One of my friends and I have an ongoing saga about the adventures of a female version of the main characters from our favorite book series, and today we were discussing whether it was possible to turn that character into something that wasn't a cliche or not. I hold out hope, but he is skeptical.
Now, I'm wondering: What do you think a genderswapped, always-a-girl version of Napoleon would be like? What about Illya?
(Yes, I've written about that...but I'm thinking of expanding it, and I'm toying with a lot of different ideas, so I'm interested in seeing what people think and why.)
