Bonus: 

IF THIS IS A JOKE, I’M SORRY TO SAY I FIND IT IN POOR TASTE.

to the mod: you seem to work with asktheironinfidel a lot, are they your Dolorosa's official Signless? If so that's actually kind of cute.

All Signless Are Belong To Dolo

———————

(ooc) but in all seriousness asktheironinfidel’s mod and I met through our askblogs and I am so supremely lucky to now call her one of my best friends. We work together a lot because we talk a lot, and a not insignificant portion of what we talk about centers around Signless and Co. so we tend to collaborate on a lot of things.

I can’t say her signless is my official signless, because our headcannons and timelines do differ on several points, but considering the sheer number of headcannons and stories we have created together her signless is as close as any other blog is gonna get :3

ooc: I’ve gotten similar asks about this, and Anna here has pretty much said it. She’s a complete love!

MANY TIMES. OVER THE SWEEPS, WE’VE LEARNED TO BE PREPARED FOR SUNRUNNING.

IN THEORY MUTANTS ARE CULLED TOO, AND YET CAPTOR AND I BOTH MANAGED TO SLIP THROUGH THE CRACKS. YOU ARE RIGHT—MOST DEAF PEOPLE ARE CULLED ON ALTERNIA. GIVEN HOWEVER, THAT THE LEADING CAUSES OF DEAFNESS HERE ARE INJURY AND ILLNESS, AND WE TROLLS HAVE A LAMENTABLY VIOLENT CULTURE, SUCH INSTANCES ARE COMMON ENOUGH THAT PEOPLE MANAGE TO GET AWAY.

MY DISCIPLE WAS AN ODD CASE, IN THAT WE DISCOVERED HER NOT LONG AFTER ILLNESS THAT ROBBED HER OF HER HEARING.

MORE TYPICALLY A DEAF TROLL WILL DO THEIR BEST TO CONTINUE ON WITH THEIR LIVES BEST THEY CAN AFTER FLEEING AUTHORITIES. THE LUCKIEST OF THESE FIND OTHER DEAF TROLLS WITH WHOM TO BAND TOGETHER, FORMING SMALL COMMUNITIES ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF SOME SETTLEMENTS.

IT’S AT SUCH A HIVE THAT MY FAMILY AND I FOUND OURSELVES, NOT LONG AFTER OUR NEAR FATAL ENCOUNTER WITH A THRESHCUTIONER WHEN WE WERE ABOUT SIX, THAT MEULIN AND I LEARNED HOW DEAF TROLLS COMMUNICATE TO ONE ANOTHER, IN THEIR OWN RICH LANGUAGE.

ALTERNIA IS ACTUALLY A MUCH MORE VARIABLE PLACE THAN PROPAGANDA AND HORROR STORIES MIGHT LEAD YOU TO BELIEVE. I GUESS FOR NOW THOUGH, THE FACT ITS NOT WELL KNOWN PROBABLY KEEPS US AND OUR FRIENDS SAFER—FOR NOW.

IT’S SOMETIMES GRATING AND SOMETIMES DRAINING BUT FUNDAMENTALLY SPEAKING THE SAME CAN BE SAID FOR JUST ABOUT ANY RELATIONSHIP. WITH CASES LIKE MITUNA—HE CAN’T EXACTLY HELP THE DRAMATIC MOOD SWINGS. THE BEST THING TO DO ABOUT IT IS TO PRACTICE PATIENCE, UNDERSTANDING, A WILLINGNESS TO LISTEN AND COMPASSION.

ITS NOT ALWAYS EASY, BUT WE’VE WORKED OUT METHODS OF COPING AND TECHNIQUES THAT HELP MITIGATE OUR STRESSES TOGETHER OVER TIME.

"The Sufferer preached that after he passed, another Signless would come, heralding the end times for their planet. The Second Signless would continue his work, and lead his people to glory beyond this realm."
