The poem Long Story by Stephen Dobyns describes how power and dominion over all living things on Earth landed in the hands of man after Adam and Eve betrayed god’s commands. Power was up for grabs and many animals were showing off why they deserve the power with their sharp claws or big muscles. However, power surprisingly landed with the puny humans. Humans weren 't the strongest of all living animals on Earth, but they were the scariest for they showed ruthlessness. Cain showed the capacity to kill his own brother, Abel, due to jealousy and greed, and to the rest of the animals, that was the most frightening trait any animal could posses.

His hatred for Victor was so intense, it fueled a mad desire for revenge. On page 102, when the monster learns that William is a Frankenstein, he says “you belong then to my enemy,” having never actually met Victor in person.

An example would be at the beginning of the story, Peter defies his step-father by going inside the forbidden room to watch a scary, werewolf movie. This shows you could connect the werewolf movie to “Little Red Riding Hood”, Kelly Link mentions that Peter feels a “low, wild, wolfish delight rise up in him”. Peter also makes a reference to “The Three Little Pigs” then he says he “would like to blow his house down”. Peter shows multiple times that he hates his family and he wishes they weren’t together. Another example would be when Ariel in “The Little Mermaid” gave up her voice for legs, a connection that could be made is when Darcy gave up her money to get Peter to play with her.
Both of these werewolves were forced to become a dangerous beast without having a choice. There is also the sense that when one becomes a werewolf they leave all their humanity behind. They have the same bloodthirsty characteristics. Remus states, “It is very painful to turn into a werewolf. I was separated from humans to bite, so I bit and scratched myself instead.” He discusses of how he “became a fully-fledged monster once a month.” Another layer of fear is added when reading about the werewolf because Rowling states, “the werewolf actively seeks humans in preference to any other prey.” The modern version of a werewolf is that a man becomes a blood-thirsty creature once a month when a full moon is out.
