Taking prompts again... on a general theme of gender, sexuality, and how they go funky.

I'll write at least 150 words on everything I get between now and this time tomorrow. And, as always, tipping guarantees more wordage - and helps me buy the lovely giraffe carpet. For more information, my Donor landing page is here (and on LJ)

Why do your prompt entries always draw out the most bizzare prompts from me?

A cat that can change your gender is only fun as long as other people are petting it.

Great theme :D
Maybe something about royalty and succession. What do you do if there aren't enough princes/princesses to go around, and/or they're gay or asexual or infertile? What new paradigms do you develop to replace or adapt the old patriarchate models?

Probably says something about me that I misread 'infertile' as 'infantile' the first time around.

So I suppose a royal succession in which *everyone* agrees the prince/princess is simply entirely too spoiled to pass the crown to.

Hmm. Royal Reform School?

LOL, Royal Reform School :D Very suitable for spoilt brat princes/princesses. None of that 'I can't sleep because there's a pea under my mattress' crap :D

I was thinking more of a 'non-patriarchal. non-monogamous structure'; maybe allow gay couples to take the throne - allowing for treaties between their families - and make various arrangements about children for inheritance purposes.

Hmm. I don't think I ever got very far with one setting, but I vaguely recall once coming up with the idea of a royal family where part of the rules was that 2nd, 3rd, etc children were for forming alliances but that the heir was to marry a commoner to ensure the first loyalty remained with the country.

Or at least that was the public explanation, I suspected that the non-public reasoning was something along the lines of, "Have you looked at those countries with their inbred idiots on their thrones? Now go on, borrow the stable boy's clothes and go out and find someone to marry because you actually want to live with them."

Ever read any Mercedes Lackey? That's pretty close to the main story of Arrows of the Queen--the princess, who should be the Heir, is way too spoiled and bratty to inherit, so they need Talia to whip her back into shape.

I've never read Lackey, but many people have rec'd her. I really ought to read her work.

Ooh.

1. Linden: puberty and/or the Change. Possibly both at the same time? :D
2. A female Cali-slave who really wishes she was a male Cali-slave. You pick the reason.

Aww, poor li'l Meckil! But yay that he got to be more like his parent wanted! :D Though it's hard to say how happy he is about that...

The idea that female children make better daeva is interesting, since Meckil apparently started male and Jamian always, at least, identified as male.
