Icons meme

The Rules:

1. Reply to this post with 'Icons!', and I will pick five of your icons.

2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.

3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

4. This will - allegedly - create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

ranka wants me to talk about the following icons of mine:

- Dakota Bear Shares. I was feeling silly one day when I still lived in Creston, Iowa with my parents, so I took pictures of my stuffed animals and my doll Buddy doing funny things. I made a couple icons from those, and this is one of them. Dakota Bear (named after Dakota Fanning, but he's a boy bear) in this one is sharing with Angela Raccoon (RIP 2007). It's cute but I don't use it very much anymore because in 2007 a dog got hold of Angela and tore her to pieces. Pieces I still have, in my closet. :-(

- This icon is the symbol of Ahndahn, the God/dess of Order and Sex in the Traipahni religion "Yahgahn," which I am a believer in. (It's a constructed religion I made.) "She" (all Traipahni Deities are hermaphrodites) is consort (wife/husband) of Shao'Kehn, God/dess of Chaos and Protection. There are three sentient species native to Traipah, and one of them - the Ah'Koi Bahnis - are humanoid. The box is, of course, a symbolic representation of the genitals of the Ah'Koi Bahnis (they have a penis, but it is retractable and prehensile). The yellow things represent both A) The three moons of Traipah. & B) The three phases of each moon. So those three yellow moons actually represent 9 different moon phases. This is important because 3 and 9 are highly sacred numbers in the Yahgahn religion.

- Shao-Dahn's Arch. This symbol is a combination of the above symbol of Ahndahn and the Shao'Ahn'Dih'Gahn of Shao'Kehn, representing their marriage and also representing the fact that Chaos and Order are inseperable - you literally cannot have one without the other.

- Our Lady Of Perpetual Grace, Saint Tara Lipinski. When I was younger, about 15 or 16, I developed an epic crush on Tara Lipinski, an ice skater. It continued over the years and when I was about 18 or 19 I discovered Discordianism. I declared her to be a Saint and something akin to a Goddess. I even wrote an entire Discordian scripture called Lipinski 66.69, which is in a 6x6x6 format (6 main sections, those sections divided into 6 sections, and THOSE sections divided into 6 more sections), so it is rather long (I have it in two files). Somewhat recently (last couple years) I re-read some of it and got inspired to make this icon.

- Honesty Is The Best Policy. This icon is basically a scene from the anime Elfin Leid (sp? German for Elf Song). The anime is about a new species of mutant humans called Diclonious. They have horns and invisible extra arms called vectors that can allow them to "fly" and to cut things. The anime revolves around the adult Diclonious named Lucy, who was not treated well by humans (no surprise there) and who, as a child, snapped psychologically and went on a murderous rage, killing people with her vectors. She was captured and further treated badly, and later escapes.
The scene in the icon is from a flashback, I think from the beginning of her rampage. I don't want to spoil any more of the anime, but it's not the boy she's killed in that scene... it's his sister. All the text except for "The moral of the story is: honesty is the best policy" is from that scene. The text I added makes sense in context, but that would require spoiling the anime even more.

I suspected that, but never found a fitting occasion to ask.

(they have a penis, but it is retractable and prehensile).

Just one? There is a planet in my mind where the sentients have multiple of those as children and become females as adults... Must be a different one. It is a good place to go in ones mind :) .
I wonder how that did end up inside my mind, though... Have I been there, or have I been recombining things I read?

Of course, for everything that does not contradict itself, there exists a universe in which it is a reality. Making stuff up is the same as remembering it. And perhaps remembering things is the same as making stuff up, because all memories are inaccurate, and the past doesn't exist anymore anyway.

Heh....my subjective (to me, my true) species, the males have a baculum (aka a penis bone). So do Xeltrigan males. It makes shagging a bit longer and more complex than it is in humans. And our males have a crude reference to Hominin males: "Limp-dicks."

Of course, we females also have verifiable estrus cycles as well, which makes us different from the human female in a real way.

The pteranthropans on my world lack internal fertilization. No penises of any sort. And sexuality only occurs during the mating season, when near a body of water (they are amphibious in nature). In addition, sexual maturity does not occur until rather late in life, around 30 or so Earth years. Of course, they age slower than humans in general, so they live a lot longer.

They find human sexuality extremely bizarre. Outside of the mating season, their males and females can work side-by-side without any sexual aspects coming into play.

Roes'in and Xeltrigan have estrus cycles. Ironically my partnership with a Xeltrigan works better, because my estrus cycle and his species' rut co-incide almost precisely.

And we age at a very slow rate, we age for hundreds of years to get to a 1/10th the human aging rate.

I find this whole world bizarre for a variety of reasons. To the people of this reality, it seems perfectly normal. To me.....it's one of those dimensional oddities with a Domination-type setting, albeit very benevolent compared to some, though less compared to others. >.<

And on the other side of the spectrum are the Ah'Koi Bahnis, who are hermaphrodites with sex similar to human style, and sex is a big part of their entire lives. But the differences in both species biology and their sociology make it respectful and so most of them are usually able to interact with humans without a problem. But humans have a lot of sexual hangups that just don't occur in AKB culture. Some pretty major differences in sex laws on Traipah. In that, AKB sex law basically says "If it's involving willing partners, it's okay." There are things you can do on Traipah that would get you a lot of prison time in the US, even the more open-minded areas of the country. Hell, probably would get you arrested even in the most liberal European countries, come to think of it.

If they all become females as adults, does that mean the entire adult population has to engage in pedophilia to reproduce?

I wonder how that did end up inside my mind, though... Have I been there, or have I been recombining things I read?

I hadn't read anything perverse enough to have been recombining when I came up with the AKB and other Traipahni species. But I fully admit it could just be a result of my own perverse mind, and I could have been inspired by earthworms. After all, the penis of the Traipahni peoples looks like a green earthworm (minus the slime and the segments, and also thicker).

Of course, for everything that does not contradict itself, there exists a universe in which it is a reality. Making stuff up is the same as remembering it. And perhaps remembering things is the same as making stuff up, because all memories are inaccurate, and the past doesn't exist anymore anyway.

Amen!

Well ... there are animals that do that. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbion

Yes, obviously. But that wouldn't be a problem issue to them now would it?

I remember reading one SF book in which the young (of a non-sentient but highly intelligent and dangerous carnivore) species were not only the males but also the primary source of food for the females. I can't remember the title.

And weren't the adult Martians in Stranger in a Strange Land all male?

One doesn't need to read naughty things to get ideas like these :) .
