Hooray for asskicking! Yeah, what IS up with the hippieness? Did that come from somewhere else or is it just because of the pretty forests? I have not-elves in my comic but I CAN'T stop calling themelves (they have pointy ears because I inventedt hem when I was 12, but they also had antennae then. [slightly on-topic, list-wise, they're called Onda, which is short for Ondafalazm, which is a REALLY STUPID WORD. but it stuck. Wow, I like parentheses.]) The only solution is to steal their thesaurus and force them to make up a new word. Why ARE they all elves, anyway? I like how I never post anything conlang related. Maybe someday, when I'm not ashamed of my complete lack of knowledge. :\ -Kendra "We que sont toilette..." - Amy's shining moment in French poetry writing
