That is what makes the story so powerful. I can only wish that EQ could be a part of some kind of 'affirmative reading' list for gay youth. The sexuality of the elves is all-inclusive. When Winnowill first talked to Leetah, you could feel the energy. There was seduction going on. Even the scene when Leetah went to have words with Winnowill, there was a sexual undertone that made it that much more intense. You don't feel like "eww, that's not natural". I still sit mesmerized over the writing of these fine people.
