Looks like Tribble
Thu Mar 1, 2018 09:57

This year seemed to be becoming animal focused for Parker. First it was all the stories of the Bird Fish tribe, looking up animals that Cleo wrote about, then the actual bird fish in Charms that he... somehow made? So Care of Magical Creatures seemed like an important class to pay attention in, but when he walked in there was a Professor he didn't recognize. One that seemed bored, or annoyed, or possibly both.

Listening to Professor Fillpot he realized he was definitely annoyed, and more specifically annoyed at the animal that they were going to be working with. Upon viewing the puffs Parker could understand why. They were just balls of fur, puffs if you will. They looked like something Parker remembered seeing on TV once, but couldn't place, and he could see why having them around might annoy someone.

He walked up to the bedding options and saw little beds and dressers. That's weird. Like making the animal human. thought Parker. An image of people dressing up dogs came to his head and he just giggled to himself.

This thing is a magical pet, ok. Pets.Like Roofus.
Parker remembered the puppy his family used to have before it chewed through one too many chords and his mother had put her foot down. Roofus had eaten a hole into one of the mattresses and liked sitting inside. He always seemed to calm down when in there, so Parker decided maybe these poof puffs would like it as well.

With the mattress foam in hand Parker looked around for a partner. He wanted to meet someone new, and this seemed like an easy enough lesson that even he couldn't botch it up.

Looking around he heard some humming coming from the area of the poof puffs and that's when it hit him. They reminded him of that sci-fi TV show his dad would watch sometimes. There was some episode his dad watched a lot with small furry things like this. What were they called?

"They're like Tribbles," Parker said softly to himself. Glad that he figured it out, and also a bit worried about what might happen if they were indeed like Tribbles.
