Yes! True love. LOL! I think that would be so sweet. Turtles and wolves get lonely, too. I'm going to hunt down these Dief/turtle fics.
Hey! We could start a movement that could sweep the fandom. A Dief/turtle archive! Arranged by categories: Turtle!angst; Deaf!Dief fic; Blind!turtle fic; Hard Shell fic (R, NC17 and, what the heck, XXX turtle porn). *eg*
Seriously, Dief and the turtle are so loveable! This piece is adorable!
The cute gets cuter. I once read a fic on ds_flash where they fell in love and went on a date. Honest!
The turtle doesn't have a name in canon. In fanon, Speedy is the popular choice, but I used The Turtle (to match The Stella and give Ray an obsession with the definite article - no Fraser didn't want one) in "Do They Have Gooseberries In Canada", my first online fic in the fandom.
But that is the cutest reptile ever. I *heart* him, and I *heart* Dief too. (I am an equal opportunities *heart*er)
