The protagonist meets a puppy at a really young age and ends up with this boy by their side for pretty much their whole life.
Will we show the frailty of humanity or our potential?
Will we try to tame them, leave them wild, or teach them how to blend in?
Will we be friends, siblings (sworn or registered), or something else?
I’ve been sitting on this idea for… I think at least a month now.
Characters (not finished. Might change in progress)
Grandpa: Works for a group that defends the wilderness. Always has some story to tell about strange creatures.
Dad: Seems like a typical office pushover but isn’t surprised by monsters being real and won’t let big claws and gnashing teeth intimidate him.
Mom: Works a job that leaves her plenty of time and energy for the gym. Former gang member (real one instead of one of those member by proxy girlfriends).
Ms. Chamo: A young friend of Grandpa. Mysterious info dealer. Keeps making weird drinks.
Protag: Pretty much raised on Grandpa’s stories.
Companion: Escaped some over armed anti wolf idiot that didn’t quite know what exactly he was shooting. Sure werewolves have super healing but they aren’t wolverine. Not saying the rest of them are unquestionably dead.
General flow or my current idea of it:
Ill timed trip: Get the family a bit introduced and have some basic character creation here.
Diner dog or getting home: The companion stuff starts here and a quick choice whether to keep them in or out.
Education: First day of school and dealing with our puppy in public.
Adolescence: Getting into our interests and maybe some relationships.
Prom night fight: going or not our life is about to change.
Grown decisions: Choosing whether to follow grandpa, focus on a career, or other and deal with what comes from it.
