“What are you doing in Newt’s tree house?” Simon called from below.

“Being melodramatic sulking,” came tersely back.

“And that would be why?”

“I feel like it.”

“Newt has these cute little clawed feet to climb up there and you don’t, Andy.”

“Rope ladder.”

“Oh. Then ‘what light’ and all that, let down your ladder. I can make it all better, whatever it is.”

“Sulking.”

“Ooooh yes. I’ve got this magic tongue that flickers and pokes into interesting places and I’m supple enough to poke elsewhere while doing it. Guaranteed mood adjustment. When does Newt get out of school?”

“Hours.”

There were lots of complements on Newt’s Halloween costume. Exclamations on how cute he was and how inventive his parents were to dress him as a worm poking his head from an apple. Of course the apple was actually a small pumpkin but Newt had grown and an apple wasn’t big enough anymore.

“I cuuuuuute,” Newt cooed wiggling in his bath water.

“Yes you were and are,” Andy agreed, “very cute.”

“Cute enough to nibble on,” Simon smiled though he was contemplating nibbling on a different fruit, more of a sensitive plum shaped fruit. Newt should fall asleep early tonight.

“Newt. Neeeeeeew- t. Where are you, baby? It’s dinner time.”
Andy walked carefully through the house, just in case Newt had fallen asleep on the carpet. Newt’d gotten much more capable of movement but he refused to put his son in a glass cage. Besides they’d Newt proofed the house. The main problem was not stepping on him.

Finally he saw his son. Up on the back of the sofa ‘catching some rays’ was Newt who stretched with his mouth open in a leisurely yawn.

“How did you get get up there, baby and why didn’t you answer me?”

There was a hiss for an answer.

“What did you say to me young man?” Andy tried not to take it too personally but needed to be stern. Newt was young and maybe exploring what he could get away with but this wasn’t the norm for him.

A growl, followed by another hiss, answered.

“Where did you get that from?! That is not acceptable behavior. I treat you with respect and you had better treat me with respect… or ...else.”

The hiss was uncertain this time. Read more... )

The voice could have come from anyone in the milling students,“Hey! What do you call a blond witch in an institution of higher learning?”

“Don’t. Don’t give it credence.” Andy had his hand latched tightly onto Simon’s forearm.

“You aren’t a witch and you are,if not smarter than that idiot.”

“Idiot call Daddy bad person?” Newt had raised his small head above the edge of his pouch carrier stretching up to see around.

“No, that is not what the person said,” Andy answered. “He’s just behaving badly.”

“Oh... ‘K”

“He’s asleep ... finally,” was furtively whispered.

A hushed, “Good. Get the wine, I’ll go light the candles.”

Two figures separated to their tasks, to meet out at the pool for one of their rare romantic interlude.

“That was a good idea to wear him out at the zoo.”

“He tried growling at the lions and I swear they were laughing, roaring back. Newt squealed, ‘Look squirrel’, at the bear.”

Andy’s chuckle was cut off by a kiss and smiling decided naked Simons were a good thing to have in the pool. He opened his thighs.

“Daddies?”

'damn it.'

After consideration and discussion about diapering and if Newt has been in his human form yet (he hasn’t), it was decided that so far Newt’s diaper was more like a bandage wrapped around his serpentine body. From all that arose this.

“Alright, Newt my little eel stop wriggling like an … eel.” Andy sometimes thought about taping Newt to the changing pad just so it would be easier to swap out his bandage of a diaper.

“Eeeeeeeeel. I eeeeeeeeeel.” Newt writhed around trying to escape.

“No, you’re not,” Andy sang.” You’re my skink of a son Newt. Who I love very, very, very much but if you don’t hold still ……”

“Skiiink. I skiiiink.”

Andy sighed. “Newt please hold still. If you were house trained like your Father, you could run around without your diaper but you aren’t.”

“I am not house trained,” was said firmly.

