Warning: this may be a tough scene if bullying is a trigger for you. You can use the Archives to skip ahead to the next scene or read recaps and previous scenes. In the meantime, we’ll be getting to the core of who Piotr is in this chapter, and that means facing the ugly moments too.

This was a hard scene to write and sort of a terrifying scene to watch come to life. Hard, but important in looking back at one of the most important moments of Piotr’s life. I have a soft spot for this character, which is weird: usually I don’t feel guilty about imagining terrible things happening to characters that I write. This was a tough one! It helps that the folks I work with — Mharz and Snowdon — they’re amazing and what they’ve done here is fantastic.
As always, the scariest monsters are human beings.
