This is my special gift. If you notice it is a bat the size of a loveseat. The bat is a stuffed animal custom made for me. It is a familiar from the game Kingdom of Loathing. I have played KoL for 4 years and been a member of the clan Iocaine Powder for 3 of those years.
My clannies got together and commissioned this for me from another player who sews plushies of in-game items. Now, back in November when I went to KoLumbus (a KoL Meet in Columbus, Ohio.) I feel in love and bid on a tiny animal like this.
My clannie, Lauren, who was with me noticed this and remembered it and coordinated me getting my own giant cheshire bat.
Sleeping with the bat and with the lap blanket the wife of one of my clannies made me. Isn’t it pretty? And it is so warm. I am blessed with having so many dear friends from KoL who have been helping me through all of this cancer and cancer surgery crap.
