You could say it's intuition instead of unsubstantiated feeling. There's a difference!
Permalink
And what's the difference?
Permalink
Intuition is often based on cues picked up subconsciously that are processed and then presented as ready conclusions that appear mysteriously!
Permalink
Which looks an awful lot like an unsubstantiated feeling until you turn out to be right.
Permalink
Sure but according to yourself you turn out to be right more often than other people.
Permalink
Evidence is a way of telling ahead of time that you're going to be right.
Permalink
Having been right often in previous similar situations is evidence.

Have we really been arguing for nearly an hour about how much weight I should give to vague feelings I have about magic?
Permalink
It's an important topic about how much hope I should have that I'll be immortal and have pretty wings!
Permalink
Your wings would be very pretty, I bet.
Permalink
Is there a way to predict that?
Permalink
They often look like your ancestors', but not always, and you don't have any winged ancestors, so it is a complete mystery. I just have a lot of evidence that you're a very pretty person, and it's rare to see a set of wings be strikingly unattractive.
Permalink
What would even count? The options you gave sounded either cute or rad.

Aluvai often have batlike wings, and Ceirene often have feathered wings, but the other way around isn't unheard-of. Aluvai usually have wings of darker colours. I suppose you aren't technically Ceirene, so who knows what you'll end up with.

My father's wings are very Aluvai, almost stereotypically so - dark brown bat wings with paler accents. My mother's are pretty definitively Ceirene - white and feathered. In terms of style, though, I think it's hard to beat the royal family of Aluvanna: solid black bat wings.

Those all sound like really awesome wings to have! What's an ugly wing?

I have seen a set of neon pink feathers in my time. I hope whoever had them was happy with their results.
Permalink
I would rock neon pink feathers.
Permalink
I don't doubt it, but when I think of you with wings I think of something that goes with your costume. White, sleek.
Permalink
The only type of wings I can really see going with my costume are some form of artificial glossy wings or something.

By the way: are the wings magically hideable or something? 'Cause otherwise bye bye secret identity. Not that I'd care much, what with being basically immortal.
Permalink
They can be dematerialized and rematerialized at will.

It's not that unusual to have wings in some strange shape or form. They'll be solid and strong and keep you in the air, and that's all that can be said for sure.
Permalink
Will I have to learn how to flap-flap them or do they just magically keep me afloat?
Permalink
They come with instructions, you might say. I've heard it can be disorienting to get your wings unexpectedly, not because you don't know how to fly, but because suddenly you do.
Permalink
That sounds a bit terrifying, they'll just be inserting knowledge into my brain?
Permalink
Is that very much more terrifying than attaching new limbs to your body?
Permalink
Yes! At least I know what wings do and how they relate to my body and like you said I can make them go away so that's even more reassuring. I can't inspect my own brain before and after and determine everything's alright!
