    I'm just really worried about this. I know it's common for young writers to be besotted by our influences (as John Scalzi puts it), but I don't just want to be that, it want it to be good.
    Just write like 10 novels and eventually you might have something original.

    How the hell did you get that from what I said? xD

    For some reason when people refer to the sun and moon as "he" and "she", I feel kinda happy. I don't know why, but personifying things like that is pretty interesting to me.

    In French, sun is masculine (le soleil) and moon is feminine (la lune), in German it's the opposite (die Sonne, der Mond).

    Just in case anyone was interested. I'm not sure where those previous comments fall in-context.

    Haha. I suppose the real answer to this is the same as with music - just play around with it and see what happens.

    For reals, though, if I have characters called homunculi and one of the eight of them is a shapeshifter (but it's not his primary power), do you think people will think I ripped off FMA? I mean, the idea of a homunculus has gone around for centuries and been used in plenty of other media. FMA's not even the only anime that uses them.

I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    It's funny how I have no idea what gender the sun and moon are in Dutch. I'm gonna go with female for the sun and shrug my shoulders at the moon.

    In that case, can every week be abs week too? You know, to make it fair. :P

    Also, @Goodbye Blue Monday; that's really interesting how it's swapped around. I guess the two opposing cultures saw the sun and moon in different ways, one being feminine and the other being masculine. I've always seen the sun as feminine and the moon as male, though. I have no idea why.

    It's actually weird that any language has sun as feminine, moon as masculine, because I feel like in cultures all over the world, there's a strong masculine association with the Sun and an even stronger feminine one with the Moon.

    In the latter case, the lunar cycle is the same number of days as a woman's menstrual cycle (28), so it's not a huge stretch.

    But most girls have boobs, whereas most males don't have visible abs. And even regardless of that you're more likely to see boobs on any given day than abs (since any kind of shirt will hide those from sight), so yeah :P

    Sun is warm and provides life whereas the moon is cold and dark? Most earth/nature gods are female after all whereas most gods of the underworld/death are male.

    In Greek mythology, Apollo (male) is associated with the sun and his twin sister Artemis was associated with the moon.
    That's nice.

    The Egyptian gods of sun and moon were both male.
