There is a quote, which I, of course, cannot lay hands on, either from Terry Pratchett, but perhaps quoting G.K. Chesterton, that talks about how fantasy allows us to explore all the aspects of the human condition in a way that holds it just far enough off to be seen more clearly. I think that’s what you are describing here. Very well done!
