    Okay, okay, okay. I'm gonna list headcanons here, my personal ones.

    - If the Trader could speak through the helmet, I bet he'd call the Stranger "sweetheart".

    - The Stranger is a sarcastic, determined, bold and quite sad fellow that just trying to get to his home where he may or may not actually have a partner anymore.

    - The Stranger's wife/gf (if she actually exists) might leave because of the Stranger's long, long absence, taking Szeurk (or however you spell it) with her.

    - The Wolfman and the Stranger don't get along too well. The latter usually hesitant in the man's requests and strange behaviour but tolerates it given that they have to work with him since he has information about the Docter.

    - The Stranger would give mercy to the Docter, since killing him and others are against their morals, even if they have to.

    - The Stranger is the only one with two different pronouns, he/they, in the Forest since some people think they are male while others don't know what it is.

    - The Trader is quite wholesome and kind, genuinely wanting to help them but being cautious.

    - Only the Stranger catches feelings first but doesn't act on it for quite some time (most likely start of staying in the Silent Forest to some days in the Old Woods, a handful of weeks I'd say). The Trader didn't until nearly the time they acted on it to experiment how he would react.

    - The Musician gets adopted by the Trader and the Stranger over time, since he doesn't go back to his parents' house but feels guilty for it anyway.

    - Piotrek actually survives for his dream and doesn't crash horribly.

    - The Wolfman is a jackass at best, though can be helpful at certain times.

    - The Trader survives the swamp and its inhabitants, hiding amongst the trees like he always does.

    - The Stranger enjoys making plenty of jokes, even if they can't speak them.

    - (Weird headcanon this one, but I personally enjoy it and it's a way around being mute) The Stranger can make sounds to portray their emotions: trilling, cat chirping, chuff, snarl, growl, hiss, murp (dunno if there's an actual term for it but I know you know cat murps). Only the Trader knows what they mean, while the Musician slowly catches on with a bit of help.

    - The Stranger's main choices of weapons are a shovel, a villager's pitchfork, pistols and rifles.

    - They find the Mushroom Granny soon enough and doesn't eat her like some animal, instead helping her for her own request of getting rid of the villagers trying to eat her.

    - Normally, doing that is against his personal beliefs but he does it anyway, thinking to themself that this is a better way to die than to either strave or go insane.

    - They enjoy the sweater she knits them greatly, chirping insistently whenever they wear it.

    - They meet the Elphants soon enough afterwards, of course getting called a leper for their appearance but they help them anyways.

    - And lastly (so far) the Stranger cannot, for the life of them, take a compliment that's thrown their way.

    They are weird, personal headcanons, and technically not headcanons, just a handful of facts there that I believe and like. But I hope whoever reads this enjoys it. I may rb more later on ^^

    #dusty's randoms#darkwood #too tired to tag the rest im sorry #but uh- those are my headcanons... yeah #also: i am writing a dw fanfic. though its going to be a LONG while before anyone sees it given that i set a goal of 12-13k words #and so far ive gotten around 4k lol #ill post it here (a link prolly) and on ao3 (full ass thing) so i guess be ready later on in the future? maybe? mayhaps? i dunno lol

      One of Dustin’s favorite tunes to sing is “Mother, I’m here”, an odd lil’ ditty that, to the uninformed listener, sounds like a melody about a reunion between someone and their mother that’s been made a little more dour by the bard. The fact that most don’t understand it enough to take it beyond face value means he can play it around others with little repercussions beyond comments about it sounding sad. Still, he often sings it when he’s alone.

      It’s a completely different story if the listener knows even a little about his home life, and it only gets worse with the more they learn. It’s a reunion song alright. But not the good kind.

    #{Dusty Headcanons}#{Dusty Things}#{Headcanons} #|| Listen. I love Bastion. #And this song works beautifully in the game's context and with Dusty's whole thing.

    Headcanon | Dustin’s home.

      If anyone came to visit the young hunter’s home while the sun was overhead, you could see how neglected its maintenance is. He was never actively taught how to fix anything other than a few necessities, so whenever the roof starts sagging inward, some of the village folk have to make repairs. Unfortunately, the fresh wood or repaired roofing next to the original materials tends to only highlight further how poorly its being handled by Dustin.

       The plant growth on it doesn’t help. Moss grows on it in many places, ivy grows up and around its sides, mushrooms around certain parts, there’s wildflowers growing from some of the roof’s edges... it’s pretty to look at, but compared to the other homes, some of which have been around for a century... yeah, his place is a train wreck. Inside, however, it’s not as bad. Peeling paint and old, exposed wood at the worst.

