Um... I know this is a bit of an oddball place to post this, but there's precious few places on LJ that are really suited for this. I recently completed a Final Fantasy VII fanfiction wherein the focal character, Reno, is depicted as a hermaphrodite. It derives itself from talk in some fan circles about how feminine/androgynous Reno is usually drawn and written, and I thought, well, what if we followed on that a little? So I conducted an experiment.
I was interested in the treatment of an intersexed character in a setting just as hostile as our own world, and with a character who, himself, is at war with his own identity. A lot of the language in the story may be incendiary for some, as a result, but for me it was all about reader reflection. The story is... still, nevertheless, not very gentle, but I thought there would be some here that might be interested. =3
