    Since Curley is deaf and has trouble reading past Dmitri’s stutter sometimes and Dmitri’s blind so he can’t fully grasp ASL, they have a more intimate way of communicating when they’re too lazy to write or struggle past a verbal conversation. 

    They managed to create their own sign language but they sign it into each other’s hands so Dmitri can read the shapes by feeling them. He used to do the same with his late Stanley, who was also deaf. 

    #ooc #another reason why they're always so close together and can often be seen holding hands in case they want to talk with each other #and one of the many reasons dmitri has a huge crush on curley #headcanons#anetherealtale #deaf!stanley #dmitri can sense shapes but asl is often signed too quickly or the hand shapes are too vague for him to make out #so he can sense someone's emotions/vibes/location in the room but he can't focus on small details like fingers moving in certain ways

    X @anetherealtale  

    “¿Disculpe?” The demoness scoffed, the audacity of him rejecting her gift offended her. Stepping forward as he stepped back, she placed a hoof on the man’s head, threatening to crush his head in if she came any closer. “Correct me if I’m wrong but you did say you didn’t want to starve. Even pleading to me that you would do anything to have some meat.”   She leaned her weight forward, making the guy scream even louder. “If you can’t give me anything, give me the reassurance that my children’s work of getting this pig isn’t going to waste.”

    before the new year all the drafts will be answered from all blogs, and hopefully the relationship pages will also be updated (as they're desperately in need of that)

    thegrimdarkblog is currently mostly inactive due to more editing on my behalf, but as you've probably seen, alice is happy to make her rounds and taunt people, so she'll be present occaisonally

    The 'Von' that the people of Lichtell carry in their surnames means that they (or nowadays, their ancestors) seized, conquered or live near a certain place.

    Their planet is seperated into multiple thousands of sections (kind of like countries), and each of them have names, like for example Cannes, which is a very wild but fruitful stretch of land that Maelle's ancestors conquered.

    Since Maelle still has Von Cannes in her name, it means her family tree never moved from it and defended it against other folks. It's a symbol of power if your last name is still exactly like the name of your location, because it means your family managed to keep it safe over the years.

    The Von Sales, Von Vos (Hank) and Von Reva (Easter and Annie) families wandered over the years, so their surnames changed. 

    Vos, Sales and Reva are broken down versions of the actual places. Their ancestors either traded or lost parts of their land.

    Diamongal is more of a mishmash of names, meaning Dmitri's ancestors were often defeated by stronger families and thus had been forced to change their name.

    Stellan didn’t want to stick around for Jonathan to come and ask for explanations or whether or not they needed a room.

    He grabbed Stanley and led him out, back into the abandoned Office he had recently claimed. (Stanley made sure to throw out all the alcohol he could find, replacing it with fresh boiled tea)

    Arvan stormed off to curl up in the Broom Closet. Dmitri took the chance too, turned into a lil ball of light and returned to his Office to relax in the late summer sun. 

    Ezra was the only one who stayed. He made himself a cup of coffee, fixed his hair and hung out with Molly who took to painting Ezra in theater attire as they chatted idly about greek plays.

    “Yeah, I was just thinking. Hey, Dmitri, won’t your Office get really really fucking cold in the winter, since it’s connected directly to the Outside?”

    Some lesser known characters, for reference.

    Ryan Von Sales - Jon’s older brother. He’s an asshole, and not-so-secretly the shame of the family. Their grandparents take great pride in him though, since they’re not any better. His eyes are green and he has telepathetic powers. 

    Easter Von Reva - a doctor from Lichtell, who looked in several times to try and study Dmitri because of his mutation. Several people prevented her from doing so, though, which she’s pretty miffied about. Her eyes are blood red and she’s cold, but not unkind towards humans.

    Reyes Spencer - Bradley’s little sibling. Uses they/he pronouns. Bradley’s mother married (not remarried, since his mom and dad never actually married) someone else, a nicer man. 

    Annemeike Von Reva - a so far unmentioned character. Befriended Stellan when she’s got him out of a hairy situation once. She’s the complete opposite of Easter, a pendler in a self built spaceship that also delivers packages here and there. Her eyes are gray and she’s rather happy with her life, despite her younger sister’s disapproval of her job.

    maelle is the only one who actually knows whats going to happen with dmitri, when she had him in her temple, she examined him a little (and also ordered alice find a way to remove any trace of him from her body immediately) 

    jonathan doesnt know what happens to mutants, he remains rather naive about it, because his parents didnt think it was a necessary knowledge

    maelle’s father never held back with these things, though. he never really thought to spare maelle from any gruesome details

    Jonathan and Dmitri could become pretty good friends if they bond over being forest kids

    They both grew up right by the woods and spent 97% of their time there
