Elves and ears

(1/1)

dfloyd888:
Is there a good way to explain to men why elves ears are leaf shaped or otherwise pointed?  When out, I keep getting asked that.  I usually reply to "Why are your ears pointy" with "Why are yours round?"  As a dark elf, I am tempted to state that pointed ears are a sign of education and class, but I don't want to antagonize.

Elennare:
Can't say I've ever run into that particular question.

Seems an odd thing to ask.  I like you're response.  Seems like "Because I'm an elf" would work as well.  That's the way we are, same as why theirs are round.

dfloyd888:
Another thing that befuddles me are people who ask, "what type of Vulcan/Romulan are you?"  There are obvious differences between an elf and a Star Trek race, even though both share pointed ears.  Even factoring out garb, the hairstyles are completely different.
