Imagine Jean gets turned into a cat and he's really pissed about it because he's super soft and his meow is really cute and he TOTALLY acts like a cat. Whining for attention, knocking things off tables, getting really pissy if someone pets him the wrong way, somehow ending up stuck in trees, headbutting peoples ankles, and the list goes ON lmao
Oh my god this is absolutely adorable! I love cats and the trope of people being turned into them, they’re so expressive and fun and Jean would make such a cute little kitten, wouldn’t he?
I actually wrote a little thing for that before, you can find it here if you want.
But let’s talk more kitten Jean! You are so right, he’d be gorgeous and no one would be able to resist fussing over him. I imagine him looking super regal and extremely fluffy like this norwegian forest cat:
(image source) That one’s apparently a female and her name is Beyoncé, how awesome is that?? Also those cats are huuuge and I personally imagine him a bit on the smaller side but you get the idea. Just fluffy and beautiful and occasionally very dorky.
And yes, he’d be so pissy about it! Trying to communicate and get someone to take him seriously, goddammit! But instead everyone adores him and coos at him and this babytalk is super annoying but … getting long pettings is really nice, okay?
And we all know Jean can’t resist any kind of attention and it only takes a minute for him to fall pliant and start purring beside himself when someone pulls him into their lap and starts scratching behind his ears and under his chin.
That doesn’t mean he magically stops being an asshole though. I imagine one of his favourite past times would be luring Eren into rubbing his belly (cause it’s so soft and warm, who could say no to that?) and then attack his entire arm and scratch it into a bloody mess.
Not that Eren ever learns his lesson, he falls for it just the same come next time. He probably knows he deserves it for all the pussy jokes.
And that’s one of the benefits of being a cat: Jean can be as big of an asshole as he wants to be and people immediately forgive him just because he’s adorable while fucking things up.
Puke hairballs into Eren’s shoes? Disgusting, but he still gets pettings and scraps of meat from the table later if he just meows cutely enough.
Feeling bored? Just lie down on Marco’s laptop while he’s supposed to be working on an essay or something, instant cuddles and stupid babytalk (that he gets weirdly fond of after a while).
Sleep in the laundry basket just after Eren is done with hours worth of ironing? No one will shoo him away if he gives adorable little kitten sneezes during his sleep.
Running right between Marco’s legs when he comes home long after dark and nearly making him trip and break his neck just because Jean was bored alone and wants attention now? Marco will probably sit down with him still in the hallway to pet him for half an hour before dragging both of them to bed (where Jean will sleep half on his face).
So yes, being a cat that can get away with everything doesn’t prove to be too bad. He kind of misses it after the spell wears off (or whatever) and he shifts back into a human.
Until he finds Eren’s Youtube channel filled with videos of him looking unforgivably dorky, drooling in his sleep, playing with that stupid feather toy or sticking out his tongue with the most stupid expression. Being a human does have it’s perks as well. At least like this he can properly punch his boyfriend again…
