My New Bittys

Note: These bittybones are not part of the Bittybones Story. They are bitty versions of my friends’ OCs, created by my friends and adopted by me. You can interact with them, and I will post drabbles about them, but you won’t see them in the canon story.

See end for creator credits.

This is Ritz, my Crackers bitty. He is the tallest bitty in the house at 2 feet tall, but he is also very shy and doubts himself a lot. He can shrink down to a smaller size if necessary, and when he is nervous, goop rises off of him.

My three canon bittys Red, Brassy Bean, and Buttons adore Ritz. They support and encourage him in hopes that he will someday feel confident in himself. Buttons, being the shortest bitty, likes to climb onto Ritz’s shoulders, and Ritz will carry him around like this.

Ritz stays in the study because he loves to paw through my book collection. Sometimes he teleports to his other home in the Void when he feels overwhelmed.

This is Pecan, my Mars bitty. Please pronounce it correctly: Peh-Khan. Do not call him Pee-Can, that’s rude. This bara bitty is a Southern gentleman and cowboy. He likes to keep his ecto-body summoned because it shows off his muscles.

Buttons really likes Pecan because he’s gentle and soft-spoken. It’s a welcome change from his often-crass brothers. Red and Brassy respect Pecan, but since he’s easily flustered, they love to tease him. It’s a running joke for them to try to get him to say “What in tarnation?” They have not succeeded yet.

Mars lives in the sunroom, in a ranch-style bitty house. His farm is home to a herd of guinea pigs, which he raises to be classroom pets to teach children responsibility. Pecan works hard on the farm, but lately, he’s been a bit lonely, so he asked if we find another bitty. After much perusing of bitty types, he decided he’d like us to try adopting a Willow bitty. He built her a house of her own in the sunroom so that she could have her own space and not feel obligated to him. He wants to “court her properly.”

This is Praline, my Willow bitty. She’s a sweet and sassy fox monster. She was very excited to have her very own private space in the sunroom because she loves to watch Pecan work. She finds him very handsome and loves to tease him.

Buttons sees Praline as a second Momma. He likes to spend time with her because she’s closer to his size, and Willow loves him like a son. Red and Brass like Willow because she had a heart of gold, but a saucy attitude. The three of them all love making Pecan flustered, and rumor has it that Praline has made Pecan say “What in tarnation?” though the others can only guess at how.

Willow loves to sunbathe or sit on the porch with Buttons, watching Pecan do the farm work. Pecan and Praline are smitten with each other. The rest of the residents of the house love sneaking to the sunroom doorway and watching the two of them flirt and interact. During certain times however, Pecan requests that the sunroom door remained locked because “Miss Praline would like some privacy.” That’s Pecan’s way of politely asking us not to be creepy voyeurs.

Over-the-Top Dessert: Southern red velvet cake is usually a tall layer cake, slathered with cream cheese icing and studded with pecans. In this deconstructed version, the cake is low (like a torte), the pecans are coated in caramel to make pecan praline and the cream cheese icing is transformed into cream cheese-flavored ice cream.

(untitled interlude from @copperbadge‘s Foodieverse, where everyone is a chef.  Or just really likes food.  This takes place after the boys get together in The Hot Hipster Chef Documentary, even though I shifted them from Steve’s place, where they were headed in that piece, to Tony’s place.  Sam, the benevolent fellow that he is, let me do it. 8) )

He had no food.

Tony jammed the phone between his cheek and his shoulder. “I have no food,” he said, and it was so much worse when he said it aloud. He kind of wished he’d kept it to himself, but then again, he had no idea how to fix this, so saying it aloud was really his only hope.

He was working with very little sleep here.

There was a long, strained silence. “What?” Bruce finally asked, his voice slurred with sleep.

Tony stared into the empty maw of his fridge. “You know what’s in my fridge?” he asked. “A box of baking soda that’s seen better days, something that might once have been a ginger root, some mostly okay looking carrots and a shriveled head of cabbage, and two open bottles of mustard.” He stared at them, feeling irrationally betrayed. “And it’s not even good mustard, Bruce. It’s two jars of French’s Yellow Mustard.”

Another long pause. “I like yellow mustard,” Bruce said at last. He seemed to be coming up to speed slowly, but that was to be expected given the hour.

“Yeah, so do I, but not enough to have two open bottles! What-” Tony shoved a hand through his hair, glaring at his fridge and wishing the appliance had feelings he could hurt. “What the fuck is this, Bruce? Why is there NO FOOD?”

Bruce sighed. “Because we’ve barely left the restaurant in the last two weeks?” he asked. “That’s, that’d be my guess, Tony. Just call out for pizza, or Chinese, I don’t know, what TIME is it?”

Tony slammed the refrigerator door and stalked across the kitchen. “It’s two am, and I’m hungry, and I’m out of the city, so ordering is not a possibility, and even if I wanted to, that’s lazy, that’s like, a sixth or seventh date thing. That’s a ‘it’s snowing and I don’t want to get out of this bed ever, so let’s just eat lo mein out of the box and pretend to watch Netflix’ thing, I’m not going to be that lazy, at least not this fast, Jesus, I have standards.”

A beat of silence. “No, you don’t,” Bruce said.

“I like to pretend I do!” Bruce made a humming noise, and Tony’s eyes rolled up towards the ceiling. “Okay, so, I have a reputation!”

“Yeah, but it has nothing to do with your food.”

“I’m a fucking chef.”

“Right.  And that has nothing to do with your reputation.”
