fHOOO DANG, LET’S ADD SOME ROBOTS AND SPLINTERS TO THE NYA AU, WE CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH WITCHES AND CATS, NYA! >:3
Squarewave and Sawtooth are the odd-couple warlock husbands that live down the block from the Lalondes and Striders in their cafe-partment. Their apartment is also mixed use with a music store at the street-level floor and a production studio between their living space and shop. They’ve got a sweet little son named Sebastian that they adopted.
Hal and Davesprite (or just Sprite in this case, because cute kitty names) are short and cute munchkin Scottish folds that are Squarewave and Sawtooth’s familiars, and they happened to be at the Lalondes’ home when the Striders had been changed into humans which as a result got the two other cats transformed too. They don’t really mind though, because they find it easier to interact with their all-human family a bit easier instead of toddling around on short legs and having Seb have to carry them everywhere. They’re not just familiars though, but also help Seb as service cats since he’s autistic; they’re more than happy to let Seb stim with their paws and fluffy soft fur. :3
The Strider nyas are great friends with everyone and they tend to hang out at each others’ houses whenever they get the chance (which is often, since they’re literally cats at the core and don’t really have much to do when the Lalondes are at school or working). Dirk likes them a whole lot and treats the Squaretooth household like a second home. Having more cats around to interact with is a good thing for both younger Striders and the Lalondes are happy that their cats are socializing.
Brobot is the music store roomba that Squarewave and Seb like to tape a knife to as a joke and call him a “Doomba.”
