#amwriting. Last night's creative exercise was naming and describing the ethnically-diverse delightfully-steampunky fairy seamstresses from the alternate universe of Paracelsian alchemical gnomes. Mom thinks these are a worthy inspiration for artists and illustrators. /1
These are all minor characters, and there are no big plot spoilers involved. All of the main characters are getting period-accurate Victorian-era clothing, including the capuchin monkeys. /2
While the goblins have chosen to outfit Sandra X (they see dollar signs in doing the costumes for one of the wealthiest women in the multiverse), and the gnomes are dressing up the Baron, the fairies are taking on the challenge of doing the outfits for the capuchins. /3
Artists? Illustrators? How would you like to see my notes? Do some art? All creations remain your own, and I make no claim to them? Draw or paint or what have you, some elegant Victorian steampunk fairies with rocket packs and sewing kits making clothes for monkeys? /4
Tell me you're not inspired! Say you won't! I dare you! I double-dog dare you not to take up your pencils and start sketching even before you see my descriptions! You'll do it, won't you? Like, comment, and share. Then, I'll post my notes and we're away! /end

Jordan Peterson wouldn't dare do that in MY HOUSE. Mycology is an alternate reality where gender binary isn't even possible, all fungi are gender-fluid, we can't even SAY "male" or "female." Tetra-polar mating systems. 36,000 genders...
Aspergillus nidulans is homothallic. Experienced mother cells (having divided at least once) swap genders with each cell division. Selfing involves activation of the same mating pathways characteristic of sex in outcrossing species.
A single individual experiences a different gender every few minutes? Not merely switching back and forth, but orbiting a matrix-space of gender options with every cell division? Where is his vaunted heirarchy in all this?
