Fantasy and wish-fulfillment done well.
You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
— Eric Hoffer
Each book, movie and television show, we love reveals some of our own desires, hopes and fears.
Every story is a fantasy.
We don’t read fantasy (just) to escape reality. We read to experience a reality we understand to be true and can’t access as often as we wish for it.
The fantasy in this story is a girl becoming one of the Boyz while still maintaining her attractiveness and desirability, evidenced through the two good men who both honor her and value her skills.
