Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

ok I understood. I have done one for a conpeople of mine recently(I still need to fill out the names of celebrities and famous movies, animations, novels, etc. and check the rest part though), and I wonder what would the one for Rireinu look like after seeing the “ If you're a woman, you don't go t...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

I wonder what would the Rireinu version of this look like: https://www.zompist.com/amercult.html Oh! I remember this. Nowadays I might be able to actually make one. Or at least a somewhat reasonable attempt. In other words, there isn't one yet. But there might be in the future. Not this week though...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

So there is a Rakoczy March too? Cool! (The Radetzky March is part of my New Year's traditions, courtesy of the Wiener Musikverein and their concert, conveniently broadcast at an hour I am awake on New Year's Day.) Which has definitely (defiantly, even) no connection whatsoever to the name of First ...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

Hadn't thought of it that way. I figure, if I went to a place where everyone's a human girl, and I were a human boy, I'd be thinking, "I'll be able to pass, because they all look like human females, and not some great scary winged beast!" Most male Humans of my acquaintance have certain anatomical ...

Re: Your written ideolect.

Your present interlocutor has a faiblesse for convoluted sentence structures and recherché vocabulary, but since she posts but seldom, it is to be hoped that that does not unduly distract from her eventual message, should any be present to discern. Also. I try to write full sentences. With punctuati...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

Indeed, I did not specify Radetzky's gender. But I submit she is definitely female-presenting, as she notes in the first paragraph that she expected to be able to pass as one of the natives who "all look like Human females". It was her lack of body hair that made this not as easy as she had assumed...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

Well, I do like to think there is something of Permanent Undersecretary Henry Kiku (of The Star Beast fame) in First Secretary Radetzky, but I'm not sure how much of that is visible in the actual lines of the text. But of course, reading is an essential part of the creation of a text.

First Secretary Radetzky When I found out I might be assigned to our embassy on Rireinu, I read up on it of course. It sounded like almost too good to be true.

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

Dating, relationships & marriage Marriage is the basic building block of Rireinu society. Two women sharing their lives and raising each other’s children. The ideal is that once married, you raise 2.5 dutiful daughters and stay married until death do you part. But this does not always work, and the...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

Have any eccentric females ever kept their male babies? Do they speak? In the days of old, certainly some people kept their male babies. After all, that is a straightforward way to start a new village. In recent centuries, not so much. Males can learn to speak some words to communicate some simple ...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

A question (or three): I gather from the style in which you wrote this snippet that males are a bit, mm, dim. I know you've said before that males are not cognitively on par with females, but I'm wondering how great is the rift? He has a name: does he know it's his "name", or is just a meaningless ...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

Indeed, I am assured that the males in studhouses are provided with a suitably stimulating environment to keep them physically and mentally fit for their duty. Also they are carefully paced to make sure no single male overexerts himself. Male husbandry is a science and an art, with millennia of hist...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

A good boy Sari has a swing in his den. It’s an old car tyre suspended from a length of rope. Sometimes Sari swings in his swing. It’s great fun. Sometimes Sari lies on the ground on his back and kicks the swing this way and that. It’s great fun. Sometimes Sari’s pecker gets hard. Sometimes he igno...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

Remo, not "just a girl" "You can't do that! You're just a girl!" I grew up with that as a constant refrain. Who didn't? Now I am a person full grown, a wife and a valued employee. I still get dismissed as "just a girl". Not much longer, though. After today's operation, I won't be a girl any more. T...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Uu, very little I'm afraid. Rireinu is dull as ditchwater, but a great place to raise kids. Speaking of kids, I think the Rireinutire kinship chart is the most recent thing I've finished. Lately I've been concentrating on translation-spamming ConWorkShop. hehe! I'm hazarding the guess that your com...
