Cationes post?


Would any of you be interested in a post about a race/culture on my world, Cationes?

I'll still do it or not based on how much I wanna, but you can sway me.

If you are interested, which most sparks your interest?
the Edhelekharo / golden elf type
the Feanen / faery type
the Liltalnen / water people (a unique race of mine)
the Setsu / a completely unique race of very similar-looking people
the Tallran / forest elf type (with a unique twist)
the Chima / giant type
Pixies / my take, not traditional at all

Ha, no poll -- you have to comment!

feelings: blank
sounds: the Benjamin Gate: "Live Out Loud"

we love that icon.
belenen ══╣curious╠══
are you using 'we' in the royal sense or do you mean you and scourge?

and thanks -- the artist's work can be found here.
evileve ══╣╠══
yes, he and I.

I would be interested in a post about all of that. But especially water people, because the sea is amazing and I wanted to be a selkie when I was little. Now I want to be a mermaid, fantasise about that instead. Mermaid, Selkie, Mermaid, Selkie. I can only swim underwater though, soon as my head breaks the surface I start floudering. Wouldn't it be lovely though, to have that kind of weightless freedom, be able to breathe underwater. Would have to have some magical power to ward off sharks and nasty things like that. See in the dark too, of course, and not feel the cold.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
do you know, I hadn't even thought about the darkness... I shall have to factor that in. ;-)
aubkabob ══╣╠══
ooh, or instead of having a magical power to keep them away, maybe a kind of kinship, to where the sharks could be almost like your protector against all else that is evil, i.e. human predators?
misemifein2 ══╣╠══
Human predators of mermaids? Not nice, humans eating mermaids. Kind of image like goya, saturn eating his children, except fishier. I suppose there could be kinship, but I don't like sharks. Speciesist that I am. Has to be either kinship, magical powers, or a big stick.

LOL!

understandable... they DO have all those vicious looking teeth, and their tails DO go the wrong way...

belenen ══╣garrulous╠══

digressions with an answer too :)
the Edhelekharo / golden elf type

true i love fairies..but i think i love elves more..shhhh dont tell anyone. elves and their abilities fascinate me. *yeah, i like fantasy.*

*light bulb goes off* ive been staring at my books trying to figure out what genre i wanna read. fantasy! im really in the mood for fantasy right now...off to the bookstore. whoo hoo!

once i get an elf pic i love, im gonna tattoo a beautiful elf portrait on my arm. lovely icon by the way...hey if you could direct me to some wondrous elf pics as beautiful as that icon for my tat, that would be swell :) no worries, i wont use anything if someone does not want me to.... i really dont need to stare at my arm and thing "someone hates me because of this" hehe.

i digress..id like to hear about the elf world. pointy ears...yummy.

xo

Re: digressions with an answer too :)
If ya wanna read some high fantasy, read Tad Williams' "Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn" series (first book -- "The Dragonbone Chair") -- if you want modern/urban fantasy, read Tad Williams' "War of the Flowers." He's an AWESOME writer and every fantasy reader should read his novels.

All of the above.

ta. *wink*

I'm interested in everything. The scientist in me saw "cation" and got all excited then I realized it wasn't what I though. Lol. I'm still interested though.
belenen ══╣fantasy╠══
cool, cool. "Cationes" means 'creation' -- they were only slightly more inventive than we were with naming their planet. 'Creation' is a little better than 'dirt,' I think.
writer_lilies ══╣╠══
Who's they?
belenen ══╣fantasy╠══
ummm... the first people, I suppose. *thinks* Probably the Edhelekharo, 'cause the other races wouldn't really care or think about the fact that there may be other worlds.
writer_lilies ══╣╠══
Oh okay.
eternitywaiting ══╣╠══
Dark elves....I'm all about dark elves.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
well, they're very untraditional -- but I do think you'll like mine.
smurfb1ue ══╣╠══
Either the Edhelekharo or your Liltalnen. Fantasy is such a fascinating genre--the best, because you get to create your own world that is uniquely yours.

amen to that!

Tallran, baby. Chalk another vote up for the inkies.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
duly noted. ;-)

well, i couldn't pick just ONE, so here's why each of them pique my interest:

the Edhelekharo / golden elf type - i've always been drawn to elves, my whole life. maybe it's because Aubrey means "elven ruler"? meh, maybe it's a coinky-dink. but elves are such an ancient race, really, and i've always been drawn to what's happened in the past more that what's up in the future. if that makes any sense.
the Feanen / faery type - faeries intrigue me because they're so.. ethereal. so mystical that ya just can't touch em or see them directly, only catching glimpses in the corner of your eye. what you THINK you see. i would love to hear about them to know more about what i can't touch. if THAT makes any sense ;)
the Liltalnen / water people (a unique race of mine) - from an astrological point of view, since i'm a Pisces, i've always been drawn to the water. it's such an EMOTIONAL element, really. my moon being an air sign (gemini) makes me fear the depth of the water, what may be hidden underneath. from when i used to do a lot of dream interpretations, too, water was such a gigantic emotional aspect (i would change water into snow in my dreams so that it would swirl around me harmlessly....). the idea of an entire race existing there...
the Setsu / a completely unique race of very similar-looking people - interesting. i would like to see what causes them to be so alike, yet so different from everyone else.
the Tallran / dark elf type (with a unique twist) - hee hee. who can't love a unique twist? and there's always something endlessly enticing about even the idea of dark elves!
the Chima / giant type - kind and gentle, like Treants? or evil and destructive like the centinels in the Death Gate Cycle? TELL MEE!!!!
Pixies / my take, not traditional at all - just the WORD makes me giggle :)
