It's really weird how Jonan is stepping up when it comes to looking after Tareth. First, he instinctively pulls her away from the slime monster. Now he remembers that she's deaf. If this keeps up, people might start seeing through his grouchy facade.

I dunno, snapping seems a bit rude tho... She isn't a dog or a zombie... or a zombie dog.

To be fair, there aren't a lot of options for a mute guy to communicate with a deaf girl when she isn't paying attention to him in that moment.

And other than the occasional 'pulling Tareth away or guiding her away from something' he's not exactly a touchy guy. So it may not have even occurred to him to tap her shoulder. The snapping seems true to character.

Re vote incentive: OMG TARIIIIII!!!!! How could you forget that AEmber can't hear?! She trusted you and you betrayed her! D: :P

I guess it's understandable in all the commotion, but still, I would have expected Tari to have a BIT more tact in such matters. I mean how many times had she been frustrated that she was left outside, not understanding what is going on?

By the way, I am kind of sympathising with the girls these days. I'm in a German language environment and almost all my colleagues can speak German, but not me. And 90% of the time I'm just left clueless. When there is something important I ask about it, but it feels like I'm a bother. Nearing the end of a month, this is really getting tiring :/

On the other hand, she isn't used to being around other (effectively) deaf people, I don't think. AND a lot is happening quickly.

deaf folks can also usually tap shoulders/stomp/etc to get attention, so i think it's safe to say Æmber is a sliiiiightly different case

GIVE TARETH A BREAK SHE IS JUST TRYING TO KEEP UP HERSELF she's not used to keeping other people informed!!

Johan's gesture-based communication includes;

Tapping and scowling,
Pointing and scowling,
Snapping and scowling,
Scoffing and scowling,
and hopefully soon...

Signing and scowling!

I can appreciate a guy who 'faces' all his (two) emotions (i.e displeasure and disbelief).
