i wasn't ready for this in 2020. space princess cinderella witih her angel dog boyfriend with purple eyes. the first truly post-Twilight sf. this is the trans Valerian, the gay John Carter of Mars, the neurodivergent Dune. i was not ready.
my favorite bit in this is how being forced to live in a vague simulation of the 2010's instead of a vague simulation of the 1990's has driven The Merovingian insane to the point where he looks like Michel Houellebecq and runs around like a homeless freak Cirque du Soleil street clown
