SpaceFem Color: Gold

This is ... partly accurate.

you are gold

Your dominant hues are red and green, so you're definately not afraid to get in and stir things up. You have no time for most people's concerns, you'd rather analyze with your head than be held back by some random "gut feeling".

Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Read "Cutting Time" in Torn World

If you are a Torn World supporter, you can now read my story "Cutting Time" (Part 1 and Part 2).
Eshra faces challenges due to her late-maturing body.

This story is a major piece of sociological fiction.  It takes a close look at one of the things that can go wrong with the Northern custom of age-sets and the adulthood tests, and how people deal with that.  And it introduces Eshra, one of the very few Northerners with a "loner" personality, showing how she developed that way and how it affects her and the people around her.

Eshra leaned against the pole. Her ears burned. Her throat ached. She could not shut out the increasingly strident argument, and she refused to run away as if she had no right to be in her own village, even if it was just a collection of tents in the summer gather right now.

"Of course he shouldn't have done it," Agliir replied, her voice sharpening. "We know that! We've been following the stupid rule longer than anyone else! The point is, he shouldn't have had to do it. Brujan is nineteen years old -- he should be a man, able to have sex with a woman and not be reduced to a few stolen kisses with a fourteen-year-old girl."
