Leanan said: I wonder, are there times when an elf is more fertile? We know from the Shuna situation that they do not menstruate.
For GoBacks there would have to be. For the rest, it would be triggered by recognition.
Vaeri said: this is going to sound extremely silly, but i kind of thought of a clownfish situation.
an egg comes out for a period of time, then goes back into the ovaries. and repeat. until eventually the elf is so old, the eggs just don't move anymore.
Cool! Is that what happens with clownfish?
