Me: “I have questions about elf cannibalism.”
Non-Writer Friend: “You would.”
Writer Friend: “Actually… me too?”
Most of my questions hinge on prion diseases for elf cannibals, and if they can be avoided by eating humans, but then that’s not really cannibalism, is it?
…these are things I think about.
Of course I have a significant number of questions about the preparation of the dishes in elf cannibalism, too. Because you know elves won’t just Sloppy Joe that shit. They’ll CUISINE it.
They call themselves humans. What do you elves call them?
@lilithsaintcrow Dwarves, on the other hand: just chuck it in the cauldron
(No idea about either really, not steeped in Tolkien)
(Steeped? I don't even have a Tolkien tea sampler)
The thing is, ignoring magic for a moment, if species are close enough to fuck–then they're close enough to share diseases.
@lilithsaintcrow Elves don't talk about their cannibalism. They've been aggressive towards humans who do. Much better to write about the elves who eat fairies.
