Disclaimer: I am nothing more than an avid Miyazaki worshipper. Fanfiction is imitation which is the highest form of flattery. This is true for every single drabble in this series--nay, every fic I've ever written.
Early on, Moro tried to make it as clear as possible to San that even though she wasn't and never would be a wolf, Moro would love her just as much as her brothers, she was still just as much a part of the family, and she was especially just as capable as her brothers were. However, there were two things that Moro had to put her paw down on, two things that only actual wolves could do: howling and mating. San was not to ever do either of those things, as she was not an actual wolf, no matter how hard she tried.
Moro did her best to make San understand this, but it's hard to get a three-year-old to pay attention when she's chasing a tail that isn't there.
More to follow. These are just the random things that popped into my head as I was watching Princess Mononoke one day. Hope you like, if you do let me know. Also, I bask in the glow from my supreme Beta-deity, Esbee, who thought of the title and helped me make these silly snippets into something one might even call okay.
