Hello, Cuties! Welcome to the Character Q&A! Romily, Fox, Bellamy, Daddy, Darcy, and Santanos will be showing up today. For those of you who have been here with my characters before, the format is a little different just to mitigate the number of posts. Some questions have been combined. For those of you who haven't been to one of these before, these are interactive, so the characters can respond to comments on posts.
Romily: I was made for this kind of Q&A session!
Fox: The format is perfect for you.
Bellamy: Are you making mute jokes?
Romily: Do keep up, son.
Romily: The first questions! I am so excited for this!
Me: We're getting the disability stuff out of the way first.
Romily: Understandable. Hey, Cuties! *waves*
Ashley: Does Romily ever get another text-to-voice thing?
Romily: I could replace my TTS device. I know not everyone is a reader, but if I was desperate to make my words heard, I could use the voice option on my phone (which is super annoying and I do not recommend that at all unless you are blind, then yes, I highly recommend that accessibility option). Or probably more likely, I would just ask someone to read my words aloud. Unfortunately, we just live in an extremely inconvenient world. It’s not just me, but all alternately-abled people, and to be honest, everyone else too.
Tracey: Romily, has the word about you being mute spread yet or are y'all keeping that close to the chest (vest? They're both right I think.)? I love people not knowing and throwing little hissy fits, like you are required to "tell" them this. (I can be punny, too, you should totally adopt me to be Bell's sister.)
Romily: I get a huge amount of glee from people who get judgey when I don’t talk to them. I am super obviously non-verbal. Most people get it after a few minutes without me having to explain. But to be fair, I only put the effort in to communicate with the people I like and the people I must. Santanos did not fall into either of those categories.
Jennifer: Romily I think you’re perfect as you are however now that you know magic is real if it was possible to give you a voice would you do it?
Romily: Well, maybe, but that wouldn’t suddenly make me verbal. I don’t know how to form words. It would be ridiculously difficult to teach my mouth to make the shapes for the letters. Adults don’t learn new mouth shapes very quickly or sometimes ever. I would likely be unable to even make the “R” sound. So, yeah, I would let someone magic me up some vocal cords, but it would be a long, and difficult process to learn how to talk.
Fox: Magic can’t just give him vocal cords without taking them away from someone else. Balance.
Romily: *disgusted face* We’ll just put a pin in that idea then…
John: Would Fox and Romily ever go down the road of threesomes? Either just for fun within their relationship OR for more ?
Verity: Is Fox excited about being able to put more tables on their wedding registry?
Carol: Fox did you know Romily was your fated mate like he did? Or did you discover that later?
Amanda: Was it future husband at first sight for Fox too? Fox how torturous was it waiting for those 3 dates?
Carol: Romily will you take Fox’s name? Or is he going to take yours? Fox Butcher kinda has an interesting sound to it.
Romily: Three people seems like a lot of work.
Fox: It’s not too bad, but not something we’re going to do.
Romily: Arlington Butcher? Or Romily Fox? Or Butcher-Fox…not that looks like we’re hunting foxes and I’m not ok with that.
Fox: Alternatively, we just wait until it’s time to change our identities and then we can take the same name we choose then.
Romily: I’ve already chosen my next identity. Peter Johnson. I think Bellamy would make a good Willie Johnson.
Fox: You don’t get to choose names anymore.
Bellamy: I am not taking any synonym for penis as my name. Ever.
Bellamy: You are not calling me Dick.
JJ: Does Romily get anymore magic?
Amanda: Now that we know it's possible to break through a protective shield will Romily learn any skills to protect himself? I mean punching people in the throat can only get him so far lol.
Romily: I’m pretty good at scrapping. Throat punching is something people don’t expect, it can potentially break the hyoid and cause them to suffocate, and yes…Fox is going to make me learn self-defense.
Annette: You’re coming with me. The council ordered me to take self-defense too, and I am not doing this alone.
Romily: *big puppy dog eyes* I don’t have any workout clothes.
Annette: I gotchu, boo. I already bought you booty shorts with a bedazzled “Sugar Baby” on the butt and a tank top to match that covers less than it shows. You’re going to be my eye candy.
Romily: Gawd, I love you.
Annette: I got them in five colors. And to answer JJ’s question, a lot of things can hold magic, and I had Romily’s workout clothes enchanted so yes, he is getting more magic. He’s going to smell great while sweating buckets.
Romily *heart eyes* *winky kiss* *kiss*
Fox: Look at that, the instructor the council hired just quit. Looks like I’ll be the one teaching your class.
Annette: Did you just threaten our instructor and take his job?
Fox: That doesn’t sound like something I would do.
Romily: I do love the possessive side of you.
Fox: *bites Romily* Mine.
