"They're secret until you get married?"

" - no, but the descriptions of what they do wouldn't make sense to me..."

Blink. Headtilt.

"I don't think humans do marriage the same way. Maybe daeva don't either."

Permalink
"It's a humany kind of thing to do, most daeva don't bother with it I think."
Permalink

"Oh, that makes sense."

Permalink
"I think daeva who get married do it about like humans except we can't have children, though, what's different for Elves?"
Permalink

"I don't actually know what humans do, aside from that it's different."

Permalink
"Oh. I went to a wedding once, a demon wedding, it was basically a party is all."
Permalink

 

" - I mean, we have wedding parties but that's not the actual wedding part. I guess if daeva mostly don't have any urge to get married you might not even realize."

Permalink
"I've never heard somebody having an urge to be married in particular. What's the actual wedding part?"
Permalink

"Uh, it's private, and just the man and woman getting married, and they - I don't even know if daeva work the same way -"

"I can't tell you if you don't know what you mean," says Zota reasonably.

"They have different parts and they fit them together and then they're married."

Permalink
"Oh, we just call that having sex. Or, like, there's a specific word for that kind of sex in Thoiga but you don't know Thoiga."
Permalink

Nod. "Well, most Elves want that and so most Elves get married eventually."

Permalink
"Most daeva want to have sex. I don't, I used to but it turns out I don't like it."
Permalink

"But you just said not many daeva marry."

Permalink
"Maybe that's the thing that's different? We don't - be married - just because we had sex, or a specific kind of it, or anything."
Permalink

" - that would be different. With Elves if you have sex then you're married. For ever."

Permalink
"Oh. I don't even talk to those people any more."
Permalink

Shiver. "That's one of the things that goes wrong when Elves live with other people, I think, maybe."

Permalink
"Well, it turned out I didn't like sex so it won't be a problem with me, I guess?"
Permalink

Nod. "Unless you changed your mind someday. I don't know if that's usually a permanent thing."

Permalink
"Some people have exceptions, I think. I haven't noticed any and I'm two hundred years old."
