i want to say like if immortality was a scale 1-10, she’d be like a 6. she ages either extremely slowly or not at all, it has been shown that she can be physically harmed to the point of dying and she’s mentioned that she isn’t going to live forever but also she’s not about to die any time soon. it’s entirely probable that the only force capable of killing her was the lich, seeing as in the entire series that’s the only thing that was able to nearly kill her, and tho this might not be indicative of anything other than her persistent and bold personality whenever she’s faced with danger she never lets on that she herself is in any real danger. which could mean absolutely nothing or everything.
also, have you considered that she might be a reanimated corpse?? and that she’s being kept alive by whoever gave her life in the first place and her lifespan is however long they’re alive?
If you’re at a pool, and there’s some kids running, and the life guard shouts “No running!” do you interject with “EXCUSE ME, NOT ALL OF US WERE RUNNING.”
If you’re in class, and a classmate is eating, and your professor addresses his students, “There’s no eating in the classroom,” do you scream out “EXCUSE ME, BUT WE’RE NOT ALL EATING.”
The lifeguard and your professor are well aware who is doing what. There is no reason for them to modify their sentences because they realize you’re aware of who is doing what, too. They have enough faith in your intelligence that if they say, no running, or, no eating, you will recognize that if you are not already doing these things, you are in the clear.
When someone begins a post, “why do men do x,” they are not saying that every single man in this world wakes up and makes it a point to do x for the day, every day of his life. Nobody ever, ever thinks that. They exist around men and observe men on a regular enough basis to know that obviously not all men do x.
No. They are saying that they have witnessed men doing x enough that they would like to point it out. They are saying that in the whole group of men, there are men who do x, and they think it’s worth noting.
So there’s no reason to go “NOT ALL MEN” because everyone already knows not all men, and that’s why nobody said “all men.” They just said men. If you’re not the man it applies to, move the fuck on, just like you’d keep walking at a swimming pool or keep not eating in class.
If the words “some men” are keeping you from recognizing a post with very valid points, you’re the problem.
