Anonymous asked: So, it's been established that 1) Cuddles and friendly touching in general are a pretty big deal for BT trolls(compared to humans, at least), and 2) BT trolls have no concept of pets. Does that mean getting cuddles and calming emotional support from a companion animal is basically pale bestiality from a BT troll perspective?
nah, just because it’s a big deal doesn’t make it necessarily a quadrant deal. romantic pity and mere liking aren’t the same thing, and you can even trust someone for whom you feel neither of those. trust and comfort exist outside of those. plus they do have a concept of physical contact with your lusus, it’s not too far from their mindset. they’d be tense a little longer because what is this tame you speak of and can you really trust a wild beast not to suddenly turn on you and bite, but… trust.
idk if they’d see the point easily. a lot of them wouldn’t even see a point in trying at all, much less long enough to see any benefits save bragging rights, but some friendly ones would probably like it.
