Because I just increased my number of piercings by three today... what kinds of aesthetic body mods and ritual modifications have you given your characters? I have everything from simple piercings and tattoos to characters who have had their eyes, skin, and even fingernails replaced for aesthetic and practical reasons. In terms of ritual modifications, I try not to mimic a given culture unless I'm specifically representing it but sf/f settings lend themselves to some very interesting variations on common themes.

Communicating change in appearance, or different appearance, without belabouring the point, can be hard. I find too often that writers feel they have to mention certain modifications over and over but without any context. I enjoy it when the reactions to those modifications are shown, or their inconvenience crops up, because it feels more real to my experience of having modifications myself.

Hark, a poll! )

I knew there was something I was forgetting. The irony is, I was writing. *facepalm* After ages of being blocked on a section, I got going on it and then it was time for bed and I passed out. At least... writing? So, here's Thursday's post. Friday's will show up soon.

This poll is a day late. )
