What it says on the tin. Jon switches names, starts on hormones, deals with mood swings, and gets support from almost all quarters, in the office and out. Stephen has a rocky time with the whole idea, but who didn't see that coming?

Last-minute amnesty fill for [community profile] queer_fest, for the prompt: (skip) Any fandom, any MtF character, why she doesn't want surgery--a girl can have a penis dammit! This should NOT be a problem!

In spite of the timing, it's been in progress since back when that was an [community profile] lgbtfest prompt. Takes place around spring/summer of 2009.

In today's issue of Neglected Commentfic Roundup Week, I bring you...mpreg!

The first line is ripped from canon; the rest of the fic just takes that and runs with it. And, yes, it's another of these fics. Follow-up in Ten Roads Converged.

Mirror on the AO3.

'Coming up next!' interrupted Stephen, hands planted on the desk. 'More very important personal news that Jon Stewart doesn't have time to pay attention to!' )

Title: Pace Yourself For Me

Characters/pairings: "Stephen"/Jon, family
Two disclaimers, with love )

This is a jumble of ideas for some kind of college-age AU. One written scene, one illustration, and a bit of synopsis. Stephen's deeply closeted about his attraction to guys, and feels much safer when he appears to have a girlfriend. Which works out fine for Jon, who's in a closet of his own.

Most of it was originally posted here. A link is going on the Transverse masterlist. And, yes, the title is from the Killers song.

(For the record: if anyone wants to take this concept and run with it, either using these specifics as canon or contradicting them completely...go for it.)

Title: The Gender Ninja of Oz
Rating: PG-13 (light sexual content)
Characters/pairings: Ozma/Dorothy, Tin Man, Scarecrow, Toto, Jack Pumpkinhead
Contents: Major spoilers through The Emerald City of Oz (book 6); minor ones through Tik-Tok of Oz (Book 9).
Disclaimer: I didn't create these characters...not that it matters. Public domain FTW!
Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest, prompt 3782: Wizard of Oz series, Ozma, Ozma's gender identity is complicated - zie wasn't fully satisfied as a boy when zie was Tip, but isn't fully satisfied as a girl when zie is Ozma. On top of that zie is in love with Dorothy. Is there any resolution to this?
Notes: Ozma/Tip's pronouns will be going all over the place; sometimes they match hir physical body at the time, sometimes not. Most of this sticks to Baum's canon, though I have pulled one detail from Ruth Plumly Thompson: rather than staying at the same age forever, characters can choose on their birthdays whether to grow that year. Title nabbed from Genderfork. Full-size versions of the illustrations will be showing up with my other Oz fanart. And, as always, other trans!fics are here.

"I might try it for awhile,—just to see how it seems, you know. But if I don't like being a girl you must promise to change me into a boy again."

"Really," said the Sorceress, "that is beyond my magic. I never deal in transformations, for they are not honest, and no respectable sorceress likes to make things appear to be what they are not."

'You never talk about your life before they let you be Princess again,' says Dorothy crossly. 'I s'pose being a farm girl isn't very exciting next to being ruler of all of Oz...but I'd like to hear about it some time, all the same.' )

The producer mutters something containing the words 'prima donna' and a slur that would have earned a sock from Charlene if he hadn't been busy following his cousin. He doesn't really get worried, though, until Stephen ducks into a clearly-marked men's room. )

In the past, Charlene and Stephen find gainful employment during the day, and follow less-respectable pursuits during the night. In the present, Jon has Stephen's back. (For those of you keeping score, this is a wifeless AU.)

Stephen eventually lands a job at the Hair Force. She has to dress as a guy when she's on the clock, but there's enough room for flamboyancy that she doesn't have to worry about checking her behavior to match. )

Yes, I'm finally posting that story I've been referring to for months now.

An AU/variation on I'll Be That Girl. This time around, not only is Stephen MtF, Charlene is FtM. (So if you thought I was a pronoun ninja before...)

Part of the loosely associated group of fics which I have cleverly decided to refer to as Transverse. Extras are on the index page.

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5

Charlene has to do a double take, but sure enough — it's just Stephen, the bratty cousin who cheats at checkers and once got run up the flagpole by the football team for making the mistake of paying too much attention to Hamlet. )

Title: Transverse (or, The Pronoun Ninja Diaries)
Series: Various - thus far, TDS/TCR and The Wizard of Oz.
Disclaimer: Follow the links. In short, fiction fiction fiction work of parody fiction.

A group of fics featuring transgendered versions of various characters. The fake news ones don't exist in the same universe, but some of them are AU to each other. (Also, they're open for exploration, which means that if you want to try writing/drawing/mixing in one of them, go for it.)

Subtitle is from the fact that the narration will pull all kinds of stealthy tricks to avoid using incorrect pronouns . . . even when that means leaving them out altogether.

Also, as long as I'm here, have a couple of resources:

Summary: Another orphaned prompt from [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest: 1082. Punditslash, Character!Stephen Colbert, Stephen's been obsessed with wooing his cousin Charlene for years. What no one knew was that he's more interested in becoming her than he is in dating her.

Title is from the BNL song. The original idea was to write something depressing, but it sprung a happy ending on me. Mirror on the AO3.

(As a footnote, two old friends of mine have come out as trans in the past couple of weeks. Is there something in the water?)

This 'verse is open for exploration, and has been played in here.

Womanhood is supposed to be a mystical quality reserved for teachers and mothers and the Virgin Mary, and now all of a sudden Charlene — the bossy cousin who always loses to Stephen at checkers, for crying out loud! — is walking into class with curved red lips and a sashay in her step! )
