not cat in a hat

while doing the anya x tara gifset i realized they didn’t have a lot of moments but it was more than i remembered. and now i feel like writing some headcanons for them:

  • they used to hang out a lot by themselves when the others were too busy with their own stuff.
  • after bargaining anya showed tara how to buy rare magic supplies on ebay.
  • well it was actually anya who taught tara all about it and how to make money on internet. then tara started to sell her old stuff when she was getting out of money.
  • tara once gave anya a kids book for her birthday because she felt bad when the ex demon didn’t know about the cat in the hat book and she didn’t want anya to feel left out.
  • as nice and subtle as she could, she tended to defend anya from willow’s grumbles.
  • ‘i actually kind of like her’.
  • tara liked to teach anya a few minor spells when she was feeling nostalgic and missing her powers.
  • please, tara was the only one who really did get anya and treated her well enough. they’re good friends.
  • anya really liked to talk with tara because the witch didn’t mind explaining her stuff and was always kind about it.
  • they liked to play board games with dawn. and did it a lot to keep her company when buffy was out.
  • tara always thought anya was funny…….. but in the opposite, anya didn’t get tara’s sense of humor. but yeah, that’s fine.
  • once they had a really weird conversation about lesbian sex because anya wouldn’t let it go.
  • sometimes they sat down and tara’d listen to anya talk about her adventures as a vengeance demon. a few times she’d get really disturbed bc anya didn’t know how to filter the details but it was at least entertaining.
  • anya actually helped tara to study one time and told her point of view on a few historic moments.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
