Magic Mondays: Faerie Apocalype – Tlacatl

[personal profile] rix_scaedu Asks:

Okay, if you have Meentik Panida, you can make a sheep, right?

If you have Meentik Tlactl and you’re strong enough, old enough, etc, can you make a person?

Sort of.

Panida covers all aspects of animals: their thoughts (such as they are), their emotions, their flesh.

However, Tlacatl only covers one portion of people (human or Ellehemaei*), the flesh. So, with Meentik Tlacatl at a high enough level (a student could not do this, certainly not a first- or second-year student), you could create a human body.

It would be a soul-less, mind-less zombie however, with no will, no heart and no thought. In order to create an actual person, you would need to use Tlactl in conjunction with Intinn (mind) and Hugr (emotion); this would be an immensely complicated Working.

* Technically, Tlacatl is “Flesh of Makers;” i.e., sentient tool-using beings. So, if you had Tlactl as a Word and encountered aliens, you would be able to Work them.

I am not entirely certain if Tlacatl works on dolphins…

Giraffe Call: Beyond A-Z

As offered in April’s Giraffe Call, I got enough prompts & donations to bring us past the 26 letters of the alphabet (all the way to J again!). So now we are open for prompts for non-English letters.

If you left a prompt in the original call or in Twitter, I already have it, no need to prompt again.

Over the next 5 days, I will post 3 stories to non-English-letter prompts. For every additional donation I receive, I will post another story, in addition to the donor continuation already offered.

At $80, I will write two extra 500-word continuations – chosen by prompters picked by random number generator.
