Ask: What is the general life expectancy in LNF's time? Or, if it is the same, do people tend to keep their youthful looks longer?

Answer: The life expectancy of humans is longer than today’s average of around 70 years. It’s closer to 110. With the advances in medicine and healthcare, diets without cancer-causing chemicals, and genetic breakthroughs in Humaforming, humans can expect much longer, more comfortable lives.

And, I do see them keeping their youthful looks longer, though no amount of Humaforming would keep them looking young forever. The cells eventually break down, just at a slower pace. ^_^

 

Ask: How do people know the correct pronouns for Aster without being told? Is there something visible, a gendered difference in something ze wears, or is it tech based, that people glance at the IDs of others or something? Or are neutral pronouns the default when unsure? Given that complete strangers have used the correct pronouns for zir I'm very curious!

Answer: I always had it in my head that it was tech based. Everyone carries around those little FREQ devices (small holographic smart phones that connect to the frequency) as well as the ImageGlass (tablet type devices) and use those before approaching someone they don’t know or aren’t introduced to formally first. All genders are accepted, so there would be no fear of putting their gender or pronouns on paperwork. I figure the tech they carry could give the person approaching the appropriate pronouns. Just a quick click of the device. Of course, it won’t give out TOO much information to a stranger!
