So far this is one of my favorite stories on this site, mainly because I don't like the sexual "Oh, I'm a woman now.. Time to fondle and masturbate, then go shopping" type stories but rather I like the psychological coping.

That being said, I am slightly worried about the direction of this story mainly because of the supposed psychiatrist Megan. She is a trained psychiatrist AND a friend of Michael, yet she instantly started to want to turn Michael into a woman in mind as well as body. Although I understand that Michael has to blend in, it doesn't have to go that far.

Which is weird since Michael still has 2 big anchors to his masculinity.

One being his family, despite being lost with a very minor chance of finding them (Love the story on them by the way, that Dwayne is one grim and dark guy) I wouldn't give up no matter what.

Second being the Deadline, 12 years maybe a long time in a social standpoint but it's not forever,
that fact alone would make me not lose sight of who I am inside. Would be a bit weird if after 12 years he gets his body back but thanks to his friend and psychiatrist he now thinks and acts a woman.

Like I said, so far really good and exiting to read, looking forward to more. Definitely deserves a 10 from me.

Author's Response: Hi Yami, thank you so much for the wonderful review and high score. As for your first line, you nailed it. Stories that involve people wanting to change sexes, I get, but the ones where the masculine protagonist is instantly feminized hopping into the sack with their original sex is unrealistic. I wanted to take a risk and approach this story as realistic as possible but still leave it open for things to possibly occur but in their right time. I can see from your review, and many others, it is a welcome approach. As for Megan, she has a lot of learning herself to do. This is not her area of specialty, and Michael's Gender and Species Dysphoria are unique. I don't want to runin anything, but the story is complete in my head and I know where I will take it. Until then, keep reading, and thanks again for reading. Megan
