Torsten: I can’t believe this man rented you for a whole day. And it’s not even for a specific job!

Katya: Handsome foreign companionship is probably valuable in its own right. Especially if Leif wears a high collar.

Elisa: Don’t listen to the naysayers and wet blankets, Leif! If anything, this is romantic!

It won’t be long now before he sweeps you off your feet and buys out your contract! All his friends will envy him, getting a Sønska servant!

Leif: That’s a lot to get out of a one-day rental . . .

Torsten: You listen to too many fanciful romances, Elisa.

Elisa: You don’t listen to enough, Torsten!

UGH, fuck this nation sideways with its own fucking treasury full of blood money! And how old is that blonde kid?!

It’s okay, she’s in her 20s, she’s just short!

…and yeah, the scenarios that the servant class thinks of as “dreamy romantic fantasy” don’t reflect real well on Sønska culture, do they.

Your work in understatement is like Monet working with oil.

This entire culture is basically indentured servitude acting as a mask for borderline chattel slavery at this point. Did you expect this country to be so revolting when you thought them up?

Ahahaha, if only you knew.

But don’t let Leif hear you say so. He firmly believes that he comes from the greatest, strongest, most perfect country in the world.

Not to defend a system we find disturbing, but I would recommend you read some of the literature that comes out of the 1880s and 1890s England. It’s not that uncommon a fantasy from the servant class.

I don’t see that here though, I see the indentured Irish being shipped to America to work off the debts of the landlords or to serve a sentence. So them being so happy in servitude gets me pissed.
