I'm hardly going to back out of Nanowrimo and then immediately write an entry every single day for the entire following month. No.

But I don't want to lose my fannishness without finishing the Nanonovel, so I'd like to talk Hainish cycle a bit over December. I'll do one a week. Help me fill in the weeks.

Stuff you can prompt me for: my thoughts on any of the worlds and/or stories below, and any of head canon or meta. You can get specific if you like!

Works/worlds: Another Story/Unchosen Love/Mountain Ways (O), City of Illusions and The Telling (Terra), Planet of Exile (Alterra, also called Werel), Rocannon's World (Rocannon's World), Solitude (Eleven-Soro), The Dispossessed and The Day Before the Revolution (Urras and Anarres), A Man of the People (Hain), Four Ways to Forgiveness (Yeowe and Werel), Gethen (The Left Hand of Darkness, Winter's King and Coming of Age in Karhide), Seggri (The Matter of Seggri), Aka (The Telling)

Gethen (The Left Hand of Darkness, Winter's King and Coming of Age in Karhide)

Something that just struck me: how did the Gethenian sexual system come about? Do we know that? Was it spontaneously evolved, or was it deliberate genetic tinkering? I have a vague memory that it's the latter. Could be interesting to know about the tinkerers, if so. Now I want, like, a story of a Gethenian going to Hain and digging into the archives.

Or you could talk about a piece of headcanon for this world.

ETA: Ha ha, I could probably provide all of your prompt needs for this post. : P
