Summary: Something I have noticed about reader inserts is that the reader is almost always CIS heterosexual (or bisexual). Thatís fine and dandy, as Iím sure plenty of actual readers areóbut what about opening up the possibility to readers that arenít and might like to see something closer to a representation of themselves?

What I would like to see is a fan fiction where the READER (not the canon character, not an OC) is non-CIS, non-heteroromantic, non-heterosexual, a combinationÖor even all at the same time. Itís something Iíve been trying to expand upon in my own writing (though I need to do more), and Iíd like to see other people try their hand at doing so as well.

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS:

1. It is the reader that must be the non-majority.

2. You may do what you need to do with whatever romantic interest(s) you have, but if they are a canon character from something, do try to keep them in character (unless youíre one of those AU writers that donít care about characterization).

3. Do your research. Be respectful.

4. Keep in mind that popular media portrayals arenít necessarily correct. For instance, binding your chest with ace bandages is severely unhealthy. Your reader character might not know that, but it might be nice if you gave your readers a headís up in an authorís note when things like that come up.

6. Remember that there is a difference between a story where a character being (for example) bigender is the entire point, and one where the character just is. Iím asking for the latter, but I wonít stop you from writing the former.

7. If you do the latter, make sure the fact that they are (another example) asexual comes up. Obviously, the reader character will have other interests, problems, and thoughts than their sexuality, but if they never discuss it and waltz away happily with your favorite boy from SnK, thatís not actually completing the challenge.

8. You donít have to go the extreme route of any choice you make. If your reader character is a CIS bisexual girl and she ends up with CIS heterosexual boy from Once Upon A Time, thatís fine, so long as you actually wrote her as bisexual.

9. Remember that sexuality and romanticism can be entirely different!

10. This challenge is open to any length youíd like: drabble collections, one shots, and novel length stories are all applicable.

11. This challenge is open to any sort of story, fan fiction or original or crossover or whatever, so long as it is written in the second person point of view.

Thatís it for now. If you feel that I have said or requested anything rude, insensitive, or otherwise ignorant, do feel free to message me so I can correct my mistakes. (:
