The last year hardly can be named quiet for me. It has passed in constant struggle, and, mostly, there was a struggle with myself. With my own fears, own indispositions, prejudices, memoirs, weaknesses, shadows from the past and uncertainty of the future. I hope, that could overcome the majority of them. But it does not mean, that there will be no something new soon.
As to the next year and my hopes... You know, I think about G'Kar and that he travels somewhere there, among stars now... While we live here, on this planet, trying to restore it from ruins... Among this routine, political intrigues and so on... I catch myself on thoughts that I envy him.
I always wanted to travel, wanted to see the new worlds... And I was very close to this dream that year when worked on Babylon 5.
But the fate developed in such a manner that I cannot afford such trip. Someone should restore our Homeworld. Someone should organize all this invention. Otherwise those ones who travel among stars, can,returning, to not find their planet. All right... I am ready to reconcile to the role of the keeper... But the dream still lives somewhere inside me.
Who knows, perhaps, the next year I can carry it out?

I believe, the question is formulated a little bit incorrectly. There are no the worse qualities, there are moments when your best qualities start to work against you.
I do not like to be engaged in self-digging, but all right, I'll try.
I think, that I know myself well enough. I come from Fifth Circle, do not forget it. The good warrior should know the strong and weak features to be able to take advantage of them in case of need.
My main quality which always irritated my teachers and relatives (yes, is time to tell it frankly) it is irascibility. I was easy for enraging, and consequences can be unpredictable.
If to add to this obstinacy, the terrible mix turns out.
Yes, my teachers were worn out, when tried to transform it to something more useful.
Let's continue the list.
I am workaholic and perfectionist. If to recollect my obstinacy and irascibility, you can imagine, what can happen, if it was not possible to bring any thing or business to perfection or even to finish it.
I am exacting to people and their acts. As well as to myself. I try to be indulgent, but it is very difficult for making sometimes.
But the worst, perhaps, is my rancour. I can forgive the person for some offences, I try to not go in cycles because of trifles... But even when both sides have apologized, the conflict is solved... These offences remain in my memory, somewhere in a secret place, they lay there, and can pass a lot of time, perhaps, I'll not recollect them anymore... But if the person will repeat offence... These memoirs instantly appear in my memory, fresh as though it happened yesterday.
When I was the child, I have eaten fruit, having disobeyed the father. Fruit looked very beautiful, and I thought, that it will be same tasty. But it appeared rotten inside, and I could not get rid of disgusting taste in a mouth long time.
A lot of time was required that I began to eat these fruits again. But all the same I concerned to them intently though they were very tasty.
The same sensation with my rancour.
I can forgive insult or offence, but this rotten taste... It dozes somewhere in the subconsciousness, ready to appear as soon as this offence will be repeated...
Perhaps, this inability to forget the last insults complicates communication with me. Perhaps, this my feature forces me to keep aloof among friends, not speaking about enemies.
I can overcome my irascibility, my obstinacy and perfectionism. But as to memory... Here I am compelled to recede.

Topic 156: If you could change one aspect of your society, what would it be?

Whether do I want to change something in our society? My world has passed through so much changes for last hundred years so it is uneasy to me to answer this question. Perhaps, someone will name me as conservative if I'll tell, that I would like to return our old traditions back sometimes. This idea appears in my head each time when I look at our youth which tries to imitate blindly to aliens, copying their customs, laws, manners. What a youth! I noticed similar things among old guard, too.
Culture and traditions of Narn society were created by centuries, millenia. It can seem too rigid, too non flexible for a stranger who has not grown in our society, was not born on our planet. But nevertheless, this system worked and works, that is why I would think in details before to rush to change something.
Yes, I am conservative bitch, and I do not hide it. But there is one thing which irritated me in the past, and now looks for me full absurdity.
I speak about the vagaries of birth.
Our society consisted from system of Circles for a long time. And I think that it is good structure. Each person should know the place in the society and do that work for which he or she is intended. But...
The title of the Supreme Governor can be inherited only. I think it out-of-date concept. Moreover, it is unfair! I saw these notorious descendants of ancient and famous families. Stupid, having little education, spoilt with luxury and flattery people! They achieved nothing in this life, using a merit of their ancestors. While there are more worthy candidates around. Why they cannot take a place for which they suit in hundred times better than these coddled aristocrats?
It always irritated me in a youth, because I knew, that I was cleverer and more talented than many of those ones who stood above me on a scale of ranks. Nevertheless, they gave orders (rather incompetent sometimes) and they got awards for merits of other less notable people...
It irritates me now, after Occupations and war, which have brought so many changes to our world. These people were not among our war-leaders who battled to Centauri invaders but as soon as danger passed, they demand their warm places back! Because their fathers and great-grandfathers owned them! What a bosh!
I do not mind the Supreme governors. The leader is necessary for our people. But give me the worthy leader, strong and clever, the person whom I and my people would respect for his/her own merits and personal qualities, instead of long family tree and a thick purse.
Ah, I do not call for open revolution, no-no, guys, I always was against chaos in the government... But I think, we should change this law. It become obsolete and should remain as the fact of our history only.

