It's funny, I also wound up playing Ladykiller as a result of watching Dan Olson's stream of it. I'd already been aware of the game since I'm a big fan of Christine Love's other work, but that stream is what sold me on it and helped me set aside my hangups long enough to play Ladykiller for myself and totally fall in love with it. Anyway, as an ace/aro person still trying to work out my own feelings about gender and about Christianity (hence the aforementioned hangups), a lot of what you wrote really resonated with me, and I really enjoyed reading (playing?) this, so thank you for making this!

Thank you so much!  I'm really glad it resonated with you, and happy to find someone else who found Ladykiller via Dan Olson's stream! C:

Really enjoyed reading your thoughts on this game. I'm an ex-Christian ace/hetero cis woman, so while my perspective's different, I understand a lot of where you're coming from wrt anxieties about sex. While my own reaction to Ladykiller was much less personal -- I think the structure and framing is brilliantly done,  so I appreciated it from that perspective, but I'm not really attracted to women -- the idea of "fiction as a safe space" really resonated with my experience of trying to explore and understand my own sexuality (and I think Folding Ideas' Fifty Shades video did a great job of laying out the concept in an understandable way). I don't know if there's a way to build a sex-positive, queer-positive framework that's in line with Christian values and doctrines, but I genuinely hope you can find something that works for you.

Thank you so much!  I appreciate that a lot.  Thank you for playing! C:
