These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.

Not only is this not weird in this 'verse, but she also insists on Alex performing his contractual duty as husband. Her attraction to him is explained away as part of her specialization as a hetaera (basically, a High-Class Call Girl).
