We Fit So Neatly - skoosiepants - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
When Stiles is thirteen years old, he falls in love.

She’s over ten feet tall, with gray-green leathery skin and a plump, yellow belly, bright purple eyes and an ungainly wingspan that makes her topple when she spreads them open too wide.

In the time it takes for the dragon to bury her too-warm muzzle in the palm of his hand, Stiles knows he wants to spend the rest of his life with her.

Her handler is gruff, dark-haired, wide-shouldered, and scowling down at him. He’s got a burn scar running down the outside of one forearm, and the flight vest open at his throat reveals an angry red claw mark on his collarbone.

Stiles maybe falls a little bit in love with him, too.

Seanan's Tumblr | drferox: drferox: catsuggest: Veterinarian...

"This is an EZ Nabber, one of the few products I am prepared to directly endorse on this blog, because it’s saved my face and arms on numerous occasions.

It’s like a steel framed set of square jaws filled with netting in between, allowing you to close them over any hissing ball of claws and retribution safely, whether it’s still inside the typical cat carrier, in a hospital cage, or behind a washing machine.

The hurricane of fury and teeth may then settle comfortably in the stretchy netting, where we can still see it and even pat it in a condescending manner while calling it a sweet kitty. You can give a vaccine through the netting before opening the jaws back over the cat carrier to deposit the cat with ‘dignity’, or in this case jab the angry thing’s backside full of sedative so we can actually do our job."
