Inspired by a discussion on the WildMassGuessing page, ''[[ Princess]]'' is a ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' {{fanfic}} by Tropers/{{chelonianmobile}}.

One ordinary day at the zoo, the penguins overhear Julien getting his medical checkup. However, the veterinarian refers to Julien as a female. The penguins are at first baffled, but little clues start to build up, and when Julien is questioned, he reveals that technically the vet was right; Julien is, in fact, [[{{Transgender}} female]]. Unfortunately for Julien, none of the zoosters, including himself, understand the first thing about the condition, and the next few days become increasingly difficult.

Obviously not to be confused with [[Film/{{Princess}} the 2006 film of the same name.]]

!!This ''ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' FanFic contains examples of:

* AnimalGenderBender: Julien's gender identity caused problems in the matriarchal lemur society. [[spoiler:Later, he and Joey bond when Joey reveals that he's suffered similarly as [[KangarooPouchRide a male kangaroo with a pouch]].]]
* BattleInTheRain: [[spoiler:Julien against the Rat King.]]
* TheBeard: Marlene assumes Julien was using her for this, and is ''very'' unhappy about it.
* BrainBleach: Skipper, upon contemplating the idea of Julien having a heat period, wishes to "scrub my brain. Preferably [[KillItWithFire with fire]]".
* BuffySpeak: According to Julien, female lemurs have a "thing that looks like a ... thing". WordOfGod is that there are very few in-character and remotely tasteful ways to say "giant clit".
* ComingOutStory
* ContinuityNod: The fossas from the first ''Film/{{Madagascar}}'' movie are mentioned.
* DarkerAndEdgier
* EasySexChange: Discussed and averted. With resident MadScientist Kowalski in the picture, he ''could'' quite easily change Julien's sex, but Skipper thinks it's a bad idea because the humans will notice. [[spoiler:Kowalski offers anyway, and Julien refuses, having come to terms with who he is and being enough of a {{Narcissist}} to be unwilling to risk "jinxing" the rest of himself.]]
* ExoticEquipment: Julien, like real female ringtails, has a pseudopenis, which helped him pass for male to the non-lemur zoosters for so long.
* GilliganCut: Julien declares he will take the penguins' contempt with dignity, and the very next sentence shows him engaging in...
* HeartbreakAndIceCream
* {{Narcissist}}: Julien still is one.
* NarrativeProfanityFilter: Julien tells Skipper to do "something technically impossible". Context suggests it was "suck my cock" or something similar.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Mort.
* PassFail: Julien can pass as male quite easily to non-lemurs. To ''other lemurs,'' however ...
* RecursiveCrossdressing: Julien's occasional crossdressing is because he gets a kick out of people not realising his birth sex even when he's dressed like it, according to Maurice.
* [[spoiler:RedemptionInTheRain]]
* SelfHarm: Aged twelve, Julien plucked his own fur from the places his scent glands should have been, but stopped because it hurt enough to make him feel worse.
* ShownTheirWork: Julien, being a female-anatomied ringtail, lacks the wrist spurs and scent glands possessed by the males, and has the ExoticEquipment mentioned above. Skipper also mentions the avian W/Z sex chromosomes.
* StupidSexyFlanders: Maurice mentions that, to other lemurs, Julien still looks like an attractive female, which makes things rather awkward.
* {{Transgender}}
* UnusualEuphemism: Skipper describes himself as having been "such a cloaca".
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Julien's fondness for still wearing dresses is brought up. [[spoiler:Eggy also takes to wearing pink flowers and calling himself "Princess Eglantina" in the epilogue.]]
