Do you have any suggestions for some New Years Resolutions for people? Or the town as a whole? You always give such great advice :)
i was made for this question.
Swynlake, in the New Year, here is my esteemed advice . Take it from me, a true blue Swynlaker
1. PAY ATTENTION TO CURFEW! bITch no one needs to be out past 10pm anyway unless ur a sorcerer with a permission slip and even then go in teams of at least two! let’s not have a repeat of the friendly ghost club remember how that worked out?! badly! u know what u should be doing that late at night? binge watching netflix, maybe doing a lil face mask, or completing ur daily to dos on ur meditation app (download a meditation app u stressed out fucks you live in swynlake you NEED it!)
2. ENROLL IN A TOWN-SPONSORED CLASS! Every Day I Log Into Twitter and Every Day I See People Complaining About Swynlake Not Preparing Them For Swynlake. This Is A You Problem.
girls, gals, nonbinary pals, we have options. Get first-aid certified. Learn kickboxing at the gym. Learn more about fairy culture with a flower-crown braiding activity, or go to a Troll Walk And Talk in the woods. it’s not that hard
3. TIP MORE. this is just like, always applicable advice. tip your servers, swynlake, half of you are like royalty please i know charity is super glitzy but give back to the people who need it!!!!!!!!!! i am poor.
And now for some specifics...
FRANNY SOCIAL MEDIA CLEANSE CHALLENGE
Franny for the good of ur career, family, and unborn child, maybe unplug and reconnect with the things that matter aka not ur new dress or another interview or the weird anecdote u want to share with ur millions of followers. please i will like you so much more if you just talked less
SWIPE RIGHT, TING-TING!
It’s time to shake yourself out of your regular ol routines and get back out there! Meet new people, maybe try new things besides the same tea at the same table with the same people. like, bowling in NTO! or maybe a painting class and flirt with Toulouse Bonfamille for a little bit of posh boy spice! it doesn’t have to be love, but it sure should broaden your horizons
this advice also applies to a couple of other singles-ready-to-mingles: Sled, Marlin, Tiana, Evelyn, Pedram, Lumiere
GET A (SAFE FOR WORK) HOBBY:
Mary “Boo” Gibbs, I am talking directly to you! every time u post on twitter, i experience a middle-age hot flash, as if im channeling the spirit of every swynlake mom in the vicinity. no more demon hunting! stop! pick up knitting! join the volleyball team! make friends, not ghost boyfriends!
this advice also applies to: mabel and dipper pines, huey mallard, ariel triton

Best/worst dressed at the election ball?
oh i am SO glad you asked. this is based on a set of criteria all my own, but mostly guided by one thing which is if i am bored looking at you then we have a problem. predictably, the women did much better than the men. every event i have such high high hopes and every event the men let me down
MELODY OCEANA: With an outfit FIT FOR A QUEEN, she positively evoked the spirit of Christmas in this excellent scarlet red gradient gown, with the details reminscent of holly berries. Nothing tacky about it!
ASHLE BOULET: meanwhile Ashle’s outfit comes from an entirely different genre of fantasy and romance, the kind that involves her kicking me in the face after I confess my UNDYING love and devotion to her. I despised most of the people in black, but the textures of these fabrics, and the deep maroon accents made this dress the sexiest holiday dress I’ve ever seen. again, ahem: kICK ME IN THE FACE.
TOULOUSE BONFAMILLE: Toulouse never misses. Is there....anything more to say? i mean was i just NOT supposed to award a Louis Vuitton suit from the 2020 line a best dressed title??? its the snowfall effect for me. its also my wallet WEEPING. hey king take me shopping ahha
Honestly there were too many to name. Swynlake disappointed me in spades so lets just--
SU, this is not a GARDEN PARTY, GET IT TOGETHER
TING TING, this is not a GARDEN PARTY, GET IT TOGETHER
Kovu Blackwell, I can see my face reflected in that godawful suit
Wilbur Robinson! Demerit points for not matching your boyfriend maybe??? We all know you donated items for his wardrobe.
Thomas Harrington, I love a double-breast jacket, but looking at you makes me want to sleep
Phil Knightley, same!
Dodger, at least put on a fREAKING JACKET ur so handsome why do you hate yourself (peri why do u hate dodger why did u let him get away with it)
Tad maybe try a shirt that fits you! Maybe learn how to tie a tie!
i could go on, but it’s making me depressed, reliving it. i gotta go stick my head in a freezer.

Shoutout to Tigg for starting a one woman war on Wilbur’s mom. Bish really is crazy
Tigg might be my hero.
As the person behind the initial match my donation campaign, I would like to take this time to explain how it works!
Match my donation is supposed to encourage grassroots activism! You match someone’s donation, at a reasonable amount, and spread it onto your followers! The whole point is the power in the collective, and it works in a similar vein to kickstarter or GoFundMe, so that people see that a little can go a long way when we all work together.
Rich people, I am not saying you SHOULDN’T donate a billion thousand dollars to worthy causes-- but think about why the eff you posted your receipt on your social media when you could just as easily have called in your donation privately. Your donation comes across as philanthrophy-for-performance. It’s tacky, and gross, and can actually discourage people with less from participating. Again, we’re not saying you can’t donate. We’re just asking very politely why you are hijacking a grassroots campaign for your own reputation’s sake. you don’t need the praise or attention. :) fuck off :)
So this is a call out post for Franny Robinson, Seamus MacTunnag, Lou Bonfamille, Adella Triton etc etc. Maybe pick up a phone and call next time, or just pledge to match final amounts, like Simba Lyons did? Yeesh
tl;dr EAT THE RICH

A Favor to Ask || Hatter & Lou
It had been well over a month now since Alice had been attacked, but of course Hatter was still on edge. Every time Alice went out on her own, he worried more than he had ever before. His mind raced with increasingly incredulous scenarios of muggings, kidnappings, or worse, and it was starting to get out of hand. He needed some way to put his mind at ease.
One good thing to come out of the traumatic experience had been a strengthening of he and Alice’s relationship. It could still be tentative and tense at times, but finally acknowledging her as his daughter had been the biggest - and hardest - step. Everything after that was easier in comparison. So when she told Hatter that she had confided in Toulouse not only about her identity, but also about the attack - something that would would have infuriated him before - he saw an opportunity.
The soft chime of a bell sounded above as Hatter stepped into Chapter Three. The scent of books, old and new, wafted over him in a gentle wave, and he closed his eyes for a moment to take a deep breath of it. It was nice to smell something other than coffee and tea and confections.
Although Lou didn’t technically work here, Hatter knew this was his best chance of finding him. He didn’t see anyone with a quick glance around, but he could smell a wolf among the walls of bound pages. Subtly letting his nose guide him around, he spotted the young man shelving some new arrivals.
“Ah, Lou! Good afternoon,” he greeted, trying to sound casual.

In light of recent events who is your go to team for swynlake disasters?
obsessed with this question. this should be mandated. if you don’t have your team-up for the apocalypse, what are you even doing? We recommend a team of at least six.
My personal Swynlake Avengers, as per the performances over the weekend:
Louie Mallard: Gutsy AF, he dodged potholes and pigheads on his moped like a super version of a delivery boy who was SERIOUSLY working for those tips! Rescue to you in 30 min or less, or your money back guaranteed!
Barbie Roberts: We all know she had pizzazz, but turns out this girl has PUNCH! Barbara, I’m SWOONING, do they teach you those moves in Zumba? We’re talking Black Widow realness without any of the emo Russian backstory. Thanks for saving Ashlé and more!
Marlin Bae: Every team’s got to have a sexy medic and look no further than Marlin, who was seen leading a few other healing-talents through the rubble! Lots more ppl would have hit up the general hospital without our very own Magic McDreamy! You’re hired, Mr. Bae!
