Ask an Elf

Postby AnimeCanuck on Fri Sep 14, 2001 6:51 am

Hm...
Oh... Well... Thanks for answering my questions, guys! <P>I'm a little upset about your answer to my Leprechaun question though. Especially when you said that those Taski..whatevers ARE real. Are Leprechauns just Irish Elves that the Irish humans call Leprechauns? This greatly disturbs me, as it would make my comic "untrue" and incompatible for a TBE-Thermalyte crossover! (A thing I'd like to do in the future, maybe. ^_^)<P>Help!!!
And also.. I might as well give a question for Edvina, seeing she'll be here next.<P>Hi Edvina! How are you? What do you do in your big mansion all day to amuse yourself??<P>Oh.. and I'd love to see Magnus in there, and Hirschel again, as well ^^<P>Okay.. that's it for now. Please answer the Leprechaun question! Thankyou! ^^<P><P>------------------
-AnimeCanuck<P>And while your reading my most-likely idiotic post, you might as well check out my comic:

Hi,
I hope this works since I just registered.
NE way I have some questions;<P>1. Feodor, how do you feel about Talia? Are you two close? If so why do you always leave her behind and stuff her into drawers?<P>2. What is the tree of life?<P>3. What's with Hirsch always trying to bite people and refering to them as delctable and such? Is this because he's part vampire or is he just being a pervert?<P>4. I'm writing a fantasy fic which also refers to a pocket dimension but the creatures who live therw created this dimension themselves. Is this how the Elven world came about aswell? Was it created by the powers that be or has it always existed?<P>5.Why are so many hunters after Feodor? I'm a assuming its because its a theif but has he stolen anything of MAJOR significance that's caused this?<P>Thanks for your time! Sorry I think those questions were like a paragraph each.<P>

Em: Aiyah! Who are you and why are you in my head?<P>Feodor: ... Orriole! Your "filia" is embarrassing us again.<P>Em: Am not.<P>Feodor: Are too.<P>Em: Hey, one of those questions just hit right on target, ya know? That's freaky. Maybe the person asking those questions is really me in another dimension?<P>Feodor: I don't know you.<P>XD I sure do look forward to answering these! I just got me Net back, expect an update on Sunday come Tartarus or high water!

Just a quote to remember in light of the recent tragedy in New York. IT is one of my favorite ones to use when people ask me why I apose the death penelty.....but anyway.
"Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Than do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the wise can not see all ends."~Gandalf, Fellowship of the Ring~ J.R.R.Tolkien

Orriole: I am not all that certain myself. It has admittedly been a while since I read the books. They are sort of like big mean goblins, are they not? I think you would have to consult someone more familiar with the books.<P>----------------------<P>Actually, You'd have to have read the Simarillian to know the answer, I think. The true origin of orcs is back in the age after Morgoth stole the Simarils and caused the death of the two trees of light. A large number of elves left the islands of the Valar to chase him and bring them back. (sorry, I've forgotten most of the names of those things. I'm pretty sure it was the Second Age, though.) After a time, some of the elves were captured by the forces of Morgoth. After being tortured and corrupted by the dark god, the bestial humanoids that used to be elves were now orcs. Since that time, they've served the various dark powers of Middle Earth. <P>I wonder, has anything like this ever happened to you guys? From what I've been able to gather, nothing quite that bad has happend to elves in your history. But then again, you've never said what caused the Crossing . . .<P>Oh, and if those elves give you any more trouble, take this blaster Emily. Its quite useful. Directions for it can be found <A HREF="http://www.bobandgeorge.com/Archive/Sep011.html" TARGET=_blank>here</A>: Err, and if any redheads with flaming hair wearing a grey jumpsuit come looking for it, you don't know how you got it. Trust me.<p>[This message has been edited by Cerillian (edited 09-30-2001).]

