Week 34 - Words for Love [Aug. 10th, 2007|07:58 am]

Do your people have any special words for love? Are different types of love distinguished from one another, or is there just one word that you have to specify when people ask what type of love?

Forgive the lack of prompts from me on my end - I haven't had internet at home for quite some time* now. I apologize.

*This meaning almost a month, with three days or so that I did have it, and then my modem exploded again.

Who records it and how? Who reports the current news/history and by what means? How is ancient history studied, if it is? How is it remembered? Oral, written, something else? Where do people go to look up history, what resources do they turn to? How accessible is it, how quickly can it be accessed, how wide spread? How much attention is paid to it?

Also courtesy of youraugustine. :)

"Households: what makes one?"

Kind of open-ended, that. Feel free to answer as you see fit. :)

Since Rose is MIA this weekend, I'll be posting this week's as well.

Also courtesy of youraugustine as my brain is largely gone.

"Childrearing: who does it, why, what does pregnancy/gestation entail, what's appropriate or not appropriate for children, what status do children/child-rearing have, what constitutes a crime in relation to children?"

(Brilliant question, isn't it? Go forth and answer!)

This one is so very much stolen from youraugustine. And her words, not mine. For she said it better than I.

Family structure: Who's in charge? Why? What are the relationships to one another? What's the line of descent? Who is considered related to whom?

I'm braindead and useless right now. Here, have a question from billradish. ^_^

Decoration: Personal decoration, decoration of home and personal belongings, and decoration of public buildings. What are the fashions and adornments like? Do they change often? Is there any meaning to them?

[Current Mood |thoughtfulthoughtful]

billradish came up with this one. :)

By the way, y'all, feel FREE to suggest prompts to me if you want. I dunno about Rose, but I for one am having to scrape to come up with stuff lately.

What sorts of jobs do people want? What sorts of jobs are something people look down on? (Radish made the comparison of doctor vs trash collector.) How do people get these jobs? Interviews, degrees, training, inherited, none of the above? How much of the aforementioned is choice?

(and once again the question isn't "is it my week to post a prompt?" but more like "...what day of the week is it again anyways?" [sigh] I blame the holiday. It messes with my internal clock.)

What games and/or sports do your people play? What's fun recreational with some sort of rules involved? This covers everything from games of solitaire to team league sports - what's popular? In what social circles, under what occasions? Cards, dice, gameboards, ballgames? What kind of social network grows up around the games - betting, fans, etc? What do people do for fun?

Week #26 - Naming Patterns [May. 27th, 2007|08:44 pm]

Thanks to youraugustine for the idea! And the reminder!

What sort of naming patterns do your people use? Naming conventions, that sort of thing? Do girls have specific names? Boys? Surnames, family names, order of names, name endings, name beginnings, number of syllables?

Discuss! :)

Week #25 - Music [May. 21st, 2007|11:23 am]

Eeep! Sorry, I missed over the weekend. Belatedly, here's the prompt, suggested by larathia

What kind of music do your people have? What genres, what instruments? More broadly speaking, what is appropriate for when and where? Do certain types of music appeal more to certain people, by age or rank or social status? Are certain important social things usually accompanied by certain pieces of music? How are musicians who create the music viewed? Is it a hobby, a career or a vocation? What sort of culture has developed around music, if any?
