So, are you going to finish your "Mutant Telepath" story or what? How am I supposed to read more if you're being lazy? V. E. Lehkonen
replies: "Argh. I should finish it... but as long as I don't, you'll just have to wait. >_>"

In my own writing I tend to use gender neutral language and let the reader make up their own mind. I don't let sex and gender get in the way of the reader's identification with the people they are reading about. It's hard at first but in the end men and women can find ways to say whatever they need to, don't you think?
It's probably related to my own obsession with gender and identity.

replies: "Gender-neutral language was such a self-evident truth to me until I started studying foreign languages... And writing a foreign language, I have to struggle a bit to try to make it all fluent or even readable.
Cool, another gender/identity obsessed person! There needs to be more people like us in the world."

Your stories look very interesting, I'll read them right away!
If you can't stand gender things in languages, German is REALLY bad... even "the" is split up into genders(der/die/das) - and the bad thing is that it gets ridiculous by making even OBJECTS have genders
Like a table is masculine, butter is feminine, and, believe it or not, a girl is neuter -___- Hahaha~ V. E. Lehkonen
Heh, yeah, tell me about it... German was the first foreign language I studied, and I was all WTH. But at least they did have a "neuter" option. "

Philoprogenitive 1) inclined to production of children; prolific. 2) loving one’s children. (Oxford Universal Dictionary) V. E. Lehkonen
replies: "Ah. Yep, regenians in general like to have children. They don’t "love" them though (but that’s mostly because "love" means possessive obsession to humans). I made up a new verb for "love" in another story of mine (Tales from Kyerrion), and that one keeps the caring and respecting bit while not being possessive or obsessive."

I find your stories most interesting, and if you allowed me to, I’d love to try and write some fan-fiction work with the race of Femehans, making some Original Characters to tell a tale while using those details you have provided for the races.
As a roleplayer I am always enchanted by those who are somehow strange in their gender, my favorite characters sometimes being Changelings in Dungeons & Dragons (3.5th edition race from Oberron setting) games. Shapeshifters who can spend their life as a male, female, or neither, or something in between.
In anycase, I’d love to chat with you if possible, discuss thoughts and ideas. I write stories for fun and my poor side tends to be in planning out worlds and coming up with great ideas from time to time.

Hey, I’m not sure if you’re the one to talk to or not, but I have a number of writings that have been uploaded for three months and are still unpublished. Seeing as you are an elfwood staff member, I was hoping you would know how to help me... V. E. Lehkonen
replies: "I just got back to check this and noticed that someone else modded your writings soon after you left this comment. Sure way to get stuff published, heh. I don’t know why it took that long, but I suspect it was some technical issue."
