I dunno, Lunakat. In all the years of your life, all the other stories and comics you've read, have you really never found another story that inspires you the way "Elfquest" does? (I don't think I have. There are other stories that I really enjoy but none that have grabbed and inspired me to take part in them (through fan fiction) in the way EQ does.) It could be the same for Shen-shen. She found other things to do but nothing grabs her like midwifery. I wonder how she'll get on. Midwifery is as much about prenatal care as it is the actual delivery, at least these days.
