Tumblr Thread: Prompt About A Woman And The Cat With A Key Around Its Neck

  • 1
    Font - keuhkopussirotta Follow Story idea: The most wanted woman in town has announced that she'll only marry the one who can open her front door with the key around her cat's neck. Many men try to hunt the cat down, chase and trap it, but to no avail, the cat is simply too quick, smart and clever, and always finds a way to evade and avoid them.

    Font - You are the first one to figure out the obvious: Do not chase the cat. The cat is befriendable. Get the cat to trust you, to genuinely enjoy your company, and you can hang out with the cat. You may eventually be allowed to touch the cat. The cat will freely let you take the key. Secondary plot twist: The woman is a shapeshifter. She is the cat.

    Okay, so allow us to get cat-sappy for a second. We love how much cats inspire people. You would think that wouldn't be the case, it seems that not many other animals have that effect. We think it's because a cat's love is earned, not just given, so being able to feel that love - both in this story and in real life - is something that is not only immensely satisfying but also makes people know what it's like to work hard for someone's affection. Okay, cat-loving rant is over, back to our regularly scheduled funnies.

    Organism - drst Follow I gotta tell you, I read "most wanted woman" and did not think "desirable." I thought "wanted for crimes" which made the rest of the story a bit weird to read. ekjohnston Follow same

    Honestly, I read it in the same way too, but it did not make it weird at all. I was simply imagining that these are people trying to get the affection of the villain in the story - who happens to be an all powerful woman... who is also a cat. And being that she is a cat, we felt exactly zero confusion over her world dominance, since we all know that's what cats would do if they weren't adorable little fluffballs.

    Font - The woman was covertly testing the man, but he proved himself worthy of her love and trust by investing time & effort into bonding with her "cat" (her spirit animal and soul). Instead of attempting to trap and possess the cat, akin to what most men do with women, her suitor actually befriends her, demonstrating both genuine interest and a more evolved problem-solving capacity. As their friendship advances, he pets the cat, which means intimately touching her, all unbeknownst to him. I hop
