Author's Notes: I’ve wanted to write creature!fic forever, but kept putting it off until your prompt shouted at me to shuddup and just do it. Your kinks were brilliant fodder, and I had a wonderful time weaving them into the story. You said you liked length (who doesn’t, darling) and plot. Well…this is long-ish, at least. Thank you, fest-tastic, mods for taking this on again, and for matching me with a most excellent prompt. I gift life eternal to my betas and a pint of A+ to whoever figures out the origin of the OC’s name.
