I am a recent member, though I have only currently found time to make a first post on these forums. As some may perhaps be able to tell from the title, I am leaning towards a discussion that is far from new, though seemingly lacks expression in this particular respect.
I myself am a writer, over the past years principally concerned with transformative narratives and stories which do find some measure of change in a character's condition; be that physical, mental, spiritual or otherwise relative to the dynamic of the tale. Also, as a fan of the Jekyll & Hyde concept in its various mediums, I have been pondering a few intepretations of the classical dichotomy, though it has been this particular inversion which has caught my eye as being so rare in expression.
Though many are probably familiar with the transgender variant of the tale which finds Jekyll, or his equivalent, transfigured into a woman (Sister Hyde, Ms. Hyde, Sexual Chemistry) there are even fewer inversions of this which find a female Jekyll becoming a male Hyde in our own sub-communities. In my own experience of TG fiction, I have only found a couple of such works and even they were more liberal intepretations of the idea.
Considering this, I would like to present the topic for discussion, as I would be intrigued to consider the views of others in this respect, and their own appreciation of how such a work might unfold.
