How are you going to take responsibility?!

Or you could blame Spoon for creating WoD and its space elves.  You can't blame him for the fact humans and Cyrvans can have fertile offspring, however.  Blame Tolkein and D&D for that rule of human/elven hybrids.

Since this is a biology thread, while Cyrvans don't menstruate, do they still get hormonal during uterine cycling? :nervous:

Premenstrual dysphoria in the luteic phase is actually pretty rare, something like 2-5% at general diagnostic stringency. Grumpiness during the actual period can usually be attributed to physical symptoms, and even with those it's pretty difficult to detect cycling women via blind behavior test (I can't.) Given that Cyrvan culture would lack the hypochondriac social constructions that lead women to expect menstrual dysphoria as well as the actual physical discomfort and cramping, I doubt it.

Tolkien? You mean Jackson. Without considering much different lifespans, there aren't any more tangible differences between humans and Elves in Tolkien's works, ergo the presence of hybrids doesn't result in any biological problem. The long Elven ears are a stereotype.

Reread the Silmarillion. Humans, even Numenorians, have limited lifespans. Elves don't.

I came from chasing dreams to feel alone
There must be changes, miss to feel strong
I really need lifе to touch me

Pointed ears are direct from Tolkien. I quote:

Quote
"LAS(1) - *lasse leaf: Q lasse, N lhass; Q lasselanta leaf-fall, autumn, N lhasbelin (*lasskwelene), cf. Q Narqelion [kwel].Lhasgalen Greenleaf, Gnome name of Laurelin. (Some think this is related to the next and *lasse 'ear'. The Quendian ears were more pointed and leaf-shaped than [?human].)

Length I suppose could be argued.

 
Wha?  Huh?  What are you guys arguing about?  All I said was Spoon had to follow existing convention for human/elf hybrids, i.e. fertile offspring with longer lives than human norm and benefits from both species.  It isn't like WoD doesn't already follow a ton of other tropes. :nervous:

Yep, and that's sorta out of Tolkien too.

 
Which was sort of my point.

Indeed. I think Mobius was not on board.

Regardless of the prospect of PMS, Menstration, or Crossbreeds; Elf Ears are awesome.

Maybe.  It all depends on the person who has them.