All right, I have some more questions for the elven authorities. Ahem - <P><B>1. I always enjoy a good cup of tea in the mornings with my breakfast. What do you guys (the elves & Em if she feels like it) have for breakfast?<P>2. Did you enjoy having Mira stay at your house for the weekend?<P>3. Why do half of my questions have to do with important plot threads, so I never truly get them answered?</B><P>~Chris

Let's see, a question for Magnus. I think that I might have a couple. Let's see here. Ahh! Here we go!
<font color='steelblue'><b>
1. The Roman alignment is one that dissapeared on Earth some time ago. Will you tell us a little about it in the Elven World? I don't suppose you still wear togas, do you?<P>2. Em has said that you get more fire markings than anyone else she knows of. Are these brought about by anger, or something else? Do they hurt? </b> </font><P>Thanks!<p>[This message has been edited by Gillikin (edited 10-22-2001).]

Err, Gillikin? "Roman alignment?" I don't know if Emiko knows what you're asking, but I certainly don't. Do you mean Roman lifestyle, civilization, culture, heritage, and so on?<P>And for the Elves, I was wondering what you thought of modern fantasy portrayals of elves? Not just you guy's personal views, but what the rest of Elfdom thinks of them in general. Oh, and what I mean by 'modern fantasy portrayals' is the kind of stuff you'd find in today's books, games, video games, anime, and so on. <P>A few I am specifically interested in are D&D's version (not the D&D Movie! Not a bad movie, but really poor D&D mythology there), Lodoss(which is pretty similiar to D&D, actually), a couple different D&D novelists (especially Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman, and R. A. Salvatore), random video games, Shadowrun, Earthdawn, and Mercedies Lacky. As for Weis and Hickman, both their Dragonlance novels and their new 'Stone Well' (at least I think its that. That world only has their one novel and a newerish D20 game so far) are interesting. Mercedies Lacky has a couple different series involving elves, including one that involves Elves in the modern world. Plus, of course, Tolkien, the grandfather of the Epic Fantasy novel.<P>Any other specific examples you guys especially like or dislike are good too, of course. No need to heap derision on popular American culture's idea of Santa's elves, though; they earn that enough on their own . . .<P>Unless of course you just want to say that Pete of <A href=http://www.sluggy.com>Sluggy Freelance</a> has a really funny version of them. Not to mention Bun-bun's black-op elves.<P>Cerillian, aka that guy who reads way too much

::Breaks out his big book of TBE fanboy info:: <font color="#000080">"Orriole: Aa. By saying the elven world is slightly behind Earth, I mean that elves often associate with long-dead cultures, such as the ancient Egyptian and Roman empires, which no longer exist."</font><P>Did I mean 'Roman lifestyle, civilization, culture, heritage, and so on?' You bet I did. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"> Em knows how I think. That's kind of scary, but I think she can figure me out sometimes. I'm not an uber-fan for nothing.<P>(P.S. - Ask the Roman Elf a question <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif">)

Um, you may want to re-think that... As it says in Magnus's profile, he doesn't read. ^^;; Not only that, but he doesn't know any languages other than Latin and Elven, and by the author's name, I'd guess those are written in English...<P>(Yep, that's right, Magnus is not a smart little cookie. He's just a little cookie!)

And I thought I knew how to pick them. If you do ask a different question, Cerillian, may I suggest you don't ask about his parents. I think that'd be for the best. From what I hear, Maggie's got a bit of a temper, espcially around those two subjects. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"><P>------------------
Reading is power
power leads to corruption
corruption leads to a life of crime
crime doesn't pay
therefore reading makes you go broke?

You want me to ask a specificly roman question? Ask, and you shall recieve! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"><P>Magnus, are you well read? Specifically, have you ever heard of the <i>Master's of Rome</i> series by Colleen McCullough? I found it to be an incredible read, myself. <P>If you're not familiar with it, it consists of five books, from <i>First Man in Rome</i>, then <i>Grass Crown</i>, <i>Fortune's Favorites</i>, <i>Caesar's Women</i> and <i>Caesar: A Novel</i>. Each of them numbers well over 600 pages, too. The author is noted for her skill making the people come alive, while being completely accurate in reporting the political, social, and military events of the times. Well, as accurate as modern historians' knowledge goes, anyway.<P>If you have read the series, what do you think of it? And since elves have a longer memory than humans, does her vision of Late Republic Rome match what you were taught of it?<P>Cerillian, who doesn't call himself the guy who reads way too much for nothing . . .

