Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/VattasPeace''


Added DiffLines:

!!Other works contain examples of:

* IAmWhatIAm: This is a dominant theme of ''The Speed of Dark'', which is told from the viewpoint of an autistic character.
* TastesLikeFriendship: In ''The Legacy Of Gird'', a fellow from the Evil Wizard Class tries to make friends with Gird by offering him food, only to be rebuffed because in Gird's culture providing for someone establishes your superiority to them. They realize that their two cultures have been misunderstanding each other literally from first contact, as the EWC had always thought of Gird's people as natural servants because they were so eager to provide for the new impressive strangers.

* ''The Speed of Dark'': SomethingCompletelyDifferent for Moon, a novel set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, on Earth, about an autistic computer programmer.