"Na'Toth, you do not listen to me again!"
Aunt La'Eth sighed wearily, having noticed, that her eleven-year niece looks in a window instead of heeding her words.
The girl slowly turned a head to the aunt. Her scarlet eyes looked directly at Narn woman.
"I listen to you, aunt."
And she yawned, not trying to hide it from her at all.
La'Eth never distinguished by special patience, frowned, having seen so frank expression of disrespect. One more instant, and sonorous slap in the face sounded in a room.
The Narn girl silently touched a cheek which began to swell up, but not made a sound, only her eyes were narrowed defiantly.
The aunt approached to her, lips squeezed together in a thin line, eyes sparkled, as two rubies. During this moment they were very similar: the aunt and her niece.
" If you listened to me then repeat that you should remember. List to me names of our ancestors!"
La'Eth almost hissed these words.
The girl impudently faced her. She knew, that the aunt does not bear those ones who dare to argue with her, but could not restrain any more.
" I'll not repeat it. And I do not want to spend my time for learning of names of people which have died many years ago. "
The aunt opened wide a mouth, stunned with her words.

I could tell to you a lot about a revenge. Those ones who know my people, understand, what a lot of value we give to this tradition. It is a core on which our society is based.
But when we speak about a revenge, we don't mean primitive thirst of blood and severe requital to the offender.
When we declare Shon'Kar, the Blood Oath, first of all, we demand our right on justice.
We believe, the avenger is instrument of the gods, intended to punish the one who committed a crime or put heavy insult to somebody and when the person says a sacred oath and cuts the forehead meaning that is going to fulfill the oath, this Narn does not belong to himself/herself any more, he or she only executes will of gods.
There are years can pass sometimes before the avenger can finish his business. It happens so, that many generations can change, before it is possible to fulfill an oath.
But time has no value here.
Sooner or later, but justice will be restored.
The right to revenge gives the person the purpose of a life and an occasion for a life. Yes, it is paradoxical, but I know many Narns which are alive only for the sake of it. I had such oath myself.
You, humans, can tell, that it is barbarous custom and there is a court which can solve these conflicts. But I'll allow myself to tell, that this "justice" is a sneer at our custom! I saw this "circus" when they have prevented me to kill this bloody Dilgar bitch, Jha'Dur the Death Walker, there in dock. I saw, that their so-called "court" enabled to slip away from punishment to the woman which hands never to wash from blood of innocent souls which she has ruined.
Glory to Holy Martyrs, Vorlons had other sight at things. Blood can be washed off only by blood. And I am glad, that they knew it.
We have no similar judicial comedies on the Narn. Similar questions are solved by the offender or by his family. That fact, there is always will be the person who will force the criminal to pay for committed deeds, sooner or later, in this life or in another, in this world or in another, fills our existence with sense.

Let's tell so, I prefer to have relationships with one partner, but... I should have an opportunity to choose him among other applicants. Not that I was too captious in this question, but it is accepted in our society. Hardly Narns are monogamous people in strict sense of this word. Both spouses can live together, and at the same time have one or several lovers. It is normal. It not only disciplines both spouses, but also strengthens relations of their family with other clans.
Traditionally, Narns get family only if they are going to have children in the near future. Here comes time to choose the unique soulmate in life. This is serious decision, and the price for a mistake can be very high.
If Narn woman has an opportunity to choose the partner, it increases chance of her future pouchlings of a survival because she can find the best and most careful father for her children. Yes, we marry only one partner, but it does not mean, that we say goodbye to our lovers. In most cases they remain our good friends who are always ready to come to the aid in case of need.
In the world where every day passes in struggle for a survival, such partnership is of great importance.
Certainly, it does not mean, that we do not feel jealousy. More likely on the contrary. Rivalry generates real hurricane of passions. But it is always better to see all qualities and features of the partner before you will be held down together with a marriage vow. Also what, if not the competition helps to understand desire of own heart in the best way?
As I already spoke, the price of a mistake can be very high but for this reason we shall offer much for the sake of an opportunity to find the worthy partner.
Strict monogamy, in my opinion, deprives us with this happiness. It weakens both spouses. They become too confident in own invulnerability, and their life turns to boring routine very soon.
Hardly it happen, when you know, that your mate can always find someone more interesting and sexual in the other place. It increases a level of adrenaline in blood, you know.

Only one? It will be difficult for choosing. All right, I'll try. Humans! These aliens constantly puzzle me, and it is inconvenient to me to take any separate strangeness.
I could tell to you about baseball which the significant part of population of human's planet is keen on.
I understand nothing in this game. Nevertheless, humans can spend all day for just to watch, as other humans run after a small ball, swinging with bats. Perhaps, it is interesting to participate in this madness, but to watch only... No, I do not understand.
Humans in general are possessed by balls. The most part of their sport is based that the crowd of people kicks, throws or chases balls of various form and the size. This is very amusing show sometimes.
Or specific human humor. Here, at Babylon 5, their well-known show "Rebo and Zooty" is broadcast. Ambassador G'Kar always roars up to tears when looks it. But I do not see anything amusing there. Moreover, all this looks very silly. Probably I miss something, perhaps, I should read more information about Earth and its inhabitants. Don't know...
But there is one most amazing quality till now causing bewilderment in me.
the most puzzling thing in humans )
