  1. Once upon a time, there was a little prince, who never really felt like a prince. They were drawn to "feminine" things, like dresses and dolls and make up. And while girls don't have to even like feminine things, this royal felt like girl fit them better than boy. They always wished to be a girl since they were little.
    But in their teens they learned more about trans people, and realized that if they identified as a girl, that would mean that they were a girl. They realized that they had always really been a girl.

    But her parents would not hear of such things. Once she came out to them, they refused to accept that she was a girl and banned her from "feminine" things, thinking that would somehow stop her from being a girl. She was forced to remain in the closet, only ever revealing her true self to her best friend. She was forced to only learn and do things that her parents considered "boyish". Sword fighting being the only one she actually enjoyed.

    So the young princess grew up, unable to show her true self to her people. Sheltered by her parents. Her parents kept her hidden from the public as much as her parents could get away with. Her younger brother, on the other hand, they took great pride in.
    He was the heir. He loved his sister and accepted her, but could not do much about how horrid their parents were.

    The princess had to stay in the closet... Until one day...

    On the way to a meeting with a neighboring kingdom (which she of course was not invited to, since her parents considered her the black sheep in the family), her parent's train hit another train head on.

    Her parents were killed.

    She was depressed for about a month, but then decided that she actually didn't care much. Her parents never cared for her. They were ashamed of her. Their deaths would not change the mental abuse and transphobia they had shown her her entire life. They were not worthy of being called her parents. Their deaths did not mean that she owed them any respect.

    Her brother was more torn up about it, but finally got better after two months of mourning. Once he got out of his depression, he made a shocking proclamation:
    "There is no better person to rule this kingdom than Riley. They deserve it more than I do. I relinquish my rights to the crown to them."

    Riley was shocked. A few weeks later, her brother left to fight in a war. He writes home sometimes.

    Today Riley is 17. She struggles with her gender identity. Now that her parents are gone, she is trying to regain the love for her real gender and overcome the transphobic insults, misgendering, and invalidation her parents had forced upon her.
    Will she come out to her subjects? Will she be able to be herself? Or will transphobia keep her in the closet? How will things work out for her?

    In just two months, she will be crowned ruler of the kingdom. Will she stay in the closet and accept being crowned a king? Or will she accept who she really is, and take her rightful position as Queen?
    Or will the council manage to get rid of her first?
  2. Name: Riley Chedelle
    Age: 17 (will turn 18 in a few months)
    Gender: female
    Transgender Or Cis (non-Trans): trans
    If trans, are they out about it?: only to best friends. Will probably be out about it later to the whole kingdom though
    Pronouns: she. For Characters that she is not out to, they only know her as "he"
    Personality: takes little shit, and will take no shit once monarch; sometimes dysphoric when dealing with transphobia; reserved except to friends, since she can only really be her true self around friends at the moment. When around friends she's very talkative and when she can be herself she's quite bright and bubbly. When around people she is not out to, she is quiet and reserved, and presents herself as a tough, brave prince who doesn't take any shit from anybody. She cares a lot for her little sibling, and wishes for them to open up to her. But she tries not to push them.
    Position: prince; MC
    Extra: Actually really enjoys fencing and sword fighting. Also hand to hand combat is fun for her too.

  3. Name: Leone' Chedelle

    Leone' is Riley's shadow, believe it or not Riley can speak to her and she can speak back, she also has the power to move away from Riley and move freely on her own, like a shadow without an object making it.
    Leone' lives in a "4th dimension" all people see her as normal shadow, but that is because she only let's Riley see her real self.

    Age: 17 (will turn 18 in a few months)

    Gender: Female

    Personality: Her personality is a lot like Riley's, only she does have a calmer side, but still never hesitates to kick someone's ass when they bother Riley. She also has that feminine side to her, the side Riley was never allowed to show. She is smart and collected and an amazing listener.

    Position: Same as Riley

    Extra: Leone' enjoys reading and being quiet, just strolling along. But that would be weird, she needs Riley to look like a normal shadow. She also loves fencing with Riley.

    If you were to look closely, you would almost say that she was not even Riley's shadow, she has a few differences to her.

    Appearance: Shadow (what she looks like to most people a black shape on a surface)

    [​IMG] only Riley sees her this way ((ignore the wings))
