Re: Phenotypical Marriage


Fruit fly love may all be fabricated by the evil "Scientists," but there is an epic love story waiting to unfold...

In the world of the fruit flies, there is no love. Subject to the cruel abuse of the "Scientists", the poor creatures are objectified and considered soulless, seen for their phenotypes and nothing more. Wild-type eyes, honey, brown, vermillion, white - that's all they see. But they don't see the HEART.

It seemed like just another arranged marriage. But what began as a match made in Laboratory would turn out to be a match made in Heaven.

This is a timeless love story that spans generations! Days later, their many descendants would still remember their tale. The genotypes would live on.

You must have a genetics background. Brings back memories of when I used to mix Drosophila with different eye colors to get white eyes when two recessive genes were inherited by the offspring.

My genetics knowledge only goes as far as IB Biology (higher level) in grade 12, but I know the fruit fly stuff is common in university-level biology labs. Fun stuff.

I changed it because of YOU.

How did you know that was the guy anyway? I mean, yes, it is, but I don't think I really instilled that into the design.

Must be the expressions. The guy is perfectly happy with the arranged marriage, but the girl is wary.

Or maybe the pink wings?

The expressions, of course. You did the traditional "male as the pursuer" thang...
