I needed a post to write, so I asked my twitter friends for suggestions. Fal suggested a post on what creature I’d end up keeping in the mummy show and this is convenient because I love the show, so here we go!
The answer is pretty straightforward, but lets compare the little pets anyway.
The Mummy (Mii-kun)
Pros: Super cute. Ganbarres hard! Loves you. Can survive on dog food alone. Very pokeable.
Cons: High maintenance apart from food. Needs constant love.
Oni child (Conny)
Pros: ……I can’t think of any
Cons: Annoying, a pain to care for, incredibly stupid
Pros: Looks after itself, looks after you, will cover you with a blanket in the night, will teach others, cute, practical and responsible
Cons: Restricted diet, might be hard to find food he can eat, especially outside Japan, hard to cuddle
Pros: Eats your nightmares, likely needs no other food, very squishy and fun to cuddle
Cons: Might starve and die if you don’t have nightmares
The winner: DRAGON
The Dragon is the most obvious choice. I am an absolute mess of a human being who can’t look after himself, but that cute Dragon? Not only does it not need anyone to look after him BUT HE WILL LOOK AFTER ME! Amazing, with a bit of growth and training, the dragon will someday be a dragonite butler!
I don’t have the kind of massive heart of gold required to raise a mummy, or the slightly torturous soul required to raise an incompetent oni child. The fluffy nightmare eater would be sweet to hug and I’d never have to worry about nightmares again! The only real issue is nightmares are already rather rare for me, so I wouldn’t be able to feed the poor thing and it would die a tragic death that’d become my real life nightmare.
So yeah! Give me the Dragonite. I could do with having a responsible adult near me at all times. I will figure out the food situation somehow….
