** While Britomart's homosexuality might be fun to imagine, this particular example is highly likely to simply result from ValuesDissonance. The theme of Britomart's story is "chastity", and, indeed, back in the day for two women to share the same bed was considered chaste. The idea that there might be sexual attraction between them simply didn't occur to the nobility of the era! Amoret is relieved to find out that Britomart is a woman because, by the standards of the period, for her to share her bed with a man who was not her husband would've been a grave sin for both (not to mention all but inviting him to have his way with her - men, after all, are not so normally virtuous).

* LesYay: Dear God, Britomart and Amoret [[MemeticMutation drink estrogen and piss yuri]]. Let's remember the scene where Amoret agrees to share a bed with Britomart only ''after'' finding out she's a woman.
