traveler said: Telling crows not to do things works, at least a lot of the time, but it's probably not worth it to catch them to do it, yes.

soundandleaf said: they should just interview crows that commit crimes like children, it's not that complicated. a baby who poops on someone is maybe going to worry their parents but not going to get executed

(...that's hyperbolic, right, it has to be.)

traveler said: Treating them like children is about right, yes.

5050501 said: except they don't have parents! or, they do, but their parents are ALSO CROWS
soundandleaf said: yeah they'll probably need some kind of modified procedure. I guess someone could adopt EVERY SINGLE CROW but the crow pop density is higher than the crafter one so I don't know if that's going to happen! maybe they can just catch them and tell them that was VERY VERY BAD and let them off with a warning the first time
gingercake said: how do you tell crows apart? I guess we could tag their legs? Would they mind that?
Permalink

traveler said: I don't think anyone has tried it. I'd expect some of them to put up with it but not all of them. It gets easier to tell them apart when you've been around them a lot, and they'll tell you their names if you ask, but that won't help Amentans much.
traveler said: They really don't cause problems very often, at least for us.

5050501 said: you can talk to them more easily though
yamo4 said: they're learning Tapap pretty fast, maybe they'll be fluent or the next gen will
Permalink

traveler said: Maybe! And they grow up quickly, if the babies learn it you'll have fluent adults in just a couple of years. And the ones who don't know it are smart enough to get help from the ones who do.

yamo4 said: my coworker is talking about how if you can get crows to learn more than one language they'd make decent translators since anyone can understand them
soundandleaf said: ooh
5050501 said: is there any reason to think crows could do that and crafters couldn't? traveler do you think you could learn a language?
Permalink

traveler said: I think I'd have a very hard time with it, I mostly can't tell the sounds apart.

Permalink
gingercake said: I read an article that said Tapap has very low sound variation.
soundandleaf said: this is because all the other languages use baby sounds and it's WEIRD, I can't watch foreign porn unless it's dubbed, it's creepy
Permalink

traveler said: The translation works well enough for me, anyway. It'll be interesting to see if baby crafters pick the language up at all.

Permalink
yamo4 said: probably if there's ever an orphan one somebody would try adopting them!
Permalink

traveler said: I'd worry that they'd grow up not knowing what to do with their territory instincts, if you did that.

Permalink
yamo4 said: yeah I wouldn't try it personally but I'm sure someone would go for it if they didn't have an uncle or whatever
gingercake said: the territory instinct could be cultural!
Permalink

traveler said: Any crafter can adopt an orphan one, it doesn't have to be a family member. And they'd be in real trouble if you tried that and it wasn't. Claiming a territory is hard enough when we know exactly what we need to do for it.

Permalink
soundandleaf said: how do you decide who gets to adopt a baby if it's just up for grabs no family members?
soundandleaf said: we have a list thing
Permalink

traveler said: If they have family the family gets first refusal, of course. Or if the orphan is old enough to choose for themselves they'll do that. Different communities do it different ways, aside from that. Just having whoever found them sort it out is pretty common.

gingercake said: what do gay crafters do if they want kids?
Permalink

traveler said: We use fleshcrafting for that; the parts aren't too hard to add. I bore all three of mine that way.

Permalink
yamo4 said: wait, what? want!! unless it would fuck up seasoning. wanna tell my boyfriend PUT A BABY IN ME and mean it
gingercake said: oh wow!
Permalink

traveler said: The hormones are a little weird, but not too bad for crafters. I don't know what it'd do to Amentans.
traveler said: You'd probably want someone who was pretty good at fleshcrafting the first couple of times, but I have a friend who is who I'm already trying to talk into visiting, so maybe soon.
traveler said: It is a little safer for women than men, if something goes really wrong a doctor can take everything back off again instead of just stopping it as best they can.

Permalink
yamo4 said: I guess I will let some lesbians try it first then
yamo4 said: after that though
5050501 said: ping
Permalink

traveler said: If you give me your contact info I can let you know when they're ready to try it with a man.

Permalink
yamo4 said: yeah you know what, sure
yamo4 said: breakout alias yamo99
gingercake said: are all your aliases yamo and numbers
yamo4 said: what's it to you
Permalink

traveler said: Got it.
traveler said: So you know what I do, what does everybody else here do?
