Cassandra: Initially, she got frustrated upon first meeting the Herald when they kept asking her to repeat herself. When she figures out they’re partially deaf, then she feels a little bad for being impatient with them, doubly so when she discovers they’re innocent of the Conclave’s explosion and the Divine’s death. She tries her best to accommodate them, be it writing down orders or things or speaking louder or repeating herself if need be, and learns later on how to use sign language.
Blackwall: He finds out second-hand, and he’s not really sure how to handle it, so he just copies what Cassandra does. He asks about their hearing, if it doesn’t bother them, and tries his best to learn sign language. He’s a little sloppy at first, but he’s trying.
Iron Bull: Figures it out almost immediately by observing them. He quickly adapts to their needs, and is remarkably responsive and understanding. (Assuming Thedas has some form of sign language) he surprises them by knowing sign language, and it becomes their primary means of communication. He also offers to teach some of the others who want to learn, and eventually most of the other companions can use sign language enough to communicate with the Herald outside of speaking very loudly and writing.
Sera: She’s befuddled when they ask her a few times to repeat herself when they first meet. Her eyes widen when Cassandra explains their hearing difficulties. “Ooooh. You’re deaf, or close to being deaf? Shite, why didn’t you just say so?” She takes to having a notebook to doodle and write in to convey to the Herald what she’s thinking, though often dirty doodles and snark line the pages. She has no problem working with the Herald’s disability.
Varric: While he’s learning to use sign language, he happily communicates with the Herald by writing, a lot, and doesn’t mind at all. In fact, he loves it, and considers it good practice for writing. He picks up sign language quickly and notes that now he can tell a story in person without actually making a single sound. “Now I can accommodate all audiences.” he says cheerfully.
Cole: He knows just how to communicate with them, and surprising the others, he seems to know how to use sign language instantly. He doesn’t use spoken words at all with the Herald, instead opting for signing. “Sometimes ears don’t work, but hands do.” he just says when asked about it. “Hands can do all the talking they need; hands are just as talkative as a mouth is.”
Dorian: He’s a bit surprised, but he does his best to accommodate him. He insists on learning sign language as quickly as possible, and learn quickly he does. “It’s too bad you’re hard of hearing,” he signs to them one day, “because you would LOVE my lustrous voice! I suppose my beautiful hands and looks alone will have to do.” To which the Herald rolls theirs eyes but smiles all the while.
Solas: Starts signing to them immediately; he hardly reacts at all otherwise. It’s no different to him than speaking any other language than Elven. He never explains how or where he learned sign language, and begins teaching the others how to use it. In the Fade, he introduces them to spirits who happily sign to them, if they do not regain any hearing in the Fade. “Spirits will adapt and learn to speak as we speak,” he signs, “and they will accommodate you easily.”
Vivienne: When she sees the Herald for the first time, they’re being harassed by that Marquis, who starts yelling at them for asking him to repeat himself. She scowls as the Marquis begins to mock them for their poor hearing, and she steps in to put him in his place. He’s shamed and humiliated even further as she berates him for being so rude to someone who’s simply hard of hearing. She doesn’t mind using writing to communicate instead, and also opts to learn sign language like many of the others. Soon, she and the Herald sit and look over Skyhold, chatting away about sundry topics with hands alone and some tea.
Josephine: She finds out from Leliana. This is no problem for Josephine, because she learned sign language to better communicate with the various guests that would come to the Antivan embassy. She has runners that know sign language work with the Herald, and makes sure they’re comfortable and clearly able to understand them and work with them.
Leliana: She responds by asking Josephine to teach her sign language ASAP. In the meanwhile, she just writes down what she wants them to know, and doesn’t seem affected by it at all. She does ask Dagna later on if there could be any sort of hearing aid she could give the Inquisitor, but nevertheless is very understanding about it.
Cullen: Similarly, he wants to learn sign language from Josephine or Solas or even Bull. He tries to be polite about it and accommodate them as best he can, but as it turns out, he likes writing down his thoughts and important points down more than speaking anyways.
How about an imagine where f student and m tc are going on an overseas class trip? they sit next to each other on the plane and shenanigans ensue.
TC Plane Imagine.. NSFW!
July 2017, an overseas class trip was planned for 15 students. You were heading to Spain for 2 weeks. It was a relatively loosely planned trip, there were a few scheduled tours, and a few dinners; but the students attending were allowed free roam. So long as they checked in and stayed with at least one other person. You would be going to Barcelona; and, as luck would have it your crush would be attending…As a chaperone. Your crush just so happened to be one of the 3 teachers who would be supervising the trip. The flight would take about 10 hours from the state you lived in. You arrived at the airport last, laughing nervously as your teacher smirked at you, teasing your for being late. You stood next to him, nudging him with your shoulder. The teachers led their groups over to security checks, making sure the children assigned to them were all together. The security process was rather dull, but your [TC] being there made it bearable.
