"A bit, yes. You could pick something magey? Except that makes you sound kind of doom-y."

Permalink

"It's a distinctly doom-y magic system, isn't it."

Permalink

"So, so doomy. - Cor said you moved into a treehouse? Nobody is named Treehouse yet. Or, uh, Tree, if you wanted something less weird."

Permalink

" - sure, that works."

Permalink

"That's not doomy at all! Yay!"

Permalink

"It's a terrifically fun magic system, aside from the eating worlds."

Permalink

"And it will be so handy for future Melkors who aren't in convenient neighborhoods!"

Permalink

"I really could have done without there being more of Melkor!"

Permalink

"Well, at least the more of them we have to expect because so many Ardas will be dispatched in minutes instead of the thing with the off-brand-Silmaril-powered automaton army?"

Permalink

" - yeah, that does sound like an improvement."

Permalink

"Maybe after long enough we'll have to relax about the nickname thing and let you all do numbers or letters or whatever."

Permalink

"We sure are accumulating. I think the way to do it would be prefixes by world."

Permalink

"I guess. So unaesthetic though."

Permalink

"They can be pretty prefixes."

Permalink

"I wasn't questioning that, it's just that the concept of being prefix-Bell is unaesthetic."

Permalink

"You lot seem to come in a nice variety of names."

Permalink

"Not all of us! I'm an Isabella! I will fall victim to whatever system distinguishes Isabellas!"

Permalink

"There could be a Bell exception, since the real thing we're trying to avoid is having fourteen of every single Noldo unhappily checking nicknames with their thirteen counterparts to learn that one is taken also."

Permalink

"I suppose. I dunno, some of them manage without nicknames, I don't think anybody's nicknaming the Macalaurës or anything. Maybe they will now that some of them are married."

Permalink

"Is my Macalaurë unusually evil also?"

Permalink

"Uh, Elves of evil Ardas generally with a handful of exceptions including you are more paranoid and amoral and less altruistic and in Fëanorians this seems to add up to weirdly myopic familial loyalty? I might turn my back on them but I wouldn't ask them to babysit lest the transmission of inadequate values work that way around too. Even if that were a thing I needed people to do."

Permalink

"I can't actually imagine Fëanorians without weirdly myopic family loyalty. Good to know."

Permalink

"I mean, there's always some, but... less myopic, usually."

Permalink

"We've decided the evil ones can't have Rebeccas," says a passing Macalaurë. "Just to be safe."

Permalink

"That seems...hard to enforce. Will you kidnap one if they get one?"
