Minkah and Emilia both display some common autistic traits here. Minkah’s infodumping habit, for one. It’s almost funny, someone who I doubt is a returning reader to this comic, let me know that they found this annoying.
Which is, well, I know. Non-autistic people *do* find it annoying and weird. Otoh, it’s a very common part of autistic social interaction. In other situations, like professional settings, Minkah would definitely make an effort to mask their autistic traits. But with Emilia and Erin, they’re safe to act like themselves.
I think it makes a lot of sense, but I’m definitely not surprised if non-autistic folks find this a bit strange.Tags
