For those of you who don’t read Skin Horse, our princess here is Nick, formerly a misanthropic gamer geek, now a helicopter run by a brain in a jar with a swear-filter using an gyndroid body as a drone. He’s very much a dude and seems to love WhimsyCorp films though hiding it as a hatedom. Skin Horse’s current mission is to retrieve a set of documents from WhimsyCorp’s hidden archive, which could only be done by a princess. (The start of the story is here )
Anyway, it resonated with me, even if I’m usually approaching it from the opposite direction.
(CN for the storyline: discussions of gender essentialism, gamer stereotypes, sexism, use of ‘gay’ as an insult.)
