Hi Vic so I'm making a fanfiction about your amazing Elf!AU but it's not fluff.. It's angst and I got questions (I'm sorry. Please don't be mad at me!) 1.What would have happen to Phil's flower if he died? Will it die as well? 2.How will the elves do their funeral ceremony? Do they just bury it in a coffin? Put it on a boat wih lots of flowers? 3.Other than Dark and Forest elves is there any more kinds of elves? 4. How will Dan cope for his loss? 5. What era/time does the Elf AU take place?
Oh God I didn’t want this AU to be angsty D:
1. The flower would die with him.
2. The elves would probably cremate bodies, and spread their ashes into the ground, to kinda act as compost I guess, since our bodies have a lot of essential nutrients in them (I once read a book about how kedavers are used, and there was a chapter about a “green funeral”, developed in Sweden I think, where essentially you can donate your ashes to help grow a garden).
3. I’m not sure yet if there other types of elves. Haven’t thought that far.
4. Dan would be extremely morose and cut-off from everyone (even more so than he usually is) for a long time. And then to remember Phil he would start taking up gardening, specifically of sunflowers. Idk I don’t want to think about this haha.
5. Pre-industrial times. Like, a long time ago. Again I know this story lacks believability bc I haven’t really thought of specifics like that ^_^;
