So I decided to start reading this story. And it's a @Lovely mix of fluff and humor, with a dollop of the heavier background issues on top to add weight. Indeed, we see the familiar otome game plot line of the issue of aristocracy, but handled with significantly more nuance than usual; things like changing economic and military roles are forcing social and political questions to the fore, just like they have throughout history. Even the love is heavy at times, bringing up deeper questions about insecurities, sexuality, and social norms. It's a great story and I thoroughly recommend it to you all! The main reason I decided to make the thread was because I saw @AliceShiki posting in the comments, so I would be remiss if I didn't mention her as well.
