[quote:d678ac0776="krwordgazer"][quote:d678ac0776]("Being conservative." Or was it "being all woman"? Welly welly well! I think they meant "surrendering to the bliss of submission". That, at least, was the context. Say, is her chara biography in the English original of "The First 20 Years"? Would somebody mind quoting that to me?) [/quote:d678ac0776]
I'm not quite sure what you're referring to here, Nowth.[/quote:d678ac0776]
I'm not quite sure why not :)
[quote:d678ac0776]But I don't think the free-love thing is necessarily part of The Way. It's part of being an elf, certainly, but if anything, the other tribes are more that way than the Wolfriders, who, doing things as wolves do, seem to focus on lifemating more than the other tribes do. [/quote:d678ac0776]
Yah... interesting. Then "standard" elves see relatively little need to lifemate? All the half-way intense couples I can think of are Wolfriders (- but I haven't been reading a lot of EQ lately.)
I don't see lifemating and "the free-love thing" as mutually exclusive, though; just think of Nightfall and Cutter. Or Kahvi and Cutter. Or Skywise and Cutter. (Huh. That Cutter. Tsk.) Leetah never had anything to fear from any of them.
[quote:d678ac0776]I don't really think of Moonshade as being obsessively clingy with Strongbow, though. Look at the way she let him run off on his own to hunt for Lashpaw! I think it's just devotion-- and that he feels the same way towards her.[/quote:d678ac0776]
Well - obsessive doesn't mean possessive...
She does kinda follow his lead, even if she thinks he is wrong. Or, as she'd put it: if they are wrong.
I don't actually mind that; although I'm not sure how well it'd work in the real world, I'll just assume that with Moonshade it's a healthy kind of devotion.
It's sweet. Even enviable.
From Strongbow's POV, though -- if I were in his place, it'd creep me out; I'd have to go woo Kahvi for a bit.
Then again, I might be exaggerating what's just one or two incidences.
