What if Jason found a half dead kitten on the street and nursed it back to health?
Jason and a kitten, yessss!!!!! (im on mobile sorry for everything.)
He finds the kitten in an alley while he’s getting some dinner because he’s too tired to cook. He crouches down to look at the tiny, scruffy kitten on the dirty ground, lying on their sides, meowing softly.
Jason stops. Of course he stops. The kitten is thin and obviously hasn’t eaten anything filling in a while and Jason should leave the kitten or find an animal shelter but the kitten purrs and Jason isn’t strong enough to leave them to die.
He gets some towels when he arrives at home so the kitten will be warm and comfortable. Jason goes online and reads some sites how to nurse back a kitten to health because he knows jack shit about how to take care of an animal. He buys everything the kitten might need because his money might go to worse places than this.
It takes weeks before the kitten can walk around more than ten minutes.
Things that definitely happens after Fangs (yes, that’s her name) is up and healthy:
Fangs finding Jason’s chest the most comfortable place to sleep and Jason doesn’t move so he doesn’t wake her up. Damn his good heart.
Fangs snuggling to Jason’s neck when he’s laying down and then walking over him and Jason phones rings and Fangs steps on his face and yes, cat hair in his mouth. Nice.
Fangs hissing when there are strangers in Jason’s apartment. So like the first time Duke comes over, Fangs hisses at him from the table and–
“Wow, dude, why is she looking at me like she wants to kill me?”
“Huh, yeah that sounds pretty serious. Don’t worry I will protect you.”
“Har-har-har. Why do you even have a cat?”
“She blackmailed me to take care of her. She’s dangerous.”
“You’re a dork, oh my god.”
Ok, but Jay waking up from a nightmare and Fangs just snuggling closer and licks his face and “yes okay thank you cat but that’s not comfortable at all.”
Jason trying to let her go after she recovers and he opens his window and everything but she just stays on his bed and meows. “Yeah, I wouldn’t leave either.”
We all know Cat doesn’t often act upon emotions or express her feelings, so it’s quite easy to isolate and analyze the moments where she does.
We had some scenes where Cat was speaking of the two persons she loves the most, her sons. In all of them, Calista goes with the same acting choice, looking up and around while expressing her deeper feelings and her vulnerability.
So we can say this how Cat acts when she is letting her guard down and speaking fondly about the people she really cares about.
And then, this is Cat every time she was emotional and/or very positive about Kara…
So it’s canon, expressed in Calista’s acting (and Calista is not a freshman actress) that Cat cares about Kara as much as she cares about her sons. Kara is family to Cat.
Kara talking to Cat about who is on the ship, but instead of saying that Mon-El is her boyfriend and Lena her best friend, Lena is her gf.
“So who’s up there?”
Kara’s stomach churns, because Cat always knows. How the hell does Cat always know?
“Oh please, we both know that Winslow is not capable of keeping his mouth shut,” Cat solves the mystery, and Kara’s stomach somersaults.
“It’s a good friend of mine.” She pauses and she keeps her arms crossed and she prays to Rao that this won’t be as scary as she’d imagined it to be. “And my girlfriend.”
She doesn’t look at her. Instead, she looks up at the sky. Toward Lena.
She can’t see Cat’s face, but she can hear her heartbeat skip. She can hear her heart rate speed up.
She plows into talking more, because she still can’t look at her. Still can’t, can’t, can’t. She sighs and she tosses her arms up.
“Maybe Alex and the president are right. Maybe it’s Supergirl’s responsibility to protect everyone. But all I can think about is the fact that the woman I love is trapped on that ship, and if we destroy it – “
Her voice falters and she prays for just a fraction of the strength Maggie had demonstrated when Alex was kidnapped.
“ – then she’s destroyed too, and that… that would break my heart.”
She sighs and she turns and she tries not to throw up, and she still refuses to look at Cat.
Cat objects – gently, gently, a slight tremor in her voice that Kara can’t quite place – before the word even finishes breathing its way out of her lips.
“No, no, it’s not selfish, Supergirl. It’s human.”
Kara turns to her, now, because Cat always knows – always knows exactly what’s wrong – and Kara wonders if she knows now, too, that Kara is struggling because if she were human, truly human, maybe Lena wouldn’t be in this mess, maybe –
“You’ve fallen in love, Supergirl, and that… that, as much as anything you’ve done, as much as any of the buildings or planes or people you’ve saved, means you belong here. You didn’t bring this fight here, Supergirl, and you certainly didn’t put your girlfriend up on that ship.”
“I could have stopped them from taking her – “
“I highly doubt there was anything you could have done. In my experience, Kara Danvers, when you want something done, if it’s at all possible, it gets done.”
“Kara Da – what – Ms. Grant, what are you – “
“You’re spluttering, dear, do mind that you don’t misplace your eyes if they pop any farther out of your head.”
