I DO think all of us have the capacity to be pretty!
As far as poison ivy and treeshaper Eves, that is a good note of caution. Elf-magic doesn't always turn out the way Elves, or anyone else, might anticipate. (Remember the "Madcoil" catastrophe? That one really tied up the courts. It was never resolved to anyone's full satisfaction. It's a waste of time to try to sue the estate of dead Elves when, during the course of civil action, what little they own is incinerated by careless humans.) I'd hate to think what a treehsaper would do to poison ivy, as if strangleweed weren't bad enough.
