afigureofspeech replied to your photo “*breathes heavily* WEREWOLF AU NATURALLY YOU’D THINK TO TAKE IT TO A…”OMFG i went to a completely different place in my head, less a struggle for power and more Clarke just starts relying a lot on Bellamy, but omg I love the idea of them meeting as wolves and humans and Clarke has NO IDEA but Bellamy assumes she does
i cannot believe that this type of werewolf shenanigans is not a bigger presence in fandom i mean come on
like maybe clarke goes out for runs by herself at night or something, and she runs into this other wolf whom she doesn’t know, but they wolf-flirt and play and run around together, and she brushes it off thinking it’s just a normal wolf, not a human in wolf form like her (and this is why she doesn’t tell anybody because she thinks it’s a little weird, like having a crush on an actual wolf. like. that’s odd. even for a werewolf. right?)
but then bellamy and his sister show up, and they seem oddly insistent on joining clarke’s group (she hesitates to call it a “pack” because she knows how most werewolf packs operate *cough* jaha and her mother’s *cough* and that’s really not how she does things—she doesn’t even let them call her the alpha, because she hates those terms and the whole concept anyway) and bellamy just sort of starts…appearing everywhere, and naturally taking over duties that have always been her responsibility (like, she’d get mad, but it’s only the stuff she’s lousy at and hates doing anyway, and it’s not like he’s not good at it) and everybody kind of just silently accepts him as a co-leader without much discussion at all and starts assuming that they’re partners and hello?? what the hell, are we not going to even talk about this??
and he gives her such weirded out looks whenever she asks about it, she’s starting to think she might be the crazy one, like maybe they did talk about it and she doesn’t remember?? does she have amnesia?? is she losing time?? did they get married and nobody thought to tell her??
and meanwhile poor bellamy is stressed as fuck because the signals she’s sending are so mixed she’s got to be fucking with him. does she have some weird complex about her wolf form?? like she only wants him around when they’re shifted?? what bullshit, this is exactly why he and octavia stayed omegas all these years, ugh.
And okay, Clarke had a pack once, yeah. But then her dad died (murdered, he was murdered) and she left (she was also kind of a little banished) and she could never stand to live there anymore but being a lone wolf is hard, so so hard.
So it’s lucky for her that she stumbles on Jasper and Monty pretty quickly, all things considered (they maybe kind of pissed off a literal mama bear and Clarke maybe kind of saved their asses), and they’re on their own two so they kind of adopt each other and they’re total goofs but they don’t expect her to be anything other than their friend and they make her smile, so. (As far as they’re concerned, Clarke is just a badass, full stop. She’s not particularly large, either as a human or a wolf, but she’s fast and fierce and she looks out for them, and who needs a ‘proper’ pack anyway?)
Next come Finn, and then Raven, and they run into them separately and Clarke kind of has a thing with both of them and then finds out that Finn and Raven are a thing and welp, that’s kind of awkward, but it’s kind of too late, oops she cares, and they never had anyone either so yeah the pack grows.
Then Clarke goes out for a moonlit stroll on her own, cuz she loves her pack, she does, but sometimes she just needs time to herself, so she’s just taking a walk in the woods all wolfy and such, and maybe catching herself a nice rabbit or two, then suddenly!! a wolf! a strange wolf! And yeah they totally startle each other, but then Clarke tilts her head and the strange wolf comes over, sniffing and stuff. And then he totally steals her rabbit!! But he doesn’t run, he just kind of crouches, watching her expectantly, and then she moves towards him and he’s off and she follows, and he’s fast but she’s faster and also sneakier so she runs up a little hill and literally jumps on top of him so they end up rolling, kicking and chewing on each other’s ears, and Clarke comes out on top, blithely steps all over him, and proceeds to smugly trot back to her rabbit.
And then Bellamy headbutts her from behind and welp they spend the rest of the night basically playing tag (wolf tag!!) in the woods
And when she finally gets back the next day, they’ve got dear legs roasting on a fire and Jasper’s hovering all ‘where were you all night?’, ‘we thought something happened to you!’ and he won’t quit sniffing her so eventually she just grabs him and starts noogying him because really what else is he expecting her to do. And right in mid-noogy a twig snaps and they all whip their heads up and oh there’s Bellamy and Octavia
And Octavia’s looking at all of them, eyes darting back and forth, looking like she’s just barely holding herself from jumping up and down, and then her eye zero in on the meat above the fire and well Clarke’s not one to turn someone away, especially not with that (familiar) hungry look in their eyes.
(Bellamy doesn’t look anywhere but at her. She doesn’t notice. Yet.)
