concept!: I shrink to the size of a toy and my stuffed animals can talk. We all live in a Barbie house together. We ride toy trains and rubber duckies in the giant bathtub, and share ginormous cookies. My cats give us rides around the house. I sleep in a bento box. All is good.
Ever notice how much all those Disney princesses talk to themselves? They talk to animals who can’t talk back. Plus their every emotion is expressed out loud. They’re very big on self-narration too. Basically they’re nuts.
I had a bit of extra time so I decided to do up a Slack Wyrm in colour. What do ya reckon? Better than the usual grey wash? I’m not sure which works better. Also trying decide what format to make the comics in - like this one in a neat little rectangle shape, or big flowing ones you have to scroll down to read each frame.
The real question is - what does this woman want with the wyrm anyway?
Y/F/N ducks quickly to avoid the low-hanging branch smacking
his forehead and smiles to himself. They’ll go nuts over this new invention,
he thinks, glancing over his shoulder to the wood chopper he’s carting behind
him. He lets go of Phillipe’s reins for a second, pulling a map out of the
saddle bag to consult, but when he glances back up, the path that was ahead of them
just a minute ago is gone. “Phillipe, what happened?” he questions, glancing
wildly around him for any semblance of the dirt paved trail, but the horse
simply neighs. Y/F/N grins at the absurdity of his question – after all,
animals can’t talk.
He slows Phillipe down to a trot, checking out the dense
forest all around them and listening to the steady beats of the horse’s hooves.
It’s soothing, really, the absolute silence and the natural fresh air, and
Y/F/N finds himself enjoying the experience even though he’s lost. But suddenly
a howl rips through the air, mingling with the sounds of Phillipe’s startled
neighs. Y/F/N rubs Phillipe’s back, trying to calm him down, and listens
carefully to the sounds of the forest around him once more, ears straining for
another sound. It happens quickly – the jet black fur of the wolf streaking around
the trees, baring its teeth at Y/F/N and Phillipe.
At first, he thinks it’s okay – after all, it’s only one
wolf. But his hopes are immediately dashed by the rustling sound coming below
him. Turning his head in an attempt to see everything, his eyes widen in fear
as he sees them – the pack of wolves, growling and snarling, long jagged teeth
fully on display. “Run,” he whispers, and everything stands still for a moment.
“Go, Phillipe, go!” With a snap of the reins and a click of his heels against
Phillipe, the horse takes off, galloping straight through the pack, leaving
them slightly surprised. They recover quickly, turning on their heels and
chasing after them. Y/F/N pays no mind to the branches whipping against his
face and the blackness pressing down on them, focusing on the howls and
menacing sounds emanating from right behind him, seemingly getting closer all
Sunlight. Suddenly, it hits Y/F/N in the face, so bright
that he falters slightly. The wolves shrink back from the clearing, snarling, and
back away into the forest, unwilling to follow their pray into an open space.
Y/F/N lets out a huge breath, a laugh bubbling up because of his relief, but it
dies in his throat when he sees what’s behind him. “Oh my god…” He cranes his
neck to look at the top of the castle, taking in the large turrets and grand
stone walls. He quickly jumps off Phillipe and, giving him a quick pat on the neck,
slowly walks towards the front door of the ginormous palace. He reaches out as
if in a trance and grabs the knocker, finding it cold to the touch. The
temperature snaps him out of his hypnotic state and for the first time since
seeing the castle he hesitates. Making up his mind in a split second, he brings
it down to the door three times.
He waits, not really expecting anybody to answer… after all,
the many windows of the castle are dark, making it seem completely abandoned.
But the door swings open. Y/F/N looks around confusedly for a moment, not seeing
anybody standing in front of him that could’ve possibly opened the door, but he
hears a tiny cough from below him. When he looks down, he does a double take. “Wha
– but it’s – a candlestick?” he stammers, incredulous at the sight. “Actually,
I’m a niffler,” the little candlestick says, then steps a side and with a
flourish of its golden hands, ushers Y/F/N into the castle. A niffler?
As he stumbles into the castle, he looks around in awe. The
grandiose staircase, the fancy archways, the antique furniture… but it’s
obvious that the space hasn’t really been lived in. A layer of dust catches his
eye, and all around the house, there are spots of mud that look like… animal
tracks. Y/F/N finds himself in the kitchen, surrounded by what could be a
gleaming and expensive room fit for a king, but is instead far worse off than
his own due to its messy state. He diverts his attention to the candlestick who’s
hopping up on the counter, seemingly calling out to its brethren.
“Jacob! Tina! Queenie!” The kitchen seems to come to life.
The large grandfather clock, the teapot, and the little teacup next to it grin
at Y/F/N and hop onto the counter to stand next to the candelabra. “Who – what –
I just –” Y/F/N’s stammers make the teacup giggle and it jumps forward. “Aw,
you poor thing. Look at ‘m, Tina, he’s so confused. I wish I coulda’ made him a
strudel. My strudels are world famous, ya know.” That last statement seems to
be directed at Y/F/N, and he nods faintly, making the furniture chuckle. The
grandfather clock opens its mouth to speak, and Y/F/N is still processing the
fact that it even has a mouth, when the loud pounding of footsteps sounds from
right outside the door.
All the furniture turns to face it and, following their
lead, so does Y/F/N. He doesn’t really know what to expect… another clock? A
table? A bed? But whatever was running through his mind, nothing compares to
the reality. It’s a beast. His mouth flops open as the creature enters
the room, looking at him inquisitively. “Who’s this?” he questions rather
politely, and the furniture clamor to answer. Y/F/N doesn’t register the
response, though, as his heart starts beating wildly in fear.
“Honey, you’re bleeding!” the small teacup suddenly says,
and Y/F/N snaps his attention to her. He raises his hand to his face and feels
the myriad of cuts littering his skin. You must stay here so we can help you!”
The beast starts towards him, concern in his eyes, but Y/F/N backs away, trying
to keep distance between him and the creature. “N-no, I’m fine, I’d rather go,”
he says, then turns and tries to dash towards the door, but the grandfather
clock – Jacob? – blocks his path and clangs loudly, making him clutch his ears
and wince. The beast takes his shoulder and Y/F/N’s eyes widen at the sight of
claws protruding from his fingernails. “Let’s get you comfortable,” he says,
rather kindly, and begins pulling him towards the door. Y/F/N starts struggling
wildly, desperate to get out of its clutches, but promptly faints – from the
excitement or the blood loss, he doesn’t know. But the next thing he sees is a
white ceiling and a large bed. Getting up, he runs for the door, only to find
it locked from the outside. Trapped.