Ian Lightfoot: Don’t underestimate him! He kept his cool and was there Emotionally, Physically, and Magically for yet another Ashley (why r all u ashleys a tiny bit helpless smh just saying). If I was nerdier I’d make a DnD reference about him being the cleric or something but I don’t honestly know if that’s even accurate, but turning invisible seems to be highly useful so i WANT IT
Toulouse Bonfamille: a controversial choice I know, considering the whole WOLFING OUT thing, but nobody was eaten and Peri, it seemed was actually rescued! Who let the dogs out? Me, I did, and I think it would be very cool of me to ride Toulouse Bonfamille into battle one day. Please don’t make this dirtier than it is, I simply love big dogs (why does every sentence make it worse)
Tiana Truitt: Tiana is obviously the Nick Fury of the group. Level-headed and practical, she was working with me to spread info and to help ppl get the help they needed! Where would the heroes of Swynlake be without the Tianas of the world, there to keep supplies runnin’ and to pack a killer lunchbox?
and there you have it! Who would you team up with?

So Belle and Hades at Reza's dinner with Toulouse Bonfamille... what is going on there?
u say that as though these three people haven’t gone to events together before? Like, most events? Like, almost all of them in my recent recollected memory?
TBH Lou has been third-wheeling #Helle SINCE that break-up with Peri. But lay off okay!!! He’s practically dated every other eligible female in Swynlake and the ones he hasn’t have probably gotten the memo to steer clear of that disaster! After all, he probably IS the reason Alana/Peri have been spotted hanging out. And no one, even pampered (but admittedly fabulously dressed) assholes, deserve to die alone.
Quick Boba! Who should Tink hit up now that she’s single and back in town?
JK, obviously there’s plenty of flirty n fun singles for Tink to have her wicked ways with (that is, if we’re assuming she is the old Tink...which it kind of looks like she is). Any of the people here are down to clown, whether in the bedroom or, like, in light acts of vandalism and arson. Take your pick!
1. Tito. Obviously. They’re basically the same person, only I respect Tito more because he didn’t leave his entire business to his sister and then swing back into town expecting everything to be the same lol :)
2. Vidia. OH I guess I feel like making trouble today 😈 But truly, Tink and Vidia’s combined chaotic pansexual sexual energy could level this town.
3. Phillip. Vidia is too good for him, but Tink has sunk lower and would absolutely peg you, Phillip. Just txt her your address.
4. Mitte. Frankly I do not understand how they have not hooked up before? did i just miss it completely or are they actually mortal enemies or something like a neither can live while the other survives kinda situationnnn orrrrr
5. Tigg. I’ll be honest, nothing about Tigg makes sense to me. I’ve never held a conversation with her that didn’t leave me more confused than when I started, though usually I kinda like it? I feel like Tink might get a kick out of her-- if not, then just kiss her to shut her up! You’re both hot, what else do u need!!
6. Lou. Honestly, i just want to see them fight to the death considering Lou and Peri’s breakup and Tink and Sophie’s. haha wouldnt that be fun!
okay, theory on why belle's hair isn't white this time around during her pregnancy. three words: different. baby. daddy.
I love this rumour. I support this rumour. I plant this rumour in my garden, sprinkle it with water, tend its beautiful leaves, and watch it grow, until it has bloomed delicious fruits, each with a name of a potential baby daddy
Our options are obvious, but I think we all hope that it’s Toulouse Bonfamille. He’s been trying to steal Baby #1 for two years now.
If I’m right, Belle is also a werewolf now.
BARK BARK GRRUFF WHO LET THE DOGS OUT
(if you’re so inclined, plz put your wish for Belle’s baby daddy in the comments below!)
Jd (his full name obviously) and dear Toulouse for the spell muses name meme
SPELL A MUSE’S NAME IN MY ASK BOX || ACCEPTING
J: What is their most irrational fear?
This makes absolutely no sense but Jonah David Zingaro has a phobia of horses. They’re big for no reason. They can kill you just by stepping on you. He’s never bonded with a horse and doesn’t ever plan to.
O: How much have they changed in the past five years?
Honestly? Not a lot. J.D.’s the same annoying ass bitch he was five years ago. He’s still stubborn and sexual. The only difference is that he’s killed more people. :/
N: Are they clumsy and/or prone to accidents?
No. Not exactly, anyway. He’s definitely prone to injuries but that comes with the job.
A: Who are their exes? Do they still keep in touch?
J.D. has a number of exes, though he’s not even sure how many. He certainly does not keep in touch with most of them but he will booty call one or two who understand that there are no strings attached.
H: Who texts/calls them the most?