The wail of a small child got closer, Newt. How was he supposed to do yoga, or try anyway, to relieve stress if the cause of that stress was currently crying.

“Um, Newt is hungry,” Simon began, “and … Newt, baby, Daddy Andy is busy right now can we delay the crying for now?”

“Hungy!”

“I know but Daddy Andy is doing something, see?” Obviously Simon had pointed a small skink in the line of sight of Andy.

Sighing, Andy walked himself back up to a point where he could roll himself into a standing position. There was an unusually quiet snake-familiar in the room and a giggling small skink who happened to be his supposedly hungry son.

“Well everything seems to have come out alright, Andy.” Jennifer smiled, “Even if you had to do it all yourself without a doctor present.”

Simon sighed in relief as the onus shifted away from his being Parentis in absentia during the birth, too soon. “There is the matter of how the labor went though. I’ve never witnessed a familiar-snake birth, perhaps Simon could help.”

“I... wasn’t there.”

“Weren’t you?” Jennifer’s brows raised. “I thought you were concerned about the safety of Andy and your child.”

“He’s apologized and I can tell you,” Andy offered. “I was right there after all.”

Andy narrowed his eyes, “Hmmm, animal, vegetable, or mineral, which is an asshole? ”

“Animal,” Simon answered quickly, “and I sorry. Really sorry. And don’t swear in front of our child.”

“Newt is too young to pick up words yet.”

“Asssssssssho,” said a little mouth around Andy’s nipple.

“Whaaa-?”

“Told you,” Simon smirked and then straightened his face. “Really sorry. I missed our son’s birth and I failed to be there when you needed me, though you did it well all by yourself, but still I’m sorry.”

“You should be,” was directed at Simon, “and Newt don’t say that word.”

“See, I told you I was just constipated.”

All that Simon responded with was, “Huh.”

“You were all keyed up for being a Daddy tonight, weren’t you?”

Simon just threw a glance over at Andy and kept walking, walking fast enough that it was difficult for Andy to keep up until he ended up out of breath and bent over with his hands on his knees.

There was a nice large rock just off to the side that looked inviting, just until he caught his breath and the cramping on his right side became more manageable, Andy told himself. Except it didn’t, not exactly.
There was a faint blip in his abdomen as if gas had shifted and relief was in sight.

“Oh, finally. Maybe the gas will push you out and Simon will love me again.”

Pressure built, in that way that flatulence does as it tries to escape. This felt like there was something there pressing to get out. Andy tightened down. In the snit that Simon was in, he wouldn’t put it past Simon to make him walk home rather than take home in the car a former lover who’d fouled his pants.

The trip to the Academy’s medical center was short and a waste of time, Andy thought.
He wasn’t in labor.
And the doctor had this weird thing going on, like she was going to perform some sacred ritual over his belly.
And her hands were cold.

“Jennifer is your regular doctor, I understand.” She smiled as she felt Andy’s tummy. “My name’s Suzan. So I understand you might be in labor. Snake shifter baby?” She glanced at Simon.

“Yes. Andy says his stomach is uncomfortable.”

“It’s just constipation.” Andy rolled his eyes.

“So how long have you had this ‘constipation’?”

This is what Andy was reading
“Simon, are there any newts around here?” Andy looked over at his husband and answered himself, “Don’t know, love. Why don’t you look it up yourself.” “Okay I’ll do that,” and he pulled up another window on his laptop.

“What?” Simon blinked. “What did you say?”

Andy’s “Nothing Simon. Go back to doing whatever,” was interrupted by arms sneaking around him and a snuffling behind his ear.

“Sorry love. Was reading about baby care. Little guy might turn to human right away or stay snake or with a combination of both parents features. Think of it a little snake with tiny little arms on him.”

Simon had a bemused smile on his face. Quite adorkable in Andy’s opinion.

“I was asking you and am now looking up newts that might be in this area.”

“Newts,” Simon’s mouth took on a grimace. “Nasty tasting things. Still edible though.”

