Hey!





You cheated!!!

I knew she'd back out (one way or another; this one did occur to me). But you snuck in a heart spark! Risa doesn't freak out so easy.

And after you agreed to everything aside from the li'l trick I pulled on you.

Hahaa. But this is a good one too. Too late to RUN AWAY now! Both of them could have been elsewhere very quickly. Are they stupid?

What to say when Risa demands to know who you are and what the hell are you about with my Natsu?


LOL
Who's the green haired lady you were running off with and what were you up to? Or do we go with the common assumption?

Actually, she just heard both their names ;-)

Would be funny if she calls them directly by their names:
'So, Xandy and Amaranthe, what are you exactly?'

Risa may have to be blunt as she needs to look out for the girl she loves. But that doesn't mean she intends to insult them like the way you said. To ask what is to reduce them to creatures and objects of curiosity. Denying them as personalities who think, feel and are aware. It's diminishing and demeaning. The way to go is to ask who they are. Not what. Ara ara ara.

I think we have a cultural misunderstanding ;-)
It was not meant as insulting, and would not be in my country: it is visible that they are not human, hence the 'what are you' in my sentence ;-)

You might not intend to insult but to say it that way is insulting. They aren't human but they are sentient beings who are human like. They are personages. Personalities. It is necessary to speak to them as though they are human. If not, it is as though to tell them they are lesser beings. No, it is needed to address them in a manner which puts them on an even keel with us.

It is a simple matter of grammatical rules, which you are wrongly turning into something it is not.
- Asking 'who' queries for identities, which she already had, and therefore did not need to ask.
- Asking 'what' queries for nature, which could not yet be sure of.

To ask who also inquires as to nature without reducing a sentient being to a creature of curiosity and low import. Goes to context as well. And nature or makeup has something to do with who we are. It is better to consider the implications, ramifications and reprcussions of language when addressing unknown sentient beings than to speak so haphazardly. And no, Risa did not know their identities. You might look into the Zen of identity. Gestalt as well.

And the author has chosen the better option.
