#TheExpanse whole series, five books or something, autistic Amos headcanon
@SallyStrange Every time there is even a slight implication of Amos being unhappy I want to ATTACK MY SCREEN
I adore him in the books I've read so far and I feel like on the show they did a great job pushing the autism implications. In the books, he wonders if he's afraid, wonders how he'd know. ALEXITHYMIA MOOD. And I felt so affirmed and validated by book!Alex missing the specific traits about Amos that he did. Having autistic friends IS RELAXING, THANK YOU ALEX KAMAL FOR UNDERSTANDING
When Alex is yelling at him, "Is this your messed up way of apologizing?!" Amos doesn't even answer the direct question; he cuts to the problem. "Was it messed up?" Just totally sincerely for real genuinely asking because Alex will know.
@solarpunkgnome @pagrus @InvaderXan @polychrome @garbados Oh goodness, I would love to know where you found that! I've tried making hand-shapes at the cuttlefish at the New England Aquarium, but only once or twice did they seem to respond...
I suspect my hands need to have chromatophores for it to really work. Special gloves? :-D
@InvaderXan @pagrus @garbados I remember reading that they were generally disinterested in video playbacks until they were arranged a high-fps footage and display because they can see at a much higher fps than we do, so our usual stuff looks like a high speed gallery show instead of anything resembling movement.
