jffieoa here you go! `~` this was fun to make tbh-- i tried to put different things i thought were important to his character here but i might have missed some things rip
@mutastanaccount сказал(а): FUXKING…. PUBBY LOVE HIM mutastanaccount сказал(а): Or old man mutastanaccount сказал(а): i’m not sure
jfjjifo the one in the top row is an old man (or at least, well on his way to being one; i think he’s about nine), the other one is basically a pubby at about four or so ;v;
@fledermaus-mainblog сказал(а): BABIES……. im going to commit kiss their heads
they would both love that tbh laughs ;; they’re both spoiled as heck
@mutastanaccount сказал(а): Ough,,, incredible
@mutastanaccount сказал(а): do u think they kiss
right here? no
but in private? ...probably still no they’re cats
They're doll characters that were in a very popular book series that was most known in the 1940s! I haven't read any of the books but the dolls are super cute and this movie really made me fall in love with them, especially Andy.
@zhodog сказал(а): I LOVE this picture so much thank you it is so funny and CUTE!!!
jfjkfd no problem! i’m glad you liked it, aha, it was a lot of fun to draw `v`;;
@mutastanaccount сказал(а): “Sire, this edible ain’t shit-”
cat king vc: well it got you to swear so it can’t be all bad
@mutastanaccount сказал(а): Nen seeing Natori in a giant fluffy dress: “damn, Tori, you look good! Hey, you think i could rock one? Looks comfy.”
natori just ‘i recommend it it’s very comfy.........’ tho honestly it’s not like way more comfy than just his usual clothes. tho i do wonder if he’s so accustomed to having his arms all covered he feels a little odd in shorter-sleeved garments thinking emoji
Yo! This is for the "tell me stuff before 2021 ends" post! I just wanted to say thank you, for being my rp partner, and friend!
All your ocs are so nice to interact with, and you're so cool! Once i get my paypal up and running, i'll totally commission you for a sticker, since i adore your artstyle! Your writing style is wonderful, too, so expressive!
Before 2021 ends tell me something you always wanted to tell me. || OPEN AND ACCEPTING
WIGGLES LIKE A HANDFUL OF MICROBAT PUPS........
Thank YOU for everything you've contributed! You're absolutely one of my very strongest supporters, and I LOVE Nen!! He's so underrated!! I always find it so funny when people comment that they love my art style because it really causes me to stop and think "style???? what?? is my style?? i have a style??" because other than the very tufty and fluffy sort of trend I seem to stick to when it comes to drawing hair, I actually can't pick out what makes my art unique. But I'm so glad you love it! I try to be expressive in everything I do—What's the fun in being all bland and downplaying true emotion?
@mutastanaccount сказал(а): Damn natori looks good in a dress
jfjiofda that’s good bc i draw him in way too many dresses tbh
but also he’s a cute fluffy cat, so i think he’d look good in just about anything
If you can see through time, then...
Does Phil grow old and happy, and does his curse ever get lifted?
I like to think so, at least for the first part. I like to think that eventually, at the end of it all, Phil will finish going to therapy for his traumas, raise all of his beautiful children, maybe even have grandkids to love, and pass away quietly knowing that his partners love him and will continue to even after he's gone. He's a good guy, and he really just wants everyone to have a chance at happiness, even if he can't be there anymore. But I can see him dying a happy man.
For his curse, though, I don't see there realistically being a cure or lift to it. It's just something he adjusts to, and as he learns to control his panic and anxiety, the feral spells occur less.
"You're lovely. An angel." Nen to Natori :) Sometimes, a cat has to compliment his fellow cat mentor.
another meme i'm pretty sure i've deleted by now rip
The genuine laugh which erupts from him sounds perhaps distinctly unlike him, and its unusual sincerity (if not its unexpectedness) means it surprises even Natori himself. Yet, something about his young companion’s words strikes him as also a quite earnest sentiment, one with wording he quite honestly finds terribly endearing, and he doesn’t wish for it to seem as if he is dismissing the kindness. He sobers quickly, certain to regard Nen still with a fond look.
"If I didn't know any better, I might be led to believe you were fishing for something quite shiny, Nen. I don't know that I can wholeheartedly agree, but I do thank you for the kind words, ha."
Overly charitable as they may be, at that.

“NATORIIII GET ME THE PAPERWORK TO THROW OUT A VILLAGER
....AND ALSO FILL IT OUT FOR ME”
fnfkda also i made a joke like that only with natori trying to reason with the player character mayor laughs
@mutastanaccount сказал(а): OUGH natori in animal crossing,,,,
;~; he’s the isabelle of his village....... depending on the the other mun/muse, either the cat king is the mayor or the player character is and the cat king ran off to the tropical island to retire without telling anyone lmao
@mutastanaccount сказал(а): natori stays alive out of pure need to keep the kingdom sane
fjfdka honestly that’s the basics of the enduring ember verse
@mutastanaccount сказал(а): Knitting?
jfjfkda that’s actually a really good option, but preferably it should have something to do with his position of advisor rip
"Alright, alright.." Nen was more jolly than usual, sat on a chair with a bottle of root beer in his pae. He was a little tipsy.
"Never have i ever... kissed a guy." Nen looked to Natori, and the King, eyeing them both.
"I have, so, i don't need to drink, buuut... y'know. Just curious."
Never Have I Ever | Accepting
...You're not a slick as you think you are, Nen. Natori has little interest in playing along, and he is just about to politely but firmly decline playing any part in this apparent drinking game when the... more frank cat beside him unexpectedly pipes up, much to his highly-strung dismay.
