It's July 4th weekend and it's time to unveil the Body/Genderswap fic!
The “Who Are You” Ficathon focuses on the theme of identity through bodyswaps and genderswaps. Often bodyswap and genderswap fics are only used to explore a character’s sexual identity and in doing so, hook them up with another character. This can lead to gratuitous sex scenes. And hey, those are an enjoyable part of fanfiction, but there’s a whole other world of identity that is not explored when stuck in this highly sexualized corner. The "Who Are You" Ficathon's goal is to explore the greater breadth and scope of identity.
Everyone who's participating, please post a link to your story in the comments! If you're not finished with your story yet, don't panic. Please try to finish as soon as you can (hopefully by next weekend).
