heres something to help brighten the mood!! you have a shapeshifter partner, and they always try to scare you by shifting into something and popping up as you open the front door. this stopped working on you YEARS ago, but they keep doing it anyways. why? because you always laugh and/or kiss them, and they love your happy face & the sound of your laugh
yesss love this. i love the image of like a big scary beast popping out and making a big show of fake snarling an inch from their humans face and they just, totally unfazed, give them a lil smooch on the muzzle and walk on past.
