The one with the waggedy tail


The AU!Pet Person Meme (Shipping & Smut)

>> premise
Hello, and welcome to The Care and Keeping of Your Pet! As you surely know, a pet is a big responsibility, and we're so glad you've decided to be a conscientious master. A safe pet is a happy pet, and this handbook is certain to keep your precious lifelong friend as content as can be.

The history of the animal person is a long and difficult one, with their origins not being known even to this day. However, scientists believe that despite our common appearance - most animal people have humanoid forms except for the ears, tails, and sometimes teeth - we share no common ancestry, even if the ascent of this species corresponds with that of the homo sapiens. We gained dominance over each breed thousands of years ago, beginning with the dog type, who have long been considered "man's best friend." Most breeds these days are docile and perfect for owners of any speed.

Of course, it is our duty as the superior species to take care of these animal creatures, and this is inherent in their genetic makeup. Everyone knows that an animal person, when matched with their correct human master, is loyal for life - a true "soulmate," if you will. Far be it for us to turn this away! Ever since the Great Domestication, these intelligent and loving animals have served us as friends, workmates, guardians, servants, and sexual companions and will for years to come. Despite recent hubbub from so-called "Pet People's Rights Activists," this way of life is wholesome and good. Scientific research shows that the natural desire of the pet person is to be owned and cared for by a human.

So, it's your first pet. What do you need to know?
As previously stated, pet people come in as many breeds as you can possibly think of. By far and away the most popular are the dog and cat types, but exotic birds and lizards have been gaining popularity among trendsetters from L.A. to Tokyo!
All pet types are best suited for certain jobs, and when hunting for one, it is best to search for a type that suits your needs best.
However, a "True Match" - when a pet person bonds with you and only you for the rest of their natural lives - comes naturally, and sometimes takes time before you can find the pet you will be able to give a forever home to.
According to all current research, pet people are completely sentient and like us in many ways. However, it is important to remember that they have many animalistic and feral characteristics. Do not be foolish and think that your pet is a person, despite the facts that many are clothed and may be allowed to read, write, and have "hobbies." Some traditional pet owners may eschew these frivolities, and that is within their right.
Pet people age more quickly than humans, at least physically, and many types have long lifespans. It is not uncommon for pets to be passed through the family. When getting your child their first pet, it's important to keep in mind that just because the pup is tiny now, a grown pet can be jumpy around a small child.
It is important to train a pet. Discipline will be necessary. This does not make you a bad owner. Failure to train early will result in a rebellious pet. Training is especially important if you want your pet to serve as a household servant.
Remember, your pet will be extremely protective of you, especially if you are Truly Bonded. It is best to socialize them early. A socialized pet is a perfect family pet.
These days, unowned and unbonded pet people are allowed to live as strays or "Frees" in certain designated areas. Some even hold "jobs." This is against their best interest, and owners who adopt these strays are to be rewarded. Still, the best place to get pets are from liscenced kennels or breeders.
Some masters find it beneficial to participate in activities with their pets, such as shows and other competitions.
Finally, much has been made about the sexual relationship between pet and master. This is a normal facet of the bond, and humans are sure to find pet people sexually alluring. But beyond that, it is only responsible and prudent for owners to care for their pet's needs. It is a well-known fact that the libidos of pet people are remarkably strong, and when they go into heat, it is usually more convenient for a master to relieve them. There is no risk of pregnancy. All rumors of hybrids are urban legends.
Despite this, masters must remember to not view their pets as romantic partners. Humans should stay with humans.


With that said, thank you and welcome to your first day as a pet's master!

>> how to play
Needless to say, The Care and Keeping of Your Pet is a bit biased and full of propaganda, but it gives a good idea of the world your character is now AU's into. They are either a pet person or a human master, and what that means for them varies.

So are they a devoted pet or a rebellious animal person looking to buck the system? A generous master or a cruel sexual sadist? Just a normal pet owner? Most likely they're something in between, but when you're raised in this world, it's difficult to see anything different on the horizon.

