A silly little headcanon thing between me and @flowerclown
Branch, being half Ice Troll, has a lot of their mannerisms that Poppy didn’t notice until she and Branch became an item. For example, when she plays with or pets his hair just right he’ll start purring. She may or may not use it as a bargaining chip to convince Branch to join her to parties once in a while.
Just a sidenote: I just discovered I had similar ideas to the author of ‘Find Me, I’m Lost,’ which also includes Branch being half Ice Troll among other things, and if there’s any more similarities between my own Ice Troll lore and theirs, please let me know. I don’t want to accidentally rip off another’s ideas.
