While we’re on the subject, could you do a run through on some of the gender neutral/non binary/gender queer phrasings? Since ya’ll are so considerate in making prompts, would you mind being an educator on the topic of gender neutral phrasing? Sometimes IDK exactly how to say things in a gender neutral way/don’t know the right words to use, and it’s something we all should learn given the chance and right teacher. Mind giving a little lecture? I’d never seen words like “xir” until your blog

IT’S COMING! soon!!!

i’ve been planning a gender neutral words/phrasing list since like, May

but i’m currently working 40 hrs a week and haven’t had the energy 😦

hey, i know you guys have spoken about it before, so much so that its a tired topic, but i can’t seem to find it – is the use of pronouns like ‘xir’, ‘eir’, etc., instead of using ‘they’ a preferential thing? i guess i’m wondering: is it just something you like to do or does it enhance a narrative when you employ a pronoun as seemingly limitless as the ones you do? could you possibly link me to where you’ve already gone over this stuff, please? (i love you; thank you🌹)

hey! no problem! i’ve got a thing written about it here

in short: it’s partially preference, partially because it’s easier to have multiple gender neutral characters to a prompt if u can use different pronouns, partially because these writing prompts probably will be used for she/he using characters, and ‘xe’ or the like pronouns use the same sentence structure (xe/he is vs they are)

(also neopronouns are bitchin’, and a couple of the mods use them irl so why not use them here)

i am not… good at webpages, so we don’t have a permanent link up to that article on the tumblr blog yet, so there’s no problem with asking for it if you’re polite ❤

i don’t think they were commenting on the quality of the prompt, rather, they were just being an asshole about the pronouns used. not that it really matters, it was still an uncalled for comment, but just to let you know.

oh yeah 🙂 we know

people don’t like gender neutral phrasing ‘cause it’s ~hard to understand~

see: i don’t know how to relate to this without forcing it into a binary!! look, we’re talking about fashion, but the character involved might not be a woman

here on corvidprompts we’re a trans loving blog an nb loving blog a gender nonconforming gender queer gender fuck loving blog. we’ll always be queer run and chock full of queer content 

sometimes people are rude about it. sometimes we’re a little bit rude back

i love your prompts, especially those of succubus and angel/s. i have writer’s block but i have been able to write well thanks to them. thank you, your work is very good!

i can’t wait to get back to the angel/succubus prompts…

SEPTEMBER

I WILL RETURN

I searched through the blog but couldn’t find it, so I want to ask, how do you become a mod here? Do you need like… Mods? Idk

we always need mods

nah but excuse the humour i (mod crow) do fine running this blog 95% alone when im not fucking working

my job is super spoons eating excuse me

as for how i recruit mods… i do it in the cprompts writing discord, because i know all the regulars really well and can judge if theyre a good fit

when i need mods i go HEY WHO WANTS TO BE A MOD and then i pick out of the poor, unprepared fools who volunteer
