Real cute story, always down for trying to subvert the more toxic tropes that come with these kindsa stories~
And seriously, Nico, try chilling. I know your tastes are very uniform, so maybe try just reading the shit you like? It's a big fuckin' website my guy, plenty here for you to chose from. (Also: real shitty assumptions in that review about people in that one there, way to slip the mask)

This is a really sweet, cute story of who I imagine is a transwoman and her partner. I think you did a good job allowing the reader to infer what they want from the story, the lack of pronoun usage for Bambi and whether she transitions between their first date and the end when love is proclaimed really allowed some imagination to the narrative. Granted, it was a bit short but the "snapshot" worked really well in this case. Stories like this really resonate with me since being loved for 'who you are' and not 'what you are' seem few and far between in tg fiction circles and rarely do they satisfy that romancy feeling without butchering trans people or pronouns or anything else to remind the reader that they are not what they appear to be. You avoided many of those issues by keeping it simple but solidifying the transition at the end by having Margo using her new name, Bambi. It was sweet and wholesome and, especially, without many glaring grammatical mistakes.

(Leaving a rating to counterbalance NicoR0bin's usual review bombing.)
This was a cute little tale of I'm assuming a trans girl (or nonbinary person?) and their butch wife! Stopping at crossdressing is usually not my cup of tea, I much prefer when HRT gets involved, but this was short enough that it didn't frustrate me on this end. And I want to stress these are thoughts coming from my personal biases! The story is absolutely fine as it is, a bit cute, and well written.

So... let me get this straight. A lesbian falls in love with a dude just because they put on make-up and wear dresses? What a load of crap..
Author's Response: Nico, I see the point that you're trying to make even if I don't agree with the conclusion or appreciate your tone. To me, this is more like the story of a trans woman discovering that the animosity she felt towards her roommate was rooted in a fundamental dissatisfaction with her own life and assumed identity. Hope that helps!