Raf or Romeo. It’s a close tie because they both send J.D. stupid memes all the time.
D: What time does their day usual start?
J.D. is an early riser! He’s usually up around 7 or 8 in the morning. He’s got a job outside of the mafia and is actually extremely punctual, although he isn’t punctual for anything else. He can often be found opening up the parlour he works at.
A: *see above*
V: They’ve been arrested, who is their one phone call to?
Daddy. Daddy can solve ANY problem.
I: In general, are they organized or messy?
Generally, he’s very organized. He’s the kind of person who even if his place is a mess, he knows where everything is. However, he does like to keep things neat!
D: *see above*
T: How quick are they to cry?
Not at all, honestly. He’s learned to be strong for his siblings, so it takes a hell of a lot to make him cry.
O: How much have they changed in the past five years?
Toulouse has changed a great deal! He’s matured, he got his degree, he opened up the shelter. Five years ago his main focus was getting through school and partying.
U: Would they rather be single or in a relationship?
Single. A relationship is not something he craves and he doesn’t exactly believe that he’d be his best self in a relationship. He’s avoided being in one until now, let’s see how long he’ll last!
L: How often do they post on their social media accounts?
Lou’s got a couple different socials. His own, the one he runs for the shelter and also the sextuplet’s acount. He posts almost everyday on the shelter’s accounts, usually photos of cats who need to be fostered or adopted with small blurbs. He also posts daily on his own cats’ socials, because he can’t get enough of them. He rarely posts on his own though, because he’s just too busy!
O: *see above*
U: *see above*
S: How do they tell someone they’re sorry?
Oh god. He has a hard time accepting that he’s wrong, so usually it’ll just be like a quick “I’m sorry” and that’s it.
E: Are they the happiest they’ve ever been?
Oh yes! Yes he is!!

Follow Your Instincts || San + Ratigan
Ratigan carries out his mission for Zira by obtaining a werewolf’s claw.
Trigger Warnings: blood, fighting, mutilation (not explicit description but still there!)
To Ratigan’s displeasure, it had been more difficult tracking down a werewolf within the boundaries of Swynlake than he had initially anticipated. The ones he knew of due to their time in the papers (Merida DunBroch, for everything that had happened between her, the Acherons, and the officer who had been arrested among it all. Toulouse Bonfamille, for his reputation as an artist, status, and his spot as a witness in one of Tritons’ daughter’s case,) were too high profile.
There were plenty of other scents that littered the forest but they had all come to dead ends when he had tried to follow them— all that time he had spent out of the field and it had seemed he had become rusty. How utterly inconvenient.
Just as he had been about to give up on finding someone within reach and outsource finding a werewolf to the general underground network, he found them. He had been delivering the latest updates to the books for Ms. Truitt’s restaurant when he smelled it. Another wolf.
It took some time to assess whether or not she would become the target (having to keep a farther distance than he would have on a normal target to avoid her heightened senses paired with his lack of practice in this part of the job did not make for a quick analysis), but after he had witnessed her change several times over without any sign of other pack members it was clear that she would do just fine.
Night had fallen over Swynlake and with it, the quiet.
Ratigan entered Enchantra and for the first time, let the wolf inside him to experience it, too. Having only been allowed out in the basement of his home the wolf was beside itself with this freedom. But there was also a mission to accomplish here. By now he knew the area of the forest the other wolf frequented, so off it went. It moved through the muted forest with only the light of the moon that could break through the over brush to keep it devoid of colour.
Her human day had seemingly gone well. But she needed a break from the human cycle. Nighttime was for the wolf. It wasn’t unusual for San to go for a run before retiring to the castle for the night, so Merida wasn’t waiting up. No one would notice she was gone. The wolf cheerily took over as she stripped down. The she wolf howled as she could get loose of her human restraints. She couldn’t ruin her clothes from shifting in them anymore. There was a ‘normal’ life to lead now. San was changing into a wolf now, but she was finally changing back into a girl after quite a long time.
The moon wasn’t full tonight, but the slight pull of it made her change easier. Not that it had ever been difficult. San was still in sync with the inner canine and swore to never lock it up like some people seemed to do. She’d let herself run and never truly be tamed. Just like she used to with her family, only this time she was alone. It still felt good. The crisp air, the hum of the nightlife, a familiar smell… It felt like home.
