Is it wrong that this entire bit makes me feel all warm?
Scoot over, we’ll sit and stare together.
I probably get one message every few days trying to tell me how I’m right or wrong about calling drell anatomy certain parts.. so, here, take this. It’s a little anatomy sheet I made just for you guys.
They have ribbing, and fringe. Not frills. They are not a frilled lizard, or a cobra, they cannot flare out their necks like said animals.
They inflate, like a frog, or a chameleon, and create a hissing noise with air. Their FRINGE is very dense hard cartilage, that doesn’t move, or wiggle around. You don’t see Thane’s wobbling about when he gets punched or if he moves. It’s dense enough to be pierced, too, so the piercings wouldn’t weigh it down or anything.
They aren’t frilled lizards.
I choose to call it fringe, because that’s the correct terminology on those types of lizards. When I look at drell’s fringe, I think of a bearded dragon, and how their cheeks are spikey like that. So, I call it fringe.
I call the spikes on the top of their head spines, because that’s what it’s called on lizards that have spines.
And their ribbing is very similar to the line markings on Chameleons. So hopefully people will stop asking me, or telling me what’s wrong.
You like saying frills and thinking drell are like frilled lizard and can puff out their faces like twice the size just because you think it’s funny or cute or whatever? Fine, but stop telling me I’m WRONG because I DON’T think they can do that.
Now headcanon about the “headstar”.. I could go into various detail about that, but it’s really long and thought out and I really don’t want to type everything I have written down, but basically, it’s just there, or it’s not. Some drell have it, some drell don’t. It makes no difference, but that’s what I call it. It has a social meaning—not really any significance, it’s kind of like a beauty mark, where there’s a myth that it means something depending on how many points it has—see I’m getting into details. IT MEANS NOTHING, IT’S JUST WHAT I CALL IT.
I like this vocab, a lot of thought has gone into it. And I know how you feel about Frill Friday, so how does Fringe Friday sound? I would love a whole day just for Drell.
