I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO STABDADS SO I MADE IT STABDADS
For the rest of his life, without conscious thought, Karkat Noir will close his left eye when he’s giving somebody the death-glare. This is absolutely not because of his dad’s badass missing eye and the hundreds of times Jack turned the one-eye-death-glare on somebody for messing with his son. Of course. Nothing to do with that at all.
Because it's munday, I'd love to celebrate all you gorgeous people with your beautiful faces!! Send me a 🔥 + your selfie tag and I'll post one of your pics and let you know what I love most about you 💕
What are your character’s most prominent physical features?
The first thing most people probably see is Tamlen’s vallaslin. After all it covers about half of his face. As probably most Dalish are, he is very proud of wearing it. The story behind how he got it is a little unusual though. He was comparatively old, 19, almost 20 when the elders of his clan finally thought that he was ready. In the night before the actual ceremony, which is to be used by the young elves to meditate, he still was uncertain about which deity to dedicate his vallaslin to. He considered Ghilan’nain, in honor of his mother’s family, but also Dirthamen, like his father did, or Andruil, because after all he would finally be an adult hunter of his clan, so why not honor the goddess associated with that role. Near the end of the long night though, half-asleep and tired, Tamlen dreamt of a huge tree spreading its branches across the whole clan, protecting it from all peril, its roots reaching deep down into the earth, unwavering and strong. Tamlen wasn’t sure what to make of this dream, if he should take it as a serious vision or just wave it aside. He decided to tell the keeper the next morning when she asked him for his decision about which deity to dedicate his vallaslin to. The keeper encouraged him to take the dream seriously, as a sign the Creators themselves might have sent to him. She explained that the imagery he had described were symbols of Mythal, the great protector. Tamlen liked the idea of that and chose Mythal inspired by this strange dream (he doesn’t like calling it a vision actually, although the keeper still keeps referring to it like that). Bonus: if Solas had ever told him about the original meaning of the vallaslin and offered to remove it Tamlen would have declined his offer. He would have been shocked to hear what purpose the tattoos originally served, but that’s not what he connects them with. The vallaslin for him is a sign of being part of a loving family and community, of staying true to one’s values and taking responsibility. It’s a sign of coming-of-age, of a new chapter in one’s life, and a way to honor the Dalish way of life – the Dalish, not the Elvhenan.
How does Julius act when they don't get something they want? How does Bowie handle pain (emotional or physical)? What is Micah's favorite activity? What's a dream Dash has?
Julius is.. not someone who doesn’t really get what he wants, honestly? He has a lot of contacts and his own ways of being very persuasive, and when someone tries to work against him or take something that’s his, he’s very vicious. He won’t show his anger very easily when that happens, at least not by shouting or direct aggressive behaviour, but he won’t hesitate to ruin someone if he can and feels it’s justified.
Bowie isssss. hm. Someone I think who when he’s in physical pain, would try and kind of laugh it off but fail horrendously at it, he’s not someone with a great poker face. He’d love having a great story to tell afterwards, though! Even if he got hurt picking a fight and losing quite spectacularly. Emotionally.. I’m honestly not sure. He’s not really in tune with his actual emotions.
Micah’s favourite activity is reading, without a doubt. That one wins by a landslide. A close second would be harassing Marcel and having coffee with him.
A dream Dash has is… going out for dinner. And a lot of other very mundane, human things. And seeing the world below the city properly!
