Thoughts from Writerland  
Last year, I thought finding Christmas presents for the Holmes brothers was hard, but it turns out finding Christmas presents for superheros is about as, or possibly even more difficult.

And I still may need to find presents for the Holmes brothers this year, too.

This may or may not be a relevant question for you but do daemons also get gifts?
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on December 4th, 2014 07:11 pm (UTC)
That is a good question! I'm not writing daemon fic,as Sam,Jane and Pepper have come along for this Christmas party and I can't do nine characters plus their daemons, so it is not relevant to my current interests. But..it is a very good question. I'd say probably not. I think they'd share gifts with their humans, with the implication being that the people who gave the gifts were helped out by their daemons in picking them, so sort of gifting that way. I don't think they'd be considered separate enough entities to warrant their own gifts.

That said, obviously Santa has a daemon, and maybe she brings little treats for the daemons of the good little boys and girls? Hmmm...I don't know.

This makes sense to me. Of course now I'm imagining the sorts of gifts Howard and Maria exchanged with the help of their daemons.

To go with your theory, I'd imagine Santa's reindeer daemon simply helps pull the sleigh full of gifts.

If we go by how Tony gifts things, I imagine Dejeni suggests putting a gear off the first project they ever successfully completed into a necklace for Maria or something. Like weird, but oddly thoughtful.

Dejeni: Dames totally love jewellery. I think.

And Tomor is probably like 'just give him more tools, he likes tools'. And then Howard is very excited, because tools!

To go with your theory, I'd imagine Santa's reindeer daemon simply helps pull the sleigh full of gifts.

Maybe in the daemon 'verse, Santa's daemon is like their Rudolph and magically transformed into a reindeer one snowy night to guide the sleigh because the non-daemon reindeer weren't getting shit done and she had to take charge.

I've always wondered what non-daemon animals do when they meet a daemon who looks like them. Do they know it's a daemon or do they try to chat and the daemon is all 'I"m sorry, I don't speak panda'.

Ha! I can so hear the pause before the 'I think.'

I assumed that animals can sense that a daemon is not one of their own. Probably the scent is completely different and something about their look. The novel mentions that other humans can tell the clear difference between animals and daemons so I imagine actual animals have a similar awareness. Given that, some animals approach humans all the time in that curious 'oh, hello! who are you? do you have food?' way so maybe they do something similar with daemons but fully knowing they are not animals.

Actual Raccoon: Hello, familiar shaped creature! Do you have food? What's that in your hand? Can I look at it? Is this food? Is there water where I can wash this?

Dejeni: Howard! You forgot to lock the garage again!

Hahaha! I'm kinda of picturing Dejeni trying to use sign language to encourage the raccoon to go.

Dejeni: *points* YOU. *sweeping gesture* GO. *shakes head.* NO FOOD HERE. *makes a yucky face* BAD TO EAT.
Howard: Do you think the raccoon come to the garage because you're here or you're a raccoon because we spend so much time in the garage?
Dejeni: This is no time to be philosophical, it has my favourite wrench!

Soooo, everyone is playing Scrabble in my Christmas party story and I don't know how that happened. Bruce just really wanted to play Scrabble. So, now I'm having to postpone Tony and Steve's heart-to-heart for Scrabble, which was not what i expected when I woke up this morning.

Actual Raccoon: I notice you speak like the two legged ones. Is this how you are able to get food? Is this food?
Dejeni: I. *points to herself* DON'T SPEAK *makes speaking gestures* RACCOON *points to raccoon and shakes head*
Howard: I don't think he gets it.
Dejeni: Help me! Grab the wrench back!
Howard: *gives raccoon a leftover sandwich*
Actual Raccoon: Food! Food! *drops wrench*
Dejeni: God, real raccoons are stupid. I'm starting to regret my shape.

This scenario kind of reminds me of this gif for some reason. Maybe that's Howard's solution to the problem. Leave out food for the real raccons to keep them away from the tools.

I'd forgotten I also pinned the happiest beavers n the world. I noticed it as I was scrolling by in search of that gif.

That gif never fails to make me chuckle. Especially the reaction of the cats. They're all like, "The hell...?!"

Those beavers are clearly loving the photo op.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on December 5th, 2014 09:45 pm (UTC)
Those beavers look like they've won the beaver lottery and are having their picture taken for their local beaver newspaper.

I have way too many pictures of animals pinned now. Instead of being one of those people who has a gif for every occasion, I'm going to be a person who just pulls out pictures of animals with or without prompting.
