(≚ᄌ≚) [ ????????? ]

send me a (≚ᄌ≚)ƶƵ for my character’s reaction to yours crawling into bed with them. 

    Madge scoot over a bit, making more room for Joh to lay on. 
    Neither said a word for a few seconds once the Victor was comfortable, both merely enjoying the silence and tranquility of the moment.
    It was rare —getting moments in which everything seemed just right and if they didn’t enjoy that split second, who knew when they’d be able to experience another?

    “You know,” Madge began, turning to lay on her stomach and swinging her feet back and forth slightly in the air. “My friend asked me if we had a thing.” The blonde raised her eyebrows a bit, then licked her lips quickly, clearly trying her hardest not to show any sort of playful front as she spoke again. “So, naturally, I said we were lovers.”
                     [ Besties: best type of lovers, hell yeah. ]

As an owner of a wolf and friend of an animal behaviorist/biologist I can confirm both of these facts, although the wolfy one will be the only one I can source once I’m not on mobile.

ETA: mello was totally agreeing with me and I was too dumb to realise it hahahahahahhlgsdljhgsdjhg;jadg;jdfgjhdgjdgjlgvj.

First, thank you for seeking to correct me! I appreciate that you’d do that because I think people often don’t want to ‘start an argument’ when in fact, I’m totally open to having my opinion changed/corrected. 

You’re the owner of a wolf? That must be a really incredible experience and a lot of really hard work. 

Neither of us are biologists or behaviorists so perhaps we’re not really equipped to debate/argue the finer points of recent wolf sociology beyond throwing suggested reading at each other. A well-cited article that argues against alpha dynamics with recent research is here. Until I read that article I thought the alpha wolf idea was legit.

As for the alpha female/menstruation synch thing, I’ve searched the internet and found no proof beyond the out-dated, but influential, McClintock study of the 1940s which has never been duplicated with the same results.

So while there is ample research that’s based on both these studies (wolf and menstruation) they seem to be relics of a bygone era. On menstruation in particular there’s no recent study that corroborates the 1940s McClintock study; quite the contrary.
