This weeks shared topic is brought to us by Akabeko at Red Cow Rise and it is a doozy!!
Canon refers to the actual events and characters that exist in a fictional world. Headcanon refers to any situations or characters that are imagined by fans of said fictional world. Sometimes they are silly, like the fact that Garrosh’s favorite treat is lemon squares. Sometimes they are serious, like positing that tauren store grief in the lungs. For my writing, I’ve come up with a lot of headcanon. Got a theory about a torrid romance between your favorite auctioneer and the patrolling guard? Given any thought to where mounts and pets go when they aren’t summoned? Do you know how your characters do their laundry, or what Baine Bloodhoof does in his free time? What are your headcanons, and where did you get the idea?
This is going to be a very long post I have so much head cannon it will take me a while to post it all! I am just going to talk about my personal characters because they are the people I spend the most time with.
So let’s start in order with my Mage She was technically born in elwynn forest on a lovely rainy night. She was not supposed to be born due to her parents heritage – their love was forbidden – so she grew up living a nomadic lifestyle, moving from place to place, raised by many different aunts and uncles until she was old enough to strike out on her own. She does not have a chip about this as she is well aware she is loved by her parents and had a fantastic upbringing.
