Summary: Peter knows there is something wrong with the world, but with his memory gone, he isn’t sure whether his nightmares are trying to send him a message or if he’s just going insane. No truth can remain buried forever, though – not after what he has done to the world.
A sequel to “Deep Sleep” and “Sounds”. Complete.
Written for: Heroes Big Boom’s (heroes_bigboom) Round Three at LiveJournal.
Art: by the wonderfully talented Krystal (Chosenfire chosenfire28). Thank you so much, you sweet thing! I love each piece of art you contributed, and you better know it ;)
Warnings: Violence, language, (major) character death, murder, shape-shifting and stolen/fake identity, some gore and horror elements. Implied mass destruction, post-apocalypse. Spoilers for season 1-3, especially season 3.
Extra warning! One scene in particular may sound similar to the events of 9/11. I meant no such similarity, and the two are not connected, but anyone who might be disturbed by that kind of imagery: beware! (contains: buildings falling apart and burning, people dying)

Feedback: Much appreciated; con-crit, praise and general opinions.
About Enemy Within: After various people pleaded for a sequel to my story “Deep Sleep”, a few ideas popped into my head. One of them was “Sounds”, and this is the actual sequel.
Also, this was my first time partaking in a Big Boom, which makes things a little more interesting. The minimum word count was 10,000. I aimed for 20,000 words… and exceeded that mark. The writing process of this story was plagued by writer’s block and looming deadlines, but in the end I hope it is a worthy sequel to “Deep Sleep”.
Story and status: Below you see the writing process of the story. If there is no text after the title, then it is finished and checked. Possible updates shall be marked after the title.
