so i was thinking earlier about the interesting mis-match in terms of au ra emotes, which is that female au ra emotes seemed to have been designed with doman raen au ra in mind (which makes sense, because our first au ra character was yugiri), while the male au ra emotes seem to have been designed more with steppe xaela in mind (how very little we know about xaela/xaela men aside), and i was wondering if this sort of design optimization was part of why i tended to see more male xaela than male raen and female raen than female xaela among players and especially among players who did au ra shipping, and then

i realized

holy crap it’s all a bunch of lizard khal drogos and lizard daeneryses
