She is the ultamite female and everybody knows it.



There's where I gotta disagree. The "ultimate female" does not mean "acts like a stereotypical male in just about every way, except with breasts." :)

To do her justice, Kahvi did care about Venka, and Vaya too-- but she's too hard (in body and mind), too selfish, and too insensitive in general, to be the ultimate female. That title, for me, would have to go to Nightfall, who manages to be strong, confident, and able to defend herself and others, while still being warm, sensitive, nurturing, and compassionate.

(Hmm, that's funny. Those same qualities also would belong to the "ultimate male" for me, in slightly different ways. Maybe it's not really about gender roles, after all. Wink )


And as for this:

My husband prefers me to be both softer and rounder than Kahvi, actually. Wink