Rules
Comment with your character and say whether they'd be a master or a pet. Ideally, they could be played as both. Mention what kind of each they'd be and what they'd be like, (ie: "Xx-chan is a bunny girl who is happy to please her master" or "Asterothia is a cat boy who is aloof but loyal to his true master"). For pets, be sure to include features ("wolf ears, tail, teeth).

REMEMBER, pet does not automatically equal submissive and master automatically equal dominant. This is not a BDSM setting though BDSM can be included. How far you want to go with the actual "pet" aspect is up to you, as well. Your pet could just be your slightly-furry roommate or soulmate!
Comment to others.
Play out the scene.

>> prompts
This by now means an all-inclusive list, but it should get you going in the right direction.

First Time Pet/Owner: Usually, pets are gotten at a young age; you're an old dog. Can you learn new tricks?
True Bond: What all masters and pets yearn for...the pet's loyalty and adoration for life.
Love: It's expected for masters to love their pets, but to love them? Romance is strictly forbidden.
Old "Couple": Master and pet have grown together and know each other. You know, know each other.
Loss of Master: The pet has lost their master, perhaps even their True Bond. Is it possible to move on?
Young Master/Older Pet: Pets age quicker than masters, so it's possible to end up with a bit of an "age" difference.
Family Pet: This pet's been raised as part of the family. What happens when their feelings for a family member get more than platonic.
For Your Protection: You don't want to be a master, but you have to take in a pet for their protection lest they be in danger from the general public.
Stray: You're a stray or a "Free." Can you live like this with your biology screaming for you to make a match?
Servant: You're more servant than pet.
All Sex, All the Time: The only purpose for this pet is to service the master, and not in a way that means cleaning their house.
Guard: You're a loyal bodyguard, a service pet. You'll do anything for your master. Anything.
Pet Play: This is for those who prefer to keep their animals on leashes, have them eat from bowls, and keep away from clothing.
Breaking In: Training is important with any pet.
In Love with Another Master...or Pet: To lust after another's master is no better than treason, and to wish to be with another pet just cruel!
Punishment: Bad dog, no nookie!
Heat: All pets go into heat, and it's the responsibility of the owner to take care of this problem. After all, unchecked dry humping kills thousands every year.
Breeding: Breeders know the best qualities in each type and mate the cream of the crop together to continue lines. It's a hobby for some, a calling for others.
Pregnancy: So, about that whole "hybrid" thing. It maaaay be more true than you think, even if pet/human pregnancies are the stuff of salacious tabloids.
Territorial: Hey, hey, other dog person! This is your apartment. Stay the fuck out!
Kennel: Kennels are where unadopted pets are kept. They're generally agreed to be depressing places. Why not volunteer at one, keeping the pets healthy and happy with the kind of affection only humans can show?
Rebelling Against the System: Damn the Man! Pet people are people, too! Just be careful not to get talk. You know what happens to bad pets.
Instant Attraction: You ever just look at someone and know they're the one? That they're...your master? But what if you've been trying to fight it? Well, don't try!
Dominant Pet: You might be the pet, but you call the shots, at least in the bedroom.
Pet Show: Everyone wants to show off how perfect their animal is. Look at that ass! And you'll never believe their special skills...
Therapeutic: Pets, especially those bred for their kindliness, are perfect therapy for those who've been through trauma and heartache.
Jealousy: Who's that around your master? Oh, hell no. They better not be touching them!
Petting: Pet people are absolutely gaga for being touched. Even the most steely ones turn to mush for rubs.
Games: Playing with your pet and giving them exercise is a key to happiness. Of course, with a pet person, you might want to use other toys instead of a ball.

