"If you’re not represented by the heroes and the civilians, that leaves two choices: accept that people like you don’t exist in that world, or lay claim to the creatures the status quo fears. [...]

Wholesomeness break: my old cat never really liked being held, and loathed having his paws held, but because he was a Very Good Boy he would just sigh dramatically and try to ooze away rather than fight it.
One time I was having a breakdown about how hard my uni work was and he hopped into my arms, shoved both paws in my hand and purred hard enough to vibrate my bones until I stopped crying because he knew I liked holding him even if he found it unappealing.
