I'm polyamorous and mentioned to my girlfriend that i was trying to find a nice pet name that I could use /just/ for her. She said that was a good idea, and has taken to using mothman as my term of endearment. It is fantastic and I thought you'd appreciate hearing about this
1.) I love happy, healthy polyamory, and this ask made me so happy. Smooch her face for me, and then tell her to smooch your face for me. This is seriously so cute.
2.) Poly Cryptid Nickname Girlfriends has the same number of syllables as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. What you do with this information is entirely up to you.
I see a lot of posts about “caring for your kitten” and “caring for your puppy” but there are definitely some major differences when taking care of a wolf. You can try these on other pets too, these tips are not only for wolves, but this post is wolf-centric. (this post is not just meant for owners in reference to their pet, some of these bullets can and should be used for pets toward their Alphas.)
Always have beef jerky handy. Beef jerky is a wonderfully tough snack that wolves enjoy taking their time to chomp and chew on. Not just beef jerky, but any snack that involves using their molars to tear the treat apart.
Give them space. Most wolves enjoy time to themselves, unlike kittens and puppies who enjoy constant attention. Just because they don’t want to be touched in that moment doesn’t mean they don’t care about you.
Distance ≠ dislike. Going back to the above bullet, just because some wolves enjoy time to themselves to do their own activities and figure things out, this doesn’t mean they love you any less. They enjoy solitude to collect themselves and relax. So try not to hover if they ask for space, because it’s definitely nothing against you.
But don’t forget to show them affection too. Wolves are known to be stand-offish and sometimes cold, but they do have a soft spot and like to be pet, scratched, brushed, etc. (once trust is earned, that is.)
Take them for walks in the woods. While puppies and even some dogs might be domesticated enough to enjoy a walk through a suburban town, wolves need to get back to their natural element. Be sure to exercise them in the woods by climbing over fallen trees, running up and down hills, or even going in a creek/river.
Be patient. As I stated before, wolves can be stand-offish and cold, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want companionship. It will take time for a wolf to trust you, so take every chance to show them that you are trustworthy, but don’t rush it and don’t hover. You will smother your wolf and most likely scare them away.
Groom your wolf. Try to coax them into the tub for washing, to keep them clean and healthy. If they do not want you to wash them, then offer to brush your wolf, apply lotion, or even brush their teeth. Keep your wolf hygienic, while also respecting their boundaries. (this activity also serves as a bonding exercise.)
Stubborn, but not unteachable. Some wolves, no matter how reserved they may be, enjoy learning tricks. They enjoy a sense of accomplishment. It may take them a little longer to catch onto the tricks you’re trying to teach, but again, be patient with them and make sure to use treats as a reward for them.
Plan skill-worthy games. While some puppies like to play simple games like fetch, a wolf likes something more. Plan games that flex their brain muscle, like skill games. Trial and error until you find one your wolf likes, and once they get used to and learn that game, move on to the next.
Wrestle. Wolves can be violent creatures, and they enjoy a little physical release. So, (with permission, of course) grab your wolf, pin them down, throw them onto the couch, let them get out some of their aggression by fighting back against you. If you want to assert your dominance, a firm bite to the shoulder or back of the neck will put them in their place if they get too rough.
People who try to control your muses. Not just in ( god modding ) but I mean — like, say things they THINK your muse would do or say, to their character. Because that’s the reaction they want out of your character.
If your character is being MEAN to their character, — they don’t want that. They want your muse to baby their muse and treat them like a special lil shit. EVEN though your character isn’t like that ??? lol— it doesn’t matter. They don’t want that response, and they think it’s stupid/rude and that everyone should be nice to their muse.
Please, I strongly dislike that so much. You have your own muse to fucking deal with. If Ramsay or any other muse — is an ass or whatever to your muse. Deal with it. If you don’t like it— go write a fanfiction about how they all live happily ever after and you can make that muse worship your muses ass. IDC.
Just let people do what they want with their muses :) :) because it’s annoying. k? k.
~ Draco growing out his hair and letting Harry play with it, braid it, decorate it with flowers and just bury his face in it
~ Harry and Draco getting a pet snake because, in a sense, it represents huge parts of themselves and what they’ve been through
~ Draco taking Harry’s glasses and wearing them because he doesn’t want to admit that his eyesight is shit
~Harry and Draco having to ride on the same broom because Harry was stupid enough to leave his at Ron and Hermoine’s place and Draco pretending he’s annoyed that Harry insists on flying it but really he doesn’t mind because that means he get to wrap his arms around Harry’s waist and rest his head on his shoulder
~ Ron and Hermoine’s children not being able to decide whether they like Draco and Harry visiting or not because even though they’re both kinda really hot, all Draco does is make snide remarks about their red hair and flying abilities and all Harry does is half-heartedly scold him whilst looking smitten as fuck
Get cracking all you amazing writers and artists out there :P
P.S. When reblogging try and add your own, I didn’t have all that many :)
You know how sometimes you just look at your pet or a family member, and they aren’t even doing anything, really, but you see them and just suddenly all you can think about is how Good they are and how much you love them, like really Love Them?

I'm not that good at making headcanons and all of mine aren't anything special but *shrugs loudly* Some of my klance headcanons is that lance would totally braids keith's mullet when either of them are stressed, they both find it calming. Keith always has midnight snacks, especially when he couldn't sleep, He got into a habit of bringing something small back to Lance, in return Lance makes him breakfast in bed every second day (with hunks help)

I hope Junkrat and Roadhog sometimes after closing time, just break into random petstores or barns or other places animals are kept. They dont steal anything. It’d be too hard to take care of an animal on the run. They just wanna pet em.
