There is nothing wrong with arguing over whether or not Mysta is a clone, it is being used as a device to keep the reader coming back because they want to see the answer. A common device used in all literature.What I do see as a problem is the classification of Mysta as something other than a sentient being with rights. There is a name for someone who ostracizes a group of individuals because of one trait they have and try to make them out to be less than human, but animals without . The word isn’t Troll.I really am disturbed, and uncomfortable with the use of words like “It” and “Creature” to describe Mysta. It is almost like using the “N” word as far as I am concerned. And I may find myself tagging posts where those are used, for just the same reason.If Mysta was to have sex and get pregnant. What would the child be? An it? A creature? Is Honeymoon a creature since her mom wasn’t human? Forget about her being a clone, or a regenerated being, or even someone who is brainwashed. If she is sentient, and can interbreed, then she is not an “It”.
