IT’S CALLED A PECULIARITY: A RECESSIVE TRAIT PASSED THROUGH FAMILIES. you can go generations without seeing a peculiar child in a family, but when they are born, we are here to keep them safe.
In the middle of New Orleans, there sits the remains of the Abattoir compound. The house was owned by the mysterious Mikaelson family: old New Orleans blue blood who, on June the twelfth, 1914, vanished without a trace.
The disappearance of the Mikaelson family remained a Quarter mystery which would, as mysteries often do, become legend. Some say that it was a Voo Doo priestess who used the Mikaelson’s powers for her own good; others insist that they simply left, and with them took a hundred years of luck.
The truth, however, was far more… peculiar. The Mikaelson siblings belonged to a strange type of person called PECULIARS: humans born with strange and impossible abilities. They were, in fact, among the FIRST of the Peculiars born a thousand years ago. They still remain in the Quarter, and in fact, they still remain in the Mikaelson Compound, though they remain in June the twelfth, in a loop, creating a safe haven for other Peculiars.
THIS IS A group verse based on the premise of Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children, taking the idea of the Homes, and creating a new one with loose ties to TO canon. There’s no real need to know the plot of the book (or film), as the only part of the canon we will be using is that Peculiars can come to the home, which is safeguarded by its Mistress, and stay in the same day forever.
Worst "fan" gifts encountered: death fan fictions, metal shards in food, poisonous substances in drinks, voo doo dolls depicting death and bad luck curses, numerous blood written/marked letters, timed explosives filled with acid.
Since Nuada was shown putting the Forest God's little egg thing together, do you think he enjoys building things like that? Do you think he'd be a little less afraid/disliking of human tech if he was shown how something is put together?
Yes, actually, that is a headcanon of mine… that he is good with/likes to work with his hands and enjoys tinkering. I headcanon that the table where he was fixing the incubation vessel for the forest god is actually a permanent fixture in his home, and that he fixes toys, music boxes, clocks, and other small machines there regularly. It’s therapeutic for him.
You know what? I think he probably would understand human technology better and even like it if he could have it demystified for him. Right now… it’s damn near magic to him. Voo-doo. Something scary he doesn’t understand or trust. But if someone broke it down and explained the science behind it and showed him all the parts - maybe even let him build small machines himself to see how they’re put together - I think he would start to calm down about it.
