This is a serious poll, 'cause some of the characters in my work-in-progress are facing this situation.
Imagine that you are a romantically and sexually inexperienced young man from a conservative and homophobic society.
Sure thing, I'm a first-rate roleplayer
Ugh, do I have to?
I *am* most of that
Imagine, further, that you have fallen in love and are enjoying a first-rate adolescent romance with a person who is physically indistinguishable from a lovely girl of your own age and social class.
Wait, what's this "physically indistinguishable" clause?
I can't imagine *ever* loving a girl
I can't imagine *any* adolescent romance being at all nice
That's not love, it's infatuation
But actually the girl is *really* a member of a race of hermaphrodites, genetically engineered as warriors. She's had her mind transferred temporarily to the girl body. She's 100% honest about this; you've known it since you met her. Your homophobic native land (currently far away) would count you her as a Bad Relationship.
That makes it more interesting!
That's gross and horrible!
Keep the romance far from home, and don't think about the real body
My imagination just broke.
The girl dies trying to save you from a Fate Not Nearly As Bad As Death But Still Pretty Bad.
stupid girl, why'd she do that?
now I am miserable
The loss of the girl-body then causes her to return to her own body, the hermaphrodite warrior one.
Yay, she's not *dead* dead
I'm glad I knew about that body or I'd call the author on this one
I see where this is going...
Now, remembering stuff like "homophobic background" and "inexperienced", how do you react?
Yummy yummy, more bits to play with!
I love her still, but I can't even stand to hold her hand or kiss her
She is my best friend but I can't love her
I want to be her love but she had better be ultra-femmy in public
Too freaky. I break up with her.
If we do not break up, we have a sex scene that's ...
Confused and pretty funny to read
good at first but ends really badly
We are true love and defy my social background
We break up but stay good friends
We break up and stay angry forever
One or both of us dies tragically (again)
