Your robot gf knows that “robot” isn’t the correct/normal term for her but she likes it a lot because she has a lot of feelings about old robot movies and how the characters got treated. If you’re down to listen she’s also got a whole rant about the origin of the term and it that associates her with the idea of synths as forced labor in an expression of her desire to rebel against capitalism by forcing it to acknowledge what she was built for and how it sees her
Also it sounds cool ya know

The princess gently buffed the whimpering dragon with a wide, soft brush; removing dull, loose scales.
"Darling, try to eat something. To keep your strength up."
The dragon shook her great head, "I'm too stressed, I'm just not hungry."
"I understand, but you'll get shaky and light headed if you don't."
"I just want a bath," the dragon sighed.
"Alright, but try to eat at least one knight afterwards. It's hard work luring them out here!"
synthposting, battlestar galactica ment
there's a scene in battlestar galactica we were reminded of recently that's ahella mood. One of the organic-mimic Cylons complaining about how limited that form is.
“I don’t want to be human. I want to see gamma rays, I want to hear X-rays, and I want to smell dark matter. Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can’t even express these things properly, because I have to—I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid, limiting spoken language, but I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws, and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me. I’m a machine, and I can know much more."
And immedietly a Silly campaign idea came to mind.
Every player is playing three kobolds in a trenchcoat.
None of the other PCs know this.
They fool only the other PCs, and NPCs don't call them out on it because they find it harmless and entertaining to play along.
"As a knight," the king said, "it is your duty to kill dragons."
"Very well, my liege," the knight said. "Um. May I ask why?"
"Because they hoard wealth without sharing, and people live in fear of their capricious moods."
"Very well, my liege," the knight said and drew his sword.

Happy, helpful reminder that "plural" is like "transgender" and encompasses a whole umbrella's worth of stuff!
Literal actual distinct entities in your head? Plural!
Aspects of your personality that you anthropomorphize? Plural!
The "angel" and "devil" on your shoulders? Plural!
But most importantly: "Plural" is a label you can choose to identify with. It's not a set of rules
