Defend the World, Hello Kitty Style  
Superheroes get a Hello Kitty makeover.

Exactly what it says on the tin. I think Hawkeye is my favorite. Mainly because I think Clint would be 100% okay with the makeover. Like he'd own it. And imagine each of his arrows with Hello Kitty's face on the fletching. So cute. So deadly.

Abby Watson totally approves of this.

I wonder if there's a Hello Kitty trick arrow, with her face as the barb and it bursts into cheerful hearts and flowers upon impact. Considering the canon diversity of them, I don't see why this wouldn't exist.

So Clint's sort of like Cupid? I can strangely see him doing that. Or rather, I think I see Jeremy Renner enjoying himself playing Clint doing that.

I'm totally picturing Clint diving off buildings like a badass, perfect deadpan face, with a pair of wings on his back, shooting heart arrows at couples and walking away calmly from explosions afterwards, while heavy metal music plays.

Jeremy Renner has such a Choose Your Own Adventure past, I feel like he could portray Hawkeye doing anything I would believe it.

I feel like there's a really bad tagline to this. Like, "Fall in love...if you DARE!"

There's totally an alternate universe where every weird idea you and I have actually exists because we're film executives. And it is glorious.

Speaking weird ideas we have, checking out this cockatoo daemon totally rocking out.

I imagine that in this alternate universe there are daemons and all those actor animals exist. I love that AU already.

That cockatoo. THAT. COCKATOO.

I sort of imagine Demira dancing like that when she and Tony are listening to music while working.

Me too. And that means our panda and nightingale daemons would be around, which would awesome.

Word. It's sort of how I picture Tzophiya acting when Sherlock plays violin, too, only more elegant and swaying than headbanging. Sitting on his music stand and swaying back and forth.

I also think this is Mim and Nemi, if the squirrel was replaced by a tailorbird.

Have you given your nightingale daemon a name? I haven't given my panda a name but it dawns on me that it would be an excellent way to pass the time.

Dejeni has ended up working her way back in to the oneshot with her and Howard. So during my free moments I'm back to watching videos starring raccoons.

I haven't, and I was thinking about it, but I don't know if I'm self-aware enough to pick a name with a good meaning for it. I suppose I would go with a value or concept important to me.

Dejeni has ended up working her way back in to the oneshot with her and Howard. So during my free moments I'm back to watching videos starring raccoons.

Hee! I'm picturing her sneaking in behind you when your back is turned and casually sitting in a chair in the fic, going 'what? I was here the whole time'.

Here's a racoon on a road trip for your collection.

Oh. Oh, I can totally see the Starks going on a road trip now.

Heehee! Actually, Dejeni can thank the fact that Howard and Bucky are adults with filters that she ended back up in the story. I wanted to convey a few things and I realized that it was unlikely Howard and Bucky would have the necessary conversations. But their daemons totally could!

Tony would be impossible to entertain on a road trip. I bet Howard builds something just for the backseat of the car to keep him from complaining all the way there.

Oh man, now I'm picturing a Holmes family road trip, with unsettled daemons fighting in the car. What have I done?

But their daemons totally could!

My favourite thing with daemons is having them doing something entirely different to what their human is doing. I like the contrast there.

That sounds like a nightmare to live through but a joy to read about.

Yup! This was actually a bit of the issue I had originally where I had to keep switching back and forth between what Howard and Bucky were doing and what their daemons were doing. It was kind of a pain. But I think I've stream lined it enough so it's mainly from the POV of the daemons. They can just sort of observe what their humans are doing.

I bet Siger is thrilled about taking time off work to drive somewhere with his small children. He's totally enjoying this family bonding experience. Hermia is not at all annoyed to be not cracking codes and escorting Sherlock to the loo at the petrol station.

Yeah, I have that problem, too. It feels a little like you're sticking in random sentences to keep everyone in the story. I usually write from human's POVs, so I just toss in a sentence here and there about how the daemons are interacting with one another, or what body language is being used, but it's a pain. I always sort of want daemons for this part of the story and then wish they weren't there for another part of it.

I sort of referred to your story with Tony and Mim inviting Bruce and Nemi to live at the Tower as a guide. I liked how you split up parts of the story so it shifted between the daemons and the humans.

I bet they're really sad when the roadtrip ends. I'm sure Siger and Hermia decide that they need to do more of this and work less.

Thanks! I based that on your writing from daemons POVs in your stories, which I had never seen in daemon fic before and I really liked. So, we're even!

I'm sure Siger and Hermia decide that they need to do more of this and work less.

They're certainly looking forward to the next family holiday and hope Dora plans it very soon.

your writing from daemons POVs in your stories,

I think writing daemons is the closest I'll ever get to writing substantial kid!fic.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on October 19th, 2014 04:12 am (UTC)
You did a great job! I thought it rang very true to how a daemon/child would look at the world and react to it.

formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on October 19th, 2014 04:18 am (UTC)
Thanks! Coming from an expert kid-ficcer, that's the best praise!

On a side note, I saw a Teddy Roosevelt Terrier getting his/her walk yesterday. I amused myself with thinking he/she was a daemon.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on October 19th, 2014 04:20 am (UTC)
Oh, cool! TR terriers aren't very common, so that's probably an unusual sight. I had a hard time finding pics for Issie when I was doing manips with her. How big was it? I can never get a good idea of the size in pictures. Was it the same as a Russell Terrier or smaller?
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on October 19th, 2014 04:22 am (UTC)
I'd say it was a little smaller than a Jack Russell. The one I saw was kind of thin so it may have just been a smaller than average TR terrier.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on October 19th, 2014 04:28 am (UTC)
Cool, good to know. Scale is so hard to tell in pictures of just animals. I was totally under the impression dwarf mongooses were cat-sized, but it turns out they're actually ferret-sized, so my headcanon for the way Subira moved or rested changed a lot. And strawberry-poison dart frogs are only as big as a dollar coin or so, so Apellon is actually even more hilariously undersized compared to the Holmes brothers' daemons than I had orginally envisioned. Which I enjoy, because the Holmes brothers' daemons are so very afraid of him. And Hermia probably tries to be affectionate and completely smothers him with her wing.

Aha haha!

I feel like I cheat a lot with scaling the animals. I sort of tell myself that maybe Shess is sort of small for a black bear or that Tomor is a little on the bigger side for an otter.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on October 19th, 2014 04:34 am (UTC)
Yeah, I do that too. It's sort of like in World of Warcraft, if you're a hunter and you tame an animal to be your pet, it shrinks or grows to match the size of the character you're playing. Daemons are more ideas of animals than the actual animals, so I don't see why they shouldn't be a little bigger or smaller than in real life if that's what they need or want to be.
