The time has come for things to change with Alsike and Hellebore. I’ve waffled on this decision for nearly two years and been mostly silent about my discontent with their status as Disturbed Nightmares for just as long. It’s time for them to become their own entities outside of the breed’s rules.
To that end, both are now considered dead as Disturbed Nightmares. You will note that their current references have been marked inactive. All past deviations featuring these two characters will remain posted for reference. In the next couple of weeks I will be going back over Alsike’s original incarnation as part of another character’s back story and using parts of it to rebuild both his and Hellebore’s history as they undergo a redesign. I am unsure how this will affect their relationships with the rest of the Ranch characters, but finding out is going to be part of the fun .
What this means for Alsike’s offspring;
Unless the ruling changes, this does not affect any of Alsike’s children other than Hellebore so long as they remain with the DN group. They will still be Disturbed Nightmares and Alsike is still considered their sire. Their points earned through Alsike's former status should also remain unchanged.
...I think that's all for now. Feel free to comment or PM me with questions or concerns and hopefully I can clear them up.
