Butt Scritches

Posted Jan 8, 2023, 12:58:47 AM UTC

"Oh Elements, Billy, what is it doing-"

"Relax, they like you."


Billy boy and Lumei, yes.

Well this piece took a while! I'll uhhh have to get back to you on the description, but essentially this isn't Billy's first time meeting Amaru. I actually had the Amaru app a while ago,  it was just bad timing because I had decided I wanted to use my phone less, but one of the features on their app was a kind of "gratitude journal" thing? anyway, you'd write about something you're thankful for each day. It could be anything, even something really small. A lot of my pages were filled with things about my family or food or not dropping something earlier that day, but it helped and made reflection easier, kind of like a reminder as to why you go on.

So for Bill lore, his parents were going through a rough patch and it was really affecting him, but he met Amaru. At first, the wounded little creature was terrified of his presence and would scurry away the second they heard him. But after visiting for a while, and bringing food with him, of course, Amaru opened up to Billy and Billy really treasured that companionship.

Anywho, it is canon now that Billy has a gratitude journal. I guess he thought Lumi could use some cheering up too, so brought her somewhere that meant a lot to him. Meeting Amaru didn't solve all of his problems, but it provided him with some tools to cope in a healthier way.

will edit this probably maybe who's to say

    Emotive! You can see Lumei's aversion to Amaru in her lap as Amaru solicits attention.

      Thank you sm! At first she looked a little too disgusted, so hopefully she looks a little more afraid after some adjustments ^^;

    Lumei looks like she needs to see cute, fluffy things more often-- (I love the expressions)

    Aw, that's so cool that you've had the app already, and incorporated it into Billy's story as well ^-^

      I wholeheartedly agree, she so used to the critters being three times the size of her and bloodthirsty XD (and tysm!)

      I have to re-download it again bc I took a phone break TwT but ye, it's a really cool little game and good for building routine ^^ (I promise this isn't a sponsorship XD)

        Hahaa that's exactly Paiko's situation too (which isn't saying too much because he's kinda smol to begin with)

        Apps like that are fun! I have one that tracks the water I drink, so I have to water my plants or they become sad and dehydrated. Which unfortunately is the case most of the time ^-^' (I shall consider it a friendly recommendation then)

          OKay, it's settled, I need to make these two interact with some smoller fluffy creatures >:3

          Oh sweet! That actually sounds really helpful, I might take a look at that! Been trying to remember to take my water bottle with me places for quite some time now XD
          My brother and I would play a drinking (water) game, everytime we died in terraria we'd take a sip of water

            Ooh yes, what a marvelous idea, there are some portals with smol fluffy creatures we can throw them in >:3

            Hahaa! That has two positive outcomes both ways - either you get better at the game, or you get more hydrated, right?

              Then I shall add it to my agenda! I'll get there... eventually-
              And yes, a win-win situation XD