everyone likes her, but one day she sees some boys being cruel with the animals
in the forest and she actually shows a fierce instinctive side to her. Remus

Notes: hufflepuff reader
walking by the forest next to Hogwarts. You liked going there
to talk to animals: does, birds, mouses, foxes… It was a special and secret gift you had. Today though, a
group of students were capturing and hurting a squirrel for fun. Fury burned
inside you as you approached the boys.

There was a pause and you could see he was getting nervous for the lack of response. He looked adorable.
SO I’LL BE HONEST….. i don’t really care about like. the science behind quirks or genetics, or how quirks can ignore/manipulate the laws of physics whatever in MHA
i just don’t think it’s all that important to the story, and i don’t think Horikoshi put a lot of thought into it beyond ‘and then humans evolved superpowers. except some didn’t’
b/c this is a universe where people have tape dispensers in their elbows, engines in their legs, they can cancel out gravity with little pads on their hands, hair just fucking sticks straight up with no explanation, floating attack scarves, animals can walk and talk, Sentient Darkness, there is at least one literal walking skeleton in the background of some scenes so that’s a thing, etc
i just don’t think there’s any real point in looking at it all in finer detail, b/c it’s just there to give a framework to the story
the real important bits are the characters and how they interact and move the story forward with their actions. the science behind their powers isn’t as important as how the characters develop
can we talk about this new trend in music where the singers aren’t enunciating their words and you can’t tell what the fuck they’re saying but it sounds so good anyway and you’re just singing along doing your best to match the lyrics phonetically
i’m lookin at you alt-j, milky chance, fuckin glass animals (who is the only band that i got the lyrics right to the entire time i thought i was stupid af for hearing ‘right my little pooh bear’ and ‘peanut butter vibes’ but nope those are actual lyrics to an actual song that comes on the radio)
I have hyper empathy toward animals. I always have, I used to pretend my stuffed toys were actually animated pets of mine and I would spend hours in my room taking care of them. I used to play vet too when I was young, I even had a white lab coat. Being so hyper empathetic towards animals is definitely what pushed be toward going to Veterinary school, even if I’m doing my courses online. All I want is to help animals and be around them as much as possible. I have 1 cat and a family dog that I love so much and can’t imagine life without and if my mom would let me, I’d have every pet imaginable. I’m the type of person who goes to a shelter and wants to adopt every animal there. I cry when I see SPCA commercials or hear stories about poor animals being abused. I’ve never been able to connect with humans, for obvious reasons, but I’ve always connected with animals. I can talk to my dog and/or cat for hours and I know they love me for me. And I love them for them. I love watching my pets and other animals doing just minimal things like twitching ears or even blinking. I have this deep connection to animals that I know being in Veterinary school is the right move for me because I can’t see myself doing anything else with my life.
