. "To what do I owe the pleasure of you calling me at 1:00 a.m.?"

    Shit, is it that late? He hadn't even noticed.

    "Stiles?" Peter asks when Stiles doesn't say anything. Stiles is pretty sure he's imagining the concern in his voice.

    "I need your help," Stiles says.

    "Really," Peter says, sounding amused. Fucker. "And why exactly should I help you?"

    "Besides the whole pack loyalty thing? That I've saved your life multiple times?" Stiles asks. "I don't know, basic human decency?"

    Peter hums under his breath. "Well, I suppose there is that," he says.

    "How about the chance to be an alpha again?" Stiles asks.

    There's silence down the line for long enough that Stiles actually pulls his phone away from his ear to make sure the call is still connected.

    "Where are you?" Peter finally asks.

    OR

    Stiles is attacked by an alpha at college and bitten. He calls Peter for help.
