He lives with his wife (female spouse) and her sister (female sibling) and her sister in law (female spouse of sibling)! To save on rent.

The locals are confused. Like, his wife's sister does leave nut shells on the carpet, but he didn't even mention that and it's solved by vacuuming.

Permalink

After a little bit of back and forth it is clarified that Elves live with some gods and the gods have opinions about gay people. The opinion is: ewww.

Permalink

...that's weird on several levels. Why do the Elves have the same opinions?

Permalink

Well, gods would know, right? Also isn't it just obviously ewww? It never actually occurred to them that people might not think so.

Permalink

The locals aren't sure how gods would know. They don't really have expectations of gods like that. And, uh, no, not particularly, guy with a gay sister in law is really more bothered by the nut shells thing.

Permalink

Huh. Gods would know because they made everything. They might not have made Amenta, Elves suppose.

Permalink

...if they made everything, why did they make gross things in their own opinion (gay people apparently? are bisexuals okay or should the linguist leave?) in addition to gross things in the Amentans' opinion (previously discussed)?

Permalink

Well, they make people who are able to make their own choices including gross choices. Elves think it was probably just too hard to design a body that didn't die and it's not like it would be that important a feature, it's not as if people die very often.

Permalink

Oh, gay people who are entirely gay don't decide to be that way. They can't have kids, who would do that on purpose? - people die a lot. Once per person.

Permalink

...well Elves who are gay decide to be that way. They suppose if Amentans don't have a choice then that's different. Most Elves have never died. Have most Amentans died? Have their interlocutors?

Permalink

Uh. Not yet?

Permalink

...but they're expecting to?

Permalink

Yeah, once per, then they're done. Er, they have "dead" translated right, right, that's the thing where your body stops working and you stop being alive forever?

Permalink

...do these people not even have backups.

Permalink

Sounds science-fictiony.

Permalink

Elves have backups. Elves are distressed for them! Without backups if you died you would just be gone.

Permalink

Well. Yes. That's what happens. They don't have enough room anyway.

Permalink

...killing people seems like kind of an extreme solution to that problem but okay.

Permalink

Most people don't die of being killed they die of being in their late thirties or early forties.

Permalink

...oh dear. Elf engineers will get looking at backups for them but they've never heard of aliens that happens to and aren't sure what to do about it.

Permalink

They were kind of expecting aliens to be mortal in general. Uh, they really really really need more space if they're going to stop dying. So much space. Planets and planets of space to fill up.

Permalink

Uh huh. There are lots of planets. Maybe the Valar can help terraform some. 

Permalink

Yay!!!!! So what's the deal with the Valar exactly.
