Yeah, a same-sex pairing wouldn't procreate, but the elves rarely procreate outside of Recognition anyway. Like you said, Recognition is around to make sure the pack has a next generation, and it'll do that just fine...because procreation IS the main (though not the only!) reason for Recognition. A same-sex Recognition, like Cutter and Skywise, doesn't defeat its purpose, but strengthens it, creating a larger network of support for parents and children, and strengthens the tribe as a whole by bringing elves together in more ways than one. :)
