Synopsis

James was woken up by the feeling of his insides being shredded. His chest hurt, stung and ached. His hips felt like they were being twisted and sculpted from within.
When morning comes around, he wakes up in a body that doesn't feel like his. In a desperate attempt to figure things out, he calls his ex-best friend Katie to help him understand what is happening to him and maybe reconcile the friendship they destroyed.
Content warnings for depictions of extreme gender dysphoria. Some transphobia. Themes of depression.

      Status: finally, some answers!
      Jun 12, 2020

      DetectiveRed has crafted a lovely story with Newly Not Cis, one that I have absolutely enjoyed reading these past few weeks. So I figured it was high time that I should leave a review. 

      This story is a slow boil of tension, joy, and change. As someone who deals with a lot of teenagers, the characters seem realistic and lifelike, even if I don't think I'd like to meet all of them.

      I love that this is an inversion on the typical trans/gender bender story. It starts on the same point, miraculous transformation, but rather than being met with open arms it's greeted with dysphoria and panic. It doesn't rest on being clever subversion, however. It uses that start to tell a story of internal change. Of coming to terms with your identity. And hopefully, James will be able to finally realize that he can fight for who he wants to be. He just has to learn a little more first.

      I love the way this story is written.

      The perspective of the two protagonists is balanced very well. I especially love the attention to dysphoria and adjustment.

      It's such an interesting reversal of how people generally transition. 

      Great job!
