This was utterly charming and the fan art found in the replies was also great fun. Thanks so much for posting!

In case anyone missed it, here's another demon story you'll probably enjoy if you liked this one (via).

I can't believe such a short story made me cry. But it did.

1. This kind of fantasy is how girls wind up with really unsuitable boyfriends. All us really unsuitable potential boyfriends should cherish it gratefully.

2. One reason that L. Frank Baum is immortal and we are just fucking around on social media is that Baum knew, and said, that the Cowardly Lion went right on going out and killing every night. He was Dorothy's friend and companion, and a lion.

We must think, therefore, of the demon as an atemporal, nonspatial fallen angel simultaneously drinking pretend tea with a little girl and tormenting souls in Hell. He is her friend and companion, and a demon.

So in the second round, the bully is invited to tea, and gets improved.

This is lovely.

@solotoro, the story you linked to got me crying over my lunch. Thank you.

This was super sweet, and I suspect anyone who enjoyed it would also really like "Brimstone and Marmalade" by Aaron Corwin.

Another one from that same Twitter thread.

(And fuck me for posting a jpeg image of plain text, but this is the state of the web in the year 2018, sorry.)

That's such a sweet thread. If only all of Twitter were like that.