Not a reader? Dang, all my best questions are about stuff I've read. Well, her main primary sources' are two books/reports written by Caesar; "The Gallic Wars," and, "The Civil War." I'm guessing he wouldn't be able to comment on those either, though.<P>Let me try and think of something else. Hmm, no, thats from an alternate fictional Rome. Err, no, also from fiction. <P>Heh, the only Roman related question I can think of that doesn't come from some novel I've read is this:<P>Some scholars believe that Rome, at its height, held about 1 to 2 million people. Others, looking at the area it covered, the size of the buildings, (Insulae, or 'islands', were similiar to apartment buildings. Almost a square mile of Rome was filled with these 100 foot tall, 4-5 story buildings. Actually, they could have built them bigger, but the Senate, in pre-empire times, made a law that limited them to that so they didn't show up the main government and Temple buildings.) the amount of food that was imported, and so on, hold that the population was closer to 4 to 6 million. Does elven memory record the actual number?<P>Heh, yea, thats pretty boring. Someone should teach that boy to read. That, or Feodor should volunteer to read a few hundred pages of something to him every day. While shielding the book from Magnus's magic with his body, of course.<P>Cerillian, pittier of the illiterate<p>[This message has been edited by Cerillian (edited 11-05-2001).]

<B>THE CAT-FIGHT</B><P>HEY! VI!
Let me tell you something.. WHO has loved Hirsch from the beginning? WHO has BOTH Otaku mascots of him, and finds it very cute? WHO likes his weird sense of humour?
WHO has drawn pictures of him over the web and in real life? WHO made the 1st and official Hirschel Kirsch fanclub? <P>The answer to ALL of those questions is ME!
MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
Not you, but ME! It is I, Christine, who has Hirschel on both MSN Messenger/Yahoo Messenger and ICQ. It is I, who entered a pic of the two of us dancing for Emiko's first contest. Not you.
I was the first one to draw any Hirschel fanart, dammit! I've been here from the beginning! <P>I LOVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!<P>Okay..
*takes a deep breath*
Now I better leave before I do anything to you I might regret later, say, in a court of law?<P>
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`<P>Anyways.. here's a question for Magnus:
I like fire, I always have. Since that is your element, I was wondering if you have an appreciation for it, or if you would consider yourself a pyro. What do you think the best thing about fire is, and why?<P>um.. okay.. that's not exactly what I meant to say.. but I hope both you and Magnus understand my question, and answer it how I hope.. argh.. That Vi girl ticking me off, saying that She's Hirschel's #1 fangirl has really screwed up my head.
~_~<P>I love you Hirschel! ^^

8 Bravo, Christine! Defend your craze! @_@ Just for that I think I'll draw a pic of you and him, just cuz I enjoyed that rant. *laugh* Anyway....<br><P>First off, hel-LO AAE! I had another fairy question... why does Talia talk like, well, a sugar-enhanced 5 year old, while Pinkerton talks like the adult she's irritating? Is it because she's only 12, and he's 74, (and did he talk like that too? o_O Please say no...), or is every fairy different that way? Or did Fey just konk her on the head too many times while stuffing her into drawers?<br><P>Sorry, that was a lot of words for one question. -_-0<br><P>I really enjoyed the black and white ink style you had for the 'Interlude' flashback. Will you continue to use that method for every flashback? ^_^<br><P>Well, enough out of me... I better get back to work. Ciao,
~Karasu<P>------------------

Ooh! New question! Thanks to that babewatch pic' of Pinkerton in a speedo ::shudder::, I want to know a bit about prellan. Talia's prellan look like leaves, while Pinkerton's look more like boxer-briefs. Are they different just between males and females, or are they different for all fairies? Thanks!
