[the askbox can be interpreted however you like. we keep the interface and circumstances of most conversations deliberately vague for the purposes of facilitating the story.]
[He was just guessing. Nobody on the ward has talked to her yet. ]
[Yes we do! Everybody’s eventual fates have been worked out, and each one will get an epilogue story when BrainBent eventually finishes.]
[read a bunch of blogs for ideas, then make the rest up as you go along! just make sure to fact check actual information when making any statements about mental health or treatment. people will ask for citations on stuff so be ready to provide them!
we mods don’t mind at all if anybody out there wants to use the BB askblog format, especially if you drop a credit our way someplace on the site for the inspiration or whatever. have fun and spread good information.]
[it is still dante, which makes Brainbent my very first REAL PERSON FANFIC.
but, human dante only. rufioh is probably his secret Minneapolis Pridentity]
halloween candy when ii had my brace2, fuck. caramel alway2 made me 2ound liike other people makiing fun of my 2peech iimpediiment, iit wa2 alarmiing. worth iit for the twiix though.
[meenah and latula are fraternal twins, sollux and mituna are entirely unrelated. more on them later in-story, i promise.]
[ah, the perils of serial storytelling.
quick writerly note: latula’s currently checking out the grounds, while sollux is over in the gent’s dorms tending to some ongoing plot. she is not aware that he’s a resident at this time; they knew each other mainly through Aradia, and haven’t kept in touch.]
[Sunshine/Sunny D-lite/Sunlight/anything with ‘Sun’ in it is gonna be Sollux, P-fall is Aradia’s rap name (it is short for Pitfall, after the video game where you run around the jungle collecting treasure and getting eaten by things). Meenz is Meenah, and MT is Mituna.
it can only get more confusing from here.]
[posted the other ones just now! in future i’ll just add translations as we go, to reduce headmeltage of people who are scrabbling at the walls trying to decipher the dancestors.]
[sollux knows them both, as latula and meenah were aradia’s best friends in high school, and he and mituna used to be the NERD TWINS.]

[I will answer this question once and only once: Newly introduced characters will show up as needed.
In the future, each time we get asked this question, we will randomly select one alpha or alt!character waiting to be introduced, and silently delete them.
You will wait and wait for that character to show up…. and you will wait IN VAIN.]
[My cents twofold? Pity the kid he was, be pissed at the dude he is, and be damned glad Dirk is a different character in this AU.
Set oven to 350 degrees and bake ten minutes. Like cookies, except cookies are awesome and Bro is a douche.]
