Hello. I'm a talent scout and i would your permission to copy an past that Spike pose to make my cover for my FanFiction "The Adventures of Spike and Toothless" and i promise i will give you some of the credit.
But she's like his adoptive mother. On the other hoof, they know each other from childhood, so maybe they are more like siblings? I don't remember whether it was or it was not said how long they have been living together.
i guess octavia is pretty good, i havent seen her much, so i wouldnt exactly share your same enthusiasm about her. im more of a apple-dash and twilight fan, not the shipping just the characters in general (although the shipping is good stuff)
