in my opinion, an auspistice can:
- keep kismeses’ hate from becoming platonic
- and therefore keep them from killing each other
- keep matesprits’ pity from reaching around into hate
- keep troll A who already has a kismesis from blackflirting with troll B
- keep two trolls in general from growing caliginous
That’s quite all right, Anonymouse! You’re an adorable human with lots of fun new customs (and strange and interesting all-red romance… though shipping pawsibilities might be a little more limited…) so it’s no wonder you’re asking about our complex system of pity and hate! Let me help you a bit!
To those of you humans less informed than our Anonymouse friend, auspistices are there pretty much as mediators when it comes to two trolls, especially if they’d end up being pretty destructive if they went fully black. Without them, a relationship could even grow violent rather than simply caliginous. An auspistice calms betw33n the other two parties without any purrsonal benefit.
Let me try to explain it in human terms… It isn’t an exact correlation, I’m afuraid, but I’ll try!
Say you have two best furriends. You’re furriends with both of them. But they’re pretty turbulent with one another if you’re not there. You’re always in the middle of it all and try to settle things down when all thr33 of you are together. You’d be a human auspistice! The only diffurence betw33n being a human auspistice and a troll auspistice, is that we still view it as a type of romance. Oh. And we base it on hate. Not furriendship. And to act as an auspistice is to be involved in a relationship. Human furriendships don’t take it further than that.
Now that I’ve explained that, let’s talk about the auspistice in question. I think humans can relate to this. Sometimes, your two furriends can ignore your attempts at trying to mediate betw33n them. It can become very trying, even exhausting, and sometimes an auspistice n33ds to just let go for their own sake. If they don’t want to auspistice anymore they’re fr33 to go on their own way to let the caliginous pair go fully black if they’re going to, consequences be damned.
Now… as fur ashen cheating? Well. I purrsonally don’t s33 it as cheating, really. The auspistice is the one generally who initiates the relationship (though not every time!) An auspistice isn’t so d33ply committed as, say, matesprits or kismesises are. It’s something they do beclaws they want to do it. And some trolls act as auspistice fur a lot of other trolls. Beclaws they like to do it. And hopefurly beclaws they’re pawrticularly GOOD at it! But if the auspisticing is not wanted by either of the other two trolls they’re out of luck. So there’s also that!
Some trolls, howevfur, can try and butt into an established relationship to establish an auspisticism in one of the partners and switch up the purrfectly fine romance already there… This is an example of quadrant vacillation and it’s a whooooole other story, kinda rude, kinda normal, and the topic of lots of movies and books, but I won’t get into it right now!
Let me just tell you… efury romantic relationship is a diffurent thing. Mileage may vary! And so on! But the scenario I spoke of usually how ashen romances work fur us.
This is just my opinion, though. Sorry it’s so complicated! I hope it helps!