      In his Genshin verse, though... if you saw it in broad daylight, the only evidence of it not being abandoned is the sound of his lyre, some singing, candlelight, and him actively living there.

      Not like he notices anyway. He wakes up around sunset, does his thing until it starts getting light out, and spends the early-to-late morning inside. In both cases, the cabin would probably be condemned by today’s standards.

      Listen. Dustin loathes the Fatui among many other things, but if this dork somehow found his way into Inazuma and accidentally stumbled across a Mirror Maiden, or one found her way into Mondstadt, he’d give her his cloak if he doesn’t get attacked.

      With pale skin like that, doing whatever it is they do or just going out is more than likely unpleasant, but with that uniform? That’s a guaranteed sunburn, and it’s only worse when working with reflective surfaces and water like they do. He’d hate the uniform they have to wear more than his bias would drive him to hate her because of her job, and he’d donate his cloak to help her cover up.

      What would come from the act of kindness wouldn’t matter to him, getting another cloak made wouldn’t be difficult, and he’d more than likely be open with his dislike of the Fatui. However, sparing some poor broad from that brand of suffering is justification enough for the act.

    #{Genshin Impact | Dusty} #{Headcanons} #|| This is one of the few circumstances where he'd be kind to a member of the Fatui #Crack jokes or think of this however you want #but it'd be hell to be in that position

      In his Genshin verse, Dustin only wants two things in his life; to find out what happened to his brother that caused him to vanish all those years ago, or to write or learn a melody that can bring about storms. He knows that both are nigh-impossible feats to attempt, but with the numerous mind-boggling events that have transpired over the past year, things that were ‘never going to happen’ seemed a whole lot more likely.

      If he learns the truth behind the disappearance ten years ago, there’s a 50/50 chance that he might be able to move on with his life now that he would have closure, or he’ll go croak in some form out in the wilds.

      If he was taught or miraculously writes a song on the lyre that can generate a storm, be it ferocious winds or black clouds and thunderbolts, in at least the area surrounding him, he’d play it almost every day in the confines of his home. Storms are one of the few things he finds solace in despite them being potentially catastrophic with a rotting cabin like his. It’d effectively be like putting a bandage on a bullet wound, but at least it would help a little.

    #{Genshin Impact | Dusty} #{Dusty Headcanons}#{Headcanons} #|| He just wants some form of peace #Be it through peace of mind or a song that embodies him through howling winds and lightning. #Is the latter dramatic? #Absolutely but he's also a fan of the dramatic

      Dustin, for reasons undiagnosed, suffers from auditory hallucinations at times, typically when alone though it has happened in the presence of others. They can range anywhere from hearing someone call out his name when there’s nobody around to hearing vicious mockery or full-on monologues from people he knows, deceased or otherwise. The few he’s told this about tend to say it’s a god or some demon trying to talk to him, the voices of the dead, and so on and so forth. Surprising most of the said people, their thoughts on it usually led to him cutting contact with them.

      Given the state of his living space, his nocturnal-focused sleep schedule, and his poor mental state, it’s hard to pin down exactly what causes it, though he blames it on the divine and devilish.

      Regardless of the verse, there’s one song in Dustin’s catalogue that makes him emotionally break down when he sings it because it hits a little too close to home for him. Of course, that’s why he makes one of those ones he plays either on an extremely rough night or in the privacy off his home. Though given what the song is about and how it can be interpreted...

      I don’t think anyone would be wrong to say he’s got some problems.

    Sebastian loves Abigail’s guinea pig, David, and often has him in his lap or plays with him whenever he visits her. The little guy enjoys slipping into Seb’s hoodie pocket and falling asleep, and once or twice, Sebastian’s almost left with him by accident.

    So, he has something of an affinity for smaller animals in general.

    #ooc#headcanon #not that he can't love other ones like dusty #he does #but he has more personal experience with smaller ones #me yeeting seb into winnie's bunny coop when #he needs that good animal therapy #and void chickens. he'd lose his MIND with void chickens.

    American Dragon Jake Long Headcanon #3: Jake ends up pretty tall as an adult dragon but he always keeps his head at face level so he can chat with his friends without switching back and forth

    Buuut he also keeps his puffed-up posturing so it ends up with his neck doing this big s-shape

    Most of the magical creatures he interacts with appreciate him getting down on their level but the Dragon Council is always on him about his atrocious posture

    this makes him double-down on it

    #American dragon jake long #headcanons #which might also involve dusty memories of the show #what do you mean it's been fifteen years #anywho polishing up dusty memories don't mind me

    Tag dump! I’ll make up unique tags for my characters I believe. If there’s guest characters in any of my ficlets/drabbles then I’ll probably just tag them as their name unless they’re special.
