He runs in the cold-clean-dark with trees and moon, his favorite place to be with hisother beside him. Not home but almost, this safe-secret-pack-place far from the stink and noise and confusion. Here they can run and run and chase prey or each other and be free from fear. The others don’t join them, those other two that are his—theirs. Maybe some day, maybe soon, but for now this place is safe and he and hisother can leave them safe behind and just be free together.

Tonight their prey is some fast-clever tree thing. Not too clever—not clever enough to stay in its tree—and not fast enough to escape the snap of hisother’s flashing jaws. They lie beneath the trees and eat together and he licks the blood clean from hisother’s face and soon they are off again.

It is a good night and they do not waste the moon. Lust and sleep are for the daytime and for nights without the good moon to light their way, when they are half blind and too clumsy to hunt anything but the other blind-clumsy animals around them, and they have to open each other up to release the joy and abandon that simmer trapped beneath their skins.

When dawn finds them they sprawl on the grass together, loose-limbed with fatigue, lolling tongues breathing exhausted clouds of heat into the cool morning air. Cold bites sharply at skins left suddenly bare and unprotected from the air, and they curl up into each other, nestled closely with the heat trapped between them. Normally he falls asleep soon after the change, but this morning he lingers on the edge of sleep, watching his drowsing mate, hisother. His mind is still caught halfway—human enough for names, but not yet for anything as complicated as definitions, distinctions or abstractions.

But the one thing Kevin understands no more or less in one shape than he does the other is that, so long as Javier is by his side, the form they take will never matter.





Author's Note: And then the next morning was really awkward, because Castle was upset that they'd killed a cat on his lawn, Javier insisted it was a raccoon, and they all agreed to never talk about it again.
And if anyone is curious where the title comes from, it's from a quote in Field of Dreams: "Is there enough magic out there in the moonlight to make this dream come true?" Which...I literally found by googling "moonlight" and "quote", but it works.

And here I was thinking it was a squirrel...

Oh I love this 'verse. It is my happy place. *squishes the wolfy boys*

XD True, but around here, a thing in a tree? Definitely a squirrel. Raccoons live in garages, after all, not trees! *snerk*

But wouldn't posh, upstate raccoons have appropriately posh, upstate accommodations? Something much nicer than a mere tree or garage...

Though, thinking about it, if I was them I think I'd prefer a cat over a 'coon...never know what those things might have.

And now I am stuck with the mental wheels turning on tonight's subject: "Can NYPD Detectives have gay sex while wolves and how would they proceed?"

You'd think being a werewolf would make things more complicated. When, in fact, it seems they make priorities and relationship much simpler. I like. :D

Interesting twist on the relationship between Ryan and Esposito. I especially liked your hint at the 'others'. :P
