I wanted to add some domovoi trivia, but your summary is quite well-rounded, great job! The only thing I can mention is that domovoy can interact with home pets, especially cats. It is also believed that he likes sweet treats and milk left overnight on a kitchen table.

I know what you mean about houses being alive. When I lived in Berlin, I was in the habit of greeting my apartment whenever I came home from work with “Hello, House!” It remains the calmest, safest place I’ve ever lived, despite being Haunted AF. Read more

I absolutely agree about the “sentience” of houses and buildings. Not sure how direct they can really get, but energy of the past can stick around to such a strong degree.

I feel the same way about houses - that after awhile, they gain a semblance of sentience. I introduced myself to our rental house when we first moved it, during my initial walk though. I was told all the keys would be in the kitchen drawer, but when I looked, all I could find was the house keys - the garage key was Read more

I love this story! Your house and your relationship with it is so cool. I 100% believe that old houses are semi-sentient and generally, the older the house, the more life can be found in it. Like a ´thickness´ of time and feeling, somehow.

My stepmum is pretty sensitive to the other side, she’ll get a look on her face in the middle of a conversation and eerily look past you, and you’ll know that she is seeing a ghostie. She’s never scared and will often just tell them to move along. This spookiness was seemingly inherited by my oldest niece, who is now Read more

Your sulky, unhappy thing seems cool as hell. Like your own personal Eeyore who steals hazelnut syrup.