Once that was over, you trekked across the airport to hopefully make it your gate on time. The teachers in charge of group numbers 1 and 2, went through boarding first. The plane this time was 4 seats across the body of the plane. Your teacher sent in the first 4 students in the group into the plane first, as though to make sure you two had gotten to sit next to each other. The plane was rather cold, but that was to be expected. You zipped up your light hoodie, as you pressed your way into the plane, closely following your teacher. In your row, there was an elderly couple; already looking sleepy. You sat closer to the window, and your [TC] on the chair next to you of course.
It took around 30 minutes until the plane was off the ground. The cabin was dark, most of the windows shuttered and most lights off. It was a 10 hour flight, and most everyone was settling in to sleep. The people across the aisle were already leaned against each other, peacefully sleeping. You noticed your teacher was still awake, scanning the plane seeing who was sleeping and who wasn’t. You decided to settle in too, pulling out the fleece blanket you had brought along. You reached up to flip off your own light; and close the window. You tapped [TC/N]’s shoulder, and lifted up the blanket. He smiled and nodded, spreading the blanket over the both of you. He gave you a mischievous look, a smirk spreading across his lips. He leaned his head against the back of his chair and used his hand to lean your head on his shoulder. You, welcomed the movement burying your face into him. He smelled so sweet as usual.
You felt his right hand rest on your thigh under the blanket, his left flipping off his own light. His fingers gently traced patterns onto your thigh, idly slipping closer and closer to your inner thigh. As he got closer you sighed softly, eyes meeting his gaze. He grinned at you and slid his hand between your legs. He rubbed the back of his hand against the outside of your jeans, safely hidden by blanket. You gasped, and bit your lip.. Understanding what that look he gave you early met. He raised an eyebrow, asking if you were alright with what he was doing~. You nodded, biting your lip.. The thrill of being caught only added to the experience.. Your spread your legs- allowing him to rub against you more. The warmth of his hands felt so good on your sex.. You couldn’t help but sigh sweetly against him. He looked over at you, planting a kiss atop your head, enjoying playing with you..
His fingers trailed up to your zipper unzipping your pants to allow himself more access.. He pressed his large hand against your panties, feeling the arousal growing in your pants.. He rubbed harder against the thin material, earning a soft moan from you.. You brought a hand to your mouth, not wanting to be caught.. Your [TC] grinned at you, and slid his hands down your panties, rubbing circles against your clit. You sighed heavily, shifting your hips against him. His fingers slipped closer to your entrance, noting the way you sighed and squirmed under his touch. His finger slid inside of you.. You let out a quiet moan as he curled his finger against your sweet spot, adding another finger. His fingers pressed in and out of you..
You were breathing rather heavily, heat pounding, an ache growing in the pit of your stomach. His thumb continued to rub your clit as he fingered you under the blanket. You felt yourself getting closer to climax.. His hand felt so good against your sex.. You gasped as you felt a lovely orgasm pass through you. You shuddered, toes curling in your shoes.. Waves of pleasure rolled off of you; you buried your face into your [TC’S] arm, covering up the whimpers coming from you. His hand continued to rub and press against you, as your rode out your climax.. He continued his movements for a moment before sliding out of you, making sure to zip your pants up.. He rubbed his hand once more over your jeans, before replacing his hand at your thigh..
You looked up at him, face flushed from the previous events.. He kissed your forehead and smirked at you.. He moved his hand from your thigh and around your waist. He tugged you closer to him, letting you rest against him more. You kissed his neck, before laying against him. You slowly walked your fingers over to his crotch, feeling his arousal with your hand… ;)
She’d made a stupid mistake, and now she supposed she was paying for it. She’d only meant to scout out the settlement. She’d meant to keep from being seen, not get too close until she’d figured out what the climate was. Too often people saw a woman alone as an opportunity. But the storehouse was just too tempting. The last couple weeks on her own had found food and water in short supply. Chancing trying to sneak in had been a very poor idea.
She’d barely cleared the door when someone grabbed her from behind. The struggle had been embarrassingly brief, but she’d got her teeth in one of the guys at least, and held on until his companion managed to drag her off.
That she’d hurt one of them was little enough comfort as they dragged her off to one of the buildings, wrists bound, and stripped of her weapons. The man she’d bitten seemed plenty pissed about it, and was rougher than strictly necessary as they arrived. She only got a glimpse of the man there before she was shoved to her knees.
“Sir, I don’t know where she came from, but we found this one trying to sneak into one of the storehouses. Bit the shit out of me when we caught her.” He pulled back his sleeve to display the purpling circle of tooth marks on his arm.
Olivia was scared, but tried to hide it, looking up through a tangle of red hair defiantly at the man in front of her.
