1. A type of "what if" fanfic where one (or more) of the characters is the opposite gender from
canon but otherwise has the same personality
and back-story. This can either
happen as a part of the plot, or simply be a given. Most often it is a male character that
female, in which he is referred
to as femme!character or girl!character. The female equivalent is male!character.
2. Fanart where the character is the opposite gender from
3. Partial genderswitch happens almost exclusively to male characters, when
they, as part of the plot, gain some female parts
(boobs, vagina, womb) but also
retain some male parts
4. One of the devices used
to make M-preg
5. A hell of a lot of fun to write.
I just wrote this great genderswitch
fic where Voldimort turned Draco into a girl to punish him and then Harry knocks
him... er... her up.
genderswitched Ed Elric, because he's pretty enough to be a girl so why not take it the rest of the way.
