listening the Good Omens audiobook has the opposite effect to reading the Coraline audiobook, because, the Coraline audiobook reminds you why the dark was feared and makes you want to renounce all buttons, while listening to the Good Omens audiobook reminds you how many times Aziraphale says, "my dear" or some variation upon it to Crowley and makes you want to re-watch the entire show and have a little snack. in short, if you don't like being terrified before bed, listen to the Good Omens audiobook.

The new Laika movie announcement is a huge relief for me. I loved the studios' early trend of mysterious urban fantasy stories and the more they strayed from that (especially missing link) the less I liked it.
I'm not super familiar with the Wildwood book series but from everything I know, it sounds like a perfect fit for the creators of Coraline and Paranorman. Can't wait to see more info on it.

How would belsire react if darling gifted him a autumn themed scarf that they made?
Mister mans would LOVE it?? Considering The Belsire literally creates everything in his realm, he doesn't expect anything to be made for him. What's the need? What's the use? He doesn't expect anything from you except for obedience, so he doesn't understand why you would make something especially for him-- especially since it would take more care, considering his height and strange features.
The way his eyes go wide after seeing something you created, gives the impression that he never really has recieved a gift. Of course the creature has to keep his image, and will stifle his internal reaction. Leaving you with a blank face, The Belsire will ignore how his legs grow weak from the surprise and teensie bit of happiness he'd never admit.
"What.. is this?"
You'll never find him outright talking about the gift, maybe a subtle thank you will be given after he receives it; if you're lucky. But he shows his appreciation through actions instead of words. Any time of the day, he'll be wearing it, switching the temperature to grow cold in order for him to continue to wrap the scarf around himself. Of course if he catches you staring, he'll rip it off immediately. The Belsire does not enjoy being observed, especially if he knows you have some sort of 'power' over him. And he most certainly sees your affections and gifts as power.
After receiving your gift, The Belsire will be quietly kinder. He doesn't want you to assume he's being gentle after receiving the gift, even if that's the case. A way to get on his good side is to be genuine and doting. After dealing with so many different meals (cough cough victims), he's learned to smell a lie from a mile away. If you lie to him or are disingenuous, he'll cut the calm act and tell it to you straight.
"I was going to be gentle with you before, but I can't tolerate this behavior. Do you want to be broken down?"
BUT if you play nice with him, going along with his games of house and dress up, he might cut you a little slack; maybe spare your life for a little while longer. Even if its just for you to suffer, and him to force you to give him more gifts.
The Belsire is by no means fitting of the word affectionate, but if you desire anything, he'll give in. That gift was enough to get something out of him, even if its small like the ability to go outside or converse with the creatures he's made.
make sure to be straightforward and truthful when giving your gifts and asking for favors afterwards, otherwise The Belsire might make your words turn back to bite you.
