Lex’s list of Trans Fanfic

512px-LCD-Computer-PC-Screen.svgLex’s incomplete list of affirming fanfic about trans characters.

Note:  always read the header information for a fic, to make sure that you don’t start reading something that’s going to upset you.

This list starts when the general fics and slowly gets more sexually and bodily explicit.

Never Any Prologue by odditycollector

Doctor Who.

Warnings: None: General audiences. Spoilers for Time of Angels and nothing after that.

River Song. The first time she meets the Doctor.

We Will Question All Your Answers by ofawriterspen


Warnings: None: General audiences.

River Tamm, and the crew of Serenity.

Once Upon a Time by busaikko

Harry Potter.

Warnings: None: General audiences.

Dudley Dursley. This is a particularly wonderful future-set story for Dudley and Harry.

The Indefinite Fine Line by trascendenza

Stargate: SG-1.

Warnings: None: General audiences.

Sam Carter. The last shreds of denial.

Little Sister by invisble_lift


Warnings: None: General audiences.

Tosh, who as a child met an apprentice geisha in a park.

Necessity by Who Shot AR

Little Women.

Warnings: None: General audiences. No warnings.

Jo March has been growing his hair long.

Certificate of Life by gelasius

White Collar

Warnings: None: General audiences.

Neal Caffrey. Written for a prompt of mine: Peter knows all the intimate details of Neal’s life, and he’s used each of them against him, except for this.

Modern Love by penknife


Warnings: General audiences. No warnings.

Discworld Dwarves in Ankh-Morpork and human conventions of gender presentation.

Uncertainty Principle by Peahen

Iron Man (2008 Movie). Teen audiences.

Warnings: Some romantic allusions.

Tony Stark. The prompt that inspired this fic was “a character doubting their gender identity when they find themselves same-sex attracted”.

To Extend a Tendril of the Heart by Who Shot AR

Sense and Sensibility.

Warnings: General audiences. Some romantic allusions.

Mr. Henry Dashwood, explorer of the dangerous seas near the South Pole, attends a dinner party and gains hopes for the future.

What You Will by baffledking

Twelfth Night.

Warnings: Teen audiences. Directly about a romantic/sexual relationship.

Viola was more alive as Cesario, the Duke’s man, then she could ever be as his wife.

Intemperance by Basingstoke

Sherlock Holmes (2009 Film).

Warnings: Mature audiences. Directly about sexual relationships. Self administered surgery.

“Intemperance,” a story from the secret journals of Doctor John H. Watson, intimate friend and long-time companion of the infamous Sherlock Holmes: A most curious and instructive report of the great man’s improbable fecundation, gestation, and parturition.

Thursday’s Child by Telesilla

Stargate: Atlantis.

Warnings: General audiences and then explicitly about a romantic/sexual relationship.

Rodney McKay is a man of many parts. John would never have guessed.

You’ve Written Your Own Directions (And Whistled the Rules of Change) by kyuuketsukirui

Stargate: Atlantis.

Warnings: Mature audiences. Directly about sexual relationships and explicit about genitals and history.

Rodney’s main criteria when browsing personals is intelligence, or at least the appearance thereof. Correct spelling and grammar, that sort of thing. As it happens, this narrows down the field considerably.

Sleeping Underneath Your Skin by kyuuketsukirui

Harry Potter.

Warnings: Teen and up audiences. Directly about a romantic relationship.Explicitly about body/genitals.

There are a lot of things Ginny tries not to think about.

A Hundred Happy Things by busaikko

Stargate: Atlantis.

Warnings: Explicit. Directly about a romantic relationship. Reference to the verbal abuse of a child and physical violence

Sheppard. Harlequin AU (no Stargate). Kaleb’s long gone, Jeannie’s got a career, Madison has problems, Rodney’s got Inner Power!, and Sheppard… is pretty much the same.

The Forbidden Dance by busaikko

Due South.

Warnings: Contains explicit sex scene. Also crossing dressing/gender play.

Fraser. This is pretty much a sex scene between a transman and cisman. It also includes crossdressing/gender play (and is about that as well). Explicit descriptions of genitals.

Imaginary Boys by busaikko

Stargate: Atlantis.

Warnings: Explicit

Directly about a romantic and sexual relationship and dysphoria around that.

Sheppard. Mitchell and Sheppard get together during The Return, and if it wasn’t impossible it’d be perfect.

Dudley Dursley and the Elusive Difference by Kahvi

Harry Potter.

Warnings: Mature audiences. Graphic depictions of violence and underage sexual situations.

This story is not about transsexuality at all. Rather, Dudley is intersex. I’m including it, though, for its brilliant avoidance of pronouns.

Further things

The Transfic Master List (Archive)

New Transfic Master List (on Pinboard)

This has almost everything that Travis (kyuuketsukirui) has come across that features trans characters, expect for some particular stories that are offensive.

Some of the fics on this list are included for the sake of completeness and are not respectful, authentic or affirming. (That might have changed, now, but the first list did have some bad fic on it.)

Please take note both of header information (warnings about ratings, stories elements, characters) and if you’re not enjoying it, stop reading.

If you like a story, please leave a comment. Even something as simple as “I really liked this.” will be well received. Most places will accept anonymous comments. The Archive of Our Own (which I’ve linked if I had choice) also has a “kudos” button, which is akin to ‘liking’ things on facebook.

You can also search the Archive of Our Own for all fics tagged with genderqueer, gender related, transexuality or tagged as featuring trans male or trans female characters.