Wait, what was that smell.
Big brown eyes became alert and San slowed down. Friend or foe? Lou would warn her against interactions with strange wolves; but she was once a strange wolf, wasn’t she? Werewolves had an affinity with nature, or at least San did from years of guarding it. She could make a friend out of any kind of creature. Humans, though, were the unsafe ones. She sought out the wolf, nose in the breeze. Maybe she could introduce them to her newfound family, maybe they’re like her.
Unlike the younger wolf, Ratigan’s was used to being locked up, only to be let out when its control was too much to ignore. Even then the man kept it within a cage in his basement, his paranoia having built the space in case his other life came for him in this one. It was reinforced and even the wolf, with all its strength, had not been able to break out of it. This was the first time it had been out. This was the first time it had been able to run. The distraction of freedom almost made it lose sight of the task at hand as the want— the need to experience this world for its own almost too tempting to ignore now that it was in control.
It did, though, because it knew what was at stake. The man had made a deal with the enemy. The threat of death hung heavy above its head— the blade of a guillotine ready to be released. If it ruined this chance then one night in the forest would not have been worth it. So it listened and maintained the course.
The lack of experience was apparent. Ratigan’s movements were always done with purpose, having learned how to use his body to every advantage it could offer. In this form he had not taken the time to learn. So much time had been dedicated to keeping it inside, to relearning his human form with the addition of the wolf’s presence, that the wolf itself had been neglected. Clumsy were its movements and its approach no longer had the element of surprise.
But, perhaps it could use that to its advantage.
The wolf kept a distance but approached, ear flicking as it listened to the movement of the other in the brush of the forest. Finally it stopped and tilted its head at the other wolf, as if curious but open to the stranger.
They seemed to be at an impasse. Ears swivelling to capture all noises, canine eyes scanning for microaggressions. San didn’t feel as if she were in danger. She never did as a wolf. She didn’t get that sense from other creatures at least.
Still, she was cautious in her approach. San’s head was lowered and her ears were nearly flat against her skull. She had no pack to call her own, so she approached as an omega. The Lone Wolf.
She used to have her tail bristled in meetings of new wolves, but now it was tucked. How the mighty had fallen. She was unaware of this wolf’s stature, but if he too was alone… they could help each other.
They met somewhere in the middle and San dared to sniff first. Little did she know she left her scruff open for any attacks.
The wolf felt the growing anticipation as the other approached. Guilt already sat hot in its throat as it did not want to attack. It wanted to greet, to learn, to get the chance to find solace in the other wolf.
They were pack animals at heart and it knew that vampires were close by. Why would it chose to be on their side instead of one of its own kind? Why could they not make friends here and confront the enemy should she come back?
There was a moment of peace, a pocket of stillness, where it thought— maybe they did not have to be so alone. Maybe this was the decision that could change that.
But the man insisted and what the man wanted, the wolf did, too, in the end.
When the other wolf leaned forward, it allowed it those few seconds to be lulled into a sense of security before reaching back. It was quick but his aim off in the lack of experience. Its teeth caught some skin, enough to tear, but not enough to have grabbed hold of anything more than fur that only came away as it pulled back.
It happened so fast. Harmless curiosity turned to aggression. San yelped and jerked away.
Only her fur was marred by the attack, but it felt as if her childlike trust was too. She wouldn’t make this mistake again. The wolf dropped down and bared her teeth. Snarling, try that again and I’ll go for your throat! San was in defense mode. If he moved to attack her again he’d have to step forward. He’d have to get past her teeth.
The wolf shook its head at the disorientation of having missed, annoyance building from within from the frustration that had been there since it had entered the woods. As soon as it heard the snarl of the other it knew that it had lost the advantage of surprise that had been in its favor and would now have to rely on instinct.
She had lowered herself, at the ready to pounce should it make another move against her.
Instead of a warning, it took this as a second chance.
With her legs protected by her stance the wolf instead aimed for her right flank, teeth finding flesh this time before pulling away to regroup for her counter attack.
San yelped again. Why was he doing this? She’d never hurt another wolf. And she didn’t know of a rival pack in the area, not that she was in one herself.