“SIMON! They’re poisonous. What if the baby gets ahold of one?”

“Probably get a tummy ache and won’t do that again.”

How a Deadly Camping Trip Revealed an Arms Race Between Snakes and Newts
Snakes' incredible resistance to newt poison started before either creature even existed.

By Matt Soniak AUGUST 11, 2016

Left, a common garter snake and right, a rough-skinned newt. (Photos, from left: Sharon Day/shutterstock.com; Yuval Helfman/shutterstock.com)

On the West Coast, newts and snakes are locked in an arms race—a tit-for-tat battle of adaptations for better weapons in the former and stronger defenses in the latter. It’s a textbook example of coevolution, and it came to light because of an urban legend.

Three friends, the story goes, went hunting in the Oregon Coast Range one weekend and never came home. Police later found them dead at their campsite with no signs of violence or struggle. They also found a fourth body: a rough-skinned newt (Taricha granulosa) that had been accidentally boiled with the water used to make a pot of coffee.

Edmund “Butch” Brodie Jr. first heard about the mysterious deaths in the 1960s as an undergraduate at Western Oregon University. He’d gone to his biology professor looking for a research project to work on, and the professor told him the tale—which he’d heard growing up—and suggested Brodie look into whether or not the newts were poisonous.

“I can’t make it that far right now,” Simon looked down at his belly.

An irritated scowl formed on Andy’s face, “you’re not the one eating for two…” and hit Simon when he put on an innocent expression.

“Nope, I’m not but you aren’t either. I’d say only one and a twelfth right now. Come on, the walk to yon concealing copse will settle our meal and maybe my dulcetly spoken words twill stir a renewing appetite.”

“I’m pregnant, Simon.”

“Doctor said playing ‘hide the snake’ isn’t forbidden.”

“After which I’d have to carry back a limp snake.”

“See. Romantic.”

“If you wouldst lief weild an axe as bear this bairn… What the hell,” Andy looked up from the parchment at Simon.

“Don’t panic,” Simon’s eyes, in Andy’s opinion, were the ‘little panicky’. “It’s just if you’d rather I bear and birth, damn it now I’m doing it. It’s a spell that switches the child to another just in case events,” Simon paused, “change.”

Andy’s hands stroked down over his belly, actually considering; he’d be amused later; savoring now the love behind Simon’s fear. Finally shaking his head Andy smiled, “No. I’ve got this this time. Maybe next time.”

“Simon, am I oviparous, ovoviviparous or viviparous as far as giving birth?”

“I wish you’d asked Jennifer, your OBGYN, that.”

“Well?”

Sighing,“the last one, same as humans, Andy, or I think so.” Shaking his head, “I didn’t think I’d have to explain sex until our child was older.”

“I AM NOT a CHILD and no I don’t need the sex education lecture. I just want to know if I’m going to be passing eggs, or egg shells pieces afterwards or if our child is going to come oozing out in a burst of fluid.”

Simon paled, “he’ll come out without a shell. You have to understand, I was very young at the time and don’t remember much other than being squeezed out into the world rather suddenly and missing my parent’s warmth around me. It was traumatic.”

Arms surrounded Simon. “I love you Simon.” On a mischievous note, “want to be enclosed by me to show how much? Just a part of you, you understand, a certain snaky part of you.”

“Scales, I thought you’d never ask,” Simon smiled and then sobered as if the smile hadn’t been truth, “I love you too.”

“You’re an idiot, you know that don’t you? Do you remember that video I caught you watching?”

“Um, I can explain…”

“No need love. I’ve been doing some researching too, how else did you think I knew about the various ways snakes can be born? I was thinking, when I’m closer to giving birth maybe you could partially shift and use one of your hemipenes instead?”

“We are following Jennifer’s advice,” Simon said firmly. “We are not risking you or our child. I can put you before any of my baser needs.”

“Baser needs? You’ve been reading those historical romances again.” Andy kissed the corner of Simon’s jaw smiling, “you romantic snake you.”

