hey look, getting it done!

for [personal profile] beatrice_otter: Favorite thing/most interesting thing/idea about Vulcans that you've never used in a story.

Up until I wrote those snippets a little bit ago, it was the thing about photosynthetic algae causing redness in eyes/on lips! Before that, it was the existence of a subadult phase of maturation, but that's one of the very very first ideas about Vulcans I ever had -- I was about 16, 17 -- so a lot of my early Trek fic deals with it, in a way I wouldn't deal with it now.

I write so many of my ideas about Vulcans...

I've never written a serious exploration of Vulcan marriage structures, including the biology of pon farr and level of contact accessible via the mental link. I'm also wondering about alterations in marriage & family structure due to the reemergence of the mind meld as a practice, post-T'Pau.

Of course, you realize that my sekrit plan of getting you to write about this is to go "wow, those sound awesome!" (because they do) and "you should totally write that fic, I would read the shit out of it!" (because you should and I would)

Ulterior motives, I haz em.

works for me... And seems appropriate, for Vulcans. I am also intrigued, btw.
