Oops! I mean aboutTerranova

OH! Now that makesd a lot more sense, LOL.

Original question again: “Can you tell more about Nora? Does she get along with children? What was her childhood like?”

Nova is the original creation of an old friend of mine. She’s actually a child assassin, raised that way by her less-than-stable mother. Back then, I didn’t really have any plans for Quay to have any kids, and with him being such a villain we both thought it hilarious and fitting that he’d wind up with a daughter that’s pretty intent on killing him. XD

Quay and her mother’s marriage was pretty terrible, largely due to him being an asshole and a horrible husband- he didn’t care at all about her and mostly did it because it that’s what people do and she was insistent. She snapped after the divorce and fled, and never told him she was pregnant. In her obsessiveness following, she trained Nova to be an assassin as a way to exact revenge on him, all without telling her the man who’d mistreated her so badly was her father.

She’s about 10-12 in the Schism universe, both of them only figuring it out their relation to each other after her mother died and Nova deciding now was the time to finish their plan. They’re on a shaky truce/cease fire right now.

SO with that information, yeah. Nova barely had any real childhood at all. She loves guns, knives and explosives, and for the most part finds kids her age irritating and a waste of her time. She’s very independent, which is good because while Quay is actually making some effort to be a father, he’s still an asshole and it’s still on his terms and not at all good parenting for the most part. XD;

Oh lord, that got long, sorry!


Quay #1 & #12? :3

1: Oof! Had to think about this one because there’s very little he gets embarrassed over! In his narcissim, he has no issues owning up to what he likes and will argue anyone down if they find it less than appealing regardless to what it is. His opinion is the only one that matters. XD;

2: Boredom. An eternity stuck in an empty room, alone with absolutely nothing to occupy his time or thoughts. The biggest motivator for him in life is whatever interests the most right then and there, making him very unpredictable.

Sly: Whatever’s easiest to shove in his face, if he eats it at all! (Really, without Jericho he’d probably never eat a proper meal.) Keepsake: An old pair of plastic sunglasses Jericho gave him waaaaay before they became an item. They’re beat up and unusable, but he held onto them anyway.

Jericho: French toast, with extra syrup. Keepsake: An old stethoscope his father gave him as a kid after deciding to be a doctor.

Sam: Ridiculously over-sugared kids cereals, lol. Keepsake: Dang, this is hard. They didn’t have much growing up, let alone much they got to hold onto. Sly once tried (badly) to make him a toy soldier from a wooden block, but it eventually got lost in the shuffle between homes. 🙁

Kit: Coffee. Black. An entire pot. Keepsake: She’s got a necklace she keeps as one of the first things she ever bought with her own earned money. She tends to value independance and her own achievements over most other things.

Quay: Eggs and bacon. Keepsake: Lol, he has extremely little sentimentality towards well… Anything. It’d probably be some sort of ‘trophy’ taken off someone he’s crushed.


12: What do they do when they are nervous? 2. Do they snore at all? (For all of your babies)

Oh lord, you underestimate how many I have! There’s quite a few who don’t get much screen time from me, so I’ll just go over the highlights. Putting it under a cut since it’ll get looong.

———- Destiny Kids:

Killy: He’ll stutter a bit or just completely fail at making complete sentences. Absolutely snores, like a truck.

Echo:  Opposite of Killy, she’s just keep talking more and faster until someone interrupts. And no, since Exos technically don’t even need to breathe and she has no nose, so you’re safe there!

Gideon: He would blush furiously, and spout off facts related to the situation is. Snores occasionally, usually lightly.

———- Schism Crew:

Sly: His basic everyday state is one of mild/general unease, so you wouldn’t notice much difference at all, but he’d get quieter than usual. Lightly snores.

Jericho: Lots of fidgeting with his hands, but otherwise remains mostly calm and plays it off well. Rarely snores but talks in his sleep.

Sam: Jokes. Say something ridiculous. MORE JOKES. Play it off with humor and deflect!! Loud snoring.

Kit: Gets progressively more confrontational/aggressive relative to her state of unease. Light snoring.

Quay: Much more likely to make others nervous. Prides himself on putting people in  state of unease, as such he rarely feels nervous himself.  Definitely snores.



Null: As he has a severe anxiety disorder, it’ll be much more surprising to see him NOT nervous! No snoring.

Richter: Slight blushing, but otherwise great at maintaining a calm outward appearance. Mild snoring.

Evlyn: Immediately begins mentally calculating risk, escape routes, possible solutions towards removing the source of nervousness. Very light snoring.
