As for seeing the story from Dee Dee's perspective, I think it was far more effective to see her from the outside. It would have been hard to pull it off otherwise, in my opinion.
I really did like the way you painted Dee Dee. She seemed sweet and simple. More clumsy and distractible than bimbo, which I think is a good thing and much more convincing. It would have taken a lot to convince any woman not raised to use her body as most of the stories tend to do, much less convince a woman that recently had been a man.
Author's Response: Thanks, mignon. Since the stories involve super science, it's only a small step to add "Total Recall" - type tech, which would allow for the imprinting of traits that would normally take years to development (see my latest story, "The Female Liberation Front"). The whole Bimbo subgenre is interesting but over-used and I wanted to make Dee Dee a lovable ditz. She was actually inspired by a variant of my character at a roleplay site, who was accidentally over-dosed with Bimboification and had a series of ditzy adventures. It was fun to bring her back!

A cute story but I would have much rather have seen it from Dee Dee's perspective than Micheal's.
Author's Response: I think the First Person voice is overdone, and I'm trying to explore the genre from other points of view. Also, unless you go for the First Person Omniscient, you can't get vital information to the reader.