1. For fluffy shipping or vanilla smut, she's pretty baseline. Super cute, loving, somewhat prone to troublemaking, but really more interested in making her master happy.
2. Shamelessly smutty and/or kinky version. Still cute as fuck...also, horny as a bunny cliche and slutty as fuck. Essentially, she's going to try and hump you 24/7 so you'd better either have the world's highest libido or be the planet's most long-suffering person. Also, peep the kinks. )

((As a master, Natsumi is very caring and supporting, though she tends to fuss and doesn't like to deal with messy Pets. Any pet trying to assert dominance will be met with a firm challenge from this human, though she gets very huffy and flustered (read: non-violent tsundere) when it comes to intimacy.

As a Pet, she can be either a cat, a songbird of other mun's choice, or a bat. She tends to be a little more aloof when she first meets her new Master, but does warm up if said master isn't a total heartless douchebag. Tends to be more tsundere than her human self when it comes to intimacy.

((As a Pet, Right's some sort of canine or vulpine breed. And he's very high-energy and playful to just about any kind of non-cruel Master. And touchy, too, as in he has no problem slinging an arm around your shoulders or offer a comforting hug-n-lick. Just make sure that you have plenty of toys and food (especially food) and he'll be a happy friend/guardian for you.

As a Master, he's just as friendly to any Pets that he takes into his home. He's the type of owner that picks strays off of the streets and give them a place to stay - even if they end up being there temporarily or as roommates and friends more than actual Pets. He'll feed you, obviously, but he tries to not get too touchy and intimate if his Pets don't really want to. Unless they do. Then he's got the energy to keep up with them in bed.

In either cases, both Pokemon!Pets and Monster-Girl/Boy!Pets are welcomed))

Pet: a tanuki, fox, or cat. Aloof yet playful and not the most well-behaved, Kazuya's either had a previous master or none at all. He cares about his current one through his criticisms and teasing and when it comes to heat, he'll either try to hide it or be very forward, depending.

The Pet Person Project had pretty much made soldiers like him obsolete on the field in record time. After all, why send in a super human when you can send in a tiger or a pack of wolves?

Many protested this treatment of veterans of course, but Gabriel Reyes didn't bother getting involved. He'd done his tours, got paid, and now could enjoy early retirement. Or so he thought. Restlessness was a curse when you spent a good amount of your youth getting up early and always having something to do.

So he took up a job as a chef at a local Mexican restaurant-real Mexican food, not Taco Bell shit-and worked his way up the ladder quickly, finding himself pretty much the boss within a year, only answering to the old woman who'd started the restaurant some time before he was born. She was as sarcastic as him and took no shit either, so the partnership worked well. Still, his days were filled with work, and his nights were silent and lonely. One-night stands were pretty much over for him. He was too old for the bar crowd and while encounters left him spent, they never left him satisfied.

Granny seemed to sense this one rough afternoon shift and suggested he take a couple days off and get himself a petperson. At first he thought she was joking, or at least going a more round-about way of telling him to get laid. But she wasn't. She told him he needed some sort of companionship and that burying himself in work and nothing else for the rest of his life would ruin him. When he snidely pointed out he'd survived several tours overseas and that busting tables for people who didn't know how to pronounce basic spices was different, she whacked him on the shins with her cane and told him he had the week off to find a pet.

He didn't argue the matter further.

So that evening, instead of heading home, Gabriel went to the local pet-person shelter. New pets were too pricey and often too young. He wanted something with a few years under the belt, like himself.

Shelter number one had nothing suitable. Two, the same. By the time he parked at the third shelter, most places were closing. The girl at the front desk was reluctant to let him go look as they were wrapping up for the evening, but eventually she popped her gum and let him go with a bored shrug.

Shoving his hands into the pockets of his hoodie, Gabriel made his way down the line of cells, taking a look at the pet first and then their little info card. He knew he didn't want a dog, he'd be away during the days too much to give them the attention they needed, so a cat of some kind was what he was aiming for.

He finally came to the cell of a black cat. He was rather adorable. Tiny compared to the leopard and the retriever in the cells flanking his. Gabriel had a look at the card. Good age too. Levi was his name...

"Pss pss, hey there little guy." he said, stepping closer.