She felt the puncturing in her side and lunged. Right for the throat like she had warned. Only she got a mouthful of scruff. Still she bit down and shook her head, ripping away at the flesh. San was barely human. The aggression of the wolf was all too familiar to her. She was a small but mighty foe.
While the wolf had no experience with pain, the man within did, and knew how to continue to ride the high of adrenaline during a fight. The other wolf’s teeth in its skin elicited a whine in the back of its throat but it did not stop it from calculating its next move. The close quarters were to its advantage with the task it needed to complete. It growled, low and rumbling, before snapping into a bark as it reached around to grab the back of the wolf’s neck. Its jaws clamped down, yanking it away despite her teeth taking some of it with her.
It slammed her down into one of the exposed roots along the forest’s floor, a harder target than the soft grass and earth that lay below them. A paw stepped down on her throat in place of its teeth, claws digging in. It barked twice in warning for the younger wolf to stay down.
This wolf was unlike most she’d faced. He seemed inexperienced, but brutal. Taking her down with a swift motion and brute force, his teeth dug into her and shoved San to the ground. She stayed still. Not really surrendering yet, but panting loudly. Her white coat was matted with saliva and blood, marring its usual beauty.
San was scared.
She let out a howl, long and loud. But she knew no one would come to save her. She had no family anymore. At least none that could help her now.
Help. She howled again and it sounded like the broken hearted wail she’d belted out before she began her journey to this place.
The wolf didn’t like this, its ears pulling back and laying flat against its head as the other wolf struggled. The howl echoed inside of its chest, the beginnings of a whine whistling at the beach of its throat. Why was it hurting her? Why couldn’t it just—?
Because it had a job to do, and if it did not follow through then there would be more lost than a silly little claw.
With a huff the wolf pressed its weight down on the wolf in an attempt to keep her from moving too much for this next part. Its other paw planted itself on her foot that was closest to the ground to keep her from scratching. It gave one last warning bark, upper lip lifting as it quickly leaned forward.
Its teeth sunk into her paw, head shaking as it tried to pull its prize free. It had to move its head to the side, using its back teeth and strength of its jaw to bite down again. Blood pooled in its mouth, but so did the claw it had been asked to obtain.
The girl inside screamed as the teeth dug into her flesh. It was violent and rough. San could have endured a claw breaking off easily, if it had not been ripped away with sinew and skin.
San shook the wolf off after it had seemingly gotten what it wanted from her. Flipping up from her side she shifted back into a girl. Bones shifting and turning back painfully, but not as painful as her hand. A girl stood naked in the woods with blood dribbling down her arm. She held her shredded fingertip to stop the bleeding and kicked the wolf that had a piece of her in its mouth.
“Why?” she cried. “You’re the reason humans think we are the monsters!”
With that she ran away. She needed to get help. A strange wolf had just taken a chunk of her finger off and while she will heal fast… there was still a lot of blood.
The wolf allowed itself to be thrown off as it had what it needed from the other, stepping back a few steps to watch as she shifted back. Its head tilted at her as she yelled at it, blood dripping down from its mouth to stain the fallen leaves below. The wolf failed to see what this had to do with humans when she had been the one who was wronged. Humans would not care if it had shed the blood of another they saw as a monster.
It already knew what it was. Even in its human form — perhaps it was the worse version of the word when it was the man who walked around in his costume of a suit and the mask he had made to appear like everyone else. The pretending. Maybe this form looked the part, but it had always been something that was other.
The wolf wondered why she had bothered to ask for an explanation if she was not going to wait for an answer. It did not blame her, though, it was only natural to run from danger. It watched as she disappeared before slipping back into the darkness, tongue pressing the claw against the roof of its mouth for safe keeping.

Toulouse Bonfamille - @artistoulouse
OK I’LL DO A FEW: Romas and Tomally, Bellan (idk what THAT name is but for now it works, Susan and Belle, Tally and Lou, LAN... Rose and Candace (I just think they’re neat)
Rose and Thomas
when they were dating, rose wore tom’s sweaters and stuff a lot and they were very big on her and tom thought it was very cute.
he actually asked her if she would give his sisters some hand to hand combat lessons, but it never came to fruition because they broke up before she met his fam
she probably still has a sweater or two of his. that’s okay, she can keep them - tom
they used to stay up really late in the night just laying there talking about stuff and they both kind of skirted around the Heavy Stuff but they kind of had the understanding they were both #goingthroughit and it was nice to just talk to someone else.