“But – how did you – why would you – “
“Because I know you, Supergirl. I know you in all your forms. And I know that when you put your mind, your heart, behind something, you’re going to achieve it. You want to save your girlfriend?”
There’s a long, long pause, and Kara almost gathers the courage to look at Cat. Almost.
“Then she is the luckiest person on this planet, because she will be saved, and by the most heroic knight of our generation, no less. I will claim some credit, of course, both for grooming you and for this rousing pep talk.”
Kara can’t help but smile and Cat can’t help but return it, even if it’s a little sad on the edges.
“How’s Carter?” Kara blurts suddenly, because she realizes that the question’s been buzzing in the back of her mind for a while now, since she got his last letter and hadn’t had the time or energy to respond.
“Well, you know, he enjoyed his time away with his mother, but I think we’re both ready to come back and expand our horizons right in the place we started.”
Kara’s eyes light up and Cat shakes her head softly.
“Another time, Supergirl. Chop chop. You have a woman to save. Not to mention a planet.”
Kara chuckles, almost more to herself than anyone else, and her voice is low, almost husky, when she turns to her and tells her, “I really missed your advice, Ms. Grant.”
Cat almost smiles. Almost indulges. Almost.
“And I’ve really missed giving it. Now shoo. Up up and away, no time to lose.”
Kara smiles, exhales hard, and uncrosses her arms, and Cat watches as she reaches them to the sky and positively soars.
She leans back on her hands and watches, watches, shaking her head and sighing to herself.
“That is still so hot,” she whispers, and she wonders if Supergirl’s superhearing can pick that up, and she wonders how she lived a single day without… this.
In my epic rewatch/screencap of the Miraculous series (see the Lady’s Charm and Adrien’s Game series), I’ve noticed that the kids find some…interesting spots for their “secret” transformations. I took each screencap right before the transformation with the exception of Origins. Why? Because it’s hilarious and I needed this laugh. Locations like…
Out in the friggin’ open:
Who: Marinette Episode: Origins WTF?!: In the middle of the street, within view of Alya, the akuma (if he turned around) and anyone coming out of the Metro. Note that Marinette hasn’t moved from her transformation spot and Alya is where she lands when released by the car.
Behind something obviously see-through:
Who: Marinette (the queen of “you can’t see me!”) Episode: Dark Cupid, Volpina WTF?!: It’s a good thing no one is ever walking by the park. Or sitting on a bench. Or living in Paris.
A split second after the akuma/classmates/bodyguard go by:
Who: Marinette, Adrien Episode: (top left to bottom right) Pharoah, Mime, Guitar Villain, Darkblade WTF: Clenched fists = TRANSFORM AND ROLL OUT
Behind a Tree or Post:
Who: This is mostly an Adrien thing, but Mari gets one in Episode: Gamer, Timebreaker, Pixelator, Guitar Villain WTF: At least Marinette picked a tree that might be able to hide her if she wasn’t RIGHT across the street from the Agreste Mansion. Let’s hope no one comes to get their car…Adrien, that first one is a twig. Just go stand in the fountain and transform.
Directly in sight of an akuma:
Who: Marinette Episode: Evillustrator WTF?!: This is the one that made me laugh the most.
Chat Noir looking up at the akuma:
This is where Marinette decides to transform. Note the location of the bookcases, stairs, pole and poster on the bookcase.
Got it? I stared at this next one longer than any sane person should, but I determined that the area in the red circle would have been Marinette’s view right before she transformed. Meaning…Marinette transformed behind the now-toppled bookcase, almost directly in view of the akuma. None of the other bookcases on the right hand side (with the stairs on the left) have that poster and the destroyed bookcase would have been in the exact location of Mari’s view.
It’s a damn good thing Evillustrator didn’t turn his head to the right…
In his defense, he could have been moving around the top area while drawing, although he stops to draw as far as I can tell…if he was on the other side when she transformed, I’m just ashamed of them both.
Who: Adrien Episode: X-mas
*AT LEAST 5 Christmas parties in full swing*
*LOUD SINGING from outside*
*Random partygoer looks out window to see what all the commotion is*:
Oh, hey! There’s Chat Noir in the middle of the plaza! He looks kinda upset…
*bright flash of light*
…..uhhhhhhhhh <–stunned into silence
*another random partygoer joins the first at the window*
What’s the Agreste kid doing….?
*50 people crowd around the windows watching Adrien Agreste and his magical singing cat*
How does no one catch them? I have a theory that they get teleported into an alternate dimension right before they transform. It would explain the odd backgrounds…we know alternate dimensions exist because of the Pixelator episode, so…

on the left–june 2014, just a little while after i rescued him. he’d been living under our house and was very mangy and underweight and generally Not Doing Great. (but he perked up quick with regular food and a couple vet visits for extra strength de-worming treatments!! i have very few pictures of when he was tiny because i swear to god he doubled in size every week until he was almost fullsize.)
on the right–august 2016. a very large and happy cat. :’)
