Title: Shifting Odds
Fandom: Simon Spector

Word Count: A bit over a hundred.


The wolflike creatures smiled at Simon's bed with pointed teeth and glowing eyes. The moonlight entring through the windows reflected eerily on their claws.

Werewolves. He had evaluated the historical record, the reports of witnesses, the relevant biology and folklore. Everything had gone into a probabilistic model. Despite the recent pattern of killings -the animalistic forensic features, the correlation of the deaths with the phases of the moon- he had found their existence highly unlikely.

The creatures growled with hate and anticipation and pounced at him.

Unlikely but not impossible. Simon took two guns from under his pillows and started firing silver-tipped rounds.

.finis.

Now, when you say "overhead" do you mean in terms of neural real estate or social capital?

Both, actually. Also, allocated time (which I think is the Bats' main bottleneck; I do wish I knew how they do it, besides being unrealistically capable and apparently capable to deprive themselves of sleep for long periods without serious cognitive or physical secondary effects).
