Re: Why is sexuality & gender-identity so key 2 grouping fic

Well, correct me if I'm wrong, Eldin, but that's probably because you're a straight cisgender man. ("Cisgender" just means "is not transgender.") In terms of gender and sexuality, this is what our society considers neutral and default. One thing you have to understand about identity politics is that...

Re: Why is sexuality & gender-identity so key 2 grouping fic

It's because in our culture gender and sexuality are very important aspects of our individual identities, and readers want to read books sometimes where their identities are shared with the protagonist. "I want to read a book where the main character is a lesbian like me" is as valid of a desire as ...

Re: Government

The Chosen of Yen'darik is a theocratic monarchy based on the principles of Yen'darism . Yen'darism teaches that all of reality is a corrupted, degenerate representation of a perfect realm simply called Heaven. Heaven contains copies of everything in our reality, including people and places, but in ...

Re: Government

What happens if the executor's policy goal is unreasonable? Is there anybody who is able to take the executors aside and quietly tell them their goals aren't possible, without being at risk for execution? Freedom of thought and expression is surprisingly encouraged in the Imperium, despite its dict...

Re: Government

I see. What happens if things don't run so smoothly? Then you have a succession war, with all the death and destruction that implies. The last such war was over 300 years ago, and it led to the Imperium breaking apart into several nations. This only lasted for about 70 years before the Imperium was...

Re: Government

The Second Executor has no access to life abbreviation technology? They do, but a Second assassinating a First has not happened in centuries. That's part of the reason why the First and Second share so much power, to give the Second as little incentive for assassination as possible. It's actually t...

Re: Government

I've been sketching on a new setting so why not. The Great Kirinthi Imperium is a hereditary monarchy led by the First Executor , Kirinthiax Wian Bianande IX, and her heir the Second Executor , Kininthiax Maxi Welal VII. The two executors rule conjointly, with the Second being promoted to the First ...

Re: Is the idea of a succubus too cheesy for a modern audien

I'll be honest, I don't think a female character who uses her sexuality to destroy men like a predator, whether in a supernatural sense like a succubus or in a more mundane way like the femme fatale, has any value played straight. It honestly only makes sense turned on its head, with the feelings of...

Re: Random phonology/phonemic inventory thread

Maybe, I don't remember. Sonorant-only languages are an idea I've been fascinated with for a while though so it wouldn't surprise me if I've made something similar to this.
