Hello! I am in need of some help~ I am a fantasy author, and I am currently working on a fantasy series. In this series, I've decided to have a nonbinary character. However, I am cis, and I was hoping I could speak with one (or more) nonbinary people about their experiences, as well as how I should build this character. I've already done quite a bit of research on nonbinary genders, but I don't know enough to fully flesh out the character, and I definitely think I should talk to people about their experiences and such in order to portray them accurately. Also, please know that I don't want to give too much away on this series for the sake of intellectual security (the first novel for this series is in editing right now so I have to be careful about what I post online or my head editor will murder me hahaha "^^), and because I wouldn't want to ruin the story if anyone who reads this wants to check it out. Therefore, I can't give away certain spoilers. So, some basic things: ~Because this is speculative fiction, I can portray things with a fantastical angle, and I definitely think their gender would factor into this, to a degree. I want to discuss this at length, and any ideas regarding this are welcome. ~I am not yet sure specifically what nonbinary gender (genderfluid, agender, etc etc) I would like this character to be, or if I should define that at all. ~Mages are a marginalized group in my story, and this character is a mage. I think this should be talked about, as well. Basic things about the character (thus far): ~Their name is Tomi Nakamura. They are my fantasy world's equivalent to Japanese. ~They are a shapeshifter mage, and this is important to the plot (I want to expand/play with this idea in relation to their gender). ~They come from a wealthy family, and their parents are supportive of their gender identity. However, my character doesn't agree entirely with their parent's worldview. ~Oh yeah, they're a teenager. XD ~They have a girlfriend, who has a child (by someone else), and they consider this child their own. ~I'm thinking they/them pronouns (and are what I'm sticking with for now) but not 100% sure it's what I wanna go with. ~They are bubbly and cute and huggable and have a huge heart. ~Idk that's about it that's all I can think of for now. I like them they are a babe? So, yes, that's about it. Any help anyone has to offer would be wonderful~!