Tally and Thomas
now that tom has driven tally’s car, he’s gonna wanna do it more. she’s got him hooked now, RIP tom.
sometimes she sends him like really overtly flirty things like “wow look, remy is doing a date night deal” and tom goes “wow thanks! i bet phil would love to take his fling of the week to this” and tally is just like >:(
tally definitely thinks tom is flirting with her because he is just a Gentleman and like holds the door open for her and compliments her whenever he sees her. tom has no idea what is happening.
if they start dating, tom is 100% gonna be unaware until someone else says something. it will probably be phillip, and then john will have to confirm it.
San and Belle
belle is teaching san to read! she’s also teaching opal to read, so she sits with both of them with picture books and is teaching them the alphabet. (san is only slightly better than opal.) (also this is probably the cutest hc i’ve ever had.)
belle thinks san’s white coat is very pretty and has told her so. lou did not speak to her for the rest of the day when this exchange happened. (HE is the prettiest wolf.)
lou and belle have gotten in a fight over san’s style. lou is trying to coax her to dress more like he wants her too and belle keeps arguing that she should be able to wear whatever she wants as long as it is societally appropriate.
belle is like...pretty sure that san’s pack/her mom are dead, but she doesn’t know how to say that and doesn’t want to crush the girl. but, she’s also torn on whether or not she should say anything and it’s driving her crazy.
Susan and Belle
susan is one of those customers in the shoppe that belle just kind of smiles at when she comes in, because susan usually knows what she wants.
belle is aware that susan has some “dark” magic hanging about her, because hades has noticed it, but belle is very much of the opinion that “dark” magic doesn’t really mean anything besides “underworld” magic and as long as they don’t have any reason to worry about her, she’s perfectly friendly.
if anything, it’s made her more intrigued. susan was coming into the shoppe before hades and belle met, so once belle found out, she was like...a little more friendly toward susan and susan probably noticed...belle is just nosy.
i think that hades should start a book club but it’s like only “dark magicks” and that susan should definitely join, this isn’t a hc but a plot pitch. thistle will join too.
Tally and Lou
im sorry but lou has no opinion on Tally. okay, if anything he thinks she’s a little tacky but he has few opinions on people who don’t really have anything to do with him.
that being said, since she is like “competition” with marie’s stuff, he’s gonna be keeping more of an eye on her. sabotage? it is not off the table...
San and Lou
lou makes san check in at least once a week so he can be sure she’s not dead in a ditch somewhere.
adelaide has only met san once (she hasn’t been in town much), but she was at first kind of wary of her but after about an hour she decided that san is precious and now always asks about her when her and lou talk (which is not often (he’s mad at her))
marie, on the other hand, thinks that san absolutely cramps her style and wants little to do with her lmao (obviously this is up to bee but im just doing a lou’s family theme)
ber feels bad for san bc lou is being extremely ... toulouse about “raising” san lmao -- he has probably offered her a joint and gotten yelled at by toulouse about it.
san brings her laundry to the bonfamilles because ... where even is san living rn? i dont know -- but it distresses nounou greatly. HOW does she get so much dirt everywhere??
lou is secretly v protective of san and will literally throw down at teh first available opportunity if anyone fucks with her.
Rose and Candace
they both are friends with henry and when henry introduced rose to candace it was as “a family friend”...henry has a lot of “family friends” but candace is just kind of jealous of this so she doesn’t think much of it
candace absolutely thinks rose is hot -- she has that like rough around the edges, slightly unhinged vibe that candace is into. she has definitely asked henry if she was queer and henry is useless so he was like “i--don’t know?”
they have never hung out on their own but they’ll chat at parties if they see each other. be like bathroom friend bitches y’know like hanging out in a group but then one of them is like ugh i have to go to the bathroom and the other is like okay omg i’ll go with you!
i think they should be better friends.
