Role Playing Girls, or "Giving Married Couples a Whole New Set of Problems"

So my husband and I are role-playing a pair of female night elves, and I have to constantly fight the urge to toss /love and /kiss at him in game. Because that would bring up some really awkward questions about the characters' relationship.

The basic story is that my Birdfall was a little girl at the same time as one other girl in her area -- Mistwing -- and the two played together as they grew up. Their personalities mesh really well -- Birdfall enjoys silence and Mistwing is mute. Though we still haven't figured out why Mistwing is a mute (working on it), the two women communicate without words -- not by telepathy or anything silly like that but by simple understanding. They know each other so well, and have lived without words for so long, that they don't need words.

My favorite moment in deciding all of this was when I described Mistwing as fairly feminine in the way she dressed and acted, whereas Birdfall tries to meld with her surroundings, to my sister-in-law. She had just described her character as hating anything feminine, and thus said "I LOVE that your husband is the girliest one of the bunch."

^_^; Yes. I made him a girly girl. WOO!

A big thank you to my hubby who allows me to publicly humiliate him for my own amusement. /hugs /loves
