  1. Summary

    So I have all this research I've done on what it was like to be female and live as a man before the tech we have now was mastered, because younger me was nothing if not a terrified AU Hermione trying to find himself in the library stacks. Even tracked down the English translation of "Memoir of a Man's Maiden Years".

    Reidentification happened - by which I mean I am not a man even though I was pretty sure I was for ten years - but I still had all these things about gender and sex in the first half of the twentieth century pinball-bouncing around in my head, and then... then I stumbled onto "YOUR ASSHOLE DAD'S CASTLE IS BACK AGAIN" right when I was playing though Portrait of Ruin for the first time.

    The contrast between "tunic that'd make an early-renaissance Florentine boy on the prowl blush" and "layers and longcoat and every possible way to obscure the lines of one's body that I ever personally used" as two designs for the same character all struck me, and after a few months... the rest, I suppose, is this alternate history. (Chapter one of part 2 was written first.)

    Summary

    The wind changes and blows the smell of death right into Trevor’s face. He suppresses a gag.

    “Something has happened with Alucard,” Sypha deduces, her hand still clasped over her nose.

    Trevor chances another look at the scantily-clad corpses fluttering about in the wind like a pair of scarecrows on Alucard’s doorstep.

    “...Dare I say you may be onto something, Sypha.”

    Summary

    Dio is a Left clone working for Cradle Pharmaceutical, the only company in the world that provides "cybertreatment" -- a series of codes that can be used to 'hack' the human body and heal any injury or illness. Naturally, those codes are in high demand.

    When he's reassigned to protect the GAULEM, a machine containing Cradle's database of codes, he doesn't think much of it... Until he meets her.
