Okay, I finally finished Delva Duerfin's reactions to all the other characters. I first want to sincerely apologize for how long this took me to complete. All I can really say is that a lot of crazy stuff happened. That being said, here it is, all packaged safe and sound in this little spoiler tab.
Delva is good-natured and friendly by default, despite her tendency to be incredibly blunt and forceful during conversations she always manages to keep an overall happy-go-lucky attitude; sometimes even being blunt and forceful about being happy-go-lucky. This also plays perfectly into her single-minded attempts to brute-force her love of all things 70's and disco into every aspect of her life, including her socializing. To that end, she uses a quadrant based measuring system with which to gauge her friends, peers, and associates. These quadrants, of course, are: Grooviness, Funkiness, Jive, and how With-it they are. Should whoever is being scrutinized fall short in any of these four categories, she won't hold it against them. She will instead try to enlighten them by taking on the tone and fervor of a funky-fresh missionary preaching the gospel of groovy music, bright colors, bell-bottom pants, and a disco ball in every room.
Dahlia: Delva will immediately take a liking to Dahlia due to the similarities she has to her older sister; even going so far as to say the resemblance is almost uncanny. Either through willful or genuine ignorance, it would never quite click in Delva's mind that Dahlia may actually be associated with her actual older sister. Dahlia's hate for all things disco will indeed provoke Delva, not into violence or outrage, but into trying to show her the error of her ways; much is the similar relationship Delva had with her older sister. Of all the pre-scratch kids, Dahlia is the one that Delva enjoys talking to the most.
Iodine: Delva would get along well with Iodine as they share such similar traits as friendliness and bubbliness. Though they both possess different kinds of bubbliness, they are still bubbles all the same. Even though Iodine's love of arcades and video games may be slightly shared, Delva will claim ignorance of any game made after the 70's. Should any challenges be issued, Delva would boast being able to school Iodine anytime at a game of no-holds, sudden death Pong. Though Delva herself isn't competitive by nature, she would offer encouragement to Iodine in any of her hyper-competitive ventures under discussion. This may cause more harm than good as Delva is prone to offer encouragement even when she probably shouldn't. Such magnitude levels of over-encouragement that the end result may very well be disastrous, or at least humorous shenanigans.
Webb: Delva would admire his trend-setting idea of wearing Halloween costumes year round. Naturally she would have a few suggestions of other costumes he could wear; disco themed, naturally. She would enjoy talking too him while he is in a good mood and attempt to cheer him up, in her own way, if he is in one of his upset moods. Because of Delva's absolute clumsiness in dealing with people with negative emotions, if she spoke to Webb during one of his breakdowns, she would attempt to help, but most likely end up making things worse. After that she would go out of her way to avoid speaking to Webb until the memory of the event fades, for fear of making the same mistake again.
Alys: Delva would get along with Alys, full stop. She would never turn down a conversation with Alys, and would talk about disco as much as she could get away with. Delva would also happily listen to Alys talk about her modern shows and games, even if she wouldn't understand any of it. However, since Alys wouldn't understand Delva's talk of disco, they would at least have mutual understanding of not understanding each other.
Liam: Even though the two of them would not get along, Delva would still enjoy talking to Liam anyway. Despite that Delva's incomprehensible broken speech laced with misunderstood, and misused, slang being endlessly offensive to him, and he must assuredly being vocal about it, she would would jump at the opportunity to speak with him. In Delva's mind, his distaste is most likely the result of a deficiency in vitamin Groove. No matter how frustrated, angry, or vocal Liam is when their conversation ends, Delva would always walk away believing that great strides were made.
June: Delva wouldn't mind talking to June. Delva would respond well to June's friendly enough personality, but would most likely try to find ways to encourage her to be more energetic and open. This will most likely have various degrees of success, those degrees most likely being between -1 and 0. These encouragements most likely being along the lines of suggesting she hang out with people more or go to social events, just so long as those things are disco-related in nature.
Will: Delva doesn't hate Will, she actually enjoys speaking with him, but she very strongly disapproves of Will's extremely formal method of dress and speech. It reminds her too much of the old-fashioned formality of her father and the surrounding town, something that her disco-drunk funk-fiesta is trying to rebel against.“Totes to the total squares-ville, daddy-o”, is her usual reaction. Delva is aware of his conflicting feelings in regards to her, and will mercilessly tease him as a result. Despite of her being aware of these said conflicting feelings, due to her lack of outstanding foresight, whichever direction they go, she will still somehow manage to be caught off guard by it.
Anna: Delva gets along well with Anna. They both adore music and seem to share a generally sunny attitude. Delva is most pleased that Anna let's her get away with gushing about disco and seventies stuff as much as she does, and pays attention too. The two of them could even share a best friend status.
Raye: Delva respects Raye's tastes in older media, but is slightly disappointed that none of them seem to be specifically from the seventies. Delva might try to use Raye's taste for the classics to steer him towards the more noble generation of entertainment. Port: Delva enjoys speaking to Port, she also likes it when he sends her “nostalgic stuff”, especially if it's from the seventies. She does, however, object to it being called “nostalgic. It can't be nostalgic if it never died, right? (Either wishful thinking or willful ignorance on her part, you be the judge.) She doesn't agree with Port's hands-off approach to life. “To being the cool-cat, life's horns are to be grabbed big-time, can you be digging it?” What Delva respects most about Port is his fashion sense. The purple and orange pac-man sweater with overalls is something she definitely approves of. Considering Delva's own tasteless preferences in fashion, this should raise red flags in Port's mind more than anything else.
Adam: Delva doesn't know quite what to make of Adam. He doesn't seem to talk to her much, and when he does his conversations are usually shy and withdrawn. At the very least, they aren't on bad terms. One glaring detail, to Delva's mind, is that he doesn't seem very interested in anything from the seventies. Naturally, whenever they do interact, she will bombard him with relics of the disco age until he either sees the light or breaks and runs away terrified of the vortex of funky-groove.
Trolls- Delva's broad reaction to the trolls is a mix of awe and excitement at meeting extra-terrestrial aliens, followed by disappointment that they're not the tall, big-headed “grays” riding around in flying saucers like she's seen in her old 70's flicks. Her biggest concern is the terrifying and almost incomprehensible notion that their culture may never have had an equivalent to disco. Naturally, she intends to share with them as much as her disco-era media as possible in order to fill the void and make up for lost time. Heaven help them.

Sorry for the lack of posting here. I literally just remembered that this thread was moved to the fan projects section, which is why I wasn't seeing any updates about it. So I decided to post here to let everyone know I'm still around, and also to say that I'll probably be getting started on Tytaan and Illiya's reactions soon...ish.
Are you including the bit where the Pre-scratch adults defend the scratchpad while the group flees on the moonship?
And I don't think I was informed of this part, but I'd love to add it in! We'd need sprites of the pre-scratch adults, a few imps, and a blank reference sheet of the scratchpad. I might be able to rip one from the actual homestuck though.
