I'm sorry, but I think you misunderstand. This isn't because I am concerned for /Thurvayn/, but because I'm concerned about what you're saying by referring to a mixed character in such derogatory terms as though to be mixed is dehumanizing. Fictional characters speak to and about real people and it is our responsibility to take care in what we use them to say. There are many more ways to refer to Thur to differentiate him, and "mutt" should pretty much NEVER be one of them in the narrative.
(( mmhm. i see what you’re saying, and i’ll admit, i did not think of it that way in the least.
i dont believe i was clear, as i wasnt wholly sure of it myself, but now that i’ve had the chance to think it over, and discuss it a bit with a friend, i do believe it was Thurvayn’s personal views of his blood that has drawn me to using the term ‘mutt’. he loathes his blood, and thus believes himself to be one, yes. he’ll more than likely call himself a mutt before i would personally. i think i just fell into a bad habit of using it.
i never meant to throw offense to anyone, and i’m sorry if it has come out that way. i’m am forever grateful for you bringing this up, anon, as i’m a rather naive person and it’s always a help for someone to point out things i should change.
i will definitely work on this, but as i can foresee it being a word of use in the future, especially if it is describing thurvayn’s thought process, but i will significantly limit it’s usage in my description of him in normal narrative. ))
