Trans Headcanons

Discussion in 'Fan Town' started by autopsyblue, Apr 24, 2016.

  1. Partially inspired by comments on recent threads about trans headcanons in the imported drama section, partially inspired by my own internal bitching, I present to you the ~*~KINTSUGI TRANS HEADCANON THREAD~*~. Feel free to post headcons, discussions about headcanons, snippets of elaborate AUs that involve the trans thing in both small and big ways, headcanons with explanations, headcanons with explanations that are like "I relate to this character so I wanted to explore this" or "I wanted to explore it" or no explanation at all, just "wouldn't it be interesting if ___ was [a gender that they do not appear to be in canon]?" Talk about the things you like, the things you've seen done well, the things you don't like and the things that haven't gone over so well, the tropes you're exploring, what you'd like feedback on, what you don't understand, anything, anything at all as long as it's trans and a headcanon, WITH THE FOLLOWING CAVEATS:
    1. Please avoid making a definitive statement about a characters transness or cisness if there's nothing in particular in canon that supports or disproves their gender identity either way. I see this a lot on Tumblr and it really bugs me as well as quite a few other people on here.
    2. Please respect people's identities. Someone's gender should generally not be brought into a discussion unless they put it there themselves. I don't think we'll have a problem with that on this site of all places but it never hurts to make it clear.
    3. Please also respect that someone's headcanon is not yours and doesn't have to be. Again I don't anticipate this being a problem, but it again doesn't hurt to say.
    OKAY GOGOGO!

  2. Particular reasons this was rolling around in my brain:
    1. It popped into my head that Ulrich could be trans and like, transition via his parent's money if not support if they become convinced he's not going to quit this and will instead insist on embarrassing them repeatedly. That is both yaaay and ouch.
    2. Definitely headcanoning Yumi as an egg mode trans man now. It just really, really fits with my experiences to almost an absurd degree, but that somehow seems like a bigger subject than trans!Ulrich.

    /me breaks down the door

    LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT TRANSWOMAN PORRIM. Which was born mostly because I was frustrated at terfs and honestly that would be fun to do. You know. And it was. SO FUN. Imagine the troll gender politics surrounding a transwoman jadeblood. Do trolls even have a word for this. HOW HARD WOULD SHE GET CULLED? Think of how shitty Horuss probably was about it too. WOW YOU'RE SO RARE AND SPECIAL PORRIM YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF YOUR MANLINESS. horuss no go away. BUT WHAT IF HORUSS YES?

    I also like to believe that there is at least one doomed timeline Kanaya that is a transman.

  4. Trans jadebloods ftw. My jade fantroll started out as male but has ended up in ambiguous gender territory and it's pretty damn fun.

    trans jadebloods are amazing
    I think someone somewhere mentioned the idea of an au with transman kanaya, and now I keep thinking about cosplaying that.

    I'm admittedly unsure as to how DFAB!Steven would work with canon, since Rose refers to him as Steven in her video. Although I suppose Garnet's future vision could've helped there. I'm curious about it though, any thoughts? :0

    Also, trans boy Dipper is an excellent headcanon. And I have always headcanoned Grenda as a trans girl, due to her comment about her voice changing?

    (And yes, Mabel would fucking murder you if you misgendered either of them. You do not get away with hurting Mabel's loved ones.)

    And while I mostly headcanon Terezi as a cis girl, I think NB!Terezi would be interesting to explore. (Though I think it's funnier if she's a cis girl who presents herself in a masculine way primarily so she can act offended when people assume she's a guy--I mean, she is the only one of them who's any good at trolling people, and it seems like she'd get a kick out of fucking with people like that. But I can also see there being some actual genderweird there? Shruuuuug.)

    I honestly just kind of assumed she was meant to be a transgirl? Like canonically? Just it was never explicitly stated and is vague enough that people can pretend she's not.

    I thought you were referring to Terezi here and was extremely confused, but yeah, that's always been my assumption.

    i rather like the headcanon that rhys from borderlands is a trans man, and i think i remember someone making a great post about it somewhere with details why but i don't remember what it said and mostly like it because i can go "hey this character i like could be like me!"

    also i love this character but totally missed she was trans until it was said blatantly (how do people read subtext? what even is subtext? :mystery:):

    how did no one mention Undertale yet
    I headcanon
    Frisk and Chara
    as nonbinary, as well as Napstablook. I mean, I'm pretty sure it's the closest thing to canon NB representation we'll get in mainstream stuff before a long while. I hate how it's presented as "100% canon sorry i don't make the rules uwu" by the fandom, though. ... Well, except for Napstablook where I can kinda see the argument for it actually being canon.
    Also, I love the idea of Mettaton being a trans guy in human AUs.

    Another fandom: Anghel and Nageki from Hatoful Boyfriend as trans boys, as explained by myself and others on the HB thread. Not to mention Albert Alain Alkan (Sakuya's butler in the sequel) as agender (and aro/ace) for the obvious joke.