“Hush. I’m a big bad snake familiar and don’t you forget it,” was spoiled by Simon’s leaning more into Andy’s embrace.

“MY big bad snake familiar, who happens to like watching snake porn and reading romances, and that’s just between you and me, love.”

“And what are you going to do if he turns into a snake in the reverend’s hands while he’s doing it?”

“So okay, we’ll practice first. He’ll probably giggle through the whole thing… I hope.”

“We’ve got a pool. How about we practice before he’s born.”

“You just want to get me naked.”

“Ye-es. Anything wrong with that?”

Much later… “We could always wait until he’s older, I suppose. When he has more control over his changing?”

Simon smiled slowly, “I don’t know. This practicing seems good. Might even work. Just takes practice. Lots and lots of practice.”

“There’s only one?” Simon sounded almost disappointed.

“Simon, you’re being an ass,” Jennifer scolded as if Andy wasn’t lying on the examining table, with only a sheet strategically placed, with ice cold gel spread over his belly and a bit lower. The ultrasound wand pressing into him wasn’t too uncomfortable if you didn’t mind someone testing to see if you were done yet and forgetting that they’d left the probe stuck in place even if it didn’t break skin.

“Simon,” Andy tried reasonably and quite frankly, though seeing a small curled up shape in the television monitor was interesting if surreal, he wanted back into this conversation. He coughed. “Let’s try one for now and see how it goes on and we can always try for another later. It’s not as if we’ve got a choice in the matter. The little guy is there all alone and seems healthy. He is healthy, isn’t he?!”

“Perfectly,” Jennifer answered still staring menacingly at Simon.

“I don’t want anything to happen to Andy. It’s not like males are meant to get pregnant.”

“That is not what you were telling me when we did the pregnancy test thingy, Simon. And yes, I know I’m not a sea horse but Jennifer says everything is good.”

Jennifer turned and thankfully to Andy’s mind removed the wand, wiping off the gel with a tissue. “First time fathers can be asses. Don’t pay him any mind. One is just right, the spell worked just fine, and you seem to be handling the pregnancy wonderfully. There is no reason to fear. Still, you’re human. So we’ll monitor you closely. Appointments every couple weeks, with blood tests. Nothing stressful unless you’re afraid of needles but then you’ve a snake familiar for a mate so I imagine that you’re used to ‘unnatural ‘ things being inserted quite often.” She was smirking as she said that last bit and Andy felt his lips drawing up into a smile that displayed teeth. Oh for sharp pointy fangs. It appeared that doctors, even female ones could be obnoxious asses too.

With a grin Jennifer patted his tummy, “There really isn’t any danger to you or the sprog, not even if the two of you want to continue with that,” she coughed, “insertion business. The little guy is well protected. He’s got a shell which he’ll slough out of before birthing. That’ll make things much easier for the both of you ... and maybe even Simon.”

A doctor’s appointment was scheduled because Simon, for all the ‘it’s perfectly natural’, wanted to make sure everything was okay.

Smiling, Andy ran his eyes over the snake familiar he was creating a family with, who was perched nervously on the chair next to him, fidgeting.

“You know you could be a little more excited about this.”

“I think you’re doing a good enough job of that for both of us. Let’s hope the kids take after me.”

“Simon. Andrew. You’re next.” Luckily Jennifer was a friend and knew Simon, projecting a calming spell at him. “Well? Come on in.”

It's the figures on the cover that I'm going hmmmm about.
Theoretically the pose of the female figure is so she can keep her balance while being tipped off center while being kissed. Also one could romantically loop a leg around the person tipping you backwards which would bring pelvises into frontal alignment.

hmmmm So what if you bring up the inside leg instead, thereby not bringing pelvises into contact, will the balance then you tip over to the side and on to the ground? Does this instead signify that you want a rear approach and you're on the ground already.....

"Andy?"
"Yes, I'm in heat. Get on with it, Simon."
