Thanks for the responses.

I'm actually finding the starlight one to do quite a good job of explaining how the space elves work, since they're having to explain things to the locals a lot. And like, I don't have the time to go back and read all the stuff any time soon (which, for me, would involve first actually reading the Silmaril? And maybe watching Star Trek?), so I'm just gonna be like 'okay, so they're rationalist space elves from a magic-fuelled post-death utopia/the exact opposite of the Warhammer 40k Universe'. I feel like that about covers it for the purposes of this story.

"Silmaril" here refers to the Alicorn-lintamande glowfic continuity, not the Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien, by the way.

Does hair ever change color? Not shade, but something like going from pale green to dark blue or something?

It's been mentioned that children's hair can look different to their adult shade - Peka's hair looked white as a child before it darkened to pink. I'm not sure that extends to changing between blue and green, though, since the white could just have been a /very/ pale pink.

That is what I was thinking and Aitim doesn't really count for this purpose.

But the pattern Aitim is copying presumably exists.

Is he copying a pattern? Didn't he also photoshop all the family photos? One assumes that when normal Amentans' hair darkens or lightens the family photos don't self-update to reflect the change.

Which sandbox is this about? I always thought he just dyed blue and trusted nobody would complain since his paternal grandfather was blue.

It was In Color https://www.glowfic.com/posts/803

The thing is that was a lie and it's hard to guess any possible basis to the truth (if any) is there to the possibility of people changing colors like that.

If you're blue, which Aitim is, it is both legal and totally socially acceptable to dye blue. Aitim just thinks it'd invisibly cost him things so he conceals it; Maitimos tend to err on the side of concealing things that might invisibly cost them.
