To be quite honest, I was guessing that her father had hired a mad scientist to instigate the transformation. I will sound like an egotist, but I pride myself on my clairvoyance in regards to plot devices. I was tremendously and delightfully surprised to find that I was completely wrong.
Author's Response: The original concept had actually LIly being the one responsible (on purpose), but then she said 'Nope, gonna be ~awesome~ instead!'

Perfection. Please write another. I've faved you as an author for motivation. :)
Author's Response: Aw, thank you very much! I'm already hard at work at my next short story =D It appears my writing bug has no intention of letting go.

I didn't spot anything in your writing to suggest (USA) English might not be your first language... So don't worry!. Thanks for a nice read. I hope the Fairy Godmother customer service doesn't mess them up too bad. Oh, and we have to meet Lily's dad, even if we don't like him.
Author's Response: Thank you! Sadly, a confrontation with Lily's dad was just not in the cards. Any such scene I attempted to write rang hollow or resolved nothing - some people are sadly incapable of change, nor do they necessarily get what they deserve. The one with the capacity for change here was Lily, who now strives for independence. Baby steps :)

So much talent! First off, FtM is rare, but I enjoy it too. And you have a very special telling of it. I feel there is much to be learned from this story, that what is interesting is not just the person transforming, but the person who is there with them. Both are mainly hetero, and watching the tension of Lily between her love for Alex as an individual (personality and behaviour), contrasted against her own sexual desire for the male-Alex who seems to be erasing the old Alex... it annoys the hell out of Alex, but delights us readers to no end! I could read a thousand stories with this same structure and would never get bored, and yet for me, this is the first time I've seen something like it. Keep up the excellent work!
Author's Response: Wow, first of all, thank you! To call my little drabble talent makes me blush :) You've also really nailed Lily's struggle! I was hoping that the text, filtered through Alex' perception, still conveyed what upset her. I've also never read a story which addresses how scary it would be to see a loved one go through such a change. All the stories where the protagonist is unaware of the changes, that obliviousness extends to the rest of the cast. So when you mix in great personality changes as well it becomes rather tragic - the old person dies and nobody even remembers to mourn them. Well, Lily remembers! And she's not gonna just take it!

I really like this story. you don't see many good female to male story. I really like it when people try something new. Great Job.
I love Doctor Who. I'm actually meet Matt Smith at Comic-Con in New Orleans
Author's Response: Thank you! Really glad you're liking it :) Also, really jealous of you, heh! I like Matt Smit a lot, but I think I'll always like David Tennant best. It helps that he makes a weirdly hot woman. (Seriously, look up Davina)

I got so into this story that I was wondering what Alex and Lily were up to while I was at work last night...Then there was a new chapter this morning when I got home. I love FtM stories and this one rocks. ;)
Author's Response: Thank you very much! =D Really happy you enjoy it!

Moving better,enjoying the read! Waiting for the pay off!
Author's Response: Glad to hear you think the pace has improved :) Thank you! The pay off is proving to be tricky, haha. These two crazy kids just had to go and develop personalities. Oh well, the best-laid plans...

I like where this is going. A slow fade into something new. ;)
Author's Response: Thank you very much! That means quite a lot coming from you :) I remember reading your (great) stuff while on my quest to find good F2M stories.

Nice story, has pretty solid character development so far. I love the way you convey the witty sense of humor, it really adds some fun and happiness to the story that a lot of the other good quality stuff on this site lacks. All in all, I really wish there was a 4.5 button xD.
Author's Response: Thank you very much =D Your compliment to the humor made my day.

Excellent chapter,oh thou you moving very slow!
Author's Response: Thanks for your feedback, I appreciate it! =D I am indeed moving quite slow; I kinda like seeing the transformation unfold bit by bit. I don't want to bore my audience though - I'll try pick up the pace now, which should be easy now that the exposition/character introduction is mostly done.