"No, no, you have that backwards, babe--" The king says, gesturing with his glass at Nen. "If you have done it, you're supposed to drink, not if you haven't."
"So, down the hatch."
It's here Natori reaches for Nen's bottle, pushing it back down to his lap with the long-suffering air of a patient schoolteacher. "I can not picture this playful diversion coming to a conclusion which will benefit anyone here. Perhaps a more inoffensive game might be more, ah, suitable."
The king snorts. "You're such a prude. And a spoilsport."
Natori directs a faintly withering, exasperated glance to the other cat, but it doesn't linger long.
"Oh," The Cat King interrupts him when the realization occurs abruptly to him. "We didn't answer the thing--!" And then, before Natori can stop him, "Look, we cats don't do the kissing thing, Nen. Humans have a lot of nifty things, but that one's just kinda weird."
@mutastanaccount сказал(а): NATORI’S GOT KITTY COVID 😔
BUT THE DOCTOR SAID IT WAS JUST A COLD?!?!?
👫 - Nen and Natori, please?
(sorry if i'm, like, annoying you with all these asks!)

I) this hasn't been reflected in threads exactly, but i do like the thought that natori, as a literal cat and therefore a naturally crepuscular creature even while living in an area where the sun never goes down, tends to visit nen either at dusk or right before dawn bc it's what Feels Right
not having an exact awareness of the flow of time in alyera, however, he'd be at a loss to explain how he knows when to visit so that it's at these particular times. it just kinda happens lmao
II) i’ve mentioned before that i love the idea of knowledge passing both ways-- that is, older characters occasionally learning things from their younger peers in a casual setting. natori has definitely been in the position of passing on his own knowledge and such a few times in their interactions, but i’m very endeared by the idea of nen teaching natori something or unintentionally forcing him to look at something in a different way, ha
differences in generations and their values, etc. and all. and natori’s so accustomed to doing things himself without outside input, it’d do him good to have someone else put their two cents in laughs
III) i sort of imagine that natori tends to visit nen in alyera rather than nen coming to the cat kingdom quite so often, and that may be bc natori himself has sort of maneuvered it into being That Way (which is a pattern among many of his RP relationships, i’m realizing now...)
it could be that visiting someone in their own space is intriguing to him, but also that it’s away from his usual stressors and allows him to relax more. also, it allows for more distance-- even outside his own personal bedroom, there will be numerous private-feeling instances from which information about his private life could be gleaned (how servants interact with him, anything natoru says lmao)
in nen’s case in particular, tho, i had imagined it was bc natori isn’t 100% confident in the dynamic between nen and the cat king, and keeping them subtly Apart just seems prudent (...nvm that one thread we have going where natori left the cat king in nen’s care XD;; mayhaps that’s further down the line)
IV) despite nen (i think) thinking of natori as a friend he's made, natori's view on their relationship is probably a bit more complicated. he doesn't feel he's been put explicitly into a mentor position to nen, and he also gets a very distinct feeling nen is surrounded by many other sources of support which leads him to feel that his own support is not entirely necessary, tho he will certainly offer it anyway
and while natori definitely thinks of nen as a friendly face, and as someone he has a lot of affection and concern for, he's not necessarily a friend in the sense of being a confidante or a trusted companion. natori is very mindful of nen's youth, and even if he wasn't literally a teenager, he'd still feel it improper to rely very heavily on him
as such it'd probably be very common for him to leave his concerns which are his own quite vague when they come up, or do his best to redirect the conversation Away from them, aha (...a trait which has been reflected in threads, now i think about it laughs)
For the Headcanons A-Z, if you don't mind, a H for Natori, please?
A-Z Headcanons | Accepting | Hero - What makes someone a hero in their eyes? Who is their biggest hero in life? Why? Do they consider themselves to be heroic?
i think most likely, in much the same way he idealizes romance, he does the same with the topic of heroism. which means in a lot of ways baron is maybe kind of hilariously the very picture of a hero to him laughs-- dashing, compassionate, charming, and always ready to leap into the fray to come to someone’s rescue, even if they’re a stranger. their heroic deeds don't necessarily have to be grandiose gestures, but they do have to be courageous and bold. it isn't enough simply to be kind, there must be an element of daring and fearlessness in their endeavors as well. continuing on that, i imagine he often expects them to be quite independent, able to draw strength from some inner pool of confidence, and therefore not easily swayed or broken
and perhaps as expected bc of that, no, he doesn't tend to consider himself a heroic individual. he's far too meek for that. he can be helpful, kind, and downright altruistic, and he can be quite stubborn on occasion in his quiet drive to express and cherish those traits, but he can not be heroic
‘heroic’ implies direct and assertive action, not standing by in a position of support (tho don’t assume that means he necessarily thinks little of his own usual part to play-- as much romance and idealism as he might stuff into the concept of heroism and heroes themselves, he very much feels that hearth-guarding duty, if you will lmao, is one worth admiring, although outwardly it is still in his nature to wave it off)
as for who he might consider the biggest hero in his present life, well. i’m not too sure there are any. i could see him feeling that it’s rather childish to feel that way about anyone, considering both the fact he is quite likely to be older than that person and also that in the grande scheme he’s rather high in the hierarchy of the cat kingdom, so it might be kinda silly to look up to someone like that
however, i do imagine he still has a lot of admiration both for the grandmother who raised him and for the previous advisor, who played a mentor role for him. yet, again, bc of his ideas on what makes a Legitimate Hero, he’d be hesitant to label either of them a hero thinking emoji
