Has anyone besides Vulcan interacted with them?
Morrison Era 2001-2005, Decimation Era from 2005-2012, Bendis Era 2012-2016, M-Pox era 2016-2017, and Resurrxion 2017-2019, Hickman Era 2019-?

Not to my knowledge. In #8, Petra, Sway and Gabriel are shown all passed out on separate sofas with lots of food and empty bottles lying around. Cyke and Alex enter and are talking to Gabriel alone while turning their backs to the other two. Although at one point Havok says to Vulcan: "You gotta gear back, man. Not judging, but you guys are a little out of control. And you never clean up, which makes it worse. Come on, Gabe... this isn't a house, it's our home."

"Guys" - plural, which upon first reading seems to refer to Gabriel and the two ladies in specific, but Alex could also be just assuming that Gabriel wasn't drinking and partying alone. (when in fact he was, only joined by two figments of imagination) As said, to read it with this idea in mind, it kinda works.... maybe even better than whatever actually is going on. ;)

While I really like the idea of Petra and Sway being figments of Vulcan's imagination (a sort of coping mechanism) I'm not sure it works since in X-men #8 there's this interaction later on when Cyclops returns to the Summer House with the King Egg:
Cyclops: We're here! Everyone ready?
Havok: Yeah. Gabriel is already on board.
Cyclops: What about Petra and Sway?
Havok: I sent them down to the island to fight with the others.

Unless Vulcan is actually manifesting them somehow (can he even do that?), it does seems they're real.

Oh, okay, so no direct interaction but a clear mentioning of them, so others do see them too.

Life on Krakoa turns mutants into alcoholics because there is literally nothing else to do aside from offscreen orgies.

The only Krakoan culture happens below the waist.

While I"m certainly not dismissing anyone's interpretations or feelings of Petra/Sway and the way they were written... I saw it a lot as reflecting on Krakoa in general. We have seen references across different books to "get crazy and cut loose" being encouraged. I think it is a problem with Krakoa society in general, that college party atmosphere that eventually ends badly if you don't drop it after college. I dunno. I just read it last night so I have to keep pondering it.

Main take-away is Genocidal Vulcan is still in there somewhere and isn't buried too deep. Yes plant people, fire bad. Don't anger the guy who can burn down a planet without breaking a sweat.
