October: Giving Up Humanity

Laini says, "In Hatchling, the Druj have given up their humanity in exchange for other things. What is humanity? What is it that they've given up? What do you think is the nature of humanity?"

If giving up humanity is giving up one's soul, then no no no!

I like being human. I like having the mental and physical capabilities that we have, being able to reason, speak, communicate, move, and function as we do. I like being able to sing, dance, move, and laugh like we do. I like my senses, common and uncommon, mental, physical, emotional. I like being human.

Now, if someone said, "Want to shapeshift into another animal for a day?" I'd try out being a cat.
