First of, I'm afraid this idea has some Unfortunate Implications
. If it has, forgive me. -_- I can be a clueless, stupid idiot at times. No, most of the time.
I had this plotbunny while reading the Playing With
entry on Gender Bender
. Remember the "boy is a casanova, one of the girls turns him into a woman, boy learns An Aesop
" trope? This fic would be a brutal deconstruction, Puella Magi Madoka Magica
It would be: Hikaru is a casanova, Miki wishes Kyubei for Hikaru to become a girl, Hikaru hates his new body, all of his relationships change and is kidnapped and becomes a lab study (maybe more bad things would have happened before Hikaru became a lab study?).
One day, after much experimentation, Kyubei appears to him and offered him the chance to make a contract with him. Hikaru's wish was: "I want my life back to normal." Since Kyubei isn't dumb (the soul gem would already come extremelly corrupted) rather than turning Hikaru back into a boy, he retgones him into a girl. Which means Hikaru starts losing his identity, too. Not to mention he has fight witches.
One day one his classmates, Fuyuka, asks Hikaru if he used to be a boy. Turns out Fuyuka Ekiguchi was once a boy, Fuyuhiko.
Fuyuhiko's father, Masatoshi always made clear to most people he preferred Fuyuhiko to Fuyuhiko's twin sister, Koharu. Koharu desperately longed for her father's affection, and tried to do so by acting like the perfect daughter from a wealthy family. But no matter how hard she tried, Masatoshi always preferred Fuyuhiko to her. So when Kyubei appeared and offered her a contract, her wish was "I wish father treated Fuyuhiko and I equally."
The wish retgonned Fuyuhiko into a girl. Only Kyubei, Koharu and Fuyuhiko remembered Fuyuhiko ever used to be a boy. Now Masatoshi had always being cold to both Koharu and "Fuyuka".
Like Hikaru, Fuyuhiko hated his new body, had trouble fitting in the social role of a woman (and his father was far more strict about it than Hikaru's parents) and the girl he loved was straight. By the time Koharu had told Fuyuhiko of his wish, he had started to think he had always been a girl.
The story is mainly about Fuyuhiko and Hikaru's friendship. I was originally having them fall in love, but I never wrote Boys Love
Is the idea bad? Too many unfortunate implications? If it's not awful, could I have some ideas?
