Alright, for a Fairy-Tale-esque story, Character A is sword-fighting with an elf woman. Not a smart thing to do, but he doesn't have much of a choice. Is there any sort of item or thing he could do, magical or not, to win? Everything I find is just stuff like, "Don't eat elf food, don't start dancing, blah blah..." which isn't exactly helping me.
Alternatively, if there are also any solutions to beating warrior-women, I think that might work too. But the only thing that comes to mind is a story where they swaped him out for someone else superhuman, and that does't work for the story.
Hello, I love this community. I have a question that I feel I should know the answer to, as an English major, but I don't! I am reading through some microfilm right now of articles/satires written in the 1640s. Many letters are interchanged from the way we see them today (i.e. instead of a 'u', there is a 'v', or instead of an 's' there is an 'f'.)
Does anyone know why this was? Did they just write letters differently (the actual form) or was this a borrow-over from earlier English or another language? Did they not have as many letters as we have today? I'm just curious.
Thank you :).
