Because, it just occured to me that the main dividing line between Nanoha and a Shounen is the fact that the Nanoha-verse is overwhelmingly filled with females.
Nice, I have never had the thought that Nanoha started out as a guy in fanfiction, your muse alone makes me want to bring my wallet out and throw bills at the monitor.

FUND IT MAN!

Oh, about the overwhelming female-to-male-ratio and the ambiguous yuri in the series helps increase corporate patronage, with 7 arc 's way of keeping their fans in suspense mode, you know what I mean...

There's your answer.
But I thought the Het is Ew camp isn't THAT strong here that writing a male Nanoha (and strictly, a Male Nanoha only) wouldn't be too heavily opposed here?

Here? I'm pretty sure you won't have opposition here. Thing is, you said:

and Nanya was responding to that in context of the whole community rather than just our corner of the Webz.

It's a question not of opposition - not here anyway - but whether anyone has the interest and would actually bother. Remember the economics line is "willing AND able". If the spirit is willing but the muse is weak, no dice. Muse is strong but unwilling, no dice either.

It might just become my Vacation Break Project....

One of the main obstacles is actually deciding on a name for Male Nanoha.

I'm currently looking at either Namihiko or Namito, but does anyone know why Nanoha was called Nanoha to begin with, and whether that name has a male equivalent?

I actually drafted up a story-plan about a year ago, but I think I lost it.

Anyway, on the table, I'm not going for a full genderbent. However, I have seriously considered switching Hayate and Yuuno's genders, while keeping Fate's gender constant.

The other option is to go the Negima Route, and make everyone Female save for Nanoha, and even make Yuuno female. But then, that'd turn it into a Harem Shounen. Let's see. Arisa, Suzaku, Fate, Female! Yuuno, Hayate....

The final option is to simply keep everyone's gender constant, except for Nanoha, who is male.

Other initial considerations Include:

How does Nanoha end up with Arisa and Suzaku as close friends? It's still possible, but the whole dynamics of their friendship would have to be looked into. Of course, there's always the possibility of Male OCs, or making Arisa and Suzaku male.

Take the traits of Nanoha. Stubborn, a Strong sense of righteousness, Highly Independent and self sufficient , Out to Befriend someone, mature for her age, quick to grasp concepts, etc, and genderflip them. The scary thing is, it's very easy to write Nanoha too much like a "smart" traditional Shounen hero, especially after you minus the fact that Nanoha rarely "worries", in the Negima sense of the word.

Also, will a Male Nanoha receive combat training by the time he receives Raising Heart? Will a Genderflip make it more likely that a male Nanoha would be trained in some of the Takamichi's fighting styles?

A ten year old male Nanoha might be a little embarrassed by Fate's outfit....

Not to mention that character dynamics between Nanoha and Chrono, Nanoha and Yuuno, and Nanoha and Fate would also be different, but that's the point of a Genderflip anyway.


Anyway, next week, once I'm freer, I might try to come up with a kind of Pilot Chapter regarding this concept. Tbe Muse is strong here, and believes it just might be willing.

How does Nanoha end up with Arisa and Suzuka? Nanoha slaps Arisa, they get into a catfight... and Suzuka tries to stop them.... and those two got into trouble I guess...

...

I am now totally getting this image of Manoha with rings on his fingers, wearing a fudora hat and a large purple fur coat with a cane in one hand and pimpslapping Arisa saying "dammit, I'm a pimp, not a magical girl!"

I imagine once Fate shows up, later in life it'll just be Arisa, Suzuka, and Fate all for Manoha's attention.

The think with a male Nanoha is that it creates a whole different character.


A Male Nanoha will act much differently then our canon Nanoha. Boys are more impulsive, especially during their teens, and act more rash.

Assuming that Male Nanoha has the same background as normal Hanoha, lonely childhood due to hospitalized dad, looking for a purpose in life. But he'll probably have male firiends, with Arisa and Suzaku more as satellites around his male friend group due to Male-Nanoha hitting Alisa when she was bullying, which got him straight into detention.

Somehow I can't get this idea out of my head that Male-nanoha will see his new powers in some sort of "Ally of justice" theme.

And as for Male-Nanoha and fem-Fate...


As Daneel once put it:

Yeah, Shonen Nanoha will have..... some problems understanding why her eyes are burned into his soul.

Hey, you all lucked out. I went home early from work today because sick. Now I can post a short that I might revisit in the future. But for now, enjoy.
